Royal Kahana 1010 is a highly desirable oceanfront corner unit recently refreshed with new furniture and decor. This unit is a two-bedroom, two and half-bath oceanfront corner wrap-around lanai unit located only a stone's throw from the ocean. The 40-foot wrap-around lanai provides sweeping panoramic views south to the Kaanapali Beach Resort and north to Kapalua, with fabulous golf courses and restaurants. We supply binoculars so you can enjoy the whale season. The neighboring islands of Lanai and Molokai are only miles across the channel and add a dynamic dimension to the beautiful scenery. You fall asleep and walk up daily to the sound of the ocean outside your window. The 10th-floor condo is ideally situated on the quiet side of the building.

Two separate bedroom suites provide quiet privacy for a family or two couples, and for larger groups, the queen-size sleeper sofa allows this condo to sleep comfortably for up to six guests. The master suite features a King Sealy Posturepedic mattress, a flat-screen tv, and a separate sliding door to the lanai - perfect for those wishing to be lulled to sleep by the sound of the waves rolling in. Depending on your needs, the guest bedroom two XL twins that convert into a King. Each en suite bathroom and the powder room adjacent to the foyer provide a perfect solution for guests staying in the living room - a place for their items. A hairdryer is provided in each bathroom for your convenience.

The condo has two new central air conditioning units installed for zoned cooling in the bedrooms and main living areas. The kitchen has stainless steel appliances and granite countertops. It is fully stocked with everything one would need for cooking, plus table service for 6, a regular coffee maker and a French press, blender, toaster, and ice maker in the refrigerator. The spacious living area is furnished with new furniture, a 75" flat-screen TV, and free Wi-Fi.

The Royal Kahana Resort is the perfect setting for a beautiful, relaxing vacation. Its heated pool has many palapas for shade on the sundeck, four gas BBQs, beautifully landscaped grounds, ping pong tables, shuffleboard, and a fully equipped fitness center. A full-service activity center with highly experienced personnel is conveniently located in the lobby to assist with planning and booking your vacation excursions on Maui and the neighboring islands.

Beach information:
Don't forget to check out the daily beach access status, as the seasonal ocean current changes can affect the size and appearance of the beach directly in front of the resort. During the fall and winter, it's not uncommon that these currents sweep away a large amount of sand that gradually returns in spring & summer, based on the ocean’s current activity and our island weather pattern. This circumstance affects our guests' accessibility to the beach. When the resort access is closed, public beach access is within 5 minutes walking distance.

*Please note that a resort-wide spalling repair is underway, but rest assured that rates have been discounted to reflect this impact. So don't wait, book your stay now and experience the best of Maui's Kahana vacation rentals. They're working on various lanais around the resort until at least January 2025. Noise may be heard on the property during working hours M-F: 9 AM- 4:30 PM. Posted 8/23 & updated 1/23/24, 1/28/24, 5/11/24.

Note: The front desk collects $18/day upon check-in to receive a parking pass and pool/Gym Key Card, separate from your rental amount.

The condo was comfortable, clean, fully stocked, and a pleasure to experience. Oh and did I mention the view!!!!???? So relaxing and beautiful!!! The management company was very available and answered all questions and concerns. The only drawback about this property is that there is no beach access or availability. Short walk to small beach close by. We would definitely stay here again!!

The unit we stayed in was very nice, updated and clean. The building itself is very dated and there are doing some renovations. Our other family members were staying in units that are not privately owned and the difference is night and day. The only issue is the clothes dryer took FOREVER to dry laundry. Other than that everything was great!!

The unit was perfect and anytime we had a question, somebody got to us within minutes. I wouldn't have changed a thing for our entire stay. We won't be using anyone else from now on.

Walking through the front doors of this condo you are welcomed by the gorgeous blue panoramic views of the ocean! The lanai is spacious and had plenty of seating for the family. The condo is very nice, clean and accommodating.the air conditioning alone was so appreciated. Loved our stay and have zero complaints. And what an added bonus they don’t request you do a list of chores before checking out.

Absolutely beautiful location. Sitting on the lanai is heavenly with the sounds of the waves and watching the sea turtles out in the water. You hardly want to leave!

We loved our stay at this property. The views were spectacular! The unit was well-appointed and so lovely. The hosts were extremely communicative and responsive. We'll definitely book again for our next stay on Maui! (My only suggestion--and it's minor--is to get a different mattress in the Master bedroom. It was a little hard for our taste but others may appreciate that.) Thank you for an absolutely fantastic experience! Mahalo! 🌺

We spent 4 nights - family of five Two adults and children ages 17-20 The condo was exactly as pictures showed - we loved it The lanai was amazing - sitting at high table for coffee on lounge chair for reading or relaxing at end of day in regular chairs - and sunsets were beautiful We did not cook but there seemed everything you needed if you preferred The deforms were spacious - and bed comfortable we used the pull out as the third bed 2 1/2 baths were great for group our size There were supplies for beach if needed - chairs and umbrellas The facility had a pool and could get to beach ( not hard to climb over sand bags ) Location was convenient for excursions we did - snorkel boat ride , road to Hana, sunset at Haleakala ,luau

Room is very spacious so you can spread out. Two couple can easily stay there. Not much to do onsight - small pool; not much of a beech. But the room is great. Huge patio overlooking ocean. Beds comfortable. Hard to get AC much below about 69 but it wasn't horrible. Parking can be tight at night, but we always found a way. Convenient to elevator. Huge TV's if you like that. Kitchen had plenty of items. Extra half bath was nice. Would recommend. Quiet also.

Rating Details: The property manager was more than helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was more than happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We had an amazing stay at Royal Kahana 1010. The condo is beautiful and spacious. The lanai looking out over the ocean was the best part. We could see whales and sea turtles from our balcony! Loved the extra half bathroom. The condo had everything we needed for our stay including beach towels, sand toys, lots of beach chairs, and coolers. The only downside is the beach area in front of the building. There are sand bags to prevent erosion of the beach that you have to climb over to access the beach. There is a sign that says beach access is closed, but it is pretty much at your own risk to climb over the sandbags. We also had an small issue with the beds in the 2nd bedroom not set up as twins initially (per our request). But I notified the property management company, and they came out the next morning to separate the beds. So the issue was resolved quickly. Overall a great stay and I hope to come back some day!

Property is even better than advertised. Huge balcony allows for incredible views. Everything you need is thoughtfully provided. No need to go on whale watching tour as you can watch them right from your comfortable balcony.

Kahana is a very short drive from some of the island's best snorkeling and surfing. We will be recommending this to our friends.

It was truly an amazing thing for them to acknowledge my mistake and get my items back to me. I would not hesitate to stay here again on our next Maui adventure. Turtles all over the place and an awesome balcony to take in both sunrise and sunsets. Pool is right off the lobby and there was as much beach as you needed. Great snorkeling right out in front of the resort. I hope you enjoy the space as much as we did. Thanks again for having us.

Overall we loved this unit. The view was amazing. Observed a large variety of marine life. The management team were very nice and helpful. Our daughter and son-in-law raved about Augie’s assistance with their paddle boards during our stay. The beds were very comfortable. The unit was quiet. The kitchen had every amenity you could possibly need. The only negatives would be the cleanliness of our unit on arrival. The kitchen counters had a lot of crumbs from the previous occupants and had to be entirely wiped down. The bathroom cupboards have quite a buildup of dust on the edges that wouldn’t take very long to clean. I looked everywhere in the unit for a broom and dustpan, but never found one. You also have many glass topped surfaces but I couldn’t find glass cleaner. I don’t like streaks. One last thing would be to let renters know that the beach outside the resort is closed and shored up with huge bags. Management told us to go ahead and use the beach. Very difficult to maneuver for a 70 yo woman who recently had foot surgery. 90% of these negatives are easy fixes. Overall our stay was fantastic and I would recommend your unit. Mahalo.

Clean condo, very roomy, nice grounds, friendly workers, nice pool. The lanai is amazing, and you will see lots of sea turtles and rainbows as you drink your morning coffee. I would have given 5 stars, but there isn't a beach close to the property unless you want to climb over sandbags.

The condo had everything we needed plus more. Full kitchen, extra towels, etc. The condo was very clean and well kept. Beautiful ocean views and right on the beach. Staff was very nice and professional. I loved everything about this place. It is close to shopping and dining and not far from downtown Lahaina. I would recommend this place and hope to come back!

We loved the wrap around lanai of this 10th floor property. Lots of windows and 2 sliding glass doors showed off amazing views. It was winter, so there were many whales to watch. Bring your binoculars! Plus turtles near the shore. We loved constantly hearing the ocean waves. The unit was very clean. The kitchen well stocked with nice knives and decent pans for eggs. The AC in the entire building is out and they are waiting for a part, but it was only warm in the late afternoons. There isn't much beach on/near the property, but most everyone has a rental car to go exploring anyway. The staff working on the main floor seemed helpful and friendly.

A lovely quiet property very well equipped with whatever you need that has a fantastic view of the ocean. Several small cafes and stores within short walking distance. Only a view quick miles to Kaanapali Beach and Old Lahaina Town for more eating, shopping, beaches and tours! We would definitely stay here again!

Older concrete walls ensure a peaceful getaway in this great 10th floor condo. Host is responsive and attentive to detail. We didn't miss a lack of A/C (cooling unit destroyed in December storms) in this west facing unit never directly in the sun this time of year. We plan to go back, that's for sure.

The property was awesome. Going to Maui in January is a perfect time for whale watching. We saw numerous whales each day from the condos lanai. The oceans views from the condo were amazing. Short walk to a nice beach. Could not have ask for a better property.

We had a great time on vacation, the condo was just as shown. The unit was clean, comfortable and stocked efficiently. The staff was friendly and helpful. The only setback was that the beach in front of the property was nonexistent because of erosion. We could access the beach with a short walk through another hotel's property, however, the pictures of property did show a beach in front of our rental.

Located right across the street from a local strip mall that had all the logistical needs (including a great microbrewery, Maui Microbrewery) The view from the wrap-around balcony provided for endless views of other islands and sea life. Turtles 🐢 swam by on a regular basis. Would recommend this for any Maui vacation. We hope to return again in a couple years!

This Condo was a great place to stay. The views are amazing. The Condo was spacious and very functional. Nothing extra was needed. We took turns eating out and dining in. The kitchen was great to cook in and had everything we needed. Short walk to restaurants so didn't need to drive if we didn't want to. Short drive to more restaurants if we felt a bit adventurous. In my view the location was the best on the island. Not too busy but still close to convenience stores, snorkelling shop, etc. Both ocean swimming (out front of Condo) and on-site pool very relaxing. Just a tip in case you're interested, we hired a car for the duration of the stay and it was a great way to get around Maui. Taxi's seem few and far between. Free parking available at Royal Kahana. Plenty of parking everywhere we went.

From the moment we walked into this 10th floor oceanfront condo, it was a WOW. The views from the wrap around porch are spectacular. You see both Molokai and Lanai duing the day and a star show at night that is awesome. The location is perfect, close to Lahaina and beaches. There was two couples staying and we found the condo spacious and well appointed. What a plus having 2 king beds. I would definitely recommend this condo, and would stay here again on a return visit. A+

If you are looking for a place to stay in Maui, look no further. From the moment we walked into the condo we felt like we were in our own home. The condo was beautifully furnished and had all of the amenities one would find in their own home. We stayed in the master bedroom and left the windows open. It was wonderful falling asleep and waking up to the waves hitting the shore. The spacious lanai was a great place to have a morning cup of coffee and in the evening watch those gorgeous sunsets. When we return to Maui we will definitely stay at this condo. I have been telling all of my friends what a great condo we stayed in and they all wanted the rental info. Dealing with the owner was great. She made the whole process very easy and was extremely helpful in her recommendations of restaurants and attractions.



May 2011
I just spent 2 weeks in the condo with my family and we had a wonderful time. When you can sit out on the deck and watch the world go by nothing is better. Walk down the nice sandy beach to the rocks and go swim with the turtles. Restaurants, grocery store and pub are all within walking distance so leave the car in the parking lot. The condo is clean and well furnished. I plan to go back again.

Our time in this 10th floor condo were the best days of our two week trip to Hawaii. It is absolutely wonderful and made us feel at home from the instant we walked through the door. Clean, quiet and well maintained with everything you need to enjoy your stay. The Royal Kahana resort is well staffed and equipped to make your time out of the condo just as enjoyable and your time in. We spent many hours on the lanai gazing across the channel toward Molokai and Lanai and the colors of the water were stunning, the breezes soft and gentle. Rainbows, gorgeous sunsets and gentle rains helped wash away the stress and worries of the 'outside' world. We can’t think of any other place that could be better. People who have seen pictures from there think we’ve done something to make the them better than reality but we tell them "no, reality looks better than the pictures." We're making plans on returning to Maui in the future and this absolutely will be our residence of choice.

Had the pleasure of staying at this wonderful condo back in November 2009. We have been coming to Maui since 2000 and by far this place is the best! Views are amazing! Place is clean and well taken care of. Very quiet and great location. Beach is just steps out your door. Pool is great too! Everything you need just bring your swim suit!

The condo is wonderful with spectacular views. The interior is very nicely appointed. There is indoor parking in the basement of the unit and near the elevators. The owners are a pleasure to deal with. Maui is great. Recommend snorkeling at Honolua Bay (about 10 minutes north). To get there you get a wonderful short walk thru a mini rainforest to boot! and eat at Roy's (around the corner) and Mama's Fish House (near Pa'ia). For a route less traveled, go north and around the northern tip of Maui back to Kahalui. Make sure you stop at Julia's banana bread stand. It is the best banana bread! Of course, the road to Hana is a must.
