Our lovely one bedroom is situated on a half mile stretch of uncrowded white sandy beach in the quiet unassuming beachfront community of Kahana. The Royal Kahana Resort is a first class Resort Condominium conveniently located between the fabulous resort areas of Kaanapali Beach and Kapalua Bay. We are just a few minutes drive to the historic whaling town of Lahaina, the superb shops and restaurants at Whalers Village Shopping Center in Kaanapali, and the Championship Golf Courses at Kapalua.

Our condo is ideally located in a very private setting towards the beachfront corner on the 5th floor. Completely remodeled in November 2014! From both the livingroom and bedroom, it boasts MAGNIFECENT DIRECT ocean views with the Island of Molokai on the horizon. We even mirrored the livingroom wall, so YOU ARE VIRTUALLY SURROUNDED BY OCEAN!

Absolutely beautiful modern designer furnishings and decor. There is a full kitchen, washer, dryer, cable TV in both livingroom and bedroom , DVD player, FREE WIRELESS INTERNET ACCESS. FREE LONG DISTANCE CALLS TO MAINLAND AND CANADA,

King bed and queen sofa sleeper,easily accommodating 4 guests.

The master is huge, with it's own walk in closet! And it has it's own slider to the lanai.

Central air and ceiling fans provide maximum comfort. Very spacious, 778 sq. ft. plus lanai.


Amenities at the Royal Kahana include a large heated pool surrounded by a sundeck, and adjacent to a sunning oceanfront lawn area to take in the sweeping ocean views. Whether you choose to swim in the pool, or sun yourself at the pool deck or oceanfront lawn, or take a refreshing dip in the ocean...perhaps a little snorkeling or boogie boarding, or just a stroll down the white sandy beach, you will delight in the natural beauty surrounding you here at the Royal Kahana.

There are 4 gas-fired barbecue grills at the pool area, and a big poolside Cabana providing a dining area with captivating panoramic ocean views. Shaka Ice, located in Cabana, provides breakfast and lunch items.

The Royal Kahana is within a very short walking distance to many local shops, convenience stores, and great casual to fine dining restaurants.

Located directly on the Kahana Coastline, all shoreline is at the mercy of Mother Nature and the tidal ebb and flow of the ocean with its matching wave action. Thus, beach and/or beach access cannot be guaranteed at any time. But there are a couple beach accesses less than a 5 minute walk from the condo.

Our location makes for a perfect position to take in and experience the incredible sunsets, turtles, and during Whale Season, the most spectacular show of whales breaching right in front of our lanai.

Beautiful View But Condo Needs Some Attention

  • 2 of 5

We stayed in this condo for seven nights in mid January 2018. There were some general maintenance issues that we brought to the attention of the owner on the first day. The bi-fold door on the laundry room would not stay on track. Owner sent a repair man the next day and this issue was taken care of. The next problem, and by far the worst, was that the sliding glass door on the lanai could be closed and locked, but would not stay closed. A small gap would appear on the top right hand corner of the door. When the wind blew, this would result in a shrill whistling sound that would wake us up at night. The owners response to our request for a solution to this problem was to keep the door open at night. We were stunned by the suggestion. After three sleepless nights the wind finally subsided and we finally got some sleep.

The television instruction were very difficult to follow and the owner helped us with that.

The living room furniture looked attractive, but was very uncomfortable.

The kitchen, bathroom and bedroom were all fine.

We were very disappointed with the whole experience and wish there some recourse for the customer.

Owner's Response: I always welcome feedback from my guests. But in this case, I feel the guest had over exaggerated any negative aspect of the condo. I have had 95% 5 star reviews. The guest contacted me the day after he arrived. There was the issue of the slider whistling. I instructed him to crack the slider open just an inch, and the whistling would stop. He refused to crack it open, as he stated he would not feel secure. I told him there has never been a break in at the Royal Kahana exept on the ground floor units, when the sliders were unlocked. Really, who would scale a building to get to the 5th floor? But he chose to not crack the door open. Thus, sleepless nights. I offered him a 60% discount for those 3 nights which I feel was more than fair. That would make the rate $95/nt. But...He wanted a full refund for those 3 nights. After he received the 60% refund, he chose to wrote the review. None of my guests have ever had an issue with cracking the slider open an inch. I would invite any potential guests to read the reviews prior to this guest.

Wonderful Condo with Ocean View

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our one week stay here. This beautifully furnished 1 bedroom condo just north of Lahaina town is well stocked. Great restaurants are across the street as well as a general store. Sherrie is great to work with. You can’t go wrong if your vacation takes you here.

Clean, Updated, Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

After a long day of traveling, it was nice to walk in and have it feel clean and comfortable. Felt like our home away from home instantly. Everything was as it said and looked like the pictures. The apartment "whistled" if all the windows and doors were closed but if you crack one about an inch it immediately stops. We weren't in the room a lot since we spent every day exploring Maui. The location was great, walking distance to a few different restaurants and shopping and just a 5 min drive to the best snorkel bay on the island - Honolua Bay! Way better snorkeling there than on our snorkel tour boat! Condo had some snorkel masks, snorkels and fins but they didn't fit us and we rented some from Boss Frogs which was just across the street. Condo also came with beach chairs and a cooler. It was a good size cooler that we could pack all our snacks, drinks and lunch for the day as we drove around. This was essential for the Road to Hana. We went in the pool once, it was fine. It would be good for kids. We snorkeled in front of the condo and there were some fish, sea urchins and coral to see. Loved watching the sunset from the lanai. Perfect view! It was also nice to have the condo stocked with a few essentials like dish soap, TP, kleenex, ect. It was more than we would ever need. Basically just had to buy food. The kitchen was well equipped and had nice knives which pleased my husband since he did the cooking. We also loved the ease of the keyless entry pad. No key to pick up, drop off or keep track of on vacation! We had no issues with this condo, would recommend it and would love to come back!

The stay at the Royal Kahana was great. We spent more time on the balcony looking at the beautiful view than inside. The condo was really was nice. The location was terrific with plenty to do. We would definitely stay there again.

About Sherrie Kaufman

Originally from Colorado, I moved to Maui about 20 years ago, as the winters got longer and colder as time went on. I am so fortunate to call Maui home. I live in Haiku, on the north shore, ... is a bit more remote here, but I always look forward to a 'mini' vacation at my condo, where I can walk right out the door to the beach!

Sherrie Kaufman purchased this condo in 2006

Why Sherrie Kaufman chose Lahaina

It has always been about view and location. The most spectacular views you can imagine. This is undoubtedly the best location, as it is towards the oceanfront corner of the resort, no views of other buildings. Very private.

What makes this condo unique

Other than my specific unit being in truly the best location within the resort, The Royal Kahana Resort is impeccably maintained ,with beautiful grounds, oceanfront pool, central air, fitness center and sauna, underground parking. It is also very convenient to shopping and restaurants, with the Kahana Gatway Shopping Center just across the street!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Sherrie, you are consistently on top the condo rental business. As always, your condo is clean, well stocked and a wonderful place to stay. I appreciate your thoughts to all the detail in this place, and it is always a real pleasure to work with you. You are attentive to my inquiries, and I feel I have a good and trusted friend in you. I can't say enough how much I am impressed with you and how easy you always make my stays here in Maui. I have lost count as to how many times I have stayed in this condo, it is a sanctuary, a wonderful place to settle in for my stay. I hope to return again soon. Many Mahalos and Aloha!
