Magnificent Kahana On Maui!
Submitted: April 3, 2013
Stayed: March 2013
Having stayed at this unit more than 10 times over the last 15 years, we were more than delighted with new owners Cheri & Rich's steps to make the unit ever more inviting. Upon arrival, you are immediately drawn to the high floor lanai where upon looking to the southwest and the more than 100 degree ocean view, you will almost immediately see whales playing about (in whale season only, however!). The unit is immaculately maintained with the local cleaning folks leaving a box of Hawaiian chocolates for the visitors - nice touch!! (And the management company does a great job of maintaining the overall property.) We look at the unit as a base of operations for doing all things Maui - swimming, sunning, snorkeling, whale watching, dinning, etc. It's a great central location for all this - but you do need a car. You can also stay just at the unit if lying around a pool is your desire and goal. There are four Weber grills to grill on if that suits your fancy; nothing beats cooking on one of the grills, listening to the waves washing up on the shore ten yards away while sipping your favorite adult beverage and being kissed by the tropical breezes! And then you take the cooked items up to your unit on the upper floor, set your table on the lanai for a romantic dinner complete with candle light, sea breeze and a good bottle of wine, all while watching the stars and listening to the waves!! (The kids can watch the new flat screen TV or the smaller one in the bedroom if they don't like romantic dinners with Mom and Dad!) And the waves are a great help in sleeping at night with the windows open! The kitchen and bath areas were upgraded in recent years by the prior owners and are more than adequate. For that trip to the beach below the unit or one of the many more west Maui beaches (some more crowded than others), take along the new Tommy Bahama beach chairs and new beach towels supplied by Cheri and Rich. They certainly add a lot to the day at the beach - especially the TB chairs. If dining in is not your style, there are many good restaurants from the Sea House and Merriman's to the north, to Roy's, Hula Grill and others at Kaanapali and many more in Lahina, including the new multi-faceted Fleetwoods on Front Street, owned by Mick Fleetwood of Fleetwood Mac. Our highest recommendation for this unit! Many thanks to Cheri & Rich for continuing to offer this well supplied/immaculately maintained unit for a great vacation. Aloha & Mahalo!!
