There's much to see here. So, take your time, look around, and learn all there is to know about us. We hope you enjoy our site and take a moment to drop us a line.
Aloha, Laipni i Maui, (Hello, Welcome to Maui),
Mahalo for choosing to stay at one of the homes we represent here at the Royal Kahana. We are excited and thankful to have you as guests. For over 44 years, our family has owned at the Royal Kahana. We are a family based property management company. Dan and I manage multiple homes at the Royal Kahana ranging from studio homes to two bedroom oceanfront homes.
Maui, known also as “The Valley Isle,” is the second largest Hawaiian island. The island beloved for its world-famous beaches, the sacred Iao Valley, views of migrating humpback whales (during winter months), farm-to-table cuisine and the magnificent sunrise and sunset from Haleakala. It’s not surprising Maui has been voted "Best Island in the U.S." by Condé Nast Traveler readers for more than 20 years.
Whether you want to play or relax on Maui. Regardless if you have traveled here for work or pleasure, Maui has something for everyone.
The Royal Kahana Resort is a great location. It is a short drive to Whalers Village, an open-air mall that encompasses more than 90 fine stores and restaurants, outdoor stage with live entertainment and the Whalers Village Museum.
If you are seeking some retail therapy or want to nosh on fresh seafood and sashimi, participate in traditional Hawaiian activities or learn the Maui history of the whaling industry you will find it at Whalers Village.
Front Street in Lahaina is also a few minutes away by car and is the heart of art galleries, local events and various restaurants.
Another nearby attraction is the Kaanapali Golf Course; the Robert Trent Jones Sr. designed Royal North Course and Arthur Jack Snyder Kaanapali Kai South Course, offering 36 championship holes. Hawaii Golf is definitely on the bucket list for most golfers.
Please read through this welcome guide, we have included some essential information including emergency information, community and rental customs, area services, and other great information and sources.
Dan and I are eager to make your vacation enjoyable. Please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions. Please remember that now that you are part of our “ohana” (family), a (loyalty) “Kaamaina” discount will be applied to your next vacation stay with us. We appreciate you!
“In the spirit of Aloha, we strongly request “shoes off” while in the condominium. Also, this is a non-smoking condominium complex.”
We also respectfully request that you not sit on the furnishings when you are wearing suntan lotion or oil as it stains the fabric, also please refrain from applying spray lotions/oils while inside the home.

This information originates from the county Emergency Operating Centers as well as state and federal partners. If the Statewide Outdoor Warning Sirens sound (which is tested in the beginning of each month), turn on your TV or radio. All radio stations have voluntarily agreed to participate in the EAS. In the event of a power outage, some stations are equipped with back-up generator power and will continue to stay on air. Stay tuned to these stations for further information and instructions. Take the necessary protective actions as directed and keep tuned to your radio for further updates. During an emergency, a battery, hand-crank or solar-powered radio will be your primary source of information. If using a battery-powered radio, be sure you have enough batteries to operate your radio for at least 24 hours. Emergency Management information will also be available on television and cable TV systems. During a major power outage, the electric utility company will provide power restoration updates to the EAS. *** The owner/management company are not required by law to provide radios, flashlights, batteries etc…
