Best studio location in Kaanapali's best resort! When Honua Kai was still just a blueprint, we had the choice of any unit in the development. We chose this one. On the 5th floor, it is high enough to provide views and ambience, but not so high that the resort experience gets diluted. We waited for the Konea tower so that we could get the layered view of courtyard, tiki torches, the classic thatched roofline of Duke's Beach House, and views of Molokai Channel and Lanai. The view is terrific during the day and stunning in the evening. We opted for the location on the north side so that the tropical sun is more filtered and nuanced in the afternoon. Of course, the interior location means trade winds are gentle and you enjoy the sounds of lapping waves and chirping birds instead of the highway sounds more prevalent with exterior units.

The condo itself is perfect. The bed is super-comfortable and is positioned to capture a direct wake-up ocean view. The view gets even better while enjoying a meal or drinks on the lanai (balcony). The kitchen is spacious and fully equipped with high-end appliances, dishes, and cooking utensils. We even have BBQ utensils so that you can cook up your favorite steak or seafood using the resort BBQs. The sitting area is very comfortable with a sofa that folds out into a bed. We also provide a Pak 'n Play for little keikis. Of course, the unit comes with a washer/dryer and laundry detergent. You'll also find a couple of boogie boards, two beach chairs, and an umbrella. The bath has a full-size tub for soaking, a shower, and a vanity area with a make-up mirror and blow dryer.

Honua Kai is top-rated for good reason. It is the first new whole-ownership beachfront property built on Kaanapali in 20 years and has all the expected features of a luxury resort. Besides the beach, enjoy an elaborate kiddie pool complex with a 40-ft slide and lazy river, a separate adult pool, fine dining at famous Duke's on-site restaurant, organic deli selections at Aina Gourmet, on-site BBQs, work-out facilities, the luxurious 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!

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!

Car: Recommended

With Kaanapali Beach only steps away, we love to set up our Tommy Bahama beach chairs and umbrella and spend the afternoon watching for breaching whales while enjoying picture-perfect sunsets. A hidden gem is the Kaanapali Beachwalk, a boardwalk which originates in front of Honua Kai and stretches for over two miles along Kaanapali past Black Rock and the other resorts to the south. A great diversion for walkers is on the mauka (mountain) side where the former pineapple fields are now planted with coffee and stretch up to the West Maui Forest Reserve. We also love an occasional drive on the narrow road that leads around the backside of West Maui. We always stop at the bright green Julia's Banana Bread in Kahakuloa for a tasty treat. Remember that this drive is on 'island time' and is best enjoyed at a leisurely pace. The backside of West Maui also has some great hikes through tropical forests. If you park for a side excursion, be sure to leave your car unlocked and a window cracked so the locals know not to be curious. Ok, last tip and then a recommendation. While on island, we try to make multiple stops for shave ice in Lahaina at Local Boys. The shop is right across from the famous banyan tree and, with Roselani ice cream in the bottom and flavored ice heaped high, the shave ice treat is ONOLICIOUS! With so much to do on Maui, we recommend that you read 'Maui Revealed.' It is the best guidebook that we have found for both well-traveled and little-known attractions on Maui. So much to do, so little time. Or, just indulge yourself and kick back at our beautiful Honua Kai resort! It's all good!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: 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!

Why the Owner Chose Lahaina, HI, USA:
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!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
As mentioned, we selected this unit because it provides the best combination of setting and comfort. Most important was an interior location that feels like it's in a different world. Our entire view is of the resort and the ocean. The interior setting protects us from wind gusts, and the only sights and sounds are of the resort and the ocean beyond. The Konea tower is nicely oriented to take in the island of Lanai and our location in the tower protects us from the direct summer afternoon sun. Inside, the unit is very conveniently located right across from the elevator for quick access to the lobby and underground parking.
