Photos and Description of this holiday studio in Kaanapali

1 studio, 1 Bathroom Sleeps 3

IMAGINE a Hawaiian vacation at Maui’s newest full ownership resort … where the sea, sand and gentle warm breezes welcome you.

KONEA is the newest tower, with a fire bowl water feature in the courtyard to enjoy the quiet of paradise and spectacular Maui sunsets.

All the amenities of a NEW unsurpassed LUXURIOUS HOTEL combined with the comfort, spaciousness and features of a private residence with FULLY EQUIPPED KITCHEN – no wonder HONUA KAI RESORT & SPA with its 38 acres of lush, landscaped grounds containing both tranquil areas and also an expansive aquatic playground is rated as one of the top beachfront luxury resorts in Maui.

From the moment you arrive, magnificent open lobbies with ocean views greet you and the lush landscaping with fragrant gardens and water features draw you further into a resort and spa with world class distinction.

Honua Kai has something for everyone…. a stunning infinity-edge pool with cabanas, aqua loungers, pool side beverage and food service, hot tubs, swim-under waterfalls, ‘lazy river’, quiet pool, and sandy bottom pool area with water slide, activity center with rentals, 10 outdoor Viking gas grills areas and on-site gourmet market and Duke's restaurant. … all of this and more and our unit is listed at competitive prices (typically far less than booking from the resort directly!)

**** RESERVATION REQUESTS: if your stay does not meet the NIGHTLY REQUIREMENTS, please feel free to phone or email us to EXPLORE OPTIONS as we may be flexible depending upon the time of year, availability and how your dates line up with existing booking.

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!

Amazing! We will be back!

We just left Maui and we already miss it! This unit was fantastic but that isn't what makes it great! Maureen was wonderful to chat with and respond to questions. We flew in on a day when a wildfire was burning in West Maui. The concierge service that the owners work with went above and beyond. With the only road and communications cut off Candice was there to meet us 11 hours later. The friendly call from Maureen the next day to make sure we made it was even better!

(what a kind & thoughtful surprize). Like you we are always sad to leave our place in paradise & can picture Jeff “crunching numbers” to find ways to spend more time in Maui” Until we connect again Aloha nui loa, Maureen & Robert

Spacious, Quiet, Serene with all the amenities!

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I just returned from spending 7 days at this property and were completely satisfied. We have typically stayed at 5 star resort properties on the island and this particular unit was by far better than any hotel we have yet to stay at. The unit itself has sliding doors which disappear for a full indoor, outdoor experience allowing the ocean breezes from the deck into the room. The kitchen was well appointed with granite counter tops, all the utensils needed for cooking and the furnishings were modern and stylish. The bed had high end linens and the bathroom features a separate shower and bath tub with dual sink and quality towels. The unit also features a washer/dryer unit and even has boogie boards and beach chairs for your pleasure. We particularly enjoyed the location of this unit in the building which is away from the noisy pool area but still offered a beautiful garden and partial ocean view. Honua Kai Resort is close to many restaurants and activities which made it easy to spend the day either shopping, zip lining or simply going to the beach. Having Duke's restaurant adjacent to the pool area made it nice for an early evening happy hour or occasional meal. The gym is very well appointed and was never crowded which made our daily workout easy and efficient. The staff at this property were particularly helpful and always in good spirit. This resort never feels overcrowded and offers easy parking underneath the hotel or outside in an adjacent lot. There is valet service at the front entrance too which made it easy for our family to load up and go on our many outings. This vacation was by far one of the most relaxing and comfortable due to this lovely property. I highly recommend a stay at Honua Kai-Konea Resort in this particular unit.

My husband and I were lucky enough to stay in this amazing condo for a week to celebrate our first wedding anniversary. The location is PERFECT, and the views from the Lanai are just amazing! We loved using the kitchen (cooked over 50% of our meals during our stay), and enjoyed breakfast and dinner on the Lanai. The hospitality from Robert and Maureen was so nice, and Candice greeted us upon arrival and showed us the condo. Duke's restaurant on site is AMAZING, happy hour everyday from 3-5, the best calamari we've ever had, and really yummy food! We loved the pool, and snorkel gear & paddleboards are available on-site which was so convenient! We loved walking along Kaanapali beach from the resort, or along the pathway that goes behind the beach along all of the Kaanapali properties (however, Honua Kai was definitely the best). If you are looking for the perfect spot for 2 to enjoy a romantic time in Maui, you MUST book this condo! We can't wait to return!
