Vacation in Sunny West Maui in Our Honokawai/Kahana Vacation Rentals
Enjoy the easy breezy lifestyle of Maui from your Honokawai/Kahana vacation rental. These spacious condos provide a welcoming place from which to enjoy a home base while enjoying the many beaches and activities of the island. The vast majority of these properties are situated along the ocean, putting the beach right in your backyard. With shopping, dining, and activities nearby, you can spend more time soaking up the sun and less time in the car heading to your next destination. Relax into a life of ease in West Maui, where more sunny days occur than anywhere else on the island!
Our Honokawai/Kahana vacation rentals offer an open concept floorplan so you and your loved ones or friends can easily spend time together. From the living room, lounge on comfortable island style furniture while watching a movie on the flatscreen TV in the evening. During daylight hours, you’ll enjoy tropical sunlight streaming through the glass doors that lead out to the private lanai. This covered, furnished area offers yet another option for relaxing when you’re not out adventuring. Finish up a chapter in your latest read during the cool of the morning with a cup of coffee in hand from the lanai as the island slowly begins to come to life. Evenings on the lanai are also spectacular, with vibrant colors of sunset streaking the sky.
Save on the budget or simply appreciate the convenience of enjoying some meals in from your well-equipped Maui vacation rental. These condos boast complete kitchens with full-sized appliances, as well as the cookware you’ll need to craft your favorite meals. Head to the farmer’s market just a few blocks away for fresh produce to be included. While you’ll also encounter an array of restaurants nearby, snacks and meals from your full private kitchen certainly add a layer of convenience. Most condos offer a dining area within the great room as well as an additional table or chairs out on the lanai.
Wind down in the evening from the comfort of your private bedroom. Offering much more privacy and square footage than a hotel room, our one-bedroom Honokawai vacation rentals offer a sleeping area separate from the great room, allowing sleep to come easy even when others want to stay up later. In the bedroom, you’ll find a comfortable, spacious bed and high-quality linens.
Best Maui Activities
You’ll find options for enjoying yourself right on the grounds of your Maui vacation rental. Most of our Honokawai/Kahana vacation rentals are situated on properties that offer a variety of amenities. Soak up the sun alongside the sparkling swimming pool, enjoy a backyard cookout from the barbecue area, and ease away any remaining tension from the soothing waters of the hot tub. You’ll also find a white sandy beach right in the backyard of many of these properties, putting water activities such as swimming, boogie boarding, stand-up paddle boarding, and surfing within easy reach.
Maui’s best beaches not only offer a wide variety of water sports options, but also opportunities for wildlife viewing. Catch sight of dolphins and whales playing offshore, or a glimpse of a green sea turtle as it pops its head out of the water. Heading beneath the surface with snorkeling equipment also opens up a whole other world for experiencing the majestic wildlife that calls this area home.
Away from the shoreline, you’ll find hiking, ATV tours, horseback riding, ziplining, shopping, and dining options that will quickly fill the itinerary!
Exploring Honokowai Kahana
The Napili-Honokowai and Kahana areas of West Maui are a welcome slice of paradise. There are many white sand beaches and island activities located in the area, providing the perfect mix of serene island life and fun-filled adventures.
Start your Wednesday or Saturday morning by heading down to the Napili Farmers Market, where you will be greeted with a wide range of fresh, locally harvested produce. Products vary with the season, reflecting the commitment to providing only freshly grown local products. In addition to produce, the Napili Farmers Market also offers a variety of locally made specialty foods as well as handcrafted items that are unique to the island. This is a great place to enjoy a light meal, pick up a snack for later, and even to find unique gift items to bring back home to friends and family.
Explore the island from a different vantage point with a horseback riding excursion at Napili’s Ironwood Ranch. Booking a horseback riding excursion is a great way to experience the majesty of the island’s interior, where mountains, rain forests, valleys, and farmland work together to create a spectacular scenery that is drastically different from the white sand beaches you will find along the oceanfront. This family-friendly activity is a great way to experience another side of island life!
There are several beaches in the Napili-Honokowai and Kahana areas that are well worth a visit. In fact, Maui’s west coast is known for its spectacular white sand coastline, putting many of Maui’s best beaches within easy reach. A few of the popular beaches within this area include Kahana Beach, Honokowai Beach Park, and Napili Bay, among others. When the ocean is calm, Kahana Beach provides a spectacular setting for swimming and snorkeling. This sandy crescent beach is backed by swaying palms and an upscale resort community, and the sandy bottom makes it a pleasant place to take a dip. Families traveling with small children will enjoy the calm waters at Honokowai Beach Park, where a reef creates a calm pool perfect for small children to splash and play. Several large shade trees, BBQ areas, picnic tables, and a playground also make this a great spot for a beach picnic. The pristine turquoise waters of Napili Bay are enough to earn its way onto any Maui advertisement. An outer reef here protects the bay from larger waves, making it ideal for swimming and snorkeling and resulting in that perfect aqua hue.
