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 Honokowai
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.

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!
AC will be installed in October 2017.
Great location, wonderful beach, terrific views
It was fantastic place to stay and very good location. The newly installed AC worked as expected and was really helpful during our stay. The surrounding property is well-kept with plenty of flowers and tropical fruits. The beach is great, and we enjoyed swimming and snorkeling with turtles. We enjoyed having a barbecues with ocean view. Kahana Sunset condo is just comfortable place for vacation on Maui.
First impression was walking into a unit that literally stunk
The unit had an odor as we first walked in and it was coming from the filthy carpeting going up the stairs. Not a good way to start your vacation.
I have stayed at Kahana Sunset 5 times and never experienced this in the past. The unit is in need of upgrades. The handrails going up the stairs were very tacky and seemed to be dirty, but I think it was just that the many layers of paint never set up. We bought clorox wipes to try to clean and disinfect it . You should replace the carpeting and handrails.
Sullivan properties did not do a good job of keeping this unit in top condition. We would not use them again
I will call Sullivan Properties immediately to resolve these problems.
Great location, amazing beach, terrific views
My wife, two kids (2 and 5), mother in law and I all stayed at this great home and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Our favorite was snorkeling with the many giant turtles off the beach. I don’t think we could have asked for a better place to stay while we were in Maui. Only drawback was the lack of bathroom on the main floor, but that was not a big deal. Oh and the fridge was a little noisy. Also not a big deal. Overall if you stay here, you won’t be disappointed.
Thank you for your review it is very helpful to know what a guest experiences were while enjoying our condo on their vacation. Most of these condos were built in the early 70's and without a half bath downstairs. When you have a large group the extra bath would be very helpful. I'll have the refrigerator checked out, thanks again for your input.
It was fantastic space to stay and very good location.
Great experience! Loved it. Only downfall was the beach being so rough. It made it hard to sit with the kids on the beach. But everything else was excellent
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.
