The Vitamin Sea condo at The Kahana Reef was the perfect place to stay! Clean, great accommodations, perfect location. We will be staying here again!

This was a great place for a couple! Very comfortable bed, nicely appointed and furnished, and the lanai was an awesome place to lounge, eat meals, and watch whales, turtles and windsurfers. We loved our stay! My only criticism would be low water pressure in the shower.

January 2024

The view was beautiful. The condo was very nicely finished and very clean. Beach right next door.

January 2024

The location was absolutely amazing! We had breakfast on the lanai while watching for whales, spent hours playing at the beach just steps from the property and watched the sunset from the seawall. The condo was fully equipped with everything we needed, including beach chairs and boogie boards. The kitchen had many extras as well like a blender, waffle maker and French press. The view from the lanai can’t be beat!

Let me begin by saying Jill was great with prompt responses and quick action/communication. This rental is dreamy. Located near other resorts and rental properties, this place is very well decorated and many amenities including binoculars, usb charger, tons of plug outlets for devices. The binoculars are for watching the whales from the Lanai. The lanai is spectacular and so is the day bed. I found myself sleeping there listening to waves crash against the seawall right in front of it. I caught some little turtles floating near the waves/water closest to the shore. It was such a nice and intimate place, we didn’t want to leave. Some stores, bars, gas station within walking distance. The beaches are a short drive from here as you don’t really have any beach area behind the property to hang out on. There is a picnic table, grill and a couple recliner lawn chairs in the back by the seawall. There is also a good sized pool across the street behind the main building. I highly recommend for any one single or with a partner to try this gem of a place in Kahana very close to Lahaina.

We had a wonderful week long stay. It is the perfect size for a couple. Everything we needed in one place. Especially the breathtaking sunset views. We also really enjoyed watching the kite surfers from the deck. Very quiet area and nice to have restaurants within walking distance. I can't wait to go back. Mahalo!

No need for luxury accommodations like the Grand Wailea. THIS gem had it all and MORE. As a Maui local and now a visitor, this space is charming and radiant as it is on the water like few hotels can provide. The vibe and decor is uplifting. Also, so close - walking distance - to coffee, shops, beaches, etc.

This place was very well maintained and beautifully decorated. The view from the balcony/porch was stunning! There were beach towels and chairs available at the rental. A parking pass allowed parking right next to the building. This is a 4th floor suite that is right next to the elevator for very easy access. We would stay here again!

This place is in a great location, nicely updated, and plenty comfortable and spacious for two people. Grocery store and restaurants are close by. The view is gorgeous, just as pictured, and the complex is quiet. No AC, which concerned me at first, but we didn't need it at all. The beach at the complex is a little rocky, but is fine in calm waters. Not at all a problem with this unit, but just something to be aware of. Thanks for a great stay!

Enjoyed our stay in condo. Very clean with tropical decor. Great place to sit on lanai and gaze at ocean. The view is awesome. Except for sounds of ocean is quiet and away from crowds of Kanapaali. Kitchen Well stocked. Have portable AC in living area but never needed it. Nice ocean breeze with doors open and ceiling fans.

this was not our first stay here we love it here and will be returning. We love Maui and this place makes it even more enjoyable with its spectacular views and the sound of the waves. The sunsets are so beautiful if you come during whale season you will get tired of shouting Whale lol I hope you all enjoy it as much as us and the owners are very nice and accommodating people you won’t be dissappointed. Mahalo for sharing your paradise with us ❤️

Absolutely beautiful! This condo was so clean and beautifully decorated. It was well stocked with everything you could need. Beautiful ocean views, and the day bed on the lanai was such a wonderful spot to hang out. Bed is very comfortable. Lots of local shops and food. Property manager is incredibly responsive and helpful. There is no beach access on the property, and is about a 5 minute walk, with much of it without side walks. It certainly is not a deal breaker, but if mobility or bathroom access is an issue, it might be something to consider. We would definitely return!

December 2023

Everything about our stay here was amazing. From the decor to the spaciousness to that view! The day bed on the lanai was so perfect and now I need an outdoor bed back home. It was perfect to go the beach right next door - we snorkeled and saw massive sea turtles. They were amazing to watch. The location is also perfect. We contemplated staying in Paia but so glad we stayed in west Maui. It was a little tough but we did Road to Hana one day and the next day, the sunrise at Haleakala so definitely doable! Just gotta go to sleep early. We will absolutely stay here again. Mahalo for an amazing start to our honeymoon!!

Everything was amazing. The condo was so clean and they provided us with many towels, beach chairs, snorkeling gear and a ice cooler to use while at the beach. They also had a vacuum and broom so you could clean up daily. They even provided a bottle of wine and snacks for our stay. All around great place to stay and we can't wait to come back in the future.

You never know when you book something online from the pictures, but the place exceeded the pictures and the location was perfect. Fourth floor looking right down on the water. Every day we saw the sea turtles. The waves lapping at the shore right in front of us , sandy beach right there , we enjoyed it very much. Would love to go back.

We were there during the fires but still had six beautiful days before. The fires opened our eyes to the love and friendship of the community and the owner of the condo. We were treated like family and the owner did everything in her power to make us safe and comfortable. We have since become like family

Wonderful experience here with our stay. Priced appropriately, given size, ammenities, and location. Patio off the living room, with views of ocean, islands and water front were amazing and where my wife and I spent most of our time when home. Bed was comfortable, place was clean, and provided a great home base during our visit to Maui. Highly recommend this place to anyone!

November 2023

We had a wonderful time in Maui. However we were unable to get any sleep because of a light that shines right through the blinds all night long. It seems like a bunch of the other rentals in the same complex put up blackout curtains ($100 max) for there guests but this management company suggested “turning the round plastic handle to close the blinds”. Talking to me as if I didn’t know how to close the blinds and acting as if this has never happened before. I was completely shocked at there response. I was then told they would call the manager on property and see what they could do but I never heard back about a resolution so that we could sleep in the bedroom. We ended up having to use the pull out bed in the living room, where it was darker than the bedroom. Also, the cleaners totally omitted cleaning the fan in the bathroom as there is dust and dirt filled at least a 1/3 inch thick.

The condo is lovely.... In a great place on the ocean looking across to Molokai. We loved sitting on the lanai each every enjoying the sunsets and twilight. The condo is well equipped and clean. Quite cozy and just right for a couple. For more than two adults, it might be a squeeze. We will certainly consider coming back to this home when we next travel to Maui...

This was one of those [laces where you walk in and pinch yourself. The view does not get any better for a sunset on the lanai. So many turtles to watch eat off the reef, and a great spot to enter the water for spear fishing.

We chose this place(Hulahideaway)to relax for the final 4 days of our holiday after being based on the North shore and exploring Maui for 9 days. We were so happy when we opened the door and were captivated by the view as we entered the apartment. The decor was beautiful and you feel you are right on top of the ocean when lying on the bed it is as if you are on a boat. Great beaches only a short walk away and shops nearby. We just loved relaxing on the Lanai watching the stunning sunsets and cute turtles. The apartment also had everything we needed for enjoying cooking our own meals. We hope to return to Maui in the future and would definitely check availability of this place as it is an absolute gem. Thanks for a great stay to end the perfect holiday.

we were offered this property after the fires at Lahaina made our West Maui vacation unavailable. I'm grateful for the substitution. The property was older and in a more urban environment that we would have preferred but once we were in the condo, the beautiful view, pristine pool area, and soft sandy beach to walk on more than made up for it! We were conveniently located to restaurants, shopping at Wailea, trips to Kula and Paia.

We thought the property was awesome. The sunset views were amazing and the glimpses of the sunrise in the morning were perfect with coffee. Rainbows happening all morning capped it off. The ease of getting to the property and also to everything else Maui had to offer were awesome. We appreciated the beach chairs and cooler that were provided.

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Was a great place for a couple. The view was gorgeous since you are near the water. Watched a sunset every night from the lanai. Loved that it had AC. You don't need to leave the AC on long because it will cool down this studio unit fast. The only thing I wish it had was a a full length mirror. That way we could see ourselves and our outfits before heading out. A mirror in the living room space would be extra helpful so one person can get ready in the bathroom and the other in the main room. This studio was stocked with everything including a full function kitchen and super super clean!! The lanai is spacious and comfortable. Oh the bed here was super comfy too. You have a parking space right next to your unit and super easy parking!! It was nice to have access to a laundry room across the street so we could pack lightly coming to Maui. We stayed here after the terrible fire in Lahaina August 2023. All of the locals and businesses greeted us and thanked us a million times for coming. You will feel welcomed so please come and spend time in Maui. They need the tourism. I give this studio a 5 star review and would stay here again. It is romantic, quiet and relaxing.

Located right on the water near beaches and local shops. LaHaina was off limits due to the terrible fire in August. There is a lot to see and do,renting a car is a must from the airport. There is no A/C in the unit,but the prevailing winds kept us comfortable. The tourism time is about to start,businesses are just getting opened back up after not having power and drinkable water in some areas. We were all supplied with all the utilities. Had a great week of relaxing,entertained by the sea turtles, dolphins, dugout canoes and surfers. Be sure to visit Slaughterhouse beach, great swimming,snorkeling,and watching sea life.

My husband and our 2 sons stayed here for an end of summer boys trip and they loved it! The view from the lanai, and walking out to see the ocean and sea turtles just steps away was perfect!

The apartment is average with all your basic needs. It's not fancy. But, you won't care! It has everything you need and thoughtful items like beach chairs and extra pillows. It's all about the VIEW. The pictures do this view no justice. From your balcony, there is nothing but ocean in front of you far as you can see. You have to make an effort to see the other properties around you. The only thing blocking a tiny part of your view is a beautiful palm tree blowing in the breeze. You can't be mad at that. Walk down the stairs and the water is at your feet. There are a few other visitors hanging out, some cooking, some at the pool. But, there aren't many people because the property is private. This was a good value for the money and a great stay for a couple. I'm so happy we were here. We left Maui the day before the fires started. So, hopefully, everything here is still beautiful.

This place is one of a kind. Very beautiful view even though we stayed on the ground floor. We were right by the bbq, and the pool. The sea wall had turtles every single day feeding off of it. We also saw other ocean life right off of the property. Our kids are 4 & 6 and they loved the pool. However the rules of the pool made it a bit challenging to have fun, but many guests and residents were happy to let my kids just play and be kids. Some still wanted silence, which we respected and went to the beach. Check in was super easy and the unit was fairly clean. There was one hick up with bedding not being clean, however I only mention it to say that the owner and staff rectified it that day and were very happy to assist us with any other cleaning issues. We would not hesitate to stay here again and we have stayed on the south side of the island as well. This would be a great place to host a family vacation, couples retreat or even a solo trip. Great condo!

The location was great and the view amazing. The rental is a little run down. Pictures on line sell it. Cockroaches are a thing. But the worst part was a day and a half of construction starting at 8am two mornings on the condo next door with adjoining wall. We will not rent here again.

August 2023

Was entirely satisfied with our stay here! Located north of Lahaina, out of the business of town, easy beach access, and quiet and peaceful here. The lack of AC was no problem, with the bedroom windows open there is a constant breeze that cools the condo. Easy check in/check out and easy communication with the owner! Would come here again!

Good location, lovely views. Problems with unit and with communications with owner. No local manager to help. Microwave inoperable with sign on it saying broken when we arrived. Property listed as having microwave.lock on slider to firmly close it also broken, despite owner telling us to use it to help with allowing breezes in without noise of door shaking. Inability to connect with owner who said Vrbo system not working. Liked being on Maui despite all these issues, but would not stay in this unit again.

August 2023

This is a perfect 1 bedroom apartment with an amazing view and so close to the water. When you're sitting at the lanai you feel that you're at the water. Turtles came to the seawall every evening. You're minutes away from Napili, Lahaina and all the great beaches in the area. Highly recommend it. We will be back.

We stayed in Lorrie’s condo August 3-9; it is a beautiful home, clean and well situated with beautiful views and comfortable furnishings. There are updates that aren’t pictured in the photos such as more clothing storage, tons of beach-going essentials, a larger flatscreen TV, etc. We evacuated before the end of our planned time there due to the devastating fires in Lahaina. Fortunately Lorrie had the condo stocked with some emergency supplies that were a great deal of help to us, and she checked in with us to make sure we were safe. She is a gracious and lovely host who showed great care for us, even going so far as to refund the missed portion of our trip. When Maui is ready to receive guests again we hope to return here. Thank you Lorrie for being so wonderful.

This home is in a great location with wonderful ocean views from the lanai. The kitchen is fully furnished with coffee, spices, dishes, pots and pans. Beach chairs and umbrellas are included. I enjoyed a very relaxing vacation in this beautiful home. Mahalo for sharing it with me. I will recommend to friends and definitely return on my next trip.

This condo is exactly as pictured, probably better. It is RIGHT on the ocean and the view from the balcony is amazing. There is not a beach in from of it (just a beach wall) so driving to a beach is necessary. A car is needed at this condo as it is not really walking distance to anything but it is a short drive from everything you would want to see and do near kaanapali beach. Wonderful stay thank you!

The place has an AMAZING view. We enjoyed sunsets on the patio several days. A few minor issues: The main issue was there is no AC and it gets hot. The other main issues was the checkout process which was too involved for a large cleaning fee, including taking out the trash to the dumpsters. There were also a lot of small ants present. Lastly, only 2 bath + 2 beach towels were provided and there is no onsite laundry machines. I'd recommend providing more towels, stocking up the pantry with more species, and having more beach equipment like snorkels and fins for guests to use.

The views from the condo are exactly what we hoped for. We enjoyed eating our meals on the lanai which overlooked the ocean. Beautiful sunsets from this spot. We loved being steps away from seeing turtles swimming. Turtle watching was definitely a highlight for our kids! They also enjoyed having the pool to use at the end of the day. The condo was very clean and had everything we needed. The 2 beach chairs and boogie boards were perfect for our family. Also nice to not have had to pack beach towels. The ability to do laundry at the complex was nice, but make sure you have quarters on hand as there is no where to get change there. The only potential cons that people may encounter were that the shower didn’t really get hot - the highest temp was generally lukewarm. Probably an issue with the condo complex itself as opposed to that specific unit. With the Maui heat, it wasn’t really a problem for us to not have the water temp we were used to. Also, the sliding door to the lanai was not tracking properly, but the owner has since been notified so hopefully that will be fixed before their next guests. Overall, we enjoyed our stay here and would definitely consider booking here again.

The condo is near several good beaches, has a great view, and is comfortable. The patio door needs to be serviced and I wouldn't recommend the unit to anyone that has difficult lifting/pushing/pulling 40lbs until it is.

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: My sweetheart & I had a tremendously wonderful time celebrating our anniversary in this lovely rental! It was in a great location, with clean accommodations and a jaw dropping view. The vacation rental management staff were excellent communicators, and in contact during our stay to answer any questions. A+ for being awesome and helpful. What impressed us the most was the well stocked rental with all the thoughtful amenities needed to make ourselves at home, and what a home it was! We enjoyed breakfast and coffee with a view every morning. We snorkeled often and found the cooler and beach towels very useful. Our foodie journeys found great eateries and bringing home left overs was a cinch to thanks to the clean full size fridge.The care and love was felt every turn from the owners, managers and cleaning staff. We will be back to celebrate future anniversaries.

Incredible place on ground level, right by the water. We could wake up, walk to get coffee, and then walk right into the water and swim with sea turtles. We had a fantastic stay, and would absolutely come again.

The condo was very clean and has everything you need for your stay, umbrella, chairs towels, ice chest bags. Snorkeling is great out from and there are lots of turtles! The property says it’s in Lahaina, but it’s about 10-15 minutes from downtown Lahaina with all the cute shops! Over all our experience was great! Denise was a great communicator and responds quickly!

We (my husband, little 1-year-old son and I) stayed at the Surfshack for 3 nights in June 2023 and felt very comfortable. The apartment is very lovingly and individually furnished. We also loved the details like the binoculars and beach items. Mark always had an open ear for questions and answered very quickly and in detail. The view is fantastic and the temperature in the apartment is very comfortable even without air conditioning.

Kahana Reef was the perfect location for us and it had everything we wanted for a wonderful Maui vacation. Absolutely as described- very clean and completely comfortable. We would definitely stay here again!

We had the best time and felt very pampered at Annie’s Surf Shack!! They first made it very easy to book and then get to the condo. Lots of great suggestions for getting food etc to just get to the fun times! The condo is on the 4th floor and has an elevator. The view from the Lanai were fabulous- we whale watched while eating breakfast. We also watched the sunset on one night from the lanai. They had everything you could want! The kitchen was super- even a blender- and we made fun rum smoothies! We will be back!!!

Annie's Surf Shack surpassed our expectations for a wonderful home to stay in for our anniversary trip! Not only was it a well supplied kitchen, but the ambiance was pure aloha. We would sit on that Lanai and watch Turtles, dolphins, and birds. They even had great quality binoculars to use! The decor was so beautiful, I loved the furniture, lamps, pictures, etc! We will definitely want to stay at Annie's again! Thank you to Mark and Annette!

Due to the excellent communication from Mark prior to our trip, we expected Annie’s to be nice. But we didn’t anticipate just how much our choice to stay here would enhance our vacation. Being a beachfront condo, we were able to drink our early morning coffee on the lanai enjoying the waves and being treated to an occasional whale breaching (our stay was late Feb & early Mar). There were binoculars there to allow a closeup view. We ate most breakfasts there just taking in the amazing scenery. And the sunsets were spectacular!! The amenities were too numerous to mention…. Including every pot/pan/utensil/plate/glass you’d need. The mattress was very comfy and everything in the condo was immaculate. They had nice snorkeling equipment, body boards, coolers, etc… for use by guests. Very quiet neighborhood with ample free parking. Very close to most everything we did. Can’t think of a single thing I’d change (and I’m pretty picky). It helps that the owners use the condo when they’re in Maui.

The unit itself was very clean and the area it's located in was, too. It had a lovely view of the ocean and we saw whales few times daily. The bed in the bedroom and the pull out sofa bed were both very comfortable as well. In addition, there was an elevator which made it very easy to move our luggage. The pool was nice. There were couple grills which we did not use during our stay, but they seemed to be in great condition and we saw other people using them. There was a staircase from the hotel area down to the beach and another one down to the reef for snorkeling, you can also see turtles from there. We also used the laundry room which was very convenient and we could pay using our mobile phones. Overall, it was a great experience and I definitely recommend it.

We enjoyed a two week stay at Annie's Surf Shack. We absolutely loved sitting on the lanai and watching the sunsets and the whales. The condo is in a perfect location: close to snorkeling beaches and grocery stores. The condo has a well equipped kitchen; all of the items you would need for the beach (including snorkeling equipment); and a very comfortable bed. We especially appreciated the excellent communication with Mark, the owner. Quick response to any questions. We have no hesitations to planning a return visit!

We had great time staying here. The condo was clean, the location was great, and the owner Mark was very responsive. We had a few questions during the staying, and he responded very fast,, which makes our stay much easier.. We saw whales from the balcony, and listened to the sound of ocean when we went to bed. You can go to all the best beaches between 5 to 15min by car. I highly recommend staying here if you visit the west side of Maui.

Annie’s surf shack has everything you need in a stay in Hawaii. The views from the balcony allow you to relax and enjoy the sunsets, as well as have a morning cup of coffee while spotting sea turtles and whales. Would give a 10/10 review.

No AC. The owner of the apartments stuff was just barely tucked away with signs saying “this is the owners stuff don't touch”. Just seems like it is just a quick cash grab kinda place.

We Love our little piece of Paradise, We found KR 208 to be very clean upon arrival and user friendly with all of the Kitchen necessities for coffee and breakfast on the lanai every morning. Fresh paint thru out, and the Art work in the unit gives it a real island feeling.
