IMAGINE a Hawaiian vacation at Maui’s newest full ownership resort … where the sea, sand and gentle warm breezes welcome you.

KONEA is the newest tower, with a fire bowl water feature in the courtyard to enjoy the quiet of paradise and spectacular Maui sunsets.

All the amenities of a NEW unsurpassed LUXURIOUS HOTEL combined with the comfort, spaciousness and features of a private residence with FULLY EQUIPPED KITCHEN – no wonder HONUA KAI RESORT & SPA with its 38 acres of lush, landscaped grounds containing both tranquil areas and also an expansive aquatic playground is rated as one of the top beachfront luxury resorts in Maui.

From the moment you arrive, magnificent open lobbies with ocean views greet you and the lush landscaping with fragrant gardens and water features draw you further into a resort and spa with world class distinction.

Honua Kai has something for everyone…. a stunning infinity-edge pool with cabanas, aqua loungers, pool side beverage and food service, hot tubs, swim-under waterfalls, ‘lazy river’, quiet pool, and sandy bottom pool area with water slide, activity center with rentals, 10 outdoor Viking gas grills areas and on-site gourmet market and Duke's restaurant. … all of this and more and our unit is listed at competitive prices (typically far less than booking from the resort directly!)

About Maureen and Robert Parker

Robert and Maureen live in Canada and feel really fortunate to have a place in paradise at Honua Kai Resort and Spa and to be able to connect with so many wonderful guests! Growing up, Rob’s family had vacation homes in Maui for over 30 years and his family moved to Maui for a year when Rob was 13 years old. Rob and his sister went to school at King Kamehameha in Lahaina that year. Robert now owns his own construction company and Maureen is a Registered Clinical Counsellor. After marrying, Rob and Maureen chose Maui as the perfect place to celebrate their honeymoon and later stayed at Honua Kai Resort and Spa twice with their children before purchasing from the developer in 2013. Honua Kai Resort and Spa really feels like coming home.

With warm aloha,

Maureen and Robert

Maureen and Robert Parker purchased this studio in 2013

Why Maureen and Robert Parker chose Lahaina

Honua Kai Resort and Spa on Kaanapali Beach, Maui, has everything imaginable. Maui is such an amazing place with tropical great weather all year round (voted “Best Island” Conde Nast Traveler for 19 years) and Kaanapali Beach not only has less rain than other areas of Maui, but also a beautiful five mile stretch of soft sand and crystal clear, gentle water.

What makes this studio unique

Walking into Honua Kai Resort and Spa we feel the relaxed, aloha spirit of Hawaii. It’s a magical experience… we ease into the day with lattes or ice cream from A'ina market right in the resort and then either play at the pools, relax in the sun, go off on an adventure or find great shops to browse. We often end the day with a great home cooked feast using ingredients from Costco and local markets and end the day in a hot tub or with an evening stroll along the ocean boardwalk. We are never without our camera to capture wonderful memories to sustain us until our return to Maui.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We are nearing the end of our fabulous three week stay at Honua Kai Resort and Spa… somehow time seems different here in Maui…. there are many moments when time seems suspended, when one is lost in moments of pure joy, love and laughter and yet it seems like in a blink time has flown by, and only captured in a memory. The other morning I decided to ‘make the most’ of my morning walk and leave my camera in the condo so as to get a workout before starting my day. Hawaii has a way of teaching many lessons if one is open. Rob decided to join me this morning and humoured my need to walk briskly but by the time we reached Black Rock he had convinced me to leave the walking path and kick off our shoes and meander along the shoreline – the water was just cool enough to be refreshing as it gently caressed our ankles and invited us to enjoy the moment.



From years of boating, Rob has picked up the habit of always scanning the ocean and he suddenly spotted dolphins off shore. They were only about a block out and travelled along the edge with us, all the while jumping and spinning while we made our way along the beach. Like a pied piper, the spinning dolphins collected many followers along the way back till we finally reached Honua Kai and like the finale at the fireworks they exploded in unison jumping and spinning before heading off to Lanai. We headed off also but to Ãina for our morning latte, still spouting about our experience, when an outrigger guide shared that he saw the spinning dolphins from the water and from his viewpoint there were around 300 of them! Hawaii is teaching me to slow down, smell the plumeria flowers, take time to stroll along the water’s edge, and be open to the gifts that Maui offers.



We just purchased our brand new condo from the developer and really enjoyed spending quality time in our vacation home and can't wait to come back! We loved starting each day on our lanai looking out to the ocean nibbling on local pineapple, mango and apple bananas topped with yogurt and granola. We enjoyed the sun filled days at the pools or Kaanapali Beach and explored close-by sights like the blowhole and canopy topped jungle valleys within a half an hour drive! We are really excited about sharing our vacation home in paradise with wonderful guests and hearing about their wonderful experiences. Honua Kai Resort and Spa is a really magical place!

Anniversary Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I honeymooned in Maui 20 years ago and couldn't think of a better place to celebrate our anniversary. We've done some traveling over the years but have never stayed at a vacation rental property before. Maureen and Robert's condo was absolutely perfect for our getaway. I knew immediately after speaking with Maureen that we found our place! Honua Kai resort and the condo are both even more beautiful than the pictures, and the staff were so friendly and helpful. They have taken so much care and pride in making their condo the perfect place to stay. We were so thankful for the helpful information provided about the unit, the resort, maps, places of interest, as well as a completely stocked condo with everything you could possibly need. We used the boogie boards, beach chairs, beach umbrella, and cooler that they provided every day as we explored a different beach. We got to snorkel for the very first time at Kaanapali Beach (in front of the resort) which was amazing and still remains as my favorite beach. If you love to walk or run, the beachwalk is perfect for those early morning runs or romantic evening strolls. Duke's restaurant on site was an added bonus, with breakfast, lunch, happy hour and supper a few steps away if you didn't feel like driving or cooking. I truly can't say enough wonderful things about our entire stay. Too bad we can't squeeze our entire family into your condo for out next trip! Thank you Maureen, Robert and Michelle for everything. We have fallen in love with Maui all over again and definitely won't be waiting 20 years to come back!

Great condo and location. Wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The location and unit were perfect for a couple celebrating their 25th anniversary and a 50th birthday! Maureen and Candace made it very easy from the time of booking and through the stay. The amenities, location and condo were well represented on VRBO. Would highly recommend to friends and family for future Maui vacations....we will be back soon!

Paradise Found!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from 9 glorious days at Honua Kai! After looking at many VRBO options, we settled on Suite 315 in the Konea tower. Maureen went above and beyond to make sure our stay met and exceeded our expectations. The unit was very well equipped with lots of extras to make our stay even more enjoyable. We were very impressed with the property both esthetically and practically. It was like staying in a fabulous all-inclusive resort with the added benefit of not having to go out for every meal.

We would highly recommend Maureen and Robert’s suite to anyone looking for a very special place to experience this beautiful part of the world!

It was perfect! Great location! Close to beautiful beaches and awesome restaurants beautiful condo and complex!!!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review and your emails letting us know that everything was perfect - we work very hard to make sure everything is always perfect for all of our guests! Naturally because we care, we are disappointed when we only get 4 stars but thanks for the reassurance that you had a wonderful time, loved our unit, the resort & the area. Honua Kai Resort & Spa just refurbished all four pools so not only is it the newest privately owned resort in Maui (in the past 30 years at lower than other resort prices) it even has sparkly brand new pools - won't be a well kept secret for long!! The Fall is always a good time to book as the prices are at their lowest but there is never an 'off' season in Maui!

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

We were thrilled with our time at Konea 315! I am pretty picky about the cleanliness of places we stay. I was happy to find this room very clean and well maintained. The beach chairs and cooler bag came in handy. The location made trips to the pool and the ocean easy. Bob and Maureen were a pleasure to work with, and having Candice as our on-island help was fabulous too!

We appreciate this as we take great care & pride – we frequently visit our vacation home to ensure that it is even more immaculate than when we first purchased it from the developers a few years ago. I will pass along to our fantastic cleaning team your appreciation of their hard work – they really are incredibly meticulous and we are so glad that you also found our local Maui contacts helpful. We all work together as a team to provide our guests with the best experience possible. So glad you had such great stay & enjoyed your ‘adult time’ at your best friend’s wedding at Honua Kai – Maui is such a magical romantic place! With warm aloha, Maureen & Robert

Great Balcony View!

  • 5 of 5

Such a beautiful view from the balcony w/ a beautiful room to match. My wife and I were very impressed w/ the meticulously kept condo. Candice was a gracious host, and Maureen is a delightful as well as a very well-organized owner. We enjoyed our daily stroll along the beach, and hanging out in the clear blue ocean. The property is centrally located w/ easy access to great restaurants, Lahaina, Kapalua, and supermarkets. Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to stay on Maui.
