This special retreat is uniquely located in a quiet corner of the resort. Enjoy the spacious feeling of 11 ft ceilings and 1,100 sq ft of living space, covering 2 master suites and an open living room and kitchen floor-plan. Over sized sliding doors open to an ample lanai, bordering your own private lawn area – totaling 740 sq ft. From there it is a short stroll down a beautifully manicured walkway to the beach, passing pools and BBQ area on the way. You can enjoy the extra space by pulling your lawn furniture out far enough to enjoy the glimmering ocean. Surrounded by beautiful Hawaiian vegetation, the back yard is the most private at Honua Kai due to the exceptional landscaping. You will feel like you are in your own tropical garden, because you are!

Honua Kai is one of the newest and most exciting resort in West Maui, completed in March 2010. It is beautifully landscaped with lush tropical gardens and swaying palms. Take time to enjoy all the features of the 3 naturally landscaped pools, hot tubs, BBQs, Maui’s only Duke’s Beachside Restaurant and the world famous Ka’anapali North Beach just steps beyond.

========== Info on Starwood Development at the next lot ==========

-Updates as of 2/27/15

From Carlos Rivera, Project Manager of Starwood Design & Development Team:

~Sitework and excavation began on Tuesday 2/17/15

~The earthwork is currently ongoing and the dirt pile closest to Honua Kai will be moved to the south end of the site in the next couple of weeks. Earthwork and grading activities will continue to mid-April.

~Tower cranes will be erected at the beginning of May 2015.

~The County noise ordinance allows for construction activities to be performed 7:00AM-6:00PM Monday through Friday and 9:00AM - 6:00PM Saturday (Except Sundays And Holidays) however current construction activities will be performed 8:00am-6:00pm Monday - Friday, (with some Saturdays as needed) to minimize impact on neighbors.

- Updates as of 2/17/15

We learned that they will work from 8:00am to 4:30 pm and aren't working on Sundays*. Also to control dust as they move dirt, they will keep water on the dirt.

*see 2/27/15 update for the updated working hours

- Update as of 2/13/15 (from our Honua Kai General Manager, Rick Tanner.)

'We want to update you on recent activity on Lot 3: the property to our south (behind the big green wall that runs the length of the entrance to our property and beside the Hokulani tower). This property belongs to Starwood, the builder and operator of Ka’anapali Ocean Resorts (KOR).

Starwood has acquired all necessary permits from the County to begin construction of a new Starwood timeshare project (under the Westin brand), with construction starting in 2015.

It is our understanding that:

(I) The project will consist of 8 buildings, each consisting of 6 floors and a total 390 units as well as 2 parking garages providing approximately 800 stalls. We have more to learn.

(II) Starwood has signed a general contractors contract with Hawaii Dredging and ground preparation will begin in earnest the week of February 16th.

(III) Ground preparation will consist of moving the large mound of soil form the north end of Lot 3 to the south end.

(VI) A traditional Hawaiian blessing for the project will be held on February 17th. This will not be open to the public.

We will continue to provide updates as we acquire new information. We expect to provide an additional update by the 1st week of March.'

About Mimi K.

We are a young family living in the SF bay area. My husband grew up in Europe and I grew up in Asia and we decided to raise our family in the U.S.

Mimi K. purchased this condo in 2013

Why Mimi K. chose Kaanapali

We have lived and have traveled all over the world for many years. There is nothing quite like the Hawaiian islands, and within Hawaii we just fell in love with Maui as it has the perfect blend of natural beauty, excitement, and amenities.

We stayed at the Honua Kai for just one week in early 2013 and loved it so much that we decided to buy this unit right then and there. The resort is by far the newest beachfront property on Kanaapali and among the newest in all of Maui, ranked #2 in West Maui and #4 in all of Maui by TripAdvisor. We believe it is the perfect luxurious and yet laid back family vacation spot in paradise, offering fully equipped spacious condos with full four-star resort amenities.

What makes this condo unique

- Very private setting within resort

- Ground floor unit with spacious lanai and own private lawn

- Special tropical landscaping around lawn provide added privacy

- Short stroll down to the beach

- Similarly easy access to pools, Koi pond for morning fish feedings (great fun for kids), BBQ areas, etc

Guestbook comments from the owner

My family and I had a fantastic time. Our only complaint was that we should have stayed longer!



The unit was perfect for our family. Well stocked with everything we needed. My 19month toddler loved being able to run out the lanai and onto the boardwalk without taking the elevator. No complaints whatsoever.

Scratch this experience off my bucket list

  • 5 of 5

Wow, if all my bucket list items were so spectacular! The condo was everything advertised and more. It was spacious, clean, quiet and had everything we needed and even some things we didn't. We felt really safe in and around the premises. The front lanai was enjoyed every morning and evening. Although there was construction starting next door, they didn't start early and most of our day was spent on daily walks, enjoying the pools and the ocean beach or sight-seeing. By the time we returned in the late afternoon, construction was winding down. I would definitely recommend this condo. It took me 57 years to make it to Hawaii for the first time but this experience was so enjoyable, my next visit will much sooner. Mimi was so accommodating and was very good about communicating with us from start to finish. We appreciated her quickness in identifying changing variables and her honesty. We had our kids with us, they are adults but still our kids and there was more than enough room to accommodate all five of us. The grounds are exquisite and the staff at the establishment and at the pool were great, friendly, and jovial. We made continuous use of the barbecues available on the site and they were clean and looked brand new. We had all the meals when at the condo on the lanai. The weather we experienced in Hawaii was fantastic- clear, sunny and little rain. Hated to leave and return to -30 degree temperatures!

Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

Very beautiful condo. We traveled with another couple so having two master suites made it very comfortable. The condo was clean and well equipped! The unit is on the side of the building with only steps away from the beach and very, very quiet with not a lot of traffic walking by! Loved, loved, loved our stay at Honua Kai. The experience was absolutely lovely!!

Wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I are staying in this condo for over a week. It is simply gorgeous. The building is very quiet and we felt very safe as two ladies traveling alone. We enjoyed having two master suites complete with luxurious, private bathrooms. The kitchen is fully equipped with all utensils, dishes, and cooking implements that you might ever need. The appliances all appear to be brand-new and sparkling clean. The condo is very comfortable and was immaculately clean. We particularly enjoy the wall of glass doors that opens fully while being completely screened; we are enjoying the cool night breeze through the patio doors as I write this review.

This would be a great place for two couples to stay, or for a family. There is a closet full of nice beach chairs and accessories, and plenty of beach towels. Don't worry if you run out; there is a washer and dryer in the unit. The unit is on the side of the building, but it truly is just steps from the beach. There is a great restaurant, Duke's, on site and we've had several nice dinners there. In addition, Whaler's Village and Lahaina are just a short drive away.

We found the owners to be very responsive to all of our communications and highly recommend this condo.

Sweet condo!

  • 5 of 5

We were fortunate enough to be able to enjoy living in this condo for ten days. It was remarkably perfect. It is well furnished. The beds are very comfy. It is roomy. I appreciated having the laundry facilities right there in the condo. The groundfloor location was a big plus. I was a bit hesitant about the ground floor when we booked, but we all ( family of five ) loved having the ground floor. Just a few steps from the back lanai is a wonderful sidewalk leading to parking, or the other direction, to the beach and the boardwalk that offers miles of excellent walking conditions for exercise or to access restaurants and shopping. Because of the lovely landscaping when you are on the lanai, you feel like it's your own private backyard, even though the sidewalk is nearby. The owners were so helpful and easy to work with. Their manager, Monte, was friendly and made himself available at ANY time if we should have questions or needs. We would definitely stay in this unit again!

Fabulous Condo for Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this condo. The Honua Kai resort is great - beautiful setting, fun pools, Duke's onsite, family friendly, etc. The condo is on the ground floor level with a huge patio. Perfect for kids. It is also has a very convenient location to the resort pools and beach. The condo is roomy and was plenty big for 4 adults and 2 small children. It is stocked with anything you could need for kids which was a big plus since we have a 5 year old and 18 month old. Mimi, the owner, was absolutely wonderful to work with. She was so responsive to all my questions! Once at the resort, Monty the property manager was always available to answer any questions & requests. I highly recommend this condo and can't wait to return!

Perfect stay in every way

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 7 night stay on this gorgeous property.

Firstly, we loved the condo. It was cozy, very clean and spacious. The kitchen has everything that you would ever need if you prefer to cook and dine in. Inside the closet, there were so many beach toys, umbrellas, straw mats that were provided for us to freely use. Bed was super comfortable, water pressure was awesome (I chatted with some other people staying on the same property but different floors, and that was not the case in their condos)

Secondly, the ground floor location is just perfect, with easy access to both the beach and the pools. No waiting for the elevator (especially when you are still wet from your water activity, or tired from a long day) The resort market place is steps away from the condo, adding to the convenience.

Last but not least, the resort property itself is gorgeous. There is everything that you can ask for. Several pools and hot tubs, aquatic playground that the kids will really enjoy, two restaurants, spa, and fitness center. Let's just say you will not run out of activities to do!

We truly enjoyed our stay and will recommend anyone to this particular unit. We will be back!!
