This place was perfect for our stay in Maui. Great location, friendly staff, ample parking, and views.. views.. VIEWS! Comfy bed to come back to after a long day of adventures and gorgeous lanai to whale watch (in season) and enjoy the beauty of Maui. Thanks for making our week in Maui truly magical with your place.
This condo is ideally located with easy access to the main road. Katana is close to everything you would want to do on the West Shore. The views from the condo are wonderful, right on the ocean. We were there in March and we spent hours on the deck watching them. The condo is small, but has everything you need with a separate bedroom. We would stay here again.
We absolutely loved our stay here at the Royal Kahana. Waking up with the sun, enjoying coffee on the lanai, and having easy access to the pool was all we needed for an enjoyable time during our first stay in Maui. The washer/dryer were an excellent bonus. Kitchen was well stocked with utensils, etc. The only challenge was parking- the spots were very small, so try to rent as small of a car as possible. (this was the same throughout the entire island, so not anything I would consider a complaint, just a point of fact).
We loved our stay at your property, it was a bucket list trip for us and exceeded our expectations!!
This place is awesome! Beautiful view, well appointed, clean, and has lots of amenities from chairs, umbrellas, kitchen supplies, towels--everything was well provided! Thank you so much! Hope we can return soon!
The property is in a great location and had a great view. The place was clean. The carpet however was very stained, the property would be great and 5 stars if a new floor like LVT was put down where carpet was and the old living room chairs were replaced. I would also recommend having a cupboard for guest to leave items like spices, this is the first property I have not seen one which required us to buy everything and also not to leave anything. Overall a very good expereince.
We had a great time, property location was perfect, and clean.
Very well appointed accommodations just as described.
Would highly recommend
Ok place, but change your listing to indicate there is no beach to enjoy. Also, maybe including a few more cooking items besides salt & pepper would have been nice. Lastly, having some beach towels would have been nice as we drove a few miles to find a beach. On the plus side, The home had a nice balcony with a great view and there was plenty of room in the home for two people to store all their belongings. The heated pool was great.
We have stayed at the Royal Kahana several times over the years and this was our best one yet. We love the Kahana area. Not as crowded as Kaanapali or Kihei. Everything you need is close by.
Only one small complaint. The ice maker in the freezer didn’t work and the ice cube trays were broken. Because we had keyless entry we didn’t have a key to access the ice machine in the basement.
Every evening we had a magnificent view of the sunset. We will definitely be back.

My wife and I had a wonderful time here it relaxing and cozy. It is definitely worth it to try it out if you like ocean front properties. She really doesn't want to go back home but it is that time will most likely visit again.
This place and view is spectacular. I experienced one little glitch with the refrigerator and the owners had someone up within hours to fix. I cannot recommend this place enough. Will be back 100%
Pool was a bit small but the view I had and the amenities in the condo outweigh that. I was in the 9th floor and the ocean view to my right was perfect! To my left I can see the mountains and the beautiful homes. Another of cool places to go nearby and very peaceful
First time to Maui and I am so in love. What a beautiful and Romantic island. The Royal Kahana was so beautiful. This resort is amazing. Our condo had a beautiful view of the beach, pool and amazing sunsets. Watch the turtles from your Lanai. Great restaurant within walking distance. Maui Brewery, Dollies and the Java Jazz are all great places we found. We did the old Lahaina luau. Highly recommend!. . Loved it all. But mostly the Royal Kahana.
This place was awesome! The beach out front worked perfectly and was the only residences on the stretch with direct access to the beach with a pool steps away. We saw turtles EVERYDAY which was awesome to snorkel with. The house itself was everything we wanted and you can see a beautiful sunset every night. In addition, we rented a car and parking was super easy to get in and out. We ubered to dinner a few times, 15 min to downtown Lahaina ($22) and less than 10 ($11) to get to Kapaula. Both areas have great options for meals. Renting a car in this area gives you quick access to the West Maui loop drive which is awesome to check out the blowhole and tide pools. If you are looking for a great walk along the coast, the coast line trail is amazing and would highly recommend Oneloa Beach which gives you the feel of a private beach as opposed to Kapalua Beach which gets crazy packed.
We would absolutely stay here again when visiting Maui! Mahalo 🤙🤙
Knock out view, lovely condo, great location... perfect in everyway. Comfortable condo that felt like home.... with an endless ocean view
We had a fabulous time. We loved the view and sounds of the ocean from the condo balcony.
The first thing that comes to mind when I think of this property is “turtles”!!! One can see turtles swim all day in the ocean from sitting on the balcony. How wild is this!!! And if one is tired of watching turtles swim, one can look straight down and watch people swim in the pool!
The views are absolutely beautiful. In the morning, the ocean is calm and no one is on the pristine beach. At night one can feel peace while capturing the sun setting behind Lanai HI. After a day at the neighboring beaches, we would come back to cook our meals and then sleep with all the windows and doors open to take in the breeze, and ocean smell and sound.
The check-in process was seamless and took less than 2 minutes. The condo was clean and stocked with basic kitchen necessities for home cooked meals. We contacted the owners twice, once on our 2nd day there for beach towels (via VRBO messages), and the other one was on our last day there when the safe wouldn’t open (via direct phone call). Both times, Shelly responded immediately and took care of the issues for us — thank you so much, Shelly!
This property is truly a gem. We will definitely try to book it again for when we return to Maui.
Thank you Shelly and Dan for sharing your home with us!
This condo is in an excellent location and its layout is close to perfect. Absolutely better than a hotel stay. Ample parking is available and the pool area is situated so that you will have great access to the beach as well. Check-in is simple and check-out is the same. Views are amazing, just what a trip to Maui is all about. We hope to do this once again sometime in the future.
This condo has a great view of the ocean and sunset!
This was a great experience from start to finish. Lots of helpful beach equipment, spacious closet, peaceful sleep, and lovely pool and outside lawn game area.
We even saw a rainbow outside out patio one morning!
Shelly and Dan sent great info on their emails and we had no issues while we stayed there.
We definitely want to come back and stay in this wonderful condo!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The view is absolutely incredible, I found myself looking forward to coming home to the condo to enjoy the view. The pool area is beautiful and kept extremely clean by the grounds staff. The pool was very warm & lovely. The bed could not have been more comfortable. Relatives of ours stayed at Kanapali Beach but I liked our area better. Less commercialized & more quaint & only 2-3 miles away.
This was a great trip for us! We would stay again for sure. The free parking is an excellent perk. The view is absolutely stunning. We saw some turtles from our balcony. Sunset and conch was so sweet too. Loved keeping the windows open at night to listen to the waves. Their fully stocked kitchen was a huge help too (supplies for cooking). We made breakfast every morning.
Our stay at the condo was nothing short of perfection! The space is exactly as described and the resort as a whole is absolutely stunning! I loved the location we were in on the west side of the island but traveling to other attractions was very simple. The condo was very comfortable with ample space. My husband and I spent our mornings on the lanai drinking coffee watching the sunrise and the paddle boarders make their way out into the ocean. I would highly recommend this condo to anyone traveling to Maui as we wills definitely be staying here again during our next trip to Maui! Thank you for the hospitality!

We had such a wonderful week staying in Kahana. A trip that has been in the making for about ten years. We enjoyed the VRBO with a fabulous lanai overlooking the ocean and awesome photo ops each night of the sunsets. We did all the touristy things like a helicopter ride over Hana and even landing in the rainforest, a pineapple and distillery tour, snorkling, Haleakala at sunrise and The Road to Hana right after. Lahaina is a great little town and close to this VRBO. Would rhighly recommend this place. Thank you!
This property was wonderful for our family vacation, with beautiful oven views. Shelly and Dan were very helpful with any questions and responded very timely. We would stay here again .
Super nice place! Loved it and will hopefully be back! Only issue was water heater was kind of in and out, but definitely wasn’t the fault of anyone. Highly recommend! :)
Very clean, great views, and very comfortable. It looks just like the pictures. The kitchen appliances are nice, the beach chairs were great to have, and the view of the ocean from the bedroom is amazing.
The only thing I didn't realize is that while you have an amazing ocean view, you can also look down and see the pool. It seems like units on the other side have a view of the ocean without seeing the pool. It wasn't a big deal to us- we like to people watch!
My one complaint is that the code to open our door stopped working at 10:40ish. We had a late flight so we were trying to stay as long as possible. The lock is supposed to change at 11. My husband went to take out the trash and couldn't get back in! If I hadn't been in the room we would have been locked out with all of our things locked inside. I'm sure the owners would have helped out if that happened - but it was unexpected.
