Maui (Last updated on: August 28, 2017)

Come take a vacation! Why don’t we go to…oh, how about Maui?

Nola and I own an oceanfront condo in west Maui at Honokeana Cove, a secluded bay in the Napili area, just south of Kapalua. There’s snorkeling with tropical fish and giant sea turtles; surfing and paddle boarding; and a heated pool for lounging and watching the whales. The condo has a great on-site staff who rent it to vacationers when we the owners are not visiting.

For many vacationers, Art and Nola included, Maui is the “just right” Hawaiian island. It’s not as heavily developed and traffic-ridden as Honolulu and Oahu, and it’s not primitive like Molokai and Lanai. The Big Island (Hawaii) and Kauai have their charms, but nothing like the variety of Maui.

Here are some sources to help you think about Hawaii as a vacation destination:
– For frank talk about vacationing in Hawaii and the pros and cons of condo versus hotel, check out our condo’s FAQ page.
– If you’re interested in Hawaiian traditions and culture, you’ll find a set of “feature stories” at our condo website
– If you’d like to see our unit, it’s described in the condo website as well as in its rental listing at

We naturally think our condo is the “greatest” one in this small (38-unit) property. Our regular guests seem to agree, since we are often booked up. However, we have no hesitation about recommending the other units at Honokeana Cove for your consideration: they are described on the rental website

If you’re thinking about Maui, we also have an “insiders guide” with reviews of things to do on the island, in GoGoBot’s free-form unstructured style:


Maui is the most varied and visitor-friendly of all the Hawaiian islands – a great spot for your next vacation!
