Book Our Villa
We Offer The Lowest 1-bedroom Ocean View Rates – Anywhere!
We own a second floor unit at the Honua Kai Resort & Spa – it’s a 1-bedroom villa and just gorgeous. Our unit has an ocean view and you can watch the Maui sun setting in the Pacific ocean right from our Lanai (balcony). The Honua Kai Resort & Spa is smoke free resort in compliance with Hawaiian smoking laws.
I’m going to be honest with you folks – there is an inactive construction site next to our villa (Westin Hotel). There has been NO construction for the past 2 years and Westin recently planted grass for even longer term inactivity. So our beautiful villa is therefore permanently on sale for value minded folks who would rather spend the saved money on airline tickets, whale watching, road trips to Hana, fine restaurants, etc, instead of a green view. I challenge you to find a lower published rate anywhere!!!
Don’t get me wrong, you can see the ocean from our lanai and for half the day you can’t see the construction since the sun has set. So if you want to stay at the hottest new 5-star resort on Maui at the cheapest rates our villa is for you. You get the resort facilities just like the other folks who paid megabucks more, same swimming pools, work out rooms, underground parking, etc.
We have 10 years of renting experience – we have rented our timeshares, and condos, for over a decade now and have NEVER had a problem. Our expertise will make your rental worry and hassle free; we know how to provide the service to make your stay at the Honua Kai memorable. You are making this reservation direct with the owners and all the middleman’s profit becomes yours! We personally care about your stay with us.
Save 50% to 60% over Orbitz and other large travel agencies – book direct with the owner and you save the money that would normally got to Orbitz; see the great discounts in the table below.

Our “Rack Rates”
Our 1-bedroom villa has 4 competitive rental rates during the year:
Firesale price $179/nt
5-night minimum stay required except for Holiday Rates – they require a 7-night minimum stay; contact us for shorter stay reservations. Rates are subject to change without notice. Once you get our rate quote the rates, and availability, are valid for 24-hours. A $155 cleaning fee is charged based on single check-out cleaning; optional daily maid service is available at $40 per day. Washer/dryer is available in the villa for your convenience. Hawaiian taxes 13.42% are added to the final rent. <14 days means any open days starting from today and for the next 14 days that are not rented – you get for $179/night.
How can we offer these crazy prices? Simple, to keep our rates this low we require all monies paid up front with no refunds! All my competition must account for renters backing out and returning deposit monies – they have to jack up their normal rates to account for this. My suggestion is for you to take out travel insurance and insure your entire vacation, our rent, your airline tickets, pre-purchased activities. This insurance costs 8% to 10% of the vacation expense.
The money you save from me will pay the insurance premium for the insurance firms I recommend and will return 80% – 100% of your money for ANY reason you cancel – even if it’s “We don’t feel like going on vacation”. Click this link for more information about travel insurance.
Discounts – you bet!
ALL my rates are discounted below other 1-bedroom and studio Honua Kai villas – nobody offers a 1 bedroom with a partial ocean view for less!
14 days before check-in has the rate dropping to $179 per night! The money you save staying at our villa will ease the higher airline fares! So check our calendar often for great “get-a-way” specials. The cleaning fee is still charged as are the Hawaiian taxes. “Firesale Discounts” require all monies be paid up front and are non-refundable. The Firesale Discount is also used to “fill” holes of 4 days or less in our availability calendar and may be done months in advance. Many times reservations don’t “butt up” against the next reservation and “holes” are left that are hard to find the normal 5 or 7 day minimum reservation – that’s when the Firesale Discount is used.
We charge a $155 cleaning fee per reservation and with the 4.166% tax is $140.63; all this money goes to the cleaning company that services our villa – we make no money with this charge. This includes a pre-cleaning and a post-cleaning of the villa. Daily maid service is NOT included in our rates. Those villas that offer “daily maid service” (Really just “Tidy Service”) just have a maid drop by, inconvenience you, make the bed, and replace towels. That’s it – 5 minutes and they’re out of the villa. The daily $25 “Resort fee” covers 5 minutes of maid service per day and dry towels.
We can provide a much better maid service for about $40 per cleaning and this is a real cleaning of your villa.
When you check into the Honua Kai, the front desk will charge $10 per day for self-parking in the underground garage, $15 per day for valet parking, plus tax. I can’t collect that fee and neither can anyone else but the Honua Kai’s front desk when you check-in.
Payment is through PayPal; the largest bank in the world with 168 million members. If you don’t have an account it will take about one minute to set one up. You can use a credit card to make your payment in PayPal. We have two payment methods:
For about 8% to 10% of the total price of your vacation, including airfare, villa rental, pre-paid activities like lift tickets, etc., you can totally insure your vacation. Additionally you can cancel for ANY reason, heck you don’t even need a reason, just cancel, and get ALL your money back. Click here to learn more.
Don’t believe I have the lowest 1-bedroom ocean view rates in the world? Let’s do a comparison of my rack rate versus the best discounted rates from the major travel companies – prove for yourself my claims:
Booking a 7 day stay July 10 – 17, 2010 (Regular Rate) in a 1 bedroom partial ocean view at the Honua Kai Resort & Spa for a family of 4 (Analysis done Dec 2009 rates are subject to change):
If you book 6 months ahead of time here is what you save by booking my villa:
The savings from the above would easily pay for airline tickets for 2 to 4 people.
Note: the large travel agencies love to hide the $25/day Resort Fee that they MUST charge (we don’t). Some of them footnote and tell you that the front desk collects it so they leave it out of their rates – but it is NOT optional and is a sneaky hidden charge. I don’t play those games and we don’t have that $25 Resort Fee.
I hope I’ve shown you that renting from me can save you a lot of money – why not fill out the form above and get a price quote?

Overall Reservation Process
It’s just as easy as any resort on Maui.
What makes our reservation process so simple and super safe for you is the 6-digit keycode that I send you. The keycode is only good starting at 4 PM on the day of your check-in and expires at 11 AM on the day of your check-out. During that time you have complete access to our villa but the keycode expires after 11 AM on the last day of your reservation. Each guest reservation gets a unique keycode that is never issued again.
No need to track someone down and get a room key; you already have the keycode as soon as you make the reservation. If someone in your party is arriving before or after you simply tell them the keycode and they can get into the villa.
Once you open the door you can then reprogram it to any simple number that you and your family can easily remember. It’s no harder than programming the safe in the villa. You can make this keycode the same as the safe’s keycode in the villa if you wish.
You can’t lose your keycard nor demagnetize it by putting it near your cell phone. If the maids need in their keycodes only work from 8 AM to 5 PM; same with any maintenance men who might need in during your stay. When you go swimming you don’t have to worry about losing your keycard or keys.
If there should be an emergency the a master key can be brought over from the management company.
How does the “Firesale Rates” work – I’m not sure
Do we check-in with the front desk when we arrive?
Yes, the front desk must know who is roaming the halls of the resort. When you check in they will ask you if you have a car and if so the parking fee is $10/day or $15/day for valet parking. You will be given a tag which goes on the rearview mirror of your car. The front desk of the Honua Kai is manned 24/7.
Can the bellman help us with our luggage?
I don’t have a PayPal account – what do I do?
Ok, I want the discounts but what happens if our travel plans change?
If our plane is late and we get to the Honua Kai at 2 AM – how do we get into our villa?
What is the $25 “Resort Fee” that so many other places charge per day?
That $25/day is for pool towels, Wi-FI, and the ability to charge things to your room. This fee covers only guests 1 and 2, guest 3 would be an additional $25/day and the same for guest 4. So a family of 4 would have to pay $75 per day extra for towels and for tidy maid service which had the maid spending 5-minutes in the villa making the bed (not changing it) and replacing towels.
We just provide pool towels in our villa and after swimming just throw them in the dryer or wash them if you wish. You save $525 per week by doing that. So pay yourself $525 per week and simply make the bed in the morning and throw the wet towels in the Bosch dryer and spend that money at fine restaurants and activities around Maui.
How does maid service work with our rental?
Can we use the Ki-Ki (Hawaiian for kids) Club?
How about room service at the Honua Kai?
