Overview

Kahana Condo Rental Photos and Description

Live Aloha in my dream home on the sea!!!!!!!!!!! You deserve to vacation here!!

Aloha and welcome to 'Livin the Aloha Dream'. Imagine vacationing on the edge of the ocean! From the lanai, all you see is the ocean, islands of Molokai and Lanai, palm trees, beaches, whales, sea turtles, sailboats, paddle boarders, windsurfers, parasailers, and last but not least rainbows. The magical sound of the waves will be music to your ears as you fall asleep. Watching the sun set between the islands is mesmerizing. Rainbows are breathtaking as the sailboats sail through them. Watching whales breach and spout from the lanai is a sight you will hold in your memory forever.

Kahana is nestled between Kaanapali and Kapalua and only a ten minute drive to Lahaina. There is a beach adjoining the property and there are many restaurants within walking distance including a coffee shop, health food store and farmers market. 'Livin the Aloha Dream' is a private get-away and hidden treasure from the hustle/bustle of the high-end hotels where you can kick back and enjoy your vacation your way - with Aloha!

Suitability:
  • non smoking only
  • pets not allowed
  • wheelchair inaccessible

About Cheryl Caleca

I have considered myself an island girl since I lived on the north shore of Oahu for ten years many moons ago! What a great way to spend my twenties as I attended the University of Hawaii. My quest to see the world after college took me to new jobs in San Francisco and Germany. Returning to the U.S., I worked for an Anheuser-Busch distributor for twenty five years before moving to San Diego to retire on my sailboat. I traveled to many countries including Australia, New Zealand and most of Europe but I always kept coming back to Hawaii for my 'happy place'. Wanting to own a slice of this heavenly island has been a dream of mine all of my life. Last year I made my dream a reality and bought this gem of a condo. I completely renovated the whole condo and started from scratch making it my home to someday live in.

I am currently living on my 49' Beneteau sailboat in San Diego and plan to vacation here in Maui several times a year during my retirement. To me, there is nothing in the whole world better than rejuvenating my Aloha Spirit and Livin the Aloha Dream in this heavenly slice of earth.

Cheryl Caleca purchased this condo in 2013

Why Cheryl Caleca chose Kahana

'Livin the Aloha Dream' is simply what it says ... livin my dream and hopefully livin your dream.

I hope you will chose my amazing condo and live the dream with me a - a dream of a lifetime one dream at a time!!!

What makes this condo unique

This top corner unit is quiet, private and new. As you walk in the door, you will immediately feel a sense of calmness come over you as you go straight to the lanai and awe in wonder of its aqua marine beauty.

The lanai has comfortable seating for four and a dining table and chairs. It has lanai shades to pull down and clip on the rail if the afternoon sun gets too hot for you.

I added a large closet and built in drawers for your clothes. You can just 'move in' for your stay! You don't have to live out of your suitcase and step over your 'stuff'.

Another added feature is a safe for your passport, extra cash and jewelry. It just makes us feel better to lock our valuables away.

A keyless door entry alleviates you carrying a key with you.

A full size refrigerator and stove with oven will allow you to cook at home - only if you want to!

Having a washer/dryer in the unit as well as an air conditioner and dishwasher will make your vacation a real vacation. Who wants to 'rough it' on vacation? Not you!

Overall, I am in love with this unit and know you will be as soon as you see it. Maui No Ka Oi means Maui is the best. My motto is Livin the Aloha Dream No Ka Oi.

Perfection...all around!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from our trip to Maui and can’t stop raving about how wonderful the condo was (and the vacation of course)! We pulled up to the building and made our way to Cheryl’s unit. Upon opening the door, we were met with a condo that looked exactly like the pictures – such a relief! The unit is open and airy, decorated beautifully, and has all the amenities you could ever need (she even provides “hotel style” shampoo conditioner, etc.). The view is gorgeous, and waking up to the waves hitting the seawall is such a treat. We even got to see Mr. Turtle feeding on the rocks below most evenings while watching the sunset between Lanai and Molokai.

The condo is in a great location in northwest Maui, just north of Kaanapali and Lahaina, which proved to be a good home base for us and our adventures. Tip: Be sure to read the guest book when you arrive to see suggestions from previous guests for places to go and restaurants to eat at.

It’s not in the pictures, but Cheryl has added a super comfortable chair (which rocks) and ottoman in the living area. The internet worked well as did the air conditioning, although we barely used it. The bed and pillows were extremely comfortable and there were even extension cords near the nightstands so you never had to reach for your phone while it was charging. But the star feature is really the balcony. We spent every morning out there sipping our coffee and eating breakfast, just taking in the beautiful scenery and deciding what we should do that day. And if you’re wondering...yes, there are already coffee filters there for your use, so no need to pick those up :)

There is a beach nearby that you can take a quick dip in, but we really enjoyed heading down to Kahekili Beach (aka “Airport Beach”) just a few miles south. They have plenty of free parking and there was barely anyone there. We grabbed snorkeling gear at a store nearby and spent the entire day there swimming with sea turtles and enjoying the shade from the trees on the beach.

You seriously cannot go wrong booking this condo. This was our first VRBO experience and it has really set the bar high. Cheryl designed a beautiful space and provides all the comforts of home – plus a million dollar view. All you need to do is get there!

Amazing gem right on the water!!!

  • 5 of 5

I hate to even review this in fear it will be booked all the time!! This was, hands down, THE most pristine condo we've ever stayed in! The owner was so helpful and sweet. We had absolutely everything we needed for a great stay. She has it all. The toys, the coolers -- she literally thought of everything you'd need-- including an AV jack for our jeep to play music from our iPhone! Thank you for an incredible honeymoon! We hope to be back next year for our anniversary!!

Owner's Response: Mahalo Cristie! It really is the perfect honeymoon spot! Actually the spot for any celebration or just a get away! I love it too. Hope to see you back for many anniversaries to come! Congratulations on your wedding! Aloha, Cheryl

Perfect condo in Maui

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying at the condo. It was decorated beautifully and really made you feel at home. Cheryl thought of every little detail and everything is at the condo you may need. We were only able to stay here for the first 3 nights of our vacation since it was booked and now just keep talking about how much we loved this place instead of the resort we are at. Thank you so much for letting us stay and we would definitely recommend this condo to anyone ever traveling to maui. It is the perfect location and the perfect condo.

Suite condo-ocean front

  • 5 of 5

The condo suite was excellent accommodation comparable to a 4-5 star hotel.it was a low rise condo with ocean front balcony views within feet of ocean allowing visitors to enjoy sounds of suf and opportunity to see whales and sea turtles from suite balcony. Shopping and eateries close to condo. Would recommend to singles and couple.

Love this Aloha Dream!

  • 5 of 5

We had a spectacular stay at the condo! It really became a "home away from home" for the five days we had. The unit is so well appointed with charming Hawaiian decorations, it could have been used as a model home in a travel magazine. Additionally, it was well-stocked with kitchen supplies, towels, beach towels, umbrellas, beach chairs - anything you could think of needing while enjoying Maui.

The lanai was also the perfect place to enjoy your own nature show of sea turtles and whales. Just walking outside in the morning with a cup of coffee was an opportunity to view some amazing wildlife.

We are definitely planning to come back to Maui. Hopefully, this piece of Aloha will be available for us when we do!

Ocean side with direct view of Lanai and Molokai

  • 5 of 5

Choose this property! My family and I arrived days before Christmas 2014. This was our first trip to Maui. We travel a lot, usually staying in a large chain hotel with very modern updates and conveniences, so are pretty particular about what we like. This condo is so beautifully updated. The owner does not explain how perfect and beautiful the view is from the lanai of her home. You are literally feet above the Pacific Ocean with nothing else in your view. The condo is on the third (and highest) level and it is the corner unit. It has been updated so beautifully. We really felt like this home was decorated by someone that plans on living it them selves. Every detail was planned and perfect. We enjoyed every moment there. There is absolutely nothing negative to say about this property or the personal contact with the owner. She emailed us a few days after arrival to ask how our holiday was and confirm we were comfortable. She provided every amenity she claims on her listing and then some. We will return to Maui and we will only book at this property. It is truely perfect. I would recommend to any friend to also choose this property.

Owner's Response: Mahalo Stephanie - I am thrilled you loved my place. You are right - I do plan on living here someday and come here several times a year! I am sitting on the lanai right now with my cup of coffee listening to the waves while I watch two paddle boarders go by. Aloha!

Notes:

Everything in the condo is new including walls, floors, bamboo ceiling, cabinetry, bathroom, kitchen, living area, lanai and furnishings. The view is breathtaking - you can literally throw a shell in the water! It is now ready to share with you!!! State of Hawaii Transient Accommodations and General Excise Tax License W53540445-01
