The unit that we stayed was pretty good. One of the things that I liked the most was the fact that was a floor unit. Very convenient for the kids to go to the beach and also to seat and relax watching a magnificent sunset. Sure, the unit is not new, but I had nothing to complain about.

Aloha Artur- So glad you enjoyed your stay at Kahana Reef and thank you for the time you took to post and write this review. Kahana Reef #121 does have an updated Kitchen and bathroom with custom cabinetry, granite counters and tiled floors. Certainly being ground floor is super convenient when travelling with kids. We hope to see you in...

This condo was right on the ocean with a small & secluded, quiet beach. Nice to be able to swim & lay out without a huge crowd around. The unit was on the 3rd floor & the view from the lanai was stunning. A lovely & relaxing place to start each day watching surfers & windsurfers & further out, whales!...

My wife and I stayed in unit 314 for 10 days. The balcony is 40 feet from the Ocean and very few people walk out front so the view was always very private. We heard the Ocean waves and loved it. With the windows open the temperature inside was very pleasant. There is no AC but I'm not a AC...

It makes be crazy when amateur travel or dining critics choose a place and then compare it to the place they were too cheap to pay for. Some of the reviews of this place are a perfect example of that. Kahana Reef ain't The Four Seasons nor do the condo owners pretend to be. What it is is a good...

Aloha Ron-Mahalo for the time you took to post and write this very informative review. Chase 'N Rainbows manages several rentals at Kahana Reef and we would invite you to check out inventory next time you plan to visit Maui and stay at The Kahana Reef.

We picked this condo because all of the condos are ocean view. We were able to see turtles and whale blowing so, and whale tails crashing down. You really need binoculars but just sitting on the lanai and seeing whales is wonderful. The pool and outside area is very clean. The people are nice and friendly. The condo we stayed...

Mahalo for the time you took to write and post this review. We think Kahana Reef is pretty a pretty special place to stay while on Maui. Chase 'N Rainbows has a terrific loyalty discount program for folks who come back to Maui and stay in any condo managed by Chase 'N Rainbows. See you again soon!

Room 103. The bed was two twin beds stuck together, stiff and sheets needed to be retired. Spent a premuim for Valentine's weekend but got bothered by realtors (4 of 7 days) as owner was selling. Being asked to leave so the condo could be shown ruined our Valentine's weekend. The kitchen appeared refurbished but many of the plates and...

We stayed in #306. Was very nice and clean. Well equipped. Ocean view and we could sit on the lanai and watch the whales. Quiet condo will go back. Love Maui. Also close to everything. Gas station, restaurants and ABC store close. Beaches right there. We also fished over the rock wall.

We visited three different hotels during our trip to the Kahana area of Maui. THIS was the gem. This place is a true piece of paradise. All of the units are along the coast with a balcony (lanai) facing the coast and I actually saw humpback whales jumping while I ate my lunch on that balcony! The ocean breeze comes...

Mahalo for the great review of Kahana Reef. We are so glad you and your family enjoyed your stay. One of the best reasons for staying in a vacation condo vs a hotel is the ability to eat in and the option to prepare you own meals and viewing whales and turtles while eating....what a bonus!

What a great place to stay. We enjoyed our stay in unit 321. It has an ocean view and the beach access is so close and convenient.

We stayed in #422 Kahana Reef in the first week of April and were pleasantly surprised…magic! The unit is very private as it is on the top floor and at the end of the building. Next door is a lovely uncrowded beach and fisherman’s cottage… not another condo! The view of the ocean … spectacular…it is directly below the balcony....
