About the property

Amazing location between Lahaina and Napili. Direct access to sandy beach.

Extensively remodeled. This is luxury living in paradise!

Sunsets, whale watching, turtles and a view of Molokai from the lanai. Newly renovated! The entire condo was completely remodeled with high end appliances and finishes. It is truly a place you'll want to spend your vacation. Hear the waves crashing while you sleep. Watch the most amazing sunsets Our 3rd floor unit gives you an incredible view of what you're coming to Maui to experience -- the ocean!

Comfortably sleeps 4 people. There is a king size bed in the bedroom and a queen sofa sleeper in the living room.

Parking for one vehicle, Pool, Beach lounge chairs, direct access to sandy beach, elevators, washer and dryer. Cable TV, phone and Internet access are provided.

We live in Washington State and have an on-site manager to handle any issues that may arise.

Quiet and close to everything. We are not located in the big resort areas. If you are looking for a romantic location this is it!

While we can't guarantee it, we encounter sea turtles on almost a daily basis in front of our condo. We enjoy whale watching from our lanai (balcony) If you like to snorkel, jump in the water there is great snorkeling right out front of the condo. We just learned to surf at S-Turns park which is a short walk from the condo.

Great restaurants are close by, we can give a recommendation if you would like.

There is public transportation. We are right on a bus line. Parking is included for one vehicle.

About Maria Russell

Rhett & Maria Russell; We live in Washington State with our two kids, and three dogs.

We own a business in the Seattle area and love the outdoors. We love to do anything that involves the water; boating, sailing, snorkeling, swimming, and we just learned to surf!

Maria Russell purchased this condo in 2015

Why Maria Russell chose Lahaina

We have visited Maui many times before deciding to purchase a condo. What was important to us was being close to the beach. Why go all this way and not be able to hear the surf crashing at night?

Our condo is great because it's not in one of those huge high rise buildings. It's a very well maintained building with lush tropical landscaping that is close to shopping, restaurants and all the outdoor activities that we like to do. We hope you feel the same way.

What makes this condo unique

We love exploring the island and then coming back to our own private retreat. We're located close to Honolua Bay which we aren't going to describe, but it should be on everyone's bucket list! You need to experience this place for yourself.

We love the drive to Hana on the back road. All of the rental car agencies tell you not to do it. We wouldn't do it at night, but it is AMAZING.

The upcountry town of Makawao has an artist village and a bakery that you don't want to miss.

If you really want to see some world class surfing, head to the North Shore and go to Ho'okipa. We've seen turtles their EVERY time we visit sunning themselves on the beach. We counted 19 on our last trip.

You'll want to visit Haleakala crater and view the sunrise at 10,000 feet. You'll talk about this for the rest of your life.

Amazing view nicely updated condo

  • 4 of 5

What a wonderful condo complex. Centrally located with fabulous beaches minutes away. The unit is well appointed with everything need for a comfortable stay. The best lawn in Hawaii. Comfortable king bed. The view is unbeatable, turtles and lizards right out front provide endless hours of entertainment. Can't wait to stay there again

Ocean front, quiet and luxurious condo!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures you see are what you are going to experience! I traveled with my two best friends and we had the best time! We stayed 9 nights and didn't want to leave. The condo was spotless and the kitchen was well stocked. The owners also provided beach towels, beach chairs, umbrella and snorkeling gear. Maria was very responsive and great to deal with! She provided a long list of places to eat, hike and explore. We referred to that list daily! We spent many hours in the lanai watching sea turtles frolic in the water. While sitting on the lanai you will feel that you are staying in one of those huts on the water as immediately in front of the condo is a rock wall and the water always comes all the way up. We could of easily thrown a rock in the water from our lanai. The sunsets were so beautiful! There is a beach just steps from the condo. There are also some fantastic snorkeling beaches just minutes from the condo. The owner was spot on about Maui Brewing company. We went there 3 times during our visit as it was so close and the food and beer were excellent and reasonable priced. I would avoid The China Boat restaurant. We are there one night and was so disappointed with the service and the food. Opposite of that, we are at Mamas Fish House located about 50 minutes from the condo. If you have the opportunity, eat there! This by far is the best restaurant that I have ever eaten at. The location, service and food were amazing! Reservations are a must. Just be aware that it is pricey but so worth it!

If you want to have a serene, breathtaking view of the ocean, fall asleep to the waves crashing and wake up to birds chirping this is the place for you. We can't wait to stay here again!!

An updated, oceanside property, absolutely amazing views and the location was excellent!

  • 5 of 5

This property is amazing! The forward-thinking owners provided us with everything we needed for a relaxing visit. The unit has been recently remodeled and it is breath-taking. The building is safe, secure and very clean. I hesitate to say too much because we want another week open for us in the future, but this property is a jewel!

We loved our stay at Kahuna Reef.

  • 4 of 5

Location was terrific - remote and quiet yet very close to the action of Lahaina and Kaanapali. View from the condo is spectacular and provides lots of interest. Walked to Maui brewery and coffee shop. Doesn't get any better than that.
