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...

I've stayed at Kahana Reef several times over the past 3 years. I have stayed in at least 4 different condos in the complex. I have also stayed in many other condo complexes on 4 different islands. Kahana Reef is exellent. The views are great, the location is great, the people are friendly, etc. Manager Tim is a good guy...

This complex is right on the water. Stand in the kitchen & look out the sliding glass door & you would think you were on a boat! Has everything you need, rooms are clean, kitchen well equipped & internet service. Just across the street is the China Boat restaurant with excellent food & drinks.

Up on the fourth floor and the end unit, we had our own little private oasis! Beautiful oceanfront view with waves breaking on the seawall out front and the island of Molokai in the distance! We loved sitting on the lanai every morning with our coffee and every evening for sunset with a glass of wine! The chairs on the...

Quiet and right on the ocean. The grounds are tropical, the views of Molokai are amazing and we saw whales and turtles right out front. Sandy beach just steps to the north. There are banana trees, orchids and plumeria trees all over this place. Close to restaurants and snorkeling.

We rented #113 and it far exceeded our expectations. Sitting right on the ground floor you walk out onto your lanai and watch the sunset. You leave doors and windows open feel the ocean breezes flowing threw the apartment and hear the sound of the ocean waves constantly. So relaxing and enjoyable! The unit we were in was spotless, had...
