This is truly a magical place. We arrived 3 days prior to the fires and we had to leave for safety reasons. However, The listing is accurate in every detail. Beautiful views, lots of space, plenty of kitchen supplies, laundry, beach towels, ect. Just bring shower supplies. You will need those. A/C works great, but we enjoyed turning it off and enjoying the breeze and ocean sounds of opening the windows. Truly magical. There are great local shops and small grocery stores within walking and larger ones a short drive away. The ground are well managed and offer a great pool, clean and cut lawns and gardens. Sea turtles can be seen from deck and many other possible sites. We even saw dolphins running with a catamaran. Owner always was in contact when needed and provided great amount of information upon arrival. They were a joy and blessing to work with. I am sure I am overlooking something, but this was a great experience (minus the fire tragedy) and we would absolutely look to reboot and revisit again. Hopefully Maui and it’s people will recover and rebuild quickly.
Great stay. View was fantastic of the sunsets, ocean, boats, and turtles. The condo itself was very clean, the cooking utensils, pots, pans, you name it they were of great quality. The bed and furnishings were comfortable. Dishwasher, laundry washer and dryer, stove, microwave, and refrigerator all very nice.
David provided lots of information about the local area. Restaurant, snorkeling, hiking and beach going ideas. Everything was fantastic and we had zero complaints. We would stay there again for sure. 9th floor was very quiet and perfect to just relax and enjoy.
The condo was a pleasant surprise. It is immaculate and tastefully decorated. We were able to eat 1/3 of our meals at the condo. All the equipment we needed for the beach and excursions is provided. The views/sunsets from the balcony are extraordinary. We plan on returning in the future.
I don't take the time to write reviews, but I feel I need to because Dave and Nancy's condo is absolutely amazing! My wife and I spent a wonderful week in this condo and it has literally everything you need. We have learned over many trips to Hawaii the need to buy garbage bags, toilet paper, laundry soap and other items that you need during your stay in Hawaii. You don't need any of that here! The home is fully stocked with items to cook with, wash your clothes and they even have beach chairs, umbrellas, coolers and body boards to take to the beach. The time and money to rent all these items for a week is just another expenditure you don't have. The condo is maybe 5-10 minutes to the best beaches and snorkeling on Maui. It's important to note, this unit has AC. Don't be fooled by the listings with no AC and claim the "ocean breeze" is enough to cool the place down. We have tried that before and it doesn't work (especially during the summer months.) I didn't see it in the ad, but FYI parking is $15/day at the property. Dave is an amazing host and I can't recommend this place enough. Thank you Dave and Nancy, we will be back!

We stayed 8 days at this property & enjoyed our stay. There was everything you would need & more available. Although Kahana is slightly out from the main tourist area it was only a short & inexpensive bus ride to these areas if you wanted to go, this also made for a nice quite relaxing stay. The bus stopped outside the resort & just across the road is a convenience store & 3 restaurants within a couple of minutes walk. The beach has been washed away in front of the resort but it is easy to get down to the beach but the pool area is also great to spend time at. We did have a small maintenance issue but on contacting David & Nancy they very quickly got this rectified for us which was great. We loved our time sitting on the lanai watching the turtles swimming & the sun setting. We hope to return here some day.
This property is wonderful, clean, very quiet, great ocean view and easy to find. I just turn left at McDonalds make a quick right turn and your there. Highly recommend this condo.
The property is very clean, well stocked kitchen and great location. Only minutes from Lahaina and Ka’anapali! The view off the lanai is the ocean where we watched the sea turtles everyday for two weeks. The bedroom is large and the bed is sooo very comfortable. We were very pleased and will definitely stay there again. Perfect condo for us!
From the moment we made our reservation I had wonderful and helpful communications from our host. David was quick to respond to my (many) questions regarding our stay and how to tailor it to the things we wanted to do and see. His recommendations were so helpful, and our experience wouldn’t have been the same without his knowledge, kindness and generosity! The condo had a view beyond compare and being lulled off to sleep to the sound of the waves was heaven! We had every amenity we needed to enjoy a comfortable stay, and the area of Kahana was perfectly located between Kaanapali and Kapalua. Mahalo David and Nancy for a very memorable week on magical Maui! We will return! Kim and Nancy
Excellent property with a pool, parking and access to the beach. Very homely and everything is provided including things to hang out on the beach. Highly recommended.
We truly enjoyed our stay and the property. It was a 5 star plus for everything from the moment we booked it. The owner was so helpful right from start and their condo was definitely a 5 star plus. It was very clean, organized and it has amazing views. We stayed for 2 weeks with us eloping and Honeymoon as well we couldn't have had a better time or stay with such a great host. Thank you David and Nancy
My husband and I had a wonderful stay here! The condo was conveniently located between all the beaches, has a wonderful view, and a comfortable bed. Although, a car is a must when staying here. Having beach chairs and air conditioning was also a nice touch, as some condos on the island don’t offer either. I can’t thank the hosts, David and Nancy enough, as they were very kind and accommodating. They made several helpful tips and recommendations prior to our stay. Mahalo!
This was our first time in Hawaii and it was full of wonderful memories. Our hosts David and Nancy could not have been more helpful.
David sent information that was so helpful for us to plan our days. They came under several different headings which included -
Pre-Vacation important information / Best Beaches / Dining / Snorkel locations / Whale watching boats they recommended etc.
And it is one thing to get great information but often they came with precise directions and time from the resort, where applicable, by walking or driving. We shopped for groceries from recommendations from our hosts allowing us to be able to have most meals in.
The kitchen is well stocked with all you need for eat in meals. You also have the choice of having a quick Keurig coffee in the morning or a drip coffee if that is your preference.
We were here because we were so interested to go on a whale watching expedition. David recommended one Whale watching company, with a very knowledgeable staff, so we truly loved seeing these majestic sea creatures and hearing all the information about them. From our 9th floor suite we could also see much whale activity out on the Ocean. Being right on the ocean we could enjoy hours on our deck looking at the sparking blue/green water as the surf splashed to the shore. Glorious sunsets can be seen from the pool area or a 5 minute walk down the street from the resort to a public access beach. This is a very well built resort - we did not hear noise from the suites above or beside us. And it’s location was very close to downtown seaside Lahaina going 15 minutes South or 10 minutes North to Kapalua. ka-anapali and Napili were even closer. Hotel resorts on the ocean are much more expensive than this wonderful YRBO. This option made coming to Hawaii affordable for us and this is why we can say we certainly had a Whale of a Time on Maui thanks to our great HOSTS David and Nancy.

Beautiful, spacious condo in a prime location. Easy to walk to several restaurants and a short drive to Lahaina. The property owner (David) was thorough and responsive to all communication. We had a great stay and would not hesitate to book this condo again. Thank you!
We enjoyed our stay in this lovely condo. I can't think of one item that was not provided. We liked sitting on the lanai and spotting whales passing by. We enjoyed the pool and met many other friendly guests and owners. We have stayed at many VRBOs and David was by far the best host we have ever encountered. He responded quickly to answer any questions or concerns. Definitely looking forward to returning someday.
I traveled alone for my birthday and had a wonderful time. I felt very comfortable and safe for a solo female traveler, the condo is well-equipped and you couldn't beat the view. I enjoyed relaxing by the pool and hanging out on the beach in front of the condo complex (Royal Kahana).
The Royal Kahana is the perfect location - away from the tourist traps but still close to restaurants and bars such as the Maui Brewing Company, Dolly's, and Miso Phat Sushi. Snorkel Bob's is right across the street for your recreation rental needs.
David and Nancy were fantastic hosts! Before we arrived they sent us so much information regarding not only the unit but restaurant recommendations, snorkeling locations and much more. The unit was everything we hoped it would be. The views from the lanai are stunning! We enjoyed coffee every morning just watching the sunrise over the water - beautiful! We often opened the windows in the bedroom to hear the waves. All amenities were thoughtfully considered from beach equipment, luggage racks, kitchen needs, etc. The bed linens were fantastic (and I’m very picky about my sheets!) and the bed was very comfortable. The location of the unit is 10 minutes from all the Lahaina restaurants, shopping, beaches, etc. It was the PERFECT place for us. We hope to be back one day and would 100% choose this place again. Thank you David and Nancy for your incredible hospitality!
Amazing view from balcony with great amenities from the pool to easy access to the beach. Restaurants within walking distance. Would stay here again!
Condo was clean, comfortable and in a great location. Nice quiet unit. Property managers were very responsive and provided great information about the area. Beautiful sunsets down by the pool area.
We enjoyed our stay at the Royal Kahana!!! The unit was very clean and well taken care of. Great views from the balcony where we enjoyed our coffee every morning. The condo is very well stocked with all the cooking and eating items you might need. Overall really enjoyable Stay!!!!
We were impressed with the quality, comfort and cleanliness of the property. It is one of the nicest vacation condos we've stayed in. It is a great location within the complex, the view is wonderful and the unit is well stocked with beach equipment that helped make our stay on Maui a wonderful experience.
The owner made a great effort to make us feel welcome. He emailed before, during, and after the stay to make sure everything was to our satisfaction. The unit was clean and modern, with all the amenities we could hope for. The view was very good, and the unit is away from the pool area, thus being a quieter part of the complex. Would 100% stay there again.
Everything about this rental property was great. The communication with the owners was great. I received all kinds of information regarding Maui. The condo itself was well maintained. If there was any negative, it was the bed. Just a personal preference wishing it was firmer.
We loved our time in the condo. The view is spectacular and the condo was very comfortable and clean. We spent a lot of time at the pool facing the ocean and swimming in the ocean with all the wonderful turtles!
This was our first time using VRBO and it was easy. We really enjoyed this condo being a little out of the way north of Lahaina. Everything was furnished and the view was spectacular. We really enjoyed our stay here.
As soon as we walked through the door of the condo we could tell that this was not just any condo but someone's home that they love and care for. The condo was furnished to a high standard and very well equipped. I wish I could have brought the bed home with me it was so comfy! The view from the balcony was stunning and we saw turtles frequently swim past. At night we switched the air conditioning off and opened up the bedrooms windows to be lulled to sleep by the sound of the waves. It is a pretty quiet resort compared to those further south in Kaanapali but this suited us perfectly as we were looking for some quiet down time. My husband was also super impressed at how clean the bbqs were down by the pool. The information provided by the hosts regarding directions, beaches, snorkelling, shopping, etc was helpful and very much appreciated as was the follow up email to make sure everything was in order.
This property had everything you need for the beach and the kitchen was the best equipped we’ve ever had. It even had power bars to help charge all items at once.
The hosts were very communicative, made sure I have everything for checkin and shared a lot of information about the neighborhood and the island. The unit itself is very clean and exactly as described, with many beach gears and toys. I personally really enjoyed listening to the sound of the waves while drinking coffee on the patio :).
Condo was exactly as advertised. Lovely unit and good location close but not that close to fine restaurants. Dave and Nancy are blessed with a wonderful home. Thanks to them for our stay.
Previous reviews have summed it up....BEAUTIFUL CONDO! Very comfortable, well appointed, everything you could ask for from wine glasses to beach chairs, to a very comfortable Bellagio bed!!!
Wonderful unit with outstanding ocean view! We were so happy with our experience in this unit. Fully furnished and extremely comfortable, it became our home away from home. As comfortable as the unit was, the best feature of this unit are the owners David and Nancy. They provided valuable information regarding how to get to the unit from the airport, restaurant recommendations and sightseeing/activity suggestions. If I ever had a question, they responded quickly via the VRBO email system.
Would we recommend this unit? YES! If we return to Maui would we stay here again? YES! Mahalo David and Nancy!
We really enjoyed staying in this condo. It had everything we needed to enjoy our vacation and more. The beach chairs were high quality and looked brand new. The unit was extremely clean and had enough room for our family of four. We enjoyed watching the sunset from our room and caught glimpses of sea turtles swimming by in the waters that front the resort. I would highly recommend this unit to enjoy your Maui vacation.
We stayed at the Kahana property in early June, celebrating our 43rd anniversary - in style! Every morning enjoying the view of the shore, the turtles and view of other islands while savoring our coffee. David's place was lovely, well appointed and so comfortable, with all the amenities. It was always quiet, save the waves breaking! and plenty of parking is available. We were not close enough to Lahaina to get to the restaurants we were interested in, but it was an easy 10-12 minute drive. David was always available to us if there were questions or concerns, both before we arrived and while we stayed. I would highly recommend David's place if you are looking for that quiet, comfortable condo right on the water. We loved our time there!
This property is the best we have experienced in our travels to the islands. The property owners are so helpful and provide up to date information. The whole experience was wonderful from start to finish.

This was our first trip to Maui and this condo was perfect for our needs. We loved the area and the view from the balcony is legitimately the same as pictured. Absolutely breathtaking sunsets! David was a pleasure to deal with and messaged me a few times during the week to make sure everything was good. Great experience, definitely recommend!
My wife and I are finishing the first week of our first trip to Hawaii and have had a wonderful time in Maui. We were fortunate to have selected David and Nancy’s property
as our home base. Located centrally between Lahaina and Kapalua the drive time to each is 15 minutes with Kaanapali just next door. The condo itself is immaculate and exactly like the VRBO photos. Everything you may need and even a lot you won’t need is included. Just bring your food and kick back on the spacious lanai for a nice sunset. We will reserve this condo early for our next trip.
This room was even more delightful than the photos. They really thought of everything we could need - the closet of beach chairs was the icing on the cake. We didn’t use any of the other equipment but there are boogie boards and sand castle supplies etc. The views every morning and evening are beautiful! You’re right on the ocean and we saw a few gorgeous sunsets and rainbows. The location is far enough away from the bustle of the towns that you have peaceful ocean sounds without traffic. There are amazing calm water beaches nearby, either next to the property or just the road a few miles. We definitely recommend for any couple!
Had a wonderful 3 night stay at this beautiful condo. It had everything you could possibly need but the best feature was the view! Loved sitting on the lanai watching for whales and turtles. Room was very clean, bed super comfy. Would definitely go back. The host where very thoughtful by sending lots of helpful info about the area. Mahalo for a wonderful stay.
Had a great time
Great condo with ocean view- clean and well organized, all appliances top notch. Would definitely recommend to others. Owners were very cordial and provided a great experience overall
David and Nancy’s property is a gem. The unit is ocean-facing and you can easily hear the ocean. We were able to see sea turtles along the shore and whales (in the distance) from the balcony. The unit was well stocked with many thoughtful touches. It was awesome to have beach gear available in the unit. Location was easy to access, no problems with parking. David and Nancy also include many helpful tips for island activities and dining. Would stay here again and would highly recommend to anyone visiting Maui.
Thank you David and Nancy for sharing your lovely home with us! From the moment we first entered we were struck by the beautiful ocean view. We were in Maui to do tours to watch the whale migration and were surprised and delighted by how many humpbacks we were able to see each day just from the lanai. We sat out there with our binoculars every morning during breakfast —a wonderful way to start each day. There are also turtles who like to eat of the rocks at the water’s edge. This condo was the cleanest and among the most comfortable condominiums we’ve stayed in on the island. It was equipped with everything we needed and then some. Thoughtful care and attention to detail was apparent in every room. I really appreciated how there were books out for reading and reference, especially the ones on humpback whales and local birds. David was very communicative and gave us a lot of helpful information about things to do and places to eat beforehand. He even touched base while we were there and was a joy to deal with. The grounds at the Royal Kahana were quiet and well kept, the pool area was nice and clean with plenty of seating for lounging or watching sunsets and parking was a breeze. The staff couldn’t have been friendlier. We wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again.
Property exactly as described, very clean, all the essentials for cooking and comfort. Owner was very responsive and informative. Provided great information on locality
We have stayed in Maui many times, most recently electing to stay mainly in short term rentals to accommodate our young family. While we have noticed with other units that what is reflected in the listing photos doesn’t always match the actual conditions upon arrival, our experience with this unit was the exact opposite. The unit was extremely clean, very well maintained, and well furnished. The views are incredible and the unit is just high enough to offer views all the way up into Kapalua over an adjacent building. The owners were very communicative leading up to the trip, going so far as to reach out to warn us that the entire building was dealing with an HVAC system issue due to a recent storm and even apologizing for any inconvenience it may cause, despite this issue being completely out of their control. I would strongly recommend this property to anyone and will definitely be staying here on a future trip.
From the moment we walked in we felt at home. We loved this unit and will be back.
The condo was great just as described. We had a great time and David was a great help with all his suggestions and helpful hints.
We are looking forward to are next stay.
Great Condo with balcony ocean views. Walking distance to Maui Brewing 🍻
Our 10 days in the condo was just wonderful! David's communication pre-stay was very helpful with tips, etc. And he checked in on the first and last day to see if we needed anything. The little extras in the condo made all the difference: blender and coffee maker for mornings; all the beach toys, chairs, ice chest with blue ice went with us each day; hair dryer, beach towels, etc. The condo is beautiful, great view, exceptionally clean, felt safe, etc. All the things you're looking for in a vacation. The little beach up the road (you can walk to it) was perfect! Tips for future travelers: bring half as many clothes and buy shirts as souvenirs early in your trip. We brought way too many clothes. LOL
We had a great week-long stay here! The views are amazing, shopping and snorkeling were convenient, condo was well stocked, bed was comfortable! The descriptions and photos are very accurate. We loved having our own washer and dryer in the condo. David was very responsive to questions and a pleasure to work with. What more could you want?
We have stayed here before and once again all expectations were met. So many extras in the condo and wonderful view!
My wife and I stayed here for 5 nights and everything was absolutely perfect. Don't hesitate to book!
The condo was just as described! Comfy bed and amazing view. Cooler, beach chairs, extra blankets and towels are included- everything you might need.
Nice pool and easy parking. Would definitely stay here again!
This place is in close proximity of all your needs. You can enjoy the ocean and sunset from balcony. Very well kept with all the necessities. We really enjoyed it.
Condo was exactly as described in listing and more- well stocked with everything you need for your stay. Everything was clean and in good condition- the building and grounds are well maintained. The view from the balcony was great - saw several turtles close to the shore. Location was good - lots of retail within 5 miles or so. The owner was fantastic to work with - prepared us well for our stay with local travel tips. The few minor issues we had were taken care of promptly - owner typically responded within minutes. Overall, I highly recommend this property and owner - an all around great experience for out trip to Maui. We definitely would stay here again and would recommend to our friends for any future trips to Maui.
We loved our stay at Davids! He was a really great host and always so helpful!!! We would definitely be back its really great to have the full kitchen and be so close to all the amazing Bays!
Thank you for the beautiful memories!
The Paulys 🌈🌄
We had a great stay here. Property is just as described. Hosts were very communicative. Thank you, David and Nancy!
This home was exactly as described! Gorgeous ocean views, well appointed kitchen, super comfortable king bed!
This was a lovely place to stay during our time in Maui. The condo was clean to perfection and had all the items we needed. David had premier customer service and communication throughout the process. Thank you for making our 10 Year Anniversary one to remember.
It was our first trip to Maui. And this stay is the best that we could choose. This apartment provides you great view and sound of the ocean. Great location ( close to everything , has close entry to the little beach, Bobs Snorkel store, Grocery store, Maui Brewing Co, great Coffee Shop with delicious Banana bread and Bagels) with bust stop right from of the Resort. Bust 28 will take you everywhere you need, just check the schedule prior you trip. Great atmosphere, design and super clean! Definitely will be back. Thank you David!
What a fantastic room. The hosts, David and Nancy, have thought of everything you may need for your stay. The view was perfect; every morning I would enjoy a cup of coffee on the lanai overlooking the ocean. Most afternoons we could see the sea turtles swimming around! I would absolutely recommend this place for anyone coming to Maui.
Great condo and stay. Favorite thing about this place is the lanai that overlooks the ocean, with amazing views of Molokai and the sunset everyday. It’s so peaceful and tranquil to just hang out on the lanai. Condo is updated and has useful supplies for beach trekking (umbrella, cooler, noodles, boogie board) making it a great spot for couples or small families looking for an escape. Most of all communication with owner was great and David answered any and all my questions. Would definitely stay here again on my next Maui trip if I could!
Great amenities and location, beach front condo with a beautiful view, also very close to other beaches. Hosts are wonderful, very informative from the trip there to the end, gave us great recommendations and made our stay memorable.
We just got home from 8 days in Maui and this condo was just perfect for us! Very clean, very well equipped with everything you need for the beach as well and at home. Wonderful view, we could see the sunset from the lanai and it was fun to watch kite surfers as well as a few turtles swimming by. David and Nancy have put together a wealth of information that was very helpful and they are quick and answering any questions, great hosts! The only thing missing from this place is a beach walk out from the property but that is just nature's fault and it is very easy to walk or drive to nearby beaches. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here!
We had an amazing stay at David and Nancy's condo. Check in was easy (there is a door code so you don't have to meet to obtain a key), the place was super clean, and the communication between David and Nancy was excellent. The condo has everything you need, literally everything. For the beach they have chairs, towels, umbrellas, body board, toys for the sand, coolers. This was really great because you have everything you need to have a great day at the beach. The condo itself is decorated tastefully in Hawaii style decor and has been updated. We felt right at home and the bed was SO comfortable.
As for the building amenities, there is a ping pong table downstairs, games beside the pool on the lawn, the pool is heated (sounds odd but this is a bonus because if it's breezy a pool that is not heated can make for a cold time) and there were always lots of chairs by the pool. There are BBQs on the pool deck and a really nice gym. Also, the front desk staff were very friendly and helpful.
There was no beach access at this property, but you can walk to a nice beach a couple of blocks away, or drive to Kapalua or Napili beach, which are amazing and we preferred to be at these beaches anyway.
Overall great location, great place and great time!
