It doesn't get much closer to the ocean than this! Kahana Reef is just steps away from the water, with amazing views of the ocean and the islands of Molokai and Lanai. Whether you lay in a chair on the grassy front lawn, sit at the lanai, walk to the sandy beach next door, or take a dip in the pool, you can hear the peaceful sound of the ocean from everywhere on this property. It is a smaller complex with masonry construction, which adds to the peace and quiet of it all. It’s also centrally located between Kapalua and Kaanapali, for you to enjoy all that West Maui has to offer. It’s an amazing location for a relaxing getaway.
Guess how much we have changed our cleaning practices since Covid-19 came along? Not at all! That's because we have always taken the time to provide unequaled care with our housekeeping. We sanitize every light switch, every handle and every surface-every time. We even change the mattress pad and wash all our comforters and blankets with every guest; our cleaners say it's "unheard of".
Our property is Owner operated and maintained, which offers a level of care that you won’t get with a management company. We care that each of our guests feels at home while visiting Maui.
This is a spacious top floor, 611sf, one bedroom, one bathroom unit. The kitchen is fully equipped and has granite countertops and newer appliances. The bedroom has a king-sized bed, and there is a queen-sized pull-out sofa bed in the living room. With new finishes, new bedroom furniture, "Westin Heavenly" mattress and box spring, 70" television and much, much more, you'll get the most comfortable, oceanfront stay at an affordable price.

Our stay was absolutely wonderful. The view of the ocean is as pictured - we could see whales everyday right from the balcony. We had everything we needed. Just a note, there are no condiments other than salt and pepper, so if you plan on cooking a lot, you might want to pick some up. Kitchen was fully equipped with everything we needed. The condo was quiet so it was a great place to be at the end of a long day of sightseeing. Would definitely stay here again!

My wife and I have stayed in a least 50+ VRBOs all over the world. Bree and David’s condo was the best. First of all, they are kind and gracious hosts. They kept in contact with us for many months before our stay. When the fire destroyed parts of Maui they assured us that since we were coming in January that we would be fine. Their condo is decorated in a minimalist style, but there is nothing you need that is not there. My wife spent hours every day watching whales swim through the channel. The condo is extremely comfortable and cleaned in a superb manner. We were ready to write an excellent review the moment we walked through the door. It is furnished with a large, clear LG TV that has perfect reception. The furnishings are all comfortable, especially the king sized bed. Parking is easy and the laundry is right downstairs. We could not be any happier than we were to stay in this lovey condo. The views are absolutely stunning all day long. Thank you Bree and David for a remarkable stay

Located right on the water near beaches and local shops. LaHaina was off limits due to the terrible fire in August. There is a lot to see and do,renting a car is a must from the airport. There is no A/C in the unit,but the prevailing winds kept us comfortable. The tourism time is about to start,businesses are just getting opened back up after not having power and drinkable water in some areas. We were all supplied with all the utilities. Had a great week of relaxing,entertained by the sea turtles, dolphins, dugout canoes and surfers. Be sure to visit Slaughterhouse beach, great swimming,snorkeling,and watching sea life.

We had a very enjoyable stay. The unit was clean and has everything that you need to make yourself at home. The bed is very comfortable, the kitchen has everything that we needed to prepare meals. The complex is well maintained and all the neighbors that we encountered were very friendly. I highly recommend this unit. Dave and Bridgett make it so easy because everything is so well organized. Thank you so much…. Mike

Clean and easy to access condo. Even got to swim with turtles right outside the condo in the reef! Only downside was no air conditioning. We would definitely go back!

The property was exactly as advertised. Dave and Brigette respond to all questions right away. The entire process was communicated and very smooth. The property is an amazing location! Close enough to all the things we wanted to see and do. The views can't be beat. I would recommend this property to anyone wanting to relax and enjoy Maui. Thanks for the memories!!

This condo was perfect for our stay. We loved the top floor with a birds eye view of Lanai, the sunsets and the turtles just below us. The condo had everything we needed such as beach chairs, a cooler, ice packs, etc. The bed was heavenly and sheets were extra soft. We meet great folks at the pool and around the grounds. Everyone was very friendly. This is our 3rd time staying at this condo complex but by far, this unit was the nicest and worth the top floor experience. We will be back!

I recommend staying here. Everything about this property is amazing. Clean, quiet, fantastic view and location. We saw turtles and whales right out in front. There was easy access to the beach beside it. Beautiful sunsets in the evening. Having no A/C wasn’t a issue. The breeze and the fans were enough to keep cool. We will definitely miss it.

Property was clean, and easily accessible. Incredible view of the ocean from the little deck, sitting area. We would stay there again.

This is a beautiful one bedroom condo overlooking the water. Sit from the lanai and watch the whales and turtles! Very relaxing and quiet!


Don S.
March 2023
The condo was very nice. We had a few things come up during our stay and they were all addressed and resolved promptly. One had to do with the code suddenly not working at the front door, which the owner fixed immediately by resending it. Another was that our parking pass for the complex blew out of the window of our car and the owner promptly delivered another one. We couldn't ask for better response whenever we had a question or needed to resolve an issue.



March 2023
This was such a great property, it is far enough away that it is quiet but close enough to everything so you can do what you want. The whales were amazing!!! Sitting on the lanai and drinking coffee and watching whale spouts and breaches is amazing. Leaving the doors open gives you a perfect breeze through the condo. Hosts were very responsive to any needs.

Actually thinking about booking for next year already! The view from the balcony was super nice, we enjoyed relaxing out there and watching the whales 🐋 😀. The condo had everything we needed. I was very concerned about no A/C but sleeping was fine, there,was a nice breeze. My only suggestion would be to swap out the balcony furniture with more of a high top style, my short self had to use a pillow to comfortably see over the railing.😉


Mary K.
February 2023
We loved our time here! The condo is perfect, the views are great, especially during whale season! No AC, which I feel is pretty standard for condos in Maui; but for the most part, the box fan and tower fans provided were sufficient in keeping us cool. David and Brigette were easy to communicate with, and very accommodating! Would definitely recommend their place if you’re in west Maui!

We were lucky enough to stay just over two weeks. Everything was great about the apartment, it was clean and tidy, bed was comfortable and the view was everything we hoped for. Whenever we reached out to the owners we got a swift response. Can totally recommend grabbing the beach chairs out the cupboard every morning and sitting under the tree on the little beach by the apartment. The most relaxing place to be! We did bring binoculars to get a better look at the whales and sea turtles passing by every day. And yes, we can also confirm that China Boat across the road was great. All in all a truly wonderful stay!

My husband and I stayed at Kahana Reef for one week during Christmas. It was a wonderful experience. The condo was nicely equipped and very clean. We enjoyed sitting on the lanai and watching the Humpback whales. One morning we saw two whales breaching completely synchronized three times in a row! The whale watching was so good that I even went and got binoculars to see them up close. Our last morning we were treated to a double rainbow over Molokai. We contacted David and Birgette just to let them know a few things and the response was almost immediate. I can highly recommend staying at the Kahana reef condo, you will enjoy every minute. Mahalo David and Birgette!

Very clean condo, organized, well equipped (tower fan AND box fan in the bedroom for white noise), located close to amenities but if you drive just a few miles north, it’s wide open cliffs with the waves crashing against them. Many great snorkel spots within walking distance or short drive. I will definitely stay at this property again!

Excellent Property - Poor Communication with Property Manager. We enjoyes, the location, view, and property. All excellent. Room lacking a fridge or kitchenette which we would have preffered. Overall, still very nice accomadations. Communication with the VBRO Property Manager was simply Terrible. On a scale of 1 to 10 it was a 1, just no communication at all. Still the property was very nice.

Very responsive owners. Clean property. Best for two, though pullout bed is available. More local, less touristy neighborhood. Close to Kaanapali and good restaurants. Well appointed inside. Older building.

The condo was exactly as described, very clean and felt like home. We had a problem with the wifi password and tv remote and David responded immediately and fixed the problem. We enjoyed the beautiful view, the morning rainbows, the mid day visits from the turtles and the beautiful sunsets! I would highly recommend this condo! Thanks for a wonderful stay!

The property managers were super at my questions. This was a new place for us with an ocean view. The view from the lanai was fantastic! There is a nice grassy area along the back of the condos to enjoy in a lounge chair. But if you are looking for a big beach with nothing but sand, this is not the place. It is a little down the way and a little rocky. We also needed to cool more off at night with AC. The ocean breezes were good in the main room but a little lacking in the bedroonm, although we did have fans. Overall, it was a great place to get away from the noise of tourists. Very peacefull! Thank you, Bridgett and David!

This was our 3rd stay at Kahana Reef. The location and lanai are particularly great. The building is older but the grounds are maintained beautifully and this condo in particular was renovated nicely. The bed was very comfortable. The host was amazing ensuring that our stay was a total satisfaction. Would recommend to family and friends. We will be back again!

We continue to enjoy this area of Maui. Quieter and charming. Close to many beaches that aren't as tourist driven.



March 2022
My friend and I escaped for a long weekend and had the most fabulous time at this condo. The ocean front view is breathtaking and we fell asleep to the sound of the waves every night. The kitchen was equipt with everything we needed and there were beach chairs, towels and umbrellas that allowed us to relax on the private beach steps from the condo. We would come back in a heartbeat! Thank you for this amazing gift and memories we will never forget.

Our only complaint was that the sofa was so uncomfortable just to sit on that our backs killed us. If you have had back hip or knee surgery, this unit is not for you. OTHERWISE it was absolutely perfect. We had everything we needed. The king size bed was the MOST COMFORTABLE bed we have ever had away from home. The fans and open door to the lani kept the condominium cool and fresh. The appliances worked perfectly. The rooms were updated, clean and well kept. You just cannot image how amazing the view from your lani is!!! We saw literally hundreds of whales breaching or blows from the lani. Oh and the sunsets pictures and moonlight shots!!! You are close to groceries. Don’t buy to much because you have to toss or give away your extras when you leave. The China Boat cafe across the street is the best Chinese food we have had in years. The condo has a weekly appetizer reception about 5 pm on the lawn. Bring something to share and listen to the music with your new friends. Thankfully they are mostly adults. Beach and snorkeling just below you. Perfect pool size for adults. Just too many great things about this place to put into words.

Our stay in 416 couldn’t have been better. Owners’ and past reviewers’ comments about the views were NOT exaggerated; coffee on the lanai every morning was fantastic. We’d brought binoculars & were able to watch Mama whales and their calves, some of whom were learning to do fin & fluke slaps, and some learning to breach by practicing over & over. Utterly amazing! On the practical side: The kitchen is very well equipped, the bed & pillows are very comfortable, and the China Bowl restaurant across the street was great for a night when we just wanted to stay in. We were surprised by the fact that there was no air conditioning - guess I’d forgotten to check when making the reservation. Luckily, it was January, and between mild temps., constant breezes, ceiling fans & good cross-ventilation, we were very comfortable.

What a beautiful property! The check-in was so easy. Everything was exactly as communicated. The unit was super clean and everything you might need was available - including beach chairs and a cooler! Beach access was amazing: watching the sunset was a unique experience as every night was slightly different. The location was within easy access to a variety of beaches, restaurants and shopping.

A friend and I came for a girls trip and this was the perfect property for the two of us. Location was perfect and took max 15 min to get anywhere from Kapalua to kaanapali to Lahaina. We could tell it was very clean upon arrival and the bed was very comfortable! This Vrbo had everything you would need the only thing we were missing was an umbrella but we just went and picked one up at the store down the street. Would definitely come back/recommend to anyone looking for the perfect little getaway spot.

We went to Hawaii to celebrate a handful of different occasions and choose to stay here because of the view. The views were perfect, especially the sunsets. It was a good size place for just my husband and I and it was clean and kept up well. We would definitely recommend any couples to stay here or someone with a small child. The owners communicated very well and gave us some great recommendations. The only thing I wish was that there were an extra couple of beach towels as we were there for 5 days and the towels started to smell towards the end of the trip, but this gave me an excuse to buy a towel of my own. Just a heads up the front door is heavy. I thought our code wasn't working for a bit, but realized you just have to push pretty hard to open it. Overall, great option.

This was my boyfriends and I's first vacation together and this condo made it absolutely memorable. It was super clean and inviting and the small welcome bag of goodies was much needed after our long day of flying. We did a lot of cooking together, and sunset dinners on the lanai. You can see turtles from the lanai as you sit out in the morning and drink coffee. The host was very helpful and answered my questions super quick. Beaches are fantastic, it's super quiet. Highly recommend China Boat across the street. I definitely wanna come back in the future! Mahalo!

The condo was very clean, bathroom is updated, and the view is gorgeous! Loved the green lawn out front and the ability to walk down the steps to a small beach. Kitchen had everything we needed with the bonus gift of a bag of coffee. Beach chairs and cooler were perfect. I didn’t realize no AC is a thing in Maui, so I was surprised by that. Overall, we enjoyed it very much.

Our review is impacted by the Covid restriction at Kahana Reef. On a positive note the unit is immaculately clean and well furnished. There is no A/C but has ceiling fans in bedroom and living room. No in unit washer or dryer. Pool access limited to 30 minutes once per day and no lounge chairs You have to sign up for pool time. No trade winds to cool unit down. And it was very hot in unit to the point of being unbearable There is no beachfront and you must cross private property to get to small beach. We opted not to stay at unit. I was a bit reluctant to post this review as The owner David was easy to communicate with and the board of owners are very strict with rules My wife and I might reconsider staying there at a later time

Amazing! is our 5th trip to Maui. I think I've had a pretty good sampling of what is available here. This condo blows away expectations. It's quite and SO clean. Very much though given to the traveler. Great place to decompress and just live aloha
