Maui Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

ALOHA and thank you for considering our home for your Maui vacation! Our condo was completely renovated in Dec. 2011 and we hope you like what we've done.

Just 10 feet from the ocean and located on the second floor, you will not be disappointed! Upon entering the condo, you will be drawn immediately to our spacious lanai (balcony). The panoramic views of Moloka'i, Lana'i and the ocean are amazing! The sandy beach in Kahana is directly adjacent to the condo and provides excellent swimming, snorkeling and sunbathing.

Once you're able to pull yourself from the outside view (and the turtles that feed directly below our condo), the interior is also warm and inviting. The calm, modern setting is perfect for curling up on the couch in the cozy, living area. Relax while reading a book, catching up on the latest news or spending a romantic evening watching the sun go down.

When it's time to go to sleep, the comfortable king-size bed is not far away. Open all the windows to allow the sound of the ocean waves and breezes lull you to sleep. When you awaken feeling rested and refreshed, the ocean will be the first thing you see in the morning.

Our fully-equipped, modern kitchen and bathroom with full tub and shower have all the conveniences of home. The thought of staying in a hotel will become a thing of the past.

Pohailani is located in quiet Kahana, nestled between the bustling resorts of Ka'anapali and Kapalua. Within walking distance, you will find fine restaurants and shopping in the Kahana Gateway Center. If you prefer other options, you're only a short drive to Kapalua, Napili, Ka'anapali or Lahaina. Famous beaches, world-class golf courses, Whaler's Village, a farmers' market, grocery stores and other amenities are just minutes away.

We hope you will love our home as much as we do and come back year after year! Mahalo!!

About The Owner

We fell in love with Maui when we spent our honeymoon here and have returned to Hawaii almost every year since then. We have vacationed on other islands but Maui was always our favorite. Our dream was to someday own a 'little piece of paradise' on Maui and finally, we have achieved that dream! We have renovated our condo to feel as warm and welcoming as our own home and we are very excited to be able to share our condo with you!

The Owner purchased this condo in 2011

Why The Owner chose Maui

We had to have a place where the view was oceanfront - no exceptions! Kahana was the perfect location for us because it is between the resorts of Ka'anapali and Kapalua (we love to golf) and a 15-minute drive to Lahaina. In Kahana, you are able to enjoy the relaxed pace of island living without sacrificing conveniences.

What makes this condo unique

You get to experience some of the most incredible things Maui has to offer without leaving your room - unobstructed views of Moloka'i & Lana'i, picturesque sunsets, the sound of the ocean, the breeze on your face and an overall feeling of serenity every day! We are also one of the few units in our complex, on the ocean, that has a washer and dryer in our condo!!

Great Oceanfront Condo

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for 10 nights from the end of May to the beginning of June. The condo is in a great location: quiet area, right on the ocean and amazing views of the other islands. The bed is very comfortable and the A/C was a big help at night. The condo is well stocked with beach gear, kitchen utensils, tennis gear and the washer and dryer were a big plus. As others have mentioned, the parking spot is hard to get out of and sometimes others were parked there and we had to kick them out. We miss watching the turtles feed on the rocks everyday and relaxing on the lanai.

The ocean is your backyard

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay. It was private, and a perfect location to get to all the amazing places that Maui has to offer. We had daily visitors of turtles eating off the rocks right below. We had a great time.

Cozy and welcoming

  • 4 of 5

The rental property was super cozy. Everything you need was provided: towels, dishes, utensils, washer and dryer. The entire room was very clean and welcoming, I really enjoyed adding to the guest book!

My only complaint was more due to timing: there was maintenance and pest control that resulted in us having to stay in longer on a day we had plans so the site managers could figure out an exterior lighting issue or spray the building.

Directly on the water exactly what we wanted

  • 4 of 5

Direct ocean front, you almost get wet from tho waves on your lanai. EVERYTHING you need including beach chairs umbrella, cooler and lots of towels. Parking spot is not great, hard to get in and out of and no elevator so would not be good for someone unable to do steps. Overall a great place and we would go back.

A four & half

  • 4 of 5

Very well maintained, exceptional view, whales every day, turtles and Molokai. Owners responded immediately to any questions or concerns that we had. Found the condo absolutely wonderful and relaxing. Good location, many daily needs could be met within walking distance. We are hoping to return in the future.

This property was all it was described as and more. It was clean, comfortable, and modern with all the conveniences of home, and the view....SPECTACULAR!! We sat on the lanai every evening as the the sun went down and watched some super energetic paddle boarder neighbours surf and the whales...they were everywhere! Joe and Naomi were super fast at responding to any questions we had and the area was quiet. FYI the beach next door to the condo has been washed away but no worries, there are public beaches in both directions 5 minutes away. The beach towels provided were big and fluffy and the beach chairs are great quality. We enjoyed our take out meal from the Chinese restaurant across the street to the left and had a mediocre meal at the Maui Brewing Company, also a quick walk up the road to the right of the condo and up the hill. Eating out on Maui is extremely expensive so we took advantage of the kitchen in the unit for breakfast and lunch. If desperate, there is a MacDonalds just around the corner and up the hill as well. When we were looking for some extra pampering at the beach, we drove to Ka'anapali and rented a cabana at the Hyatt Residence for $100 US. I'm sure there were cheaper spots (a previous trip advisor mentioned the Sheraton) but we found the perfect free parking spot and were unwilling to give it up! The cabana came with all the towels we wanted, food and beverage service (obviously for a charge) a free fruit tray and they replenished a water jug every hour. Our Hyatt experience that day was still considerably more economical and had better service than that of the Waldorf Astoria Grand Wailea where we stayed later in the week for a conference. We are super happy to recommend this property on Trip Advisor! *****

Enjoy whale watching (in season), turtles and the occasional manta rays swimming directly in front of the condo. Take a leisurely stroll or go sunbathing, swimming or snorkeling at Kahana Beach. You're only a short walk away to fine dining and casual local restaurants!
