Picture a beachfront condo in a quiet resort, in a secluded area, in a central location—and one that’s affordable. Sounds dreamy for sure; and guess what, it’s real! Hono Kai B-7 is one of few that directly faces the ocean, resulting in incomparable views. You enter this second-floor unit, and BOOM—beautiful, inviting, stunning ocean views! The bedroom has a queen bed, its own view, and AC; it can be left open to the rest of the unit, or made private by closing the shoji doors. The bathroom has a tub/shower with a safety bar—the unit is comfortable for up to four guests as there is a sofa sleeper in the living room. The condo is bright with a slider door to the lanai and a mirrored wall that reflects the light and the views of the coastline down to Makena, the Pacific Ocean, and our majestic volcano, Haleakala. It is wonderful to dine al fresco on the lanai and watch what’s happening out in the bay—swimmers and surfers, paddlers and harbor boats, it’s endlessly interesting. In the winter, Humpback Whales arrive from Alaskan waters and are on view, right in front of you! Prepare meals in the full kitchen and dine inside at your table for four; it’s positioned right by the lanai so you can sigh over the gorgeous sunsets!
The oceanfront pool is inviting, the BBQ station is popular for meeting other grilling guests, and the grounds are perfectly maintained. Snag a lounge chair for some socializing or beach reading. The beach itself is quiet and lovely and perfect for sunning, swimming and a bit of snorkeling—there are often sea turtles (Honu) bobbing about in the surf out front or snoozing on the sand. Enjoy them, but remember to be respectful of their needs and keep at least 10 feet away; and do not feed them.
TV with complimentary cable, high-speed internet, free WIFI, free parking, and an on-site coin-op laundry are more of the amenities on offer. The resort has no elevators. GET# W30389256-01
