About Joan Sorensen

We have always loved coming to Maui. We all really get sunburned so we decided we needed a unit on the ocean with a lanai.

Hope you rent our place, you'll love it.

Why Joan Sorensen chose Honokowai

We chose this location because of its beauty and access to the ocean and it was large enough to fit all of as we grew up. Two bathrooms are just the ticket for us as well as the two bedrooms.

What makes this condo unique

Your view of Molokai and Lanai is spectacular, the turtles feeding out front are fun to watch and during whale season the whales are pretty neat to view. This property is close enough to shopping and allows great morning walks. Easy access for young folks and old folks for snorkeling! It has a Jacuzzi, pool, barbeque and beach chairs for sitting and just looking and reading. You have access to WiFi in your unit and the building comes equipped with several in-house washer and dryers. In house activities manager.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Belated Happy Birthday! We are so happy to have you back for the fifth time. We are glad you find its location beautiful as well as convenient. It is a pleasure for us to have people staying in 103 who appreciate the sunsets, whales, turtles and the view from the lanai and front lawn.

We agree, why go out to eat in the evening when you can sit on the lanai and enjoy the sunset and afterglow.

Please remember us when you return to Maui your next time.

Thank you.

First floor lanai couldn’t get any closer to the ocean.

  • 5 of 5

Conveniently located and comfortable condo. The sound of the surf was amazing. Several places to eat close by as well as a convenience store for food and beverages. We couldn’t find a parking space at Kapalua Beach, so we used Uber most days. I highly recommend Uber. The drivers had recommendations, and no worries about parking or break ins. Joan’s condo and the Paki Maui property are well maintained. We look forward to staying again. Hopefully the sun will come out to play the next time we visit. Mahalo, Joan.

Wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family of two adults and two kids (ages 6 and 9) had a fantastic stay at Paki Maui. It was our first time in Maui and we found the location of the condo to be ideal, with lots of oceanfront and amenities (restaurants, supermarkets, stores) within easy walking distance, and several really great swimming and snorkeling beaches within a short drive. The pool/hot tub and grill area were great for relaxing after long days on the beach. We saw beautiful sunrises, rainbows, and sunsets every day right from the lanai, and many sea turtles in the water. We didn't try to do any major excursions other than visiting beaches, Lahaina, and the aquarium - all were within an easy drive. There were several great Maui guide books in the condo which were better than the ones we had brought with us. The unit was clean and comfortable. Plenty of space and a great layout for 4 people. Our kids loved having their separate twin beds and own bathroom. Wi-fi worked well. Joan was very accommodating with a late checkout which allowed us to make the most of our last day in Hawaii. Overall, we highly recommend this property for an amazing and relaxing family vacation!

Amazing ocean front property! Very clean and very comfortable. Highly recommend this property!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in July 2017. The ocean is steps away! Great beach walks in the morning and swimming with turtles in the afternoon! Each day 3 to 4 turtles arrive to rest on the rocks directly in front of the unit. Everything you need is here and very clean! Beds are very comfy. Dining directly across the street and so many stores, rental places (scuba, boards, mopeds, etc) all within a short walk! Cannot wait to book a return trip! Thank you Joan for providing paradise on earth for our family and all your helpful info and kindness!

Lovely location and comfortable condo

  • 4 of 5

The condo is a bit dated. The couch is seriously uncomfortable. The bed is wonderful. The location is perfect, close to snorkeling, Lahaina and shopping. People were nice. Very very affordable for 2 bedroom and 2 bath

Owner's Response: Hello Sandta, Thank you for your review. I was a bit confused by your review as when I sent you a reply to your e-mail after your arrival you said. I quote: "We found the condo to be perfect! I do have one question. They are coming today to update the cable tv. We found the notice on the table. Do we have to be here to let them in?" End quote. By the way, When we update the unit we do it in sections. That way it isn't so hard on the budget. Our last update was new carpet through out a year ago also new beds in both bedrooms plus the bedding, sheets, mattress pads, spreads. That took a pretty penny. Remember we are not a corporation and don't get corporate rates for remodels and new intstallations like the large hotels along the Kaanapali Strip. We pay just what every other common Joe pays. As for the sofa, I just purchased a new mattress from Mind's Eye Interiors late January, gosh, maybe someone switched ours out from another unit. That happens you know, friends in another unit have a "crappy" sofa mattress and/or cushions and out they go to the unit the friends are staying in. Your have no idea how we have things walk off from the unit...I've had coffee tables, end tables lanai chairs, pots, pans, lamps you name it disappear never to be seen again. Anyway thank you for your input. In spite of the inconvenience I hope you had a great time visiting Maui. My Best Joan

Fantastic location right on the water. Clean and easy. Super responsive owner.

  • 5 of 5

Like all the other reviewers have said this place (and Joan) is great. Quieter than you will get staying in the big hotels, but that is exactly what we wanted. Easy access to all kinds of stuff (grocery shopping, farmers market, fish tacos, etc) and first floor unit that overlooks the shoreline can't be beat. If you want nightlife go further south to the the bigger hotels. If you want relaxing days laying next to beach, strolling to a real farmers market, and to never be concerned about enough loungers, etc., this is the place.
