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. Honua Kai Vacation Rentals & Realty is located directly across the street from the Resort, and is there to take care of your every need.

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 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.

Fabulous stay

  • 5 of 5

We were impressed from the moment we arrived. The property's reception area is open, breezy and modern with the Hawaiian touch. Barry met us, took us up and I knew I made the right decision to rent from them. The unit is decorated beautifully, has everything you might need right up to beach towels and chairs. I liked the fact that the floor to ceiling windows opened totally to make the balcony feel like an extension of the living room. The bathroom is large with 2 sinks separate shower and tub. The only downside is that the bedroom is smaller than I would have liked. No dresser, small closet so living out of my suitcase was the case. There are 2 night stands that have drawers, but not big enough. One of the pools were under rehab, but there were other pools to use, a lazy river pool was another way to cool off. Plus the beautiful beach. Restaurant on-site is great addition. Also have bbq grills available for use. Definitely would stay here again. P. S. The views are extraordinary!

Awesome Stay at Honua Kai Resort

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at the Honua Kai resort. Steve and Barry were quick to respond to questions. Steve met us at the suite and briefed us on the amenities and provided suggestions for local dining. We had a car so toured the island snorkeling at many close locations. We did not use the pool area or dine at Duke's as we prefer the beach and trying the "locals" dining spots. Ask the valets/bellmen for suggestions. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need to cook/eat. Having a washer/dryer is very convenient. The unit also has beach chairs, umbrellas etc. We definitely recommend this property and hope to visit again soon!
