OCEANFRONT GROUNDFLOOR CONDO: STEPS FROM LANAI TO OCEAN!

Honokowai Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2 comfortably)

The views from this OCEANFRONT unit are breathtaking, with the azure ocean and sunsets over sister islands, Lanaii and Molokai. Step off your lanai and you are only 25 feet from the ocean! Located in the Kuleana resort, enjoy a taste of old Hawaii with it’s tropical beauty and unsurpassable views. It is considered one of the most beautiful oceanfront properties on West Maui, offering quiet, luxury living in paradise. Seasonal humpback whale watching is available directly from your lanai! In addition, watch the multitude of sea turtles, other sea life such as dolphins, manta rays, eagle rays and monk seals, and surfers right outside your door. The property has two beaches and a sea ladder, all providing easy entry into the crystal clear ocean for snorkeling in the private snorkel cove, surfing, paddle boarding, boogie boarding (yes, the waves are good!), kayaking or simply relaxing in the water. A coral reef exists straight out from the property, enhancing the snorkeling, surfing, kayaking, and boogie boarding activities. Fishing is also popular from the beaches and the ladder.

The unit is remodeled and well-decorated in tropical designs. Fans are located in the living room and bedroom. The living room has an L-shaped, 12 foot sofa with direct oceanfront views. The kitchen has a bar counter with seating for four, looking out to the ocean as well. The bedroom has a california king size bed and is equipped with an air conditioner. The kitchen has all the amenities of home. The bathroom has a glass block, walk in shower with room enough for two. WI-FI and cable TV are also included.

The grounds, nearly 4 acres in size, are second to none on West Maui. They contain a myriad of meticulously manicured, lavish vegetation along with paths on which to stroll the property. There is a large, heat-controlled pool at which to sun, swim, and relax. Barbeques reside at the ocean’s edge, providing an unsurpassed setting for cooking while watching the sunset. There are a multitude of on-site activities in which to enjoy. Tennis and shuffleboard courts reside on-site. An open air lobby offers ping pong, an extensive library for your reading pleasure, and has a concierge for booking your luaus and sightseeing trips.

Nearby activities are abundant, and one can enjoy the island without even renting a car! The property is within walking distance of the famous Kaanapali Beach with its fantastic restaurants, shopping, and beach-going activities. There are also many local restaurants, a farmer’s market, grocery stores and a multitude of beach parks. The Maui bus stops right in front of the property and will take you all over the island for a mere $8 per day.

We know many others that own vacation units at this property, so if you want to bring others along, they can be accommodated as well.

I am a software engineer from San Jose, California. I have many hobbies including on road and off road motorcycle riding, hiking, swimming, snorkeling, fishing, photography, and cooking. Maui is the perfect place to enjoy all of these activities. Being only a 5 hour flight away, Maui has become an ideal vacation getaway for me.

The Owner purchased this condo in 1997

On my first visit to Maui, I stayed at the Kuleana Resort. I quickly discovered that I loved the island of Maui and wanted to return year after year. After looking at other resorts in the area and what they had to offer, I found that the Kuleana resort was far and above the others, because of the fantastic oceanfront location, the lush tropical grounds, and the magnitude of onsite activities and amenities. I purchased this condo for my personal vacations and to share the Maui experience with others.

Spending time at the Kuleana has become my favorite pastime. Being an avid bbq’er this is the ideal vacation home as it has a full kitchen, a full size fridge/freezer, and four common bbq grills right at the ocean’s edge. I can bbq while watching the amazing sunsets, sailboats passing by, and an array of active sea critters such as the big green sea turtles, manta rays/spotted eagle rays, whales during whale season, and even occasional sightings of dolphins, flying fish, and Hawaiian monk seals. On one occasion I even had the opportunity to bbq a 3 pound octopus I caught spear fishing on the reef just offshore from the condo! I also enjoy simply lazing around, enjoying the beautiful views, sunsets, pool, and gardens.

My husband and I stayed at Neil's condo for our 10th Anniversary. What a beautiful, serene, awesome location. We preferred staying at "Our Little Hawaiian House" for dinner rather than going out. In fact, we preferred the beach every day rather than sight seeing. It was perfect for what we were looking for--a great mix of uncrowded, beautiful scenery and being close to wherever we wanted to go. We did not use the bbq but plan to when we return next year. Neil provides you with everything you could need. We snorkeled, saw turtles, and a pod of dolphins came by. An amazing location, in a beautiful setting. We never saw more than 8 people at a time on the beach. If you're looking for a big resort, with lots of shopping and lots of people--this is not the place for you. However, if you want peace and quiet this is heaven. Neil is also a very easy owner to work with.

A Short Stay in Paradise

Thank you Neil for letting us say in you beautiful condo. We arrived in later evening after a long day of travelling and opened the door to the lanai to the immediate sound of the ocean's lapping waves, a beautifully warm night and beautiful landscaping accentuated by torches that we later found they lit every night at sunset. It was immediately relaxing and that's how we began our vacation. This location is amazing. It is literally steps from the ocean. We swam, snorkeled, walked along the beach, bogy boarded and just played in the ocean. We saw turtles daily, 2 eels, a sea urchin, numerous types of crabs and oceanic fish and corals. It was fantastic! The sunset on the lanai is amazing! We caught every sunrise and every sunset. The grounds are also immaculate. We did use the pool a couple of times, but preferred the ocean. The barbeques were a nice touch. We cooked a few times and were able to visit with some of the other occupants to catch up on who saw what and who ate where. There are some fantastic restaurants well within driving distance and a great farmers market just down the street. This unit has a private entrance so you can be as social or solitary as you wish. All in all, we had an amazing vacation and enjoyed staying here very much. Thanks again and we hope to come back again very soon!

PERFECT MAUI VACATION 10-22-2013

This was the best vacation ever. The condo is in a great location, close to shopping and many restaurants. We toured the whole island but preferred to be on the beach at the property. It was beautiful. The condo itself was awesome. Right out the back door to the water. Our first day we saw a sea turtle resting on the beach. Each day afterwards we saw several right next to shore! We grilled dinners several times while we were there and made friends from all over the world. The neighbors next door even invited us to a traditional Hawaiian blessing of their new home. Everyone was so friendly! We will definitely recommend this property to our friends and hope to visit again very soon.

Do not listen to last review. They are crazy!!!! I have stayed in places that are more than 3k a night and I love this place!!! Neil is awesome, so friendly, helpful, great property owner!! Where do I start... Hummm. Well I will just list some good stuff..... The grounds are amazing, meticulously maintained, most comfortable bed ever! We went to Grand Wailea... A Waldorf Astoria property. Prob $500 a night. I would choose this condo over that any day. Don't get me wrong... We had a once in a lifetime experience at the spa and I highly recommend it but I would rather stay here... My name is prissy and I go by that. I love the good life! We were supposed to leave Monday and decided to stay another week.... You will not want to go home! A few things I recommend. The feast at lele, awesome luau! Maui air! Scottish mist sunset cruise and a must do!!! Go to the plantation house for breakfast or lunch. I am a lover of eggs Benedict... Perfect! Great views awesome food and good service. We plan on going back before we leave. Also fleetwoods, owned by mick fleetwood, great views cool place they say he is there all the time but he had just left to go on tour.... Steven Tyler was there the night before and performed. We have been two steps behind him the whole trip! Also a must do.... Road to Hana. Everybody we met said don't do it.... Crazy. We loved it! Get the app gypsy maui. Awesome tour guide for 10 bucks!!!!! Again... Best trip ever. Go for it!...... Thanks neil :)

This place is a dive. It was so bad my wife and I ended up shelling out a lot more money finding a better place after only one night. If I could get a refund I would demand it immediately. Where to begin:

1) The only thing going for it is the beachfront location. The other end of the unit where the bedroom is located, however, fronts the street with a lot of traffic noise all night.
2) The appliances are dated.
3) The place isn't just small; it's tiny. Almost every wall is covered by mirrors to give the illusion the unit is bigger than it really is. Very creepy.
4) A/C only in the bedroom. Since the living area faces west, it swelters until after sunset. In order to keep it cool, the drapes and the sunshade must be closed which means the room can't be used.
5) Most importantly and the biggest reason we left, THERE IS NO DOOR SEPARATING THE BEDROOM FROM THE REST OF THE UNIT! It's a sliding pocket door with slats. If you're like us and need separate sleeping accommodations for things like snoring it blocks absolutely none of the sound from the other room.
6) We were not told about needing a parking permit until our car was tagged by the local rent-a-cops.

Basically, this is not a warm, friendly and inviting place. When you stay at a place for vacation it's supposed to be a home away from home. This was definitely not it. Look elsewhere.
