I had a room on the first floor, ocean side. I couldn't see the beach clearly from that level. But you can hear the ocean and see the plants. The garden area surrounding the grounds were very well kept. I thought the plants added a strong value to the property. The beach is walking distance, but you just have to cross a road to get to it. Other than that, you get a nice stretch of beach to walk in the morning. I thought the breakfast was adequate but not above average. Definitely take the food outside to the picnic area. I tried the hot tub; it was good, had some strong jets. The pool was small and on the cool side.

Not the best place to stay¬ ocean front
The property was comfortable and I liked the 1 bedroom unit. I was disappointed in the room and location overall. The room was advertised as ocean front but it was really "road front" with a large berm on the other side of the road so no real view of the ocean at all! And the "deluxe" room didn't look like the pic at all. I wouldn't stay at this property again.

Good place
It's a nice place to stay. Everything was clean Ann's people are very nice. The bed was to soft for me and the couch wasn't very comfortable.

Kohea Kai has the friendliest staff
The staff was very helpful, friendly and always available. The beach is right across the road. It was quiet too.

Check in was quick. I was greeted with Aloha and a smile, my room was ready on time as promised. I found the grounds to be well groomed, very pleasant and colorful. The staff at Kohea are very friendly and accommodating. The location is perfect, away from the hustle and bustle of the busy tourist traffic in town. Beach access is prime. There is nothing more to say except that I will be returning soon for another stay. Thank you Luseane and crew for making my trip to Maui fun and memorable!
