About Louis Trinh

Hi, thank you for taking the time to read our webpage. My wife and I, along with our four kids, live in the suburbs of Atlanta, Georgia. I work at a hospital near us, and my wife, Kristine, takes care of the household. Kristine is Hawaiian, and when we go back to visit family, we usually stay at a hotel. We normally visit Maui twice a year, and since we have outgrown hotel rooms, it just made sense to buy a condo with great amenities so that we feel like we ARE on vacation. We take a lot of pride in keeping our Honua Kai condo perfect and our guests happy. Our condo is filled with amenities to make sure that you are comfortable, and will happily do everything we can to accomodate your needs.

Louis Trinh purchased this condo in 2009

Why Louis Trinh chose Lahaina

Honua Kai is a brand-resort on North Kaanapali Beach. This area is quiet, has great views of Lanai and Molokai, and you can snorkel right on our beach. Relax poolside and take in the sunset, its very peaceful. From November to April, you can catch whales playing in the Ocean.

What makes this condo unique

With new furnishings, a fully-equipped kitchen, and hi-def TVs, there is no reason to leave the condo. There are so many amenities at Honua Kai, including Concierge Service, an Activities Desk next to the Pool, TEN Viking grills for you to use, and two fitness centers.

My husband and I spent 12 days at Louis' condo and could not have been happier! The unit was very clean, well stocked and had everything we could have possibly needed. Louis was a pleasure to deal with on every level. I would highly recommend this property. We will be returning to Maui and look forward to renting from Louis again.

What’s not to love?

  • 5 of 5

Lovely condo that seems like a luxury hotel. Louis did everything in his power to insure that our stay was the best it could possibly be. There is a restaurant “Duke” on the premises that was very good with a happy hour and live music every evening.

Condo is in the sunny part of Island we would absolutely stay there again.

Excellent location, beautiful room and wonderful host

  • 5 of 5

From the date we booked Louis was beyond exceptional. This was our first time to Maui and we were visiting for our honeymoon. Louis sent us tons of great information on spots to visit, excursions to book and restaurants to dine at. He was flexible with our check-out and we had a wonderful lovely surprise of the local favorite- chocolate covered macadamia and a gift card to Duke's pub. The pools and the beach were a step away from the property which was also immediate access to the boardwalk that leads to a 40 min jaunt to Whaler's Village. Having Duke's pub right on site was really nice when you just wanted to stay nearby and enjoy a few drinks or the incredible but filling Hula Pie- which is a MUST try. The bartenders were great. There is a little coffee shop downstairs, typical Maui pricing, but when on vacation you can't worry too much about it. If you wander across the street there is also Time's grocery store if you forgot to bring something.

The only downside which wasn't a make or break was the lengthy time it took to do any laundry but other than that we have nothing negative to say about our stay and our accommodations. Thank you again Louis- we will 100% be sure to book your condo the next visit and highly recommend it to anyone else we talk to.

Honua Kai is a wonderful resort on a great beach!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment we rented was great! Newly updated and stocked with essentials. There were beach toys, beach chairs and cooler for guests to use. When we had issues with the AC, the owner sent someone from engineering up right away. The view from our apartment was of the construction site next door, and not much ocean, but who spends that much time in their room anyways when the beach is a short walk away! Honua Kai is located on a great beach with excellent snorkeling. We had a Sea Turtle swim right past us! There are multiple shops and one restaurant on the property and a larger grocery store is close by. We had a great time in Maui staying at Honua Kai!

Relaxing Hawaiian Escape

  • 5 of 5

Louis was amazing - check in and out were easy. The condo is clean the bed is SO comfortable. The kicken has everything we needed and the bathroom is big and there were towels, snorkel stuff. The resort is really nice - 3 pools, water slide, beautiful spa, Dukes to eat and about 50 feet from the beach! We loved it!
