My wife and two young sons and I rented this unit for a week over the holidays. Since we are both divers and we wouldn't think of leaving our kids home while we're off having fun, we wanted to find a place with more elbow room than your typical hotel room. Royal Kahana #512 couldn't have suited our needs better. It's a great size for a family of 4, has a stellar view of Kahana beach and the island of Lanai, and is perfectly located near all of the fun West Maui has to offer. 15 minutes into downtown Lahaina. Times Grocery Store with pharmacy 5 min away. About 50 or 60 minutes to Kahului airport depending on time of day.
The best thing about this property is you're not spread all over the universe like at a big resort. Your car isn't a two mile hike away. Neither is the pool! There is a decent little gym in the basement that kept my workouts on track during our week. Unit 512 is located right by the elevator too for extreme convenience! Unit comes with a closet full of useful stuff like two full snorkel sets, a body surfboard, and a couple of sand toys. Beach towels are provided in the unit too, and you have a USABLE kitchen and washer/dryer!! Parents out there, I you know what I'm getting at here -- this place is perfect! The furnishings are relaxed/casual and tropical in theme. It's not so super fancy that you feel like you're going to mess anything up by breathing on it, but everything is clean, and in great working order. The owners, Dan & Shelly were so friendly and helpful, and provided every detail of information we'd need to make a great vacation a reality!
You can't do better with this condo. Perfect in every way. Roomy clean. Beautiful view. Convient and all around a perfect place to stay on Maui. We would come back here easily.
I am writing this as sit in this rental, 512 at the Royal Kahana. This is a lovely condo with a great view. It has too many doors!!! Of course, that is just part of the design. The faucet in the bathroom is like a squirt gun. It has a tiny stream at maximum force and will easily soak you if you turn it up too high. The shower is nice but is also the toilet room. It is very cramped for a toilet room. The two TVs are not great. The Visio TV, in the living room area, has terrible sound. It needs a soundbar or something to improve it. There is an ice maker in the kitchen that is not hooked up to water. Why??? The kitchen is adequate but small. There are plenty of dishes, pans, and other supplies etc., There are extra paper products, soap, etc. The pool is nice. It will be re-tiled in Oct 2015. The stacked washer dryer is quite noisy.
