My family really wanted a relaxing vacation on the beach, so we decided to book Unit #26 at Kahana Village. The condo is on the second floor of the building, and has fantastic view. The unit is only about 10 yards from the surf, and has a fantastic view of Lanai, Moloka'i, and the Au'au Channel in between. One of the best parts of our vacation was watching the humpback whales in the channel. If you're looking for a luxury vacation, there are lots of big resorts nearby. Kahana Village is for a lower-key experience.

The other guests and residents were really friendly, and hang out together at the pool, spa, barbecues, and narrow beach. The cove at Kahana has a reef that is suitable for snorkeling and surfing, but there are a lot of rocks where the surf hits the sand. Napili Bay (about a mile away) has more sand, so it's more popular for snorkeling. Most of the surfers enter the water at Pohaku Park to the south of Kahana Village.

It's really convenient that the condo has a nicely-equipped kitchen. On most of the days of our visit, we ate breakfast and lunch in the condo and went out for dinner.

Here are a few tips for your visit...

When booking, you'll find listings for Kahana Village on Vrbo and Airbnb, but it's better to book directly on the Kahana Village web site to avoid booking fees.

After arriving on Maui, stop at the Walmart or Target close to the Kahului airport to stock up on staples for the kitchen (which for us included beer). Shop at the Napili Market (about a mile from Kahana Village) for poke or other fresh food. If you're staying at Kahana Village, you're probably not looking for a really touristy experience, so you'll probably want to avoid the shops and restaurants to the south at Ka'anapali.

Room tip: We didn't find a binoculars or a telescope in the condo, so consider bringing binoculars for excellent whale watching.

Great location and views. Unfortunately we reserved unit #2 and it was nothing like the description. Couch and beds both need to be replaced. Dryer vent had fallen out and was being used without it. I would go back to Kahana Village but would do a little more research before choosing a unit.

Nice location but suit very run down. Dishwasher not useable, suite very dirty on arrival. Had ant infestation during the whole trip. Had to spend first day cleaning and hand washing all dishes. Manager did credit us $500. Was second time here but will not be back again. Too bad. Nice spot for families.

Room tip: Suite needs complete renovation. Invest in some new brooms and mops.

We reserved this place from our time share exchange. Big disappointment. One of the worst places I ever stayed with the time share exchange. First, the front desk doesn’t work full day all the time, well it’s not a regular hotel so it’s understood. So if you need anything “emergency”(means if you can’t find anyone at the front desk during the day) you need to go across the street to the other hotel.
Second, they DO NOT HAVE A REAL Air Condition. Only an old loud window unit located at the downstairs in a two bedroom Two level unit. About the two bedrooms, one bedroom is actually open to the downstairs living/kitchen area. So there’s no real “close door” privacy.... and the other bedroom, the door lock doesn’t work, can’t really close the door. Whenever there’s wind the door will just swing open, that was terrible when it happened in the mid of the night. The windows are so old. They are wooden panels that can’t really close all the way, and we experienced some very hash wind and rain. It was not nice. The hair blower was old and dusty as the picture shown.
Finally it’s the noise, the windows are all so old and thin so anything from the wind and the traffic to the noisy neighbors, we heard them all.

When we arrived and saw this condition, we asked the front desk to change the unit, they said they don’t have anything available...so here’s the review. Please don’t bother this place if you have any standard.

The environment and surroundings were clean and the staffs that worked there are all nice. But I wouldn’t stay there again.

Wow Wow Wow ! What a great palce to stay. We wanted a place for Thanksgiving to meet our son, daughter-in-law and 3 year old grandson and this was the perfect place. We had a 3 bedroom two bath unit #36 right on the ocean looking toward Molokai - what a view. The unit was one of the premium units and it lacked for nothing . A double wide lani was the center of family activity with a table and chairs for 6 plus a wraparoung couch for 6 and two lounge chairs right on the first floor steps from the beach. A washer and dryer and a wonderfully equiped kitchen made it hard to leave. The beach was never crowded with no more than about 10 people on the beach at any one time. The condo had beach chairs, ice chests and bucket and shovel and beach toys for the 3 year old. There was also a washer and dryer which are helpful with a small one.
The complex grounds were beautifully maintained and the large round pool and hot tub were great also. The Maitai party was fun on Wednesday night with a hula dancer and a singer overlooking the beach and the sunset. Most of the condos on Maui are in high rise units and many in very high density units. We appreciated the small complex and being really right on the beach. We did explore the island some , but mostly all of us were content right where we were. I would definatly go back to Kahana Village again.Vicky does a great job making you feel at home.

Room tip: The website is great and since each condo is decorated differently , the pictures are a big help.
