Our condo have the best view from our top floor penthouse condo compared to all the other studios, yes ours is the best. All the other studios on the lower floors do not have the view we do, that includes most of the one bedroom condos in the building. If you're going to rent a studio condo at the Royal Kahana this is the one you want. It has incredible views of the ocean and the island of Molokai and don’t forget the sunsets. In the winter from October 10th to March 10th the sun sets in the south so you can’t see it from our condo, our condo looks to the northwest. At that time you can go down to the pool deck or the yard and watch the sunset from there.

Our condo has Air-Conditioning, free Wi-Fi, washer and dryer in the condo and the resort has recently remodeled the pool area. Our condo has been recently renovated too.

The Royal Kahana is an ocean front resort on the Kahana Bay. Access to the shoreline and the beach in front of the Resort can be limited at times from the sand washing out due to king tides and winter storms. We normally have access to the shoreline and a small beach in spring the summer and in some of the fall months, every year is different. I cannot promise you there will be a beach when you get there so If needed you can access the beach at the other end of the Kahana Bay by using the public access just a short walk down the sidewalk two resorts or by using the resorts next door beach access.

The Royal Kahana's pool is heated and there is lounge chairs around it and lounge chairs on the grass around the front of the resort right next to the shoreline for sunbathing or watching the beautiful sunsets. Also you can use the Exercise Room the Ping-Pong Table, Shuffleboard. We also have five barbecue grills on property for you to use.

Communication with our host was great. The unit was a studio, so it was smaller than what we usually stay in. But it was so well laid out, and there were so many nice details that it worked really well. Watching whales from the lanai was a favorite activity every day. Even if it wasn't whale watching season, just enjoying the beautiful water would be nice.

Very impressed with this condo and how well it was maintained and set up, so many nice little touches including beach chairs, a cooler, basic items for cooking, and binoculars for checking out the view. Great views of the ocean (keep an eye out for turtles that swim by!) and the surrounding area. The pool and lawn area around the building were a great spot to relax in the evening after a day at the beach. Easy walk to the beach and restaurants/shopping.

This is the second time staying at this condo of mikes. We love it. He is very attentive and easy to work with. He let us know information about the island before we went on the trip. Mike is the best host out there.

We loved everything about the place. The location is great, the building facilities are super low key and extremely clean. Not many people on the beach and very calm. The apartment itself was very clean, fully equipped and even had an updated guidebook that we referred to often. Excellent communication with Mike before, during, and after the stay. Overall perfect!

The condo has a generous balcony with comfortable seating. Upgrades and cleanliness in the condo make it feel comfortable. I would choose this condo again when returning to Maui. The beach is eroding but there is the option of convenient ocean access for a quick dip in the ocean.

Stayed with my husband & it was perfect for us. With a stove & refrigerator we had breakfast in & enjoyed the beautiful view. We could see turtles in the ocean from our balcony. We used many of the amenities like the beach chairs, cooler & beach bag. Had a wonderful time. I wish I could do it all over again!

We stayed for a week in early June and everything was great. The condo smells super clean, is appointed with nice little extras such as sunscreen, cooler, beach chairs, plenty of tissues and other amenities most condos force the guest to purchase. Communication was fast, responsive, and super informative. The staff at the Royal Kahana are all very receptive and friendly and there's fresh coffee and filtered water in the lobby area for daily use. The water machine was a lifesaver as the local water is fairly undrinkable but the filtered water dispenser allowed us to fill gallon jugs in seconds and we stayed well hydrated. The condo is easy to access and we had zero issues. The only negative of the whole stay was the endless groundskeeper work and daily trash trucks; the leaf blowers and back-up alarms start early and it wouldn't have been a huge issue had we not left our door and windows open to listen to the waves each night. I realize it takes an enormous effort to maintain such lovely grounds and properties but each day it went on for at least an hour starting in the morning so just be prepared. Another big plus to this condo location is it's a 2-minute walk to Maui Brewing which has great food and beer!!

It was absolutely the best view for the price that it was and I liked the location. All the amenities were included and the owner was very communicative. There is a view of another condo in front of you but you are taller than it so it didn't bother me.

Mike's condo was beautiful, clean, and thoughtfully appointed. He includes many conveniences to make your stay more comfortable. He offers plenty of literature prior to your arrival and the check in/out process was very smooth. The location was very easy to find and parking was not a problem at all. Great views from the balcony and sleeping next to the ocean waves was refreshing. I definitley recommend his place.

To say I loved our stay here would be an understatement, it was absolutely perfect. One of THE cleanest VRBO’s I’ve stayed at. The pictures do not do it justice as that view is to die for, especially at sunset. I spent a lot of time watching the waves, turtles, sunsets and even some whales! The location is close to multiple shops and eating establishments. We didn’t use the pool but did sit poolside one afternoon and it seemed very nice. There are plenty of beaches to choose from depending on what you’re looking for so do a bit of research before heading out. I had great communication with the owner when needed and if I ever make it back to Maui I will definitely stay here. Thanks for letting us enjoy the best of the best at your place!

Experience was very good. The communication prior to the trip was very good. I even had a couple of questions for Mike and called him and he answered right away and we had a great conversation. The studio is clean. Perfect for a couple. My girlfriend commented that Mike take care of little things discussing the details. Priced right close to the places we like to go. Thank you, Mike.

Wonderful apartment with great view of the sea. It was very clean and tidy. The chairs on the balcony were great. Everything is newly renovated. The bed was the best! We enjoyed our stay very much.

We had a very relaxing time, enjoyed listening to the ocean, and saw honu almost daily at this lovely condo. It was super clean, attractive, thoughtfully stocked, comfortable, everything worked, and is in a great location. The VRBO listing and photos matched the actual condo. The owner's communications were friendly, well-timed, clear, accurate, and detailed, pre-empting the need for us to ask questions or waste time figuring out things. We highly recommend this owner and this condo.

We enjoyed our stay at Mike's condo. Clean, updated interiors, beautiful ocean view, good location. This condo had all the amenities that we needed for our week long adventure in Maui. The hallways of the building look a bit dated, but that is a minor detail and did not take away from our wonderful stay in the condo.

The condo is well-equipped for your stay. Its location is ideal. You can watch the sunset, water sports, and ocean from the balcony. It's also centrally located for all that west Maui offers. While we had a car and drove ourselves to the beaches each day, we could easily use Lyft on the evenings we wanted to enjoy dinner out. Mike communicated often with all of the details. We will definitely stay here again. Our Maui vacation was amazing, and Mike's place was a huge factor in how much we enjoyed ourselves.

Best VRBO experience ever! Firstly the host Mike goes above and beyond to explain everything you will need to have a smooth transition from airport to his beautiful condo. I wish we had more time actually in the condo to enjoy the breathtaking view! The condo is well equipped with everything you need and is super clean and comfortable. Can’t wait to come back! Mahalo Mike!

Honestly the room is 10/10! The views were breathtaking, we woke in awe each morning. The property is also nice, we sat at the lawn chairs to watch the sunset and easy access to the beach. The room had beach chairs, water boards, and cooler which made it supper convenient for us. It room has basically everything that you needed for an enjoyable stay. The room comes with the best host hands down. Mike checked in with us to see if we needed anything and was very helpful. Oh yeah, we forgot our passports and Mike made sure we got those back. Definitely booking this room again!

First, the owner,Mike, is amazing. In communication to his hosting.Everything a person would need on vacation he thought of and provided in his beautiful and spotless condo, from all the complimentary amenities, really comfortable bed, to an incredible view from the balcony that provided a great place for whale watching. The condo binoculars gave an up-close and excellent view of a pod breaching! Unfortunately, my wallet was stolen at Whaler’s village on our 2nd day, so we were without the obvious, but also our access code to the condo-No worries , though ;Mike to the rescue. Luckily, my husband had Mike’s number, called , and Mike got us in immediately! My hope is to come back to Maui and book ahead far enough to get more than 3 nights here- Again,Mahola Mike until we return …

We stayed in Mike's condo for our honeymoon this past week. It was such a perfect stay! Mike gave us excellent instructions for check in and check out. He provided recommendations for our week as well. Mike provided everything we needed including chairs, cooler, beach towels and condo necessities. We loved watching the turtles and whales from the patio each day. Beach was right next to pool as well! It was the perfect location and the best VRBO we have stayed in.

We enjoyed our stay at the Royal Kahana Resort. Mike was clear with his instructions in the Information Sheet he sent, and we had no problems, whatsoever. The view was amazing, the condo was clean, and we enjoyed all the extra touches for our stay. Thank you!

We stayed here for a week. It was everything we had hoped for! Mike's place is perfectly clean. There are many nice, thoughtful amenities. We were there in March and watched whales from the Lanai all day long everyday. There were also turtles. We had great Maui adventures including snorkeling, kayaking, the road to Hana and lots of delicious food. This made a great "home base." We started and ended each day on the Lanai. In the morning drinking coffee and watching the sky change color as the sun came up; in the evening, watching gorgeous sunsets. Highly recommend this spot!

From the second we walked into this condo we were blown away from the panoramic views. It was hard to leave the condo every time we were going to do something. We were really lucky during our trip as it seemed whales were breaching every couple seconds. You would just see blowholes everywhere. The binoculars are such a nice touch. The space itself was great. The bed and pillows were very comfortable. The shower has great! The condo is fully stocked with everything you might need which was such a nice plus compared to many other places. Parking could be an issue depending on what time you get back in the evening, but other than everything was wonderful!

Short and sweet: We loved the condo. Very clean, comfortable bed, small but functional kitchen area, easy communication with owner. Did I mention the $1,000,000 view? To quote Arnold, “I’ll be back!”

What a great place to get away from the hectic work world. The condo is very comfortable and the location is perfect. Beach &, pool right there, great places to eat within walking distance, Lahaina just a few minutes drive. Views and sunsets that can't be beat. We already booked it again!

We enjoyed every minute of our stay on Maui, and loved coming back to Mike's lovely condo after sightseeing or going to the beach! We had everything we needed, and more. Pretty Hawaiian decor, great breezes(has AC but we only used 2 times), comfy bed, soft sheets and towels, washer and dryer, if needed, on and on. BUT, our favorite was the amazing view of the Pacific and island of Molokai!!! Great balcony, too! Thank you, Thank you to Mike(friendly and helpful host) and team for sharing your piece of Hawaiian paradise!!!! Hope we can return soon. Lisa and Ken, FL



May 2018
This was our 2 stay at Mikes condo on Maui. He is very helpful and has a great place to stay. Pictures are accurate, it has the best view at the Royal Kahana. The beach chairs were great and loved the binoculars to look at the turtles down below in the sea. This condo has all you will need and much more. Clean and well maintained and great location. Hope to be back again in a few years again.

We first stayed at this condo in May, 2014, and loved it. During our second visit to Maui, it was unavailable so we rented another unit in the same building which was very nice but we preferred #1204. So, when planning our third trip to Maui, we planned ahead and were able to rent our preferred unit. Yay! The owner, Mike, is incredibly easy to work with as he is very communicative and helpful with any questions or concerns you may have. The unit is clean and spacious. The bed is comfortable and only needs some newer, firmer pillows. We were able to see whales from the lanai each day and the binoculars that are supplied are great. The kitchen is convenient so you don't have to eat all of your meals out. The beach chairs are of great quality and comfortable for those of us who are getting older! The bathroom has a large counter for your personal items and the shower is beautiful. We love having the washer and dryer available and appreciate the supply of detergent and dryer sheets. I can't say enough good things about this condo! We look forward to returning next time we make a trip to Maui!

Clean and roomy condo with great amenities. Morning coffee out on the lanai with the incredible view of the ocean and Molokai in the distance was a great start of our mornings. Excellent customer service from the start from Mike as he answered all our questions and offered great suggestions for our visit. Great location with surfing/snorkeling supply shops, pubs and restaurants close by. Dollie's across the street is a great local pub with a fun atmosphere and great pizza. I look forward to returning here again and would highly recommend this little jem to friends and family.

My boyfriend and I stayed in this condo for one week and it was perfect. The view from the lanai is amazing. We had breakfast on there every single morning, which was the perfect way to start our day. We also enjoyed the little beach in front of the condo. It was the perfect spot to go to sit on the sand and watch the sunset. Also, the outdoor shower right by the pool house made it super easy to clean off before heading back into the condo. The unit itself, from the bathroom, to the kitchen, bedroom, etc. had everything we could've needed and more for the whole week. I definitely recommend booking this condo. Mike was also very attentive and made sure we were comfortable during our stay. Couldn't of asked for a better owner or room! Thanks again Mike!

We spent 10 incredible days in Maui with this condo as our homebase. The condo was fantastic. Clean, bright and well set up. Everything you need for the beach is there for you. Being situated on the 12th floor allowed us to enjoy the views of the early morning sun streaming through the clouds above Molokai from the lanai as we sipped our morning coffee. In the evening we would see the island lit up by the setting sun as we sipped our wine and wound down from another day in paradise. We fell asleep every night to the sounds of the waves on the beach below. The fully outfitted kitchen was wonderful and allowed us to enjoy our own cooked meals. But the location is very near many wonderful restaurants in the area. The building itself was clean and well kept. There was always someone at the concierge desk if we were looking for something. Mike is a great owner and always goes the extra mile. He answered all our questions and dealt with our concerns. We would highly recommend anyone interested in visiting the Kahana region of Maui to consider staying here. You will not be disappointed.



November 2016
Love this place! We were here three years ago and liked it so much we came back! The view is just so wonderful. The balcony is a breathtaking view! We love the location. Close to all the good restaurants and shopping and the Golf Course is right there also. Mike is so easy to talk to. All the amenities are right there. Very clean and nice. Just perfect for our Maui getaway. We just celebrated our 20th anniversary there and my birthday. Just a perfect place for it.

My wife and I celebrated our 25th anniversary for 8 days in the condo. It was perfect. If you want to be with all the crowds, this is definitely the wrong place. The condo was peaceful, well appointed, well stocked and a great jumping off point to the local attractions. Mike was available before, during and after our stay and was a pleasure to work with. Views were awesome. Napili Beach 5 minutes north is awesome, but get there early. Would stay here again in a heartbeat and I recommend it to anyone looking for a restful stay and good value. Thanks Mike for everything.

We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay! My husband & I absolutely loved the condo, it was perfect. The views from the lanai were amazing! We enjoyed having coffee every morning on the lanai, as well as enjoying the sunsets every night. The location was perfect for us. There was a great little beach bar & grill next door that had great happy hour food and drinks. Our favorite beach was only a 5 minute drive up the road. The condo had everything you could need. It was updated nicely and very clean. The beach chairs, umbrellas, and cooler were a huge plus, we used them every time we headed out to the beach, and even on the road to Hana. Having the cooler with water and snacks was really nice. We won't need to look to stay anywhere else, this will always be our place! Mike was great to work with. He always responded right away, answered any questions and gave great advice about the area.
