About the property

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.

Beautiful vacation in paradise

  • 5 of 5

This condo is so perfect! It's clean, well furnished and the kitchen is ready for you to start cooking. We were so close to the ocean we could watch whales and dolphins jumping. How cool is that!

We can't wait to come back. Thank you for the bottle of wine and chocolates.

Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky enough to stay at this beautiful condo 11/9/16 to 11/14/16. It was perfect. The grounds were maintained every day and we had such a safe feeling there. I was able to see turtles out side our door !!!! The condo was well stocked and very clean. I would stay there again if I had the chance. Thank you again Nicole it was perfect !!! Lauri

Relaxing, Romantic & Reckless

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at 114 Kahana Reef from September 28 to October 6, 2016. It was absolutely amazing. We loved everything about the condo. 42 steps to the water and the most perfect sunsets every night. The condo is extremely clean and well stocked. Even though there is no air conditioning, we did not find it too hot. There are multiple fans. Wifi works great, even at the waters edge. We loved seeing the turtles every day right at the sea wall and sending our friends all the pictures. The snorkeling is not the greatest in front of this complex but the water is the perfect temperature to go and take a swim to cool off. Some very cool places to see close to Kahana is the Blowhole, Dragon's Teeth and snorkeling at the Black Rock. The morning sunrise on Haleakala Crater is also a must. We left the condo at 3:30 am and made it there in 2 hours, plenty of time. Be sure to bring a blanket as it is very cold up there. There are so many things to do, I could go on and on but overall we thought this place was great and will definitely be staying there again.

Extrodinary Value In Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at this wonderful property for the second time. Yes, we returned. My review is broken into two parts, the property, and the specific condo unit.

First, Kahana Reef.

This small condo complex consists of 88 units in 3 interconnected 4 story buildings. Most units seem to be about 650 sq. ft. each. The grounds are very well maintained by an on-site manager. You find a clean pool, access to laundry room (about $1.75 in quarters a load) and lots of parking. They supply comfy lounge chairs at the pool and along the seawall that faces the Pacific. Gas BBQ setups are provided to each building. Several hose-off locations and showers are available. You don't have direct sand access (beach) but a stairway, leading off the property to the north leads to the beach. An additional stairway at the south end of the seawall leads down to the ocean. We found bananas and dragon fruit growing on the property of Kahana Reef. This is a pretty low-key property with many residents living here. That makes it safe and well cared for.

The Condo

The owners have made sure that you have all you'll need. You'll be welcomed with a bottle of wine and local chocolates. Comfortable furnishings and direct access to the ocean. We spent almost all of our time on the patio. It has four chairs and a nice table. We drank our coffee and had breakfast on that patio every morning, watching the waves and clouds with occasional rainbows. The kitchen is remodeled and has everything to prepare meals. Thoughtful touches like storage devices for leftovers or prepared food. While it does not have a stocked pantry (use the local farmer's markets) basic spices and items can be found. The bed is more than comfortable. You find all kinds of things in the bedroom closet including beach and snorkel items. No air conditioning but on 95 percent of days in Maui you won't need it. Ceiling fans and some other fans are provided to supplement the breezes when you need it.

Maui is our go to place. This ocean front location fills our need to really relax. You can be assured of a carefree vacation. We absolutely love this place.

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!

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!
