Maui Condo Rental Photos and Description

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 unit boasts new cabinets, granite counters and stainless appliances. The artwork of renowned photographer Peter Lik adorns the walls. We have recently added a new La-Z-Boy twin sleeper chair to add accommodations for three and additional seating.

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 beach in the quiet neighborhood of Kahana, 10 minutes north of the exciting town of Lahaina. In addition to the beach, 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.

Why Todd Christenson chose Maui

On the beach! 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.

Perfect Stay

  • 5 of 5

I have rented many apartments and condos. I loved staying st Todd's condo. It was very clean and comfortable. The kitchen was very well stocked to make any meal you wished. The dishes were Fiesta Ware as were the cutting knifes and kitchen towels. The pots and pans were in very good condition and plenty of zrubbermaid to store left overs.

The bathroom towels were very soft which I really appreciated. There were plenty of towels and nice large beach towels. Two coolers to take to the beach, two talk beach chairs, snorkeling equipment and two tennis rackets and tennis balls. The washer and dryer in unit was also a bonus.

The ocean view from the bed was magical to wake up to. The king bed was very comfortable the mattress are very high quality. The flatscreen TV satellite had every station I cared to watch. The Wi-Fi worked perfectly and was very fast. Good night have a flashlight on and very nice books guides on Maui.

The lanai had very nice furniture. There was a high table with two high chairs where I ate my meals. There was also a very comfortable chair with ottoman to relax on and take in the breath taking ocean views and sunsets.

The condo far surpassed all my expectations. There is also a cabana at the pool that makes cocktails and food. This is one of the most lovely areas on the island you will not be sorry staying here. I definitely suggest going to the gazebo restaurant there banana macadamia nut pancakes with coconut syrup are to die for. I suggest getting an order of fried rice to go as a side dish for dinner with some teriyaki steak you can purchase at any local market. It's the best fried rice I have ever tasted. It has a beautiful ocean view and all the food is delicious. There are communal barbecues down by the pool . Todd was a pleasure to rent from enjoy your stay!

Perfect vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation in Maui, and the condo couldn't have been more perfect. We enjoyed great meals at restaurants within walking distance. The lanai was great for enjoying the ocean view and breezes as we ate our breakfast or rested from a busy day. The condo has a fully equipped kitchen and we even enjoyed snorkeling with the equipment provided. Todd, the owner couldn't have been more gracious and accomodating.

We will definitely love staying here again if our travels take us to Maui. Thank you.

overall wonderful stay in Kahana

  • 5 of 5

I rented this studio in Kahana for a long weekend getaway from O'ahu. This part of the island is my favorite, and this condo is in a great location. It's perfect if you fly into Kapalua Airport - less than a 10 minute drive.

Loved hanging out on the lanai for morning coffee or an evening meal, especially since the whales were still in town. Unfortunately we discovered the binoculars in the nightstand as we were leaving (glad we had our own though). Oops!

We didn't eat many meals at the condo, but the kitchen appeared to be well-equipped. I did have an unfortunate near-miss with a broken bread knife that broke off and almost landed on my foot. Todd assured it would be replaced immediately.

It was great having a washer and dryer in the unit, and there was a small amount of laundry soap too. Keyless door was fabulous...I tend to lose things so this was such a relief. The little cooler, beach towels, and chairs (which seem to be well-loved) were great to have to take to the beach; also came in handy for our day on Lana'i island. The location of the unit is directly across from the stairwell, which at times was a bit noisy. But I live near Waikiki, so by comparison it was quiet. :~)

The process of booking and even extending my stay an extra day was easy, and Todd responded to emails in a timely manner. And thanks again for letting us check-in early...that gave us extra time in the water - yeah! All-in-all a smooth and positive experience, and we had a wonderful stay at your condo. Mahalo for sharing your little slice of paradise with us!

Perfect location, real attention to detail!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed five nights at this spacious studio condo, which was perfect for the two of us. Stocked with just the right kitchen implements and equipment, and neatly arranged, the kitchen featured a full size stove, refrigerator with ice maker, microwave, and even garbage disposal! Very thoughtful touches included beach chairs, beach towels, coolers, detergent for the washer (yes, there is a convenient washer and dryer in the condo itself!), a hair dryer AND curling iron, three sizes of wine glasses, etc. lots of nice, extra towels. and the owner even supplied us with a small bag of Kona coffee! The bed, a king, was restful, the balcony a perfect p,ace for all our meals, cocktail hour, and whale watching. This is a well-manicured, quiet building complex, with a fitness center, and swimming pool. Right on the ocean! Aloha!

Wonderful value for the money !! Would love to stay there again!!

  • 4 of 5

The property itself has a concierge, a nice pool, a gym, barbecue grills and a snack shack. The facility and parking were certainly adequate. The condo itself made our stay wonderful. The king sized bed was very comfortable, we had black out shades, a great kitchen, a table and chairs on the lanai and a stackable washer/dryer. I really enjoyed having the ability to make coffee and breakfast every day. We also had a cooler with reusable ice blocks to pack for day trips. I have been to Hawaii 5 times but this was the first time I used a VRBO condo. I will only use a VRBO condo again! For the money, it was such a great value and made for a great experience!
