About the property

Luxury 2 bedroom 2.5 bath. Incredible views and beach. Near Lahaina & Kapalua

Kahana Sunset is a beachfront resort on the world famous west coast of Maui between Kaanapali and Kapalua. You will be swimming and snorkeling with turtles and tropical fish off the white sandy beach of protected Keoni Nui Bay. There is also a swimming pool that has an adjoining children's wading pool.

Whether you want to create a meal from the fresh local fare in the gourmet kitchen or crave a burger prepared on the property's well-kept grills, your food will be seasoned with a view of the beautiful gardens, backdropped by the blue waters of the Pacific, framed with a sunset between Lanai and Molokai.

Fifteen minutes north is Kapalua, where there are two championship golf courses, three world class beaches, zip lines and a variety of shops and restaurants.

Just south is Kaanapali with "Whalers Village" and historic Lahaina town. You will find outdoor malls, restaurants, water activities and more.

World famous Honolua Bay is a 20 minute drive away. During the winter, go watch the greatest surfers in the world ride huge picture-perfect waves. The rest of the year, catamarans ferry snorkelers in from the surrounding resorts.

Unit D4 has 2 ocean view lanais/balconies. One from the master suite and one from the living room. There is a 60" smart TV in the living area and free Wifi if you don't want to venture too far off the grid. There are boardgames that will keep you entertained too. But you will quickly learn, the real show is in the waters in Keoni Nui Bay.

This unit has all the amenities of home with an amazing view. After your first visit, you'll immediately begin planning your next trip.

About The Owner

We are Southern Californians who were introduced to Kahana Sunset by another family that owns a unit. Mary and I have been bringing our two children for the last fifteen years and Kahana Sunset/West Maui has become our home away from home. Our daughter is in her fourth year at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, and our son is starting his senior of high school. They grew up at Kahana Sunset catching lizards and geckos, swimming, snorkeling, skim and paddle boarding. They spent, and continue to spend, their days from the morning until well into the evening active, and making friends that they have stayed in contact with. We have never worried about the kids in this beautiful and healthy environment.

Mary and I are active with most of the day spent in or around the water of Keoni Nui bay. We usually end our day watching the amazing sunsets, and numerous stars.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2017

Why The Owner chose Lahaina

Kahana Sunset was a choice we made after spending time at resorts, on other parts of the island, and always finding ourselves comparing where we were with Kahana Sunset. Kahana Sunset always came out on top.

I am a golfer and was fortunate enough to score a hole-in-one during a tournament at Kapalua, Bay Course. One of the gifts was a couple of free nights at the Ritz Carlton. On our next trip, we planned on spending the first nights at the Ritz and then the next two weeks at Kahana Sunset. Within a couple of hours of checking into the hotel, our son asked how much longer did we have to stay there, and could we just go to Kahana Sunset. I think that sums up how the entire family feels.

What makes this condo unique

Kahana Sunset is a beautiful and quiet place where you can relax and enjoy the surroundings and your family and friends.

We know the former owners of D4 who had remodeled the unit and were living there full-time. After we bought the unit, Mary spent a number of weeks on island (she really struggled with that), making D4 our home where we hope to visit and stay on a longer term basis in the future. With our updates in the décor, kitchen, smart tv, new linens, we think you will want to spend more time here too. You walk in and see the view of the beach, the pool and garden area and feel like you have found your piece of paradise. You will find that the spirit of aloha is alive and well at Kahana Sunset, and especially in our unit. We are excited to have the opportunity to share it with you. We know that you will be embraced by the Kahana Sunset ohana just like us.

Perfect View!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Maui and did a lot of research on where to stay. This was a great location as it was not too busy but close enough to Lahaina and Whaler's Village. The condo was very well stocked with everything you need including all the beach toys, towels, cooler and even snorkeling equipment. The grounds are kept up very nice and are maintained daily, including cleaning the BBQ grills every morning. The view from the lanai was perfect and even saw whales in the distance on many mornings. I do have to agree with a previous review that it is not very sound proof and private upstairs where the bedrooms are. This was not a problem for us but you could definitely hear and may bother some people if they like to sleep in later than others. Also loved how close the Napili Market is for quick grocery needs. Other guests were very friendly and quiet, no problems at all. A thumbs up for anyone looking for a great place to stay!

Great condo. Very well equipped. Lots of extras in the kitchen. Love the wine opener!

  • 5 of 5

The entire property is beautiful. The grounds are maintained daily as are the bbq area and pool (both are conveniently located to this condo).The condo is updated and very comfortably furnished. Great patio on the main level with an extending sun shade when necessary.

Overall it was great and we will entertain staying here again.

I would recommend more than 1 color of bath towels, especially in the second bedroom. It would eliminate confusion!

Also, please address the louvers/screen in the entry door. There was a note warning to keep them closed. We honored the request. It would have been nice to enjoy the air flow and lovely breezes.

It would have been nice to have a DVD player. We inquired beforehand but didn't really get a definite yes or no answer.

Appreciated all of the notes/instructions.

Beautiful view, clean amazing place

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay here and if we return to the island we would stay here again for sure!

Pros: The place was very clean, we were so impressed with the staff taking care of the grounds and the unit when we arrived. The deck was perfect and we spent most of our time there when we were in the unit. The deck has partitions that help make it feel more private and a table to enjoy all your meals on the deck! The solar heated pool was a bit small but it worked well for us. The smaller section of the pool works great for little kids (we have a 3 yr old) as it is shallow and a bit warmer. The beach was also small, but very adequate. When the tide is high it can wash your castle away, but we enjoyed many many hours on the private beach! Amazing. The location is perfect as it is close to Lahaina for any activities that you need while the road is off the highway so there is less traffic and a nice place for a bike ride for me. We so enjoyed listing and watching the ocean from the deck, what a view! The kitchen had many things that you might need in it along with some ocean toys on the deck and beach towels in the closet.

Cons: It does not have air conditioning which was fine with us as fans were just fine. Unfortunately, later in the week there were some people who would smoke outside the guest room and with everything opened up the whole room smelled of smoke. There is not much privacy between the two rooms with open walls at the top. The master room also does not have curtains across the sliding glass door and my Mom preferred to change in the bathroom in fear of someone seeing her.

All in all a wonderful gem in Maui! Thanks.

Thank you for making my first trip to Hawaii a memorable one! The property is well maintained and had all the amenities that you can possibly need and some. Not to mention the beach is a few feet away! I would most definitely stay here again!

Great stay in Kahana Sunset!

  • 5 of 5

Very happy with the condo, well stocked and provided everything we needed. We've stayed at many VRBO's in the past and with a family of 5 there is nothing more discouraging than arriving to find a cupboard with 4 plates and 4 glasses with cutlery to match and one pot and a pan. We cooked most of our meals at the condo and it provided plenty of everything and more! The unit was great, the complex was great, the view, the beach and the other guests all made this vacation very enjoyable. Thank-you!

Great stay in Maui

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. Beautiful views of the ocean. Lots of great sunsets. We were greeted with lots of goodies when we arrived. Had a minor problem with the wii fii but management was right there in helping us. It was a bit hot in the condo since there isn’t any air conditioner. We made it a point to be out during the hot part of the day. This was one of the best stocked condos, there was nothing that we didn’t have. Would definitely come back.
