About David and Nancy Lowery


Renting our home with VRBO/Home Away is new to us. We thought we would make it available to guests so others can experience paradise as we have. We live in southern Michigan (Eastern Time Zone). We're both retired, I from Ford Motor Company and wife Nancy from a career as a Registered Nurse at a major Detroit area Hospital. We are blessed with two adult children who have successful careers and four grandchildren. Family is most important in our lives.

David and Nancy Lowery purchased this condo in 1990

Why David and Nancy Lowery chose Lahaina

Nancy and I first came to Hawaii in 1988 where we fell in love with Maui. Having traveled prior years to many other winter ocean destinations including all of the Hawaiian Islands, nothing compared with Maui. Twelve months a year of the most perfect weather on the planet. We knew this was meant to be our special place we wanted to be part of. Working with a local Real Estate broker we looked island wide at purchasing a beach front condo. We found the Royal Kahana and the purchase took place. Why the Royal Kahana you might ask? There were many reasons such as the condominiums are air conditioned and plenty of free parking. The Resort location can't be beat. It's a resort near the action of Ka'anapali Beach and Lahaina Town but not in it. The resort is quiet and relaxing compared to the mega resorts. The spacious beautiful grounds and pool area are the envy of other condominium resorts. At the others, try to find 4 lounge chairs available. No problem at the Royal Kahana. There is public bus service to the Royal Kahana but we recommend renting a car during your stay so you can fully explore the island as you wish. You are minutes away from more shopping, dining, sightseeing and/or activities than you can imagine not to mention all of the top entertainment on the Island. If you have an afternoon free, the drive north from the resort is stunningly beautiful. If you are a golfer, famous courses are within minutes.

What makes this condo unique

In the April 2017 issue of Hawaii Magazine, readers voted the Royal Kahana Resort a "Best Choice Top 10 Award" for longer term vacations on Maui. The Royal Kahana building is shaped so each condo has ocean views. It is one of few condominiums with central air conditioning. The floor plan of the individual condominium is perfect. Our 1 bedroom unit accommodates 4 people. Its perfect for two couples since the bath area can be closed off from the master bedroom for privacy. If you have a late sleeper in either the bedroom or the living room, access onto the Lanai can come directly from the bedroom or directly from the living room where the Queen size sleeper sofa is located. We are on the 9th floor which is above the roof line of the neighboring building. This opens up views of the West Maui Mountains and the Kapalua Resort area. The views you won't forget. A favorite pastime of ours is to sit on the lanai with a good book and a beverage and admire the island view of Molokai. Molokai is located across an ocean channel, a short 9 miles away. Watch the surfers, kite or sail boarders not to mention the Whales (in season), sea turtles and Dolphins at play. Proximity to the beach is such you'll hear the surf as you lie in bed at night. The building is made of concrete so its inherently quiet. We are close enough to the elevators for convenience but far enough so you won't hear the annoying arrival ding.

The perfect place to stay !

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I loved this condo. Like most people, you read the description .....view the photos provided, and select the place you would like to stay. Let me say this.......this place is even better than the photos depict. What you can not really see in the photos is the very high quality of everything. Cabinets, fixtures, carpet in the right places, and a great walk-in closet. The ocean views are very good from both the living areas as well as the bedroom. We did not cook while there, but everything you would need is there....cookwear, spices, etc. It is a short walk to the elevator which was nice. Using a door code is much easier than keeping track of a key. I like watching/listening to the news in the morning so the nice screens in the bedroom and living room was nice. There is a closet full of beach items to use. Resort location is good and close to anything you might need. I will not need to research a place to stay for our next trip. This is it !

Perfect vacation condo

  • 5 of 5

We just spent 3 weeks in this beautiful condo. The view from the lanai was awesome. We loved whale watching from there. The location is convenient to shopping, beaches and golf. Don’t hesitate to book this unit—money well spent.

Owner's Response: There is not a better place to relax and observe nature than from our condo lanai. The changing views of the island of Molokai located across the narrow ocean channel make for a beautiful backdrop. Your comment about the location is absolutely correct. Our location is perfect being just minutes from the action of Lahaina Town and Kaanapali Beach but not in it. Mahalo, David and Nancy Lowery

Fantastic Couples Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had a phenomenal time at this property which is outfittted with all high end appliances and decor. Concierge was helpful in planning our excursions. Quick drive to Napili beach. We were sad to see there is no longer beach access from The Royal Kahana however there is access about one block away.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review. We are pleased you enjoyed the comforts of our Maui home. The Royal Kahana Resort has so much to offer. Its superb location in West Maui allows you to be just minutes from the excitement of Kaanapali Beach and Lahaina Town, but not in it for a truly relaxing vacation. Mahalo, David and Nancy Lowery

Well maintained condo, fully equipped and fantastic oceanfront view!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the well equipped condo. The view was fantastic and just as advertised. We were disappointed that the beach has washed away and property is protected by huge sandbags to prevent future erosion. Also the cabana is closed and appears to be in disrepair. But, the pool and location was great. Owners were fantastic to work with...

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review. During last 2 winters the sea has had high surf damaging our shoreline and in one incident causing property damage. This is a new phenomenon resulting in beach erosion. The beach fully returns starting in April lasting until November. Experts claim it's the results of warmer water temperature in the southern Pacific Ocean. Our beach front gazebo had its foundation undermined resulting in damage to the structure. Plans are in place to remove the gazebo and make other arrangements for food services on the resort property but further back from the shoreline. In the winter there is beach located south of the Royal Kahana about a 5 minute walk.
