                                                                Our stay at the Honua Kai 816 was fantastic! The room was very nice and clean, the bed was comfortable, nice shower and tub, full kitchen with everything you need, closet full of chairs, beach towels, coolers, and beach toys. The lanai was very nice, awesome to relax with the doors fully open to let the breeze in. The room keys were very convenient, they are waterproof wristbands so you never have to worry about losing them or ruining them. Gives you access to parking, your room, and the fitness center. The pools are awesome, there are a ton to choose from, very family friendly, water slide is fun, lots of hot tubs to choose from also. Beach right in front of the resort is really nice, we did lots of whale watching at sunset from the shore. We even saw dolphins. Jeremy and Megan were extremely accommodating. They were very fast to respond to emails with questions we had before we arrived. We received a text message right as our plane landed welcoming us and giving us instructions where to meet them and when. We met Megan in the lobby, she was very warm and welcoming. She showed us around the resort and our room and answered all of our questions. We loved our stay and we would definitely recommend this place to anyone.

                                                                Owner's Response:

We agree, they always try to be available for incoming guests and go above and beyond however they can. The team here at Hawaii Life Vacations is thrilled to hear you had such an awesome and full experience at Honua Kai. The resort amenities are definitely a great feature to this location with the hot tubs, water slides, etc. it’s great for the whole family. Whale watching at sunset sounds so beautiful. It’s such a treat to visit Maui during whale season, and how special you even saw dolphins from shore! We hope you had everything you needed for an exceptional experience and we greatly appreciate your recommendation. Mahalo for being such pleasant guests and we look forward to seeing you again on your next visit!

                                                                Honua Kai 816 is a nice 1 bedroom unit that works well for a couple. Big advantage is the resort it is part of and the amenities of pools, restaurants, proximity to the ocean, and miles of walkways. Beach chairs, towels, etc. a nice amenity. The major disadvantage is that from inside the unit you mainly see the roof of a Westin vacation club building with only limited views of the mountains and none of the ocean. We had the windows open and could hear a fair amount of highway noise which was disappointing. The unit is generally nice but the carpet is bubbly-must have gotten wet at some point and needs stretched. Also the rental management company provided only a tiny amount of shampoo and conditioner (like for one day) so plan to buy or bring your own. Facet in kitchen is leaking water when you use it and toilet paper holder in bathroom needs fixed. Other than that well maintained.

We are very happy to hear you enjoyed the resort, location, and amenities!

                                                                I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.

                                                                Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.

                                                                The unit was exactly as described, and the accommodations fit our needs to a tee! Honua Kai has a quiet feel to it, and didn't have that "busy" atmosphere compared to a hotel. If you're looking for a quiet getaway, this is the place for you.

                                                                Aloha! We are so pleased to hear you found your perfect spot for a vacation! It sounds like you had everything you needed for an enjoyable stay and you were able to experience some of the amenities associated with Honua Kai Resort! It's great you felt at home and this area did not have a "busy" hotel atmosphere for you. We hope you were able to have a nice balance of relaxing at home and also exploring some of the surrounding areas. Thank you so much for your excellent review and recommendation! We appreciate you being such pleasant guests and we look forward to seeing you again on your next visit!

                                                                Beautiful condo in fantastic resort

                                                                This 8th floor condo was tastefully decorated and modern. The bed was extremely comfortable as was the living room furniture. The kitchen was well stocked and modern - don't buy a case of water; there is a cold water dispenser in the refrigerator door.

                                                                The view from the deck is nice..not spectacular, - it's ocean view, not ocean front so that is to be expected. You get a decent ocean view and a view of the foothills behind the resort.

                                                                Easy access to and from the condo via one of two elevators that empty out into the lobby area.

                                                                The resort itself is beautiful and spotless. Multiple pools, a cafe, a "convenience store" of sorts (you can buy beer, liquor there, but at a substantially higher cost then away from the resort). The pools have waiter/waitress service and we never ran into an issue with lounge chairs.

                                                                There is also "Duke's" restaraunt which comes in handy for breakfast and lunch. They serve dinner as well but overall, you'd be better served to either make your own small meals - Duke's is not cheap, and eat dinner at area restaraunts.

                                                                The beach area is beautiful and spotless. You can see nearby islands and can snorkel the reef (only 10' from the shore) to see some interesting and colorful salt water fish. Snorkel rental is free for the first hour and $5 for a whole day from the booth alongside Duke's. Lounge/beach chairs were free and there is an attendant right by the pathway to the beach. Throw the guy a couple of dollars. He's out in the sun all day after all.

                                                                This condo and resort are A+, 10 out of 10. The other condos are anyone's guess, but you can't go wrong with this unit.

                                                                Kinderson S.

                                                                The rental property was fantastic! The grounds were beautiful and the staff at the resort were always friendly and helpful. Even though we did not meet anyone face to face Hawai‘i Life to check-in, the process was pretty seemless. The condo is set up perfectly you can make dinner or sit out on the balcony with your morning coffee! It was very clean and has everything you could need! Beach chairs, a little cooler, and umbrella were perfect for throwing in the back of the jeep while adventuring around the island! The condo had great views of the mountains and the ocean. We wish we could have stayed longer. My husband and I will definitely be back to visit, hopefully for a longer vacation!

                                                                This was a great option for clean & comfortable! We enjoyed breakfast on the lanai every morning and the room had all the necessities to make our own meals. The location was good for groceries, shops, nails and hair salon etc...close by. The view was not the greatest. We thought from the pictures we would be facing the middle of the resort where the pool is. We were instead facing outside and there was quite a bit of construction happening down below which didn't make for a very peaceful/quiet breakfast time. I'm sure when it's all done the new landscaping will look great.

                                                                Aloha! Thank you so much for your review and recommendation! We are very happy to hear you enjoyed your stay with us and the location of this home suited your needs. Enjoying breakfast on the lanai every morning sounds lovely, it can be very enjoyable to be able to make your own meals while on vacation. We do appreciate you comments about the pictures for this unit and will look into trying to remedy this for future guests. Although the construction interfered with your morning, we hope it did not take away from your experience too much and you were still able to have a relaxing stay. Mahalo for being such pleasant guests and we look forward to seeing you again on your next trip to Hawaii!
