About Louis Trinh

Hi, thank you for taking the time to read our webpage. My wife and I, along with our four kids, live in the suburbs of Atlanta, Georgia. I work at a hospital near us, and my wife, Kristine, takes care of the household. Kristine is Hawaiian, and when we go back to visit family, we usually stay at a hotel. We normally visit Maui twice a year, and since we have outgrown hotel rooms, it just made sense to buy a condo with great amenities so that we feel like we ARE on vacation. We take a lot of pride in keeping our Honua Kai condo perfect and our guests happy. Our condo is filled with amenities to make sure that you are comfortable, and will happily do everything we can to accomodate your needs.

Louis Trinh purchased this condo in 2009

Why Louis Trinh chose Lahaina

Honua Kai is a brand-resort on North Kaanapali Beach. This area is quiet, has great views of Lanai and Molokai, and you can snorkel right on our beach. Relax poolside and take in the sunset, its very peaceful. From November to April, you can catch whales playing in the Ocean.

What makes this condo unique

With new furnishings, a fully-equipped kitchen, and hi-def TVs, there is no reason to leave the condo. There are so many amenities at Honua Kai, including Concierge Service, an Activities Desk next to the Pool, TEN Viking grills for you to use, and two fitness centers.

The only way to rent at Honua Kai...or on West Maui!

  • 5 of 5

We loved Honua Kai and the condo. It had everything we could need and was well taken care of. The underground parking was perfect. We loved opening the lanai doors and enjoying our coffee/breakfast from Aina Gourmet (onsite). The kitchen was perfect for when we wanted to eat in, Duke's was perfect for when we didn't.

This condo really isn't lacking anything. We stayed at the Marriott Ocean Club on Kaanapali Beach for the last three nights and I really wished we were back at Honua Kai. It's a less busy area but just as gorgeous with great food/drinks/amenities.

As other reviewers have mentioned the high efficiency laundry does take a while. As long as you do a load of laundry each day you'll be fine. Might suggest putting an extra set of beach towels in the condo so one set could be drying.

The fitness center was nice too and it's easy to walk over to Times Market for groceries. Book this condo you won't regret it. We can't wait to come back!

Beautiful place to return to!

  • 5 of 5

It was such a pleasure to have the opportunity to return to Louis and Kristine's condo at the Honua Kai. We stayed here last year and couldn't wait to return, knowing what a great property it is. The condo is stocked with everything you can think of to enjoy this Hawaiian paradise. Everything is first class. You will love it here! The pools are great as is the accessibility to top restaurants. You can always get a terrific meal at Dukes right there on the property. And, it's only a short drive to other fantastic restaurants. If you want to cook your own meals in the condo, that's also an option.

We highly recommend this particular property. Louis is exceptionally responsive if you need anything, and is so professional in managing their rental. Don't hesitate to book this property right away!

Great location, great condo, great resort!

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent time on Maui staying at Honua Kai. Many thanks to Louis for providing valuable suggestions for things to do and see, and for keeping in touch with us. This is a beautiful condo - the balcony is great, all of the beach stuff was so nice to have, the bed was comfortable, and the underground parking was a nice luxury. Such a great vacation - wish we could have been there longer!

Beautiful resort and accommodating host in Maui!

  • 5 of 5

The host of this rental, Louis, was extremely kind and accommodating.

The resort was beautiful with numerous pools, hot tubs and a water slide for the kids.

The snorkeling directly off the beach was quite good and many whales were spotted throughout the week while we were on the beach.

The condo is beautifully decorated and is sure to meet all your needs!

My husband and I spent 12 days at Louis' condo and could not have been happier! The unit was very clean, well stocked and had everything we could have possibly needed. Louis was a pleasure to deal with on every level. I would highly recommend this property. We will be returning to Maui and look forward to renting from Louis again.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for leaving such a nice review! Its perfectly written! Everyone reads them and will help future guests feel more comfortable staying with us. We appreciate your kindness and are glad that you had a great time on Maui! 12 days seem like a long time, but it goes by quickly! There are so many beaches, restaurants, activities, and sightseeing....there's not enough time to experience it all!

What’s not to love?

  • 5 of 5

Lovely condo that seems like a luxury hotel. Louis did everything in his power to insure that our stay was the best it could possibly be. There is a restaurant “Duke” on the premises that was very good with a happy hour and live music every evening.

Condo is in the sunny part of Island we would absolutely stay there again.
