We had the pleasure of staying at Barbara's VRBO in Maui Kanaapali Villas, and we cannot express what a great experience it was. The unit has breathtaking panoramic views of the azure ocean and lush greenery from the comfort of the private balcony. Situated in a convenient prime location - steps to the beach, short drive to shops and grocery stores. Barbara was a great host, ensuring we enjoyed our stay and that everything was satisfying. We felt like valued guests, and her responsiveness to any queries or requests further enhanced our overall satisfaction. Our nine-day stay was a great experience, from the stunning location and well-appointed accommodations to the exceptional hospitality of the host. 5-star stay.

The resort itself is amazing, we enjoyed having the coffee ready in the lobby first thing in the morning and seeing all the friendly staff. The pools are spacious and warm and the landscaping impeccable. The adjacent beach is the best on the island. The condo has an amazing view of the ocean and had everything we needed. Barbara is quick to respond to any email and any question. It is obvious she wants your vacation to be as seamless as possible. I would not hesitate to recommend her and plan on returning next year.

We greatly enjoyed our stay at Barbara’s unit. The unit was very clean, was just as advertised, and we felt comfortable and welcomed at all times. In our short time in Maui, we made many connections with staff members who were most kind and hospitable. The unit itself had everything that we needed (comfortable beds, tv, wifi, full kitchen with everything needed for cooking or keeping left over food in containers, double bathroom sinks and a shower/bathtub with good pressure and hot water). Barbara herself was an excellent communicator and we feel blessed and very lucky to have made her acquaintance through the booking and staying process. Without a doubt, we would book another trip to Maui and we would absolutely book with Barbara again. The Kaanapali beach that the unit is located next to is a beautiful beach (we feel it is one of the nicest beaches in Maui that allows for swimming, snorkeling, paddle boarding, and whale and turtle watching). The location is also close to restaurants and Whalers Village that is all within walking distance. We can’t wait to go back!!!

Great condo for us to stay in Maui. Footsteps to the beach and a nice pool and hot tub to relax all day. The condo itself is nice; me and my wife and 2 girls were able to squeeze in and had enough room to hangout. The pullout bed is big enough for two small children, I wouldn’t recommend it for two children over age 12. The condo also has beach chairs, umbrella and snorkel gear which we enjoyed. The Maui Kaanapali Villas were not too big, but big enough to feel like a really nice overall experience.

This condo had the perfect layout and was very clean and comfortable with all the amenities needed including a nice, full kitchen and extras including baking trays for heating up cookies (!) and beach chairs/umbrella to take to the beach. The view was amazing, with great views of the ocean and grounds. The property at Maui Kaanapali Villas is right on Kaanapali Beach -- gorgeous with beautiful landscaping and flowers, a warm pool that stays open late, and shuffleboard. Located right on the beach walk makes this an ideal location. Host was friendly and helpful and made the reservation process smooth and ideal.

This property is part of the MKV resort, which means that you get all the convenience of staying in a resort/hotel. The resort is just a short 3 minute walk from the beach, and the unit itself has an ocean view. I have no complaints about my stay - it was perfect. The host was very helpful and provided clear and professional instructions for the check-in process, which made my first time Vrbo experience very smooth. She also went above and beyond to accommodate our request for an early check-in, which really put our minds at ease even though we ended up not needing it due to a delayed flight. Overall, it was a fantastic stay and I would highly recommend this property.

We just got back from our 10 night stay and it was truly the best vacation I've had on Maui to date. That's saying a lot because my previous experiences were also very good. Barbara is definitely an exceptional host. Even with a small blip (that was 100% out of her control), Barbara was quick to reply and extremely concerned about said blip. We couldn't have asked for anything more from the property or Barbara. The Condo was perfect for our family of three and had everything we needed right down to spices and beach toys. Not to mention the view! What a treat to wake up to that every morning. The property grounds are so picturesque and the ocean view was so much more than we expected. We can only hope to be able to stay in this condo again! :)

I would come back to this unit in a heart beat!!!The only reason I gave this unit a 4 was the bathroom needs updating. I think it is the original from the 60's. We got instant reply from the owners any time we had a question and was handled immediately. You can't get any better than that. This unit was very spacious for a studio with full kitchen. The balcony has just enough room for chairs to sit out and have your morning coffee with morning shade facing the ocean. (my favorite part of the unit) The property has a little restaurant that has a great breakfast and bar. The beach is RIGHT THERE!! You walk to the right about 5 minutes and you are at airport beach with amazing snorkeling. Do not hesitate to book this unit. Thank you so much Barbara and Howard for your hospitality. Oh, also best massage ever from Olivia and Maryse.

This was our first stay at this condo but it won't be our last. The condo is located just north of the main Kaanapali condo row and away from its associated crowds yet within a 20 minute walk if you like that sort of thing. The restaurant on site was fantastic (we had breakfasts, lunches and dinners there). There is small market within a 10 minute walk and a full grocery store within a 20 min walk. Instacart also delivers to this condo (which we used as well). The beach rental shack was also great (we used it all week) and much cheaper than nearby locations. The unit is owner managed and the owners were super responsive and communicated really well. Can't wait to stay here again.

New appliances, updated paint etc. Clean, easy to access. Great view and the AC works fine on the hot afternoons. We'd rent it again if we get to go back.

This is the perfect location for walking to shops and restaurants. It’s tucked in by larger resorts but has a smaller less crowded feel. The beach is beautiful and Lon crowds. The resort has beautiful grounds, pool and a delicious cafe!

We enjoyed our 2-week stay at this property. We loved the Kaanapali Beach location and access to so many amenities. The property was very well kept, clean and had many useful kitchen and beach equipment. The property manager provided us with helpful information regarding activities and restaurants and tourist sights. She communicated with us throughout the rental process and she was very accommodating. Loved the beautiful view from the lanai. I would definitely stay at this property again!


Kelly F.

We had a great stay here. The view was beautiful and the room was spacious enough for our family of 4. We didn't really use the kitchen but it was nice to have that option available. The amenities in the room and on the property were great!


Brian B.

We visited areas each side of the island while staying here. It was a great condo to come back to each night. The beach within walking distance was amazing! We wanted to sample everything on this trip, but will probably spend a lot more time at the beach close by next time. We will be back!



May 2022
If you need to unwind and escape this is definitely the rental for you. The room is equipped with a kitchen and beach equipment to relax and snorkel on the beautiful beach which is about 5 mins walk from rental.

Barbara was easy to talk to and even let us reschedule our trip due to COVID. The condo is in a great location with only a few steps to the beach. We will miss watching sunrise and sunset on the lanai. They even provided boogies boards, umbrellas and beach chairs that we were able to enjoy.

This location was amazing, right on the beach - and the staff/checking process was very easy. Communication with the host was easy and convenient, and they even provided a list of suggestions prior to arriving. Not a single issue when checking in or with communications with the host. The beach is a 2 minute walk from the complex, and out of all the beaches we visited on Maui, this was our favorite. If you are looking for various restaurants or places to have drinks, you will have to drive about 10 minutes, which was never an issue for us. Overall highly recommended!

My daughter and I stayed here for spring break 2022. The property was very well kept. And small enough that was a quick, easy trip up to the room for lunch and and beach was 3 min walk away. Staff was always friendly and helpful. We traveled throughout the whole island and loved the west side the best. The nicest Safeway grocery is 3 miles away. Overall, 5 stars. My only ask would be that more realistic pictures of the balcony be displayed. The balcony is very small, there is a tiny table and 2 chairs out there but it’s maybe 12 inches wide.

We had an amazing time in Maui and this condo made our stay even more perfect! The condo is beautiful, roomy, and clean and has everything you could need for your vacation.....from kitchen appliances to cooking supplies to beach gear--including chairs, an umbrella, a cooler, and boogie boards. The view from the lanai is absolutely breathtaking and we enjoyed watching plenty of whales and beautiful sunsets over the ocean from there. The resort itself is just as wonderful! The grounds are lush and just so pretty and peaceful. We loved the two pools and hot tubs (main and "quiet" to choose from depending on mood) and the food and drinks (best Mai Tai!) at Castaway Cafe. All staff were very friendly and helpful throughout the entire property. The beach here can't be beat for swimming and especially snorkeling as you have easy walking access to Kahekili Beach. Being on the Kaanapali Beach Path is a definite plus too as you can walk to many restaurants and to Whaler's Village. We also love that MKV is low key, quiet, and not as crowded as the other more commercialized resorts along the strip. The location of the resort is great because it is just a short drive to so many good places including the northwest beaches, downtown Lahaina, and Kahului to name a few. Even more importantly, Barbara was a complete pleasure to work with....from our first contact, throughout planning, during our entire stay, and all the way up to our return home. Everything was stress free thanks to her! She was very responsive, provided great information, allowed us to reschedule due to the pandemic, and even gave us access to the resort and showers after check out on our last day since our flight didn't leave until 11:30 pm! We also had a small maintenance issue during our stay that she addressed immediately and was fixed within hours. As you can probably tell, I can't say enough good things about our stay and I highly recommend this rental!

The Maui Ka’anapali Villas property fronts the best beach on Maui. Low density & a relaxed atmosphere make this the perfect vacation spot. The whales were plentiful and snorkeling was just steps away at Airport Beach (Kahekili). The espresso braised short rib dinner at the Castaway Cafe on site was to die for. Our condo was clean, well-stocked and very comfortable. The owner, Barbara, is fantastic to work with. She is very responsive and is committed to make your stay the best it can be. Mahalo, Barbara, and see you next year!



January 2022
We loved our stay at the Maui Kaanapali Villas. The staff here are incredible, kind and welcoming. The room is clean and has a lovely view that faces the ocean. The area is beautiful and nearby the ocean and most area attractions. There is also a convenient trolly that hits major resorts and the whalers village. The room is just a couple minute walk from the gorgeous Ka’anapali beach on the less crowded side of black rock. We had a minor issue come up that was caused by a major storm during our stay, but Barbara responded quickly, and the problem was taken care of before we got back from the morning yoga that’s offered on site a few times a week! She was very responsive and also provided a ton of helpful information on the area. She has a list of restaurant recommendations in the room that we used daily. The kitchen is well stocked—more so than many other vacation rentals we’ve visited. The room has a couple beach chairs and boogie boards as well as a beach umbrella. Overall, it was a wonderful and relaxing stay, and I will definitely book again with Barbara the next time we’re in Maui.

Enjoyed staying at Maui Kaanapali Villa, it is very quiet. Location is great, close enough to walk to "Whalers Village" and to get a massage at "The Spa at Black rock"! Exercise room is very nice with ample equipment and clean. Barbara is very nice and helpful to work with.

We loved our stay at Barbara’s condo. The view was amazing. Our biggest decisions were whether we wanted to go to the pool or beach first. We enjoyed walking the beach every day. There is a trolley that you can ride to Whaler’s Village. Barbara was great to work with. I would highly recommend!

Great location, beautiful ocean view! The only thing I gave 4 stars is the cleanliness. Many kitchen utensils have not been washed for a long time and become dusty. Also during our stay we saw huge cockroaches in the room several times.

Love Barbara's room 517. Good view of ocean and mountains out the sliding glass doors. Room was very clean and well equipped. All appliances necessary to cook and eat in room. Big savings over having to eat out every meal. Property is very open with beach frontage. Two pools with plenty of seating throughout the day. Castaways restaurant on site for refreshments during your pool/beach visit. Barbara is very accommodating and communicative. Would definitely rent from her again.

Waking up to an ocean view and walking to the beach for a morning snorkel, relaxing by the pool and being able to always find an open chair and never, ever having the beach feel like it's crowded made staying here an absolute joy! Barbara was a fantastic communicator and really made us feel welcome. She went out of her way to arrange for an early check in when she knew our arrival time. I could easily make this an annual trip and stay here every time!

This was a wonderful place to stay at. The Maui Kaanapali Villas have everything you need for a little R&R in Maui. Fantastic location that is pretty much near the heart of things. Just 10 minutes from Lahaina and 15-20 minutes from Kapalua Bay. The resort itself has a nice swimming pool next to a great restaurant that had live music most of the evenings we were there. The studio was nice and clean and included a fully functional kitchen. Barbara was very helpful and answered all of our questions promptly. We will definitely try to stay there again!

The property is well kept and clean. Access to the perfect beach is just beyond the swimming pool and the Castaway Cafe. The property has tiki torches throughout that give you a real Maui experience. We watched the sun set each night from the beach or Castaway Cafe. The property is located within a few miles of Lahaina and the Whalers Village. We had a wonderful experience.

We had a wonderful stay! Barbara's condo is great, and she was very helpful and responsive while setting up the reservation. The condo is not large, but big enough (there were four of us so we had the couch pulled out to a bed the whole time). Very nice to have a full kitchen with cooking supplies and dining plates and utensils. The resort is very welcoming and accommodating. Walk right to the beach, which is amazing. Pool, shuffle board, bbqs...I even had a fabulous massage. We would absolutely stay here again <3

The beach and resort were great and the location was convenient to Lahania. The unit could use some updating. Shower worked but you could not use the bathtub, and we thought the mattress needed to be replaced. We also were told at check in that the laundry facilities were not working even though we had checked with the owner a few days before our stay to confirm there was one on site. It was nice to have the chairs and umbrella that were provided.


Ashley B.

We loved everything about this resort! The room was plenty of room and had a beautiful view. It was comforting and nice having a concierge and an overview of the island/excursions on our first morning. The easy beach access and boardwalk was so nice! We loved walking in the morning. :) the only complaint we have is that the maid knocked on our door multiple times before our check our time of 11:00am. The first time she knocked we answered and told her to come back in about an hour. 20 minutes later, she walked right in! That's the only complaint I have! Everything else was perfect!

We had a great time & pots and pans were provided in condo which made life easier. Nice view from little patio. Pool and spa is great and so is the restaurant that the villas has on site. We will be returning. Everything was clean as well. The trolley was awesome, took us to whalers village and black rock beach ( our favorite spots ) so driving was not needed. Thank you for an amazing trip.

We could not have asked for a better location for our honeymoon! Steps from the beach! The resort supplies all the beach and pool towels, they have amazing poolside service and everything you’ll need. The unit itself is good. We were a bit disappointed that there wasn’t more of a lanai to sit on. It’s very narrow but still nice. From some of the photos it looks like there is a washer and dryer but there isn’t and unfortunately for us, the resort laundry facility was being remodeled while we were there. The beach chairs provided were full of sand and water not cleaned out by the last people to use them. We made sure they were clean for the next guests. Another disappointment was the small cooler that was provided. It had mold and was unusable so we had to buy our own. Overall this is a great unit and resort with good amenities and a location that is amazing. I would recommend it and possibly stay again although traffic in Lahaina is horrible so we might stay in Kihei next time. Barbara is fantastic to work! Thank you again for an unforgettable vacation!!!
