Please support the Maui economy and the people here by continuing to visit this beautiful island. We are in Kahana, seven miles north of the town of Lahaina. Our property was not affected in any way by the Aug. 8, 2023, wildfires in Lahaina town. Mahalo.

Kahana Reef is the hidden gem of Maui. A place where you can enjoy the best views, central location and a quiet, peaceful and relaxing experience at a price you can afford. This unit has just been remodeled and is located in the prized middle building, with nothing but ocean and the islands of Molokai and Lanai out front -- except for the whales and turtles you'll see from your lanai.

The condo features a king-size bed in the bedroom with memory foam; queen sleeper in the LR; stainless appliances, a refrigerator with icemaker, new cabinets and granite countertops in the kitchen; all new fixtures in the bathroom; new slate for the lanai; new lighting fixtures; free wi-fi; flat-screen TVs in the LR and BR; and easy access to the communal pool and adjacent beaches.

You're 10 minutes from dining, shopping, golf and world-class beaches in Kaanapali; 5 minutes from one of the world's best beaches, Napili Bay; 15 minutes from the unique town and historic whaling village of Lahaina. Fishing, whale watching, surfing, stand-up paddling, kayaking and snorkeling are all close by.

There are five world class golf courses within a couple of miles, including the Plantation Course at Kapalua, the home of the Hyundai Championship. The Kapalua Tennis Gardens also are nearby and available for play.

We have gas outdoor grills for guests; free parking; a laundromat steps away; and convenient shopping and restaurants within walking distance.

We supply the towels, dishes, utensils and the view. All you need to bring is your swimsuits, sunscreen, flip flops and sense of adventure. Then sit back, take in the view, soak up the aloha and enjoy the sunsets. It just doesn't get any better.

We visited in February and loved it. Ground floor unit makes easy access to beach/pool. Watched the whales during the day and walked out to watch the turtles come in at dusk. Would absolutely stay again, perfect location and the hosts were great to deal with. Highly recommend

I could not begin to express how much we enjoyed this condo. Spectacular ocean views. The lanai was great with a table for four. Sea turtles and whales everywhere. Kitchen was fully stocked with all our needs met. Mini air fryer was a hit. Bed in master was very comfortable. Enough towels for the week we stayed. Walking distance to a market and a few restaurants! We really had the best time. I love cooking and spotting for whales and turtles in the waves. It would have been great to have an EV charger on the property. Overall 5 out of 5 stars.

Enjoyed our stay in condo. Very clean with tropical decor. Great place to sit on lanai and gaze at ocean. The view is awesome. Except for sounds of ocean is quiet and away from crowds of Kanapaali. Kitchen Well stocked. Have portable AC in living area but never needed it. Nice ocean breeze with doors open and ceiling fans.

Incredible place on ground level, right by the water. We could wake up, walk to get coffee, and then walk right into the water and swim with sea turtles. We had a fantastic stay, and would absolutely come again.

This was mine and my husbands first time ever going to Hawaii, and this location was perfect for our first trip. The view out of the Lanai is gorgeous and so peaceful in the morning to wake up and immediately see the ocean when you step out to the living area. The bed is pretty comfortable and we are picky with our beds. Communication with Don was extremely easy and he was always quick to respond, he even gave us pointers on things to do to kill time on our last day on the island. The location is nice, just being a short drive into Lahaina was really convenient without being in the busy traffic.

We loved the beautiful location and Condo! It had Everything we needed and then some. We were gone exploring most days, but when we were there the residents and other guests were very friendly. Sea Turtles were on the sea wall in front of the condo and a very nice beach right next to it. We had a wonderful vacation. Thank you Don and Yolanda!

Loved staying here! Neighborhood is quiet and view from unit is breathtaking. Coffee/gas/food is within a 10 minute walk OR short drive which was helpful. I would stay here again!

The area is not as crowded as the Kaanapali and Lahaina areas. Nice small beach for swimming next to the complex. Great sunsets. Condo had everything we needed.

Had a great time visiting family in the area. Perfect location! Great Condo, Wonderful view!!! Very well equipped. Had everything I needed. Owners were easy to work with and responsive. Only issue was construction going on in the complex and also in the unit above. Owners warned me about the complex repairs. They did not know about the owner project above. No notice was given to HOA by the owner about their remodel. Don & Yolanda worked with me to mitigate the inconvenience. I would rent again!!!!

This is a very nicely decorated well stocked condo. It is conveniently located close to Lahina Town to the south. To the north, there many small beaches located a short drive for snorkeling, boogie boarding , surfing or paddle boarding. We saw whales every night from our lanai with our binoculars. Beautiful sunsets almost every night.

Very quiet but friendly community. The turtles on the seawall were a highlight to be seen almost every time I looked. Beautiful sunsets and a very comfortable bed along with a well stocked kitchen, everything needed to make a relaxing vacation in Maui. Don't forget to check out Honolau Bay, just 15 min up the road for the islands best snorkeling.

Great location next to ocean. You can relax on patio lanai with ocean only feet away. Great ventilation we didn't use air. More/upgraded dishes would be useful.

Although the property was a little dated, it was very clean and comfortable. Bathroom was updated but small so we had to work on "sharing" facilities. Property was listed in Lahaina but was really in Kahana.

Beautiful property. Enjoyed the lanai especially in the mornings and late evenings. Close to amenities and other tourist locations. Took many pictures of the sunsets and even got up at night to take a picture of the full moon. Very picturesque.

I stayed at this property for a week in March/2016 along with my wife and 2 daughters. The unit had everything we needed and was exactly like the pictures. We loved being close to the ocean, often just laying around on the lounge chairs on the grass watching the beautiful Maui landscape as the ocean waves crashed against the sea wall. The small relatively private beach close to the unit, was great and perfect for my girls. After several trips staying in the Kaanapali resorts, this was a welcome change. The proximity to the ocean can't be beat. We often would pick up some fresh fish to barbecue and then eat on our patio while enjoying the ocean just steps away. I was a bit concerned about it being a ground floor unit, but it actually turned out to be a big plus. My girls could just walk out on the lawn and play without having to go down stairs or elevator. The complex is very mellow, a mix of owners and renters. We hardly saw anyone walking past our unit so we never felt our privacy was compromised being on the ground floor. I can't say enough good things about this unit and what an incredible value it is compared to the large Kaanapali resorts. The owners were easy to work with and prepared us beforehand with all the info we would need. We can't wait to go back! Barry

Our family of 4 stayed here for a week and we're so pleased. The access to the beach is steps away. We felt as it was a private beach for us only. The ocean views are the best we have seen on Maui. The home had everything you needed from kitchen wear to beach chairs. There is laundry facilities on site which were useful for the bathroom towels. We would recommend this place to anyone. Thank you for sharing your home with us as we can't wait to come back. Mahalo

My husband and I spent a month in this wonderful condo to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. The description and pictures on the website were very accurate and the condo was very clean and well maintained. The location is perfect and even closer to the water than we even imagined!! We liked the fact that the condo was on the ground floor and in the middle of the complex. It also had easy access to the laundry room. We enjoyed having coffee and breatkfast on the lanai every morning while watching the whales. It was also great to see the sea turtles!! When we arrived in Maui, we went to Costco and stocked up on food and things we would need for our stay because it's the best place to shop in Maui and by far the cheapest!! We grilled most of our meals and found it so relaxing just to eat on the lanai and enjoy the view that we didn't even out to restaurants much. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed! The king size bed in the bedroom was great and very comfortable. There was even a printer there which we used several times. I was also very pleased by the well-lit bathroom. We had a great and very relaxng vacation and we would definitely recommend this condo to anyone looking for a great, quiet place to stay right on the ocean!! We definitely hope to return very soon!!

This unit is an outstanding ground floor unit with all of the amenities you would ever need to make your trip to Maui the best. Not only this, but the price was very reasonable (even during peak season). The owners of this unit were very helpful and easy to work with. Thank you so much for providing me and my family a great condo with a perfect location.

It was great to be able to watch & swim with the abundant sea turtles right from the property. Two small beaches at property and not crazy,, crowded. We enjoyed sitting out on the lanai/deck. It was nice to have A/C in the bedroom and a key-code door lock so you didn't have to worry about fumbling for a key all the time.

Very quiet and peaceful location. We enjoyed relaxing and eating on the Lanai, which is only a hop, skip, and exciting jump away from the ocean. We truly appreciated the great accommodations and highly recommend this vacation rental! -Jason&Catlin

Beautiful Ocean Front Condo with an excellent view of the ocean from the living room and lanai. Only 40 feet from the ocean. There were no surprises. The condo was exactly as described and shown on VRBO. The owners provide all the information needed to make your stay pleasant. Plenty of amenities to suffice your vacation needs. A very comfortable bed even for a 6'3'' man. No A/C needed with this facility. There is a pleasantly comforting breeze that flows from one end of the condo to the other which is very relaxing especially in the evening. Also the sound of the ocean helps you get that good night sleep needed for the activities planned for the following day. Thank you for allowing us to use your vacation home as our own during our 2 week stay in Maui. It was simply wonderful and if given the chance to visit Maui again would definitely love to stay in your condo. Mahalo! Tim, Geri & Braelyn

We stayed here in January and it was absolutely perfect. Ocean view ground level with the sound of the waves 24/7. Clean quiet building with a fully equipped kitchen gives you everything you need. The grounds were always maintained and the turtles visited almost every morning. I will definitely stay here again!

Location was awesome, the condo had everything we needed. Views amazing and to be able to hear the waves 24/7 added to the relaxation we needed. We'll definitely be staying there again!!

I felt like this was a home away from home. The condo looks out onto the well maintained grounds, and beyond to the blue ocean and majestic island of Molokai. The kitchen is equipped with everything you need to cook your meals, but if you feel like eating out, the condo is only a few minutes away from some of the best restaurants on Maui. There are so many great things to see and experience and this west Maui location makes a convenient home base for them all. Whether you are snorkeling, whale watching, kayaking, hiking, shopping, or fine dining, you'll be happy to end the day back at this enchanting home away from home. I can't wait to go back.
