About the property

Ocean View Studio #805.

Our partial ocean view studio has received a full makeover with new porcelain floors throughout, cabinets, granite counter tops, and new appliances. The unit has a full kitchen with a stove, microwave, full refrigerator, dishwasher, coffee maker, blender, toaster, cookware, and utensils. We will provide you with linens, towels, cookware, soaps, and shampoos. Our studio also has a washer/dryer, flat screen TV, DVD, free WiFi, and local phone service. The condo is exactly as pictured, clean, well maintained and a true home away from home. When you arrive to the Royal Kahana 805, you will find beach gear and tour books are already in the unit for your use allowing you to start enjoying Maui right away!

Drift to sleep listening to the sounds of the ocean. Catch a gorgeous sunset from the lanai or turtles swimming below. Snorkeling just off of the Royal Kahana is a perfect way to start the morning or enjoy one of West Maui's only heated pools.

Our condo is on the North side of the oceanfront Royal Kahana Resort on the 8th floor. The Royal Kahana Resort is located 15 minutes from Lahaina, 10 minutes from Kaanapali, and minutes from great beaches and golf courses. There are restaurants, bars, and shopping within walking distance. The Royal Kahana resort has a heated pool, gas grills, gym, ping pong, and beachfront snack bar.

**If you do not find dates that work with your scheduled time, our family also has a similar studio Royal Kahana #1103.

About Karri Ayasanonda

I have resided on Maui for the past 12 years and manage several vacation rentals with my family.

Karri Ayasanonda purchased this condo in 2014

Why Karri Ayasanonda chose Lahaina

I manage this property for my in-laws who live in Honolulu. We chose this property for the great location near many great beaches and restaurants, yet away from busy Kaanapali.

What makes this condo unique

Royal Kahana is a beachfront property made up of just over 200 units. There are several restaurants and shops within walking distance. The views of the ocean are fantastic, we can sit on the balcony and watch the whales playing off shore, occasionally spot pods of dolphins, and often a turtle or two in the surf.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Fabulous place to "come home" to after our adventures. Having been here before we were looking for some new stuff. 1st leaving here and onto highway-go left and wait for gorgeous views. All day at Molokai & Lanai were both favorites. They have a new tour down into the Hansen's community. Whale watching in season a must! It was great to not have to run out and buy everything Great room, nicely furnished. We'd like to stay here again. Plenty of room for two.

Perfect location and well appointed!

  • 5 of 5

We chose to stay at the RK 805 for our first ever trip to Hawaii as it appeared to have everything we needed. This was definitely the case, and once we arrived we knew we made the right choice! The location is far enough away from busy Kaanapali and Lahaina , but still a very short drive to both. The kitchenette was stocked well and we enjoyed cooking most of our meals there. The view of the water is pretty good and we even saw a large sea turtle from the lanai. Parking was plentiful on the property and we felt safe. The abundance of restaraunts and amazing beaches close by made us feel we were getting great value for the stay. We will definitely consider returning on our next voyage to Maui!

Thanks Karri

Great value for an ocean view property

  • 4 of 5

Property has a lovely ocean view. We slept with the slider open and enjoyed the ocean breezes each night we were there and were very comfortable. That said, in CA I typically live most of my life in Air Conditioning. Condo is nicely located, and so central to most places we wanted to be. Enjoyed following Karri's advice on restaurants (and really all advice he gave!) and we loved the sushi place across the street. Karri is very attentive, and quick to respond and the condo is very well stocked, is quite comfortable, and he seemed to pretty much think of everything a guest might want for a nice stay. Anticipate being a "repeat customer".

Perfect home base for our Maui vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We came to Maui to celebrate our honeymoon. The studio is very well equipped with everything you might need for your Maui vacation! We made breakfast in the condo every morning and packed a lunch to go on our beach adventures! The condo has a cooler which made packing lunch easy! The bed is very comfortable and the linens are top notch. The view from the condo is amazing, it was so nice to sit on the balcony and drink our morning coffee! The champagne on arrival was a very special touch!! Thank you so much for the amazing hospitality, we will be coming back!!

Would stay again!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was fantastic, especially for the price!! The condo was very well maintained, nicely decorated, super clean and cozy! The bed was quite comfortable for me, as I like a bed on the softer side. Karri has the condo well stocked; in the bathroom with toiletries, some items in the fridge and plastic containers in the kitchen for left overs or to use for taking items to a picnic on the beach. We even took the provided umbrella, beach towels and straw mats to the beaches on Maui, which was great to have!

The condo was within walking distance to a couple places to eat; the coffee shop and Maui Brewing Co. in particular are ones we visited and pretty good (lots of beer options at Maui Brewing Co). For a lot of other food options you will have to travel but it doesn't have to be a long drive to near-by restaurants. The same goes for beaches; the condo sits on a beach, though it wasn't our favorite so we explored other beaches on Maui and would come back to the condo each night for a peaceful and comfortable place to relax and sleep!

I would recommend this condo to anyone especially to those who are trying to stay on budget or those that just want a nice but simple and cozy place to stay on Maui!

Sweet and simple

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I came here on our honeymoon. It was a great little spot for us. Not to far away from town about 10-15 min drive to all the food and fun you want. Also I am a clean freak and this place was in great shape. Lastly the price was reasonable enough for us to stay almost 2 weeks which allowed us to relax. If you don't need or want big resort prices or life this is a great place.
