Overview

About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps 4

. . . . WELCOME! Enjoy Old Hawaii “Aloha” in modern comfort. #114 is a ground floor 1-bedroom oceanfront condo in the most romantic spot of West Maui. Your condo opens directly onto a landscaped lawn with heated swimming pool & barbecue facilities. Honokeana Cove is directly in front of your lanai - a secluded & uncrowded snorkeling area with tropical fish & coral gardens. Here, you can swim just yards away from the many giant Green Sea Turtles who live in the Cove. No crowds or concrete here! Just 38 low-rise condos in a private gated community right on the ocean.

. . . . YOUR UNIT. #114 is right in the center of the oceanfront. The condo is crisp & clean, with sparkling tile & stone, plus Hawaiian fabrics & prints. Relax on the west-facing lanai & enjoy sweeping ocean & surf views, afternoon sun & romantic sunsets. During whale season, humpback whales blow & splash in the Molokai channel.

. . . . AIR CONDITIONED THROUGHOUT (no extra charge). #114 is modern, well equipped for your comfort & relaxation. The air conditioned bedroom may be configured with a king bed or two single beds. Double-glazed windows & blackout curtains ensure quiet & peaceful sleep. The beds have foam toppers on one side but not the other: if the mattress is too soft or too firm, you can flip it over. The air conditioned living room has a queen sofa bed & there is a folding screen (stored beneath the king bed) for extra privacy if desired.

. . . . MODERN KITCHEN. #114’s kitchen is fully equipped, with granite counters & almost everything you are used to having at home. We keep it up to date: in 2014 we purchased new Henckel kitchen knives & steak knives; new Circulon pots & pans; & new plastic tumblers. There are table settings to serve 8. Appliances are full-sized: dishwasher, microwave, oven, range top, & refrigerator with bottom freezer & ice maker. We don't have a large stand mixer or food processor, but we have a blender, a mini food chopper, an electric hand mixer, electric can opener & a coffee grinder.

. . . . FOR YOUR ENJOYMENT. The #114 lanai has a chest of snorkeling equipment for your use – masks, snorkels & fins. The living room has cookbooks, Hawaiian books, games & classic Hawaii movies.

There's also an “Insiders Guide to Maui” by Art Chester on Gogobot: gogobot (dot) com/user/art-chester/passport/maui-hawaii.

About The Owner

We live in Southeast Michigan and have roots in Southern California and the New York City area. Now we are mostly retired; previously, Art was a research lab director (see ArtChester.net) and Nola worked at General Motors. Our neighbors in Malibu had been coming to Honokeana Cove for many years and they persuaded us to give it a try. We loved it immediately! Nicer and more personal than the big resort hotels where we used to vacation. Instead of a mile walk from the parking lot and a mile walk down the hall to your room, at the Cove we can walk off our lanai and we’re “right there” – into the swimming pool, or into the ocean. And swimming with those giant turtles is a unique, almost spiritual experience. We are happy to be able to share this special place with you! Art and Nola Chester

Why The Owner chose West Maui

We love the Napili area for its low-rise, “Old Hawaii” feeling, and we love Honokeana Cove for its small size, its friendliness, and its superbly landscaped grounds. When Unit 114 became available, we immediately wanted to buy it. Why? Because it’s on the ground floor, you can use your lanai as your “front door”, so you’re not always running up and down stairs. Because it’s centrally located, facing West, with a completely unobstructed view of lawn, pool, Cove and sunsets. And because it’s in the center building, which gets sun and afternoon breezes. We update appliances or furniture almost every year. You will find the condo crisp and clean, with sparkling tile and stone, plus Hawaiian fabrics and prints. There's a big ceramic turtle on the wall of our lanai, in honor of the even bigger ones that live in the Cove.

What makes this condo unique

Napili is a great location when visiting Maui, the most beautifully varied of all the Hawaiian islands. It’s a 7 minute drive to the West Maui airport (JHM), or you can also fly in and out of the “big” airport in Kahului (OGG), 55 minutes away. Napili is a quiet location between the big resorts of Kaanapali and Kapalua. You can easily get to those places when you want to shop, play golf or tennis, or visit a special restaurant, but you don’t have to put up with their crowds the rest of the time. Honolua Bay, D T Fleming beach, and the uncrowded northwest coast are just minutes to the north. Lahaina Town, with its bustle and excitement, is just as close to the south.

In all of Napili, we believe that Honokeana Cove is the very best spot! It is a small gated compound of 38 low-rise units gathered around a private cove. The Cove has wonderful snorkeling, with tropical fish, coral gardens and plenty of giant Sea Turtles. Just outside the Cove, visible from your lanai, is one of West Maui’s top surfing spots, where you will see local surfers showing their skills. And if you want a sandy beach for variety, Napili Bay, one of Maui’s most beautiful, is just 5 minutes walk (¼ mile) to the north.

Reviewer Comments:

We stayed in #114. Everything you could possibly need was provided in the Unit including snorkeling items and boogie boards. Bed was iffy but we managed. The sofa bed was not good but most aren't. The owners of the unit have provided possible solutions but beds are beds and different for everyone. A huge wedding party had taken over most of the complex leaving not much options for others but we were there during Spring Break and that is risks of popular vacation times. The same thing happened when we were there 2 years ago in June. Property did not seem to be managed as well as it was on my last trip. Woke up every morning to left over party items on the grounds....not attractive in paradise. Tons of little kids so early times in the mornings but quiet by 10 pm so was doable. There were three in our party....three women. Bottom line is this complex with access to the turtles in the cove was wonderful. I've been here 4 times and still think it is the only place to stay and highly recommend Unit 114. If you have the chance, highly recommend Annabelle and Warren's Magic Show. A different activity from the usual attractions but worth every penny and I guarantee you will leave with your jaws hurting from laughter. Not your typical magic show. Make sure you eat at Aloha Plate....great food and good prices. If you eat at Bubba Gumps try the Iced Mai Tai...the best ever. Gave a 4 on overall satisfaction with our stay only because of the complex's non attention to printed rules but our unit itself was perfect. I know you will love it. Enjoy your trip.

Please give us a call next time to see if we are having any large groups in house at the time you would like to come. I sure hope we will see you again soon. Su
