Napili Condo Rental Photos and Description

Oceanfront ground floor condo, King/twin Bedroom + Sofabed, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

WELCOME! Enjoy the Aloha feeling of Old Hawaii in modern comfort. Unit 114 is a ground floor one-bedroom oceanfront condo in the most romantic spot of West Maui. Your condo opens directly onto a landscaped lawn with a heated swimming pool and barbecue facilities. However, the real treat is Honokeana Cove, directly in front of your lanai - a secluded and uncrowded snorkeling area filled with tropical fish and coral gardens. Here, you can have the unforgettable experience of swimming just yards away from the many giant Green Sea Turtles who live in the Cove.

YOUR UNIT. There's no high rise concrete here, and no crowds either. Honokeana Cove is a gated community with only 38 low-rise condos embracing the Cove. And Unit 114 is right in the center of the oceanfront – relax on the lanai and enjoy sweeping ocean and surf views, afternoon sun, and romantic sunsets.

This condo is modern, well equipped for your comfort and relaxation. The bedroom is air conditioned and may be configured with a king bed or two single beds at your request. The bedroom has double windows for soundproofing and room-darkening curtains. The beds have foam toppers on one side but not the other: if the mattress is too soft or too firm, you can flip it over. The living room has a queen sofa bed, and there is a folding screen (stored beneath the king bed) to provide extra privacy if desired.

AVAILABILITY. Book in advance for the best choice – click “View Calendar” for open dates. We have openings in April 2015 and beyond.

FAIR RATES! Honokeana Cove gives you a great experience for your vacation investment. All units in the Cove rental group are required to advertise the same rates as shown on the Cove website honokeana-cove dot com, so you can choose your unit based on its location and its amenities. The current ground-floor one-bedroom rates are:

Regular Season (April 16 - December 15):

$179.00/nt for 1 - 9 nights

$170.05/nt for 10 -27 nights

$161.10/nt for 28 - 55 nights

$152.15/nt for 56 nights or more.

Peak Season (December 16 - April 15):

$199.00/nt for 1 - 9 nights

$189.05/nt for 10 -27 nights

$169.15/nt for 56 nights or more.

Add 5% to nights December 16, 2015 and later.

LAST-MINUTE SPECIAL! If you book within 60 days of check-in, you may rent at a 20% discount from the daily rate. This discount may not be combined with the long-stay discount and is not available to travel agents. The online booking system is not able to give you this discount: to get this special rate you must PHONE the rental office directly.

These rates are for two persons. For additional guests (up to a maximum of 4), add $10 per night per person. To all reservations, add $95 check-in cleaning plus Hawaii occupancy tax of 13.42%. There's no resort fee, and no charge for parking or Internet or for your room safe.

PRICE GUARANTEE – once you book your reservation, your rate is guaranteed, even if prices later go up! And, if your plans change, you can cancel with only a $50 fee up to 60 days ahead, except Christmas and New Years.

ATTRACTIONS. If you tire of swimming, snorkeling and sunning, other activities are nearby. A long sandy public beach at Napili Bay is 5 minutes walk. The Gazebo Restaurant with its famous Macadamia Pancakes is just as close. And if you don't feel like driving or walking the half mile to the 'big' grocery (Napili Market), there's a small grocery (Napili General Store) and snorkel shop (Snorkel Bob’s) just 7 minutes walk away.

Of course, you will want to use your rental car to enjoy Maui's many attractions. Active guests may enjoy the Kapalua and Kaanapali championship golf courses, tennis courts, biking and hiking, snorkel and scuba, ocean fishing, horseback riding, zipline adventures, challenging surfing (visible from your lanai!) and more. Those who prefer to relax will find good shopping in Lahaina (don't miss the free shows at Lahaina Cannery Mall put on by the children's hula classes), the famous Hana Drive, the Maui Ocean Center (aquarium), Iao Needle state park and perhaps a whale watching trip (in season) with Pacific Whale Foundation.

'ALOHA' WELCOME. Su and Crystal, our full time rental office staff, and Greg, our resident manager, are close at hand if you need any supplies or local information.

The Cove is a friendly place, with many regular guests, and many new guests too. Every Wednesday we organize a 'pupu party' with appetizers brought by those who wish to participate. It's a great way to meet new friends and feel part of the Honokeana Cove 'family'. But no one will mind if you just want to be on your own and relax - it's completely up to you.

We know you'll find Honokeana Cove, and unit 114, to be the best value on Maui, a wonderful place for a memorable Hawaiian vacation. Come visit us soon!

You have many options for booking. If you have the time to phone our on-site Rental Office at (800) 237-4948 or (808) 669-6441, we'd love to hear from you! It's open 9-12 and 1-5 Hawaii Time (2 hours earlier than Pacific Time in the winter, 3 hours earlier in the summer). The office has the latest calendar, and can block dates for you for a day or two while you firm up your other plans. You may book online here using the 'Book It' button, or directly at You may also click the 'Email manager' button, which sends an e-mail directly to the Rental Office. Be sure to ask for Unit 114. If you have questions or need more info, feel free to speak directly with us: (313) 378-0262.

Mahalo and Aloha!

About Art & Nola Chester (Owners)

We live in Southeast Michigan and have roots in Southern California and the New York City area. Now we are mostly retired; previously, Art was a research lab director (see and Nola worked at General Motors. Our neighbors in Malibu had been coming to Honokeana Cove for many years and they persuaded us to give it a try. We loved it immediately! Nicer and more personal than the big resort hotels where we used to vacation. Instead of a mile walk from the parking lot and a mile walk down the hall to your room, at the Cove we can walk off our lanai and we’re “right there” – into the swimming pool, or into the ocean. And swimming with those giant turtles is a unique, almost spiritual experience. We are happy to be able to share this special place with you! Art and Nola Chester

Art & Nola Chester (Owners) purchased this condo in 2003

Why Art & Nola Chester (Owners) chose Napili

We love the Napili area for its low-rise, “Old Hawaii” feeling, and we love Honokeana Cove for its small size, its friendliness, and its superbly landscaped grounds. When Unit 114 became available, we immediately wanted to buy it. Why? Because it’s on the ground floor, you can use your lanai as your “front door”, so you’re not always running up and down stairs. Because it’s centrally located, facing West, with a completely unobstructed view of lawn, pool, Cove and sunsets. And because it’s in the center building, which gets sun and afternoon breezes. We update appliances or furniture almost every year. You will find the condo crisp and clean, with sparkling tile and stone, plus Hawaiian fabrics and prints. There's a big ceramic turtle on the wall of our lanai, in honor of the even bigger ones that live in the Cove.

What makes this condo unique

Napili is a great location when visiting Maui, the most beautifully varied of all the Hawaiian islands. It’s a 7 minute drive to the West Maui airport (JHM), or you can also fly in and out of the “big” airport in Kahului (OGG), 55 minutes away. Napili is a quiet location between the big resorts of Kaanapali and Kapalua. You can easily get to those places when you want to shop, play golf or tennis, or visit a special restaurant, but you don’t have to put up with their crowds the rest of the time. Honolua Bay, D T Fleming beach, and the uncrowded northwest coast are just minutes to the north. Lahaina Town, with its bustle and excitement, is just as close to the south.

In all of Napili, we believe that Honokeana Cove is the very best spot! It is a small gated compound of 38 low-rise units gathered around a private cove. The Cove has wonderful snorkeling, with tropical fish, coral gardens and plenty of giant Sea Turtles. Just outside the Cove, visible from your lanai, is one of West Maui’s top surfing spots, where you will see local surfers showing their skills. And if you want a sandy beach for variety, Napili Bay, one of Maui’s most beautiful, is just 5 minutes walk (¼ mile) to the north.

Thank you Nola and Art for allowing us to stay in your tastefully decorated, updated unit. We had three wonderful weeks in your 'home'. I say this because it did feel like home with all your added amenities right down to the wonderful a/c in the bedroom. Came in handy as there was an unexpected heat wave the entire three weeks in Sept. 2014. The unit was clean, the grounds well maintained constantly. There was 24/7 management on duty unlike another place we visited on another island. We would definitely recommend this unit.

Plenty of snorkeling equipment for those enthusiasts. Close to local attractions yet secluded away from the commercialism. Just a nice and calming environment.

The owners are wonderful people who keep in constant contact with answers to any of your questions.

Mahalo and Aloha Nola and Art.......We can't thank you enough for making our first trip to Hawaii a magical one!

Owner's Response: Aloha Roz, Mahalo for your review, we're delighted that you had a good visit despite the heat. Yes, our A/C comes in handy and we use it whenever we visit. It adds to our sleep comfort and covers any outside sounds. You were wise to plan a long visit since your travel time must be even more than ours from Michigan. We love Honokeana Cove and hope to welcome you again for a visit soon! Please book as far ahead as you can, because #114 gets very busy some times of the year. Warm wishes, and much Aloha - Art & Nola Chester

Relaxing and quiet spot....with Turtles!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a very relaxing stay at this very comfortable condo. They have everything you need there including snorkel gear, beach chairs and a great selection of books about everything, hikes, quilts and guides. The cove is a great place to snorkel and being able to swim with turtles everyday is fantastic! It is a short walk to famous Napili Bay without all the crowds and commotion...very quiet and restful place.

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Thanks for such a great condo to stay in Art and Nola! My wife and daughters and I enjoyed our stay very much. The condo was remodeled beautifully and we loved the fully-stocked kitchen. We saved so much money by not having to eat out every meal. The location was a gem. The cove is like a secret hideaway. We would love to come back and swim some more with all the turtles! Can't say enough about all the amenities you have provided. Hope to be back soon, thanks again! -The Liggetts.

When the turtles start calling you again, please contact us directly and we'll be delighted to put you into our schedule for #114. But do plan ahead for the best dates, the Cove is getting discovered! Mahalo and Aloha - Art & Nola

This was our first time in Maui.and we were not disappointed.The moment we drove in we knew we were in for a great time.The manger Su is very friendly and really made us feel welcomed.We loved the unit!! Art and Nola have thought of everything from the many kitchen gadgets to the library of books about the island. It is so comfortable and homey with a view to die for! The property is private and very beautiful with the water just steps away.The snorkeling was amazing there are so many turtles and fish in the cove.There are several places within walking distance to go eat our favorite being the Gazebo. We had the best vacation ever and can not wait to return.

We feel lucky to have Su with her great “Aloha” spirit, and happy we can share such a beautiful spot with you. We look forward to welcoming you back to Honokeana #114! - Art & Nola

Can't beat the snorkeling. Everything as promised, and then some!!

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable, even with the kids on the pull-out in the living room; felt like home within the first couple of days. Great management, too.

Saw turtles every day; even if you prefer to stay dry, you can see them pop up all over the cove, especially at night; but the real experience is to walk the 50 steps to the water and snorkel around the cove. It never took more than 30 minutes (usually just 5) to see one floating by or see them rest half-hidden under large rocks at the bottom. If a sand beach is your thing, just walk the 5 mins to Napili next door, but I wouldn't trade this very private spot for any of the larger resorts directly on Napili.

Also great for whale-watching during the winter. Tons of spouts and splashes, though a 2-hr cruise from Lahaina (20 mins South) will get you closer to the whales.

Highly recommended. We'll be back as soon as we can scrape the funds together, or find a sponsor :).
