The views are amazing it’s a short walk to quick eats and Sharyn was very responsive. I would love to stay here again!
Would stay here again.
We had an absolute great time this one was so well set up for a spectacular vacation. Outside we got to see the ocean as well as several sea turtles. Communication with the host was quick easy and very kind. When we return to Hawaii we will definitely stay at this property again.
Great Complex, very clean, at the waters edge. 100% as advertised. Will stay again.
We absolutely loved our stay here. It was a little higher on the price range, but beach front property can’t be beat. It was lovely and quaint and perfect for our visit.
We had a delightful time!!
Great condo in a great spot in Ka'anapali! What makes this unit special is its ground floor location - just a few steps from the back patio and you are right at the edge of the ocean.
The property location is the best. We have stayed in Kanhan Reef several times. This was the first in this unit. The kitchen had all the needed items to cook with and was stocked with plenty of trash bags. There is a need for an upgrade in the bathroom. The shower curtain fell down twice and there is no grip handle in the tub. This is good to have for older persons. The property has all that is needed for days at the beach. We were unable to turn off the fan in the bedroom with the control on the wall. Had to unplug it.
Beautiful location, even better than the photos. Ground floor access is very convenient with bags, etc. Being able to walk straight out from the living room onto the lawn is really nice. Everything is clean and tidy, and the home book describing the property and surrounding area is a thoughtful touch. The overall feeling is like being at a friend's home, so much more personal and comfortable than a hotel room.
The only (very minor) point of possible improvement is the check-in. I may have missed it somewhere, but while we had an access code, the number of the condo was not provided, and so I had to call the host for this information. Perhaps this is security-related, which is understandable. Luckily it was a reasonable hour and so a quick phone call and all was OK.
Last min trip to Maui for some business and this unit was available. Super easy booking with great communication. I am very familiar with the area and the location is in Napili at the north end of Lower Honopiilani Rd. that is super quiet and walking distance to Maui Brewing company, Hawaiian Village coffee, Miso Phat and Dollies Pub. Walk out on to the Lanai, there is a small lawn and then the seawall with the ocean lapping below. Adjacent to the BBQ's for convenient grilling. Facing west so you'll have amazing sunsets every night.
Amazing location and property. Would love to visit here again!!
This is the second time we have stayed at Kahana Reef, first time in this unit. We can’t get enough of the location and amenities it has to offer. You wake up to whales jumping out of the water and in the evening you watch the sunset while the turtles come visit. We got engaged out front by the sea wall! It was the perfect setting. The condo has chairs, umbrellas, snorkel gear and more for your beach adventures. The unit inside has a lot of kitchen stuff which is a plus! We used the blender a lot. The only thing missing is an AC unit. There is a breeze that comes through but it can get hot. Thank you for letting us use your home.
We will definitely consider Kahana Reef for our next Maui vacation. We love going to beaches and it’s the perfect location.
Place works great for a a quick stay to Maui
Open the sliding door and sit on the porch less than 50 feet from the Pacific Ocean and fantastic sunsets. Need a beach? Turn right for access to a small beach area. Walkable to nearby restaurants and grocery stores. Easy drive to other sites. Condo has everything you’ll need although the decor is a bit dated (more like a dear great aunt’s place). Owner promptly responded to a question about the address and was very pleasant.
We had the time of our lives there ! Everything was perfect from day one ! The condo and it's location where over our expectations ! The hosts were really kind and helpful as well !!
Thanks again for everything
This one is cute. With nice access to a small beach spot. Sand is nice and perfect for our kids. Plus this space has a cool story to it. (You can read it’s history in a folder under the coffee table) great view. Saw tons of turtles and whales. And one monk seal overall very happy with the space
Very comfortable condo with stunning views! We love Kahana Reef and would absolutely stay here again. Condo is well equipped with everything you’ll need. Thank you for opening your space to us!
We couldn't have been more happy with our accommodations! Seriously, was a beautiful location and waking up each morning being able to walk out to that view, made it so very memorable for us! We are from Sandpoint, Idaho and reading the owners story in the book, made us feel like we were staying at a friend's house. Once we got home and told our inlaws that the owners we N. Idaho locals and shared his name, my father in law told us he knew Mr. Majors. My father in law was in law enforcement and had worked with him a few times on some things. Said he was a great man.
We will definitely make this property our go-to for future visits!
The condo was in the perfect spot and couldn’t have asked for better views. Thanks for sharing this small piece of paradise! We had a great time during our stay.
This was my first trip to Maui and I wanted a place that was away from a busy, touristy area like Lahaina but still close enough to town for me to access restaurants and shops. And this was THE PERFECT PLACE! The ocean was in my backyard and to sleep listening to the waves every night and watching the sunrise every morning was magical🥰 Sharyn and family, thank you for lending me your home. I felt so comfortable and at peace here and I think you’ve decorated the house so, so well. It honestly felt like my own home. Thank you!
Our week’s stay was relaxing and convenient. The property had everything we needed!
The property is in a great location and has wonderful views from the back. It’s in an older 70s building and the grounds are well kept.
The condo unit is a bit dated and could use more refurbishing. The bedroom is very small and a bit claustrophobic.
There was major construction going on in the building one floor up which was not disclosed to us prior to booking, and looked like it had been ongoing and will continue. Very loud jackhammering and sawing from 8:30a-5p Monday-Friday during our stay making hanging around the property unpleasant during those hours. After complaining about lack of disclosure of this prior to booking, the owner did give a 5 nignt refund. However I would not have selected the property had I known of the noisy work being done. We don’t get many Hawaii vacations so made the best of it.
Our family had a short two night stay at this property and we really enjoyed our time there as a family, especially being so close to the ocean, seeing the sunset and the turtles made it extra special.
The suite is decorated very well and made it feel cosy and welcoming. Even though there was no air-conditioning we were able to keep the suite cool enough to sleep in with fans provided. - which is important as our son doesn’t do well in heat at night, but we were successful in having comfortable sleeps. We were visiting in early Nov.
We would return!
Cute, clean condo with everything you need. Communication with the owner was good. Great location in Napili.
We were unable to stay. Had to move and pay again fir some where else. At 62 and 68 yrs of age AC was a must and we were not aware that there was none.
Nice apartment with great views (sunsets are superb) and great location
Thank you for sharing it with us!
Great place !!!
We loved our home away from home for 7 days! Great view every morning and view of the sunsets every single evening! Right in front of the laundry room, so it made it easy for us to wash clothes. The only thing is that there is no AC, other than that our stay was great.
Thanks for the Honeymoon it was freaking awesome! Literally couldn’t have been in a better spot! Received this from my son after his week stay with you!!
This was the first time our family used VRBO and the entire process was hassle-free and easy. The location was just where we wanted to be- close to our favorite beaches (Napili, Kapalua, and Ironwood), the grocery stores, farmer’s market, and Lahaina. The view was amazing as soon as you step in the front door. It was so nice to have so many amenities including a full kitchen and beach supplies (umbrella, beach chairs, boogie boards). It was so comfortable and cozy that we felt at home right away. We highly recommend staying here.
We picked the perfect place to stay to celebrate our 10th anniversary. It’s on the first floor so getting in and out the back is easy and convenient. The view out the back is gorgeous: we witnessed beautiful sunsets, turtles every morning, couples proposing and much more.
The room is cozy, it had everything we needed in the kitchen to make a meal and all the gear for snorkeling, riding the waves or even the water proof phone cases to take underwater videos.
Moreover, the place is within walking distance to most attractions or a short ride to all the beaches.
Unfortunately, we accidentally left our packed-for-the-airport food in the fridge, so hopefully the next people will enjoy it!
What a gift we lived at this adorable and my granddaughter just loved it! it had all the amenities and the location is superb! I definitely would like to come back! Thank you so much for letting us stay here! 🌈❤️sad to leave 😰
Great communication with owners, perfect ocean view, residents were also warm and welcoming. Unit is right across from laundry, that’s a bonus traveling with family. Walking distance from China boat restaurant And other areas . Would stay again
A perfect location and a great place to stay. The beach is virtually private with few people. The snokeling is decent with lots of fish and the occasional turtle. Our only regret was not booking for longer.
You’d be hard pressed to find a better view than what this condo offers from the back porch. The pictures previewing the condo honestly don’t do it justice. Too many pros to mention. Only con: not much of a beach to access except for in the calmness of the early morning or in the evening. Loved our stay. Great location to stores, restaurants, beaches, etc…Can we talk you into selling it!?! We will definitely be back. One of the best vacations we’ve been on. Thank you for the hospitality.
We had a great stay on this beautiful property. The area was quiet which made it easy to relax and the views were perfect! The sunset was amazing from the patio.
We had a great stay!
We really liked the condo, great location and we had a wonderful stay. Small complaint: There was no real TV service (it would have been nice to have a basic cable hookup.) Other than that, it was clean, opened up to a beautiful view of Molokai and Lanai, really lovely.
We had a great time here! The place was clean, comfortable and the view was spectacular. Thank you!
Being on the ground floor, we had immediate access to the lawn and ocean views. Turtles visited in the afternoon. The sea wall provided an ideal spot for our dinner table. Condo had all the amenities needed and more. Only 8 minutes to one if our favorite beaches, Slaughterhouse Beach. Great location. Yes, we would love to visit again.
The ground floor/ walk out condo is exactly what I wanted from my trip to Maui. It was cozy, had everything we need and with the ocean just 10 steps off the back porch, you truly felt like you were on vacation. We spent nights hanging by the sea wall watching sea turtle, and days just 50 yards north on the beach. This is a gem of a listing.
Very lovely quiet property with beautiful views.
Great week! The place had everything we needed and provided the perfect backdrop for sunsets, turtles and great evening conversations on the lanai.
Clean, great view and location. Surprised by a welcoming gift! Enjoyed reading about the condo and the family! The books about the island were very informative. Would 100% recommend and return.
Amazing views from the property, clean, close to great snorkeling
always fast reply by the owners, very kind and helpful persons.
the appartment was very clean and had everything we needed in kitchen, bath living and bedroom. finnes, mask snorkel and bodyboard werr also available. it is lovely decorated so you fell like at home.
great to sit outside with seaview and hear the waves. 1 -3 turtles where swimming the evening close to the boarder. near nice small beach or you can drive to one of the many other beaches within 5-20minutes. would defenitely come back!
Sharyn was very responsive to our needs. Great location for walking and/or driving to the beaches. Comfy bed. All the amenities we needed to have an enjoyable time! Thank you!
We enjoyed the beautiful location on the water, friendly guests, and snorkeling with turtles. The accommodations were very comfortable. Kitchen was well equipped. Sunsets, whale watching and relaxing evenings on the patio were a great way to enjoy dinner.
Absolutely fabulous location for this cosy condo. We enjoyed every minute.
I would say that some instructions for the kitchen wouldn’t go amiss. Couldn’t work the microwave and the oven was a challenge.
Thought the extra cleaning charge was excessive.

Very clean! There is a beach just next door & there are beach chairs, beach umbrella, snorkeling gear & boogie boards in the closet. So wonderful not to have to rent them! We saw a bunch of whales just off the coast while sitting on the back porch. We even saw a few jump!
We had the most amazing time! The view from the property is breathtaking - unlike anything else in Maui! The ease of being on the ground floor was awesome. The living area is very spacious. Hosts were great to work with. Highly recommend!
Perfect location right on the water and not far from multiple beaches! Great location in the neighborhood too. The condo was clean, well decorated, and the perfect amount of space for 2 of us. The beach chairs and other included beach items were a nice touch. No complaints at all!
This was a lovely place, perfect for a couple but not so great for two adults sleeping in separate beds. The pull-out couch might be fine for a child but was very uncomfortable for my 68 year old friend who slept in it. She said the foam mattress was flimsy and she kept sinking into the springs. On the positive side, the neighbors on both sides of us were very friendly and the place was clean and well kept. We loved the view from the living room and patio.
This condo was the perfect cozy ocean front stay for our family. Clean, gorgeous views, streaming services on the TV, convenient location. Would love to come again!
Beautiful place great location .
Will definitely return.
The property was all as advertised and so much more. Wish I had the words to describe watching sunset and moon set from the patio of the room. Just extraordinary to say the least!
Our stay was great and very relaxing. Condo was clean and stocked well. The view was outstanding. Wish we could stay longer. When we vacation in Maui again we will definitely look to stay here again.

We loved staying at this place. Its close to everywhere and also few walking steps to the beach. The kitchen is fully loaded and the house is super clean. But the best is the ocean view from the condo. You wouldn't want to leave. Would highly recommend it.
My husband and I had a fabulous stay at Sharyn’s place celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary and my birthday.😊Everything was perfect I can highly recommend this slice of paradise right by the ocean! We loved our stay here and would very much like to come back in the future! There is so much to see in Maui. The road to Hana and our whale watching tour were our favorite activities, but we enjoyed just sitting on the lanai and listening and looking over the ocean! Mahalo! Edina and Gabor
We had the pleasure of staying at this property for 3 nights while on our trip to Maui. We are staying at a few different places and hopping around the island, but this condo is one of the best! The location is everything- you don’t even need to leave if you don’t want to. We actually only used it to sleep but the porch, view and semi private little beach could make for its own little slice of paradise. There’s a binder inside the house with info and tips from the hosts and was very helpful. The only thing we would suggest to improve (and may well have been our error) is we did not see a unit # provided. We checked in late at night after exploring the island and we were very close to having to contact the host late at night :( we ended up figuring out which unit # based off of the wifi information. So it’s doable to figure out, but just FYI! And if it was posted somewhere, oops :) we also didn’t see a way to contact the host through VRBO, but again could be our error, and their contact info was in the binder inside so once you’re there it’s not a problem. But these things are so small, everything else was perfect! Just a heads up since the binder asked for improvement recommendations! Ps- keep the porch floor carpeted and not tiled, it was nice to not slip!
Book this condo and you won’t be disappointed! Whether you want to stay close by and relax, or just need a launchpad on your adventures, the price is right and the location can’t be beat. You cannot go wrong!
Thank you to the hosts,
Becca & Dylan from Canada
Excellent location! Just perfect.
The grounds were beautiful and ocean front. Sunsets and rainbows were amazing. Centrally located to shops and downtown Lahaina
Wow is all we can say. We had the greatest time and would stay in this condo again over any hotel! The hosts are sweet and make sure you have everything to make your trip enjoyable. The view is something you can’t beat!
This condo is absolutely stunning. Ocean front view in a quiet condo complex with a comfortable king sized bed, fully stocked kitchen, and complimentary snorkeling equipment. The shower even had good water pressure which is always a huge plus in my book. We saw a lot of turtles from the back yard and enjoyed the beautiful shady beach steps away from the back door. Great location in Kahana about 15 minutes from Lahaina. Sharyn was absolutely fantastic. She promptly responded to all my messages and was so friendly. She even has a welcome folder with recommendations of things to do in the area. We cannot wait to go back! Highly highly recommend!
This location was absolutely perfect! The ocean view, steps to the beach, and cleanliness of the condo were just perfect! Sharyn, the host, was so kind and quick to respond. We saw sea turtles, there were beautiful rainbows every morning, and the sunsets were gorgeous! If you need a place to getaway this is so peaceful. We hope we can come back again!
We enjoyed our stay at Kahana Reef #115. The room was nice and clean and being on the ground floor we were able to enjoy a quite stroll on the lawn at night and to take our beach chairs out to view the stars. A great place, easy access to the beach. We would consider coming here again.
It was a bargain that I would book again the next time I go to Maui. Peaceful water front location. Very clean and well appointed. All the amenities are there and the Hosts were excellent to work with.
A very nice 1 bR condo for 1/2 the price of all the nearby hotels.
Flawless and enjoyable from check in to check out. Super comfortable condo with a spectacular ocean view. I would recommend this condo to friends and family and would stay here a second time. Thank you for the memorable vacation! Matt & Laura
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Kahana Reef! Lovely area! Can't wait to come back again sometime!
We loved this condo! The view is simply amazing! Beautiful sunsets! Kitchen was sufficiently stocked. Appreciate the beach chairs and umbrella. Perfect Lanai for coffee in the morning , dinner at sundown, reading or just watching the ocean throughout the day.
Great location, incredible views right out of the patio.
Well furnished and updated interior, will stay here again.
We had such a fantastic time at this sweet get-away condo. Absolutely perfect location to not hassle with trying to make it to the beach. With a simple walk-out of the back sliding door, a clear few of the water and mountain is right there. Our days were maximized to relax and spend our vacation actually taking a break. The hosts were great. Clear communication, making sure everything was in order for our stay at the accommodation. The condo was clean and well taken care of. This is definitely a top recommendation!
Everything went smoothly with this beautiful Vrbo. The views were amazing from our lanai. It’s is everything and more than what we expected. I would definitely stay in this condo again.
We really enjoyed our stay. A nice quiet neighborhood. Being able to walk out the patio door right to the ocean was great. We saw sea turtles every day.
VERY nice; had and excellent stay!
The property was nice, great view and yard access. We weren’t supplied with a parking permit and there’s a big sign out front that says one is required or you’ll be towed. We didn’t get towed but that was a little stressful.
A/C would be nice, our first couple nights were ok with a good breeze and the slider open but with kids it wasn’t ideal to have to leave the door open overnight. The last two nights we didn’t get much sleep due to the heat and no breeze.
Overall it’s a nice property, if they installed a cheap A/C unit or two I would defiantly stay again otherwise I’d probably pass.
Maholo for sharing your Makana...truly a gift. We had such a wonderful experience in Maui. This place was well stocked with all the amenities we needed for our stay. Snorkel gear and boogie boards were enjoyed as well as the grill directly out back. Free parking and ground level condo was wonderful for bringing our bicycles in and out of condo each day. We've stayed in many different locations over the years in Maui and can say the value and location of this Condo was really amazing. Thanks again for our stay. Mahalo, Linda and Scott
We loved our time here - the property is ground floor and has a stunning view of the ocean, great for sunsets! There is a swimmable beach just steps away. The place was clean and had everything we needed - pull-out couch was very spacious and comfortable enough. Host was very quick to respond to any questions/needs. Not many restaurants/shops within walking distance, but great, quiet location between Lahaina and Kapalua!
It was home away from home except in Maui. Beautiful view and owners were just a call away if I had any issues. I booked thru Expedia and they didn’t let me know about construction on going Monday-Friday 8 to 3:30. So we managed to be gone around those times. But very relaxing on the weekends! Most definitely will return when construction is complete!
