My family (2 adults, 2 kids) stayed in this condo over February break and loved it. The owners were very easy to deal with and emailed you very quickly. The condo has a passcode so when we arrived at the condo late we were able to get in with no problems. The door for this unit is right off the three elevator doors. We did not find this noisy as the walls are cement and it is hard to hear what is going on in the hall. The owners have fixed up the kitchen and bathroom so everything is clean. The condo has all the kitchen tools you need, the bathroom has a make-up mirror, blow-dryer and iron, small washer and dryer, small safe, two flat screen tvs which netflix can be uploaded to, wifi in the condo and pool area was great. In the morning around 6am the regular condors go down and put there towels on chairs on the north and east side of the pool because this is the best seats with sun. There were always enough chairs that could be moved around if you used the pool in the afternoon. We were luck during our stay that the ocean brought back the beach in front of the building so they reopened beach access. This was great to go down and watch the sunsets. However, on our last day the weather changed and washed away the beach so they had to close off access again. Yes they had to put sand bags along the beach but with the ocean being so close they need to protect the building and pool. No major constructing was going on so this did not affect our stay. Something else not talked about was in the morning is sometimes rained and then cleared up around 9am but the rainbows over the ocean were amazing. We spent a lot of time on the balcony. You can see the ocean and the pool right below you while on the balcony but with binoculars we saw whales almost every day while having lunch.
We loved our stay and trip to west Maui for all the markets, beaches and restaurants.
We loved the condo. It was clean and spacious. It was really well equipped with all the kitchen utensils you might need and plenty of plates, glasses and cutlery. There was even the bonus of beach equipment. Towels, chairs, snorkels etc. However the ocean view was two thirds ocean and one third the next door hotel tower and the beach front advertised was a row of sand bags. Whilst the condo itself was very well maintained the same could not be said for the complex. The common areas and poolside were very jaded looking. The landscaping was minimal and untidy and the tennis courts were closed and overgrown with algae..

This room was perfect for my family of four. The beds were comfortable. Everything was just right. Beautiful location!
My wife and two young sons and I rented this unit for a week over the holidays. Since we are both divers and we wouldn't think of leaving our kids home while we're off having fun, we wanted to find a place with more elbow room than your typical hotel room. Royal Kahana #512 couldn't have suited our needs better. It's a great size for a family of 4, has a stellar view of Kahana beach and the island of Lanai, and is perfectly located near all of the fun West Maui has to offer. 15 minutes into downtown Lahaina. Times Grocery Store with pharmacy 5 min away. About 50 or 60 minutes to Kahului airport depending on time of day.
The best thing about this property is you're not spread all over the universe like at a big resort. Your car isn't a two mile hike away. Neither is the pool! There is a decent little gym in the basement that kept my workouts on track during our week. Unit 512 is located right by the elevator too for extreme convenience! Unit comes with a closet full of useful stuff like two full snorkel sets, a body surfboard, and a couple of sand toys. Beach towels are provided in the unit too, and you have a USABLE kitchen and washer/dryer!! Parents out there, I you know what I'm getting at here -- this place is perfect! The furnishings are relaxed/casual and tropical in theme. It's not so super fancy that you feel like you're going to mess anything up by breathing on it, but everything is clean, and in great working order. The owners, Dan & Shelly were so friendly and helpful, and provided every detail of information we'd need to make a great vacation a reality!
You can't do better with this condo. Perfect in every way. Roomy clean. Beautiful view. Convient and all around a perfect place to stay on Maui. We would come back here easily.
