Beautiful ocean view
Great location, great floor plan. Some areas could be a little cleaner. Bedroom chairs needed replacing due to sun damage (peeling) and bar stools cleaned.
Thank you for your feedback. We will let the owner of this property know about the chairs ASAP and alert the cleaning staff regarding the bar stools.
Please let us know if we can accommodate you again in the future.

Oceanfront Is No Lie! (And That's What We Wanted.)
Review by Todd M.
We greatly enjoyed our week-long stay at Royal Kahana # 409 -- it was our first time staying on the northwest side of Maui, and, we agreed, we'll be coming back to the area next time!The unit itself was depicted accurately in the photos -- updated relatively recently, offering spectacular views looking north and west, towards Molokai. Overall, the Royal Kahana building was conveniently located (near beaches -- the ones that weren't washed out during the Q4 2017 storms -- and grocery stores / restaurants) -- the common areas could've used a bit of updating, too, but that wasn't a negative, in my book. We didn't have to fight for lounge chairs, either, when we'd opt to get sun poolside, vs. the beach.Can't wait to return to Maui -- hopefully, next January...
Thank you so much for the great feedback! I am so happy to hear you enjoyed your stay and the unit was everything you wanted.
Definitely let us know when you plan to return. We would love to accommodate you again!

Review by Robert D.
Sorry, went to give my review and the email was gone. Room 409 at the Royal Kahana was a great place to stay. The view was great and spent a lot of time just soaking it up. The room was very clean and had a lot of amenities. To was close to all locations, and feel we would like to stay in room 409 again. I would recommend this as a great place to stay. We love eating in Lahaina and we had little travel time getting there. It was a very relaxed stay. Only item I would make a suggestion on was the rug in the living room. Very uncomfortable to walk on. Only reason for a 4-star rating was the rug. I have arthritis and walking on the rug Actually hurt the bottoms of my feet. But, minor item.
Thank you so much for your feedback, Robert. We appreciate you taking the time to let us know how we are doing!
We will advise the owner of this unit to replace the rug. It is important that all of our guests are comfortable.
We hope to accommodate you again.
The view was spectacular! The condo was in a good location with a beach to swim.
Review by Robin M.
My husband and I have stayed at The Royal Kahana three times now. This is the first time we've been there when there was no beach access. It's very sad to see how the erosion has taken away a huge part of the ocean front property. It would have been nice to have been warned there was no beach access, as one of our "requirements" when choosing a place to stay is to be able to get on to the beach easily for a morning stroll etc. The condo itself was lovely. For the most part clean except for the white chairs needed some attention. The king bed was one of the best we have found in our numerous trips to Maui! We saw some amazing sunsets and were able to sit on the lanai and watch the whales and other activities right there in front of us. There is ample parking and plenty of places to walk to for food and browsing if you don't feel like driving anywhere. Thank you for a wonderful place to enjoy our much needed vacation!
Condo Experince at Royal Kahana, Suite 409.
Review by Greg K.
Overall the experience was good. I enjoyed the condo very much. The amentites in the condo always met our needs. The condo was clean upon our arrival. It did require some paint touch up and the two chairs in the BR required repair due to useage. The property was well maintained, the pool was clean, BBQ area was neat and propane grills were very clean. The one downside to our condo visit is that we didn't have beach access to our condo that was suggested per the pictures provided. The owners need to inform potential renters that global warming has struck and what Hawaians euphemistically call beach erosion has marred the beach with sand bags, etc. The ocean view fromt condo was breath taking.
Beautiful Apt with an amazing view

It was great the only problem was its shower
Gorgeous Views - Great Unit
Review by Anthony B.
The view from the unit was incredible, sounds of the ocean at night was relaxing and the overall experience delightful.The unit is nicely decorated, stocked with cooking essentials from previous guests and has all the amenities you would need. Pool is great, location convenient and parking is easy.The only sad part was the lack of a beach due to th storms and the ocean taking back coastline throughout certain Maui beaches like Kaanapali and Kahana. That being said we loved our stay and the unit, would come again...

1st Class in all respects
Review by CARL P.
The unit was in best shape. Would like one or two more restaurants close to the Royal Kahana. The outer parking (next to the street) very dark and could use a lamp or two.
Beautiful Condo with a beautiful veiw
Maui condo is just as described. Nicely decorated with a beautiful view, even a view of the ocean from the bedroom. The cond had obviously been remodeled recently with updated furniture and a very comfortable bed. The condo is centeraly located to everything. Our only complaint would be no ocean access at this time, work was being done on the shoreline.
Review by Derek M.
Amazing. There were cockroaches there but not many (couple per day). Still awesome despite this.
Homeless in Maui !
Review by Terri B.
We just returned home from our 30 th wedding anniversary in Maui ! A long awaited trip ! I'm sad to say it started off horrible! We got to the Royal Kahana at midnight . We were exhausted but excited to finally get to our condo ! We downloaded the Epic Maui app that was wonderful ,, 24 hrs before we checked in it gave us a code to get into the Condo! , We knew an email was coming with the code but thought it was so easy to see the code in their great app ! We arrive check in at the desk ,but had to wait a while as the young woman working was the taking call after call about room leaks ! We thought this isn't good to hear ! Went to our room put in the code from the so , didn't work !! Tried over and over nothing ! i went back to front desk , now it's about 1:30 am , she's still taking calls about leaks two calls at a time !! I said our code isn't working can you help us ? She grabbed a skrew driver and off to 4 th floor we go !! She tried to jam the screwdriver into the lock box ! By now we are thinking what the heck ! I called the number in my app, epic reality, I called probably 5 times thinking well someone has to check calls ? The young girl frazzled , called her boss, all keys to units locked up ! If we waited til 6 am , she could get a key to open the door !! Now it's about 3:45 am ! No help ! cannot get in our room ! Very very unprofessional place. no offer to find us a room ! At 4 am we left very upset , I have never seen anything like this ! at 5 am ! I've never felt so upset ever stranded on vacation ! At 5 am we found a resort and booked 10 days !! I could go in and on , it took me a few days to get over this fiasco ! It turned out the code for the lock box in the app isn't the right code at all !! It's the code in your email !! I guess they shouldn't have an app that gives the guests the wrong code ! After a few days we went to the condo to look at it ! It was clean and newer , the resort is old and has a moldy smell !

This was such a wonderful place to stay! The view was to die for and the condo had everything we needed! Very clean. We will stay here again!
Wowie on Maui
Royal Kahana #409 was everything we expected and much more! It's a beautifully furnished,very comfortable & spacious condo with a fabulous oceanfront view. We enjoyed it very much there.
The apartment was a dream! The view is amazing and you sleep to the sound of the ocean. The apartment is just as beautiful as described in the pictures. The interior design is high-class with an eye for the details. We enjoyed the beach mats, snorkeling gear and parasol that's available. Washer and dryer come in handy to dry wet beach towels after swimming. Overall it was an amazing stay and we would love to come again.
Paula and Roger's 35th wedding anniversary Maui vacation
Review by Paula H.
Roger and I enjoyed our stay at the Jewel of the Royal Kahana! Beautiful views and room. Great location. It was so quiet yet close to shops, restaurants and excellent snorkeling locations. Room had everything we could possibly need for our stay. Will stay at the Royal Kahana again on our next trip to beautiful Maui!
3 weeks on Maui
Review by Julia S.
Had a wonderful 3 week stay at the Royal Kahana. Our unit was fabulous and the view was stunning. Helen and Tony were extremely helpful when needed. Ben, the security guard was lovely and kept the outside area tidy and safe. We would go back any time. My only comment would be that there were no serving bowls/plates, and no plastic glasses to take to the pool area, but we had everything else we could need. Thanks so much Epic.
Great Property - Management is a scam
Review by Rick F.
Really enjoyed the unit and the location was more than satisfactory. We had one issue with the shower handle when we first checked in that was quickly resolved but after we left we were notified by the management company that we were going to be charged an extra $500 for a crack in glass end table that we never touched and even knew it existed in the unit. As rental property owner myself I would have no problem paying for damage that we may have caused but in this instance both the wife and myself are still asking ourselves how we could've caused the claimed damage for a table that was never touched the entire time of our stay. Almost a week later and we are still waiting to hear back from the mgmt co. regarding the supposed damage. Be wary of the management company
Review by Chris G.
Overall 409 is a nice property.Weather was windy and rainy - not the properties issue....but,with the wind blowing we had 2 choices - sliders open and wind through the condo - sliders closed and an intolerable wind whistling/howling noise all the time.Condo is very nice condition and well furnished. Bed-headboard has seen better days and lets the condo down - its badly worn on one side and both lights have no shades. Two most important things in any stay are the mattress and pillows.Mattress in this condo is good.pillows are bad and need replacing.Location - Kahana was wet and windy all week and it was raining a lot in Kahana while just down the road at Kaanapali the sun was shining.Virtually no beach most of the time at the Royal Kahana and with sudden drop-off you wouldn't want to swim there so you really have to walk a ways down the shore.
Review by Lauren A.
Hosts were great to work with. We had a fluke issue with the lockbox on the door not working when we arrived. Turned out the battery had died between the time they checked it earlier that day and when we arrived that night. Was able to get a hold of Helen at Epic using the number provided, and she and another rep showed up 10 minutes later. They were very friendly and not put-out at all, took care of the problem, and we all had a laugh about it. Upscale amenities, plush bedding and towels. The shampoos/soaps could be a little nicer at this price, and it'd be nice to have tea provided for non-coffee drinkers. All in all, this was a great place!
We were quite pleased with room 409. It looked like it was very recently remodeled in a contemporary style which we loved. The view was oceanfront and located at the right angle so the sun never beat through the windows. The suite was very clean and everything worked great. I would definitely stay here again.
Very Happy with Our Stay
Review by Kevin M.
The building is an older one, though well kept and safe. The pool area is pretty humble and for the most part we were ignored by the staff, which was OK by us, since Epic Maui Real Estate was responsive to our needs. The beach in front of the building is narrow, nearly disappearing at highest tide, but the water was generally calm for us in September, and the view of Molka'i and Lana'i is exceptional. I mean that. The view is astounding. On clear days you can count a dozen canyons on Moloka'i with the naked eye. If you prefer a bigger, better beach, there are many choices within a 10 minute drive. (Park by the Sea Horse Restaurant and enjoy one of the best)The condo unit itself is as pictured on the website. It's tastefully furnished in what the wife called "Island Modernist". Everything is sleek and new. The kitchen is well furnished with the necessaries and adequate in size. The bath was very nice and the bedroom was an oasis, 2 walls almost almost all glass and facing the sea but covered in tasteful shades that allowed us to sleep in if we wished or nap in the afternoon. The view from the lanai is spectacular. Moloka'i often looks close enough to swim to. I have only small gripe. The unit doesn't really have central air. The bedroom is air conditioned and there is one vent in the kitchen, but the AC unit does not cool the entire condo. We were there while Maui experienced record heat and were often uncomfortable.
Happy in Maui
Review by Patricia J.
We loved the location. More relaxed & less crowed than the highrises down by Whalers Village but only a ten minute drive away. Perfect Location.

We had a wonderful time in Maui and the unit was extremely nice, updated and clean.
Review by Peggy E.
The condo was great in every way - perfect for a couple. We had a wonderful stay and I would recommend this property to anyone desiring a quiet location convenient to beaches.
Review by Mona W.
Great rental for a couple. We spent most of our time on the lanai enjoying the view. Love that the bedroom is on the ocean as well... It is so nice to be able to fall asleep to the sound of the water. Bonus - The property manager is great!
