Property description

Honua Kai Luxury Resort - Ground Floor 2 Bedroom Condo w/ Private Lawn

This special retreat is uniquely located in a quiet corner of the resort. Enjoy the spacious feeling of 11 ft ceilings and 1,100 sq ft of living space, covering 2 master suites and an open living room and kitchen floor-plan. Over sized sliding doors open to an ample lanai, bordering your own private lawn area – totaling 740 sq ft. From there it is a short stroll down a beautifully manicured walkway to the beach, passing pools and BBQ area on the way. You can enjoy the extra space by pulling your lawn furniture out far enough to enjoy the glimmering ocean. Surrounded by beautiful Hawaiian vegetation, the back yard is the most private at Honua Kai due to the exceptional landscaping. You will feel like you are in your own tropical garden, because you are!

Honua Kai is one of the newest and most exciting resort in West Maui, completed in March 2010. It is beautifully landscaped with lush tropical gardens and swaying palms. Take time to enjoy all the features of the 3 naturally landscaped pools, hot tubs, BBQs, Maui’s only Duke’s Beachside Restaurant and the world famous Ka’anapali North Beach just steps beyond. There is a reef right in front of the resort, great for snorkeling with the turtles; and you can enjoy walks down the boardwalk all the way down to Whaler’s village with all its shops and restaurants.

From Carlos Rivera, Project Manager of Starwood Design & Development Team:
~Sitework and excavation began on Tuesday 2/17/15
~The earthwork is currently ongoing and the dirt pile closest to Honua Kai will be moved to the south end of the site in the next couple of weeks. Earthwork and grading activities will continue to mid-April.
~Tower cranes will be erected at the beginning of May 2015.
~The County noise ordinance allows for construction activities to be performed 7:00AM-6:00PM Monday through Friday and 9:00AM - 6:00PM Saturday (Except Sundays And Holidays) however current construction activities will be performed 8:00am-6:00pm Monday - Friday, (with some Saturdays as needed) to minimize impact on neighbors.

- Updates as of 2/17/15
We learned that they will work from 8:00am to 4:30 pm and aren't working on Sundays*. Also to control dust as they move dirt, they will keep water on the dirt.
*see 2/27/15 update for the updated working hours

- Update as of 2/13/15 (from our Honua Kai General Manager, Rick Tanner.)
'We want to update you on recent activity on Lot 3: the property to our south (behind the big green wall that runs the length of the entrance to our property and beside the Hokulani tower). This property belongs to Starwood, the builder and operator of Ka’anapali Ocean Resorts (KOR).

Starwood has acquired all necessary permits from the County to begin construction of a new Starwood timeshare project (under the Westin brand), with construction starting in 2015.

It is our understanding that:
(I) The project will consist of 8 buildings, each consisting of 6 floors and a total 390 units as well as 2 parking garages providing approximately 800 stalls. We have more to learn.
(II) Starwood has signed a general contractors contract with Hawaii Dredging and ground preparation will begin in earnest the week of February 16th.
(III) Ground preparation will consist of moving the large mound of soil form the north end of Lot 3 to the south end.
(VI) A traditional Hawaiian blessing for the project will be held on February 17th. This will not be open to the public.

We will continue to provide updates as we acquire new information. We expect to provide an additional update by the 1st week of March.'

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: We are a young family living in the SF bay area. My husband grew up in Europe and I grew up in Asia and we decided to raise our family in the U.S.

Why the Owner Chose Honua Kai:
We have lived and have traveled all over the world for many years. There is nothing quite like the Hawaiian islands, and within Hawaii we just fell in love with Maui as it has the perfect blend of natural beauty, excitement, and amenities. We stayed at the Honua Kai for just one week in early 2013 and loved it so much that we decided to buy this unit right then and there. The resort is by far the newest beachfront property on Kanaapali and among the newest in all of Maui, ranked #2 in West Maui and #4 in all of Maui by TripAdvisor. We believe it is the perfect luxurious and yet laid back family vacation spot in paradise, offering fully equipped spacious condos with full four-star resort amenities.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
- Very private setting within resort - Ground floor unit with spacious lanai and own private lawn - Special tropical landscaping around lawn provide added privacy - Short stroll down to the beach - Similarly easy access to pools, Koi pond for morning fish feedings (great fun for kids), BBQ areas, etc
