  • Great Rental for family

    "We just got back from our trip to Maui and stayed at Honua Kai. I'm so glad i booked with Lauren(the owner)through VRBO. We corresponded via Email and she always emailed me back right away. Her condo is exactly as pictured. Clean, well equipped and the balcony facing the mountain gave us plenty of privacy. The resort is beautiful. Lauren gave us easy directions with maps for the property as well as great restaurant suggestions. We will definitely rent from her again for our next Maui trip. Aloha"

  • Over the Rainbow

    "Our family of four spent a week at the resort after coming from busy Waikiki. What a difference! The resort was paradise! The condo was perfectly appointed from the bathroom to the beach toys. We decided on this condo with a view of the mountains and a slight view of the ocean and we were plesently surprised by the daily rainbows! The lani was a nice size and we enjoyed dinner several nights out there. It was very quite on this size away from the pool so it was a bonus! The pools and ground were also perfectly kept and we always found plently of places to sit at the beautiful pools. The winds were pretty strong during our stay so we did not spend as much time at the beach swiming as we would of liked. With our two teenagers we did take advantage of all the activities around us: Snorkleing, zip line, surf lessons and shopping. Every one was more exciting than the last. I would also recomment going to Costco or going to Safeway for food. The store across the street is definitly $$$. Overall the staff was very helpful and friendly. Thanks for an amazing week!"

  • A wonderful and memorable vacation

    "My husband, son (age seven) and I recently stayed at Shafeeq's and April's lovely condo at the Honua Kia in Kaanapaii, West Maui. Let me just say, I cried when I left! We had such a wonderful and relaxing time there and were so comfortable in their condo and Shafeeq was so accomodating. From the moment I booked our stay, he called me to introduce himself and went through all that we needed to do once we arrived in Maui. He also called during our stay to check in and see how everything was going. He couldn't have been nicer! The condo itself is so comfortable and was stocked with everything we needed and then some--beach towels, beach chairs, boogie boards (which my son just loved!), spices for cooking, shelves in the laundry room to stock groceries, soap, shampoo, conditioner, body lotion and much more. The view from the condo is also amazing and so serene--with views of the ocean from one direction and the West Maui mountains from another. I wished we could have stayed longer. We look forward to returning to this little paradise sometime soon."

Honua Kai Travel Tips

Staying in West Maui with Honua Kai Vacation Rentals

West Maui is a destination for the people who want to go to the tropics to get away from everything, but while holding onto the bits of civilization that make life enjoyable, like high rises, world-class restaurants, first-class golfing, and unforgettable scuba diving in crystal clear waters. West Maui is also home to the world's best sunsets, which can be viewed from the decks of Honua Kai vacation rentals. Honua Kai is condominium building built just north of Kaanapali beach. It's a bit outside of the hubbub of the tourist areas, and it is home to some of the best views of the western Pacific on Maui.

Visiting Maui by Staying in Someone's High Rise Condominium

With a vacation rental, a vacationer rents someone's property. So instead of going to a hotel, a renter essentially rents a home through a private agreement with its owner. The home can be a shack in the mountains, or a luxury condo in Maui, which is what Honua Kai is. Honua Kai beach rentals allow a vacationer to experience Western Maui and Kaanapali resorts, without paying the fees of a hotel. And a vacation rental by owner allows you to utilize a kitchen instead of eating out.

Honua Kai Beach Rentals and You

A beach rental through a condominium like Honua Kai allows a vacationer to stay in a cozy home, while being in the center of a beautiful and exotic locale. You can fit more people into a vacation rental than you can a hotel; since it's a home, there are sometimes extra rooms, or pull-out sofas. The rates for a vacation rental are typically much lower, especially when you add the extra bed space and the savings of eating in. And there's no lack of activities in Western Maui, though you may just prefer to relax and take in the sunset.
