Comfortable, richly appointed one-bedroom condo at the newly built Honua Kai on world-famous Kaanapali Beach. 5th floor views are above the palm trees and extend across the resort-style pool to the ocean and beyond to Molokai. Open the floor-to-ceiling glass doors to the large lanai and enjoy the seamless indoor-outdoor island experience.

Honua Kai is a perennial favorite for good reason. It is the first new whole ownership beachfront resort built on Kaanapali in 20 years and has all the goodies. Besides the beach, enjoy an elaborate kiddie pool complex with 40-ft slide, a separate adult pool, fine dining at famous Duke's on-site restaurant, organic deli selections at Aina Gourmet, work-out facilities, the beautiful Ho'ola Spa, underground parking and more. By the way, Duke's was just named as one of America's top 100 places to dine al fresco!

Inside, the condo features a beautiful granite kitchen with stainless appliances, a spacious bath, fine furnishings and appointments--even a washer/dryer. In the words of one guest, the plush bed provided 'my best sleep in 20 years!'

Honua Kai is conveniently located within a 5 minute drive to Lahaina and a 10 minute drive to Kapalua. Relaxing at the beach, snorkeling, diving, surfing, hiking, golf, shopping--all you need for your Hawaiian vacation is just minutes away. Or, be rejuvenated by never leaving the resort -- it's all good!

Our rates are very competitive and we offer great deals for last minute bookings. Mahalo!

About Barbara

We have been visiting Maui for years. In fact, my husband worked his way through college by spending extended summers managing employees on the local Maui Land & Pine pineapple plantation in Napili. The site of the Honua Kai resort was previously one of his pineapple fields-no wonder it's such a sweet place!

Barbara purchased this condo in 2012

Why Barbara chose West Maui

Given our affinity and connection with West Maui, we were thrilled to hear of the conceptual Honua Kai. As the first new whole-ownership resort on Kaanapali in decades, we loved the idea of a 5-star resort on the quiet end of Kaanapali near Napili and Kapalua. We've watched it rise from an old pineapple field to a beautiful resort and couldn't be happier!

What makes this condo unique

As the first of our three units at Honua Kai, this one-bedroom will always be our sentimental favorite. The 5th floor views stretch from the beautiful Molokai Channel on the makai ('towards the ocean') side to the coffee fields, rainbows, and mountains of West Maui on the mauka ('towards the mountains') side. We enjoy the morning sun as we eat breakfast on the spacious lanai. Late afternoon on the lanai brings rainbows as the sun sets and evenings are tranquil and relaxing.


Children's pool has 40 foot slide, lazy river, sandy beach and a grotto behind the waterfall. The Kaanapali Boardwalk stretches from Honua Kai along the beach to Black Rock and makes a wonderful moonlight walk.

A wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, almost 2 year old and myself spent a week here and the location, resort, and the condo itself couldn't have been more perfect for us. Plenty of space, well-stocked, and beautiful!

I will say Honua Kai was amazing for families with kids, but also had a lot to offer for adults only. We took advantage of the pool service and drinks that was provided by Duke's, and had fun trying the different pools. This unit is in the Hokulani tower, which I preferred over the other (Konea tower). We started each morning with a delicious cup of coffee in the Aina cafe, located right downstairs, and then headed to the main pool or the beach right out front. Having a toddler, we loved being able to go from pool to beach and back quickly and easily.

Barbara was wonderful and quick to reply during the booking process. We would absolutely stay here again!!

Excellent stay

This was our second time in this place and it was still great. The owner Babara is great with all her communication. We also loved the fact that it came with chairs and boogie boards. Beautiful property!

The local manager Michelle was fantastic to work with. The owner was also very accommodating to deal with

The unit is on North Kaanapali Beach. It had beach towels, beach chairs, boogie boards. Very nice unit. Would not hesitate to recommend to friends. We will definitely stay here again on our next trip to paradise.

I want to go back!

  • 5 of 5

My family spent 3 nights in this beautiful condo and loved it! We booked last minute and ended up spending one night in a resort-owned unit before moving to this one and were thrilled to see all of the extra touches that the owners had put into their suite. My sons (ages 13 and 11) were especially thrilled with the boogie boards and we loved having the beach chairs, umbrella and cooler available as well. The owner was extremely responsive and friendly with every interaction and the on-site property manager was a great resource. The unit has a partial ocean view from the lanai, which was a wonderful place to enjoy coffee and a book in the morning.

The beds (including the pull-out couch) were very comfortable, the kitchen was well-stocked with cooking utensils, etc. and bathroom was spa-worthy!

Location-wise, the resort is perfectly situated. We really enjoyed all of the pools, and the beach in front of the resort was lovely. I can't wait to go back!

Awesome Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My little family and I spent a week at the Honua Kai in the 1 Bedroom unit and we loved every minute of our stay. We have a three year old and she had a blast, I was also 33 weeks pregant. The unit already had beach chairs, beach towels, life jackets, sand toys, and so much more, already stocked. Having all of this made our stay so much easier with a toddler.

The unit is beautiful and conveniently located for easy garage access and access to the pools and beaches. Dukes is also right on the property, so when we arrived in Maui later than planned, it made for a great dinner on our first night in Honua Kai.

My daughter also loved the pools, which are incredibly (little) kid friendly. Honua Kai was perfect for our family and allowed us to have the relaxing and fun family vacation we were looking for. Thank you Barbara!

Great place, great host!

  • 5 of 5

Can't say enough about our vacation in Maui at this unit in the Honua Kai complex. We had a great time and appreciated how well situated and equipped the condo was, and how prompt and responsive our interaction with the owner was. Also appreciated her flexibility with a late check-out which gave us an extra couple of hours to enjoy Maui! We would definitely return - thanks to our great host for a relaxing and beautiful place to stay!
