ReviewsWrite a review
My husband and I stayed in this condo for our 10 day honeymoon and it was amazing! The resort is right on the beach and the condo was beautiful and clean. It was the perfect size for the 2 of us. Maureen was wonderful to work with! We loved staying in the condo and being able to cook our own meals. The lanai has a wonderful view and was perfect for relaxing and enjoying the weather! It was so relaxing and we would definitely go back. :)

Owner response: Thanks Alexandria and Douglas for you lovely review! We also enjoyed corresponding with you and are so glad we could play a part in making your honeymoon so amazing and we look forward to your return trip! Mahalo, Maureen and Rob
This was our second stay at Honua Kai, but the first in the new Konea tower. We thought the resort was beautiful on our first stay, but the pools and grounds in the addition have elevated it to a new level. The location of this condo afforded us a view of the ocean, as well as the gorgeous central court. We enjoyed our morning coffee on the lanai, and a glass of wine there in the evenings. Maureen was a joy to work with in renting the condo, and her attention to detail in stocking the new unit was appreciated. I used the fitness center on a regular basis, and I found it very well-stocked. We love Honua Kai, and are already planning to bring our three adult children, our daughter-in-law, and our grandson there next October. We think it is the perfect location for a family vacation. Unfortunately, we won't be able to rent from Maureen and Robert for that trip since we will need a 3-bedroom unit, but when it's just the two of us going, we'll be sure to rent this beautiful unit again. Thanks for all your personal attention, Maureen!

Owner response: It is such a pleasure renting to wonderful people like you and Michael – through our emails and phone calls I feel like we have found new friends! I am so glad that you will be able to share your next visit with your family – I agree that once you’ve experienced Honua Kai nothing else compares. Thank you for your kind words and we too look forward to your return stay at our place. “A hui kaua” Till we talk again Mahalo! Maureen and Robert
We got married on Maui last year and wanted to go back for our anniversary. I been looking at the Honua Kai resort for a few months when I saw this unit was available. From the pictures, this was one of my top 3 choices and after talking to Maureen on the phone, it came our #1 choice. The actually condo was much better than what the pictures can so. We made used of the nice lanai and had breakfast on there almost every morning, really enjoy the view. The resort itself was pretty and the pool area was very big. But when we were there most of the hot tubs were under renovation, bad for us, but good for future visitors. One thing that I was disappointed with is the use of the resort pool towels. This isn't the condo owners fault as the resort changed the rules. But I was told by the pool attendant we could've paid a small fee to use the towels. It would be nice if Maureen could find out the cost and present it as an add on option for future guests. Overall, we enjoyed our stayed at the condo, it felt like home after a long day at the beach. Highly recommend this unit for anyone looking to enjoy their stay on Maui.

Owner response: Aloha Calvert, We are so glad that you both enjoyed your return trip to Maui and your anniversary at our vacation home. We love the fact that our guests feel that our unit is even better than the pictures! Even though Honua Kai is the newest privately owned condo in Maui in the last 25 years, the resort is dedicated to ensuring that the buildings, grounds and facilities are immaculately maintained and so Honua Kai is presently doing enhancements on some of its hot tubs in the aquatic playground. During this time, hot tubs are still available in the Hokulani pool area near Dukes until work is completed in a few weeks. Thank you for your suggestion of mentioning the pool towel service offered at the resort. Honua Kai Resort and Spa has both private residences like us and also hotel service through the Front Desk. If guests book through the resort, they pay a $25 a day resort fee in addition to the resort nightly rates - which are significantly more substantial than the nightly rate when booking through private owners on VRBO. Even though owners and their guests have total access to all amenities and facilities at Honua Kai Resort & Spa, the Hotel Front Desk is a separate entity from the home owners, so if guest want pool towel service they certainly can pay the $3 per towel, per day to the front desk if they wish – so far, all of our guests have enjoyed our luxurious Egyptian cotton pool towels that we supply to them during their stay in our studio at no additional cost. We look forward to your return visits to Honua Kai! Mahalo, Robert and Maureen
The Honua Kai property is incredible! It is the perfect beach getaway with all the amenities of a large new resort but you feel like you have the privacy of a private residence. Maureen and Robert keep their unit Very clean and well maintained and all the finishes are beautiful! My husband and I agree we want to return as soon as possible! I definitely recommend spending some time sun bathing and enjoying pina coladas :) by the lazy river. We went on a chartered deep sea fishing trip and enjoyed cooking our fresh fish at 1 of the 6 (at least) different grilling stations available at the resort! With a full kitchen and a grocery store across the street you are not trapped to eat out at restaurants the entire trip. The beach is beautiful and was never over crowded. Usually the pictures of resorts are a bit deceiving - however in this case I found the opposite and my expectations were Far Exceeded - this place is incredible and was by far my best experience in visiting Hawaii!!

Owner response: Thank you, Reagan, for your fantastic review and kind words. We are glad to hear that your stay with us exceeded your expectations (that’s our goal after all!) We know what you mean by wanting to return as soon as possible – Honua Kai always leaves us longing for our next visit too. We love hearing about our guests’ experiences – and sounds like you found the perfect balance – exciting deep sea fishing adventures and also finding time to relax by the pools. Glad you didn’t catch a Hawaiian humuhumunukunukuapua'a fish – long on letters but too small on the grill :) We look forward to your return visit! Mahalo, Maureen and Robert
Great family vacation
Great family vacation
We were very impressed with our vacation at honua Kai, our 2 year old had a blast. The pools were easy to get to as was the beach. Having dukes was awesome, we could grab food on site whenever we wanted. The studio was a little tight with our daughter, but the view from the lanai made up for it. The studio had everything we needed stocked! The BBQ areas had great sunset's. the staff were all amazing. We would definitely come back. Mahalo!

Owner response: It was lovely speaking with you the other night and we were so glad to hear all about your wonderful stay at our vacation home for your anniversary and how much you enjoyed the great view from our lanai. Thanks Kari - we also were happy to hear how much you appreciated our unit being so well stocked. We really try to include the extras that make our guests feel at home. We understand that when guests need the playNpac playpen/crib set up, it unfortunately does take up a bit of space but glad that you felt that the view was worth being in a studio instead of a one bedroom since most one bedrooms are not in the inner courtyard and none are angled to get the best view. Our 600 sq. ft. studio with 100 sq. ft. lanai is spacious and larger than most one bedroom condos in Maui but you are right that there is not a bedroom to put the PlayNpac and toys in. Our experience has been that as our children have gotten older the ‘stuff’ gets smaller but just a lot more expensive (iPods, iPhones….) so it gets a bit easier to travel as time goes on! We look forward to your return visit. Mahalo Maureen and Rob
Loved it.. cant wait to go back!
Loved it.. cant wait to go back!
We loved the condo, the beach, the pools, the food! We had a girls trip with a friend, her mom and daughter.. and we enjoyed every minute of it. I would love to book this condo/hotel again for Thanksgiving if there are lots of rooms available as I want to bring my husband and other daughter, granddaughter and in laws. Thanks again so much Maureen!

Owner response: Hi Lauri, We are so happy that your first experience with us, at Honua Kai Resort and Spa, was so perfect and look forward to hosting a future stay! Thanksgiving is starting to book up quickly so I hope you are able to coordinate an additional condo to make it work to bring back your husband, daughters, granddaughter and in laws – guest who want to return are the best complement! If we can help you in any way please let us know. Mahalo! Maureen and Rob
We were a little nervous to be the first people to stay here because there were no other reviews but we were very happy when we arrived. We were greeted by Michelle who met us at the door and went over the condo and all the amenities. The condo itself has everything you need and was perfect. We enjoyed the pool, hot tub and restaurant everyday. Since the condo was not directly next to a hotel the beach wasnt as busy as the other beaches we came across in Maui. We had an amazing time here and would love to go back.

Owner response: Thanks first for being such lovely first guests in our new condo and also for having faith in us even without reviews – and now thanks to you we have our first review! We are so glad that you enjoyed our vacation home and the amenities of the resort – I agree it is a really magical place and we also are so appreciative that Honua Kai Resort and Spa has the perfect mix of a quiet secluded beach yet is still within walking distance along the boardwalk to the busier hotels. Honua Kai is still a bit of well-kept secret. We also look forward to you visiting us again and thank you Frank, I got your email saying that you have recommended us to your colleagues – now we really have reviews! Mahalo! Rob and Maureen
A MAGICAL PLACEGuest comment entered by owner
A MAGICAL PLACE
We are nearing the end of our fabulous three week stay at Honua Kai Resort and Spa… somehow time seems different here in Maui…. there are many moments when time seems suspended, when one is lost in moments of pure joy, love and laughter and yet it seems like in a blink time has flown by, and only captured in a memory. The other morning I decided to ‘make the most’ of my morning walk and leave my camera in the condo so as to get a workout before starting my day. Hawaii has a way of teaching many lessons if one is open. Rob decided to join me this morning and humoured my need to walk briskly but by the time we reached Black Rock he had convinced me to leave the walking path and kick off our shoes and meander along the shoreline – the water was just cool enough to be refreshing as it gently caressed our ankles and invited us to enjoy the moment. From years of boating, Rob has picked up the habit of always scanning the ocean and he suddenly spotted dolphins off shore. They were only about a block out and travelled along the edge with us, all the while jumping and spinning while we made our way along the beach. Like a pied piper, the spinning dolphins collected many followers along the way back till we finally reached Honua Kai and like the finale at the fireworks they exploded in unison jumping and spinning before heading off to Lanai. We headed off also but to Ãina for our morning latte, still spouting about our experience, when an outrigger guide shared that he saw the spinning dolphins from the water and from his viewpoint there were around 300 of them! Hawaii is teaching me to slow down, smell the plumeria flowers, take time to stroll along the water’s edge, and be open to the gifts that Maui offers. We just purchased our brand new condo from the developer and really enjoyed spending quality time in our vacation home and can't wait to come back! We loved starting each day on our lanai looking out to the ocean nibbling on local pineapple, mango and apple bananas topped with yogurt and granola. We enjoyed the sun filled days at the pools or Kaanapali Beach and explored close-by sights like the blowhole and canopy topped jungle valleys within a half an hour drive! We are really excited about sharing our vacation home in paradise with wonderful guests and hearing about their wonderful experiences. Honua Kai Resort and Spa is a really magical place!

About the owner: We live in Canada and are so happy to now have a place at Honua Kai. Robert owns his own construction company and Maureen just completed her Masters and is a counsellor. Growing up Rob’s family have had vacation homes in Maui for over 30 years and the family moved to Maui for a year when Robert was 13 years old and that year he and his sister went to school at King Kamehameha. Robert returned with Maureen for their honeymoon and later stayed at Honua Kai twice with their children before purchasing unit 315 Konea from the developer this summer (2013). Honua Kai really feels like coming home. Maureen and Robert
Why the Owner Chose Honua Kai:
Honua Kai Resort and Spa on Kaanapali Beach, Maui, has everything imaginable. Maui is such an amazing place with tropical great weather all year round (voted “Best Island” Conde Nast Traveler for 19 years) and Kaanapali Beach not only has less rain than other areas of Maui, but also a beautiful five mile stretch of soft sand and crystal clear, gentle water.
The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
Walking into Honua Kai Resort and Spa we feel the relaxed, aloha spirit of Hawaii. It’s a magical experience… we ease into the day with lattes or ice cream from A'ina market right in the resort and then either play at the pools, relax in the sun, go off on an adventure or find great shops to browse. We often end the day with a great home cooked feast using ingredients from Costco and local markets and end the day in a hot tub or with an evening stroll along the ocean boardwalk. We are never without our camera to capture wonderful memories to sustain us until our return to Maui.
