Maui Kaanapali Villas is a low density resort located just north of Lahaina on the world famous Kaanapali Beach, which is rated one of the top ten beaches in the United States. The resort is set on 11 acres of beautifully groomed tropical gardens. The beach is a two-minute stroll from the unit.

The two pools were totally redone with new hot tubs added. Also located on the grounds is the beach side Castaway Restaurant. Whale watching is at a premium right from the beach from December to April. Enjoy the clean, beautiful gas grills in 3 different locations on the property, 2 of which are close by. Laundry facility and gym updated as of May 2019. Gym has all new equipment for your enjoyment (or torture)!!

There is no other condo like Banyan 242 on property. Custom cabinets, new appliances, stone floors and counter tops were installed in the kitchen. The bathroom was also redone. The same stone was used on the bathroom vanity as well as the large, walk-in shower.

The living area is equipped with a queen-size wall bed, comfortable couch and a table with 2 chairs. There is not a separate bedroom as this is a studio.

The wrap around lanai is perfect for relaxing and creating a cross breeze through the condo. Free wireless internet is also available in the room. One time cleaning provided at check out.

This unit sleeps 2 people. For cancellation policy see below availability calendar.

Free trolley to all of Kaanapali area which is also in walking distance. This condominium cannot be beat for price and location!

Daily facility fee of $25 paid at check in.

The unit was very clean and pleasant. The property manager was easy to reach and communicated with us about quick repair of small maintenance issues. The beach access was a little far but very nice. We did a lot of site seeing and driving around so didnt spend much time in the unit since it was a bit of a trek from a lot of the attractions and food stops we wanted to visit but we were glad to come back to a comfortable spot at the end of the day. It was nice to have the full kitchen as well.

I and my husband had a great time at the condo located at the resort, Maui Kaanapali Villas. We had a great time at the resort's beach and swimming pool! There is also a restaurant at the resort called Castaway Cafe by the beach. The condo was great with two patios and studio-like layout. The kitchen has some cookware, a microwave, a fridge, cutleries that you can make use of to cook a quick meal, store or warm up the food you bought.The condo also had snorkeling mask/gear, fins, table tennis bat, ball, swimming floats, raft, beach chairs and beach umbrella that we can use! In my opinion, this was the most cost-effective way to spend our 10 days at Maui at an excellent resort during the peak month of July! I would definitely stay here again when I return! As first-time renter:- 1. Make sure your reservation is confirmed at the Maui Kaanapali Villas by contacting them ahead of your travel. The reasons being - a) This condo is a vacation rental and different units at the resort are managed by different property management and Not the resort b) The property management has to communicate the Vrbo reservation to the resort management and let them know the room number so that you have a smooth check in when you arrive. 2. Keep the unit as clean as possible during your stay. You cannot avail the resort's housekeeping services during your stay. 3. Use the bath towels judiciously or wash them at the resort's laundry room. 4. We didn't know if there was an elevator to our condo. Ask.

We stayed for 12 days in June. The property is great and the location is perfect. Parking was no issue and the facilities are well kept. We will be returning next year!

We loved staying at the Maui Kaanapali Villas. This bungalow was right next to the parking lot and a short walk to the beach and pools. The beach at this location is the best, not too crowded, great sand. The rental was just what we needed with a small kitchen, bathroom with a big shower and a studio bedroom with a comfortable murphy bed. We ate breakfast and supper on the small patio. Would definitely stay here again.

Great unit and price for our vacation in Hawaii. Was great to have beach chairs and an umbrella included. We were just steps away from the beach and pool. Owner was responsive to all questions. Thanks for a great rental!

Great value if you are trying to get a decent place to stay with a kitchen and access to a beach. The location/property has a pool and restaurant and sits on the best beach. Sandy bottom no rocks and clear calm water. The condo location is a little walk from the beach and restaurant and pool. It isn’t easy going back and forth. Overall a great experience for the value!

What a great unit, though the air conditioning was out at the complex for two days. Still nothing we couldn’t hand by letting the tropical breeze in at night. Aloha.

This place was what the doctor ordered. Perfect size for 2. Thanks for the beach chairs, towels, cooler and kitchen. We used the grill 5 out of 7 days. The beach was perfect to snorkel on. Beach walk a plus

I couldn’t be happier with the location of this place! Just a short walk to my favorite beach, and a quick drive or trolley ride to other great spots around. 2 really nice pools, one that’s super close to the unit and really quiet. The condo itself was perfect for a couple! Nice kitchen, great big balcony and the bed was so comfortable. Really appreciated all the beach supplies as well that were included. I miss it already and will definitely look for this place when I come back!

A great condo unit in a beautiful resort complex. Short walk to watch the sunset every night, has easy beach access, close to Lahaina. Highly recommend.

The studio was as stated in listing. It is well equipped and comfortable. The entire resort property is comfortable. The Castaway Cafe is located on the property and host's a nice beach side bar as well as full restaurant. The owner was accommodating and very east to communicate with. Would definitely stay again.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for our first time in Maui and it was sooo beautiful and the room was super and nice and well stocked! We really appreciated the Sun chairs, umbrella, boogie board, snorkels, and cooler that came with the room! The beach that this resort is on was also much less crowded than others (and super nice to swim in!) but still a very short walk to whalers Villiage for a sunset dinner, shopping, or walking along the beach walk further down to ululanis shave ice! The double pools here were also super nice! Our only complaint was the loud highway traffic, but we didn’t spend much time in the room so it didn’t really bother us ;) the Kaanapali trolley brought us to and from whalers (for free), and the Maui islander public bus brought us from whalers when we wanted to go down to Lahaina or other town! We didn’t even need a rental car :)

This is a great little studio apartment at the Maui Kaanapali Villas which is an older but very cool resort in Kaanapali, home of the Castaway Café which has a great breakfast as well as a great happy hour. The studio itself is a little dated but feels very Hawaiian and the Murphy bed is really comfortable. Overall, great value!

We had an awesome time. Maui is amazing and the condo was just right for the two of us. Nicely located and very clean.
