Well I have to say you can't get closer to the beach or water unless you are sitting in it! This condo is in a great location. We were there during Christmas 2023 and the island was welcoming after the fires. It was good to feel we were supporting with our tourist $'s. The unit has a wonderful balcony (for about 4-5 people), nice large kitchen and comfortable LR. The master is on 2nd floor which is open balcony to LR, so not super private if you are on the phone (but you shouldn't be in HI!!). The other two BR's were perfect and it was very comfortable. I'd welcome going back in future and highly recommend the property.

We spent a beautiful 10 days in this wonderful unit. Most of us enjoyed listening to the sounds of the waves as we fell asleep. There is a nice little beach out front of the unit which is good for swimming and the pool is also nice. The location is great being close to Napili beach and Kanapali beach and restaurants. The manager was super easy to get a hold of and overall we really enjoyed our stay!! Hope to be back again soon:)

I have been using VRBO for many many years when I travel to Maui and have stayed in a lot of great condos. This one is the cream of the crop, by far. The condo is spacious, well kept, and well supplied. The views are out of this world! One thing I always look for is whether the host has supplied the kitchen with decent quality cookware and dishes and this one definitely does. I usually travel with my own chef's knife but this time I forgot... but it was fine because the knives in this kitchen were high quality and very sharp! This may sound like a silly detail, but when you travel, its the details that matter! Dara was a very gracious and responsive host and took great care of us during our stay. Will definitely re-book soon.

We stayed here with our kids and our friends and their kids. It was perfect. The swimming pool was a big hit, and there's a beach access very close. There's a good view of the ocean from the porch and we enjoyed sitting there watching whale spouts with our coffee in the morning. The house has beach towels, snorkels, beach chairs, skim boards and beach toys, which was awesome. We fit 4 adults and 5 kids very comfortably. The property manager was very helpful and responsive. We were very close to amazing beaches, shopping and snorkeling. Highly recommend this spot, we'd come here again in a heartbeat.

We had a wonderful stay at this property. Very quiet and spacious, with a short walk to the sand. My kids enjoyed swimming in the pool daily and it was an easy drive to the other parts of the island that we visited and did sightseeing. The best part was the sunset view each evening right from our balcony. Will be back!

This older 3 bedrooms and 2 bathroom apartment in a small complex was large enough for a comfortable stay for a family with two teens and an 11 year old. Management were very quick to fix issues when they arose. The kitchen is small but functional with good appliances and cookware. The laundry is in the 3rd bedroom and was well used. The outlook is beautiful and the sounds of the waves were lovely at night. It is 10 minutes from the action at Koonapali beach for restaurants and shopping. The local Miso Phat restaurant however had great quality sushi and was good value compared to other restaurants in the region. The beach out the front of the apartment isn’t good for snorkelling but we did see turtles and whales close to shore.

The condo was very clean and well taken care of. We had everything we needed for a day at the beach or an evening of cooking and spending time together. Safe and friendly place to stay. Would highly recommend.

This property was our favorite part of our Maui trip. It is steps away from the pool and beach, and allowed all of us to come and go from the sunshine as we pleased. Maui is definitely open and everyone in the community was so welcoming and friendly. They seemed to really appreciate our business. We booked excursions, ate at the local restaurants, and shopped for souvenirs just as we have in years past. The hosts were super responsive and helpful when our flights were unexpectedly changed. We’d love to come back and stay here again.

After planning for 2 years, I expected to find our dream vacation condo. Instead I found: Dirty floors and countertops Sheets and towels that smelled like mold, Some Pillows appeared to have mold, growing on them Basic items like TP in short supply, or there were none at all. We had to buy our own. The Wi-Fi didn’t work. The router finally quit altogether We bought a new router, but couldn't install it because the wiring is so out of date. We had to use our hotspots for 12 days. Some of us ran out of cell data. There is no cold water coming from one of the sink faucets in the master bathroom. This poses a burn risk. The hot and cold water supply lines in the sink in the twin room are plumbed backwards. Hot water comes out of the cold side and vice versa. This is another safety hazard The cover of the shower drain in the the third bathroom is not attached. My granddaughter picked it up and wanted to put her foot down the drain to explore. A SERIOUS hazard like a broken ankle. The DVD player was broken.. Bought a new DVD player. Did not leave it. Mold, growing on the refrigerator gaskets All the rugs, sofa, and throw pillows, look dirty and shabby. Need to be cleaned or better yet, replaced. Window AC units old, noisy and look moldy. Ceiling fans with broken pulls - the speed can't be changed. Burned ou light bulbs Condo has great potential, but is in serious need of maintenance. We received a partial refund, but still wish we’d had our dream condo

Property and condo are beautiful. We loved being on the beachfront and drinking coffee on the balcony. This was perfect for our family and we will definitely come back again.

Our stay was wonderful! I can’t say enough about the view from the Lanai. We came to Maui for our 50th year anniversary and to share it with our two adult children plus their family members. I wanted to relax and read but we kept busy going places and enjoying life on Maui. It was so nice to see the west side doing so well. Thank you for your hospitality. The Coleman Clan. The plus 1 was our grandson’s Girlfriend who is a sweetheart.

This trip symbolized a return to Maui in many ways for us, and hopefully symbolized the path to normalcy for its residents. We were welcomed everywhere we went across Maui with many thanks for returning to visit their cherished island. Even our host shared in this spirit by donating almost 1000 dollars of our visit to charity. Additionally, they let people stay there for over a month during the tragedy. For us this return also marked my mom’s 70th birthday, my return from 15 years ago to Maui on my honeymoon, and our kids first Hawaii adventure. On all counts this was our favorite place we ever stayed at Maui and a truly special trip. The place was great with very good air conditioning, comfy beds, and a very quiet and secluded space. Our kids got avocados from the tree outside that we ate and became a morning ritual hunting for them. We saw a whale from the balcony the last day and a turtle out in front. Our favorite snorkeling was airport beach just 10 minutes away. We ate pike bowls at miso phat only .2 of a mile away and had a whole Maui gold pineapple everyday (3 dollars at Costco). We cooked breakfast and lunch at the house and it was nicely equipped. Our host even let us check out at 7 pm on our last day for a small fee. Overall, 10/10 would definitely recommend and hope we can stay there again someday! Thank you so much for your hospitality!

So many good things to say about our experience on this trip! The unit itself is beautifully remodeled and the hosts have clearly put a lot of thought into the items they provide for their guests. Everything was very clean, comfortable, organized and Sherri was very responsive to any questions we had. We stayed for 8 nights and had no trouble finding activities (golf, zipline, snorkeling) and restaurants to keep us busy and well fed. We especially loved the beach at the property which was never over crowded and perfect for floating in the surf. We certainly missed Lahaina, but took the opportunity to explore more of the island than we might have otherwise and had a fantastic trip. Respect the privacy of the locals, tip generously and be a 'good' guest and you'll see that the hospitality you'd expect from Maui is stronger than ever.

We have stayed at the Outrigger many times in several different units over the years and always have had a great stay. Communication with the property manager on this unit was exceptional. I highly recommend this property if you like a smaller complex for your vacation. Very spacious and well equipped and the ocean front setting is hard to beat.

There’s nothing like waking up to the ocean right in front of you! Morning coffee, lots of lanai time just enjoying the ocean view and sunsets. We saw turtles one morning at the beach next door. Unit had everything we needed for pool and beach days. Our hearts hurt for Maui. ❤️ Beautiful people and culture.

The condo is in a beautiful location with a beach and pool. While older and not renovated, it vas very clean, comfortable, and had such an amazing view. The owner was very kind to work with us as our family got separated due to the fires. This is a gem of a place to stay.

This property was perfect for our family! The views were amazing! The home was clean and comfortable. The entire property was kept beautifully manicured and clean. The pool was beautiful- a great spot to sit and relax after a day of exploring. I can’t recommend this property more highly!

Miranda showed us the true meaning of the “aloha spirit” during our stay. We were on Maui during the very catastrophic and devastating wildfires. To make matters worse, we got separated from our 3 youngest children for two days while on the island. Miranda and her ohana became the only contact to our kids. She and her ohana went above and beyond to make sure our children were cared for, had everything they needed, were fed, and okay until we could be reunited. She got them to the shuttle where we were eventually reunited. While it was the single most terrifying event of my life, Miranda and her ohana were the only hope we had. I am more grateful for them than I have words to express. Thank you is insignificant, but will have to do.

Property manager was 5 stars. Unit was larger than expected. Vintage Hawaiian vibe. Location was nice. Quiet but also close to enough to the “main areas”. Enjoyed the pool, grilling out, and sunsets every night. Mahalo!

Outrigger Kahana is a beautiful complex. Fully equipped, clean, beautiful surroundings. Everything as advertised plus pleasant surprise with many condiments provided. Beach towels and toys were a big plus. Sunsets from balcony were gorgeous.

This property was perfect for our family of 6! It was comfortable and well equipped with everything you would need for the pool or beach. The best part is the view and proximity to a private beach and quick drive to Front Street where there are tons of shops and restaurants. The beach is stunning and is perfect for watching sunsets.

I was a bit nervous that the nearby beach would be awkward to get to, or just no good. But it's a perfectly nice beach. Not as great as some in West Maui, but the convenience of popping right over to it, and its uncrowdedness, makes it a great option. I also appreciated that the condo came stocked with sand toys, beach chairs, etc.

We visited Maui for my parents 50th Anniversary. The amenities, condo and location were everything we needed for a wonderful vacation with my whole family. We had 6 adults and 3 kids (9, 6, 2) and we had plenty of room in the condo. Our family especially loved all the extra special touches the owners placed on the condo. It was very well stocked with everything we needed to cook, bake, and relax at the beach. We highly recommended this property and hope to visit again one day.

We were so happy with our stay! It's always risky picking a place just from online reviews, but this one is a definite winner!. The property is beautifully maintained and the condo has been nicely updated. Best of all is the view from the lani and living room, stunning! When they say "ocean front" they mean it! The condo is very spacious. We had 9 adults and everyone had room. The bedrooms are spacious, as well as the kitchen and bathrooms. The lani has gorgeous views of the ocean, where I sat every morning with my coffee...perfect! I feel very lucky to have found such a perfect place large enough to comfortably accomodate my large group. The air conditioners in each room are wonderful and there are plenty of towels. Check in was easy and the property manager was readily available. Everyone in our group loved the condo and I consider myself very lucky to have found this property and hope to stay again!!

We loved our stay at the condo in Kahana! This was our third time on the island, but our first time staying on the west side. It was a great location and easy to get everywhere. We also loved all the restaurants and shopping close by. The condo was nicely updated and a beautiful location near a private beach. We will definitely be back!

This property exceeded our expectations! The location is perfect and the view of the ocean was spectacular. Watching the beautiful sunsets from the lanai was one of our favorite things to do. We had 5 adults staying in the condo and we had plenty of room. Kitchen was well stocked, but there is an ant issue that needs to be addressed. Other than that we enjoyed our week stay!

The condo was perfect in every way. Location right on the beach, amenities, and furnishings were all top of the line. Immaculate rooms, comfortable beds and enough room for the 7 of us to spread out as we spent a week together. The property manager was always accessible and quick to respond to any questions we had. Wonderful Maui vacation for my husband and myself, our son, daughter in law, daughter, and two teenage grandaughters. Perfect location for a perfect vacation.
