Honokowai Condo Rental Photos and Description

Ocean front 2 Bedroom /2 Bathroom Sleeps 4-5

Direct ocean front: this amazing condo sits just 40 feet from the ocean with 180 degree panoramic ocean views looking out to the neighboring islands of Molokai and lanai. Renovations were completed September 2013.

The two bedrooms are private with a king bed in the master and queen in 2nd bedroom. The master suite has a 32' tv, desk area, and a separate dressing area from the walk in shower. The second bedroom has a queen bed.

In winter and early spring you can watch the whales right from your two private lanais- one off the living room and one off the master bedroom. Enjoy your morning coffee while reading a good book in a lounge chair on the grassy ocean front lawn or watch the turtles feed from the reef in front while having an afternoon cocktail on your lanai. You are in the perfect location to see every beautiful maui sunset! You will be lulled to sleep with the sounds of the ocean waves and wake up to a most amazing view.

The nearly 1000 sq. Foot of island living space boasts high quality furnishings and custom finishes throughout. It is fully furnished for all your vacation needs. The living room has a 42' hd tv with extended cable and complimentary wireless is offered in unit. An i-pod dock allows you to play your favorite music. FREE long distance calls US and Canada.

Your kitchen is fully equipped and ready to prepare your own meals.

Although there are many great snorkeling spots around the island, you can swim and snorkel right out front!

Paki Maui is a small ocean front complex on the west side of Maui conveniently located minutes from the heart of Lahaina town, between Ka'anapali and Kapalua. Right next door is the Honokowai beach park where the kids can enjoy the beach and playground. You are walking distance to farmers' market, grocery stores, restaurants, and a beach front board walk from our condo. You can relax on property your entire vacation and never have to drive anywhere or take advantage of the many things to do on Maui- upscale shopping minutes away at whalers village, hiking the ocean trail in Kapalua, diving, paddle boarding, wine tasting upcountry,& zip lining, just to name a few.

Paki Maui offers guests a small pool, hot tub, and barbeque area including patio area to dine pool side. One unassigned free parking permit given at check-in.

About Owner/Property Manager Ellen Gerl

We fell in love with the tropical feel of Maui from the first time we visited 20 years ago. Last year our two families had the opportunity to purchase a vacation home and there was no question it would be the West side of Maui. Elaine & Chris are from Wisconsin and Ellen & Bob from Oregon. We know you will love our little part of paradise here at Paki Maui 201 while we are on the mainland!

Owner/Property Manager Ellen Gerl purchased this condo in 2012

Why Owner/Property Manager Ellen Gerl chose Honokowai

We narrowed our search to the west side of Maui after spending time in other areas of the island over the last few years. We were excited when we found this unit at Paki Maui. Paki Maui is a small 4 story resort with beautiful ocean front grounds, a tropical garden, pool, hot tub, and barbeque area large enough to entertain. Our unit is directly ocean front with 180 degree unobstructed ocean views looking out at Molokai and Lanai. Having two private bedrooms and two seperate lanais was a big selling point for us. While there are many great snorkeling spots on the island, we love being able to walk right out in front of our unit to snorkel. We enjoy sitting on the lanais in the late afternoon watching the turtles swim and feed off the reef.

What makes this condo unique

*Ocean front grassy lounge area

*Two separate direct ocean front lanais

*views of Molokai and Lanai

*Snorkeling right out front

*Whale watching right from our Lanai at Whale season

*FREE unlimited long distance phone US and Canada

*Walking distance to Farmers Market and restaurants

Guestbook comments from the owner

We certainly enjoyed our stay. Your place is gorgeous and your kitchen is supplied with almost everything one could desire – we didn’t have to buy spices or tools.



The condo is lovely and the recent updates have made it beautiful. The doors and screens work flawlessly. The maid service appeared on schedule and did excellent work.



We were reluctant to rent it again until we had had the opportunity to stay there. Now we wish only that we could have rented it for next February also.



The lawn in front of the building is perfect and there are more than adequate recliners.



We stay ocean front to see the whales and to listen to the surf. We came home with many pictures of humpbacks. The only down side is the intense crashing of waves at high tide. On a few nights we had to close the doors to sleep.

An oasis

  • 5 of 5

The weather gods were not smiling on us for these two weeks in March but this property was still an oasis in a year of considerable turbulence in our family. While we weren't able to swim or snorkel this time we were still able to let the constant ebb and flow of the waves ease our grief over the passing away of a our beloved mother.

We played the wonderful Hawaiian CDs and had plenty of room for 4 adults to relax and enjoy. This unit is very well supplied and people in the building were very friendly and helpful. It is so well located near the fish and farmer's markets and a quick drive into Lahaina or up to Napili and Kaplua. Whale watching from the lanai is an endless spectacle.

While this is not a complaint against the unit, per Še, it was very disappointing that the hot tub was not working much of the time and for the first time ever... We really needed a warm-up.

Owner's Response: I was very moved by your review and am sorry for your loss. I am happy that our beautiful spot on earth helped you through some of your grief. This is the first time we have had hot tub issues and I am truly sorry about that. I am following up to make sure this is resolved. We hope you can return someday. Aloha, Ellen Gerl

Delightful West End Vacation Condo

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a month and had a wonderful time, the condo met all our needs and was tastefully decorated. It's nearness to Times Market and many stores in the surrounding area made it an excellent location. We couldn't get enough of the ocean view, the many whales that you could see breach in the distance and turtles that would feed just out front on the rocks first thing in the morning. It was a relaxing place to enjoy our holiday without the crowds and when we did decide to go to a more crowded beach it was nice to come back and enjoy the quiet on our beach and private sunsets on the Lanai.

Everything was as promised, the condo was clean and beds were comfortable, thank you for sharing your condo it was one of the nicest vacation condos we have stayed in, we can't wait to return.

Aloha,

ME

The PERFECT Maui Condo In Every Possible Way!

  • 5 of 5

We had an incredible stay at this beautiful condo for the last eight nights. The location is perfect for access to the best beaches in West Maui and a great launching pads for all our Maui adventures: The Road to Hana, Kihei, Paia, Lahaina Town, etc. It is also a perfect location if you want to be away from the crowded beaches around Kaanapali, but near enough to walk or drive. The view and snorkeling from the condo was spectacular, and we swam with the sea turtles every day. The kitchen was very well appointed, and met all of our needs for preparing meals. The condo was spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated. You can't go wrong with this choice!

family of 6- loved west maui vacation in this awesome condo!

  • 5 of 5

we have stayed in many condos in hawaii, and have to say that this condo was very comfortable and relaxing w/ a breathtaking ocean front view. what a treat to brew some nice kona coffee (or pick one up from coffee store across the street) and eat a fresh papaya from farmer's market across the way, while watching the sunrise and enjoying many kids tidepooling in low tide in the mornings. we love to snorkel and go all over the island doing so, but had some of our best snorkeling right OUT FRONT OF THE CONDO, seeing many beautiful tropical fish and many TURTLES. the amenities and space and double balconies, with cozy and authentic tropical decor, made this visit quite enjoyable and we highly recommend such to all wanting a romantic or beautiful maui get a way. it is conveniently located close to lahaina, kanaapali, napili (one of our favorite snorkel spots) and kapalua. the grassy area below balcony and lounge chairs encouraged relaxation, and the pool area was perfect to wind down the day. we left and went on the the Grand Wailea for a conference and have to say, we MUCH PREFERRED THE CONDO over the 5 star resort!!! thank you for sharing your condo w/ us and much aloha for all the fine touches. the ocean breeze and hearing the waves at night lulled us to sleep and the fans throughout the condo cooled the balmy weather. mahalo for your beautiful condo in honokawai. we can't wait to come visit soon! aloha!

Happy Family

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful condo. What you see on VRBO is exactly what you get. We loved the decor. Every thing was very clean. I'm not sure if you could find a room closer to the ocean. The location and the view was fantastic. The condo is in an older building, but the property was very well maintained. There was fantastic snorkeling right there behind the condo. We saw turtles and lots of fish! I highly recommend this condo, and hope to stay there again. My family had a great time!!!!!

Owner's Response: We are very happy that your family enjoyed our condo on your trip to Maui. You are right about the snorkeling- you can even watch your family and friends snorkeling while sitting on the lanai! Thank you for the review. Ellen

Perfect. Book it now if they have your dates.

  • 5 of 5

The perfect way to stay on Maui! My wife and 10 year old daughter stayed for seven nights. It was the ideal home base for all the activities we did on Maui. This unit is perhaps the best location in the entire complex based on its floor and being centered for great views.

Every evening was a new sunset, watching turtles feed right out front and listening to the waves. Working with Ellen and Elaine was great. Thanks for keeping in touch before and during our stay.

The remodeling makes the unit feel like it was a new build. Everything you could need is there including some beach supplies, washer dryer and a completely equipped kitchen. Keeping the cross breeze going was important as you had no air or heat but we never found it uncomfortable. Every room has a ceiling fan to keep it just right.

We only had three people but this place could handle two adult couples or a few kids with ease.

There are two breakers in the water in front of the unit. First one is close to the retaining wall but has a sandy spot you can walk through. Between the first and the second breaker is a great swimming and snorkeling area with no waves and a mix of sand and coral.

The property sits in an area that is more residential then tourist. You will not feel like you are in a tourist area. Coffee shop, gas station, fresh fish deli and an organic market are all right on the block. Just a few blocks down is a great grocery story and strip mall so you really have everything you need so close.

You will find out quickly that visiting Maui can be expensive. Between the tourist attractions and the little things like groceries you will often feel the high cost of Maui. Renting this unit was the best value of all on our trip. It met all of our expectations and made the trip feel special being that close to the water.

My only wish is that we could go back every year.
