On the beach

Posted Sep 23, 2014
My family and I enjoyed our stay with Hono Koa. We got an ocean front suite where our front entrance was walking out to the beach! The room was spacious, clean, and comfortable. Although there was no AC, we had our fans and sliding doors open to the ocean breeze. The beach is a bit rough around high tide but a short distance drive to Kapalua will take you to a nice bay for snorkeling. There were turtles near the coral around mid afternoon. And the sun deck was nice to lounge around sunset. I will definitely stay here again! P.S. they offer a washer and dryer unit in the room that's free of charge!

Our Stay at Hono Koa at Lahaina, Maui, HI.

Posted Sep 1, 2014
Pros: Washer/dryer in the room and close to supermarket.
Cons: The facility is a little dated. It could use some remodeling or refreshing of paint.
Location: It's close to a supermarket and a gas station (ABC Stores). There are also small shops and restaurants nearby.
We enjoyed our stay at the Hono Koa. It's a very small condo/timeshare type setup with two bed rooms and two baths and all the amenities one would expect from a condo. There is a small pool and direct access to a small patch of beach. The balcony with a view to the ocean was a very nice touch. The entire place was a bit dated but the staff kept it very clean. The best thing about this place is that it's never crowded.

We were able to check in early but the desk manager was not friendly at all and gave us wrong information.

Please accept our sincere apology if a member of our resort staff was anything less than completely courteous in your interactions. Helpful and friendly customer service is our top priority, and we are very sorry this was not your experience. We will certainly pass along your comments to the resort general manager to prevent a recurrence.

Great view and beach access

Posted Aug 22, 2014
Only complaint is no air conditioning. With doors and windows open it wasn't too bad. Loved the place other than that!

Aloha, Rick. Thank you for your recent visit and kind remarks. We are glad that you enjoyed the view and found our location convenient to the beach - two very important positives. Many Maui resorts do not have central air, relying instead on the temperate climate to provide a cooling effect. Please accept our apology for any discomfort. Thank you once again staying with us. We hope you will consider us again on your next visit to the islands.

Wonderful for our 40th Wedding Anniversary Trip

Posted Aug 12, 2014
Pros: The condo was very nicely decorated with a beautiful view of the ocean. The bed was comfortable and the kitchen had everything you might need.
Cons: No improvements needed.
Location: Quiet area with a Farmer's Market grocery store nearby which has an outdoor Farmer's Market weekly. Easy drive south to Lahaina to stroll and shop.
This complex is small and right on the ocean. There is a small beach and we snorkeled three times during our stay. Snorkeling was great as we saw lots of colorful fish and several green sea turtles. We rented equipment from Boss Frog's and it worked great. It really pays to get equipment that fits well. The condo (#304) was lovely with a perfect view of the ocean from the lanai. We enjoyed our morning coffee watching as the sun rose behind us lighting up Moloka'i, which was just across the water. This condo was everything we had hoped it would be. We are much more comfortable in a small complex as opposed to a large resort. Thank you Hono Koa Vacation Club! If we are fortunate enough to come back to Maui, we will certainly come back.

Older Condo, OK for the price.

Posted Aug 2, 2014
OK, but not great. No hot water for 2 days. Called maintenance and office, received a recording. Requested call back with status of system repair, did not receive call. Second bedroom blinds did not work properly, screen doors old and need replacement. Condo staff going around with leaf blower screaming for 1 hour at 8:00 AM. No lighting on lanai, so eating or reading on the deck after 7:00 PM is not possible. Door to room was so heavily spring loaded that my wife could not open it. The condo is old, but updates are recent. The property is so small there is little more than a walkway around both sides, this is also the only access to the beach, pool, and BBQ's. Small sandy beach at the condo, OK at low tide. Overall OK, I have had worse, and certainly have had better.

I loved this place. Clean, updated and quiet.

Posted Jul 11, 2014
Pros: Fully equipt and close to everything. Kid friendly.
Cons: There isn't air conditioning but the ceiling fans did a great job.
Location: Nice beach for kids and shopping area with walking distance.
Excellent place. I loved the little beach area. The facility was super clean. You could borrow beach items such as blow ups, boogie boards and such from the office.

Nice place in convenient location

Posted Jun 9, 2014
The place is a little outdated but the rooms are very comfortable and spacious. It's within a close distance to farmers market and other stores. It's right by the ocean but there really is no beach because the water comes up almost to the wall of rocks leaving only a narrow passage of sand. Other then that a great place to stay.
