Honokowai condo description

We have a friend with a condo like ours with 2015 openings as follows. 1/29 to 2/7, 2/14 to 3/7, 4/11 to 4/18 and 5/16 to 6/13. They do not advertise. We are very popular so to save your review time I want to mention that our next 1 week opening or longer is June 20 of 2015. See our short stay specials at the end of this ad description. When price comparing with other condos please note that we do not charge any cleaning fees for stays 7 nights or longer and there are no resort or parking fees.

The PICTURES, VIDEO, and 200+ RENTER COMMENTS tell it all. Our renter comments are like a GUIDE BOOK specific to West Maui. Click on the 'VIDEO tab' on top of the picture at the start of this ad.

At Sunset Central YOU ARE SO CLOSE YOU CAN FEEL THE OCEAN! As soon as you walk into SUNSET CENTRAL you will take a deep breath and start to smile. You are seeing the incredible ocean view and hearing the waves. SUNSET CENTRAL IS as good as it looked online and as nice as you hoped for. Why?

The old Cliché, 'VIEW, VIEW, VIEW'. We have of one of the BEST OCEAN VIEWS in Maui. You don't think about it but 'NOT' having a pool, or condo complex lounge chair seating, or tall lanai rails, or anything in your ocean view makes it that much better. The view from inside the condo is great and the view from our lanai is almost 180 degrees with no obstructions. We have the perfect combination for a ROMANTIC stay. A quiet and quaint location off the main road, stunning views, and soothing Pacific Ocean surround sound. There is NO EQUAL to being GROUND FLOOR directly on the ocean. No walking around your building(s), or down stairs and through hallways, or across streets to get to the ocean. Carry your chair 25 feet to the ocean edge and watch a 180 degree sunset. Does the drink you brought with you need a refill or you forgot your camera? No problem. Ten steps back to get it. Don't want to move 25 feet to the ocean edge? Just watch a sunset, sunrise, or simply the ocean from your very large lanai. The lanai has a ceiling fan for added comfort. Do you want your condo to be on a beach for sunbathing, snorkeling or just plain walking on it? We have a new upgraded stair access to our little semi-private “Rainbow Beach”. All this while still being minutes from all of the great things to do on the famous West Maui coast.

SUNSET CENTRAL faces directly West providing WONDERFUL SUNSET shows. During the year the sunsets move back and forth from the islands of Lanai and Molokai. What a sight. Words can’t describe what it is like watching sunsets from your condo right on the beautiful West Maui OCEAN EDGE and with the sounds of the ocean. It is fun even when the sunsets are not spectacular.

DECOR: Our goal was to make the family/dining room feel as large as possible even though it is larger than usual for Maui. Our tv/stereo and our dining table set are on one wall. The sofa sleeper and recliner are set up on the other wall. The result is a large open area in the middle of the room. We think we accomplished our goal. We also added mirrors on one wall. These make the room feel larger as well and provides an ocean view from almost any direction you are facing.

SERVICE: We only have one condo to manage so we give 100% of our attention to you and no amount of attention is too much. Even though we can easily accommodate 4 people in our large condo we only allow a max. of 3. This is to help make sure our condo is in good shape when you arrive. We have a large separate bedroom with a CA king size bed. A separate bedroom is nice if you do not want your King bed in the family room like a hotel. We have a queen size sofa sleeper for the 3rd person.

GUESTS: We have had the best guests and their emails and guest book comments to us are fantastic. Most have taken the time to list their favorite things to do and not so favorite. Our Guest Comments are like a location specific guide book of things to do. Be sure to read them. There are 247 that we entered. You have to scroll all they to end this ad right above the 24 photos. The easiest way to see all comments and the time of year of the visits is to click on the link to the 'OWNERS WEBSITE' We have a great website. Once there click on Guest Comments.

IMPROVEMENTS: Bathroom remodel in completed 08/14 changing from tub to walk in shower etc. New TV in the bedroom. Changed phone service that allows calls out to anywhere in the U.S. We added a FAN on our LANAI. This adds hours per day and night that are comfortable on the lanai. We also vented our washer/dryer unit to outside. Major feature! Less heating of your condo. And when you have a washer and dryer you are not spending part of your vacation watching your clothes in a community facility. New dishwasher and refrigerator.

Stay connected with our HI SPEED CABLE INTERNET, wireless, with firewall protection.

To view other nice videos click on the 'OWNERS WEBSITE' link above the photos towards the end of this ad. Some of our website videos are “Breakfast on our Lanai”, “View from our Beach Stairs”, a view from our semi-private “Rainbow Beach”, and 'Sunset Stages'.

SUNSET CENTRAL is conveniently located between KAANAPALI and KAHANA, just 5 miles North of LAHAINA, and on the renown West Side of Maui.

              We are located 5 miles North of Lahaina in a quiet compex, close to everthing. We have over 200 guest comments that tell of events each of the guests enjoyed while staying at our condo. It is like a travel guide specific to our location here in West Maui

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2005

              About the owner: We (Ray and Connie) are from California. We love the outdoors and we especially love water and the sound of water on rivers, waterfalls, the ocean and even when it rains. When we like something we tend to keep coming back. Having a condo in West Maui is an example. Not a bad routine. We know you will love Maui too.

              Why the Owner Chose Honokowai:
              Connie and I (Ray) visited Maui from California for the first time about 15 years ago. Every time we came back we spent some time looking at condos. The question was, Where to buy? South Maui (Kihei), or West Maui? The first requirement was to be right on the ocean. We preferred the famous West Maui side but there were very few available in our range due to its popularity. Finally after several trips to Maui we came upon one in West Maui that was so close to the ocean and romantic that it would not let us go. The rest is history. Now we have a nice home away from home that we get to visit a few times a year. Sharing our condo and hearing how much our guests like it is a benefit we did not know would come with our purchase. See for yourself by reading our 200 plus renters comments.

              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
              Our condo is unique due to having one of the best views in Maui, our proximity to the ocean, our beach access, the small size of complex, being off the main road, and the quaint, quiet feel you get when staying there. The view right out to the ocean is almost 180 degrees with no pool or complex lounge seating in the way is unmatched. Although we have a large condo, over 600 square feet and could easily sleep 4 people, we only allow 3 as a maximum. The result is less wear and tear on the condo and greater assurance that it will be in great shape when you arrive.
