Overview

Kahana Condo Rental Photos and Description

Aloha nui loa! We invite you to take off your shoes and indulge yourself in fine island living Maui style – Maui no ka'oi. The beauty and majesty of the great blue Pacific await your arrival at our ocean front 'Hale'. Your cozy custom remodeled and decorated Kahana Reef condo offers breathtaking views from the open concept living-dining room area and from the lanai. From the lanai, you will see the island of Molokai which sits majestically across the channel.

Beautifully furnished with island-tropical inspired decor, you will be embraced in the spirit of aloha with custom faux-finishing complimented by neutral carpet and bright punches of island color, cool tiled floors, granite counters and a modern kitchen that will impress even the pampered chef. Your condo features one luxurious and spacious bedroom and one spacious bathroom highlighting a travertine marble tiled shower and granite topped counters.

The breaking dawn from our lanai is absolutely breathtaking and provides the perfect location for enjoying a cup of delicious Kona coffee, as Maui's humpback whales breach in the distance. This is also a great space for your afternoon 'pau hana' - pronounced pow-honna - Hawaiian for 'happy hour'.

The Kahana Reef is conveniently located close to an abundance of activities. Walkers and joggers enjoy strolling along shady Lower Honoapiilani Rd. Snorkeling is great just a few steps down from our sea wall that backs our ocean front unit. Paddleboard, kayak or swim at the nearby secluded pristine sand beach that is literally a few steps from your condo. A short 5 minute drive south, down the Honoapiilani Highway, you will find Ka'anapali's Whaler Village which features shopping and dining at Hula Grill, and of course world famous Ka'anapali Beach and Black Rock. Also along the way, you will find moped rentals, water sport rentals, and even a Farmers Market. Or, if your heart desires, you may venture about 5 minutes north towards Kapalua to play a round of golf, indulge in a day of pampering at the Ritz-Carlton, or dine at the Plantation House restaurant. Here is where you will find DT Fleming Beach, and just a short ways further north, Honolua Bay which is considered one of the best snorkeling destinations on the island.

Your condo offers a WiFi internet service hot-spot and cable TV for your leisure. You may also enjoy casually lounging with a good book around our ocean front glistening swimming pool which affords great whale watching, as well as a refreshing dip. Gas grills are available to use, for those evenings you want to dine in on the lanai.

The reefs of Maui offer a fantastic undersea world full of color and wildlife. ‘Ne honu’, Hawaiian for 'green sea turtle' will swim with you, just be sure to respect their habitat and space. Likewise, you might also see a Humuhumunukunukuapuaa – Hawaii's beautiful state fish - swimming nearby. Visit the local dive shop to book an excursion if snorkeling from a boat is more to your liking. Maui is loaded with fun for all ages that you will discover as you venture about the island. Whatever it is that your heart desires to do - hike the trails and find the ancient petroglyphs, bike down Haleakala, or brave the surf of the North Shore if you dare - you can have peace of mind that you will return at the end of each day to the tranquility and comfort of your condo.

We sincerely thank you for choosing our “Hale” at the Kahana Reef and we look forward to hearing all about your magical island experience, and of course, your personal reason for saying and believing 'Maui no ka'oi'.

Mahalo!

About Gene Trasti

Gene and I are from the Sacramento area. While looking for property to purchase on Maui, we came across Kahana Reef number 209 and fell instantly in love. It had everything we were looking for-and more. Truly Oceanfront with spectacular views and a perfect location.

One of our favorite things to do at the end of a busy,or not so busy day, is to sit on our Lanai and watch the magnificent sunsets with a glass of our favorite wine.

When its time to return home we find our batteries completely rejuvenated and eagerly awaiting our next trip to our home on this magical isle.

Gene Trasti purchased this condo in 2000

Why Gene Trasti chose Kahana

We fell in love with this property. Because of it being oceanfront and its fantastic location-close to shopping, golfing and all the other activities that Maui is famous for.

What makes this condo unique

We wanted our condo to be a 'home away from home,' so it has been completely remodeled with many upgrades and beautifully decorated.

Great experience

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay in this condo. The view is second to none. Unlike other locations on Maui, from the balcony of this condo you see only the sea and the well-maintained grounds of the complex. Absolutely stunning and peaceful scenery! The condo itself is well-furnished and very comfortable. The kitchen is clean and functions very well. We prepared all of our dinners and enjoyed them on the balcony. Sublime! There are two BBQs in the complex, and the staff cleaned them every day, which was nice. The unit is near the pool area, but while we were there other guests were polite and not too noisy around the pool. The property management staff keep the grounds very clean. We found Kahana to be a good location for getting to other parts of the island without too much travel, while still being a bit removed from the overly-crowded areas of the island -- you can visit those areas then retreat to your beautiful, quiet condo and enjoy the sunset!

FANTASTIC CONDO

  • 5 of 5

I just wanted to say that we stayed at this condo in April 2015 and had the most fantastic time. The condo was beautiful inside, immaculate throughout and extremely comfortable. Gene and Theresa are so accommodating and thoughtful with all required information for Maui at hand. A file awaits you on the table with all information you may require for your well organized and fun vacation to beautiful Maui.

The view from the Condo was breathless and you were guaranteed to see turtles swim by every day. The trade winds in the evening are lovely drifting throughout the condo before you go to sleep. I have nothing but excellent things to say about this condo and would love to stay here again. If you want to feel like you are home, this is the place, everyone is friendly and it is not loud at night when you cannot sleep, you just hear the ocean.

This CONDO DESERVES NOTHING BETTER THAN A FIRST CLASS REVIEW

Thank you to Gene and Theresa.

The view from the Condo was breathless and you were guaranteed to see turtles swim by every day. The trade winds in the evening are lovely to cool down the condo before you go to sleep.

Peaceful, Relaxing, Perfect place to unwind

  • 5 of 5

We had the most amazing time. We loved being able to cook our own meals and sit outside on the lanai. We brought a little candle and had the best seat in the house overlooking the ocean. We loved our time there and hope someday we will be able to come back. Thank you for sharing your condo with us and for making everything so easy.

Fantastic location within walking distance to good food and great beaches! We had a blast waking up to the sound of the ocean and being able to enjoy breakfast on the lanai. Whales would breech and play all day, always a treat! Good snorkeling right in front which was super convenient! Definitely an amazing stay and won't hestitate to go back!

Enjoyed our stay

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for just over a week, you are greeted with the beautiful view from the lanai when you enter the condo. Overall it was very comfortable, the grounds were well kept, the pool was clean hardly ever used. We saw whales & turtles which was great. I would suggest a different mattress for the bed it was really hard. Some better beach chairs would be nice also. I was a nice place to stay and the owners were very helpful.

Owner's Response: Teresa and I would like to thank Linda W. for her wonderful review. All of our guests comment on the spectacular view from our condo. MATTRESS softness or Hardness is a matter of personal preference. Reading our reviews you will find that a number of our guests have commented on how comfortable our mattress is. Teresa and I enjoyed working with Linda and look forward to her return visit.
