About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Aloha! Welcome to Paradise!

Located in the newer, Quiet, Konea Tower!

Welcome to the Honua Kai Resort and Spa, Maui’s newest luxury beach front resort. Located in West Maui, North Ka’anapali Beach has been voted one of the top 10 of beaches in the world. This complex, which opened in 2010, is simply amazing and comprises 43 acres of manicured tropical landscaping. The Honua Kai has open air lobbies with ocean views, a fitness center with state of the art equipment, infinity pool with cabanas, aqua loungers and hot tubs, lazy river, a kids area pool with sand bottom, grotto and a water slide, all overlooking the back drop of the Ocean.

We also have another 1 Bedroom the same suite same location is VRBO #375968. If you need a second suite or this one is already booked, please check it out. If you need something a little larger or both our 1 bedrooms are booked check out our 1 bedroom and den at VRBO # 554771 which comfortably sleeps 6 people.

Many travelers have commented that the inner courtyard suites,while beautiful, have lanais that face each other, are close together and generally they feel that privacy is somewhat lacking. Others are concerned about the construction on the south side of the other tower. Our suite is in the newer Konea tower on the quiet side overlooking tranquil Honoapi'ilani Park which provides privacy and quiet enjoyment while still maintaining partial Ocean Views! The picture from the lanai is the actual view, it is not taken with a zoom lens.

Ho'ola Spa is now open in our Konea tower. From Massage & many treatments to the Himalayan Salt Spa room it has it all.

The suite is the extra large 780 sq. ft. plan with soaker tub, separate shower and double sinks in the bathroom. It has a Partial Ocean Views from the 140 sq.ft. lanai. This is “turn key” with a gourmet kitchen with every utensil supplied and featuring Bosch stainless steel appliances and granite counter tops. The large master bedroom has a king size bed plus an HD TV, a huge ensuite bath with separate shower and tub and his and hers sinks. The living room has a queen size pull out couch, flat screen HD TV with Blu Ray player & a dining room area.

Also have a Roku device (Similar to Apple TV) hooked up for Netflix , Fox News & games like Angry Birds for your enjoyment.

About Jill

Aloha, we are Terry and Jill, we are Realtors and we have been coming to Hawaii since the 1980's. We used love Waikiki but now we find that West Maui in general, and the Honua Kai Resort in particular, take the Hawaiian experience to a whole new level.

We love living in Vancouver B.C. but this place is exactly what we dreamed about in a 'home away from home'.

Jill purchased this condo in 2012

Why Jill chose Maui

As Realtors we believe that it is all about location. (cliched but true) We scouted out several areas in Maui but found that the combination of easy access from the airport, beach front access, proximity to shopping, Whaler's Village and Lahaina made the location ideal. When you add in all that the Honua Kai Resort has to offer is was a 'no brainer'.

We purchased # 244 Konea in 2011 ( VRBO 375968) and were so happy with it that we decided to purchase a second one.

What makes this condo unique

We love gourmet cooking and we find that having a fully stocked kitchen with everything from the salad spinner to the martini shaker was ideal for us. When we land at OGG we grab the rental car and then drive 1 block to Costco and load up. In the afternoon we will relax by the pool and then usually hit Duke's for Happy Hour to have a cocktail and an appie and listen to a little live Hawaiian music. We follow that up with some time on our lanai before either firing up the stove or heading to the bar-be-cue areas that feature many Viking Grills.If dining out is the plan we take a stroll down the boardwalk to one of many restaurants along the way or head into Lahaina. The boardwalk that separates the Honua Kai from the beach also comes in handy in the morning. We like to grab a coffee at Aina Market and take a leisurely stroll towards Black Rock and Whaler's Village. For those that love to run or jog the boardwalk is a scenic treat.


We are rated 'Excellent' & also 'Recommended'!

Perfect Getaway Spot

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful well kept unit, and comes fully stocked with everything you need, including all your beach needs. A quiet location in the resort overlooking a green space and surprisingly great ocean views from the lanai. The owners Jill and Terry are very helpful every step of the way and an absolute pleasure to deal with. This place is a real gem, you will not be disappointed!!

Awesome condo, amazing stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our very first trip to Maui and thanks to Jill and Terry, and their clean, comfy condo, it turned to be one of the best trips for our family.

Booking was super easy just by email; I did not even need to make a phone call to Jill or Terry as they responded very quickly to me and answered all my questions, concerns in a very professional way. They provided me with all the instructions before the booking, after the reservation was made, prior to arrival and also during our stay. communication was super easy with Jill through both email and text (after our arrival there); when we arrived, we met Diana, their representative at Maui and she welcomed us, showed us the condo and provided us with the map and many more useful information that we needed once we arrived.

The condo was amazing, lanai had ocean views (although you are on 2nd floor) and it was on the quieter side of the Konea building (newer building at the Honua Kai); the condo has many beach stuff (snorkel gear, boogie board, kids beach stuff, beach shoes, at least 4 beach chairs and 3 beach umbrellas), definitely more than you will need during your stay; it also had the cooler box which was really useful for us; the kitchen has all the amenities you need to cook; they also provided us with the beach towels and there were many more towels in the bathroom.

overall, everything was perfect for the condo and we were super happy that we chose this condo and this resort for our stay.

The resort has many swimming pools that you can choose from but they are not huge; few hot tubs and many chairs on the pool side to relax and enjoy the sun. the Beach in front of the resort is rocky and we did not feel like going in, so we drove just 10 minutes and went to a nearby beach with no coral/rocks; however, it's a good spot to snorkel and if you walk across the beach you will find better spots less rocky.

The resort has a Spa, that we used once, as well as a small market but within only a 5 minute walking distance, you will find big market to do grocery for your stay.

In short, amazing trip, awesome condo, great owners to deal with. thanks again, I definitely recommend and will go back again.

Beautiful property in Kaanapali

  • 5 of 5

Jill and Terry were great to work with. We stayed Dec 31-January 7 2017. They respond very quickly to questions. We even locked ourselves our of the room one day and they handled it quickly and without any inconvenience on us. We loved having the full kitchen and a washer while we were there. The unit was well kept and well stocked. The boogie boards and beach chairs were a nice addition as well. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. Thanks,

Even with some problems - still great

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I arrived and the guy that was supposed to meet us was not there. That was not cool. He finally arrived. He gave a lame excuse for being late even though I was texting him when we would be there he still managed to make us wait a bit which is no fun once you've been traveling 15 hours to get there. But we got the keys and moved on. Funny thing was that on check out day he was Johnny on the spot to make sure we were checking out on time!

The unit was very nice. However, the AC was not working upon arrival, but Jill was great in getting it fixed right away. Then the dryer wouldn't work either - but again got it fixed right away So even though there were some problems Jill was quick to fix.

My wife and I love Hanua Kai. Its perfect for us in every way. Dukes is awesome. HK is really a first class place. Second time staying at HK. And for this unit I would have easily gave stars if not for the guy with the keys that was supposed to meet us and some of the issues dealing with getting things fixed. Its a great unit and everything you would expect from HK. So I only did four stars - but maybe it was just my luck that this stuff broke down on my visit.

Highly recommend.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful experience staying at this condo. The owners were great to work with and the unit was very comfortable, clean, and very well stocked. The entire complex was well maintained and had a number of pools, falls, and even a water slide. The location was beachfront and we really enjoyed walking the boardwalk to Whalers Village. We would stay here again.

We highly recommend this condo, this resort and these owners!

  • 5 of 5


Jill and Terry were the most attentive and helpful owners throughout the entire process, starting with answering our questions before we booked including checking in about our comfort throughout our stay. They are realtors, which led us to believe that they would invest their time and money into a place that they loved and included all aspects of a vacation home they were looking for, and we were right. Their attention to detail and quick response time during our due diligence was amazing. These factors put you at ease immediately and when you arrive, they have a binder full of key information for anything that you can possibly think of. It’s this type of effort from an owner that enables guests to have such a carefree stay. We can’t speak highly enough about working with Jill and Terry.


The unit was clean, included top of the line appliances (fridge, dishwasher, washer/dryer) and had a beautiful separate bathtub and shower. Everything you would need or could imagine was already in the condo, from cookware, grill accessories, spices, snorkel gear, boogie board, cooler, and beach towels & toys. We didn’t bring our children, but noticed there was a port-a-crib and space saver highchair. They even provided Roku and Netflix. You literally only had to bring your clothes. By far, the most amazing feature of the entire unit is the lanai which opened entirely to make the outside part of the living room. We had a view of the beach and sunset, and spent every morning relaxing with breakfast in the comfort of the patio furniture.

Honua Kai

Great resort, excellent outdoor restaurant onsite (Duke’s). Three (3) primary pools near the Konea Tower that never seemed to fill up. The resort & grounds are clean, well maintained and above all, quiet, calm and peaceful compared to the much louder and crowded resorts south of Black Rock. There is a beach walkaway starting at this resort which stretches all of Ka’anapali Beach. The resort has Viking grills for use as well. Daily garage parking is also offered by the hotel and we would highly recommend it. Skip taking the elevator and take the stairs as the unit is so close to direct access to not only the parking garage but the grills and pools. You can also catch the bus from the Hokulani Tower into Lahaina.


We loved the location of this resort (north of the crowded, busier Kaanpali resorts) but even more due to its location near stores outside the resort (Fish Market, etc.)
