About Rich Barra

Greetings from Salt Lake City, Utah. Maui is our favorite place to 'get away from it all' and Honua Kai is our favorite place on Maui! We go as often as we can, and it is never enough. Rich owns an electronics company and Joyce is a college professor teaching in a Masters program at a local university. We also love to travel the world, but nothing beats the beach on Maui at sunset.

Rich Barra purchased this studio in 2010

Why Rich Barra chose Kaanapali

This is the first whole ownership beach front condominium property to be built in 25 years. It's a new resort property that combines a unique and spacious studio floor plan, great lanai, property amenities and fabulously uncrowded beach. When we first saw the property, we fell totally in love and bought immediately. We've always loved Maui and now we have two loves ... Maui and our studio!

What makes this studio unique

Everything we need in a resort is here. From the fabulous onsite Duke's Beach Grill and A'aina Market and Deli to the terrific pools, water slide and hot tubs we never get tired of just hanging out on our lanai and watching the world go by. The views from our condo lanai are simply spectacular and the beach is wonderfully uncrowded. The ocean front Beach Walk connects the resort with Whaler Village. It's one of our favorite walks in the morning. A short walk across the street from the resort is a grocery store along with several restaurants within walking distance. Everything we need to totally enjoy our stay is close by.

We Found Our Little Piece of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Maui last year and got completely ripped off by the place we chose, but are so glad we didn't give up on the island because Honua Kai is what I expect Heaven to be when I get there... Unit 515 is everything it shows on the Web-site and more. It was clean and fully equipped for everything you could ever want. The Ladies from Maui Adventures met us when they said they would and showed us everything about the unit we needed to know. The booking process with VRBO and Rich went smoothly and was completely secure... we will definitely be back again... Thanks for everything...

Our home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Have stayed in this condo for 4 or 5 years now! We stayed for 3 1/2 weeks this year and it really does feel like our home away from home. We love the view and love that it is very comfortable if we don't want to always go out at night - has a great kitchen!! The owners are very responsive if we ever have any concerns. We love the Dukes on property. Would highly recommend this condo to anyone who wants to get away and have a VERY comfortable, clean place to stay and relax!!

Fantastic Condo w/great views

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in this condo for about a week. It exceeding our expectations in every way. The property grounds are amazing with multiple pools, places to relax, and having Dukes restaurant on site was great. The unit itself was amazing. The pictures don't do it justice because the entire back wall of glass slides open out on to the large lanai making the space feel like it's doubling in size. The view from this particular condo is great as you have a full on view of the ocean behind the property grounds. Sunsets were great from the deck. It helps that the unit is on a higher floor. The unit was very clean, had all kinds of kitchen items, and even had some olive oil, salt & pepper, coffee, coffee filters, etc. Not sure if that is always guaranteed, but very nice to not have to purchase some of those small but needed items.

The woman who greeted us for our late check in was very easy to contact, very friendly in terms of showing us the unit, etc.

Would highly recommend this property.

Honeymoon from 11-9 to 11-16

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at Konea 515 for our honeymoon! Rich was very prompt in responding to our initial reservation request and helpful in answering our questions from the start. The whole reservation process was very easy to book.

Candice at MVA did our food shopping which was very convenient since we had a late flight in.

The condo was just as described and very clean. My wife especially liked the his and her sinks. The view from the lanai is amazing and we watched a few sunrises and sunsets from there. The Honua Kai amenities were great as well and we enjoyed time relaxing by the pool and the beach right in front of the condo.

We also met Mike while we were there and he gave us some tips on places to eat. The guide provided to us by Rich was also very helpful for finding great beaches and restaurants. Our favorite restaurants were Duke's, Lahaina Fish House, Okazuka and Hula Grill (the best fish tacos!). Our favorite snorkel spots were Turtle Town, Kapalua Bay, and Ulua Beach. Rich was also very accomadative for us during the check out process.

We are looking forward to a return trip!

Dan and Katelyn from NJ!

Honeymoon

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in the condo for part of our Honeymoon and we are so glad we did. The studio is beautiful and the property is, too. It was so nice to be able to cook some meals and do laundry! It is a HUGE studio by our NYC standards. Huge bathroom, beautiful kitchen, comfy bed - everything looks brand new. The cooler and beach chairs were so convenient. Duke's restaurant and bar on the property is a great place to eat and have drinks. They also have multiple spots on the property for BBQing. The beach is narrow, but we didn't mind because it was nice to not have anyone sitting in front or behind you on the beach. The sand was like brown sugar and the beach was not crowded at all. The sunsets are amazing! We only went in the pool once for a night swim, but they were very nice and we noticed even in the middle of the day there were open lounge chairs - something you don't see at big resorts. We would definitely recommend this resort to families with small children- which there were many - but they didn't bother us at all. It was great for honeymooners, too. We would definitely go back if and when we make the long trip from NYC again :) Thank you to Rich!

Perfect Vacation Location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at Honua Kai for 8 days in the end of August. The location, although a good distance from the airport (45 min) was in a very good location with lots to do within driving distance. The unit itself had all of the amenities one would need or expect. The size was perfect for two people. We really enjoyed using the "nana" wall which we opened everyone morning and evening to enjoy the fresh air and the sounds of the ocean. The grounds of the resort are well maintained and the pool and hot tubs were very enjoyable. The local contact was very helpful in familiarizing us with the unit and the area as well as providing support when booking dinners or other activities. To address some of the comments I found on Tripadvisor not about this unit specifically, but on the resort... The resort is on the windy side of the island but we enjoyed the breeze as it cooled us down while laying by the pool. We had no issue with the wind in the unit, even with the lania opened up. There was no issue with smell in the direct area of the resort. I would not hesitate to book my vacation in this unit again. Thanks for everything!!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the thorough review. Especially for putting to rest the extremely intermittent issues that show up on TripAdvisor and are NEVER an issue at this unit at all. Love to see you again on your next vacation to Maui!
