About Mimi

Our family currently resides in the SF bay area and we are a multicultural and multilingual family coming from 3 different continents.

Mimi purchased this condo in 2013

Why Mimi chose Maui

We have lived and have traveled all over the world for many years. There is nothing quite like the Hawaiian islands, and within Hawaii we just fell in love with Maui as it has the perfect blend of natural beauty, excitement, and amenities.

We stayed at the Honua Kai for just one week in early 2013 and loved it so much that we decided to buy this unit right then and there. The resort is by far the newest beachfront property on Kanaapali and among the newest in all of Maui. We believe it is the perfect luxurious and yet laid back family vacation spot in paradise, offering fully equipped spacious condos with full four-star resort amenities.

What makes this condo unique

- Ground floor unit with spacious lanai and own private lawn

- Special tropical landscaping around lawn provide added privacy

- Short stroll down to the beach

- Similarly easy access to pools, Koi pond for morning fish feedings (great fun for kids), BBQ areas, etc

Guestbook comments from the owner

My family and I had a fantastic time. Our only complaint was that we should have stayed longer!

The unit was perfect for our family. Well stocked with everything we needed. My 19month toddler loved being able to run out the lanai and onto the boardwalk without taking the elevator. No complaints whatsoever.

Fantastic condo and better customer service

  • 5 of 5

Mimi, is a phenomenal owner who provides exceptional customer service. We were on vacation to celebrate a work retirement and wedding anniversary, and sadly our building, and the neighboring property, had some unexpected construction that caused a great deal of noise. Mimi was kind enough to offer us a discounted rate because of the inconvenience.

The condo and location was still incredible and our overall experience was only accented by her generosity.

We had a great getaway and I'd highly recommend any of my friends and family stay at Mimi's condo.

Great resort, right on the ocean. First floor unit for easy access.

  • 4 of 5

This unit was top notch inside. Beautifully furnished, quality kitchen equipment and nice and comfy beds and sofa. It is ground floor, so you can just hop on the path and get to the ocean or Duke's, a nice restaurant within the resort. The staff to welcome us were timely and friendly. We really enjoyed our stay. The pools are nice, and at night tiki torches abound and the pools are well lit. The landscaping is very well done. Would give it 5 stars, but there is some construction going on blocking what would have been a knock-out view. But the easy access to beach, front of resort and restaurant help make up for that. There are showers right off the beach to rinse off sand. Snorkeled right off beach in front of resort. It would be a great place for a family or friends retreat.

Absolutely gorgeous, great location!

  • 5 of 5

From the beginning, Mimi, Albert and Monty were very accommodating and thorough about the condo, rental agreement, and construction next door. The condo itself is amazing! Spacious, updated, comfortable and near the beach- what more could I ask for! The price is right since the lanai is about 50 feet from the beach. It was so wonderful waking up super early (eastern time zone jet lag) drinking coffee while listening to the ocean or taking a short walk down the boardwalk. Monty and Mimi were always available for questions and provided an abundant of information about the condo itself and things to do on the island. I do wish the construction was finished, but that was out of anyone's control. It really didn't impact our vacation, especially since we were gone most of the day. I would highly recommend this condo!

Another wonderful stay at the perfect paradise getaway

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this unit at Honua Kai several times and always have an amazing time. Having stayed at numerous luxury resorts on all of the main Hawai'ian islands, we love this place the best above all others.

I think three things really put this unit over the top: First, situated on the ground floor, it provides easy access just from the lanai to both the beach and the pools, which is awesome, especially if you have kids. And, having the beautifully landscaped lanai outside (instead of a just a balcony) makes for a much better "Hawai'i-feeling" and also gives good privacy. Second, being fully equipped with all kitchen tools and the like, it makes for budget-friendly meals. We also used the BBQ pits (again, just a <1 minute walk away) extensively as well. Third, the location is just about perfect. Quiet, with a gorgeous beach just outside, yet close to Lahaina or Whaler's Village. Having the grocery store very close, and Duke's (a great restaurant) just beyond the pool are just added boni.

To address the construction issue: During our stay this time, work at the new Westin next door was just around its peak time. Still, while noise was noticeable outside, with the windows closed, it was barely audible indoors; all in all it almost didn't affect us at all. I'm expecting that when the Westin does open, there'll be some nice landscaping and the view and atmosphere will be even nicer than before.

Great, accessible, family vacation unit!

  • 5 of 5

My wife, daughter and I shared this ground floor condo this Feb 2017 for a 5 day vacation in Maui at the recommendation of friends (who also stayed in the same unit the year prior). It absolutely met our needs. The building and grounds of Honua Kai are beautiful. This unit allows easy access to the pool, barbecues, beach, running/walking path, and Duke's restaurant without ever having to navigate stairs or elevator. With a toddler, this was perfect for us.

The unit also served as a great hosting space, since both sets of our parents were also staying in the Honua Kai as well. We cooked & ate meals together in our living room and outdoor porch, with plenty of room to spare.

Next time that we return to Maui and Kaanapali, we will definitely consider the Honua Kai and this unit!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this lovely condo in maui.

Very convenient to beach,pool,and lobby with general store.

It feels very private in spite of central location.

The beds are wonderful as is the bathroom set up.

I will definately stay there again!!

We enjoyed Duke's restaurant take out option because eating outside on lanai

Was fun.

Thanks mimi!!
