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.

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
Why Jan chose Kahana
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.
What makes this condo unique
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.
