Why our condo??

I love our location; we have a piece of heaven here. Our condo has a spectacular view of the ocean.

From our lanai, you can relax and witness weddings on the grounds below. You can gaze upon the Island of Molokai, delight in the whales as they jumped and played in the water (during whale season), gape at the wind surfers as they do their flips and tricks, spot turtles in the water or up on the beach, and take in one of Maui's many rainbows or stunning sunsets.

At night I love to sit out on the lanai and listen to the waves or depending on my mood, I may prefer to enjoy some Hawaiian music from our great NHT speakers. Our nights are surreal on Maui, from the gorgeous sunsets to the beautiful starlit skies. From our lanai, you can see it all. After you enjoy another gorgeous sunset, you can look out to the distance lights on Molokai, look up to the Big Dipper and relax to the crashing waves as they shimmer in the moonlight.

Our hope is that when you stay in our condo, you will enjoy all the beauty and peace that surrounds you and after you venture out to enjoy many of Maui’s treasures, you’ll be able to return to a place that’s inviting and feels like home.

All condos are individually owned and we take exceptional pride in our condo. Our condo is tastefully decorated in Hawaiian tropical theme to enhance your Maui experience. Guest satisfaction is extremely important to us and it is evident in our attention to details and extras that we supply!

We feel blessed to have this piece of paradise and want others to be able to enjoy it as much as we do. Some people may only be able to come to Maui once in their lifetime and we want to do all that we can to ensure a wonderful experience. Thought and attention to detail are noted throughout our condo, from the artwork and bamboo themed utensils to all other amenities left for our guests to enjoy!

About Keri Leslie

We live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. The most important thing in our lives is our family. We have two wonderfully bright, kind children and both of them have received both State and National academic awards. They are no doubt my greatest accomplishment! I am truly blessed! Our eldest child just graduated Harvey Mudd College in Physics and Math. He will be teaching and pursuing his doctorate in Physics at UC Berkeley. Our daughter is a Junior at the University of Washington studying nursing. For us, retirement is about 3 years off or when we no longer have college expenses. :) Our family is musically oriented. My son is an accomplished upright bass player, with a passion for symphonic music. My husband is an awesome guitarist. My daughter is full of rhythm, is a percussionist and loves to dance. My husband and I grew up on barbershop harmony (a capella) and we have passed that down to our kids. In our free time, my husband and I play in a 60's/80's band. Our kids used to play in our band until they went off to college. I guess they didn't take us seriously when we told them that music comes first! :)

Keri Leslie purchased this condo in 2001

Why Keri Leslie chose West Maui

We had been coming to the Royal Kahana for a few years before we finally purchased our condo. We fell in love with the property and area, so when our condo came up for sale, we just couldn't pass it up. We bought this place to give us an oasis, to be able to get away from our busy lives and relax. This is our home away from home. We have put a lot of love and thought into decorating our condo and hope to someday spend more time here once we retire. I love remodeling and interior decorating and I owned a cabinet shop for a short time. So I love spending time decorating our condo. When I design and/or remodel, function is my number one priority. The details are really important to me as it makes the entire picture more beautiful and everyday things just flow. There may be many things that you don't even notice in our condo, but thought went into everything we have done.

What makes this condo unique

High-end apploances and furnishings. Designed for comfort. Condo contains more than just the necessities.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Keri & Ted

Your condo was absolutely beautiful. The ocean view from the unit was fantastic. We have stayed in several ocean view condos in Maui and this is by far our favorite.

From the high quality furnishings to the wonderful Hawaiian themed decor, it was as good as it gets.



Thank you

Joe & Sue

Remarkable Rental Property

  • 5 of 5

We've used several rental properties but none compare to the care and fine touches that have gone into this one! Very upscale decorating and high quality furnishings set this apart from the normal rental. This owner truly cares about providing an ideal living space while enjoying the natural beauty of Maui. Great view, great location on Kahana Coast and good concierge service supplement the condo for a wonderful vacation!

Owner's Response: Yes, we care very much. Everyone has stressors in their life and vacations are needed to give one time to relax, recharge and make great memories. We truly want our guests to enjoy their vacation. Some may only be able to come to maui once in their life time and we want to make sure it's a vacation they will always remember. So glad you had a great vacation and we hope you can return again! Warm Aloha, Keri

BEAUTIFUL CONDO *** BEAUTIFUL VIEW

  • 5 of 5

I live on Maui and always choose Royal Kahana when friends and family come to visit. While I have stayed at a number of Royal Kahana condos, Keri's condo is beyond exceptional. It is beautifully furnished, has absolutely everything you will need for a great stay, and the view from the lanai is spectacular. My niece from Alaska and I stayed at Keri's condo the first week of September and enjoyed dinner and mai tais on the lanai while watching the beautiful sunsets. This condo is located on the side of the building that doesn't get direct sunlight resulting in being able to enjoy the lanai and view any time of the day. This condo is so well-equipped that you can even print your boarding passes and baggage tags prior to your departure. Kari's communication, follow-through, and caring that we had a great experience was noticed and appreciated. I will definitely be recommending my friends and family stay at Kari's condo on their future visits.

All the pros of a hotel and a high-end home rolled up in one!

  • 5 of 5

It has all the pros of a high-end hotel: very clean, high-end furnishings & appliances and everything matches and appears to be brand new. The complex has luggage carts, underground parking, ping-pong table, shuffleboard, nice pool, snack bar and even a concierge. . It has all the pros of a high-end home: Nice comfortable furniture, bed and pillows. Quality linens, bath & beach towels, dishes and utensils. nice stereo with CD's and an iPod filled with music, they even have recent/decent dvd movie selection. They have a computer connect to the internet and a printer! The kitchen is so well stocked, they even have a Vitamix blender, I'm even too cheap to buy one of those for my house. There are basic spices, oils, baggies, foil etc and they supplies k-cup coffee pods too. All the pantry items were clean and were marked with date opened, so I felt comfortable using them. I've stayed in places that have those items and the cupboards are so grungy I wouldn't use them. I cut myself on some coral and needed a first aide kit, they had it. I opened a lot of the drawers around the condo and I think they have thought of everything. They have all the quality convenience items one would purchase if you lived here. Nice Tommy Bahama backpack chairs with attached coolers, and retractable shades. Boogie boards, snorkel gear... I could go on. We will definitely be back and highly recommend this place. Thanks for all the extra effort, it really added so much to our stay.

As good as it gets!

  • 5 of 5

Okay, so I thought I would give it a few days after our Hawaiian vacation to write this review. I can't help but want to let you know it was "As good as it gets"

This truly is a little piece of paradise in Maui. Keri was great during the whole process and I actually feel like I've known her for years. I must say I was hesitant to stay in a condo in Maui as our trip last spring was at the Ritz Carlton in Kapalua, but it was great in this condo! I must let you know that I am a fanatic about clean, and this condo was immaculate. Everything you need was thought out by the owner and provided for your convenience. The view is gorgeous even from the shower. Better than the Ritz in my opinion. The only thing I was missing was a 24 hour butler;) Great beaches are just a 5 minute drive. I particularly enjoyed Napili Beach. Keri has a binder with great information it"s a must and totally worth looking at. Her opinions are accurate. I would not hesitate to stay here again.

Thank you to the Leslie's for "Sharing you Blessings" with us.

Amazing first time in Hawaii!!

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time going to Hawaii, and it turned out to be a wonderful trip! Keri Leslie’s property was a great choice to stay. After adventures around the island, you come back to a comfortable and relaxing place. Nothing can beat watching the sunset over the water on the balcony. It was a very simple and easy checkin and checkout, and Keri was always available to answer any questions. Also, the staff at the Royal Kahana were very nice and helpful. In general the Royal Kahana has a nice lawn to layout on if you dont want to go to the beach, a clean pool area, and a beach to enjoy. I would highly recommend staying at this property.

Thanks again Keri!!
