About the property

studio, 1 Bathroom Sleeps 3

IMAGINE a Hawaiian vacation at Maui’s newest full ownership resort … where the sea, sand and gentle warm breezes welcome you.

KONEA is the newest tower, with a fire bowl water feature in the courtyard to enjoy the quiet of paradise and spectacular Maui sunsets.

All the amenities of a NEW unsurpassed LUXURIOUS HOTEL combined with the comfort, spaciousness and features of a private residence with FULLY EQUIPPED KITCHEN – no wonder HONUA KAI RESORT & SPA with its 38 acres of lush, landscaped grounds containing both tranquil areas and also an expansive aquatic playground is rated as one of the top beachfront luxury resorts in Maui.

From the moment you arrive, magnificent open lobbies with ocean views greet you and the lush landscaping with fragrant gardens and water features draw you further into a resort and spa with world class distinction.

Honua Kai has something for everyone…. a stunning infinity-edge pool with cabanas, aqua loungers, pool side beverage and food service, hot tubs, swim-under waterfalls, ‘lazy river’, quiet pool, and sandy bottom pool area with water slide, activity center with rentals, 10 outdoor Viking gas grills areas and on-site gourmet market and Duke's restaurant. … all of this and more and our unit is listed at competitive prices (typically far less than booking from the resort directly!)

**** Our unit is OCEAN-SIDE so is NOT effected by the Luana Development taking place on the mountainside of Honua Kai

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 and we love sharing our vacation home and aloha spirit with our lovely guests.

With warm aloha,

Maureen and Robert

Maureen and Robert Parker purchased this studio in 2013

Why Maureen and Robert Parker chose Lahaina

Honua Kai Resort & Spa, on beautiful Ka’anapali Beach, is the newest full ownership oceanfront condominiums; guests enjoy all the amenities of a luxury resort plus have the convenience of a full gourmet kitchen with Bosch appliances, large lanai and in-room washers & dryers! With our unit, guests are booking directly from owners at more competitive prices than other similar resorts.

Maui is such an amazing place with enjoyable weather all year round (average temperature is between 75–85 F); Ka’anapali Beach with its beautiful five mile stretch of soft sand and crystal clear, gentle water. has less rain than most areas of Maui!

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 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 local markets or dine at Dukes onsite or other favorite restaurants and end the day in a hot tub or with an evening stroll along the ocean boardwalk or relaxing on the lanai. We are never without our camera to capture wonderful memories to sustain us until our return to Maui. It's easy to understand why Maui has been voted "Best Island in the U.S." by Condé Nast Travelers for more than 20 years!

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!

Wonderful place to spend our special day

  • 5 of 5

We were so fortunate to have found this vacation home to celebrate both my wife’s birthday and our anniversary. It was truly more beautiful than the photos show. Breakfast from the Lanai each morning was breathtaking. Maureen’s organization and input in advance made this the easiest and most enjoyable trip to Hawaii. We’ve stayed at the Honua Kai before but never treated so nicely by the owners. Absolutely nothing negative about this unit, owners or facilities. Maureen even called a couple days into our trip just to check in with us. Means a lot when the owner cares that much that we are have a pleasant experience. But it was much more than just pleasant. It was blissful, relaxing, comfortable, and extremely clean. From the beach chairs to the welcome gift, they didn’t forget a thing. Highly recommend and we will be back again. Thanks so much for sharing your home with us!!

The Perfect Condo

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were celebrating our 45th wedding anniversary and the Parker's condo was so perfect for us. The condo itself had everything we needed, including granite counters in the fully furnished kitchen, two sinks in the bathroom and private lanai. Beach chairs, beach towels, and a beach umbrella were provided. There's even a washer and dryer! Honua Kai is a great resort with Duke's restaurant located right there...order the Lava Flow drink, the best ever! The pools are very fun and a nice sandy beach perfect for swimming and snorkeling. If you are searching for a great condo, this one has everything you need. Just bring your swimsuit, shorts and a t-shirt and you'll be all set and very happy.

The perfect home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Maureen and Robert’s unit is stunning. It’s an amazing location and easy to get to. Our 5 night stay was excellent and would not have traded it for anything else! Unit was kept in an excellent condition and had everything we needed and even more! The beach is in the backyard of the property; perfect to watch the sunset every evening. We will definitely return for future visits. Thanks Maureen for checking in with us with this stay! She’s amazing and very thorough if you have any questions at all! Thank you!

The property was beautiful, the condo was clean, comfortable and fully stocked. My husband and I had an incredible 15th anniversary trip. We especially enjoyed the great location, proximity to beaches and snorkeling, and sunsets— just a short walk away. The beach chairs, umbrella and cooler bag were an example of the over and above amenities provided! Our vacation was truly heavenly. Thanks, Maureen, for being available, helpful and responsive. We really hope to come back very soon!!

Amazing Experience!

  • 5 of 5

What can I say, from before we even got to the property until the day after we left we were treated with nothing but hospitality and the amenities at the property were perfect!

We came on our honeymoon and felt like we were completely taken care of from the second we stepped foot in the door with a warm welcome package to the Parkers being available for any question we had and even calling me back within hours to help out. I woudl definitely come back here in the future, the condo was cute and had all the essentials we needed for the week!

Overall, it was an experience that will make an impression that will last a lifetime for us!
