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: We stayed with our 2 children and brought my mom as well. The view can’t be beat. And the pool next to the ocean was a new level of fun for our kids! We had daily visits from turtles and one that stayed for a few days. It was an excellent stay!

This condo is on the corner so there's even more view. It's right on the water and we slept great, listening to the ocean. The views of the whales (during the winter) kept us entertained for hours.

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Had an awesome week here, everything was as advertised or better. Unit had everything we ever needed including beach chairs, cooler, and boogie boards. Can’t get any closer to the water or better views I don’t think. Watched whales all the time out front and turtles coming up to the beach in front. Pool was great to cool off after hot days at the beach. Location provided walkable options for eating as well. Some folks commented that they were worried about no AC, but it really wasn’t an issue with the breeze and fans... ocean waves crashing most of the time. Check in and out was a breeze and I would stay here for sure when we return to Maui. Also 3 other families in our group stayed in other nohonani units and felt the same.

What a great stay. The unit just feet from the ocean with a small beach next door. We will be back next year!!

The view is amazing. the second floor bedrooms get very warm and with no air conditioning would be too hot in the summer but was fine for the spring. Unfortunately there was construction going on Monday thru Friday starting at 8:30 am. It made staying in the condo unbearable during the day. This should have been revealed before putting down a deposit. Again, loved the view!

The sound of the waves gave us the best night sleep. Can't wait till we can come back again.

We were grateful for all the communication and support on our stay. The construction going on will provide wonderful visual improvements in the future. The unit is well appointed with everything you need. Our fan died so they provided a new one. Our vacuum battery wouldn't hold charge so they provided us a replacement. They gals I spoke to were polite and courteous. They resolutions were prompt and confirmed. We would work with this company again.

Not a whole lot other to say than both of these condos were incredible. There were two families in our group and we split up between the two but frequented the 3BD condo more as it had the space but both were incredible. The views are unmatched from these penthouses. The private beach was perfect, the pool great. All in all I would highly recommend to anyone staying in Maui. This is the place to stay!

There was building construction next door that had been ongoing for a while. Our manager was able to move us to a quieter unit. It was second floor with a nicer view. Maranda was very helpful. Both units were clean and well appointed.

Loved the location and the unit, but felt we should have been informed of the serious construction upfront, either prior to booking or directly in the body of the confirmation email. Including it through a secondary link seemed deceitful and the construction was a safety hazard, especially with a two year old.
Jessica B.
February 2024

Each weekday morning at 9:00 am the construction crew arrived. Throughout the remainder of the day until 5:00 pm we were unable to be in our condo due to drilling concrete and hammering often with workers on a scissor lift right in front of our balcony. Loved our condo and love Nohonani so it was a disappointment to have gone and have had no prior notification of the construction.

Our accommodations were fantastic! There was plenty of room for the 4 of us, it was very comfortable, clean and well stocked with everything we could have possibly needed. The view was amazing and we watched the whales and turtles from our lanai every day. We had the tv break on us one night and the manager came the next day and replaced it. Awesome service!! The only downfall is the street noise from the front bedroom at night when you’re trying to sleep with the window open. Other than that, I highly recommend it and will definitely stay again.

We had a great time in the condo! Spectacular ocean view, we enjoyed the sunrise and sunset each day, full double rainbow over Molokaui one day, and spotted multiple turtles and whales swimming by. The unit had everything we needed, dishes, glassware, pots and pans. Comfortable beds and sleeping on sound of the waves was amazing. Very close to the famous beaches at Kaanapali and Kapalua. We'll be back some day.

The property is amazing. We saw tons of turtles and whales from the lanai. It’s close to one of the best snorkeling beaches that we found. The unit has everything you need. BBQ’s downstairs that are very clean. Pool is deep in one end and kid friendly in the other. No beach access which really didn’t bother us. I highly recommend this place. Royal Kahana. 1010

We really enjoyed our stay. We loved the location and the property was nice and clean. The only issue was that the patio doors (living room and bedroom) were not able to be locked. We tried numerous times to secure the door but you could force them open with moderate pressure. The area felt really safe and secure but always a concern that the patio couldnt be locked properly.

The condo looks the same as the pictures and was clean. Location could not be beat! You can step from the condo to the pool or the ocean. We loved falling asleep to the sounds of the ocean. There is no AC, so it got a bit hot on some days, but the condo had lots of fans. Really appreciated the beach chairs, beach towels, and cooler. Lots to do within walking distance. Try the food trucks!

My family rented this condo for 8 days. It was in a perfect location with the beach right outside so we could snorkel every morning. We were also able to have breakfast outside every morning and see the whales. The condo was clean and had extra towels, beach toys, chairs and more. The condo was in a great location close to grocery stores, restaurants and a food truck park. We used the washer and dryer in the unit and it worked great. We would love to stay here again! You cannot go wrong with this condo.

This condo has a stunning view of the ocean! The sound of the ocean from the room was so peaceful although could get a little loud at night but was still well worth the view. The property and room were clean and very well kept. Having a washing machine to keep up on laundry was a great bonus and helped up pack lighter for the trip. My kids loved the place and we would happily come back again.

We spent a week here during the first week in November. The location was great. Beautiful views!! The 4th floor condo was spacious with 2 bedrooms, 1.5 baths, washer/dryer, kitchen (well stocked with dishes, pots/pans, etc), comfortable living space and lanai overlooking the water, pool and beach. The parking lot was small but never had an issue finding a spot. The only downfall is there is no air conditioning. For the most part, it wasn’t an issue but had a few shorts periods where it was pretty warm in the condo. We made it a point to get out and explore in the afternoon hours. Definitely would recommend this place.

This place is incredible. Right on top of the water, and has a bedroom, bathroom and pull out couch on each level. Perfect for traveling with a large group. Me and my husband brought our 4 teen daughters and let them use the upstairs level. Another thing I love about this is the view from the loft at night. Full sky view! Highly recommend.

This condo is by far my new favorite place to stay in Maui! Everything about it was perfect. No need for AC here. The ocean breeze and the large open windows were glorious. I was sad to leave.

November 2023

Condo was very nice. Oceanfront, nice balcony and awesome view. Sea turtles and a view of the last few remaining humpbacks leaving for Alaska could be seen from balcony. Nicely equipped kitchen. Towels and bed linens very nice. Could have used AC at times but fans were usually enough. The afternoon sun really beats down on the place but they also have sun blinds on the balcony which help but then blocks the view. Neighbors were at times very noisy. The balconies are close to each other and people tend to talk loud and party on them. Pool and beach small but nice. Not a great swimming beach as there are lots of rocks underneath the water but you can go in and snorkel if experienced and play in the waves if brave enough. Some beach toys like a bougie board and tubes would be nice. Nice small sandy beach though. I would say the place could use a good deep cleaning especially floors and bathroom. Parking lot small with small tight spaces. Pricing per night reasonable but all the add on extra fees way too much! Host fees especially high!

Rating Details: The property manager was adequately helpful. The vacation rental was very dirty. I was more than happy with the location. I was satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: The suite is as it appears in the photos. The view is great and the location on the island was perfect for us. We were able to snorkel off the beach and get to nearby snorkelling areas. The big disappointment was in the cleanliness of the suite. Clearly they only cleaned superficially because when we pulled out the couch to set up the bed we found food underneath. In addition, in the bedrooms there were clothing items and garbage left from previous guests. The kitchen was also very dirty. Dried on food on surfaces. We stay in rentals all the time around the world and we have never encountered such a poorly cleaned suite. It was disappointing that we had to spend our vacation time cleaning the place.

Love the area and closeness to so many things. And perfect to have a beach right there. Lots of families with small kids so be prepared to see them running around and yelling, LOL, but it didn't bother us. Great views and a great time. Thanks for the stay.

We traveled with 2 adults and 3 children (7-12) and everyone was blown away by the view (and sea turtle sleeping on the beach) the moment we walked in. The beach and pool were perfect for the kids (and adults). Coffee and equipment rentals are a quick walk and Lahaina and Whalers Village are short drives away.

Overall this unit was a 10/10! The location is amazing! Makes it so easy to access pool & beach. Maybe I missed some instructions about doors or switches, and what to do, lol but it was a good place to stay overall. Truly will be back!

Our stay was wonderful. JD, the Nohonani Manager, was friendly and helpful. The location is close to many fabulous snorkeling spots and the snorkeling in front of the condo is decent too. We saw lots of turtles swimming by while we were sitting on the lanai. Wish the screen door to the lanai worked so we could have had some air circulation in the kitchen and living room but other than that we liked the condo.

The place was well maintained and the location was amazing. We were near Boss Frog and rented snorkeling gear and able to enjoy the ocean by the unit. We could used AC since we are from Vegas and used to the dry cool hot weather but the unit had enough fans and open windows to have breeze during the day. The host was very prompt on responses and we appreciated the welcome amenities.

July 2023

Stayed for 14 days. Great area, but a couple things to consider if renting this unit...the furniture was the most uncomfortable furniture, the beach chairs were both broken, and the patio and bedroom are right next to beach entrance and outdoor shower. So, if u are looking for a more quiet unit, this is not the one. The unit was very clean, and the property is great! The beach is amazing, and the whole experience was wonderful!
