About Chris Burns

After coming to Maui every year for over 15+ years, we decided to get a vacation home in our favorite vacation spot -- Kaanapali beach. We look forward towards sharing our new vacation home with your family!

Chris Burns purchased this condo in 2010

Why Chris Burns chose Maui

After coming to Maui & Kaanapali for over 15 years and continuing to stay in older condos with small pools, we were excited to find the 1st oceanfront property built in Kaanapali in the last 30+ years with multiple pools, water slides, and Duke's restaurant!

What makes this condo unique

As our reviews will suggest, we take special care to provide lots of beach amenities, games , DVD's and many things for the kitchen that enable you to pack lighter and buy less for your vacation in paradise!

Amazing Condo

  • 5 of 5

We loved our amazing stay in this beautiful Honua Kai condo. It was amazing. I look at our pictures, and it was truly paradise. The location is spectacular. The view from the lanai of the ocean and mountains is beautiful. We saw a rainbow every afternoon over the mountains and breath taking sunsets from the very spacious lanai. The condo is exceptionally stocked with all the fun toys and beach equipment you could need. The owners also did a great job communicating with us prior and after the stay. We really appreciated the information provided ahead of time with excellent recommendations for restaurants, activities, and must see locales. We enjoyed the pools and resort as well. Dinner at Dukes was a great end to many long days in the sun. It was also wonderful to have a full equipped kitchen (and laundry) in the condo, especially for long visits. We would come back to this location and condo in a heart beat!

Perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

The owner of this property is a true professional. Very respectful and he took care of everything. I highly recommend this property for families with kids. They have a bunch of beach toys, boogie boards, sand chairs, snorkel masks and fins, and even a big DVD library. I hope to return soon! Thanks!!

Extrordinary Visit

  • 5 of 5

Maui is wonderful. We have visited a few times, however, this was our first time staying at Honua Kai in unit 436. The unit was very clean and well decorated, and the view was gorgeous. We ate breakfast on the lanai every morning while watching the sun rise over the pacific...priceless memory. The layout of the unit was perfect for us, we had a master bedroom, second bedroom with twin (or queen) beds for our grown children, and a sofa bed for my mom. We stayed 8 days, and the walls "never closed in" b/c the unit is spacious and has separate areas for retreat. Additionally, the unit had every amenity needed from the beach chairs, kitchen utensils, and beach towels. We especially appreciated the full size bottles of name brand shampoo in both showers and full size bar of soap.

Our unit owner communicated with us throughout the booking process and our arrival. We had a late night arrival, and he sent all our documents in advance so we wouldn't experience any delays upon arrival. We decided to add a late check-out at the very last minute, and the owner was quick to rearrange cleaning services for us to enjoy the unit until departure. (Thank you very much).

Honua Kai is a wonderful property. The convenience of Duke's is an added luxury b/c you don't have to leave the property to enjoy a nice dinner. Several days we never left Honua Kai. We enjoyed the pool and beach all day followed by a nice sunset dinner at Duke's. (Please eat the pie if nothing else). We also took full advantage of the grills on site, which were cleaner than my grill at home, and we grilled our lunch there several days and ate at the picnic tables provided. Nice is an understatement. We also enjoyed the spa while visiting and loved the convenience of walking from the spa to the pool for a relaxing nap. We don't have small children, however, it is a wonderful property for children full of activities.

In closing, we have stayed at several 5 star properties (Ritz, Montage,) on the island, and there is very little difference between the properties with the exception of the roominess at the Honua Kai.

You will NOT be disappointed staying in unit 436 and Honua Kai.

Awesome condo in paradise!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful holiday in Honua Kai Maui! Thank you Chris and Cheryl for sharing your lovely holiday home with us.

Right from the get go Chris was a pleasure to speak to. He was quick to answer any questions and very forth coming with details about the property. Once we booked, Chris sent through a list with recommendations for Maui which was very useful to help us plan our stay as there is so much to do.

The check-in process with Michelle was quick and simple, even with an international cell. Not too long after we had left the airport, we were settling into the beautifully appointed condo and soaking up the ocean views from the lanai.

We had 2 couples staying in the condo and there was plenty of space. Lots of spices and condiments to use during our stay which helped reduce the shopping list. We would recommend shopping at Costco after arriving at the airport. The price was much cheaper there compared to the local supermarkets (especially pineapple!).

I highly recommend booking through Chris and staying in U436. I only wish we had more time there!

Fantastic Stay!! Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

The entire process from start to finish was wonderful Chris, the owner, was very responsive to our e-mails and questions. We were a bit hesitant about booking online with somebody we didn't know . This was great - from start to finish! The unit itself was super clean with everything you can think of: Fully equipped kitchen and all kinds of beach toys, etc. We especially enjoyed the patio where we had many nice breakfasts and dinners , as we cooked some of our meals ourselves. We were met by the property manager at check-in and shown around the resort and and to get access to the unit. It was overall a super enjoyable vacation ! Thank You, Chris! We will be back!!!

Paradise Found

  • 5 of 5

Simply put, this unit was amazing. The amount of room that the unit had to spread around mixed with the fresh, clean feel was just so welcoming. This is a full two bedroom unit, unlike many calling themselves two bedroom, when one is just a bed in a closet, and it also had a sofa bed to truly sleep 6.

When we first talked to Chris, we could tell he was a forthright person who was proud of his vacation retreat. He obviously took the time to think about and provide everything he would like to have on a vacation, then made it available for our use. We felt like all we had to do was add family and the rest was taken care of.

This unit was beautiful inside and out. Being a corner unit, it had a lot more leg room, including windows to really make it light and bright. The lanai allowed for viewing the mountains to the East, which included afternoon rainbows, and a filtered ocean view to the West that provided amazing sunsets, which we tried to capture every night.

The amenities of the resort made us not want to leave, everything was so fun and easy. Three pools, hot tubs, Duke's restaurant, and the beach, all steps away.

Long story short, we were overly impressed and can't comment enough on what a good time was had by all. This was a complete vacation comfort package, not just a hotel room to spend nights in. The only drawback was we felt guilty leaving to explore Hawaii because of the fun we were missing at the resort. If only life's dilemmas were so tough... Mahalo!
