This complex, which opened in 2010, is simply amazing and comprises 43 acres of manicured tropical landscaping. The Honua Kai has open air lobbies with ocean views, a fitness center with state of the art equipment, infinity pool with cabanas, aqua loungers and hot tubs, lazy river, a kids area pool with sand bottom, grotto and a water slide, all overlooking the back drop of the Ocean.

Many travelers have commented that the inner courtyard suites, while beautiful, have lanais that face each other, are close together and generally they feel that privacy is somewhat lacking.

Ho'ola Spa is now open in our Konea tower. From massage & special treatments plus the Himalayan Salt Spa room, it has it all.

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.

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.

Perfect spot for a perfect vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Staying at the Honua Kai in Maui was the perfect spot for the perfect vacation. The condo unit itself is beautiful and spacious, easily accommodating our family of 5. The full size kitchen is a HUGE bonus, great for enjoying breakfast, lunch or drinks out on the large furnished balcony, with views of the ocean and a park-like setting. (Although we did not use, the guests also have access to several BBQ grills on the property as well).

The resort itself has several beautiful pools to enjoy and is just steps from the ocean for a change of pace. The resort is also home of one of the best restauarants on the Kanapalli strip....Duke's Beachside Bar & Grill--an amazing outdoor restaurant with great food, live entertainment and Happy Hour... while enjoying spectacular views of the ocean and Maui sunsets.

The resort is on the Kanapalli strip, centrally located between Lahaina and Kapalua, which allows easy access to both great shops and restauarants as well as activities such as snorkeling and cliff diving either at Black Rock (just a short walk up the beach) or in Kapalua. The owners of the unit even provide all of the snorkeling gear and beach chairs needed for these great excursions!!

Most importantly, the owners are fantastic to deal with, from the booking process to check out, the communication is excellent and every detail is thought of and taken care of. We would definitely recommend this property to our family and friends....thanks Jill & Terry for sharing your home to make our vacation perfect!

Unit is immaculate

  • 5 of 5

Jill and Terry's unit is exactly how it looks in the pictures. The unit is immaculate. The kitchen had all the dishes and utensils we needed. There was a closet full of beach gear (although we didn't use it) and the lanai looked over a quiet park with a partial ocean view. Terry and Jill wee excellent to deal with and answered all our questions. The welcome binder they prepared contains all the information you will need during your stay and came in quite handy for us. The amenities at Honua Kai are fantastic, and while they did have an adults only pool, we found the "lazy river" pool to be enjoyable as well (we did not travel with children). We did find the pool with the slide to be more active wi children, but that is to be expected. If I am ever travelling to Maui again, I hope Jill and Terry still have this unit, as I would definitely stay again, and would recommend this unit, and Working with Terry and Jill to all my friends.

Konea 440 is AMAZING

  • 5 of 5

The BEST! My girlfriend and I just got the pleasure of being pampered in Konea 440! Needing a break from life we booked a quick trip over to Maui and settled right into this beautiful condo, 2 spacious bedrooms and HUGE bathroom! The lanai is awesome with an ocean view! Jill and Terry were excellent to deal with and we loved the welcome book when we arrived sparing no details on the condo, dining and Maui! Thank you for allowing us into your home we will definitely be back.

Great location and condo - Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our 10 day trip to Maui! The condo was wonderful and beautiful. It was clean and the den was great for our family of 4. The condo was quiet and very conveniently located. On the lanai, we enjoyed the view of the park and even a little ocean view. We appreciated the beach towels, boogie boards and other amenities. Jill and Terry were very easy to work with and were responsive to all our questions. We have no complaints. The resort itself was really clean and provided lots of easy pool and beach time for our family. Our kids loved all the different pools. Having the Times Supermarket right across the street was so convenient. It was truly paradise! I have no hesitation in recommending this condo.

Perfect Place!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first stay at Honua Kai and we will be back! What a wonderful condo, in a perfect location: close to the elevator (but not too close), on the quiet side of Konea Tower. It was fully stocked, immaculate, and fit our family of 4 perfectly. We enjoyed all of the beach amenities that were provided, and loved having Duke's on location. Jill and Terry were so attentive and made sure our vacation went off without a hitch. I would recommend renting from them in a heartbeat!
