Beautiful grounds, many different seating and swim areas. The restaurant is wonderful. Our unit was spacious and clean. Very fresh. Every need was anticipated - kitchen, bath, and beach. The best part was sitting on the balcony whale watching.

The condo, grounds, and location were great! No wars over chairs at the pool and the beach was lovely. The room was as described in the listing and in reviews. The internet was so bad. Only worked in the kitchen, none in bedroom or balcony and very spotty at pool. That’s our only complaint it was a really great stay!

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Nice location. Great view. Condo dated and needs some upgrades. Housekeeping prior to stay was questionable. On the plus side easy parking close to condo. Beautiful resort at Ka’anapali Shores.

Spouse & I had a good stay at this condo for 12 days. The condo is exactly as advertised. Clean unit, good air conditioner & hot/strong shower spray are 3 of our must haves, and this condo clicks all those boxes. The resort property is well kept and clean. We enjoyed the pools, on-site restaurant & walking path down the coast. We also enjoyed being within walking distance to several meal options. Bill was a pleasure to work with & communication was great. We keep in touch via text during our stay. One thing to note (not negative, just more of an fyi). For those who may have to do some work while staying in the condo-The WiFi included has low security & was a little slow & unstable. Not really an issue for "non work" related usage, but for those of us who travel/work & need to upload/download & Zoom, I just wanted to mention it.

We liked the location with great pool right on ocean front and sandy beach. Easy to get around Kaanapali. Room was fine with basic kitchen items, comfy king bed. The safe did not work which was something we really wanted to keep travel documents safe. This needs fixed. Rain came in under the door when it rained twice. The patio door locked on its own when we were outside. This could have been disaster but we did have our phone to call property and they helped us. In general it is an older style but was great for us.

The location is perfect and the unit has everything one could need. Excellent swimming pools and the ocean waves putting you to sleep at night. Simply ideal for Maui.

The property and grounds were absolutely gorgeous. We stayed here at prime whale season and I have to say the binoculars in the room was one of the best features as we watched whales breaching multiple times a day. The owners were very prompt at answering our phone call when we needed them. Highly recommended!!!

We love Maui and this property is nice enough, on the beach and in a great location. BUT, it could disappoint in some ways. The window does not open in 2nd bedroom (huge bummer if you look forward to ocean breezes and sounds of waves) as well as screen doors that can be hard to open (master bedroom, mostly). TVs were a bit hard to use (updated smart tv's would be optimal) and we were surprised when the fuse blew when hair dryers are used at the same times in each bathroom. We made sure that only happened once. :-) It took a while to locate fuse box behind a picture hanging in the hall, so that power could be back on in the bathroom. The owner was super responsive and overall there was good communication! Kitchen was decently appointed, plenty of beach towels. Loved watching whales from the lanai and our stay here didn't damper our vacation. It's an older building. lovely grounds, just have stayed in nicer properties for this price point.

This unit was perfect for my husband and I. The description and pictures of the unit are spot on. The unit is new, clean and tastefully decorated. The common areas of property and pool areas are clean and landscaped beautifully. We never had any trouble getting a spot at the pool any time of day and the restaurant on the grounds is good too! We reached out to the owner with questions a couple of times and they responded immediately. I would definitely stay here again!

Great location close to all the fun restaurants and also close to hiking and snorkeling up by Napili. The condo has all you need for a comfortable stay. Great bed. Nice partial view of the ocean. Furniture comfortable, technology good. The resort has fun activities, restaurant/ bar has a great view for whale watching with talented musicians a couple of days a week. Nice pools. Liked being on the 3rd floor so the car was on the same level.

Our family of 5 loved staying at this property! They provide everything you'd ever need for your stay- snorkel gear, beach chairs, beach toys, cooler (used for our Road to Hana trip), even water shoes. Beds are comfortable, washer/dryer was nice to have, no need to buy salt and pepper- they had some. The pools and hot tubs were great, they provide sunscreen at the pool if needed, we enjoyed seeing the monk seal on the beach and the whales in the distance, we played pickle ball, and tennis. The location is perfect, we walked to get pizza and Hawaiian ice. Staff is friendly, we used the concierge to book some excursions (zip lining, whale watch, luau, snorkel trip)- she was great! I would recommend this property to friends and family!

The unit was very clean and hospitable , and the Stice Team did a great job answering my questions and addressing my needs over text. Two thumbs up!

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: This was one of three units that Hawaii Life Real Estate Brokers was able to coordinate for our family vacation. Megan was exceptionally helpful prior to our trip, ensuring our units were ready for our families and we had easy check-in, particularly since we didn't arrive until the middle of the night.This particular unit is a bit dated and not as thoroughly stocked as the other two units, but fine for us. We discovered the very useful folding wagon(worth mentioning in the overall blurb as it's so very handy to know right at the beginning.) Great pool and hot tub, with lots of available chairs in both shade and sun. Beach chairs and umbrellas provided as indicated. Mahalo!

The room had a great view of the ocean and the beach. The space was large. The bed was comfortable. And the water pressure was great. However… we killed over 100 bugs, and VACASA WAS NOT HELPFUL. They told us to buy our own bug spay and said they could not help nor could their local team. Locals and the resort all said this was NOT normal. 1. The Space is VERY dated. 2. The Kitchen has listed amenities is drawers that can’t be used unless you move the fridge 3. The Kitchen counter was broken, drawer by the microwave was broken. And the floor was sticky. 4. The lighting is cold and has a greenish tint to it. 5.) Vacasa takes no ownership and is completely unhelpful.

Robert was awesome to work with- very accommodating. The check in and check out processes were so easy. The property is in a great location and was super clean with comfy beds. It could use a little updating, but it didn’t affect our stay at all. We would stay here again!

My wife, myself and two family members stayed at this Kihei location for a week in January, 2024. The property was as described and we were very pleased. The view from the lanai is stunning, We observed whales and sea turtles every day. I snorkeled several times off the reefs directly on front of the property. The location is very convenient with an ABC Store within easy walking distance as well as restaurants and shops. The best thing about our stay was the host. Although Skye was not located in Maui, he was very attentive to our questions and requests before and during the stay. He did all he could to make our stay go smoothly. We did have a couple of minor issues with the property and he addressed them immediately. That is all I could ask from any host. We loved the property and would stay there again if the opportunity comes again. I do have to mention a couple of items about the property so that any future renters will be prepared. The main bedroom is wonderful with a separate bath and spectacular views of the ocean. However, the second bedroom is quite small, barley large enough for a full sized bed. Persons in that room may be disappointed. It would be great for kids though. Also, there is a large air conditioning unit that is on the lanai. Not only does it take up a lot of space, but when it is running is noisy and blows hot air. This was annoying at first, but turned out to be not much of an issue as we did not need to run the air very often.

Unfortunately the photos do not accurately reflect the condition of the unit. It is in dire need of a good cleaning. The carpets were soiled, the doors were dirty and needed painting. The mattress was extremely uncomfortable leaving us with a backache and the pillows were lumpy. The towels were near the thickness of paper towels. We left and when to a hotel. A terrible waste of money. No secure internet and they didn’t even know what I was talking about when I asked for the network name and password. Terribly disappointing. The one accurate statement in the listing is the view. It was lovely. The entire property was in desperate need of cleaning and updating.

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!

We had a great stay at 706 Kannapali shores! Location and view is amazing! Check in process was very easy. Property has all the amenities as described.kitchen had all the appliances and was happy to see some basic spices already stocked. The view from balcony is amazing and beach is right there for a walk or swim. Sunset is visible from the balcony. Lot of food options in walking distance. Host had beach chairs and umbrella which came very handy. Great experience staying at the property! I highly recommend!

Super convenient location: across street Times Market, restaurants, food trucks, ocean, highway access ... Master bedroom comfy. Pull-out couch for sleeping a bit lumpy but works. Tasteful decor. Great pool and ocean view from balcony. Has washer/dryer a real must for travelers swimming. All appliances, kitchen tools needed. Love that you can park ground level without having to park in a many storied parking structure. Only drawback of unit - all plates are plastic and state NOT Microwaveable. You will cook/reheat lots in a vacation condo.

The condo's new renovations/upgrades are beautiful. Both bathrooms were beautifully done and had great water pressure and temperature and lighting. The gift bag from Vacasa was very useful and appreciated (reusable shopping/beach bag with lots of great snacks). The location was great for us. Close to both Napili (which we know well) and the Kaanapali resort area restaurants. But the food trucks out front were the best food options. I'm not a food truck guy, but they were the best food we had during our stay. And there are about 9 of them so plenty of types of food. I highly recommend. The lanai had ocean views and we did see whales in the distance. No sunsets at this time of year as you can't see south. It was also a bit windy up there almost every day. Not sure if it's always like that but we were there 8 nights and we couldn't stay out there too long. Assuming we had bad luck if I were to make a suggestion I would get a smaller table to be able to fit and maybe have lounge chairs. The only disappointment is the living room is still a bit outdated. The couch is very old and the TV is the size of my PC monitor and unviewable from the couch. You don't go to Maui to watch TV. However, after an active day it's nice to unwind and cuddle up. Also, there's the rainy days. We used the master bedroom TV. Also note, there's no streaming option (just basic cable). Also there's a floor above and you hear the screech of chairs and footsteps unless you're lucky (typical of condos).

The space is cute and updated. It has a great view of the ocean. It has so many things you will need to do on the beach. We used snorkel gear. It includes everything you need to cook if you’re planning on that. The location is close to shopping and great restaurants. Highly recommend.

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.

The unit was nice. We had previously stayed at larger units/resorts but needed to bring our costs down for this trip and found very good value here. A clean unit, well laid out, resort had enough amenities. Because we booked through My Perfect Stays (via Expedia) we didn't get access to all of the resort services, but I was very impressed with the level of service offered by MPS. Every time I emailed due to a question or issue the response was very quick and everything was handled to our satisfaction.

Reviewer Comments: We booked 2 separate units for our family trip and had an absolutely wonderful time here!The unit is very well equipped with everything you need and MORE (stocked kitchen, beach chairs, beach wagon, cooler, umbrellas, beach/pool toys, they even provided a pack-and-play and highchair)!The unit is on a beautiful property with two pools- one ocean front 'adult pool' and another kid friendly in the garden area, which we actually preferred. The location is great! Walking distance to a grocery store, farmer's market, ABC and some late night spots. You are right on the beach and it's a quick 3-5 minutes to get to the boardwalk (Duke's is a 10 minute or less walk). You are about a 8 minute drive to Whaler's Village.The room itself was clean upon arrival. Beds were comfortable. The winning aspect of the room was for sure the view it provided! The Team managing the property were very responsive to any inquiry leading up to the trip and during our stay. They also provided us with easy check in and check out instructions which made the stay extra smooth. Quite possibly the friendliest and easiest property management I've encountered. Would highly recommend and hopefully we can visit again!

The unit is very much as advertised. Spacious unit, well maintained and clean upon arrival. It was equipped with more than expected (all the kitchen necessities, beach/pool toys, beach chairs, cooler, umbrellas, etc!!). The grounds were very beautiful and well kept. The complex has 2 pools, one ocean front and one in the garden which is very kid friendly. Visually very pretty to walk around. The location was also perfect for us. There's a grocery store right across the street, ABC 2 minutes away, some late night eat spots all walking distance. You're also a 3-5 minute walk to the boardwalk which was lovely to walk along and check out all the other hotels and beachside restaurants (Duke's is 600 m away). No complaints here! Was a great stay. :)

Very clean, comfortable and updated rental in a great location on Maui. Beautiful new pool. Walkable and/or quick drive to grocery, restaurants and the Ka'anapali beach walkways. Kitchen well stocked for cooking and meals in, AC worked great, amazing views. We joked that the elevator was the quickest we've experienced anywhere, every time. So don't worry about being on the 7th floor... easy to access and better views!
