“Beatiful view of the Pacific, Molokai and shoreline trees.”
Reviewed June 24, 2005

My wife and I stayed at the Kahana Reef in March of 2004 for our anniversary. We were on the third floor, very comfortable with incredible views. Spent a very romantic and active week, had great weather, and met numerous people just enjoying life.
The condo needed some renovating, but for the price, location and view it would be very difficult to beat the overall time we had.

We rented rm. 220 on the 2nd. floor. My decision was based on the reviews, the scenery is great, never thought we would be robbed. On our last day, May 24th., while we were sleeping, someone climbed up our 2nd. balcony & took everything that was on our kitchen counter. The residents were very kind & sympathetic, I was informed by them & the police dept., that there have been several breakins here, & windows in rental cars have been smashed out. The owner of the condo didn't even respond, his ins. Co. states he only has liability ins., so my ins. Co. had to pay for my losses! There is no security there, even though the view is beautiful, I would be afraid to return under these circumstances. I was also informed a New York police officer was also robbed!

We loved staying at Kahana Reef! The view is breathtaking! We watched whales and sea turtles from our 3rd story lanai. Sunsets were beautiful.
Highly recommended!

We stayed in Apartment #120. It was very clean when we arrived and the cabinets had been newly painted. All fixtures, even though an older condo, were in good working condition. We expected some bugs because that's just part of being in Hawaii (We know because we used to live in Hawaii). I only saw one cockroach and very few ants the entire time we were there. These are decent sized one bedroom apartments with full kitchens. No A/C but the ceiling fans and tradewinds were sufficient for cooling the apartment. The ocean was right at our back door. We had the privacy that we wanted because this is not a crowded hotel or resort. Nice and quiet. There is a small sandy beach next to the property. A great value for the price. We had to go to other places for snorkeling, but other than that, it was just what we were looking for on this trip.

Very nice, well appointed condos with truly exceptional views. The scene from the balcony is spectacular. We were there first week of June and still no need for A/C. Nice pool, but no swimming beach in immediate walking vicinity.

It is an excellent place, with one of the greatest views and proximity to the ocean, the rooms are good and well maintained too. there was no need for air conditioning as there is a lot of wind flowing and its cool and they do have fans.

All in all it is a place if you are looking for breathtaking views of the ocean

My wife and I stayed here in February of 2004. The building is a little older and there is some very minor wear but it was clean and the furniture was in very good condition.This IS ocean front property. The ocean was no more than 30 feet from our lanai. Close enough to watch the whales in the distance. The view is incredible and what a treat to fall asleep to the sound of the waves.Parking spaces are good for mid to compact cars but larger vehicles will find the spaces a little tight.I would not hesitate for a minute to return.
