This place is really something special - The Kahana Sunset Ocean Front was really all the value for the money - expensive but amazing. Maui has it all - wonderful beaches and rainforrest - it is like Paradise on Earth

Finishing 10 days at the resort in building D. We loved the place with the two decks, two bedrooms, parking at the door, laundry in unit, boogie boards and pool. The pool is nice but the beach has an undertow that makes it unsafe for small children. Fortunately, the beaches towards Kapalua have a smoother wave action for small children.... More

Aloha! We're so glad to hear you enjoyed your stay at Kahana Sunset. Our return guests, whether yearly visitors or after a 30 year break, are what makes Kahana Sunset feel like home. You are correct that at times there is an undertow on our bay and you were wise to find a more protected bay just a few minutes... More

We stayed here three night with other friends. Condos are pretty nice IF you rent one of the more expensive units facing the ocean so they get the sea breeze. We did not. Even with the multiple fans, our unit was hot, humid, and airless and we sweated through the night waking up tired and cranky. The lanais of the... More

Aloha Elizabeth, We're sorry to learn that you did not completely enjoy your visit. During most of the year, the trade winds help keep our units quite comfortable. But for those few times when the trade winds stop, it is helpful to have AC. If having guaranteed climate control is essential to your comfort, we do have units whose owners... More

There are so many pluses to this condo (C3) it's hard to list them all! The parking is basically right outside the condo door which makes it convenient not having to lug your baggage around. When we walked in we weren't disappointed. The place has been beautifully updated and decorated like something out of Instagram. The beds were so comfortable... More

Such a good location, makes up for the outdated condos. We saw numerous turtles at the secluded bay everyday. The pool is heated and nice for kids. There were a few "hitches" each day: water thru out resort off for testing, our parking lot unavailable. But mostly a great location.

We paid 1000 us dollars for 5 nights in that hotel. We are disappointed and disgusted as we planned that trip for our honeymoon. First the room/condo/flat (call that as you wish...) has a stunning view to the parking. Second zero air conditioning in the room...we suffered a lot our first night. At that price it's the shame.

NIce grounds. Clean grilling area. Covered sit down area with a beach view. Small secluded beach - kids loved it. Rock outcrop on the right side of the beach attracted lot of turtles. Service staff was good. Had some issues with the safe but were resolved promptly. Will come back again. Visit Napili beach it is excellent. Lot of waves.

When we visit Maui, Kahana Sunset is where we choose to stay. A laid back, quiet location, with beautiful grounds, modest units, great view of Molokai and a "private" beach. This is where we come to relax and recharge our batteries. Staff have always been very pleasant and accommodating. A neighborhood store is close by for anything you need. If... More

What a perfect little beach! The KS property is beautifully landscaped and has a gorgeous sandy beach. Last time we were there, there was some construction going on but it is all completed and now the place is heaven on Earth!

Highly recommend these condos to Maui travelers. Spacious and clean units with ideal grounds and location. Great private beach, pool, BBQs, and deck/reading nook. Very quiet. Great views from D units. Close to great snorkeling sites and market to pick up what your forgot at Costco. A real vacation!
