By Staff | Feb 17, 2011

Kick back and enjoy Honua Kai in its newest tower, Konea #351.

“Ask for the Best of the Best” — James M. Harris Inc., Broker, and Mischelle M. Lawrence, R(S), who are multimillion dollar producers.

Maui is also the Best of the Best. For the unprecedented 16th time, Maui captured “Best Island in the World” honors in the 23rd annual Conde Nast Traveler readers’ choice award Poll. To Jim Harris and Mischelle Lawrence, that is not surprising. Residents of Maui for over 30 years and realtors for nearly that long, they know that Maui offers the best beaches, the best golf, the best hiking, the best lifestyle, the best food, the best people and some of the best real estate available in the world. There is a lot to be said for being able to own a slice of tropical paradise in America. That is the best of all the rest.

Starting with: ocean/beach front, brand new is Honua Kai. This property is a very large floor plan that includes three bedrooms with three full baths. This is the best oceanfront/beach front property on West Maui! Desirable southern exposure offers great light throughout this fine apartment.
