About the property

Brand New 2br 806 Sq Ft Condo,4 Minute Walk To Beaches~Ocean And Haleakala View

Be one of the FIRST to enjoy our GORGEOUS OCEAN VIEW, from our NEWLY RENOVATED, NEWLY DECORATED, 2 Bedroom, 1 Bath Condo, just a 4 minute walk to the nicest Beach on Maui, Keawakapu! After renovating Honu Place VRBO Listing #402988, 2 years ago, we were inspired to renovated the unit right next door, Annie's place, #208. this unit has even a better view!Take a nap or read a book looking out on lawn, woods, and ocean as the living room double patio doors open onto the lanai and lawn.

The condo is appointed comfortably and tastefully with a porcelain floor throughout, granite counters in both the kitchen and bathrooms, and local artists work adorn the walls. Beautiful Maple Cabinets and solid pine interior doors were used to keep the unit 'off-gas' free, along with other green products to furnish and renovate our condo. New sound proof windows, and pine extra thick 4 panel interiors doors provide a quiet environment.


Enjoy cooking on a brand new stainless steel electric range, preparing your vegetables on granite counters with plenty of light, and clean up is so easy with the ultra quiet Bosch dishwasher. You will find just about everything you need whether you want to cook or just go out, as the area is filled with many wonderful restaurants.


Play some cards on the Hawaiiana Ratan Dining Set, browse through our DVD library and select a Blu-Ray, look through the many HDTV cable stations, or watch Free Prime Time On Demand to enjoy on the 50' LED Samsung TV. And any of these activities will feel like you are outdoors sitting next to our new patio sliding doors among the tropical birds and plants..


You will find an Eastern King Mattress for your comfort.

Before falling asleep, watch the 32' LED Samsung TV with HDTV cable, or you can access your Netflix or Hulu accounts, along with access to Youtube, Pandora, and more.


You will find an antique Maple bed set from 1953. This is originally owned by Annie's family, and kindly left for our use. There is a Queen mattress to comfortably stretch out.


When you are not in a hurry to make that dinner reservation after beaching it, there is a comfortable new bathtub for your relaxation. Gorgeous Blue Granite Counters adorn your surroundings.


Keawakapu Beach is very much OLD HAWAII. Rent a kayak or go swimming across the street, or walk to the south along the beach for 3 miles passing a mile of private multi-million dollar homes, then stroll on a path at the ocean cliffs and beaches passing some of the nicest hotels on the island. Walk north to find Kamaole 1 Beach and fronting our building is a nature preserve and the Kihei Boat Launch where boats leave for snorkle tours and more. There are many shops and restaurants in Wailea and Kihei which are literally a few minutes in each direction. This area is also warmer and less rainy than other locations on Maui, and less windy than North Kihei.

Please note:

There is one flight of stairs to the front door although the lanai is on the ground floor at the lawn.

This is a NO SMOKING building, sorry we do not have an elevator or a pool.

About Susan Fraenkel-Cattell

Rick is in the computer industry, and Susie retired from Health Care Research when our 3rd child was born in 1991. Rick enjoys windsurfing, and both of us love walking the beaches, snorkeling, and the nature of Maui. With Rick still working, we can't spend all of our time on Maui, so we will be renting out HonuPlace approximately 6-8 months a year. We have now bought Annie's Place right next door so we have room for our kids and grandkids. Annie's place (this add) will be rented about 11 months a year.After a total demolition and renovation, we want to share with you Annie's place and of course, we still have Honu Place for rent as well VRBO Listing #402988

Susan Fraenkel-Cattell purchased this condo in 2013

Why Susan Fraenkel-Cattell chose Kihei

We have been traveling to the Hawaiian Islands for 32 years visiting Rick's parents living on Oahu. During this time we always visited the Keawakapu area of Maui, and it became our favorite place in the world. Finally, May 2011, we closed escrow, purchasing our Maui dream home, Honu Place! August 2011 we demolished the entire apartment to its bones. Susie has managed and coordinated the entire project creating a space that we think you will love as much as we do.

Now Fall 2013, we are demolishing Annie's Place as well, fully renovating it as well, and it is available for rent in February 2014. Please check out our reviews regarding Honuplace: VRBO Listing #402988

What makes this condo unique

This is a very unusual condo building for this area. It was built in the 70's to house the contractors building a very large resort up the hill. Only 16 units, twelve 2 bedroom, 2 one bedroom, and 2 studio apartments make up this complex. Because of its small intimate size and woodsy surroundings, it feels very private and secluded.It has a large lawn, woods, and a bamboo grove. The views are lovely with palms, mango, and a sweet ocean view above the trees creates old Hawaiiana. It is quiet, off the beaten path yet just minutes to many stores and restaurants, and the best part, just a 4 minute walk to the nicest beaches on Maui. Rick and I enjoy a walk daily either south, for a 6 mile round trip walk on the beaches, or to the north along the nature preserve and Kamaole Beach Park 1. Often we grab a cup of coffee at the lovely 5 Palms or Sorentos on the beach, or walk to the Four Seasons for one of their fresh fruit smoothies. Other days, we take our snorkels with us for a morning snorkel at Keawakapu or walk to Ulua for variety. Snorkeling is wonderful at these or many other beaches. When the waves are good, a little boogie boarding (supplied in unit) is great fun too. Besides some people who kite and windsurf in Kihei, it is only a 20 minute drive to Kanaha Bay, world renown windsurfing and kiting spot with nearby rentals. In the evening we enjoy the many bars and restaurants with good live music just a couple of minutes away.

Great condo close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

We loved being walking distance from Keawakapu Beach! And having beach chairs, umbrella and boogie boards made our beach days perfect for us adults (and our teenager and tween). The condo had everything we needed -- a nicely remodeled kitchen, bright and clean rooms, and comfy beds. And the lanai was great for star gazing at night, having coffee in the morning, and taking in the afternoon breeze.

Attention to detail, convenient

  • 5 of 5

This condo was very clean and very well-stocked...lots of utensils and beach supplies. Comfortable beds. Nicely furnished. Very helpful tourist tips. Owner is a prompt and good communicator. Condo lanai is on the ground floor overlooking very well-tended landscaping and a view of the ocean. Fairly short walk to Keawakapu Beach which is somewhat less crowded than nearby Kamaole Beaches and which is good for swimming and walking. There is a nice (charcoal) barbecue area. Good choice.

An Amazing Place To Stay!

  • 5 of 5

This condo had everything we needed at an affordable price! Everything we wanted to do on Maui was accessible from Kihei and the condo itself was inviting, clean, and stocked with all the necessities. Thanks for a great week!

Beautifully updated condo in small complex

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have enjoyed our stay more at this spotlessly clean, wonderful condo. It has been recently renovated and the finishes and appliances are luxurious. The view from the lanai is pristine with no other structures visible and the ocean in the distance. The bedrooms were spacious with ceiling fans and comfortable beds. Even the televisions were ultra hi-def. We were scuba diving on this trip so the ground level lanai with a hose was very convenient to do a once over hose off and there was a drying rack to hang clothes and wetsuits. I am very sensitive to noise and was surprised at how quiet it was there. Even though there was a unit above us I never heard footsteps or other noise once during our 8 day stay. Susie has thought of every need, you would never get this from a hotel room. One of my favorite beaches is across the street by the Mana Kai within very easy walking distance. The location is at the extreme south part of Kihei leading into the affluent Wailea so you have less crowds. We would definitely stay here again.

This property is in a wonderful location on the south side and accommodations were great!

  • 5 of 5

Susan was a lovely correspondent leading up to our stay and following up after we checked out. The property is great and very accurate to the listing. The kitchen has great appliances to use including a new fridge and large dishwasher. We also made great use of the other kitchen applicants for home cooked meals when we didn’t want to eat out. This condo is offered at a very competitive price and we were able to make use of the beach that was a stone’s throw away. The neighbors were very quiet and respectful and everyone was friendly. If your looking for something simple and straight forward with the added benefit of a host who has everything figured out for their guests, then you should consider staying here!
