*Please note that the Hololani shoreline will be undergoing a "face-lift" starting April 2018 until approximately October 2018 depending on ocean conditions and construction progress.

The $7million project will encourage beach formation better than using sand bags. Our revetment is a modern design, extending protection well below sea level and backed up by steel sheet piles driven deep into the ground. The work schedule will be Mon. - Fri. 8am - 5pm. All efforts are being made to try and limit any inconvenience but the construction is heavy and sometime may be noisy work. We are offering a wonderful rate of $180/night during this time.

About Kathy Ross

We love Maui and feel so lucky to have a beautiful place here! We just completed a big renovation to make our condo into a true Hawaiian experience with a fresh, bright, beach vibe. This is a very special place for our family and hope to share it with others who will respect our efforts and treat it like their own.

Kathy Ross purchased this condo in 2012

Guestbook comments from the owner

Did we ever love the condo! It was a pleasure going back there after our beach time (we hit the beaches every day except Mother's Day when it rained all day). I loved the is almost identical to mine at home. The underground parking was a real bonus. Very comfortable mattresses. It was fun watching the sea turtles swimming in front of the condo. .

We loved and appreciate the improvements you made, and especially liked the orange wall and the decorations. Good job. We took your advice and had breakfast at the Gazebo one morning. Good choice. Dollie's pizza is good too and just a short walk down the street. We hit a lot of the beaches near the condo and found that was really convenient, although we did make it to Big Beach two times, one on a day they had huge waves coming in, so didn't get to snorkel or swim that day, but it was fun to see the waves.

We took good care of your place, so not to worry. We hope we can stay there again.

View is amazing!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time. Disappointed about the beach access, but now know the beach has been eroding for 3 years. And we were able to access down the road. We were so happy to have beach chairs, cooler and beach towels. We felt at home. Highly recommend!!!

Oceanfront, but no useable beachfront

  • 3 of 5

There is so much right with this vacation home. Read all prior reviews and you will read correctly that it is comfortable, reasonably modernly updated, well kept, and in a terrific location. The excellent appliances, including W/D, dishwasher and fridge/stove were much appreciated.

However, if you are looking for beachfront, in addition to the lovely oceanfront view, you must know in advance that the beachfront along the length of the property is fenced off, and the beach is covered with massive sandbags in early preparatory stages of trying to rejuvenate the beach. So you cannot swim or beach stroll at the property. There is ocean access at the north end of the property, but it is small and unappealing, with a drainage pipe also at the site.

I feel strongly that the property description should be altered to reflect the current reality, as it does state "beachfront". While this won't be a major issue for some, it will be for others, and turned a 4-5 star rating into this.

Kathy, the condo owner, was very easy to work with in the booking process, and her on-island associates were very quick to respond to a request for new fluorescent bulbs in the kitchen. I am certain other issues would be equally well handled.

Excellent location in complex. Well appointed.

  • 4 of 5

Kahana beaches have been eroding at about 1 ft per year over the last 50 years. The county of Maui and the SMA have been dragging their feet about protecting the shoreline, so as a last ditch effort the Condos along here have been allowed to put "emergency sea bags " on the shoreline. This means the sea is crashing right up to the edge of the pool and there is no beach access. Otherwise, the unit is most conveniently located on the ground floor with great sunset views and pool access.

Great pool and BBQ area.

  • 2 of 5

Our family of 5 had a wonderful stay here during the first week of July. The property appeared clean and fairly well maintained but looked somewhat old and dated.

Property description did not mention that the master’s bedroom did not have a window that you can look out of. It only has 5 small windows (about 8” X 12”) that you can slide open. In our case, we could only open 2 since 1 had a large hole in the screen, and 2 had no screen at all. So with no AC, a fair amount of ventilation is needed, and the 2 remaining windows along with a ceiling fan and free standing fan were inadequate. The sliding door and both screens out to the lanai have some damage and prevents them from being shut enough to keep bugs and mosquitos out.

The kitchen was nice and functional but was a little tight. The pool and barbecue are excellent and were really enjoyed here, along with the terrific sunset views!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to submit your views Paul... it is very important in order to manage and maintain our condo to the highest standards of comfort and cleanliness. If I am notified by a guest of an issues during their stay I do everything possible to resolve it as soon as possible. Unfortunately, I was not made aware of the issues you noted regarding the window screens or the lanai sliding door; otherwise, it could have been repaired and serviced right away. I hope you enjoyed the breathtaking views as soon as you walk through the front door of the unit as well as the direct oceanfront views from the guest bedroom. The master bedroom is a cozy spot tucked back from the lanai and not misrepresented in the listing description. Those staying in the guest bedroom can take advantage of the lanai doors to the patio and beautiful pool and ocean views. Most of our guests enjoy having the lanai doors open to allow the ocean breeze to naturally cool off the unit. I'm sorry that you did not feel that the fans were adequate, this is a personal preference that our guests choose. I truly hope you and your family experienced the amazing aloha spirit while on the island. I believe our rate of $200/night is great value for oceanfront property on Maui!

Very nice unit

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy here for the week. It's in a great spot close to all our favorite places. Easy in and out. The unit was clean and had way more stuff than we could ever need on vacation. The patio in the morning was my favorite place and the sunset was amazing too. We would definitely stay here again. Others had complained about privacy with the location. It's such a small condo association unless you went to a house I don't know how you do it better. It really was not an issue for us and you don't have to leave the front door open if it bothers you but since we used the patio in the back so much it really wasn't an issue.

Thank you for another great stay on Maui

The condo was as promised!

  • 5 of 5

The west-facing view was spectacular, the ocean waves were heard at all times, and it was located in close proximity to shopping, coffee shops and beaches. We were especially grateful for the beach accessories as well as stocked kitchen and outdoor grill. A very safe, uncrowded, clean area of Maui. It is about 20 minutes from the town center of Old Lahaina, but the drive is pleasant with idea of the ocean. Kathy even provided a narrative of local venues to guide our daily activities and dining plans. No air conditioning so the master bedroom was very warm at night, though ceiling fan helped. Highly recommend this property!
