Happy Father's Day to any that are reading this (though I'm writing it a day late). Samantha could not love that little room of hers more. You'd think she didn't have a whole suite to herself at home... She came in early asking if she could get a box (we bought the crate of tiny cereal boxes at Costco) of Froot Loops (this kid is lip synching a …
Our final day on Waikiki, and frankly we are all glad it is here. We have had fun, but Honolulu is definitely not our vision of Hawaii. We spent the morning packing everything up. The kids were ecstatic that we were out of cereal and that I had to run across the street to McDonald's. I tried to keep it as local as possible by ordering the Spam and …
... my designated shift of Penny patrol, I noticed that her swim diaper was hanging a little low...and that it had an irregular hue about the edges. Sure enough, Penny had 'dropped chow' and produced a horrific slurry of pablum and veggie dip. I couldn't get her out of the pool fast enough and did everything in my power to prevent the fecal silt from pooling on the tiles. You'd think I'd marinated my hands in yellow curry. Naturally, we'd not packed an extra swim diaper or wipes and ...
... You have to navigate your way through the coral until you get out a fair ways off shore, of course Bryan and I decided to take the hard route out and it was very exhilarating at times with huge surf encompassing us but as Bryan says keep your head down and kick and it works...Oh my what fun. On our way back to the beach we took the easy route nice an sandy :-)
We made our way back around ...
We have had rain on and off since Sunday night....very unusual for Maui. Luckily we have managed to dodge it during the day but it has curtailed our beach days.
For something to do where we didn't need clear visibility, we went shopping in Lahaina. Love this town. Bought a cute strapless dress. The sun came out so we went ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Kahana Falls Lahaina
Just returned from a wk at KAHANA FALLS Feb 18-25. Had a good time. We had bid on a wk on Sky Auction, and ended up with one of the hotel rooms. I read all the reviews and was hesitant at first, however our stay was very good. We were in one of the lock out hotel rooms in the Aloha bldg on the 6th floor, small room but comfortable. Jacuzzi tub, fridge, microwave, table and 2 chairs..high window above the bed, looked out on the mountain side, and on the walkway. The maids came too early for us, so we only had the once a week clean up of the room, passing our trash out to them as we were on our way out..maybe at 11 AM. The pool was nice, I enjoyed it, very soothing with the waterfalls..not heated but certainly warm by the afternoon sun....they supply towels you can keep for the week for the pool. The jacuzzis were warm and not usually busy, one by the pool and one up the back by the bbq area. There were bbqs also by the pool and people cooking there every night. Quiet serene atmosphere. I would definately recommend Kahana Falls. The beach is across the street and thru a pathway, small, but lovely to sit and watch the sunset. There are beach parks nearby that you can drive to, take a picnic lunch and enjoy, most were not busy even on the holiday (US) wkend.
An OK place to stay
Stayed here in Nov 2004 for a week. This is not a resort, but a very comfortable hotel. Not on the beach but one is about 5 minutes by car. Located on a city street with other hotels you can walk to shopping and places to eat and drink. The pool is sandwiched between the hotel and parking lot. overall it is clean and comfortable. Staff was helpful and pleasant. If you want a resort with lots to do on site then this is not for you, if you want a decent place that is centrally located to come back to at the end of the day, it will work well.
My family of 4 stayed here in June 2004. Our room had one bdrm/2ba and was roomy. Balcony had a little view of the ocean from the 3rd floor. Everything was very clean and our room was serviced everyday with fresh towels and a trash pick up. Pool was pretty, and worked fine for us. We would definately stay here again. The entire resort was spotless and maintance folks were cleaning the pool everyday. Above average.
Excellent place to stay - very peaceful
This is a very tranquil place to stay. Very well mainatained with excellent staff. I would go again. Loved the pool area.
Quiet and relaxing
Great service from a friendly staff in a well-maintained building. Just returned from a week in a 1-bd (full sized) unit. The resort was clean (no ants), and the staff bent over backwards to make our stay enjoyable. Had partial ocean views from the unit and plenty of space.
The kids enjoyed the pool.
Know what you are getting. The hotel units are very small, and this is not a mega-resort with crowds. But it is a great property with a wonderful staff and a nice beach just across the street.
Since this is a Gold Crown Resort by RCI, we expected it to be nicer
A wonderful place to relax
My wife and I have been owners at Kahana Falls for over eleven years and look forward to returning every summer. The rooms are clean and comfortable. This resort serves our meets our personal needs Maui; a relaxing resort to sleep and rest at night, while touring the beautiful island of Maui in the day. The accommodations were not intended for people to sit in front of the tv all day, while one of the most beautiful scenic loacation in the world awaits your own personal discovery.
Very Disappointed in the Kahana Falls
I was very disappointed when actually saw this place. I have been to many "resorts" and I would not consider Kahana Falls a resort. The hotel room was very, very small. The staff appeared to care less that we were there. There were ants in the room. The staff gave me a can of spray to kill the ants myself. This place reminded me of a flop house.
I cannot believe that this was considered a Gold Crown Resort! I toured the Embassy Suites and determined that if Kahana falls was a 5 star the Embassy Suites was a 12 star! Although I scheduled a 7 day stay, I terminated it after just 6 and went home. Resident beware!
Worst timeshare vacation - Awful rating by RCI.
This was the worst resort we ever stayed in. All they have is few artificial miniature falls. Rooms are extremely small. Service sucks.
DON'T GO HERE!
Great quiet restful location
Kahana Falls is a great time share if you want a small, quiet, restful place to spend a week. A short walk to a nice beach, a short drive to great snorkeling, walking distance to any needed shopping. It feels like living in a local apartment. A small but just great pool with a waterfall and food/beverage service. If you don't want the hustle and bustle of a large resort, this is the place!
