About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Convertible bed(s), Sleeps 7

Kahana Sunset is quite special since it has its own spacious white sandy beach in Keone Nui Bay. Sitting on our west facing beach you have picturesque views of Molokai and Lanai islands.

Since this is a small complex, it is ideal for family vacations and there is something for everyone to enjoy. Loads of lawn and garden space if the pool and beach are not your preference. Both of our lanais give you straight on views of our grounds and sunsets on the water.

We're sure once you've spent your first vacation here ... you'll return. Over 50% of Kahana Sunset guests are return guests, many have been vacationing here for over 20 years.

About John King

The King's, Kathie and John. Our first visit to this complex was on our honeymoon in 1994 and we have been vacationing there once or twice a year ever since. In 2002 we decided we had to purchase our own piece of paradise. Our son Marc and his wife Nicki and our grand kids Gianna and Dante really love this Maui paradise too. We should all be so lucky, G We all live in Windsor, California, which is about an hour north of San Francisco.

John King purchased this condo in 2002

Why John King chose Maui

We chose to buy here because it's a smaller complex, the grounds are well maintained, has it's own beach, great views of Molokai and Lanai, good snorkeling, and it's peaceful.


Car: recommended

Kahana Sunset is located just below Napili, and we are 8 miles north of Lahaina. Kahana is very quiet and peaceful but we are only only a few miles from the typical tourist attractions.

Other Activities: Boating, Shopping, Kayaking, Parasailing

Sun, Surf and Turtles

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at the Kahana Sunset for 10 glorious days in July, 2017, and there was plenty of room for 5 adults and one child in unit D7. We've been to Maui before and stayed in the Wailea area , but we were keen to try Kaanapali-Kapalua hoping it did not have the sometimes-strong onshore breezes that can be found near Kihei and Wailea in the summer months. I'm happy to report that the Kahana Sunset beach does not seem to have this problem.

The property is well-kept and clean with a nice solar heated pool, BBQ areas which are cleaned daily, lots of flora and fauna, and even an herb garden. Guests can pick what they want from it as well as the citrus trees. The limes, rosemary, mint, and chives came to good use in the kitchen. While the beach is small, there is almost no reason to go anywhere else for snorkeling. Every day we saw turtles and a wide variety of fish. While the other beaches 1 or 2 miles away are larger and more picturesque (Napili Bay, Kapalua Beach), they are rather crowded.

The unit is well-appointed, especially the kitchen, which my wife and daughter-in-law used quite a bit. The beds are very comfortable. The sun sets over Moloka'i which is directly across the water from the Kahana Sunset. People gather down by the sea wall and beach every evening to watch the sun go down on another beautiful day in Hawaii. Since there is no AC, the unit does get warm in the afternoon until the sun goes down. Since we are from Arizona, this was not an issue for us.Just open all the windows and doors, turn on the fans, and let the trade winds take over.

The location is quiet for the most part. Other than the plentiful singing birds, neighbors with needy infants/toddlers and the occasional car driving on the road, which sweeps behind the property, breaks the morning solitude. Sitting out on the lanai in the morning with a cup of coffee or in the evening with a glass of wine is very relaxing. As I write this, I wish I was back there now. Thank you, King Family, for a wonderful stay!

It was nice.

  • 4 of 5

Furniture was comfortable. Master bedroom mattress was great. Only bad part was no air conditioning. Probably not needed most of time, but in September it was really hot upstairs in bedrooms. Exhaust fans in bathrooms would be nice.

Owner's Response: There are exhaust fans in the bathrooms but like most they are not the most efficient. That is the reason we had ceiling fans also installed in the bathrooms. As for AC we had it planned to install in late September, but the contractor has pushed us back to early November 2017.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Kahana Sunset. Location is close to great snorkeling and the condo had everything we needed!! The beds were very comfortable but the sofa sleeper mattress was unsleepable. The unit needs a really good deep cleaning of the carpet, tile floors and cabinet faces. I'd give this rental 5 starts if it were cleaner. The sunset over the ocean was spectacular!!

Owner's Response: Because the sofa-bed has to fold up they are never as comfortable as a regular bed and I always make this known to a guest if they plan on using it. I will have my property manager address the cleaning situation.

4 children, 1 senior, 2 adults shared a condo with a beautiful view of the ocean. A sea turtle rested there for a night. The kids also loved the pool. Wifi was great. The roll out bed wasn't very comfortable but the other beds were great. Beautiful birds landed on our outside patio where we spent some time. The location was close to the Drums of the Pacific Luau, a skyline activity and a popular beach.

Owner's Response: Unfortunately we cannot control the quality of a roll-away bed that the guest rented from an outside service.

Nice condo with a great view and terrific kitchen!

  • 4 of 5

Condo is lovely, with a simply amazing view and a great kitchen for those who get tired of eating out every day. Bedrooms and beds upstairs are comfy but very warm in the summer with no black out curtains in the master to keep the days worth of sun from heating it up and no air conditioning to alleviate it (we had to stuff blankets over the thin drapes). But everything else from the complex to its beautiful beach (where we saw literally 15 giant turtles) was worth it!!
