About Steve & Nicole

Nicole and I (Steve) are from Calgary, Alberta. We decided to buy a condo in Maui as we have been several times and both love everything Maui has to offer, especially the weather! We find coming to Maui incredibly relaxing and enjoyable. We hope to retire here one day but in the meantime will just continue to enjoy it when we get the chance! We wanted to give other people a chance to get to know Maui like we have and decided to rent out our condo. Out of all the places we have traveled, Maui stays our favorite. We hope you enjoy it and everything is what you hoped for!

Steve & Nicole purchased this condo in 2013

Why Steve & Nicole chose Kahana

Any time we have been to Maui, we have stayed in this area and so we thought this was the best place for us to buy a condo. It has access to all of the amenities we could want, it's close to fabulous beaches and it has a small town vibe which we love. Nicole and I love having a ground floor unit anywhere we go. We like the option of opening up the door and walking to the BBQ area, or just heading out to sit on the beach. There are no stairs to climb with groceries or all of the necessities you need to go to the beach! So when we found this unit at Kahana Reef, we jumped at it.

What makes this condo unique

We bought this unit sight unseen from pictures and we were not disappointed when we saw it in person! It is even better than we expected. It was beautifully taken care of and had everything we could need. We love the view we have from our lanai door, how close the ocean is that we can listen to it falling asleep. The fact that the complex is smaller and quieter than most complexes was also a main draw for us. The beaches that are close by are some of the best, and you can find really quiet ones. We spend the majority of our time at the beach so this was a perfect choice.

Best Maui Vacation Yet

  • 5 of 5
Everything was as listed for the Maui retreat. My wife and I became very mellow and had a hard time leaving. The complex is small. well kept and in a perfect location. Coffee on the patio every morning with a wonderful view of the reef in front and often rainbows on islands off shore. Cooling breezes kept us comfortable as did the nice sized pool. Quick access to the beach was used about everyday. Cooking was a blast because the property is fully equipped and we used the outside grill 6 out of 7 nights. We will be back.

Walking into the space feels unreal, as you see the ocean before you ahhhh…and then staying and sleeping in this cute, well furnished and perfectly located apartment makes one feel so grateful for the spirit of Aloha and for Nicole and her ability to keep her spot sweet.
Although I did catch the last hurricane the Nicole was very kind and accommodated my extended stay on short notice!
Stormy weather or not I will be back and I will return (hopefully soon) and will stay here again!

Perfect Waterfront Condo!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent a week on Maui for a much-needed vacation, and were so pleased with this condo! We loved our morning coffee and evening cocktail out on the lanai, and took advantage of our waterfront location to catch some rays. We had everything we needed and more - well equipped kitchen, plenty of towels, and even a cooler, boogie boards and chairs to take to the beach! Despite the hot weather, we stayed cool and comfortable inside. When we return to Maui I would definitely stay here again!

Great, quiet condo right on the ocean!

  • 5 of 5
We loved this one bedroom, one bathroom first floor condo on the ocean. It had all of the items you need to enjoy your Maui getaway. (Boogie boards, beach chairs, beach towels, kitchen necessities and more). The location is minutes from major beaches and attractions in Kaanapali and Lahaina. The neighbors are very friendly and the beach is quiet and within walking distance. We know this isn't something the owners can control, but during the daytime it was a little noisy due to construction happening in one of the upper units. After a few days we got somewhat use to it. It was really nice to be able to sit out on the ground level lanai every morning and have breakfast and watch the sunset at night. In all, we really enjoyed our stay and this condo!

Excellent in every way

  • 5 of 5
We thought the place was fantastic and can't really think of much else that needed improvement. The unit was exceptionally clean and the kitchen had everything we required, the view was great, easy access to pool, beach, etc. Lovely neighborhood, friendly neighbors, helpful maintenance staff. We spent a lot of time driving around the island so having the coolers available for guests' use was extremely helpful. It was tough to say goodbye and we're already missing the place.

Very Quiet, Very Clean, Very Relaxing

  • 5 of 5
I've visited Hawaii for business or pleasure more than 20 times over the years. This condo was the quietest I've ever rented. It is newly renovated in early 2014, so everything is spotlessly clean. Plenty of high-quality towels (including beach towels) are provided. This unit is on the ground floor, making it easy to use the nearby communal gas BBQ (visible in one of the photos). Condo staff clean the BBQ daily. The louvered windows next to the sliding glass door allowed windows to be left open all night to catch the breeze. There are ceiling fans for cooling, no air conditioning. It was very comfortable in March-April. No washer and dryer in the unit, but there are several coin-op machines right across the courtyard. This unit seems like it would be convenient for a wheelchair user -- all on one level, flat parking lot not far away. It appears that about half the condo units here are owner-occupied, mostly by friendly retirees; that's probably one reason it is so quiet.

Condo grounds are small but very nicely maintained. Pool is on the ocean side of the building so it is pleasant to use and has a nice ocean view. The building has a sea wall so there is no sandy beach directly in front of the building, but there is a long sandy beach starting right next door and extending at least a quarter mile so swimming and beach play are convenient. You can sit on your lanai (patio) and see Molokai, Lanai, and (in season) lots of humpback whales. I regularly saw whales while sitting outside with my morning coffee, and once a huge sea turtle came up on the beach right next door.

The condo is quiet because it is north of most of the developments in this part of Maui, so there isn't much traffic. There is a good Chinese restaurant right across the street, and Maui Brewing is an easy walk around the corner. Many other restaurants are an easy drive away in Whalers Village Shopping Center or in Lahaina. There is a pretty big convenience store within walking distance, for basic groceries.

The condo owners seem helpful and responsive (although I never had any problems that required contacting them). I mentioned a few additional items that would be helpful to have in the kitchen (it already has everything you need for cooking) and they seemed grateful for the input.

I would definitely stay in this condo unit again.

Direct Ocean Front
Car: recommended

This condo has been recently renovated, is very clean and the pride of ownership is evident. It is a direct ocean front condo in a small complex. BBQ's are available a few steps from your Lanai. Enjoy a glass of wine and the waves from your lanai while you cook your dinner. It's one bedroom with a queen size bed, and has a pull out bed. This condo comfortably sleeps 4, and we have tested the pull out couch personally and found it very comfortable.

There are so many amenities close by to choose from! From the shops of Kanapali, the town of Lahaina or the beaches of Napili, the options are endless!

Kanapali boasts high end stores, a fabulous golf course and ocean front restaurants. Everything for every price range! Try Leilani's for a happy hour margarita cool down and daily food specials for those of you on a budget, or a fancy dinner at the Sheraton Black Rock Steak & Seafood restaurant. Luau's are also a great attraction. The Hyatt's Drum's of the Pacific Luau is a favorite! Make sure to book early! All of this just a 10 minute drive away.

Head to Lahaina for some outlet shopping, a tour of the Banyan tree and enjoy the roof top patio at Fleetwood's on Front Street or ocean front dining at Bubba Gump's or Jimmy Buffets, to name a few.

Who can forget to mention the snorkeling! So many tours to take, but almost right out your front door there is the best bay to see turtles. Some of the biggest turtles you will ever see snooze in this bay (if turtles snooze)!

For those of you brave enough, the small single lane road to Hanna is a beautiful drive with pit-stops at waterfalls and beautiful scenery a long the way. But beware it takes time, so if you are not up for a day in the car, this might not be for you.

Or just stay put, sit oceanfront at your condo and hope to see some whales go by!
