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.

Location is second to none! Old school Maui at its finest!

  • 5 of 5

If you want brand new sparkling Granite and marble then this is NOT the place for you! If you come to Maui for the abundant sea life, the world class snorkeling, the amazing scenery, the exciting boogieboarding and the seventies pace of life, this is the perfect place for you. We stayed with 4 adults and 2 kids and this place was magical! We were in the water less than five minutes and we had a whole family of turtles around us!! Amazing!! After having visited the Maui Ocean Centre, we now had an idea of what we were going to see in the water and we were not disappointed!! Dealing with the Varnells was a totally positive experience all the way through the booking process! They were very willing to let us in a little earlier as we were moving from another place and had food. A bottle of wine and snacks were awaiting us on our arrival, which was very much appreciated! I will be back!

Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5

I’m so glad I stumbled on this property on vrbo. The unit was clean and comfortably housed our group of 5 people. The beds were newer and very comfortable. The condo complex is small and quiet and had amazing snorkeling steps away from the condo unit. It’s only a 5 minute walk to a beautiful sandy beach at Napili. Definitely would stay here again.

Relaxing with a beautiful view

  • 4 of 5

Great location. The view is spectacular. The unit was nice, but the furniture was a bit uncomfortable. It was easy to communicate with the owners. Over all a great vacation.

Beautiful, quiet spot right on the ocean

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at Honokeana Cove condo's. The development is very quiet and the grounds are beautifully maintained. Nice snorkeling is just steps from your condo, it's a rocky entry, but you will swan with turtles, Moorish Idol fish, trumpet fish, etc. The tiki torches are lit every night making for a dreamy evening view. You're close to Lahaina for shopping, but this is a low density area, not tourist filled. Kapalua Bay is close also, which has a great sandy beach and good snorkeling. Try the Gazebo restaurant for brunch, it's close by and worth the wait. The condo is dated, but it filled our needs nicely. The only thing I would have like to see is some bars of soap for a quick shower before grocery shopping for the essentials. Wine, cheese, crackers and a welcome note greeted us upon our arrival.

Owner's Response: Aloha Sue, Thank you for your nice review. Also, we want to thank you for your comment on "more soap". We have taken your suggestion and have put baskets in each bath room with 15-20 bars in each. Again, thank you. Graham

Although dated it was great to find a 3 bedroom property at the cove

  • 4 of 5

The property had everything we needed and the owners were very easy to work with, especially letting us have a late check out for our departure. 217 is ideal for families with children, but the spiral staircase was definitely scary for a four year old. We loved having all of the snorkels, bogey boards and beach toys available , and the 9 month old did great on the brown shag carpet, much softer than the usual marble tiles! We loved the easy access the condo has to the cove for swimming with the turtles and also the pool and grassy area for chasing geckos! Another great stay at Honokeana Cove

Amazing location!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this unit in mid-September with my son and 4 year old grandson, and I highly recommend it. It had 3 bedrooms, so we each had our space and it was very clean and had everything we needed. The location can't be beat. It's beautiful and to be able to wake up each morning and watch the honu feed in the cove was wonderful. The snorkeling in the cove is great as well, and it was so nice to just be able to walk out the door and into the water. This complex is small and intimate and seemed to be very family oriented. I do recommend this unit, especially to those with children.
