When we found this property on VRBO, we thought it had to be too good to be true. However, we are very pleased to see that the pictures very accurately reflected the actual view from the condo. The view was absolutely breathtaking of the ocean and enjoyed falling asleep every night to the sound of the surf. We also enjoyed the fact that this condo was located away from the usual tourist locations so it was very quiet all of the time and the beach in front of the house practically our own! The condo was conveniently located within walking distance to 3 beaches and within a short drive to 2 other bays that included fantastic snorkeling. The condo was located right on a trail which you could walk in either direction for several miles. John was a pleasure to work with through the entire process and provided us with great recommendations on where to snorkel and eat. We especially enjoyed eating breakfast at the Plantation house (less than a 5 min drive) and dinner at Sensi (sushi restaurant) and Merrimans (great cocktails, food, and views!) which are both within walking distance from the condo. Overall, we are very pleased with our stay and will absolutely stay here the next time we visit the island!

Peaceful

The condo was wonderful and the view was spectacular! We enjoyed running on the trails, snorkeling with turtles, walking on the beach, and listening to the ocean from the lanai. The condo itself had so many amenities it felt like home. My husband and I will be back and wish we could have stayed longer.

Great View, Bad Condition

  • 2 of 5
The first thing we noticed was how hard the door was to open and close. Upon entering the condo there was a musty damp smell. We removed our shoes to look around and then noticed how dirty our new white socks were, carpets need cleaning. The water pressure in the upstairs bathroom faucets and the shower is weak. The blinds upstairs are rusted and very hard to move up and down. The back of the downstairs drape looks like it possibly has some mold on it. The east facing living room window had a leak inside we heard a drip after the rain, we put a container under it and caught about a cup of water in three days. There is very bad peeling paint on the kitchen window. The electrical panel has a fair amount of rust inside of it. With the exception of the sliding door, the windows were in poor operating condition. Very odd that there was a door stashed behind the bedroom dresser.
Based on the VRBO website description we did not expect the condo to be in this condition. Clearly there is no pride of ownership for this unit. This unit does have a fantastic view. We would not rent this condo again.

Owner's Response: If you want to be close to the beach, hear the surf and have stunning views from inside your rental, I would recommend you stay here. It may not be perfect, but we think it is a great unit. One of the challenges of being one of the closest apartments to the beach and ocean at the Bay Villas is that our unit gets the harsh effects of the salt air. Our family has owned this apartment for 40 years and we are constantly upgrading and updating the apartment. While the blinds may have rust on the mechanism, our handyman and cleaning service spray silicon on them to keep them operable and hopefully they will not be hard to pull up and down. If the blinds are down, the wand to open and close them is easy to use and does not obstruct your ocean view when they are open. The carpets are professionally steam cleaned and scotch guarded twice a year and the last time was in August 2014. The carpets were replaced in 2012. Of course, the cleaning service vacuums the carpets before each visitor arrives. I cannot comment on the quality of the socks used in their test. If you look at the website picture of the kitchen, you will see the window the reviewer was referring to. The window sill at the bottom of the blinds needs to be painted and we will do that, but this should not affect the quality of your visit. As of Oct 2014, the pictures on the web site were taken in July 2014 and accurately reflect the condition of the unit. The reviewer could have commented on the new mattress, oven/stove and microwave, but chose not to do so.

Amazing

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent two weeks in paradise. The condo has a fabulous location. The view speaks for itself. It's great to wake up to the sound of the waves. The lanai is so perfect to enjoy your morning coffee or your evening cocktails. Most of our days decisions were made on the lanai to the beach or to the pool. Most days it was both. You are so close to great golf at the Bay or Plantation golf course. Not for the faint of heart. You can walk to one of the very best spas. We loved this condo, it has everything you need if you are dining in great kitchen or even bbq up at pool. Nice to have laundry available in condo, will have to remember not to pack so much. The first week ocean so clear you could see two sea turtles playing just off shore. We will most definitely be back next year. Also John is so easy to work with, and cares that you are going to have a great vacation experience.

Fabulous view and every comfort of home

  • 5 of 5
We arrived to beautiful weather and a breathtaking view. We went to Merriman's Kapalua Bay and realized the view was just as fantastic at our own condo back at the Bay Villas. The view is even better than the photos. We found everything to be perfect in the apartment and would highly recommend it to all travelers. We loved using the beach chairs, body boards and floats. Even the binoculars came in handy as boats went by quite often. The kitesurfing and wind surfers are fun to watch too. We will definitely be back next year!!

Good View, but Not Good Condition

  • 2 of 5
The owner/manager, John, was pleasant and easy to deal with. No doubt we had to stay in contact more than most tenants, as our stay was coinciding with the arrival of Hurricane Isell, but my emails were always replied to quickly. The reservation process was simple, and his refund policy is extremely reasonable.

Unfortunately, the condo itself did not meet our expectations based on the VRBO website description. There is no pride of ownership in this condo, and the condition of the unit is not worth the price being charged. The price is merely for the oceanfront setting, not for the accomondations. Yes, the unit is perfectly situated and has a terrific, unobstructed view. It would have been nice to have a chaise lounge (as shown in the VRBO pics), or even just a couple of chairs on the lanai off the bedroom, but there wasn't.

The front door is heavy and practically impossible to push open, and there is no door stop to hold it open. Not good for older folks or kids. My husband and I both said that neither of our mom's would have EVER been able to open the door. There is no water pressure in the bathroom faucets or in the shower. The bed is king sized and has nice pillows, but the mattress will need replacement before much longer. We kept the blanket wrapped around the ends of the metal bed frame for fear of running into it in the dark, which may have required a tetnus shot.

A prior visitor mentioned the washer and dryer. While the washing machine and dryer may be newer, it appears that using a front loading washer this close to the damaging ocean/salt air is crazy because the seal around the washer door is already leaking. Every time we did laundry there was a water puddle on the carpet. The washer and dryer are too big and the door to the utility closet where they are housed had to be taken off the hinges, but now the closet door is just stashed behind the bedroom dresser. One wall of windows in the bedroom has no blinds, which is not convenient since there is a neighboring unit window right next to it. John had told me they did not have a blind on the bedroom door, but what he didn't say is the door faces east so as soon as the sun came up every morning, the bedroom it would get 15 degrees hotter.

We come to Maui every summer, and will stay in Kapalua again because of the location and the quiet, but we will not rent this condo unit again. There are too many others available which are better kept for about the same price.

Owner's Response: First of all, I am sorry our guest was not happy. I truly want everyone who stays at our unit to enjoy their vacation and make every effort for that to happen. Our guest brought up some valid points. The front door is heavy. It does not have a door stop. The chaise lounges were removed due to the hurricane warning the day before the guest arrived. However, there were 3 outdoor chairs on the downstairs lanai for their use. We now have a chaise lounge on the downstairs lanai and upstairs balcony. The mattress was 3 1/2 years old, but we have purchased a new mattress and frame based on their suggestion. Even though there are no blinds on the front window to the bedroom, the room is very private. No one can see you as you lie in bed and without the blinds you wake up every morning viewing the ocean, surf and in the winter you can see whales. That is why I enjoy that room so much. The washer is still under warranty and if they had called and told us there was a problem, we would have had it fixed. We are in the process of ordering the needed parts. There is no utility door to the washer and dryer. The washer is not visible from the bedroom, living room or kitchen. You will see it as you walk up the stairs and walk into the bathroom. As I said, I am sorry they did not enjoy the unit, but if you read the reviews of guest who stayed 1 month, 2 months or 4 months before this reviewers arrival, they all loved the unit, thought it was great, enjoyed the dual showers in the bathroom, appreciated the condition of the unit and look forward to returning again. While we realize we cannot please everybody, we certainly do try to make a stay at our unit enjoyable.
