KONEA 142 - BOTTOM FLOOR VERY CLOSE TO EVERYTHING!
Honua Kai was recently rated the #3 resort in the entire state of Hawaii by readers of Conde Nast Traveler!
Aloha & Welcome to Konea 142 at Honua Kai Luxury Resort & Spa.
Located on the BOTTOM FLOOR of the quiet NORTH side of the resort - far away from the construction on the Westin property SOUTH of Honua Kai that resumed in 2015. You can't be farther from the construction and you won't hear a thing! There isn't a better location in the resort!
Please click on the video icon in the pictures for a VIDEO TOUR of my condominium home and the resort.
This private oasis is uniquely located in the quiet North corner of this luxury resort. Enjoy the wide open spacious feeling with 11 foot vaulted ceilings (only on the ground floor) and 1,230 square feet of interior living space, with 2 master suites and an open living and dining room and kitchen floor plan. Over sized custom glass doors open the entire wall to an large lanai with outdoor dining and lounging furniture, bordering your own private lawn area – you get 420 square feet of lanai and garden! From there it is a short walk of one minute down a beautifully manicured grassy walkway to the 3 pools, beach, gas BBQ area with Viking grills, and Duke's Restaurant and Bar. I have just installed a KEYED lock on the lanai door for secure access.
Surrounded by beautiful tropical vegetation, the back yard is the most private at Honua Kai due to the exceptional landscaping, and our unique location on the Northern border of the resort with a fence hidden by a hedge providing ultimate privacy. Quickest access to the beach, pools, Viking gas BBQs, and Duke's Restaurant. You may also choose to walk out the front door of our condo which is situated right by the door to the interior courtyard. Either way, you reach all of the stunning outdoor attractions of this gorgeous resort faster than almost everyone else staying here - they have to take the elevator! You'll only use the elevator to get to the underground parking garage. Our ground floor location is so convenient for hanging out at the pools or beach to pop into your own condominium to use the bathroom, freshen your drink, have a snack, or grab some of the provided snorkeling equipment, boogie boards, or beach chairs! Right around the corner in the same building is the gym for an invigorating workout with weights, cardio, or yoga classes and the spa offers treatments for indulgent pampering. You know you deserve it!
Honua Kai is the newest and most exciting resort in West Maui, with the luxury Konea tower completed in 2011. It offers all the conveniences of home and all the amenities of a luxury hotel resort and spa. It is beautifully landscaped with lush tropical gardens and swaying palms. Take time to enjoy all the features of the 3 naturally landscaped pools (one of 3 pools is closed for repairs but it is the farthest one from our condo), 4 hot tubs, numerous Viking BBQs, restaurant and coffee shop / deli, 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 past Black Rock with its world famous cliff jumping and snorkeling down to Whaler’s village with all its wonderful shops and restaurants. My favorites are the Tommy Bahama store and the Hula Grill Restaurant.
Come experience my Aloha and pride of ownership! You don't have to deal with (or pay for) a management company that means you get a better experience and more value for your money. I go out of my way to earn your loyalty. I will always promptly respond to your inquiries, I always maintain my 2 properties and keep up to date calendars, and I will do whatever I can to enhance the entire experience. :) It is my hope and goal that this will become your Maui home for many years to come!

The Honua Kai Resort and Spa features an enormous 'aquatic playground' - an elaborate pool, multiple hot tub, pond and stream network with small secluded areas and protected paths that lead to the beach. Three separate pool areas, each offering a distinctly different experience. Hokulani's infinity-edged Formal Pool features terraced lounge seating facing the pool and ocean, and a large hot tub on each side. In front of Konea, the River Pool is a haven of peace and privacy, with two quiet zones and aqua lounges where you can put your chair in the water and relax. The middle pool is the family or 'Ohana' Pool, a very active, playful area with a water slide, waterfall, and a special area with a sandy beach for small children and parents. Several BBQ areas with Viking gas grills and 4 hot tubs are located thoughout the grounds.
2) Our unit is completely outfitted with beach towels, kids hooded beach towels, 4 Tommy Bahama beach chairs and beach umbrella, 4 quality Boogie Boards, 4 sets of snorkeling equipment (mask, snorkel, and fins), Sony combination music MP3 player dock/alarm clock, portable Bluetooth rechargeable stereo speaker system, cooler, barbecue utensils, in room washer and dryer (Bosch), in room safe, 3 DVD players (we have DVDs for all ages), 3 Flat screen TVs, pack n' play portable crib, Fisher Price portable high chair / booster seat, etc.
3) Other amenities include: onsite ocean view dining and poolside food and drink service (Duke's Restaurant and Bar), onsite market (Aina Gourmet Market), onsite spa (on our floor), onsite gym (also on our floor), sandy beach, snorkeling, and whale watching.
4) If you can tear yourself away from the Honua Kai Resort itself (big 'IF'), Whaler's Village is a very nice shopping and dining experience about two miles South, and it is a good place to park to enjoy snorkeling and cliff jumping at Black Rock. There is validated parking and limited public beach access free parking, or it's a nice stroll on the ocean front boardwalk.
5) Lahaina's Front Street is 7 miles away and offers tons of shops, art galleries, restaurants, and is the site of Ululani's Hawaiian Shave Ice, our second favorite local dessert after the Hula Pie at Duke's (onsite). We also love the Pacific O and Fleetwood's restaurants in Lahaina.
6) Another favorite Maui activity is downhill biking on the Haleakala dormant volcano. There are several companies that offer this and they are based in Paia. When in Paia, enjoy some delicious pizza at Paia Flatbread Company, or have a bucket list meal at Mama's Fish House nearby (has been rated the #1 restaurant in the world). Paia is also the windsurfing and kiteboarding capital of the world and close by is Jaws (Pe'ahi), the world's most famous big wave tow-in surfing spot. If you are on Maui when the surf gets huge at Jaws, you can watch surfers challenge 50 foot waves which helicopters film them. If you have a telephoto camera you may be showing your friends pictures of waves literally 8 times taller than the surfers riding them. These are just a few of Maui's offerings. Our unit has a Maui travel guide, a Maui restaurant guide, and a Maui hiking guide. I'll also offer recommendations for dining and activities when you book your stay.
Year Purchased: 2014
About the owner: My name is Trevor Alt and I am a 46 year old father of a 13 year old daughter, Rachel. In April of 2013, on Kaanapali Beach by Honua Kai I married the woman of my dreams and enlarged my family to 6 with her and my 3 stepsons that are 11, 13, and 14. I practiced law in California for 10 years and still hold an inactive membership to the California Bar, but I have been a career firefighter for the Reno Fire Department for 11 years. I am a fitness and health nut and I exercise religiously. The better to drag you out of a burning building with, my dear. I enjoy water and snow skiing, boating, wakeboarding, golf, mountain biking, and have completed an xterrra sprint triatholon and a half marathon. When I was an attorney, I saved as much money as I could and invested carefully with the goal of living in Hawaii someday. Purchasing this property at incredible Honua Kai is a step toward achieving that goal. When I move to Maui full time I hope to learn to kite board and also hope to revive my golf game. In the meantime, I will continue my success as a vacation rental owner and manager by exceeding my guests' expectations and delivering a superb luxury vacation experience every time! See my guest reviews here and for my Lake Tahoe vacation home (VRBO #367619).
Why the Owner Chose Honua Kai:
I've been visiting West Maui all my life and the Honua Kai Resort & Spa is the most luxurious place to live and vacation that has ever been built here. My family became hooked on the convenience of the ground floor when we traveled here to get married in April 2013 so we had to jump on this ideal property when it became available. We love Duke's Restaurant and the aquatic playground - our kids never want to leave the resort. I love the grand luxury of the Honua Kai Resort and Spa - I feel like a KING when I come here! I chose this ground floor unit on the North side of the Honua Kai resort because we don't look across a courtyard into someone else's unit (like the inner courtyard units) and we aren't next to an unfinished resort (like the South facing units in the Hokulani tower). It's quiet and peaceful here. I believe that my combination of ground floor convenience, HUGE living area, and location in the resort offers the best experience and the best value available at Honua Kai, which is the best resort in West Maui. Whether I'm clipping coupons or treating my wife to an exquisite dinner, I always try to get a lot for my money and I know my guests want value too - here it is my friends! Maui voted best place to visit in U.S.: June 25, 2014 Maui was named the best place to visit in the U.S. according to U.S. News & World Report rankings released Tuesday June 24, 2014. 'Maui is not nearly as large as the Big Island, nor is it as small as Lanai, as bustling as Oahu or as quiet as Kauai,' the news release said. 'For many Hawaii vacationers, Maui is just right - offering a taste of just about everything the Aloha State has to offer, from impressive wildlife to intriguing history and culture. While on a visit here, you can shimmy alongside professional hula dancers, golf along coastal fairways, snorkel alongside five different types of sea turtles or simply lounge along some of Hawaii's most notable beaches.' Honolulu was ranked eighth in the report.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
My favorite aspect of our second home at Honua Kai is the amazing ground floor convenience! Everything is so close and easy to get to from our condo. From the moment I first walked into Honua Kai I was floored by the uncompromising commitment to quality and attention to detail. We love the huge aquatic playground and the beach and ocean, and I could eat all my meals at Duke's! Ono grinds! My favorite feature of the condominium itself is the custom glass Nana doors that allow you to open the entire wall and seamlessly integrate the tropical outdoors into our vacation home. I also love the vaulted ceilings that you only get on the ground floor. A new beach-side boardwalk accommodates walkers and joggers for miles of spectacular ocean views and the nearby Islands of Lanai and Molokai. It's a mile and a half walk South from Honua Kai to Black Rock, under two miles from Honua Kai to Whaler's Village. At Honua Kai you are on the world famous Ka'anapali Beach but well away from the crowds that you'll sometimes find in the more densely populated area South of Black Rock. Our unit is great for 2 couples since each gets a bedroom suite with its own bathroom with large living area between. Our unit is also wonderful for families or other groups up to 6 (such as my family) since the second bedroom can be made up with 2 twins and the sleeper couch is queen size. I've also made the unit very 'kid friendly'. I've got a pack n' play, a Fisher Price portable high chair / booster seat, kid's hooded beach towels with a fish or crab theme, sippy cups, and 3 DVD/Blueray players I have about 35 kids DVD's and about 30 'regular' movies for grownups to enjoy on one of the three DVD players. I'm excited about my recent purchase of 2 Xterra inflatable Stand Up Paddleboards, which are available to my guests for their entire stay for $100 for 1, $150 for both. Honua Kai was recently rated the #3 resort in the entire state of Hawaii by Conde Nast traveler!
