My wife and I have stayed at Honokeana Cove several times and love the location. That said the last trip there in Feb 2014 was not good. We rented unit #112 directly from the owner. The unit is sub-standard and the owner has not returned our $300 deposit. He has not responded to emails and will not answer his phone. The one time I did talk to him he said he would put the check in the mail but I'm still waiting. Our other trips there were great but I would definately avoid renting this unit.

Room Tip: All are nice except unit #112.

A good friend recommended Honokeana Cove to us. What a great place!!! The property is not huge, located right on the water and superbly maintained. Many of the other guests we met have been coming there for many years and it is not a surprise why. You'll find the peace and harmony that is not attainable in a large resort. Hopefully we will become another one of the
"regular" guests.

We have been staying at Honokeana Cove for 6 to 7 years and as we found out we are considered short-timers. The views are spectacular - vivid sunsets and the sea turtles taking their last breaths before wedging themselves under the rocks 15 to 20 feet below the surface of the cove for the night. All the staff is are very friendly and very helpful. When my wife needed a chair for her plein air painting workshop Greg, the on site facility manager, pulled one from his porch so she could sit while painting at various site around the island. We really enjoy the fully equipped kitchens and cook most of our meals there.The grounds are very well maintained and there are three gas BBQs that can be used to grille your fish or steaks. We recommend two restaurants on Maui - Star Noodle and Migrant. We already have booked for next year in what is becoming an annual event for us. Highly recommended.

After trying various places on all of the islands, we found this gem over 15 years ago and have come back every year since. We are now up to a five week stay! Try walking the paved cart paths on the abandoned golf course above Kapalua, where you can feel the real beauty and tranquility of Hawaii among the trees and vegitation that has grown over the old fairways, greens and tees, observe birdlife and see spectacular ocean views. This is a small, very friendly, quiet place tucked away by itself right on its own ocean cove that has no equal in Hawaii.

Room Tip: All of the units are individually owned under central management, and are kept in excellent conditio...

We have been staying there since 1970's. Spectacular views of Molokai and Sunsets. Location allows easy access to the cove and best snorkeling on Maui!! A friendly place where staff and guests really get to know each other. Gorgeous Gardens!!

Su Campos, rental manager and Greg Stancil, facility manager, do an outstanding job and provide the spark that makes everything work so beautifully.

Our stay at Honokeana Cove was wonderful. The rooms are spotlessly clean, the grounds meticulously kept, and Su and staff are the ultimate hosts. We woke before sunrise each day to the sounds of tropical birds and ocean surf. Whether you lounge by the pool, snorkel, surf, read, play cards on your lanai, watch the turtles in the cove, watch the whales or just stare at the waters and Molokai, you can find peace at Honokeana. Even watching the rain (and we had some good rains) has a certain tranquility here. When peace and quiet is too much and you need to get out and stretch your legs, you can enjoy walks with breath-taking views or hop in your car and visit the fantastic Maui Ocean Center, museums, cultural centers, botanical gardens, shops, restaurants, and enjoy the natural beauty of Maui. Go to a luau if you can and experience the taste of authentic Hawaiian food, dance and music. We also enjoyed the opportunity to cook at home and "eat in" enjoying a view that no restaurant can match. The only downside keeping this from being a five-star rating was the early traffic noise on the street side of the condo, but fortunately that dies down at night. And be sure to go to a pupu party and get to know your cove neighbors, even if you are only there a short time!

Honokeana Cove has it all. Water side BBQ ,the best snorkeling on Maui ,delightful residents ,and reasonable prices. Su Campo , the long time manager makes you feel welcome. I prefer the second story units for the privacy and view.
