Before we even got to Maui we started having problems. They cancelled our reservation for 16 people as they said someone called to cancel. We did not cancel! Made us change rooms half way through our stay. Condo was unclean, lots of spiders, and housekeeping staff that was less than concerned. Will never stay here again and certainly won't recommend...

We booked through Booking.com. We got Unit E10. The Unit needs some TLC. A paint job and new dining chairs would help! But, When you get in the unit your focus go right on the view.. Beautiful mountains, whales, sunsets right from the lanais! Everybody we talk to has been coming to kahana sunset repetedly for many years... The location...

We booked direct and it was painless. Our suite was in building F, What a view! these suites directly back on to the ocean. We arrived with our rental toys in out suite (yes, we rented toys for the kids). Our suite was clean and well stocked. The grounds, pool and grill areas are extremely well kept and were very...

Aloha Don V, We're so glad to hear your had a fabulous stay at Kahana Sunset. We agree there's much to love about our quiet little corner of paradise. You'll be happy to hear your unit is scheduled for a remodel. As you can imagine, being so close to the salt air and water causes appliances and wiring to fail...

We stayed in unit E 4, rented through VRBO. We were so lucky to find this condo. Nick, the property manager was very helpful and responsive. The complex is great; no noisy crowds like the huge resorts. The condo itself had everything we needed. We even picked herbs for dinner from the complex herb garden. The view was amazing; we...

Stayed for 10 days. Nice 1 bedroom spot with close access to private beach. Not great for snorkeling but good for boogie board. Go for short walk or drive to Napili Bay for great snorkeling. Plan early for this area. This is not a big resort place so is quieter but close enough to Lahania for more restaurants.

We stayed for 5 nights in C7, 2 bedrooms, nicely decorated, updated appliances and bathrooms. Washer/dryer in the unit and portable air conditioners. Great view of the ocean and pool area. It was a bit pricey but everything in Maui is expensive and we booked late. Better than a hotel for 5 nights with 2 teens. Lots to do close...

My family and I have enjoyed coming to Kahana Sunset for more than 25 years, frequently staying in the B,C, and D units. This year we decided to spent a little more money to stay in the ocean front A units. Unfortunately our unit, A9, was substandard, dated and did not meet the standards you would expect at Kahana Sunset....

Aloha Duke, Thank you so much for your review. We appreciate the fact that you've been coming to Kahana Sunset for 25 years and truly value your input. We are working with the unit owner to make the improvements you suggested. The tropical environment and rental wear and tear shortens the life of appliances and carpet no matter how much...

This place is really something special - The Kahana Sunset Ocean Front was really all the value for the money - expensive but amazing. Maui has it all - wonderful beaches and rainforrest - it is like Paradise on Earth

Finishing 10 days at the resort in building D. We loved the place with the two decks, two bedrooms, parking at the door, laundry in unit, boogie boards and pool. The pool is nice but the beach has an undertow that makes it unsafe for small children. Fortunately, the beaches towards Kapalua have a smoother wave action for small children....

Aloha! We're so glad to hear you enjoyed your stay at Kahana Sunset. Our return guests, whether yearly visitors or after a 30 year break, are what makes Kahana Sunset feel like home.

We stayed here three night with other friends. Condos are pretty nice IF you rent one of the more expensive units facing the ocean so they get the sea breeze. We did not. Even with the multiple fans, our unit was hot, humid, and airless and we sweated through the night waking up tired and cranky. The lanais of the...

Aloha Elizabeth, We're sorry to learn that you did not completely enjoy your visit. During most of the year, the trade winds help keep our units quite comfortable. But for those few times when the trade winds stop, it is helpful to have AC. If having guaranteed climate control is essential to your comfort, we do have units whose owners...
