Our Weekend at Honua Kai Konea 402
Two weekends ago, we stayed in Unit 402 in the Konea Building at Honua Kai. PowerPlay Destination Properties, the listing brokerage for the unit, offered us an opportunity to give this condo a test drive so to speak. This post shows some of the pictures from our stay and highlights some of the amenities of both Konea 402 and the Honua Kai resort.
Billy and his wife had the condo on Friday night. I loaded up the family and headed over on Saturday. Realistically, Billy and I could have been there with both of our families and still been very comfortable. Konea 402 is a three bedroom, three bath condominium with 2,230 square feet of living space. There is an additional 600 square feet of lanai.
When buyers are looking at condos on Maui, good views are a criteria that often tops the list. The photo below shows the view looking out from the lanai of Konea 402. If you look a little further to the South you can see all of the neighboring island of Lanai. If you look a little to the North, you can see Molokai. The side lanai has nice views of the West Maui Mountains.
Buyers on Maui also tend to value fully updated condos. As some of Maui’s newest construction, Honua Kai definitely fits the bill. The condo is well built and incorporates high end materials, amenities and appliances. NanaWalls in the living room and dining room open up to the lanai. There is travertine flooring throughout. The home includes a tasteful furniture package put together by designer Natasha Plitt.
The kitchen is worthy of its own discussion. This unit has an upgraded Viking appliance package. Granite counters and quality cabinetry are also great amenities. There is plenty of room and lots of counter space for preparing a big meal for friends and family. There is also a nice outdoor kitchen space with a gas grill right on the lanai if you want to barbecue.
While there is a more formal dining room with great views, we took full advantage of dining on the lanai. I was surprised my daughter Kiana was willing to take a break from the views to look at the camera.
Two of the three bedrooms in the condo can be considered to be master suites. There are three full bathrooms in the condo. The bathrooms off the two master suites are spacious and opulent. Both of the master bathrooms features oversized framed glass showers and tubs. My daughter Kiana particularly enjoyed bath time in the one master bathroom tub.
With the amenities and views from Konea 402, it would be easy to never step foot outside. Then again, you would we be selling yourself short by not taking advantage of the facilities around Honua Kai. There are three separate pool areas. Kiana really enjoyed splashing in the shallow area of the children’s pool.
In addition to the pools, we enjoyed Duke’s Restaurant for lunch. They have a great open air dining facility close to the pools and looking over the beach. We also shopped at the Aina Gourmet Market over in the Hoku Lani tower for coffee, tea and some other edibles. We wish we would have had more time to experience Honua Kai’s other facilities like the Ho’ola Spa and the Fitness Center.
When it comes to Maui Real Estate, the best amenities are the natural ones. Honua Kai is situated on the golden sand of Airport Beach. The beach is known for good swimming and snorkeling. My wife, daughter and I had a great beach walk all the way from Honua Kai to the North End of Black Rock. We even saw a pod of spinner dolphins playing about 100 yards offshore. The nice thing about this stretch of beach is that it is generally less crowded than Ka’anapali Beach.
Honua Kai Konea 402 offers the complete package for buyers looking for a luxury beachfront condo on Maui. The views, amenities and setting are all superior. Konea 402 is offered for sale via PowerPlay Destination Properties for $3,913,000. At this time, the developer is offering to prepay the first 36 months of association fees. This calculates to a savings of $110,981. The Maui Real Estate Team may represent interested parties as their buyer’s representative.
