About Lauren Kaufman

Although we're long time California residents, we consider Hawaii our second home. We took many wonderful family vacations to the Big Island as well as Maui. Now that I'm grown up, I manage this property on behalf of my family. I also own a pet care business in Los Angeles, CA and my father and brother own and run a prosthetic and orthotics business also located in the Southern California area.

Lauren Kaufman purchased this townhome in 2006

Why Lauren Kaufman chose Lahaina

Kahana Outrigger is right on the ocean with a beautiful view from every unit. Our unit is quiet and private which is what we look for when vacationing. This property is perfect, as it's only a short drive to Kapalua, Lahaina, and Kaanapali. Most other areas on the island can be reached within an hour.

What makes this townhome unique

This property is wonderful. Beautiful weather and water, serene and quiet with a gorgeous view of Molokai out in the distance. Lahaina, Kapalua and Kaanapali are all close by. Bedrooms are large and comfortable and the kitchen is big for those of us who like to cook and spread out while doing so!

Good size and fantastic location.

  • 3 of 5

This condo is situated in a nice little oceanfront complex. This particular unit is not on the ocean but has an ocean view. Two of the three bedrooms are master suites and very nice, the third is smaller with two beds but also has it's own bathroom and washer/dryer. The condo is a bit dated, our shower in the small bedroom had some mold on the tiles and that needs to be addressed. The new granite countertops are nice, the condo could be updated with new paint and trim as it is looking pretty worn in the bedrooms. The family room and kitchen are really nice and quite spacious. Every bedroom has cable TV and the wifi worked okay in the family room but not as good in the bedrooms. For the rent we paid, I thought the condo was worth it, had we stayed at the condo more (we were gone most every day), I probably would have spent a little more and upgraded a bit, but all in all, it worked well for our group of 6 adults.

Beautiful view with close beach access

  • 2 of 5

Encountered problems in 2 bathrooms (in large bathroom in front & middle of townhouse). We called maintenance within minutes of arriving & they said no one could come to fix due to holiday. Toilets kept running continuously.. very annoying sounds.

Dishwasher did not work properly... soap would not dispense.

Could not find extra towels... basically 1 towel per person.

Bathroom door in middle of house does not lock.., door handle is loose & wobbly.

Beach view & access is great. Accomodations were not what we expected.

Dispute over checkout time; folder in home says 10am; but Online confirmation clearly said 11am.

A nice condo away from all of the hubbub

  • 4 of 5

This condo was exactly what we were looking for in our first trip to Hawaii for our extended family. We brought my mother-in-law and my parents to Maui in early October for a surprise trip. Since it was 3BR/3BA we had plenty of bathroom space to get ready in the morning. Everyone had sufficient privacy which can be nice for this type of vacation. ;-)

The kitchen, living room and lanai were the best part of the condo. They overlooked the pool and the garden (very well maintained) and had an ocean view. The ocean was just a short walk across a grass lawn. It's not a long beach but it's nice for a short morning stroll before everyone gets up.

If you're after a 5 star stay, I would recommend going someplace else. The master tub is stained (but clean) and there is some mold on the shower curtains. Additionally, we found some dead cockroaches under the dresser (searching for our daughter's toy) and in the bathroom drawers but hey, this is Hawaii and not necessarily surprising! We didn't find any live bugs so the exterminator is definitely doing his/her job! :-) There were quite a few crumbs under the furniture, probably due to an overly quick clean after the prior guests.

There are some beach toys and a rather large cooler. The latter was very useful since we packed picnic lunches every day to save money on meals.

This condo is north of Lahaina and away from all of the large resorts. It is not a high rise condo. Additionally, it's off the main highway. So it has more of a personal feel. But since it is in the north of West Maui that means you will have a bit of drive to get to many destinations (e.g. Road to Hana, Haleakala National Park etc...) each day if you're doing that type of a vacation. We were and it wasn't too bad although if we were to do it over again we might try staying here for 5 days and East Maui for 2 days.

Lauren, the owner, answered all of our questions quickly and gave very good details about where to park and checking in. She was great. Note that you must wash any used beach towels before checking out (don't let that be a surprise) and check out is at 10:00AM (thought it might be a bit later). But you don't have to wash your sheets or regular towels (I read some reviews that other rentals required this which is no fun when trying to get to the airport!)

Overall this condo was perfect for us and very reasonably priced for what it has to offer. We would definitely stay here again!

Great location, great unit, reasonable price.

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at numerous places in Hawaii. For this trip, our kids and grandkids were with us and we wanted a large enough place to accommodate all eleven of us comfortably. Also, on Maui, I want beachfront and a pool. This town home was perfect for us.

We had room in the bedrooms to put the kids on the floors plus the little couch in one bedroom (on air mattresses or pads, so everyone was comfy and slept well) leaving the main living areas free from sleepers. The living, dining, kitchen greatroom was large enough to hold us all without feeling cramped. There were ample supplies to meet our needs and it was nice to have a bathroom attached to each bedroom.

If we come back to Maui with a good-sized group, we'd happily stay again. Thank you, Lauren, for allowing us to stay in your family's comfortable vacation home.

Addressing some typical Maui comments by others...

There are two beaches here, one directly out front of the complex, and one next door. The one out front is very small, gone in high tide, but you'll have it to yourself for swimming and it has an easy water entry with stairs and enough sandy bottom so you don't stumble. Too small to park your chairs and towels for the day, but we loved it anyhow. The beach next door (about ten paces through the side gate from this complex) is larger and wider and long enough for a nice daily morning or evening walk, which we took on most days, with the grandkids splashing and swimming and beach combing around us. Perfect.

The pool is just four feet deep but was clean, safe, and refreshing. Shower just outside the pool enclosure, so it was perfect to come back from the beach, rinse off, and enjoy the pool. We used it every day. Plenty of lounge chairs, deck area, plus four or five nice tables with chairs and room to eat lunch or dinner poolside.

Final note is that this complex has only sixteen units, so you will definitely be avoiding the crowds you'll find at Kaanapali and Lahaina. We found even Napili, Kapalua, and DTFleming beaches to be packed most of the days since our trip was in July to accommodate the grandkids' school schedules. It was lovely to have our own little swim spot and home base away from the crowds. The units are not new and you'll be able to find something in need of repair if you're looking for it. We weren't.
