“beautiful grounds”
Reviewed June 25, 2006

We just got back from 9 days in Maui and we stayed at Kahana Village. It is beautiful! It is also very conveniently located. We stayed in one of the oceanfront luxury 3 bdrm units and it was lovely. Nicely appointed - well equipped. The complex is quiet and private and you really feel as if you are away from the huslte and bustle at some of the larger complexes. We used the kitchen and outside grills a few nights and that was very convenient - when we didn't want to dress to go out for dinner. Went to a local fishmarket where they marinated the fish for you when you bought it....great deal. Good ono!

Only downsides - it did get hot in the afternoons. Coming in from a day at the beach and getting cleaned up to go out for dinner was diffiicult due to the heat. That was really the only time of day it was really a problem. We had nice winds most of the time, but the bathroom areas really didn't get any breeze, so dressing and doing hair and makeup was troublesome. Only other thing we would want improvement on is the towel situation. Plenty of towels were provided, but a towel exchange would have been nice. Some days, we really didn't have time to wash and dry the pool towels before we needed to use them again. We had to do laundry pretty much every day to deal with the towels. An exchange program would have been nice since all the units seemed to have the same towels. Put so many towels outside your unit and recieve the same type of towel back. Just a suggestion - would have made it feel more like vacation!

I would stay here again. Not sure if I would stay in July or August when heat increases a bit. ALso - it seems the upper units do get quite a bit warmer if our friend's unit was any indication. Not sure I would stay there in June. But do recommend the place - beautiful, peaceful, secluded....beach was a bit seaweed infested -but plenty of nice beaches close by. Definitely get an ocean front so you can get those breezes!

We stayed at the Kahana Village Condos June 3-10 unit #24. This was our first visit to Maui and we could not have been happier with our choice of lodging. We were deliciously close to the ocean--a stone's throw from our lanai. The unit had all the amenities we could ask for, was very clean and quiet. The views were spectacular and the trade winds blowing through our rooms were wonderful. The beach area wasn't that great--especially if you compare it to Kapalua or Kaanapali--but we also had the beach to ourselves most of the time. It was fine for the kids to splash around in, but not good for snorkeling. Because of the central location of Kahana, we were within minutes to marvelous beaches in either direction. We have started our Maui fund and hope to return in three years (for my 50th b-day) and we will definitely stay at Kahana Village.

We just got back from four nights at the Kahana Village -- upstairs two bedroom, two bath unit. Furnishings were lovely, kitchen amply equipped - bottled water and coffee upon our arrival. The manager and staff could not have been more gracious. What a lovely complex - would definitely return. The views from our lanai were fabulous. The beach (as mentioned elsewhere) was not the best, but fantastic swimming beaches are within minutes.

We just returned from 10 fabulous days at the Kahana Village condo on Maui. I can't say enough about the rooms, location, and staff! This is an excellent spot if you're looking for a private, quiet location. We stayed in an oceanfront 'standard unit (#4, 2 bedroom) which was everything we expected and more. Our unit came equipped with some 'extras' (boogie boards, snorkel sets) and was very well appointed & clean. The management for this complex is second to none. The entire complex is very well run, clean with immaculate gardens, beautiful oceanside pool & BBQ area. We were there for Easter, and Paul & Vicky (the on site managers) hosted a lovely continental breafast on Easter Sunday! I researched several different condos in the area, and am so glad I chose this one. We plan on returning next year!

first, a bit of background. this was an extended family vacation which comprised of my parents, my wife and baby daughter (23 months) and my brother and sister. my parents have not gone on a vacation (with the exception of a few days here and there) for as long as i can remember (>10 years!). also, they are quite finicky people when it comes to accomodations as their are the proud owners of a motel in the canmore alberta region. suffice to say, they have high expectations when it comes to cleanliness (they've won a lot of "good housekeeping" awards).

about a month ago, we reserved two units (unit #18 for two nights and unit #31 for five nights). i had hopes on staying on an ocean front unit so hence the chance in unit mid-week. i was initially a bit worried about unit #18 because of the centralized location and its proximity to the pool and the office. i could not be more wrong. when we checked in, everyone was thrilled with the unit (3BR unit ground floor) to the point where we opted to stay in unit #18 for the full week! it was extremely spacious, very clean, and was surprisingly quiet. we even had excellent views of the ocean (albeit, i will admit there are units with better views). the pictures of unit #18 on the website simply do not do it justice. also, the landscaped grounds look way more gorgeous in real life than they do on the website.

i personally found our king-sized bed comfortable. i think my siblings found the two twins a bit uncomfortable but that's because they're used to sleeping in a queen-sized bed by themselves. my baby daughter also loved the unit.

i also want to say that paul and vicky were great. they were able to provide us a rice cooker (we suspect they bought it brand new prior to our arrival).

there are a ton of towels in the unit so don't bring your own! we noticed that some units have other peripheral things such as beach mats or boogie boards or even snorkel equipment (our unit did not). the landscaped grounds are amazing as well (my parents kept on cooing over the lush plants and how well-maintained it was... my parents plant literally hundreds of annuals every year on their motel property so they were quite impressed). the pool was just so-so in comparison to other hotels but it sufficed for our purposes. a delivered daily newspaper was a nice touch.

we're currently staying our second week in menehune shores in kihei (it is just myself, my wife, and our baby daughter as everyone else has headed back home) and we are already missing kahana village!

if you ever need any unbiased information, please let me know as i've leaned on numerous opinions on tripadvisor. happy findings!

Stayed at Kahana Village for 5 nights. Three couples in a three bedroom. Had a great ocean view, and watched whales from the lanai every morning. These condos are very quiet and private. Our unit was updated and in great shape. Ten minute drive to Kaanapali Beach, five to Kapalua or Napili. Had a late flight out our last day, and they put us up in another unit as late as we wished to stay.

This is a small and extremely well maintained complex. The staff is phenomenal, the grounds are beautiful, and our unit was even better than the photos! The condos are well supplied with every necessary cooking utensil and appliance. I would highly reccommend spending your Maui vacation here! I look forward to my next visit. Every unit has a fabulous ocean view and the lanais are fantastic!
