As developer inventory at the Honua Kai Resort and Spa in Ka'anapali, Maui continues to dissipate I want to highlight the five remaining one bedroom plus den (there are no bedroom developer units for sale) units still available for sale at the resort. This particular floor plan is a very good use of space as the den is located in a little nook right in between the living room and kitchen areas (all of the units at Honua Kai have the "open" kitchen and living area that many buyers find so attractive). The additional den area functions as an informal bedroom as there is a pull-out sofa, a clothes dresser with a flat screen TV, and a small closet. This additional room makes it fairly comfortable to sleep 6 adults in this unit as opposed to 4 in the one bedroom units.
Konea One Bedroom Plus Den Units Available For Sale
All of the remaining units for this floor plan are located at the Konea or North Tower; all in the Hokulani, or South Tower, have been sold out. Please refer to the following blog to help orient yourself with the locations of the building in proximity to the ocean in addition to the floorplates for the buildings: Honua Kai Resort Location Blog.

Which Honua Kai Unit is Right For Me?
Generally, this question is best handled by means of a personal email or phone call (my contact info below), but since I like to provide value to these blogs here are some tidbits. Konea 240 and 340 are both located on the northern end of the Konea tower.
Due to the movement of the sun in relation to the resort, these units are going to remain in the shade the vast majority of the day. The only time that they will get much light is in the late afternoon and when the sun is setting in between Lanai (southern direction) and Molokai (northern direction).
Buyers also like this side of the building as it has a real sense of privacy and solitude. There is a beach park located between Honua Kai and the adjoining resort of the Mahana at Ka'anapali www.Mahana1202.com, but there are very few locals that actually park here and use the beach.

Konea 306, 512, and 612 are all located on the "sunny" side of Konea (the photo above is taken from this direction) where the units will get very nice morning sun and sun throughout the majority of the day albeit the afternoon soon will be much more minimal because of the orientation of the buildings. This side of the building faces the Hokulani tower and has very nice views of the West Maui Mountains in addition to some slim ocean views from these units.
Sample Video Tour of a One Bedroom Plus Den Unit
This is a video of Konea #440, which is currently under contract, but the point of the video is to give you a feel for the floor plan - and in the instance of Konea #240 and #340 - a sense for the location within the resort.

What About the Resale Market at Honua Kai?
There are currently 2 one bedroom plus den resale units for sale at Honua Kai. Both of these units are located on the north side of the Hokulani tower, which means that they are going to be in the shade until the afternoon time.
Many people with kids like the ground floor locations and what is also really nice is the 14 ft. ceilings on these ground floor units. Others will gravitate to the enhanced ocean view from one floor up at #242, the choice is yours to make.
