We loved our stay at the Kahana Reef (Unit #422) condo! The location was excellent, away from the hustle and bustle, yet easy access to everything we needed. The people were lovely and so was the climate! Loved that we were at the end of the fourth/top floor of the complex and that our neighbor was a huge eucalyptus tree.... More

This was our first stay at Kahana Reef, but it will not be our last. The unit we rented directly from the owner suited our needs perfectly. The condo complex is certainly not fancy, but neither are we. Before arriving we were concerned about the pool (yes, the water was warm enough, in Feb. and felt great), and the lack... More

We visited this property from March 25/14 to April 1/14. I found the unit and property very nice. We paid a great rate and it was really nice to have a kitchen so we didn't have to eat out all of the time. We stayed in unit 103 and had the pool gate in front of our unit but looking... More

Visited Kahana Reef in early March and Kahana Reef is paradise; this was my 12th trip to Maui and this is the best place ever! The view to the islands of Molokia and Laniai are amazing and the sunsets are simply the best. We watched whales from the lawn, or lanai (patio) as they breached offshore. Turtles frequent the reef... More

After staying 7 nights at unit #207, I have nothing but great things to say about the room size, comfort, decoration, appliances and, above all, the best sunset view I have ever experienced from a balcony. It’s close enough to Lahaina and even closer to the great beaches of Kapalua and D.T. Fleming. Now, the important BUT; I’ve been a... More

I literally could hear the ocean crashing every night from my bed. It was amazing to have a true oceanfront view and to be just feet from the beach. I saw whales 24/7 from the lanai. I saw shooting stars and the moon over the ocean. It was spectacular. I would have given it 5 stars except there was 1... More

We stayed at Kahana Reef #322 in February 2014 and found it to be a great home base for a Maui vacation. The condo was just as it looked online and the view was fantastic. We could see Moloaki and Lanai from the balcony and the whale watching was fantastic. The condo was clean and provided everything one needs for... More

I've stayed at the Kahana Reef in different units for several years. I like the location a lot. The pool is a good size. The resort is nice and quiet with turtles and wind surfers to watch. No sandy beach but lots of lawn chairs and plenty of grills. Some units are very nice while others are quite sparce. I... More

Right on the water! Beautiful mornings and evenings on the lanai. Condo is super clean, modern and every amenity. Close to a grocery store and even a restaurant across the street in this quiet, residential neighborhood. Pool is small and not meant for kids games, but beach is steps from the condo and we enjoyed beach combing and even a... More

Spent 10 nights in unit #420 in Dec. 2013. Overall it has beautiful views & the condo grounds are kept up nicely. The unit isn't fully remodeled as lead to believe. It's only a fluff & buff to get it rented. To say it needs a coat of paint & some blackout curtains for the blinding light coming from the... More

Aloha and thank you for your review of the Kahana Reef unit #420. We agree that this unit has beautiful Ocean views and the property is well-kept. This unit has been remodeled with updates featuring a remodeled kitchen and bath, but it has not been advertised as “fully remodeled.” The photos on our website are accurate of the unit and... More
