Lahaina Condo Rental Photos and Description

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.

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 area to enjoy one of the several Viking Grills. Failing that we take a stroll down the boardwalk to one of many restaurants or head into Lahaina if we want to dine out. Another great feature is the boardwalk that separates the Honua Kai from the beach. We like to take a morning stroll towards Black Rock and Whaler's Village.

NOTE:

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

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.

Owners

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.

Condo

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.

Location

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.)

Beautiful--great owners!

  • 5 of 5

Jill was so responsive! I emailed several owners via condo rental sites and Jill was the first to respond, and her communication stayed great throughout the entire time we stayed at her condo. Condo was immaculate-I didn't even feel the need to wipe everything down with antibacterial wipes like I normally do when we rent places:) Would definitely rent from Jill and Terry again!

Great place to stay in Maui!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Honua Kai a couple years ago when we got married and decided to come back to celebrate our 2 year anniversary. Unfortunately the hotel side was booked so we looked to VRBO to find an unit that was available. I'm so glad we found Jill and Terry's unit! From the moment that I requested an inquiry on VRBO, i received a phone call from Jill. Wow, that was fast! Communication was great leading up and during our stay.

The unit was beautiful, fully stocked with cooking supplies and utensils, and we used the beach chairs every day. We appreciated that the unit was at the far end of the building and facing the parking lot (and peek-a-boo view of the ocean) so it was SUPER quiet. We walked to the store and restaurants and ran on the boardwalk each morning. Great location, great unit, and great owners. Thanks Jill & Terry for a great stay!

My husband and I picked this location (based on the exceptional reviews) to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary and we weren't disappointed. The condo was fantastic! We loved it and all the amenities that we could have required, they have it all. It's a nice quiet part of the complex and if that's the kind of environment you seek, this is it. Our favourite was the lanai of course, and it was so nice to sit out in the evenings with the doors open, music on, and the wine poured. The boardwalk and beach walk (which goes all the way to Whaler's Village) was our daily workout with runs and walks. So much to see along the way!

At our resort we made plenty use of the pool and beach. The entire grounds are gorgeous, the pools lovely, and the scenery is stunning. We preferred the beach because it was less busy then the pools and hearing the constant waves is music to the ears. If you are lucky like we were, the giant turtles would slowly swim by and poke their heads out of the water for air - pretty cool. There is a market on site called "Aina Market" that has great snacks and the best lattes I've ever had. Duke's Restaurant is really good and the service is spot-on. A nice location for Happy Hour too!

The weather was great overall but there were a couple days of super strong trade winds which apparently affected all the islands. We took a drive up to Hana on one of the iffy days and THAT was quite the experience! Glad we did it, but not sure I'd do it again. By the time we were heading back, I was so done with all the twisting and tight turns, but it is definitely a must-see in Maui.

We had a great 10 days there and we would love to return again some day, especially to this exact spot. It's our third trip to the islands in 4 years and with the other trips we've taken elsewhere, Hawaii is our favourite vacation place.

Honua Kai Vacation in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We could have not had a better experience. The owners, Jill and Terry responded quickly with from our first inquiry through the day we had to leave their beautiful property. We could not think of another thing they could have added to the property to make it any better. The fully stocked kitchen, living room,dining room, walkout to the lanai had such spacious feel. The bedroom was so comfortable. The bathroom was roomy and clean. The entire property was tastefully decorated.

The Honua Kai resort had everything we could want. We were able to grill a couple of nights, all the utensils and seasoning were there along with a highchair for our grandson. In the evening after our grandson went to bed in the pack and play available in the unit, we would open the lanai doorway and enjoy playing cards.

All beach supplies were available. Beach towels, beach chairs, umbrella, snorkeling equipment, beach toys and a childs life jacket if you needed it.

There was a full laundry room.

Jill and Terry made it easy to check in. Full directions to contact our greeter who met us at the resort. The information book was very helpful.

There was convenient grocery and souvenir shopping across the street.

We highly recommend this rental unit.
