About Mike

Aloha and thank you for visiting our condo listing. We are two brothers who live in Ventura, California. We like to get away from it all from time to time and Maui is where we go. We have owned unit 1204 at the Royal Kahana Resort since 2006. 1204 is the best studio condo compared to all the other studios based on it's location in the building and the view from the unit. There are other studios that have a similar view as 1204 but where the unit is located in the building 1204 has the best view. If you've stayed in one of the other studios at the Royal Kahana before, now it's time to stay in the best and Studio 1204 is it. Why is 1204 the best? It's the view and the recent remodeled interior of the unit. Why did we pick the Royal Kahana Resort? Because of its location on Maui and the amenities it offers. Also the home owners association is constantly remodeling and updated the building. The homeowners association is always repairing and replacing key infrastructure items so that the resort is never run down. We welcome you to stay in our condo and relax in our little piece of paradise.

Mike purchased this condo in 2006

Why Mike chose Maui

The Royal Kahana Resort is located on the beautiful West Coast of Maui in the town of Kahana and is surrounded by Maui's spectacular natural beauty and is located right on the Kahana Bay. The Royal Kahana Resort has a lot to offer you. Swim in the heated pool and sun yourself on the spacious pool side deck or on the lawn near the ocean. There are gas-fired barbecue grills just outside the pool area. There is a fitness room, ping-pong and shuffleboard. No resort fee's. Free wifi. Free parking, you can park underground or at ground level. The Royal Kahana Resort has 3 elevators. A Concierge Desk is in the lobby for booking your activities. Just a 5-minute drive to Kaanapali or Kapalua, and just a 10-minute drive (if that) to the historic whaling town of Lahaina. Lahaina, Kaanapali and Kapalua have some of the best shopping, restaurants and don’t forget the Golf on the island of Maui.

What makes this condo unique

Besides the view from our unit, the amenities at the Royal Kahana and the location on the West side of Maui we have The Kahana Gateway Shopping Center right across the street. No need to get in to your car and drive to Lahaina or Kaanapali for shopping, the super market or for a nice dinner, just walk across the street up in to the Kahana Gateway Shopping Center, where you can have a bite to eat at Maui Brewing Company American & Island Style Cuisine Microbrewery or for a quick bite there's a Mc Donald’s. Get a gourmet cup of Coffee from Hawaiian Village Coffee House. There is a Whalers General Store and Gas Station, Smile Nail Salon & Massage, Maui Dive Shop to rent you'r snorkel equipment, a Bank of Hawaii with an ATM. We are fortunate to have the Kahana Gateway Shopping Center right across the street. That's why I think the town of Kahana and the Royal Kahana Resort is one of the best places to stay on Maui. Do yourself a favor don’t get caught up in the crowds and the high prices in Lahaina, Kaanapali and Kapalua come stay at the Royal Kahana Resort in the town of Kahana and take a deep breath slow down and relax in the Hawaiian life style.

Awesome Maui Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We spent 10 incredible days in Maui with this condo as our homebase. The condo was fantastic. Clean, bright and well set up. Everything you need for the beach is there for you.

Being situated on the 12th floor allowed us to enjoy the views of the early morning sun streaming through the clouds above Molokai from the lanai as we sipped our morning coffee. In the evening we would see the island lit up by the setting sun as we sipped our wine and wound down from another day in paradise. We fell asleep every night to the sounds of the waves on the beach below.

The fully outfitted kitchen was wonderful and allowed us to enjoy our own cooked meals. But the location is very near many wonderful restaurants in the area.

The building itself was clean and well kept. There was always someone at the concierge desk if we were looking for something.

Mike is a great owner and always goes the extra mile. He answered all our questions and dealt with our concerns. We would highly recommend anyone interested in visiting the Kahana region of Maui to consider staying here. You will not be disappointed.

Our Maui Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

Love this place! We were here three years ago and liked it so much we came back! The view is just so wonderful. The balcony is a breathtaking view! We love the location. Close to all the good restaurants and shopping and the Golf Course is right there also. Mike is so easy to talk to. All the amenities are right there. Very clean and nice. Just perfect for our Maui getaway. We just celebrated our 20th anniversary there and my birthday. Just a perfect place for it.

Perfect Stay!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I celebrated our 25th anniversary for 8 days in the condo. It was perfect. If you want to be with all the crowds, this is definitely the wrong place. The condo was peaceful, well appointed, well stocked and a great jumping off point to the local attractions. Mike was available before, during and after our stay and was a pleasure to work with. Views were awesome. Napili Beach 5 minutes north is awesome, but get there early. Would stay here again in a heartbeat and I recommend it to anyone looking for a restful stay and good value. Thanks Mike for everything.

We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay! My husband & I absolutely loved the condo, it was perfect. The views from the lanai were amazing! We enjoyed having coffee every morning on the lanai, as well as enjoying the sunsets every night. The location was perfect for us. There was a great little beach bar & grill next door that had great happy hour food and drinks. Our favorite beach was only a 5 minute drive up the road. The condo had everything you could need. It was updated nicely and very clean. The beach chairs, umbrellas, and cooler were a huge plus, we used them every time we headed out to the beach, and even on the road to Hana. Having the cooler with water and snacks was really nice. We won't need to look to stay anywhere else, this will always be our place! Mike was great to work with. He always responded right away, answered any questions and gave great advice about the area.

Sunsets, whales, and little extras to ensure comfort.

  • 5 of 5

The condo made for a nice Maui getaway for 88 year old mom and daughter. Very nicely outfitted. Enjoyed morning, sunsets, and whales all day from the lanai. Loved the ocean sounds all night. Location allows for walking to farmers market (wonderful local fresh fruit and vegetables), small grocery stores and restaurants.. Lots of thoughtful little extras make for a hassle free and very comfortable stay. Mike was very attentive and responsive before, during and after our stay. We did end up going to other beaches for swimming and walking since the high surf closed access to the beach from the condo property. Enjoyed the pool.

Who could ask for more???

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our stay in Maui and this condo was perfect! Mike was so easy to work with and answered all questions quickly. We asked for a couple of extra towels and the next day we returned from our adventure and towels were there. The condo was clean and very comfortable. The view was AMAZING!! Loved having the washer and dryer...plus provided some laundry detergent and dryer sheets! The area was quiet, but had plenty of places to eat within walking distance or a short drive. Parking was free which was another "plus". We would not hesitate to rent this condo again. Thanks Mike for making our vacation even better then we could have imagined!!!
