Guestbook comments from the owner

Whether you want to sit in the sun, read while listening to the sound of the waves or be on the move from morning until night this is the place to be. There is no better snorkeling anywhere than right here at the cove and it is right out side your door. Sea turtles are always there and they enjoy sunning themselves on the rocks of the cove. This unit has a fully equipped kitchen, a nice living room and two bedrooms. The lanai is the perfect place to drink your morning coffee. The condo has a pool and gas grills. We love spending time there. A great sandy beach is just a block away. This is a fantastic place.

Location is second to none! Old school Maui at its finest!

  • 5 of 5

If you want brand new sparkling Granite and marble then this is NOT the place for you! If you come to Maui for the abundant sea life, the world class snorkeling, the amazing scenery, the exciting boogieboarding and the seventies pace of life, this is the perfect place for you. We stayed with 4 adults and 2 kids and this place was magical! We were in the water less than five minutes and we had a whole family of turtles around us!! Amazing!! After having visited the Maui Ocean Centre, we now had an idea of what we were going to see in the water and we were not disappointed!! Dealing with the Varnells was a totally positive experience all the way through the booking process! They were very willing to let us in a little earlier as we were moving from another place and had food. A bottle of wine and snacks were awaiting us on our arrival, which was very much appreciated! I will be back!

Best Kept Secret on Maui

  • 4 of 5

Honokeana Cove is the best location on Maui. Terrific views of the cove and Molokai, Turtles everywhere you look in the cove and a laid back, quiet charm that is becoming harder to find. Our family of 5, including three teenagers, had all the room we needed and the owners did everything they could to make our stay as simple as stress free as possible....they communicated with us regularly in advance of our stay to ensure we had everything we needed to gain access to the unit and they even left us a nice bottle of wine as a welcoming gift, which was a nice touch. We would certainly go back when we next plan a trip to Maui.

The Green Family.

Beautiful! Snorkel in your front yard, minutes from the beach

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing experience with this condo, which we rented so that we could attend a wedding in Lahaina with 2 other couples. The condo is very comfortable and clean, with air conditioning and fans in every room. We grilled every night using the shared grills out in front overlooking the cove, and enjoyed meeting the neighbors. We spent time on the nearby beaches during the day, all within about a 5 minute's drive. The snorkeling in the cove in front of the condo (pictured) is amazing, there are several turtles who hang our here and lots of beautiful fish. I highly recommend it and hope to go back!

Beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Honokeana Cove and hope to reserve this property again in the future. We found the cove to be excellent for snorkeling and we had access to snorkeling/beach gear at the condo. The condo had everything we needed. We had a wonderful family Christmas holiday in Maui. The owners were a joy to work with.

The owner was extremely accommodating and helpful at making this the best family vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

Very easy checkin. The house was cool upon arrival. Probably the only place in this complex with A/C. Location is unbeatable. The cove is quiet, exclusive and a wonderful place to spend lazy days snorkeling, in the pool and on the grass relaxing. We had a welcome bottle of wine to celebrate our arrival. The beds were very comfortable. The house despite being dated with Old Hawaiian Furniture was comfortable. The only downside to the property was that it may be due for some updating. The Owner was extremely accommodating and truly made our stay wonderful! Would definitely return!

Beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

This is probably one of the best-kept secrets on Maui. The cove is absolutely beautiful. We enjoyed every morning and evening relaxing on the condo deck or sitting poolside watching the giant turtles in the cove and listening to the ocean.

The snorkeling is one of the finest areas in Maui. We can't wait to visit again. Our grandkids had the time of their life.

The location was perfect ... Great access to shopping, restaurants, and Kapalua which is a beautiful beach is within walking distance.

The condo had everything we needed and the view was spectacular ... would recommend to anyone that wants an amazing view and an immaculately kept property.
