Wonderful way to spend our 25th anniversary!
Renting from Louis Thrinh was a pleasure. He was very prompt in our communications and provided lots of very helpful tips from where to rent our car to where to eat! The condo had all of the amenities that we needed including beach chairs, boogie boards, beach umbrellas, noodles and mats! We used the cooler beach bags daily as we snorkeled right outside the resort. No need to go anywhere for snorkeling as it was convenient and safe. We saw many different fish as well as turtles! We packed lunches and went on many road trips using one of the many guide books that Louis provided for us. Our favorite one was "Maui Revealed". We ate at Dukes several times, they had very good food and live music daily. The sunsets were amazing. We parked in the underground garage it was very convenient to the room. The home was very clean and comfortable. We had a few issues with a clogged shower drain but Louis told us how to fix that and a little trouble with the freezer not making ice or keeping things completely frozen. We are confident that Louis will get these things fixed as soon as possible. The location of the resort is perfect. Very close to Whalers Village and Lahaina so we were able to get to those destinations easily, but far enough away to feel a little more quiet and less busy. We hope to come back soon and would definitely stay at Honua Kai Resort in Louis Trinh's home!
We stayed at this condo during our honeymoon in Maui. I have to say there were so many great things about Maui, but my interaction with Louis was absolutely great. He was so helpful with all his advice on things to do, where to go and overall. He's got a ton of extras at the condo to help save money, boards, noodles, chairs. Plenty of pots, pans. The condo is really well kept and he really takes pride in maintaining it.
Overall great experience. Would def. come back here on my next trip to Maui and would recommend to anyone looking for a great condo with all of the resort ammenities.

Getting Maui'd in Paradise
We absolutely enjoyed our stay at Honua Kai Resort during our "Getting Maui'd" week. The condo had a beautiful unobstructed view of the ocean and we enjoyed the peace and quiet of this large 1-bedroom condo. The condo was extremely clean, modern, and had lots of extra amenities that we enjoyed using (boogie boards, pool noodles, beach chairs, beach umbrellas, cooler bag).
Louis was such a joy to work with! He was always checking on what else he could do for us even before we arrived. What a surprise to find he had a gift basket delivered to us for our wedding/honeymoon! He was a breeze to work with and everything went off without a hitch! We didn't have any issues whatsoever.
We enjoyed the underground parking and getting our morning coffee at the on-site market downstairs. Plus, I have a lot of food allergies so it was great the on-site market had lots of gluten-free and dairy-free options for me to enjoy!
Duke's restaurant on property was always filled with fun and we enjoyed quite a few happy hours here and at the BBQ area. We had 42 people attend our wedding week so the resort was a great meeting place. The staff was extremely friendly, and the bell men unloaded all of our Costco groceries and delivered them to our room!
We couldn't have asked for a better experience than staying at the Honua Kai and working with Louis.
Thank you Louis (and family) and we hope to return soon! We loved every minute we were there.
Amazing resort, condo and island!
For the past 5 years we've been spending our time off in Mexico at a 5 star resort. After doing some research we found some equally nice resorts in Maui and decided it was time to vacation in Hawaii. We read review after review checking trip advisor and many other web deals. I was tempted to stay a few blocks off the beach but the other options didn't come with everything this property did and the savings wouldn't have been worth it. We decided to rent unit #514 at Honua Kai. I wasn't sure how it worked using Vrbo but it's like anything the first time. We spoke with Louis and he was very helpful in planning our trip to Maui from a rental car recommendations that saved us, to the best Luau and where to snorkel. When we arrived Louis checked in to make sure everything was perfect for our arrival. The resort had everything we were looking for with pools, gyms, ocean views, great beach in front of the resort, cute cafe and a great restaurant. The room it self was very nice and had everything you could need. Our bed was so comfortable we melted into bed every night. The soaps, shampoos and lotions were wonderful french products. The kitchen had everything for cooking in the unit and packing lunch to take on your daily adventure. We loved the boogie boards and beach chairs in the unit for our use. Coffee and breakfast on the lanai every morning was a great start to the day. I loved the doors that fold back so you can take in the amazing views. I didn't realize I would do so much laundry but with the washer and dryer in the unit there was no need for dirty beach or workout clothes. We are looking into booking another trip in august because we were not ready to leave! I would highly recommend booking unit #514 through Vrbo and Louis Trinh!

Awesome Time at Honua Kai
This was our first time to Maui and we could not have selected a better place to stay than Honua Kai. We have two girls (6 and 5 y.o.) and we wanted to stay at a luxurious place close the the beach. Honua Kai delivered on both. Check-in was so easy. Louis provided us all of the details and we simply walked to the front desk and they provided us all the information we needed to park and get to our condo.Louis was very accessible, accomodating, and a great source of information. The Trinh's condo unit was super clean. The kitchen looked very new with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. There was a good washing machine and dryer and the bathroom looked new too. Overall, the condo itself more than lived up to our expectations. Honua Kai had 3 great pools, one large pool, a medium size pool great for kids with a water slide, hidden cave with waterfalls, and a small heated kiddie pool, and a "river like" pool that you can float around in. The beach was clean and the waves were not very big, again great for our kids who love to swim in the ocean. And if you go out just a bit into the ocean you can see the coral reefs and fish. We had dinner one night at Dukes was was very pleased with the food as well as the music and hula dancers. Dukes was a bit pricey, but the food was very good. The location of Honua Kai was also a plus. We were only a few minutes North of Lahaina Town and a few minutes south of other beaches and black rock. We spent a few days at the Hilton Waiakola Resort on the Big Island. While we enjoyed our time at the Hilton, we all agreed that we had the best time at Honua Kai. We felt the service at Honua Kai was better, the room was better, and the location was much better than the Hilton. Overall, we loved our time in Maui and Honua Kai! Thanks for sharing your condo with us Louis!
Paradise and fun for the whole family
Louis was very friendly and timely in email responses to any questions that arose prior to our visit. He had helpful tips and places to visit. The accommodations were exceptional with up to date appliances, use of Dvds for those early nights. Our family of 4 enjoyed 12 nights in paradise and comfort. We enjoyed breakfast and most dinners on the lanai where we had a spectacular view of the ocean and could see whales breaching. The location was within walking distance to the Times Market for groceries. The property locsation, pools and amenities allowed us to just walk out the door to enjoy pools, beaches and Yogurtland in Whaler's Village. Some days we didn't need to drive anywhere to snorkel; swim or shop. We used the boogie boards; towels, beach chairs and cooler provided in the unit on beach days. We would highly recommend this unit in the Honua Kai.

What an amazing honeymoon!!!
Wow! Words cannot express how beautiful Maui and your condo are! My husband and I were blown away by the beauty and had a great time on our honeymoon. All the amenities in the condo make traveling so easy and we felt right at home.
We did a lot of fun things:
Jet skiing, the road to Hana, Golf, Lahiana, Duke's, Haleakala, Snorkeling.
We found some great out of the way places to eat:
The Gazebo, The Seahouse, Lulu's, Cj's Deli, Pizza Paradiso. We also grilled steaks one night on the grills.
I could go on and on but I won't. We both hated to leave and are already making our plans to return.
Kimmy and all the people at the resort were very nice and helpful, especially with our really late arrival. I was impressed with how quiet the rooms were and that bed is incredible!!! My husband is now researching this so we can get one at home.
Louis and Kristine, thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home and your little slice of heaven with us! We truly loved our time there.
Mr and Mrs Taylor
The unit was very comfortable and beautifully decorated. We felt right at home. The Trihns have thought of everything. Love the big screen tv's and the bed was very comfortable. Would have liked a better view of the ocean or the pool. The amenities of the Honua Kai are five star. The location was great for snorkling. Best on the island.
A delightful vacation experience
What a gracious host and hostess the Trinh's are! Their prompt, courteous and always gracious responses to our emails were much appreciated. Everything was just as they stated: gorgeous view, a key-less entry made for easy access, top of the line toiletries a delight for the body and being able to use their private beach chairs for early morning beach trips and then the cooler on our trip to Hana, made our vacation that much easier and enjoyable. The resort is gorgeous, well maintained and the swimming pools (3) all allow this to be a vacation destination that will suit both families and couples looking for a quieter time. First class restaurants and spa facilities are near by and plentiful. Being able to use the underground parking (for a $10 per day fee) and the concierge and small grocery store all help make this a vacation destination that will be sure to please.
Thank you Trinh family.
Best vacation ever!!
Joe and I had a fantastic time at Honua Kai!!! Your condo was perfect for us, really allowing us the freedom to cook most meals at home. We also loved being so close to the beautiful beach and having access to the beach chairs and the cooler.
We went on Blue Water Rafting and highly recommend it for anyone looking for an adventure (we snorkeled Molokini and saw dolphins on a raft that travels at 40 knots)! We did the entire Road To Hana (what spectacular views)! We ate at Mama's (it was fabulous)! And we watched the sun rise at Mt Haleakala! The other days consisted of enjoying the variety of beaches and snorkeling offshore! We also loved Duke's and ate there 3 times. This was the best vacation! If we are lucky enough to return to Maui, we would love to stay at your condo again!
Thank you so much for sharing such a perfect place!
Kiersen and Joe
Great condo with a view!
Thank you very much for the great condo!
The kitchen is well-equipped, we even made strawberry smoothie!
We especially enjoyed having breakfast on the balcony with a view. The bed was so comfortable, we were not able to wake up :)
Our kids enjoyed the pools and playing on the beach also. The sunsets there are also spectacular.
We spent a super-week on Maui!

Honua Kai Unit 514 - Wonderful
Honua Kai is a great property with everything you could want in a condo with plenty of room. The unit was decorated very nice with flat screen TV’s in the family room & bedroom. The kitchen has new stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops and was fully stocked with everything you need. Washer and dryer next to the kitchen is very handy also. The bed was extremely comfortable making it hard to get up in the morning. There is also free internet service available. Another great feature is the underground parking which keeps the car from baking in the sun. Can’t say enough about the Trinh’s. We have rented vacation homes for the past four years and the Trinh’s have been the best landlords. Communication before, during and after the trip was incredible. - During our stay none of the rooms next to us appeared to be occupied as we never heard anything while in our room. Our room had both ocean and mountain views which was perfect for us. - The pools are very nice, well maintained and fully staffed to bring you anything you need from Dukes. During our stay there was always plenty of empty lounge chairs to choose from. Never felt like the pools (which there are three to choose from) were ever too crowded to sit at or for swimming. - Duke's was great. The food & service were consistently good and just a great place to hang out and have a drink while watching the sunset. - The fitness center on the property was well equipped and clean and was never crowded. The free internet access worked fine. - One of the best concierges is located at Honua Kai, Kimmy provided great recommendations on everything from restaurants, massages (The spa wasn’t open yet.) Luau to snorkeling. - There is a deli in the lobby of Honua Kai & a supermarket is within walking distance which was very convenient. I would recommend both. - This was a perfect trip for us and we will be going back to Maui and staying at Honua Kai.
Best New Resort on Kaanapali
I've been visiting the islands for almost 20 years and was excited to see a new resort built on the north end of Kaanapali beach! The resort is quiet, family friendly, and provides many of the amenities that the expensive resorts do in the south Kaanapali Beach area. The pool area, beachwalk, and grounds are beautifully landscaped with easy access to the beachfront.
The condo was beautiful with great views of the ocean and West Maui mountains. The Trinh's have equipped the condo very well and even have boogie boards, beach chairs, and other "beach Items" for you to use while in Maui. They also made sure that we had everything we needed upon arrival.
I would recommend this property to anyone interested in staying in Kaanapali. I've stayed at several other properties in the area and this is by far one of the best. Renting from the Trinh's was a great experience and would do so again for future visits.

Best condo rental experience!
My friends & I just returned from a fabulous stay
at the Trinhs' Honua Kai unit. We first stayed in
another condo in South Maui and then moved to this
condo in West Maui, and boy we were SO glad we did!
I travel quite a bit, and this was by far the best
rental experience I've had. Louis was super-
responsive about any questions or concerns I had,
both before and during our stay. They went out of
their way to make our stay comfortable -- from
providing helpful details on where to eat and
getting around, to stocking the condo with
everything we needed (coffeemaker, blender, ipod
speaker, wi-fi, boogie boards).
I'm a fastidious researcher when it comes to travel
planning, scouring all the travel websites/reviews
(including tripadvisor), and after wandering the
boardwalk to the other properties in this area, I
knew that Honua Kai was the best choice. It had
nicer, newer, and well-maintained facilities (and
not of the cheesy faux-Hawaiian kind either). And
all the staff we encountered gave us 5-star
treatment. Also, the Viking BBQ grills near the
pool were a bonus in terms of saving money on food.
This unit is stocked with more than enough good
kitchenware to prep a nice meal, bring it down to
grill, and dine elegantly at the pretty open-air
Black Rock was very close by & was great for
snorkeling (& rock diving/cliff jumping too if
you're into that!). We even got to swim with some
On the Move
Spring Break in Maui
The Trinh suite in Honua Kai has everything you could possibly need! The one I suggest you do is get good instructions how to get there. When you drive up get the bellman to help with luggage and groceries for a few bucks it's worth it. Once in the room he showed up how to work things ie they have these great doors that slide away opening up completly to the balcony. Around the common area , pool and lobby everything is clean and very lux . Plenty of lounge chairs and umbrellas . Don't expect to swim in the ocean by the Honua Kai as it gets very rough but there are some wonderful swimming beaches around Maui.
P.S. My daughter loved all the dvd's for down time and I loved that both rooms had T.V. so we could watch what we like! The Trinh's at Honua Kai is FAB

Honua Kai Resort is awesome!!
We hadn't been to Maui in 30 years, but I wanted to spend my 50th birthday in the 50th state. Not having a clue where to stay, I began my time-consuming internet search. There are so many rentals from which to choose! My criteria were: condo, oceanview, nice pool area, not over-priced, fairly new and a resort setting with services (groceries, etc) nearby. I had fears of unknowingly picking a scummy old out-dated condo that someone had made look good on the internet. When I came across Honua Kai Resort, I read that it was the only new development that had been built in over 20 years on the West side. It met all my criteria - all I had to do now was to pick a unit. I figured I would get a better deal renting direct from an owner, so I searched the VRBO (vacation rentals by owner) website, and this is where I found Unit #514 owned by Louis and Kristine Trinh. A previous renter had given a glowing report of their experience with the Trinhs. I sent an inquiry and Louis got right back to me. As soon as we talked on the phone - I became very comfortable with Louis and he was extremely kind and helpful. The unit was just exactly as it had been represented in the photos and it was spotlessly clean. Louis called when we arrived to make sure we had everything that we needed - and we did! I have no hesitation in recommending that you rent from the Trinhs - they get 5 stars for integrity, thoughtfulness and hospitality! The Honua Kai Resort is an awesome destination whether you are traveling with children, or as a couple. The extensive pools,hot tubs and waterfalls are beautiful to look at and so fun to play in...and the beach is just steps away. Duke's Restaurant (on site) is reasonably priced and delicious, and the service was fantastic. I am already looking at my calendar for next year so that I can carve out a week to head back to Honua Kai! Aloha.
Response from Louis Trinh - 03/18/2010
Thank you, Pam, for celebrating your 50th birthday with us, we truly appreciated your kindness. We're glad that you loved everything about Honua Kai and look forward to hearing from you in the future.
