Loved the location! Just a short walk to the beach and all the restaurants. Absolutely beautiful view! The condo was perfect for 3 couples. Watched beautiful sunsets! Perfect for whale watching. Hiked the Coastal Trail, just a short distance, loved it. Everything about our stay in Maui was perfect.

March 2024

We had a delightful time in this beautiful, well appointed condo. We could sit on the lanai watching the humpback whales jumping and breaching. The condo is very, very nice, our only problem was lack of wine glasses. We had friends over for a drink and because there were only 5 wineglasses my husband had to drink out of a plastic glass. The large bedrooms, each with a king-size bed and private ensuite bathroom were perfect.

The propery was updated nicely and had every thing we needed. It was clean and comforable. The weather wasn't good half of the time we were there, so it was nice to beable to play games at the table and look the windows to the ocean.

We were very impressed with our accommodations. My husband and I brought both sets of parents, and each couple had a king bed and an ensuite. The decor was modern, the furniture comfortable and the kitchen was very well stocked. The view was incredible and we spent many hours watching the whales. Even binoculars were included. The location was great, only a few minutes drive from shopping and beaches. It took about 10 minutes to walk down to the beach. Parking at the property was easy. We enjoyed the pool, which was not heavily utilized while we were there. We couldn't have asked for more and look forward to visiting again in the future.

Rating Details: The property manager was more than helpful. The vacation rental was very clean. 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: Our condo was situated in the heart of Kaanapali close to beaches, shops and food. Beautiful view of the ocean from our lanai and whale sightings galore. Condo was clean and well stocked with amenities. It was spacious and well suited for our group of six. Only suggestion would be better signage and outdoor lighting at front entrance as we arrived late at night and a bit difficult finding our condo #1. Overall we enjoyed our accommodations and would recommend this property.

I was worried about this location as it is on the hillside rather than beach front, where we usually stay. We mostly need a car to get to the beaches when in Maui anyway, so driving from this condo to any beach was a breeze. It was only a block away from Airport Beach. The views from our lanai were beautiful! We loved the sunsets and saw whales breeching nearly every day. The serene golf course in our backyard was so peaceful too. The condo itself was very comfortable and well appointed. We did alot of cooking and the kitchen had everything we needed. Plenty of seating for all of us to enjoy evenings in. We felt this was a really good value.

After two resort cancellations, 1 being just a couple weeks from our ETA, we were panicking trying to nail down a place to stay. We came across this great condo & couldn’t have been happier with our find. This modern condo suited our 7 person family perfectly. We had plenty of room and had everything we needed. Kaanapali Beach is a quick jog up the road, grocery stores and shopping is within a few minute drive. Communication was very helpful and always had a quick response. We would choose this condo without hesitation for our future Maui vacations—hopefully won’t be too long before we make our way back to paradise! Mahalo!!!

Stayed over Thankgsgiving...in general, property very clean and well furnished, but kitchen especially was well stocked and furnished! Was anxious about cooking Thanksgiving meal for family, (who live on island, but lost home in August fire) but it was a breeze and everything I needed was present. Loved the property and accomodations!!

Our family of 5 enjoyed a last-minute getaway to Maui. The host was quick to respond and accommodated our needs. Interior of property was very nice. Nice bedrooms and baths and great kitchen. The property did not include a grill or hot tub as indicated on the listing so if you want those as part of your holiday, they are not available. The property was an easy walk down to the beach and the host provided beach chairs, umbrellas, and beach towels. It's a good location in West Maui. Wishing the best for the residents of Lahaina ~ Mahalo!

The location was ideal for our family of 5 and it's very clean and well kept, with a very well equipped kitchen.

My family stayed at this property Dec 1 - 10, 2023. The accommodations were perfect for us - 6 adults and 1 infant. We really appreciated having beach chairs, beach umbrellas and coolers available to use. Also used the provided binoculars daily - saw whales and spinner dolphins! The welcome tray with snacks, chocolates and bubbly was a nice touch!

The property is older and could use some updates, but it suited our needs well. All appliances were in good working order and the kitchen is well equipped. Sitting on the lanai and watching for whales was very relaxing.

We could not have been any happier during our stay in paradise at this villa! The pictures online are exactly what the property is like in person. It is a beautiful home with so many amenities! We truly enjoyed our time there. The location is PERFECT for everything! The beach is a quick drive (and lots of parking available) from the villa, or you can walk it too. The owners checked in with us a few times to make sure nothing needed to be attended to. Our family was there with 3 teenagers (12-18) and grandma, there was something for everyone. The beach chairs were an added bonus! They were greatly appreciated and used often! We would absolutely stay there again when we visit Maui. Being a homeowner who also lists on Vrbo, I expect a lot from fellow owners' properties, and this place did not disappoint!

This was our first time to Maui. We love to cook, and had everything we needed, including spices. Everything we needed for the beach, such as chairs, towels, snorkel stuff and life belts. The bathrooms were updated, and clean. Beds were comfortable. Airconditioning worked well. Very quiet neighbors. If sitting on the decks the highway can be noisy at times (more like sirens from fire department). Beautiful sunsets, and we had a double rainbow too. We loved the location. Close to several beaches, golf, sights, etc. We loved visiting the blowhole, and dragons teeth close by. We also played golf on the royal course (north) which we were on the 13th hole. If you want to hit balls, The royal course will rent you 3 clubs for $5, and a bucket of balls was 10. We loved monkeypod, especially happy hour food deals and Mai Tai is a must try! Also, visit the sea house for breakfast (Napili). I love pickleball, and would recommend the Lahaina civic center (free). and open play starts about 7:15 am, over Napili Park (which seemed to have their own sets that played there). There is also the Kapalua Tennis Garden that has open play from 9-11 am for 20$. Open play is Tuesday and Saturday. No one played at the condo's tennis court that I saw, while staying. The pool looked crystal clear, but never swam in. We also ate at Mama's fish house. Didnt have a reservation, but visited the beach around lunch time, oneish and they had room at a table in the bar.

We live “ across the street” . This is A great location with a short hop to my opinion best beach in Maui (car ) , north kaanapali . The short hop creates a good value in some of the best weather on the island( in my opinion😀👊

Within the first 2 hours of our stay one of the upstairs showers leaked through the ceiling to the first story of our rental. Admittedly, the 2nd day of our visit was when the terrible Lahaina fire started. We had to evacuate on our 4th day very early in the morning. From the first day on and throughout our stay the majority of our communication with the VRBO management was through auto generated computer messages. My heart does go out to the people of Lahaina.

We’ve been to Maui multiple times and this was the best condo we’ve ever stayed in. The property was wonderful and the owners are outstanding hosts. Communication is easy and they promptly respond and were always extremely helpful. Would stay here again in a heartbeat!

My wife, my mother and I had to book at the last minute due to construction at another condo we had previously booked. I though we would be missing out on the view because it is further from the water. But the view was spectacular, the area was quiet, and away from all the people down by the water, and we would definitely stay here again. Even the beds were comfortable - which is not usually the case!

Recently stayed at this property in July with my family. The property was clean, all appliance were working properly, and it was very comfortable. The view from the Lanai was amazing! Sits on a golf course with unobstructed views of the water and sunset. The property is less than a mile from Kaanapali beach, approx. 5 minutes by car. Great spot . The property manager was also very responsive. MB

Thank you very much for the amazing stay. Everything was easy, from checkin, to check out, parking etc. Everything we needed was right in the unit. A/C was on before our arrival which was great as we did not arrive until 11:00PM. Kitchen has everything you need, view is spectacular, beds are comfortable, lots of space. Very unfortunate events that have occured there the last few days but I hope you have made it through.

This unit was an excellent choice for my husband and I to stay with our daughter and son in law. It was clean, comfortable and had everything we needed in a “home base” so we could explore. The view from the balcony was so beautiful and relaxing to both start and end the day. Check in and out was completely seamless. I didn’t see the pool, so I can’t comment on that. Definitely recommend!

This property greeted us with amazing views before even stepping inside the actual property. We walked in and it was exactly as described on the website. It was actually bigger than it looked in photos. We had one person use the pull-out sofa bed and said it was comfortable. The rest of our party had the bedrooms. The beds were very comfortable and the air conditioning worked great. The kitchen had just about anything you could need. A huge hit was the closet of beach gear. 5 of us had great beach chairs and 1 would lay on a towel but we didn’t actually need it as not all 6 of us were in the chairs at the same time. Half of us were usually in the water. Check in and check out was super easy and the host was very responsive if you needed her. Bring your snorkel gear as the beach straight down the road has amazing reef and fish. You definitely don’t need to book an excursion to snorkel. The water was perfect. We are already looking to possibly come back and stay here again next year. Aloha!

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was very clean. 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: The property was terrific and the view put it over the top. It was convenient to everything we wanted to do and nicely updated. My only complaint is that AC is listed as “central” but it’s only in the bedrooms upstairs meaning that wasn’t accurate. The downstairs has no air conditioning. With that said opening the doors so the breezes can blow through the unit make it very pleasant. In the heat of the afternoon it can get a little uncomfortable though because the sun sets toward the back porch. Other than that I highly recommend the property.
