Property description

Aloha and welcome to our vacation home on Maui. Maui is one of the most beautiful places on earth and paradise for vacationers. Our fully renovated vacation home on the west coast of Maui is the perfect retreat for your Hawaiian vacation. The condominium has been meticulously renovated with luxury finishes and is owned and cared for with pride. The condominium is beautifully appointed, however the oceanfront views are the show stopper. From the 4th floor lanai the unobstructed views of the Pacififc ocean are nothing short of spectacular, even more so in whale watching season from December through early April.
Our fourth floor direct ocean front condo features porcelain and travertine floors, granite countertops, wine fridge, flat top stove, new fridge and fully equipped kitchen. All the kitchen ware and accessories you will need are supplied including plastic beverage ware for the pool and lanai. A full size blender for iced happy hour drinks, a single serve smoothie maker, a drip coffee machine and a French press for delicious Kona coffee. Refresh after a day in the sun in the oversized shower, a California king bed, two flat screen tv's, WIFI access and free local and long distance calling to the US and Canada make your stay on Maui perfect in every way.

We offer the free services of Maui's best vacation services company, which offers concierge services to plan any activities for you on Maui for free. One phone number connects you to a family owned business that can assist you with planning and enjoying your vacation. Ala carte items can be arranged for a small price including meet and greet at the airport, ground transportation, supply and stocking of fridge supplies, gift basket for you and your family, maid service along with a variety of other services. If there's ever a problem they will be there to make things right, so you can just focus on enjoying your vacation. Maui Vacation Services (808)-280-6453; Please note the condo complex is doing a plumbing renovation May - June 2016 and while our unit is not affected there will be daytime noise.

408 @ Kahana Reef enjoys the best views in Kahana Reef and benefits from a wonderful cross breeze from the afternoon tradewinds - just open the screened windows in the master bedroom and the lanai patio door and the condo gets a nice cross breeze from the nearly ever-present trade winds. Please note that no units at Kahana Reef have air conditioners and while the breeze is ideal almost everyday in all seasons of the year, for some desiring an air conditioner the tradewind breeze is not the same. Access is by elevator or stairs up four floors if you choose.

Kahana Reef, is an 88 unit oceanfront condominium complex; concrete walls keep things cool and quiet (we also do not have a neighboring unit to the north so our unit is very private). The oversized lanai (patio balcony) is the perfect place to enjoy morning Kona coffee and evening cocktails watching perfect sunsets with endless views to the islands of Molokai and Lanai in the distance. Kahana Reef has beautifully manicured grounds and tropical gardens. The clear, warm waters of the Pacific ocean are fifteen steps away. Located on Lower Honoapiilani Road between Ka'anapali (location of Whaler's Village which offers an array of shopping and restaurants) and the world famous Kapalua resort, Kahana Reef is ideally situated. The complex offers BBQ grills for owners and guests to enjoy, a pool heated by rooftop solar panels, kayak and surfboard storage, onsite parking, an extensive lawn to work on your tan while reading your favorite book, a perfect beach right next door to play in the ocean.
Restaurant choices are numerous from casual: Maui Brew Pub (have the BBQ Chicken thin crust pizza, or the Ahi Tuna Club sandwich), Maui Taco's (Zagat rated; have the Baha Fish Tacos, or the Ho'okipa Burrito if you are really hungry), Lelani's or Duke's on the beach a short drive to Ka'anaplai (amazing location, great casual food, live music, happy hour specials). Fine dining options nearby are abundant as well: Roy's (our favorite for a great meal, amazing food, outstanding service), Pineapple Grill at The Bay Course, or Merriman's (for a very upscale, special occasion fine dining experience, reservations a must), Kimo's in Lahaina, mid-price, great atmosphere, right on the ocean. These are but a few of the options for foodies on Maui.

You won't find a condominium unit improved to a higher standard than 408@Kahana Reef or better value. We look forward to welcoming you to our vacation paradise.

Kahana reef is ideally located on the west side of Maui, just a few miles north of Lahaina and Ka'anapali and south of Kapalua. Our Kahana condo has you minutes away from all that Maui has to offer. A nice sandy beach right next door, and a beautiful lawn and lawn chairs for suntanning or reading a book. Numerous restaurants and convenience shops within walking distance. Minutes away are some of Maui's best beaches: Napili Bay, Kapalua DT Fleming, Blackrock and Ka'anapali Beach (Old Airport Beach). Surfers also have numerous options only minutes away (S-turns, DT Fleming and Honolua Bay).


Owner info

About the owner: After over a dozen trips to Maui enjoying the sun, sand, surf, the Hawaiian culture and the warmth of the people, we decided to become a part of Maui by putting down our stake in the sand. Maui holds a special place in our hearts, the natural beauty of Maui is inescapable. The island offers incredible diversity from lush rainforest to endless sandy beaches to a 10,000 foot dormant volcano. The energy of Maui is also equally diverse, you can come to Maui and totally relax or if you seek an active vacation the options are limitless. We can help you whether you seek the former or the latter.

Why the Owner Chose Lahaina, HI, USA:
One stop at Kahana Reef was all it took to realize that Kahana Reef was something special. You can't be closer to the ocean on Maui and you simply won't find a better managed complex. These factors combined with an ideal location made choosing this property a great decision.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The lanai for the views, the lush green lawn for idly passing the day and watching the ocean, the beach right next door, walking 2 blocks to Kahana Gateway mall for coffee or for dinner at Maui Brew Pub and all that west Maui has to offer make this a very special place. Add the care and assistance of our Maui vacation support partner offering concierge services, vacation planning, and a host of personal options, you can focus on enjoying your vacation on Maui.
