Can you get the beauty of Honua Kai's oceanview suites without giving up your privacy? Most Honua Kai suites look directly across at each other. If you want privacy, luxury and sweeping ocean views at a reasonable nightly rate, then Honua Kai Konea 634 is perfect for you and your party. Reserve now for 2014 and 2015.
HK Konea 634 is one of the finest and largest corner oceanview units in the beautiful new Honua Kai resort Konea Tower. Compared to suites in both towers, HKK 634 offers more value than any other. Why?: (1) amazing panoramic ocean views towards the Mahana and the Kaanapali Beach Club pink pyramid, (2) more light from more windows than any other 2BR/2BA, and (3) the best suite layout of any 2BR. The majority of the 632 Honua Kai suites look across at each other, and require you to step out to the lanai to see the ocean to one side. Not so HK Konea 634. You have multiple ocean views from indoors and out. That's why this 'Stack' of suites sold out first in the Konea tower. But because they cost less originally (before people realized how great the views would be), we can offer the suite at better values, especially by offering it direct from owner-to-guest.
If you're searching for something extraordinary, with sweeping 6th-floor views of the ocean, surrounding resorts, and the Maui Mountainside at a reasonable price, you've just found it. Photos are recent. Highlights include:
* Stunning oceanfront resort location with 270-degree ocean & Maui hillside views
* Corner suite with huge, 470 s.f. ocean-view lanais, triple the size of others at HK
* Glass 'Nana' doors to the lanai from living, dining, master, and kitchen...unique!
* More windows than any other 2BR in the resort, yet the most privacy
* Steps from the ocean, Duke's, hot tubs & three oceanfront pools
* New oceanfront Duke's Beach House Restaurant on our beach (serving morning-night)
* Gleaming new kitchen with Bosch stainless steel appliances
* New Bosch laundry en-suite
* (2) brand new baths with both glass showers AND tubs in each, double sinks, too
* Large great room with LCD TV's & Blue Ray DVD and windows on three walls
* Lovely designer porcelain tile floors carpeted bedrooms and living/dining room
* Expansive 470-sq.ft. lanai with al fresco dining for six
* Comfortable for up to six. Ideal for families or two couples.
This luxury condo has one of the best locations in the complex (this 'stack' of six suites was among the first to sell out in the 300+ unit tower). It is beautifully and professionally designed to help you relax and enjoy your Maui vacation. It is the perfect vacation choice for a romantic escape - or for the family trip of a lifetime. We love coming for the relaxation, ocean sounds, and superb snorkeling at four nearby sites (Honolua Bay, Black Rock, Napili Bay, and Kapalua Bay), not to mention the warm people and beautiful views.
Or enjoy your three oceanfront pools: (1) the formal lap pool in the courtyard of the Hoku Lani Tower, or the (2) family pool with water slide and sandy 'beach' and the (3) lazy river pool, both in front of the Konea tower. Then grab a scrumptious breakfast, lunch or dinner at our new, oceanront Duke's Beach House Restaurant overlooking gorgeous Maui sunsets.
Your condominium is attractively furnished, has a new kitchen, a large great room with a sofa/bed, dining for six, and a large private lanai (really two connected lanai's) featuring new patio furniture. Amenities include central air conditioning and three TVs, all with lots of great Hi-Definiton cable TV channels. WiFi on both the lanai and inside.
The Master bedroom suite also features a floor-to-ceiling wall of retractable windows with its own very large lanai and oceanview, like the great room. Its bathroom features a walk-in shower and separate tub with stone bathroom countertops.
Honua Kai is Maui's newest beachfront ultra-luxury resort with dining, shops, activities desk and beautiful grounds spanning three swimming pools, waterfalls, exotic flower gardens and rolling greens. Your accommodations exceed the typical HK suites, most of which do not have the sweeping views you are getting at the corner of the complex. Your Maui home away from home is bright and expansive (1,700 square feet, including the lanai).
It's an opulent, luxurious, oceanfront suite, but with a good measure of practicality (e.g., cook's kitchen, washer/dryer and enough sleeping capacity). This is a NON-smoking unit.
The Honua Kai (HK) resort is located at the northern end of golden Kaanapali Beach, considered one of the world's best, warmed by the Maui sun and overlooking the islands of Lanai and Molokai. HK is sited between the pink Kaanapali Beach Club pyramid and the sprawling Westin Time Share Resort.
Your unit has the coveted, corner view that also overlook the ocean and hillside. Our oceanfront restaurant, Duke's Beach House, is one of Maui's newest and best and is just steps away. The complex has a beautiful lobby with a gourmet Aina Marketplace for fresh fruit and food, and multiple walking paths for your pleasure.
Across the street is a shopping center including Times Supermarket, the 'Best Coffee in Maui' cafe, Pizza Paradiso, Subway, a video/DVD rental store, Soup Nutz's superb fresh soups, and the offices of Diane, Beth and Lorry at Kaanapali Beach Properties, the excellent folks who check you in and cater to your needs while on island. You are very close to Whaler's Village, the Lahaina Cannery Mall, Front Street, and many other attractions.
The view from your lanai includes both the islands of Lanai and Molokai, and spectacular humpback whales from December-April. The sites are ever-changing - with sailboats, cruise ships, snorkelers, sea turtles, and sunbathers.
Maui No Ka Oi means 'Maui is the best' - quite fitting for the beautiful vacation you will have in your Kaanapali home away from home.
Corner unit with 270-degree views of ocean and mountains and very private. Away from the construction site.
Our family of four just spent 2 weeks in Maui at Honua Kai and unit 634. We have stayed at HK on previous occasions and this was the best unit we have stayed in. The unit is ideally located to give you both ocean and mountain views. The positioning of the unit is described in the VRBO pictures and it is spot on. The unit is very quiet and you can enjoy a lot of privacy on the lanai.
Ely and Marsha were a pleasure to deal with as was Monty, the manager. We will definitely stay again next year.
This is the 3rd time we have stayed in this beautiful condo. The previous years we stayed were in 2010 and 2011. We have 4 children - 5, 7, 11, &14. We have stayed in many condos and there is no place where my kids get so excited to stay, as this one. The location is amazing. You have all the amenities of staying in a family resort without having the crowds of a family resort. Having Dukes restaurant right out by the beach is perfect. One of the best places to eat in all of Maui. Right across the street is Times Market for groceries, and down the street 1/4 of a mile is an ABC Store. The Fish Market is also right down the street and If you love Fish Tacos, that is a must!!! The beach has excellent snorkeling. You can literally snorkel for miles down the Kaanapali Beach. You cannot go wrong by staying in this amazing condo. There is no better price for the value you will receive.
4 ladies had the pleasure of staying in this condo on a girls getaway. Everything was there that we could hope for. The pans and knives were decent, placemats available for indoor & outdoor seating, along with enough silverware to host a party of 20+. We enjoyed our stay very much, the condo is very quiet, well furnished and has mountain and ocean views. The bed in the master bedroom was quite comfortable as well. There were nice bath towels as well as pool/beach towels, not mention numerous beach/pool toys and coolers.
The on island contact Monty was helpful prior to our arrival and very kind at check in.
Marsha and Ely, the owners were also a pleasure to deal with and quick to respond to emails.
The property is very nice. The grills and pools were clean and easy to use. There was not a lot of towels "reserving" chairs and the pool service from Duke's was very prompt.
The beach is a great place to watch the sunsets and it is definitely swimmable but a warning that closer to The Mahana are very large rocks, so stay left at the entry! For great snorkeling close by, just go down near the Westin, to Kahekili Beach Park. There is a lot of natural shade and the area has a great reef with plenty of fish and beloved honu!
To the north of Times Market about 1/2 a mile is Okazuya Deli as well as the fish market for fresh fish for dinner and take out items. Binky's is a great little store with VERY reasonable prices to find jewelry & other hand made items, many pieces are made on island.
There is also a farmers market just a bit further north that has great offerings. We enjoyed Bad Ass coffee in the same strip center as well as rented snorkel gear at the Snorkel Bob's there.
The condo, the property as well as the area made for a wonderful trip!
Mahalo for such a wonderful escape!!
This is the second time for us at Honua Kai, and the first time renting this unit. The condo is beautiful - large, well designed and with a massive lanai, providing ocean views on two sides. Ely and Monty were very responsive to our needs. We will definitely rent again!
Our family of four had a wonderful stay at this property! We arrived early and contacted the property manager, Monty. Much to our delight, we were able to check in earlier than expected. This resort is absolutely stunning. I used the gym daily and it was adequate (but I'm a gym junkie/snob). We were able to use the activities desk and the staff were very friendly.
I would definitely recommend this unit and would stay here again.
We had an absolute blast on our vacation. We really loved HKK634, the condo was beautiful, clean and comfortable. The beds were so comfy, reminded me of home. The resort was in a great location, the beach was gorgious. You can watch the sun come up over the mountain and set in the sea and never leave the lanai. We got a surprise mid-week when two chaise lounges were delivered, so comfy. The undercover parking was also perfect. They have a new grocery store right across the street within walking distance, which was nice because we pretty much used the kitchen the whole time. Also, the Viking grills were a treat and it was fun seeing what everyone was cooking. These were a treat which we used frequently. Ely made everything great, kept us super informed. I am not sure when we will make it back, but when we do I will be reaching out to Ely again.
