We stayed in unit 210 and felt so relaxed and at-home that we didn’t want to leave! The condo is clean, spacious and nicely decorated and portions have been recently renovated. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything needed to make a beautiful meal. The unit also includes beach chairs which was a nice touch. The property is immaculate and everyone is very friendly. We enjoyed using the community bbq area and pool, which must be heated since the water was always the perfect temperature. Snorkeling in the cove is fantastic - lots of giant sea turtles! This complex is a 5-minute walk from Napili Beach and some great restaurants. Don’t hesitate to book your stay here! You’ll love it!
This was our second visit to Honokeana Cove, and it was a sad disappointment. 218, though with a fantastic view over the water, seemingly has been ignored by its owners since the 90s. As our family owns some vacation rental properties, we pride ourselves on updating and providing a guestbook to get feedback from our guests. That’s missing here. In this unit, the appliances are old, everything is mismatched, missing or just ancient (when a serrated edge knife is dull, you know it’s old), and every expense has been spared in bedding, lighting (no over head lights in any bedroom), general maintenance, and not even an alarm clock in any room. The living room furniture is actually outdoor patio furniture. The flat screen is new, but I’d estimate it’s the size of a cookie sheet (it’s not what we’re here for, but rain happens). At night, when you can see into other units with beautiful appliances, TVs, lighting, woodwork, etc., you can tell other owners actually use their unit. The ant infestation was not pleasant when we came in, but we saw that they had ant traps out and it improved. It was more disturbing that we were interrupted during our stay by maintenance to come in and put in batteries into the two fire alarms – except for one fire alarm was just completely missing. The cove itself seems to be affected by more runoff than I remember. If you’re an experienced snorkeler (consider the water clarity changes from fresh to salt and vice versa), you can see the influx of fresh water coming off the north side of the cove. The turtles are still present and wonderful! But the coral is showing significant damage and decay compared to our visit five years ago. Finally, one of the most charming things we liked about these condos in the past was the peace and quiet. There is no need for air conditioning because of the wonderful airflow. But rowdy groups with bad, loud music aren’t fun and management takes off at night. This is truly a place for young families and older folks. This is not for the party crowd. The road outside has only become more dangerous with traffic – it is really not a walkable place. I wish the cove was as pristine as we remember in 2016, and I wish every unit had the same kind of love. Be careful when renting here. There are other condos for comparable prices, and as the cove was the main draw, and the lovely view, I’ll keep it a three dot, but we wouldn’t return or recommend it.…
Our unit 104 needed some updating and the view was just ok but unit 101(my sisters) was amazing. For the money , a nice spot. It was a nice location, close to many things of interest. Wish there were safer places to walk
This was our second visit to Honokeana Cove and we already want to come back. We stayed in Condo 115 which met all our needs. Not knowing it was Spring Break it was a little noisier than our last visit in Dec 2017 but we were there for a special birthday and anniversary so the date couldn't be changed! Su was great helping us prior to booking and always on hand if we needed her during our stay. Staying for 10 nights we got to know a few other residents all of whom were on repeat visits to the Cove which speaks for itself in how relaxing and lovely it is. The view, the turtles and the whales truly make this such a special place and we would not consider staying anywhere else on Maui.
A small complex with a friendly "old Hawaii" feel. The development sits perfectly on a gorgeous natural cove with the island of Molokai framed perfectly in the center. The Cove is amazing for snorkeling. The Turtles and tropical fish are abundant. Napili Beach is around the corner ans well as several restaurants. The Tiki torches lit at night and the BBQ's at the waters edge complete that tropical dream-We will be back!
