Aloha & Welcome to Honua Kai's finest "Penthouse" 1br/1ba, Suite 713 Hokulani

There is only ONE "Penthouse" One-bedroom ocean view suite in the entire Resort. This is it! Exceptional Ocean Views of the Pacific ocean, and the beautiful Island of Molokai. Lie in bed and watch the Whales play... You will not find a finer One-bedroom Ocean View Suite at the Honua Kai Resort and Spa. The Honua Kai Resort & Spa offers just seven"inner courtyard" One-bedroom suites, and they are considered to be the very best available. Suite #713 resides on the TOP floor of tis prestigious "stack". Simply put, Suite #713 is the finest one bedroom available at the Honua Kai Resort & Spa. "Hale Lanikai", is the name I have chosen for my new "Top Shelf" Maui home. The Hawaiian words translate as, Home of the Heavenly Seas. As Hale Lanikai resides atop the resort, the views are uninterrupted, both above and below. My home offers a sense of privacy that most suites at the Resort do not enjoy. Hale Lanikai offers partial ocean views from within the suite, and amazing Ocean and Molokai views from the spacious lanai. This one bedroom suitewith it's additional sofa bed is considered one of the very best Ocean View Suites available, and is situated within the inner courtyard. Inner courtyard suites offer protection from the prevailing Northeast trade winds, and are very quiet. Being a top floor suite, there is never a chance of noise from above. If ocean views and privacy are what you are looking for, combined with Five Star Hotel interior and amenities, you will be very pleased with the Hale Lanikai.

There is no poor choice at the Honua Kai Resort & Spa; it is quickly gaining recognition as Maui's finest "All Luxury Suite Destination". On-site you will discover a wonderful beachside restaurant, gourmet deli grocery store, one of the nicest and largest fitness/spas on Maui, multiple meandering pool areas, and one of the best beaches I have ever visited. A new beachside boardwalk accommodates walkers and runners for miles of spectacular ocean views and the nearby Islands of Lanai and Molokai. Whatever guides your decision to vacation at the Honua Kai Resort & Spa, you will surely be delighted.

Honua Kai Vacation Rentals & Realty manages my home. From the very first time you contact one of our Guest Service Specialists, to the moment you are personally met at the Honua Kai Resort upon your arrival, you will experience service with Aloha. Honua Kai Vacation Rentals & Realty will provide you with exceptional personalized services, from the lowest guaranteed priced Luau's, Zip-line Rides and Snorkel Tours, to in-room Chef Services. As my guest, you will enjoy FULL USE of the pools, BBQ's, and Fitness Spa.

About Steven G Gatchell & Barry Ware

Thank you for visiting Ohana Lanikai, my vision of the ideal beachside home of 'The Heavenly Seas'. I was born and raised in Iowa and attended the University of Iowa for undergraduate, combined M.D. Ph.D. Medical Scientist Training Program, an internship in internal medicine, a residency in Ophthalmology, and subspecialty fellowship training in Neuro-ophthalmology - a total of 17 years, all of which were enjoyable, challenging and fulfilling. I have been a dedicated member of the Ophthalmology Department faculty of the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics and Department of Veterans Affairs Hospital for over 20 years and I am currently Professor and Director of Neuro-ophthalmology and Director of the Iowa City VA Center of Excellence for the Prevention and Treatment of Vision Loss. I spend half of my time in academic clinical practice and half of my time doing funded research. I love my profession and approach life with passion, creativity, caring, honesty and humility. I enjoy traveling (especially to Maui during the Midwest winters) and have a keen visual sensitivity to my surroundings. I am known for my impeccable taste. I am a fitness enthusiast and enjoy all sports, especially golf. I welcome new experiences and adventures.

Why Honua Kai:

I have been coming to Maui every January for the last 7 years to a very nice timeshare situated right on the beach. This last year I was floored by the new Honua Kai Resort, which I happened upon while walking along the beach and beachside boardwalk bordering the resort. This is one of the nicest resorts I have ever seen, in every aspect. I was not planning to purchase a second home, but when I saw that unit 713 was for sale, I could not pass up the chance to own it. It is one of the few one bedroom suites that is situated facing the courtyard below, with views of the resort pools and a straight shot view of the beach, ocean and the island of Molokai in the distance. It is on the top floor, so you really have a sense of perspective when gazing out the windows or relaxing on its large lanai. It really took my breath away and I knew instantly that staying in this unit would always bring me much happiness and joy.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:

I was struck by the serene sense of openness of the Honua Kai lobby and grounds. The furnishings are top-notch with wonderful sitting areas in an extremely spacious lobby and courtyard, beautiful large pools, and just a great sense of calm and relaxation. There is plenty of great walking paths and the boardwalk with surrounding putting green grass takes you all the way down to the end of Kaanapali beach - or you can walk along the ocean parallel to the boardwalk with the waves lapping at your feet. The fitness center is large, has plenty of aerobic and weight machines and is truly a joy to experience. I am a long-time fitness enthusiast, so I really appreciate this amenity. This is truly a 5 star resort atmosphere and my one bedroom suite is one of the very best units and locations in the whole resort. Steve Gatchell, who heads the Honua Kai Vacation Rentals & Realty that manages my suite, is located directly across the street and will be available to make sure that every detail of your stay goes smoothly and that you are well taken care of. He also has many years of experience on Maui and can help arrange for discounted activities, if desired. He also is an owner at Honai Kai so he is expert in every aspect of the resort. Rest assured that he will facilitate a wonderful stay for you at my Honua Kai 'Ohana Lanikai' #713 I know you will enjoy it as much as I do and will want to come back.

Impressive newer towers on the north end of kaapalua

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Honua Kai in the past and liked the quality of the resort and its central location between kaanapali and kapalua. As it was just my wife and I we went for just a one bedroom on the 7th floor. The unit was on the south side which is the better of the two as the opposite side gets a lot of sun making the lanai pretty hot. The ocean view was great as always. The unit was set up in standard fashion. Very nice. A couple nits. The carpet had a roll in it. It appears the unit is being rented hard. Also the beach chairs need replacing as the straps are all torn. We also bought mats and left them because the unit didn't have those. But all the appliances and electronics were top shelf. And having Dukes downstairs is a godsend when you don't feel like heading anywhere. Last, just be forewarned that this is a very family heavy resort with lots of multi generation guests and a lot of kids. The property sets up great for this so it's to be expected. But if you are looking for a quiet little place, you may want to look elsewhere. If you are organizing a family get together, this is the place

Owner's Response: Aloha John, Thanks again for staying with us! When you checked in, the very first thing was asked of you was to contact us immediately if there were any issues at all, as we wanted to make sure your stay was 110% to your satisfaction. The following day you received an email from us, asking if everything was to your satisfaction and if we could be of any service, not to hesitate to contact us. Regarding the chairs, that is an easy fix issue as we stock at least a dozen to replace as required. "Rolls" in carpets do occur, as you are correct, these suites are in high demand. This issue is also an easy to resolve issue with a simple call or email to us. We are happy you mentioned that the suite was in tip top shape outside of the these very small issues, that we would have loved to have resolved for you while you were here. If you are a potential guest reading this review, you will be sure to receive the very same level of service that this guest received. We hope that you will take our multiple offers to ensure your absolute satisfaction with this lovely suite and its contents. Steven and I take your satisfaction very seriously, and you will experience this for yourself when you come and visit. Thanks again. Barry and Steven

Can't wait until next year!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time that we have stayed at the Honua Kai but the first time in this particular unit. It was everything that we had hoped for and more. Steven and Barry were very attentive and made the entire experience seamless. We have just confirmed our return trip next year and have booked the same unit. See you in 2017! Mahalo!

Honua Kai in my opinion is a 5 Star Resort that offers something for everyon of any age!

  • 5 of 5

My Family stayed in two condos while in Maui from June 11-18th of this year. My Father stayed in Unit 713 Houkalani, 1 bed 1 bath and My family was in a three bed three bath unit 625 Houkalani. Let me say that Steve and Barry are 1st class all the way. Their Units represent the finest in amenities and nicer than ANY hotel. Unit 625 was beautifully appointed and we absolutely enjoyed our stay there as did my 90 Year old Father in unit 713.

Thank you for making our 25th Wedding anniversary trip stay beyond memorable Steve and Barry!

Sincerely,

Todd Gordon

Fabulous Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Loved this one bedroom condo! Great location and view. Very comfortable with all the amenities. Everything is up to date & current... very first class & modern.

Had everything we needed. While we were there had 2 pocket lights go out but when called to let them know they came and fixed them both right away.

Having Duke's on property was the best! If you don't want to cook in the full sized kitchen just take a quick stroll down to Duke's.

Great property, great location, great stay!

Awesome Vacation with a Great View

  • 5 of 5

We were pleased from the minute we booked to the minute we sadly left Honua Kai. It was our home for 16 nights and we would go back there in a heartbeat. The attention we received from Barry and Steven was stellar. We were notified immediately about the pool closure near the unit so we were not surprised to see it closed when we arrived. Barry met us in the lobby and took us up to the suite to get us all settled in and explain how everything worked. The suite had everything we needed to cook and play. They provide boogie boards, beach chairs and umbrellas. We barbequed on the very clean grills of which there are many near the unit. We ate at Dukes and enjoyed the atmosphere, food and service. We golfed at the nearby golf course. Pricey but beautiful views of the ocean on a majority of the holes. The Honua Kai grounds are beautiful and well maintained. We sat on our lanai and watched the groundskeepers pick up all the fallen flowers daily. It was fun to watch the people throwing footballs etc in the grassy area. The unit is very clean and the view of the ocean is spectacular. Definitely would come back to this suite and would highly recommend it.
