Overview

About the property

Oceanfront Condo, 3 Bedrooms + Sofa Sleeper, 2.5 Baths (Sleeps 6)

We invite you to share in our home away from home, Mele Kai (ocean song). Located on the West side of Maui. This is a smaller condo complex unlike the big resorts. View sea turtles or whale watching in season, sunsets, and island views of Molokai and Lanai are yours to enjoy from two ocean front lanais.

This large 1,400 square foot condo is located so close to the ocean you could throw a stone into it. Both oceanfront lanais (balconies) in our two-story condo boast extraordinary views. Since the condo is a corner unit, you have spectacular panoramic ocean views all the way down the coast.

The condo has a beachy feel, perfect for a casual vacation. The main living area is spacious with a dining area and seating for six. A lanai overlooks the ocean, so you can expand the living area outdoors for full indoor/outdoor living. Enjoy gazing over the ocean, or just listening to the waves.

The Master bedroom is the premier bedroom, being oceanfront with full ocean views. It has its own private lanai and full bath with a tub. The second bedroom is upstairs and has a king bed and a full bathroom with tub. The third bedroom is downstairs and has a pair of twin beds that can be converted to a third king, and access to the half bath downstairs. Each bedroom is fully enclosed offering privacy. The beds are high quality and comfortable. There is central air conditioning or balmy trade wind breezes.

The grounds are tropically landscaped and offer lounge chairs, outdoor seating and 4 gas grills oceanfront. The heated pool is warm, private, and has an outdoor shower.

Honokowai is located North of historic Lahaina town, between Kaanapali and Kapalua resorts, and is a half mile from a grocery store, shops, coffee house, and a farmer’s market. A beach walk extends from nearby Duke's Restaurant all the way to Kaanapali Beach. There is a bus stop (busses every half hour) in front of the building if the kids want to go explore on their own. World class resorts, famous beaches, championship golf courses, and even ferry rides to Lanai and Molokai are within 15 minutes driving time or less. We invite you to enjoy our piece of paradise as much as we do.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We come here yearly to visit family. It is a great place to visit and get away from all the stress of real life. The ocean is nice and warm and the view is perfect. Thank you for allowing us to stay in your condo. It is a nice place to sit and enjoy the scenery. We also like the wooden sea turtle on the wall.

Awesome location and great little beach.

  • 3 of 5

We spent two weeks in the unit. This is the second year that we have stayed in this building; we love the location and beach. This unit needs some TLC in order to be considered excellent, but it was comfortable and had all of the necessary amenities including a fantastic A/C system with separate upstairs and downstairs thermostats for even climate control. Of course the view is unbeatable! The downstairs bedroom would be okay for kids, but I felt a bit guilty putting my friend in it during our stay. Many small things contributed to the overall feeling that the unit needs some work: sink in upstairs bathroom wouldn't drain and never got fixed during our stay, the sunshade on the upstairs patio fell off and injured my mom's arm, the matting under the master bedroom bed continually fell off and made a huge mess as we unknowingly tracked it around the unit and into bed in the dark and then when I tried to use the unit's vacuum it spit out even more of the same stuff presumably from similar experiences by previous renters (spent a full half of a day cleaning it up and washing sheets), the fridge door squeaked loudly and the patio doors where very difficult to open and close so we purchased some WD40 and fixed them, the spoke detectors where all disabled and some were even hanging off of the walls when we arrived, and the fridge either froze our food or didn't keep it cold enough.

I did call the the property manager on several occasions with mixed results and eventually gave it up. After the mattress mess incident I called the owner who was very very nice and apologetic, but did not offer any solutions or compensation. On multiple occasions I was told that problems like the smoke detectors, things hanging off the walls, and the mattress mess were the result of "very deep cleaning", but that felt a bit insulting as it was obviously not the case.

Overall, the unit has all of the necessary components for a relatively comfortable stay, and we would be willing to rent it again provided that the necessary repairs and upgrades were made. As it sits today, we would choose another unit.

Owner's Response: We are happy to hear that you enjoyed the condo, amenities, central A/C unit, and views. We apologize for missing a walk through after a deep clean. The smoke detectors were having batteries replaced, as a part of this maintenance, we should have had them back together before you arrived. Our on-site management company is excellent at very quickly repairing and replacing things you tell them about, usually the same day, but it is difficult to remedy situations if we don't know about them. The management replaced the blinds and all the smoke detectors with new ones right away. If you had let us know that there were other issues, we would have happily fixed them too. We take all guest concerns very seriously and do our best to remedy any problem or concerns immediately. Management's goal is to give prompt and courteous service. We aim to fix everything ASAP. We are glad you had a comfortable stay with us overall. Thank you for staying with us.

Better than expected!

  • 5 of 5

We were surprised to see that the kitchen had been upgraded since the pictures! It had everything needed for cooking great meals! Also the condo has air conditioning throughout! The views were amazing, couldn't ask for better! We loved our stay, it was the perfect place. Also, Bert is the best, he made our stay even more special!

Such a lovely vacation!

  • 4 of 5

We had a family of five. My husband, myself, my brother and our 85 year old parents. This condo had it all. The bedroom on the main, served my parents extremely well, as the stairs were an issue. The bedrooms upstairs both had king beds and private bathrooms, such a nice luxury! You COULD not beat the view! Steps in front of the condo was the roaring waves of the ocean. The staff were nothing short of awesome! No request was too small and they were all taken care of in an extremely timely fashion. The dishwasher had an issue and was fixed within hours. The coffee machine wasn't working to it's fullest, a new one within the day. I don't want issues when I'm away, so to have a team to take care of it was remarkable! I would highly reccommend this condo, as it served 5 of us beautifully and with no issues. The condo is situated in a great part of Lahaina and is close to all amenities. The pool was clean and tidy, although I was surprised it was in the back of the condo, and not on the ocean side. Aside from that, it was great to relax in and they even supplied the floaties! Thank you for making this trip a wonderful experience!

Wonderful Location, Relaxing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

6 of stayed here (4 adults, 2 children) and absolutely loved this place. Plenty of room, very clean, unbeatable views, and a quiet condo complex. Bert (lives onsite) was awesome and so friendly along with the office staff. My kids loved the pool and the beach. Plenty of space where we didn't feel like we were crowding each other. In the interest of full disclosure, the ONLY downside to this condo is the 2nd master bedroom. The street noise and the AC unit powering on and off all night made for a lot of sleepless nights. This is no fault of the owner but more just a warning that you should bring ear plugs if you're sensitive to noises at night. It is also is the hottest bedroom in the house. After some trial and error with the AC and trade winds we got it to a comfortable temp for sleeping (hint: keep doors to both masters open so the winds blow through and turn on AC at night or you will melt into a puddle). This wasn't a deal breaker for us and we would happily stay here again - the location, the views, the cleanliness, the friendly staff completely outweighed the minor hiccups with the bedroom. We will certainly be back again. Thank you to Melissa and everyone onsite for the wonderful experience. It's a vacation we will certainly remember forever.

My two children and their spouses and I, really enjoyed our stay in your property. We celebrated my 75th birthday there! The location was perfect because of access to the beach. Interior delightful! Staff very helpful too.

Awesome studio - great value!

  • 5 of 5

I loved this place. As mentioned in prior reviews, the condo is well taken care of and very well-stocked. Melissa was extremely helpful throughout the booking and planning process. Can't get much closer to the water!! Love that view and could stare at it all day/ night. This is a great value for an oceanfront place - and Kahana is a great location; walking distance to Maui Brewing, Dollies, Miso Phat, etc. Just a couple suggestions - I would have loved to have a bistro table and chairs out on the patio (i.e. higher up so you can see over the railing while sitting). The wooden slats on the railing are thick and they block the view when you are sitting on the outdoor furniture, thus I always felt like I need to be standing up to take advantage of the view. The other thing that would be nice is to have a few cheap sets of snorkeling equipment available so people don't have to rent. I brought my own this time but would love to have it available there. All in all, I highly recommend this place. Oh, and I was concerned about road noise as I am very sensitive to it, and it was not an issue in this unit at all. Thanks Melissa!
