About Karri Ayasanonda

I have resided on Maui for the past 12 years and manage several vacation rentals with my family.

Karri Ayasanonda purchased this condo in 2014

Why Karri Ayasanonda chose Lahaina

I manage this property for my in-laws who live in Honolulu. We chose this property for the great location near many great beaches and restaurants. The property is close to Lahaina and Kaanapali, yet in a much quieter area.

What makes this condo unique

Royal Kahana is a beachfront property made up of just over 200 units. There are several restaurants and shops within walking distance. The views of the ocean are fantastic, we can sit on the balcony and watch the whales playing off shore, occasionally spot pods of dolphins, and often a turtle or two in the surf.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Fabulous place to "come home" to after our adventures. Having been here before we were looking for some new stuff. 1st leaving here and onto highway-go left and wait for gorgeous views. All day at Molokai & Lanai were both favorites. They have a new tour down into the Hansen's community. Whale watching in season a must! It was great to not have to run out and buy everything Great room, nicely furnished. We'd like to stay here again. Plenty of room for two.

First time in Maui

  • 5 of 5

Great little condo just 10 minutes outside of Lahaina. It had everything we could have needed and more. Since my husband is celiac it was great to have the kitchen available to cook the majority of our meals at home with! We really enjoyed the BBQs they have on the property as well. The bed was very comfortable and we enjoyed falling asleep to the sound of the waves rolling in at night.

The views are amazing from the lanai - we had breakfast and lunch there most days, watching the whales and turtles that swam by.

The only small drawback is there isn’t a beach directly on the property anymore due to erosion, however, I think it was a benefit in that we went exploring more and we were never on the same beach twice - there are so many great beaches nearby or further out if you wanted to go for a drive. We enjoyed snorkelling with the gear provided and had a nice little beach bag to pack with us every day.

I would definitely recommend Karri’s place to anyone who wants to explore Maui from without being in a big resort. We are already dreaming of our next trip to Maui.

Mahalo Karri for a wonderful stay!

Loved !

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay here! The condo was everything we needed and more. The bed and pillows were like sleeping in the clouds! Clean, comfortable and a very nice place to end our 3week trip! The property manager was very welcoming and left great information for us for our stay. Would definately recommend this unit and will hopefully be staying here again.

The only think I would note is that the unit is in Kahana which is north of Lahaina about 10mins by car. I was under the impression that it was in or closer to Lahaina. But the location is still great!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review. I am happy that you enjoyed your visit, our unit, and the view. Our property is located in Kahana, which is a 10-15 minute drive from Lahaina town. All locations on the West side of Maui have a Lahaina address, which can be a bit misleading. We are located in a more residential area. Thank you again and we look forward to your return! Kind Regards, Karri Ayasanonda & Family

Wonderful stay in a beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5

This stay was absolutely wonderful! It is close to everything in West Maui and the host, Karri, is very responsive. The bed was comfortable and they had quick wifi, cable, and a dvd player. The lanai oversees the ocean which has some pretty waves regularly.

The kitchen was fully stocked with plates, glasses, silverware, pots, and general condiments. There were plenty of towels including some great beach towels. There were chairs, bamboo mats, chairs, an umbrella, and snorkel equipment.

I highly recommend, it was a very nice stay.

Perfect location and well appointed!

  • 5 of 5

We chose to stay at the RK 805 for our first ever trip to Hawaii as it appeared to have everything we needed. This was definitely the case, and once we arrived we knew we made the right choice! The location is far enough away from busy Kaanapali and Lahaina , but still a very short drive to both. The kitchenette was stocked well and we enjoyed cooking most of our meals there. The view of the water is pretty good and we even saw a large sea turtle from the lanai. Parking was plentiful on the property and we felt safe. The abundance of restaraunts and amazing beaches close by made us feel we were getting great value for the stay. We will definitely consider returning on our next voyage to Maui!

Thanks Karri

Great value for an ocean view property

  • 4 of 5

Property has a lovely ocean view. We slept with the slider open and enjoyed the ocean breezes each night we were there and were very comfortable. That said, in CA I typically live most of my life in Air Conditioning. Condo is nicely located, and so central to most places we wanted to be. Enjoyed following Karri's advice on restaurants (and really all advice he gave!) and we loved the sushi place across the street. Karri is very attentive, and quick to respond and the condo is very well stocked, is quite comfortable, and he seemed to pretty much think of everything a guest might want for a nice stay. Anticipate being a "repeat customer".
