This studio had everything we needed. The condo is spotless and comfortable. We would definitely stay at the Royal Kahana again. We found restaurants close by and had great meals. Just up the road some great beaches to swim and snorkel.

Royal Kahana was great!
Date of Stay: Aug 6, 2017
From the time we checked in to the time we checked out, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Royal Kahana.. All of the staff was friendly and helpful. Our condo, #410, was fabulous; spacious and beautiful! We enjoyed eating out on the lanai whenever we had time. Have beautiful pictures of sunsets taken from the lanai. We were so busy taking tours, etc. which we made reservations with the Concierge, Chip and Rebekah, (they were great!), that we only made it to the pool a couple of times. Will certainly try to reserve #410 at Royal Kahana for our next trip to Maui! Thank you for an enjoyable trip!

Amazing vacation on Maui! (Royal Kahana #706)
Date of Stay: Jul 30, 2017
We stayed in Royal Kahana #706 between July 31st and August 10th, 2017. The whole trip was fantastic, and the condo was great with an incredible view. The location is good, because it is close to Kaanapali, but isn't too crowded. You can walk to the Maui Brewing Company restaurant, and we quite liked the food and beer and it wasn't too expensive. The beach at the resort has a bunch of sandbags right now to prevent erosion, but you can still access the beach, where it is quite nice to swim and snorkel; plenty of colorful fish and giant turtles swim around right there. It's also only a few minutes' drive to Napili Beach, Kapalua Beach, and Oneloa Beach, which were all very good (though Oneloa Beach was quite windy - I don't know if we had bad luck or if it's always that way because it's more north-facing than the other ones). The concierge service at the resort was also helpful in getting us set up with all the activities we wanted for a reasonable price. We did a helicopter ride over western Maui and Moloka'i, went on a boat to snorkel at Molokini, kayaked on the ocean, and went to a luau. Much more touristy than we usually do for vacations, but I think all of these things were well worth doing on a first visit to the island. My only suggestions for improvement would be to switch out the standard showerhead with a handheld showerhead for the detailed sand removal that is necessary after a day at the beach, and to add some fold-out furniture to the lanai that you can lay down on for just enjoying the view and reading a book (the regular chairs become a bit uncomfortable after a while). But overall, a fantastic experience. We very much would like to return at some point to see the whales during winter!

Beautiful views in a lovely condo!!
Date of Stay: Jul 10, 2017
We loved our stay here. The condo is beautiful and had everything we could have needed. The views from the lanai are fabulous and we spent as much time as we could out there! The location was perfect, walking distance to Maui Brewing and short drive to many other places. The owners were excellent to work with, we had one small issue while in the condo and they had someone out to repair it the next morning! We would definitely recommend and would love to stay here again!

The room and facilities were tidy and clean. The super king sized bed was very comfortable, the kitchen and bathroom facilities well stocked and good quality. Great walk-in shower and in room washer and dryer and wardrobe. Lanai had a great view of the ocean. When we required service help was on hand promptly and efficiently. We would love to stay again!

We are so pleased with our accommodation!!! From the beautiful Hawaiian decorations throughout to the wonderful layout of the condo. The owners have thought of everything to make their guest's stay more comfortable! We thoroughly enjoyed watching the sunset from the lanai. And waking up to the sound of the waves is so heavenly in the comfy bed. The kitchen and bathroom were well stocked. And it was nice have clean clothes as there is a washer/dryer in the condo. Such a nice treat! We enjoyed using the beach accessories (snorkels, beach chairs, beach towels, umbrella, boogie boards, cooler, etc) the most! The location is extremely convenient as it is close to Kaanapali, Lahaina, and Kapalua for shopping, dining, golfing, hiking and the fabulous beaches. All in all, our vacation here in Maui and our stay here at the Royal Kahana will be one of our most memorable vacations by far!!! Mahalo, Craig & Lani

Great condo. Would highly recommend.
Date of Stay: Jun 25, 2017
Condo is exactly as pictured in photos. Very clean and views from the lanai are beautiful. Building is nice with ample parking. Our room was very quiet, we never heard anyone else. The beach area is small, but gets larger in front of the hotels immediately to the south. Kitchen had everything we needed for meals. Lanai had 4 chairs which was great for our family to sit and eat outside. My only con is the sofa bed is what you'd expect from a sofa bed; ok for one or two nights, but not comfortable for a week. My daughter found it comfortable, but the rest of us did not (we rotated throughout the week). Shelly was very responsive and easy to work with. We would definitely book with them again.

Awesome Stay! WE loved it!
Date of Stay: Aug 11, 2017
This is our first time using VBRO and first trip to Hawaii, so we didn't know what to expect. Overall all, we loved our stay at Shelly and Dan condo! The condo fit our large size family (6 in total) and it's a good size condo. The condo is located at the end of the building and the patio have a partial view of the ocean - which is awesome. The biggest plus is it has 'air condition' and I would HIGHLY recommend it. The previous week, we stayed at the 'non air condition' condo, relying on the ocean wind to pass through and using fan - it was torturous. Never Again!!!! When we stepped into Shelly and Dan condo, my family first words were 'this is heaven'. The condo itself was well equipped with all the basic necessities (BUT please provide more washer detergent - 2 small box (=2 load) is not enough), and some sea water equipment for the kids (eg. surf board, snorkel, etc) . The premise have a work out center, outdoor pool and access directly to the beach for swimming. My wife love the collections of books available in condo. Also, McDonald, restaurants and small shops are very short walking distance - perfect location to explore. Shelly and Dan kept us posted with any issues relating to the condo (eg. pest control) or equipment replacement. In short, it was a family consensus to come back to Shelly and Dan condo again when we come back to Maui.


*The beach fronting the Royal Kahana experiences seasonal ocean current changes that influence the beach’s physical appearance and size. During the fall and winter, it is not uncommon that these currents sweep away a very large amount of sand, which will gradually return back in spring and summer, based on the ocean's current activity. Our homeowners Assoc., The County of Maui, and the State of Hawaii are working diligently to return Kahana Bay to its full potential. 

This circumstance, unfortunately, affects the accessibility of our valued guests to the beach. While there may not be, at times, direct access from the property to the beach during the fall and winter season, there is a public beach access within 5 minutes walking distance. 

Our guests' safety is of the utmost concern for us. We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your understanding.
