Interior The interior is 1040 sq. feet, but if you add the 2 lanais, it has a total of 1450 sq. feet. Facing the ocean upstairs is the master bedroom with a view of the two neighboring islands of Molokai and Lanai. Included within this bedroom is a large mounted TV with DVD and Blue Ray. The washer and dryer are in one of the closets in the master bedroom.The second bedroom has a queen and twin bed along with its own bathroom. There is another TV in there to help the kids wind down in the evening after a long day of swimming and touring. Downstairs is an open floor plan. Upon entering the unit, you are immediately welcomed by an incredible view of the ocean. The kitchen, dining room, living room and second lanai are all on the first floor. Watch boats (and in the winter, whales) sail by while you cook meals in the modern kitchen with granite counters, pecan cabinets, and all the appliances you’ll need for a gourmet feast or hot dogs.The unit is decorated in the old Hawaiian style with reproduced petroglyphs above the sliders. They were copied from the 900 year old carvings found south of Lahaina. The sofa bed makes into a queen but is only 6 feet long. It is comfortable, and we sleep down there if we have given up our master bedroom to friends staying with us. Enjoy breakfast on the lanai, and look across the ocean to the neighboring islands. There is another TV here in the living room, also.The entire length of one wall is floor to ceiling glass, so it makes the unit seem twice the size. Plus you can see the ocean from any point in the downstairs area.Wildlife Our bay has 7 resident Giant Green Sea Turtles, with “Bubba” being over 6 feet long from head to tail. Approach them slowly and keep your arms against your body. They’ll accept you as a fellow swimmer. Looking eyeball to eyeball from just a few feet a part seems to establish an understanding that we all have an obligation to preserve the beauty of Hawaii. Snorkeling with these gentle giants is an experience not soon forgotten. Having a bounty of beautiful island fish adds to the experience.One female Monk Seal has found our bay a safe haven. Every couple weeks she arrives about daylight and stays till the evening, sunning herself and occasionally throwing wet sand over her body. Since there are only about 500 left world wide, picking our bay is quite a compliment. Touching or harming her in any way is a federal crime, but then again , who would want to irritate 600 to 800 pounds of seal?In late September we are usually graced with the arrival of about a dozen Eagle Rays who use the quiet surf on our beach for mating purposes. They are beautiful with their backs looking like the sky over Montana at night. While they are supposed to be harmless, their furious activity keeps us from approaching too closely.Hawaii tax#W0139079401

The Kahana Sunset condo village is a beautifully maintained complex right on a gorgeous little beach that is perfect for kids (ours are age 5 & 7). Also, the swimming pool was perfect for our kids after they got tired of the salt water and sand for the day. The condo itself was very comfortable and well-maintained and had everything we needed for the week, even boogie boards and a cooler! There is a little grocery just up the street, so it was also very convenient. We will definitely be back!

Loved kahana sunsets! The unit was great and the beach was even better, we would definetely stay here again! My only complaints were our tv volume didn't work but I'm sure had I said something early on it would've been fixed and on the final day our oven malfunctioned and wouldn't stop beeping...no one would help us at kahana sunsets since it was a Sullivan property so we had to listen to it for 3 hours while packing to go home!

An absolutely delightful place to stay! The location was spectacular with incredible snorkelling including lots of green sea turtles right out the front of the resort! The accommodation was perfectly designed, functional, comfortable, clean and extremely well stocked, providing everything necessary to ensure a relaxing, easy holiday. The personal trip notes and travel tips left by the property owners were gratefully appreciated and provided secrets about Maui that we loved discovering. I honestly can not recommend this accommodation highly enough! Fantastic! Thank you!
