My wife and I loved, loved, loved this place! We aren't into the big, impersonal resorts on Kaanapali that are set back so far from the beach and super crowded. Kahana Reef is very rare in Maui in that your suite is only 20-30 ft from the water. From our lanai, we saw countless turtles swim by daily, whales on...

this is an amazing place. You have to book through Sandy Szymanski on vrbo. One bedroom one bath unit with decent size well equipped kitchen. The view from the balcony is definitely worth a million dollars.

We stayed at Kahana Reef for 1 week in October 2016. We had a great time. The view from the living room and lanai are amazing. The property is extremely peaceful, quite and well manicured. Our particular condo had been renovated and was very nice. The furniture was nice. The kitchen was updated with granite counters, new cabinets and was...

This beach is right I front of our resort..it is relatively short but easy to get to. There's a reef a few hundred feet out and the waves break there at all times.. we have been here for over a week and have never seen more than a handful of people using it.. other than at sunset when just about...

This is a condo on the northwest of Maui. Every unit has ocean view as they are long, but somewhat narrow. Door on street side, lanai on ocean side. This unit was well setup for a couple and appears to have been recently redecorated. It's a mostly quiet building and is only four stories high. There are a couple of...

Small complex of 3 connected buildings and a laundry center. These are true 1 bedroom units, not soji doors or loft bedrooms. All units are oceanfront with a sea wall. There is access to a small beach and rocky point on the north side of the property. Each unit is individually owned and furnished. Some are updated and others are...

Aloha! I just got back from my amazing Hawai'i trip and was fortunate to be able to stay at Unit #110 at Kahana Reef, it was perfect. Ocean views, and an almost private beach few steps away. The unit itself was very clean and organized, complete with everything you could think of - from the kitchen supplies, bath towels and...

Was everything we dreamed about and more. Absolutely loved the fantastic ocean front view, and watching whales every morning from our Lanai. The kite surfers and paddle board enthusiasts were also fun to watch. Room was great with all the comforts of home. And my wife was happy with the mattress as it was very comfortable.

View was really nice. Basically water that starts at your doorstep and a few surfers and whales for variety. Also on the plus size was the size of the unit and the relative affordability. Now for the negatives. The photo attached shows one if the kitchen drawers. Seen better days for sure. Also, upon check in there was only a...

The condo we were in was updated clean and had direct ocean views as does all the others do. The sun is great to watch from sunrise to sunset. Even though it is in a tourist area it is not packed and is central to the best beaches such as napili bay or kapalua bay for great snorkelling. Or a...
