“No need for a chill pill”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

If you stay here and can't relax then there is something seriously wrong with you. We stayed in E5 and while we were one row back from the beach we woke every morning to sea views and relaxing on the deck having breakfast was outstanding. We had fans and did not need AC although I thing the bedrooms had it. Everything worked ok and all good. The complex has a pool that is really nice to relax in after you have snorkelled with the Turtles every morning and evening, they come right into feed and this would make the trip for those that are first time snorkeler's. The ground staff were friendly and great to us, even though hiccups are the responsibility of Sullivan's they help out with minor matters and information. Can't speak more highly of them. This place is great for families with young kids or a group of friends. The apartment had information regarding the surrounding area and where to shop, walk and eat. I have recommended this place to friends and would I go again, you bet. Aloha

Room Tip: All apartments have a view as far as I could tell

We arrived in paradise to a beautifully appointed condo at Kahana Sunset (E9). Jenn made us feel so welcome and was very responsive to our questions. The condo was situated facing the ocean with only one other building between us and the sand. The amenities at the property were fabulous and very well maintained. The tradewinds are fabulous and needed because there is no A/C. We bbq almost every night and the facilities were perfect! Thank you Jenn for sharing your lovely home at a very fair price!

First time visitors to Maui. Traveled as a family. Our unit was F4. Was advertised as AC and Wifi. Ok the wifi that was there was so poor/weak that no device could connect. However, the wifi at the library on the property was wonderful. Great place to relax. The AC in the unit did not work. We bought a fan for our stay. The dishwasher didn't work properly as it would not complete a wash cycle. The dryer doesn't dry properly either. Have to stop and clean out the lint trap every 15min or so in the hopes that that would help. We had a little mouse visitor during our stay as well. The unit isn't well kept and it shows. When we called to get help we were connected to a voicemail that simply stated "leave a message". Sullivan Properties were pretty great at customer service BEFORE we paid. You live you learn I guess. Unfortunately we won't be back to this property and won't recommend this as a good place to stay. Good luck and be careful renting.

I've stayed at the Kahana Sunset many times and love it. WE usually take the lower end unit on the NW corner. It has a small pool with bbq area and its own private beach. It's a great place to come back to after exploring.

Room Tip: Book early!

We just returned from a 3+ week stay at Kahana Sunset. We rented a 1-bedroom condo from the Kahana Sunset Rental Program [advantage; on-site mgmt, daily housekeeping service]. Kahana Sunset has: beautiful grounds, maintained by an on-site landscaping staff, medium size heated pool, excellent barbeque facilities, "private" very sandy beach [good snorkeling, etc!]. Condos are all privately-owned. Kahana Sunset is about a 15-min easy-drive west of Lahaina, and close to shopping/restaurants/tourist spots. Resort is well-managed. An excellent get-away in "Paradise". This was our third visit to Kahana Sunset. No question that we will return.

Room Tip: ocean-front and ocean-view are best

We just returned from a wonderful ten day stay at Kahana Sunset. We (two couples and a two-year old) loved the safe and family-friendly complex, the pool and the beautiful beach on the property. The location - close to Napili, Kahana, Kapalua AND Kaanapali - was excellent. We were a stone's throw from West Maui's best beaches, including D.T. Flemming Beach, Kapalua Beach and Kaanapali Beach.We stayed in a two floor, two-bedroom, two bathroom condo in E building. The layout was excellent and even though we weren't right on the ocean, we had ocean views from our huge balconies. We appreciated the daily towel service and the helpful staff. We also appreciated the great community feel, the complimentary herb garden and barbecues, the book exchange and the activities desk. The only reason we are not giving a 5/5 for this property is because of the following:(1) we had to wait almost a week to get an Internet connection in our unit despite several requests to management and (2) the unit (E1) could have been cleaner. However, all in all, we would recommend Kahana Sunset if you want a large unit in a family-friendly property located in an ideal spot in West Maui.

Over the years we have stayed at the Kahana sunset many times. You can't beat it for location (Napili Bay area), wild life (sea turtles everwhere) warmth and view. Large beach right in front is easily accessible. They have a semi covered community lounge patio that overlooks the cove and provides a tremendous view. Pretty much every 2 floor condo has a view of the water and islands. 2 bedroom condos are spacious for 4 people with kitchen, dining facility and family room. This is not a high rise hotel; the buildings are 3 story set against the hillside and provide a wonderful view. Our go to place in Maui

Room Tip: Rooms vary in pricing according to proximity to the beach. But all are close enough. We were in the...
