You will love the spectacular ocean views from our large 1320 square foot 2 bedroom 2 bath condo with 340 square foot wrap around lanai located in the interior courtyard of the luxurious Honua Kai Resort. Enjoy ocean views from the kitchen, dining and living room and guest bedroom and from the spacious lanai furnished with comfortable lounge chairs and dining table. It is the perfect place for dining/entertaining/relaxing while overlooking the Pacific Ocean and the beautiful amenities of the newest resort on Kaanapali Beach.
We have stocked our home with many extra amenities including a pack-n-play portable crib, play station with games, board games, spice rack, dish/laundry soap, boogie boards, snorkel sets (adult and child), beach towels/chairs/toys, umbrellas, and ice chest.
Enjoy swimming at Honua Kai's 3 pools, slide down the water slide, eat/drink at the fabulous Duke's Beach House Restaurant.
My name is Brian Shackelford I am a Real estate Broker in Arizona, and a Realtor in Hawaii. Along with my wife Michele and sons Max and Jake we would like to welcome you to our Island Paradise. We have been coming to Maui since 2003 when we first fell in Love with the Island.
Brian Shackelford purchased this condo in 2009
Honua Kai is the nicest newest four Diamond resort on the Island with Fabulous pool, beautiful grounds lush tropical landscape.
We stayed for a week long vacation from January 14-21. We are so glad we chose to stay here because everything surpassed our expectations. The unit is in a prime location on the inside of the Hokulani tower overlooking the pool, the ocean, and the island of Molokai in the distance. The condo was very spacious, the beds were comfortable, and the kitchen was stocked with everything from utensils, plates, pots, pans, and a blender to cooking spray, spices, aluminum foil, ziploc bags, and coffee filters. And best of all, the sliding glass doors open up to the lanai so you can relax and enjoy the ocean breeze. There is a private wifi network, but we found it to be a pretty slow connection. Minor detail. We had to keep in mind that this is not a hotel, so daily housekeeping service was not something that we could expect. But Brian even went out of his way to have the maids come by mid-week to change out our linens, which we really appreciated. When we arrived, we also had a nice gift basket waiting for us with mac nut chocolates, Hawaiian coffee, among other snacks and treats, which was a very nice touch.
If you don't feel like cooking, there is a Duke's Beach House right on the property. Their servers would walk around the pool area and offer to bring drinks or food throughout the day. The menu was a bit pricey, as was the case with every restaurant on Maui, but they had a pretty good happy hour and live music every day. The water heater in the pool was apparently down for repair when we were there, which made swimming pretty chilly, but the pools were still great for both kids and adults. One of the very nice things about staying here was that it didn't feel crowded like the big resorts, although if you wanted a chair by the pool with an umbrella (which were bolted to the ground by the way, so you couldn't move them throughout the day to stay out of the sun), you had to snag one pretty early.
The condo's proximity to both the beach and the pool was unbeatable. Literally just steps away from both, unlike other resorts we have stayed at where you had to hike a ways. Great snorkeling even right off the beach, where we saw fish, sea turtles, and could watch the whales from the shore.
We enjoyed every minute of our stay, and will definitely plan on coming back! Thank you Brian for doing everything you did to make our stay in your unit a dream come true!
From the moment I inquired about staying in Brian's property he was a gracious host. He called me back and gave us great advice for a more enjoyable stay. We stopped and got food before we even got to the property. When we arrived, We were greeted outside with our keys and two valets helped us with all of our bags (six of us were on this vacation). The property was everything we were expecting and more. We unpacked a got straight to the pool before dinner.
Being from the mainland meant that we were up early to enjoy the dawn behind us looking out over the ocean from our lanai. We could sit every morning looking out over the ocean while drinking our coffee. which was the perfect way tot begin every day of our vacation. The rooms were very comfortable and had everything we needed. We grilled on the BBQs almost every night. We enjoyed a sunset dinner on the lanai more that once as well.
This was one of the best vacations we have ever had! My youngest daughter even said as we were driving home from the airport, "When can we go back to our Hawaii home and stay longer?" We will definitely be back.
I'm keeping this short yet wanted to say what a wonderful experience we had here. Brian is awesome, the place is fantastic. Stayed 10 days and loved every minute of it. When we go back to Maui, we are hopefully staying there. In fact, we are planning on recruiting our extended family to secure a couple rentals there!
There were 6 of us 4 adults and two teenagers. It was nice to have a kitchen to cook in along with the BBQ down by the pool area. It was quiet and comfortable. Close to all the activities we had planned. Highly recommend staying here. Thank You Brian
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Honua Kai. We were greeted with a nice gift basket filled with tasty Hawaiian treats. This unit is situated on the 4th floor in what I consider the perfect location. It faces the inside of the U shaped building and has a balcony which extends into the open area so you have an unobstructed view of the ocean. It is protected from the windy conditions. We enjoyed coffee and breakfast every morning, as well as lunch and a few dinners with breath taking views of Lanai and Molokai.
The grounds of the property were clean, well maintained and beautifully landscaped. The condo is nicely furnished and very comfortable. The kitchen is very nicely stocked with everything one would need for cooking at the condo (including spices, cooking oil, etc). There are clean, well maintained gas grills near the pools. Laundry and dishwasher detergent was also provided.
There are multiple boogie boards, beach chairs, ices chests, cooler bags and snorkel sets for your use on the beach. There is an oceanfront boardwalk which extends a couple of miles south all the way to the Hyatt hotel (it does weave through other resorts and is not always adjacent to the shore).
The location is excellent. We were a few minutes from surf lessons, Luaus and zip lining. There is good snorkeling right off shore and excellent snorkeling a short drive away. Duke's Beach House is an on site restaurant which was very good. There is also a small shop in the lobby calles Aina whch has coffe, pastries, some prepared salads, sandwiches and few grocery items.
If we return to Maui we would definitely choose to stay here again!
Our family of 6 ( 2 adults and 4 teenagers ) stayed for 6 days. The room was well appointed stocked with all of the amenities you could think of: kitchen utensils, knifes, seasonings, coffee and filters, small appliances, board games, PlayStation 3 and games, travel guides, snorkel and beach equipment, laundry soap, and lots more. Upon arrival we were delivered a nice welcome basket with snacks which was a nice touch. The unit itself was large and there was plenty of seating for dinner. My favorite things were the wrap around lanai and the beds which were ohhhh so comfortable. The owner was very responsive to all my question throughout the entire process. The resort itself had 3 huge pools, 3 or 4 hot tubs, and a nice beach with direct access. We are dinner at dukes which is also on site and it was excellent. Our entire party of 21 people said their food was delicious. I can't say enough great things about the owner and this particular unit.
