Honua Kai condo description
Honua Kai is Maui's newest and most luxurious five star resort, voted the number one vacation destination on Trip Advisor. Situated on North Kaanapali Beach, this oceanfront property is located just north of the Westin Kaanapali Villas. If you are looking for brand-new, luxurious accommodations on a beautiful beach with a lot of privacy, then this is for you!
This family friendly resort has 3 large pools and 5 hot tubs! The FORMAL Pool is an infinity-edge lap pool featuring two hot tubs and perfect ocean views. The OHANA Pool features a one hundred and twenty foot WATER SLIDE and a waterfall that cascades into the main swimming area. Natural lava rock forms an elevated hot tub that takes in the ocean views. The OHANA Pool also has a sandy beach and a shallow pool, great for the kids. The RIVER Pool features a meandering river that flows through smaller swimming holes and waterfalls.
There are two fitness centers, one in each building.
The suite is exquisitely appointed with top of the line features including Bosch appliances, granite counter tops, and elegant modern fixtures. State of the art thru and thru.
Our condo, Suite 316, is located on the 3rd floor in the south building, called HOKULANI. Our 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath unit is spacious at 700 square feet, plus a 145 square feet lanai. Our suite is south facing and enjoys both ocean and mountain views, and thanks to the suspended development next door, Suite 316 enjoys privacy with no neighbors nearby looking into the suite. Further, because the south facing condos in the Hokulani Building has no encroachment from neighboring lanais, it offers the most lanai privacy of any 1 Bedroom! Being a southern exposure suite, our lanai is not exposed to the NE trade winds common in Maui. Therefore Suite 316 is awarded with an abundance of perfectly warm sunshine year-round. We couldn't be any happier with this suite!
Key features of our condo includes:
**Designer furnished and fully-equipped kitchen, a high level of luxury and comfort.
**Large windows and doors to maximize views and natural light.
**Granite countertops in kitchen AND bathroom with warm wood cabinetry.
**Two flatscreen TVs, Blu-ray player, and Phillips Fidelio iPod/iPad speaker dock.
**Free local calls and free long distance to Canada and the US.
**King-size bed in bedroom with down comforter and pillow-top mattress.
**Queen sleeper sofa in living room.
**All windows have sheers and blackout drapery for a restful sleep.
**High quality linens and towels.
**Air conditioned and ceiling fans in living and master bedroom.
**Stainless steel Bosch appliances.
**In-suite Bosch washer and dryer.
**Large bathroom with frameless shower enclosure and separate tub.
**Custom floor-to-ceiling folding glass doors completely open leading to lanai, extending your living space.
**Lanai has large dining table with four chairs for alfresco dining and a single armchair and ottoman for relaxing.
**Boogie boards, beach chairs, beach umbrella and cooler in condo for you to use.
Self-parking is $12/day, payable at the front desk. There are no daily resort fees when booking with an Owner at Honua Kai, compared to going through the resort front desk and compared to many other resorts along Kaanapali Beach that charge daily resort fees at check-in.

We stayed in this Honua Kai condo the first week of September 2013. We could not have been happier with our time there. It was very easy booking through Maureen and VRBO as she was extremely helpful and responsive. We had no issues and no surprises. The condo itself was exactly as described - very clean, welcoming, and with all the comforts of home. The furnishings were very well maintained and comfortable. The condo is very spacious for 2 people with a beautiful view from the lanai. We were surprised by how much of the ocean we were able to see and enjoyed taking it all in with breakfasts in the morning. We had everything we could have possibly needed in the condo - including kitchen items, laundry, towels, beach chairs, and boogie boards. The resort itself is wonderful. We enjoyed the location which is very close to Lahaina town. There are also a few good spots within walking distance for breakfast and grocery items. The pools on-site are great - clean with lots of chairs available and very beautiful landscaping. You can't beat the beachfront location with easy access to the beach from different spots on the property. Having Duke's on-site is also another plus. We enjoyed a few dinners and lunches there and found the staff to be very courteous and responsive. Overall, we were extremely pleased with our stay and would highly recommend this to any one interested in going to Maui. We stayed for 4 nights out of 7 on the island and wish we had stayed more. We will definitely do so on our next visit!

Outstanding Stay at Honua Kai
Outstanding Stay at Honua Kai
My wife and I spent a wonderful week in June of this year. From the very start, everything went flawless. Our initial contact with the owner, Maureen, was quick and informative. She was very helpful and easy to talk to. Due to an airline cancellation, we were delayed getting there, and Maureen was flexible and cooperative. The description was accurate,and the unit was immaculate. Michelle met us in the lobby and gave us a thorough tour of the unit. We only had one very minor issue, and Michelle responded quickly. I would highly recommend staying there. There is not much more I can add to the other reviews about Honua Kai. It is a wonderful resort, with beautiful landscaping and located right on a quiet beach. My wife and I walked every morning to Whaler's Village, which was a great way to start the day.The first night, we picked up food at Aina's Gourmet Market and it was excellent. We stopped at the Safeway in Lahaina and picked up breakfast food for the week. We enjoyed the well equipped kitchen and ate breakfast there every morning. We also utilized the washer and dryer, and it allowed us to pack more lightly. The beach chairs and boogie board were most appreciated since you would be charged if you did not have those items. We rented a car, and I would recommend it. We were able to drive to Hana, various snorkleing locations, Haleakala Crater for a sunset---it was awesome---and a number of restaurants. Some of the restaurants I would recommend are Mama's Fish House, Sansei Seafood Restaurant, Duke's, Honokowai Okazuya & Deli, Teddy's Burgers, Ohana Tacos, and the Fish Market. In summary, our trip was fantastic and we would definitely return to Honua Kai, and Unit #316. Thank you Maureen, and Michelle.

What's Above GREAT
What's Above GREAT
The listing and pictures were right on the mark. Any questions that I had were quickly answered by the owner and her manager and they were also concerned enough to check how our stay was and how it could have been better at the termination of our stay. Just you and the companion or you and the six kids - the best kind of place to stay. Mom and Dad can swim in the ocean and the kids get a choice of three pools. Toys (flippers, paddleboards, floats) are available for a nominal fee. For lazy people, loads of places to lay in the sun. Maui is expensive so the fully equipped kitchen was a heavan sent, expecially with young one. Beds are like sleeping on clouds and I wish I knew where the owner got the most comfortable pillows. Shopping and fast food is a ten minute walk to a shopping mall with a large grocery store. As a Northerner I can olnly say that life couldn't get any better with the perfect weather, fantastic well maintained condo, great facilities. Book with confidence,........... Just waiting for next year!

My family and I had a lovely 18 day stay at the above property in March/April of 2013 and had a very positive experience. Beginning with the rental process, all our inquieries were answered promptly and correspondance with the owner was warm and courteous. Upon our arrival, we were greeted by the manager of the property without delay. The condo was very clean and well equipped, including all necessary household items such as detergent, papertowels etc, which instantly helped the housewife in me to settle into the advertised "home away from home" feeling. An added bonus were the lawn chairs, boogie boards and cooler we were allowed to use on our excursions to Maui's beautiful beaches. The condo is facing away from the pools and thus is indeed quiet and has an almost secluded feel to it. You can see the ocean from the balcony, but will have to go downstairs to the beach to see the sunset. Honua Kai itself is a wonderful place, especially if you have children. During our stay in Maui we did not come across another resort with such a fun and big pool area, and often chose to relax right there. The beach was lovely; it was never crowded, very gentle waves and even some decent snorkeling. And whales swimming by every day! We would highly recommend Honua Kai and the condo we stayed in. If you like contemporary, tasteful decor and new and modern amenities, you will be very pleased with this property, and share our great vacation experience.

Wonderful! Beautiful, spacious, luxurious condo, fresh and bright. It is quite well appointed with everything you might need. It is quiet and relaxing with a nice view of both the mountains and the ocean. The lanai is amazing, with the doors all the way open it is like having an outdoor living room! Our family of four (2 adults, 2 children ages 10 and 7) fit in the space very well. We loved the whole resort. It is a luxurious complex on a great beach and close to many other great spots. The busier Kaanapalli strip is minutes away by car and a healthy walking distance along a beautiful boardwalk. There is great snorkeling at Napili Bay and Kapalua Bay which are only a short distance away, as are the shopping and dining areas in Lahina. Our kids loved the different pools and the beach just in front of the resort. Exercisers will enjoy the gym or running on the beach or boardwalk. This is our third trip to Maui and we cannot recommend this place enough. Maureen was very easy to work with, reserving, checking in and out were a breeze. We can't wait to come back!

Beautiful Condo, Convenient Location
Beautiful Condo, Convenient Location
We stayed here for part of our honeymoon and had a lovely vacation. The condo is new, clean and the bathroom is HUGE. The location is perfect for exploring the island and we enjoyed having use of pool towels and the resorts many pools. Make sure you have breakfast at Duke's, but skip the super expensive little deli/coffee shop in the lobby. The condo looks out on an empty lot next door that will soon be a new resort. The entire wall of windows in the living room opens up to let in the cool breezes.

We had a fabulous time at Honua Kai in Maui!
We had a fabulous time at Honua Kai in Maui!
We couldn't have been happier with our experience staying at this rental at Honua Kai. We had never been to Hawaii before and the entire experience -- the rental unit, the hotel, the weather, the scenery, and all the time we spent at the pools and beaches -- far exceeded our expectations. Everything was clean and easy to use, and we grocery shopped and ate virtually all of our meals in the condo, enjoying the use of a well-supplied open kitchen, and the breezy lanai where we sat and ate our meals. The hotel pools were varied in both function and temperature -- what a delight to our senses (and those of our toddler)! We loved the restaurant at the hotel (Duke's) walking/running the adjacent beach walk, seeing whales, and accessing the beautiful beach within steps of our room. The location of the hotel is quite lovely. Just about 10 minutes from downtown Lahaina where we enjoyed several ice cream outings and other sundry shopping. And, we were walking distance from the grocery store! Booking the rental with Maureen was easy. She made herself available and clear, and was very accommodating when our second payment was strangely lost in the mail to her. We were given great directions from the airport, and were greeted by her knowledgeable and friendly personal concierge. We loved every minute, and only wish we would go back every year! We are already saving our $$ for another trip in a few years, and will definitely book this rental with Maureen again. We'll also recommend this rental to our friends traveling to Maui. Our only two small complaints: 1. We wish the hotel had a lap pool, or an area designated for lap swimming. We did our daily laps, but had to meander around families playing water polo. Maybe the hotel will build one?? and 2. We got a lot of attitude at Aina -- the small, upscale grocery store and coffee shop inside the hotel. Not only is it crazily expensive, but the staff is rude. Definitely skip it. Go to Safeway or Times grocery stores and stock up, or go to Duke's just outside by the water -- the staff there is lovely and the food and drinks are great.

We purchased this condo in February 2012 and are excited about renting it and sharing the Maui experience with other travellers. We are dedicated to ensuring you have a positive rental experience and hope that you will love it so much, you will continue to come back to Maui, as we have every year.
