After 15 months of no travel, we were looking forward to a week in Maui. We wanted peace and quiet, but easy access to other things on the island. We found the Hono Kai Condo Resort and connected with Tracey who has Unit A-17. What a find! Tracey and Peter are amazing hosts. The condo is small, but perfect. It is well-appointed with a nice bed, a comfy sofa bed (how often does that NOT happen, right?), nice towels, linens, dishes, etc. Our condo was ground floor. It does not directly face the ocean, but you can see it from the lanai and it is at most 50 ft. from the beach front. This turned out to be perfect. Privacy but easy ocean access. The condos are right on the 6 mile beach so you could walk to Kihei if you wanted. It's about 20 minutes from the airport, 20 minutes from Lahaina, and 10-15 minutes from Kihei. You can connect with Tracey through VRBO.

Hono Kai B8 Condo VRBO Property ID 253390 This condo was perfect for our family of four; the open floor plan was spacious enough to not feel cramped, even if there wasn’t a lot of privacy due to the open floor plan. Here’s a list, which is how I appreciate reviews to be organized: Pros: -There are boogie boards, beach chairs, and beach towels available for use. The kitchen is well equipped, and there are beachside grills for guest use. -AC was lovely. Yes, the tradewinds are cooling, but sometimes you just want some manufactured cold air. -There are quarter laundry machines just down the hall. -The best thing was the location: the balcony was the perfect place to enjoy my morning coffee, or to feel like I was on the beach, without being on the beach. -Ma’alaea is in the middle of the island, so we weren’t far from anything; it served as a perfect home base. Ma’alaea is the 2nd windiest harbor in the world, so expect some waves. It didn’t bother us at all, as it made for an enjoyable time. -The beach here is sandy, so we didn’t need water shoes. -I never had a reason to contact management, so I cannot comment on responsiveness. Owners were very accommodating and flexible to our changes due to varying airline schedules. Cons (take this with a grain of salt…I REALLY had to think about this in the spirit of a comprehensive review): -The upstairs loft bed is the most comfortable. The “master” bed downstairs is tolerable, at best. The 3rd bed is a futon, so take from that what you will. -The parking spaces are quite small, so if you have a large rental, prepare for squeeze! (This is not unique to the Hono Kai; parking spaces are small everywhere we went!) -We were instructed via post-it note to not use the dishwasher. We did not inquire as to why, and it didn’t bother us to hand-wash. -None of these “cons” matter because WE WERE IN MAUI! I would 100% stay here again for the location, value, and accommodations. Mahalo for sharing this special place with us! We had the trip of a lifetime.

First, the pool and beach area is misrepresented. The pool is closed off with ugly plywood so there is no ocean view. The palm trees are cut down. One of the units where we stayed, A- 7 is managed by a company called My Perfect Stays. We had the worst experience ever with them. The AC wasn’t working in 90 degree weather. They sent a technician to fix it. The technician refused to wear a mask and also didn’t fix the issue - he said the parts would take days to arrive. The portable back up Ac unit in the room wasn’t working either since the hose was disconnected so it was blowing hot and cold air. We took a photo of the disconnected hose and reported it - the host, Zac from My Perfect Stays then proceeded to accuse us of tampering with the hose! Please stay away!

Though this property is not close to shops and restaurants, it is central in location as far as driving to those places as well as the airport, Lahaina, and Kihei spots. Coastguard Beach is an easy walk to the back and Haycraft Park can be accessed through the beach (very short walk). There were a lot of tents (staying overnight though the park says no camping), though it was clean. There are lots of turtles (you can see their heads bobbing up and down with the waves) on this beach though I was not able to snorkel as I am not a strong swimmer and too scared of the surf (I heard that it is a high surf week when we went though the last day we were there, the surf seemed very mild). There were people who were more comfortable than I was in the water. You cannot see sunrise/sunset in this part of the beach unless you walk to Haycraft Park for sunrise (right of the water is east). There is a laundry area on the first floor as well as the second floor (need quarters). Parking, though not assigned, was not hard to find and the area felt safe. Parking spots accommodates mostly small cars. The condo complex itself is clean and well-maintained on the outside. The small semi-circular pool is at the back of the condo facing the Ocean. Very nice view. No hot tubs.

We stayed in a corner beach facing condo unit. It was a 2 story loft with amazing views. The beach is right in front of you. The beach was rocky in some areas, but we were able to float out on a raft with snorkel masks and see lots of corral, some fish, and other cool ocean things. It was a fairly quiet complex. We never had trouble finding a seat, and we usually had the pool to ourselves. There were also sand toys, boogie boards, and floats in our room to use. There is a man who comes every morning to clean the pool and BBQ area. There is a laundry area on each floor with reading material if needed.
