About this listing
Our “Maui Getaway” is located in a very peaceful setting on the top floor of an oceanfront condominium complex. Relaxing on our private lanai enjoying some Kona coffee is the perfect way to start your day. You never know what you will see while watching the ocean reef from here: humpback whales during the winter season, dolphins, turtles, eagle rays, and possibly a Hawaiian monk seal, which is a very rare site. This is also an ideal spot to enjoy the sunset over the island of Lanai or simply sit back and watch the kayakers, snorkelers, swimmers, and sometimes even surfers.
Kahana Reef has an oceanfront pool just down the sidewalk and 2 Jenn-Air gas grills by the lawn. There are elevators either direction from our unit for easy access to the top (4th) floor. There is a laundry room onsite with 6 washers & dryers.
If you are looking for a quiet haven or a romantic escape this is it! The sound of the waves and the gentle breeze of the trade winds are sure to lull you asleep at night.
The majestic island of Molokai is even visible from the kitchen, which is complete with pots, pans, dishes, glasses, grilling utensils, coffee maker, etc. There is a flat screen TV, DVD player, coolers, games, books, DVD’s, & CD’s for your enjoyment. In addition, there is a secure high-speed Internet connection in the condo.
Shopping, restaurants, and sandy Kahana Beach are all within walking distance. Kahana is the perfect location with championship golf courses and some of “Americas Best Beaches” within a 10 – 15 minute drive either direction from the complex.
So what are you waiting for? Escape to our “Maui Getaway” and you are sure to return, as do many of our guests.

This is an excellent condo in a fabulous location. We had a great time and would certainly stay here again. The view is awesome, we saw rainbows every morning and turtles swimming by regularly. There is no AC but even though it was July we did not miss it at all. There is good cross-ventilation and a steady breeze, and ceiling fans in the living area and bedroom. The complex is very friendly and we had several nice conversations with the residents. We made good use of the Jenn-air grills, cooking up steaks and burgers from the Safeway down the road in Lahaina and watching the sunset over dinner. The pool is on the small side but spotlessly clean and refreshing. The groundskeepers do an excellent job maintaining the place. Parking was easy and convenient. There is a little swimming beach right next door. There were a number of nice touches provided, including a couple of beach chairs and boogie boards. The convertible sofa was comfortable for sleeping to the sound of the waves. There is a TV and DVD player but no stereo to plug your music into. While we were here we went to the Wednesday night Slack Key Guitar show at the Napili Kai just up the road and really enjoyed that. Our only problem was a minor one, the wifi, which was extremely slow. Like dial-up speed. I ended up using data on my phone as that was much faster (fortunately there is good coverage from AT&T).
Overall this is an outstanding rental at a good price, the best place we have rented on Airbnb.
Sue was very accessible and helpful throughout the process. I highly recommend renting properties from Sue in the future and plan to do so myself. This particular apartment was AMAZING and even better than described! Sleeping each night listening to the ocean was heaven, and the views of the ocean were spectacular.
The neighborhood itself had everything I needed within walking distance (There's even a great Chinese restaurant directly across the apartment complex itself). And having spent the last seven years in New York City, I wasn't used to just how nice everyone was! :-)
I fell in love with everything about Maui that I'm actually attempting to move there by summer's end. Do yourself a favor and stay at Sue's place. You WILL NOT be disappointed!
Nothing but comfort. Everything about the condo was great. From the amazing view to the comfortable bed, all was enjoyed by my wife and me. It had it all. Even things we didn't know we'd need were there. Cooler, binoculars, wine opener, etc. Thank you. Now if we could only get out of this aging hotel in Kona and go back.
By far the best place I stayed on my trip to Hawaii which included three Airbnb spots! This place is right next to the ocean. The grounds lead to a beach which had maybe two other couples on it when I went out to snorkel. Very secluded. Sea turtles were feeding and swimming around every day right by the stone wall that surrounded the grounds. The view from the lanai (balcony) is breathtaking. You see two of the other Hawaiian islands right there. The place itself was very clean and has a full kitchen, so you can cook sometimes instead of eating out every day. Sue was an amazing host. Very communicative and responsive to any questions. No surprises!
This was the best place we stayed our whole trip! The view was amazing, the apartment was beautiful, clean and had all the right little things you need while traveling. The bed was really comfy, you can see whales from the balcony! and it just really felt like home. We HIGHLY recommend anyone staying here! You will love it!
What a great spot! We really enjoyed Sue's place! The view was incredible, the location was convenient, and the condo was well stocked. Every morning we were able to walk to a good local coffee shop. Also within easy walking distance was a convenience store with a decent amount of groceries and an inexpensive place to rent snorkel gear. The sunsets were beautiful and the facility was very quiet (which we liked).
Two minor things. One is that there wasn't a lot of information in the condo (ie checkout procedures, location of trash & recycling, etc.) Also, there were no beach towels, which wouldn't have been an issue at all if we had been able to get clean towels during our stay. But instead we were using our bath towels at the beach, and they get pretty sandy and dirty quickly that way. But really, this was a very minor issue.
We would definitely recommend this to others (probably parties of 2 but no more) and hope that one day we can come back! Sue gave us lots of great beach gear including chairs, coolers, ice packs, boogie boards and beach mats. All very much appreciated!
thank you so much for making our Christmas stay such a delight!
About the Host, Sue
Aloha ... I lived on Maui in the 90's and fell in love with the island. I currently live in Colorado and like to hike, camp, and be in the great outdoors. My condo in Kahana is truly oceanfront ... I love listening to the ocean at night.
