About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Welcome to another great MAUI FOOTPRINTS property (Royal Kahana 413).

This lovely, one-bedroom unit has a complete, unobstructed view of the Pacific Ocean, with very mild surf and great swimming conditions. It has recently been refurnished and redecorated, including a new, hotel-quality, king-sized bed; new sleeper-sofa; and black-out drapes in the bedroom.

This suite has a washer/dryer, central air conditioning, a fully-equipped kitchen and a walk-in shower. Wifi Internet connectivity is complimentary in this suite.

In many people's opinion (read the guest comments at the end), this unit has the best LOCATION on Maui, the best LOCATION in Kahana, and the best LOCATION in the Royal Kahana. It's on the leeward/sheltered side of the building to reduce any impact of the trade winds and gives you great oceanfront views of incredible sunsets, whales (when is season) and the islands of Lanai and Molokai.

The Royal Kahana has an in-ground pool, five BBQs, ping-pong tables, an exercise room, free morning coffee and an on-site activities center/concierge. Across the street is Kahana Gateway Plaza, a small shopping mall with places such as the Maui Brewing Company, a coffee shop, a Whaler's convenience store, a gas station, McDonald's and several other shops. Dollie's Pub & Cafe and Miso Phat sushi restaurant are also within walking distance for an easy meal. Lahaina, Ka'anapali, and Kapalua are only minutes away by car, as are many world-class beaches (D. T. Fleming beach is just north and has been voted one of the best beaches in the world; the well-known Ka'anapali Beach is to the south).

If a modern unit with stunning ocean views in a prime location is what you are seeking, this is the place for you.

NOTE: This unit is cleaned just prior to your arrival and then again after your departure. There is not interim daily maid service.

Just a few of the guest comments from our guestbook from over the years are:


What a terrific place you have! We loved sitting on your lanai spotting turtles offshore and seeing whale spouts. The sunsets were fabulous as well. We walked the beach every day and were rewarded with turtles that were sunning themselves in the rocks by the park to the far left. We enjoyed snorkeling at Kapalua Bay and Napili Bay, plus right off this shore down by the park. Great mai-tais were to be had during 'Aloha Hour' - (3 - 5) at Leilanis & the Hula Grill at Whaler's shopping plaza in Kaanapali Beach. We also enjoyed Maui Brewing right behind your place. We hope to return someday!

'We came here for our 30th anniversary and were not disappointed. The condo and the view were just great! Every day we said, 'Today was the most awesome day' starting with the luau in Lahaina, then the sunrise & bike ride down Haleakala, then snorkeling on Lanai & finally the Road to Hana which was spectacular and we went clear around to the winery with no problem... Capped the week off with a sunset dinner cruise. One of our BEST weeks of our 30 yrs! Thank you so much!!!'

'I wanted to connect and thank you for allowing us to share your beautiful and comfortable Maui home-away-from-home. Our stay was wonderful and the Royal Kahana fit our needs perfectly.

I can’t express how lovely our time on Maui was, and always is, and how lucky we were to have stayed in your beautiful island home. The sunsets were awesome, there were monk seals off our beach, as well as turtles and a giant eagle ray we snorkeled with right off the reef in front. We really needed this Hawaiian holiday and you helped us make it possible. Thank you Thank you. Thank you!'

We are just getting packed up to leave this morning and I wanted to let you know we had a FABULOUS vacation. Your Condo was everything you said it would be and more! We loved having our breakfast on the lani each morning enjoying the breeze and the ocean view. The beaches you recommended were excellent and I even saw a turtle snorkeling at Kapaula beach! We would like to know what type bed you have, we enjoyed a restful sleep each night. We also enjoyed falling asleep to the sound of the ocean each night. Thanks again, we had a wonderful trip and are sad to leave. I'm already thinking of the next time I come back.'

'Hi Eddie,

Bob and I wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed our stay in your condo last week. It was wonderful waking up to that view

everyday. Couldn't have asked for anything better in the condo.

Every amenity was there. Location was great and having the fitness center was a real plus. All the info you sent was very helpful.

Thanks again for making our vacation so memorable. We will definitely be back.'

About Becky Fuller

I had dreamed about owning a second home in Hawaii for many years, and finally the dream has come true. I love it here, at any time of the year. I live in a great area but am always looking forward to my next trip to Maui.

Becky Fuller purchased this condo in 2016

Why Becky Fuller chose Kahana (Maui)

I found that the unique characteristics here in Kahana suited me the best. The Royal Kahana is about as close to the ocean as you would want to get (indeed, all new properties are required by law to be hundreds of feet away from the coast for public access). There is a country feel here in Kahana that you don't get anywhere else, yet you are so close to the large resorts.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I enjoyed our stay in this condo very much. Looking at the great ocean and beautiful sunsets all day, every day! Listening to the waves makes for a wonderful night's sleep :) and watching the turtles and stingrays is entertaining. We've made lots of trips to Maui and Kahana is becoming our favorite spot (sorry Kihei!). Hope to return here again soon. Mahalo.

PS The Aloha Mixed Plate in Lahaina has great food at an even better price! Great breakfast at The Gazebo (but really long wait) and the happy hour @ Sands of Kahana is excellent!

Amazing ocean front view that is very affordable

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 10 days in January 2017. The condo was excellent - very clean, spacious and is exactly as the photos display. The view from the balcony was amazing - fabulous sun sets and we were able to see the whales first thing in the morning (with the help of some binoculars) It was great to have a washer and dryer in the unit and the place was fully stocked with bath towels, beach towels etc. etc. Don't need to bring anything other than suntan lotion. We especially appreciated the use of the owner's beach chairs, coolers and boogie boards for our day trips to the beach, so we didn't have to rent anything. The snorkeling equipment needs to be replaced but other than that everything in the unit was perfect. The Royal Kahana itself is starting to show it's age - we were disappointed that the tennis courts were not operational - the courts are in rough shape and need major repair, plus there is no longer a hot tub or a beach on site. However that aside I would highly recommend this condo for both short term and long term stays and hopefully the complex has plans to upgrade some of their amenities. Thank you to Becky for all her help and quick responses to our questions etc, - greatly appreciated! We hope to be back one day.

Nice View, Good Sized unit, poor parking and noisy pool area at night

  • 3 of 5

We used this unit mainly for sleeping after our daily outings and some dinners on the lanai making use of the grill area below which was nice. If you are on a budget or a family with children this building may be the place for you. This unit in particular is only 1 bed, so probably not for families or small children. The day of arrival the Hawaiian woman working the desk seemed fairly angry at us when we asked for parking, most others later that seemed much more helpful and nice though. In the unit we found an extremely large amount of knickknacks and mis-matched décor placed in every part of this unit giving you lots to look at but was a bit overwhelming, especially when you wanted to place items on nightstands or the dresser which was difficult due to the clutter, so we had to move some of it out of the way. I can say, I've never seen anyone squeeze in décor from as many parts of the world, China to Africa and Hawaiian to Western from top to bottom, left to right! Towels and rugs could probably be refreshed as they are mismatched and kinda yellowing/stained but still clean. The bed was super squish. Be sure you return before 7-8:00p or you will not get parking easily. A couple of times we had to ask security to assist with a spot, he was not exactly happy but he did usually find something in an illegal zone, warning we need to move it in the AM or be towed. We did use the beach a few times and there was nice sand, as its summer, but was a bit of a bummer you couldn't sit on the chairs in grassy area and see the ocean due to the restoration project at hand. Keep in mind this is not a resort, there are no grounds or paths surrounding the buildings. The windows in the unit are old and VERY thin and don't totally close, as we listened to screaming children or parties at the pool each night until 10:00 until it closed. They did enforce the close time, but if you wanted to sleep early that wouldn't always happen. Some nights the wind shifted just right, so howling wind screamed through the cracks, drowned it out.Security pounded down our door at 12:30am on day 4, as some woman was not able to locate her own unit. They did apologize, I was displeased as I couldn't believe they didn't verify her unit before going door to door? All in all our stay was ok, and the people working in the building are not a reflection on the unit. It has some charm, but again not a resort and if you just need a place to base your stay on a budget this place does the trick.

Owner's Response: There is actually sleeping for four in this unit. In addition to the king-sized bed in the bedroom, the sofa in the living room is a sleeper sofa which converts to another bed that sleeps two.

Gorgeous vacation location ! Stunning!

  • 5 of 5

Our 50th wedding anniversary vacation was wonderful. Becky,s property is beautiful and very well maintained. We were so comfortable it was hard to leave. The views were stunning and we even could see whales breaching from our patio which we spent a lot of time on, and a few times I hated to leave it so we could go sightseeing. We are already thinking about next spring and our vacation on Maui at Becky,s. We loved it and I’m sure you will too!

A great place to spend a relaxing time!

  • 4 of 5

The property of Royal Kahana is our favorite place to stay while in Maui. We usually have family so have had a 2bedroom/2bath in the past. This condo was nice and clean which is usually what is important to us. Comfortable bed, great view of ocean and pool. The only thing we would change is updating décor and new curtains on the slider and bedroom as they are a bit ragged. We would stay here again and would recommend it to others.
