We stayed in a 1 Bedroom condo on the second floor in Konea Tower at Honua Kai in Kaanapali Maui. Our contact person was Jill, one of the owners of the condo. I can't say enough about how smoothly everything went in planning this trip and the stay itself. As far as the condo goes the owners thought of everything you would need. The condo was very clean with high end kitchen appliances, washer and dryer, comfortable king size bed, nice size lanai that opened to full view with table and chairs. There were beach towels, beach chairs,cooler, and even sand toys for children and more. The bathroom was large with tub and separate shower. Nice flat screen TVs with Netflix and Roku. The valets were friendly and professional. The pools were spacious and clean. You can't go wrong staying here!
We loved this condo and recommend it highly. We've stayed at other resorts in Kaanapali, but this condo tops them all! When you walk in, you are presented with a tastefully decorated place. (I do a lot of design work, and this is nice.)
You will experience excellent communication from initial booking until you depart. There is no question unanswered and extremely professional in every sense of the word.
We appreciated the binder in the condo with recommendations from restaurants, activities, day trips..everything you could possibly wonder about! (We especially loved The Hula Grill restaurant (farm/sea-to-table), Leilani's, and Duke's --all owned by the same company!) We went on a day trip to Paia (cute town on the East coast of Maui...only took 50 min by car..) for lunch and browsing cute shops then enjoyed the massive stretches of beach.
We found the pools and loungers available all times of day; however, early bird finds the best spots. There are 4 pools with many areas to enjoy! Also, the beach is a bit more rocky than we anticipated, but if you walk just 100+ feet South, you'll find the perfect sandy beaches without any rocks at all.
We truly appreciated the beach chairs, beach umbrella, snorkel gear and cooler. We used them several times and saved a lot of money not having to rent. Also the washer and dryer were very handy!
I can't express how truly happy you'll be if you rent from Jill & Terry. Their attention to details and beautiful home, not to mention the gorgeous view from the balcony, are not to be missed. You will be happy if you choose their condo!
This is a beautiful well kept unit, and comes fully stocked with everything you need, including all your beach needs. A quiet location in the resort overlooking a green space and surprisingly great ocean views from the lanai. The owners Jill and Terry are very helpful every step of the way and an absolute pleasure to deal with. This place is a real gem, you will not be disappointed!!
This was our very first trip to Maui and thanks to Jill and Terry, and their clean, comfy condo, it turned to be one of the best trips for our family.
Booking was super easy just by email; I did not even need to make a phone call to Jill or Terry as they responded very quickly to me and answered all my questions, concerns in a very professional way. They provided me with all the instructions before the booking, after the reservation was made, prior to arrival and also during our stay. communication was super easy with Jill through both email and text (after our arrival there); when we arrived, we met Diana, their representative at Maui and she welcomed us, showed us the condo and provided us with the map and many more useful information that we needed once we arrived.
The condo was amazing, lanai had ocean views (although you are on 2nd floor) and it was on the quieter side of the Konea building (newer building at the Honua Kai); the condo has many beach stuff (snorkel gear, boogie board, kids beach stuff, beach shoes, at least 4 beach chairs and 3 beach umbrellas), definitely more than you will need during your stay; it also had the cooler box which was really useful for us; the kitchen has all the amenities you need to cook; they also provided us with the beach towels and there were many more towels in the bathroom.
overall, everything was perfect for the condo and we were super happy that we chose this condo and this resort for our stay.
The resort has many swimming pools that you can choose from but they are not huge; few hot tubs and many chairs on the pool side to relax and enjoy the sun. the Beach in front of the resort is rocky and we did not feel like going in, so we drove just 10 minutes and went to a nearby beach with no coral/rocks; however, it's a good spot to snorkel and if you walk across the beach you will find better spots less rocky.
The resort has a Spa, that we used once, as well as a small market but within only a 5 minute walking distance, you will find big market to do grocery for your stay.
In short, amazing trip, awesome condo, great owners to deal with. thanks again, I definitely recommend and will go back again.
We had a wonderful experience staying at this condo for a week. The owners were great to work with and the unit was very comfortable, clean, and very well stocked. The entire complex was well maintained and had a number of pools, falls, and even a water slide. The location was beachfront and we really enjoyed walking the boardwalk and on the beach to Whalers Village. We have been to Maui a number of times and would stay here again.
