"Agree with everything positive that has already been posted...unit is lovely and well-stocked, resort is wonderful, Elaine was delightful & honest, Dukes is a great place to have dinner, etc. A few minor complaints/notes for parents: we found the beach itself at this resort to be just OK...when you go out to a depth of 3~4 ft, in most places, there's a lot of rocky patches. Not sharp rocks, but not the best for swimming, so we had better luck driving to other beaches vs. staying right at the HK resort. Water slide seemed to close relatively early in the evening, say 7PM (not sure exactly when it closed), so be sure to get down there earlier in the day if your kids are set on using the water slide. But those, as I said, are minor complaints. All in all, we loved our stay at this property, can recommend it without reservation, and look forward to staying in this unit again in the not-so-distant future!"

"We had the pleasure of staying in Konea 539 this past week and absolutely loved our time there! The unit was beautiful, very clean, in great shape and very well stocked. The pictures attached to the listing really give a true representation of what you can expect when you walk in.
The rental company was easy to work with and left keys for us to pick up on our way into town. There were a few things that could have made our stay a bit easier which is why we didn't give a full five stars but is also why we're writing this review so the next renter has a heads up. When you arrive at the tower we had no idea what to do: drive to the front of the second tower (Konea) and go inside to pay for your parking for the duration of your stay. They will then give you a parking pass so you can get into the garage. Upon entry take a sharp right, park and head up that elevator as it is the closest to your room.
The other things that we had asked about were if there were chairs or any beach items in the unit. We were told they didn't know but there may be something. Well after renting a crib, beach chairs and an umbrella (which the rental company did a great job helping us get into the unit before we got there so big bonus), we did arrive to find a pack and play, two beach chairs, umbrella, beach toys and small cooler in the units closet. We understand that these things may come and go as renters do but maybe wait to see whats there as there was some stuff.
The view is amazing, the fold out bed was a normal not so comfy thin thing but I've slept on way worse. The kitchen had a great amount of pots, pans, cups and a few spices. Watch out for the birds though! With the two fold away walls which made for amazing ocean breezes we also got hit on both sides by sparrows attempting to access any food scraps they could find. They're bold (made it in the bedroom even) so don't leave for the pool with the doors open!
Overall we had an absolutely amazing trip. This location on the property was fantastic, location to access the island was great and the grounds of Honua Kai are breathtaking. We were incredibly comfortable here with four adults and two children (lots of families and new friends to meet in the pool), and would definitely come back and stay in this condo again! We thank the owners for sharing it with us and look forward to our next visit to Honua Kai!! Mahalo!"

"Third time stay at Honua Kai in the past 4 years so my review allows for a fair comparison between units. We found the condo to be quiet aside for those wonderful trade winds. Honua Kai grounds and amenities never disappoint and we certainly enjoyed our days around the pools and on the beach just out front.
Maui Resort Realty were awesome to work with. They even offered us to stay for the day of departure as long as we wanted so as not to be displaced between normal check out time and our late flight.
This particular suite offers a lovely view of the ocean. As for the condo, the carpets were replaced the fall of 2014 so they are in new condition. Overall I found the unit to be clean and inviting. I did however have one disappointment and it was the master bedroom mattress and linens. Since we did not have maid service during our visit I did wash the bedding mid stay. I was not impressed with the mattress and bedding. Their poor condition is not apparent until you remove everything to wash them. From the stained "coverlet" (certainly not a mattress protector) to the duvet (I think that's what it is supposed to be as there was nothing inside of it). With some new bedding I would give this unit a 5 star. A "Good" rating overall with an "Excellent" rating for Maui Resort Realty!"

Beautiful grounds, great location, well maintained
"We had a fantastic time at the Honua Kai condo for our honeymoon in Maui. We loved that Dukes was on the resort and that we we were given key card access to the parking garage. Overall I gave the condo 4 stars as there were only two items that we could have seen for improvement. One, I had wished the owner would have let us know that the mail large pool was closed off for "major structural repairs". This forced us to the family area of the resort that we found crowded and littered with kids, and the second item was that the lobby was nearly inaccessibly for part of the stay as they were doing flooring repairs. Otherwise the condo its self was in great condition, ground floor unit with an awesome lanai that opened up right onto the grounds. We would stay here again."
