*Beach information

The beach fronting the Royal Kahana experiences seasonal ocean current changes that influence the beach’s physical appearance and size. During the fall and winter, it is not uncommon that these currents sweep away a very large amount of sand, which will gradually return back in spring and summer, based on the ocean's current activity. Our homeowners Assoc., The County of Maui, and the State of Hawaii are working diligently to return Kahana Bay to its full potential.

This circumstance, unfortunately, affects the accessibility of our valued guests to the beach. While there may not be, at times, direct access from the property to the beach during the fall and winter season, there is a public beach access within 5 minutes walking distance.

Our guests' safety is of the utmost concern for us. We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your understanding.

You can stay updated on our ocean front access by viewing our web page, rkmaui(dot)com, and checking the postings on the homepage. We update the postings as soon as we receive new information from the resort.

About Shelly and Dan Williamson, Property Managers

We are Dan and Shelly Williamson. We live year-round in Washington State and visit Maui at least three times a year. Although I (Shelly), continue to work on Dan to make a permanent move to Maui - he is still resisting.

We love the Royal Kahana and know you will too!

Shelly and Dan Williamson, Property Managers purchased this condo in 2014

Why Shelly and Dan Williamson, Property Managers chose Lahaina

Our family has owned and vacationed at the Royal Kahana since 1978. I grew up visiting with my family on holidays as have my own children. I love it today as much as I always have. I love sharing our hidden treasure with others.

While my family owns multiple homes at the Royal Kahana, this home is owned by friends. This home is loved, cared for and holds tremendous memories.

What makes this condo unique

The Royal Kahana is centrally located on West Maui. The beachfront location is a prime viewing spot for the passing whales from October through mid-April as well as a year-round home for Green Sea Turtles, a frequent site on our beach.

The Royal Kahana is located in beautiful Kahana Bay. We have shuffleboard, table tennis and a beautiful heated pool. Life does not get any better than a vacation at Royal Kahana #301.

It was nice, I might stay again

  • 4 of 5

I planned this trip about a month before we arrived for spring break which is pretty much last minute with spring break/Hawaii standards.

We arrived very late, probably midnight, and I have to say that parking was a nightmare. I understand it was spring break but we had an SUV rental and if it wasn't for some random employee walking through the parking lot, we would've had no idea where to park. Zero spaces in the outside lot and all but one in the underground parking said 'Reserved'. My husband had to literally squeeze in and out of the one space in the underground and have someone help him back in because it was that tight. The other nights we were sure to be in at dusk so we could park.

The grounds were decent but the beach was closed and that had no impact on us as we just went to a different one. There is no shortage in that area.

The condo itself was okay. This was our 8th trip to Kaanapali and I have to admit that this property was probably the least updated with regard to living conditions. The fridge was newer but the dishwasher was old and it was hard to figure out how to use. The bathroom sink and vanity really need updating. I did not care that I had to pay a cleaning fee but it was left in the unit rules that I had to strip the beds and empty the trash bins. If I pay however much, I expect that would be done after I leave. I also didn't care for the fact that there was no housekeeping during the week so if I needed clean towels, I had to wash my own. Or if my children had sand in their beds or whatnot, I had to wash the sheets myself- again- this is what I expect to pay cleaning fees for.

The timer for the dryer also didn't work. I put clothes in say at noon and timer for 60 minutes. Probably more than two hours later I remembered the laundry was in and went to get it out and it was still running. And the clothes weren't even dry after that long. And it sounds funny but the toilet flush lever is so hard to push down that you honestly have to use two hands to flush lol.

This did the job and my family was okay with it but next time I would probably choose to stay at a place that does have a usable beach so we didn't have to pack up and go somewhere every day. I know this isn't the property's fault. I'd also like more modern amenities.

Disappointing resort

  • 3 of 5

I regret needing to write this review. This condo is well maintained. The owners have taken very good care of it. The ocean view is quite lovely. That is why I regret needing to tell the rest of the story. King tides have completely washed away the beach. In order to save the Resort there is a wall of huge black sandbags about five or more feet thick. Although necessary, much of the charm of an ocean front Resort has been lost. An equivalent walk to the beach access is about two blocks. The resort itself is older and has little to offer. A basic pool with no ocean view, barbecues that are very difficult to light and large lawn areas with sparse lawn furniture. All things considered I would not choose this resort again. Dan and Shelly, I regret writing this review. You were easy to work with and seem like lovely people. I wrote it because I kept getting repeated request for reviews.

Owner's Response: Aloha and good morning Teri, We were so disappointed to receive your review last night. Thank you for sharing with us. We take these reviews seriously and use them to make the experiences better for future guests and for you when you return. It is unfortunate about our beach, steps are moving forward, as I write this, to return Kahana Bay to its former glory. The area resorts, the County, and the State are all working together towards a solution. Kahana Bay and Kaanapali experienced severe winter storms the last three years. This year, Mother Nature has been kinder then the last two. The black sandbags were put in place to prevent further erosion and land loss. While we know it is not the most attractive, we also understand and accept the need. We have quit advertising our homes (and those we represent) at the Royal Kahana as beachfront but now promote as oceanfront. And, a better oceanfront view, you will be hard-pressed to find. If we are going to lose our beach, it happens between the end of October to early April. There are some days during the winter that we do have beach however we do not advertise it as beachfront, as we do not want anyone coming with a false understanding. Which is why we tell EVERY guest; in our welcome packet, in our advertisements, on our Facebook page, and on our websites that we have experienced beach loss. Our guests have been very understanding. This home offers a wonderful, aloha spirit our guests have come to know and expect. This two bedroom, two bath home is spacious and perfect for a family. There are beach chairs, a cooler, some beach toys, and towels, ready for a day of exploring. There are so many great beaches in the area, we encourage our guests to explore; Napili to the north just a couple of miles has famous Fleming Beach which is wonderful place for body surfing. There are many parks just to the south (one we like to across from the post office), for snorkeling and diving. In addition, Kaanapali great for people watching. New pool deck furniture is on order to replace the furniture that is there. The salt air does wear on the color. The new furniture will be nice; furniture will be placed on the oceanfront lawns. I am surprised to hear your comment about the BBQ’s. There are five grills down near the pool deck; they are maintained every morning by staff. We will certainly bring this to the attention of the onsite manager. I have ran out of space here but want to thank you! We do appreciate you!

Owner's Response: Mahalo Lauren, My parents have been on Island for most of January and February, they agree. This year has seen cooler temperatures and more rain. I hope that next time you travel over, the weather will be better for you. Thank you so much for choosing Royal Kahana 301. We would love to offer you our "ohana" friends and family discount on your next stay with us. Much mahalo, Shelly

Wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this condo. It was in a good location, within easy walk to Maui Brewing Pub (a must try), sushi, McDonalds, The Beach Grill and gas station which sold the essentials. The beach was closed due to erosion so we walked 2 buildings down to a decent beach which worked fine. Real grocery store less than 10 minute drive as well as plenty of other restaurants. I was excited by other reviews saying you can hear the ocean but I could never try it out as traffic was fairly noisy and work/garbage trucks would begin coming at 7am.

The condo was well laid out, kitchen stocked with essentials but we never cooked. Plenty of towels and beach towels for our 4.

We would definitely stay at this condo again if we have another chance to visit Maui!!

Amazing first time in Maui

  • 5 of 5

Upon arrival the unit was very private as it was at the end of the floor, very spacious with 1 king bed and 2 single beds (there was also a pull out couch that we didn't need to use). The unit had all the necessary beach gear that you would need as well provided the amenities to cook within the unit or the downstairs grilling area. Also, the owners were very prompt in communication and were able to answer any questions that arose. Would highly recommend.
