After renovating Honu Place VRBO Listing #402988, 2 years ago, we were inspired to renovated the unit right next door, Annie's place, #208. this unit has even a better view!Take a nap or read a book looking out on lawn, woods, and ocean as the living room double patio doors open onto the lanai and lawn.
The condo is appointed comfortably and tastefully with a porcelain floor throughout, granite counters in both the kitchen and bathrooms, and local artists work adorn the walls. Beautiful Maple Cabinets and solid pine interior doors were used to keep the unit 'off-gas' free, along with other green products to furnish and renovate our condo. New sound proof windows, and pine extra thick 4 panel interiors doors provide a quiet environment.
KITCHEN: Enjoy cooking on a brand new stainless steel electric range, preparing your vegetables on granite counters with plenty of light, and clean up is so easy with the ultra quiet Bosch dishwasher. You will find just about everything you need whether you want to cook or just go out, as the area is filled with many wonderful restaurants.
LIVING ROOM/ DINING ROOM: Play some cards on the Hawaiiana Ratan Dining Set, browse through our DVD library and select a Blu-Ray, look through the many HDTV cable stations, or watch Free Prime Time On Demand to enjoy on the 50' LED Samsung TV. And any of these activities will feel like you are outdoors sitting next to our new patio sliding doors among the tropical birds and plants..
MASTER BED ROOM: You will find an Eastern King Mattress for your comfort. Before falling asleep, watch the 32' LED Samsung TV with HDTV cable, or you can access your Netflix or Hulu accounts, along with access to Youtube, Pandora, and more.
GUEST BEDROOM You will find an antique Maple bed set from 1953. This is originally owned by Annie's family, and kindly left for our use. There is a Queen mattress to comfortably stretch out.
FULL BATH ROOM: When you are not in a hurry to make that dinner reservation after beaching it, there is a comfortable new bathtub for your relaxation. Gorgeous Blue Granite Counters adorn your surroundings.
AREA: Keawakapu Beach is very much OLD HAWAII. Rent a kayak or go swimming across the street, or walk to the south along the beach for 3 miles passing a mile of private multi-million dollar homes, then stroll on a path at the ocean cliffs and beaches passing some of the nicest hotels on the island. Walk north to find Kamaole 1 Beach and fronting our building is a nature preserve and the Kihei Boat Launch where boats leave for snorkle tours and more. There are many shops and restaurants in Wailea and Kihei which are literally a few minutes in each direction. This area is also warmer and less rainy than other locations on Maui, and less windy than North Kihei.
There is one flight of stairs to the front door although the lanai is on the ground floor at the lawn.
This is a NO SMOKING building, sorry we do not have an elevator or a pool.

Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: Rick is in the computer industry, and Susie retired from Health Care Research when our 3rd child was born in 1991. Rick enjoys windsurfing, and both of us love walking the beaches, snorkeling, and the nature of Maui. With Rick still working, we can't spend all of our time on Maui, so we will be renting out HonuPlace approximately 6-8 months a year. We have now bought Annie's Place right next door so we have room for our kids and grandkids. Annie's place (this add) will be rented about 11 months a year.After a total demolition and renovation, we want to share with you Annie's place and of course, we still have Honu Place for rent as well VRBO Listing #402988
Why the Owner Chose Keawakapu: We have been traveling to the Hawaiian Islands for 27 years visiting Rick's parents living on Oahu. During this time we always visited the Keawakapu area of Maui, and it became our favorite place in the world. Finally, May 2011, we closed escrow, purchasing our Maui dream home, Honu Place! August 2011 we demolished the entire apartment to its bones. Susie has managed and coordinated the entire project creating a space that we think you will love as much as we do.
Now Fall 2013, we are demolishing Annie's Place as well, fully renovating it as well, and it is available for rent in February 2014. Please check out our reviews regarding Honuplace: VRBO Listing #402988
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: This is a very unusual condo building for this area. It was built in the 70's to house the contractors building a very large resort up the hill. Only 16 units, twelve 2 bedroom, 2 one bedroom, and 2 studio apartments make up this complex. Because of its small intimate size and woodsy surroundings, it feels very private and secluded.It has a large lawn, woods, and a bamboo grove. The views are lovely with palms, mango, and a sweet ocean view above the trees creates old Hawaiiana. It is quiet, off the beaten path yet just minutes to many stores and restaurants, and the best part, just a 4 minute walk to the nicest beaches on Maui. Rick and I enjoy a walk daily either south, for a 6 mile round trip walk on the beaches, or to the north along the nature preserve and Kamaole Beach Park 1. Often we grab a cup of coffee at the lovely 5 Palms or Sorentos on the beach, or walk to the Four Seasons for one of their fresh fruit smoothies. Other days, we take our snorkels with us for a morning snorkel at Keawakapu or walk to Ulua for variety. Snorkeling is wonderful at these or many other beaches. When the waves are good, a little boogie boarding (supplied in unit) is great fun too. Besides some people who kite and windsurf in Kihei, it is only a 20 minute drive to Kanaha Bay, world renown windsurfing and kiting spot with nearby rentals. In the evening we enjoy the many bars and restaurants with good live music just a couple of minutes away.
