“We highly recommend this condo, this resort and these owners!”

Overall
Simply put – this condo is the reason you book on VRBO.com. We highly recommend this condo, this resort and these owners.

Owners
Jill and Terry were the most attentive and helpful owners throughout the entire process, starting with answering our questions before we booked including checking in about our comfort throughout our stay. They are realtors, which led us to believe that they would invest their time and money into a place that they loved and included all aspects of a vacation home they were looking for, and we were right. Their attention to detail and quick response time during our due diligence was amazing. These factors put you at ease immediately and when you arrive, they have a binder full of key information for anything that you can possibly think of. It’s this type of effort from an owner that enables guests to have such a carefree stay. We can’t speak highly enough about working with Jill and Terry.

Condo
Unit 248 was clean, included top of the line appliances (fridge, dishwasher, washer/dryer) and had a beautiful separate bathtub and shower. Everything you would need or could imagine was already in the condo, from cookware, grill accessories, spices, snorkel gear, boogie board, cooler, and beach towels & toys. We didn’t bring our children, but noticed there was a port-a-crib and space saver highchair. They even provided Roku and Netflix. You literally only had to bring your clothes. By far, the most amazing feature of the entire unit is the lanai which opened entirely to make the outside part of the living room. We had a view of the beach and sunset, and spent every morning relaxing with breakfast in the comfort of the patio furniture.

Resort (Honua Kai)
Great resort, excellent outdoor restaurant onsite (Duke’s). Three (3) primary pools near the Konea Tower that never seemed to fill up. The resort & grounds are clean, well maintained and above all, quiet, calm and peaceful compared to the much louder and crowded resorts south of Black Rock. There is a beach walkaway starting at this resort which stretches all of Ka’anapali Beach. The resort has Viking grills for use as well. Daily garage parking is also offered by the hotel and we would highly recommend it. Skip taking the elevator and take the stairs as the unit is so close to direct access to not only the parking garage but the grills and pools. You can also catch the bus from the Hokulani Tower into Lahaina.

Location
As stated before, we loved the location of this resort (north of the crowded, busier Kaanpali resorts) but even more due to its location near stores outside the resort. Within a 5 – 10 minute walk was a supermarket as well as a great place called the Fish Market, where you could order in or for takeout but you could also buy raw fish there to cook at the condo, which we did several times. Having such great “off resort” places within walking distance to the condo was perfect.

Jill was so responsive! I emailed several owners via condo rental sites and Jill was the first to respond, and her communication stayed great throughout the entire time we stayed at her condo. Condo was immaculate-I didn't even feel the need to wipe everything down with antibacterial wipes like I normally do when we rent places:) Would definitely rent from Jill and Terry again!

“Paradise Perfection”
Reviewed 6 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

This condo and location was fabulous. The entire site with pools, landscaping, the amazing beach, the Boardwalk & Beach walk to Whaler's Village, Duke's Restaurant, Aina Market for amazing lattes, EVERYTHING was perfect. The condo suited all our needs and we could not have asked for anything more.

“Honau Kai Vacation in Paradise”

We could have not had a better experience. The owners, Jill and Terry responded quickly with from our first inquiry through the day we had to leave their beautiful property. We could not think of another thing they could have added to the property to make it any better. The fully stocked kitchen, living room,dining room, walkout to the lanai had such spacious feel. The bedroom was so comfortable. The bathroom was roomy and clean. The entire property was tastefully decorated.
The Honua Kai resort had everything we could want. We were able to grill a couple of nights, all the utensils and seasoning were there along with a highchair for our grandson. In the evening after our grandson went to bed in the pack and play available in the unit, we would open the lanai doorway and enjoy playing cards.
All beach supplies were available. Beach towels, beach chairs, umbrella, snorkeling equipment, beach toys and a childs life jacket if you needed it.
There was a full laundry room.
Jill and Terry made it easy to check in. Full directions to contact our greeter who met us at the resort. The information book was very helpful.
There was convenient grocery and souvenir shopping across the street.
We highly recommend this rental unit.

“Excellent Rental at Honua Kai”
Reviewed 25 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Our rental experience couldn't have been better. From the time we first inquired about the property to the day we left, Terry and Jill (the property owners) were in constant contact with us and answered every single question we had, right down to the most mundane details. Having hosts who are so involved in managing their property made the experience so much more pleasant than other VRBO experiences we've had.

We received detailed instruction prior to arrival so that we know exactly what to do when we got off the plane in Maui. That really streamlined the process and made check-in super easy. The Honua Kai property itself is pretty spectacular, and this particular unit is no exception. It is spacious with a full kitchen, a large master bedroom and bath and an exceptional balcony overlooking the ocean. It's a bit hard to describe, but the door and windows to the balcony actually had the ability to fold away so that you could turn the entire unit into an open air room.

Terry and Jill are very thorough in maintaining the unit. We were pleased to find a binder on the coffee table chock full of information from the various features in the unit, to recommended local restaurants, to fun activities to do in Maui. We ended up referencing this binder on more than a few occasions.

After checking out of the Honua Kai we spent three days at the Four Seasons and both my wife and I ended up agreeing that we preferred our stay at Terry and Jill's place at the Honua Kai. Better accommodations, more accessible environment, more interesting part of Maui.

We plan on returning to Maui and when we do we will definitely try to rent this property again.
