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.

Annie's Place at the Keawakapu Condos Kihei

  • 4 of 5

We had an enjoyable stay at Annie's Place which is a two bedroom one bath condo on the second floor in front and ground floor in the back overlooking lawn and tropical vegetation and ocean view to the west for great sunset viewing. The walk was short down an easy hill to the 5 Palms / Mana Kai Resort and great beach and snorkeling. Snorkeling gear, paddle boards and kayaks are available for rent at the Mana Kai Resort. The unit was very clean and had good ventilation with the windows and doors open and ceiling fans operating. I would stay here again if I had the need for a two bedroom unit which are hard to find at a good rental rate.

Owner's Response: Alohai Bill, Thank you for your nice words. I was wondering what I could do to earn 5 stars from you? This was my first non 5 star review and it made me kinda sad, as my business depends on my great reviews and I work so hard to earn 5 stars. You were right, for the money this is a great deal and I work so hard at keeping our home uber super clean and and new. If you really believe I deserve 4 stars, please let me know what I can do to earn 5. If you think I deserve 5 stars, I would love to hear. Thank you for taking the time to write this review. Mahalo, Susie

Another Fabulous Stay!

  • 5 of 5

On our last trip to Maui, we stayed at Susan and Rick's Honu Place next door. This year, we had the pleasure of being next door neighbors with Susan and Rick and stayed at Annie's Place, which was equally enjoyable. The highlight of staying here is not only access to our favorite side of the island and our favorite beach, but also all the details that make us feel so at home and so well taken care of. As a cook, it's wonderful to have such a well stocked and thoughtfully organized kitchen. The unit is beautifully maintained and remodeled and the beds are luxurious. Our love for this property keeps growing. We will definitely be back. Mahalo, Susan and Rick!

Can't imagine a more perfect rental!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing find! Great location, just a short walk across the road to the beach. Rick and Susie's units are beautifully remodeled, immaculately clean, comfortable beds, and well-stocked kitchen with any appliance one could possibly need. A very reasonable place to stay in a beautiful area of Maui. Great restaurants and beaches right across the street. Easy walk to boat ramp for snorkeling or whale watching adventures. The owners offer so much great information about the local area. Highly recommend!
