Amazing location in Kahana. Right on the ocean, where you can see turtles from the lanai. Molokai is always in full view. As soon as you unlock the door, you are in paradise. Sandy beach just steps away. The owners take great care in keeping the condo updated and pleasant, with their Aloha decor. All that you need for your beach vacation, including beach chairs and water toys. We've been coming here since 2006 and always have a wonderful time. Our home away from home on Maui.
First off, its Maui. You could sleep in a cardboard box and still probably have the trip of your life. Kahana Reef 317 was an amazing place with everything we needed. At first I was worried that there was no huge beach in front of the condo, but I promise you will drive to a bunch of different world class beaches and beautiful spots during your stay so pick a place like Kahana Reef 317 that is an awesome, clean, quiet place near a lot of really cool parts of the island.
This place had everything you need to have a great stay- great balcony with a view, pool for nice dip, outdoor grill for fish, laundry room, and of course great hosts! Dianne was super fast about returning my emails and answering questions.
One thing to note was no AC. I am from Tennessee and I am used to sleeping with a colder temp. After a few days we got used to the warmer nights and the condo has fans for airflow. Just be wary.
Overall, this place was an ideal space for our honeymoon, I totally recommend it!
Excellent location on the ocean that was really quiet, comfortable and convenient to everything! The owner Dianne was very helpful with questions and concerns. We definitely will be visiting again very soon!
The location and closeness to the water was great, view of the ocean and the turtles was very enjoyable. The condo was very well appointed with everything you might need to make your stay relaxing. We will be back again !
The location was just too perfect. We did local hikes such as the beach walk, the coastal trail and Kapalya trail. The condo had beach chairs, boogie boards, noodles, beach umbrella and a cooler. There was a filtered water picture which was wonderful to have as well. Plenty of towels, etc.... stores and restaurants close by and always enough free parking. WONDERFUL king size bed too. This is truely paradise, thank you for sharing with us! Vonnie & Richard Marks
This one bedroom ocean front condo has been recently updated. It had beach chairs, noodles, two beach towels, and boogie boards available during our stay. We brought binoculars but there was a pair in the condo. We did see whales in the distance and one turtle rested on the beach that is next to the condo complex. It has many kitchen utensils and plenty of cookware. There are also some movies and books. Wi Fi reception was very good during our stay. It is in a very quiet complex right on the water. Many of the residents we met are retired and stay throughout the winter. The pictures are very accurate.
The condo is within walking distance to Miso Phat sushi, Maui Brewing Company, and a Chinese restaurant is across the parking lot. We were able to take walks along the road behind the condo and it took us about 25 minutes to walk to a farmer's market. We drove our car to Office Road by the Ritz to walk the Kapalua Coastal Trail or to Ka'anapali to walk the beach.
Dianne, the owner, was very helpful and had great information to share. A great stay and I would recommend this condo for a quiet vacation for two!
This condo was very well equipped, comfortable, great view, good location. The condo is spacious for a one-bedroom unit and the view from the lanai is sooo great. The owner was also very helpful from the day we booked in communicating the condo info, surroundings, things to do, etc. Also, we were in a big hurry when leaving home so I left behind the info on how to access the key to the condo and she sent me the info in various formats to make sure I could read it on my phone. Thank you, thank you. We also liked that this condo property was not 1) so huge like some of the others with 500+ units, it made the setting more intimate and the neighbors within the complex are very friendly and invite all to a weekly Monday social time with potluck, 2) Not located close to all the other big properties, but yet a very comfortable walk to dining options and the Honokawai Farmers Market (a must to go to M-W-F mornings).
Only downsides - the pool is not really in the sun til after noon, so doesn't make it as inviting and the heat could have been turned up a bit. Wish there would have been some spices/herbs for cooking, but we did buy a "all in one" seasoning to have for cooking our fresh fish on the community BBQ, and left it behind for the next people.
