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.

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.

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 West Maui

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!

Experience in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

I've been conflicted about writing a review of Denise's property. You know that feeling when you find a small piece of paradise and you don't want to share it, you want to keep it just for yourself? Of course, that would hardly be fair and I do remember my lessons from kindergarten about sharing. We have made several trips to Hawaii and always have an ocean view, but this is no ordinary ocean view. The photos are accurate; you are right on the ocean, and the ocean becomes a part of your days and nights. We stayed for about two weeks in April. Unfortunately, we just missed the whales, which would have been a front row seat from the lanai. The condo is well-stocked as all the other reviews state, and I won't repeat what they say. I was concerned about the laundry not being in the unit, but it is so convenient, very clean, and located nearby. The hamper has wheels, so no lugging laundry around. I actually got my laundry done faster because I wasn't limited to one washer. This is a peaceful, well-kept, and quiet complex, perfect for relaxing away from the more hectic parts of the island. We love this area and find it to be the best location for traveling throughout the island. The bed is comfortable, the kitchen is stocked, the unit is very nicely decorated and comfortable. As an added bonus for fish lovers, the Hawaiians next door run a fishing business. Near the end of our trip we spotted a boat heading our way along the shore loaded down with quite the catch. I understand they sell their fish to market, but a sign went up the next day for fresh fish, and many of the locals from the complex headed on over for some very delicious fresh fish. Can't beat that. One last thing I wanted to share. On our travels around the island I kept seeing these bumper stickers, "I've been Mauied." I just thought they were pretty silly, but since we've left I can't stop dreaming of the water in front of our unit, and I think I've been Mauied. Aloha to all and don't miss out on this little piece of paradise in paradise!

Our Favorite Place to Stay in Maui❤️

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at the Kahana Reef #215 and as always, we love it! The location is probably our favorite reason but it's also convenient to the local beaches,restaurants and shopping. Impeccably clean with all the amenities you need to make your vacation complete. Our children love the pool and could swim there for hours and the grassy oceanfront area is perfect to relax On a lounge chair or workout/do yoga in the morning while watching the ocean waves. We look forward to staying here again next year upon our return!

Perfect stay on Maui

  • 5 of 5

We just spent 10 beautiful days on Maui and the Kahana Reef 215 made it a perfect stay for us. We wanted ocean front, we got it. We wanted room to move around with an outside area to sit near the water and whale watch, enjoy sunsets, or just take in the view while having breakfast or drinks in the evening, we got it. It was the perfect spot for us.

The picture is an accurate view from the Lanai. Just about 50 yards to the right is a beach to sit at and swim and you can walk down to adjoining beaches from there.

There were turtles swimming through, we saw whales several times and once a mom and baby were right on the other side of the little shoal just hanging out.

Denise has provided all the amenities for your stay. I still had work to do and their wifi and room to spread out made that easy for me. We were just a short walk from stores and restaurants ,but it wasn't a noisy location.

The kitchen was well stocked with pretty much anything you might need. The bedroom was comfortable and keeping the place cool was easy with the fans and the air flow from Lanai through the windows to the opposite side.

We went into Lahaina for boat trips, dinner and just to hang out and it was an easy drive.

I would highly recommend staying with Denise at the Kahuna Reef. I know we will be back there next year.
