I have a number of 'holes' in my July, and August calendar and instead of the normal rate of $279/nt they are for rent for just $199/nt - a savings of $80/nt.
*** NEW Meet and Greet service now included ***
We just hired the best 'Meet and greet' company on Maui to contact our guests about one week before you land in Maui and then as you land on Maui. If there are any activities that might book up before you get to Maui, they will notify you so you beat others to these world-class activities that fill up very fast. During the holidays, I can guarantee you that ALL the top activities/restaurants are already 100% sold out the moment your plane lands on the runway at Maui.
Our hostess arrives at the Honua Kai 30 minutes before you, gets your RFID key cards, preregisters you at the front desk and then checks out our villa. They run the A/C and then double check that there are no housekeeping or maintenance issues; on the rare occasion they should find any, they will take steps to correct them BEFORE you even arrive at the Honua Kai.
Then they meet you at the front entrance to the Honua Kai as you drive up and escort you through expedited check-in, and then escort you to our villa and show you how to work the TV, A/C, dishwasher, clothes washer/dryer, the safe, the folding glass wall, etc.
No more wandering the halls and grounds trying to find a villa, no more wasted time and frustration trying to figure out how to make the TV work, the WiFi working, the dishwasher running, or how to get the washer/dryer running - our hostess demonstrates all of these items and more.
Then they take you on a tour of the Honua Kai complex and teach you little known tips and tricks to get your vacation started without a hitch. They know Maui inside and out and can tell you what places/restaurants to visit, what places have spectacular bargains, and what places 'locals' frequent that are a 'Diamond in the rough'.
Plane late and arriving at 3 AM? - no problem - our hostess will still contact you as you land and then meet you at the front entrance to the Honua Kai; 24/7 and do all of the above. They monitor your flight and are aware of any delays or early arrivals.
There is NO COST you you - we pay for it because we want our guests to have the BEST experience of any guest at the Honua Kai, bar none. We offer the best prices and now offer the best experience at the Honua Kai.
Many folks spend 8 to 14 hours just flying to Maui - wouldn't it be nice to know that you have someone on island working hard to make sure your arrival and your entire vacation is a world-class experience?
Our hostess is at your disposal for your ENTIRE trip - they monitor the weather and can advise you in what order to take your activities and if your plans change they can handle that for you. We paid for this world-class service for our guests, so please use it.
By the way, Dukes Beach House restaurant, oceanfront at the Honua Kai Resort is booked solid 5 days in advance EVERY night - make your reservations at this 5-star restaurant BEFORE you land in Maui.
*** Awards ***
Honua Kai Resort & Spa is a AAA 4-Diamond Resort
Honua Kai made the Conde Nast Gold List for Hawaiian resorts for 2014. This is a real honor for us considering we competed against all the Four-Seasons in Hawaii.
Ka'anapali Beach is the #1 beach in North America for 2013 - voted by an organization that represents millions of renters and visitors.
Honua Kai is on Ka’anapali Beach!
Honua Kai is the #1 resort in north Maui and #2 resort on Maui (After Four Seasons which costs 5 times as much and can't compare to the Honua Kai)
Please Bookmark this page RIGHT NOW - as you shop around you will see there is NO less expensive way to stay at the Honua Kai than with my low rates, for our 1-bedroom ocean view villa at the Honua Kai Resort & Spa. Trust me on this! I also offer that $199/day rate you may have heard about – that’s me.
Our 700 sq ft 1-bedroom villa has an ocean view and has a 145 sq ft lanai (balcony). Many 1-bedrooms, at the Honua Kai, are 620 sq ft just a few sq ft larger than a studio villa! That’s a 9’ by 9’ chunk of villa missing – check the villa size before you rent! (not with lanai) I can tell you that 9’ by 9’ missing chunk is going to hurt in a 1-bedroom, even for a party of 2. Prorated rental rates from these mini 1-bedrooms can't compare to our normal size 1-bedroom!
It's easy to spot my renters at the Honua Kai - they have the largest grins and laugh uncontrollably - everyone around them paid more than they did - everyone. Join my army of folks who delight in living the good life for the least amount of money.
So why are we the cheapest 1-bedroom or studio anywhere? Next to the Honua Kai there sits the Westin Hotel construction site; there that’s the reason. Construction stopped 3 years ago and they just planted grass indicating delays in construction even further; it is now a vacant lot with grass!
What do I do? I lowered my price and offer exactly the same Honua Kai Resort & Spa as all the other VRBO listings for the Honua Kai. The same swimming pools, same water slide, same lazy river, same beach, same Duke’s Restaurant, same wonderful grounds, and the best 5-star resort on Maui and I’ll give you a discount for the less than perfect view from our villa. From our lanai you will see the same wonderful green Honua Kai grounds, the same Pacific Ocean, the same blazing Maui sunsets as all the other ocean view/front villas at Honua Kai.
So I’m the villa to consider if your party of 4 or less folks would rather spend their money on activities like trips to Hana, whale watching, luaus, fine restaurants (like Duke’s Restaurant), airline tickets, car rentals, etc, rather than on a perfect view from the living room. You know – the reason you came to Maui is to get out of your villa and see things.
Heck, for half the day our view is as good as the finest views at the Honua Kai – the sun is down and you can’t see anything anyway. In fact, with the money you save renting our villa you can purchase trip insurance that will pay you 100% of my rent, your airline tickets, pre-paid excursions on Maui, etc. – contact me for the details. You can cancel for ANY reason under the sun – not just a medical reason.
Contact me – I write about the Honua Kai every day on my website Honua Kai Cafe – I’ve got hundreds of posts and pictures of things to do on Maui and the Honua Kai – the website is free to all. I have a “Best of” series that covers just about everything on Maui. I go into weddings, all the various activities on Maui, and things to do and things not to do on Maui.
I want my villa rented and for those of you who are value minded then we make a great team! Ask me questions about the Honua Kai and Maui and let me prove to you that my villa, at the Honua Kai, is perfect for the value minded shopper.
Let me prove to you that paying big bucks to sit in your room is not the way to enjoy Maui; contact me to see my website. Even if you don’t rent with me my website can save you lots of money and prevent a waste of time and money at second rate restaurants, activities, and locations around Maui. You only have a few precious days on Maui – I can help you make the best use of your time and money.
If you see other Honua Kai VRBO ads with the $29/day 'Resort fee' - not with us - we don't charge that hidden fee at all!

As the owner of our villa I hope folks who rent from us enjoy the Honua Kai Resort & Spa. Honua Kai is a 5-star resort that will dominate the high end 5-star resort for a generation.
The largest impact I can have on our renters is to offer them a fantastic deal with a smooth transaction from first contact to the eMail we send our guests after they arrive home from their stay at our villa.
I love snowboarding and vacationing in Maui. I have 18+ years of renting timeshares and our condos. Take advantage of our fantastic rates at the Honua Kai Resort & Spa. 'Frugal' is my middle name.
My goal is to offer the best Honua Kai Resort experience for the least amount of money to my renters. I get high occupancy and you get to stay at the hottest 5-star resort on Maui for the least amount of money - we both win.
Just contact me and find out the least amount of money a family, of 4 or less, would spend to stay and use the Honua Kai Resort's facilities and then you will know exactly how much the 12-hours of daylight lit landscape, that my competitors offer, costs you - you will be shocked!
Please check my calendar, below, and then ask for a price quote - I enjoy sending out the price quotes and interacting with all you folks. I love Maui and I love the Honua Kai and feel fortunate to be a part of this grand resort.
But no matter what, as an owner at the Honua Kai let me be the first to welcome you to Honua Kai - the hottest 5-star resort on Maui. Many of you will fall in love with the place and next time you visit Maui keep me in mind if you want to reallocate your funds/budget with more emphasis on activities and less on landscape views.
Again, I highly recommend that you bookmark this VRBO listing for future reference.
Mahalo and Aloha...
We love the northern part of Maui and Ka'anapali Beach is just fantastic. Honua Kai is a true 5-star resort and in the middle of all the wonderful activities on Maui. Honua Kai is THE family resort to stay at while visiting Maui - it offers fantastic accommodations that your family will remember for a lifetime.
And it will be the family's interaction with Maui that memories are built from. We have vacationed 12+ times in Maui and have only done a fraction of things we eventually want to do on Maui. Consider Honua Kai your 'Base of operations' as you do and see all the wonderful things that only happen on one small island in the world - Maui.
'Dr. Beach' (Dr. Stephen P. Leatherman) has voted Ka'anapali Beach as the #1 beach in the United States - that's no secret to the locals on Maui - the Honua Kai is right on that beach and the main reason we bought our villa here.
#1 resort in North Maui and probably on the whole island of Maui! Cut out the middleman and those large expensive rental companies and deal direct with the owner. My rates are the lowest for any Honua Kai villa and the money you save can be used to pay for activities on Maui, rental car, airline tickets, and I recommend trip insurance.
Maid Fees: We charge a $155 cleaning fee per reservation and with the 4.166% tax is $161.46; all this money goes to the cleaning company that services our villa – we make no money with this charge. This includes a pre-cleaning and a post-cleaning of the villa. Daily maid service is NOT included in our rates. Those villas that offer “daily maid service” (Really just “Tidy Service”) just have a maid drop by, inconvenience you, make the bed, and replace towels. That’s it – 5 minutes and they're out of the villa. The daily $25 “Resort fee” covers this for 5 minutes of maid service per day and dry towels.
Folks, pay yourself $25 a day for 3 minutes of work - make the bed, throw the wet towels in the dryer and go to Dukes and spend the saved money on a fantastic meal for your family. At least that's what we do.
We can provide a much better maid service for about $40 per cleaning and this is a real cleaning of your villa.
Join my army of happy renters who know that absolutely everyone else at the Honua Kai paid more than they did to stay there - everyone! That saved money will be used to enrich their family's vacation experience and not someone else.
Swimming pools all over the place: 1) Beach pool (sandy bottom), 2) Slide & Waterfall Pool, 3) Keiki Pool (Children's), 4) Adult (Formal) Pool, 5) Lazy River Pool, and Jacuzzi's throughout the tropical grounds.
Maui's best restaurant is ocean front on property it's Duke's Beach House with pool side service to all pools.
A soon to be opened 7,000 sq. ft. spa and 2 amazing fitness rooms now open.
Aina Coffee Bar & Gourmet Market in our lobby.
There is a 1 mile beach walk south to the Sheraton, and Black Rock with nightly cliff diving ceremonies at sunset and the best snorkeling in Maui continuing south to Whalers Village - a 45 minute walk from the Honua Kai
