About the property

This very comfortable condo leaves lots of room to stretch out and enjoy your Maui paradise. Our decor has a relaxed 'Island feel'. There are two king size master bedrooms and a fully equipped kitchen. Included amenities are free high speed WiFi, HD TV and DVD in the living room, and cable TV in both bedrooms. There are TWO queen sofabeds in the living room with built-in blow-up air mattresses. We leave some beach gear in the closets for you to enjoy.

A great location, our unit is 25 feet from the beach on the 5th floor. The expansive ocean view captures both Lanai and Moloka'i islands. This is a huge oceanfront unit with 1736 square feet. The condo has two lanai's to enjoy the sounds of the ocean, the warm Kahana days and nights, and the beautiful sunsets and views. See turtles, and see whales spouting right from the condo!

Only the corner units of the resort have view windows in every room and bathroom, with every window looking out on ocean, beach, sand and palm trees. Both Master Bedrooms have grand views and open to separate lanai's. The front Master opens up to the front lanai with a gorgeous view. The second Master Bedroom has a full wall window looking out to Molokai and opens up to a second lanai, both with great views (only the corner units at this resort have windows in the second Master bedroom and second bath, and have a second Lanai). Soak in the front Master bath's tub or enjoy the second Master bath's shower- both while looking out over the ocean.

Our beach is much less crowded than so many of the other west side beaches. There's lots of sand and sun only a few feet from our building. On the south side of the beach there is an area where we daily see and swim with turtles. We often see turtles on the beach here.

The resort is well maintained and has beautiful grounds. It has an on-site restaurant and a bar overlooking the pool and hot tub, and looking out to the beach. There are also lighted tennis courts and basketball court, putting green and on-site beach rentals. Multiple BBQ grills are on the grounds.

It's a one to three block walk to local shopping, groceries and restaurants including the Maui Brewing Company. Kaanapali, Lahaina and Kapalua are less than 10 minutes away.

There is no air conditioning, but we rarely feel a need for it. The trade winds collect and blow through the louvers, creating a breeze through the entire unit and out the Lanai doors. Adjust the louvered vents at the entrance to control the breeze. Sun mainly comes in through the living room windows and front Lanai in late afternoon. We lower the blinds in late afternoon until about an hour before sunset to keep it cooler. The main Lanai has a similar transparent blind that can be lowered in late afternoon. The LR and both bedrooms have ceiling fans. Kahana is 3 to 5 degrees cooler than Lahaina, especially in summer, making Kahana temperatures almost ideal. In Kahana the daily high temp occurs in mid afternoon and is highest in summer (low- mid 80's), and coolest in winter (high 70's to 80). Nights are around 70 in summer and low to mid 60's in winter.

The location was superb. The staff is to be commended for their friendliness. All the accommodations, value and provisions were much appreciated. Air conditioning would have been nice but it made us want to float the beach and we did, for hours!

Wonderful -- highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5

Just go ahead - you will be very happy with your stay here!

Key points: well appointed, fully furnished and equipped, outstanding views from both the main lanai and 2nd BR lanai. Everything you need is here and the view -- gorgeous!

Cons: none with this rental whatsoever. One in our party noted the building itself seems a bit dated. There is an elevator though it is very slowwww. The restaurant/bar by the pool is very nice to have on-site -- with a happy hour, too -- just don't expect to be impressed by the food. Overall, the negatives are nitpicky -- this is a great place to vacation.


Check-in was prompt, friendly and helpful. The unit is, well, great. While the layout for the MBR is a bit unique (sliding wooden doors open it up to the main living area), we knew this going in and it really wasn't an issue. Concierge's are on-site are helpful. No timeshare sales pressure.

The unit was very clean, nicely decorated/provisioned, beds are very comfortable and the view (obviously) is terrific. The owners make available their beach items like chairs, umbrellas, towels -- very helpful. The layout is, as mentioned, a bit unique but very functional; the 2 BRs are not butted up to one another so that extra privacy is nice.

Overall we couldn't be more satisfied with this rental -- absolutely wonderful. We would absolutely stay here again.

Context: we are two couples connected by sisters; both were here celebrating our 30th anniversaries. (So we are older; quiet and comfort are higher on our list than constant entertainment. We are COMPLETELY satisfied!!).

Thank you to the owners, to Sullivan Properties, and the people we met along the way. :-)

Amazing! A home away from home with Ocean Views!!!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough about how much we loved this condo. It is exactly as described and more. From the light-switch covers to all of the wonderful kitchen immunities, this condo is a home away from home. The views are amazing. Truly you can see the ocean from every room! And, at night you hear the ocean waves. Besides, playing golf and one other snorkeling excursion, we stayed at the condo and at its beautiful beach. It had everything we needed. We ate all meals in the condo. We picked up items from Costco on our way down and went a couple of times to Safeway. The grills on the property are very clean and easy to use. The only two things I could suggest would be screens on the windows and a dish-rack. We love Sands of Kahana and cannot wait to come back!

Owner's Response: Aloha Tracee. Thank you so much for the kind review. We want everyone to have a wonderful stay at our little slice of paradise. Great suggestion on the dish rack. Really! I don't know why we never thought of this. We sometimes just hand wash a few dishes instead of using the dish washer, and they are usually just stacked on top of each other. So we will be adding one tomorrow. We never felt a need for the window screens. There are few bugs here at the beach. That said, we will find a screen maker and see if we can get some installed! Thanks again for taking the time and making the effort to write a review!

Wonderful spot for family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed this condo and the location was perfect for us. The unit is really open and spacious and had plenty of room for our family of 5 plus a friend. The views are so gorgeous and take your breath away every time you look out the huge windows. The beach at the complex was great. It was never crowded and was beautiful to hangout every night and watch the sunset. Kaanapali was close enough to head down to a couple of times, but coming back to Kahana always felt great. The complex has all the amenities you could need and the concierge helped us setup a luau and a few other things. We really enjoyed cooking in the great kitchen and utilizing the BBQs on the grounds. Snorkeling off the beach was really fun and there is a family of massive turtles we always enjoyed locating. Overall, our Maui vacation was just perfect and this condo felt like home. Thanks for sharing it with us and we can't wait to go back.

Owner's Response: We are thrilled that you enjoyed the place and found for yourself so much of what the resort and the area have to offer. The turtles are incredible! We feel the same about coming back to Kahana after visiting the other areas around us- it's hard to describe how much our area feels like home. We hope you will come back and enjoy our little slice of paradise again. Thank you for the wonderful review Justin. Mahalo, Warren

Perfect family vacation

  • 5 of 5

This condo had everything we needed. I wanted beachfront with an amazing view and I got exactly that. I had not used VRBO before and was just hoping everything would be as it was represented in the online description. It was absolutely perfect. There were six of us, 2 adults, 2 teens, 2 younger kids and there was not one complaint the entire week! The kitchen was totally stocked with everything I needed, and I cooked a lot. The view was amazing from every room - no kidding. The staff was very helpful when we wanted to find a luau. They got us booked into the Drums of the Pacific luau with only a couple of days notice and for a great price. It was fantastic! We hung out on the lanai for breakfast and happy hour and watched the sunset every night. We also watched movies and our favorite tv shows on demand after sundown with the cable service. Was there any down side? Not really. There were some tiny ants that were in the kitchen. They wiped up easily and I saw that traps were out for them. Also, all the blinds to either shade the sun or block the light are kind of on their last legs. We were a little afraid to use them because they didn't pull easily so we mostly just left them all up day and night. Privacy is not a problem though because like I said, there is no one that can see in the windows because you are right at the ocean. But those little things were so trivial compared to the amazing time we had. We would never let something so small prevent us from enjoying another week there. We would go back in a heartbeat. Everyone had an amazing time!

Owner's Response: Aloha Laura. Thank you for the very kind review. I'm so happy that you and your family had such a wonderful time. It sounds like you really took advantage of all that the resort and Kahana have to offer. I appreciate your comments about the blinds . The roller type of mechanism can require a firm pull to raise. They are 4 years old, and we have not yet had any of the blind's break. I will have our property manager take a look, and I'll personally check them out when we return there in a little over a month. Thank you for staying at our place. Please come again! Mahalo, Warren

Summer Vacation in Maui

  • 5 of 5

The condo was everything we thought it would be and more. The view was spectacular from every room. The beach is just steps away. It was nice having two master bedrooms with views and private baths. The beds were both very comfy. The condo was perfectly decorated. The kitchen was stocked with plenty of pots, pans, utensils to cook with. The BBQ's on the property to use were cleaned daily. There is no air conditioning but it didn't seem to be problem. We just opened up the louvers in the kitchen and the sliders and the breeze came through beautifully. We loved to have our meals on the lanai to enjoy the beautiful views. The Times market was nearby for groceries. We would get up early before the heat and walk to the store. We rented snorkeling gear from Boss Frogs right across the street for the week. We would hang out on the beach at the condo and snorkel some there which was nice. Even saw some sea turtles from the lanai. The Gazebo in Napili was a great place for breakfast, but get there early if you don't like lines. Great banana mac/nut pancakes! Well worth the wait. We loved staying in Kahana, at a smaller complex without all the crowds. You can easily drive to all the craziness and come back to quiet and tranquility. Our teenagers didn't want to leave. My family will be back to this condo for sure!

We hope we can have you stay with us again. Mahalo, Warren

This is a resort in a part of Maui that has a beach town feel. There are many local businesses within walking distance. Also nearby are local and farmers markets. This place is great for all beach and ocean activities, for use as a base of operations for daily trips, or just a beautiful place to hang out. Kapalua Beach and Napili beach are only 7 minutes drive down beautiful Lower Honoaliipani Road. Lahaina is also only a few minutes away.
