OCEANFRONT 2-LEVEL 9TH FLOOR PENTHOUSE 3 BED / 3 BATH

Kahana Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Spectacular penthouse condo on the beautiful Pacific Ocean with a lanai (deck) overlooking the sandy beach. Enjoy the magnificent sunsets and, from November to April, watch the Humpback whales, dolphins and turtles.

***The kitchen was updated in January 2012 with granite countertops and the condo received a fresh coat of paint, new draperies and fixtures throughout.***

This well-equipped oceanfront 3 bedroom/3 full bath unit includes a pull-out couch with a queen mattress. Both the master and upstairs bedrooms have king-sized beds. My condo is spacious and decorated with a tropical feel and includes all the amenities you would expect in the best-equipped properties. The main floor master bedroom is facing the ocean so you can fall asleep to the sound of the sea.

The views are spectacular--ALL PHOTOS ARE FROM MY UNIT. You can enjoy looking out at the islands of Lanai and Molokai as you relax in my beautiful condo. In the Sands of Kahana complex, there are four 8 and 9-story condominium buildings which surround the restaurant and bar, 2 swimming pools and 2 hot tubs. Additionally, there's 3 tennis courts, a huge exercise room, game room, and tropical grounds which include 8 gas grills, koi ponds with fountains, lily pads and many fish surrounded by lush tropical trees and flowers.

My large, two-level penthouse condominium is close to everything West Maui has to offer! Check out my map for suggested places to visit nearby.

Great view but dirty, hot and filled with second hand smoke

  • 1 of 5
The owner was initially very responsive and gladly answered our questions about the unit but once we booked the unit and paid in full he was non-responsive to our e-mails and phone calls until the day before checking in.

A previous review referenced smokers in the unit below and turned out to be a HUGE problem for us. Unfortunately, the residents are permanent owners who seem to NEVER LEAVE. They smoke on their lanai approximately every 45 minutes with the smoke blowing straight up into this unit. They are hostile and ready for battle. They have obviously been confronted by many who stay here because they make it clear they live there and will not stop. They smoke late into the night and early morning. Since there is NO AIR CONDITIONING (which we knew before hand but underestimated the need for it) you must keep all the doors and windows open so you don’t roast – you can’t escape it. So, 24 hours a day you will have noticeable waves of second hand smoke that will drive you off the lanai and keep you awake.

In all fairness, after looking at the VRBO listing for this unit, if you look under the "suitability" area be sure to click the "more" word and it tells you not to stay here if second hand smoke is an issue for you. The owner has obviously had lots of complaints.

As far as the unit itself, the kitchen and master bath have been updated but beyond that this unit needs to be cleaned up and repaired. The window in the downstairs bedroom where they say “the kids sleep here” is broken and tied in place with rope and string with gaping holes that howl all night long. The room is like a sauna because there is no ventilation.

There door to access the lanai from the living room has been bolted shut making access to the lanai only via the master bedroom. We had a serious ant infestation. Rather than wait for the owner to not-reply we just dealt with it. One of the living room floor tiles is broken up with sharp edges for bare feet. All of the window curtains are severely water stained. There are many spots where the paint is peeling. The carpets are stained and filthy. When we first checked in we found garbage in the waste cans, a wad of toilet paper on the bathroom floor, a used Q-Tip on a bedroom rug and a huge dead grass hopper on a closet shelf.
So, bottom line: If you don't mind a dirty, tired unit with no A/C that is constantly filled with second hand cigarette smoke then we highly recommend you stay here. The view is spectacular.

Best View and Best Value In West Maui

  • 4 of 5
I want to be very honest with my review. The reasons why you should rent this condo are the following. Steve is a great owner and gives very fast and friendly service. If you have a large group of 6-8 people then I would challenge you to find better value for location, size, view for your money. Sands of Kahana is an excellent resort and we loved the sandy beach, loved the beautiful gardens and grounds, loved the bar, restaurant and pool. Lots of room to park and staff keep everything spotless including the BBQs that were cleaned every day. The size and layout of this unit is fantastic. We were blown away with all the space, loft, kitchen and size of rooms and bathrooms. Make sure you ask Steve for the wifi information or be prepared to plug in a laptop or forget technology and just relax. Now here are the reasons you may not want to stay here. Minor but you may want to know that it is an older building, dated interior and the renovations and cleaning are not the greatest but remember what you are paying for. Yes the people below smoke. Oh well. Yes their is no A/C but plenty of fans and open windows. The bedding is quite dated but still clean. The appliances don't work the best but what do you expect for 10 year old appliances. If you can look past the handy man work needed, the dated interior, the average cleanliness, older bedding and appliances you will see in its day the best penthouse unit in West Maui with the most breathtaking view you will never get tired of staring at. We hope that they will find new cleaners, spend some money on linens, hire a contractor for repairs then this will be an amazing place to rent for anyone. Mahalo!

Week Long Stay

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay. Sun was shining, and the Turtles swam by the beach every day. It was so nice to sit on the Lanai in the morning and have your coffee. The view is beautiful any time of the day. Make sure to bring your binoculars, because from the Lanai you could see the whales in the channel jumping and making big splashes. You can also see Molokai and Lanai Islands, and the sunsets are spectacular. Nice restaurant where you can sit and watch your children in the pool. This condo is for any one, any age. Great for families as it will sleep up to 8 people. Not to may places that you can rent where you have a view such as this place. You will not be disappointed. I would stay here every time we come to Maui, Hawaii.

Wow! Breathtaking views....

  • 5 of 5
Staying in this penthouse was an excellent choice. It offers a full panoramic view for star gazing, amazing sunsets and the beautiful beach below. This is how you should see Maui!
The interior is efficiently designed to accommodate both small and large parties. Easy to keep and offers an ambience of tranquility.
Several amenities that I enjoyed....beach chairs and boogie boards, beach towels, blenders for drinks, a nice book selection to take to the pool or even play volley ball on the beach. Perfect.

Better than the pictures

  • 5 of 5
This was my second time staying at Steve's condo. The views are breathtaking and the beach is right outside. We could see whales from the lanai! We stayed in the master bedroom downstairs, but the upstairs master is gorgeous! The condo has all the amenities, with plenty of equipment to snorkel or boogey board. The kitchen is fully equipped so we stayed in for breakfast and lunch; and there are plenty of places close by to eat out as well. There's internet access so we were always in touch with the outside world when we wanted to be. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and hope to come back and stay again, a super fun time!

Highly Recommend

  • 5 of 5
Had a great time in Steve's condo. The lanai led to a beautiful view and I particularly enjoyed having the skylights. I was there for Halloween and the proximity to Lahaina was great. Plenty of places within walking distance. Went horseback riding at Ironwood Ranch and snorkeling at Napili Bay. I highly recommend these activities and this condo. Thanks Steve!
