We had a great time staying here. Unit was just fine, staff were friendly and no pressure. Location is right on a beach and we heard the surf all day and night. Amazing views and sunsets. Close to shops and farmer's market. Just be sure you know there is no one to help you carry your luggage. But a perfectly...

I have been an owner since 2001, and look forward to our time here! The ocean is RIGHT in front of us...along with the sounds!!! The turtle reef is amazing! Location just enough away from the beaten path to make it a true vacation, but close enough to get to whatever we want! Couldn't be more satisfied!!! Rooms are clean,...

The headline of your generous review says it all, and we couldn’t be happier that your last visit with us elicited such a satisfied response. Being an owner for as long as you have, you know how easy it is to kick back, relax and enjoy the sights and sounds of the ocean. We appreciate your loyalty and thank you...

We stayed here in Sep 29-Oct 6, 2013 in a studio unit (607). We were not sure about the Murphy bed when we booked but it turned out to be very comfortable. My boyfriend has back issues so the firm bed worked perfectly for him (and also for me with no back problems). The view from our 6th floor room...

Aloha! Thank you for visiting Kahana Beach. We appreciate your generous review and complimentary remarks. Our breathtaking ocean views offer wonderful vistas of the Pacific as far as the eye can see. Watching the sea turtles swim by as you’re relaxing on your lanai is a great way to begin the morning. Thank you once again for staying with us....

We stayed from October 4th through the 11th and can't say one bad thing about this resort. Spacious room, great service and magnificent views make this a great place. From our lanai we watched sea turtles, sting rays and even a harmless shark. Beach front with great swimming. No lifeguards on the beach or pool, but they don't seem necessary....

This location is great. Out of the busy traffic a little off the main road through kahana. We were weary of the Murphy bed but have had no troubles with it. They also don't hassle you about owning a timeshare unless you are interested. We have seen sea turtles, stingrays, and several rainbows from our 9 th floor room. Waves...

We stayed here for a week in the beginning of Oct 2013 and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. I doubt if you can a better ocean view in other places in Maui. You can easily walk down to the beach and there were also turtles in the rocks nearby. I believe most of the studios are ocean-facing and that by...

We stayed in studio #206 for one week. The view was fabulous - ocean front. If loud surf is a problem for you, then it will not work. With the windows open, it is crashing right there. We saw turtles and beautiful sunsets. The murphy bed was very comfortable, and the accommodations were all we needed for two people. The...

Kahana Beach resort in Maui was nice. It is definitely no Marriott but everyone was very friendly. Julie at Expedia was wonderful and very helpful. The beds pulled down from the wall so it wasn't extremely comfortable. After the 5th night my back started to hurt. Just double check your ending balance. I had pre-paid for my 4 extra days...
