Property description

Aloha from Beautiful West Maui!

UPDATE~ Just bring your shorts and swimsuits.............time to relax island -style!
Our condo has everything you need for a short or longer holiday. Beach towels, cooler, umbrella, shampoo, laundry soap and many Trader Joes spices. Full kitchen and since we have lived here full time for so many years we can steer you towards great restaurants and know many of the boat owners so there is always an event or special we can steer you to!
Fabulous weather here, 80-85 degrees and the ocean is a pleasant 80 degrees. We are enjoying great snorkeling right off our beach with with turtles................and recently dolphins.
85 Percent of our guests are repeat to our condo...
We have dozens of references.....
We have lived FULL TIME here on Maui for over 14 years. We are happy to share our knowledge of all these great specials...since we live here FULL TIME we also are looking for bargains. Now is the time that many restaurants have discounts for visitors. We know some great tips for beaches, Hana and Upcountry. Happy to report there are some new great restaurants in West Maui if you are returning!
Relax each evening and enjoy the sunset and beautiful tiki torches that are along our ocean shoreline. They are lit each evening and provide a beautiful ambiance while enjoying the sunset or BBQ ing. Also, new BBQS..........so nice to BBQ, watch the sunset and watch the turtles!
Recently there have been lots of spinner dolphins passing by also providing quite a show for everyone! Yes of course the turtles are very plentiful! Our guests tell us they see more turtles in front of the condo than anywhere else on the island.....including 'Turtle Town'
If you are returning to our condo, you will notice a few changes. New carpet in the bedroom. Also we added some more colorful grass cloth wallpaper in the living room and bedroom.
Once again, we have just completed another remodel of our condo. We recently traveled to Bali and had some custom Bali furniture made for our condo and features throughout our condo. We have recently completed New Tile throughout the living room, kitchen and bathroom. Since we love ISLAND and OCEAN LIFE so much we decided to incorporate a custom granite 'Trio of Whales' in the living room floor tile in our tile design. Our new bathroom floor includes baby granite turtles swimming on the floor and in the new large walk in shower a Large inlaid granite turtle.
After a great day on Maui.... relax and enjoy the California King bed. Our guests say this is the most comfy bed they have ever slept on. Truly like sleeping on a cloud!
UPDATE: .. Lots of marine life activity. Whales and dolphins!! Turtles galore! 24 turtles in front of our property last weekend!
Our kitchen is stocked with an array of spices, no need to bring any! Laundry......new washers and dryers just steps from our condo and we supply laundry soap, etc.
Bring bathing suit and toothbrush.........we have beach towels, chairs, umbrella. Bathroom is stocked with shampoo, blow dryer and all paper goods......
Last month we went out on a snorkel trip and were lucky enough to see the three types of dolphins that live in Hawaii. I highly recommend a day trip around Lanai for snorkeling if you really enjoy dolphins while it is not guaranteed we were lucky enough to be surrounded by close to 200 -300 dolphins on our way back to Maui. We can suggest who to book this trip directly with, and saved $$.
LOTS of sea life here to enjoy. Enjoy the many RESIDENT TURTLES swimming in front of our property. We enjoy snorkeling with them! Keep your eyes out for spinner dolphins which we have been seeing early in the morning. Recently we snorkeled Honolua Bay (only 5 min away) and we were joined by over 200 dolphins==quite a thrill!
We are happy to refer you to one of our neighbors if we are already booked, there IS availability.
Come and enjoy our NEWLY remodeled one bedroom, one bath, West Maui condo with amazing views. NEW COMFY CALIFORNIA KING BED!! We have just remodeled our condo. New GRANITE countertops, new ceramic cook top stove, and new kitchen appliances. Custom bamboo wallpaper throughout the condo. NEWLY REMODELED TROPICAL BATHROOM WITH LARGE WALK IN SHOWER WITH UNIQUE CUSTOM GRANITE TURTLE AND 'BABY TURTLES SWIMMING IN THE BATHROOM FLOOR TILES'. Our Bamboo bathroom with new grasscloth wallpaper throughout. New bedroom & living room furniture. Our condo has Lots of TLC and we supply all paper products, laundry soap, all beach supplies including umbrella, coolers beach towels, chairs and Boogie boards! We do have a safe for your valuables. Oceanfront heated pool. BBQ area near the ocean. Beautiful sandy beach now at property, very private. *Note, this is a seasonal beach depending on waves**
Relax on YOUR private lanai and see gorgeous sunsets, sunrises and Molokai and Lanai. In season (October through May) watch magnificent whale shows. Since we are a ground floor/end unit, our lanai is very private, perfect for candlelight dinners! Oceanfront BBQ area. Most of the year we enjoy turtles and occasionally dolphins right in front of the condo........ We are located in Polynesian Shores, a small west Maui oceanfront complex. We also have neighbors in the complex who also rent their condo....perfect for families or friends traveling together. 80% OF OUR GUESTS ARE REPEAT GUESTS ....SO WE HAVE MANY REFERRALS.
Our condo has a perfect location = GROUND FLOOR + an END UNIT! Free assigned parking, a close walk to the condo and no stairs or elevators. FREE SECURE WIFI.
We LIVE FULL TIME RIGHT UP THE STREET FROM OUR CONDO...so we are happy to answer any questions or give you suggestions, etc. WE HAVE DINED AT MOST RESTAURANTS AND BEEN ON MOST OF THE BOATS SO WE CAN HELP YOU WITH THE BEST CHOICE OF VALUE! THIS PROPERTY IS perfect to watch the sunset and also see the resident turtles each morning and evening. It is very common to see turtles and sometimes dolphins right in front of the condo!! .
Perfect place to relax after a long beach day or day of golf. Great place to see whales, dolphins and our 'resident' turtles! Our condo and the lanai is NON SMOKING, however there is a designated smoking area.

This location is perfect for a honeymoon, wedding location, family reunion, or quiet get-away. There is also an oceanfront, heated pool. Lots to do or just relax and enjoy the Aloha spirit.

We have many, many referrals and also recent photos.

WONDERFUL LOCATION TO WATCH THE WHALES IN SEASON (Oct-May) and resident turtles. Great place to relax and enjoy the ALOHA SPIRIT! Located in a residential area so not tall buildings or high rises. Away from busy tourist areas but close to drive (5 min).

Lots of great beaches to explore nearby and fabulous snorkeling!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1997

About the owner: We have loved Maui since our first trip in the mid 1970's. Our dream was to one day make our move from Southern CA to Maui. We took our leap of faith over 18 years ago purchasing this condo. After many trips we made our permanent home in Maui 14 years ago. We live full time only 2 minutes from the condo, so we know the islands well and enjoy helping our guests find their own unique vacation.

Why the Owner Chose Kahana:
Perfect West Maui location, great weather year around (not too hot). Close to everything. We enjoy being located away from high rises, our property is located in a 2 story building. Only 52 units so a small oceanfront property, not a huge resort.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
We live FULL TIME here on Maui so we have insight on best boats, deals and can pass along these to our guests. We live FULL TIME less than a minute from our rental property.....always available if you have any questions! We have been traveling to Maui since 1972.
