Last week, we put a spotlight on affordable condos at Maui Banyan in Kihei. This week, we’re following the same thread with condos in Ma’alaea at Hono Kai. If you’re still getting familiar with the island, Ma’alaea is the most centrally located area in South Shore Maui, making it an ideal location if you want to have an easy time getting to West Maui, Central Maui, and the South Shore areas. Condos at Hono Kai are especially inexpensive, with current listings ranging in price from $285,000 to $389,900.
Among Hono Kai’s best features are the stunning unobstructed views of the ocean and West Maui Mountains. Unlike Maui Banyan, Hono Kai is located directly on the beach, rather than across the street. This makes the whale watching all the more spectacular, and even more so because Ma’alaea Bay is the location where humpbacks tend to be thickest in number when they come to Hawaii in the winter and spring months.
Speaking of the ocean, Hono Kai is located on Maui’s longest beach, where you can walk miles of powdery white sand, or just relax in the sun or go for a swim. It’s a great place to live if you enjoy an active lifestyle, especially because Ma’alaea Harbor is just a couple of minutes away by car, and you can find all kinds of ocean activities there, like fishing, scuba diving, sightseeing cruises, snorkeling, and whale watching. If you’re a marine life enthusiast, you’re sure to enjoy the Maui Ocean Center, which is also in Ma’alaea.
The Hono Kai property features manicured lawns, a swimming pool and a barbeque area. Browse through Hono Kai listings to find out more about their renovations. One of the less common features at Hono Kai is that pets up to 20lbs are allowed, which should be music to any pet owner’s ears. If you want to make some extra cash on your investment, long and short term rentals are both allowed here.
Although Hono Kai isn’t as luxurious as some Maui condos, many units have been well-maintained, are tastefully furnished and have been recently updated and/or renovated. At the aforementioned prices, you might just find the perfect condo for your needs at this complex.
