About the property

Upper West Maui at its Best

Welcome to another great MAUI FOOTPRINTS property (Kahana Reef #221).

You will not find a nicer view on the island! Kahana Reef offers spectacular, unobstructed views of Molokai and Lanai, wonderful sunsets, dolphins, whale watching (during the winter months) and sea turtles. You can literally throw a stone into the ocean from the lanai. Endless activities are available on the island or just sit back and enjoy the peace and tranquility of Maui.

This highly upgraded, second-floor, one-bedroom unit includes a fully-equipped kitchen, bathroom with granite counter-tops and terrazzo tile and a private lanai with complete oceanfront views. Peaceful and serene, our unit offers a delightful alternative to large, high-rise hotels and resorts. At over 600 square feet, this unit sleeps 4, with a king-sized bed and convertible sofa. No need for air conditioning as the gentle trade winds keep you comfortable year round.

The owners remain committed to this vacation rental with numerous 2016/17 upgrades which include new carpeting, a new Sealy Posturepedic king mattress and a new sleeper-sofa with an eight-inch mattress.

Everything you need for your island getaway is provided or is just a short walk away. An oceanfront swimming pool, propane BBQ grills, laundry facilities and lounge chairs are all on premises. A sandy beach is located just steps outside your door. Shopping, restaurants and the local Farmer's Market are all within walking distance. Located between Kapalua and Ka'anapali, championship golf and fine dining are just minutes away. Additional shopping and entertainment in Lahaina are only a 10-minute drive.

Five Star Quality, but...

  • 5 of 5

A little caveat to our four star review. We have stayed at the Kahana Reef several times over the last few years and have always had a great experience. This unit is beautifully appointed and stocked with everything you need. We would absolutely stay there again. However, when we arrived for our stay, we found a note on the kitchen counter telling us that the dishwasher was not working and that parts were on order. It went on to say that 'this is Hawaii, and sometimes things take a while'. Things happen and sometimes they are beyond anyone's control. Having said that, leaving a note like that is fine if you are loaning your condo to a friend or relative. If you are charging someone to rent it from you, there is a different level of obligation. At the very least, we should have received a call in advance offering us the ability to find another place. Quite frankly, if it were me, I would have just put in a new dishwasher and figured it was just part of the cost of doing business. Better to spend $500 on a new dishwasher than lose a $1000 rental. I understand that it might seem a little nitpicky and, as I said, we would absolutely stay in the unit again because it is very nice, but we didn't choose a place without a dishwasher for a reason and felt that it should have been handled differently.

Owner's Response: We are so glad that you enjoyed our unit and your time on Maui; we are also sorry that you were inconvenienced by the dishwasher being out of service. Our guests' satisfaction is very important to us! Unfortunately, it is quite common on Maui to have to wait for parts from the mainland...island life has many wonderful perks but some drawbacks as well. Ordering a new dishwasher would not have alleviated the problem, as the delivery schedules here are often quite lengthy. We hope that the overall quality of our unit, as well as the tropical paradise setting, helped to offset any inconvenience. Thanks, again, for your stay with us!

Maui condo experience

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Kahana Reef was a great time of relaxation after a week in Oahu. The rental was even better than we had anticipated. It was right at the water, clean, efficient and close to restaurants, so that we did not feel the need to travel didtances every day.

Enjoyed our stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property for a week and enjoyed our stay. We liked whale watching from the lanai in the evenings. The grounds were quiet during the day and the water was usually calm during the afternoons. It was nice to have beach towels, chairs, coolers, etc. The condo was located near many nice beaches for swimming, snorkeling, etc.

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 (2 teenagers) thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this condo! The location was perfect and the place was very clean and met our needs perfectly. Everything was exactly as advertised and helped make our stay very enjoyable and memorable. The kitchen had all the supplies we needed and there is a grocery store close by where we were able to get the food we wanted -- no worrying about finding a restaurant and having to eat out all the time! We also had a pleasant surprise of finding a small cooler and ice packs available at the condo which was perfect for packing a lunch while exploring the road to Hana. The views were stunning and the quiet little beach next to the condo made for a perfect beginning and ending to each day. Our youngest teenage daughter summed it up best for our family when she said "I'm so happy here, I don't ever want to leave!" Can't ask for a better review than that!

Perfect week in Maui

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for our stay in Maui! It was exactly as represented above, and Becky was tremendously helpful before and during our stay. I was so pleased to have beach chairs and a cooler to use for our trips to the beach! (And an umbrella.. the wind just wouldn't let us use it.) You are a short drive from restaurants and many beautiful beaches. Parking is right at condo so you don't have to hike to your car like at the resorts. The view off the lanai can't be beat - we missed the whale season but got to see a few turtles swimming along. It is hard to believe the trip is over - I hope I get to return to Kahana Reef #221 soon!

Excellent condo-highly recommend!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd trip to Maui, but first time at Kahana Reef. Condo was just an presented and wonderful. We have rented condo units from the property manager, Becky, in the past and she is top notch. Enjoyed watching the turtles play infront of the condos and seeing whales spout from the lanai. Location is great, close to Lahaina and Kaanapali resorts. Loved the laid back feeling here. Very relaxing vacation. Mahalo.
