About the property

Live Aloha in my dream home on the sea!!!!!!!!!!! You deserve to vacation here!!

Aloha and welcome to 'Livin the Aloha Dream'. Imagine vacationing on the edge of the ocean! From the lanai, all you see is the ocean, islands of Molokai and Lanai, palm trees, beaches, whales, sea turtles, sailboats, paddle boarders, windsurfers, parasailers, and last but not least rainbows. The magical sound of the waves will be music to your ears as you fall asleep. Watching the sun set between the islands is mesmerizing. Rainbows are breathtaking as the sailboats sail through them. Watching whales breach and spout from the lanai is a sight you will hold in your memory forever.

Kahana is nestled between Kaanapali and Kapalua and only a ten minute drive to Lahaina. There is a beach adjoining the property and there are many restaurants within walking distance including a coffee shop, health food store and farmers market. 'Livin the Aloha Dream' is a private get-away and hidden treasure from the hustle/bustle of the high-end hotels where you can kick back and enjoy your vacation your way - with Aloha!

About Cheryl Caleca

I have considered myself an island girl since I lived on the north shore of Oahu for ten years many moons ago! What a great way to spend my twenties as I attended the University of Hawaii. My quest to see the world after college took me to new jobs in San Francisco and Germany. Returning to the U.S., I worked for an Anheuser-Busch distributor for twenty five years before moving to San Diego to retire on my sailboat. I traveled to many countries including Australia, New Zealand and most of Europe but I always kept coming back to Hawaii for my 'happy place'. Wanting to own a slice of this heavenly island has been a dream of mine all of my life. In 2013 I made my dream a reality and bought this gem of a condo. I completely renovated the whole condo and started from scratch making it my home to someday live in.

I am currently living on my 49' Beneteau sailboat in San Diego and plan to vacation here in Maui several times a year during my retirement. To me, there is nothing in the whole world better than rejuvenating my Aloha Spirit and Livin the Aloha Dream in this heavenly slice of earth.

Cheryl Caleca purchased this condo in 2013

Why Cheryl Caleca chose Lahaina

'Livin the Aloha Dream' is simply what it says ... livin my dream and hopefully livin your dream.

I hope you will chose my amazing condo and live the dream with me a - a dream of a lifetime one dream at a time!!!

What makes this condo unique

This top corner unit is quiet, private and new. As you walk in the door, you will immediately feel a sense of calmness come over you as you go straight to the lanai and awe in wonder of its aqua marine beauty.

The lanai has comfortable seating for four and a dining table and chairs. It has lanai shades to pull down and clip on the rail if the afternoon sun gets too hot for you.

I added a large closet and built in drawers for your clothes. You can just 'move in' for your stay! You don't have to live out of your suitcase and step over your 'stuff'.

Another added feature is a safe for your passport, extra cash and jewelry. It just makes us feel better to lock our valuables away.

A keyless door entry alleviates you carrying a key with you.

A full size refrigerator and stove with oven will allow you to cook at home - only if you want to!

Having a washer/dryer in the unit as well as an air conditioner and dishwasher will make your vacation a real vacation. Who wants to 'rough it' on vacation? Not you!

Overall, I am in love with this unit and know you will be as soon as you see it. Maui No Ka Oi means Maui is the best. My motto is Livin the Aloha Dream No Ka Oi.

A little slice of heaven!

  • 5 of 5

We hated to leave this little oasis. Even though it’s a studio, it’s arranged perfectly and all the furnishings are comfortable, we never felt cramped for space. We spent a lot of time on the lanai, which is quite large and well furnished. We saw whales from afar, sea turtles up close and a monk seal even swam by one day! We liked the assigned parking spot right at the bottom of the stairs, so convenient. Overall, it was a wonderful place to relax and a great home base from which to explore Maui. We hope to return one day.

Do we have to leave???

  • 5 of 5

Loved loved this sweet place...can't get much closer to the ocean than this.. Cheryl's studio is decorated to perfection and has anything you need to cook a small meal to enjoy on the great lanai while watching the local turtles and breeching whales.

Location is great. Nice walk to the farmers market and easy drive to nearby snorkeling beaches. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend anyone stay here!

Bliss on the water.

  • 5 of 5

As others have reviewed, Cheryl's unit is fantastic. We have been going to Maui for 40 years, staying in many condos. Getting any closer to the water is pretty much impossible. Add to that the beautiful space Cheryl has created and you have bliss on the water.

We loved sitting on the lanai watching the whales. So many breaching, and countless spouts. Hearing the waves lap at the seawall, watching the turtles. So many reasons to stay here.

Thank you, Cheryl.

This place was amazing. The place and the view were better than the pictures.

  • 5 of 5

We felt so blessed to stay in such an incredible place with such an incredible view. When we sat on the lanai the ocean was below our feet. One morning we saw 5-10 rainbows in an hour. At night the stars were amazing. It felt very private too. We were on the end of the condo. The location was great because it was away from all the busy resorts but close to some incredible beaches and food. Cheryl gave great suggestions for food and things to do. The place was well stocked. She had all the utensils, pots and pans, paper towels, trash bags, toilet paper, dish soap and sponge, detergent and dryer sheets we needed. We can’t wait to come back to this place and to Maui.
