Oceanfront, on the Beach, 180 degree ocean view! Check in WED, FRI, SAT or SUN. I guarantee you will not be disappointed with the location, view or accommodations. There is no finer view in all the Hawaiian Islands. Additional information below.
Regardless if this is your first trip to Maui or not, the key elements in choosing a place to stay in Hawaii are: Location, percentage of Ocean View, is the view obstructed, are the accommodations air-conditioned, access to the beach and is the beach a mob scene. If you are looking for room service or on-site restaurants, skip reading any further. If you are looking for all the key elements, read on.
As with any real estate, it is all about Location-Location-Location. In the case of my timeshare on Kahana Beach at the Kahana Beach Resort in Maui, it is all about Location-Location-Location & View-View-View.
The thing families love about our building is the walk out the door and be on the beach aspect. No street to cross, no walking through a parking lot. After exiting the elevator you are on the beach within 60 seconds, no exaggeration. Depending on the age of children, parents can even sit on the lanai and watch their children from there.
Currently I do not have any firm weeks booked but have six weeks available. I can book any number of weeks starting immediately, up to 365 days out. I can book six weeks all the same week or any number of weeks in a row. On several trips I booked two units each for the same two weeks and had friends join us. Booking is extremely flexible, availability is the issue. The farther out you make your reservation the greater the chance of getting the exact week you are looking for. In all travel programs, Hawaii has no off season, but the peak is January through April (whales).
My units is available to rent for 3 or more days with the quoted rate for 7 day increments. For other than 7 day increments the estimated daily cost is shown below and includes the VRBO fees.
Days Estimated Daily Cost
Check in days are on Wednesday, Friday, Saturday or Sunday. Ocean Front views, not as good as mine and less than 10 minutes away at three major hotel chains go for over $4,000 per week.
Kahana Beach Resort is located halfway between Kaanapali & Kapalua which are just minutes away, offering a complete array of restaurants and shopping . The resort is within a 10-minute drive of four championship golf courses, which host two PGA tournaments each year and are open to the public. This area of Maui is referred to as West Maui.
I am able to make reservations up to one year in advance, subject to availability. My unit is a studio with a queen size Murphy bed and a foldout couch to accommodate four people. The unit is air conditioned and extremely comfortable for two adults but would not be for four adults. Families use the studio units and put their kids on the foldout couch. Generally the building is filled with 97% couples and 3% couples with children.
From my lanai, you have 180 degree unobstructed view of the ocean, whales (when in season), sunset, mountains, Green Sea Turtles daily, Great Frigatebirds (black with a 7 foot wing span) weekly and occasionally Eagle Rays. Eagle Rays are similar in size to stingrays but are black with white spots. Pods of Spinner Dolphins pass in front of the island about once a week at a distance you need sharp viewing skills to identify and then binoculars to actually see them jumping. Kahana Beach Resort is rated 4/5 stars, for the amazing views and impeccable maintenance of the property. I challenge anyone to identify a finer view in all of the Hawaiian Islands.
Kahana Beach Resort is a 12 story building with 7 rooms per floor. The building is L shaped with 2 rooms on the side and 5 units on the front. The 5 on the front have a 180 degree ocean view and the two on the side about a 40 degree view. The five front units are owned by people like me with the side units owned by the company. The side units are rented out by the company or used for exchangers. The pricing you see on their website is for the side units, which frankly have an awful view.+ More
