About the property

New Remodel Ocean View Studio

We have completed a beautiful renovation of our partial ocean view studio in June 2015. Our family is excited to invite guests to come enjoy our Hawaiian home at Royal Kahana #1103! Drift to sleep to the sound of the ocean, spot whales (whale season is December through April) and turtles from the lanai. Watch the waves roll in with the majestic island of Molokai in the background. The view from the lanai reaches up the coast to Kapalua.

The studio is kept spotless and has received a full makeover with new tile flooring throughout. The new kitchen is fully stocked and features cherry wood cabinets, granite, and new appliances. We have included a dishwasher in our kitchen to allow for easy clean-up. The newly tiled bathroom has a modern walk-in shower with glass doors, new cabinets, granite, and fixtures. We have even included a custom tile feature inside our beautiful shower. We have chosen comfortable new furniture and beautiful art pieces. The condo includes a California king size bed, love seat, inside and outside dining areas, washer/dryer, flat screen TV, DVD, free WiFi, and local phone service. Also included are linens, towels, soaps, and shampoos. The tour books and beach gear will be ready for you to start your vacation as soon as you arrive!

Royal Kahana is within walking distance to shopping and restaurants and a few minutes drive Maui's top golf courses, beaches, and hiking. The resort boasts a heated pool, shuffle board, and fitness room.

We invite you to come for a visit and see for yourselves why our family loves this condo so much!

Guestbook comments from the owner


My new husband and I are so happy to have discovered this beautiful "home". Karri, you have done such a great job here. Clean, charming, impeccably decorated with all the bells and whistles, we loved it!

We have both been to Maui many times but neither of us ever took the road to Hana. With all of the amazing rest your place provides, we finally had the energy to make the trip. It was simply heaven.

We also discovered a new restaurant in Lahaina: Honu!

Don't miss the spicy octopus and ahi bruschetta. To die for!

Thank you for making our honeymoon such a great experience. The best way to start our new lives together.

Perfect Oceanview and Getaway for Two

  • 5 of 5

Karri was easy to communicate with and very helpful regarding her rental. The property was perfectly updated and provided amenities that would be hard to find elsewhere. It was also perfectly situated in the heart of West Maui with everything you need in a 10 mile radius. My only warning is that with the shoreline being swept away in the past year, the property no longer has walk out ocean front. This is nothing Karri could do to fix, but should be known when renting the property as it changes beach plans and parking can be difficult if you drive North to Kapalua beach. The property was comfortable, clean, and will definitely will be where I stay in the future.

Owner's Response: Thank you Sarah for your review. I am happy to hear that you had a great visit on Maui and enjoyed our vacation home. I am sorry that there was not a beach in front of our property during your visit. We have included this information in our ad so that guests are aware. Unfortunately much of Maui has experienced ongoing erosion to the beaches due to large waves and rising sea levels. It is more apparent during the Winter months with North swells which remove the sand from the beaches. The beach generally returns come Summer, but during the Winter we often have to explore different beaches dependent on the conditions at the time. Luckily we are close to many great beaches so we don't have to look too far! I look forward to your return in the future. Kind Regards, Karri Ayasanonda

The room was very nice and clean. Disappointed there was no beach.

There was a lot of thought by the owner to make the condo as comfortable as possible. There was everything we needed in the kitchen to our surprise. The decor was beautiful. The fact that lawn chairs and snorkel gear were made available was wonderful. Loved the hair products and body lotions available. Great choices. Owner was very responsive when we go had a question.

Owner's Response: Aloha David, thank your for your kind review. I am happy to hear that you enjoyed your visit at our vacation home. We have furnished the unit with all the essentials plus some extras such as beach gear to provide for a worry-free stay. I am sorry that there was not a beach fronting our property during your stay. The larger ocean swells have affected many of Maui's beaches this Winter, we do expect the beach to return in the next few months. Luckily if our beach is closed we are very close to many other great beaches just a few minutes away. Mahalo, Karri Ayasanonda

Simply Perfect.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I got married in Maui, and called this studio home for nearly 2 weeks. It was amazing. Super cool decor, the studio is decorated perfectly and not over done. EXTREMELY CLEAN!!! I cannot stress enough how amazing it was to walk in and see the amazing upkeep of the studio. It was perfect. They do have an AC but we found ourselves with the doors of the lanai open most of the time. The breeze was fantastic and the view was great! The owner, Karri, was amazing as well. She gave us numerous suggestions on places to go and food to eat. She was perfect. I have not one negative thing to say about the stay other than I got swimmers ear...which has absolutely nothing to do with this fabulous studio. Super Nice and clean pool with grills for you to use and quick access to the beach from the Royal Kahana grounds.

Great place to stay! WHEN we go back, we'll definitely get in contact with Karri again to stay at this property.
