Kahana Condo Rental Photos and Description

Beachfront Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath (Sleeps 4)

Just 77 steps to a mile-long white sand beach and coral reef for snorkeling, with no roads to cross, at one of Maui's true beachfront resorts. Beachside Maui Condo is an extra-roomy 1-bd., beautifully located condo at Outrigger Royal Kahana, north of Lahaina in the cooler part of West Maui. Our owner rates save you 20 - 40 percent off resort prices. An up to $355/night value.

PARTIAL OCEAN VIEW. And it's beautiful! Best from private lanai where there's an unobstructed view of the ocean and island of Molokai. A private terrace overlooks a quiet garden area and leads to the beach.

RARE TO FIND, EASY TO ACCESS, GROUND FLOOR. No elevators to wait on or stairs to climb. Priced below ocean-view condos at the resort. The ground-floor condo offers all of the homey appeal of well-appointed upper floor condos, plus it's budget-friendly, perfect for families with young children, and exceptionally convenient. There are loads of ocean-view condos to choose from...we're rare enough to be one of the most requested condos in the complex.

EXTRA ROOMY. There's nothing pinched or 'hotel' feeling about a 777-square foot condo with a fully-equipped kitchen, in-unit washer/dryer, 2 flat screen TVs, spa-inspired travertine tiled/glass enclosed shower, dining room, a private master bedroom, private lanai, and spacious living room.

AMONG THE BEST CONDOS AVAILABLE AT THE RESORT. One of a handful at the resort recently remodeled, top to bottom. We took away the dated look and keep the look fresh, clean and appealing.

COMPARE US WITH OTHERS. NO cleaning fee! FREE Parking. FREE Beachtowels. FREE WiFi. NO ADDED Per Guest charges (maximum occupancy is 4.). NO EXTRA CHARGE for use of the resorts amenities including heated pool, lighted tennis courts, fitness center, barbecue and picnic areas, and concierge. We don't load up our guests up with unexpected and extra charges, instead we prefer to provide lots of extras for our guests.

A RELAXING LOCATION FOR YOUR MAUI HOLIDAY. Kahana is known for its casual comfort and beautiful views. It's a central location for enjoying West Maui's most popular attractions. The resort is situated in a well-established resort/residential community with a relaxed, village-like feel, a beachside setting, and the convenience of nearby shopping, cafes and dining, public transportation and a wide variety of recreational and cultural attractions. Humpback whales migrate to the area between Nov. and April and sea turtles live in the reef offshore.

The Royal Kahana has long been considered one of the most established, premier beachfront resorts on Maui. This great West Maui location is just 6 miles north of Lahaina, the #1 tourist destination in Maui. A temperate climate, scenic ocean views and a location that's central to the island's preferred activities are what make this a perfect spot to enjoy your Maui vacation.

The Royal Kahana is a TAG approved (Travel Alternatives Group) accommodation.

PERFECT FOR YOUNG FAMILIES. No high balconies to navigate. Your little one(s) can nap undisturbed in the master bedroom, with doors closed, so you can enjoy all the rest of the space. Since we have a tiled shower (no bathtub), a bathtub large enough for toddlers is provided and conveniently stored in the condo's entry closet.

CHECK-IN - 3 PM (Hawaii Standard Time)

CHECK-OUT - 11 AM (Hawaii Standard Time)

(We can be flexible on these times, depending on our booking calendar, and given prior 10-day notice that you would like them adjusted.)

Guestbook comments from the owner
Thank you!

Just wanted to let you know that we really enjoyed your condo. Everything about it was great! We were able to rent paddleboards across the street. We kept them for the week, locking them up in the downstairs storage area, at night. There was plenty of parking available. The kids enjoyed tennis and ping pong in the evenings, after dinner. I sat outside, on the lanai, enjoying my coffee while watching the whales. I appreciated the little things in the condo, like spices for cooking, laundry soap for the laundry, hangers in the closet. We really had a comfortable time. Thank you!

We enjoy helping guests find their perfect vacation spot. We embrace and understand that your vacation experience needs to be unique and we are willing to cater to it. We are semi-retired, living in California's Bay area. Rick is an archaeologist. Darlene is a writer. We loved our condo in Maui from the minute we opened the door and felt the breeze off the ocean caress us. That was in 2005. We recently updated the condo.... a lot of work...but all the while we were adding personal touches, painting walls, shopping for new furnishings, installing contemporary fixtures, and fussing over every little detail, we were thinking of you. In every detail, we invited and welcome each and every one of you. Our wish is that you feel happy, comfy, relaxed and restored every day of your stay in our beachside Maui condo home.

Darlene Norwood purchased this condo in 2005

It's beautiful! With one of the world's best views. The condo is roomier than we ever expected a condo to be, so it feels like home. You just walk out the door and you're on the beach. It's location makes it feel private, even though you're in a high-rise. The sound of the ocean and the breeze rustling through the palms, the thrill of seeing whales or turtles just offshore, rainbows in the morning, gorgeous sunsets at's true paradise!

We love living local vs. hotels. Kahana is unique among all the options on Maui. A gem among them for those who enjoy causual comfort and who are drawn to something a bit more discreet than the wildly popular spots. It's convenient, affordable, relaxed and it's hard to beat the climate and scenic beauty here.

We are a family of 4 and recently stayed in this condo. It was truly better than we had expected. It had everything a family could want and more! The view from the Lanai is better than any photo could capture. The unit its self was very spacious, comfortable, and homey. We got so much use out of the fully equipped kitchen and having the dining room table great for our family. The property grounds are very well kept. The pool was so nice and all of the residents we encountered were very friendly and quick to offer suggestions & recommendations on places to go. We saw so many turtles on the beach right on the property and the sunset was breathtaking. Darlene the owner made the reservation process so quick and easy. We are already planning a second trip back.

We just returned from a wonderful 10 days in this condo. We found it to be everything as advertised only it was much bigger than expected! We watched whales and rainbows from the lanai and the beach was great. Turtles Everywhere!
This is a wonderful spot located in the center of the upper west side, close to Honolua and Napili Bay and only 15 minutes to Lahaina.
You can't go wrong with this condo.

The condominium it's in the ground level so you can have asset to the beach for swimming or just to walk along the shore.
From the terrece you have the most beautiful view and in our case numeral sightings of whales , that is the most amazing feeling .
Inside your condo have anything you need for having a great time , it's comfortable and well equipped . Outside or your condo have swimming pool, tennis court , good size parking lot and markets and small shops .
And the best assets are the condominium owners themselves , Darlene and Rick they are the nicest host ever ! Don't hesitate if you need to contact them .

Owner's Response: We "met" Josie when she called us to inquire about our property. We spent time learning from each other if there was a good match between what Josie and Joel were looking for and what we had to offer. We were pretty sure this was going to be a winner for both of us. And it was! Hooray that our wonderful guests enjoyed their stay. And many mahalos for the excellent review! Please do return soon!

Owner's Response: Mahalo to our guest for taking the time to review his family's stay and for the "excellent" rating. It's gratifying to learn that our condo, with its lanai doors leading to the beach and pool, suited his young family so well. We'd be pleased to welcome them back for another stay anytime.

Kahana is the place to 'live local' vs. staying in a hotel. Scenic and relaxed it invites you to make yourself at home. It is one of West Maui's true beachfront locations, 6 miles north of Lahaina, close to Kapalua Bay, Napili, and many other scenic, shopping, dining and sporting attractions. Free parking. Bus route runs along Lower Hanoapiilani with a stop just outside the front door. Has a village feel with walkers and runners along L. Hanoapiilani where the beach is in view. Local farmers market 2 miles away, across from the Honokowai Beach Park. Boss Frog's Dive and Surf Shop, to gear up for any kind of water sport, is in a shopping center down the block. Mile-long white sand beach for swimming with a coral reef offshore for snorkeling. Just steps from the back door. Kahana Grill and Maui Brewing Co. are across the street, for great food and, of course, locally brewed, award-winning ales and lagers. Sunsets are spectacular and part of the resort's tradition when torches are lighted and guests gather on the lawn facing the ocean...every night. Spotting whales, in season, is a popular past time and gentle sea turtles can usually be encountered while taking a swim.

PERFECT FOR INTER-ISLAND TRAVELERS! Kapalua West Maui commuter airport is less than 4 minutes away. Our owner rates are 30-60% better than the island-hopper airlines' package deals at the Royal Kahana.
