Oceanfront Resort Condo For That Perfect Getaway On Kahana Beach!

Picture falling asleep to the sound of the surf and waking to a view of the island of Molokai from the comfort of your king sized bed. The spacious lanai provides the perfect spot for a romantic dinner or a sunset cocktail. Unlike many Maui condos, our unit is fully air-conditioned, however you will find that the natural breezes keep it quite cool.

With a fully renovated kitchen and bath, our unit provides a modern, comfortable retreat after a long day of sightseeing or beachgoing. We have spared no expense to equip our unit with all of the amenities you will need for a relaxing vacation and stocked the kitchen with every possible gadget for that gourmet meal. The kitchen boasts new cabinets, granite counters and stainless appliances. The artwork of renowned photographer Peter Lik and local artists adorns the walls. We have recently added a new La-Z-Boy twin sleeper chair to add accommodations for three and additional seating. The spa-like bath was retiled in an ultramodern style in Fall 2016 and is worthy of a high end resort.

When you are not out enjoying Maui’s attractions, you will find free WiFi, a high-definition cable TV and DVD/blue ray player.

The popular Royal Kahana resort in West Maui is situated right on the ocean in the quiet neighborhood of Kahana, 10 minutes north of the exciting town of Lahaina. The complex has numerous amenities, including a heated pool, gym, tennis courts, and a full time concierge. Snacks, smoothies and coffee drinks are available at the poolside cabana.

Cooler than Lahaina, and drier than Kapalua, Kahana provides a perfect base for exploring the island and easy access to town and to all of west Maui’s famous beaches. Within a few minutes walk you will find numerous restaurants and shops, with many others just a short drive away. The nearest full supermarket is within a 2 minute drive. Three days a week you will find fresh local produce, coffee and pastries at the nearby Honokowai farmers market.

If you desire a larger, two-bedroom accommodation, please look at our other unit VRBO# 308972.

About Todd Christenson

We first visited Maui in 2011. The island is a perfect counterpoint to our hectic lives in DC! In 2014 we were delighted at the opportunity to own this fantastic oceanfront unit. Fully renovated, with a beautiful view of the Pacific Ocean and the island of Molokai, it was exactly what we were looking for. Since then, we've added some personal touches to make it our own.

Todd Christenson purchased this condo in 2014

Why Todd Christenson chose Maui

Ocean views! That's what it's all about! Convenient as well to downtown Lahaina, surfing, snorkeling, or just enjoying the natural wonders of Maui!

What makes this condo unique

Close to Lahaina and yet it's peaceful and the quiet is only broken by the sounds of the ocean.

Great place to stay

No complaints, place was nicely updated and included lots of extras. Made great use of the beach items. I would without hesitation stay here again if I was coming back to Maui.

ABSOLUTELY PERFECT!!!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned home from spending 7 nights at Todd's place. We can not say enough about how perfect and absolutely wonderful this place was. The view was breathtaking, woke several mornings to rainbows. The space was well thought out and provides you with everything you will need. The entire place is decorated very current and modern with amazing local artwork throughout to enjoy. The bathroom was awesome. You can tell the shower was recently updated and has a handheld and rain shower option, was very nice. The entire unit was very clean and well maintained. Not only can you cook inside, you have the option to use the outdoor grills. We cooked steaks poolside (great pool) one night, was super fun. The staff was super friendly at all times. Enjoyed the workout room several mornings. Within walking distance to great places to eat, shop and a convenience store. It was hard to leave!!! We look forward to returning to Maui and will definitely see if this place is available when we do as is a must return!!!

Perfect for us

  • 5 of 5

The studio was the perfect size for two people, clean, and well-maintained. We enjoyed the view from the lanai, and appreciated the suggestions for dining and activities written left by previous guests in the guestbook. You won't regret making this place your home base for your Maui adventures.

Very nice stay!

  • 3 of 5

The owner's were great as was the unit we stayed in. It was fully stocked and very nice. We had a lovely view from the lanai too! We had no hot water the night we arrived, the owner refunded us the entire night which was nice. The workout room was not open the first morning which was disappointing and there were no nets on the tennis courts. Overall it is a great unit in an aging complex. There were a lot of repairs being done to the pool area while we were there. We loved having key coded doors! That was awesome! There is no hot tub which was a bummer :(. Some of the desk staff were incredibly friendly and some did not want to make eye contact. The beach was not the best in Kahana but we did enjoy it nonetheless. Mahalo!!

Nice studio unit.

  • 4 of 5

Very nice unit on the garden side of the building. Well furnished with everything we needed. Unit was clean when we arrived. Nice clean beach, have to walk down from building a little to find a place to sit. Pool area is decent, nice gas grills. Both pool and grills cleaned daily.
