Overview

Honokowai Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3)

One of the best condos in Maui (with the reviews to prove it)!

Note: Standard VRBO rates are provided as a convenience, but please contact me for the best available nightly rate.

The beautiful pacific ocean is 25 ft away from your lanai! Listen to the waves and see the stunning views of Lanai and Molokai. During whale season, you can see whales all day long. The condo itself is designed as something I would expect from an upscale Maui resort. So it's very well appointed and very comfortable. A vacation condo should feel like home and somewhere you look forward to returning to.

I've put a lot of work into the place and care a lot about the condo and your experience in it. You can see that reflected in the reviews! :-)

Check out the beautiful, new shower! Finally got around to remodeling the shower and it came out amazing. All slate, river rock, and quartzite. There's also an Alsons shower head that provides a 'rain' effect or more traditional water flow. I'm stoked about it and you will be too. :-)

I keep my calendar updated. If it says condo is available, it is. I know it's frustrating when you see an available condo and it's just due to folks not updating their calendars.

Key Amenities: A/C, new high-end mattress, 600 thread count linens, free reserved parking, wired/wireless internet, flat screen TV, remodeled kitchen, newly remodeled shower, and lots of small amenities like a hair dryer in the bathroom and juicer in the kitchen.

Check out the Google Map below with some great recommendations for eating and activities. See the video for the view off of the lanai.

My name is Jim Tierney and I recently purchased this condo to live in 3 months of the year. I recently finished remodeling it and it came out beautifully. Since I'll be living in it, the remodel was necessary to make it someplace I'd want to stay. So this is not a normal rental unit where everything was done on the cheap! I love the Westin and their Heavenly Bed, so that was my target in creating the space (minus all the noise and timeshare sales pitches :-).

I figure there's two things people want from a Maui vacation... 1) to see and hear the ocean from their lanai and 2) to get some sleep. :-) As for the ocean, the condo is 25 feet away from the ocean so you can sit on the lanai and watch the waves crash into the sea wall or the sun set over the wide pacific and disappear behind Molokai. When it comes to sleeping I'm pretty particular about the mattress I sleep on, so it was important to find a good mattress that rivaled what I expect from the Westin. It's wrapped up in designer bedding and 600 thread count sheets. It's amazingly comfortable and I think you'll find it's wonderful to listen to the waves as you drift off to sleep.

It's a wonderful, luxurious space that will give you everything you want from a Maui vacation. I look forward to having you experience it for yourself.

If you're into cooking, the kitchen has been completely remodeled with granite countertops and custom wood cabinets. You have all the cookware necessary for a complete meal and then some. The dishes, glassware, and tableware are all beautiful and will make having dinner on the lanai at sunset feel like a 5 star restaurant. You are also a couple minutes away from a market that specializes in local and organic foods, if you're looking for fresh ingredients.

There's also a brand new air conditioner, which is not common in vacation rentals.

Of course, there's the usual stuff, 32' flatscreen TV with DVD and cable, high speed internet with WiFi, speakers to plug an iPod into, hair dryer, small library of DVDs, and even a desk to write postcards on or check email (not that you'd be doing that on your vacation). There's also stuff like beach chairs, a boogie board, snorkel equipment, and beach towels. The couch becomes a queen sized, simmons sofa bed to accomodate kids or another adult. This IS a sofa bed. It's a nice one, but like all sofa beds it's not the paragon of comfort, especially for adults.

There are two pools. However, this is a residential condo complex (meaning folks live here year round) so the pools aren't resort quality. There's no waterslides, bars, spa, lifeguards, or attendants handing you towels. They are nice, clean pools, but more modest than you'd find in a resort. Of course, the condo has pool/beach towels for your use and it's easy enough to mix up your own drinks in the blender. :-) There's also a couple day spas a short distance away.

The unit is adjacent to a sandy beach which is great for swimming and snorkeling or just laying out. There's a grassy area directly in front with a gas BBQ, tables, and chaise lounges. You're one block from restaurants and shopping. It's an excellent central location to go north to Kapalua or south to Kaanapali, Lahaina town and the Lahaina Harbor.

The condo is non-smoking and is on the second floor, up one flight of stairs.

About Jim

Hi, I'm Jim Tierney. I live most of the year in San Francisco and escape to Maui whenever I get tired of the foggy weather. I run a small software company and have the good fortune of being able to work anywhere there's an internet connection. Luckily that's the case with Maui, so whenever I get an urge for whale watching, diving, or laying in the sun it's no problem coming over. I love diving and the diving in Maui is spectacular, there are some really beautiful spots. I also have a passion for photography, particularly whales and outdoor scenes, so you'll see some of my work on the walls of the unit.

I hope you'll check out my place. I put a lot of work into it making sure it was a livable space for when I'm there. So I think the standards I have for the condo is much higher than most rental units.

Jim purchased this condo in 2009

Why Jim chose Honokowai

I bought this because I'll be there about 3 months of the year and I wanted something on the ocean. A friend of mine lives in the same building so I was very familiar with the property and all it offered (ok, so mostly it offered the ocean about 20 feet way :-). It's amazing to watch the sun set during the summer, see the whales during the winter, and listen to the waves all year long.

What makes this condo unique

A wonderful view (did I mention you're 25 feet from the ocean :-), a high-end, very comfortable bed, a full kitchen, and air conditioning.

Perfection

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I could not have chosen a better place to stay. The condo was quiet and easy to find after traveling all day. We especially liked the fact that we could walk a short distance and have an entire beach almost to ourselves without having to dodge kids on boogie boards. We were thankful that the condo had an air conditioner as the Trade Winds had disappeared a few days after our arrival. Sitting on the lanai in the morning was perfect for reading, drinking coffee and watching the waves. I love the feel of the waves hitting the wall and vibration resulting as it proved how closed to the water I was and the power of the water. We drove frequently between towns with ease and ate at some amazing places. Most places had fresh caught fish and the flavors were amazing. We attended a luau and made the trips for sunrise and Hana with tours. Thank You Jim for providing such a great place.

So relaxing!

My husband and I stayed at this lovely Condo recently during our holiday to Hawaii from Australia. We thoroughly enjoyed the quiet location and the wonderful sunsets every night from the Lanai. The Condo has everything you need as others have mentioned. Thanks to the local snorkelling shop's advice (Boss Frogs) we had a fantastic day at Kapalua Bay snorkelling with the turtles and returned each day to the Condo to watch the local turtles bobbing around at the rock wall, a real delight for us Aussies! Thanks for a lovely stay Jim, we will return some day, next time for longer!

A Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5
Would I come back to this Condo, ABSOLUTELY. It was perfect for us. The view was fabulous, ocean view from everywhere except the bathroom. It was clean and had everything we needed. There were turtles right out front anytime of the day or evening. We walked to eating places when we did not want to drive and there were two little grocery stores if you did not want to go to Times or Safeway. The beaches were a couple of blocks but who cares, you can still walk and the one to the south has lots of parking if you want to take chairs, drinks etc. at that beach a turtle actually came onto the sand two different days. The swimming pool, which we also used a lot, was right across the street about one minutes walk and there was hardly anyone there. We loved this place and as soon as we decide when we are going back I will again rent this condo. Thanks Jim for sharing your lovely Maui Condo with us.

Paradise!

What a fantastic place to stay right on the water and no crowds! We loved the condo and all it's facilities. The new shower is very impressive as is the lovely equipped kitchen. The lanai was fabulous, ate breakfast each day there watching and listening to the waves! The beaches in the area north of the condo are lovely and we were thrilled to see large green turtles swimming below us while we snorkeled. A wonderful break in Maui away from the hustle & bustle of Honolulu! We will return. Nearly forgot, the most beautiful sunsets every night were a highlight!

Excellent condo!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I had a wonderful stay at Jim's condo. The lanai is literally feet off the ocean so we slept with the screen door only and heard the waves breaking all night. We also saw beautiful sunsets as enjoyed nice showers in the newly renovated shower. Lahaina is a great place to stay for couples. We loved being so close to Kapalua (LOVED MERRIMANS Kapalua for dinner and drinks). Also Jim's contacts on the ground were wonderful and helpful - a tropical storm hit while we were there and they left us candles, flashlights, batteries, etc and followed up to make sure we were ok. So did jim. We really enjoyed ourselves
