About Maureen and Robert Parker

Robert and Maureen live in Canada and feel really fortunate to have a place in paradise at Honua Kai Resort and Spa and to be able to connect with so many wonderful guests! Growing up, Rob’s family had vacation homes in Maui for over 30 years and his family moved to Maui for a year when Rob was 13 years old. Rob and his sister went to school at King Kamehameha in Lahaina that year. Robert now owns his own construction company and Maureen is a Registered Clinical Counsellor. After marrying, Rob and Maureen chose Maui as the perfect place to celebrate their honeymoon and later stayed at Honua Kai Resort and Spa twice with their children before purchasing from the developer in 2013. Honua Kai Resort and Spa really feels like coming home.

With warm aloha,

Maureen and Robert

Maureen and Robert Parker purchased this studio in 2013

Why Maureen and Robert Parker chose West Maui

Honua Kai Resort and Spa on Kaanapali Beach, Maui, has everything imaginable. Maui is such an amazing place with tropical great weather all year round (voted “Best Island” Conde Nast Traveler for 19 years) and Kaanapali Beach not only has less rain than other areas of Maui, but also a beautiful five mile stretch of soft sand and crystal clear, gentle water.

What makes this studio unique

Walking into Honua Kai Resort and Spa we feel the relaxed, aloha spirit of Hawaii. It’s a magical experience… we ease into the day with lattes or ice cream from A'ina market right in the resort and then either play at the pools, relax in the sun, go off on an adventure or find great shops to browse. We often end the day with a great home cooked feast using ingredients from Costco and local markets and end the day in a hot tub or with an evening stroll along the ocean boardwalk. We are never without our camera to capture wonderful memories to sustain us until our return to Maui.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We are nearing the end of our fabulous three week stay at Honua Kai Resort and Spa… somehow time seems different here in Maui…. there are many moments when time seems suspended, when one is lost in moments of pure joy, love and laughter and yet it seems like in a blink time has flown by, and only captured in a memory. The other morning I decided to ‘make the most’ of my morning walk and leave my camera in the condo so as to get a workout before starting my day. Hawaii has a way of teaching many lessons if one is open. Rob decided to join me this morning and humoured my need to walk briskly but by the time we reached Black Rock he had convinced me to leave the walking path and kick off our shoes and meander along the shoreline – the water was just cool enough to be refreshing as it gently caressed our ankles and invited us to enjoy the moment.



From years of boating, Rob has picked up the habit of always scanning the ocean and he suddenly spotted dolphins off shore. They were only about a block out and travelled along the edge with us, all the while jumping and spinning while we made our way along the beach. Like a pied piper, the spinning dolphins collected many followers along the way back till we finally reached Honua Kai and like the finale at the fireworks they exploded in unison jumping and spinning before heading off to Lanai. We headed off also but to Ãina for our morning latte, still spouting about our experience, when an outrigger guide shared that he saw the spinning dolphins from the water and from his viewpoint there were around 300 of them! Hawaii is teaching me to slow down, smell the plumeria flowers, take time to stroll along the water’s edge, and be open to the gifts that Maui offers.



We just purchased our brand new condo from the developer and really enjoyed spending quality time in our vacation home and can't wait to come back! We loved starting each day on our lanai looking out to the ocean nibbling on local pineapple, mango and apple bananas topped with yogurt and granola. We enjoyed the sun filled days at the pools or Kaanapali Beach and explored close-by sights like the blowhole and canopy topped jungle valleys within a half an hour drive! We are really excited about sharing our vacation home in paradise with wonderful guests and hearing about their wonderful experiences. Honua Kai Resort and Spa is a really magical place!

Anniversary Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I honeymooned in Maui 20 years ago and couldn't think of a better place to celebrate our anniversary. We've done some traveling over the years but have never stayed at a vacation rental property before. Maureen and Robert's condo was absolutely perfect for our getaway. I knew immediately after speaking with Maureen that we found our place! Honua Kai resort and the condo are both even more beautiful than the pictures, and the staff were so friendly and helpful. They have taken so much care and pride in making their condo the perfect place to stay. We were so thankful for the helpful information provided about the unit, the resort, maps, places of interest, as well as a completely stocked condo with everything you could possibly need. We used the boogie boards, beach chairs, beach umbrella, and cooler that they provided every day as we explored a different beach. We got to snorkel for the very first time at Kaanapali Beach (in front of the resort) which was amazing and still remains as my favorite beach. If you love to walk or run, the beachwalk is perfect for those early morning runs or romantic evening strolls. Duke's restaurant on site was an added bonus, with breakfast, lunch, happy hour and supper a few steps away if you didn't feel like driving or cooking. I truly can't say enough wonderful things about our entire stay. Too bad we can't squeeze our entire family into your condo for out next trip! Thank you Maureen, Robert and Michelle for everything. We have fallen in love with Maui all over again and definitely won't be waiting 20 years to come back!

Honua Kai - Konea 315 studio has everything you could wish for & more

  • 5 of 5

Stunning resort - now that we’ve stayed at Honua Kai it’s spoilt us to go anywhere else & booking from owners of Konea 315 means lots of insider tips – just like another review said, owners will seriously hook you up with info before you arrive and personally call to answers questions - great customer experience! The condo has a beautiful ocean view & so many extras that you just don't get when staying in a hotel or at other condos (beach chairs & umbrella, boogie boards, cooler… owners thought of everything!) Enjoyed the Konea “quiet only” pool – great for romantic getaways. The studio was huge (not a small hotel room) with full sized appliances and resort has lots of grills (fun to chat with other guests). Dukes Restaurant is on the resort - best fish dinner ever! The new resort wristband keys are so smart – slip on your wrist & forget about it till you need it to get into room or gym & no resort hoppers. We saw brand new pool cabanas being installed with comfy furniture (if you wanna catch the game TV coming soon in some cabanas). This place is a real find!

Beautiful property!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place! Everything in the condo is in pristine condition. So much attention is given to making this a carefree, relaxing experience. All of the amenities are top of the line. The condo is as luxurious as it is comfortable. All the little extras are here.

Maureen is just tremendously warm and attentive. She is easily accessible and very concerned that her guests enjoy their stay. There are directions and suggestions for where to go, what to do, and places to eat.

She even provides a lovely welcome basket with some practical and yummy treats!

The wristband keys are brilliant. Every resort would do well to adopt this type of key.

Lovely condo... lovely owners... lovely vacation!

Perfect for what we needed - a small piece of paradise

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Honua Kai Konea. The 9 days flew by very quickly. The studio condo is well appointed, spacious, lovely decor and well stocked with food essentials and beach equipment. It was a pleasure communicating with Maureen and Robert over our booking and we appreciated the gift basket and attention to detail. It is an immaculate resort with excellent facilities and friendly staff. The location was perfect for us - we could easily explore, stroll down to Whalers Village and pop across the road to the market. One of the daily highlights was walking to the beach within a few minutes of the condo, and swim with the fish and a turtle that would pass by before we had breakfast - not a bad life. We hope to return.

Paradise in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

What a great place! perfect size for the two of us, amenities were wonderful! Very clean and pristine inside and out. We loved the garden and ocean views from the balcony. The kitchen was great to manage the meals we chose to do on our own, with a full size fridge and most tools you would need. The only thing we missed was a coffee grinder as we like to "start from scratch!". Candice met us on our schedule to let us in and orient us to the technical aspects of the space and was conveniently available via text during the week. Maureen (the owner) also checked up to see that we were situated well for our week's stay. There are plenty of casual places to eat with in walking distance and Duke's for a "night out" as well as poolside drinks and pupus. The location is also convenient to other venues in Lahaina and Whaler's Village. The Beachwalk provided us an excellent daily walk to balance the relaxation time. Thanks Maureen for sharing such a wonderful place!

Owner's Response: Mahalo Moira, We are so happy to share our “Paradise in Paradise” with such amazing people like you! Glad you got your much needed break & enjoyed the view from our lanai & casual evenings at Dukes, the pool side service and other nearby restaurants. We agree the daily beach or boardwalk is the perfect way to savor the Maui experience. Keep in touch & we’ll look forward to your return visit – Maui has a great way of bringing balance into our hectic lives! With warm aloha, Maureen & Robert
