MAUI OCEAN FRONT CONDO

Kahana Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Kahana Reef is an 88 unit condominium project built on the ocean front. The project has three buildings, each having four stories. Our unit is on the third floor (Unit #321) in the far north building. This building is closest to the ocean and adjacent to the beach, which is located down a small set of stairs. Swimming, snorkeling, surfing and wind surfing are common activities in the ocean immediately in front of the project. Unlike other projects, the buildings are all concrete, including interior walls, which provide soundproofing from adjacent units.

The unit is next to the north end of the project in Building #3, away from the noise of the swimming pool and laundry, and is accessed by either a covered staircase or elevator. The project has a solar-heated swimming pool (ocean front by Building #1) , BBQs, picnic bench, and a lawn and furniture for sunbathing. There is also a coin-operated common area laundry (ground floor in front of Building #2).

The unit contains 611 square feet and was remodeled in 2008, 2009 & 2012. We continue to upgrade the unit so as to have all of the conveniences of home. This is our second home so we keep it in good condition. There is a new (2012) tile floor in the entry hall, bathroom, kitchen and lanai. The living room and bedroom are carpeted (new 2012). The lanai is tiled with a slate border and has a bar top height table and two chairs. This is a great place for a relaxing meal or evening drnk....and the best place to be when the sun sets. The lanai also has a lounge chair and small side table. The unit is equipped with a full sized refrigerator with ice maker, range oven, microwave, dishwasher, garbage disposal, toaster, blender, rice cooker, crockpot and all of the necessities for a comfortable stay. We have free high-speed cable and wireless internet, free local and long distance telephone service, flat screen TVs, Blu Ray with Netflix, DVD, VCR, Stereo Receiver with Ipad, Iphone connection and Ipad, Iphone dock clock radio. We also have a hotel safe. There are LED nightlights and emergency lighting. The unit is as 'green' as it gets with Energy Star appliances, water saver toilet, LED lights throughout and a switched water-heater. There is 10 minute video showing project, unit and views on YouTube/watch?v=zcTPIV7jowM or view a slide show on the Kahana Reef's web page at kahanareefaoao. Note, the video was taken prior to the 2012 remodel and upgrades. There are CDs and DVDs for all ages. Complete instructions and many recommendations for things to do and see, and where to dine are provided.

Vacation enthusiasts. We enjoy relaxing by ocean watching the whales and/or sunsets from the Lanai. We also enjoy upgrading the unit every time we stay here.

Jan purchased this condo in 2007

We looked for two years on three islands before finding our unit. It is literally on the water. The sound of the waves can be heard throughout the unit. The cool trade winds cool the unit so there is no need for air conditioning. The temperature is 5 to 10 degrees cooler than Lahaina. It is also very quiet and peaceful here. There is easy access from the parking area via stairs or elevator.

The outstanding ocean view, beautiful sunsets, the condition of the unit and the relaxing atmosphere are what most of our guests tell us are the best features of our unit. Guests also comment on how well equipped the unit is, having everything you could expect and more from a vacation rental. We are also told that our pride of ownership is evident from how well kept the unit is as well as how we have provided many extras that other vacation rentals do not provide. Many of our guests have become repeat visitors year after year, and some several times a year. You can walk to the many restaurants that are nearby and dozens more within a 10 minute drive. Kaanapali Beach and Whalers Village with its shopping, hotels restaurants and whale museum are a 5 minute drive away. Downtown Lahaina is 10 minutes away. There are numerous golf courses within 5 to 10 minutes, including the courses in Kapalua and Kaanapali.

WHAT YOU SEE IS WHAT YOU GET

  • 5 of 5
First thing walking in the door we could see that the views shown were the actual views we had!! You can never tell because sometimes people angle photos just right to look like you are right on the water, well we were right on the water. Absolutely breath taking! Our unit was also just as it claims. Super clean, modern and every amenity. Parking was always so easy right out front. Perfect location. Grocery store just down the road, gas station just around the corner and a restaurant right across the street which was great because we got in later than we thought. But please don't get the impression that this is located in a business area. Its located in a very quiet residential area. Nice small beach within steps of our condo with a kitesurfer right out front, someone fishing, and a large sea turtle up on shore. The pool is small and didn't seem to be for kids playing games, etc., so we just went to the beach. Jan was really easy to work with and seemed to really care that all went well and we were happy. I also LOVED the fact that we used the grass mats, boogie board, chairs and snorkel gear that were in the condo. That saved some money right there. Really enjoyed staying there.

For four years we have stayed in this unit and it has always been a great place to stay. It has all the amenities, it is kept in great condition, and the view is fantastic! It is right on the ocean and there are views of the islands plus there are numerous whale and sea turtle sightings. It is paradise!

SEVENTEEN DAYS IN PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I have stayed at Kahana Reef several times. During our last visit we met Jan & Diane, the owners. Sure glad we did. This is by far one of the best units we have seen on the property. The location on the water is superb and the condo is furnished as well as home or better; enough electronics to launch someone to the moon. The new kitchen & bath are as up to date as one can get anywhere. From the lanai on the west to the bedroom on the east - very well furnished paradise. Jan called the second day to be sure everything was OK, left his phone numbers in case we had any questions or problems and asked again if everything was OK when we left. Pool was great and grounds and unit well kept, manager on duty exceptional and view of the ocean & sunsets superb. We'll be back if we can as soon as we can. The listing& photos supplied by the owners were very accurate. Restaurants in the area are to numerous to mention as well as prices and quality. Take your choice and you can stay busy with varied activities for young & old every day.

PEACE AND RELAXATION IN A NATURAL NON-COMMERCIAL SETTING

  • 5 of 5
My son persuaded my wife and me to accompany him to Maui on the first leg of his travel adventure to Australia, Singapore and Taiwan. Prior to this I had no intention to visit Hawaii.

On arrival close to midnight, I found a very comfortable setting like a friend's home. The longer I stayed the more I realized that the owner had an eye for detail. As a forensic accountant, I am trained to have an eye for detail. The owner, Jan appears to a person that enjoys the process of home improvement.

For example, there is a safety deposit box, double shower, with vanity mirror. Nothing cheap here - granite wash basins in the washroom and in the kitchen. I discovered too late an excellent travel guide on Maui by Andrew Doughty called Maui Revealed. There are CDS or DVDS on Maui, snorkel and fins under the bed as well as life jackets. Even a cooler to keep your drinks cold, every conceivable kitchen utensil including coffee grinder as I wanted to try the Kona brand. Stop at Costco near the airport to stock up on groceries.

The owner is also a tech junkie - Netflix available on Blue Ray, chargers fro your Iphones, connections for your IPAD and Lap Top as well as wifi - a lifesaver.

The complex are owned by private owners with a property manager. It's very quiet, no kids while I was there. There are lawn chairs, barbecue areas and a swimming pool.

Most important, you are literally situated on the beach. You are greeted by the sound of pounding waves.

Very Impressive. I appreciated the place even more when we drove to Black Rock right where the Sheraton Resort Hotel is situated. Here you feel the commercial atmosphere -which is very fake to me.

We stayed from Wednesday May 1st to 4th. I am writing this on my last evening. We went to watch the sunrise at Haleakala and got caught in a traffic jam caused by an accident on the way back. Boy did I appreciate the peace and relax atmosphere even more.

Jan you thought of everything, my hats off to you.

Note: It takes about an hour to drive from the airport. Try to arrive during daylight. You will need to rent a car.

Review from Greg Hung

I was looking for a comfortable and modern condo in Maui on the waterfront. We arrived late at night and the next morning it was clear that the Lanai with the gorgeous view of the ocean, sunset, and the island was the attraction for me. Jan did a great job stocking the apartment with everything needed and the property is not crowded. Great stay

WONDERFUL CONDO!

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from Maui (first trip to Hawaii), and this condo was a wonderful place to call home for our two week stay. The condo was beautiful! Very clean, very nicely decorated with good quality fixtures and furnishings from solid surface countertops to a new walk-in shower, fully stocked and well organized kitchen, solid cabinetry. Loved being right on the ocean and the sound of the waves crashing against the sea wall could be heard throughout the unit ~ always had the slider open so we could hear the ocean. From the lanai we watched sea turtles right by the sea wall, and from day one of our vacation we could enjoy watching the whales. Loved having breakfast on the lanai and watching these beautiful creatures! There was a large computer monitor in the condo available so we could hook up our notebook and have a bigger screen, which was good for me as I do medical billing and could do that easier while I was away. The CA King sized bed was wonderful!! I have a bad neck and hip and can't seem to stay anywhere without being in pain. I had NO trouble; the bed was so comfortable. My husband found this piece of paradise for our first trip to Maui, and I can't imagine staying anywhere else when we return. The condo owner was very helpful from reserving the unit to the end of our vacation, and he provides information in the unit of where to eat, good places for shopping and even where to get souvenirs inexpensively! We felt right at home and were sad to leave. LOVED it and look forward to returning hopefully in the not too distant future!
