About Mimi

Our family currently resides in the SF bay area.

Mimi purchased this condo in 2013

Why Mimi chose Lahaina

We have lived and have traveled all over the world for many years. There is nothing quite like the Hawaiian islands, and within Hawaii we just fell in love with Maui as it has the perfect blend of natural beauty, excitement, and amenities.

We stayed at the Honua Kai for just one week in early 2013 and loved it so much that we decided to buy this unit right then and there. The resort is by far the newest beachfront property on Kanaapali and among the newest in all of Maui. We believe it is the perfect luxurious and yet laid back family vacation spot in paradise, offering fully equipped spacious condos with full four-star resort amenities.

What makes this condo unique

- Ground floor unit with spacious lanai and own private lawn

- Special tropical landscaping around lawn provide added privacy

- Short stroll down to the beach

- Similarly easy access to pools, Koi pond for morning fish feedings (great fun for kids), BBQ areas, etc

Guestbook comments from the owner

My family and I had a fantastic time. Our only complaint was that we should have stayed longer!

The unit was perfect for our family. Well stocked with everything we needed. My 19month toddler loved being able to run out the lanai and onto the boardwalk without taking the elevator. No complaints whatsoever.

Fantastic apartment, better than expected and no surprises. 😄

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed in this beautiful apartment and loved every minute of it. The owner Mimi communicated with us promptly and gave us uptodate info re the landscaping going on next door at the Westin, so “ no surprises”, and we had all the info we needed like local supermarkets and restaurants . The manager Monty met us on arrival and explained everything for us. The ground floor courtyard had morning and afternoon sun, the appliances were top of the range, the beds so comfy and the bedrooms and both bathrooms are huge with shower and a bath in each, great for our teenagers. It was in a great location, steps from a beautiful beach, and across the road from a hire car place for us to further explore Maui.The pools in the resort are lovely and we enjoyed our afternoon Mai Tai cocktails with the pool service. Thank you for a wonderful place to stay, I got the thumbs up from my family for choosing this apartment.

The condo was perfect for our family vacation. We traveled with our family of four plus my mother. The unit is very spacious and gave us pleanty of space to spread out. The lanai was great for morning coffee, meals and gathering at night playing a game of cards with the kids. The unit is equipt with everything you need and is in a great location. The owner Mimi and the manager Monty were very accommodating and responsive. The resort is great for kids and the pool area is nicely spread out. We can't wait to visit again!!

Property was very spacious and comfortable.

  • 4 of 5

We were very happy with the condominium and the resort location. Unfortunately, we arrived just before a major storm hit Maui and caused island wide power outages and flooding. Half of our vacation was rainy/cloudy but we sure enjoyed the last few days of sunshine.

This condominium was very nice, clean and extremely accommodating. There is a well appointed kitchen for cooking and a stack-able laundry unit and comfortable bedding. We noticed there is an entire closet with beach related chairs/umbrellas/toys etc for guests' enjoyment. Very nice for families with children. The rooms are large, and the condo has a very open feel to it. The bathrooms are huge with double sinks, separate tubs and shower area. The location on the west coast of the island is a perfect spot and close to many additional beaches and activities. The resort itself is very nice and well maintained. A concierge is available daily to help with any island activities you want to do. There are 3 pools available to guests and of course the beach is right there. We were very happy with this property and would recommend it. Due to weather constraints and power loss (very unusual) I can't give my vacation the full amount of stars. No fault of the rental property, of course.

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay so much! The property was so spacious and we had everything we needed in the kitchen to prepare food. If we didn't want to cook, Duke's was such a short walk and the food was divine! We loved the beautiful pools! We rented snorkel gear from Mel at Ukelele's dive shop right by the Honua Kai. The best area to see turtles and beautiful fish was right off the beach where we stayed! The ground floor was intimate and quiet with a beautiful garden and flowers right on the grounds in the patio area. We would love to go back and stay there again.

Girls Trip!

  • 5 of 5

We all loved our stay! Location was great for the activities we were planning. Condo was clean and modern, beds were comfy, kitchen was fully stocked, there's a closet full of beach gear/ chairs, the list goes on and on! Staff was friendly and accommodating. My favorite part of the condo was the lanai.. we enjoyed our meals outside and felt safe in the semi secluded lawn. For those who wanted to stay at a hotel and others at a house, this was best of both worlds! So happy we chose this property!

Clean, modern, convenient, and very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have been more pleased with the accommodations. Monty met us as we arrived at the property and got us settled. From there we were on our own. Valet parking is a free service, and the bellmen were always there to help us with luggage, shopping bags, groceries, etc. We were close to shopping, restaurants, etc. We went to a nearby mall where there was a Safeway grocery store, and in the mall met Adam Jones, an activities coordinator. He arranged our tours and all other activities like luau, sunset cruise, road to Hana tour, etc. Mimi, the owner of the condo, was very communicative and as sweet as could be.
