There are very slim pickings for inventory priced under $1 million at Honua Kai now that the developer has cleared out the majority of the inventory at this price point and there are not many opportunities at this price level in the resale market either. There are a number of 2 bedroom partial ocean units in the low $1 mil range that have recently gone under contract and I think that we will see this trend continue.
Two Bedroom Ocean View Best Buy
This is a video of Hokulani #349, which sits on the inner courtyard of Honua Kai. I really like this particular unit because it is just one stack back from the front of the building making it closer to the water and thus enhancing the view.
I also like the fact that it is on the inner courtyard, which makes the unit very well protected from the wind, which can be substantial at Honua Kai. This particular unit is currently priced at $1,399,000. Hokulani #349 is 1,100 sq.ft. of living area with a 235 sq.ft. covered lanai.
Please use this previous blog as a reference for the location of these units, you will find it very helpful: Honua Kai Blog with building templates and aerial photos.
Two Bedroom Partial Ocean Best Buy #1
This is a video of Konea #704, which sits on the southern exterior end of the slightly newer Konea tower at Honua Kai. This particular unit is currently under contract, but the following units are still available in the same stack and thus are the same size and have the same floor plan. The main differences are the view corridors. Please do ask me for videos on these units as I do have them on file.
- Konea #604 listed at $1,134,900
- Konea #504 listed at $1,119,900
- Konea #404 listed $1,099,900
- Konea #304 listed $1,079,900
All of the units in the 04 stack in Konea are 1,250 sq.ft. of interior living area with a 230 sq.ft. covered lanai area.
Two bedroom Best Buy on the North Side of the Konea Tower
Konea #242 is located on the north side of the Konea Tower, which looks at the two buildings at the Mahana where I have a spectacular direct oceanfront studio listed www.Mahana1202.com and the Ka’anapali Beach Club. Many buyers like this side of Konea as it is very private and quiet.
Konea #242 is 1,230 sq.ft. with a 230 sq.ft. lanai and is currently being offered at $1,019,900.
What about the resale inventory at Honua Kai?
Currently, there are 8 two bedroom/two bath resale units actively for sale at Honua Kai priced between $889,000-$1,595,000. Be sure to check out all of the resale inventory here Honua Kai Real Estate Gallery. I’d be happy to advise you on what I think are the best buys here.
I really like Konea #505, which just recently underwent a $100K price reduction and is now positioned at $1,567,000, which is about $200K lower than what the currently seller paid for the property.
Here is the full HD video of this unit: Konea 505 Video.
What’s under contract for 2 bedrooms at Honua Kai?
I don’t have exact numbers, but I would estimate that there about 10 developer 2 bedroom/2 bath units under contract or with reservation agreements (thus currently unavailable) at this time.
There are 2 two bedroom/two bath resale units at Honua Kai currently under contract. Both of the units are located on the south side of the Hokulani tower facing the Starwood Westin Resort and back towards Ka’anapali South Beach. One of the listings is our listing www.Hokulani220.com listed at $819,000, which is set to close in about 10 days and the other is Hokulani #520, the unit three floors up listed at $1,050,000.
Adding Value as a Buyer’s Agent
I have helped numerous buyers achieve the results of owning real estate at Honua Kai and am committed to your success. I know the real estate very well, understand current and historical pricing at the resort, and most importantly I work on behalf of you, not the developer.
I am also in tune with many sellers at Honua Kai who have units that they are interesting in selling but are not actively on the market. Buyers who have enlisted my services have been very pleased with my utilization of videos like those above to help them readily understand the differences between particular units at the resort.
Many units at Honua Kai are selling very quickly and recently I helped a buyer client secure one of these units shown here 4 New One Bedroom Listings at Honua Kai.
I also just recently assisted another client from Canada who read this post that I wrote in 2011, Honua Kai Resort in Ka’anapali-Best Two Bedroom Deals with a purchase of a developer bedroom partial ocean view unit at the Hokulani Tower. This is what the recent client of mine who is a very successful businessman in Canada shared with me when I asked him why he chose to work with me.
I want to thank you for everything that you have done thus far for my wife and I. I am so glad that I viewed your website and eventually contacted you. I have built my entire career on providing timely responses to my clients questions and concerns. You have definitely mastered this art.
I must admit that its a bit scary considering the purchase of real estate without being there to view things. You have gone out of your way in answering all of our questions. You have a good contact list of bankers and property managers that you were able to connect me with.
The information that I was able to obtain was exactly what I was looking for. I can’t tell you enough how important the videos were that you sent us. No request or question went unanswered. When my wife was concerned about the direction the condo was facing and what type of sunlight we could expect, you quickly went to the property and sent us a video of the location of the sunrise and sunset. In fact, you took the video from the unit across from the one we were considering to give us a better prospective.
The extra mile that you took in servicing us has meant a lot to us. That extra mile has allowed us to feel 100% confident in our decision to purchase a unit at Honua Kai. Thanks again for everything!!
