“Clean and modern, comfortable stay for our family”
Reviewed April 1, 2015 for a stay in April 2014

My husband and I and our two children (ages 3 and 4) stayed in unit #106 April 27, 2014 for 5 nights. The condo was clean, modern and comfortable, and well stocked with what we needed during our stay. Our kids loved playing just outside on the patio, playing in the rocks, and running in the grass. This first floor unit is perfect if you have young kids who love open spaces to run, and what young kid doesn't? The pool was perfect for kids (and us, adults), nice temperature, great children's pool, as well as the close location of the beach. We were also able to book a babysitter through a highly rated babysitting service in the area (check yelp) and my husband and I were able to have a beautiful dinner by ourselves at Duke's--excellent food and ambiance.

This was our first time staying at the Honua Kai resort, and certainly won't be our last when we are able to make a trip back to Maui in the future.

“Perfect in every way!”

Location-perfect. Middle of complex as described. Close to beach, Duke's restaurant and groceries across the street. (We swam one evening and sat in the hot tub twice--nice, too, but, we are beach bums)

Amenities-perfect. The only thing I took for our family of 4 were dryer sheets and we did use those. Otherwise, what was provided as 'start-up' was fine. Used the kitchen for most breakfasts, a few lunches and one or two dinners. Lots of dinnerware, pots, pans, etc.

Property-perfect. Duke's restaurant has VERY GOOD food. We enjoyed one nice dinner (lobster and Opah were particularly good). We ate two lunches there and they were great, too. The fish and chips and fish sandwich (macadamia nut crusted!) were delicious. Not as pricey as we anticipated. The ales were also good and our young adult children liked the tropical drinks. The beach was not as narrow as mentioned in posts somewhere----perfect, really, as SO may people were at the pools.

Brandon/Monty-both could not have been easier to work with!!

Staff at Hanua Kai-I was a bit worried since we were not 'guests' but renting directly from owners. But, from the front desk staff, concierge and bellmen, all were great! They allowed us to keep our luggage for the last 8 hours there and we stayed at the beach.

As you can tell, this was one great vacation! Not any hiccups to speak of and that is pretty remarkable. We have been to Maui before and stayed in Kehei. I kept wondering if we could 'out-do' that trip. We did!

“Fabulous Condo in perfect location at the beautiful Honua Kai resort”
Reviewed December 4, 2014 for a stay in January 2014

Our family of four enjoyed 10 days at this amazing condo. This was our second time at Honua Kai and this spacious 2 bed, 1 bath unit was awesome. The ground floor location just a short walk to the pools was perfect (we could honestly run our 3 year old back to the condo to use the bathroom just as quick as using the public toilets at the pool)! Everything was exactly as described, very clean, great customer service from both the owner Brandon and Monty onsite. Loved the lockable lanai door (something most other units don't have). Unit was well stocked with a playpen for our 1 year old, portable high chair, lots and lots of beach toys, towels, umbrella and more. The kitchen is great and had everything we needed to cook. Be sure to enjoy pool service for drinks and appies and take out food and dinner's at Duke's restaurant on site. Hula pie is amazing. Also be sure to enjoy coffee and treats (cinnamon donuts and smoothies) from Aina's market onsite. Pools and beach are excellent and we saw sea turtles surfing in the waves right on our beach every day. Lots of whales again easily spotted from the beach. Love how this unit has a bit of grass for the kids to play and is really private with a big grass area separating it from the other Honua Kai building. Our kids found it super neat that there were lots of geckos in the rocks right outside the condo and we saw a big toad and a tree frog on our lanai. We would highly recommend this condo and hope to be back next year (but this time for longer) :)

“Great location”
Reviewed October 30, 2014 for a stay in January 2014

We have stayed at Honua Kai previously and knew what a wonderful resort it was. This time we booked through VRBO as we really wanted a ground floor unit again. We had a wonderful stay this time as well. It was really nice to have the extra bedroom/den for our children. The location is ideal....very short walk to pools and beach and really nice to leave from our lanai door (which we were able to lock....we never had to walk through the hotel or deal with elevators, etc which was great!). The unit was nice, clean and actually more spacious than we thought it was going to be. We had all the amenities we could have needed. I was worried initially that we would have to buy dish soap or laundry soap but we had plenty. It was also nice that we even had some Aveda travels sizes in the bathroom which was unexpected. Our kids loved seeing the lizards on the lanai and we even saw a toad one evening which they thought was pretty cool. Brandon was very easy to deal with. He responded quickly to emails and was very helpful. We would definitely stay here again.

“Love this ground floor unit!”
Reviewed October 7, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

My family stayed in this unit and just loved being on the ground floor. The unit had everything we needed and the manager was friendly and very helpful during our check in. Having a ground floor unit is perfect for easy access to the pools and beach! We would definitely stay here again!

“wonderful!”
Reviewed September 21, 2014 for a stay in March 2013

Absolutely wonderful! The condo was beautiful, everything sparkled! The space was fantastic. It has high ceilings, lovely decor, and the extra den space made it feel quite expansive. Nice kitchen, huge, beautiful bathroom, spacious living room. The ground floor lanai that opened to the greenspace was invaluable with our young children. They could just run outside and play on the lawn, almost like our backyard at home! We could leave the condo through the lanai doors to get to the beach and the pools and never go through the rest of the building unless we wanted to. We stayed for a week and it felt like home. I am writing this review from another room at the same resort for the last two days of our stay due to availablity. It is very nice, but not quite as fresh this one. We miss the space and ground floor location. We will be back hopefully for a longer stay in this wonderfully maintained, lovely condo. The resort in general is a luxurious complex on a great beach and close to many other great spots. The busier Kaanapalli strip is minutes away by car and a healthy walking distance along a beautiful boardwalk. There is great snorkeling at Napili Bay and Kapalua Bay which are only a short distance away, as are the shopping and dining areas in Lahina. Our kids loved the different pools and the beach just in front of the resort. Exercisers will enjoy the gym or running on the beach or boardwalk. This is our third trip to Maui and we cannot recommend this place enough. Brandon was very easy to work with, as was Monty his property manager. We can't wait to come back!

“The very best place to stay for the money”
Reviewed September 21, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Unit is fabulous with high ceilings which make it feel larger than the actual square footage. First floor a must with small children. Owner cares and prepared an extensive guide to the unit, features and the island. Second time at this complex with great pools, convenience to fun and food. This is a MUST stay unit in a top notch complex. Going back for sure!!Whole experience was great from ease of check in and relatively new high class unit and complex.
