        Historical Traveler Reviews Kahana Sunset Lahaina

        Take a look ath this property and unit.


        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.

        We booked the Kahana Sunset through Sullivan Properties of Maui. The reservation placement and follow up by Sullivan was top notch. Maps and other excellent items of information were sent to us. Their concierge even called us at home to offer any assistance that we might need or be interested in. We are fortunate enough to take several major trips a year and feel this booking could not have been handled better.

        Other reviews have covered the views and amenities of the Kahana Sunset.

        I will mention unit A8. Fronted by the water. The wonderful sunsets etc.

        This is a two bedroom, two and one half bath. Large lanais for both levels. Recently redone with new quality appliances in the attractive kitchen. Granite counter surfaces. Complete utility items for this easy to use kitchen. The owner is very caring about this condo. Furnishings are most attractive and the decor has been carefully selected. I hope future guests will be respectful of this second home.

        The Kahana Sunset has a hidden away feel to it. Very quiet during our May stay. Susan, the property office manager should be in public relations. Very friendly and efficient as were other staff members that we encountered. This will be our location for future and what we hope will be longer visits.

        Spring break 2005


        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.

        the layout of the complex was very nice too. nice beach, heated pool. the people who worked there really bent over backwards to help. we had a little problem with bathroom fixture, they jumped all over it. took it way more seriously then we did. on our last day there, we had to be out by 11am, but our flight out wasnt until 10pm. we asked if we could stay over some, wanted one last day on the beach, but needed a place to shower b4 going to airport. they said they couldnt let us stay over in c5, because some else coming in that day. but, they found us an empty condo that we could use to shower in early in the afternoon. that was very much appreciated, made out last day much nicer. (i also better understood why the open kitchen lay out of c5 impressed our neighbor of the wk.)

        our family had been to maui once 6 yrs earlier. we stayed at a hotel that time. i much prefer the condo approach, more comfortable, more like home, and much cheaper if your willing to cook your own meals. (we did for breakfast each day)

        based on my stay, i would come back to kahana sunset in a heartbeat. (i have to start over on the frequent flyer miles, so it wont likely be next yr.)

        i believe kahana sunset to be a very good value. i really felt mgmt trying there best to make our stay enjoyable.

        Great place for families


        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!

        The view is incredible. They do a wonderful job of taking great care of the grounds, so no matter what type of room you have, it is enjoyable to look out of. The beach was great to play in the water, but not to boogie board--bad shore break. The management and staff are very nice to work with and will try their best to make your stay enjoyable.

        All in all, this condo was a great deal and one that we would go back to. You are away from all the action, but if you are looking for a place that is quiet and relaxing, this is the place to go.

        Maui is where I want to be!


        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.

        If you visit Maui, make sure you dine at Roy's Kahana bar and Grill. It is a 5 star restaurant that is just awesome! Have the chocolate souffle for dessert, you won't be sorry! Road to Hana was beautiful worth doing, was disappointed with reef dancer and Marriott Luau. Royal Lahaina luau was much better.

        Maui weather is the best and I would give anything to be able to live there, maybe someday!

        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!

        Perfect Family Vacation Spot


        Kahana Sunset is the perfect spot for a family vacation in Maui! As the name suggests, the sunsets are spectacular!

        We stayed in an ocean front Unit ( the F building)

        which is right on the beach. All the kids had to do was open the door and they could walk right onto the beach and jump in the ocean. (Which they did constantly.

        There was also a great little lanai overlooking the water - a perfect spot for an sunset mai tai.

        Our unit was a roomy and nicely furnished 2 bedroom - bedrooms are upstairs. the front bedroom has its own large lanai with chaise lounges- the view is unbelievable. The kitchen was small but modern and efficient, and there was a granite counter, as well as dining room table for meals. ( although we ate on the lanai a lot.)

        There is also a nice pool, and an adjoining childrens pool if you get tired of the ocean.

        One of the nicest features were the great bar-b-que areas- it made meals really easy - its tough though cooking those meals while looking out at those maui sunsets-w ho can pay attention. The barbques are fairly new gas grills, with plenty of room for cooking. We enjoyed it so much we wound up canceling most of our dinner reservations and just had dinner on the lanai every night

        There were lots of families and lots of kids - my four year old fell into a pack and spent his days in the ocean, the pool, or in the bushes looking for geckos with his new friends- he wants to move there. we spent our days in the ocean, on the beach, in the pool, and on the lanai relaxing to the trade winds and watching the sun set

        By way of comparison, we have stayed in the bay villas at the Kapalua resort several times, while kapalua is wonderful and more upscale, the immediate beach access and laid back environment made for a better vacation spot for our family. Our condo was also nicer and roomier.

        We have already made our reservations to go back next year!

        Pleasantly surprised


        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.

        We started the day off at the Kahana Sands hotel for their early bird breakfast special. Five dollars a plate. I had the Hawaiian Loco Moco. Best breakfast and best price.

        A couple of days ago, Sheila and I went on a whale watching trip. I mentioned that the whale activity has slowed down now as the season comes to a close. They gave us a "Sleeping Whale" complementary pass. So today, we took the 9:45am trip. I have to take back my comments ...

I feel caught in two minds, one that we are doing to much and we aren't getting a break to lounge by the pool and I'm unsure if we picked the right excursions. So I'm just going with what we picked, I don't want to be disappointed though, that's a concern running through my mad and crazy mind. There were a lot of people all in lines for buses and we really didn't know where to go to get to the local mall before our tour ...
