Two condo buildings with comfortable 2/2 units with big lanais. You’re right above thin, sandy Kahana Beach (which may or may not be present during winter months). All have good ocean views, and the staff is friendly. Most units have shoji or pocket doors shutting off one bedroom, but otherwise, they’re nicely furnished and clean with large windows to overlook the water. They have a function room, which can be used by guests for anniversaries and such. The lanais in the A building get a lot of sun in the afternoon (versus the B building) and have more direct sunset views. Weekly housekeeping for stays of eight or more days. In all, a good value for the money. 2/2s (1,066–1,250 sq. ft.) are $109–$474. 5- or 7-night minimum. A $45 damage waiver is added to your cleaning fee.

Most are long-term condos here, but a few are vacation rentals. Near a shallow beach, it’s a quiet property with buildings 2 and 3 closest to the ocean. Units vary, but all are well-maintained. Some have A/C in bedrooms only, some have A/C throughout, some have no A/C. 3/2s (1,448 sq. ft.) and 3/3s (loft style at 1,490 sq. ft.). Rates have gone up since our last edition and are $399–$1010. 5- or 7-night minimum.

Kahana Reef

This condo property is near the ocean, but a seawall prevents you from seeing the shoreline. (A small detail, granted, but it takes away from some of the oceanfront experience.) Higher floors have better views. Free Wi-Fi in most; free room safes in some. Grounds are tidy but basic. Some units have been upgraded; others feel very dated. Rates for 1/1s (556–661 sq. ft.) are $125–$350. 5- or 7-night minimum.

Kahana Sunset

Visit website

The only condominium resort on Maui that’s on a semi-private beach since public access to it isn’t very practical. The beach is very sandy and clear most of the time with good swimming when calm.

The resort has reasonably sized 1/1s downstairs and oddly laid out townhouse-style 2/2s on the second floor with lots of stairs. Oceanfront two-bedroom units (Buildings A & F) have an additional bath. Though the buildings aren’t overly attractive, the resort exudes a good feeling and is quiet for its size. The large lanais have no privacy, despite their brochure’s claim of “private lanais.” (Perhaps they mean others can’t walk on them, but your next door neighbor can see you through the wide slats.) Building F is our favorite with the beach two steps away from the ground floor units.

Kahana Village

Wonderfully spacious condos, high-grade appliances and a great oceanfront location with lush grounds. Units have lots of glass and an open feel, but they are still private if you want. The ground floor units are a massive 1,700 sq. ft. 3/2s with nice kitchens, and the additional bedrooms are also good-sized. The shoreline from the ocean front units seems delectably close. Units 31–36 are considered “oceanfront prime,” but we feel that might be a bit generous compared to others in the same category. Upstairs units are 1,200-sq.-ft., 2/2 townhouses with the second bedroom as a loft—not quite as desirable as the lower units. All units have nice, large lanais. They have three categories: standard, deluxe and luxury (the latter completely upgraded). Since the overall quality at the property is pretty high, you will probably be just as happy in a standard unit for less money (though they have only a couple of those).

Royal Kahana

Visit website

This is a boomerang-shaped condo building, so the center oceanfront 2/2 units and the closer-to-ocean 1/1s have the best ocean views compared to the studios farther back in the building. All floors above the second are considered ocean view. Rooms are reasonably sized and the décor varies, but they could be cleaner and many could use updating. The wind can make an annoying sound as it howls through the closed window frames. They’re on skinny, Kahana Beach, which is mostly gone now. Studios (431 sq. ft.) are $345–$365, 1/1s (777 sq. ft.) are $395–$455, 2/2s (1,141–1,287 sq. ft.) are $538–$615. 2-night minimum.

Sands of Kahana

Visit website

This four-building condo complex is a mixed bag of timeshares and vacation rentals. The buildings feel institutional and don’t seem as well-maintained as others in the area. The hallway floors, walkways and pool decks could use a good power washing, and on a recent visit there appeared to be lots of little things broken around the resort. The elevators can take an exceptionally long time during busy hours.

On the positive side, the rooms are very large, and the layouts are pleasing, though slightly odd in places. Some bathrooms have showers and tubs with an ocean view. Stick with buildings 2 or 3 for the best views. Units vary from nice decor to so-so. Some units have central A/C. They’re on skinny Kahana Beach. The water is usually pretty clear, and the sandy beach is good for swimming when calm.

Valley Isle Resort

A mixed bag of long-term and vacation rentals at this condo property. It’s a T-shaped building that has most units (04–10) directly facing the ocean, with units ending in 10 very close to the water. Other units have a more oblique view of the ocean. One-bedroom units on the ocean side have bedrooms facing the water—just slide open the doors and fall asleep to the soothing sounds. Decor varies a lot, from updated to not-so-much, but all units are clean and make good use of the space. Free room safes in some. Washers/dryers in one- and two-bedroom units; studios use coin-op. Studios (480 sq. ft.) are $125–$205, 1/1s (768 sq. ft.) are $155–$305, 2/2s (1,040 sq. ft.) are $190–$385. 5- or 7-night minimum.
