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.

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.

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!

One of the best rooms I have EVER stayed in.

  • 5 of 5

This room is amazing. A football throws distance from the ocean, this room has incredible views that take your breath away every time you enter the room. We opened the sliding door and got the best night's sleep ever listening to the waves splashing on the shore and feeling the island breezes blowing in.

The room is very nice and well kept, with wood floors and nice looking furniture and decorations. It is stocked with dishes, pantry items, beach toys, good books, and other things that make the trip more enjoyable.

The only "con" to this place is that the beach is not one of my favorites in Maui. There is a property right next to Kahana Reef that is not keeping itself as beautiful as it should being right on the beach like that. When you get into the water right off the beach the view you have looking back to shore is junk. In order to prevent that you have to walk a little further down the beach, where the beach is rockier and not as smooth as the better Maui beaches. The water is clean, however, and if what you want is to get in for a swim, it works.

All that being said, the beach is fine if you just walk a little further past the eyesore, and you are within a short drive (or even walk) of many amazing beaches. I'm sure the neighbor with all of the junk will get that stuff cleaned up soon, and in the meantime all of the "pros" to this place outnumber the fact that the one closest beach isn't as good as beaches that would take just a few more minutes to walk to. The gorgeous view from the lanai, the convenient location, and the niceness of the room itself make it a no-brainer. You really need to stay here. Like I said, one of the greatest rooms I have ever stayed in. Don't pass this up. Book it now.

Great location on Maui

  • 5 of 5

Great location on Maui. Close to Lahaina and also close to great beaches and local restaurants.. Kahana Reef is quiet which is important since you’ll likely have your doors open throughout your stay to take advantage of the cross ventilation and the beautiful ocean vista.

Beautiful Property

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I really enjoyed our two weeks at this property. It was clean, comfortable and quiet. It is conveniently located close to great beaches for snorkeling (Kapalua and Napili) and D. T. Flemming for boogie boarding. Most times, it was only 10 minutes to Lahaina for restaurants and sight seeing. Since we were there during the whale season, we enjoyed seeing the whales leaping and spouting from the Lanai. I would definitely recommend this location. It was reasonably priced when compared to other waterfront condos. The building is a bit older than some newer places, but it is build very solid. You couldn't hear any footsteps above or TV's alongside. The washer and dryers are in a laundry facility, but they work well and we could do laundry very quickly since we could do multiple loads simultaneously. It was all good.

Kahana Reef is not a big, “luxury” hotel, but the location couldn’t be more stunning!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Kahana Reef many times and this unit is the best! We were impressed with how well-stocked the kitchen was, how comfortable the king-sized bed was and how artfully decorated it is. We appreciated the small but important touches like beach chairs, snorkel equipment and even laundry soap! We stay here often because it is a small, friendly complex with privacy and spectacular views feet from the waves! Thank you Denise!
