Overview

About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath Ground Floor Ocean Front Condo. Steps to water!

This incredible 1 bedroom, newly renovated condo comes completely outfitted with every item you need to enjoy paradise! We have boogie boards, coolers, chairs and beach towels ready for your stay. The comfortable (owner-tested) pull out couch creates extra room. WIFI and free long distance within the US are provided.

The complex is quiet with only 3, 4 story buildings so no fighting for lounge chairs! Enjoy a swim in the beach located directly to the right of the complex, or relax by the warm solar heated pool.

Awesome views for Molokai and Lanai can be enjoyed from your own private lanai. Enjoy whale watching at Kahana Reef resort from April to December. They cross right in front of the complex as they pass through the channel! And don’t forget to take a walk on the sea wall at Kahana to see the turtles that come to feed there inside the reef. At Kahana you have a front row seat to everything! Being in a ground floor unit allows for quick access to the sea wall so that you don’t miss a thing!

Spend the days exploring some of the best beaches and golfing in Maui from this centrally located condo. There are also lots of restaurants close by within walking distance if you don’t want to use a few of the BBQs located on the property. Historic Lahaina Town and Whalers Village Shopping Center are also just minutes away by car.

**we employ an on-island management company for your peace of mind to address any concerns you may have during your stay. I am also always available to help when I can via email or phone. I understand that flight times are not always the best leaving Maui, while we love the extra time at the beach, it's tough with no where to freshen up prior to your flight! I will do my best to accommodate your requests for late check-outs if I have no one checking in on the day you are checking out. Please just ask!

About Nicole & Steve

Steve and I (Nicole) are from Calgary, Alberta. We decided to buy a condo in Maui as we have been several times and both love everything Maui has to offer, especially the weather! We find coming to Maui incredibly relaxing and enjoyable. We hope to retire here one day but in the meantime will just continue to enjoy it when we get the chance! We wanted to give other people a chance to get to know Maui like we have and decided to rent out our condo. Out of all the places we have traveled, Maui stays our favorite. We hope you enjoy it and everything is what you hoped for!

Nicole & Steve purchased this condo in 2013

Why Nicole & Steve chose Lahaina

Any time we have been to Maui, we have stayed in this area and so we thought this was the best place for us to buy a condo. It has access to all of the amenities we could want, it's close to fabulous beaches and it has a small town vibe which we love. Steve and I love having a ground floor unit anywhere we go. We like the option of opening up the door and walking to the BBQ area, or just heading out to sit on the beach. There are no stairs to climb with groceries or all of the necessities you need to go to the beach! So when we found this unit at Kahana Reef, we jumped at it.

What makes this condo unique

We bought this unit sight unseen from pictures and we were not disappointed when we saw it in person! It is even better than we expected. It was beautifully taken care of and had everything we could need. We love the view we have from our lanai door, how close the ocean is that we can listen to it falling asleep. The fact that the complex is smaller and quieter than most complexes was also a main draw for us. The beaches that are close by are some of the best, and you can find really quiet ones. We spend the majority of our time at the beach so this was a perfect choice.

Awesome property!

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed at multiple ground floor units at the Kahana Reef over the past 10 years, and Unit 114 was the best by far. Loved the surprise welcome gifts, and all the amenities for the beach (towels, coolers, chairs, umbrellas). First time we've ever done carry on luggage, and it was a snap to do one load of wash onsite during the week stay. Also appreciated the fans throughout the unit. The best sunsets ever, and the complex is always quiet. Would highly recommend.

Beautiful Views, Prime Location!

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I just returned from our stay and we fully enjoyed ourselves! Quiet location, friendly neighbors, well-maintained property, I could not have been more pleased with our choice. Each morning we walked to the Hawaiian Village coffee shop (5 min) to grab a scone a freshly brewed cup! As you walk back you hear the crash of waves against the sea wall.

Each morning you capture a full view of Molokai & Lanai as the clouds shift, with the occasional rainbow (just in case that wasn't enough!). Be sure to peak over the sea wall and catch a glimpse of massive sea turtles that visit each day!

We spent each day hitting a local beach, but always coming back mid-day for an afternoon cocktail and a quiet lounge chair steps from the water to do some reading our take a nap. This is paradise!!! HIGHLY Recommend Napili Beach, about 7 minutes up the road, absolutely beautiful and way less crowded then Ka'anapali Beach. Beach Chairs & Towels included!

Looking to rent long boards, SUP and snorkel gear? Check out 808 boards in Napili, steps from the ocean. We went paddle boarding there a few mornings and it was absolutely beautiful!

IF YOU DO ONE THING during your stay in Maui - TRILOGY CRUISE TO LANAI.

There are no words!! Incredible journey. My review will not do it justice, look into it, well worth the investment.

Lahaina Town is about 10 minutes up the road, great for shopping & dining. Although we are Vegan and struggled to find a consistent place to eat. Then we found CHOICE HEALTH BAR. OMG! Fresh Smoothies & Acai bowls every morning. Super healthy & refreshing, will keep you recharged for your daily adventures :)

We did have a small issue with a few unwanted guests but owner was very responsive and did everything she could to ensure we were happy & enjoying our stay. Thank you Nicole!

The slider door was really difficult to open, may need to be fixed, but certainly not a deal breaker! BEST VALUE ON THE ISLAND! Perfect for the couple that wants to be close to the action but not IN the action :) Laundry room opens at 8am, we did our wash before coming home, bonus!

We cannot wait to come back! SO Sad to leave! You cannot go wrong with this property.

Clean & Perfect! Thank you again, enjoy your stay!

nice and quite!

  • 4 of 5

the place was very lovely and nice and quiet, very close to the ocean with a nice view, didn't use the pool but it looked nice. very close to many nice restaurants. was a crazy little place and very well stocked with what we needed. we cooked fish that we caught on our fishing charter. the only reason i didn't give this a five star is we were a little disappointed in the "beach area" there are plenty of beaches very close to visit and we did, but most importantly there is no air conditioning in the condo, shame on me for not asking, and i did get used to it, my new bride loved it. i am just not much for sleeping when its hot! all in all a great place.

Breathtaking ocean front views!

  • 5 of 5

We had a delightful week at Kahana Reef just sitting on the lanai and taking in the wonderful view. The ground floor condo provided an unobstructed view of Molokai and even though we were too late for whales, there were plenty of turtles who swam by the sea wall. The condo was nicely equipped with an updated kitchen and supplied with beach equipment such as chairs, coolers, etc. Mahalo to Nicole and Steve for sharing their beautiful condo and also for the thoughtful wine and chocolates!

Wonderful Unit On the Water

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful little unit with a lanai just steps from the water. We enjoyed the sounds of the waves lapping against the sea wall and had a front row seat to the sunsets off of Moloka'i. Open the front door and the lanai door and enjoy the tropical breeze.

Direct Ocean Front
Car: recommended

This condo has been recently renovated, is very clean and the pride of ownership is evident. It is a direct ocean front condo in a small complex. BBQ's are available a few steps from your Lanai. Enjoy a glass of wine and the waves from your lanai while you cook your dinner. It's one bedroom with a queen size bed, and has a pull out bed. This condo comfortably sleeps 4, and we have tested the pull out couch personally and found it very comfortable.

There are so many amenities close by to choose from! From the shops of Kanapali, the town of Lahaina or the beaches of Napili, the options are endless!

Kanapali boasts high end stores, a fabulous golf course and ocean front restaurants. Everything for every price range! Try Leilani's for a happy hour margarita cool down and daily food specials for those of you on a budget, or a fancy dinner at the Sheraton Black Rock Steak & Seafood restaurant. Luau's are also a great attraction. The Hyatt's Drum's of the Pacific Luau is a favorite! Make sure to book early! All of this just a 10 minute drive away.

Head to Lahaina for some outlet shopping, a tour of the Banyan tree and enjoy the roof top patio at Fleetwood's on Front Street or ocean front dining at Bubba Gump's or Jimmy Buffets, to name a few.

Who can forget to mention the snorkeling! So many tours to take, but almost right out your front door there is the best bay to see turtles. Some of the biggest turtles you will ever see snooze in this bay (if turtles snooze)!

For those of you brave enough, the small single lane road to Hanna is a beautiful drive with pit-stops at waterfalls and beautiful scenery a long the way. But beware it takes time, so if you are not up for a day in the car, this might not be for you.

Or just stay put, sit oceanfront at your condo and hope to see some whales go by!
