For many visitors to Maui the idea of staying in a private tropical beachfront estate appears impossible or just an idyllic scene of yesteryear. But a stay at the Kahana Nui Villa will make this dream come true.
As you enter through your own automatic wood gate, you’ll find yourself immediately greeted in the courtyard with a towering Monkeypod tree surrounded with lush tropical gardens. Many people immediately wander around the house first and are astonished to discover Kahana Nui is carefully nestled steps away from Maui’s incredible marine sanctuary. It is not unusual to spot spinner or bottlenose dolphins playing, or humpback whales breaching just off shore. Sometimes you’ll find giant green sea turtles (honu) or even endangered monk seals sunning themselves on the sand. Early risers, may wake to enjoy a stunning sunrise and discover local fisherman casting their traditional nets or spear diving for octopus (tako) in the shore break.
Looking toward the ocean the views from the front of Kahana Nui stretch from the south shore of the island of Lana’i to Mokiniki just off shore of the north east edge of Moloka’i. These views are not just from the tranquil yard, but even from two stories of glass lined lanais not to mention from the comfort of the king size beds in four of the oceanfront master suites facing west inside the home.
The house itself is centered in the middle of the estate on large poles rising up towards the clouds. As you ascend the stairs and enter you are surrounded with unique architecture adorned in grand details commissioned by Indonesian artisans. Referred to by the locals as “The Bali House”, Kahana Nui is a six bedroom, four and a half bath luxury oceanfront home on the beach in Kahana conveniently positioned between historical Lahaina Town and the exclusive resort area of Kapalua on the west shore of Maui. The open-air and open-floor house was specifically designed to take advantage of the gentle trade wind breezes. The front of the house features a massive retractable floor-to-ceiling glass wall that easily slides away to create a refined indoor/outdoor oceanfront living and dining experience. On the rare occasions when the tradewinds ebb, each bedroom is equipped with their own individual air conditioning units.
For beach lovers, there is “no place like home” when you stay at Kahana Nui. Mere steps across the pillowy soft lawn you have your own escape to swim, snorkel, stand up paddle all directly in front of the home. However, if you like adventure some of the world’s most renowned beaches are just minutes away – Kaanapali Beach to the south and Napili Bay to the north. However, most guests find themselves mostly swimming in the freshwater Honu pool, sunbathing poolside listening to the waterfall, or relaxing in the large hot tub sipping a Mai Tai with the jets on high.
Love golf? Simply take a left out of the gate and idle north on Lower Honoapiillani Road (known around here as “sLower road.) where just minutes away are both the technically challenging PGA Plantation Course and it’s more approachable sister The Kapalua Bay Course.

We loved everything about this home, the bedrooms were large and each of the master suites, 4, had amazing views of the ocean and walk out decks, we could not have been happier. Suzy was very nice to talk with and if we return to Maui I would love to stay here again. A true Hawaiian paradise!
The owner, Suzy, was very responsive to any questions or needs that we had during our stay. One of the highlights of our trip was Chef Bryce, a Suzy referral, who came in to make a fabulous dinner for our whole family, some who are gluten free, on one of the last nights of our stay.
The house itself is perfectly planned so all 11 of us had room to ourselves, as well as great gathering spots for all to be together. No details were overlooked…truly a paradise!
If you had to spell the word “Paradise” it would be spelled “KAHANA NUI VILLA.” This is one special place in the world.

The house is so beautifully detailed and the layout so well planned out that even with 11 of us, we never felt on top of each other. The view from the deck(s) are just breathtaking and the hot tub and pool got a lot of use.
– GG & Family
Going to sleep each night listening to the waves crashing was awesome! It was so nice that we really didn’t want to go out to eat we just cooked there! There were no problems whatsoever but we’re confident that if there was an issue it would be taken care of! So many wonderful memories made here with our family!
– Jamie W.
This house is really great, definitely the way to go if you’re taking your whole family on a vacation to Maui. We hope to stay at Kahana Nui Villa again the next time we visit Maui!
– Pat N.
The panoramic views are spectacular both inside & outside. The house is gorgeous and accommodating with room for all to enjoy. The surroundings are lush, private and spacious. The fountain, pool and spa, along with the tropical breezes and ocean waves made it a paradise for all.
We highly recommend the Kahana Nui Villa to anyone who want to have a private pool & spa with sunset views that you can only enjoy in person.

The folks that own this house were absolutely committed to our comfort. They provided a concierge service that helped us book all of our activities – Luau, snorkelling excursion, golf and volcano bike ride. It’s a classy property owned and operated by kind classy people.

We felt totally spoiled, and we can’t imagine going back to Maui and staying anywhere else!
