Guestbook comments from the owner

Whether you want to sit in the sun, read while listening to the sound of the waves or be on the move from morning until night this is the place to be. There is no better snorkeling anywhere than right here at the cove and it is right out side your door. Sea turtles are always there and they enjoy sunning themselves on the rocks of the cove. This unit has a fully equipped kitchen, a nice living room and two bedrooms. The lanai is the perfect place to drink your morning coffee. The condo has a pool and gas grills. We love spending time there. A great sandy beach is just a block away. This is a fantastic place.

Beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Honokeana Cove and hope to reserve this property again in the future. We found the cove to be excellent for snorkeling and we had access to snorkeling/beach gear at the condo. The condo had everything we needed. We had a wonderful family Christmas holiday in Maui. The owners were a joy to work with.

The owner was extremely accommodating and helpful at making this the best family vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

Very easy checkin. The house was cool upon arrival. Probably the only place in this complex with A/C. Location is unbeatable. The cove is quiet, exclusive and a wonderful place to spend lazy days snorkeling, in the pool and on the grass relaxing. We had a welcome bottle of wine to celebrate our arrival. The beds were very comfortable. The house despite being dated with Old Hawaiian Furniture was comfortable. The only downside to the property was that it may be due for some updating. The Owner was extremely accommodating and truly made our stay wonderful! Would definitely return!

Beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

This is probably one of the best-kept secrets on Maui. The cove is absolutely beautiful. We enjoyed every morning and evening relaxing on the condo deck or sitting poolside watching the giant turtles in the cove and listening to the ocean.

The snorkeling is one of the finest areas in Maui. We can't wait to visit again. Our grandkids had the time of their life.

The location was perfect ... Great access to shopping, restaurants, and Kapalua which is a beautiful beach is within walking distance.

The condo had everything we needed and the view was spectacular ... would recommend to anyone that wants an amazing view and an immaculately kept property.

Owner's Response: Aloha Colleen, Thank you for the glowing review. So happy that you and your family had a great time and enjoyed our condo as much as we do. The maid said she could hardly tell that you all had been there. She said this was the BEST move out she has ever had. We will be happy to have you as return guests in our alumni program in the future. Mahalo, Bill!

Wonderful spot for snorkelers

  • 5 of 5

The location on this property is indeed ideal for folks looking to explore the sea life around Maui. The property itself is very comfortable, with two bedrooms and a bathroom in the downstairs area and a loft with another bed and bath upstairs. The stairs are a bit tricky, so I would not recommend them for anyone with difficulty walking/climbing. The living room/dining room area is comfortable and has a fabulous view over the large balcony out to the ocean. The kitchen is small, but fully stocked and grilling outside at the complex's grills is more fun anyway. Napili is up on the Northwest coast, so about an hour drive from the airport and the larger tourist areas, but if you are looking for a quieter, more outdoorsy vacation, it is ideal.

Owner's Response: Aloha Row, Thank you for the great review. We agree, the snorkeling in Honokeana Cove is the best. We hope your entire stay was just as wonderful and would love to have you back againas an alumni. Mahalo, Graham

Can't beat this location!

  • 4 of 5

This condo is the perfect location. It is literally steps from some of the best snorkeling on the island. We paid for a couple of excursions, but kept coming back to our condo as the best fish and turtle viewing. The area is a bit away from the masses of people, but still close enough for shopping and excursions. We liked the privacy and the slower pace.

Inside the condo was well kept. Kitchen was well set, but we mostly cooked on the grill by the pool. Beds were comfortable and we appreciated the room air conditioners on the hotter days. (Be careful to empty the condensation pans!). The front bed room (king) has a good bit of road noise and the loft access is a narrow spiral staircase, which was a challenge for my father. Minor issues were dealt with quickly and efficiently. In short, a great place to stay!

Owner's Response: Aloha Julie, Thank you for the great review. We agree that snorkeling at the Cove is the best. I am happy we were able to work around our crashed computer and get the A/C operating for you. The unit in the master bedroom, in addition to cooling, can help provide "white" noise to help mask traffic noise. This has been reported as effective. Hope to see you at #217 in the future as an alumni. Mahalo, Bill

Terrific Rental

  • 5 of 5

This condo rental is in the perfect location. It is on a secluded cove - great for snorkeling with the turtles or SUP. The owner was really easy to work with and very accommodating. If you looking for a more secluded vacation away from the crowds of Kanapali- this is the place! My only suggestion is that the interiors is a bit datedd, but I'm an interior designer, so I have different expectations. The beds were very comfortable. I agree with the other comments- Hidden Gem!
