About the property

Our lovely one bedroom is situated on a half mile stretch of uncrowded white sandy beach in the quiet unassuming beachfront community of Kahana. The Royal Kahana Resort is a first class Resort Condominium conveniently located between the fabulous resort areas of Kaanapali Beach and Kapalua Bay. We are just a few minutes drive to the historic whaling town of Lahaina, the superb shops and restaurants at Whalers Village Shopping Center in Kaanapali, and the Championship Golf Courses at Kapalua.

Our condo is ideally located in a very private setting towards the beachfront corner on the 5th floor. Completely remodeled in November 2014! From both the livingroom and bedroom, it boasts MAGNIFECENT DIRECT ocean views with the Island of Molokai on the horizon. We even mirrored the livingroom wall, so YOU ARE VIRTUALLY SURROUNDED BY OCEAN!

Absolutely beautiful modern designer furnishings and decor. There is a full kitchen, washer, dryer, cable TV in both livingroom and bedroom , DVD player, FREE WIRELESS INTERNET ACCESS. FREE LONG DISTANCE CALLS TO MAINLAND AND CANADA,

King bed and queen sofa sleeper,easily accommodating 4 guests.

The master is huge, with it's own walk in closet! And it has it's own slider to the lanai.

Central air and ceiling fans provide maximum comfort. Very spacious, 778 sq. ft. plus lanai.


Amenities at the Royal Kahana include a large heated pool surrounded by a sundeck, and adjacent to a sunning oceanfront lawn area to take in the sweeping ocean views. Whether you choose to swim in the pool, or sun yourself at the pool deck or oceanfront lawn, or take a refreshing dip in the ocean...perhaps a little snorkeling or boogie boarding, or just a stroll down the white sandy beach, you will delight in the natural beauty surrounding you here at the Royal Kahana.

There are 4 gas-fired barbecue grills at the pool area, and a big poolside Cabana providing a dining area with captivating panoramic ocean views. Shaka Ice, located in Cabana, provides breakfast and lunch items.

For relaxed entertainment, there are ping pong tables and shuffleboard. Two lighted Tennis Court attract our more energetic guests. There is also an on site exercise room. The activity desk in the lobby is very helpful in planning your Maui activities. Internet access and conference room is also on site .

The Royal Kahana is within a very short walking distance to many local shops, convenience stores, and great casual to fine dining restaurants.

Located directly on the Kahana Coastline, all shoreline is at the mercy of Mother Nature and the tidal ebb and flow of the ocean with its matching wave action. Thus, beach and/or beach access cannot be guaranteed at any time. But there are a couple beach accesses less than a 5 minute walk from the condo.

Our location makes for a perfect position to take in and experience the incredible sunsets, turtles, and during Whale Season, the most spectacular show of whales breaching right in front of our lanai.

With Kind aloha,

Your hostess,

About Sherrie Kaufman

Originally from Colorado, I moved to Maui about 20 years ago, as the winters got longer and colder as time went on. I am so fortunate to call Maui home. I live in Haiku, on the north shore, ... is a bit more remote here, but I always look forward to a 'mini' vacation at my condo, where I can walk right out the door to the beach!

Sherrie Kaufman purchased this condo in 2006

Why Sherrie Kaufman chose Maui

It has always been about view and location. The most spectacular views you can imagine. This is undoubtedly the best location, as it is towards the oceanfront corner of the resort, no views of other buildings. Very private.

What makes this condo unique

Other than my specific unit being in truly the best location within the resort, The Royal Kahana Resort is impeccably maintained ,with beautiful grounds, oceanfront pool, central air, fitness center and sauna, underground parking. It is also very convenient to shopping and restaurants, with the Kahana Gatway Shopping Center just across the street!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Sherrie, you are consistently on top the condo rental business. As always, your condo is clean, well stocked and a wonderful place to stay. I appreciate your thoughts to all the detail in this place, and it is always a real pleasure to work with you. You are attentive to my inquiries, and I feel I have a good and trusted friend in you. I can't say enough how much I am impressed with you and how easy you always make my stays here in Maui. I have lost count as to how many times I have stayed in this condo, it is a sanctuary, a wonderful place to settle in for my stay. I hope to return again soon. Many Mahalos and Aloha!

More than we expected!

  • 5 of 5

What a nice property! Very clean and well maintained. The view from the deck is amazing. We were able to watch whales and dolphins while having our morning coffee. The condo is in a great location. We loved going to the Maui Brewing Company which is only a 3 minute walk. Kitchen was well stocked with necessities and very nice appliances. There were a couple of beach chairs in the closet that got lots of use. The owner checked on us a couple times to make sure things were going OK. We definitely will be heading back.

Overall, I don't think we could have done better selecting the perfect VRBO rental. The location is great, so close to various restaurants, bars, and shops. The condo has everything you could think of, including coolers and snorkel gear for the beach. We felt right at home when relaxing inside, a very comfortable stay to say the least. The view from the balcony is amazing, perfect for watching the sunset. The complex itself is quiet and peaceful, it has something to offer to any guest regardless of age. We had no issue with street noise or waves as mentioned in some of the reviews. If anything, the quaint sound of the waves is rhythmic and enhances relaxation. In fact, my wife and I found ourselves missing that the most! I could go on and on, but no need, for we are planning on coming back to stay in Sherrie's immaculate condo. She is very responsive and enjoyable to work with, so we will continue to do so. So thank you Sherrie, for this condo set the tone for a perfect honeymoon!

Second stay; perfect accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in Sherrie's Royal Kahana condo in 2015 and just loved it! We couldn't wait to return, so we decided to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary here in April 2016. It was absolutely perfect! We love this condo. It's in a great location, has spectacular views, is well appointed and isn't overrun by tourists. From the balcony, we enjoyed watching rainbows over the ocean in the morning, turtles swimming along the coast during the day and seeing the sun set behind the Pacific in the evening. The condo has everything you need for a comfortable stay, including beach chairs and other equipment that we didn't have to rent (an extra thank you!). Sherrie is a wonderful property owner -- very responsive, interested in her clients' needs and ensures the condo is well maintained. We couldn't be happier to have found this gem on Maui and thank Sherrie for sharing it with us. We plan to come back year after year. It's truly paradise!

We really enjoyed our stay at this condo. The view was amazing & we spent half of our time on the balcony. The kitchen was updated & fantastic. After being at a hotel for the previous 5 days we enjoyed being able to cook meals ourselves. We also utilized the BBQ's downstairs more than once. The grocery store was nearby so this was helpful & there is a little liquor store right across the street that we would walk to. Although we didn't use the pool, we enjoyed the beach & snorkeled daily. One evening we saw a family of sea turtles swimming just near the shore. The condo was clean & had everything we needed. The carpets had recently been cleaned so there was a bit of a off-putting ammonia scent, but after airing out the condo for a little bit it went away. At least we knew the carpet was clean. The owner was super sweet & very easy to communicate with. We would definitely stay here again!
