|Minimum Stay||3 nights|
In many people's opinion (read the guest comments at the end), this unit has the best LOCATION on Maui, the best LOCATION in Kahana, and the best LOCATION in the Royal Kahana. It's on the leeward side of the building to reduce any impact of the tradewinds and gives you great oceanfront views of incredible sunsets, whale watching, and the island of Lanai (and even a tiny glimpse of Molokai from the lanai)..
This lovely one bedroom unit is within a complex that directly fronts the Pacific Ocean, with very mild surf and great swimming, and has recently been completely refurnished and redecorated, including new hotel quality king size bed, new sofa-sleeper with 6' mattress, and black-out drapes in the bedroom.
The Royal Kahana has an in-ground pool, an enclosed poolside cabana, five barbeques, ping pong tables, an exercise room, free morning coffee, and an onsite Expedia activities center/concierge. Across the street is Kahana Gateway Plaza, a small shopping mall with several great restaurants such as the Black Angus, Maui Brewing Co., a coffee shop, Maui Dive Shop, a Whaler's convenience store, a McDonalds, and several other shops. Lahaina, Kaanapali, and Kapalua are minutes away, as are many world class beaches (D T Fleming beach is just north and has been voted one of the best beaches in the world).
Just a few of the guest comments from our guestbook from over the years are:
What a terrific place you have! We loved sitting on your lanai spotting turtles offshore and seeing whale spouts. The sunsets were fabulous as well. We walked the beach every day and were rewarded with turtles that were sunning themselves in the rocks by the park to the far left. We enjoyed snorkeling at Kapalua Bay and Napili Bay, plus right off this shore down by the park. Great mai-tais were to be had during 'Aloha Hour' - (3 - 5) at Leilanis & the Hula Grill at Whaler's shopping plaza in Kaanapali Beach. We also enjoyed Maui Brewing right behind your place. We hope to return someday!

'We came here for our 30th anniversary and were not disappointed. The condo and the view were just great! Every day we said, 'Today was the most awesome day' starting with the luau in Lahaina, then the sunrise & bike ride down Haleakala, then snorkeling on Lanai & finally the Road to Hana which was spectacular and we went clear around to the winery with no problem... Capped the week off with a sunset dinner cruise. One of our BEST weeks of our 30 yrs! Thank you so much!!!'

'MAHALO, MAHALO, MAHALO'
'I wanted to connect and thank you for allowing us to share your beautiful and comfortable Maui home-away-from-home. Our stay was wonderful and the Royal Kahana fit our needs perfectly.
I can’t express how lovely our time on Maui was, and always is, and how lucky we were to have stayed in your beautiful island home. The sunsets were awesome, there were monk seals off our beach, as well as turtles and a giant eagle ray we snorkeled with right off the reef in front. We really needed this Hawaiian holiday and you helped us make it possible. Thank you Thank you. Thank you!'

We are just getting packed up to leave this morning and I wanted to let you know we had a FABULOUS vacation. Your Condo was everything you said it would be and more! We loved having our breakfast on the lani each morning enjoying the breeze and the ocean view. The beaches you recommended were excellent and I even saw a turtle snorkeling at Kapaula beach!
We would like to know what type bed you have, we enjoyed a restful sleep each night. We also enjoyed falling asleep to the sound of the ocean each night.
Thanks again, we had a wonderful trip and are sad to leave. I'm already thinking of the next time I come back.'

Bob and I wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed our stay in your condo last week. It was wonderful waking up to that view
everyday. Couldn't have asked for anything better in the condo.
Every amenity was there. Location was great and having the fitness center was a real plus. All the info you sent was very helpful.
Thanks again for making our vacation so memorable. We will definitely be back.'

I had dreamed about owning a second home in Hawaii for many years, and finally the dream has come true. I love it here, at any time of the year. I have traveled alot and live in a great area, but am always looking forward to my next trip to Maui.
Becky Fuller purchased this condo in 2013
After going to several different islands and locations in Hawaii, I found that the unique characteristics here in Kahana suited me the best. The Royal Kahana is about as close to the ocean as you would want to get (indeed, all new properties are required by law to be hundreds of feet away from the coast for public access). There is a country feel here in Kahana that you don't get anywhere else, yet you are so close to the large resorts.
I enjoyed our stay in this condo very much. Looking at the great ocean and beautiful sunsets all day, every day! Listening to the waves makes for a wonderful night's sleep :) and watching the turtles and stingrays is entertaining. We've made lots of trips to Maui and Kahana is becoming our favorite spot (sorry Kihei!). Hope to return here again soon. Mahalo.
PS The Aloha Mixed Plate in Lahaina has great food at an even better price! Great breakfast at The Gazebo (but really long wait) and the happy hour @ Sands of Kahana is excellent!
We stayed there in September 2016. The condo is in excellent condition and the layout is awesome. Both the living room and the master bedroom have the ocean view.
The condo is clean and has all the advertised amenities. The condo is away from the elevator and thus very quiet.
In addition, few underground parking.
We stayed at this condo for a week in April. It met all of our expectations and the view off the balcony is stunning! We watched turtles from the balcony every day. The kitchen was perfect for our family to cut costs by going to Costco by the airport on the way in and making food at the condo. The bedroom with a door was perfect for us as we were traveling with a baby. We rented a crib from a local company and were able to put her down to sleep and shut the door so we could stay up longer either out on the lanai or in the living room. The wall by the balcony is glass so that you get the gorgeous views while lounging on the couch.
The pool was great and not crowded at all when we were there. The beach directly in front of the condo is being worked on but the closest beach is only 5 minutes walk in front of another resort.
I highly recommend this place for families! It cost us much less than staying at a hotel with much more room, oceanfront view, free parking and no resort fees!
This was a great experience. We went there for Christmas and New Years, for 8 days. The view from the balcony was spectacular, we sat there each evening and admired the sunset. More than we expected. Loved the open layout of the condo and beach themed decorations. Condo has everything we needed for kitchen supplies, towels etc. Even beach towels, beach chairs, boogie boards and cooler. We felt very welcomed. Management was quick to answer questions and was super helpful. It also didn't hurt that the condo is a block away from Maui Brewery! This was an excellent choice for us. Thank you to the owner and to management!
This unit within the Royal Kahana property has a superb view from the bedroom and lanai of the pool and ocean. The lanai is an excellent place to enjoy breakfast or an evening drink while watching the sunset. The unit was clean, furnished with the essentials as well as beach chairs, boogie boards, tennis rackets, & beer cooler! This vacation unit is an excellent value and the Royal Kahana resort is an exceptional location on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. My wife and I have been to Maui many times and would recommend this unit to family and friends.
We must say...it wasalmost perfect! Location is ideal...views are AMAZING! The owners/managers were very attentive..we really appreciated that.. condo is older but very well maintained...after 2 weeks..we fell in to a routine and were ready to stay! Dollies had a fun happy hour after renting bikes and riding into Lahinia and back..napili market was amazing also...snorkeling and ocean kayaking available nearby...would rent again in a second..and just may:-) thank you!
