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!

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 furniture....in 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!

Fun filled vacation.

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful family vacation in Kahana. Condo was clean and well maintained, and we enjoyed the easy access to the pool and beach. Seeing lots of whales from patio and sea turtles in late afternoon were nice surprises and highlights. Loved the slower pace in Kahana area, but higher activity resort areas were easily accessible.

Owner's Response: Thanks Mike P., I said it was the best location in the complex. And thanks very much for the "heads up" on your new favorite Sushi place, Miso Phat, a 5 minute walk from our condo! Aloha!

Fantastic Stay

  • 5 of 5

My family (including two young children) just finished a wonderful stay at the Kahana Reef condo. It was perfect for us, with a lovely kitchen, an incredibly comfortable bed, and a nice set of amenities (including two flat screen TVs). The condo is in a perfect location, right on the ocean and next to the pool and bbq. We sat each morning on the lanai and watched the whales and turtles frolicking in the waves. We also used the pool each afternoon, and the kids played at the little beach up the path. We met several other families and couples in the complex (from retirees to young families with children) and were able to socialize when we felt like it. It was a fantastic trip, made even more special by staying in this beautiful and comfortable condo. We will definitely be back. Thank you, Ralph, for making our stay so enjoyable.

Steps from the Ocean, 25 year Romantic Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This Kahana Condo location is perfect, if you don't want to be staying in a tourist row of resorts. The Kahana reef condo's sets on a quiet street along the beautiful Ocean. It was great to take early morning walks.

You can walk to a "MickeyD's" and a nice sports bar called the "Maui Brewing Co". It's about 13 minutes drive north of Front Street, where it's loaded with bars and places to eat and shop.

The Condo was described perfect by Ralph the owner. It's not a fancy Resort with 24/7 maid service! Your on your own and that's what made this location perfect. You can BBQ right off the Lanai and steps to the pool! The Kitchen was small but worked since your on Vacation. We thought the Price was Right for our Vacation. I would suggest a couples only condo, however I could see putting a couple of small children on the couch.

We will be back! It was perfect Vacation!
