About the property

Oceanfront studio Condo. Sleeps 3. Queen bed & Queen sofa bed.

Just twenty feet from the ocean, this remodeled studio condo has a spectacular Lanai for dining, entertaining, or lounging. It is huge, perfect for viewing the turtles that feed below and the whales during the season.

Located minutes from Lahaina, Kaanapali Beach and Kapalua. A short jog along quiet Lower Honoapiilani road gets you to Napili beach and the beaches at Kapalua. Golf at Kaanapali, Kapalua or one of the many courses close by. Surf, snorkel and swim in the ocean at your doorstep. Or just read a book on sandy Kahana beach located adjacent to the property.

You won't need to bring a beach towel, those are provided, too, as are beach chairs and a small cooler for the beach. (Sometimes the beach chairs and cooler need to be replaced; we do that every time we are on island).

About Matt, Georgene and Tim

Having been in the travel business for 30 years, The Hawaiian Island was our speciality. We were married on the Big Island and managed a timeshare on Kauai and Maui. Once the timeshare expired, we purchased the condo from the Owner/Builder of the Pohailani Complex. It has been remodeled with Tiled bath, Lanai, hardwood floors and complete kitchen remodel.

Matt, Georgene and Tim purchased this studio in 2007

Why Matt, Georgene and Tim chose Lahaina

As previous stated, we purchased our condo from the owner/builder of the Pohailani Complex. We love the location of West Maui. It's close to the many activities Maui has to offer and the Oceanfront location makes it spectacular to view the beautiful sunsets from our huge Lanai. It's like a seperate room with a double lounger.

What makes this studio unique

Whales off your lanai during the winter December-March and watch the Turtles that feed below from the Lanai. Walking distance to everything you need and minutes by car or bike to the best beaches and golf on the islands.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved mauicondo209! It was very comfortable and clean. The huge lanai was a great place to relax and have meals. The view was incredible! If we did nothing else, we could sit for hours and stare at the waves and the turtles. It is centrally located on the west side of the island, so it's any easy and short trip to Lahaina and Ka'anapali. Parking was a cinch. It was free and conveniently located to the unit. We definitely give it two thumbs up!

Looking forward to our next visit.

Great place to stay, lovely and cozy.

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Maui. We were looking for a place comfortable, yet affordable. This condo met both. I have read all the reviews ahead, kinda have a quite high expectation, there was still surprise for us with considerate details. While its raining, we spent quite some time inside, cooking and relaxing on the balcony, watching the ocean right in front of you. The view from the balcony is amazing, literally 180 degree ocean view. Location is convenient, a plaza is less than 10 mins drive with grocery store and small restaurant, and one popular Chinese restaurant is less than 3 mins walk. There are quite a few beaches within 10 mins drive. The condo is incredibly well equipped, we found snorkeling gears, body boards and beach chair, and everything we need to enjoy our 5 days' stay.

Most of all, we are very satisfied, and we definitely will come back and i have already recommended to my friends.

Thanks, Matt, Georgene and Tim.

This condo was perfect. From Unbelievable sunsets to watching sea turtles feeding from the balcony in the mornings, it was the perfect setting for relaxation. I was in town for work so I did not visit the beaches but the owners had all the gear available if I wanted to head to the beaches. The unit does not have a washer or dryer but the property has a laundry facility just a short two minute walk away. The facility is clean and had a wonderful spot to sit and read while you wait for the laundry to finish. I will be definitely trying to re-rent this property every time I return to Maui

We thoroughly enjoyed the condo and would highly recommend it. The view from the balcony was fantastic and I spent many evenings with libations and looking at the views.

Very relaxing and had all the comforts we needed including boogie boards, snorkeling equipment, nice beach chairs and cooler.

One minor detail that we were warned about was that the garbage disposal had a slight odor. We just kept it closed with the sink plug and it resolved the issue. Might want to consider just removing for future suggestions.

Thanks again though for use of your place and we look forward to coming back soon!

Owner's Response: Alan and Ginger, Thank you for the nice review. We’ve also spent many evenings on that deck enjoying the sunset. Regarding the disposal, We were just at the condo in late October and we didn’t notice anything. Thank you for bringing it to our attention. We will certainly rectify it ASAP. Hope you consider condo again for your Maui vacation in the future. Mahalo, Georgene, Matt and Tim

Absolutley AMAZING!!!!

  • 5 of 5

What a gem this place is!!! We prefer to come to Maui and stay away from the big resorts and crowds. This is about our 8th trip here and we always stay on the west side and we have come to love Kahana. The first thing you notice when you walk in the door is the amazing view - you are greeted with the site of the ocean and the sound of the waves crashing - you seriously can't get any closer!!! This studio condo is PERFECT for two people - it is well planned out -it is as clean as a whistle, it has everything you need to prepare your own meals if that is what you choose to do. We ate on the lanai every night- the view was better than any restaurant. We have dubbed this our favorite room to stay in if it is just the two of us coming without the kids. If you are looking for resort amenities, then this is not the place - no fancy pool, etc. If you are looking for a fantastic peaceful piece of heaven - choose this room. You will not regret it. If we come back to Maui without the kiddos again, we will look to stay here and will probably adjust our dates if we have to in order to book this property. Thanks for the great stay!!!

Owner's Response: Wow Denise What a wonderful review. !!! We remolded the condo ourselves, tiled bathroom and lanai, built in breakfast bar, wood floors and custom kitchen. It was our desire to make it as comfortable and special as you have described. You are right. The location could not be closer to the ocean and the sunset views make it perfect for dining on our lanai. Thank you so much. We look forward to your next visit. Mahalo, Georgene Matt & Tim

We love this condo so much! We spent a lot of time on the big lanai looking out the ocean. We saw a couple of turtles were swimming just right under the condo. We had dinner and watched the sunset on the lanai almost everyday. The bed was comfortable, the kitchen was fully stocked with cookware. Great location. All in all a perfect vacation for us. We highly recommend this condo and will definitely return.
