☆Right on the ocean! Super Clean! Great Location! High-speed WiFi, Free Parking, NO RESORT FEES!

Fortunately, our condo was not affected by the fires in Lahaina. There are still restaurants, grocery stores, and amenities within walking distance to our condo. Front Street Lahaina is approximately 8 miles from the condo and Ka'anapli Beach/Whalers Village is approximately 6 miles from the condo.

☆ Sorry, no check-in on Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, or New Year's Day. You'll have to book and check on the day before or after the Holiday. Our Cleaning Company gives their employees the day off. Thank you for your understanding.

Our condo has been recently remodeled and is stunning! One bedroom with king size bed and a queen sleeper sofa with memory foam mattress in the living room.

The reef in front of our building is one of the premier kitesurfing and windsurfing areas on Maui. When the wind is blowing, you are in for quite a show! One of the best surfing beaches on Maui is also within walking distance. It takes a North or Northwest swell for S-Turns to work it's magic for surfing! S-Turns has both left and right break and has a sandy bottom. A typical NW swell produces 4-6 foot waves that are perfect for longboarding. This is rare on Maui!

NO SMOKING in condo or on Lanai. Smoking only in designated areas outside (in parking lot next to the street). Failure to follow this rule will result in forfeiture of your damage deposit.


Maintenance and Service Issues

Renters understand and agree that from time to time owner's maintenance staff and other contractors may enter the condo. When you leave, leave the keys in the unit. Please do not turn off or unplug the wireless Internet. If anything is broken, needs repair or you can’t find something you think should be there, please contact us.


Air Conditioning

There is no air conditioning in ANY of the 88 condos in our building. It is really not necessary in this area of the island.

We are fortunate to be in an area of the island that gets the tradewinds VERY reliably which keeps the condo at a nice temperature - usually 70-74 degrees. We bought this condo because of the area knowing that the west Maui trades blow through here. Electrical power is about 5x what it is on the mainland so choosing a location like this instead of Kihei or Lahaina where the temperatures average 10-15 degrees warmer makes a huge difference in affordability for both us and our guests.

However, there are times when the wind doesn't blow. It's rare but does happen. It's tropical here and a bit different than what you're probably used to. The temperature averages between 70-82 F during the day. It is pleasant but not stifling humid heat! We have personally experienced about 3-5 "uncomfortable" days in the five years we've been in the area so we don't want to tell you it can't happen.

We do have fans in the living room and the bedroom although we rarely use them.


BUG SPRAYING

Our Home Owners Association (HOA) for our condominium complex contracts for pest control spraying on a quarterly basis, typically the first Wednesday of February, May, August and November. Termites are the biggest problem in Hawaii and do the most amount of damage in a relatively short amount of time.

Maui is a tropical location and has a lot of unwelcome bugs; ants, termites, spiders, roaches, mosquitos, etc. The pest management company uses “safe” pesticides to treat for these bugs. The pesticides used are water based, “pet safe” and approved for application in food handling establishments. The pest management company usually posts a notice a about a week before they are on site, near the elevators and stairwells to let residents know the date and time that pesticides will be applied.

Keep all service animals and children out the area during the treatment and until the product has dried – usually about 10-15 minutes. By renting our condo, you acknowledge and accept the application and use of pesticides and insecticides on the property and within our unit. As a condition of renting our unit you will provide access to our unit when the application is scheduled. Failure to allow access to the pest management company will result in a fee of $75.00 for the pest management company to return at a later date. You will be responsible for this fee if you do not allow the pest management company access to our condominium.

If you’re at all concerned about the treatment and spraying for pests/bugs, you should consider other accommodations. Bugs are everywhere in Hawaii and almost every hotel, condominium and Homeowners Association requires treatment to ensure the protection of their home and property.
Cleaning Service

Your stay includes a cleaning service after you check out. If you desire cleaning during your stay you will need to contact Trinity Maid Service directly and make these arrangements on your own. You can contact Trinity at: 808-667-6938


Beach Gear

There are usually some beach chairs, body boards, snorkels, fins, sand toys, coolers and other stuff that you are welcome to use. This stuff is usually out on the lanai. There should be at least 4 beach towels in the condo too.

The stand up paddle boards at the north end of the condo are individually owned by others in the condo complex. Unfortunately they are not available for use.


Parking

We are allowed one parking space for our condo. If you have more than one vehicle, you will need to make your own arrangements to park the extra vehicle(s). Parking permits are required, please fill out and leave on dashboard. Fill out dates of arrival and departure on the temporary parking permit


Washer/Dryer

The Washing Machines and dryers are behind the office on the ground floor. Please clean up after yourself in laundry room after every use. Sand goes in trash, not down drain or in washers. Clean lint trap. You will need quarters to operate these appliances. The great news is that you can usually do an entire weeks worth of laundry all at once with all these washers and dryers at your disposal.

We spent 3 weeks in this beautiful and nicely equipped condo. It has everything you need for a comfortable stay, and many nice extras. Kahana Reef may be older, but it has had a recent facelift since our last stay and you couldn’t ask for a better place to stay. We enjoyed watching the whales and turtles from our lanai, using the community barbecue, and enjoying the wonderful warm pool. Rhett and Maria were very helpful and responsive when we dealt with a minor issue. We will not hesitate to book this unit in the future!

This property has excellent views. We had beautiful sunsets and rainbows during our stay. This is a perfect place for couples. We had our two younger children with us. There is a pool on site. They have on site grills available to use as well. The property managers were excellent. We had several questions and they were not only helpful but also accommodating. Tip for those that would be traveling with kids under age 10, maybe not an ideal spot. While we were there, seemed to be more older people staying there that didn't want any noise. Overall, ideal for couples.

The condo added to my Maui experience. The owner was of great help and easy to reach. I highly recommend this location.

It is a perfect condo for 2 people. Linens and towels are nice, plenty of kitchen things and I really appreciated having 4 beach towels and all the other beach accessories available. I do wish the laundry room had been open for longer hours, however and I know it has nothing to do with the owner. Overall, a great stay and the view was spectacular.

Maria and Rhetts home was exactly as described! And they were very good at communicating with us! From the time we arrived we felt at peace and relaxed! The view is amazing and the sound of the waves are so calming! Exactly what we were looking for! Location was great! We love the Aloha life style! Definitely would love to return some day!

We had a wonderful week staying at Maria and Rhett’s condo. Consistent with the other reviews, the space was clean, updated, tastefully decorated, with plenty of wares in the kitchen to prepare and enjoy about any meal. The bed was extremely comfortable, as was the other furniture. The Lanai, just a stones throw from the water, provided the perfect spot for whale watching and sunset dinners. We even had a pair of turtles at the sea wall below us. The information provided was extremely helpful…everything from great grocery and dining tips to an education on the microclimates of Maui. Though it will be nice when completed and easy access to the beach will be appreciated, the sea wall construction and detour to the beach were non-issues for us.

Location was perfect. We really enjoyed our stay. Even the construction was a non-issue. Would definitely return.

The condo was clean and updated. Overlooks the ocean. Unfortunately there was more than just construction going on. There was a large whole on the ground outside our lanai with a bulldozer and jackhammers working on the sea wall. It was so loud you couldn’t even talk to each other in the condo. Fumes were coming in from the large equipment/trucks and there is no airconditioning so we could not close the windows. I was told that the construction would not interfere with our stay but it was unbearable. To spend all that money on a dream vacation. The owners were quick to respond with our texts and emails and we only stayed 1 night and had to find a new place at the last minute. We were refunded only 1/2 our money as we were outside the limits of the contract for a full refund. There is no way I would have rented this place if I knew it was a demolition site versus some construction. Lesson learned.

We did a ton of research prior to picking this property. The hosts were great in answering questions promptly and with detail when we had them. They also provided a ton of valuable info about where we were staying and what to do. Once we arrived we found a very clean and up to date property. The bed and pillows were outstanding. The place was actually nice and quiet overall, with the only noise coming if you leave the windows open in the bedroom when a few guests were outside, but it didn't last long. The view from the lanai (balcony) is exceptional. Waves breaking a few hundred yards out, plus hitting the wall which protects the sitting area. You can see Molokai, and your own little beach just down the way. A walk of about 50 yards gets you to said beach, of which provides incredible snorkeling literally right out in front of your condo. The host has boogie boards, snorkeling equipment, and beach chairs for your use. The temperature inside cools off in about 3 minutes once you open everything up. The couches and chair are soft and comfy. There are two TV's available, one in the living room and one in the bedroom, but I couldn't tell you if they work or not since we never considered turning them on (it's Hawaii, so unless you have kids get yer rear end outside :). The physical location is great as well. It's in an area that feels more like a beach town than say Wailea which feels like the pompus Florida type location. We drove the whole island, and this is a great starting point. Our fave spots were closest to this location, so turns out we made a great choice. For the price, location, view, and accommodations this was a great choice. Jeff and Tristan from Northern CA
