Maui has it all!

We live in Southern California and our family has been visiting Hawaii regularly for the last 15-plus years. We have always considered Maui a home away from home.
We finally decided to buy a place and we could not be happier~ We would love to share our 'Home away from Home' with you~
This (pictured) is Jill Marzo our on island host.
Jill Marzo purchased this condo in 2012
After a year and a half long search, I was introduced to the brand new Honua Kai Resort in Kaanapali! Although I live on the Mainland, I was befriended by some very special Maui residents who were instrumental in helping me with my condo purchase and setting up this vacation rental - the best realtor on Maui and the best property manager on the Island! (Please call me for their information).
We chose Honua Kai because of its beachfront location, its contemporary yet traditional 'Hawaiian' ambiance and the wonderful amenities available at the Resort. The location could not be better~ Kaanapali, Napili, Kapalua and Lahaina close by for wonderful outings. Honua Kai is truly paradise here and we know you will enjoy our Island retreat as much as we do.
We had a very enjoyable time staying in the property. It was very well managed. Any questions were promptly responded to, which can always be a concern, so that was wonderful. Beautiful unit, building, and landscaping. Excellent beach access. We could literally be ON the beach in less than a few minutes from our rental unit. Parking can be a bit tight in the underground parking area, but we always found a spot available when we parked.
The Times supermarket across the street is REALLY convenient and is walkable, but beware crossing the street and wear running shoes if the cross traffic is heavy. They use only paper bags in supermarkets in Maui, so you may want to bring your own plastic bags or reusable bags with you. Tip: Try the Sterling Silver brand beef at the Times market! It's the best ever, and cheap! The other groceries are very expensive, even the local fruit, which was unexpected.
I loved the resort's flowers, the plants, the local frogs, the beach access, the super-friendly valets (they know everything about the area, so ask questions!) and the lanai. Opening the doors in the morning and stepping out into that island air in the morning was wonderful! Funny stray cats all over the resort and Maui in general. They seemed as relaxed as I was!
Everything we needed, other than food, was already stocked in the unit, which was great. There were some condiments in the fridge that we used as well. For rental snorkel gear, use Snorkel Bob's, which has many locations, including across the street by the Times supermarket. You can return your rental gear at ANY Snorkel Bob's location, even on other islands!
I would absolutely stay in this unit again. Everything functioned well, and the excellent management made a big difference! I attest that the other positive reviews for this unit are indeed accurate.
The hardest thing about the trip (we were there seven nights) was forcing myself to leave paradise! That was very, very hard.
This is the second time we have booked this unit. Jill and her team always do a great job of making sure everything is taken care of. The unit is very clean and nice! It has everything you need. We had two adults and two kids use the unit for 12 nights with lots of room.
The unit was very well equipped with pretty much everything you would need. Very clean and modern.
The Honua Kai is a great spot if you have kids. Very kid friendly and lots of young families there. Great location, close to shopping, restaurants, etc... If you don't have kids and want a quieter destination, then you'll probably want to look somewhere else. Really just depends on what you are looking for. My wife and I were traveling without kids and spent a week here followed by 5 days in Kapalua. We preferred the spot with fewer people (Kapalua) but I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Honua Kai for families or larger groups. Jill was great at providing instructions and being available via phone when we had a few questions.
Condo was perfect for my wife and I. Location was great and the suite had everything that we needed from beach chairs, cooler, snorkel equipment and boogie boards. Kitchen and appliances are top notch and include everything for a wonderful stay. Jill was very responsive and took care of our special needs. I would highly recommend renting this condo. Honua Kai is fabulous and we can't wait to come back.
Like all the other reviews, we were very happy we chose this condo and resort for our trip to Maui. Jill and her staff were very easy to work with and took care of our requests (an extra blanket, extra keys) immediately. There were four of us in the condo (our kids are 13 and 15) and so we used the fold out sofa and we brought an air mattress from home and Jill provided an extra set of sheets for us that were there waiting when we arrived. It was a little tight, but MUCH better than a hotel room, and the kitchen was perfect. If you are not the type to spend much time in your room, then this was a good set up. Finally, on the day we checked out, my husband realized he left some items behind. Jill's cleaner had found the items and kept them and met us the next day at Honua Kai so we could retrieve them. We were very appreciative of her doing this. All in all, great resort, awesome room location and a great stay.
This condo was PERFECT for our vacation! Hubby and I were spending a week in Maui to celebrate our 10th anniversary, had ideas about what we wanted to rent, and did a lot of research (ask me about my spreadsheet - ha!):
Close to Ka'anapali/Lahaina
Updated, newer furnishings
No-hassle check in
Resort with bar service at the pool
Beautiful views on lanai
Didn't want to get bombarded by "real estate" sales
We found this studio to fit that bill, and then some! From the initial inquiry to check-out, Jill was attentive and available. Once the final payment was made, she sent us the easy directions for accessing the property. No need to check in at the front desk, just go up to the room and get your vacation self on! We never had to encounter (read, turn down) a real estate person trying to give you a free root beer float to attend a timeshare sales meeting. The studio condo itself is great - comfy bed, full kitchen (coffee maker, sharp knives, blender, etc.) and we felt very at-home there. Ideally, we would have liked more of the ocean in full view, (don't we all) but we figured that a resort isn't gonna waste its high-money views on studio rooms, so if you want more ocean in view, you'd have to pay more for a bigger condo or penthouse. We were perfectly happy and not put-out to look upon the well-kept grounds immediately below and in front of us, and the ocean beyond. We saw rainbows, heard the birds, listened to the water feature....ahhhhh, paradise.
The first day, I called Jill about the fridge (in the end, it was user error, ha!) and she called maintenance and had the issue resolved before noon. She is local, and gives you her number in every email, so you know she's there for you.
I am really glad we stayed at this property, and hopefully will be back!
