The following driving directions assume that you picked up your rental car from one of the major car rental agencies at Kahului Airport. Alamo, Avis, Budget, Enterprise, Hertz, National are all located just north of Highway HI-380, which is called Lanui Circle at the airport, Keolani Place as you leave the airport to the west, and then becomes Dairy Road as it enters downtown Kahului.
Ask the car rental counter for one of their map books, and for directions to get on Highway HI-380 / Dairy Road going west toward Lahaina.
Continue on HI-380 approximately 6.7 miles westbound, past the shopping area and past the golf courses west of the city. You will arrive at a T intersection with a traffic light.
Turn left at the T onto Highway HI-30, also called Honoapiilani Highway. You will go 24.3 miles on this highway. You will go straight through some traffic lights and stay on the highway as it bends around to the right, heading west. For your information, HI-30 is the main highway that starts out southbound and circles the West Maui mountains in a clockwise direction, eventually passing downtown Lahaina. The highway’s path is shown on the map below, which is courtesy of Google Maps.
Just past Lahaina, you will pass the Safeway supermarket on your left, which is one of the few 24-hour markets on Maui. Continue on the highway to Napili, which is a northern suburb of Lahaina.
You will continue on the highway up a hill and you will see the Napili Plaza shopping center on your left just before the traffic light. On the right, you will see a marker for Mile 29 on the highway. At the light, turn left on Napilihau Road, toward the ocean. Proceed 0.3 miles until you come to a stop sign at a T.
Turn right at the T on Lower Honoapiilani Road and proceed 0.3 miles. You will pass only one street on the left, which is Papaua Place. Just after that, the road bends to the left and the Honokeana Cove driveway is right there on your left. Look for the wood Honokeana Cove sign with white lettering and a circular logo. At night the sign is lit and there are also tiki-style lamps on either side of the driveway.
You may park in any unmarked space.
