"we spent the month of January, 2016, in unit 546, HOKULANI BUILDING at HONUA KAI CONDO RESORT. there were two of us, my husband and myself, for most of the month with a 5 day visit from my daughter and a 6 day visit from my husband's son. since i am a clean-nut, i can honestly report that this unit was in mint condition and obviously cleaned from top to bottom prior to our arrival. Michelle is the Manager/Contact on the Island and represents the owner who lives on the "mainland." i cannot sing the praises of michelle highly enough. we had the unit cleaned 3 times during the month and michelle took care of all the details involved in having that done. she is competent, capable and attentive. i can't imagine the owner doing a better job. michelle took care of any and all concerns in a very responsible and timely fashion (and there weren't that many but stilll, was great to know we had someone we could depend on). the unit itself is lovely. the lanai (balcony) is the perfect size with a lovely dining table and 4 chairs. there are two additional chairs with footstools for relaxing. and, relax we did. the view is fabulous and since we were there during whale watching season, the amazing ocean view afforded us fabulous views of breaching whales. from the other end of the balcony, we looked out at the beginnings of the mountains and were fortunate enough , one morning, to have a view of the most vibrant rainbow we've ever seen. the bedrooms are comfortable, the closets adequate (i did have to buy more hangers but that's because i over-packed), the bathrooms are large with a glass enclosed shower and a separate soaking tub. there are double sinks and marble counters and toilet is in a small enclosed area with a door to create privacy. i loved having a supermarket, pharmacy and fresh fish market nearby. came in handy for the meals we chose to have "at home." i would have preferred a gas stove but it didn't take that long for me to get used to electric. the resort amenities are fabulous-from the 4 pools to the gym to the walkable grounds with all the paths, foliag, flowers and easily accessible beach. don't miss Duke's Beach House, the restaurant at the foot of resort by the beach. good food, good service and a great place to watch the sun set while sipping a Margarita. to sum it up, we can't wait to return and hope Unit 546 is available for our next visit to paradise!"
