NIce grounds. Clean grilling area. Covered sit down area with a beach view. Small secluded beach - kids loved it. Rock outcrop on the right side of the beach attracted lot of turtles. Service staff was good. Had some issues with the safe but were resolved promptly. Will come back again.
Visit Napili beach it is excellent. Lot of waves.

Room Tip: Ask for updated unit.

When we visit Maui, Kahana Sunset is where we choose to stay. A laid back, quiet location, with beautiful grounds, modest units, great view of Molokai and a "private" beach. This is where we come to relax and recharge our batteries. Staff have always been very pleasant and accommodating. A neighborhood store is close by for anything you need. If you are looking for a high powered resort, this is not the place. Thus another reason why we stay here. I highly recommend Kahana Sunset the next time you are considering a trip to Maui.

Room Tip: Not all condos have been remodeled. We have stayed in both and while certain units show some wear...

What a perfect little beach! The KS property is beautifully landscaped and has a gorgeous sandy beach. Last time we were there, there was some construction going on but it is all completed and now the place is heaven on Earth! The pool is blue tiled on the bottom and has a shallow kids pool attached to it. It's great for kids learning to swim. If you already are a good swimmer the ocean beckons. We saw green sea turtles on every snorkel swim. You can even see them from out of the water! There are no private beaches in Maui but this is as close as you can get to that. Most units are remodeled and updated. Make sure you ask for one that is. We stayed in B-10 and it was amazing. Full kitchen and your own W/D. B-10 had A/C but not all the units do.

Room Tip: These are condos with individual owners. Make sure you get an updated one with A/C. We stayed in B-1...

Highly recommend these condos to Maui travelers. Spacious and clean units with ideal grounds and location. Great private beach, pool, BBQs, and deck/reading nook. Very quiet. Great views from D units. Close to great snorkeling sites and market to pick up what your forgot at Costco. A real vacation!

Had a wonderful stay at Kahana Sunset B2 from late April to early May. This is a top floor two-level unit with 2 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms and two balconies. We rented through VRBO. You can YouTube this unit and see the gorgeous decor and all of the amazing upgrades they put into it. Susan was super easy to work with through VRBO.

This unit is DIALED IN!! The owners have put tile throughout, granite, built-in units with stone mosaic, full tile and mosaic showers, whisper quiet cabinets, stainless steel appliances, and even a really nice flat top electric cook range (I was impressed by this last one, as I HATE the coil ones usually found in condo rentals). Condo was also SUPER clean upon entering. I'm kind of a stickler for cleanliness...when we travel I inspect the whole place and re-clean light switches, countertops, toilet seats and lids, etc. Not one speck of dust was found on the wet wipes I was using. Color me impressed! They also stock it full of every kitchen gadget and item you would need...even a crock pot (large and small), enough dishwasher soap for your stay, and a ton of spices/random things for cooking.

We'd highly recommend this unit to anyone who'd like to stay on a semi-private beach in Maui. I've been to Maui 11 times now and have throughly explored most of its beaches. Never been on this beach because you can't really tell it's there unless you were staying in the units at Kahana Sunset.

Grounds are beautiful and well kept. Gardening day is Tuesday morning and on the early side...but you'll be awake already from the birds who reside here (they usually wake and start singing around 5:35am sharp. We are early birds though, so didn't bother us at all.

The only downside, if you have to have one...the AC, or lack thereof. We knew this going into it, but still, even being from a warm area in SoCal, we were hit with a heat wave and had to acclimate a bit. We left doors and windows open when we could and the whole unit has super strong fans throughout.... Oh and if you're squeamish on bugs...2 centipedes in the unit (on separate days) that we threw back out into the bushes after catching them on a paper towel and also a three inch cockroach found on the first night (and a handful of baby ones) but only found in specific area near master bathroom.... and not every night. This is super likely in a tropical climate and didn't bother us a bit. I remember coming here to Maui as a kid and a a server joking with us at a restaurant that they use cockroaches here on Maui as busboys lol!! ;) Anyways, felt necessary to give you a heads up that most of the time when you visit Maui you will see at least one cockroach lol.

Like I said before, I've stayed on Maui in many different condo complexes and this condo is by far the most beautiful I've stayed in. Our daughter loved the beach and the condo itself. She enjoyed just being here in what she dubbed as "our vacation home." We will recommend to all our family and friends to come stay here based on the ease of working with Susan, the private feeling of the beach, and the beauty of the condo.
