“Not cheap, but very down market!”
Reviewed January 13, 2012

Do not stay here! I am amazed by the positive reviews I have read for this accommodation. It is not a bed and breakfast as described.The breakfast, comprised a cake/pastry/bun, sweet 'juice'/canned drink and a piece of fruit left in a basket during the afternoon for our collection from a communal area. The communal area was very unwelcoming. All doors off it have rules stuck on them. Our room was claustrophobic. We expected a kitchenette, but instead there was a fridge one side of the bed and coffee machine on a chest of drawers on the other side of the bed. The (plastic) cutery was placed in one of these drawers under the paper plates and paper cups. It wouldn't be too much to expect a B & B to provide enough coffee for the duration of the stay, but the 'complimentary' coffee in the room was enough for only 2 days! We asked for more coffee but this was ignored. We asked where we could dry our wet beach and bathroom towels. This was also ignored. The view from the room was restricted by overgrown bushes and shrubs. The hot tub was 'out of service' because some guests had 'abused' it! The garden was overgrown with no lighting so it was unusable in the evenings. The very small beach over the road was inaccessible without climbing over high rocks. The walk to the nearest beach was along a busy road. You defitely must have a car however, parking is difficult. We never saw the owners (possibly fortunately for them). This is the worst accommododation I have ever stayed in. You have been warned!

We stayed in the Royal Kahana condo, and it was just perfect! The lanai has a screen and you can leave the door open all night and sleep to the sound of the surf. The beach is about 10 steps from the door, and it's a great place to see those gorgeous Maui sunsets. If you want to be independent and undisturbed, this is the place for you - there is no daily housekeeping, but we didn't need it, and there is a wonderful fully established kitchen so if you wanted to bring in groceries and cook for yourself, it would be very easy. Wonderful shower head (most places have weak water pressure) and very comfortable bed. It's studio-style, meaning the bedroom is not separate from the living area, but again, that was fine with us. Lovely neighborhood, you can walk to a great local coffee place, Roy's Kahana, McDonald's and lots of other great places. Highly recommended and I will definitely stay there if I am lucky enough to get back to Maui!

We stayed in the Bamboo Suite and found it PERFECT for our honeymoon. The spacious room, refrigerator, large bed, and luxurious linens and towels (bath and beach) made us feel at home. We loved the location, away from crowded hotels and condos. We spent days without seeing another guest, yet had immediate answers to any questions we asked.
The beach at the end of the driveway was often empty and we often had the place to ourselves. We enjoyed beautiful sunsets from our bedroom and the breakfast provided allowed us the luxury of sleeping in and then eating in bed.
Our only disappointment came in not being able to stay longer!
We look forward to returning and would recommend the Maui Beach Ocean View Rental to anyone seeking a brief stop in Paradise.

We were pleased with our stay at the Maui Beach Ocean View rental. Our room and bath was comfortable, bright and clean. We enjoyed sitting outside in the evening before dinner at the sunset. We also enjoyed the peace of the beach available across the street. being a residential area the only recomendation is to have a car.... and watch at the coconut up on the tree when you park!

A truly wonderful stay!!

We stayed at number 404 at the Royal Kahana from May 25 to June 15. This is a very good location on the northwest side of Maui. The unit is on the north side of the building and has a surprisingly good ocean view for its location. The building is well maintained and has lots of parking. This a beach front property and the beach is sandy but the water clarity depends on the amount of waves which pass through the reef. The water can be quite clear about 10% of the time. Better snorkling can be enjoyed at Kapalua, and Hanalua Bay to the north, as well as Black Rock to the south. This unit has a free internet connection, most others charge $10 a day. You will love your stay here.

This is a prettyy good value. We got a small living room, a bedroom and a bathroom, all of which were very clean and comfortable. The shared dining room was always clean and open and never noisy, or for that matter, occupied. Breakfast was always waiting for us when we rose and was fruit and good pastries.
At a large advantage to us was the location. Being 10 minutes from town, or 5 from some dining and dive shops, yet away from any trouble with parking, traffic or noise was Ideal. I'd stay there again and not even bother with hotels. Have an actual low cost meal at the brew-pub, less than 5 min away- good enough that we frequently went back.
The local beach is small, but a 2 minute walk. In a 15 minute drive you can hit the larger public beaches if you want something more. , walk out the front door, past your parking spot and car (10 yards) cross the road (10 more yards) and walk down to the beach for sunset every night (20 more yards) it takes less than 1 minute... less time than it would take to get in an elevator somewhere else. No need to pay $200++ a night for a crowded hotel with loud hallways. Relax here instead.

Room Tip: Several rooms here- depends on your needs

While the room was acceptable and the location was fine, the service was horrible! Firstly, they held themselves out as a bed and breakfast, and nothing could be further from the truth. We were given a single cheap pastry along with a sugary juice and piece of fruit. The tiny amount of coffee was apparently "complimentary." We had enough for a day or two after which we naturally requested some more. Upon doing this we were rudely told that we had no business expecting more - "couldn't we read the note that said that it was complimentary." He then proceeded to lie to me and tell me that he was not the proprietor that someone else ran the place. They never once bothered to introduce themselves to us, or welcome us. The only other time we saw them, prior to the coffee fiasco, they merely grunted a hello. It was as though they thought they were landlords and we were problem tenants. I have never had such an awful experience at an accommodation. DO NOT COME HERE AND SPREAD THE WORD.
