Comments from previous guests:
My husband and I had a great stay in your place. We loved the fact that there was a partial ocean view :) The unit was clean and had everything we needed for comfort. This is such an amazing location in Kaanapali - we keep coming back. The resort has the Castaway cafe on the beach with local well known entertainers several times per week. The beach is absolutely the best in the whole area. It is truly a gem, can not wait to come back. Thanks so much, Kara - Margaret, and Scott in Morthern CA

Always enjoyable/ 5/5 / Stayed Jul 2018/ Barbara O.
Love this resort! Great value, clean, friendly, nice location. We have stayed at this resort many times and keep going back because it's always a good experience, Submitted Jul 11, 2018
Wonderful location, great beach, comfortable accommodation/ 4/5 / Stayed May 2018/ Tracy G.
Studio room with lounge/dining room and kitchenette. It was a surprise to find a pull-down bed, as the only other studio we have had had a separate bedroom. But we were very happy with the comfortable bed. The lounge area was set up well with sliding doors to a good size balcony. The kitchen and bathroom were clean and very adequate. It was very nice that the owner leaves for the guests the use of beach chairs, towels, umbrella amongst other beach related things. All came in handy as you can't travel with everything. The use of the resorts facilities and parking is great. You can hire flippers and snorkel in a shack on the property. I would advise to travel with your own mask and snorkel if you can, more hygienic and fits better. The beach is the best in the area, and you only need to walk out a short distance to see fish. Very helpful staff. We had no trouble getting the room and enjoyed our stay. Submitted Jun 15, 2018
Great place to stay in Kaanapali! / 5/5 Stayed May 2018/ Alie C.
Our room at The Maui Kaanapali Villas was great! The grounds were beautiful, kept up really nice. The staff was very friendly. There’s a restaurant there called Castaway, great food! And the beach at the property was to die for! Beautiful soft sand and slow rolling waves. And there is a complimentary Trolly that runs everyday from the hotel down to Whalers Village. It picks up frequently all day until 9:30pm. So handy! We highly recommend staying at the Villas! Submitted May 25, 2018
Great little condo! / 5/5 Stayed May 2018 / Aubrey H.

Very Enjoyable Resort / 5/5 / Stayed Apr 2018/ Larry M.
We were very pleased with our stay at Kaanapali Villas in Maui. The condo was well appointed and close to the beach. The Castaways restaurant had very interesting dishes. If we come back we will definitely stay again at the above mentioned resort. Mahalo! Submitted Apr 30, 2018

Love MKV / 5/5 / Stayed Aug 2017/Kaitlin T.
MKV never disappoints. This condo's high ceilings make it feel spacious and the large lanai out back is great. Everything was clean and comfortable, and I appreciated the quick response with the condo's manager. Thank you for sharing your place! We will most definitely be back! Submitted Sep 9, 2017
Perfect Location! /5/5 /Stayed Jan 2017 / AUNTY LAURIE :)CLOSE BY, HI
We would highly recommend this VRBO unit to anyone who is looking to stay in the Kaanapali Area. It was clean, spacious, well maintained and stocked with plenty of towels and everything needed to make your stay comfortable. This unit even had a lanai to sit out on to enjoy the sunset or read the morning paper, where many other units did not. The property it self was beautiful and the perfect size to walk to everything it had to offer. Pools, out door bar-b-q's, beach, restaurant, bar, lounge chairs, etc. We saw Whales breaching and turtles swimming right out front when we were sitting on the beach. The installed path way is perfect for your morning walk and leads right to Duke's for a great dining experience for either lunch or dinner. We will definitely be staying RIGHT HERE in THIS UNIT again. It was all we needed! Mahalo for offering such a wonderful place to stay. Submitted Nov 16, 2016
First time vacation rental/ 5/5 / Stayed Dec 2015 / Frances A San Diego, CA
Unit is very peaceful, and provided a low key, less touristy atmosphere. Stayed for 7 wonderful nights. I was skeptical during the process prior to our trip, but once we checked in, everything fell into place. Great first time experience! LOVE the location! White sand beach and clear blue warm waters! The studio unit was bigger than I expected. Everything about this unit was larger than expected. The length of the unit and the high ceilings make it feel very spacious. The wood beam at the top of the ceiling is a great touch. The bathroom/changing room is a good size. Plenty of mirrors and lighting. Very comfortable for 2 people.The lanai had plenty of space to hang dry clothes. I like a firm bed, so the Murphy bed was great after a long day outdoors. No issues with the AC unit. Carpet felt surprisingly plush (soft on the foot). I believe I am heavy footed, so I quickly noticed that the floors seemed solid, so I wouldn't disturb the unit below us, and no noise complaints of neighboring units either. That's a big PLUS for this unit. Solid floors and walls; noise is not an issue. And there are plenty of parking spots available. No hassle of loading/unloading the car. Love this unit! If we come back to Kaanapali, I would stay here again.
