Unfortunately two hours after arriving at the Kahana Reef, we were informed by a construction worker that there would be no water starting at 9am thru possibly 5pm thru the weekend. I immediately called Chase N Rainbows and the only thing I was offered was a partial ocean view unit a couple of miles down the road. This was an important trip for my mom and I and this was unacceptable to me. So, I paid $250 more to move to another ocean front unit. At the time, I was in no position to argue the charges or inconvenience. The unit we were transferred to had a full ocean view, but not as well maintained. We ended up having a nice memorable trip to memorialize my father, but I would not rent thru Chase N Rainbows again. It was a gamble to put us in the Kahana Reef unit because the work in the Kahana Reef building was ongoing and they took a risk that the work would be over by the time we arrived.

Enjoyed our stay. Had a few items that need mentioning. Screen door needs repair-it stuck on us the first night.
Dishwasher needs repair-door does not lock closed.
Room has a nice view and is well stocked. This room needs some upgrades and is not our first choice for next year.

Unit is located on the top floor of the complex with a beautiful view of the ocean. Go to sleep with the sound of the waves crashing into the sea wall that runs the length of the property. No air conditioning in unit and none needed. Constant breeze blowing through the unit if you so wish it to.
Unit owners have the condo completely stocked with everything you'll need except food. And that, while we were there anyway, included a boogie board, beach towels, face masks, and a few other items that you might use.
Internet available in unit but not WiFi so bring your Ethernet cable in case the one there is missing.
Complex kept clean and tidy and a gas grill available for you to toss a steak on for dinner. There is also a combo Japanese / Chinese restaurant just across the non busy two lane street.
Want some beach time? Simply walk down a few steps from the property and you're there. Snorkeling on your list? Reef out in front with plenty of sea life to view.
Very quiet and a wonderful place to relax and allow the stress of real life to melt away.
So many more great things to say about this unit / complex but can't list them all here.

My husband and I stayed at Kahana Reef #414 for 7 nights in late October 2011. We we amazed at how private, serene and beautifully located Kahana Reef is. It felt "exclusive" and for us - was superior to staying at the crowded resorts at Kaanapali, etc. And being able to choose between going out to eat or making simple meals in the unit was a plus. Our lanai opened to a full view of the ocean- and the islands of Molokai and Lanai. We ate all meals and fell asleep each night on the lanai to the gentle sounds of the surf. The sunset view from the lanai was priceless. The grounds were impeccably maintained - and beautifully planted with fragrant flowering trees, orchids and tropical plants. Outdoor grills were cleaned each morning and were always ready for use, the elevator convenient, laundry facility excellent. Everything on the property was impeccably maintained. The Kahana Reef manager was friendly and helpful. Area was very quiet - exactly what we wanted for a vacation to get away from our crazy busy life to recharge our batteries. King bed and bedroom very comfortable and quiet at night. Being on the top floor meant we did not hear neighbor noise and view was spectactular. Pool and access to the water was the best. There is a seawall - not a beach directly in front of the complex, but beach access is about 500 yards away. There are steps in the seawall so you can snorkel or launch your kayak and get in the water. Every day around noon we saw huge sea turtles at the seawall. I almost hesitate to mention this but for a fair review - unit #414 could use a little updating, kitchen on the small side-not great if you plan to cook a lot. The sleeper sofa was uncomfortable when used as a sofa to watch TV - it was rattan-style w hard cushions that slipped/ a more upholstered sofa would be softer for sitting and relaxing. If we return to Maui - we would definitely stay at Kahana Reef in one of the more updated units and would recommend Kahana Reef to friends.

The condo needs some updating, but our experience was a good one, this was my first trip to Maui and I enjoyed myself very much, my sister and I traveled to Maui to be with our father as he got married on Kapaula bay beach on 10-19-11, they also stayed at the Kahana reef along with other friends, we all enjoyed our stay very much and would like to return to this condo facility in the future.

Location, location!! The Kahana Reef is oceanfront, and being on the 4th floor in unit 414, my husband and I enjoyed unobstructed, panoramic views of the ocean and the islands of Molokai and Lanai. What a great way to start each day, drinking coffee on the lanai and looking at that gorgeous view. The unit itself was very clean, comfortable and well-supplied. We appreciated that the owners have a landline phone in the unit - with the use of a calling card we were able to take care of business matters while we were away. Many condos are doing away with landline phones because everyone has a cell phone nowadays. But cell phones are not secure for conducting bank business, paying bills, etc. The owners have also thoughfully provided plenty of movies and reading material. As a Kathy Reichs fan, I was delighted to find one of her books that I had not yet read and was able to finish it during the week that we were there. All in all we had a fantastic and memorable week at the Kahana Reef, #414, and highly recommend it as a wonderful place to stay in Maui.
Our only thoughts on improvements would be to do away with so many glasses, cups, dishes and provide a few serving pieces, like small platters, vegetable bowls, etc.

It was a great stay. The apartment was well equipped and very comfortable. The complex was quiet and well maintained. I do think it needs an upgraded kitchen and bath, but it was clean and funtional.
