About Bill and Dondi's Royal Kahana Condo

We have been in the hospitality and tourist industry for almost 30 years, having owned and operated two hotels in the tourist area and wine country of San Luis Obispo, California since 1983, which has provided us the background to offer our guests one of the finest lodging experiences on Maui. Our family began vacationing at the Royal Kahana Resort over 20 years ago and loved it so much that we became owners there in 1998. What attracted us to this particular area was the peaceful setting, beautiful beach, water sports including snorkeling and surfing, and the convenience of the many restaurants and shopping areas close by. Our children especially loved the beach and the many activities of the resort. We were particularly attracted to this unit since it was one of the only condos we found on the island with a wraparound balcony and floor to ceiling windows providing the best of oceanfront views anywhere. It was also larger than average which was great for our entire family.

Bill and Dondi's Royal Kahana Condo purchased this condo in 2004

Why Bill and Dondi's Royal Kahana Condo chose West Maui

In coming to Maui since 1984 for our vacations, our family had the opportunity of staying in many of the resorts in West Maui. We ultimately found all of the important features that our family wanted at Royal Kahana Resort. These included the 8th floor direct oceanfront corner location, the resort is child friendly, the peaceful, private atmosphere, and one of the most unbelievable views of the ocean and islands of Lanai and Molokai from wrap around floor to ceiling windows. It also has one of the largest lanais that we found on Maui that wraps around the corner, and is located close to shops and restaurants, many within walking distance. In reflecting the ambience of Maui, we recently remodeled in a relaxing Tommy Bahama style including high speed internet and LCD TVs in both bedrooms.

What makes this condo unique

Our direct oceanfront views are truly stunning. Being in a corner location allows for 270 degree views of the Pacific with Lanai to the south and Molokai to the north. The 8th floor location allows for wonderful whale watching and beautiful sunsets whether you are on the balcony or sitting in the living room from the floor to ceiling windows. The resort amenities are for all ages, from the gym and tennis courts, to the swimming pool and ping pong. The resort is uncrowded, child friendly, and offers great water sports, even surfing. The location of the resort is within walking distance to many restaurants and shopping, and is a short drive away to many more as well as world class snorkeling and golfing.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Views are stunning, but beach has major erosion issues

  • 5 of 5

Morning coffee on the lanai while watching turtles down below, evening wine on the lanai while watching turtles and the sunset! Beds are comfortable and the kitchen is well stocked. Great location on the island for activities and restaurants. Never even turned tvs on! Beach supplies were wonderful to have, however beach chairs need to be replaced. 2 were unusable and the other 2 were close to that. Pool area was nice and well maintained with shaved ice right there! The erosion on the beach is bad, so sandbags are all along what's left of the beach, but the turtles don't seem to mind and from the 8th floor, you don't see it as much. I hope they figure a way to get it under control. It was the views that sold us on this place, and it did not disappoint in the least. We spent more time outside than inside, so can't even say if the couch was comfortable! We loved our stay here and hate to leave.

Owner's Response: Aloha Karen, Thank you for your feedback from your vacation to beautiful Maui and the Royal Kahana Resort! We appreciate your comments about our condo. We are sorry you found beach chairs not purchased by us but were left by previous guests and not up to our standards. We replenish our beach supplies twice a year but cannot control if a guest doesn’t return them to our condo and replaces them with substandard ones. We are happy that our beach is recovering well from the erosion of 2 years ago. However, the sandbags that were placed will remain until the County of Maui grants us a permit to replace them with alternative methods to enhance our beach. Fortunately, the bags do not impede the healing of our beach with returning sand nor do they affect the incredibly spectacular oceanfront, corner views! We hope you can return to Maui soon!

Oceanfront Property-Great Location-Fabulous Views

  • 5 of 5

To start this review, I want to mention that Bill and Dondi were great to work with. They were very timely with their communication and they provided in detail everything we needed to know about our stay at the condo. The condo was clean and very spacious. We enjoyed spending time on the lanai while having coffee, relaxing and whale watching. The evening sunsets were beautiful. The location of the condo along with the amazing views made this a vacation of a lifetime. Thank you Bill and Dondi.

Amazing place and great location for a relaxing vacation.

  • 5 of 5

We just returned home after a week's stay at this property. Everything about it was absolutely stunning. The views are incredible and the location was perfect for our needs..... quiet, yet within easy walking distance to some restaurants and a small store, and a short drive to many other restaurants, beaches and attractions.

The property is modern, very well maintained, and extremely clean. The bed was extremely comfortable... the furnishings and kitchen equipment all new and fully functional.

We turned off the AC as soon as we arrived and opened the doors and bedroom window so we could fully enjoy the breezes and sounds of the waves.. great to fall asleep to! Several turtles in the water below greeted us every morning as we had breakfast on the lanai.

A one word summary... Fantastic!

Owner's Response: Aloha Robert, Thank you for your feedback from your recent vacation on Maui. We are very pleased that you enjoyed your vacation at the Royal Kahana. That is great that you came at a time to enjoy the whale migration which is a wonder to enjoy from our wraparound lanai as well as experience the many turtles that swim right in front of the resort. We hope that you are able to return in the future and be our guests again!

Stunning Views - Oceanfront

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed this oceanfront property. The room was wonderful with so many windows and a lanai great for whale and turtle watching. The pool was nice and we definitely enjoyed our time there. Our only disappointment was that the property did not have access to the beach due to erosion. It would have been nice if the property management allowed for access to the beach behind the pool house. Also, would have been nice to have been able to see the ocean while at the pool instead of sand bags and a painted wood wall. We understand the erosion issue, however, we were able to see a good solution by allowing a path to the beach from behind the bath house. Having a sign stating to stay off the sand bags definitely did not stop many of the people staying there. If it wasn't for the lack of consideration from the property management for access to the beach (other than their suggestion of walking on the street for at least 500 yards) this would have received a five star. Our specific room and the owner we worked with was wonderful. The condo unit was a five.

Owner's Response: Aloha and thank you for your stay at our beautiful resort. We appreciate the 5 star rating of our condo. We have great news on the beach! Within a few days after you departed, the resort opened up beach access to the restored beach on the south end behind the pool house as you described! A photo of the beach and resort taken in the first week of April, right after you left, is posted in our VRBO listing. It shows how quickly the beach can restore itself especially after the winter storms. We hope you can return and enjoy our resort again!

Gorgeous View, Nice Location, Aging Property

  • 4 of 5

View: 10/10. Floor-to-ceiling windows and a huge balcony make it easy to enjoy the views of the sunset, breaching whales, and the islands of Lanai and Molokai.

Unit Amenities: 8/10. The unit was adequately comfortable and adequately stocked. The mattresses on the beds were firm, which is the way we like them. It was nice to have the washer, dryer, and dishwasher.

Property Amenities: 6/10. The building itself is pretty dated, and much of the property is either under construction or in a state of disrepair. The property also lacks some pretty basic amenities, such as a business center at which you can print your boarding passes for your return trip home. Also, the winter surf had eroded away the beach and rendered the lawn unusable -- which we'd anticipated at the time that we booked the trip and wasn't a huge deal, but which makes the property less desirable than the neighboring properties. On the bright side, the pool was *heated* to a very comfortable temperature, which we loved. Also, for a large complex, it was very quiet - which was great, as the 2nd bedroom abuts a walkway, which could've been really bad.

Location: 8/10. We'd never stayed that far north on the island, and we really liked it. It was a close drive to the gorgeous Kaanapali beaches and Lahaina to the south, and to the gorgeous Napili and Kapalua beaches to the north. It's also a very short walk to a fairly well stocked mini market, Maui Brewing Company, and a few other restaurants.

Overall Value: 7/10. Waterfront units on Maui are very expensive, particularly during high season. With the various fees and taxes, we paid about $530/night for this place for a high-season stay in February. That's probably within the market range for a 2-BR waterfront rental during high season -- and we're at peace with that decision and have no regrets. Even so, having been there, it's unlikely that we'd pay that much to stay there again.
