About Ralph

My family and I have been traveling back and forth to Hawaii for many years. We all work hard all year and like to be able to relax far away from our normal routine. By the way, we always go with the 5 of us, and the 5th sleeps on an air matress!

Ralph purchased this condo in 2007

Why Ralph chose Maui

We looked and looked and waited for just the perfect unit. When I first saw the unit, it was perfect. The view was exactly what I wanted. Directly in front of the ocean. It was on the ground level which makes it so convenient. The building is kept so clean with pride. So myself and my husband knew we had to have it.

What makes this condo unique

We all enjoy cooking our meals, so the first thing we do after landing and securing a rental car, is going on a COSTCO run and buying food and drink we will use during our weeks stay! Being steps from the bbq, It is so easy to prepare your food and then walk right back to your 'lanai'. It must be difficult if you rent on the 2nd or 3rd floors to carry the food down and then up quickly, before it gets cold. It's just like you would BBQ at your home. The pool is also very conveniently located, so you can take a dip, run to your condo fro a drink, and back on the lounge in 2 minutes! Snorkeling is the 'big' thing here. We provide 5-7 pairs goggles, snorkels, and fins, so usually, our 'vacationers' don't have to bring them. Honlu'a Bay, Black Rock and Napiili Bay are 3 of the 6 best places for snorkeling in Maui, and those 3 are each less than 10 minutes away! There is plenty for the whole family to do; since the kids are getting older they can enjoy the pool and beach while we golf and visit the local landmarks and the beautiful natural surroundings that the Islands have to offer. We usually go into Laina a few nights to eat, Bubba Gumps and B.J.'s Pizza are great, with many other restaurants and bars available. Our condo is 5 minutes walking distance to Roy's, the Brew Pub, and 'OkaZuya' our favorite 'take-out' place!!! With the 'wall' separating the condo and pool from our unit, you're close to evreything but far enough away if you need to be. If you want to 'lay out' and read, un-disturbed then suddenly you want a drink, you are right there, you don't have to 'trapse' upstairs! Location, Location, Location!

Perfect location, relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

From the moment my husband and I arrived, we knew we'd chosen the right place for our stay. We recently spent 4 wonderful weeks at this condo, with our adult children and their spouses joining us for 2 different weeks. We were all quite comfortable, but as usual, we spent most of our time out and about. The Lanai was perfect, and is really only steps from the BBQ, pool and ocean. The view is amazing. We enjoyed breakfast on the lanai as well as most of our evenings while listening to the waves crashing, whale and turtle watching and also the occasional visits from spinner dolphins. You'll find the closet is well stocked with snorkel gear, boogie boards, beach chairs and coolers. The location was just what we were looking for. Location is so great as it is close to grocery stores, restaurants, farmers markets, shopping and so much more. The grounds were kept very clean, and Tim the manager always friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay here again and looking forward to another extended stay. Thank you Mary for your help with our booking and every need. Aloha!

Clean, well maintained, great location, 5 steps out the door to a grill, 12 steps off the porch to a lounge chair right on the water. I had an issue with the cable TV and got a call back and fix within a half hour. Terrific ocean and island view, nice kitchen, a bargain price for what you get. I'll be back

Beautiful location, great owner, beautiful sunsets

  • 4 of 5

This unit is right on the ocean, beautiful views of Molokai, and stunning sunsets. Though it could use some updating, it was clean and well-maintained. Negative reviews that we read are gross exaggerations. We found that all the amenities worked as described.

The owner is responsive, helpful and clearly cared about our experience. For the price we paid, this was a good value. Though we wish that there was air conditioning (apparently not permitted in the complex) during the hottest time of the summer, we spent our days out and about around the island, not sitting in the condo. We used the barbecue almost every night so we wouldn't have to use the oven and the pool many, many times a day.

Overall, it's a good value for your money. We'd stay there again.

My husband and I just returned from our first trip to Maui and we loved the location of the condo--we could not believe that it was so close to the ocean! It was a perfect view and being on the ground level was very convenient with easy access to the pool and beach. We absolutely loved the peace and quiet of this location and the Kahana area in general. The condo was clean and was as described. I had an issue with booking and Ralph was very helpful when I called, he was also very accommodating as our flight did not leave until late at night and he let us stay around for a little while. A negative review was recently left that mentioned cockroaches, my husband and I made a comment during our stay that we were surprised that there weren't bugs on Maui so I am not sure how we missed the cockroaches but there were absolutely none at all during our stay. We enjoyed Maui Brewing Company and my husband loved getting take out from China Boat which is actually right across the street. The manager stopped and spoke with my husband on the last day of our stay and was very friendly and enjoyable to talk to. The grounds are very well maintained. We will definitely be back!

Dirty + Roach filled + Broken down/old furniture = Kahana Reef Property

  • 1 of 5

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED THAT YOU LOOK ELSEWHERE!!! Extremely dirty and unmaintained condo, my wife was unable to sleep most nights as she had a cockroach crawl on her in bed the first night. When we would get up in the middle of the night for some water in the kitchen we'd flip on the kitchen light (which only worked 50% of the time) the roaches would all scatter into the cabinets and cracks......even for me this was really too much to handle. We cleaned every plate and every glass before we used it and kept ALL FOOD in the refrigerator, even food that was not appropriate to keep in the frig like chips and cookies etc as we were scared all the roaches would get in them. Condo needs to be COMPLETELY renovated and be exterminated for a week. If you overlook all the dirt and cockroaches, the condo furniture outside which is where you REALLY wanted to hang out away from the bugs and dirt was ALL BROKEN DOWN. There were 6 chairs on the patio and 4 of them were COMPLETELY unsafe to use as you would go through the cloth seats, the other two were so incredibly dirty you didn't want to dare sit on them!

Of all the property reviews I've done this is my first negative one I've ever written but I feel so complied to do so, to warn others that I must post it! The really sad part is, if this owner simply painted, got a good exterminator and replaced the other words SIMPLY CARED I would have given it 2 maybe 3 stars but this condo hasn't been cared about for a really long time! The other REALLY sad part is this condo is booked for the next coming months....I would run for the hills and cancel as SOON AS POSSIBLE!! There are positive reviews on VRBO for this condo but most are 2-5 years old (look at the dates) and any recent posting that are positive MUST be friends or family of the owner as no one could live in these dirty conditions and be positive!

Owner's Response: Dear William, I'm so sorry you had a bad experience. The previous 25 travelers must be all wrong, including the people that stayed the following week after you stayed, who wrote a nice review. The condo is sprayed monthly, and even though the building has been going through renovations, our place is bug free. I never heard a negative word from you when you stayed there? For the few people, over the past 8 years, who have complained, I have credited them their money back. I just get one great review after another, and then you. I have people who stay here for 2 and 3 months at time, and can wait to get back here. I have a great maid service, and she is very conscientious! I question the validity of your comments. For all future travelers, please read all the reviews. Maybe you just had a bad week?

relaxing place in Maui

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for 9 days at the place, the views are great, ocean is a few steps away, you can have your meals in the lanai, watching and listening to the ocean.

Bed was comfortable. There is plenty of snorkels, boogie boards, small ice chest to go out and explore

The kitchen is well equipped with everything needed to cook meals in the condo, also there is a grill right next to the condo that we used.
