My husband John and I just love the sun and long walks on beach so when we started thinking about investing in real estate and where we wanted to retire we couldn't find a better place than Maui. We were married on Maui in 1996 on Big Beach and have returned every year since to visit the island and the beach we were married on. Our whole family loves to snorkle, dive, fish and any other water sport we can find. We hope to someday retire in Maui in our condo on the beach.
Laury Miller purchased this condo in 2009
We chose Maalaea because it is central to the entire South side of the island with Lahaina only 20 minutes away and Kihei and Wailea only 10 minutes away. It is also only about 15 minutes from the airport. We also love to watch the whales when they come to have their young in the winter and Maalaea is the perfect location to view the whales. The beach in front of our unit wraps around toward Kihei where the Turtles go to lay their eggs.
The Lanai is only 40 feet from the start of a 5 mile long beach that goes all the way to Kihei. Hono Kai is one of the few complexes in Maalaea that is directly on the beach. Every room in the Condo has a view of the Beach and the Ocean. The Condo has been completely remodeled and boasts all new appliances etc... There is snorkeling directly in front of the complex with a pool also overlooking the beach. Whales are known to frequent the Maalaea Harbor area during the winter months and have their calves. The beach also leads to the area the Turtles go to lay their eggs and nest so great viewing of the Turtles. Most water activities to Molokini, snorkeling, diving, fishing etc...leave from the Maalaea Marina which is walking distance. Not to mention the close access to shopping and resturants in the Marina Village. Maalaea also is the home to one of the largest Aquariums in Hawaii. The Condo grounds are clean and well kept and offer a BBQ area as well as Pool and lounging areas.
We loved the high ceilings, abundance of windows, the extra bed in the den making it very comfortable for five people (everyone had their own space with no one sleeping in the living room), all the upgrades, the great beach chairs and boogie boards, the well-equipped kitchen and let's not forget, the gorgeous view. Wow!! The surfboard table and high chairs on the lanai are brilliant. We spent a lot of time out there enjoying the view. We were the envy of the complex! We also loved the quiet location and the second floor is perfect. Condo was super clean. The beach is really nice as well. The only reason we did not give a five star is because the beds aren't the best quality. Perfectly clean and in good shape, just not real comfortable.
Simply said, Wow! This spectacular ocean front property is right on the Sugar beach and centrally located in Maalaea. We were able to make trips to all parts of Maui without having to feel the monotony of being located far off at one end of the island (like our stay last time in Kaanapali). The kitchen is fully equipped with the latest appliances, cutlery etc.,. The bath, living and bedrooms were modern, comfy, spotless and very well maintained. Our return trip to Maui after 9 long years and two young'uns in tow was the best ever. Thanks Laury for sharing us a piece of your heaven!
The comfort of the Hale
The space and the view!
The nice beds to rest at the end of each day
But most of all the precious times with my ohana of 4 (including Kula the Chihuahua)
We were ready to have our 4 nights R&R after a 4 night busy trip in Oahu. We chose Laury's and John's home because it was perfectly situated in the middle of Maui where it's 10- 30 minutes to points of interest everywhere with the exception of upcountry and Hana. Secondly, it is away from the busy tourist areas for a needed R&R. Andres the property manager gave us a pre-arrival call to make sure that everything was ready for us when we arrived.
The waves were wild and crazy day and night, being start of winter and so close to the water. They seemed like 20 feet instead of 40 feet from the Lanai. I wish we had stayed longer to have more time walking the length of the beach upfront & trying on the boogie boards! Although, we found a perfect snorkeling spot where 'Nemo and Dory's' posses hangout! :)
We barely scratched the surface being our first time in Maui. Still dreaming about it for the past 2 weeks. No worries, I'm working on our next trip already! ;)
Mahalo Laury and John for all the memories!
Very clean, attention to details, easy and fast communication with owners. Central to everything!
A beautiful condo to go along with the beautiful weather can't ask for anything more.
The beach was great, as advertised.
We really enjoyed our time and we will recommend this condo to our friends that want to go to Hawaii.
Our family of three had a great stay at Hono Kai. The place was in excellent shape, and we enjoyed the decor. You can snorkel along the beach, and we saw well over a dozen sea turtles. The view from the room was splendid, as I would sit out there while I drank my coffee.
Overall--- GREAT !!!
Aquarium, Whale Watching, Turtle Watching, long walks on the beach
