Aloha & Welcome to Honua Kai's finest "Penthouse" 1br/1ba, Suite 713 Hokulani

There is only ONE "Penthouse" One-bedroom ocean view suite in the entire Resort. This is it! Exceptional Ocean Views of the Pacific ocean, and the beautiful Island of Molokai. Lie in bed and watch the Whales play... You will not find a finer One-bedroom Ocean View Suite at the Honua Kai Resort and Spa. The Honua Kai Resort & Spa offers just seven"inner courtyard" One-bedroom suites, and they are considered to be the very best available. Suite #713 resides on the TOP floor of tis prestigious "stack". Simply put, Suite #713 is the finest one bedroom available at the Honua Kai Resort & Spa. "Hale Lanikai", is the name I have chosen for my new "Top Shelf" Maui home. The Hawaiian words translate as, Home of the Heavenly Seas. As Hale Lanikai resides atop the resort, the views are uninterrupted, both above and below. My home offers a sense of privacy that most suites at the Resort do not enjoy. Hale Lanikai offers partial ocean views from within the suite, and amazing Ocean and Molokai views from the spacious lanai. This one bedroom suitewith it's additional sofa bed is considered one of the very best Ocean View Suites available, and is situated within the inner courtyard. Inner courtyard suites offer protection from the prevailing Northeast trade winds, and are very quiet. Being a top floor suite, there is never a chance of noise from above. If ocean views and privacy are what you are looking for, combined with Five Star Hotel interior and amenities, you will be very pleased with the Hale Lanikai.

There is no poor choice at the Honua Kai Resort & Spa; it is quickly gaining recognition as Maui's finest "All Luxury Suite Destination". On-site you will discover a wonderful beachside restaurant, gourmet deli grocery store, one of the nicest and largest fitness/spas on Maui, multiple meandering pool areas, and one of the best beaches I have ever visited. A new beachside boardwalk accommodates walkers and runners for miles of spectacular ocean views and the nearby Islands of Lanai and Molokai. Whatever guides your decision to vacation at the Honua Kai Resort & Spa, you will surely be delighted.

Honua Kai Vacation Rentals & Realty manages my home. From the very first time you contact one of our Guest Service Specialists, to the moment you are personally met at the Honua Kai Resort upon your arrival, you will experience service with Aloha. Honua Kai Vacation Rentals & Realty will provide you with exceptional personalized services, from the lowest guaranteed priced Luau's, Zip-line Rides and Snorkel Tours, to in-room Chef Services. As my guest, you will enjoy FULL USE of the pools, BBQ's, and Fitness Spa. Honua Kai Vacation Rentals & Realty is located directly across the street from the Resort, and is there to take care of your every need.

About Steven G Gatchell & Barry Ware

We are a small property management company located in West Maui. We have been in business for 10 years and specialize in only the "finest" Ocean Front and Ocean View Condos/Homes in West Maui.

Why Steven G Gatchell & Barry Ware chose Lahaina

I have been coming to Maui every January for the last 7 years to a very nice timeshare situated right on the beach. This last year I was floored by the new Honua Kai Resort, which I happened upon while walking along the beach and beach-side boardwalk bordering the resort. This is one of the nicest resorts I have ever seen, in every aspect. I was not planning to purchase a second home, but when I saw that unit 713 was for sale, I could not pass up the chance to own it. It is one of the few one bedroom suites that is situated facing the courtyard below, with views of the resort pools and a straight shot view of the beach, ocean and the island of Molokai in the distance. It is on the top floor, so you really have a sense of perspective when gazing out the windows or relaxing on its large lanai. It really took my breath away and I knew instantly that staying in this unit would always bring me much happiness and joy.

What makes this condo unique

I was struck by the serene sense of openness of the Honua Kai lobby and grounds. The furnishings are top-notch with wonderful sitting areas in an extremely spacious lobby and courtyard, beautiful large pools, and just a great sense of calm and relaxation. There is plenty of great walking paths and the boardwalk with surrounding putting green grass takes you all the way down to the end of Kaanapali beach - or you can walk along the ocean parallel to the boardwalk with the waves lapping at your feet. The fitness center is large, has plenty of aerobic and weight machines and is truly a joy to experience. I am a long-time fitness enthusiast, so I really appreciate this amenity. This is truly a 5 star resort atmosphere and my one bedroom suite is one of the very best units and locations in the whole resort. Steve Gatchell, who heads the Honua Kai Vacation Rentals & Realty that manages my suite, is located just two stop lights away, and Steven and Barry are available to make sure that every detail of your stay goes smoothly and that you are well taken care of. Steven also has many years of experience on Maui and can help arrange for discounted activities, if desired. He also is an owner at Honai Kai so he is expert in every aspect of the resort. Rest assured that he will facilitate a wonderful stay for you at my Honua Kai 'Ohana Lanikai' #713 I know you will enjoy it as much as I do and will want to come back.

Great HK unit to stay in

  • 5 of 5

This unit had a great view of the ocean, pool, and courtyard. The ability to open up the lanai doors and let the breeze just really made the place. I like the ability to close off the bedroom.

Had plenty of fun on the beach - great waves. And Duke's by the pool was an added bonus.

HK and this 7th floor unit is hard to beat.

Owner's Response: Aloha Jared, Thank you for your wonderful review! The beach in-front of the resort is a wonderful place for relaxing and snorkeling. The Honua Kai "kids" pool is almost finished being refurbished and I hope you and your kids can enjoy it next visit. Mahalo! Barry

  • 5 of 5

"Honua Kai's Finest" absolutely true statement. What a view! This penthouse unit is beautifully furnished and is in pristine condition. Steven Gatchell and company (mauilife Realty) leave no stone unturned assuring that their guests are comfortable and happy. Beach chairs, towels, boogie boards and a cooler with ice packs--Honua Kai's Finest has you covered. "Meticulous" defines 713H from the kitchenware, linens, electronics, cleanliness, maintenance, and management. VRBO property 289720 is outstanding.

Excellent Property & View

  • 4 of 5

Stayed a week in #713 and enjoyed our stay. Condo was as advertised and the perfect size for two adults. Plenty of beach toys left behind by previous tenants. You can pay extra for maid service as it's not connected to the Honua Kai property. View was excellent and access to the numerous pools and Duke's restaurant made for a relaxing week. A few nits - not associated with the unit, but with the property itself - 1) the lanai police slipped messages under your door reminding you to keep towels off the lanai furniture. On an island that prides itself for going green, why not let folks dry their towels outside instead of running the electricity for the dryers? 2) signs posted in numerous locations around the approaches to the pool areas indicating the spreading towels out to reserve lounge chairs poolside or under umbrellas was not allowed. Sitting on our 7th floor lanai it was easy to observe how little this policy is enforced. It actually rivalled the bad behavior we've seen on previous cruises we've taken. 3) Given the design of the property it was difficult to avoid hearing the babies in other units across the way or the party animals in various units enjoying themselves into the early AM hours. Again, these are nits and didn't take away from the views and our enjoyment of the #713 property. We would recommend this location to anyone.

Owner's Response: Aloha, Thanks for your review, and although it was not "everything" to you, we are happy that the suite and our service was... Unfortunately, a Resort cannot be "everything", to every person. For anyone reading this, outside of a few concerns this guest had not related to Suite 713, or our service, this Guest recommends this "location to anyone"...
