Beautiful condo with gorgeous views!!

Great property!

Spacious and great location. View is ok, but being so close to the beach and pool made this an incredible experience for my family and didn’t need to leave the resort.

The apartment was very well kept, the unit was very clean and tidy. The unit comes with equipment with everything you would need. The resort was beautiful and we had a great time. The view from the room was great and we loved spending time on the lanai. The towels were easy to get at the pool and the amenities were terrific. The stay was wonderful in all regards other than the three German cockroaches we encountered. The Konea building definitely has a cockroach issue and this did make me super paranoid but as I have found it is a problem generally in Maui resorts being a tropical climate. I would’ve given 5 stars if it wasn’t for the roaches, I contacted the host after seeing the first one and they sent maintenance to treat the room but days later I again saw a roach in the washroom at night. Keep your things elevated and you should be fine but for me I wouldn’t have stayed knowing this, especially for the price. I followed all the rules for cleaning up dishes and taking out the trash every night, this was a bit annoying for vacationing but still didn’t prevent the pests from coming back. Other things to note, there is exterior painting going on with mobile crane/booms which operate during daytime hours on the far side (view from balcony). The building is on the furthest end of the resort from the main entrance, the inner road is slow and has many speed bumps. There is a closer exit but entry gate was locked with a sign saying you need to enter from the main entrance.

Would highly recommend staying here and we would love to come back! The condo was perfect! Loved having the view of both the mountains and the ocean as most days we saw the sunrise or a rainbow over the mountain! The patio was our favorite and furniture was very comfortable. Our kids slept on the pull out couch and it worked out well. Perfect space for a family of 4. Loved the beach toys and amenities. Property has a great pool, waterslide, Duke’s restaurant which was our favorite of the trip, and a beautiful beach. Highly recommend!

Family of 4 stayed for 3 nights. Apartment was great everything we needed. Right in the ocean and grounds and pools are lovely. Nice boardwalk you can walk the beach stretch all the way south. We saw whales daily. Good place to venture north to do some beaches and snorkeling and close drive to Kaanapili south. Thank you.

Very good rental. Clean, very well stocked. Massive Lanai, solid view. Host communicated clearly. It's what you want from a rental, no headaches, just an easy place to relax.

Clean, exactly as billed, well stocked kitchen, perfect for our week long stay at HK. The owners were so nice and very easy to communicate with. The towel exchange program that they belong to is a major perk! Great place!

This studio was perfect for a week with my teen son. The king bed was comfy and it included a full size sleeper sofa and a nice chair to relax in. The lanai had seating for a small family and overlooked the courtyard. The kitchen and bathrooms were clean and well stocked. The hall closet had beach chairs, umbrellas a cooler and a boogie board. Having Duke’s at the pool was the icing on top—don’t skip the hula pie!

The property was beautiful, clean and convenient to attractions. Walking distance to the beach and many on site swimming pools. Unit was fully stocked for indoor and outdoor cooking. We comfortably slept 7 people with ample bathroom facilities.

This space has officially become our home away from home. We've stayed here now in this space for a 3rd time and intend to for as long as possible. My family and I have truly enjoyed Honua Kai. Fereshteh is warm and welcoming, kind, and understanding. We've asked to stay for additional nights each time we've stayed and to our luck, the property is available. We appreciate her having my family and I. We're excited to be back in the space again soon. Thank you, Fereshteh. <3

Our stay with Maui Westside was perfect. We've stayed and the Honua Kai before so we knew what the resort would be like. I really appreciated how easy all communication and expectations were with Maui Westside. We had zero issues and our vacation was incredible. We will be booking directly with them next time. Thanks for making our return to your beautiful home wonderful.

Great place! Management is quick to respond. Above average cleanliness in the unit! Beautiful view for eating on the outside deck and the furnishings and amenities were abundant and very well kept! I highly recommend-would definitely visit again. The Dukes restaurant is walking distance only minutes on property and Pizza Paradiso across the street had really good pizza and Dole Whip!

This was the perfect condo for our family over Spring Break in Maui. Bruno was outstanding with communication from the moment we booked through the moment we checked out. He provided a ton of great information about the area, restaurants, and additional details about the condo. The condo itself was amazing, and exactly as pictured. My wife and I stayed with our 2 boys (12 and 9) and the king bed in the master and the sleeper sofa were plenty of room for us all. We didn't spent a ton of time in the room (it is Hawaii, ha), but the kitchen had everything you could possibly need the couple times we did cook. Opening the doors to the lanai and having the wonderful breeze flow though the unit is fantastic. The view was also good enough to see whales directly from the lanai! The location of the condo is also absolutely perfect. Multiple pools for the kids and adults, Duke's directly on site for food and drinks, the beach wasn't crowded (even over spring break) and it has GREAT snorkeling. We also used the beach chairs provided by the condo and that was very helpful. We would definitely book this condo again and highly recommend for anyone looking for a stress-free vacation!

We enjoyed our stay. A little problem with checking bec the code didn’t work, but that was quickly fixed. Honua Kai is a very busy family resort, so can be a little crowded and a little noisy. We got bumped to another unit because locals displaced by fire were in the unit we reserved. The bottom floor unit we got was spotless and everything in pristine condition. You should know the the dryer takes a very long time, evidently bec there is not the usual dryer ventilation for the resort.

We loved our stay at Honua Kai and will definitely be back. The condo has amazing views and we loved watching the whales during our stay. We weren't able to open up the lanai doors much due to high winds during our stay, but great option to have when the weather cooperates. The condo was very comfortable and well stocked with towels, tp, trash bags, dishwasher pods, laundry pods, etc. There could be more dishes (plates, bowls, kid dishes) - we had to run the dishwasher daily and sometimes twice/day for our family of 4 if we ate all meals at home. The location is excellent and we loved having the pools and beach to go back and forth between each day. The property management company was easy to communicate with throughout our stay and I appreciated their follow up when I filled out the checkin survey that the floors of the condo were not clean when we arrived. They offered to have the cleaners come back and clean them but I was able to clean them enough with vacuum and the swiffer in the laundry closet. Overall this is an excellent condo and location and we can't wait to return some day!

The place had beautiful updates and eveything we needed. The lanai and its view became a favourite spot for us! Great amenities at the resort as well, with many pools and hot tubs to choose from, along with the beach and ocean right out front. Definitely one to return to.

Resort amenities and service with huge living spaces, inside and out. Everyone had their own space. It was clean and new. We'd stay there again and recommend it to others!
Cara W.
March 2024

Suite was clean and ready. Property manager was responsive with issues. Beds were comfy, tv and wifi worked great. Selection of board games was nice add as well. Beach chairs and boogie boards included were in good shape. Lanai had great morning sun and shade in the evening. Should note, only 6 place settings so we had to wash cutlery every day, sometimes multiple times. We did have a few a problems, AC quit working, property manager had someone out to look at it within hours. Code didn’t work in all the towel machines. Small roaches were seen in and around suite and property. Normal for Hawaii but still not welcomed. Also, only one bar of soap, would suggest owner leaves sink and shower soap bars. Few small adds from owner would make this a 5 star in line with other suites we have booked.

I’ve done a lot of home rentals over the years, and this one was the best. Amazing. Huge. Clean. Everything was top quality. The rental company is very effective and efficient. The resort was fun for the family. The only bad part was leaving. Loved this resort and villa and we will be back.

This was an amazing vacation. Everything was great. It was the trip we will always remember. The only thing I would suggest is to upgrade the mattresses. They obviously need replacing. Also the vacuum cleaner needs some maintenance, the brush doesn’t rotate. Thanks for a great stay.

The Maui Nuts, hosts for this property, are amazing. They immediately reached out once our reservation was confirmed. They provided very helpful details about arriving in Maui and check-in at the Honua Kai resort. They answered my questions and provided suggestions via texts in the weeks leading up to and during our stay. We were welcomed with a fresh flower bouquet in our condo and some delicious treats (even a few adult beverages chilling in the frig). The condo is awesome. It was very clean and full of extra amenities. The Maui Nuts provided plenty of dish soap, dishwasher and laundry soap, dryer sheets, food storage (Ziploc bags), spices, Kleenex, toilet paper, and other items we usually have to stock up on at condos. There were boogie boards, beach chairs, a portable cooler, and other beach items that made our beach time more fun. March is whale season and this condo is a PERFECT place to watch the show. The deck is very well positioned to give a wide view of the ocean. The Maui Nuts provided 3 pairs of very nice binoculars to zoom in on the whales. We spent many hours on the deck enjoying the warm breeze and the ocean view. The sun didn't hit the deck until late afternoon which made it comfortable all day. We have stayed at the Honua Kai Resort on two other occasions. It is a very nice property. However, this condo and the hospitality of the Maui Nuts made this stay so much better. We will always stay in this condo in the future. Thanks Nuts!

Wow! What an amazing place! We stayed here as a family of 5. Our 3 kids are 6-10 and we couldn't have asked for a better place. The condo was amazing and the views from the balcony of the West Maui Mountains were incredible. Having our own kitchen and washer and dryer was great since we stayed for 10 days. We came home with no laundry to do! The resort is also great for kids. Honou Kai has an infinity pool overlooking the beach, another pool with a waterfall and waterslide and a lazy river. My kids were in heaven and said it was the best trip they have every been on. The beach is beautiful as you can look out and see two other islands. There is some rock and coral around so just watch where you are stepping in the water. Evan, the property manager, was also very helpful. Nothing came up during our trip, but leading up to the trip he had great communication. We will definitely look to go back and stay here again!

This is definitely a 5* property! The condo was very clean, had all the kitchen gadgets you would ever need, beach chairs, toys, etc. The check in process was extremely easy. Just drove up to the valet and let them know we were there. We had the room key code already and it made for such as easy check in. Everything in the condo was in working order. Ease of communication and response times were exceptional. We will be booking again!

We would stay here again. We have stayed at Honua Kai 3 or 4 times. All are great experiences. We were sad to learn the market in Hokulani was closed (i think under construction) but what can you do! We love how central HK is, and this units balcony/deck was so amazing. the den was perfect for our three kids ages 8, 5, 3 (two in the bed, one in a pack and play, tucked into the closet haha!) we rented baby gear from Maui on the Fly and they were amazing too. thanks again!!

I was extremely happy with the stay. The unit itself is very nice, with excellent views of the Mountains, modern appliances, and nice appointments. The Kaanapali location is also a huge plus. The beach was a very short walk past the pool and was fantastic, with whale sightings, sea turtles, and plenty of space. The pool itself is also great, with the Duke's bar just a short walk away. Great snorkeling is a reasonable walk down the boardwalk at adjacent beach park. There were many great restaurants, grocery stores, and other options a short drive away as well. Would recommend this place for sure.

Wonderful unit - spacious and perfect for extended families or groups of families. Well-appointed, clean and absolutely stunning views of the ocean (and humpback whales as they do their migration between Jan-March). Highly recommend for a wonderful stay on Maui!
