Overview

Maui Condo Rental Photos and Description

Master bedroom w/king bed, 2nd loft bedroom with queen bed, full kitchen, lanai

Super clean, bright, top floor apartment with spectacular Ocean Views across from Kahana Beach.

Grab a drink and relax on your lanai, watch the surfers at the S-Turns surf break, enjoy beautiful rainbows, spectacular sunsets and from Christmas through April you can even watch the humpback whales playing in the Pacific Ocean.

Separate master bedroom with a king size bed ('Westin Heavenly Bed'), second bedroom in the loft over the living room with a comfortable queen size bed. Fully equipped kitchen. This unit is ideal for 2- 4 people. Not ideal for small children due to the second bed being in the loft. Only one bathroom (with a large shower stall, no tub).

Tile floor throughout the hallway, kitchen, bathroom and living room and wood/laminate floors in the bedroom & loft make this a very clean & bright unit. Large flat screen TV with DVD player, free high speed Wifi Internet.

The Kahana Villas offer a swimming pool, a hot tub and a tennis court (all free for you to enjoy). We provide beach equipment (beach towels, snorkel masks, beach chairs, boogie board, cooler) as well as tennis racquets and balls.

The sandy Kahana Beach is right across the street. This beach is great for swimming, relaxing & playing. There is even a coral reef for snorkeling, where you can see turtles pretty much every day. Restaurants, a brew pub and bars, shops and a coin operated laundry (even a bank and a McDonald's) are all within an easy 5 minute walk.

This unit is located ideally on the top floor and away from both roads, affording full privacy and offering spectacular Ocean Views.

The Kahana Villas are a mixed use apartment complex with fully legal vacation rental units and owner residents, providing many resort amenities, but with a less touristy feel. All state taxes are paid under Hawaii State Tax ID W40878658-01.

About Chris Weininger

We grew up in Germany. After studying Tourism at the University of Applied Science in Munich, we moved to Hawaii and instantly fell in love with it. We have lived on Maui for 18 years now and can not think of any place we'd rather live.

Chris Weininger purchased this condo in 2013

Why Chris Weininger chose Maui

We bought our own apartment at Kahana Villa in 2001 and like it so much here that we bought this second unit to share with our friends & family AND YOU!

Kahana Villas is a mix of owners, long term tenants and vacation rental units, combining the amenities of a resort (beach, pool, hot tub, tennis court) with the advantages and feel of having your own home rather than just a hotel room.

What makes this condo unique

Enjoy spectacular Ocean Views at a Garden View rate! The extra bedroom in the loft makes this ideal for 3 or 4 guests, but it's so affordably priced that it's a also great option for just two guests.

Fantastic! 5 star!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 stayed in this unit in March 2016 and it was nothing short of fantastic. Perfectly clean, nicely appointed and a great view of the ocean to boot. It was nice to eat breakfast on the lanai watching the early morning surfers AND the majestic humpback whales. Wow! All from the comfort of the condo! We also found it to be very conveniently located with lots of amenities very close by (check out Maui Brewing Company for casual fair and good beer!). It's also only 10 minutes away from the historic whaling town of Lahaina.

I must also commend Chris for his outstanding service. Thanks to him, we were well prepared prior to arrival and found his informational binder in the condo tremendously helpful. Also promptly answered a couple of questions during the stay.

Would happily recommend not only this unit but also highly recommend Chris - top shelf guy who understands what good customer service is all about.

Hope to return.

Excellent location and great customer service from the owner. This was our first time to Maui and after days of exploring we decided that Kahana was our favorite area to stay, we will absolutely be back.

Nice getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Kahana Villa for a week. Very nice location, pretty quiet area, close to the beach as well as to a convenience store and a few restaurants. Our apartment was very clean, comfortable and had everything we needed, so it was pleasant to stay at. Thanks Chris!

Thankful that we found this wonderful condo

  • 5 of 5

We spent our Thanksgiving break here and it couldn't have been better!

The condo is very comfortable and well appointed with everything needed to enjoy our time on Maui. The beach towels and snorkel equipment, beach chairs, boogie boards and tennis racquets were appreciated, as these are rarely found in rental units. Chris has provided a special home away from home and really goes above and beyond in making sure that every detail before, during, and after your stay is thought of.

Owner's Response: Mahalo for the 5 star review and the compliment for my service. I tend to book places myself where I get quick and thorough responses and feel like the host cares, so that's the experience I thrive to offer. Of course it helps that we have such a nice view and are in such a perfect location. We are looking forward to seeing you again on your next trip to Maui!

Great location very clean

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this unit for 8 days and absolutely loved it!! Very clean and comfortable. Great view of the ocean. The unit had everything we needed for cooking meals. No AC but the breeze keeps the unit cool. Chris is very helpful and always quick to respond to my messages. When we come back to Maui we will be staying here again!!

Owner's Response: Mahalo for your nice review. I am glad to hear you will be staying at our place again when you return to Maui. Thanks for noticing the great work our cleaners do and the fast and personal service I try to offer. And aren't we lucky how cool the place stays without having to run an air conditioner? A hui hou!

4.5 Stars - Very, very nice apartment. Great view. Nice amenities.

  • 4 of 5

This apartment worked out really well for our family of 4 (kids = 9 & 11). Kids shared the queen bed in the loft. Wife and I had the downstairs bedroom in the front of the unit. There is no AC which is clearly stated. Chris advised the breeze would help keep unit cool. And it most certainly did. In fact you kind of need to be careful with where you leave things as the breeze can be quite strong. We kept the front door open most of the time while we were in the apartment (except when sleeping). Free parking (almost unheard of on Maui) was a very nice perk. The pool and hot tub worked out great. I really wanted to play tennis but after doing beach and activities all day long I ran out of gas. (The tennis courts and the tennis rackets in the apartment looked more than adequate). The view from the lanai was spectacular. The lanai is not very deep but it is a nice size and the table and chairs make it very usable. The bathroom was fine and is probably the only reason I rated 4.5 stars (instead of 5). The shower is a little rough around the edges. And because it sets back off the hallway it does not get the breeze so it can get stuffy. It is 100% functional and water pressure/temperature was good. You will want to minimize toiletries around the vanity as space is limited. Kitchen was good size and fully functional. I think we had all the pots, pans, plates, etc we needed. We cooked a little (pasta, breakfast stuff but nothing real big. NOTE: 2 Very nice BBQ's @ pool that are free to use). Another added bonus was the cooler, boogie boards and other gear left in the closet. We used the cooler 1 day and used the boogie boards at least a couple days. Location is great. We did walk to the beach across the street. I saw a turtle there and there is a sign indicating turtles frequent the area. Chris was very, very helpful and very timely with communication. (Thanks, Chris!). My bottom line: I would stay here again without question. Great value.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your nice and detailed review. I'm glad you enjoyed our apartment, the view (isn't it awesome?), the pool, the BBQ, the beach, the turtles and everything else Maui has to offer. I guess you'll have to come back to use the tennis courts... Yes, we are very lucky in Kahana on the top floor that we get nice breezes pretty much all the time, I agree there is really no need for AC even in summer. Thank you also for your note regarding space on the vanity. I will find some shelves or a small dresser to put next to the vanity to provide extra space for toiletries. Glad to hear you want to stay with us again when you return to Maui. We are looking forward to welcoming you again. A hui Hou!

Maui has been voted as the best island in the world for the 19th year in a row by the Conde Nast Traveler magazine. We agree. A tropical paradise combined with the conveniences of it being part of the USA, it's the best of both worlds!

We like the WEST SIDE of Maui the best, because it combines good weather, nice beaches, the proximity to the really cute town of Lahaina and the best views of the sunset.

KAHANA is about 10 minutes north of Lahaina and it is a little less touristy, but offers all the conveniences like a beach, shops, restaurants, bars, a bank etc. within easy walking distance.
