*Beach information

The beach fronting the Royal Kahana experiences seasonal ocean current changes that influence the beach’s physical appearance and size. During the fall and winter, it is not uncommon that these currents sweep away a very large amount of sand, which will gradually return back in spring and summer, based on the ocean's current activity. Our homeowners Assoc., The County of Maui, and the State of Hawaii are working diligently to return Kahana Bay to its full potential.

This circumstance, unfortunately, affects the accessibility of our valued guests to the beach. While there may not be, at times, direct access from the property to the beach during the fall and winter season, there is a public beach access within 5 minutes walking distance.

Our guests' safety is of the utmost concern for us. We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your understanding.

You can stay updated on our ocean front access by viewing our web page, rkmaui(dot)com, and checking the postings on the homepage. We update the postings as soon as we receive new information from the resort.

About Shelly and Dan Williamson, Owners/Agents

I am Shelly Williamson, co-owner of several homes at the Royal Kahana. My husband Dan and I manage 14 homes at the Royal Kahana. Royal Kahana #1019 is actually owned by friends of ours, Fred and Ronnie. Fred and Ronnie have owned homes on Maui for years and have just made their first purchase at the Royal Kahana. We think they've made a great choice. We love the Royal Kahana, the sense of family, the many amenities and the way all our guests feel welcome and like part of the family.

Shelly and Dan Williamson, Owners/Agents purchased this condo in 2015

Why Shelly and Dan Williamson, Owners/Agents chose Lahaina

We love the Royal Kahana. Our guests say it best...

D & S from Nevada...

Room was perfect for us, excellent view of the ocean and pool (not noisey at all). Could see the sunset from the lanai but the sun did not glare into the unit. Kitchen was small but workable, plenty of dishes and bowls. Owner was good to work with and allowed a early check in as we were coming from a different property and had frozen and refrigerated items that needed to stay cold. We will definitely stay here again next year.

NWA from Lincoln, CA.

This is a fabulous vacation rental. Clean, well maintained. The best view ever. Easy access to everything. The owners are the best to work with. We would go back in a heart beat. If you want an easy vacation..go here!!

It's amazingly quiet for the closeness to the pool and the ocean. You won't be sorry!

Jessica U.

Beautiful view! Beautiful beach!

The Resort was even better in person. The view was beautiful and everything worked great for my husband, two boys and I. The sun shines on the balcony in the afternoon and that's when we would have a beer and enjoy the view and maybe doze off a bit. Views of the beach and sunset were wonderful and lots of rainbows. The room came well equipped,except for laundry detergent which we had to go get after already going to the store, so don't forget that in your shopping list.

What makes this condo unique

Convenient, affordable, great staff and facilities. Near lots of restaurants and beaches, and a short drive to Lahaina or Napili. Kitchens are well stocked. Perfect base for exploring the island.

Free Parking, Free in-home secure Wi-Fi, Located right on the beach with a beach-side HEATED pool.

Great view of the ocean - could use some updates

  • 4 of 5

Pros: This condo was great for the price you pay. Beautiful view of the ocean, king bed, full kitchen, updated shower, 10-20 min drive to Ka’anapali Beach or downtown Lahaina.

Cons: no beach access (but we knew this coming in). The mattress could be replaced - felt like we were sleeping in a hole each night. Also, we had to open the back of the toilet and fix the chain every time we flushed it. We spoke to Dan about it on the first day but told him it wasn’t a huge deal since we could fix it each time. We were only in Maui 3 days and didn’t want to have to deal with a maintenance person during those 3 days.

Overall, it was a positive experience! It felt great not spending a fortune, but keep in mind that you get what you pay for.

Owner's Response: Jenny, Mahalo for your note, we always appreciate feedback. However, in hindsight, we should have insisted on having one of our maintenance team up to fix the toilet. We did set up a team member to come up but you asked us not to as you had it fixed. You left today, and a maintenance person has already attended to it; took all of 20 minutes. We will take a look at the mattress. That too is surprising as this home was completely remodeled recently. I'm so sorry that you found these two areas lacking but am happy you appreciated the location, the view, the shower, and kitchen. It is nice to have the kitchen to prepare meals and snacks when not taking advantage of the many dining opportunities in West Maui. The BBQ grills down near the pool are also a wonderful amenity, I hope you were able to take advantage of those. I do hope when you return to Maui, you will reach out. We do offer our returning guests a nice discount and we would like to make up for any inconvenience you may have experienced. Much aloha, Shelly

Would of been nicer if beach was available but can’t control the tide. We spent most of our time out and about anyway.

Owner's Response: Mahalo for taking the time to leave a comment on Royal Kahana 1019. We very much appreciate your choosing our home. This home is a beautiful, comfortable home with an amazing view. The Royal Kahana is an oceanfront resort. We too are saddened by the loss of beach DURING THE WINTER SEASON, which is why we make our guests aware of it prior to confirming their reservation. We do have a beautiful beach for most of the year and with the current work in progress, are confident that the Kahana Bay area beaches will be fully restored as soon as possible. We look forward to welcoming you back and extending our OHANA discount. Much aloha, Shelly

Perfect for a couple

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I had a great time for our first trip to Maui. We loved the ocean views, watching the surfers, the sunset and sporting whales, right from our lanai. The studio had everything that we needed. The pool was warm and clean and the bbqs were in good condition. We were disappointed that there was no hot tub or tennis but it was a small hiccup for us. There is a great coffee shop very close with fantastic coffee. It was a great way to start the day.

Overall we were very pleased with the accommodations and we would stay there again when we return to Maui.

Owner's Response: Aloha Kayla, I am not surprised you enjoyed your first trip to Maui; I love it more every time I go! Maui is addicting and I look forward to welcoming you back. The owners of this home, Fred and Ronnie, take great care to create a home that is inviting and yes, the view is amazing. Keep in mind on your next visit, there is a community tennis court (several), just a couple of miles away. It is a beautiful setup with restrooms and a beautiful ocean view. The Aloha Concierges’ desk in the lobby can help direct you. Much Mahalo, Shelly

so beautiful !

  • 5 of 5

Just left after a 2 week stay. We really started picturing ourselves living here ! the location was perfect. just a few minute drive to the bigger city. the beach wasn't open due to the high surf, but the pool was super nice and we walked to neighboring beaches. we loved maui so much that we ended up staying 3 extra days! my boyfriend has OCD with bathrooms, and he loved this one. (so weird, but true) the shower was really pretty. everything was so clean. having the washer/dryer was clutch during our long stay. the kitchen was spacious and well equipt. we cooked a few large dinners for our friends and had everything we needed. we will definitely be back! we both thank you so much !

Owner's Response: Aloha Kate, So happy to hear that this home met all of your needs for your stay. It is a perfect studio home for a couple or family with a small child to explore all that West Maui has to offer. We hope that you take advantage of our return guest discount in the near future. Mahalo, Dan
