This exceptional newly remodeled home offers the very best ocean views in this small community perched directly above Kaanapali Resort, surrounded by the Kaanpali Kai and Royal Golf courses.

Dine and barbecue on the Golf course lanai with exceptional Golf course and Ocean views; melt away in the poolside spa that overlooks Kaanapali and the Pacific Ocean, relax in the private outdoor "mini-spa" tub or stroll into Kaanapali for some beach-time or a bite to eat… Everything you are dreaming of is waiting for you here at The Summit Residence…

The Summit house was just what we needed for our family of ten. Ample room for all. Communication excellent for all our needs. The welcome basket was a special treat. Wish we could live together there forever! There is no way we could have been soo comfortable renting separate condos. Game room and weight rooms were used by all and appreciated.

If you’re looking for a home to rent while visiting Maui this home has everything you will want. It’s very beautiful and comfortable. If you’re looking to cook while on vacation, this kitchen has everything you will need and more. Our family consisted of ten adults and with the five bedrooms it was perfect. The pool area was breathtaking. Scott and Thomas was there if we needed anything and made check in very simple. Hopefully we can return to Maui and we will definitely rent this house again if available.

The property and home is beautiful as described. It’s in a wonderful and convenient location in a gorgeous neighborhood. What an experience!

The house was very nice in its layout & in a great location. It worked well with our 4 couples. First of all the company never responded to an email of basic questions regarding what supplies came with the house. The video that’s forwarded to you is from 2018 and shows a coin operated washer & dryer. The property manager didn’t meet us at the property like he said he would to go over everything. Pool & spa were both cloudy & hadn’t been serviced in a while. The house wasn’t very clean. In fairness seems common in Hawaii. No kitchen towels. (He brought some a few days later) The house hasn’t been maintained very well. There’s a stair railing that’s pulled from the wall at the top of the stairs amongst other things. We called Thomas the manager about the pool & it took 3 days before someone showed up.7 days later the pool was green with algae & cloudy again. We couldn’t get some of the bedroom Tv’s to work. The frig leaks. The bath off the gym doesn’t have a lock on the side door which opens to the backside of a golf course. Didn’t feel comfortable showering without a lock. The ice maker stopped working, Thomas came to look at it, he took the front cover off & left it with all the screws on the floor when he left. We gave him a list of things that need to be repaired at this home. One that’s a real issue if you like the ocean breezes is that there are several missing screens. We could not find a flyswatter at the house or anywhere nearby. If you stay here bring one with you.

The house had five bedrooms which accommodated my group very well. views of the ocean were great and a short walk to the beach. We ate in- all meals and the kitchen was large enough to handle all the chefs! Very nice vacation.

We absolutely LOVED our stay at the Summit Residence and are already planning when we can book it again. The house is absolutely stunning and so spacious. We loved having the pool and hot tub after a day at the beach, the kitchen has everything you need to make your own meals, and it's walking distance (or a 2 min drive) to the beach or the hotels nearby if you want a meal out. Thomas was such an excellent property manager and gave us some great recommendations like going to the local fish market to get fresh fish which we bbq'd at the house for tacos. I honestly have nothing negative to say and part of me wants to keep the house a secret so it's not booked up the next time we go back. Everything about our stay was absolutely perfect and we can't wait to visit again!

We had a wonderful stay in this home. The home is very well appointed but the best was the kindness and attentiveness we received from Thomas who answered all questions. The kids loved the pool and were worn out every day. Rent this house!!!

My 50th birthday gift to myself was to share one of mine and my husband’s favorites places with our parents, our children, and grandchildren. So it was our treat to bring them to Maui!! Due to the devastation on the island, our planned vacation was iffy as the resort we were staying at was cancelling reservations during our travel dates. Needless to say, I was losing hope and nearly cancelled our trip. One week before our travel date, I miraculously stumbled upon Summit Residence after weeks of searching for a place that would accommodate our family of 10 adults and infants. If this doesn’t make you believe in miracles and a reminder that what’s meant to be will always be, Summit Residence did!! Instead of splitting our family up into two villas, we were now all under one roof!! And what a treat it was! The house was absolutely perfect for our family. We loved spending time in the pool together, enjoying the hot tub while we watched the sunset, grilling on the lanai, and all the extras like the pack n’ plays, beach chairs, a fully equipped kitchen, and the fun game room! I learned how to play pool, and my 81 y/o father kicked all of our butts - talk about a pool shark! This home turned my frown upside down! I didn’t miss having to run down early in the morning to put our towels out on the lounge chairs! Steve and Thomas took excellent care of us. They only had one rule - “Have a great time!” Turned out to be the best family vacation I could’ve ever imagined!!

The Summit is an amazing property with every detail well thought out from the artwork, furnishings, beach gear and stocked bathrooms to the wonderful welcome basket! Thomas couldn’t have made the check in and check out process any easier. The location can’t be beat with a short walk to the Whalers Village. It has the best stocked kitchen with any kitchen utensil a cook could possibly need. The soaking tub was phenomenal and all 5 couples in our party thoroughly enjoyed the pool and outdoor patio. When we come back to Maui, we will stay here again!

This is one of the best properties we have experienced. Everything was beautiful and there were happy surprises beyond the listing. Communication with the owner and property manager were stellar. We will be back!

This house was everything we wished for. Beautiful home on the Kaanapali golf course. The pool and hot tub were in use constantly by our group. House was well stocked and also had beach stuff including surf boards, boogie boards, chairs and sand toys. If we needed anything or had concerns we got very quick response. We want to come back!

We rented this beautiful home for a family trip for 8 adults and 2 small children. The management company was very responsive to inquiries prior to arrival and although we arrived very late in the evening, the check in process was smooth and the instructions for getting in and situated were very clear. The house was absolutely perfect for our group and we loved spending time on the lanai and at the pool. Great location near Kaanapali beach and Whalers village, which was easily walkable from the house. We particularly appreciated the availability of a pack and play, wagon and some beach toys for the kids. We look forward to the opportunity to return in the future!

We had a great time staying at the Kaanapali Summit Residence! The house was spacious and relaxing, with a wonderful pool deck, game area, fully equipped kitchen, and decor true to the Maui vibe. The proximity to Kaanapali Beach and the nearby hotels, restaurants, and shopping was perfect! The hosts and rental group were also especially accommodating and communicative. We had a great time and would absolutely stay again!

Beautiful property. Good location. Check in and check out process seamless. After signing the contract, asking questions via email was a little slow. Better to call directly. Could use better explanations for all the various TV/sound systems.

Views were spectacular! Pool and hot tub were clean and used everyday. Beach and pool toys galore. Clean house and many amenities. Any issues we had, we had prompt responses/fixes. Close to the beach and all the restaurants. Would come again!!

Overall we very much enjoyed our stay, and would definitely stay here again if/when we return. The location was simply phenomenal! The environment the home gives off is very luxurious and yet relaxing at the same time. There were some minor annoyances, but those were not deal breakers for us, as I said we would for sure stay here again! Minor annoyances; The Keurig was sitting on the kitchen counter broken, without any note stating such. Was told a new one would be brought over which never happened. The door to the "Blue" room(the one without it's own bathroom), was not a very private door, and any activity in the kitchen can clearly be heard. It's a really nice room, but due to it's location, it would be nice to have a more private door. The listing is a little deceiving in regards to this bedroom setup and location. We were there for 9 nights, so there were some opportunities for TV time, but setting up the TV's was a bit of a challenge with no instructions found to I said, these are not deal-breakers in my opinion, just a little annoying is all! This was a family gathering, and as such we had some unfortunate drama, but the staff was very understanding, and for that I am very grateful. Besides this our Maui adventure would not have been as awesome as it was anywhere else. The Summit Residence was definitely worth the investment!!

We absolutely loved staying here! The house is gorgeous, well taken care of and stocked with the basics and more. The location is convenient and the host was so welcoming and helpful. There are multiple master suites and it’s a great property for both adults and kids. We’ll be back for sure! :)

My husband and I rented this house with 4 other couples. Our ages were 53-81, all very young at heart. The house is nice but we don’t feel the website represents it as it is today. In looking at the website to us it appears as if the house is a lot newer then it truly is. Although there are some very nice Hawaiian art and decor the house needs some tender loving care in some respects. The large ice maker was broken, the A/C did not work in one of the bedrooms, the sliding glass doors when shut often would lock thus leaving someone locked outside of the house. They need to be adjusted. The exercise equipment was not the best and an old Kuerig coffee maker broke half way through our trip. Our biggest disappointment was we thought each couple would have their own full bathroom. That was not the case. We found out after we arrived that one of the bedrooms was supposed to use the bathroom outside by the pool area. In the middle of the night asking a senior citizen to walk through a dark house and outside to the pool area to use the bathroom is not a luxury vacation home. Therefore, 2 couples ended up having to share a bathroom. It is advertised that it is in walking distance to shops, restaurants etc, Whalers Village, and yes it is just about a 20 minute walk but the first 2 blocks are very very steep. Half of our group who are very active could make this walk but the other half with bad knees could not handle the steepness coming and going every day, therefore had to drive. Upon arrival the house was somewhat cleaned, but not pristine, especially the kitchen floor. We had asked for the sofa bed to be made up and it was not. Since we arrived around 8pm we could not get ahold of the management company, so we had to compromise our first night and take off a top sheet to one of the other beds being used just so the sofa bed had one sheet. This left one of the king beds with no top sheet. For the positives of this house the management company was very responsive. When I was able to reach them the next day they came over and gave us the sheets we needed. The house was equipped with TP, paper towels, dish washing soap, laundry detergent, trash bags, shampoo, soaps etc all the essentials. A lot of VRBO homes you have to buy all of that. The best part of the house was the pool. It is a nice size pool and the stone turtles in it make it very decorative. We immensely enjoyed the pool area daily!!

The Summit Residence is everything we hoped it would be and more. Clean, beautiful and spacious with tons of amenities—not the least of which is the gorgeous heated pool. It was so relaxing to wake up everyday and go for a long swim. Maui is beautiful with plenty to do and having a fantastic house to return to made each day something special.

This house was amazing and perfect for a large group. We had 7 adults and 2 children, ages 6 & 2. It was all we could have asked for and more. After grocery shopping, we really had no reason to leave as we had our own oasis. On the way to the house we received a call the AC in the bottom level was not working. They had already had fans running to keep it cool. They purchased two portable AC's and had them installed right away. We used the pool every day. The property manager and owner were very accessible. They wanted to make sure we had everything we needed and enjoyed our stay. I would recommend this house to anyone looking for a place to house a large number of people. It was perfect in every way!!

Our group of eight, all adult family members, got of to a rough start with no one there to give us an orientation- property mgr. had COVID symptoms. Had a few issues with Wi-Fi and a/c, but Steve, the owner, was very responsive. The home is in a great location and has all the amenities you could want. The kitchen has every tool you would expect to need and the two fridges and commercial ice maker were used extensively. The poolside full bath is not really usable from inside the house, but the remaining 4 1/2 baths were adequate for our 3 couples and two adult siblings. Future guests will not be disappointed. This is a very nice lodging for larger groups that offers many on-site and nearby activities to please everyone in the group. Enjoy…

Trip of a lifetime with 10 family members. The property was beautiful with the layout being perfect with so much family. Close to beach with beautiful pool. Stocked with everything you needed and quick response with any questions or help from staff.

The best way to summarize our stay at the Summit Residence was Fantastic! Everything was as listed in the online information. The home is beautiful, excellent location just north of downtown Lahaina and away from the hustle and bustle of the area and only a 10min walk to the beach. Our family enjoyed many evenings sitting by the pool and watching the sunsets. The house has everything you could possibly want and more. We had nine people in our party and the house is large enough that all of us had plenty of room. Absolutely our best experience renting a house yet. You should have no hesitation about renting this location.

Nice house with lots of common area space. Ohana bedroom with no dedicated shower was an issue as someone had to share. Needed a few more lounge chairs and umbrellas. But overall, had a nice time, location was great and the management was responsive.

We sincerely enjoyed our stay. Great layout for a large group including 8 adults (4 couples). Walking distance to Whalers Village, beach, or an easy quick drive. Close to Lahaina as well for dinners and shops. Quiet street and lots of privacy. Could not have asked for a better stay!

We had a fantastic family trip! Everything about our experience with this property was just what we were looking for. Our children are in their 20’s so it was perfect they all had their own space as well as areas for the whole family to be together. The location is perfect and was conveniently near everything we needed. The homeowner and management team were responsive and easy to work with! We would definitely recommend!

Beautiful house that accommodated all 9 of us with ease! Thomas was the best!! He was always a phone call away if needed. Perfect location for shopping, beaches and restaurants. Beautiful food basket and bouquet of flowers from the owners upon arrival. Would definitely come back. Aloha and mahalo!

We had an awesome time at this house. It is probably the most well stocked home we have ever stayed in. We enjoyed every part of this home inside and out. The neighborhood, walking the golf course and the beaches. We didn't want to leave.

Eight family members (two generations) from 4 different states gathered to have a wonderful week together. This property is amazing. The kitchen is very well stocked and would be wonderful to cook in if we had chosen to! Very comfortable beds! Plenty of space to gather together or to be off on your own. Can't say enough about the pool that was all ours. We had a hard time ever leaving the house!! We were even able to see whales in the distance from the lanai! Wished we would have packed binoculars. It's about a 10-15 minute walk to Kaanapali beach and Whaler's village. The return walk is a bit steep but the 60+ folks in the group managed nicely. So pleased to have beach chairs, boogy boards, surf boards, and a cooler for our use. The property is right on the golf course and the mowing crew started at 5:30 am each morning - at least we were up for sunrise!! Landscaping was superb. We had no need to contact the manager, but he was very personable when he stopped by and I'm sure he would be very responsive. The welcome gift basket and the fresh floral arrangements were a very nice touch! We could have stayed here forever. Hoping to return some day!

My friends and I had a great time staying at the Summit Residence! The whole process went very smoothly and we were able to enjoy the beautiful home to relax and make memories. Communication was very easy and open with the property manager and we felt so welcomed. They provided some great recommendations of places to check out during our visit. It was fantastic to have lots of common areas where we could gather but also space where we could spread out. We loved having access to the surfboards, beach chairs, umbrella, and cooler. Knowing we could borrow those things was so convenient and really made our vacation even more fun and stress free! It was amazing to know that even when we weren’t out exploring the island, we had a great place to come back to and cook a meal together, hang out by the pool, or play games. We hope to go back some day! Thanks!

We had a great time. The house is located a nice walk to Kaanapali Beach which we did multiple times per day. We loved having a pool to ourselves and all of the privacy that this home offered, while also being an easy walk away from restaurants and the beach. The only downside of this place, which we think we’re more than offset it by the many upsides, was the early morning noise from the golf course lawnmowers, which start well before dawn every day.

Property well appointed. Convenient to beaches and shopping in Kaanapali. Manager very responsive and kind. Pool nice. In-house gym a nice surprise. Manager incredibly generous with beach toys and gear from boards to chairs. We had a few minor hiccups with pool and internet but the management fixed within 30 minutes. Nothing big or their fault but they were on it as fast as we called them. They left us some very nice gifts to welcome us to their property. Property not new but still very nice in a classic way. Nice floor plan for our five adult children with spouses and a few babies. Not too many family options like this on Maui. Sincerely grateful to management who tried to make our stay as enjoyable as possible.

This house is truly amazing. The pool is beautiful, hot tub, work out room.....we did not want to leave. It was immaculate and decorated in a cool Hawaiian vibe. My husband and I and our 3 daughters (late teens/20's) had a blast. The house is huge and definitely could have fit another family. This was our first time in Hawaii and we were unsure which area to stay in. We loved the pictures of the house but didn't know much about the location. It turns out the neighborhood is a few streets away from the shops, restaurants, hotels and beaches. We could walk into town, but we were also able to enjoy the feel of being in a house in a neighborhood. The property manager was waiting for us when we arrived and he even let in a grocery delivery service that we used so we would walk into a stocked refrigerator. He gave me his cell number to text him for any recommendations for restaurants, beaches, sites to see. There are surfboards, beach chairs and everything you could possibly need. I highly recommend staying in this little piece of heaven.

After traveling all the way to Maui, we felt comfortable just hanging at the house, using the pool, the spa, and eating together. The home exemplified the islands.

This was our 3rd time using VRBO and this was by far the best experience! The house is just perfect, the location is great, and the owner and property manager were friendly and kind and asked if there was anything we needed!! We were there for my daughter’s wedding and it couldn’t have gone better!! I can’t say enough nice things about this house!! Thank you for everything!!

Beautiful house, great location.A five minute drive to the beach a 10 minute drive to downtown in Lahaina. Situated on a hill overlooking the ocean, beautiful views. The house was perfect fit for us, As they were five bedrooms and five of us. There were a few issues with the house, that management did respond to. Air condition throughout the house and all the rooms are very spacious. The front lanai and the pool were definitely the highlights of the house. And beautiful landscaping throughout.

We rented and house and a condo with Maui Life. Rent a home with a pool. Totally worth it. Amazing Service and beautiful homes. Great communication and clean homes. We will use them again if we go back.

Our stay was very good. Plenty of room for us all and fun at every turn. The refrigerator in the kitchen needs something done with the door, my 8 year old grandson couldn’t even open it because it stuck so bad. There were issues with the air conditioner. Fortunately there were fans in all the rooms that ‘helped. The temperature would climb over the course of the day and stay at about 79/80 all evening into the night. Fortunately the game room down stairs was cool. We ultimately enjoyed out vacation and made lots of wonderful memories.

This house and host offers everything you could possibly need for an amazing Maui vacation. Highly recommended, we will be back! Thank you!

The first we noticed right away was the view from the patio, which completely mesmerizing at sunset - with the sun going down over the ocean. The house was perfect for 10 of us, 4 adults and children ranging from 2 to 6. There was space to get together and play and ample space to retreat to your own room when needed. The pool was heated and we enjoyed swimming around most afternoons before dinner. The location can't be beat - 10-20 minute walk to Ka'anapali depending on where you are going. 10 minute drive to Lahaina. The hosts were on site to help us get settled and were in touch several times throughout our stay. Highly recommend!

This well appointed home was a fabulous place for our family vacation. The home is warm and welcoming. The location is close to shops, restaurants and the beach. The owner, Steve and the house rep Thomas were there for all our needs. The front yard pool deck was our favorite family spot. I’d definitely stay here again😎.

We went to Maui to celebrate the retirement of a family member and stayed at the amazing Summit Residence at Kaanapali Vista. We were there 12 days/11 nights and it was heavenly. Not only is the property fabulous, but everyone we dealt with was helpful and super nice. Barry, from MauiLife Realty communicated with us prior to our stay and Thomas took care of any issues during our stay (we didn’t really have any issues, but he made sure everything was going well for us). The owner, Steve sent us a nice welcoming email and they even left us a wonderful gift basket with all kinds of treats in it. They really just go the extra mile to make sure you feel welcome. As for the property, what can I say but “Wow”!! The entire family was so impressed. It’s just a really cool place to be. The pool and outdoor areas are heavenly (views of the ocean, Lanai and Molokai) and there is literally something for everyone. The property is right on the golf course and is a short walk or drive to the beach. There’s workout equipment, boogie and surfboards, pool table, foosball, great sound system, multiple decks, TVs and bars everywhere and beautiful bedrooms. My husband and I had the honor of staying in the Master (Serenity) Suite which was huge. The shower was amazing and right outside the shower was a very private, walled in outdoor spa/meditation area. Very zen. The kitchen and living areas are lovely and comfortable and there are beautiful and unique things everywhere you look. This is a very special place and you can tell that is was furnished with care and love of island life. Staying here was a real treat for our family and we hated to leave. Thank you, Steve, Barry and Thomas!!

We booked this house for 2 families (all adults) and there was plenty of room to be all together or apart as needed. The house is beautiful and is well stocked in the kitchen, bathrooms, bathrooms and pool area. The location was perfect for us, a very quick walk to the beach and Whalers Village in a quiet neighborhood. The owner and management team were top notch and I will definitely use them again on my next visit to Maui.

Beautiful property, owners and property manager responsive and very friendly. The house was beyond our expectations and well equipped for anyone planning to stay there. The kitchen was fully stocked with cooking supplies, chairs for the beach, towels for the beach, spacious bathrooms, and even detergent for washing clothing. A lot of thought went into making sure that the stay was a good experience. It felt like being at home away from home. I highly recommend this property if you're considering staying in Maui near Old Lahaina and you want one less thing to worry about. You won' t be disappointed!

We visited with 3 other couples and had a fabulous time! There was plenty of room for everyone since the bedrooms were all spaced out well. If you like to wake up with the sun, pick the Blue Room. If you prefer to sleep in and not want any noise, choose the downstairs room since it is darker and quiet. I stayed in the Ka'anapali Vista room because I wanted to sit on my private lanai and sip coffee while looking at the ocean - PERFECT spot! The couple who chose Serenity used the soaking tub often and raved about it! The kitchen was well appointed and we cooked some gourmet meals (filet minion, fish tacos, kalbi ribs) but we were also close enough to walk down to the fantastic restaurants on Ka'anapali beach. We spent a lot of time by the pool and almost every evening in the hot tub. The early risers in our group worked out poolside every morning. Our guys had a lot of fun playing pool in the man-cave downstairs and all of us actually had a TON of fun singing karaoke! We didn't really use the DVD's, we just connected to the amazing sound system and used the microphones to sing along. It was great to be by the golf course and watch folks on that hole. The neighbors (and their lovely dogs) were super nice. We did run into a maintenance problem, but it was quickly attended to. Overall, our whole group highly recommends the Summit Residence! We hope to be back soon!

We absolutely loved our stay at the Summit Residence at Kaanapali Vista. We have 5 couples celebrating a 45th and a 50th birthday. It was the first time I've stayed on Maui that I have not been in a condo on the beach. We were not disappointed. I don't know if I could go back. The personal space, pool, extras in the home made this feel like we were at home - yet on vacation! This place could not be set up better form the stocked kitchen supplies, to everything you need for the beach, location is perfect - and many times our group walked down to Black Rock - less than a mile! It was another great stay on Maui!

We were a family of 8. There were 2 parents, 2 grandparents and 4 children aged 6, 11, 13 & 14yrs. There was more than enough room for everyone. Everything was immaculate. The property is well kept & has everything you need. Tom the manager was helpful, friendly & welcoming. The location is a perfect drive to beaches & sightseeing. The pool & downstairs entertainment area has everything and more.. We hardly left the house, just so we could enjoy it all. Highly recommend to all travellers.

Our incredible stay started with thoughtful welcome gifts and exploring this beautiful residence, which was decorated exquisitely and updated with many modern touches. Every part of our trip was memorable, but the residence was our safe haven and made our trip come alive, allowing my family to experience so many special moments together. The residence is in the perfect location - in the heart of Maui, literally walking distance to the beach (Kaanapali resort). We'd have breakfast, jump into the stunning pool, grab the house's boogie boards and beach gear and head to the beach — 3 min away. We'd change, go for lunch at one of Whaler’s Village's many amazing restaurants, walk the boardwalk, people watch... it's all right there. The home is located in the center of every activity we wanted to do. At one point, two family members were out playing golf and called us from the sixth hole -- open the kitchen sliders, they said. We walked out onto the deck, and there they were, right on the tee! What a treat, to see the ocean view from one side of the home, and the gorgeous manicured lawns of a golf course from the other side. The residence was even more luxurious and well appointed than we were expecting. Any problem or concern that arose was addressed immediately by the very capable and kind owner, realtors and property manager. More importantly, the residence enabled the nine members of our family traveling from both coasts to vacation comfortably under one roof. We listened to the powerful Sonos sound system in every room. We laughed, sang karaoke, played pool, foosball and video games, dipped in the pool and relaxed in the hot tub. We celebrated a birthday and a 50th anniversary with the most important people in the world. We experienced the joy of family reunited in Paradise. We didn’t want a large party in a catering hall, nor did we want a cruise or a trip to Paris. We wanted our loved ones together, and we couldn't imagine having done it in a more incredible home.

We have stayed in 90-100 vacation rental homes over the past 20 years. Summit is, by far, the very best. And not just because of the location and awesome features; all of which it has. Where it goes beyond is the personal touches and the details. There were board games, there was beach equipment. There were more than enough toilet paper rolls, paper towels, dishwashing detergent, spices in the cabinets, laundry detergent, jumbo sized bottles of shampoo/conditioner/body wash (I cannot tell you how many times I have had to go out to the store for these basics *multiple times* in the past at other rentals, which is super annoying.) Plus: comfy beds, high end pool furniture, even makeup wipes in the bathroom. He has literally thought of everything!! Order your groceries ahead of time & you’re good to go. Basically just show up with your swimsuit. There was plenty of space for our family of 10 plus 2 babysitters. None of us ever felt remotely cramped or on top of each other. There were 2 fridges and an ice maker (hello! We have one at home too and have never seen one before in a rental...and just think of how much ice a family of 10 uses in Maui!) We were just spoiled rotten!! And: There was a problem with the AC when we arrived, which is no one’s fault- and if you’re familiar with how things work on the islands, you can’t get things fixed overnight, but here’s where our experience went from wonderful to amazing: the caretaker showed up immediately before we even arrived with ample fans for all over the house; and then the owner of the house showed up and PERSONALLY fixed the air conditioning for us the next day...simply because our comfort was important to him, we didn’t have to wait days on end. He also gave us a price break for the inconvenience. AND came over to blow up inflatable pool toys for our kids. Who does all that?!? Seriously, we have never ever had this kind of experience with a rental property before. Steven is a customer service expert, as far as we’re concerned. The personal touch makes ALL the difference!!! We felt so cared for. The entire vibe of the place is to just enjoy yourself and relax...abundantly and continuously. The meditation area off the master bathroom is nothing less than stunningly beautiful and serene. I actually feel as if referring to Steven’s place as a “rental” does it a disservice- it feels as if you’re staying in your good friend’s home. We will be back for sure, no question. Mahalo Steven!!!

Stayed here for New Years week. House is very spacious and well layout out. Located on the golf course so you see golfers playing threw but only from the back side porch area. Management company contacted us a number of times to ask if we needed anything and if all was ok-- who does that anymore? You will not be disappointed if you are looking for a nice property a short distance to the beach and town.

We loved staying at this property. The house is lovely and spacious. We enjoyed the pool and hot tub and work out equipment. There was lots of space for our family of 8. We walked to Kaanapali Beach and found the location fantastic. We cooked many meals and enjoyed many special moments sitting outdoors looking at the view. The owner and manager were very attentive and great to meet. A wonderful week in paradise at a special home. Maui No KA Oi. Maui is the best!

This home was perfect for our large multigenerational family. It provided the space and amenities for everyone's needs. The owner’s were extreme melt attentive but stayed out of our hair. The kitchen is well stocked. The nicest touch was a small Christmas tree and some Christmas decorations they put out for us. We will be coming back for sure!

November 2018
I can not say enough great things about this house and our stay. Steve, Barry, and Thomas were more than helpful with anything we asked. The house is great for families with any age kids or just adults. From the downstairs game room with 2 big TVs, an Xbox, pool and foosball table to the pool, hot tub, and weight room. is secluded enough but minutes from grocery stores and Whalers Village for shopping or eating. And if you love to golf you are right on the golf course. Thank you again to Steve, Barry, and Thomas for all of your help before and during our trip.

Our three-generation group had a fabulous time at Summit Residence. Everything the other reviews say is true -- stunning views; exceptional convenience to shops, beaches, and restaurants; complete privacy; and meticulous maintenance. We have rented a number of luxury properties, and this one surpasses them all with its amazing art works and antiques, the Sonos music system, and the thoughtful little touches that Steven provided (toiletries and laundry soap and spices! Yay!). I can't say enough good things about this fantastic property and the level of service that Honua Kai offers.

Our mouths were open as we got our initial tour of the premises. So spacious and well appointed. All bedrooms were spaced out for privacy. Plenty of places to gather.....pool area, back deck, downstairs game room, living room, large kitchen area. The back of the house backs up to a golf course (pit stop while playing a round!) and the front offers views of the ocean beyond the hotels of Ka’anapali. Very close to lovely restaurants in whalers village. Workout room was a great offering for those who wanted to control vacation eating and drinking. Many items were included to make our beach trips more enjoyable....coolers, chairs, towels, boogie boards, etc. The management team was awesome......friendly, helpful, available. Highly recommend!

A wonderful week with three generation family vacation. The Summit Home is everything and more from the pictures and reviews. We took advantage of it all, working out with exercise equipment, billiard pool competition, golf, beach walking. swimming, snorkeling, hiking grilling out and just hanging out around the pool. Steven and Barry were most helpful and gave us great recommendations on restaurants, beaches, snorkeling and hiking. The time just pasted too quickly.

Where to start... The views, the location, the amenities (that master bath!), the home itself, everything about this place was wonderful! Every morning we had coffee on the back patio overlooking the golf course, and each evening we watched the sunset from the patio overlooking the pool, and ocean. There are multiple beaches and grocery stores nearby and the home was equipped with everything you need to cook a fabulous meal or pack a beach picnic, down to (very nice) beach bags. We had 3 couples, and two singles (8 people total) and the accommodations worked perfectly with 4 bedrooms with king beds and a pullout sofa bed. Steven and Barry were super friendly and checked in a couple times to make sure we had everything we needed. A+++ all around, next time we're back in Maui, we will 100% be staying here again! Aloha 🌺

We are seven people who vacation together every year. This place was by far the most beautiful, comfortable and accommodating. Steven, Barry and Kyle were available to us everyday (not that we needed their help every day ;) ) and helped our stay to be the best ever! All the amenities were extremely useful. The house is perfect with new renovations that are out of this world!! Thank you and we look forward to booking this paradise again!!! Mahalo! Suzi, Steve, Rick, Ted, Eileen, Curtis & Brandon

We all - ages 20 - 95 - loved your place. It had all the spaces that were perfect for our group of 7. Everything was exactly as pictured, worked fine and was very clean when we arrived. We had a small problem after we arrived that was very quickly resolved. I discovered that having two lanais was a nice touch to be out and enjoy the shade whenever we wanted. We already want to go back!

The pictures don’t do this place justice! We came here on a family retreat and didn’t want to leave. Each room in the house is spacious, clean with great views. If we could, we’d stay at the pool the entire time with the comfortable lawn chairs, hammock, and lounge areas. The place is also very close to the beach, nice restaurants and of course golfing. Steve was also very very responsive to any inquiry we had and was a joy to meet. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend the place! Mahalo!

We had an amazing visit to Maui and one of the highlights of the trip was this property. The river-rock bath tub, panoramic views, personal gym, hot tub, pool with swimming turtles (well they at least look real), pool table, foosball table and more large TVs than we could count and beach music throughout the home via Sonos. With 2 children under 6 we had some early nights and the house was a great place to enjoy the beauty of Maui from. It backs up to a par 3 which provided lots of entertainment while cooking in the gourmet kitchen. Having a personal pool was huge as our kiddos aren’t quite ready for the ocean. Instead we spent most mornings down at the beach in front of whalers village (after an Açaí bowl and coffe from Island Vintage) and the rest of the afternoon at the pool where our kids could enjoy the water more freely. Steve and Kyle were great and when we ran out of propane they had it replaced inside an hour! I cannot say enough about these people and their property and we will most definitely be back. Mahalo!

This house met all expectations. It was as lovely as described and perhaps even more so in reality. The original artwork is beautiful and the pool stunning. It is the best equipped VRBO house I have stayed in. With 3 "chefs" in the family that's saying something. Everything you could possibly need was provided even down to yoga mats! Steve was great to communicate with. We would stay there again in a heartbeat.

Where do I begin! The property is exactly as pictured and is even more beautiful in person. We stayed at the property with an extended family of 10 and fit more than comfortably. Steve met us upon our arrival and gave us a thorough tour and details of all the amenities of the house. He was also available throughout our trip in case we needed any help. There was a sound system that played music throughout the house that we used during our entire stay, this was the cherry on top for our group. The location of the house is directly across one thoroughfare to the surrounding resorts and beaches (primary location). There was not one area in the house that was not used by our group. The workout room was used daily as well as the game room downstairs. We enjoyed competitive games of pool and countless matches of the newest video games on the Xbox live console. The television downstairs was also awesome for movie night. Our group cooked breakfast and dinner each day in the kitchen that was fully stocked with all of the supplies we needed (a Safeway grocery store was about 2mi from the property as well). The most popular area for our group was the pool and jacuzzi of course! We definitely plan on coming back to Maui just to stay at this property for future family vacations, we did not want to leave! Thanks Steve for an unforgettable vacation experience! Oh! And I can not forget to mention the outdoor stone bath, what a treat.

This home MADE our vacation an incredible one. The home was beautiful, the amenities were wonderful and the service exceeded all expectations! We felt like royalty. We have done a lot of travelling and this has been by one of the best accomodations we have had the pleasure of enjoying. The home has recently been renovated and you can recognize that a lot of thought and experience went into the upgrades. The property locations is perfect- walking distance to the beach, golf, shopping and restaurants. The rooms were each beautifully decorated and incredibly comfortable. The bathrooms were like something out of a magazine. Steven was very easily accessible and responded very promptly to any concerns or questions. Upon Steven’s recommendation we booked private chef Rob Mason in for an in-home gourmet dinner- one of the best meals we have had! In all of our travels we have never returned to the same accommodation given that there is so much to choose from and experience, but I can say with certainty that we will definitely be rebooking this home for a repeat visit. THANK YOU!
