This is the Ultimate direct beachfront rental residence at over 1,500 sq.ft. of interior living area, and you know exactly which property you are renting rather than going through the front desk. The home also features a wrap-around deck that provides an additional 498 sq.ft. of effective outdoor living area with plenty of chairs and chaises to enjoy the stunning views. This property was just recently sold in late 2021 and has been expertly decorated by a professional design team that exudes carefree textures, colors, and patterns.

Immediately upon walking in the front entry, you get the WOW factor of the massive ocean view that spans the entire islands of Lanai and Molokai, making it perfect for year-round to die for sunsets and spectacular whale watching in the winter. This open concept features ocean views from the kitchen/living area, and the master bedroom with its own entry out to the covered lanai. This residence is very comfortable and well equipped as a home away from home and will sleep a party of six, with the couch being a pull-out sleeper sofa.

Directly fronting Kaanapali Shores lives a seasonal golden sand beach and one that is year-round just 50 steps away to the North. This resort radiates fun and excitement with two pool areas located in the center courtyard, its direct beachfront location, and the onsite Beach Club Restaurant, complex gym, and spa. Located on the border of Kaanapali and Honokowai, makes it a short walking distance to Times Supermarket, excellent local food trucks and restaurants, and a close to drive to golf in either Kaanapali or Kapalua.

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Our beachfront condo was all anyone could ask for a perfect trip to Kaanapali, Maui. Plenty of room for the four of us and the most incredible lanai. Saw lots of whales and turtles. We were mesmerized by the crashing of the waves. The condo was pristine and had everything we needed.

The Stice Team did a great job of making certain that we had everything that we needed from the time that we arrived until the time that we departed. You cannot beat the location. We did 2 whale watching excursions while in Maui, but actually saw much more whale activity from our balcony. We are already discussing a return visit, and will make certain that we stay at the resort.

WOW!!! Just WOW!!! It's difficult to know exactly what a place you are renting online is going to look like. The pictures are accurate, but do not do this condo justice. The communication and checkin process were all great. But when we walked into the condo we were extremely impressed! The views of the ocean from each room were amazing. The balcony gives you 180 degree views, and it is the closest room on the floor to the beach/water. You feel like you are on the water. The kitchen, bedrooms, and bathrooms were all very nice. Great location. I can't think of anything negative. We had a great time and highly recommend this place to anyone!

The place is beautiful with an amazing view from living space and both bedrooms. Had everything you need to enjoy your stay. Very clean and open space. We would definitely book here again. It was very welcoming with a nice welcome basket for our family. Enjoyed family time here very much!

The condo was very clean and had everything you could possibly need. The view was wonderful. We sat outside on the lanai each morning for coffee and each evening for wine. The beach directly in front of the complex is small but we did swim in the ocean a couple of times. The pool is small but nice for cooling off with a drink from the bar. We would definitely stay here again.

Visited Maui with my husband and mother in law. We each had great views! The resort is on a decent stretch of beach and close enough to walk to some restaurants like Duke’s. Enjoyed everything about this place, really appreciated all the kitchen and beach amenities. Very comfortable and couldn’t ask for a better lanai!

I booked your place for a father/daughter trip to Hawaii with her friends. The place was amazing. I could watch them hang in the beach while I made dinner. The kitchen is stocked to make just about anything. The place is large and comfy. The lanai is amazing!!!!

We couldn’t have been happier with the location, the condo itself and the overall experience. The views from the wrap-around terrace certainly didn’t hurt either!

This was a great place to stay with a beautiful view! The room was very spacious & we even had a little welcome basket with some treats. The resort staff was very friendly too. The only downside was the beach area in front of the resort was a little small, but you could easily visit other beaches in the area. Overall, this was a great condo with a great view (especially for sunsets)!

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: The condo is exactly as described in the pictures and videos. I have to say that the mattresses were so comfortable I asked the rental company for the brand so we could buy them for our home. The beachfront location is absolutely perfect. We went snorkeling right outside our balcony and saw so many fish and even sea turtles. Kaanapali Shores had so much to do for my family and children; from the pool, spa, corn hole, pickleball, tennis courts, beach rentals, restaurant, and even a food/souvenir market in the building. We had a minor issue in the condo and Hawaii Life was quick to respond and so helpful. I would absolutely rent with them again with zero hesitation.

This was our first time in Maui as we were celebrating our 35th anniversary. This condo was clean and comfortable and had everything we needed. The kitchen is well stocked and everything worked perfectly. The beds were comfortable and there were plenty of towels and pillows. The wrap around balcony was amazing to sit out and watch the waves and have some quiet time and coffee. You could hear the ocean clearly from the fifth floor. The property managers were easy to work with and answered questions quickly. We use the provided beach chairs and beach towels, which was super convenient. The complex is nice. The staff is friendly. We always found parking easily in the lot. Everything is so close. 15 minutes to the best snorkeling, 15 minutes to the best boogie boarding, 15 minutes to Lahaina… Maui is awesome and this is a great property. And one last time, you can’t beat the views! They are even better than the picture show!!

Amazing views of the ocean and wildlife! Was the perfect landing spot for our family of 5. Updates were nice and the beds comfortable. Complex has friendly staff. BBQs are quite a ways from the condo, but the wagon made it manageable. Management was responsive to our needs if an issue arose. Would absolutely visit this condo again!

If your looking for a phenomenal view this is the place to stay. The whale watching was amazing. We say whales breach every day from our balcony. Magnificent turtles surfing the waves. The parking was easy. Attendants friendly. The food at the on-site restaurant was excellent. There is a food truck park right next door. A jazz restaurant across the street w good breakfast as well. Slappy cakes is also awesome and across the street as well as a wonderful grocery store called “The times”. Can’t say enough good about this condo, the view and the location.

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: This property has an unbeatable view (seriously, unbeatable) and the property management is exceptionally responsive and thoughtful. There are numerous personal touches throughout the unit (i.e. binoculars so that you can get a good view of the whale show right out front) and think of pretty much everything you would need for a comfortable stay. The building itself is old, and some things are kind of unavoidable (old plumbing, lower water pressure, etc.) but overall I would recommend this place for future guests.

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: There are no words to describe the condo. It was absolutely perfect in every ways. The beds were comfortable, the location was perfect, the views of the ocean are unreal. My family consisted of myself, my husband and two young boys (7 and 9 years old) along with my parents. My parents stayed in hawaii several times and said that they have never stayed anyplace remotely as nice as this condo. Both of my boys insisted that this was the best vacation ever. The hosts were amazing from the moment we made reservations through checkout. I inquired about ordering air mattress to be delivered since my boys did not like sharing beds and without hesitation the host ordered the air mattress at no additional cost and had it available for our use. The kitchen was fully stocked with all bakewares, dishes, utensils, etc. The handy beach cart was also available along with multitude beach gears. The host thought everything in making the trip amazing. We all felt comfortable with the size and location. We would definitely book this place next time we return.

One of the most beautiful condos we’ve ever stayed in. The view alone from the lanai was breathtaking! The condo sits so close to the ocean with an incredible view of 2 other islands off in the distance. The lanai is so spacious with lots of comfortable seating options. To be honest we spent more time outside on the lanai than in the condo even though the inside of the condo was gorgeous. Everything was brand new and well appointed from the beautiful furniture and furnishings to the entire kitchen equipment and accessories. The condo is located at the end of the hallway on the 5th floor which gives you lots of privacy. The condo smelled wonderful, was extremely clean and well stocked with the essentials. The small black make up towels in the bathrooms were such a nice touch! The large closet as you enter the condo was stocked with all of the beach gear you could want or need. The condo is extremely spacious. The location allowed for easy access to groceries, restaurants and food trucks across the street The beach in front of the condo was small but convenient. We drove to Whalers Village on several occasions for the beach, shopping and oceanfront restaurants. We would absolutely return to this condo and highly recommend it to everyone! You will not be disappointed! Mahalo

Great spot with awesome balcony overlooking the ocean. With sliding glass doors into bedroom open, haven't slept that good in years. Lots of room, solid kitchen. Beach itself a bit minimal but close to others. Overall we were very happy with the decision to go with this one.

The condo was very well appointed and decorated. I would have to say it was the best VRBO, rental we have ever been in for kitchen tools and beach utilities ever!!! Well done! View of the ocean, incredible sunsets, island views of Molokai and Lanai, accessible swimmable ocean beach and pools - simply the best! Everything you would need was available and easily located. Love the Kaanapali location - grocery, restaurants, local breweries, wonderful beach walk walking distance or a short drive. Location also provided you daily beach needs. Management was very responsive and worked to make our visit the best ever! We highly recommend this site! (BTW…one of our global things is to find the best calamari appetizer….Kaanapali Shores restaurant on site is in our top 3!!!!). Go. Enjoy. Live!

We loved our stay in Maui. This home is so well stocked and so comfortable. It had everything we needed for the beach - towels, nice chairs, a wagon. It also had everything we needed in the kitchen! We’d definitely recommend this location to friends and family. It’s close to the Ka’anapali beach trail, where we enjoyed morning walks. The beach is a little rocky - so maybe bring water shoes. Also - no need to stop at Walmart, there’s a nice grocery store across the street. Overall great place! Hope we make it back someday.

We had an excellent and relaxing stay with our three teenage daughter's. The condo was just as described and the views from the wrap around balcony were incredible. It was so handy having umbrellas, beach chairs, towels and bags available for our use. We had one issue with the coffee maker and a new one was delivered quickly so that we didn't have any caffeine withdrawals ha! Check in and out couldn't have been easier. Definitely worth the stay! Thank you!

Extremely clean and well equipped condo with a huge lanai. We watched mom and baby whales from the lanai for hours. A huge sea turtle and seal even came up on the beach below during our stay. Condo is very quiet with great resort amenities. Loved that the condo had binoculars and a cart for carrying groceries from the car to th unit.We will be back.

We have stayed at many places in Maui and this one is BY FAR the nicest. It is decorated like a personal home not a rental. The views are spectacular and as advertised. The value for the money is perfect. Highly recommend. We will be back soon This will be our fo to property from here on. Thank you for a great experience.

The views from the balcony are 180 degrees of ocean view with whales coming so close! Location is just right, 10 min to Northern beaches, 5 min to Kaanapali beach and restaurants, 15 min to Lahaina downtown. The local beach doesn’t connect to Kaanapali beach, so a short drive is required. The hotel staff is super helpful and very friendly. The amenities are great as well. The hotel restaurant is delicious, nothing fancy, but food is great. The apartment is in great shape, it does need some fixes here and there, but didn’t bother us at all. We received a nice welcome gift of chocolates and cookies, very nice; and shampoo, conditioner, and body wash were very good quality, thank you to the owners (I forgot mine, it was very nice surprise to find those in the bathroom). All in all, it was an outstanding stay and experience! We absolutely will come back next time! Mahalo!
