What a great condo!! This was a comfortable, well stocked unit and has great beds! We very much enjoyed this space! Good views and great location! I would definitely stay here again. There is no downstairs bath but a large kitchen and living room area, Beautiful unit!

Awsome location, enjoyed ocean view and sunset. Everything’s clean but some brownish power kept falling from somewhere in the kitchen cabinet to cooktop.

This is a great unit in the Kahana Sunset complex and has incredible views of the ocean and island of Molokai. Unit was clean and well stocked. Beds were comfy and having individual A/C units in each room was a great bonus! The complex was very family friendly and the grilling area/pool were very nice. Ending each day sitting out by the rock wall watching the sunset was a memory our family will never forget! WiFi and TVs worked great and so did all the appliances. Will definitely stay here again when visiting Maui.

We enjoyed our time in the condo. Jenn was very responsive to questions and issues when they arose. It was well furnished and had lots of little extras that were a nice surprise. The Napili Market was walking distance and the Times Supermarket about a 10 minute drive. I would recommend them over Target for essentials that you might need. We could only use the beach once as there were high surf advisories and wind advisories a good portion of the time we were there. There were plenty of chaises to use at the complex and the bbq worked well. The pool wasn't busy. My only complaint is there is quite a bit of noise from the parking lot and some of the neighbors at the time. You could only hear them from the downstairs.

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was somewhat dirty. I was very happy with the location. I was somewhat dissatisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We have stayed iin several of the Kanaha sunset condos. This one was unfortunately the worst of them. There was a dead cockroach, food from prior renters, very poor internet, lack of good cooking utinsils, doors and cabinets that needed adjusting, and an overall lack of cleanliness. In addition this was the most outdated condo we have stayed in.

Quarters clean and comfortable. Deck was at a perfect angle to see pool and ocean comfortably while enjoying meals outside on the table. Grounds immaculate. Staff cleaned grills daily and kept all flowers, trees, grass and pool in top notch shape. So glad we stayed here!! Mahalo!! p.s. whales were jumping, and we could see sea turtles close up from the public deck.

The unit was very clean and great views out to the sea. saw whales daily and kids swam with the resident turtles. Also close to the Napili market where we walked to for groceries and daily coffees. Will return again cheers

We had a lovely stay at Robbie’s place. It has all the amenities to make it a perfect rental, but is tastefully decorated without any clutter. Comfortable seating, comfortable bed, huge TV, nice mini-split AC. Kahana Sunset has a great pool and beach and nice large viewing area to watch the ocean - whales, turtles etc. We’d stay here every year if we could afford the trip.

We loved our stay! Turtles came right up on the beach. It was very relaxing. Property was very clean and as described. The beach gear was a nice touch. The beach is a little rough for swimming or snorkeling, but gorgeous for watching the sunset. We would go back.

We really enjoyed our stay at this property. The condo was exactly as advertised. The grounds were beautiful and well kept and the pool was great. Property was quiet which is what we were looking for. The only small disappointment was the onsite beach which was unusable during half our visit due to the large waves that eliminated the beach. This wasn’t a big deal because there were many other amazing beaches within 5-10 minutes from the property. We would definitely stay here again!

Close to Kapalua where we were volunteering in the Sentry. Been coming to Kahana Sunset for 50 years, sad that they are losing the beach, but condos are still great and never dissapoint.

This was a surprise visit to Maui for my kids and my husband who had never been to Hawaii before. We left very early Christmas morning and I forgot to check if we could check in early since we had arrived so early and were extremely tired. I sent Carmen a message and she got us in early which was a gift. I realize that can be am inconvenience and sometimes not possible for hosts to do so thanks Carmen. We were so happily surprised when we arrived. The condo was very nice and perfect for what we needed. Our boys were elated that the pool was out front. They spent a good deal of time there. It was never too busy or loud. We used the BBQ’s a few times and brought our food to the deck by the waves. In the morning we watched turtles swimming in the waves and even watched whales in the distance. It was pretty magical. The pull out bed was perfect for my 15 year old and 7 year old. Our bed was very comfortable. The kitchen was well-stocked and we cooked there every day. We also had access to some beach chairs, boogie boards and umbrella. I can’t say enough about this place. We very much enjoyed our stay!!

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: I was happy with the property, but disappointed in the condo. There was no oven which we somehow missed in the original listing. I would not of booked it, the beds were very worn and the mattresses were very lumpy and uncomfortable. The carpeting needs to be replaced along with the drapes. Overall the upstairs bedrooms need updating and a refresh. The pillows were also in bad shape. For the cost we spent I was disappointed in that.

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: I'll start with the rental management team. They were excellent and very communicative. I would absolutely use them again in the future.We have stayed at 4 condos in KS. This condo was by far the most well appointed condo of the group. Clean and literally had everything needed for a great stay! Plenty of chairs, coolers, and beach stuff in the storage room.The building is C-3. We've been in E and A buildings as well. They all have their plus and minuses. Parking very convenient and close.Property has always been well maintained and its a great low key spot for a couple or families. Pool and access to the ocean, grounds very lush and green with lawn chairs. Lots of BBQs, I've never run into a lineup. Only quirk is they auto close the gas to them after dark (I think around 9), so dont come back late from the beach and think you will get to cook some food on the grill. Pool also closes fairly early.Winter months swells are substantial. This bay has suffered tremendous erosion over the years that have impacted the homes as well as building F at KS. Of the 14 days there, we probably had 3 maybe 4 with clear and calm enough water for snorkling in the bay. When its available, its absolutely amazing! Just be prepared to hop in the car if you are looking for a beach day and waves with less energy than what can pund this little complex in the winter.Our stays in West Maui are in the double digits over the years, its our vacation speed. Laid back, not as touristy, and amazing places to visit just minutes away. Location close to many beach options or a quick stop at the market square for food,coffee, groceries.The devastating fire's impact is indescribable on the great people of Maui.We chose to show local support by spending money into their economy, tip well, and volunteering.Post FEMA government housing plans have taken too long and there is pressure on rental owners.Mayor has even threatened moratorium.Some may judge you for being there.Recover

We selected this location to be close to the Plantation Course for the PGA event in January. This made it easy to commute to volunteer for the duration of the event and have access to a pool and beach for the rest of the family. There was walkable access to a shopping center with some good restaurants and local market. Will definitely consider staying again.

To be honest, my visit to Kahana Sunset far exceeded my expectations. The unit was great for me and a business associate. The service from Sullivan Properties, as well as their follow up has been fantastic. I had no idea there were so few beaches on that side of the island, so having our own private beach to swim, snorkle and just hang was awesome!

This property was perfect for our family of 5 (3 teens). We loved the quiet location with easy access to the pool, beaches, a great view, etc…Communication with our host was easy and efficient. Lots of storage, towels, etc… Would be nice to have some basic supplies like cling wrap and foil, salt, sugar, etc…included (some spices and coffee filters were left). Thanks for a great time…we hope to be back some day!!

My first impression was how clean this unit was. Onsite and nearby amenities are great. Not your typical big name resort with onsite restaurants and activities. Definitely more low-key and relaxing.

We very much enjoyed our stay at this condo during the week of Christmas 2023. The property is just as advertised in the listing. The unit is thoughtfully stocked with everything you will need and many other extras. Location is nice - quiet area, less than a mile from Napili beach and shopping and restaurants at Napili plaza. Kaanapali beach and Whaler’s village are an easy 15 minute drive away. You will enjoy your stay in this unit.

This condo is perfectly located for access to many nearby beaches. There is a nearby market area that has a few smaller restaurants, and a Safeway just a few minutes down the road. The condo is right on the water in a smaller neighborhood. This was nice because the area was quiet and felt a little more secluded than a hotel ever feels. The beach is just a short walk from the unit and has a small sand area that kids can play. During our time there the waves were coming up onto most of the beach, but our kids loved playing right in the edge of the water. Many sandy beaches are very close if you prefer extra space to play. Parking is right in front of the unit, and you can see the ocean from the top patio area attached to the Master Bedroom. The pool is perfect for smaller children as it has a "baby" swim area that is not deep and is separate from the larger portion of the pool. The unit had everything we needed for cooking meals, included a coffee maker, bottle opener, bowls with lids for storing leftovers, etc. It is equipped with small shampoos, conditioner, lotion, soaps and dishwasher pods. The property management company was also very easy to communicate with and provided us with all of the information we needed prior to our arrival. It was a very simple check in/check out process. The Gazebo and Tiki Bar restaurants are just around the corner. Both have good food, although you should go early to the Gazebo if you hope to avoid a long wait. We had a wonderful time!

Our family of four (two children aged 9 and 12) stayed comfortably over the past week and had the best time. Location is fantastic in relation to everything on west/north Maui but away from the crowds. The facilities (pool/lawn/grills/etc) were clean, very well maintained and entertaining for all. The condo was comfortable and well equipped— especially for us since we do almost all of our own cooking (with local market finds) any time we are on the island. We are already plotting a return. Nothing could have been better.

We had an absolute blast on our trip to Maui. Condo was perfect for our family of five. My wife and I and 3 boys ages 14,18 and 21. Had amazing views of the ocean right from our balconies. They also had beach stuff you could use. 3 chairs, 2 boogie boards and a cooler. Used them everyday!

Loved our stay at D11! The condo and property were perfect for our family. The beds slept well, it was easy to cook in the well outfitted kitchen. There was a good selection of books to enjoy (and more updated tvs than the pictures show!) Kids loved the pool and beach/ocean even tho the waves were pretty strong during our stay. Saw a couple turtles also. The property was absolutely beautiful and was so relaxing. Overall our stay exceeded our expectations and we hope to come back again!

I absolutely recommend that place. A5 was not the same ,the kitchen is old and stock sadly, the pits and pan's are old and not usable, Handel's faling of ,no proper lits old used and dirty amenities. The place needs work,A/C is noisy ,screen door falling out of frame. And the list goes on. If taken plenty of pics and videos as prove. I complained to Sullivan and they refunded 1 day of stay. I payed over $13.000 for 9 nights for the 2 apartments $6500 each ,bud the different between the apartments are day and night. I would book A4 again In A heartbeat but not A5
