My 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom suite is on the top floor (7th) of the new Honua Kai Resort and Spa, a beachfront condo resort on Kaanipali Beach. While sitting on the spacious lanai you’ll enjoy a breathtaking view of the beach and the nearby island of Molokini. Open the full-wall accordion glass doors and your entire living room becomes part of the Hawaiian outdoors, with screens for your peace of mind. The best part is that I'm north facing, so that the Lanai is shaded most of the day for full enjoyment.
The condo is 1,100 sq. ft. inside plus 235 sq. ft. of outside living on the lanai. The lanai features a dining table that seats 6, two padded lounge chairs, end table and chair, for full ocean view enjoyment. The lanai has one of the most beautiful views in the condo resort, inner courtyard north facing, overlooking the ocean, main pool, and Duke's restaurant. Amazing at night with all the tiki torches lit!
There’s a restaurant "Duke's" on the property with a great outside bar, casual outdoor dinning section and a more upscale dinning vibe inside. A deli/sundries/coffee shop is conveniently located downstairs. A local grocery store is across the street (a healthy walk), or enjoy the quaint and active Lahaina downtown, just a few minutes away by car. Lahaina has shopping, a larger supermarket, music, great family restaurants on the ocean, and more. Park once and enjoy the whole town.

I live in California, in the bay area, and have spent many vacations in Maui with my kids. I have always wanted a vacation home of our own, and that dream came true when I found the perfect fit at the Honua Kai Resort and Spa.
Shelly Adams purchased this condo in 2011
Our stay here was perfect in every way. Everything we needed was at our fingertips. Beach chairs, boogie boards, snorkeling gear etc. were all there for us to use. It was also convenient to have the market/coffee shop downstairs; we enjoyed our lattes and acai bowls in the morning. We loved being out on the lanai every single day. It was our favorite place to be in the morning and evening. We even tried the spa one day and it was wonderful. It was so nice to have everything available at one place. The accommodations were excellent. We will definitely return and would recommend it!!
This was our 4rth trip to Maui. Because it is such a long flight from Texas, we like to stay 10 days to 2 Weeks. The last 2 trips and this one, we split time between staying at Napili Bay and Ka'annapali. As I stepped out of my car and into the elevator, the conversation between the 2 men on the elevator was; "This place is much nicer than the Westin". I thought that was a very good sign.
I have stayed at the Westin before, and after a week at Honua Kai, I would agree. I wouldn't say "much" nicer, but I liked it better. Our room was much larger than the rooms at the Westin(or any other room I've stayed at on Maui). They view is very good from the Lanai. The kitchen was well equipped. Location of this unit and the garage parking included with it were very nice. There is a grocery store very close to the unit. Dukes is nice. Closet full of beach toys was great. There are several quality(not toy) boogie boards, snorkle gear, beach chairs, bags, wagon, etc.
If you are considering Honua Kia, but not this room, I would warn you that the newest addition to the Westin is under construction just up the beach and the rooms accross the hall face that. Just so there is no confusion THIS ROOM IS GREAT AND DOES NOT FACE construction.
I haved used VRBO before. I am always a little cautious about the owner or leasing company. I was extremely happy with the great tiimely commonication and honestly/intergrety of Shelly. While we were there, the dishwasher had a malfunction. A repairman was at our door in less than 2 hours from when I contacted the owner. He quickly it fixed and was on his way. I was just has happy with my dealings with the owner as I was with the great room.
There wasn't anything that I was dissapointed with, but I have a comment for those who love being in the water. You may want to bring/rent a higher quality mask if you plan to snorkle a lot. The ones in the unit are functional, but not great if you plan to spend a lot of time snorkling. There are spots in the garage you can rent to store a surf board. There is a deposit and a one time fee.
Closet Full of Beach Toys
Great Experience with Owner
Parking in Garage
Great Snorkeling spot
Great area for runners/joggers **beach walk just under 3 miles
Adequate gym in other tower
Nice pools with plenty of shallow areas and slides for kids(old and young)
Very thoughtful "welcome basket" with coffe and snacks
The property is beautiful. We stayed at Honua Kai four years ago but not in this condo. Shelly's condo was very clean and well furnished. She even has beach chairs, boogie boards, snorkel stuff and beach toys for her guest to use. Do not hesitate to rent this unit for your family you will not be disappointed with it or her. Shelly's communication is quick and detailed. She even told us the best place to park in the garage to be the closest to her condo from the elevator.
Beautiful unit within a gorgeous complex. There are lots of activities to do on site, as well as nearby. Breathtaking sunset views from the lanai. Fantastic family atmosphere.
Our stay at this beautiful condo was amazing. Though we were only there for a couple of days our party of six was very comfortable, the views spectacular and the amenities wonderful. Our flight came in 7 hours late and by the time we got there we were exhausted and hungry. The owner had a welcome package that we appreciated. Would definitely stay there again.
Want to thank Shelly for letting us stay at her condo. It is a really nice place with great ocean views. saw a lot of whales. This condo has every thing and is well maintained. The beds are very comfortable. Shelly is great to work with, she lets you know everything you need to know before you get there. She also tells you about great places to eat and fun things to do. So thanks again Shelly, we all had a really great time.
