Comments from recent guests:
Stay of: June 2019 - Steps to the beach! I know Kaanapali Shores well and knew that 159 would be located at the end with good parking quiet location and steps to pool and beach. Beautifully decorated and well-appointed with every kitchen supply possible. Beach chairs and extra snorkel equipment and games made it homey. If you can find an opening grab this one!-Joni N. from Oregon

Perfect location! Walk-out from lanai to ocean/pool and great sunsets just steps away. Lots of beach/snorkeling gear provided. Family really enjoyed staying at this wonderful condo. Will definitely be coming back in the future!

This was our first time to Hawaii and this property met all of our needs. We enjoyed cooking in some nights and having restaurants so close when we didn’t want to cook. The ocean, pools and hot tubs are all so convenient from this location. This property made our first vacation to Hawaii an awesome one, our 9 and 7 year old loved it! We would definitely want to come back to this location.

The minute we walked through the lobby we knew we were in for a treat. Then we opened the door to the condo my mouth dropped! The view was breathtaking and all that I dreamed of for my 60th! We were worried about being on the ground floor but that wasn’t a problem at all; in fact it was perfect. Only steps to the pool, and a few more to the beach. Every sunset was awesome and we didn’t have to go somewhere else to get it. They even had a small band playing on our last night at Kaanapali Shores. We did a snorkel trip to Lanai to see the spinner dolphins, but we ended up seeing a turtle right there at the resort while snorkeling. So glad we found this place. It made great memories for us and our daughter and grandson. The two pools were warm, and loved the blue lighting at night. The fountains and bridge design on the 2nd pool was beautiful. The grounds were well kept, the flowers were awesome, and the koi ponds were a great touch. The condo had everything we needed and we did try to help by leaving some staple items behind like salt, pepper, mayo, mustard, ketchup, etc. Any issues we had, Chase n Rainbows was quick to return our call. The maintenance came to look at dishwasher and was very pleasant. Everyone was very friendly at the resort. We will be back again for our 35th Anniversay! Thank you for a wonderful vacation!

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: This condo has nothing in pantry or cupboards not even salt and pepper. This is the only condo we have ever rented with an empty pantry. Had a lot of beach toys, chair's and cooler. Had problems getting ceilings fan in bedroom to run. Chase’N Rainbows was fast to solve issues.

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: 50 years ago we were married in a Double Wedding Ceremony with my sister and her husband. Kaanapali Shores #159 was the perfect place for the 4 of us to celebrate our 50th Wedding Anniversary together.This beautifully decorated ground floor condo was just steps away from the beach, the pool and pool side Restaurant. The patio was a wonderful place to relax with a view of breaking waves and beautiful gardens all around.We feel this property was accurately represented with the exception of 2nd bedroom. We were disappointed in the lack of natural light and the small size of the 2nd bedroom. That being said, we would not hesitate to recommend #159.

We stayed here with our three kids ages 6-12. The location and convenience was fantastic and definitely the best feature of this property. It was great to be literally steps from both pool and beach so everyone could come and go easily throughout the day. We also enjoyed walking further down Kaanapali beach and to the shops and bakery’s nearby. The condo itself was serviceable but not particularly clean. The washing machine/dryer had lots of sand and lint, the fridge had a few dead ants, and the dishwasher had leftover food remnants and didn’t clean that well. We contacted management and they said they would notify the cleaning team going forward but didn’t do anything to remedy this during our stay.

This place was perfect for our family (6 adults). The view was amazing, rooms were perfect, plenty of room for everyone, and the amenities at the resort were great. Highly recommend!

This location is perfect! Steps to the beach, and steps to the pool. No hassle of an elevator, just walk right out from your lanai. We really enjoyed our stay- family of 5 with 3 teenage girls. You can walk to Black Rock, which is about a mile and a half sout- beautiful walk along the beach and other beautiful resorts. Tons of restaurants and shopping nearby, gorgeous beach. We saw tons of Whales and Sea Turtles during our stay. Visit Napili Beach, and highly reccoment Trilogy Excursion to Lanai.

I never got the email passcode poor lack of communication to check in frustrating since we paid so much $$$. Also when we got into our room all the dirty bedding from the guests before us was all over the dining room floor that we had to walk around for 2 days. I had to call 3 times to try and get somebody to pick up the dirty linen. I truly believe we deserve some sort of refund.

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We had a marvelous stay in the 2 bedroom condo. The location was perfect with close access to the beach and the pool area. The beach toys and chairs were ideal and encouraged us to venture out onto the reef. Management and services were wonderful and we were able to see them drain the pool to get ready for repairs.

Rating Details: The property manager was adequately helpful. The vacation rental was very clean. I was more than happy with the location. I was satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: The ocean view room was great. It had everything you would need for the kitchen, pool, and beach. It was very clean and within a very short walking distance to the beach. The garden pool was great and the kids loved it. A waiter from the onsite restaurant also walks around taking drink/food orders which is a bonus. Unfortunately, the second pool which is also right outside the room's patio, was under construction and was extremely noisy from 8am to 6pm. It was soo loud that you couldn't help but hear it while hanging out at the garden pool. Due to the construction, there were fences up all along the walkway near our room which required us to walk around the property in order to reach the lobby and the alternate pool. If you tried to enter the property from the parking lot there looked to be a path but when you walk down the plywood path you end up at a dead end. We chose the exact room we stayed in because of the view, the proximity to the pool and the beach but, we were not able to use that pool and the construction was an eyesore against the ocean view. In addition, someone from the property cleaning company knocked on our door one day before we were to check out and acted beyond surprised that I was there. The lady said she did not know anyone was there and that her manager sent her but she did not know why. She came back a few minutes later saying she called her manger and no longer needed to come inside and would come back. When I told her we were due to check out at 11am the next day, she also seemed very surprised. It was odd and I felt like they did not know we were staying there. Overall the room and property were nice but I wish we had picked a different place altogether.

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We loved our stay at Unit #159 at Kaanapali Shores!! The view & access to beach & pool is PERFECT! We loved how we could walk straight out to enjoy the beach/pool. Unit was clean & comfortable. We had 2 adult children with us & loved that they had their own bath & we had our own bedroom/bath suite. The pull out bed is not comfortable but then again none are. There were boogie boards, chairs, cooler, sand toys & umbrella in closet, which was great to have available. Take the time to eat at the food carts next door, they were delicious!!! We look forward to staying here again in the future.

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Patio view of the beach and 15 steps from the pool/poolbar and restaurant. This was mainly the adult pool with no issues of noise. Parking right outside of the front door of a first floor property. Minutes from Front Street and shopping. Well maintained and no complaints. Beach and pool stuff in the closet was a nice bonus. Great place that acts like a condo but feels like a hotel (minus the crowds of people.) We will be back!

We really enjoyed our stay. Only 2 things really that seemed off. The condo was not as clean as I was expecting, in general, but also because someone had tracked animal feces into the condo on their shoe. It was there when we got there so the cleaning crew? It smelled so bad when we first entered. Also, we tried running a load of laundry, and the washing machine broke down. It would not drain any water. We contacted maintenance multiple times over at least 3 days with no response. We had to wring and rinse the clothes ourselves in the bathtub in order to pack up and leave. Outside of those 2 things, the condo was comfortable, excellent location/accessibility, excellent view. L

This property was everything we wanted and more. Great location, great staff, and great apartment. We loved how it is so centrally located to where we wanted to go. Definitely going again. Look for sea turtles when you go here!

Overall this place was perfect. Ground floor with quick access to the pool and beach. Great living space with sliding glass doors to enjoy the outdoor patio. There is close parking to the unit which is helpful when unloading/uploading. The neighborhood is great as well with a grocery store, bar, restaurants and food trucks all within walking distance. I highly recommend staying here. The decor is your classic Hawaiian style and although it may be considered “outdated” I think it gives the condo its charm and makes you feel like you’re on a true island vacation. The unit comes with everything you need (beach chairs, snorkel gear, floaties, etc). The resort also provides you with beach/pool towels. Overall, we had a blast. My kids enjoyed their home for the week and we highly recommend staying here!

Very close to the pool, the beach food and a bar. Ocean sounds made for great sleep. Easy, friendly, and relaxing!
