Luxurious, waterfront condo w/ocean view, pools, hot tubs! Family friendly!

You've never had a vacation like this - with a high-end vacation condo by the ocean with shared pools and hot tubs, a fitness room, and both ocean and mountain views, you'll be in the lap of luxury.

With a host of resort amenities at your fingertips (resort fees apply*), there's plenty of fun to be had right here at the Honua Kai. The beach is directly out front, and the Kapalua Golf Course is just over six miles to the north. If you're looking for excellent hiking, check out the Waihe'e Trail. Don't worry about having trouble with stairs in this seventh-floor unit - an elevator ensures you won't have to carry your luggage up any stairs.

Vote on what to watch and have a movie night in the warmly lit living room. As the sun sets, retract the glass walls to the lanai and enjoy the fresh air while you continue your movie. Take a break to shoot pictures of the riot of colors in the evening sky. You can use the WiFi to upload your shots or to look up a recipe to make for dinner.

The kitchen is fully equipped with all the necessities, and has granite countertops and wood cabinets. Updated stainless steel appliances are a dream to work with. Start some fresh, local ingredients cooking, then relax at the breakfast bar while you wait for the pan to warm up. If you're feeling like a barbecue, there are community grills available for your use.

With two bedrooms and a queen sofabed, up to six guests can stay here. The condo is ideal for a couples' trip or a family retreat. In the master bedroom, you'll find a king bed and an en suite bathroom. Have a relaxing soak in the tub or quickly shower off the salt spray before a fancy dinner. The second bedroom has a king bed (which can be converted into two twins with advance notice) and access to its own bathroom, so there's never a long wait for the shower. A private washer and dryer is available for your convenience.

Enjoy the four pools in the Honua Kai Resort, then unwind with a long soak in the hot tub. If you're looking for something a bit more athletic, there's a fitness center, and the resort features Ho'ola Spa, one of the island's best places to get a massage and skin treatment.

Take a drive to the Ali'i Kula Lavender Farm on the slopes of Haleakala, with your sweetie, drinking in the scent of the flowers. In addition to lovely views, you'll find a gift shop where you can find the perfect gift for your loved ones back home. Be sure to explore the winery before you come back to your home by the ocean, in this condo.

Mountains and ocean from the same lanai!
Thomas H. Jan 2019
Overall nice unit, with a good view of the water. Good for two couples since both bedrooms are masters. There were a number of things we were disappointed in. By far the biggest was that no one told us there was construction going on right beneath our lanai. Had we known we would have looked for another unit. The kitchen, lacked a couple important items: there was no pitcher for drinks like ice tea or lemonade, there was no large bowl for making a salad. There were only 2 wine glasses. The unit wasn’t included in the towel exchange program. There was enough soap for maybe 2 days of showering.
John M. Nov 2018
We loved this place. Great location at an amazing resort. And Vacasa is everything we could ask for in a vacation management company. Made everything so easy. We will definitely use them again. Don’t miss out on this place!
Sarah R. Sep 2018
Great location, beautiful scenery and grounds. Would definitely recommend and stay there again in the future.
John W. Jul 2018
The condo was beautiful and well stocked. The lanai is perfect for watching the sunsets and eating take-out sushi from Miso Phat!
David N. Jun 2018
Clean, everything worked, plenty of towels, good equipment (stove, dishwasher, A/C, etc). View of ocean and mountains and pools.
Comfortable beds good linens, high end towels.
Jean L. Apr 2018
We really liked this corner unit, which feels very open and bright with windows in the main living area on (part of) 3 sides of the room. It was clean and in good condition with a nice layout. The lanai is huge and offers at least partial protection from the winds that are typical during much of the year. Views stretch from the ocean on one side to the mountains on the other. I'd give the unit 5 stars EXCEPT for the fact that it is overlooking construction that began during our stay (April 2018).

A new area of townhomes is being built behind and to the north of this corner unit, where previously there'd been a mostly empty grassy field. Clearing, tree removal, dirt moving/smoothing, etc. started the week we were there, which involved trucks and machinery that impacted our view and disturbed the peacefulness of the lanai. I would expect noise to be a major factor moving forward as the construction continues. It would have been nice to have known in advance that the construction would be starting, in case we would have selected a different unit. I would have appreciated Vacasa offering a discount for the inconvenience.

We did see a couple of bugs during our stay, but that's par for the course in Hawaii. The entire building had "pest services" scheduled on the last morning of our stay. This was somewhat disruptive, in that guests are asked to be out of units for 2 hours after spraying, which meant we could not enjoy the property our final morning there. We understand the service is needed, but again, it would have been nice to have had advance warning of the service. We were moving to another part of the island for the next several days, and we might have planned our departure date differently if we'd known about the spraying. I don't know how much advance warning is given for the pest services, but guests might want to ask Vacasa about it in case they have the schedule in advance.

Overall, we were bummed about the construction and the pest service, but we'd be willing to try Vacasa again. We appreciated that they allowed us to check in on the early side our first day, and we enjoyed the welcome gift of chocolates. We've stayed at the Honua Kai many times and will likely return again.

We love honua kai, specially for kids. The vacasa employees are very nice and responsible. The apartment is great, a huge lanai, and very comfortable.
Andrew F. Mar 2018
We had a great time in this condo. This was our 5th trip to Honua Kai and previously we were concerned about staying on the outside corner but this condo not only had great views of the resort, ocean, and mountains, the lanai was huge- we loved it. The condo was very clean and very well-stocked with beach gear. Overall a great stay!
Seiko H. Mar 2018
We stayed there for a week with 3 girls, 12,10&8yrs old.
We had a beautifully furnished room with a gorgeous view to the ocean. We could see whales blowing water from our balcony!
We all enjoyed the beach and the swimming pool and the room is even equipped with body boards and sand play toys!
We had our best family holiday ever!
Oh! Better bring your shoes for the beach! It’s quite uneven in the water and you may injure your feet. With secured feet, you can enjoy snorkeling much easier!
Minhui L. Feb 2018
This unit has a significant roach problem. We saw several roaches every day, especially in the kitchen, dining, and bathroom areas. This is unacceptable. (This problem was also noted in a review from last month so this was not the first they had heard about it. We chose not tell Vacasa about the problem until check-out because we did not want to risk them spraying pesticides around our young children.)

The unit is also starting to show its age (10 years). The carpet is looking very worn in parts, the washer and dryer has mold and rust, and one of the beds was sagging. These are to be expected for a condo of this age but the unit is definitely no longer in top quality.

There were also significant maintenance issues on the property including an out-of-order elevator when we checked-in and a very cold Hokulani pool and hot tubs for the first two days of our stay.

This is our sixth trip to Honua Kai, our fifth time renting from Kaanapali Beach Rentals (which was acquired by Vacasa a few years ago), and the second time we have stayed in this unit. In general, we don't feel like the resort and the units are aging very well.

We are still giving three stars for the things that keep us coming back to Honua Kai: Amazing pools, amazing views, and a generous amount of space for the price. However, this is the first time that made us question whether there are now better options and we will definitely spend time looking at other options for next year's trip.
Manager response:
We are sorry to see this guest had several disappointments during their visit. Although the previous guest reported the bug problem, we were not told until they departed. We had no other previous complaints. We did install roach bait, checked the unit upon guest departure, and no signs of roaches were present. We have been pro-active using natural pesticides to resolve the situation, and we have also scheduled for pest control through Honua Kai resort. Unfortunately, we have no control over the maintenance issues of the property itself and we have been assured by Honua Kai they are doing everything they can to make sure the upkeep of the resort is being done. Thanks!
Julie H. Jan 2018
View was beautiful. Close to shopping for groceries. Pools are fun and beautiful. Loved staying in the corner unit with all the open air windows. Views of the mountains and ocean were exceptional. We would stay again!!!
Kayla P. Jan 2018
Other than a minor issue with pests in the kitchen, which we are confident that the Vacasa team will correct, we loved the location and comfort of the condo we stayed in! The floor to ceiling windows were very clean and left us with an amazing view from the room. The on-site pool and restaraunt were fabulous, and we were very close to other attractions as well. The hotel provides a $3 shuttle to Lahaina harbor, which we highly recommend!
Brian G. Jan 2018
Great view, spacious, high end appliances, good location
Jonathan S. Nov 2017
We had a great time in Holulani 736. The unit was immaculately clean and well-situated. The view from the family room and the lanai was even better than it appears online. The beds were extremely comfortable and the furnishings were in great condition. Everyone at Vacasa was great and helpful and, when there was a minor mechanical issue with one of the fans, they sent over someone immediately who fixed the problem. I have no hesitation in recommending the unit or Vacasa (and I don't give out recommendations easily!).
Kathleen S. Oct 2017
Great place for family! Enjoyed by toddlers and grandparents. Safe and convenient.
Lynn F. Jul 2017
We stayed for 10 days at the resort. Very clean and close to lots of things to do. Would recommend a car. Beach within 2 minutes from condo. Beach and water very nice , snorking right out front saw lot turtles, eels lots of fish. Enjoyed our walks on the boardwalk along the beach. Can walk down to Whalers village about half an hour. Everyone very nice and helpful. Grocery store ( Times) 5 minute walk. Prices reasonable has everything you may need.
Tracy D. Apr 2017
We booked through another vendor and got to Maui and hated it. We contacted Lea at Vacasa and within hours she had us booked into Honua Kai and we were getting keys. It made our vacation to be back at Honua Kai which we love. We would use vacasa agsin for sure!
Douglas E. J. Jan 2017
We had a great time in Maui and at the Honua Kai. The unit was great and had everything that we needed. Easy access to all the properties amenities. Very convenient underground parking. The property is in need of a larger gym (or one for each tower). The gym was so crowded each day that we gave up trying to use it. Way too small for such a large resort.
Rose O. Dec 2016
We stayed on the 7 th floor facing the mountain and the ocean. North facing unit. It was great because we didn't have the noise from the pool or the smell of the common BBQ. It was very quiet despite the ongoing construction next door. The unit we stayed 736, was very nice. It did lack essentials for cooking, like bowls, serving spoons, etc, but we managed. They did have however extra paper towels, trash bags, and dishwasher soap and regular soap for the washer. I have stayed at other condos alike and it was never that well prepared.wiuld definitely recommend based on how easy it was to do the place upkeep, the location of the unit itself, and the many choices of pools for all different children ages. Hopefully the construction next door will be done soon. The valet service was excellent , huge plus! Looking forward to our next trip for sure!
Manager response:
We're sorry the kitchen wasn't equipped with bowls and serving spoons. It's important to remember that, if a unit doesn't have adequate kitchen items, please call the office and those supplies will be provided. Thank you.

We traveled to Maui to attend a wedding. For the second week we chose to again stay at the Honua Kai Resort. Since there were 5 of us we chose unit 603 as it had 3 bedrooms. We again were greeted by the Kaanapali Beach Properties staff whom walk you through the ins and outs of the unit.This place is fabulous! From the time that you enter the unit to when you leave you do not want for anything. The kitchen was fully equipped with everything you needed to put on a full dinner or a simple breakfast. The unit had recently been tastefully redecorated. I much preferred the travertine floor of this unit over the carpet in the unit we had stayed in before. We totally enjoyed the view of property and beach from the expansive balcony, Since this is a top floor unit with no overhang to protect the balcony from the elements, the rain showers were a bit of a nuisance since we did not want the patio furniture cushions getting wet (we took them inside). The description and online photos of this unit totally show you what you will be getting. Anybody that wishes to rent this unit will not be disappointed! I also have to mention the valet attendants whom were wonderful and certainly appreciated their assistance on a variety of occasions.
Karen . Mar 2016
This was the absolute perfect condo for our vacation with 5 adult children. Very comfortable, great location, clean, well stocked and all of the amenities you could ask for.
Andrew . Feb 2016
My wife and I along with our 3 adult children stayed for a week in the condo. It has plenty of room, the beds and sofas are very comfortable and the kitchen is well equipped. We had a great time swimming at the beach, snorkeling and enjoying a nice meal at Dukes. We stayed during the whale migration and saw whales everyday from the lanai. I would highly recommend staying here - we hated to leave!

Family absolutely loved the condo. Place was immaculate and the view was amazing. Had everything we wanted to have a great time. The kids loved the pool and the fast walk to the beach. Rest of the facilities were top notch, gym was a decent size.
The Monaghans . Dec 2013
Had an early Christmas celebration with the family. It was great to be able to have our own rooms and bathrooms. Your condo was very relaxing and felt like home. The views were great as well. I hope we can come back next year ~ but I think two weeks would be required! We snorkeled, swam, ate, drank and we were very merry. Thanks for sharing this great place with our family.
The Avery Family . Sep 2013
Family vacation; great place. My daughter did the research and certainly picked a winner! Everything about this place lived up to the reviews. Looking forward to a return visit. Hats off to the owners for having such a nice place and sharing it. Aloha!
The Washkowicks . Aug 2013
Thank you for the use of your beautiful home. We all had a fantastic family vacation. You have a wonderful condo, amazing view and is on a beautiful site. Thanks again, I really feel this condo helped make our vacation a true family vacation. Aloha from the Washkowicks of LaJolla, CA
The Norton Family . Jul 2013
We have had a fabulous time with our family from Gilbert, AZ. Your condo has been perfect and the views outstanding. Honua Kai Resort has been wonderful; the waterslide was a hit with our 9 & 7 yr. olds and great experience at the beach. Maui Zipline was perfect for the kids and Nana! Captain Jacks had great burgers and the Old Lahaina Luau was so much fun and well worth the cost. Gemini Sunset Cruise was the top it off for our vacation; perfect with time for sunset enjoyment. Mahalo from the Norton family. We look forward to the next time!
Mark, Molly and Family . Feb 2013
What a wonderful stay. This is a beautiful condo in a fantastic spot. We saw whales constantly and we were so excited! Incredibly comfy beds; best bath tub ever! Hana was amazing; whale watching trip the best; it's so beautiful. All our best, Mark, Molly and family.
John S. Feb 2013
The Honua Kai is the perfect location in North Kaanapali-pretty much close to everything. The 3 bedroom suite is ideal for 3 generations with privacy and comfort galore. Great pool. Great restaurant Convenient small grocery on site with a large supermarket just minutes away. Excellent Beach with fairly close access to snorkeling, whale watching and other exquisite as well as casual restaurants. Great golf nearby.
Ava . Jan 2013
Hi, my name is Ava. I'm a kid and I am going to talk about the bed. The bed is so, so, so comfy. I love it; I want it, I did this in it . . . zzzzzzzzzzzzz
Glenn . Nov 2012
Absolutely wonderful property with a great view of the resort; Definitely five star - The unit is in new condition and beautifully detailed. Glass doors in the den and master suite are screened and easily opened. The unit is equipped with Viking appliances, which are maintained in like new condition. LG TVs appeared to be new with cable programming provided. The sound system is room selectable and of good quality and sound. Wi-fi access is provided with needed security codes well posted. All furniture and bedding in the unit is in like new condition in both look and comfort. Elevators are conveniently located and quick to respond. Valet and self parking is available. Both of which are very convenient to the main entrance. Dukes restaurant, located on the resort property, is excellent and can handle both small and large groups.

We stayed in this Unit with kids and grandparents. Everyone loved it and had something to do and the resort. Stayed for a week but wished we could have stayed longer. The kitchen was fabulous and the whole condo couldn't have been better - fully equipped everything, right down to beach supplies. Fabulous place - couldn't recommend it more. Hope to return some day.
The Cuatchons . Jun 2012
Maui . . . the perfect place for a family vacation. Three generations spending time together created lasting memories for all of us. We enjoyed our stay at your home because we all felt like it was out own. Having coffee on the lanai in the early morning and looking at the beautiful views of the ocean and mountains was a reflective and peaceful experience; a great way to start the day. Watching gorgeous sunsets from the lanai was a wonderful way to end the day. Our family will always member these days at your home. Thanks for sharing it with us!
