One of the best views on Maui, this 3 bedroom condo is about as close to the ocean as you can get. The beach is just steps away, with views of Lanai and Molokai. Walking distance to restaurants, coffee shops and shopping. Free wireless internet! The pool has 2 BBQ's for dining in and the kitchen is fully stocked.
A complete remodel has just been completed October 2010. New granite countertops in the kitchen and both bathrooms, new tile in both showers, new carpet in the bedrooms. The kitchen is entirely new, with new cabinets and a new range, and the entire condo has new paint.

About Harlan Karnofsky
I have been visiting Maui for years, and decided that Kahana is the best place to stay.
Harlan Karnofsky purchased this Condo in 2010
Why Harlan Karnofsky chose Honokowai
A 3 bedroom place on the beach is so rare!
What makes this Condo unique
A true vacation in a small complex where you can relax and have some peace and quiet, but close enough to Kaanapali and Kapalua for fun and adventure.

Can’t get closer to the beach!
Perfect space for two couples, three children (8,8,6), and a 10 month old baby, although I wouldn’t recommend more people than that. The house had all the kitchen supplies we needed. We cooked breakfast most mornings and dinner on a couple nights and utilized the BBQs at the pool. The property had a brand new Pack-n-Play we were able to use. The room with 2 beds fit the other 3 kids nicely. The unit had a nice stackable washer/dryer plus a “beach closet” filled with beach towels, toys, boogie boards, skim board, pool noodles, and flotation tubes just to name a few.
The property was clean when we arrived, but I can see why Harlan, the owner, made a point to have us all wash off the sand at the pool side shower before heading in, the sand really gets all over the place even when your trying to keep it off!
The location has to be the best part about this place, we saw a whale from our balcony on day one and a huge turtle was hanging out 50 yards down the beach our whole visit, your not only on the beach and have an amazing view of the sunset every night, but you are also 10 min from so many other cool spots like, places for a lazy sandy beach day, a walk out on the Dragons Teeth, golfing, shopping at Whalers Village and Front street, several nice restaurants and large resort activities, we were fortunate enough to experience all these things on our 7 nights on the island.
I’ve read the other reviews and feel the complaints are a bit nit picky, I mean the Internet wasn’t the best connection. If the Internet connectivity is a major request, maybe this place isn’t for you. I travel 60 days a year and stay primarily at hotels, I go on trips expecting Internet issues. Always have a backup plan! I couldn’t tell you if the TV worked, we never turned it on. I highly recommend unplugging your devices if you go. It was a great location for our best family vacation yet.
Luau (Drums of the Pacific)
Restaurants: Merriman’s and Plantation House Restaurant
Take-Out food: Honokowai Okazuya (Harlan recomended), Fish Market Maui, and Joeys Kitchen (spareribs).
Dessert: find a guy selling organic shave ice out the back of his Red Toyota Truck, but he’s always moving he was near The Blow Hole (think he’s unlicensed), we also enjoyed the Hula Pie at Dukes Beach House inside the Honua Kai Resort (an amazing place to bring the kids at twilight and have them swim in the many shallow pools, it’s for guests but we chanced it and had a blast)
Location was great, but there were issues, including the owner.
The location was great and we saw whales from our balcony. However, we did not have internet for our stay, until the last day. We accepted the owner's excuse that it was because of the wind. However, we spoke with neighbors and their internet was working. It turns out the modem was unplugged. Silly me, I thought things should be in working order before guests arrive. The kitchen and baths were mostly updated. However, the upstairs shower knob fell off, the towels (enough for 6 only, so we had to keep rewashing), had bleach stains. The sofa and loveseat was uneven that you had to prop yourself to sit evenly with a pillow, and more seating would have been nice. The window in the downstairs bedroom was broken. The A/C did not work in one of the bedrooms, and a repairman had to be called after trying to reset the panel box and trying every button and plug. He got it working after about 10 minutes. Then the morning after our arrival there was a note on the door that they were going to spray insecticide (on my bday), and we were to clear off all counters. There were not enough towel racks for the six of us, and the towel rack in the bottom bathroom was broken. Then the owner tried to blame us for a screen tear that was there when we arrived, then tried to charge us $75 for it. The upstairs bath door would not properly close/seal, which caused it to constantly hit the door jam due to winds. And bring some good toilet paper! There is only a small soap bar in the shower and sink, so bring your sundries. Harlan did not consider any credit even though we had to use our own data for most of our stay.
A perfect place to stay in a beautiful area
Every expectation was met during our stay here- amenities, cleanliness, ease and comfort, approximity to beach, etc. We will be staying here again numerous times throughout the year. I highly recommend this property for anyone!
Nicest place I have ever been !
This is the nicest beachfront condo on the west shore of Maui. Unbelievable sunsets, and peaceful mornings on the deck
Overall a nice house with a gorgeous view from the deck. The only issue was the lack of a strong ac unit, which dropped the review by one star.
WOW...WOW...AND WOW!! A True Gem!!
The condo was comfortable and immaculate and had everything you needed for your stay. The furnishings had a Hawaiian flair, which was so refreshing. I enjoyed in the morning having my coffee on the lanai with the ocean in full review, and in the evenings having a glass of wine as I watched the sunset on the ocean. Pure Beauty!!
The location was great. It was away from the hustle and bustle, however not to far away to be able to enjoy shopping, beaches, and great food. If you enjoy a Good breakfast I highly recommend The Gazebo which is right up the road. We adventure out to Slaughterhouse Beach in Kapalua for some snorkeling, swimming, and were able to see some turtles. We also drove up the coast and made a few stops for breathtaking scenic views. A very enjoyable day.
We decided to do the Road to Hana, however did not want to drive, so we would be able to enjoy it to the fullest. So we booked a tour with Karen Danaher @The Hawaii Concierge, she was able to get us all set-up for the tour. Our tour was with Mahalo Tours, and Nani was our guide and she did an amazing job. Not a boring moment. If you are deciding to do some activities and need assistance call Karen.
It was nice to have a piece of paradise. Needless to say our stay was beyond our expectations, and would not hesitate to recommend this rental for your next vacation.
