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. There is a small beach within a 5 minute walk from 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!

Perfect place for a getaway for two. Feels like an upscale hotel, easy check in and parking. Whaler’s store is an easy walk and has great poke. We also enjoyed walking to Miso Phat for excellent sushi! The rocking chairs on the lani were are favorite spot and we spent a lot of time watching the endless whales and turtles.

This condo was amazing. One room condo that had fun, clean decor and plenty of space to spread out. But the view of the ocean/ bay (toward Molokai) was unbeatable. We just sat on the balcony (sorry, lanai 😀) and watched the whales breach in the distance. Candidly, we were a little apprehensive about the condo since it was so reasonably priced and photos can be deceiving, but my goodness, it was perfect and I would say we hit a homerun with it. The owner was very courteous. Close proximity to several nice beaches and restaurants and plenty of day trip opportunities from here. Can’t recommend this place highly enough (for two people)!!

This condo was everything as advertised. We were on the 3rd floor and were right above the water. The view enabled us to see whales, sea turtles and a great sunset. There was a great view of Lanai and Moloka'i. Our host was very, very helpful in us making our plans for a great 40th anniversary.

Amazing property. Ya really can’t get any closer to the water without gettin wet. Oh and breathtaking sunsets too.

Perfect. Condo looks almost new - very well appointed, all the little details. Location is perfect - short walk to little market or short drive to Nāpili Village and the big market, Joeys Kitchen (yum) and Boss Frog. But the best is the lanai - literally 10’ from the sea wall and on the third floor so you have 180 degree views of Molokai and Lanai and in season fantastic whale watching. We saw spouts all day long and LOTS of breaches, fin slaps and flukes. Wonderful stay.

Daily whale and turtle watching from the balcony are fabulous! Feeling the ocean breeze and smelling the ocean sea throughout this beautiful condo are sublime. A gorgeous Maui vacation is right here in this beautiful condo. From decor to the bamboo ceilings and fans, everything is perfect! Beaches, food, shopping, snorkeling, mountains, the location is wonderful. Jonathan and Denise

Great location! There are plenty of conveniences nearby- workout gym, stores etc. but you don’t feel like you’re in a busy area at all. We loved it!! The views from the lanai or amazing!!

The property was very clean, it had all the amenities we needed to enhance our stay and the views were incredible…from the sunsets, turtles, local fishermen, surfers, etc., it was amazing. The condo is super cute with a modern coastal feel. There are many places within walking distance to eat and shop, and a few beaches to enjoy. I would definitely recommend Cheryls place when staying in Maui.

We absolutely loved our stay here! We saw turtles right in front of us every morning on the balcony. Location is also great! Super close to amazing beaches and food!

This was my last night in Maui (Hawaii too) & it was the perfect way to end my 2.5 weeks in Hawaii! So gorgeous, perfect amenities, beautiful view from lanai, wonderful location!!! Cheryl was an incredible host & even made sure I could check in early!



November 2023
When the listing says you are ten feet from the water, they are not kidding! The waves crash against the sea wall and spray on to the grass. Occasionally you will feel the condo shake from the force of the wave! We fell asleep each night listening to the waves which is exactly what we wanted. There are turtles swimming by non stop. The complex itself is a little old (while there are lounge chairs on site, you have to go across the street to use the pool which we never did so cannot report on that) but this end unit has been updated very recently and is impeccably decorated and designed. Furnishings are top notch and luxurious. You have a spectacular view of Lanai and Molokai and the famous Maui sunsets. A swimmable beach is a short walk away. Be sure to eat at Miso Phat Sushi-the TNT roll is divine and be sure to bring your spices if you plan to eat in. I appreciated the keyless entry door lock so one less key to worry about. I would absolutely stay here again.

What a beautiful and picturesque place to stay in West Maui ! Woke up and went to bed with the sounds and sight of the ocean. Great location - walking distance to coffee shop and a local gym and easy drive to beautiful beaches in Kapalua. The locals couldn’t have been nicer and appreciative we were there to support their businesses. Would definitely recommend this unit !

We couldn't have been more impressed or had a better stay. The space was clean, well-designed and perfect location for exploring the surrounding area and relaxation.

We had an amazing first impression and the condo is beautiful and well appointed. Unfortunately we were there the week Lahaina burned, and we had to leVe our stay after two days of shelter in place. The condo owner sent people to check on us and maje sure we had food and water. She kept in touch with us by text since we had no phone, internet, or electricity. She really demonstrated care and concern for our wellbeing. Hoping some day to return as we had to leave so early. I highly recommend this beautiful studio condo.

We have rented many properties in Hawaii through VRBO, this unit did not disappoint! We would highly recommend this condo and would come back in a heart beat. Every detail was thought of, loved how clean and newly renovated everything was. Loved the decor and I would've decorated it the same way if it was my condo, lol. Very inviting, relaxing and overall just great vibes with this condo. The location was fantastic and the view was a dream! We had rainbows a few mornings, it was just out of this world! Thank you for making this condo available for others to enjoy.

It is a beautiful property. Tastefully decorated. There is a refrigerator, stove, microwave, washer and dryer. Everything you need for a week- or two of stay. There is not a beach on property- but there is one about 0.5 miles away- and easy walk. Also, Kapalua Bay is less then 10 minutes away- It is a beautiful beach, with great snorkeling- and a really nice Coastal Trail to walk on. There also is Honolua Bay for great snorkeling pretty close. Cheryl was great to work with. We had a great stay- celebrating a special anniversary. My wife loved her decorating, and loved the spot. You are right by the water- making it a great place for morning coffee. We listened to the waves at night. We were there just over 2 weeks- and could have stayed longer

This property and location is heaven. The sunsets from the deck were incredible, and it was so special to watch sea turtles in the water below. It's a quiet place with great snorkeling about a 10 minute north.

We could not have loved this condo any more! It’s exactly as it’s pictured, only better. The view is absolutely breathtaking and we spent many mornings and evenings on the balcony soaking it in. The property was clean, well-stocked with everything we needed, and conveniently located. Would absolutely recommend and would love to stay here again!

From the second we walked into the property we loved the view and all the decorations! It had everything we needed for the week. We appreciated the beach chairs, umbrella, and cooler for days at the beach. The parking space is right below the condo making it convenient to get out and explore throughout the day! Lots of food and sites just a short drive away. We utilized the kitchen and washer and dryer as well. Would definitely recommend this place for anyone looking for a quiet paradise.

Aready planning a return trip. The condo exceeded expectations. Location is wonderful…literally feet from the ocean with the most incredible view of Moloka‘i, Lanai & sunsets from the balcony and watching the turtles never got old. Lots of beaches nearby, but we spent most of our time a few miles south at Kaanapali Beach. The space is updated with charming beach decor, very comfortable and clean. Cheryl was great with communication and has included everything you need for your Maui vacation (beach towels & beach chairs, fully equipped kitchen, plus washer & dryer). 10/10!!

This condo is so special! The Lanai was as described. The sunrise and sunsets are so breathtaking. We saw sea turtles every single day, even multiple times most days! The condo was super, super clean. You can tell the owner put a lot of attention to detail when they remodeled this place. Everything was absolutely perfect, I wouldn’t change a thing! The only bad part was when we had to pack up and say goodbye. We hope to be back and stay in the gem again some day soon!

We love this place. Great view and location. Lots of turtles and whales to be seen during their migration.



December 2022
Perfect for 2 people! The view from the lanai is spectacular! Decor is beachy, and very tastefully done. Very comfortable! Pool was undergoing maintenance, but wasn’t a huge deal for us. Stairs could be an issue for some. Overall a wonderful spot. We would definitely go back!

Just like the photos! Beautiful and comfortable! We packed light because we knew we'd be able to wash, so nice to have that amenity. Nice and quiet on the top floor. Right on the water. Not beach front but, we liked it better because there wasn't any traffic/noise other than the crashing of the waves. Looking out from the balcony we could see 2 islands across the way, Lanai and Molokai. We spent a lot time on the very comfortable balcony and saw lots of turtles, some skates(ray), and even saw a Hawaiian monk seal. Also loved the very close, walkable Hawaiian Village Coffee shop!!! A few other shops there too, very convenient! We will return! Until we meet again...for our 30th!

The location is perfect, a little outside of the busy city but close enough (15 minutes). The view off the balcony is something I still can not get over. We saw so many sea turtles it was perfect! The check in process was easy and the place was clean and so comfy. Loved the washer and dryer which means no laundry to do when back from vacay. We will definitely be back and recommend this spot to everyone!

This condo is sheer perfection. Not only was the inside an adorable, cozy, and welcoming part of our stay; the view from the balcony was breathtaking. We saw multiple turtles daily swimming below. There is a quick walk to a little beach. Great restaurants nearby and in walking distance (miso phat). Driving distance to some other great beaches, and to Lahaina. I wish I never had to leave, it was that wonderful!

My wife and I stayed at the condo for ) days and it is everything you see in the pictures and more. There is no way to capture the view but it is better than the pictures. The quiet location of the condo is perfect with everything you need walkable and then any dinners etc just a short 5-10mins away. Uber is easy if needed and the area is clean and safe. We will be returning and can not wait to come back. The host is so easy to work with and everything exactly as advertised 5*+++

The views were amazing and the condo was super clean. Parking is a bit of a tight squeeze but manageable. There was a sandy beach within walking distance, and sea turtles everyday, very cool to see everyday.

Hands down my favorite place I have stayed on Maui! The condo was beautiful on the inside and the location is unbeatable. I had wanted a condo as close to the water as possible and this one really exceeded my expectations. Couldn't get any closer... and you can watch turtles all day long right from the lanai! I was expecting to just be on a rocky shoreline but there is a sandy beach with beach access right next to the building which was a pleasant surprise. We spent our evenings on the lanai watching the beautiful sunset over the ocean and stargazing. These few days were the best part of our honeymoon.

Cheryl’s place is absolutely beautiful. It looks just as good in person as it does in photos. Cheryl was very accommodating. The location of the property is great as well. We will be returning the Cheryl’s condo in the future!

It was a total dream to stay here. We loved how cute and intimate the condo was. Not to mention the people that worked around the pool area and around the condo were so nice giving out fresh fruit like mangoes that were grown there.

The pictures show this place perfectly. It’s truly a beach oasis with a great view of the ocean. Watching the sea turtles come in at night was a highlight of our trip. If I ever return to Maui I will be staying here again!

We spent our last three days in Maui at this cozy little place. I'll always remember the calming sound of the sea breeze and breaking surf.

We stayed in this nice little condo for 5 nights. It sits right on the water and you’ll have awesome sunsets every evening. The condo is close to several restaurants and shops. They have a nice covered parking for your car. The condo is very nice with a full sized refrigerator and queen bed. It is small but has everything that you should need. We would stay here again.

The view is breathtaking and exactly as advertised in the pictures. The room is small, but cozy and the perfect size for a couple. The mirrors on the walls are a great touch! The balcony is very comfy and a great place to have a meal. We’re hoping this place will be available again for our five year anniversary!

This was the first place we stayed. My husband and I were celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary. We stayed here for the first 3 nights. The location was perfect. The place was immaculate...my husband just kept saying "I LOVE this place". We bought groceries and made breakfast and dinner most nights. Slept to the sounds of the waves. Paradise!! We forgot a sweatshirt and the host was so kind to respond, even out of the country. No complaints. AMAZING STAY!!!

We stayed here for our honeymoon and have absolutely nothing terrible to say. Staying here helped make our trip as special as it was. The place itself was so comfortable. We had excellent nights sleep everyday. The condo offered all the amenities we could ever need. The main reason to book here is the covered lanai with the INCREDIBLE view of the ocean. We watched turtles swim every night while watching the sunset. Something truly special. the condo is only a short drive to everything we wanted to do. We absolutely loved all the included features like beach chairs, noodles and towels that really made our beach experience that much better. Our first night staying a transformer outside blew and we temporarily lost power, but Cheryl was so quick to respond to text and she got in touch with the correct people to get the problem resolved quickly. Don't hesitate to book this one!

This was an amazing trip ! Beautiful island, beautiful ocean and a beautiful condo. This condo was fantastic. As described, it sits right on the water with a view of two neighboring islands. This place is decorated with great style and the owner left no stone unturned. Everything you need to move in. Great host, great communication and great place to stay ! We did see a few turtles every morning and the whales were everywhere in Maui as of Valentine's week, including those visible from this property. BOOK IT !

This condo is in a great spot for experiencing the wonders of Maui. Great views, centrally located, close to shopping, dining and beaches...it has it all! The complex includes oceanfront BBQ, 2 swimming pools across the street and plenty of parking. The unit itself is well equipped and was just as pictured. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

Everything was as presented on website. I was a bit hesitant because we only slept on king bed for years. It was comfortable and fine. We didn’t have a car (suggest one if possible). We could walk to a few places. But we really didn’t want to leave the lanai so it didn’t matter to us. Thank you Cheryl.

This is lonnngggg overdue, but this was by far one of our favorite stays EVER!! I came back on to see if it was available to rebook if that tells you anything and realized I never left a review. The sunsets were amazing. We saw whales and sea turtles- literally incredible. Maui is absolutely gorgeous. The bed was comfy and the room was cool! We’ve recommended this place to many many people! Only great things to say!! Cheryl was amazing as well- she sent us an email with things to do/places to eat, etc., which was really thoughtful and great! Can’t wait to go back!

From the moment we walked in, I knew this place was meant to be for us! It was clean and beautifully decorated. The balcony was to die for! We spent 75% of our time on it; Ate every meal and watched the moon at night. I would highly recommend this place!

It's tragic that I can only give 5 stars in each category. It's spotlessly clean and immaculately decorated. You cannot get a better view. Every single morning we saw sea turtles feeding in the surf from the lanai and EVERY single morning (for 14 days) we saw a rainbow except the mornings where there were double rainbows (I'm not joking). It's far enough outside Lahaina that you won't experience the hectic traffic but close enough to make shopping convenient with a short drive. It's a top floor end unit so no noisy neighbors to contend with either. I can't say enough about this place. Thank you so much for the privilege of letting us stay.


Donna A.
August 2021
This place is a must stay. If I could give more than five stars I would. Cheryl communicated throughout and was very detailed with info needed for the stay. The place is gorgeous. You will feel like you are at a spa. Truly amazing! I will most definitely stay here again. Thank you Cheryl I loved this place!!

Me and my husband stayed here for 10 nights for our honeymoon in Maui and I’m so glad we chose Cheryl’s condo! We saw some beautiful sunsets from the lanai and loved going down to watch the sea turtles everyday. The space was clean and beautifully decorated. Cheryl provides everything you need for a perfect vacation and the location was in a great spot to get coffee, food, etc within walking distance. We would highly recommended this place and would love to stay again one day!

My husband and I stayed in this condo again for our second time on Maui. It was just as beautiful as I remembered from our first trip 5 years ago. We love this place! Highly recommend watching the sunset from the balcony or just below by the water. It's a beautiful view! It was a wonderful way to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary. We hope to be back again soon.
