About Chris Weininger

We grew up in Germany. After studying Tourism at the University of Applied Science in Munich, we moved to Hawaii and instantly fell in love with it. We have lived on Maui for 18 years now and can not think of any place we'd rather live.

Chris Weininger purchased this condo in 2013

Why Chris Weininger chose West Maui

We bought our own apartment at Kahana Villa in 2001 and like it so much here that we bought this second unit to share with our friends & family AND YOU!

Kahana Villas is a mix of owners, long term tenants and vacation rental units, combining the amenities of a resort (beach, pool, hot tub, tennis court) with the advantages and feel of having your own home rather than just a hotel room.

What makes this condo unique

Enjoy spectacular Ocean Views at a Garden View rate! The extra bedroom in the loft makes this ideal for 3 or 4 guests, but it's so affordably priced that it's a also great option for just two guests.

Great Property!

My wife and I loved our 11 nights at this property. Everything you need for a great vacation. Amazing views. Great beach across the road. Clean and comfortable. Great communication with the owner Chris. Would recommend to anyone.

Owner's Response: I am so glad you enjoyed your stay at Kahana Villa so much. The views of the ocean, the waves, the sunsets, the surfers and in winter even the whales really are surprisingly good considering we are not right on the water, isn't it? Glad you liked the apartment and the beach so much. I will pass your compliment on to the cleaning company, too. They really do a great job. I hope you can return soon!

Beautiful condo with a wonderfully reponsive owner

  • 5 of 5

We rented this condo for two weeks, and they were absolutely wonderful! Chris was very responsive to all of our questions and gave wonderful recommendations. The condo was very well equipped with many amenities including beach equipment (towels, umbrella, chairs, boogie boards, coolers and snorkel equipment) a full kitchen (BONUS!!) with limited spices but plenty of cookware and dishes. The beds were very comfortable, plenty of bath towels for our stay. There were also some very nice considerations such as facial tissues, etc. The condo was very spacious with good ventilation/ceiling fans and a tidy balcony with a great view. The unit was very clean and well kept.

Parking was a breeze and there was an elevator to the 6th floor that made for easy check in and check out (Who wants to lug all of that luggage up and down stairs!).

The location was very nice with easy access to markets, restaurants, and the beach.

We will definitely be visiting this wonderful spot again!

Clean, inviting and well-stocked

  • 5 of 5

My two twenty-something sons, my husband and myself were very pleased with the condo and the grounds. We loved the view, enjoyed the scuba gear and beach supplies provided, and slept so well on the beds - especially the king sized, super comfortable bed my husband and I slept on. When there was an issue, Chris handled it immmediately, and the hot tub and pool were an added bonus.

Owner's Response: I am very glad you enjoyed your stay in our unit at Kahana Villa so much. I am not surprised you found the bed to be so comfortable, it is a "Heavenly Bed" like the Westin Hotels use. Also good to hear that you enjoyed the view, the grounds, the snorkeling, the pool and the hot tub. Just to clarify for future guests: We provide some snorkel equipment, but not actual scuba gear. However, there is a Maui Dive Shop very close where you can rent scuba gear and get certified to scuba dive. Maybe you should come back soon to explore the underwater world around Maui even more. A hui hou!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the 5* review, I am very glad you enjoyed my service and your stay in our unit so much. I agree that the location is great, I love it that we can walk to the beach, to some really nice restaurants, a few stores and last but not least: to the crew pub from the Maui Brewing Company;-) We hope you can return soon!

A vacation of a lifetime!!

  • 5 of 5

I was so impressed with so may things about this stay. The view was simply breath taking. Every morning waking up to enjoy breakfast in a spacious kitchen was a dream come true. This unit was not only clean but organized and it offered so many qualities that I just loved. The king size int eh bedroom was insanely comfortable! At first i was a tad bit nervous about having no air conditioner in the unit, but it the breeze that comes through kept us all comfortable the whole time. The beach is right across the street! We walked over every morning and we even laid right on the beach with a sea turtle!

Most of all the communication between Weininger was superb. I had emailed him with a question about the internet service and he emailed back almost instantaneously. Not only am i pleased with the whole experience, but a trip for 2018 is already being planned to go back!

Thank you so much for making this such an amazing vacation of a lifetime. I have already told so many people about this particular condo we stayed at! I recommend it in the highest regards.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your very nice review. I am glad you enjoyed our apartment so much. I agree that the view is amazing and the location ideal. So many things to do within walking distance and Lahaina, Kaanapali or Kapalua are just a short drive. We have the same "breath taking view" and the same "insanely comfortable" 'Heavenly Bed' in our unit. Thanks for reminding us how lucky we are! I hope you (and your friends) can visit us again soon!

Würde sie sofort wieder mieten!

Owner's Response: Ich freue mich, dass Ihnen die Wohnung auch nach dem holprigen Start so gut gefallen hat, dass Sie wieder kommen wollen. Ich möchte mich noch mal entschuldigen, dass Sie bei der Ankunft warten mussten, bis der Schlüssel vorbei gebracht wurde. Normalerweise läuft der Check In dank der Lock Box ja jederzeit vollkommen unproblematisch. Ich würde mich freuen, Sie mal wieder auf Maui willkommen heissen zu dürfen.

Maui has been voted as the best island in the world for the 19th year in a row by the Conde Nast Traveler magazine. We agree. A tropical paradise combined with the conveniences of it being part of the USA, it's the best of both worlds!

We like the WEST SIDE of Maui the best, because it combines good weather, nice beaches, the proximity to the really cute town of Lahaina and the best views of the sunset.

KAHANA is about 10 minutes north of Lahaina and it is a little less touristy, but offers all the conveniences like a beach, shops, restaurants, bars, a bank etc. within easy walking distance.
