About Jill

Aloha, we are Terry and Jill, we are Realtors and we have been coming to Hawaii since the 1980's. We used to go to Waikiki but we find that West Maui in general and the Honua Kai Resort in particular take the Hawaiian experience to a whole new level! Jill has had a love for the culture since she starting Polynesian dancing at 9 years of age and later became a professional dancer here in Canada. Although she doesn’t dance anymore she still judges the competitions.

We love living in Vancouver B.C. but this place is exactly what we dreamed about in a 'home away from home'.

Jill purchased this condo in 2014

Why Jill chose Kaanapali

As Realtors we believe that it is all about location. (cliched but true) We scouted out several areas in Maui but found that the combination of easy access from the airport, beach front access, proximity to shopping, Whaler's Village and Lahaina made the location ideal. When you add in all that the Honua Kai Resort has to offer is was a 'no brainer'.

When we purchased our first unit in 2011 we knew we would love Honua Kai. With our three kids this one bedroom and den provides even greater flexibility.

What makes this condo unique

The extra Den is a lifesaver when you have kids or are traveling with friends.Just close the french doors and the den serves as a second bedroom with it's closet,chest of drawers and HD TV.

We love gourmet cooking and we find that having a fully stocked kitchen with everything from the salad spinner to the martini shaker was ideal for us. When we land at OGG we grab the rental car and then drive 1 block to Costco and load up. In the afternoon we will relax by the pool and then usually hit Duke's for Happy Hour to have a cocktail and an appie and listen to a little live Hawaiian music. We follow that up with some time on our lanai before either firing up the stove or heading to the bar-be-cue areas that feature many Viking Grills.If dining out is the plan we take a stroll down the boardwalk to one of many restaurants along the way or head into Lahaina. The boardwalk that separates the Honua Kai from the beach also comes in handy in the morning. We like to grab a coffee at Aina Market and take a leisurely stroll towards Black Rock and Whaler's Village. For those that love to run or jog the boardwalk is a scenic treat.

Amazing hosts

  • 5 of 5

We had a really great time staying here. The condo is very well appointed with lots of extras from coolers and beach chairs to snorkelling gear for the whole family. The hosts were always available by text for whatever question you had for them.

We really enjoyed staying here and we hope to be back soon.

Amazing Condo!

  • 5 of 5

This unit is excellent and exceeded our expectations. We have a family of 4, two boys age 7 and 10. The extra den bedroom was perfect for the kids. The unit had beach chairs, boogie boards, cooler, and beach toys. Everything was clean and in great condition. The unit was a great size for a family. The balcony is huge and you can see partial views of the ocean. We have stayed in this tower and facing the little park twice now. It is very quiet and enjoyable on this side.

We love this area and having the resort type amenities, all while staying in a full condo with a kitchen. The beach at the resort is excellent and great for kids. There are lots of food options super close by without having to go to pricier restaurants for dinner. They expanded the gym size since the last time we had been to Honau Kai, so that was a great plus.

Jill, the owner, was excellent to work with and made the experience very easy. I would HIGHLY recommend this place. We will be booking again with Jill for our stay next year. Thank you!!!

Best place to stay on Maui!!

  • 5 of 5

Jill and Terry's unit at Honua Kai was the perfect place for our Kaanapali beach vacation. The unit is impeccably well maintained and was spotless on our arrival. They provide everything you could every need or want in the kitchen to the sheets and towels and the biggest bonus is the beach supplies - chairs, umbrella, boogie boards, cooler and snorkel gear.

Honua Kai is a wonderful facility. We took full advantage of the pools, beach, Dukes restaurant on site (A+). We cannot wait for our next Maui vacation and would absolutely stay at Jill and Terry's unit again.

Honua Kai Stay

  • 5 of 5

Reviews helped me determine the resort and unit that we ended up going with during our stay on Maui in May, so I want to add my experience in hopes it will help you!

First, the resort: I have never stayed at Honua Kai and I'm so thrilled we chose this resort. We were in the Konea tower. We have a 10 year old girl and 8 year old boy, and were traveling with another family with a 10 year old girl. There were more than 5 pools, a few hot tubs, water slide, lazy river, toddler wading area that we all truly enjoyed. The kids can swim all day, while parents can relax on an abundant amount of lounge chairs or cabanas. Dukes bar and restaurant is great for cocktails and food, and they deliver in the pool area during certain hours. The grounds are beautiful. There is a gym - I admittedly didn't even go inside the entire week, but I heard it was decent. There is a nice little general market/coffee shop in the lobby area that sells more than the average essentials - it is quite pricey, so I wouldn't recommend doing any lengthy shopping there, the Safeway is located in the town of Lahaina just a short distance away., and there is another market across the street from the resort on the side entrance area.

The beach walkway will take you down quite a ways past the other resorts, and is a great walk any time of day. The beach for the resort is a very nice beach to sit and relax or have the kids play. The water is nice to wade in and splash, but only for a few feet, then it gets super rocky and can hurt. There are a number of other beaches in the area that are great and good for snorkeling.

The unit: we opted for this 1 bedroom plus den, which gave parents and kids a room. It was so spacious and perfect for our family. The lanai goes from the master bedroom to the living room, and is big enough for eating or just sitting watching the sunset. It overlooks the side with a park that isn't busy, so it is very private. This unit was even better than the photos and was truly perfect for the week. The bathroom is huge, with a full shower and tub, with enough room for an entire family to get ready at the same time. The kitchen is perfect for cooking whatever you want. There were a number of pool/beach toys and a cooler. And the washer/dryer combo was handy. Jill and Terry are so great to work with and made sure we were good throughout our stay. I'd HIGHLY recommend Honoa Kai and this unit!

Gorgeous property with amazing accomodations

  • 5 of 5

The Honua Kai property is gorgeous. It really does feel like paradise. From the cleanliness of the complex to the decor and and lush gardens around the property - everything was perfect during our stay. The unit we stayed in was immaculate. Fully stocked with everything we would need during our stay - all we had to bring were our clothes, toiletries and food. We shopped at Costco before we checked into the unit and the bellmen at the resort were extremely helpful with unloading our car and bringing all the food and luggage to the unit for us. There is also a grocery store and shopping complex across the street from the resort which was great for all the smaller non-bulk items that we needed to buy.

The unit comfortably accomodates 6 people (with two sleeping on the pull out sofa). The large lanai overlooking the park and partial ocean view was the perfect spot to unwind and relax after a long day out and about. It was much quieter than the lanais which face the pools and there was no distraction from the construction going on the back side of the property. The fully equipped kitchen, washer and dryer were also an added bonus.

There are also a few grill stations on the property which were perfect for the nights we didn't want to go out for dinner. Although we didn't use any of these during our stay, the unit was also supplied with beach chairs, coolers, beach umbrella, boogie boards, sand toys and snorkel gear which can be super convenient for traveling families with small children.

Working with Jill (the host) was a great pleasure. Jill was always in touch with us starting from the booking process all thru the end of our stay. From the reminders, confirmations and check lists that she sent us before our trip to the last minute changes she was able to accomodate us with, Jill was an amazing host. Although this was not our first time on Maui, we plan on returning again next year and hope to stay in this unit again.

Fantastic Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We spent 10 nights at Jill and Terry's unit at the Honua Kai and had a wonderful time. We had 3 adults and 2 children, the unit easily can sleep 6 with the den acting much like a second bedroom. Lots of space inside and the Honua Kai has some of the biggest lanais on Maui. The unit is fully stocked - beach chairs, snorkel gear, boogie boards, coolers, etc. We also enjoyed the in suite laundry option. Wifi was good, as was the TV (cable, Netflix etc.). The Honua Kai itself is in a great location, right on the boardwalk to black rock. The beach is great and it is an easy jumping point to touring around the island. The pools are fun, they were never too crowded. The area can be windy at times though. Jill and Terry were awesome to deal with - overall, we'd highly recommend staying with them.
