About the property

Gorgeous ground floor condo is a HUGE 2 bed/2 bath with private lawn/garden.

My name is Trevor Alt and this is KONEA 142. Aloha and welcome to the KING of the GROUND FLOOR two bedroom, two bath condominium homes at the Honua Kai Resort & Spa!

Honua Kai was rated the #3 resort in the entire state of Hawaii by readers of Conde Nast Traveler!

LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION! This private oasis is located on the BOTTOM FLOOR of the quiet NORTH side of the Konea tower - the Northern of Honua Kai's 2 condominium towers - far away from the Westin property SOUTH of Honua Kai's Hokulani tower and the construction of the Luana townhomes to the EAST of Honua Kai's 2 towers that will begin in early 2018. You can't be farther from the noise and activity and you won't see or hear it! There simply isn't a better location in the Honua Kai resort.

*When you inquire, I'll email a resort map so you know where you'll be at Honua Kai. It is VITAL to compare my location to other units.

Please click on the video icon in the pictures for a VIDEO TOUR of my condominium home and the resort.

My cancellation policy is incorrectly stated by VRBO as no refund. Please see my description below for my cancellation/refund policy.

EXTRAS: 1) 65 inch 4k UHD Samsung Smart TV (not shown in pictures). 2) Playstation 4 with games. 3) Upgraded FAST WIFI - new AC wireless router. 4) Netflix service for streaming movies on my account or yours on all 3 TVs. 5) Upgraded memory foam mattress for the sleeper couch makes it very comfortable. 6) A comfortable padded lounge chair for sunbathing on our own private lawn while keeping an eye on your kiddos!

Enjoy the wide open spacious feeling with 11 foot vaulted ceilings ~ only on the GROUND FLOOR ~ and 1,230 square feet of interior living space. You get 2 master suites and an open living and dining room and kitchen floor plan. Oversized custom glass doors OPEN THE ENTIRE WALL to a BIG lanai with outdoor dining and lounging furniture, bordering your own private lawn area. You get 420 MORE SQUARE FEET of furnished outdoor living! From there it is a short one minute walk down a beautifully manicured grassy walkway to the 3 pools, beach, gas BBQ area with Viking grills, and Duke's Restaurant and Bar. I have installed a KEYED lock on the lanai door for secure access.

Surrounded by beautiful tropical landscaping, the back yard is the most private at Honua Kai due our unique location on the Northern border of the resort with a fence hidden by a hedge providing ultimate privacy. Quickest access to the beach, pools, Viking gas BBQs, and Duke's Restaurant. You may also choose to walk out the front door of our condo which is situated right by the door to the interior courtyard. From either entrance, you reach all of the stunning outdoor attractions of this gorgeous resort faster than everyone else staying at Honua Kai - they have to take the elevator! You'll only use the elevator to get to the underground parking garage faster than anyone else. Our GROUND FLOOR location is so convenient for hanging out at the pools or beach to pop into your own condominium to use the bathroom, freshen your drinks, have a snack, or grab some of the provided snorkeling equipment, boogie boards, or beach chairs! Right around the corner in our building is Whaler's General Store, the GYM for an invigorating workout with weights and cardio, and the adjacent SPA offers treatments for indulgent pampering. You deserve it!

Honua Kai is the newest and most exciting resort in West Maui, with our luxury Konea tower completed in 2011. It offers all the conveniences of home and all the amenities of a world class resort and spa. It is beautifully landscaped with lush tropical gardens and swaying palms. Enjoy all the features of the 3 naturally landscaped pools, 4 hot tubs, 10 Viking gas BBQs, restaurant and coffee barista / delis, convenience stores, and the world famous Ka’anapali North Beach just steps beyond. There is a reef right in front of the resort, great for snorkeling with the turtles. Enjoy walks down the boardwalk, past Black Rock with its world famous cliff jumping and snorkeling, down to Whaler’s Village with all its wonderful shops and restaurants. Tommy Bahama, Lululemon, and much more!

Come experience my Aloha and pride of ownership! You don't pay extra for a management company's cut - that means you get a better experience and more value for your money. I am the owner and I go out of my way to earn your loyalty. (See my reviews) It is my goal that this will become your Maui home for many years to come!

The Honua Kai Resort and Spa features an enormous 'aquatic playground' - an elaborate 3 pool, 4 hot tub, pond and stream network with small secluded areas and protected paths that lead to the beach. Three separate massive pool areas, each offering a distinctly different experience. Hokulani's infinity-edged Formal Pool features terraced lounge seating facing the pool and ocean, and a large hot tub on each side. In front of Konea, the River Pool is a haven of peace and privacy, with two quiet zones and aqua lounges where you can put your chair in the water and relax. The middle pool is the family or 'Ohana' Pool, a very active, playful area with a water slide, waterfall, and a special area with a sandy beach for small children and parents. Several BBQ areas with Viking gas grills and 4 hot tubs are located thoughout the grounds.

2) Our unit is completely outfitted with beach towels, Tommy Bahama beach chairs and beach umbrella, quality Boogie Boards, sets of snorkeling equipment (mask, snorkel, and fins), Sony combination music MP3 player dock/alarm clock, portable Bluetooth rechargeable stereo speaker system, cooler, barbecue utensils, in room washer and dryer (Bosch), in room safe, 3 DVD players (we have DVDs for all ages), 3 Flat screen TVs (65 inch Samsung 4K with Playstion 4 with games in living room), pack n' play portable crib, Fisher Price portable high chair / booster seat, etc. I've added a keyed lock to the back door so you can leave securely from either the front or back doors. I've also added a garbage disposal in the sink which is a rare amenity.

3) Other amenities include: onsite ocean view dining and poolside food and drink service (Duke's Restaurant and Bar), onsite market (Aina Gourmet Market), onsite spa (on our floor), onsite gym (also on our floor), sandy beach, snorkeling, and whale watching.

4) If you can tear yourself away from the Honua Kai Resort itself (big 'IF'), Whaler's Village is a very nice shopping and dining experience about two miles South, and it is a great place to park to enjoy snorkeling and cliff jumping at Black Rock. There is validated parking and limited public beach access free parking, or it's a nice 30 minute walk on the ocean front boardwalk.

5) Lahaina's Front Street is 7 miles away and offers tons of shops, art galleries, restaurants, and is the site of Ululani's Hawaiian Shave Ice, our second favorite local dessert after the Hula Pie at Duke's (onsite at Honua Kai). We also love the Pacific O and Fleetwood's restaurants in Lahaina.

6) Another favorite Maui activity is downhill biking on the Haleakala dormant volcano. There are several companies that offer this and they are based in Paia and Haiku. When in Paia, enjoy some delicious pizza at Paia Flatbread Company, or have a bucket list meal at Mama's Fish House nearby (has been rated the #1 restaurant in the world). Paia is also the windsurfing and kiteboarding capital of the world and close by is Jaws (Pe'ahi), the world's most famous big wave tow-in surfing spot. If you are on Maui when the surf gets huge at Jaws, you can watch surfers challenge 50 foot waves which helicopters film them. If you have a telephoto camera you may be showing your friends pictures of waves literally 8 times taller than the surfers riding them. These are just a few of Maui's offerings. I'll also offer recommendations for dining and activities when you book your stay.

After you book your stay, I will provide recommendations for my favorite Maui activities and dining, along with local tips for places to visit and things to do. From high school through law school, I bussed and waited tables and developed an appreciation for great food and service. My wife and I splurge on dining when we visit Maui as a couple. When we bring our 4 kids with us we are looking for great dining and activity values. I'll give you all our favorite options for splunging and for best values. Since I've visited Maui about twenty times now, I know it well and I've sought to provide my guests with the best Maui experience possible. I want you to rave to your friends and family about the "Best. Vacation. Ever." I will earn your five star reviews, your return visits, and your referrals! Aloha!
