About Mike & Stephanie
We love to vacation and relax on MAUI! We have been coming to Maui since the 1980's. We wanted to create our own vacation home-away-from-home and share it with our friends!
Mike & Stephanie purchased this Condo in 2006
Why Mike & Stephanie chose Honokowai
The West Side of Maui has a lot of great beaches! And we are close to Lahaina - fantastic seaside town with many great restaurants, clubs, shops, and art galleries! The weather on the west side is also the best! We chose the Honokowai Palms as it is a small comfortable complex and is conveniently located to shops, restaurants, and Maui's adventures!

Nice rental and great price!
We really enjoyed our time at this clean, cute rental. It had many amenities that we found essential such as the kitchen and supplies for cooking. We were a family of 6 and though it was tight for sleeping, we appreciated the extra space and kitchen at a fraction of the cost of a hotel/resort. The owners were quick to respond to any questions or issues we faced and things were quickly taken care of. With 3 teenagers we loved the free wi-fi and Netflix capabilities, especially on the rainy days we had. There is a beach across the street. It was not great for swimming, but it was nice to explore, whale watch (we saw some huge whales completely breaching the water there), and watch the sunset. We used the covered area to grill twice during the week- the communal gas grill was out of gas, but we didn't mind buying/using charcoal. The laundry facility was close to the unit and had large machines that would dry bulky things quickly. We were able to save hundreds of dollars by utilizing the kitchen for most of our meals and this allowed us to do more expeditions around the island without breaking the bank. The A/C units would cool the two bedrooms down very quickly, but they did not push much air into the tv room or kitchen area. There were only a few times that the front room got warm, especially when cooking. We don't have A/C in our regular house and don't really miss it, but we certainly did appreciate the A/C units in this unit. The dedicated parking spot right in front of the unit came in handy after a long day out and about around the island. We were fortunate to meet the next door neighbor that had owned there for years. He was super informative about events going on around the island, places to go and things to do. Thanks Mike and Stephanie!
Small, quiet, out of “tourist zone” and everything you need!
Our family of 5 stayed at this incredibly reasonably priced condo for 18 days. It’s small, but still managed to cater to our needs. We are a very busy family who like to sight see, take in the many sporting offers Maui has... surfing, snorkelling, skimboarding, boogie boarding, swimming, and we loved people watching, driving, and shopping! The condo was supplied with beach towels, sand toys, a boogie board, 2 coolers, beach chairs, and umbrellas for our outings. We purchased a second cheap body board and skimboards for our stay which was a better savings than renting for 2 weeks. We did rent snorkelling gear for the duration as well. We ate every breakfast and packed lunches at the condo and ate most nights out. The pool was super quiet, most often we were the only ones swimming, mostly because we did early morning and evening swim times and the condos have permanent residents that don’t seem to use the pool often. Although the units have a communal laundry room, there was always a laundry machine available. It’s very close to Times Market, an ABC store, gas station, a few shopping/souvenir shops, and some great strip mall food outlets... Ohana Tacos, Pizza Paradiso, and the “mobile wood fired pizza street stand” were great for quick stops. There’s a health food store and a farmer’s market open 3 days a week right next door... the Israeli bread and homemade hummus is authentic and delish. There’s a park good for younger kids across the street and a beach for watching sunsets... no real swimming, but some snorkelling and it’s great for little ones who want to splash around... we had the chance to encounter a Hawaiian Monk Seal sunning itself one morning! There are great beaches within 15 minutes in both north and south directions... want great waves for body boarding and some semi-calm reef with snorkelling, head to north to Napili... great snorkelling north at Honolua, but no beach... Kapalua in between these 2 combines calm snorkelling with great beach. South head to Ka’anapali... TONS of beach space, great for snorkeling, skim boarding, boogie boarding, and swimming! Cool restaurants and has hotels, that you’d pay quadruple to stay at are only 15 minutes away. This beach when busy is still NEVER crowded! We toured the ENTIRE island and put many miles on our rental vehicle, but if that’s not your thing, you can still enjoy this condo and West Maui 100% at a fraction of the cost of resorts throughout the island!
We loved it!!!It felt like we were home, and it was so nice to have dishes and silverware. Thank you
We will definitely be back to rent from Home Away again. It had all the comforts of home. The location was perfect, easy access to the beach and Farmers Market. Thanks for everything. Genese Simler from Kamiah, Id and Jeff Kiely from Clarkston, Washington
Great Experience Here in Honokowai Pams!
This little 2 bedroom vacation condo was awesome! It fit all of us quite comfortably, and we loved the convenience of its location right across from the beach and near to the Farmer's Market. Mike and Stephanie were quick to respond to any questions we had, and ensured that our experience was positive to the very end. I certainly recommend this place if you are on the Westside of Maui!!!
Great Location, Great owners
Overall the experience earned five stars. Booking communications went well, we try to ask questions of the owners ahead of time, sort of a test to see whether they care. These owners definitely do-great to deal with. They provided us with good info for our trip, and recommended fun things to do. Arrival, parking and condo access were all easy.
Condo grounds are older, but nice. If you're looking for a resort experience, that won't be found here. Pool was nice, whenever we used it we were the only ones there. Grilling area nice, under a large tree. Just looked at the photos again; to be fair the only difference I see is that there is one small ice chest supplied, the big blue one wasn't there, and there is only one bedside light in the master. Everything else is as you see it. It is small, but adequate for our needs (place to fix meals and sleep only, we're not there to cave-dwell!) There were two boogie boards and two beach chairs in the master closet, and the small ice chest was in the pantry.
Kitchen supplies were all fine, could use a couple cheap mixing bowls (we had to improvise but our corn muffins turned out ok.) Oven and stove worked well, the pans & pots were in good supply. Coffee maker & toaster didn't work, but to demonstrate the responsiveness, owner had new replacements delivered soon after I reported. We didn't use the air conditioners until the last couple nights when the cool breeze was lacking so we couldn't open windows, and both units were very efficient.
Location of this place can't be beat, there is a nice, health food store type farmers market nearby, the beach park across the street is nice, did see a few bums there but also families so it is just like the parks back home. The beach at the park isn't good for swimming, big reef/lava rock shelves, but I did see people fishing there.
The owner was accessible, and easy to deal with. We would stay here again-the location and the owners' participation made the trip a great one.
OK at best
We have been to Maui 4 times and always try cheap places as we believe the time in the room is time not in Hawaii. The owners were awesome to deal with to start. Secondly the two bedroom is a cute condo with everything you need. If you have 2 couples going make sure to only have one car. There is no parking for a second car and anywhere near the condos is towing areas. The A/C in the master bedroom only blew hot air which made a couple nights uncomfortable.The BBQ area was awesome and we spent 2 nights grilling at the area. It is clean and quiet and def a place to stay on a budget. My only real issues were the A/C and the parking . The beach across the street is a great sunset beach, the rock shelves make swimming not worth the walk. We would stay here again if the A/C was fixed and we went alone or with just the children
Aloha James - Thank you for your stay & comments. We have 1 reserved parking space per unit. Please let us know in advance if you are traveling with 2 cars (Initial booking only stated 3 adults). If we know ahead of time we can often make accommodations – after you arrive limits what we can arrange. We have replaced the AC unit with a new 10,000 btu unit that really cools the unit down nicely. We are glad you enjoyed the area & would consider staying again with us. We look forward to your returning to Maui!
