Welcome to another great MAUI FOOTPRINTS property (Royal Kahana 413).
This lovely, one-bedroom unit has a complete, unobstructed view of the Pacific Ocean, with very mild surf and great swimming conditions. It has recently been refurnished and redecorated, including a new, hotel-quality, king-sized bed; new sleeper-sofa; and black-out drapes in the bedroom.
This suite has a washer/dryer, central air conditioning, a fully-equipped kitchen and a walk-in shower. Wifi Internet connectivity is complimentary in this suite.
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/sheltered side of the building to reduce any impact of the trade winds and gives you great oceanfront views of incredible sunsets, whales (when is season) and the islands of Lanai and Molokai.
The Royal Kahana has an in-ground pool, an enclosed poolside cabana, five BBQs, ping-pong tables, an exercise room, free morning coffee and an on-site activities center/concierge. Across the street is Kahana Gateway Plaza, a small shopping mall with places such as the Maui Brewing Company, a coffee shop, a Whaler's convenience store, a gas station, McDonald's and several other shops. Dollie's Pub & Cafe and Miso Phat sushi restaurant are also within walking distance for an easy meal. Lahaina, Ka'anapali, and Kapalua are only minutes away by car, 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; the well-known Ka'anapali Beach is to the south).
If a modern unit with stunning ocean views in a prime location is what you are seeking, this is the place for you.

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.'

About Becky Fuller
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 live in a great area but am always looking forward to my next trip to Maui.
Becky Fuller purchased this Condo in 2016
Why Becky Fuller chose Honokowai
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.

Amazing ocean front view that is very affordable
We stayed for 10 days in January 2017. The condo was excellent - very clean, spacious and is exactly as the photos display. The view from the balcony was amazing - fabulous sun sets and we were able to see the whales first thing in the morning (with the help of some binoculars) It was great to have a washer and dryer in the unit and the place was fully stocked with bath towels, beach towels etc. etc. Don't need to bring anything other than suntan lotion. We especially appreciated the use of the owner's beach chairs, coolers and boogie boards for our day trips to the beach, so we didn't have to rent anything. The snorkeling equipment needs to be replaced but other than that everything in the unit was perfect. The Royal Kahana itself is starting to show it's age - we were disappointed that the tennis courts were not operational - the courts are in rough shape and need major repair, plus there is no longer a hot tub or a beach on site. However that aside I would highly recommend this condo for both short term and long term stays and hopefully the complex has plans to upgrade some of their amenities. Thank you to Becky for all her help and quick responses to our questions etc, - greatly appreciated! We hope to be back one day.
It was very spacious and peaceful!!!! Loved the view every morning. Would recommend!!!!
The view was amazing and breath taking!!!!
A great place to spend a relaxing time!
The property of Royal Kahana is our favorite place to stay while in Maui. We usually have family so have had a 2bedroom/2bath in the past. This condo was nice and clean which is usually what is important to us. Comfortable bed, great view of ocean and pool. The only thing we would change is updating décor and new curtains on the slider and bedroom as they are a bit ragged. We would stay here again and would recommend it to others.
I am only giving this a 3 star review and first let me put the pros of this unit. The view from the lanai was awesome the location of the unit was good. Unit was clean furniture very comfortable. The owner was great to work with when booking. The concierge was a big help for the things we wanted to do while here. If your looking to be away from the big resorts and crowds at these resorts this is a perfect place to stay. It was nice to go check out the other resorts. Cons of unit..kitchen is VERY dated, appliances need to be replaced along with shower head. The erroded shoreline made us have to drive to other beaches to be able to walk and enjoy the beach.
I know that it has been a couple of months since Maryanne's kind review, and I wanted to let everyone know that the owner has recently been busy making many upgrades to this unit...including replacing the shower head. He has had the entire unit painted, upgraded the living room and bedroom furniture and added new art work and accessories. He is currently in the process of planning a completely upgraded kitchen with new appliances and cabinets. As Maryanne mentioned, the view is "awesome" and that will never change.
Excellent location, nice view and a very good deal
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.
Perfect condo for family with baby
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!
