**Our home has fortunately been spared by the Lahaina Wildfires, and our neighborhood remains untouched by the recent events. We are located 3 miles south of Lahaina town. Please inquire directly regarding any questions.
Kalapana is truly “Privacy in Paradise” as the home is surrounded by 1.5 acres of lush tropical gardens and fruit trees, in the beautiful neighborhood of Launiupoko, Lahaina. This luxury home is fully air-conditioned, and features an expansive 'great room' spilling onto an outdoor lanai with unobstructed views of our neighboring islands. The pool captures the same views and is surrounded with ample outdoor seating and chaise lounges. The elevated jacuzzi for 8 is a great place to start your day or catch the sunset. Adjacent to the pool area is an outdoor shower made private with lava rock construction and foliage.
The 'great room' separates the bedrooms for maximum privacy with a master bedroom suite in one wing and 2 bedrooms, 2 full baths in the other. Above the great room is a spacious loft with pool table, wet bar, and Eurolounger (queen size). The master bedroom features a dual walk-in shower and oversized tub.
The loft includes a complete ‘business center' with printer/scan/copy capabilities. Bring your laptop and share your experiences while staying in touch. We are also equipped with APPLE TV and a SONOS music system.
The bedrooms are elegantly furnished with new Simmons Heavenly beds made famous in Starwood Hotels. There is a Heavenly California King bed in the master, Heavenly King and Heavenly Queen in the other 2 guest rooms. There is a Eurolounger in the Loft which converts to a queen bed.
Kalapana is at an elevation of 700 ft. and only 10 minutes from Lahaina . Total interior living space is over 3,500 sq. ft. plus a wrap-around lanai (terrace). Spacious walk in closets are featured in two of the bedrooms. There is an enclosed garage and fitness area which contains Powerblocks, and a universal gym. The neighborhood offers wonderful walking, hiking, and biking trails.
Kalapana is part of a farmstead and in addition to the gardens includes 2 organic fruit orchards. Guests are welcome to (and encouraged!) to pick the fresh papaya, avocado, banana, orange, grapefruit, guava, tangerine, lemon, lime, starfruit, and much more. Start your day with fresh fruit straight from the garden.
The chef's kitchen is open to the great room and enjoys the same panoramic views. The kitchen is fully equipped with appliances and service for 12. Catering services are available upon request.
The lanai and lawn areas include a gas BBQ, several seating and lounge areas, and a teak dining table for 10. The expansive lawn has a hammock for reading or napping, and is a great place for a game of croquette, bocce ball, or corn hole.
There are plenty of pool toys and beach gear for your use, including beach chairs, coolers, boogie boards, pool loungers and beach towels. We also have children's toys, a high chair, and pack and play you're welcome to use.

Kalapana Reviews




February 2024
We had a wonderful time at the Launiuopoko home! The views were amazing and we loved watching the sunrise and sunset each day. We were also fortunate to see whales splashing around. The house had everything you need and we cooked most meals in the well equipped kitchen. We also spent plenty of time in the pool and hot tub. Perfect way to end the day after exploring the island. Maya was very responsive. We had a slight issue with the air in the back rooms and she made sure it was handled quickly. Can’t thank her enough for making our vacation top notch. We highly recommend this home!

Amazing family Christmas trip. Everything was perfect. Location, views, accommodations, amenities, property and communication with Maya was absolutely fantastic. We could not have asked for a better place to spend our week in paradise.

I am one of three in a flight crew, and we stay in hotels all the time. We talked amongst ourselves, and thought it would be a change of pace to rent a house. This place couldn’t be any better. complete relaxation. Even though most of our trips are over to the big island if we stay there for any length of time we will definitely get an airline flight to Maui and stay in this property again.

The pictures are beautiful but don’t do it justice. The view is 360 degrees and so incredibly beautiful. The house was lovely and the beds were comfy. We would highly recommend and would stay again.

We had a group of 6 (3 couples) without children for the week and it was just what the doctor ordered. The house was perfect to relax and enjoy all that Hawaii has to offer. Many little extras in the house that make it much more than a "rental".

Maya is a wonderful host and the house is amazing. Very comfy and full of everything you need. It had everything needed for a fun day at the beach. We cooked some great meals with a fully stocked kitchen, the kids enjoyed the pool, we had two of our employees with us that enjoyed the workout equipment every morning. We played pool every night with our girls. Enjoyed the sunrise in the morning with a nice cup of coffee. Maya even gave us great pointers on shopping and was a pleasure to meet. We could see whales playing in the water right from the backyard. The house was close to all our activities and the sunsets are too die for. Would definitely book again.

This entire property is exceptional. Our host was so thoughtful and we always had exactly what we needed, down to shampoo in the outdoor shower and insulated mugs for around the pool. You really can just show up and start enjoying your vacation. I can’t say enough about this home, and how it truly made the holiday for us.

The home is very comfortable and exactly as advertised. We all enjoyed our stay immensely. There is enough space inside and out for 6 people. We cooked a lot (thank you for the fully stocked kitchen!!!), spent time in the pool and hot tub and explored the island from our "base camp". The sound system is wonderful, the pool table was a lot of fun, everything was great. Neighborhood is quiet and well kept. And, it's convenient to go and explore. Thank you, Maya!

Wonderful views, very clean, incredible yard, waking trail close.



October 2022
We set our alarm every morning for 5:30 am to watch to view come alive. As the sun rises, you start to hear the roosters crowing and the birds chirping, then the sky starts to light up. Sitting outside watching and listening was the perfect relaxing vacation. The pool and hot tub were used all day and night long. As the sun sets, the sky turns pink, the outside furniture was comfortable to sit and watch. Inside the home was just as perfect. The young adults loved playing pool. The kitchen had everything you needed. The AC worked great in every room. This rental had it all, we are already planning our next trip!

I can't begin to share all the reasons I love staying at this location. We have visited Maui many times and by far, this is my favorite place to stay. It is quiet, private, close to town and has the most incredible views around. I recommend and I will stay there again!

Nestled between ocean and mountains, with beautiful views of both and easy access to LaLahaina. Home layout was perfect for two families and one grandchild. Spacious layout with well equipped kitchen, bathrooms and plenty of water and beach toys. Pool furniture, pool and hot tub were enjoyed daily by all. We would highly recommend this home.

The property was amazing. All the comforts of home and then some. The house is loaded with fun. Pool floats beach gear, lawn games, board games, and pool table kept everyone busy during down time between our scheduled activities. Maya was excellent and made sure we had everything we needed. Best vrbo we've stayed in to date. 1000% times better than any resort. Private, beautiful, quiet, tons of extras. We cant say enough good things about this property. We will definitely be back next time we visit maui!

Impressive home in the upscale Launiupoko community. Breathtaking views from every spot in/around the home. The house sits in the foothills on Pu'u Kukui, a 5,700 ft mountain peak and part of an extinct volcano. Stunning views of the mountains looking in one direction, and panoramic views of the ocean and the island of Lanai in the other direction. 10 minutes to the central entertainment district of Lahaina, and 20 minutes from Kaanapali. The home is nicely appointed, the owner is very gracious and responsive. Couldn't have asked for a better stay, better views, or a better owner. MAUI NO KA OI (Maui is the best!)

Maya’s house is beautiful and well-kept. She provided everything needed for a stay at the property. We had one glitch, that being access to the entry when we arrived. Maya was contacted and within about 15 minutes the issue was resolved. The pool and hot tub are very clean. The hot tub heats up nicely and was so soothing. Thank you, Maya, for sharing your lovely home. We would definitely stay again. Kay

I don't even have the words to describe what an incredible property this is. Our family enjoyed 10 days here. Everything about the property is incredible--the space, rooms, comfy beds, big kitchen with everything you need, pool w/ floaties, games. You name it, this place had it. And the view? Bonkers. We could have stayed at the house all day just watching the whales breaching over and over again. Proximity to town/local beach was pretty good--about 10 minutes. Maya was super responsive about everything! Overall, we had a wonderful stay and cannot wait to come back someday!

This was out 4th trip to Maui and this property was my favorite by far. The view alone was well worth it! We watched whales every day right from the comfort of out back yard! The pool was great as well as the hot tub. The location is minutes from the beach, and other activities in the Lahina area. Our host, Maya, was quick to respond with any questions we had. I would highly recommend this location for its beauty, cleanliness, comfort and hospitality! Mahalo!!

This property is beautiful, views are stunning.. We stayed for two weeks and did not want to leave. The home is very clean and Maya was easy to work with. She responded to our questions promptly and offered helpful advice for our trip. We can't wait to return on our next trip to Maui.



January 2022
Spent 9 days here with my adult children and their spouses. The location was the best, the neighborhood was peaceful the house was absolutely perfect for both connection and privacy for 3 couples. The layout was excellent both indoors and out and extremely clean and perfectly stocked. Was not in want of anything. Cannot recommend this house enough!

First of all, the views are absolutely incredible and the pictures online don’t do it justice. As soon as you walk into the front door, you see beautiful expansive views of the pacific. The private sunsets were amazing! The house is very kid and family friendly with comfortable beds and pillows. My children utilized the available board games/pool table and lived in the pool when we were at the house. The kitchen is fully stocked with anything you may need to cook and there are beach toys, chairs, towels, and boogie boards available to use. There was a welcome book upon arrival which contains a ton of useful information regarding restaurants and activities in the area. The location is fantastic and is only a few minutes drive to downtown Lahaina, Whalers Village, etc. We had zero complaints and truly felt at home. We can’t wait to start planning another trip! Thank you for sharing your beautiful home, Maya!

Well the home was absolutely beautiful,. When we walked in the front door and seen the view out the windows it took my breath away. The home was very clean, beautifully decorated and had all the amenities you needed for your stay. The pool and jacuzzi were great and we used it daily. The backyard was beautifully landscaped and the orchard was fun to pick fruits daily. The worst thing about this home was that we had to leave it to go home. We felt like home in the house. My children and grandchildren truly loved our vacation in Maui. Mohalo, The Marx Family

Our extended family had an outstanding stay at this beautiful property, and we are already planning our return. The photographs and descriptions are accurate. This is likely the best maintained, best organized property that we have encountered in our years of stays at higher-end owner-property rentals. Spotlessly clean, very well-equipped with everything you will need in both the kitchen and on the water, all of top quality. Very well labelled and organized, an excellent detailed house manual, labelled drawers and switches, all enable you to quickly feel “at home” and able to find whatever you need. Pride of ownership clearly evident. Located in the beautiful and quiet high-end Launiopoko community up the mountain from Lahaina, on a large 2+ acre lot with its own small orchard. Convenient 10-15 minute access by car to the amenities and beaches of Lahaina and Kaanapali. Good ventilation throughout, air-conditioning throughout, great lighting, Sonus speakers in living room and in master bedroom, great pool and Jacuzzi. Lots of other nice features as noted in the property description. Friendly owner/manager Maya resides nearby, provides a personal welcome, and is able to provide advice or assist with any details or minor problems. Highly recommended.

We decided after spending 10 amazing days exploring Maui that we had found the perfect place to stay for our visit. Kalapana offers the most amazing views, easy access to great activities and restaurants, and is centrally located to explore all the island has to offer. We appreciated the peace and quiet in the evenings and enjoyed the brightness of the Milky Way devoid of the glare of civilization. The house itself is stocked with everything one could need from a blender to enjoy pina coladas and frozen drinks prepared from fruit picked from the orchard to a coffee bean grinder and two coffee makers to indulge in the local offerings. We also made use of the fun lawn games and even found time to relax in the hammock, all while enjoying the natural beauty of the mountains and ocean in the distance. The young people loved checking out the beaches, both near and far, and made good use of the body boards and snorkeling equipment that were provided. Truly, as Maya the owner told us, all we really needed to bring was a bathing suit and food! With all the wonderful restaurants nearby even the food part was optional. Although one could be quite content never leaving the property, we did not want to miss any of the beauty the island had to offer. In nearby Lahaina, we went on a snorkeling and whale watching Zodiac trip to Lanai with Ultimate Whale Watch. We were treated to an incredible display of humpback whale activity including the breaching of both baby and adult whales. It rivaled a National Geographic documentary! We took the all day drive along the Road to Hana to view the wild side of Maui and were not disappointed. The amazing waterfalls and unusual black sand beach were the highlights of that trip. But the reward at the end of the day of a delicious dinner at Flatbreads in Paia was in the running! Our son the photographer was determined not to miss the Haleakala sunrise so after a marathon phone session to secure last minute tickets the more adventuresome of the group headed out at 3 AM to reach the summit. They were not disappointed. At that time of the day it was a relatively quick trip and they were back in time for breakfast! If we are ever fortunate enough to return to Maui, we would definitely stay at Kalapana again. We appreciated the beautiful home and all Maya's wonderful suggestions and knowledgeable answers to my many questions. Thank you for a memorable vacation.

Every once in a while something everbody says is great really is. That’s the deal with this place. Our family of five spent a week here in March, {2019} and it was wonderful in every way. The pictures in the listing are completely accurate except that they really can’t convey the expansiveness of the view which includes not only a fantastic sunset but also the moon reflecting on the Pacific at night. The house is very well equipped with everything you need to pull in the driveway and basically start living essentially like you would at home. There is a full complement of convenience items such as a nice washer/dryer in the (very clean} garage complete with washer tabs and fabric sheets, same thing for the diswasher in the kitchen, Keurig pods, spices and a full set of kitchen implements. These things sound small but they make it very easy to just show up and begin enjoying Maui. The location of the house was perfect for us. You can get to downtown Lahaina in less than 10 minutes and are basically central to everything you might want to do. The property has an orchard from which you are invited to pick fruit. The pool and hot tub provide a nice means of relaxation after “playing hard” during the day. And last but certainly not least is Maya, the property owner, who is extremely responsive and helpful. She steered us in the right direction multiple times with very helpful local knowledge and advice; basically concierge level service. If/when we come back to Maui, we won’t even look anywhere else.

What a beautiful place! We brought the kids here, for their 1st time. We couldn’t have been more pleased staying here vs a hotel. Maya is so lovely and charming, as well as this house. We wanted for nothing & the views from the yard were absolutely beautiful. We got to watch whales from the yard too. It was wonderful to wake up, grab a cup of Joe & have breakfast with the family. We’re still reminiscing and missing Maui very much. We will def be back here. So glad we decided to stay here. Just beauty and serenity anywhere you look. Everything is a short ride away if you choose to go out to eat but grilling was good too. Thank you again for sharing your piece of heaven with us. XO
