Honua Kai Luxury Resort - HokuLani 112

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 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.

About Mimi Kim

We are a young family of three living in the SF bay area. We consider ourselves true 'citizens of the world' in that we are a husband of Korean heritage who grew up in Germany and recently became a US citizen, a Taiwanese-American wife, and a 3 yr old daughter who is growing up trying to cope with 4 languages.

Mimi Kim purchased this condo in 2013

Why Mimi Kim 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

We had a wonderful time at Honua Kai! I've been going to Maui for 10 years and this was the best trip I've had! I was able to paddle board everyday, and it was perfect to be able to just walk straight to the beach with my board!!



Thank you so much!

Great family vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5
We had the most amazing time at this property! As we were leaving, we were already discussing when we should return next time. The property met all of our needs. We are so happy that the unit was on the first floor where it was so easy to go everywhere since we have little kids. We've spent a lot of time at the pools and on the beach. It was so nice to be able to walk to the beach!

Having 2 separate rooms was very convenient. We felt right at home as soon as we arrived and we cooked and ate in almost every meal. It was also very nice to have the beach chairs, boogie boards, and sand toys available in the closet. This other couple we met on the beach couldn't believe that these were all available with the room. They were just thinking of going to Costco to pick up a couple of chairs after finding out it costed $10 per chair if you rent it through the resort.

Monty, the property manager, was very attentive and responsive! We recommend this property to everyone, but especially to those families with small kids like us.

Lovely spot

  • 4 of 5
We stayed in this unit for a week. It was on the main floor of Honua Kai. While it lacked a beach view, it was quiet, private, easy to get to and wonderful to have the lawn to step out to. The beach was easy to get to and the pool too. We did like being away from the center of the complex.It was well stocked with beach supplies. It was very clean and the furniture was nice. One reason I wouldn't give it five stars was the lack of lighting in the bathrooms. The light bulbs were low wattage LEDs and one of the bulbs was burned out. I would suggest that they use better bulbs. We would stay here again.

Best Vacation Stay Ever!

  • 5 of 5
This resort is by far one of the best we've ever stayed in! This ground floor condo was GREAT!! The lanai was so roomy and just a walk to the beach from here. No need to enter into the building or wait for an elevator every time you left the room. The snorkeling right off the beach here was awesome and with so much sea life to see including turtles. My kids loved it! For such a big resort we were surprised on how it wasn't as crowded as we would expect. Always a place to sit by the pool or on the beach. Monty, the property manager, was such a nice guy and only a phone call away! We are highly recommending this condo #112 to all of our friends and family. We would definitely stay here again!

Maui June Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our stay, proximity to to the beach and resort pool was easy. In suite amenities were very well maintained, clean, and operable. Property manager "Monty" was very attentive and periodically checked in. The view from the lanai was good, but not ocean view. However, it was very private and quiet with no pool traffic or noise. A trade-off we appreciated. We felt very safe, allowed our kids to roam the grounds. Parking was easy. On-site concierge service was knowledgable and helpful in booking activities. The unit can be a bit dark in the bathrooms for make-up application, so be sure and find the small vanity. Finally, the owners were very responsive to our emails and follow-up. Overall, we would rent the unit again without hesitation.

Graduation trip

  • 5 of 5
We booked this unit for our daughter's graduation trip. There were 6 of us total and we fit nicely. It was great having a full kitchen since we cooked all meals. We bought 3 cheap umbrellas at Walmart and left them in the closet. Rented snorkel gear for the week across the street at Ukalene's and they offered us umbrellas too which was nice. We had a great time. Mimi was very responsive via email and the onsite property manager was also very accessible if needed. Hope you all enjoy your trip as much as we enjoyed ours!

So impressed with this toddler-friendly unit!

  • 5 of 5
I picked this unit on VRBO because of all of the "kid friendly reviews", the resort, and the fact it was on the ground floor. I have to say, it was even better than we expected!

First off, the Honua Kai resort is lovely. Great pools, beach access, great restaurant (Duke's), and an awesome gourmet market that will drain your wallet. And you won't care because you'll be too full of gelato and fancy side dish salads to care. Seriously, we got gelato every single night. YUM.

The unit was perfect for our young kids - PERFECT. I want to mention this, because I was looking for a review like this when I searched for a Maui condo. Our kids were 20 months and 3 1/2 yrs on our trip, and this was THE UNIT for us. We rented a crib from a local company to put in the room with my mom, and the 3 yr old shared the bed with Nana. Bonus is that the kids now share a bedroom since returning from vacation, they liked it so much.

With 2 huge bedrooms, 2 full baths, and the common room, it was a nice amount of space for the 5 of us. I thought at the time it would also be perfect for 2 couples w/o kids....maybe a future trip :)

Stocked with everything you need for kids: cups/plates/silverware, baby/toddler ring style floaty for the pool, toilet seat/potty training adaptor. We also used the booster seat for the baby, and if she wasn't so picky, would have used the included pack n play instead of renting a crib.

Ground floor unit, so no problem for them outside, and more space than a unit with just a balcony. High ceilings made it feel even more spacious. Kitchen is FULLY stocked, even grill tools for the communal BBQs on resort.

Also, the unit is located at the front of the building, so very close to the lobby if you rent a car, and very close to the Aina Market. Ahem.

LOTS of sand and pool toys: noodles, boogie boards, baby ring floaty thing, beach chairs, snorkel masks, beach balls, straw mat for beach, basket of sand toys. The closet was completely packed.

I met and spoke with other guests with kids about their units, and they would tell me how they had everything. Then I told them what we had and their jaws always dropped.

I hate to give away the secret, but if you have young kids, look no further!!

For the area in general, the aquarium and sugar cane train were big hits, worth the money. Shaved ice at Ululani's in Lahaina - tried other places but it really was the best! Resort is very close to several grocery stores.
