About Mimi

We are a young family living in the SF bay area. My husband grew up in Europe and I grew up in Asia and we decided to raise our family in the U.S.

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

- Very private setting within resort

- 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.

Amazing time at Honua Kai- Hokulani #112

  • 5 of 5

Just returned home from our trip to Maui and our stay at Honua Kai- Hokulani #112. From the onset, owner Mimi was great, answering emails promptly, giving excellent instruction and maps. On arrival, we were met by Monty the property manager who made us feel like royalty. He directed valets/porters to park our and to bring all our stuff to the room. He showed us around the Honua Kai and the condo. It was in a perfect location, first floor with a path leading right to some of the best snorkeling on Maui. The condo was exceptionally clean, and stocked with everything we needed. The "beach closet" was great, filled with chairs and other beach supplies. Beds were very comfortable, and the ceiling fans and AC kept the unit very comfortable. Speaking of great snorkeling at the beach which was a 3 minute walk from the unit; we saw turtles, rays, eels and all the Hawaiian fish you would expect to see. Don't worry about the construction going on across from the Honua Kai. We never heard any noise from it and it never impacted our stay or enjoyment. We highly recommend unit 112 and will want to stay there next time we return to Maui!

Wonderful Accommodations in Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay immensely at this beautifully appointed condo unit! The owner & property manager were both fabulous and very responsive to all of our inquiries & needs from beginning to end.

We were a party of two couples traveling on vacation together & having our own en suite master bedrooms and lovely shared living space was the cherry on top of a great vacation on Maui! The ground floor location of the condo was ideal for quick access to the beach/pools, complete with beautifully landscaped lawns & a nice outdoor living space on the lanai.

The Houna Kai resort & amenities were great to have at our fingertips & the Duke's within walking distance can't be beat for a great cocktail during sunset.

In summary, we cannot wait to plan a return trip! :) Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the condo 3/24/2016-4/1/2016 and it was a great choice. My family which is myself, my husband, 2 boys (16 and 12) all stayed in the condo and I would definitely plan a spring break in Maui again and only stay at this condo, my husband and my boy's said that this is one of their top 5 vacations (they have traveled a lot) and I believe location is a huge factor. Extremely comfortable, everything we needed including space, kitchen supplies, washer and dryer, 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.

We spent many days waking up early and doing activities such as surfing, whale watching, sunrise at the volcano, road to Hana, even a segway tour (all which were amazing)and the condo was perfect to hang out at during those times when we were tired of running. Perfect place for my boys to relax, watch TV and play video games when they were tired while my husband and I read by the pool. Beautiful complex. I can't say enough good things about the home away from home. Perfect location. Check in was super easy with Monty, very clean and well maintained.

Construction was not an issue. They were starting to build above the fence right in front of us and I did sit outside during the day a couple of times when I would have thought it would have been the loudest and it did not bother me at all. We do live in a very urban area though so we are completely used to noise and it seemed quiet compared to typical "city" noise, no issues with construction for us.

The beach is the best part of Maui and the condo. Right in front of the complex it is somewhat rocky but just to the left it was perfect for playing in the waves and you can walk all the way down the beach on a path, which I did every morning before sun up, great running path. The path leads past Blackrock where Kaanapali, which we spent a couple of days at, tons of fun.

Being on the first floor is an added bonus, would definitely stay again.

Dream stay at the Honua Kai Resort

  • 5 of 5

• Great accommodations: We were greeted by the property manager and given a tour of the two bedroom – two bathroom condo and amenities. The space was clean and well stocked with towels and other toiletries. The entire condo had a modern design with the use of high-end materials and the bathrooms boosted separate showers and large tubs. Bring the outside in with the wall to wall sliding glass doors, which opened to a patio and yard space, but still felt very private. And then the beach was just down the way, we checked in and went out.

• On-Sight: Ocean beach nearby where I witnessed the birth of a whale. Onsite coffee shop with a variety of supplies. Pools onsite, but we avoided it as there seemed to be a high density of young children, besides the ocean was more inviting. We enjoyed a great dinner at Duke’s Beach House. And if you want to relax, check out the spa – my massage was perfect.

• Nearby: Times Supermarket is a short walk from the resort. We came with a large group and many of the guest stayed at other resorts, I liked walking to meet up using the beach front path. If you are up for the journey you can walk to The Whaler’s Village (30 – 45 min). The kids did zip lines and my husband rented surf boards nearby for a reasonable price.

• Improvements: Construction going on next door. This was completely disclosed to us so no surprise. During our stay the noise did not bother us, but it did create a lot of dust on the patio.

Very good.

  • 4 of 5

The condo was great. A beautiful room lots of space. The construction was more than I expected, they start at 7:00am but finish at 3:00pm. They also work on Saturdays, lots of dust you need to wash the deck furniture and deck everyday or you track in red dust. During the morning and day you cannot enjoy the lanai due to noise and dust. It was nice to have water toys, umbrellas and lawn chairs for your use in the condo. The wash and dryer is great as well except the dryer takes forever to dry. The beach and rest of the property is fantastic, good pools and Dukes is a great place to eat. Close to all amenities. I would definitely recommend this property even with the construction next door which should be complete in 2017.

Owner's Response: Dear Patrick, Thank you very much for submitting a wonderful review for us. We are glad that you had a good time but very sorry to hear that the dust and noise level was more than what others have experienced. We actually just received the construction schedule and it stated that the structures of the buildings directly in front of us are breaking ground now and will be completed by May 31, 2016. We would assume following that the interior work and the exterior finishes for these buildings will only cause very minimal disturbances as far as dusts and noises are concerned. Thank you for your understanding and we really have tried hard to communicate the situation with all our guests so the guests are fully aware and are able to plan ahead and still have good time there. Thank you so much again for staying with us and we hope you will return to Honua Kai soon! Best, Mimi
