Travel Blogs from Lahaina
... no idea what to expect but I'm imagining that it'll be a good time! ---------------- So Henry didn't nap. If you followed our Oregon blog last year you'll know what that meant for the evening before I even begin. The Old Lahaina Luau is a well-oiled machine and impressive in its efficiency at getting you in and settled. At $290 (two adults and a kid) though, it was a bit of a stinger. I won't say too much about the whole shebang as I'm fairly certain that our friends enjoyed it. ...

We ate in tonight ordered take out from the local restaurant here the gang said their hamburger's were great, my baked potato and salad was incredible. We are in bed early tonight tomorrow we leave at 7AM on our adventure to Hana, having dinner at Mama's Fish house tomorrow night.
Another day filled with lots of laughs, friendship and fun!
Today we went for a drive south of the condo to Kihei, Wailea and Makena. Past this last point we walked through the lava fields of Haleakala's last eruption in the 17th century.
After seeing these areas we are very glad to be in Kapalua. Kihei and Wailea have strips of huge hotels and chain stores with ...
Disclaimer: Shane insists he didn't promise me we would find a ride at that lot. But that's his story and mine says different. We are both sticking to our stories.
Shane's Rebuttal....lol......Uncle Larry is a great writer. He is very funny. But.....factually incorrect. There is to much to correct in the story in its entirety, but the hike that requires swimming is a different hike that I told him about and I told him to dress warm for this hike due to ...
... and bay, but! After a hamburger and a hotdog we headed back the way we came, there is no other way. They must be giving away Mustangs if I could only find out where? Every second vehicle is a Mustang. We stopped at Lahinia on the way back for dinner at Hard Rock Cafe, Sunset was wonderful. Helen asked me if I would like the green roast capsicum off her plate, it was great so then I bit into mine and it blew my head off and gave me blisters! Mine was a Jalapeño ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Kahana Sunset Lahaina
I have enjoyed five different condo properties in West Maui. Maui is always my last stop on multi island visits. The most beautiful area and the place to slow down and relax.
spent 6 days here, 3/26 thru 4/1. originally booked in ocean front, but later transfered to garden view, condo c5. i was bringing my mom on her 1st trip to hawaii. i had concerned about getting a nice place she would be comfortable in. talked to a woman from kahana sunset on phone, was told c5 had been recently refurbished, that we would like it. easy to say over the phone, i had some concerns until very mimute we opened the front door. it was VERY well done, we were very happy to get this condo. plenty of room for the 5 of us. talked a few times to a woman in condo next to us, who apparently has stayed here b4. when she saw how the kitchen area was remodelled in our unit, she was impressed. really openned up the l kitchen area. we saw whales off of our balcony, which was nice, because we had to cancel our whale watching tour due to high winds.
We just got back from spring break and enjoyed our accomodations very much. The price for what you got was very reasonable compaired to hotel prices. The units are very roomy, the kids had their own room with a bathroom, we had ours with a bathroom, and there was a nice size living room when we wanted to all be together. The kitchen is a little small, but large enough to throw together a quick breakfast. There is a large upstairs and downstairs lani. There is no air conditioning which would have been nice. They have fans, but then you have the noise. Our unit was old and in need of some updating, but it was clean. The washer and dryer were a blessing!
We just returned from 3 weeks in Maui. We were there for Christmas and New Year's. We stayed at the Kahana Sunset. We had a 2 bedroon condo or townhouse. It was clean enough I guess but I was told the unit had just been updated and expected it to be a little nicer for the cost. It was very roomy. I was also told it had a big screen TV, it didn't. I didn't complain because I didn't care about the TV, I was in Maui! I just don't like being lied to. It also needed a few more supplies to be stocked so you wouldn't have to buy everything. We were in the A building and it is right on the ocean. I expected to be able to walk out my door and onto the beach but you have to go around the back to access the beach. This building is on a sea wall, nice but loud! No air conditioning but didn't need it. The view was beautiful and you can't beat the sunsets. The beach was nice, great for the kids although when we were there, the waves were the highest they'd seen in a while. We were there during the Tsunami. My son (7) had the best time riding the big waves in his big tube but my little one who is 4 had a hard time with the big waves so she stayed in the pool area. My 15 year old just laid in the sun. They all made friends and we even used the barbque grills and had dinner on the patio with new friends a few times. One night before the new year a big crowd of people had a party on the patio in the evening and they were drunk and loud and foul. The police were called and then it was quiet. We heard that one family had been asked to leave. It was family oriented place and we felt the management handled it well and there were no more events like that one. All in all it was a decent place to stay but could be a little cheaper.
Nice for the price
My fiance and I stayed in the 1bedrm in unit D1D earlier this month. It was a nice place to stay and offered a lot for the price, even daily maid service. We appreciated that they also had a fully stocked kitchen and washer/dryer. The location was also good since it was easy access to groceries and other small shops just minutes away. We enjoyed another beach very closeby called Kapalua Bay where it was nice to snorkel. As a matter of fact, if you are a golfer, Kapalua golf course is very closeby, as is Kaanapali golf course. The only thing that would have been nice to have since it was so hot was air conditioning. But the unit accomodated by having fans galore. I would recommend this condo for anyone who wants a nice, clean, place to stay.
Great place to stay!
We had a wonderful stay at the Kahana Sunset. The condo was beautifully decorated and was very accessible to the beach, pool, and barbecue area. Not to mention just a few miles from Kaanapali, Lahaina, and Kapalua. We can't wait to come back!
Kahana Sunset is the perfect spot for a family vacation in Maui! As the name suggests, the sunsets are spectacular!
My family and I stayed at Kahana Sunset from 1/21/04 to 2/1/04. It was the first time we'd stayed at a condo in Maui and in the course of checking out several, I came across a review of this spot in Frommer's. It seemed like just the kind of place we were looking for, and the price was comparatively reasonable for 4 adults, so we figured "Why not?" The unit we stayed in was comfortable, clean, and had a great view from the lanais on both levels, especially of the spectacular sunsets. There was no air conditioning but there were ceiling fans in the living room and bedrooms, and the prevailing breezes were refreshing. The kitchen was very small but well-equipped and more than sufficient for our needs. The small beach/cove was really nice to have at hand and terrific for swimming any time of day. Kahana Sunset is halfway between Kaanapali and Kapalua and within a short drive to almost anything of interest between Kapalua and Lahaina. The only complaints I have - and they're very minor - are: (1) our unit could have used a little updating to the decor; and (2) the parking spots outside our unit were extremely tight and obviously designed for compact cars or smaller, while almost everyone staying in our wing had a mid-size vehicle or larger, making for some interesting moments getting in and out. That said, we all feel we would go back there again if given the chance, and would not hesitate to recommend it to others.
Great deal in Paradise
We thought the place was great! We even got married there. It's one of the few places with it's own private beach, and it's not rocky so it was perfect for swimming. We knew it didn't have air conditioning before we went, we didn't think the heat was so bad. Seemed like most condos were not air-conditioned anyway. For the price, this place will exceed your expectations! Besides you're in Maui - what's to complain about!
Kahana Sunset was OK
I went there with my grown children for a wedding in September 2003.
The condo was actually very nice. View was wonderful and it was very peaceful there. The only thing we needed was air conditioning. The humidity was high when we were there and the room was hot if we were in there in the daytime.
