We loved the place, it is a little older but had everything we needed. The area if beautiful and the neighbors friendly. It was easy to get to places to eat and things to do. Loved having coffee in the morning beside the cove and watching the turtles.

We are in love with Honokeana Cove and the condo. It was the perfect, quiet place to relax and enjoy time together with access to so many beautiful beaches, restaurants, and more. This is not a place to be rowdy and loud. It's serene and peaceful. Our children (6,9,11 & almost 13) truly enjoyed the experience and peace too. It truly felt like home away from home. The condo is adorably decorated, and comfortable. We can't wait to go back and stay here again in the future.

The location of this condo is very specially located right on a quiet cove that hosts beautiful fish and lots of turtles who come rest up on the rocks! Easy snorkeling for me, a beginner! Get cold? Hop in the warm pool! Or lay on the many lounges on the grass. Just a beautiful place, with lots of friendly and loyal guests who return every year. Watched the whale action from the balcony, too! Beds were comfortable. Outfitted with kitchen and snorkeling gear!

The furniture is not as comfortable or "homie" feeling as other units. That's my only complaint.

We really enjoyed our stay at Honokeana Cove! I was worried about not having A/C but that wasn’t a problem at all for us. We did come in March, so coming in summer might be a different story, but we weren’t too hot at all. The view from the lanai is simply stunning. The grounds here are beautiful and everything is so peaceful and quiet. We found that the snorkeling in the cove was the best out of the 8 different spots we went to on the island. We swam with 10 different turtles one day! (Giving them their space of course). We found the bed comfortable, and liked how large the shower was. The only complaint is that the bathroom door sticks and is quite hard to slide to open and close it. The check in process is easy and I loved having a code instead of keeping track of a key.

The condo is beautifully decorated, maintained properly, and well appointed. The grounds are well maintained. There are good restaurants near by. The cove is better for snorkeling than advertised. The cove was regularly better than snorkeling reports for local beaches. My expectations were exceeded. Eric S.

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was somewhat dirty. I was more than happy with the location. I was satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: #120 has a fabulous view but needs some major cleaning and upgrades. The carpet on the stairs needs a good cleaning if not replaced. Bedrooms and bathrooms could use a fresh coat of paint. Upstairs (living space) has a scratchy area rug that sheds terribly but the upper level was great for our family get together which meant we had 5 total units. Most of our time was spent poolside which was beautiful. Ray and his worker are hard workers and keep the outside top notch. Bree and Chari are very friendly and go over and upper to make sure your stay is smooth. We can’t wait to return next year.

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We have rented at the Cove several times over the years and always come back. It gives us the low-key, oceanfront experience we love. Access to the cove for snorkeling is one of the main attractions for us, as well as the magnificent views of the surf crashing beyond the cove and the whales enjoying their winter retreat. This time, we had Unit 213. It has a fabulous view. Downstairs bedroom has twin beds (a bit small for adults) and the upstairs has a queen. A comfy couch gives nice seating for four or five. The dressers could use replacing, but overall, the unit is in good shape. The bathrooms with large walk-in showers appear to be a recent addition—much appreciated.

This is a very pleasant small condominium community in a beautiful area. There is a wonderful snorkeling area in the cove and a nice sandy beach within a short walking distance. The condo is comfortable and well appointed. Our only problem was that the number of beds was misstated in the VRBO listing. The manager was very accommodating and was able to provide us with an inflatable bed. The manager was very easy to work with.

Especially if you like snorkeling, and especially, especially if you want pretty much guaranteed sea turtles to see! 🤿 Our place was clean and comfortable.The bed was comfortable. The upstairs water shower pressure is not great. The downstairs one was very powerful.My wife did not like the parking lot. And we wondered if assigned parking spaces would be better ? The pool is nice and warm! There is no hot tub. Not critical, but it would be nice.The view of Molokai is fantastic.There is no air conditioning (which didn’t bother us but it was about 75° each day).

If your vacation vibe is less resort and more feel like a local this is your place. The courtyard and pool are ocean front as is the view from your condo. Turtles, whales, and great snorkeling at your doorstep. Restaurants and grocery store within a 5 minute drive. We will definitely be returning. Best for groups who are comfortable sharing an intimate space together.

If you want a beautiful setting, stunning views, friendly people and to see the sea turtles and whales from your chair this is the place. Only 38 units. This is not a busy resort with all the amenities, it is quiet and beauty is the main amenity. The guest actually become friends. Since we found it we have not stayed any place else. We are already planning our next stay.

Loved our stay at this unit. Incredible ocean views from Lanai (better than I expected based on the photos). We were a group of six and had plenty of space. 15-minute walk to Napili beach, one of our favourite beaches on the island. Every day we saw lots of turtles swimming in the cove or sunning on the shore. The unit also stayed a nice comfortable temperature for our entire stay. Property managers were always friendly and responsive. We would love to return to this unit in future.

It's literally just steps down to the cove for some of the best snorkeling we've ever done. There are so many turtles! Check in and check out are easy and the property is immaculately maintained and quiet. To be clear these are condos and not a hotel, so it doesn't have a lot of the amenities that the big places have (which is how we prefer it). I recommend this to everyone looking for a quieter experience where every lanai faces the ocean.

So relaxing, well equipped kitchen needs and seasonings (last year's unit didn't have so much as a salt shaker), close to groceries and great restaurants. And the turtles! so fun to snorkel with and watch them sun themselves on the rocks just below us. 118 is the best unit for the view. Love the pool, too. We had a smoke alarm battery go dead and it took a few days to get a replacement, and we waited a day to get one of the screens hung back up after the wind blew it off the window. Minor things so don't let this stop you from booking now!
