We stayed at Kahana Reef from the 1st to the 11th of November 2016. It was an awesome location, view, and room. The kitchen was so useful, they had towels for us, cooler for lunches on the go, the balcony was great, living room was nice, the bed was not that comfy nor was the couch but we got used...

Up on the fourth floor and the end unit, we had our own little private oasis! Beautiful oceanfront view with waves breaking on the seawall out front and the island of Molokai in the distance! We loved sitting on the lanai every morning with our coffee and every evening for sunset with a glass of wine! The chairs on the...

Quiet and right on the ocean. The grounds are tropical, the views of Molokai are amazing and we saw whales and turtles right out front. Sandy beach just steps to the north. There are banana trees, orchids and plumeria trees all over this place. Close to restaurants and snorkeling.

We rented #113 and it far exceeded our expectations. Sitting right on the ground floor you walk out onto your lanai and watch the sunset. You leave doors and windows open feel the ocean breezes flowing threw the apartment and hear the sound of the ocean waves constantly. So relaxing and enjoyable! The unit we were in was spotless, had...

We recently stayed at this wonderful property for the second time. Yes, we returned. My review is broken into two parts, the property, and the specific condo unit. This is not a Hotel. We stayed in unit #114 rented through VRBO. First, Kahana Reef. This small condo complex consists of 88 units in 3 interconnected 4 story buildings. Most units...

OK, turns out we were visiting while a hurricane was passing by the islands, so I guess the humidity was expected, but having spent the previous six days in an air-conditioned hotel room on the Big Island, it took a bit to get comfortable in a non-air conditioned condo. No fault of condo owners or the leasing company -- we...

This rental was great. It had everything we needed and more. It was in a very convenient location naking it close to many things including the Maui Brewery. On top of the great location it had a great view and right next to the ocean.

The condo VRBO #307655 (unit #302) was exactly as portrayed in photos and other reviews. Kahana Reef is North of Lahaina, and there is not much within walking distance, but it was a great location for us. It has a full kitchen, spacious bedroom and bathroom (but no tub--nice shower). The bedroom is in the back of the unit, with...

Mahalo Steve! Thanks for the wonderful compliments of the Chase 'N Rainbows management team. We currently manage almost 20 vacation rentals at the Kahana Reef. This resort is one of our staff favorites. You simply can not beat those direct ocean front views.

We've stayed at the Kahana Reef before in a different unit and really liked it. This unit is not as updated as some in the complex. Management is always good and the views are incredible. Overall, a good place to stay if you're not expecting luxury!
