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.

"Honua Kai's Finest" absolutely true statement. What a view! This penthouse unit is beautifully furnished and is in pristine condition. Steven Gatchell and company (mauilife Realty) leave no stone unturned assuring that their guests are comfortable and happy. Beach chairs, towels, boogie boards and a cooler with ice packs--Honua Kai's Finest has you covered. "Meticulous" defines 713H from the kitchenware, linens, electronics, cleanliness, maintenance, and management. VRBO property 289720 is outstanding.

Excellent Property & View

  • 4 of 5

Stayed a week in #713 and enjoyed our stay. Condo was as advertised and the perfect size for two adults. Plenty of beach toys left behind by previous tenants. You can pay extra for maid service as it's not connected to the Honua Kai property. View was excellent and access to the numerous pools and Duke's restaurant made for a relaxing week. A few nits - not associated with the unit, but with the property itself - 1) the lanai police slipped messages under your door reminding you to keep towels off the lanai furniture. On an island that prides itself for going green, why not let folks dry their towels outside instead of running the electricity for the dryers? 2) signs posted in numerous locations around the approaches to the pool areas indicating the spreading towels out to reserve lounge chairs poolside or under umbrellas was not allowed. Sitting on our 7th floor lanai it was easy to observe how little this policy is enforced. It actually rivalled the bad behavior we've seen on previous cruises we've taken. 3) Given the design of the property it was difficult to avoid hearing the babies in other units across the way or the party animals in various units enjoying themselves into the early AM hours. Again, these are nits and didn't take away from the views and our enjoyment of the #713 property. We would recommend this location to anyone.

Owner's Response: Aloha, Thanks for your review, and although it was not "everything" to you, we are happy that the suite and our service was... Unfortunately, a Resort cannot be "everything", to every person. For anyone reading this, outside of a few concerns this guest had not related to Suite 713, or our service, this Guest recommends this "location to anyone"...

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!
