About Suzy Moffett

Aloha My Name is Buz Moffett and I was raised in Lahaina and have enjoyed all the wonders Maui has to offer to those of us lucky enough to live here: Surfing, Fishing, Hiking, Fantastic Dining, Unreal Sunsets. My family and I make our home across the street from The Kahana Nui Villa and run it as an extension of our family home. Our guests become part of our extended Ohana.

Suzy Moffett purchased this house in 1999

Why Suzy Moffett chose West Maui

When we built Kahana Nui, we dreamed of creating a unique home that would complement the beauty of this idyllic location. Our plans were to build a 'pole house', but we did not want it to have the appearance of a “house on poles”. A concept was developed for a ground level Lanai adapting the openness of the Bali style homes. By having beautiful, carved screens integrated into the supporting structure, a “Balinese Lanai” could be added to enhance the home. Trips were made to Bali and Java. The skill of the carvers and uniqueness of many items expanded the concept. The carved screens were used throughout the house. The furnishings were combined with decorations to capture the Bali Style. Many ideas were suggested and different approaches tried until the house evolved as you now see it.

What makes this house unique

Pure Luxury In Paradise! Ocean breezes keep the climate temperate year round. From your choice of the upper or lower decks, you will enjoy spectacular views of the Islands of Lanai and Molokai. Magnificent sunsets are a daily pleasure. Located Only a few miles north of Lahaina and Kaanapali, in Kahana, Maui, the home sits on its own private little piece of oceanfront paradise. This location is ideal for shopping and dining out and is conveniently located just minutes from the West Maui airport and the world class Kapalua golf courses, as well as surf spots and unreal hikes.

We stayed at Kahana Nui in July 2015 for my father's 75th birthday. 6 adults, 6 kids. There was ample space for everyone. The house is gorgeous, stocked with pool toys and beach toys, and everything imaginable in the kitchen aside from food (hit up costco near the airport before heading to Kahana). We wanted for nothing! The house was impeccably clean. The kids had the best time swimming in the pool and on the beach. The adults enjoyed the lounges sitting poolside. Fins and goggles are provided for excellent snorkeling within 10 feet. Sea turtles greeted us on our first day.

We felt totally spoiled, and we can't imagine going back to Maui and staying anywhere else!

Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us. A fantastic vacation for all, with our children asking "when are we going back to Maui?" every week to this day!

Heaven On Earth

  • 5 of 5

This was truly the vacation of a lifetime! We celebrated our 50th anniversary with our 3 kids their spouses and our 6 grandchildren...14 in all. There was always something to do for all ages. The panoramic views are spectacular both inside & outside. The house is gorgeous and accommodating with room for all to enjoy. The surroundings are lush, private and spacious. The fountain, pool and spa, along with the tropical breezes and ocean waves made it a paradise for all.

Many DVDs and TV's are there, but were rarely used. Seating for meals, all eaten on the lanai, was adequate for all of us together. There is an outdoor shower to wash off salt water and sand. A ping pong table outside which we used a lot. Beach towels, noodles, water shoes and small swim boards were all supplied. There is a security gate and garage to fit our 4 rental cars.

We truly enjoyed our much too short week vacation at Kahana Nui. Our Hawaiian family reunion here will hold many memories for us all.

Fantastic hideaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Kahana Nui for Christmas week in 2014. There were four families with kids. It was an amazing experience. The house is peaceful, right on the ocean, and large enough for 14 people to hang out without tripping over one another. The view and the serenity are unparalleled (and remember, this was Christmas week when the Islands are just overrun). We ate most of our meals in, and the kitchen accommodated us without problem. The beach is a little rocky, but if you walk down the street two houses there is a beautiful (and empty) sandy beach. There's a lovely little pool in the back with an attached hot tub. WiFi was fast and reliable.

We rented paddle boards from "Alex" at Maui Stand Up Paddle Rentals (, which we highly recommend. Launch right from the back door into the protected bay there. Alex and his crew deliver and pick up the boards for free and give you the necessary instruction (it's not hard).

An excellent experience. You won't go wrong.

What a paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 12 stayed here November 20-27, 2014. It was awesome! Can't say enough good things about this property. We all just loved it! My husband & I & his Mom had the bedroom suites downstairs & our sons & their family had the upstairs where there are 2 more bedroom suites plus 2 more rooms with each having twin beds for the kids. Each suites walks out onto the deck which goes all around to the front. Going to sleep each night listening to the waves crashing was awesome! It was so nice that we really didn't want to go out to eat we just cooked there! There were no problems whatsoever but we're confident that if there was an issue it would be taken care of! So many wonderful memories made here with our family! Would love to go back someday! I've shared this property with friends so to everyone if you are looking for a beautiful place to stay this is it!

Amazing Villa!

  • 5 of 5

Honestly, this has to be one of the best "large" rental houses on Maui, and I loved it. Not only was the layout perfect for my party of 8, but the pool and private beach front wtih a view of Molokai are absolutely stunning.

If your looking for a little slice of paradise in west Maui, with a private beach and surrounded by other world famous beaches, this is it.

What a letdown.

  • 2 of 5

I have waited to write because I wanted to see how I felt about a year later. Sadly I feel about the same. My family and 3 others stayed at the Villa for a trip of a lifetime. I was completely let down. For starters the house was not near as clean as I would have expected upon our arrival. There was an obvious oder. Upon inspection I saw 15 plus ant traps along the kitchen floor, not something you want to see right off. Going through the rooms it was clear there was an infestation. There was a colony of ants in the upstairs bathroom that covered the bathroom mat. There were ants in every room of the house. There was also a huge termite issue. Nothing like having to wear shoes your whole vacation. Several calls were left for the owner without an answer back. Finally half way thru the vacation someone was sent out with a can of spray. Not going to cut it. Oh and that smell that continued to get worse everyday.....dead rat behind the dishwasher. I was so so disappointed. Lets just say the money spent did not match the accommodations. I understand things cannot be perfect but this was so far from perfect. If these things did not happen I would have said it was average due to the cleanliness of the house and the beach access which is so rocky that even with water shoes on is hard on the kids' feet. Sorry to be a bummer on what looks so good in pictures but the pictures are deceiving. Not to mention little things like ants dont show up in pictures.
