Aloha!

A beautiful ocean, beach front location where you can forget all your stresses and be at peace. This two bedroom, one full and half bath, ground floor, corner unit condominium is in a delightful location. 11 feet from the ocean. Eight paces to the ocean steps & you are on the beach or taking a dip in very swimmable water! You can sit out on your large, semi private travertine tiled lanai sipping your morning coffee or enjoying a romantic dinner with the surf as your back ground music.

This quiet location is ideal for those who want to get away from it all. At the same time, it is wonderful for families that want a more natural environment that is less commercial, but has a convenient location.

The two reefs, off shore, are a great snorkeling location & at low tide a shallow lagoon forms, great for younger children(see photo) who love to find crabs, small trapped fish and have fun in the shallow water.

The condominium was completely remodeled in November and December of 2010. A developer/contractor and design team have brought about a design concept that is modern, fresh and has a quiet beauty that reflects the environment. Elegant materials such as travertine, sea glass mosaics, granite, bamboo, brushed steel/nickel and ceramics and a punctuation of rattan and island florals that come together to achieve a wonderful ambience.

Lanai: Travertine tiled, tropical vegetation on both sides ocean all across the front. Sunsetter blinds can be brought down to offer late afternoon shade.

The living room: Wall to wall patio slider and louvre windows so that you are never without your ocean view or sounds of the surf or watching the sun set. Furnished with a blend of tropical influences and modern clean lines it is the perfect retreat. The wall mounted flat screen T.V. plays your DVD's & CD'S. I Pod player. Free long distance to the main land & Canada. Hi speed internet available. A.C if desired.

There is a dining area as well as a casual bistro set, situated off from the kitchen. The kitchen granite counter also offers more seating.

The kitchen: Beautiful custom bamboo cabinetry, brushed metals and ocean inspired granite. New stainless appliances, all the utensils, cook ware and dishes you would ever need to make the great ocean front lanai into your private dining room at sun set. Coffee maker, blender, toaster and microwave, George Forman grill and seasonings, all there to help. There are also BBQ's available on the grounds.

The bedrooms: A queen with its dark rattan, ceiling fan and quiet soothing green tones. Vanity area, good closet space & plenty of drawers. The twin with its fun bamboo, ceiling fan, turquoise and ivory accents(beds are side by side, but can easily be pushed together). In case you have two additional in your party, there are two hotel style fold away beds. Both bedrooms have top down bottom up blinds and louvre windows.

Bathrooms: The spa influenced full bathroom with it's walk in shower (with granite seat & grab bars for anyone needing extra help) is accented in travertine, sea glass and granite. Vanity drawers & med cabinet to store all your items away. A hair dryer is also included. Half bath adds extra convenience.

Beach towels/chairs also available for your convenience. The grounds are lush, established and wonderfully tropical. There is a pool with ice and vending machines, handy for the kids. The open air laundry room operates until late evening. Iron & ironing board supplied.

Location, location, location!! 5 minutes from Historic Lahaina and The Cannery Mall and wonderful downtown restaurants. Minutes drive from beautiful Kapalua. Stores, including: a super market in walking(1/10 ml) distance, a farmers market. Other super markets and shopping centers all within a 5-10 minute drive. Casual restaurants are close by too. An 8 minute walk to the right of the complex takes you to 'The Beach Walk'. This is a public walk way that goes along the dunes and through the large resorts on Ka'anapali beach all the way to Black Rock. On the other side of Black Rock you will find more golden beach with activities available.

Between December and April the hump backed whales come through on their way to the Pailolo channel. Whales can be seen from the lanai and it has been reported that calves have been born! Whale watching and boating excursions leave from Lahaina. The double band of reef outside your lanai is habitat to turtles and marine life including rays which glide past. The reef also breaks up the surf so you can enjoy quieter water for swimming, snorkeling & paddle boarding beyond the reef. About two hundred feet up from the condo is a wider sandy beach with play structures(great for youngsters).

We hope you will spend time with us and enjoy your little piece of paradise.

Mahalo!

About Doug Wallway

We are a developer/contractor, interior design team. We live in the Truckee, Tahoe area of California. We have built/remodeled high end homes and many condos, including beautiful lake front properties. Our passion is designing and building & we love doing it in beautiful places. We feel very blessed and fortunate to have this opportunity!

Doug Wallway purchased this condo in 2010

Why Doug Wallway chose Honokowai

We were visiting the beautiful island, Maui for a wedding and rented at The Maui Sands. We really enjoyed the location and the ambience of the Maui Sands resort. While there, we discovered there was a unit for sale & bought it! It is an older two story complex that is right on the water. It is quiet & has a more local feel than the high rises. We really enjoy the uncommercial & quiet beauty of this location.

What makes this condo unique

We love the ocean & its sound! We are only 11 feet from the surf and it is what we have always wanted. It is an older Maui style building with charm and since we don't go to the ocean to hear hotel/pool noise and looking at other guests' balconies this place is perfect. Seeing the wild life in it's natural habitat is wonderful too. Location is central and close enough to the shops & restaurants for when you need them. The setting is so beautiful you will want to stay home for dinner and the sun sets are amazing!

Exceeded Our Expectations

  • 5 of 5
We cannot say enough about the view. Waking every morning to an unobstructed lapis and turquoise colored sea followed by gorgeous sunsets every evening enhanced the magic. Moreover, it was fabulous to watch the paddlers zip by every morning and evening....a real treat.

I admit I was a bit concerned about the rocky beach. However, we took a quick trip to the store and bought $10 water shoes....and that took care of our trepidation. Although we took a day trip out to Lanai for snorkeling....we all agreed that the snorkeling in front of the condo was just as good. There is a 5 foot green sea turtle that inhabits the waters just beyond the second break and we "adopted" her....it was a real highlight of the trip to swim with her (at a respectful distance) day after day. Another important point about the water in front of the condo.....it is deceptively shallow. So, even not-so-strong swimmers can stand in the sand .... even if they venture out 50 yards.

Although we opted to eat lunch and dinner out, the kitchen was well stocked for those who chose to cook. Another highlight of the condo is its location. We zipped into Lahaina and Whalers Village for meals, but also went to the up country for horseback riding and to visit the lilac farm - both a change of pace and worthwhile diversions from snorkeling. Also, there are several food stores close by as well as an ABC store.....We failed to bring an underwater camera and were able to buy one just minutes from the condo.

The property was amazingly quiet. Usually, the only sound we heard was the crashing of the waves. Surprisingly, we never went into the pool; there was just no need. We were pleased with how well stocked the condo was with beach towels, snorkeling gear, beach chairs, and paddle boards. (We failed to notice the snorkeling gear and rented some for the week......so, be sure to check out the supplies before investing in anything.)

My only regret is that we booked our stay for one week instead of two. I have no hesitation highly recommending this property.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed in this condo two times now. The views are great, the condo is super clean and well stocked, the furnishings are nice and the kitchen and bathroom are updated and modern. I would recommend this location for all types of vacations. Family, romantic Etc. The beach just outside the lanai is kid friendly most of the day and the snorkeling is fun. We saw turtles every day and other beautiful ocean life. The pool is fun and well maintained. Its a location that feels safe with some good restaurants nearby. Overall a great place to stay!!

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5
Amazingly beautiful and comfortable condo! This place has everything you could possibly need. The location is perfect. Fish Market across the street is a must.
My family of 5 had the time of our lives. Breathtaking views from the lanai. We snorkled every day. We even swam with the turtles right by the house. We look forward to coming back. Mahalo Doug and Gay!

Gorgeous!

  • 5 of 5
I had an amazing visit to this little gem of a location! Everything was just as the pictures and video showed. The Owners were wonderful to work with and very professional.
A small, quiet, older complex with a local Maui charm that makes you feel a part of the local tapestry. So close to everything I needed. You can spend days here and not want to go anywhere else.
The condo is just beautiful: custom, comfortable, tasteful, with island decor and you can tell the owners have a great eye for what a guest would expect! The kitchen had all I needed to prepare fresh local fish for our amazing sunset dinners on the lanai. The unit was very clean and well maintained.
I loved the Blurey so I could use my own Netflix account too.
THE VIEW!!!! You have The Pacific and Moloka'i IN your living room! The resident turtles come by every day along the dead reef and you can swim and snorkel in the natural lagoons formed by the dead reefs out in front. You can enjoy the ocean and have a dip without leaving your condo! I really enjoyed the nice lounges where I could relax and read i the shade behind the roll down blinds. This would be a great place for families too. I am going to be back for whale season as I have heard it doesn't get any better than watching from your lanai.
Thank you for a wonderful visit and for allowing me to enjoy your beautiful home. Mahalo!!

Absolutely Perfect

  • 5 of 5
Condo was exactly as described and as perfect as could be. Oceanfront views of Lanai and Molokai, quiet neighborhood, and ocean access with nicely protected area just down the steps. We did quite a bit of cooking and found the kitchen well supplied. Everything was well organized and clean. Doug and Gay were easy to work with and happened to be around to say hi during our stay. We hope to get to stay here again.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5
This place feels like home with all the comforts and toys, but it also has the beautiful Pacific Ocean with the mountainous island of Molokai'i right out front framing the sunsets between it and the island of Lanai to the left. You don't even need a car because you have snorkeling with turtles and tropical fish right in front of the condo and it is walking distance to the famous Kanapali beach and shops. It just does not get any better!

Fantastic whale watching & marine life while you sit on your lanai or look out from the unit. Whales, occasionally dolphins can be seen out further and a couple of resident turtles frequent the reef right in front of the lanai. You really can't get a better spot for viewing nature at it's best!
