We enjoyed two full weeks in this oceanfront unit on the top floor of the building. The lanai has a table for four, so it is spacious enough to enjoy meals and it is protected from the wind.
The unit is nicely redone with granite countertops and tile floor and shower, and pleasant lighting. The pictures are accurate. The king bed is very comfortable. There is a large tree directly across from the lanai and this partially obscures the view of Molokai, but looking south there is an expansive view of the ocean and the island of Lanai. Whales in the distance, sea-turtles up close, and beautiful sunsets.
There are a couple of minor items that could make the unit nicer (the lamps are little dated, and there are no hooks to hang things on.) The well-supplied kitchen is really fine and a pleasure to work in--just bring your own sharp knife (yes, you can pack this in a checked suitcase.) Boogie boards, swim noodles, styrofoam cooler, beach chairs etc. are in the closet.
Kahana Reef is constructed with concrete walls so the only noise you'll hear is if you have neighbors who are talking too loudly on their lanais. We didn't experience this issue at all--tenants were very thoughtful. The grounds and plantings are immaculate and you only have to walk next door to enjoy swimming at a nice, uncrowded beach.
We would definitely rent here again and will recommend this particular unit to our friends. Chase'n Rainbows was great to work with setting up our rental.

What a beautiful home, very nicely updated with quality stainless appliances. Many extra touches that make a stay so enjoyable, such as all the needed household supplies and beach gear. Loved the lockable screen door to allow wonderful cross ventilation-no aC needed. A oh my factor of watching the whales in a distance and the turtles close up. Only wish would be to have a washer and dryer in the condo.
Thanks for a super stay. We definitely recommend Chase 'N Rainbows to help one find the perfect setting.

Our stay in Maui, Hawaii, was wonderful, but mixed. We arrived at Kahana Reef and were disappointed that all we could hear from the flat was the man next door talking loudly on his cell phone. It seemed to noisy at first, but after we called Chase 'N Rainbows about it, the situation seemed to calm down. Indeed, the noise from close quarters of the condo complex (many units) did quiet down, and we were able to hear the ocean every morning. Maui is built up on this side of the island, so one will have to expect this sort of experience. Otherwise the flat itself was wonderful, great kitchen, well appointed, airy. The bedroom has no windows except very tiny ones at the ceiling on one side which was an initial disappointment but we eventually grew to like that too. The location is right on the water which was wonderful. Busy street however when you enter the units. Overall, we really liked it and would return. Management tried hard to assist us with what was objectionable and we felt they were very helpful, and we were very grateful!

If I could give this condo 3.5 stars I would. We ended up having mixed feelings on the unit but overall I think I would recommend it because it is a good deal.
Pros: Beautiful kitchen, bathroom, and views. Well decorated, clean, and very modern unit- not tacky like many other units I've seen for a similar price. The condominium as a whole is in a really nice and quiet location away from all of the tourists at Kaanapali but still within walking distance of a few bars and restaurants (including maui brewing company :) ) and convenience stores. Also within walking distance of a few small but sandy beaches - Highly recommend the beach closest to the south, just about a five minute walk. A very nice grill and pool downstairs as well.
Cons: The bed was extremely uncomfortable... just about as hard as the floor. There were no spices or handy cooking foods of any kind in the kitchen which was inconvenient. We would have left some ourselves but we were pretty sure they would be thrown out. There is no iron either. One of the main issues we had with this unit is that there was no comforter on the bed when we arrived. About four or five days into our stay the comforter shows up in a dry-cleaning bag on the floor while we're gone. We were fairly uncomfortable that someone had entered our unit without letting us know prior and they'd just left it on the floor... and that we didn't have a comforter for the first half of the week...
so overall I would say that the pros out-way the cons, especially for the price. However these are issues people should know before renting.
Beautiful room, view and location - we didn't want to leave!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Kahana Reef. The correspondence with the rental agency through e-mails was always prompt with questions/concerns and information. The room was clean and nice. We needed the internet and it worked well. I even enjoyed the laundry facilities! A great location for enjoying other points of interest and close to most everything we wanted to do and see. We would definitely want to return to this unit. (and others if they are renovated as this one was).
Satisfying experience !

Dealing with Chase'N Rainbows was no problem at all. Photo editing makes the unit look fancier than it actually is but it's decorated very tastefully. We had problems with the miserable sofa bed .. kept sliding off while viewing TV. Mattress lousy according to our son but you will wake up to the the sound of gentle waves!! Master bedroom was fine ! It's a very clean and well equipped unit and over all we enjoyed our stay there. Very quiet and pleasant environment. Loved the mornings having coffee/breakfast on the balcony. Not a bad view either ! We knew before renting there's no beach but the property has a small pool. Lots of great choices of beaches but it requires some driving time. The cleaning fee charge equates to one night of lodging which is excessive considering the space. Possibly the going rate on Maui but it's worth checking into. Since we were very busy sightseeing limited time was spent on the location. I would not hesitate renting there again if the sofa bed is history. We had a great dinner on the patio of the Napili Kai resort which is fairly close. Limited choices of restaurants in the vicinity. The bottom line is probably having beach access or not.
Lovely quiet location

This rental condo is very upscale compared to others in the same price range. I like this area of N. Kaanapali -- not so busy or noisy as the other "main drag" locations. The bed is comfortable. The amenities upgraded. Well done!
