We loved our stay at the Royal Kahana. we were in #703. The Studio Suite afforded us a beautiful view of the ocean from the Bed!! What a great way to wake up! The Studio had a good set up in the kitchen to take care of ones cooking needs. Pots, pans plates cutlery including some decent knives. A selection of handy items such as plastic wrap and basic spices left by previous guests was a welcome bonus.
We left behind some foil for the next lucky visitor. The in-suit laundry is a super bonus....after a wet day in the surf. We found snorkel gear for two, a boogie board, an umbrella and I think a couple of beach chairs too! The amenities were decent. Small but cozy pool area and a nice grassy area with plenty of sun chairs to catch a few rays....the keyless entry made going in and out a breeze. Many of the beach areas are subject to erosion on Maui as was the one outside the condo, so a bit if a steep descent into the surf. Chip, The Concierge on property hooked us up with a great price for car rental...better than online and spent a good deal of time acclimating us to the island and areas activities.
This property is very well located with the #28 bus stop steps away. A $4 Day pass takes you in any direction to the popular Napili bay, Kapalua and Kaanapali beaches, farmers market and shopping centers for groceries and gifts are also right on the bus line. One can go all the way to Lahaina. Just across the street is Whalers Convenience Store...with a good selection of fresh packaged and frozen foods as well as liquid elixirs for all ages...They even had a great sale on Macadamia nuts!!
The Maui Beachfront Rentals staff was stellar. Right from the start. We were subject to an online vacation rental scam and Michelle the manager was so very helpful and caring and set us up with this place at a great price. while at the condo, a couple of issues needed attending and the MBR Staff were very quick to respond and take care of things asap.
We felt well taken care of. We highly recommend this place. Reasonable prices and nicely situated away from the tourist crowd if that’s what you are looking for. Aloha! Have a great trip!
