Overview

Lahaina Condo Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath Ground Floor Ocean Front Condo. Steps to water!

This incredible 1 bedroom, newly renovated condo comes completely outfitted with every item you need to enjoy paradise! We have boogie boards, coolers, chairs and beach towels ready for your stay. The comfortable (owner-tested) pull out couch creates extra room. WIFI and free long distance within the US are provided.

The complex is quiet with only 3, 4 story buildings so no fighting for lounge chairs! Enjoy a swim in the beach located directly to the right of the complex, or relax by the warm solar heated pool.

Awesome views for Molokai and Lanai can be enjoyed from your own private lanai. Enjoy whale watching at Kahana Reef resort from April to December. They cross right in front of the complex as they pass through the channel! And don’t forget to take a walk on the sea wall at Kahana to see the turtles that come to feed there inside the reef. At Kahana you have a front row seat to everything! Being in a ground floor unit allows for quick access to the sea wall so that you don’t miss a thing!

Spend the days exploring some of the best beaches and golfing in Maui from this centrally located condo. There are also lots of restaurants close by within walking distance if you don’t want to use a few of the BBQs located on the property. Historic Lahaina Town and Whalers Village Shopping Center are also just minutes away by car.

**we employ an on-island management company for your peace of mind to address any concerns you may have during your stay. I am also always available to help when I can via email or phone. I understand that flight times are not always the best leaving Maui, while we love the extra time at the beach, it's tough with no where to freshen up prior to your flight! I will do my best to accommodate your requests for late check-outs if I have no one checking in on the day you are checking out. Please just ask!

About Nicole & Steve

Steve and I (Nicole) are from Calgary, Alberta. We decided to buy a condo in Maui as we have been several times and both love everything Maui has to offer, especially the weather! We find coming to Maui incredibly relaxing and enjoyable. We hope to retire here one day but in the meantime will just continue to enjoy it when we get the chance! We wanted to give other people a chance to get to know Maui like we have and decided to rent out our condo. Out of all the places we have traveled, Maui stays our favorite. We hope you enjoy it and everything is what you hoped for!

Nicole & Steve purchased this condo in 2013

Why Nicole & Steve chose Maui

Any time we have been to Maui, we have stayed in this area and so we thought this was the best place for us to buy a condo. It has access to all of the amenities we could want, it's close to fabulous beaches and it has a small town vibe which we love. Steve and I love having a ground floor unit anywhere we go. We like the option of opening up the door and walking to the BBQ area, or just heading out to sit on the beach. There are no stairs to climb with groceries or all of the necessities you need to go to the beach! So when we found this unit at Kahana Reef, we jumped at it.

What makes this condo unique

We bought this unit sight unseen from pictures and we were not disappointed when we saw it in person! It is even better than we expected. It was beautifully taken care of and had everything we could need. We love the view we have from our lanai door, how close the ocean is that we can listen to it falling asleep. The fact that the complex is smaller and quieter than most complexes was also a main draw for us. The beaches that are close by are some of the best, and you can find really quiet ones. We spend the majority of our time at the beach so this was a perfect choice.

A Beautiful, Peaceful Place

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time at this beautiful condo. The owners kept in touch with us ahead of time, and we found the unit prepared and very clean. The pictures are accurate and representative, except that photos never capture the vibrancy of the setting well enough! The ocean view is spectacular, and the complex is designed so each unit feels like it has its own private slice of view. We enjoyed the grass lawn with chaises, and the convenient community BBQ. The side stairs to the beach make water access easy, and it is nice to have a quiet little beach without the crowds of nearby resorts. This unit was a relaxing and peaceful place to stay!

Amazing Property, everything you want from a trip to paradise

  • 5 of 5

For a week in Hawaii this place has it all, a great view, steps from the beach, and a short drive to great shopping and dining. We enjoyed every minute of our stay. We spent our mornings enjoying breakfast on the lanai enjoying the surf and we watched the sunset over Molokai every night. The kitchen is well stocked and had all the amenities for cooking meals. I really appreciated the welcome binder with relevant information on the complex and local area. I'd give this place an extra star just for that! My only complaint was the lack of A/C. It got a little hot the first two nights, but the last few days, the breeze kicked up and it was much better. Thank you so much for opening your home for us to enjoy, we will definitely return in the future.

A Dream Getaway

  • 5 of 5

There have been a ton of great reviews for the property for good reason! From waking up in the morning and watch the Turtles eating off the Sea Wall to watching the amazing sunsets, everything was very enjoyable. I was impressed with how well equipped the kitchen and that the complex was very quiet at night. It was also very convenient to have items for the beach: beach chair, beach towels and cooler! The location is very ideal with how close it is to awesome snorkeling in Kapalua and shopping in Lahaina. Thank you Steve and Nicole for sharing your lovely Condo!

Property is nice, the construction work in adjacent units ruined vacation

  • 1 of 5

I love Maui, I love this complex, and the unit was very nice, well maintained. Would recommend the unit. Construction in adjacent units ruined vacation.

On the other hand, the construction going on in the units next door was extremely invasive, with wood saws in my hallway, tile saws on the lanai, relaxing and sleeping late were not an option. I gave up trying to read books on the lanai.... I would have appreciated being made aware of the construction before booking, as I would have booked another unit away from the construction. I did not go on vacation, and spend a lot of money to be on a construction site. They were even working in the units over the weekend.

I understand work needs to be done in units, but I believe the owners have a responsibility to let you know ahead of time, so you can make an informed choice to stay in spite of the construction work.

I would stay in this unit again, but next time I will ensure that there is no construction ongoing or planned in adjacent units before booking.

Owner's Response: Hi David - I am really sorry to hear that this was your experience while in Maui. We did not intentionally not disclose that there was construction going on as the construction was supposed to be completed by the 24th of May. So I did not think that it would impact your vacation. Your review is the first I had heard of it extending beyond that date and I wasn't aware of the infringement on our property that would happen, so I apologize because no one wants to spend their vacation listening to that which I totally understand. I've sent through a refund for one night of your stay as an apology. Again, so sorry that this was your experience in Maui. Sincerely, Nicole

Direct Ocean Front
Car: recommended

This condo has been recently renovated, is very clean and the pride of ownership is evident. It is a direct ocean front condo in a small complex. BBQ's are available a few steps from your Lanai. Enjoy a glass of wine and the waves from your lanai while you cook your dinner. It's one bedroom with a queen size bed, and has a pull out bed. This condo comfortably sleeps 4, and we have tested the pull out couch personally and found it very comfortable.

There are so many amenities close by to choose from! From the shops of Kanapali, the town of Lahaina or the beaches of Napili, the options are endless!

Kanapali boasts high end stores, a fabulous golf course and ocean front restaurants. Everything for every price range! Try Leilani's for a happy hour margarita cool down and daily food specials for those of you on a budget, or a fancy dinner at the Sheraton Black Rock Steak & Seafood restaurant. Luau's are also a great attraction. The Hyatt's Drum's of the Pacific Luau is a favorite! Make sure to book early! All of this just a 10 minute drive away.

Head to Lahaina for some outlet shopping, a tour of the Banyan tree and enjoy the roof top patio at Fleetwood's on Front Street or ocean front dining at Bubba Gump's or Jimmy Buffets, to name a few.

Who can forget to mention the snorkeling! So many tours to take, but almost right out your front door there is the best bay to see turtles. Some of the biggest turtles you will ever see snooze in this bay (if turtles snooze)!

For those of you brave enough, the small single lane road to Hanna is a beautiful drive with pit-stops at waterfalls and beautiful scenery a long the way. But beware it takes time, so if you are not up for a day in the car, this might not be for you.

Or just stay put, sit oceanfront at your condo and hope to see some whales go by!
