About Maureen and Robert Parker

Robert and Maureen live in Canada and feel really fortunate to have a place in paradise at Honua Kai Resort and Spa and to be able to connect with so many wonderful guests! Growing up, Rob’s family had vacation homes in Maui for over 30 years and his family moved to Maui for a year when Rob was 13 years old. Rob and his sister went to school at King Kamehameha in Lahaina that year. Robert now owns his own construction company and Maureen is a Registered Clinical Counsellor. After marrying, Rob and Maureen chose Maui as the perfect place to celebrate their honeymoon and later stayed at Honua Kai Resort and Spa twice with their children before purchasing from the developer in 2013. Honua Kai Resort and Spa really feels like coming home.

With warm aloha,

Maureen and Robert

Maureen and Robert Parker purchased this studio in 2013

Why Maureen and Robert Parker chose Maui

Honua Kai Resort and Spa on Kaanapali Beach, Maui, has everything imaginable. Maui is such an amazing place with tropical great weather all year round (voted “Best Island” Conde Nast Traveler for 19 years) and Kaanapali Beach not only has less rain than other areas of Maui, but also a beautiful five mile stretch of soft sand and crystal clear, gentle water.

What makes this studio unique

Walking into Honua Kai Resort and Spa we feel the relaxed, aloha spirit of Hawaii. It’s a magical experience… we ease into the day with lattes or ice cream from A'ina market right in the resort and then either play at the pools, relax in the sun, go off on an adventure or find great shops to browse. We often end the day with a great home cooked feast using ingredients from Costco and local markets and end the day in a hot tub or with an evening stroll along the ocean boardwalk. We are never without our camera to capture wonderful memories to sustain us until our return to Maui.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We are nearing the end of our fabulous three week stay at Honua Kai Resort and Spa… somehow time seems different here in Maui…. there are many moments when time seems suspended, when one is lost in moments of pure joy, love and laughter and yet it seems like in a blink time has flown by, and only captured in a memory. The other morning I decided to ‘make the most’ of my morning walk and leave my camera in the condo so as to get a workout before starting my day. Hawaii has a way of teaching many lessons if one is open. Rob decided to join me this morning and humoured my need to walk briskly but by the time we reached Black Rock he had convinced me to leave the walking path and kick off our shoes and meander along the shoreline – the water was just cool enough to be refreshing as it gently caressed our ankles and invited us to enjoy the moment.



From years of boating, Rob has picked up the habit of always scanning the ocean and he suddenly spotted dolphins off shore. They were only about a block out and travelled along the edge with us, all the while jumping and spinning while we made our way along the beach. Like a pied piper, the spinning dolphins collected many followers along the way back till we finally reached Honua Kai and like the finale at the fireworks they exploded in unison jumping and spinning before heading off to Lanai. We headed off also but to Ãina for our morning latte, still spouting about our experience, when an outrigger guide shared that he saw the spinning dolphins from the water and from his viewpoint there were around 300 of them! Hawaii is teaching me to slow down, smell the plumeria flowers, take time to stroll along the water’s edge, and be open to the gifts that Maui offers.



We just purchased our brand new condo from the developer and really enjoyed spending quality time in our vacation home and can't wait to come back! We loved starting each day on our lanai looking out to the ocean nibbling on local pineapple, mango and apple bananas topped with yogurt and granola. We enjoyed the sun filled days at the pools or Kaanapali Beach and explored close-by sights like the blowhole and canopy topped jungle valleys within a half an hour drive! We are really excited about sharing our vacation home in paradise with wonderful guests and hearing about their wonderful experiences. Honua Kai Resort and Spa is a really magical place!

Anniversary Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I honeymooned in Maui 20 years ago and couldn't think of a better place to celebrate our anniversary. We've done some traveling over the years but have never stayed at a vacation rental property before. Maureen and Robert's condo was absolutely perfect for our getaway. I knew immediately after speaking with Maureen that we found our place! Honua Kai resort and the condo are both even more beautiful than the pictures, and the staff were so friendly and helpful. They have taken so much care and pride in making their condo the perfect place to stay. We were so thankful for the helpful information provided about the unit, the resort, maps, places of interest, as well as a completely stocked condo with everything you could possibly need. We used the boogie boards, beach chairs, beach umbrella, and cooler that they provided every day as we explored a different beach. We got to snorkel for the very first time at Kaanapali Beach (in front of the resort) which was amazing and still remains as my favorite beach. If you love to walk or run, the beachwalk is perfect for those early morning runs or romantic evening strolls. Duke's restaurant on site was an added bonus, with breakfast, lunch, happy hour and supper a few steps away if you didn't feel like driving or cooking. I truly can't say enough wonderful things about our entire stay. Too bad we can't squeeze our entire family into your condo for out next trip! Thank you Maureen, Robert and Michelle for everything. We have fallen in love with Maui all over again and definitely won't be waiting 20 years to come back!

Disappointed to say the least

  • 2 of 5

To be fair the condo itself for my purposes was very nice as were the owners themselves. So I would give a 4 out of 5 if that was it. However,,,,!!! that was DEFINITELY NOT IT. I had to deal with a MARIA and CANDICE. Now Candice seemed very sweet and helpful initially. Maria was a NIGHTMARE!! First much of my dialogue was through Candice and then on the day of my arrival i was switched to Maria. So AFTER 26 HRS of travel and now driving a rental car in route I called Maria no less than 3 times and left 2 diff texts messages. No response for 20 min. I called again panicking a bit because my phone was at 3% charge and asked her to please call asap. I still had no idea where I was to meet her. It's now midnight and after 10 min I get a text telling me she is busy with other rentors and will call me back in 5 min.......THIS IS AFTER I TOLD HER MY PHONE WAS DYING!!........15min later she called and we finally met. She appeared inconvenienced to say the least and made it clear from her behavior she did not feel like being there at midnight. I would have appreciated her ALREADY BEING THERE. HOWEVER, I HAD TO WAIT 20 MIN FOR HER TO ARRIVE. She was abrupt with showing the room and obviously was in a hurry to leave. Provided one plastic key and left. Needless to say I was never calling her again.

My trip was wonderful. I had a great time without a doubt but that was all on me. The day before departure I lost my one key in the ocean while swimming. I immediately texted and called Candice and Maria requesting someone meet me with a replacement. Not only did I not get a call or text back that night. I never got one the next day and no other key was provided. Therefore for the remainder of my trip I had to keep my door propped open and my personal items unattended while leaving the room. in addition, i was informed my room was to be chemically treated by 9 am and it would leave a significant odor. The condo owner nor my lovely concierge service in Maria and Candice bothered to warn me about this. Therefore am I pleased ....with the owner and the condo yes!....with the service ....ABSOLUTELY NOT.

Sincerely, Dr Zain

Excellent condo!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect! My husband and I stayed there while we were in Hawaii for our wedding and honeymoon and we couldn't have asked for a better place to stay! The condo was very clean, comfortable, and well stocked with beach goodies! The view from the lanai is gorgeous and a great place to enjoy your meals! Maureen was great to work with through the entire booking process and during our stay. We will definitely book again!

A Little Bit of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This studio condo has all the comforts of home, from a home-worthy kitchen to a king bed you'll love to fall into each night. This entire property, and specifically this unit, were in perfect repair and featured quality furnishings that were both Hawaiian and Contemporary. Extra touches that saved lots of dough in the long run were the supplied umbrella, beach chairs, towels and boogie boards, all in like new condition. The owners also kindly supplied basic seasonings for simple cooking, coffee and three different methods for making coffee - French press was a delightful surprise! The property manager/concierge Candice was efficient in checking us in and familiarizing us with condo features and also booked two trips for us that were exactly what we wanted despite booking fairly last minute. All in All we would be very likely to rent this exact unit again when planning a trip to Kaanapali.
