About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Come and experience all that a Maui dream vacation is all about...

Imagine... relaxing on the patio,gazing at the deep blue ocean with a totally unobstructed 180 DEGREE view of the Islands of Lanai and Molokai in the background. It's all here at our vacation paradise at Hololani. Hololani... in Hawaiian means 'GONE TO HEAVEN' AND that's exactly where you will think you are...

Our lovely, Non-Smoking suite is without a doubt situated in the best location on the entire beach in Kahana. It's a PRIVATE,GROUND FLOOR,CORNER END UNIT, JUST 20 FEET FROM THE OCEAN!! An absolutely PERFECT setting... continually reminding you that you are indeed in Paradise!! On you own oasis...

Very spacious 1100 square foot, two bedroom, two bath, with double sliding doors off the living room to the huge patio. Tropical gardens accent the patio area which delivers to you the most spectacular ocean and outer island view you could ever imagine.

The second bedroom, adjacent to the living room,also opens to the patio facing the ocean. And during the day, it's pocket doors can be opened to the living room, allowing for maximum living room space and views. The two twin Murphy beds can even be easily flipped back into the wall with the flick of one hand.

The extra large master bedroom ,equipped with king pillowtop bed,boasts a huge picture window looking off to the ocean and the Island Molokai. No views of any other buildings,just the deep blue!!

We have just completed a rennovation with gorgeous tile, granite countertops, new carpet, paint, drapes, furniture, etc! It is simply perfect!


There are several great restaurants and shops just a few minute walk from the condo. The Kahana Gateway Center offers just about anything you might need,from an Internet Cafe to fabulous dining options,from a convenience store to several Boutiques selling local arts,crafts,and Hawaiian Island fashions. And the neighboring resort areas of Lahaina, Kaanapali, and Kapalua are just a few miles away. You can even catch the free shuttle to these areas just a couple minute walk from the condo.

Located directly on the Kahana coastline, , all shoreline is at the mercy of Mother Nature and the tidal ebb and flow of the ocean with it's matching wave action. There is beach access less than a 5 minute walk from the condo. Our location makes for a perfect position to take in and experience the beautiful sunsets, turtles, and, during whale season, the most spectacular show of whales breaching right in front of our patio.

We hope that you will get a chance to experience our 'Kahana Oasis.' It truly is a gem you will never forget! With kind aloha, Sherrie

About Sherrie Kaufman

Thank you for visiting my website! Originally from Colorado, I moved to Maui back in 1988. The winters in Colorado were getting colder and longer each year!

I truly found paradise, and feel blessed each day that I am fortunate to call Maui home!

I live on 2 beautiful acres in Haiku, on the north shore of Maui, but always look forward to a vacation in Kahana, when my condo is available.

Sherrie Kaufman purchased this condo in 1999

Why Sherrie Kaufman chose West Maui

For me it has always been about location, and the view. This condo is in a truly unique spot, it is so close to the water, you feel that you can reach out an touch it! The sounds of the ocean are amazing, and can't help but put one in a very peaceful state of mind.

The corner end units are the best units, as they have ocean view from both the livingroom and both bedrooms.And we are on the north corner of the north building, no other buildings adjacent to the north...very quiet location

What makes this condo unique

Other than the fact that is is the closest condo to the ocean, with a corner location, I love the incredible direct ocean and outer island views. You simply cannot get a better vantage point!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our stay was wonderful! The view, the pool, the ocean - all perfect. Your condo is the best. Our comfort and enjoyment were assured by your thoughtful attention to detail. We did not want for anything. Our must enjoyable times were spent relaxing in the condo and on the patio, listening to the waves, watching the beautiful sunsets and wishing we could stay forever.

Nice place. Not really a two bedroom. Smaller than what it appears to be in the photos.

  • 3 of 5

Beach is not accessible from property. Ugly fence and sea bags in view and preventing access to beach. Says it sleeps 6 but blankets and pillows only provided for four. Would only stay there again if it was just me and my husband.

We loved this place. The ground-floor lanai was so beautiful and convenient. Pool was steps away and the 3 gas grills are kept in perfect condition. We had a couple small maintenance items come up and Sherrie was very responsive and remedied them so fast. Really appreciate that, it helped make our stay worry free. Kitchen had everything we need and bed was super-comfy. Beaches are very close, wish we'd discovered Kaanapali beaches a little sooner.

Location and top notch service

  • 5 of 5

A great ground level condo with spectacular views and the ocean sounds! Sherrie has thought of everything to make your time in Maui carefree and comfortable. The condo accommodated our family of 4 and all our gear easily, comfortable beds and the kitchen is well appointed. The location is central to Napili, Kaanapali and Lahaina, and is a convenient 1/2 block walk to coffee, dive shops, necessities and restaurants. The kids loved the ground floor convenience of coming and going out the ocean front door to the pool or walk to the next property to access the beach. We loved the privacy of our ocean view. Thank you Sherrie for your attention to detail and incredibly prompt response! And, a special thanks for mailing my ear buds to me after leaving them behind in the condo!

Peaceful, Comfy, Convenient, Can't wait to go back.

  • 4 of 5

It was with a tinge of sadness that we left this condo and made our way home to the mainland. From the start, Sherrie was a pleasure to work with. She was prompt and sincere in her efforts to help us have a good stay. The condo is joy with its closeness to the water, and views of Lanai and Molokai. The three of us looked forward to coming "home" every day after our island outings. The double opening doors to the lanai gives the condo a grand and spacious introduction to the view. We spent most of our time at the condo out on the lanai, just soaking up the visual wonders of the Au Au Channel and the neighboring islands. The condo itself has everything you need to make you feel at home. There was plenty ocean play gear, and huge beach towels for us to use. We loved that the Murphy Bedroom could be completely closed off from the rest of the rooms. With the ceiling fans going, and the front door open, there was a nice cool breeze throughout the condo. We also opened the master bedroom windows for ventilation at night. There was a slight problem with road noise (hence the four star rating), but it wasn't horrible. After a while we just incorporated it as background noise. There wasn't a beach this time, but we saw turtles every day! Just up the road, we found Napili Bay and good snorkeling, and Napili Market Place has a nice grocery store and a couple of restaurants, including a surprisingly good Thai place. Kahana Gateway has several shops and restaurants (Maui Brewing, and Dollies) and is within walking distance. We look forward to returning. Hopefully, sooner rather than later! Thank you Sherrie! You're the best.

Location Location Location !

  • 3 of 5

They say location is the best part of real estate. Well I'd say this condo has an excellent location. It's easy access from the parking garage and from the front parking lot. Although is can be noisy if you leave the front door open as it's close to the road.

But the best part of the location is the patio opens up to the sounds of the ocean (and sometimes the splash) and it is literally just a few steps from the pool and BBQ's. The BBQ's are very clean. There is no beach access there, but just down the road a bit is a small beach.

The booking online experience was very easy and Sherrie answers email questions in a timely manner. The condo is stocked with the necessary kitchen supplies and the bathrooms have ample towels etc. It was nice that beach towels were provided. The beach chairs were very old and rusty but the did the trick. The snorkeling masks were ok, but they leaked so I would recommend getting your own in town.

There are a few draw backs. The second "bedroom" is actually an extension of the living room and is closed off by makeshift pocket doors. The doors when pulled out were very dirty and the light situation was lacking. Although we didn't need lights very often but it could have been better.

The floor fans were so filthy that we were afraid the turn them on. The ceiling fans worked good. The furniture and decor is very outdated. The many wall mirrors are quite disturbing - but we knew that going in. The couch and chairs are in desperate need of upgrading as they were very worn and not comfortable. If you only spend a little time in the condo I guess it's ok. The bathroom off the second bedroom was ok. The master bedroom is quite large and that bathroom is ok as well.

Overall it was a pleasant stay. It was convenient and we had a nice time.

Owner's Response: I do appreciate this review, but I have a couple comments... as far as the dusty closet doors and foor fans, we schedule deep cleaning 3 times a year, it cannot be done mid December to Mid April, as this is High Season, and I am 100% booked. We had a deep clean scheduled for mid April, but it had to be cancelled. The next opening for deep clean had to be postponed till mid May. And as far as the furnishings, most of the furniture was purchased within the last 3 years. I have not had any complaints of the comfort of the sofa, and the upholstery really is not worn, so I am a little confused by the guest comment of old and worn? This is the 1st less than 4 star review I have had in years, so please be sure to read the other reviews. It is my sincere hope that my guests have the most enjoyable stay, and I do take all comments seriously. thank you so much! aloha, Sherrie

Amazing Condo -- we hated to leave.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Sherrie's Condo From March 19th till April 1st 2016. I just got home and wanted to thank Sherrie for letting us stay in her amazing Condo! The pictures on this website are as shown and the Lanai is literally 10 steps to the Ocean and about 20 steps to the warm heated pool. There is no air conditioning but when you open the doors to the patio and the front door, you get an amazing cross breeze that blows cool air into the Condo. She has also installed some great ceiling fans to get more air flow. We were very comfortable in the condo, it was never too hot or too cool. The modern Kitchen was a good size and had everything we needed! She has two large screen TV's and fast wifi for the days you wanted to get out of the sun. The whole complex was smaller than most places but if your looking to have a true Maui get away, it was low key and not very busy. We had the pool and BBQ (exceptionally clean) to ourselves most nights. I think our favourite thing about the Condo was the view from the Lanai. I sat there for hours looking at the jumping whales and the paddle boarders. Going to bed, you would hear the ocean waves and it was very relaxing.

She also had a lots of beach supplies that you could take to the beach (boogie boards, beach chairs, beach towels, cooler and some snorkelling gear). Her condo was just 5 minutes from Kaanapali beach and theres also a grocery store just up the road from her place.

We had one minor issue with her condo and we emailed her and she responded very quickly with solutions. I truly felt my concerns were heard and that she wanted my Maui experience to be spectacular.

Caring owner: We had a red eye flight leaving at 10:40 pm and normal checkout was 11am. The condo wasn't rented out the following day and she offered to let us use her Condo until our flight out that night. I traveled with my 70 year old mother and we were so appreciative and thankful that she made this generous offer. I felt like I was treated as part of her family and not just a number. If you're looking for a great place to stay and a owner who cares about your experience. I would recommend Sherrie's Condo! Would I come back and stay at this place again? My answer is simply, YES!
