We had a wonderful stay. Some of the best sunset views we had in all of our time in Hawaii.
My husband and I decided to island hop from Oahu to Maui. I found this gem on the beach and I had to book it right away. It was perfect! The property is literally feet from the ocean with it's own beach!! It was absolutely perfect. The condo is not only super close to the beach but also walking distance to stores and other restaurants.
The owners were easily accessible via phone and text which made check in and check out process easy breazy! I would definitely book this condo again!
Visited this gem and I wish we could have stayed longer. We left our resort in Kaanapali and made a stop here for our last night in Maui. It was perfect for our little family of four. The place had all the necessary amenities and then some. Jason and Lilly were gracious hosts and communication was excellent (so important especially when traveling). The place was clean and comfortable, and the private beach is just about 20 yards from the back patio. Great place to watch the sunset, and I can l imagine how amazing it would be during whale season.
Mahalo, Jason and Lilly. Until next time.
The view is amazing. No a/c but the ocean breeze made it manageable with fans. Communication with the host was awesome. They accomodated our specific needs. Kitchen has recently been remodeled and is beautiful.
The place is perfect. One of the best vrbo type places I’ve stayed in Hawaii. I’ve never had such an amazing view/been able to walk out to a great little beach for such a great price. Thank you!
We have stayed on this property before but first time in this condo and it did not disappoint. I really do feel like this is a small piece of heaven. The property only has 12 condos and you have a private sandy beach. We loved that it’s on the bottom floor which made it easy just to walk to and from the beach. The condo itself was great. There is no AC but the evenings cool down and when you open the windows it’s quite comfortable and a chance to hear the waves crashing. The kitchen is fully stocked with coffee maker, nice blender, toaster, etc. we cooked quite a bit and felt I had everything needed to cook, everything seems to be well thought out! Provided plenty of towels, snorkel gear, beach chairs, umbrella, and cooler. 10/10 we will be looking to stay here again on our next Maui trip. Thank you Jason.
Very clean, comfortable stay! My only regret is that we weren't able to stay longer.
Had a phenomenal experience stying at the Pikake property. The owner was awesome to work with and very communicative. The unit was close to great restaurants, beaches, coffee place, etc. It is literally steps to your own private beach. We saw turtles multiple days right at the property and beach area. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.
Very clean and nicely maintained property. We enjoyed everything during our stay.
This beach front unit is a peaceful place with a great ocean view, an ideal location for a relaxing holiday.
Jason’s communication is great with a timely response to our needs.
We enjoyed our stay, and book the unit again when we visit Maui in future.
We enjoyed our stay. Waking up to the sound of waves, beautiful scenery (and turtles) during the day, amazing sunsets every night. Can’t wait for our next visit
The property feels so private and secluded but is an easy drive to downtown Hilo. We loved the night sounds and daytime views. The hosts were friendly and informative. We very much enjoyed our stay.
If you want something on the beach then this is for you. Great location to everything on the west side. Clean and neat low key property.
Excellent condo right in the middle of everything, but still quiet and relaxing!
A little slice of heaven
1. Cleanliness - It was obvious that surfaces in the kitchen and bathroom were not thoroughly cleaned. We usually bring wipes with us to disinfect food prep surfaces and were surprised. We found some kitchen supplies (can opener, utensils etc) with food still caked on and most supplies just felt “sticky”. There were also visible stains on walls, door frames and toilet, and visible layer of dust on all glass window shutters. It seemed like a cleaner was there for 5 minutes just to change out linens and made everything look presentable but didn’t do any cleaning.
2. Beach equipments - the beach chairs were great to have, but the umbrella and masks was broken. We ended up getting our own umbrella and masks and left them with the unit since we couldn’t pack them. It would’ve been great if we didn’t have to find out they were broken after going through searching for parking and setting up at the beach.
3. Noise - this is a ground floor unit and the bedroom is located in the front of the property facing the parking lot. Noise was definitely a problem. There were thoughtful neighbors that we clearly felt they were trying to be mindful, but there were neighbors that thought it’s ok to let their kids run around by themselves outside our bedroom, and up and down the stairs, which shares a wall with the bedroom, at 5am (they were jet-lagged). Some neighbors just simply didn’t know we were right there and would have their private phone conversations that we clearly didn’t want to listen to at 11pm.
1. Great location - short walk or drive to nearby beaches, restaurants, park and downtown Lahaina.
2. The beach is in your backyard - it was really nice to be this close for a quick dip in the ocean, especially with kids. We were able to get in and out of the water multiple times throughout the day without leaving our “home”.
3. Check-in was super easy - Host provided clear instructions on check-in and gave recommendations on restaurants and things to do etc. I did speak with the host about our concern on cleanliness and he responded promptly and mentioned he will be making some changes after we leave. The overall experience with the host was good and he was open to feedback.
It was hard to leave the island. Great spot for the turtles and we want to book again.
This place was perfect! Location was wonderful! Walked to badass coffee and fruit market everyday. Love using the snorkel sets and was able to even see a see turtle. Place was stocked with everything you could ever need! We were worried about the no AC but the owner has fans and shades that really cooled off the place. Will Definitely be back !!
Just like in pictures show place is very clean, kitchen is well stocked, location is close to grocery store. Beach is steps away from patio, view is exceptional. My kids enjoyed beach a lot, a large turtle swam by him once. My original reservation needed change, Jason & Lilly were easy to work with. I will definitely recommend this place to my friends.
No need to go any beach if you are staying at this place. Beach in front of your house.
Place was very well stock everything you would need every day .great location beach in back yard .shops close.
Wow! What a beautiful location! The Pikake is unbelievable. The view from the backyard is so breathtaking. The constant sound of waves is calming. No problem sleeping in Jason and Lilly's condo. The breeze coming thru is so cool at night. Such great memories!
Steps from the water 😊 so beautiful. Short walk to great food places and coffee👍
We will be back!
The ocean is 15 feet from the back door - perfect! Slaughterhouse Beach is our favorite m, and is a tiny drive to the north - snorkeling, turtles, perfect. Groceries are close, Bad Ass Coffee is a four minute walk… what more could a person want? We’ll definitely be back.
Great and communicative owner - exceptional! Really cute place, right on the sand - walk out the back door and enjoy the ocean. Good family snorkling - fish and turtles will be swimming with you! The one drawback was no air conditioning, so we personally would perfer winter months. But still a great little vacation spot. Your kids will ooo and ahh when they walk in and see the water right there! Thanks for an enjoyable stay!
Thank you for making our trip magical and letting us stay at your home. We hope to be back soon. Owner was so kind and accommodating. Super easy to communicate with and very responsive. Thank you!
We loved our stay here! Just steps from the ocean waves! We saw so many turtles and even a pod of dolphins! The snorkeling right out front was awesome! We will definitely be back!! Just a note: there is no a/c, as other reviews have stated, but we were comfortable with the windows open. Just wonderful!!
You can’t ask for a better experience staying in Maui. Close to everything, yet private and secluded. We won’t be staying anywhere else when we come back! Five stars all the way.
Jason & Lilly’s condo is steps from the beach so we were able to snorkel with turtles. We had front row seats to beautiful sunset & rainbows. We would certainly come back!
My friend and I really enjoyed our stay here. Jason communicated with us the whole time to make sure we were comfortable and the unit is great. Everyone in the building was friendly and they had binoculars in the apartment which was great because we could watch the wales and dolphins that swam by in the evenings and mornings. We would highly recommend staying here!
Such a great and relaxing place with an outstanding view. Perfect spot to watch the sunset every evening. Everything you need is right here. We will be back next year!
Exactly as advertised - it is a slice of heaven. Turtles and Whales are a part of the package!
Loved our stay, the property has every imaginable amenity for a family to have a memorable stay.
We were only looking for a one night stay and there was one night available at the Pikake. Can't tell you what a relief it was to arrive and be completely amazed by this place. It is literally steps to the ocean. the place is clean, stylish, and comfortable. Bonus, it came with beach chairs, snorkel gear, beach towels and boogie boards! Jason was very communicative and made it so easy for us. We thoroughly enjoyed our one night and early morning stay. The last hour before leaving a whale breached right in front of us while we were eating breakfast on the patio. What an absolute treat to stay here!
This was the best decision we’ve made by choosing to stay at this place! The view was the best! The ocean in your back yard with views of whales and turtles, cohkdnt ask for more. The room was very clean and had everything we needed. Thank you so much
What a beautiful spot! The accommodations provided all essentials plus some! The binoculars, snorkel gear and boogie boards were a great bonus. I loved being separated from the hustle and bustle of the tourists in other resorts and Lahaina but close enough to visit. And nothing beats your own beach with whales popping up to greet you and turtles swimming around in the AM. Sunsets were a beautiful way to wrap up a peaceful stay.
We had a wonderful week! We’ve been to Maui 8-9 times and this is our new favorite place to stay in Maui! Mahalo to Jason and Lilly for sharing such a lovely place with us!
We made the mistake of booking a resort then extending our stay here, after staying i wish I had stayed here the whole time.
House was clean and the gives you a sense of relaxation and you don’t even want to go out of this place. My 4yo found a little pool that the rocks made and protected him from the waves, I can’t wait to go back. Thank you so much for opening this house to us.
We loved staying here! Such a great location and easy check in! Can’t wait to book our next trip!

This is an amazing place to stay on Maui. Affordable, convenient, and oh! the views.. Jason's property had everything we needed, and a comfy bed to boot! It's within walking distance to anything and everything, including access to the beach walk, near the resorts, just down the road. We've already booked our next stay! Jason is a very attentive host. Highly recommend.
The view was amazing—we saw sooooo many whales from the patio & sea turtles too! We absolutely LOVED staying at Honokowai & highly recommend it!!!! The hosts were excellent communicators, the condo was welcoming & king bed super comfy! We didn’t want to leave…hopefully, we’ll be back in the near future! Thanks, Jason!!
Best location on the beach
We had the perfect stay here. Great location and liked that it was a small 12 unit building. Neighbors were friendly and social as well. Can’t beat being directly on the water and there was snorkel gear and beach chairs ready for our use. Loved it!
Thank you again for providing such a beautiful location and clean unit. We look forward to returning again soon. 👍👍👍👍👍
Lots of sea turtles hang out at this wonderful beach. Owners were very responsive and friendly. The condo was clean and well-stocked. Love this place.
Perfect ocean getaway with gorgeous views and relaxing atmosphere. Close to many attractions and food options.
Would highly recommend.
We really wanted somewhere that felt like home and not a generic condo. This fit the bill. There were groceries, a couple of convenience stores and food trucks in walking distance. The building attracts people who want to enjoy the sunset and not party which was great for enjoying the sunsets! But the best part was having the lanai right next to the water. It was like having a private beach. We left the windows open so we could hear the waves all night. Just heaven.
In awe as we first stepped into the property. That view and the distance to the beach is unbeatable!!! Location is perfect. Really appreciated the free parking, laundry facility and the ice chest to pack sandwiches and drinks for those long days out exploring the island.
Simply awesome... right font of the (small) beach. Very hard to find such a place. Clean, tidy and easily accessible. Plenty of restaurants nearby.
Loved the on the beach location. Entry to ocean is between rock outcrops so not ideal for youngsters. Air conditioning would give this location a higher rating.
Our host was friendly and accommodating
I would come back to this unit. It was so nicely decorated and clean. The kitchen and bathrooms are updated. The master bedroom was comfortable and 2 teenagers shared the couch pullout and they said that it was ok for a sofa bed. Jason is very responsive to text and communication was easy. We were provided everything we needed to enjoy the beach and a very comfortable stay.
we enjoyed our stay
Jason and Lilly are great hosts, very good with communication. The accommodation is unbelievable. Everything you need is included, the setting is perfect for sunsets. Beach is awesome, and ours came complete with fish and turtles. Snorkeling was very good here. Just a great place for a vacation.
I booked a stay for my 70 year old Aunt & Uncle and all I can say is the owner Jason & Lily were very accommodating. They made sure my family was very comfortable & safe. Stayed in communication with me to make sure I knew what was going on. The Condo was beautiful & very clean and in the perfect spot! This will always be the condo I’ll book when visiting Lahaina, Maui. Thank you again to these awesome owners!
I am so sad that i didn't book this place for longer. It is a very special place. I was very happy there.
