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 from our PRIVATE LANAI (rather than the shared common lanais).

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 with both tranquil areas & 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 & the lush landscaping with fragrant gardens & water features draw you further into a resort & spa with world class distinction.

Honua Kai has something for everyone…. a stunning infinity-edge pool with cabanas, loungers, pool side beverage & food service, hot tubs, swim-under waterfalls, ‘lazy river’, quiet pool, & pool area with water slide. Ocean directly in front of the resort for swimming, lounging or snorkeling... just steps from the unit. There are 10 outdoor Viking gas grills areas & a convenience store plus Duke's restaurant on site … all of this and more plus our unit is listed at competitive prices (typically far less than booking from the resort directly!)

**** Our unit is OCEAN-SIDE

A short distance from the devastation from the fires but you would never know it except you pass by the area. First class stay.

Amazing stay at the Honua Kai in Maui. We are frequent visitors of Maui but typically stay at the Ritz Carlton Kapalua. This time, we decided to try a condo property because we had family meeting us in Maui. This property did not disappoint. From the moment I booked the condo, the owners were magnificent. Their attention to detail, the description and pictures of the property were exactly as described on VRBO and the property was extra clean. The owners were on top of every detail and the condo had everything and more we needed for our stay. I have stayed at many VRBO properties in the past, but have never experienced this type of five-star customer service from other properties and owners. As an example, my husband left his wedding ring on the counter and we didn't realize it until we were at the airport. Maureen and Rob were right on top of it. They called their cleaning team, the ring was recovered and they spent hours ensuring the ring arrived safely to our home. If you are looking for a great condo on this side of the island, book it! You will enjoy the beautiful property, the beach, the pool, the restaurant and the view from your room. Highly recommend!

I could not have asked for a better place to stay in Maui, even tho we were there during the wild fires the resort handled everything with ease and helps us stay calm. The owners of this vrbo go above and beyond to make sure you are comfortable and are extremely kind!!

We loved our stay in this beautiful condo. Very clean well taken care of studio. We loved that there were beach chairs, boogie boards and coolers for us to use instead of having to buy or rent them. Maureen made sure we had everything we needed. She even had a gift basket waiting for us upon our arrival. We love the resort amenities and location as well. Will definitely be back to stay in this unit again. Thank you for making our 30th wedding anniversary perfect.

We stayed at this condo last month for our anniversary vacation. It was exactly as advertised. This condo is beautiful, clean and well-appointed. It was perfect for a couple. We had plenty of room for our belongings. We loved spending lazy mornings having coffee on the Lanai. The view from there is beautiful. We loved the resort and all the amenities. Maureen was so great at communicating with us before and during the trip. She checked in with us after we checked in to see if we needed anything. She has a great album in the condo with information about restaurants, tours and activities on the island. I highly recommend renting this unit. You won’t be disappointed. The only bad part was leaving after 10 days!

I have never experienced the level of customer service as I did with Maureen. She takes such pride in her unit. Once I got there, I understood why. The unit is absolutely gorgeous! High end everything. Maureen called me just after booking and wanted to get to know me. She messaged me the day we arrived and she felt more like a friend. This is the only unit I will rent next time I come to Maui. Thank you Maureen for making this trip so special with my mom. I will recommend your unit to all my friends! Mahalo!!!!!

Absolutely a beautiful and amazing property!! The resort is beautifully landscaped and amazing views. The condo is very clean and very well maintained. The kitchen is very well equipped.

Room was just what my girlfriend and I needed. Not to big not to small just right.very beautiful room. Love the cozy Lani. Very private and cozy, it's like a perfect little condo for 2. Pools are amazing. The beach, is where is at. (If you go you gotta watch the sunsets). Rooms are close to the beach, you have many pools to access. Dukes restaurant (fantastic) food staff and service. Property owners are very kind and understanding. I would love to get thos same room next year. And year after.

My parents spent 3 weeks in Maureen and Robert’s unit and had a wonderful time. The owners were so easy to communicate with and made sure all of our questions were answered. The unit had everything that my mom and dad needed and the resort was beautiful. My parents especially loved the big balcony and spent everyday looking out at the ocean. Thanks for such an amazing trip.

What a wonderful place! The whole resort was so nice. The view was gorgeous and when in the room we spent most of our time out on the lanai. The black binder had so much information and ideas for things to do and places to eat. We referred to it often. Definitely will stay here again on a return trip!

Perfect place for our first time on Maui. Our condo had everything we needed, from beach chairs to laundry soap. This host thought of everything and we ran out of nothing on our 5 night stay. Very clean and centrally located. Great communication with our host, Maureen. Mahalo!!

This beautiful studio unit was sparkling clean and had everything you need for a great stay. So nice to have great coffee for the next morning! The location is really convenient. All of the amenities of the complex are well maintained and wonderful. We had a great trip and would recommend this unit to anyone. It was perfect for 2 adults with nice sunset views every evening.

We truly enjoyed our stay at your condo. Thank you for being such attentive hosts, and thinking of so many small details that made our stay so enjoyable. The condo was extremely clean, well stocked, and in a very convenient location to everything we wanted to do in Maui. We can’t wait to visit again.. Thank you for making our Maui trip such a dream!

This property has everything you need. Resort location with tons of benefits, this studio serves as a hub for your island activities. Pools, store, restaurants all on site. Plus tons of great food options within a 5-10 minute drive. We used it as a place to rest after island adventures. Being our first time here we wanted to see it all. It was fabulous to “come home” to an oasis! Studio is perfect for two, Clean, modern and everything in perfect operating condition. Plus, chairs, towels, bags, coolers, everything you may need but don’t bring on a vacation. Only thing I would mention is you are not oceanfront, you can not hear the waves, so if that’s what you are looking for this may not be for you, however you can see the ocean through a court yard and past the pool. The owners are kind and helpful! We had a wonderful experience!!! Worth it!!!

We enjoyed our stay! It's a wonderful place for honeymoon, family vacations, ect. ocean front view, pools, hot tub, restaurant in resort, food truck walking distance, and much more. Everyone is so nice! Staff are wonderful even when they are really busy. We would absolutely love to come back.

What a wonderful host and property. When we walked in I was giddy with how lovely the unit and the view were. We hardly left the resort it was so nice. When we did leave we really appreciated all the tips for outings in the binder provided. Will definitely return.

1st: this is the cleanest place I have ever stayed! Truly felt like I could relax in a clean/ cozy environment. 2nd: the suite & property is awesome & has great views! My only negative is the lack of parking (not the owners fault though, which is why I won’t have that play a factor into the rating). With all of that being said, I would 100% stay here again!

This is the second time we have stayed in this gorgeous condo. We love it’s proximity to beautiful beaches, stunning walking trails and, of course, Duke’s. Robert and Maureen are the perfect hosts! We are looking forward to staying again!

Overall the entire property is very good. The addition of being able to have access to the well equipped full kitchen was a bonus! Maureen and Robert provided very nice beach chairs as well as boogie boards, a small cooler, and a cooler bag. Much to my surprise there were ice packs or blue ice in the freezer ready to use. This was an added bonus as we haven't had that provided before. They also had a wonderful welcome basket of coffee, local chocolate, and other items that we used! The welcome book provided was more extensive than any other I have seen, including the milkshakes at the Burger Shack at Fleming Beach - a must if you visit! Overall, you cannot go wrong staying here! We would definitely stay here again should we visit Maui in the future! Highly recommend!

315 Konea Tower lived up to all the promises and even surpassed our expectations during our stay in June 2022! Maureen and Robert have done a great job of keeping the condo updated and stocked with everything you need- from kitchen supplies, beach gear (chairs, umbrella & snorkel gear), and even a smaller cooler & ice pack. The view from the condo was great- my wife and I enjoyed our early mornings and late evenings on the lanai! Even though this is a studio it was perfect for our needs and never felt cramped during our 10-day stay. We enjoyed the various pools, gas grills, beach access, Duke's restaurant & more offered by this amazing resort. We typically try to go to new places when we get the opportunity to travel; and after 25 years of marriage there are only a couple places that make our list of places we'd definitely return to- and this one has been added to that list! If you've already decided this is the resort you want but are still debating between which unit to select- book with Maureen and Robert! The personal touch they offer is amazing- from tips ranging from where to get groceries, the best farmer's market, restaurant reservations and places to explore. Everything in the condo is neatly labeled and the communication with Maureen was great starting after our initial booking all the way through to our last day. We couldn't have asked for anything better! Mahalo!

We loved our stay at Honua Kai, and Maureen and Robert have a perfect spot. Well built place meant that you don't hear neighbors coming and going at all hours, and the morning sits on the lanai are perfect with the coffee they included for us. Some of the other guests you might run into at the resort may act entitled and snobby, but just ignore them and go spend more time with the locals who spread the aloha. Wonderful time, and a beautiful place to stay. Clean, great communication, seamless check in and out. 5/5 for sure!

Honua Kai was a delightful place to spend our 50th wedding anniversary!! The owners kept us informed throughout the process on what to expect at the resort and amenities in the room. They also provided dining suggestions, so we could make reservations prior to our arrival. It was so helpful! The condo unit was just what we needed. It was well furnished and stylishly decorated. We loved having the washer and dryer in our unit with cleaning pods provided! Our owners even extended our checkout a few hours, allowing us to enjoy our last day a few more hours! Thank you again, Robert and Maureen!! Scarlett Feldhaus Westfield, IN

This location is amazing! Close to everything, the view is breathtaking. Short walk to the beach, nice pool and close to other restaurants and bars - can certainly have the true Hawaii experience! Whether you want to relax by the beach or pool or mingle with locals/other visitors and shop - it can be done! The host is so accommodating and provides you with any and everything you could possibly need to enjoy your stay! Definitely recommend! Will return! Happy with this choice!

This studio unit is about as ideal as it gets. Perfect location, and at this time of year (Feb/March) a perfect sunset from the lanai- although we only saw it on the beach or on the water, the weather was too perfect. From our beginning conversations with Maureen months ago right up to our final day, she was so pleasant and helpful and made it impossible to find fault with how easy it was to enjoy this slice of paradise. We wanted for nothing, everything we possibly could need was there from coffee to beach chairs. It was planned right at Feb/Mar to see the peak of whale season and it did not disappoint, the ocean was like glass and not a drop of rain and 82 degrees everyday. Everyone around us was pleasant and also in need of time away and we met several really great folks at the pool and at Dukes (on several occasions...sometimes a couple of times a day)! Wonderful hosts and a really great unit, thank you for making our belated birthdays and whale appointments go so spectacular.

We had a wonderful time the only problem….it was too short. Whales breaching, turtles swimming daily right in front of the resort. Pools great and Dukes delightful. 4 mile walk daily on the boardwalk. We will be back!

First time to Maui and we nailed the perfect place to stay. The Parkers are top notch hosts and have thought of absolutely everything you might want or need. Super kind and easy to work and communicate with. Plus, Lahaina is a much quieter and less crowded place to stay as compared to the southern beaches. Highly recommend!


Christine N.

My husband and I loved our stay. We would highly recommend staying here. The accommodations were superb, and the location was great. We loved the beach front property, and it was a huge plus that the place was equipped with all of the beach equipment needed for awesome days on the beach.

Honua Kai is a beautiful resort property, and this studio unit was perfect for our visit. The unit had upgraded furnishings and all of the amenities we could want. The owners also had great communication which helped us to understand logistics and how to use all of the features on the property. Many thanks to Maureen and Robert for all of the extra touches that helped make our stay wonderful. We hope to be back!

Cleanliness - We could tell that the cleaners did a thorough job of cleaning the condo. It smelled fresh, and it was very welcoming from the first time we entered the condo. In addition, Maureen and Robert keep everything very well organized. Check-in process - Maureen provided great instructions regarding the check in process which was smooth. It is very nice that Honua Kai uses waterproof wristbands as the room key - no need to keep track of a key card at the pool or beach! Accuracy of online listing - The condo was even better than described! From the pictures to the other travelers’ reviews, we were excited that their condo was available for the week we were looking at. Communication with property manager - Maureen was always quick to respond to emails and texts. From the time we made our reservation to checking in on us during our trip to post-vacation follow-up, she was always easily accessible and very helpful. Location and neighborhood - Honua Kai’s location on Maui is excellent. We decided to spend about half of our days exploring the island and sightseeing, and we wanted to make sure we saved some time to enjoy the pools and beach at the resort as well. Honua Kai is located directly on Kaanapali Beach, and a boardwalk connects to various other resorts south of Honua Kai. A food truck park is nearby as well. There was a local pop-up market that was located on the boardwalk a couple of days during the week we were there. There are so many pool options to choose from, and it is easy to walk out to the beach to enjoy all the picturesque views as well! Maureen and Robert provided beach chairs, towels, and a big beach bag which was so helpful! Duke’s Restaurant is on the property as well - their servers go around to the pool areas during the day to take food and drink orders, and they take Apple Pay, so we didn’t even need to bring cash or our wallet to the pool. The drive from Honua Kai to other parts of the island was easy (and the views on the drive were amazing!). Valet was not available due to Covid-19, and the parking garage filled up fast, but street parking was available at the resort as well. Overall rating - Maureen and Robert have a wonderful condo with a perfect location! We went to Hawaii for the first time to celebrate our anniversary. Maureen and Robert’s condo was the perfect place to call home for the week. If you’re looking for a place to stay, look no further and book Maureen and Robert’s condo now!

This unit is perfect for a couple. It’s just the right size with a beautiful view of the gardens, pools, and the ocean. The property is amazing and well cared for. It was so nice coming back here after long days of sightseeing. You won’t want to leave.

We feel very lucky to have enjoyed another great vacation here!! Like last time, attention was paid to every detail. The condo was spotless and ready for guests. We always feel at home here. We also appreciate Maureen’s patience and support during travel and Covid. We had to cancel a year ago and rescheduled for this year. We were still hesitant to travel but she kept in touch with us and let us know the guidelines in Hawaii. We had a wonderful trip!!!

This property was exactly as described. It was clean. Well stocked. Very accurate in pictures. The location of the unit was wonderful. Close to the pool and central Whalers General store. The property manager was very very accommodating to our needs. Always responding quickly and went out of her way to help with our check in process! We will definitely be back.

Our experience in this property and with its host was perfect in every way. The condo is pristine. Seriously, it lives like a brand new place. Everything was clean and spotless and there were plenty of unexpected extras available (e.g. nice beach stuff, stocked kitchen, etc.). We loved the view and enjoyed relaxing on the lanai. The grounds themselves are also well cared for and inviting. Our hosts were conscientious and genuinely cared about our stay in their condo. Throughout their correspondence, it felt like they wanted us to have a great time as much as we did! They provided thorough instructions for everything in the condo and offered many recommendations for restaurants as well as things to see and do. They responded to all of my questions quickly. We have stayed in many vacation rentals over the years, and I would say they are the best hosts we have encountered. No complaints or concerns with our stay. We hope to return soon!

My husband and I stayed at Maureen and Robert's home and it could not have been any better. First... Location, Location, Location! The resort has everything you need to enjoy your island trip. Multiple pools with wonderful staff ready to bring you your cocktail of choice. Easy and quick access to the beach. Dukes Restaurant and Bar on the property and a great cafe. The property itself was equipped with EVERYTHING you could need! The kitchen is fully stocked with pots, pans, coffee pot, toaster, stove, microwave, full-sized fridge etc. The bathroom has two sinks, a huge tub, and a fantastic shower that had shampoo, conditioner, and body wash, and a makeup mirror. The bed was super comfy and waking up every morning to a perfect Hawaiian view was the best way to start the day. We also loved having our on their lanai overlooking the ocean. Lastly, Maureen and Robert were so great to deal with. Their quick responses to any questions and tips for activities and restaurants were spot on. We can't recommend this place enough.

First off, I cannot say enough nice things about this property. Everything is clean, inviting and just overall BEAUTIFUL. The owners of this unit are wonderful to work with and are super sweet and responsive. The unit has a beautiful view and a lovely balcony which was so nice to wake up to in the morning. The beach at this property is also absolutely stunning!! Like I said before, I can not recommend this place more!! A big thank you to Maureen (the owner) who made this booking process so seamless and easy!

We really enjoyed our stay in this unit at Honua Kai! The resort is in a great location and the unit is very nice. Lots of thoughtful extras (beach chairs, umbrella, boogie board etc.). Would definitely stay at again!

From the very beginning, Maureen and Robert have been wonderful. They were so communicative and helpful from booking all the way through the end of the stay. Honua Kai is the perfect balance of in-condo amenities like a full-kitchen without sacrificing the feel of being at a resort. The unit was clean and well-appointed, directions for care were very clear, and any questions we had were answered quickly. As far as Maui/Honua Kai- it was definitely busy and at times crowded. Not surprising as post-COVID tourism. If you’re going for a quiet , adults-only stay, this is probably not your place. But if you’re up for an adventure or have a kid or two with you, you’ll have a ton of fun here! We often used our beach chairs to lay out in the grassier areas by the pool rather than having to fight it out for a pool chair. Security never seemed to have an issue with it and it worked great! Duke’s- the on-site restaurant was probably our fave of the whole stay, and that beats out even some of Maui’s most legendary spots. Highly recommend. We hope to be back! Thanks for everything, Maureen and Robert! ❤️

The location was perfect for accessing the beach, shops, delicious food trucks and restaurants, and getting in a scenic jog or bike ride! Not only did we enjoy a beautiful view of the ocean and courtyard, the property was fully stocked with fun things to enjoy (puzzles, binoculars, inflatable tubes, flippers, snorkeling masks, beach chairs..the works)! I especially enjoyed the communication with Maureen, the owner. She was so incredibly helpful, warm and welcoming. Her level of hospitality blew me away and am totally in awe of her kindness and care for her guests. I would be back to book another stay in a heartbeat! Incredible experience across the board!

This is a wonderful unit to choose for your stay at the Honua Kai! Maureen is the best and checked in with us to make sure we were able to find everything we needed. This is the 3rd unit I have stayed in personally at the Honua Kai - and it was the absolute cleanest. Everything you need is right here. We ate breakfast on the lanai, used the barbeques often for dinners, and just enjoyed the view of the ocean. It was truly everything we hoped for and more! We loved our stay and can't wait to come back again to snorkel and just relax. This is true Paradise!

We stayed in this terrific studio condo for 10 days, Nov 25 - Dec 4. The condo is well appointed with everything you need. It is spacious for a couple, has a large bathroom and a great Lanai. The bathroom is modern, clean and spacious. Parking is very close and the small but well equipped gym is perfect for a morning workout. The complex is quiet in the evenings. The Times grocery store is right across the main road and the Fish Market is just down the road and has Terrific baha tacos and cooked jumbo shrimp or fresh fish, shrimp to BBQ! The beach right out front is narrow but there is lots of great beach just a few steps down. The boardwalk is wonderful for a morning walk or jog and Black Rock is not too far, including great shopping at Whalers Village. Overall this condo suited us perfectly and we would highly recommend for a couple who appreciate comfort and convenience in a quality setting! There are lots of instructions left for visitors and recommendations too. Clearly the owners take great pride in their condo! Hope to be fortunate enough to return someday! Maholo!

What an amazing rental unit! We have been planning this trip for a long time and it finally came to fruition. I looked all over Maui to find the right place and finally picked Konea! The owners were very helpful and the unit is immaculate. The amenities on property were perfect and we took advantage of most of them. There were 3 of us in our party, 2 adults and a teenager. We had plenty of room for us all. We enjoyed our stay so much that we can't wait to go back in 2018!

The condo is everything that you would expect and then some! The amenities and activities on the resort are worthy enough of a 5 day stay if you don't have activities planned out on the island but if you do, the location of the home is a relaxing drive down the coastline to wherever you need to go. The condo is equipped with everything that you will need and the concierge staff that Robert and Maureen have in place will make all the arrangements that you need leaving you worry free and ready to fully digest everything that Maui has to offer. Robert and Maureen treated us like family and we will definitely visit again as well as recommend this home to all of our friends and family.

Thank you for sharing your beautiful Maui home with us. This condo is beautiful, clean, and provided many useful items for our vacation - beach towels, chairs, cooler, were much appreciated. The Guide to Maui book was our bible for the week! We had so much fun exploring every coast of Maui. The Road to Hana was simply breathtaking and should not be missed. Sitting on the balcony watching both sunrises and sunsets was wonderful. Honua Kai is well kept and has a great restaurant on the property. The only drawback was that the beach is very small, although walking down the beach walk will get you to bigger beaches. Being first time visitors to Maui we were unprepared for the amount of wind that is present here almost all day, therefore we didn't spend anytime on this beach and drove to more sheltered locations. One afternoon at the pool, but again, too windy to read or relax. We are from Chicago so we are very used to wind - chicago's wind has nothing on Maui! The only reason that we did not give this property 5 stars has nothing to do with the unit. Because of the location of this resort, being about a 40 minute walk to Whaler's village and the main hotel area of Kanaapali, we feel that some sort of shuttle or courtesy van should have been available to guests during their stay. Anytime we wanted to leave the property we had to fight for parking and often had to pay for it. This got old very quickly, especially when going out for dinner when walking wasn't an option. Transportation to/from Whaler's Village and Lahaina would have made this a much more pleasurable stay and may have helped alleviate the terrible traffic on the roads. We thought we were going during the off season, however were told by the locals that there is no longer an off season in Maui! So much to see and do, but the traffic is def. a problem. All in all a wonderful vacation despite the driving!

My partner and I just returned from spending 7 days at this property and were completely satisfied. We have typically stayed at 5 star resort properties on the island and this particular unit was by far better than any hotel we have yet to stay at. The unit itself has sliding doors which disappear for a full indoor, outdoor experience allowing the ocean breezes from the deck into the room. The kitchen was well appointed with granite counter tops, all the utensils needed for cooking and the furnishings were modern and stylish. The bed had high end linens and the bathroom features a separate shower and bath tub with dual sink and quality towels. The unit also features a washer/dryer unit and even has boogie boards and beach chairs for your pleasure. We particularly enjoyed the location of this unit in the building which is away from the noisy pool area but still offered a beautiful garden and partial ocean view. Honua Kai Resort is close to many restaurants and activities which made it easy to spend the day either shopping, zip lining or simply going to the beach. Having Duke's restaurant adjacent to the pool area made it nice for an early evening happy hour or occasional meal. The gym is very well appointed and was never crowded which made our daily workout easy and efficient. The staff at this property were particularly helpful and always in good spirit. This resort never feels overcrowded and offers easy parking underneath the hotel or outside in an adjacent lot. There is valet service at the front entrance too which made it easy for our family to load up and go on our many outings. This vacation was by far one of the most relaxing and comfortable due to this lovely property. I highly recommend a stay at Honua Kai-Konea Resort in this particular unit.

We just left Maui and we already miss it! This unit was fantastic but that isn't what makes it great! Maureen was wonderful to chat with and respond to questions. We flew in on a day when a wildfire was burning in West Maui. The concierge service that the owners work with went above and beyond. With the only road and communications cut off Candice was there to meet us 11 hours later. The friendly call from Maureen the next day to make sure we made it was even better!

My husband and I were lucky enough to stay in this amazing condo for a week to celebrate our first wedding anniversary. The location is PERFECT, and the views from the Lanai are just amazing! We loved using the kitchen (cooked over 50% of our meals during our stay), and enjoyed breakfast and dinner on the Lanai. The hospitality from Robert and Maureen was so nice, and Candice greeted us upon arrival and showed us the condo. Duke's restaurant on site is AMAZING, happy hour everyday from 3-5, the best calamari we've ever had, and really yummy food! We loved the pool, and snorkel gear & paddleboards are available on-site which was so convenient! We loved walking along Kaanapali beach from the resort, or along the pathway that goes behind the beach along all of the Kaanapali properties (however, Honua Kai was definitely the best). If you are looking for the perfect spot for 2 to enjoy a romantic time in Maui, you MUST book this condo! We can't wait to return!

The view from the balcony was gorgeous, not only could we see the whole resort, but the ocean as well. Fellow vacationers at the resort were polite and there were no rooms that were too loud, even when we were out on the balcony enjoying the view. The place itself was very clean and well kept, with the drawers clearly labeling everything that it held (which came in handy when it was time to put everything back). Duke's Restaurant was the main restaurant that we would go to. It was a short walk from the room, the happy hour was amazing, the food was great (and there was plenty of it), and there were live performances that entertained us to no end. I personally would highly recommend going on a snorkel cruise via the Hula Girl, I cannot even begin to describe all the creatures that we saw while we were out in the water. We were very grateful that we were able to stay in such a beautiful place, and cannot wait until we can visit again.
