You are just footsteps from the ocean when you stay at Kahana Reef Resort. Plenty of parking, nice sized kitchen, amenities are supplied in the condo, and you are a few minutes from Lahaina. Excellent views of the sunrise and sunset! There are a few things I wish were in the condo such as an exhaust fan in the bathroom... More

Aloha Brian- Thanks for writing this review. We agree the views from the Kahana Reef condos are pretty spectacular. They are even better during Whale season. As for the air conditioning-believe it or not but the majority of vacation rentals on Maui do no have air conditioning as ceiling fans and the breezes from trade winds help keep us cool... More

My wife and I stayed here for 10 nights for our 15 years anniversary and the first morning we woke up to a beautiful scenery with rainbows across the sky(every other day) and a gorgeous view of the ocean and neighboring islands also we saw many sea turtles swam by. There's also a small beach area to swim. The condo... More

I flipping love this condo :) we stayed in 422 last spring and fell madly in love with the condo, the grounds, the view, the area.... Everything it offered We will ABSOLUTELY stay here again. There were 4 resident turtles out front each day near the ledge. The sunsets from the lanai is why you come to Maui.

We have gone to Maui for the last 35 years. We have stayed at many places on the island, but this one is special. It is quiet and friendly. It is away from the crowds, but close to secluded beaches. It has BBQ's and a nice grassy area to sit by the ocean. It is a great place for couples,... More

My wife and I stayed at the Kahana reef in April of 2016. It was a very nice place to stay. They have grounds crew out early every morning cleaning, picking up leaves and making sure everything is nice and clean. The Kahana Reef is not a hotel and each condo is individually owned so I wont review the condo... More

The unit that we stayed was pretty good. One of the things that I liked the most was the fact that was a floor unit. Very convenient for the kids to go to the beach and also to seat and relax watching a magnificent sunset. Sure, the unit is not new, but I had nothing to complain about.

This condo was right on the ocean with a small & secluded, quiet beach. Nice to be able to swim & lay out without a huge crowd around. The unit was on the 3rd floor & the view from the lanai was stunning. A lovely & relaxing place to start each day watching surfers & windsurfers & further out, whales!... More

My wife and I stayed in unit 314 for 10 days. The balcony is 40 feet from the Ocean and very few people walk out front so the view was always very private. We heard the Ocean waves and loved it. With the windows open the temperature inside was very pleasant. There is no AC but I'm not a AC... More

It makes be crazy when amateur travel or dining critics choose a place and then compare it to the place they were too cheap to pay for. Some of the reviews of this place are a perfect example of that. Kahana Reef ain't The Four Seasons nor do the condo owners pretend to be. What it is is a good... More

We picked this condo because all of the condos are ocean view. We were able to see turtles and whale blowing so, and whale tails crashing down. You really need binoculars but just sitting on the lanai and seeing whales is wonderful. The pool and outside area is very clean. The people are nice and friendly. The condo we stayed... More
