Honua Kai Studio Sold and Honua Kai Studio Market Update

I want to congratulate Jeff and Tiffany West on their recent closing of Hokulani #223, the most recent Honua Kai studio sale at the renowned Honua Kai Resort and Spa. I was able to help the Wests secure what is arguably one of the very best deals in Honua Kai in quite some time closing this fine property for $700,000. To help substantiate this, Hokulani #337 (one floor up and the other side of the studio stacks) closed for $825,000 in the spring of this year.

Because we run our Kaanapali Beachfront Portfolio through Hawaii Life Vacations, we have hit the ground running with Hokulani #223 and it is now available for rent, Hokulani #223 rental site here.

Insights from Honua Kai Buyers Jeff and Tiffany

“After falling in love with the island on our honeymoon almost 20 years ago we decided that it was finally the right time for us to purchase our own piece of paradise on Maui. During the course of our research, we were introduced to Jeremy via his blog. We found his insights and knowledge on the subject to be incredibly valuable so we reached out to him with the hopes he would be able to help us on our journey.

Purchasing property in a state where you don’t live is not easy, but Jeremy’s guidance enabled us to able to navigate the process with ease. Not only did he serve as a powerful and effective advocate for us, he provided insight and understanding into a complex process. This allowed us to feel confident and comfortable that everything was on track. From connecting us with lenders to providing advocacy and support during escrow, Jeremy was tireless in his commitment to helping us realize our dream of owning property on Maui.

It is because of his commitment and his knowledge of all things ‘vacation-rental’ that we have chosen to continue our relationship with Jeremy by selecting him to be our on-island property manager. We are confident that our unit is in good hands and will be treated as if it belonged Jeremy himself. We can’t thank him enough for everything he has done, and look forward to continuing our relationship as we move from buyer to owner.”
