About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 bathroom, full kitchen oceanfront condominium

Welcome to Kahana Reef #215. You will enjoy the serenity of this oceanfront condominium situated in the Kahana area of West Maui.

Kahana is north of the hustle and bustle of the Ka'anapali Beach hotel zone and just minutes south of the famed Napili and Kapalua areas. This quiet condominium is one of only 88 units in three, four story buildings. Our unit is on the second floor, in the middle building, offering you solitude and security, with a clear view of the property and coastline.

The property is superbly maintained by an onsite grounds staff, keeping the lushly landscaped property and pool area neat and clean.

Our condo was recently renovated with new carpet in bedroom and refinished bamboo flooring throughout. All new linens and towels, new furniture, kitchenware and small appliances.

Two beach chairs and beach towels are available for your use.

***Please Note***Not suitable for children due to unlocked pool access and an unprotected sea wall that drops into deep water.

***Please Note*** Construction will begin to repair our sea wall in April 2018.

We are expecting daytime construction noise***

About Denise Speicher

Hello, We are Denise and Fred Speicher, from North Tustin, California. We have two grown up sons, both enjoying life on their own.

We enjoy travel and outdoor adventure. Have a vacation home in Rancho Mirage California, and enjoy road trips in our motorhome.

Denise Speicher purchased this condo in 2014

Why Denise Speicher chose Lahaina

We have been traveling to Maui for over fifteen years and have enjoyed discovering the special places on the island during these visits. We began our regular travels to the island by purchasing a timeshare in the Ka'anapali area about ten years ago. In November 2014, we decided to make a perrmanent commitment to this fantastic island and purchased the condo, in one of our favorite areas for beaches and snorkeling.

We feel we made a fantastic decision and believe you will see why Kahana Reef is so special.

What makes this condo unique

After looking at several properties, in West Maui, we discovered Kahana Reef. The moment we walked through the front door our eyes shot straight through the unit, out the expansive glass wall, to a view of the blue ocean and the island of Moloka'i. We knew this was our Maui dream home.

What a wonderful spot for a couple’s getaway! This was our first trip to Maui and the accommodations could not have been better. This condo is modern and comfortable. You are right on the ocean and have access to the beach, the pool, and plenty of lawn chairs to soak up the sun. Also, the view is amazing! The entire experience was very relaxing. We enjoyed spending time on the lanai reading, sipping coffee, and staring off into the sea. It may be warm out but you never get too hot with the cool ocean breeze. The condo is walking distance to a handful of restaurants including the Maui Brewing Company, Miso Fat for Sushi, and wonderful coffee at the Hawaiian Village Coffee shop. You can also stock up at the Whalers General Store or the farmers market. The location is perfect because you are close to it all, but also tucked away in a quiet complex. It is only a short drive to the Napili and Kapulua Beaches which are well known to be some of the nicest on the island. They both have soft sand and plenty of opportunities for spotting turtles and fish. The condo also comes with beach chairs, towels, and an umbrella for shade. We loved the comforts of this condo which included wood floors and updated carpet in the bedroom. There are flat screen TVs in the living and bedroom and the kitchen includes coffee supplies and high end cooking utensils. The linens are soft and the bed is comfortable. All in all, these amenities are very much appreciated in your home away from home. We wish we never had to leave, but we’ll definitely be back!

Wonderful! 4.9/5 -

Relaxing vacation on Maui

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I really enjoyed our week here. The apartment was spotless and very well stocked. We come to Maui to get out of the cold and rain, to relax on the lanai and enjoy the sight and sounds of the ocean. We were not disappointed, the view was spectacular and we saw humpback whales and sea turtles while lounging on the lanai. The location could not be better, away from the crowds but convenient to everything we needed.

Kahana Reef 215 was AWESOME! Views were outstanding: water crashing on sea wall & FANTASTIC sunsets!

  • 5 of 5

Rainbows greeted us everyday & sunsets amazed us every evening, right outside our door! The sound of waves were so relaxing while the sites of sea turtles & windsurfers were so enjoyable. The beach was just to the side of the complex & our thoughtful hosts had everything stocked in their closet for you to enjoy your time on the beach (ex: masks, noodles, boards). Their generosity extended to info about Maui, chairs, & small, collapsible cooler for picnics you could use while exploring ALL the many beaches & land demographics Maui claims! The bed was VERY COMFORTABLE & bath towels thick and fluffy. Unit was well equip to grill or eat in. We could tell the owners loved their unit & it made you feel at home instantly! Many great touring suggestions were left in the guest book, so be sure to read them & add your own adventures. YES!!!! We definitely recommend this condo to anyone that enjoys the sun, water & exploring beautiful “island discoveries”. We opened our bedroom windows & front door to circulate a most refreshing breeze. Great place for honeymooners, small family (1bdroom & sofa) or retired individuals/couples. Lol, we met all of these in the neighboring condos. Most endearing of all: the customs (ex: removing your shoes before entering) and learning a new language. Much MAHALO!

Beautiful condo is perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We had the most amazing time here! Waking up every morning to the waves crashing on the seawall. Beautiful and classy condo with every amenity you could ask for. Location location location! Small one bedroom condos keep many of the families away. Good place for couple or best friends.

Would Rent Again

  • 5 of 5

I liked the location, view, bed but the lanai was our favorite. Although the kitchen was well furnished we ate out. Take some quarters for laundry. Great snorkeling just down the steps.

Perfection!!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a week at Kahana Reef and for us, this condo was perfect. The location was fantastic. Not a ton to do in the immediate area but 10 minutes from Ka'anapali to the south and Kapalua to the north. Lahaina just another 5 minutes past Ka'anapali. We watched the sunset every even from the Lanai and it never failed to impress. The condo is comfortable and plenty spacious for two. With the front door open (the screen locks) and the slider to the lanai open there is a wonderful breeze that cools things down. The bed was comfortable and the kitchen had everything we needed. We cooked downstairs on the bbq one night which was great. (Bought our fish ... expensive fish ... at the Fish Market down the road.) Rented our snorkel gear for the week at the little fishing/snorkel shop next door to the Fish Market.

Highlights of our trip

-- Sunrise at Hale'akala: A MUST DO ... but remember to leave early (we left at 3:30 and barely made it for the 6:10 sunrise) and, more importantly, you MUST HAVE RESERVATIONS (we saw two cars turned away at the gate for not having reservations)

-- Snorkeling at Honolua Bay (north of the condo) -- Get there early as parking spaces fill up.

Denise worked with us we when we had a family emergency. She went above-and-beyond and was so gracious and accommodating. We loved this spot. We will most definitely stay here anytime we return to Maui.

The condo was immaculate and tasteful meeting our every need. No beach at site but nearby and close to whalers village and other activities. Best ocean views ever-- enjoyed on the green grass lawn below and from our lovely deck. Highly recommended!!!
