We rented our 1-bedroom condo through VRBO and we saved significantly by doing so. The main difference I could see is that we weren't allowed to use the resort towels at the pool, however, our condo came with more than enough towels, plus a washer and dryer, so that was never an issue for us and well worth the amount we saved.
We stayed in Unit 210 in the Konea tower. Our lanai faced south east over the other Honua Kai building. We loved the spot and enjoyed the beauty of the gorgeous West Maui mountains. We saw multiple rainbows throughout our stay here.
The rooms are gorgeous and updated, the pools here are fantastic! Most of them are a shallow depth at only 3-3.5 feet deep. This was PERFECT for our young children (4 and 6 years old) who could touch in most of the pool!
Yes it's windy here in Kaanapali, but that helps keep you cooler in the warm sun. The ocean was great for snorkeling on a calm wind day- there are reefs which attract beautiful sealife.
Take advantage of being in Superior West Maui too- you are close to many natural beauties including Napili Beach, Kapalua Beach, Mokuleia Beach (our FAV!!), Honolua Bay and Nakalele Blowhole. You are also less than a mile from a Times Supermarket, ABC Store/Gas Station and yummy/cheap Ono Tacos. At Honua Kai you are 2 miles from Whaler's Village (we ran there along the coastal trail a few times)-- the free hula show there is very entertaining! Just 2 miles from Black Rock Beach where you can watch cliff divers. And you are just a short drive to quaint downtown Lahaina, make sure to check out the Vladimir Kush surreal art gallery! Enjoy your trip!
I would highly recommend Honua Kai to anyone traveling with family!
