Fabulous ocean views--exactly what we wanted

  • 4 of 5
Verified Stay

Exactly what we wanted for this trip--close to the water, fabulous ocean views from a wonderful shady lanai. We saw whales in the distance and turtles swimming near the sea wall every day. Beautiful sunsets. Good view of Molokai when it is clear. Nice size unit for two of us. I wished for a king size bed but found the queen bed quite comfortable. Quiet complex (except for the two days they were laying new tile on the lanai next door). Laundry facilities across the street in the clubhouse were useful for a couple of loads. Though we didn't use them the unit was stocked with 2 chairs, an umbrella, swim fins and maybe more (sand toys?). Also there were two beach towels! We also found binoculars in the drawers as we were checking out...wish we had found them sooner. Ocean breezes were nice, it has AC but we didn't use it. We liked the little beach to the south, within walking distance though we like swimming and snorkeling better at other beaches. First time in Kahana--nice little community. Good central location for hubby to play golf at Kapalua and for me to take whale trips out of Lahaina. We did find ourselves driving to Lahaina a lot for restaurants, boat trips, shopping, etc.

Be aware of a couple of possible negatives. The ocean front condos are located between the ocean and the road, literally 5-10 feet from the ocean and perhaps 15-20 feet from the road. Both can be quite noisy. The traffic did not bother me at night, and I enjoyed the sound of the waves but this might be too loud for some. (Waves hitting a sea wall are louder than waves on sand.) Also--there are two "spotlights"/security lights just outside this unit (and the units next door.) The light at night was bothersome to hubby...

The kitchen was well stocked (though we didn't cook a lot). Barbecue and picnic table in common area used by neighbors looked fun. Updated kitchen and bathroom was great.

Love this Place!

  • 5 of 5

I almost don't want to write a good review, because it means people will learn about our secret oasis on Maui. We LOVE Maui and this place. First I have to say that we were there Thanksgiving day 2015 (not 2016 - I'm just slow with reviews) for a week (Left the snow storm behind).

Michael and Jack were pleasant and helpful through the entire process of booking the reservation, providing helpful information and welcoming us with incredible hospitality...making it a holiday (and anniversary trip) to remember. The place was just remodeled at the time of our stay... beautifully decorated, clean and comfortable. We had everything we needed at our finger tips (e.g. kitchen and beach items...). A quick trip to Costco / Grocery store is recommended, as purchasing every meal out can get expensive. And...making a trip to the winery in the beginning of your a nice idea so you can enjoy some local wine at the condo.

The view is what has our heart and the waves at night calm our minds. Maui is worth exploring all parts of the island. At times, it is hard to venture out on the island because the view from the room is so breathtaking...turtle watching and sunset viewing at its finest. Unfortunately we didn't see any whales around this time (just a little too early in the season), but I do know from past experiences... you can see them from the balconies once they have arrived. On our last day we were sent off with a beautiful rainbow from the lanai.

Thank you again Michael and Jack for making our trip a wonderful memory. We so look forward to a future visit. (sorry for our delayed review)

CA couple

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing condo and fun trip! It was great to have beach towel and chairs ready for us to use. The kitchen had all that we needed. So much better than a hotel. Michael and Jack were so helpful and informative. We stayed for 7 days and spent every evening at the condo to enjoy the turtles and sunsets. Very comfortable and clean. We will defiantly recommend to

We just got home from spending 11 nights here and it was more than amazing! The view is amazing all day long but I loved waking up to it and sitting out on the lanai having a glass of wine to watch the sunset. We saw so many turtles and on our last day we saw a baby one with 3 very large ones - pretty nice send off :) The condo is so comfortable and has everything in it you could need. It feels like home.. so that made it pretty hard to leave.. but we will be back! Thank you so much Jack & Michael for taking such good care of your property and being such great people to work with.

Best views and Great Condo

  • 5 of 5

My family and I recently stayed here for a family vacation. The views and location can't be beat. Our experience with Jack and Michael were top notch and I would easily recommend this property to anyone. The place is well appointed and comes stocked with everything you need from cooking supplies to beach toys.The daily visits from the sea turtles were definitely the perfect way to begin and end our days.

You found THE spot. Book this now!

  • 5 of 5

First, Jack & Michael are ideal property managers; exactly the type of owners you pray to the vacation-Gods for when booking a privately owned vacation rental. Perhaps it's because they treat the whole process as a business... and I mean that in the best possible way. I forgot to ask if they'd previously worked in the travel industry, but they are true professionals in the realm of Hospitality! ...on top of just being nice, considerate people!

Secondly, with this condo, they've created a little oasis for your vacation joy! It's beautifully appointed, has AC, and shows a level of guest consideration that few property owners (let alone hotels) ever do... right down to the vast collection of Hawaiian music prepped & ready for your enjoyment on their iPod-connected stereo, which also has not just an audio-input for your own phone's music collection, but even the friggin' audio cable sitting there to facilitate it. Impressive, guys!

As for the location, my wife & I could honestly gush about the view for every word of this review, but I'll let their photos speak to this point; other than to say that it's even better than it looks! Side note: don't miss the practically private beach 880ft up the road.

A couple quick heads-up (NOT negatives, just considerations)...

Tell the guys your property size needs/expectations to make sure this specific condo is appropriate (if not, I wouldn't be surprised if they have another that'll work for you). It's not a huge place; PERFECT for the 2 of us and smartly laid out, down to the beautiful kitchen & bar and ideal use of bathroom space... but if we had kids, it wouldn't have been big/private enough [for us], though they do have a nice pull-out sofa that might do the trick for some families. That said, the patio is surprisingly spacious. Along with the perfect little bar area and large connecting sliding-glass door, you can easily host another couple for a lovely patio dinner-party... while you show-off that your view is 200% better than whatever they see from their overpriced Four Seasons room :)

Next point to consider... bed/mattress preference. I prefer an overly plush bed; softer than most people like. This bed has a quality mattress, a pillow-top mattress pad [I believe], and was as or more comfy than most hotels... but was still a bit firm for me. That said, I'd re-book in a heartbeat and just snag an extra mattress pad from one of the stores in Lahania down the street.

To sum up... book it ASAP!!
