You can also see the island of Molokai from the inside of the condo as will from the lanai, as you can see from the photos and the video. One of the best studio views compared to all the other studios at the Royal Kahana, yes ours is the best. All the other studies condo's on the lower floors do not have as good as a view as our condo dose. If you are going to rent a studio condo at the Royal Kahana this is the one you want.

The Royal Kahana has a heated pool with lounge chairs around it and lounge chairs on the grass around the front of the resort right next to the shoreline for sunbathing or watching the beautiful sunsets. Also you can use the Exercise Room the Ping-Pong Table and the Shuffleboard Court. We also have five Barbeque Grills on property for you to use. Across the street and a very short walk are restaurants, bars, some mini markets and a bank. You will get free Wi-Fi, free parking, and there are no resort fees at the Royal Kahana.

About Mike

Aloha and thank you for visiting our condo listing. We are two brothers who live in Ventura, California. We like to get away from it all from time to time and Maui is where we go. We have owned unit 1204 at the Royal Kahana Resort since 2006. 1204 is the best studio condo compared to all the other studios based on it's location in the building and the view from the unit. There are other studios that have a similar view as 1204 but where the unit is located in the building 1204 has the best view. If you've stayed in one of the other studios at the Royal Kahana before, now it's time to stay in the best and Studio 1204 is it. Why is 1204 the best? It's the view and the recent remodeled interior of the unit. Why did we pick the Royal Kahana Resort? Because of its location on Maui and the amenities it offers. Also the home owners association is constantly remodeling and updated the building. The homeowners association is always repairing and replacing key infrastructure items so that the resort is never run down. We welcome you to stay in our condo and relax in our little piece of paradise.

Mike purchased this condo in 2006

Why Mike chose Kahana (Maui)

The Royal Kahana Resort is located on the beautiful West Coast of Maui in the town of Kahana and is surrounded by Maui's spectacular natural beauty and is located right on the Kahana Bay. The Royal Kahana Resort has a lot to offer you. Swim in the heated pool and sun yourself on the spacious pool side deck or on the lawn near the ocean. There are gas-fired barbecue grills just outside the pool area. There is a fitness room, ping-pong and shuffleboard. No resort fee's. Free wifi. Free parking, you can park underground or at ground level. The Royal Kahana Resort has 3 elevators. A Concierge Desk is in the lobby for booking your activities. Just a 5-minute drive to Kaanapali or Kapalua, and just a 10-minute drive (if that) to the historic whaling town of Lahaina. Lahaina, Kaanapali and Kapalua have some of the best shopping, restaurants and don’t forget the Golf on the island of Maui.

What makes this condo unique

Besides the view from our unit, the amenities at the Royal Kahana and the location on the West side of Maui we have The Kahana Gateway Shopping Center right across the street. No need to get in to your car and drive to Lahaina or Kaanapali for shopping, the super market or for a nice dinner, just walk across the street up in to the Kahana Gateway Shopping Center, where you can have a bite to eat at Maui Brewing Company American & Island Style Cuisine Microbrewery or for a quick bite there's a Mc Donald’s. Get a gourmet cup of Coffee from Hawaiian Village Coffee House. There is a Whalers General Store and Gas Station, Smile Nail Salon & Massage, Maui Dive Shop to rent you'r snorkel equipment, a Bank of Hawaii with an ATM. We are fortunate to have the Kahana Gateway Shopping Center right across the street. That's why I think the town of Kahana and the Royal Kahana Resort is one of the best places to stay on Maui. Do yourself a favor don’t get caught up in the crowds and the high prices in Lahaina, Kaanapali and Kapalua come stay at the Royal Kahana Resort in the town of Kahana and take a deep breath slow down and relax in the Hawaiian life style.

Our second stay was as wonderful as the first!

  • 5 of 5

We first stayed at this condo in May, 2014, and loved it. During our second visit to Maui, it was unavailable so we rented another unit in the same building which was very nice but we preferred #1204. So, when planning our third trip to Maui, we planned ahead and were able to rent our preferred unit. Yay! The owner, Mike, is incredibly easy to work with as he is very communicative and helpful with any questions or concerns you may have. The unit is clean and spacious. The bed is comfortable and only needs some newer, firmer pillows. We were able to see whales from the lanai each day and the binoculars that are supplied are great. The kitchen is convenient so you don't have to eat all of your meals out. The beach chairs are of great quality and comfortable for those of us who are getting older! The bathroom has a large counter for your personal items and the shower is beautiful. We love having the washer and dryer available and appreciate the supply of detergent and dryer sheets. I can't say enough good things about this condo! We look forward to returning next time we make a trip to Maui!

Incredible view!

  • 5 of 5

Clean and roomy condo with great amenities. Morning coffee out on the lanai with the incredible view of the ocean and Molokai in the distance was a great start of our mornings.

Excellent customer service from the start from Mike as he answered all our questions and offered great suggestions for our visit.

Great location with surfing/snorkeling supply shops, pubs and restaurants close by. Dollie's across the street is a great local pub with a fun atmosphere and great pizza.

I look forward to returning here again and would highly recommend this little jem to friends and family.

Can I come back now?

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed in this condo for one week and it was perfect. The view from the lanai is amazing. We had breakfast on there every single morning, which was the perfect way to start our day.

We also enjoyed the little beach in front of the condo. It was the perfect spot to go to sit on the sand and watch the sunset. Also, the outdoor shower right by the pool house made it super easy to clean off before heading back into the condo.

The unit itself, from the bathroom, to the kitchen, bedroom, etc. had everything we could've needed and more for the whole week. I definitely recommend booking this condo.

Mike was also very attentive and made sure we were comfortable during our stay. Couldn't of asked for a better owner or room! Thanks again Mike!

Awesome Maui Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We spent 10 incredible days in Maui with this condo as our homebase. The condo was fantastic. Clean, bright and well set up. Everything you need for the beach is there for you.

Being situated on the 12th floor allowed us to enjoy the views of the early morning sun streaming through the clouds above Molokai from the lanai as we sipped our morning coffee. In the evening we would see the island lit up by the setting sun as we sipped our wine and wound down from another day in paradise. We fell asleep every night to the sounds of the waves on the beach below.

The fully outfitted kitchen was wonderful and allowed us to enjoy our own cooked meals. But the location is very near many wonderful restaurants in the area.

The building itself was clean and well kept. There was always someone at the concierge desk if we were looking for something.

Mike is a great owner and always goes the extra mile. He answered all our questions and dealt with our concerns. We would highly recommend anyone interested in visiting the Kahana region of Maui to consider staying here. You will not be disappointed.

Our Maui Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

Love this place! We were here three years ago and liked it so much we came back! The view is just so wonderful. The balcony is a breathtaking view! We love the location. Close to all the good restaurants and shopping and the Golf Course is right there also. Mike is so easy to talk to. All the amenities are right there. Very clean and nice. Just perfect for our Maui getaway. We just celebrated our 20th anniversary there and my birthday. Just a perfect place for it.

Perfect Stay!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I celebrated our 25th anniversary for 8 days in the condo. It was perfect. If you want to be with all the crowds, this is definitely the wrong place. The condo was peaceful, well appointed, well stocked and a great jumping off point to the local attractions. Mike was available before, during and after our stay and was a pleasure to work with. Views were awesome. Napili Beach 5 minutes north is awesome, but get there early. Would stay here again in a heartbeat and I recommend it to anyone looking for a restful stay and good value. Thanks Mike for everything.
