Aloha and Welcome to our little piece of Paradise.

Stroll down the boardwalk to Whaler's Village located next door, where you will find a number of award winning restaurants and upscale shopping for your enjoyment. Enjoy a Mai Tai while watching the Maui sunset or listen to live Hawaiian music while dining under the stars.

There were no surprises, the description on the site was accurate, and the owner did his best leading up to the stay and during the stay to be accomodating and answer questions. The best parts about this condo was it slept the 4 of us (parents, two teenage boys) with privacy for the parents. Kids slept in the living room on a pullout, which was just fine. Having two bathrooms was a major plus, and the lanai was very large and we enjoyed sitting out there for breakfast or coffee. For those familiar with the area, my personal opinion is this is the best location on Kaanapali beach - close to Black Rock and right next to the conveniences of Whalers Village. Owner was very good, and the cleaning staff he put us in contact with were outstanding. The finishings are a bit dated, but most certainly clean, well kept, and servicable. Two new flat screen TVs and one of them we were able to get Netflix on (perhaps both were possible, but never put the effort in beyond using one - priority in Maui certainly wasn't watching TV, but a nice to have at the end of the evening for the boys). We didn't really prepare too many meals in the Condo, but did make breakfast everyday. May seem like a silly thing to comment on, but the pots/pans/utensils were very well stocked if that's important to someone looking to make meals on their own. The BBQ's at the condo were fabulous and the times we used them did not have a line-up. We found the Maui Fish Market (maybe a 5 minute drive at most - Lower Honoapiilani Hwy) had the freshest local seafood we could find (Tuna, Ona, Mahi Mahi), if that is of interest.
Ultimate question is would we stay here again or recommend to friends, and for myself and family our answer would be "yes, if we can get it". If I couldn't get this specific condo, I would try to get something in the Whaler.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this condo. Everything was as described. It is a very convenient location and the amenities were great! My family and I would absolutely consider staying in this condo again!
Very nice and very clean place, but, very dated so do not expect it to feel shiny and new. Exceptionally large deck for a condo, comfy bed, beautiful grounds and beach. I had a hard time reaching the owner by phone as the message service was full and could not accept any messages.
Beautiful view of ocean and mountains. Also great view of the gardens of the Whaler and Koi ponds.
From check in to check out everything went very smoothly. our condo rental was located on the 8th floor with a spectacular view. watched whales every morning from the lanai while eating breakfast. the condo was well stocked and neat and clean. Would very much love to stay here again. The owner was very easy to work with. Great location right next to whaler's village. You are able to be as busy or relaxed as you choose.
We thoroughly enjoyed staying in this unit and Chad went out of his way to be very helpful and accommodating. The condo is beautiful with all amenities to make it a "home away from home". This property is well maintained and clean.
Thank you for a wonderful vacation. We would recommend this unit to anyone.
