*We offer great deals and specials on last-minute bookings and gap deals, etc.*

You have discovered an absolutely breathtaking 9th floor interior corner unit at the gorgeous Honua Kai Beach Resort. Our luxurious approx. 1300 sq. ft., 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom residence condominium offers all the amenities you could ever wish for. Ours is a unique, extremely spacious floor plan, and is one of only four units in the entire property with this design. When you step off the elevator on the 9th floor and walk down the hallway to our condo, you feel as if you have your own private wing. We enjoy spectacular views, with the isle of Lanai as the centerpiece. You can even see Black Rock, the iconic cliff that separates Kaanapali's two sandy beaches. Your dream vacation is waiting for you!

Honua Kai is the first beachfront property built on Maui in over 20 years. When you walk around the impeccably landscaped grounds, the warm, tropical breeze envelops you, and you melt into total relaxation. The resort is upscale and very elegant, yet is comfortable and children friendly. The three spectacular swimming pools each have a unique feel, and all are surrounded by modern lounge chairs and striking red umbrellas. The formal pool near the Hokulani tower is a gorgeous infinity pool, featuring two hot tubs and a perfect ocean view. The Ohana Pool near the Konea tower has a 120 foot waterslide and a waterfall that cascades into the main swimming area. Natural lava rock forms an elevated hot tub. Attached to the main pool is a shallow 'keiki' pool for kids, complete with a sandy beach. The River Pool features a meandering river, flowing through smaller swimming holes and waterfalls.

Viking gas grills are located near the pool areas. It's amazing to be barbequing while looking out at the crystal blue ocean! If you want a break from cooking, visit the famous Duke's Restaurant, on the front of the property. Duke's open-air bar and restaurant offers delicious breakfast, lunch, and dinner. You can sit inside or beachfront under umbrellas. While dining in the evenings, you experience the sounds of soothing live Hawaiian music.

An upscale, gourmet deli, coffee, and sundries shop, called 'Aina Market,' is located in the Honua Kai lobby. Renowned Maui chef James McDonald of the Pacific'O restaurant group, is contributing his talents to the cuisine at 'Aina.' You can order delicious coffees, baked goods, and sandwiches. It's also a great place to purchase local Hawaiian foods and household items.

Our condo includes all the amenities you would expect from a five star resort. The upscale furnishings are extremely welcoming and comfortable. The full kitchen features granite countertops, Bosch appliances, travertine floor, and sparkling cafe lights. There is an in-house washer and dryer, nine-foot ceilings with crown molding, three flat screen TVs, a blue-ray DVD player, and air conditioning. Our favorite feature is the 'fold-a-way' glass wall, which completely opens up to the lanai, for a wonderful indoor/outdoor living area. Our placement in the inner courtyard is perfect, as we are protected from the trade winds. Most two bedroom units look directly at each other, whereas ours is on the 9th floor, angled toward the ocean and overlooking the property, not at another unit.

Our personal property manager, Kaanapali Beach Properties, will greet you in the lobby upon your arrival, will escort you to the unit, and will be available for your questions throughout your stay. Their offices are directly across the street, as well as a shopping center that includes the Times Supermarket, Subway, a video/DVD rental store, a pizza shop, and a coffee shop.

You have complete beach access at the property, with spectacular snorkeling and swimming. Or you can sit on the white sandy beach under a palm tree, and doze while listening to the waves lap on the shore. Honua Kai's location allows for easy access to snorkeling, surfing, boating, whale watching, golf, tennis, and shopping. You can take a long, leisurely walk to scenic Black Rock and Whaler's Village for additional shopping and dining. Welcome to paradise!

The resort charges all guests a $15/day parking fee.

About Al and Jeni Driscoll

We fell in love with Maui on our honeymoon more than 25 years ago. We've been back more than a dozen times, and share our love of the islands with our two daughters. When we heard Honua Kai was to be built, we jumped at the opportunity to be owners. The Honua Kai Resort and our unit are more incredible than we ever thought possible. We are so pleased to share our dream in paradise with you! Al and Jeni

Al and Jeni Driscoll purchased this condo in 2010

Why Al and Jeni Driscoll chose West Maui

Honua Kai's location is ideal! Situated at the northern end of golden Kaanapali, it is on one of the finest beaches in the world. The resort is minutes from Lahaina Town, spectacular snorkeling, ocean activities, shopping, and dining.

What makes this condo unique

The Honua Kai Resort offers world-class amenities. A huge advantage is that the property is not overly crowded. It's great to visit Lahaina, Whaler's Village, or the more populated beaches -- then come home to the warmth and relaxation of Honua Kai. It's a place where you feel special and welcomed!

Great Maui Condo

  • 5 of 5

Condo well equipped, Good towels, basic beach essentials, and basic kitchen and bath supplies to get started. Clean unit and great floor plan. Deck is smaller than most 2 bedroom units, but it does seem to be more private than other decks. Elevators are quick and efficient, parking is easy, and 2 of 3 pools are heated, New supplies store and cafe in lobby now open, which is handy. If we returned as a family of four to the Honua Kai, i would definatley look at this specific condo. Dealing with Jeni was great. Thanks and hope to be back soon.

Amazing Maui Experience!

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful experience! The condo was our home away from home and helped make our vacation that much better. We had everything we needed, including beach essentials, loved having the beach chairs there to grab and go. The four of us had plenty of room, never felt crowded in the condo and the room was super quiet. I don't know if it's the location of the room itself, but I think it's the first place I've ever stayed where it was like we had our own private floor, it was so quiet and private. The condo was very clean and comfortable, it was exactly what we were looking for in a rental. The Honua Kai itself is absolutely beautiful and the staff is very friendly and helpful. We spent one day at the "lazy river" pool and it never felt crowded. We found four chairs together easily and enjoyed our beautiful surroundings. When booking Jeni was so quick to respond and was very thorough and helpful, very pleasant and easy experience. Check-in was quick and simple, we called the property management group as directed upon arrival and she was in the lobby with a smile. It was our first trip to Maui and I certainly hope it's not our last, I feel in love! If we return as a group of 4 I would, without a second thought, book this condo again from Jeni and Al. Thank you for such a wonderful experience, I cannot wait to return!

Honua Kai stay June 2016

  • 5 of 5

The condo was roomy, comfortable, clean and equipped with the essentials you need (towels, shampoo & conditioner, laundry soap, kitchen gadgets, beach towels, coolers & some beach gear). We are a family of 5 adults age 21-65. We used the pull-out couch which was comfortable and if you don't want to fold it up every night, you have plenty of room to maneuver around it. The open-wall lanai extends the living space and has a great view. The condo's decor is updated and aesthetically pleasing.

The resort grounds are well maintained. The pools were clean and offered areas for all ages. We had breakfast at Duke's and enjoyed cocktails there in the evening. All resort staff were helpful and friendly. We used the concierge services at Honua Kai and they were awesome. Their help in planning activities was instrumental to the success of our trip. (Thank you Gina!)

All contacts with the owners were answered almost immediately. The property managers in Maui met us promptly at the condo and their offices were very close-by. They gave us contact numbers in case we had further needs, which we did not.

All-in-all, I can't think of a single negative. You will not be disappointed if you rent this condo. Thank you Jeni and Al!

Wonderful stay in a beautiful condo.

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I shared this condo with our son and daughter-in-law. The view was gorgeous, beds were comfortable, kitchen was well furnished and we had enough privacy so everyone was comfortable.

I would have given this 5 stars if it weren't for the air conditioning. Sometimes it was too cold and the fan kept running so we just turned it off. We didn't call anyone about it because we were under the impression that we couldn't adjust it. Our son and his wife visit Kaanapali every year and thought this was a particularly nice unit. I would stay here again if the air could be worked out.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your response and review. Glad you enjoyed the beautiful view and the accomodations our suite offers. As you mentioned, you would have given 5 stars, with the exception of the air conditioning. Our apologies that it did not work as you had expected and there was confusion as to how to adjust it. We had the AC checked by our property manager and all is in perfect working order. Possibly it had to do with when the lanai doors are open, the air conditioning tuns off, as in all suites on the property. There are instructions on how to adjust the AC inside the suite. Also, our property manager is wonderful and is located directly across the street. They will help by phone or come over to help immediately with any problem big or small. Jeni and I are also available by phone or email if anything arises. We strive to make sure our guests have the best possible time and the highest level of accommodation and customer service. Sorry you had an issue with the air, but glad you enjoyed the rest of our suite, as well as the property. We hope that you do choose to stay with us again. Again, thank you for staying. Mahalo, Al and Jeni Driscoll
