Wonderful place and awesome views

This was an amazing property with great views and very nice furniture. It was clean. Highly recommend!

A delightful location and marvellous second floor condo overlooking the pool & ocean. Condo was clean, well apportioned and easy to access. Kahana is a smaller, a little further down the road location but had beautiful sunsets and whale sightings almost every afternoon! Delicious poke at the convenience store across the street and even a McDonalds for those nights you needed an affordable ice cream cone or carmel sunday. Unfortunately they were renovating the location while we were there and it WAS NOT made clear how BAD the noise would be…like ‘we gotta get outta here’ bad. So…just confirm before booking as the discount applies DID NOT match the mental pain & suffering some days!

This unit is in a great location, can’t beat the view! While there was some electrical issues that the entire building was dealing with which set us back a bit, it was of no fault of the owners and they were great staying in touch the entire time. Loved watching the whales and just listening to the ocean hit the shore.

Generally was a good clean accommodation. The only problem we experienced was very tiny bugs on the counter near the kitchen sink. We left 2 muffins in a clamshell over night and the next morning the muffins and the counter top was crawling with these tiny bugs. Thankfully I noticed them before I took a bite!

Absolutely amazing spot easy to get anywhere on the island. Enjoy the pool. Enjoy the ocean and every minute enjoy the view.

Amenities were great for two people. Views were outstanding. Owner was available if there were any problems (there were none) . Nicely decorated, exactly as the picture shows. We were not disappointed. Would do it again.

The beach view, beach access and pool access were wonderful! There were numerous restaurants within walking distance including super great sushi and Maui brewing company. Location is ideal

Awesome place for a quiet Hawaii getaway. A little drive from the major attractions, but worth it, given the price. The apartment is very clean, neat and comfortable. It had everything we needed, even beach chairs and a cooler! The view is amazing! You can see the ocean from several rooms, the view from the balcony is the best! The pool is available for use for free, and it is heated, which was nice. The host was very responsive. Thank you fornthe great stay!

The most spectacular view in all of Maui. Condo is very good but could use some updating (living room furniture). Refrigerator door swings the wrong way(very easy to fix).

the apartment itself is nice and well maintained. Building and neighborhood not bad and adequate to the price. Everything was fair.

Property is overall a bit dated but they are currently renovating. CONS-no place to charge electric vehicle, condo is showing minor signs of wear and tear(sliding screen door would fall off tracks, window sills need painting ect... PROS-Best view in the bldg. We stayed Feb 16-26 and can’t count how many whales and turtles we saw right in front of balcony. 3 bathrooms, newer TV’s, comfy beds, quite atmosphere, pool nicely heated, host was great to deal with. Overall would recommend to friends and family.

Unexpected by everyone, a jackhammer started next door and kept going off and on the whole time we were there.Fortunately, Mic of itripMaui, found us a nicer place although we’ve had to move twice, she has been wonderfully helpful. The place was quite rundown and small in an unattractive highrise

This is a comfortable place to stay. The kitchen has all you need, the balcony views are incredible. It is a great homebase for all you want to do in west Maui.

Great location for us, I saw whales out in the water on the first day. I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We did find a chocolate on the floor that didn’t belong to either of us, and I found a plastic piece in one of the washcloths that could’ve been uncomfortable in the wrong area. All in all great spot and fairly comfortable place to lay our heads.

This unit was exactly what we needed for our stay. Its was awesome. We have stayed at this location before and this unit was exactly as listed. The owner Todd is incredible with communication. It comes with everything you need for beach days, Coolers, Umbrellas, Awesome chairs. We stayed just over 3 weeks. We love Maui and Kahana / Napili Area. We will be back. Thanks Todd for everything. Mahola!!!

Your lovely condo was just like the pictures. Every amenity was here for us. We saw tons of whales right off the lanai. I think about 100. The folder you left describing the local beaches and restaurants was very helpful. I’d definitely stay here again. Mahalo

We arrived at 9pm and entered the condo to find water on the floor from the bathroom down the hall past the kitchen to the dining room. We took all the clean towels to sop up the water and attempt to dry the floors. I found the problem then shutoff the water to the toilet where the valve was faulty. During the cleanup my wife had found some dead cockroach’s in the kitchen and that freaked her out. Yes we encountered some live ones both in the kitchen and bedroom. The condo maintenance came the next day and repaired the toilet valve with no further problems. However there was some major repair work being done to the outside structure of the condo. This caused lots of noise from 9am to 4pm. I’m sorry but this was not the restful 4 nights we were looking for. The view from the condo is beautiful. It overlooks the pool and the Pacific Ocean including the nearby islands. The beach here is covered with very large sandbags to help with the beach erosion. We did sleep well at night and this place has a great mattress. This review is somewhat negative and I’m sorry for that but this is the way it was for us.

The condo is wonderfully setup, has everything you would need to start off your vacation. The view from the balcony on the 6th floor is outstanding. Was fortunate to see whales everyday and was so much fun to watch. There are a few restaurants close by as Kimberly mentions in the description which is great that you can park and walk. Did go to Dollies,(small but great neighborhood place)and the food is wonderful. Did have the pizza twice, and is so yummy good. Would love to return again, hopefully soon.

Royal Kahana #107 was a clean, updated and comfortable condominium for our vacation. The overall property itself is dated, but clean. The unit itself is updated, modern and comfortable. The views from the patio were amazing! We would certainly stay at this unit again.

We ended up chosing this location after our original VRBO was cancelled after Hawaii governor extended emergency housing for Lahaina fire. We had never stayed in Napili and were pleasantly suprised with the area. The condo building is dated so our first impression was underwhelming BUT the room was updated. We had ocean views, but know there is no ocean access in front of the condo, it has sandbags out front instead. We had no issue with this as we could drive or walk to beach access. The pool area was also dated but we never had an issue getting chairs and we saw so many turtles and whales from the pool area. The room itself has an air fryer, drip coffee maker, fridge, stove/oven, dishwasher, and refrigerator. It also had a coffee grinder. Closet had 2 Tommy bahama backpack beach chairs and a small cooler. Washer and dryer are small, but work well. Room has AC, but we much preferred letting the crosswinds blow through the room and the you can just listen to the waves. The only issue we had was the hallway construction and structural concrete repair which included the use of a jackhammer. We would definitely stay here again. Btw-at time of this post it is eighteen a day for parking you pay for when you enter the building. There was plenty of available parking, to include covered parking under the condo. Also there are luggage carts inside the main entrance to the right which makes moving in and out super easy.

Very comfortable and bright. View of ocean and whales was throughly enjoyed. The only issue was the shower entrance is a little tight to get in if you are of larger size.

Very nice upgrades. The place was clean, comfy, and aesthetically pleasing. Front door doesn't open well so we thought it was locked but it was actually just a hard door to open. And there wasn't as much of a view of the water as we thought there would be. But it was conveniently located just steps from the swimming pool and was well equipped with everything we needed. I'd definitely stay again!

Rick is a super host. Answered all inquiries quickly and the vrbo was clean and well stocked. Close to grocery stores, beautiful sunsets, whale watching and very relaxing. Will definitely come back to this VRBO. My wife and i loved it here. Thanks Rick.

This is our 2nd time staying with David. It feels like home from the moment we stepped into the unit. We really enjoyed watching the whales and wind surfers from our balcony. If we come back to Maui we would definitely stay at this condo again.

We absolutely enjoyed our stay. The view off the lanai was spectacular. The whale activity was exceptional. We saw lots of breach’s and calves with their mothers. The time by the pool was very relaxing and gave us as a family lots of interaction time. We enjoyed our walks in the morning, and the activities we went to were a short distance. We created some lifetime memories together as a family. Thank you very much Mike for letting us be able to stay in your condo. It was very comfortable and clean. Jennifer did a outstanding job on all of our needs at the condo. She deserves lots of accolades.

Great location and incredible view. The building is dated and in need of repair, which is ongoing. If you can put up with that, this is a great place to enjoy the water front!

Great location, easy to access and close to everything we needed. Especially happy about the Beach House Happy Hour and SUP rentals. Pool is great, property is well maintained and our unit was really nicely updated with everything we needed. Oh yeah… and endless whale sightings from the lanaI! Will definitely be back!

We totally enjoyed our stay. The ability to sit on the lanai and watch the whales was awesome. The location was good. A little better sand beach access would help.

Physical condition of condo poor. Damaged tiles, patio sliding door not working, wind howling through windows and patio door, furniture in poor shape. Concrete repair work noise very irritating..

We were disappointed…on arrival found water on the bathroom floor coming from the ceiling. We arrived on Friday and it wasn’t fixed until Tuesday. Using the toilet required sitting strategically in order to avoid being dripped on. The second bedroom fan was not secure and we informed the woman who came to check out the leak, but this wasn’t addressed during our stay. It was very hot in that room without air movement. Nextdoor and hallway construction included jack hammering starting at 9am each weekday morning. Could not enjoy the lanai or being in the condo because of the noise. The view was nice and the condo was well stocked.

Ricks condo was perfect for us- they provided so many amenities, but I must say my favorite was the binoculars! I spent hours watching the whales . It was fantastic. The unit is so comfortable and facing a great direction. We loved everything about our stay and Rick was super responsive to any questions or communication I had. I would highly recommend Ricks place . It is at the north end of Maui and in a quiet neighbourhood, so if you are looking for high action, and lots of people, this isn’t it. A short Uber or car ride will get you to Kaanapali where you can find all of that.

We loved our stay and wished we could have stayed longer. Beautiful views of the ocean from the patio and bedroom. We even spotted some whales while sitting outside on the patio. Condo is part of a beautiful building and in close proximity to beaches. Condo is well decorated, comfy, and clean. Highly recommend staying here for your vacation!

We had a nice time. Oven/stove didn’t work and there was a lot of construction to the building right outside our door. Would have been nice to be aware of that prior to arrival. Overall a very nice property and area to stay.

The location of this unit was great with a large balcony that overlooked the ocean and we were able to see whales almost constantly. Unit was very clean and appeared to be recently renovated. Building renovations were going on during our stay but was not an issue for us. Only issue we had was the washer was not working and could not be fixed while we were onsite. Was a little bit of an issue since we were on the tail end of a 2 week trip but we managed without it

This property was in a very nice location to explore the north and west coasts of Maui. This VRBO was very clean. We stayed in several VRBOs in Hawaii, and this was the cleanest by far. The host/s were very helpful, easy to work with, and very prompt in replying to our questions.

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!!

Not fancy, but clean and comfortable. Welcome basket was very handy since we arrived late. Awesome views, balcony overlooks the beach and sunset and we whale watched from the balcony. At this time of year, beach was very small, but better beach only 5 min drive away.

We decided to travel to Hawaii for the first time. The people in our family ranged from seven years old to 85. The condo was spectacular. It was an end unit so we were able to open the windows and enjoy the Hawaiian breeze daily. We did not turn on the air-conditioning for one day. The beds were comfortable, the condo is clean and well stocked. As a property, owner myself, the Swiss Chalet, Burt Lake, Michigan I must complement of the housekeeping staff. It is very difficult to keep a waterfront property so clean. The bathrooms were EV easy for my 85 year old mother to navigate who walks with a cane. My mother was able to ride the elevator to the basement floor and take the handicap ramp to the pool/beach front area. She and my children swim in the comfortably heated pool on a daily basis. We hope to come back and enjoy the condo in 2025.

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!!

Overall good experience. Great water pressure, nice kitchen, nice furnishings and room was super clean. Only three negatives- king mattress was really bad, curtains do not completely cover windows at the ends and the view wasn’t good unless you stand on the right side and look left. I would stay there again if the mattress were changed.
