We recently stayed at this wonderful property for the second time. Yes, we returned. My review is broken into two parts, the property, and the specific condo unit. This is not a Hotel. We stayed in unit #114 rented through VRBO. First, Kahana Reef. This small condo complex consists of 88 units in 3 interconnected 4 story buildings. Most units... More

OK, turns out we were visiting while a hurricane was passing by the islands, so I guess the humidity was expected, but having spent the previous six days in an air-conditioned hotel room on the Big Island, it took a bit to get comfortable in a non-air conditioned condo. No fault of condo owners or the leasing company -- we... More

This rental was great. It had everything we needed and more. It was in a very convenient location naking it close to many things including the Maui Brewery. On top of the great location it had a great view and right next to the ocean.

The condo VRBO #307655 (unit #302) was exactly as portrayed in photos and other reviews. Kahana Reef is North of Lahaina, and there is not much within walking distance, but it was a great location for us. It has a full kitchen, spacious bedroom and bathroom (but no tub--nice shower). The bedroom is in the back of the unit, with... More

We've stayed at the Kahana Reef before in a different unit and really liked it. This unit is not as updated as some in the complex. Management is always good and the views are incredible. Overall, a good place to stay if you're not expecting luxury!

Great stay! Condo itself was just a little dated but we couldn't have loved the location more and the condo area was so quiet and the view was amazing. Clean and safe too. We would come back to this condo!

We have stayed at Kahana Reef # 422 twice and it will continue to be our go-to place to stay in Maui. The suite itself is quiet, private, extremely clean, remodeled and very well equipped. KR 422 offers “hotel standards” in its level of cleanliness and décor at a way lower price than comparable hotels. We dealt with Quam Properties... More

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

There's also a small beach area to swim. The condo... More
