Property type condo
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

Condo, Studio , queen bed, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

Welcome to my newly renovated oceanfront studio condo, located between Kaanapali and Kapalua and the warm waters of the Pacific Ocean. I just finished a stem to stern re-model with new tile, paint, crown moulding, TV, Beauty Rest bed, free wi-fi and more. The fully equipped kitchen is complete with appliances, a microwave, cookware, dishes and utensils. Linens and towels (as well as beach towels) are also provided. Central air and a ceiling fan will keep you comfortable throughout the day.

The crown jewel of the Royal Kahana (besides my unit, of course) is the large heated pool and spacious sundeck with plenty of lounge chairs on which to enjoy the view, a good book or a leisurely nap.

There are four gas-fired barbeque grills at the pool area, and a poolside Cabana providing a dining area with unmatched ocean views. The Activity Desk in the lobby can assist you with reservations for a luau, sight seeing helicopter tour, boating activities, restaurants and much more. Internet access and conference rooms are also in the Lobby. Morning coffee is served in the newly renovated lobby, which is also the location of the weekly complimentary Mai Tai party.

About Karla

I fell in love with Maui the first time I visited the island - so much so that I stayed for 10 years. I got a job in the visitor industry that allowed me to see paradise up close and personal. I've flown over waterfalls, biked down Haleakala crater, swam off the black sand beach and dove at Molokini. Although I've moved back to my home in Seattle, WA, I fly back to my island home every year to take a deep breath and feel the aloha.

Karla purchased this condo in 1995

What makes this condo unique

When I travel to Maui, my goals are sun and relaxation. I have recently remodeled my unit to create an open, breezy, island style atmosphere and to take total advantage of the ocean view. I can watch whales from my private lanai in the winter and enjoy the colorful sails of the windsurfers in the summer. There's no better place to feel the aloha.

DEC 2017 Trip

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this condo. The view from the balcony is exactly as shown, and was wonderful to wake up to. Most mornings we could see whales while having our coffee. The location was very good with easy access to Kapalua, Kaanapali, and Lahaina. Karla provided all the necessary information for a stress free stay. We highly recommend her condo.

The view, the view, the view need we say more

  • 5 of 5

The unit provided us with what were looking for when we booked.

First and foremost was the opportunity to wake up in the morning and be able to have coffee and watch the whales from the lanai. The unit was clean and had all the necessities. The photos in the listing were a true

portrayal of the unit. Thank you for sharing it with us, Karla.

The unit was clean it has a washer and dryer. It was nice being on the 12 floor. It has enough to make it a nice place to be for a small get away. The hideaway needs a new mattress. Otherwise good

Beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the Royal Kahana. We had a full window view of the ocean and of Molokai Island. We ate a lot of our meals on the balcony enjoying the various activities passing before us such as snorklers, paddleboarders, surfers, wind surfers, etc. There is a full stove and refrigerator as well as a microwave and coffee maker, as much cooking and cleaning as I wanted to do. Lots of places to bring in pre-cooked food, ie CJ's, Safeway, Beach Bums, etc.

We found the cloud transformations over Molokai fascinating. Only once in 14 days did we see the entire ridge of the mountains.
