OCEANFRONT - SPACIOUS STUDIO - KING SIZE BED, FULL KITCHEN

Honokowai Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2) adjoining 1 Bedroom also available, sleeps 4

Keywords: View, Oceanfront, Condo, Golf, Lahaina, Snorkeling, Adjoins #330040 for Double Unit

Our direct oceanfront Paki Maui condos, (we have 4 Condos at Paki Maui, to see VRBO numbers for these click more detail below) are located in beautiful West Maui along the Ka'anapali coast above Lahaina. While relaxing on your Paki Maui condo's private lanai, you will have incredible views of the islands of Moloka'i and Lana'i and the breathtaking Hawaiian sunsets will be a lasting memory. Listen to the local sounds announcing sunset every evening by the blowing of the conch shells up and down the coast.

If your travels bring you to Maui from mid-December through April, you will be treated to the magical experience watching the migration of the incredible Humpback whales to the warm Maui waters. Watch these “gentle giant’s” frolic in the channel from your lanai or book a trip on a local whale watching boat where whale sightings are practically guaranteed during this time. Pods of spinner dolphins and giant green sea turtles can be seen year round.

The Unqiue Benefits of this Condo: As owners of these two units, we have checked and rechecked into vacation rental companies, and have decided to give it a whirl on our own. We did try a couple of them before we had renovated and they are just not good enough for us. We are way too fussy in the cleaning department. So if you are looking for somewhere that has taken extra care for your bedding, towels, dishes, floors and baths, you want to stay with us. We even ask that you remove your shoes. We want more for our guests than the big companies offer. We live in Maui and live only about 5 minutes away. If we are not available we have back up people (two) that can come to your every beck and call. About 50% of Paki Maui is run by Castle Resorts, and they man the front desk. About 25 % are people like us, or those that have chosen other Property Managers, and the remainder of the Paki is owner occupied.

Concierges Desk: You are free to consult the concierges’ desk in the front office, and they are happy to exchange bills for the quarters you might need for laundry. Other than that we run our 4 units by ourselves.

.

Our Condos at Paki Maui: We have four Condos at Paki Maui, Two 1 Bedroom's and Two Studios. You can get info on these at www.vrbo.com/301672, www.vrbo.com/310587, www.vrbo.com/330040, and www.vrbo.com/330047

About Jannette Knowley

We are originally from Salt Lake City, Utah, we have lived in Maui for 12 years now, just up the street in Kaanapalii. We love Maui, and hope to stay here forever more. We have become active in the community. We belong to Lahaina Yacht club and participate in many activities benefitting the children (the Keiki) of Maui. We have been in the hospitality industry (we owned a large nightclub/sports bar) for more that 20 years and feel we know how to take care of peoples needs. We are very friendly people, and if time allows we could get together for a refreshment or two. Yes, many people from Salt Lake really do occasion a cocktail.

Jannette Knowley purchased this condo in 2010

Why Jannette Knowley chose Honokowai

As you already know, we have been here for several years, we have looked into many different locations and found that the Honokawai area and particularly Paki Maui to be the best of all worlds. Paki Maui has beautiful grounds that are exceptionally well maintained. It is located adjacent to a beach park. It is central to the Islands West side and has so much to offer within walking distance or a short drive. We are surrounded by beaches, golf courses, famous restaurants, the farmers market. Downtown Lahaina is only a few miles away where nightlife, shops and galleries abound. Whalers village is just a hop skip and jump away. Stop to see the Whalers museum and learn all about whales. If you are in the mood to stay in and enjoy the sunset from your lanai or the beach you have pizza, local cuisine, fresh fish, super market, deli's or numerous other food establishment only a short walk away.

What makes this condo unique

If you are looking for somewhere that has taken extra care for your bedding, towels, dishes, floors and baths, you want to stay with us. We even ask that you remove your shoes. We want more for our guests than the big companies offer. We are in Maui most of the time and live only about 5 minutes away. If we are not available we have back up people (two) that can come to your every beck and call. About 50% of Paki Maui is run by Castle Management, and they man the front desk. About 25 % are people like us, or those that have chosen other Property Managers, and the remainder of the Paki is owner occupied. You are free to consult the concierges’ desk in the front office, and they are happy to exchange bills for the quarters you might need for laundry. Other than that we run our 4 units by ourselves.

Amazing location with a beautiful view and perfect lanai!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I visited Kent and Jannette's condo for a quick anniversary trip and were very pleased with every detail!

The condo was easy to find - great directions so we knew what to expect before we got there and the passcode worked great - we loved not having to carry a hotel room key everywhere we went!

It was a short drive to anything we wanted to do in Lahaina, Kaanapali, and Kahana. The ABC store down the road was perfect for picking up snacks & drinks. We were central to everything else we wanted to do, too.

The pool and hot tub were very nice. We met some very friendly full-time residents there. We walked to the coffee shop across the street in the mornings, and then headed to the beach park next door to search for shells & beach glass, watch the fish on the reef, and swim with the turtles. We saw turtles every afternoon!

The condo itself is decorated beautifully, very clean, comfortable, and has everything you need! We slept with the slider open and listened to the waves every night - amazing! The view and sunsets from the lanai made this place for us. You really couldn't ask for better!

Working with Kent & Jannette was really easy & pleasurable. They were more than helpful and accommodating! Having everything we needed in the kitchen, the beach chairs, and the cooler were all bonuses that made the trip that much better!

Fantastic! (Even during a hurricane)

  • 5 of 5
I sit here as I write this review on the last night of our honeymoon stay at this lovely condo. We are going to miss it so much! First, I can't say enough about how great our experience was from beginning to end. From my first exchange with Jeanette I was immediately at ease and could tell that she and her husband are really passionate about making sure their guests are taken care of. We stayed during the approach of hurricane Iselle, which was a little scary, and Kent and Jeanette went out of their way to make us comfortable, even inviting us to stay at their house uphill and inland if we felt the slightest bit uncomfortable weathering the storm at the condo, being that it was on the water. We didn't need to stay with them in the end but we were so impressed with their thoughtfulness and concern for our safety. We have traveled a lot, and this kind of special attention to guests, is definitely rare and very much appreciated.

Now the condo itself…..wonderful! When we walked in it just FELT clean…every surface, nook and cranny was spotless and not in a "wiped down" fast sort of way. The cabinets were stocked with all we could need. The bed is so comfortable we're trying to figure out how to sneak it out and bring it on the plane with us. The viewfrom the lanai is unbeatable!! You can see both islands of Molokai and Lanai and you sit right on the gorgeous turquoise sea. Just this afternoon we were swimming out back and watched a sea turtle up close, eating from the reef offshore. The pool and hot tub are wonderful at sunset.

The location of the condo is perfect, as well. Very close to Lahaina town, where we ate at several fantastic restaurants and also enjoyed meeting Kent and Jeannette for drinks. (Truly fantastic people!) Kapalua is just north, where we snorkeled Kapalua Bay and had a romantic dinner at Merriman's. Before our arrival, Jeanette sent suggestions of things to do on Maui, which was very nice. She also sent clearly laid out directions to the condo and thorough information about it, which was so helpful. It was an easy drive from the airport. The condo is in walking distance to a farmers market, local eateries and a nearby beach park.

All in all, in spite of the hurricane scare, our stay was wonderful….
A wonderful condo in paradise like this one makes for an incredible vacation.
A wonderful condo in paradise like this one with owners like Kent and Jeannette makes it a stellar one!

Owner's Response: Aloha C and K (B). Awwwww many mahalos for such an incredible review. I'm blushing, but thanks for giving the information that you did. The proximity to market, beaches and such are very important to upcoming guests and help them make a decision. We hope your Kauai trip is superb as well. But in all honesty it is Kent and I who are honored to have met your acquaintance. Wow "SINGERS/RECORDING ARTISTS", along with song writers of two #1 songs sung by the big guns. WOW!!! And I am so excited about your upcoming tour. We wish you both the best. Don't forget us simple people when you're #1 best sellers on the top ten your selves. We hope you will come back and see us again, and enjoy your little corner of the world here in Maui at Paki. Angels on both your WORLDS.

Aloha Kent and Jannette!! We absolutely loved the studio. The view from our Lanai was breath taking! We enjoyed eating out there while watching the waves come in and the turtles swim by. We loved that you provided the snorkel gear, the beach chairs and the cooler! The location was perfect, we loved the Farmers Market across the street and all the other near by beaches. We are already planning a trip back. We've told our friends and family about our stay. Kent and Jannette thank you for making our first time visit to Maui an amazing experience!!

Owner's Response: Aloha Mike and Suz. Many Mahalos for your kind words. I'm so very happy you two had a great time. I enjoyed our visit, as short as it was it was still great. You two deserve a little more time away, I can attest to that. Take life a bit easier, come back sooner and more often. I'd love that. Angels on your day J

Perfect Location! Whales, sunsets, and oceanfront - So Awesome!!!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay in this awesome studio was our best stay yet. We have been to Maui several times but enjoyed this studio and location the best. The ocean is right out your lanai and the views are unbelievable. You see whales everywhere during whale season and 2 other islands are the backdrop for the most beautiful sunsets. The studio is well appointed with all you could need and the layout is great. The condo resort is well taken care of and is in a quiet location away from the hustle and bustle. The farmers market and little general store across the street are a must do right from the beginning of your trip. The owners handled every detail with great precision, care, and consideration for our vacation. We would have loved to stay forever! We would highly recommend this studio and we are sure you will not be disappointed. We feel so blessed to have had such a wonderful opportunity to stay in this heavenly place and look forward with hope to stay here again in the future. Words cannot express our gratitude to the owners for our unbelievable stay with them in Maui!

Mahalo!!!

Owner's Response: Aloha D & C: So many mahalos from the bottom of my heart for such a great review. Thanks so much for writing and letting people know how your trip was. I appreciate the time you took to explain what's around the condo. That little Farmers Market store is great and so close. Also I loved your thoughts on our studio. It is certainly comfortable with it's openness. AND yup that view is just AWESOME. Come back and see us please. Angels on your day

Amazing Ocean Front Studio, YOU WILL LOVE STAYING HERE!!!!

  • 5 of 5
If you are looking for an amazing place to stay while visiting Maui, look no further! Everything about this property is exactly as described and the owners could not be nicer people. From the beginning inquiry to our check out, Jannette was professional, helpful and easy to work with. As previous reviewers mentioned, she even sends you suggestions of things to do while in Maui.

This unit was very spacious, my fiancé and I stayed here for a week. We loved waking up and falling asleep to the sound of the waves everyday and enjoying our breakfast out on the lanai. The ocean is literally RIGHT THERE IN FRONT OF YOU! Almost every single day we had our turtle friends visit us in the morning, and on a few days we saw whales playing out in the distance (even saw a few breachs!). We went snorkeling in front noticed there were thousands of baby fish RIGHT at the rocks closest to shore. We even saw an eel hunting these fish. Even though we were snorkeling in 2 feet of water, it was some of the coolest stuff we saw (baby angel fish, baby parrot fish).

The unit was insanely clean, you can really tell the owners care about their guests. A lot of thought must have been put into what to stock the unit with, because as other reviewers mention, just as you thought of something you would need....BAM....it was in the next drawer. We really enjoyed the cooler that we took around with us during our excursions as well as the binoculars for whale watching! There is even a safe in the home, which was greatly appreciated, as I didn't want to take my engagement ring to the beach!

Paki Maui is also in a great location. Just a short 5 minute walk in either direction will take you to helpful shops. To the right you can get to the ABC store and to the left you can get to Boss Frogs (rental place), Bad Ass Coffee and the Farmers Market. Farmers Market is a GREAT little local store to get some produce and food. You MUST try the mac nut pesto, it is AMAZING, as well as the coconut tapioca. FM also has a small farmers market on Mon, Wed and Fridays from I think 7-11 am. Also RIGHT across the street was The fish Market. BEST ahi sandwich and poke EVER!

I could go on and on, but I have a 2500 character limit on this review. Don't hesitate, book now. Oh and the 1 bedroom unit next door connects, so you could rent out both units with friends or family! Thanks J&K for sharing your home! We cannot wait to come back!

Owner's Response: Aloha Y and J: Wowser, what a review!!!!!! OH MY, I'm at loss of words. How in the world do I thank you enough. That was fabulous, and I soooooo appreciate it. So many people read the reviews to see what others have experienced. It is so very helpful when they read something like you have written. You can tell, it was from the HEART. I hope you two will come stay with us again. Many Mahalos and Big Hula Hugs, J and K.

The 3 Reasons to choose Paki Maui for your Stay.

  • 5 of 5
Location. Steps from the ocean, this lovely oceanfront property offers quick access to top-rated restaurants, local shopping and water adventures in the heart of West Maui. The property offers convenient onsite parking and walking access to grocery stores and attractions. Even more, you're just steps from to one of Hawaii's signature 3-mile stretch of white sand and crystal clear water, Kaanapali Beach.

Accommodations. In a word, impressive. This spacious studio overdelivers on cleanliness and amenities. The owners thought of everything their guests might need for their stay -- ranging from BBQ utensils for grilling (on site) to beach chairs and towels for some relaxation under the swaying palms. Keep an eye out for humpback whales as you dine on your private lanai. (We spotted two whales during breakfast in November.) The bed was extremely comfortable and the crashing waves lulled us to sleep. And did we mention breathtaking views of the islands of Molokai and Lanai and unobstructed Hawaiian sunsets from your lanai?

Service. The owners were extremely kind, responsive and accommodating when planning our 10-day stay on the island. They provided activity and attraction recommendations tailored to our interests. We recommend the early (and we mean early) trek to watch sunrise at Haleakala. Take the Road to Hana and be sure to pack a picnic lunch (use the cooler and the audio CD from the condo) for this day-long adventure. On the last day of our stay, we even received a courtesy call to ensure our stay was comfortable.

Price. It's the best value around for a stay in paradise. We've spent more on a single night stay at a Chicago hotel with just a fraction of the amenities and comfort. (And with no beach in sight.) Skip the hotel. We highly recommend a stay at Jannette and Kent's condo in Paki Maui.
