We arrived at the villa after 3 days in more rugged but gorgeous Hana (as a side note: don't just take the road to Hana; stay there and soak it in!). This lovely Kapalua Golf Villa was just as advertised -- an updated and elegant home away from home. It is the most northern resort on the west side, and the area can get some weather, but it was beautiful and very nice to be on the quieter end of all the west side resorts. You will need to pick up supplies on the way -- follow the hosts' instructions and you will find your way to this unit easily and well taken-care of.
Kapalua is on the northern part of the west side, so reaching many if not most places from here requires a car. There is a covered spot right outside for your parking convenience. Inside, the hosts have thoughtfully provided beach chairs, boogie boards, tennis racquets, beach towels, etc. The in-unit full-size laundry is a lifesaver.
By staying in the villas, you have access to the free shuttle, which we highly recommend for the days you want to enjoy the beaches close to home. Oneloa ("Ironwoods") had enough waves in the afternoon for some boogie boarding. Kapalua Bay has rental stand-up paddle boards, lounge chairs, kayaks, and umbrellas -- we saw a huge sea turtle there and there was some decent snorkeling (eels, etc.) -- the bottom is rocky so not ideal for riding any waves. Heading north to see the blowhole was fun. We loved our crack-of-dawn snorkeling tour of Molokini -- highly recommended.
The unit has one large king bed in an upstairs loft. My husband and I slept upstairs, and our children (10 and 13) happily camped out on the large couches downstairs (the hosts have plenty of extra pillows, sheets, blankets, etc.). It would not be an ideal situation for more than two adults, unless those adults are fine with sleeping on high end couches (we would have been). There is a lovely lanai with a table and a view of the immaculate grounds.
Any (minor) housekeeping issues were resolved lightning fast by the attentive owners. Thank you, Bev, for opening your home to us! We hope to find ourselves on-island and able to take advantage of your hospitality again soon!
