Royal Kahana - Lived up to expectations
The condo at Royal Kahana (#462419) met our expectations for a clean, comfortable and well equipped place to spend our first of many Maui vacations. Darlene did an outstanding job of making sure our stay was comfortable and made sure we were satisfied with our accommodations. The first floor view was fabulous and we took advantage of it during many morning coffee and breakfasts. While the air conditioner was not in operation, Darlene put our minds at ease that it would not prove to be an inconvenience, which it wasn't. The cool, gentle ocean breezes provided more than adequate comfort and enabled us to awake to the sounds of ocean waves. The only reason why I did not give a 5 star rating was due to the fact that the beach was inaccessible due to the ocean swells eroding the beach to the point that access was prevented by the resort management. We were told that the beach would return when the direction of the swells changed to a southerly direction. But this was only a minor inconvenience as we were able to access the beach from other public access points, of which there are many. We enjoyed several of the local eating establishments that were within walking distance. I would recommend Dollie's (make sure you get there for happy hour) and the Maui Brewing Company. The location of the Royal Kahana made it convenient to drive to Kaanapali and Kapalua, where we enjoyed sightseeing and golf. The view of Molokai from the condo was amazing as were the views of the kite boarders, sailboarders and the humpback whales breaching. I would recommend staying at Darlene and Rick's condo in Maui. We were very satisfied with their responsiveness and with the condition of the condo. Thanks for sharing your place with us. Our first Maui vacation was memorable and you were a big part of it.
Roomy. Quiet. Beachfront for West Maui Fun!
