Kahana Sunset is a beachfront resort on the world famous west coast of Maui, 10 minutes south of Kapalua and north of Kaanapali. You will be swimming and snorkeling with turtles and tropical fish off of the white sand beach of protected Keoni Nui Bay. There is a heated swimming pool that has an adjoining children's wading pool.

Whether you want to create a meal from the fresh local fare in the well stocked gourmet kitchen or crave a burger prepared on the property's well-kept grills, your food will be seasoned with a view of the beautiful gardens, back dropped by the blue waters of the Pacific, and framed with colorful sunsets between Lanai and Molokai. There is also a communal herb garden near the pool that you can help yourself to.

Nearby Kapalua offers two championship golf courses. The Plantation course hosts the first PGA event each year and the Bay course is sculpted along the coast with picturesque views. In the area, you'll find world class beaches, zip lines and a variety of shops and restaurants.

Just south is Kanapali with "Whalers Village." There are outdoor malls, restaurants, water activities and more.

The world famous Honolua Bay is a 15 minute drive away. During the winter go watch the greatest surfers in the world ride huge picture-perfect waves. The rest of the year, catamarans ferry snorkelers in from the surrounding resorts.

The unit has AC in every room, 2 ocean view lanais/ balconies off the master suite and the living room. We also have an electric awning to give a little shade as needed. There is a 60" smart TV in the living area and free 5G Wifi if you don't want to venture too far off the grid. There are plenty of board games that will keep you entertained too. But you will quickly learn, the best entertainment is in the waters of Keoni Nui Bay.

This unit has all the amenities of home with an amazing view. After your first visit, you'll immediately begin planning your next trip. 1. GET - 186-128-8960-01 Registration Number: 430030150044, GE-186-128-8960-01, TA-186-128-8960-01

We had a wonderful stay at Kahana Sunset - A Honu World. We came for Spring Break and while being on the west side adds time to any Maui adventure, the sunsets were worth it. We enjoyed seeing a turtle on the beach, the pool was lovely and working with the Mary was easy. I appreciated the tips about the area both in email before we arrived and in the guest book. The unit was perfect for our family of 5 and the kids loved their room. There could be a few more cooking items - cup measures, trays for using the grill, a pineapple corer (wonderful tool). On the whole though, we had everything we needed. If we ever make it back to Maui, we would stay at Kahana again!

We very much enjoyed our stay at this condo during the week of Christmas 2023. The property is just as advertised in the listing. The unit is thoughtfully stocked with everything you will need and many other extras. Location is nice - quiet area, less than a mile from Napili beach and shopping and restaurants at Napili plaza. Kaanapali beach and Whaler’s village are an easy 15 minute drive away. You will enjoy your stay in this unit.

We loved our condo! It was perfect for our family of 4 with two teens. Gorgeous ocean/sunset/rainbow views (yes, there were frequently rainbows I could see out my window when i woke up in the am!). Kitchen was completely stocked with everything you need. Even really nice beach chairs/umbrella & boogie board/toys to take to the beach! Very clean, great location (we walked to the coffee shop each day), quiet and relaxing! Loved it an highly recommend!!

Picturesque location and views.. . Loved the private beach and pool. Property was as described and was fully stocked with everything we needed. Property manager was responsive and graciously arranged a late checkout so we could enjoy an extra couple hours. Overall a perfect spot for our family’s first visit to Hawaii!

Absolutely loved this condo! We brought our family of six for my son’s graduation and it was perfect. All of the beds are exceptionally comfortable. The view is breathtaking from both balconies (one off of the master and one off of the living room). The kitchen had everything we needed to cook dinner. We also appreciated the beach towels and sunscreen. We swam with the turtles and snorkeled every day in the bay. Excellent location to Kapalua and Black Rock. Individually each member of my family came to me, saying how much they loved it, and asked if we could book it again for next year. Mahalo Mary and Nick! The Maxsons

This condo was perfect for our small group. It was easy access to different activities. The grounds were beautiful. I felt like I lived in a garden with a ocean and mountain backyard. We enjoyed the deck every morning and evening. The pool was warm. Thank you for sharing your wonderful condo.

We had a lovely time in Maui and the unit. The condo is very well equipped and has everything you need to feel at home. We are looking forward to booking this unit again.

We love staying at Kahana Sunset with its ocean front location and beautiful grounds and this unit gives you a gorgeous view of the entire property and ocean. We stayed for 10 days and found the condo well equipped for cooking (Our family enjoys cooking and making special meals while in Maui) and stocked with staple items so we didn't have to buy everything at the grocery store as well as many "extras" we weren't expecting like shampoo, conditioner, lotion, sunscreen, etc.! My advice is to go to the unit before you go to Safeway/Foodland! I would say that the property was clean overall, but I did have to wipe the fridge out a little bit to get out some bits of produce left in the produce drawer. Check-in was a little concerning when the code we were given didn't work, but we were in fast contact with the property manager, Carol, who gave us another code that worked successfully. And Carol did go above and beyond in my opinion when we inquired if the unit had a broiler pan (we couldn't find one) and she went to the store and bought a roasting pan for us that day so we could make our ribs! Overall D4 felt like a home away from home in paradise. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us Mary, we hope to return soon!

Absolutely loved this rental. The property was well maintained, rental manager was super quick to respond to any request. Pool area and small beach are great, you can see turtles there almost every day. We also rented paddle boards and launched from there, paddled WAY out into the channel and ended up having whales come up around us within 20 yards! Saw whales from our deck EVERY day. (Jan 4th-14th stay) Grocery store and restaurants close. Napili and kapalua bay beaches really close, and Lahaina is just a short drive. Would definitely stay here again.

February 2023
Beautiful two story, fully outfitted for sun and fun with lovely views over the pool to the ocean, which is just a stroll down the path. We snorkeled with the turtles right off the shore and had a fabulous stay! Thank you!!! Melanie, Jon, Corrina and Andre.

January 2023
We had a wonderful time at this condo, what a great place to enjoy Maui. We even had a honu visit for an afternoon snooze on the beach! It was clean, beds comfortable and kitchen fully stocked for all cooking needs. We enjoyed our meals out on the lanai, and a stroll across the lawn to watch the sunsets on the private beach. Nice to have parking right at the unit as well. We look forward to returning!

We brought our family on vacation for Christmas. The location of this property is beautiful and the owners have everything you need for your stay. The property has a pool, barbecues and access to a private beach. The sunsets were enjoyed by all on the lounge chairs by the beach. The barbecue was cleaned every morning along with the pool. A secluded hideaway. Beach chairs and nice beach towels were there for our use. Definitely recommend this property and would return again.

The minute we walked in the front door it felt like home. We were able to relax and enjoy! The view from master bedroom and family room were so beautiful. Waking up to the ocean was breathtaking! Walking a short distance to an amazing beach for snorkeling was an added bonus. We saw many turtles, fish, eels all what you would drive to go see right in your back yard. The pool was fun for the kids and the tanning for me was awesome! The view was like no other. Relaxing right next to the ocean!! What people pay 50-100$ for a cabana for, and even that’s not this good. The outdoor library makes you feel so far away. So much to say, so much to do. Love it all, I would move in if I could. I most definitely will stay again.

This is the perfect place to enjoy your Maui vacation! The condo is extremely comfortable and well-kept. The hosts are so thoughtful and have provided anything and everything you could need—reef-friendly sunscreen, towels, chairs, umbrellas, floaties, ice chest, etc. The grounds are clean and peaceful.

This unit was the perfect place for our family to stay while we were vacationing in Maui. The location is just a little north of the Kaanapali/Lahaina area, and it was easy to get to both places for restaurants, resorts, activities, etc. But even though it is close to Kaanapali and all the activity there, Kahana is a bit quieter and great for a relaxed family stay outside of the busy resort areas. My kids loved the pool at Kahana Sunset; it was clean, not overly crowded at any time of day, and the shallower children's pool was great for our youngest child. The complex is quiet; even though all of the units' lanais are open-air and not completely separate from one another, it's fairly quiet in the evenings and since the pool closes at 8 pm, the main courtyard stays quiet as well. The small private beach area connected to the property was great to have; the surf was quite high the first few days of our stay due to a tropical storm that had recently come through, but later in the week the water was really lovely for an afternoon swim. We had daily showers each morning, and a rainbow every day of our stay! I'd also call out that the D building at Kahana Sunset is oriented to look towards the waterfront, so I think it has some of the best views of all the buildings on the property. For this unit in particular, we took advantage of a lot of the other amenities - the air conditioning in both bedrooms and the living room area was really helpful to have on warm evenings, and there are lots of beach toys/gear stored on the lanai that we were able to use as well, which was really helpful since we didn't need to buy any of that. Carol, the property manager, was great to work with - seamless check-in process (she texted us a few days in advance to give us all of the check-in information) and she was extremely responsive by texts both before, during and after our stay. She even offered, after the in-unit washer/dryer unexpectedly went out of service just before our stay, to arrange for our laundry to be done if we needed it. Overall I would highly recommend this unit to any family looking to travel to Maui!

Thank you Sarantes family for opening your lovely home to us! The process to book to arriving was seamless. We truly enjoyed our stay as the condo was very spacious to accommodate 2 teenagers and 4 adults. The unit was very clean and was exactly as seen in your photos - what an amazing view from both balconies! The Kahana Sunset grounds were so well maintained and groomed. Having the private beach literally steps away was amazing as we had so much fun in the water and saw incredible fish and turtles while snorkeling. We also enjoyed using the pool after sunset. The communal BBQs were very well maintained and used often for our yummy dinners. Just a note that in the guest room, you may have some feathered early risers in the trees by your window beckoning you to wake up! We enjoyed waking early to take a morning walk to The Coffee Store (highly recommend) in Naplili (very close strip mall with grocery store, shops, eateries) every day! We also found some lovely walks around the area and the location was close by car to other beaches, towns, etc. Thank you again for contributing to our very memorable Maui family vacation!

We absolutely loved our week at 'A Honu World' Condo. We saw turtles everyday when we snorkeled right at the condo's beach. The condo was clean and fit our family of 4 perfectly. The grounds were very well maintained (grills and pool cleaned every morning).

My husband, our adult daughter, and her girlfriend enjoyed our stay at Kahana Sunset! The property is nice and the view is fabulous. We were all impressed with how well-stocked the kitchen was and the comfort of the beds and other furniture. My husband and I loved having our own lanai off of the large bedroom. We were all very happy that this unit had A/C! The first two nights that we were there weren't too hot, so we slept with the sliding door open and it was so lovely to listen to the waves all night. The remaining nights it was a bit too hot and humid, so we kept the place closed up with the A/C on. The little beach at Kahan Sunset is really nice. It's almost like having your own private beach. The snorkeling wasn't great at this beach, but it's fabulous at other nearby beaches. There are just a few detractors from this property. The lanais of the units are all right next to each other with only a short wall in between (maybe 8 ft tall for the part closest to the building and about 3-4 feet tall for the last about 6 feet of the lanai). This meant that we could easily hear the conversations and music that occurred on the other lanais. There was never noise after 10 pm (although it did last until that time one night), but during some of the evenings it disrupted the serenity of the location. The "hot tub" was the same temperature as the pool, so it was just a small pool, not a hot tub. Although these two things detracted a bit from the property, overall we had a great stay and it was well worth the price!

We enjoyed our stay and found the condo to be quite accommodating for a family of 5 (youngest being 16). The condo was well stocked with everything needed to have an enjoyable vacation. Things we thought we would need to buy upon arrival were already provided, so A+ for a well stocked condo. Only needed to shop for the food we wanted to eat. Plenty of cooking utilizes to make dinner on the evenings you want to stay at the condo. The view is amazing and very relaxing from either balcony. Only down side was ants, but we should have known better as we live in Florida and if you leave food out over night the ants will find it. Outside of that no complaints. Overall the condo exceeded our expectations.

We rented this condo to celebrate my daughters graduation from UH at Manoa. We could not have asked for a more picture perfect relaxing place to spend the week. The unit is very clean and well stocked. The snorkel gear, boogie boards, beach chairs and balconies were all put to good use. There was even extra sunscreen and a first aid kit! A beautiful well stocked kitchen was also a great amenity. We didn’t use the community grills but they were cleaned each day and we probably should have used them. This condo community, with a private beach, is so amazing that even the sea turtles come and hang out on and near the beach!

We love every detail about this delightful oceanfront condo! The property feels like an amazing beautiful home tropical garden, cozy but spectacular. The unobstructed Westward view of the ocean & the neighboring island provides breathtaking daily sunsets! The pool is pristine & the “private” beach has easily accessible stairs. The condo itself is beautifully furnished and so well equipped it really felt like home. The owner, Mary was exceptionally responsive & accommodating as we had a blimp in our plans due to the pandemic. This condo will definitely be our go to “home” for all of our future trips to Maui. We would highly recommend this condo to friends & family. Aloha 🌸

This room was perfect for me a king up and having an amazing view of the ocean. The location was amazing. It was a peaceful stay and quite (we did have some noisy neighbors but not your fault). The condo was fully stocked with anything you could want and then some.

We enjoyed the view and property so much, we spent a whole day just hanging out here! Views are fabulous, access to protected inlet beach, easy, grounds and pool wonderful. Plenty of water toys! Beds are comfortable, shower heads marvelous, kitchen well stocked. Spacious!! If you have to work, the desk has a stellar view! Good Wifi with plenty of USB ports. Just be warned, the water tastes horrible and not everything may work as it should. But if it doesn’t, the manager/housekeeper is a phone call/text away. She is helpful and cheerful and will take care of any and everything you need her to. Thank you, Mary, for your wonderful hospitality and flexibility.

This Kahuna Sunset property is a spectacular condo that was immaculate. It was fully stocked with everything you end up forgetting like “Sunscreen, Aloe for when you have gotten to much sun but refused to admit it. AC and Fans work tremendously. Very roomy. Kitchen has everything you need to cook either indoors or out on the the 5 BBQ Grills that are Oceanside or poolside. Being able to watch the Green Sea Turtles swim and feed so close to the shore was a bonus. The owner along with the property manager made us feel as this was my own property. Will definitely be back again at the same property and will recommend this location to anyone wanting a great vacation to Maui.

We have stayed at many places in Maui and have found our sweet spot at this unit in Kahana Sunset. This was our 3rd stay at this unit. Everything is so convenient and is the perefct place for our family. The kids enjoy the pool and beach within such close proximity. My wife and I enjoy some time alone because we can watch them play from our balcony. We all enjoy the beach out front, snorkeling with the turtles and bodyboarding/skimboarding with the kids. We barbequed nearly every night and enjoyed many amazing sunsets. The owner truly has done an amazing job making this unit so cozy and comfortable. We are planning another trip out here next year already!

We had a great stay at "A Honu World" with myself, husband, 16 month old son and two 12 year olds. The beach out front was absolutely perfect for the baby to play in the sand and the girls had a great time snorkeling. We enjoyed the pool as well and the property itself was well maintained and clean. The house was well appointed with all necessary cooking items and plenty of beach items such as chairs, boogie boards, snorkeling equipment and towels. We did use the pack n play which was helpful as we didn't have to bring or rent one but one side of it required a good flick of the wrist to get it to lock open. We did bring our own crib sheet. There are two stories in the unit, so we had to block off our adventurous and exploratory toddler by using chairs to keep him off the stairs. We did do a quick baby proofing by relocating items within reach (vases, remotes, etc) and blocking cords/outlets with chairs or the ottoman. If we did come again, we would consider renting a baby gate and high chair to make things a bit easier. The separation of the bedrooms is nice and offered excellent privacy with the girls in one room and us with the baby in the front/master bedroom. We also greatly appreciated the washer/dryer access which allowed us to pack lightly. Nice handheld/wireless Dyson vacuum to keep the floors clear from sand build up. Great local restaurants/markets within walking distance or a short drive. Overall, highly recommend for your visit to Maui! Mahalo for a wonderful stay, we hope to visit again!

My family had a blast staying here! The condo was perfect for us (4 adults and 1 child). The complex is right on the water, gorgeous views, good snorkeling, great place to paddleboard or kayak. I paddled north to a neighboring cove and swam with a BUNCH of sea turtles! The condo is close to so many awesome beaches, restaurants, shops, etc. We had a little hiccup when checking in, but Carol (the property manager) responded right away and was available throughout our entire stay! She gave us some great recommendations and was super helpful with anything we needed.

We absolutely loved our stay at this property! It has great space for our family, an amazing view and we spent tons of time in the kids pool. We truly couldn’t have picked a better option for our first trip to Maui. Thank you so much!
