Visit Paradise on Earth...
This privately owned and totally remodeled vacation condominium is located in west Maui's Kapalua Resort. This premier property has the absolute best view of any Kapalua villa in the resort.
This updated unit is first class luxury. It has beautiful travertine tile throughout the villa. We have all modern amenities: big screen TV,sound system, furniture, and appliances. Kapalua Beach is within walking distance and was voted the number one beach in the United States by Travel Magazine. Close by is the Ritz Carlton hotel, the new Kapalua Center (featuring Maui's Best Sushi Bar 'Sansei'), and the renovated and expanded Honoloa Store. Three world class golf courses are right here: The Bay, Village, and Plantation Course.
The only problem we ever have is; no one wants to leave.
Our unit is peaceful, luxurious, comfortable, and serene. Tranquility or activity are your choices. This is also our second home and we love it here.
We shared this condo with another couple. The upstairs is a complete unit with king size bed, super comfy mattress topper, complete bath with garden tub and shower, and an upper lanai with an amazing view.
The lower level also has a bedroom and two bathrooms with a large lanai and probably the best view in Kapalua. We used the provided washer and dryer quite often, cooked on the stove, and kept the fridge stocked with local produce. Very clean marble floors and tops through out.
Kapalua beaches are great with very few rocks. A little easier to learn "boogie boarding" than on the north beaches. Less than an hour to just about every island attraction.
We had an amazing time at this villa and stayed 9 nights with another couple. This villa is very spacious and has lots of room. The owners were good to deal with and the villa is far better in person (which we didn't think was possible)! It's in a perfect location within both Maui and Kapalua and we cannot say anything negative. We also saw whales everyday from our lanai! We loved Kapalua out of all the places we visited and would recommend this villa (and Maui) to everyone! You will not be disappointed!
We stayed in Rod & Stephen's unit during the height of "Spring Break", so I was concerned when booking a place back in December that I was too late in finding a good location. I should have thrown my worries out the window - everything about this condo was perfect for our family (location, beach accessibility, walk-ability, the grounds of the complex, the unit itself, and the people who live in the other units in this complex). We are hoping to stay here again.
First - the location of the complex is right in the heart of Kapalua Bay. You have access to a handful of different beaches. We have 4 kids (10, 8, 6, and 2) and we walked to all of them. You can get in a good run/walk around the bay because there are good sidewalks and/or beach paths to use. The restaurants on location are very good (loved Rod/Stephen's recommendation, Sensei) as is the little market.
Second - the unit itself....the pictures really don't do it justice. Every morning we had breakfast on the lanai, while taking in the views of Molokai, the coves/beaches and people getting in their bit of exercise before starting their day. And in the evening, we watched the sun set from the lanai - an amazing view as it sinks into the Pacific! The unit is also very clean - which can be tricky with the salt air, sand, and lots of people coming in and out, I'm sure. But it is so clean - you can tell it is taken care of very well! We had plenty of space for our family as well. Anything you need - the condo has. The blender is very efficient - we love fruit smoothies, so we used this every morning :-)
Third - the complex is just so inviting. It is like something out of a tv show or movie. We met some actual owners of different units when we were using the grilling spaces at the pool (a definite bonus). Most were retirees, and we had the best conversations (my kids and I love good stories - and these folks had some great life stories). The complex is maintained extremely well, with what seems good attention to detail!
Finally - our kids are young, but I can see this unit being the perfect spot when they are older/teens and want a bit of freedom of walking around/sight seeing or just need their own space (either in the unit or out/about).
As mentioned above, we are hoping to rent this villa again.
This villa had beautiful panoramic views of the ocean. We visited in December so we frequently watched the whales breeching from the main lanai. The villa was extremely clean and comfortable for the 5 of us. (all adults). The 2 large master suites with their own private lanais also overlooking the ocean were very comfortable. The 3 full bathrooms were luxurious with plenty of towels; 2 of them were very large. I liked the large closets in each master suite as there was plenty of space to put clothes and to store luggage. There was lots of extra sheets, pillows and some blankets. The laundry facilities in the villa was very convenient. The kitchen was beautiful and modern and was well stocked with dishes, cutlery, bowls/pots, blender, coffee grinder etc. The living room was large and extremely comfortable. You will enjoy the use of a nice DVD selection to watch on the large flatscreen and there is a great selection of books in the villa. The villa is conveniently close to the beautiful pool which also has some very nice clean barbecues; we frequently visited here. The villa is very close to some great restaurants such as Pineapple Grill, Plantation House, Merrimans to name a few. Lahaina which is only about 15 minutes away also has some great restaurants (David Paul, Lahaina Grill, Mala Tavern to name a few) and shopping. There are many nice beaches close by--Kapalua and DT Fleming and then Ka'anapali were our favorites. There are 3 nice beach chairs provided in the villa to use. If you enjoy snorkelling, Honolua Bay was our favorite but access to snorkelling in Kapalua Bay is easier. The villa provides an extra snorkel set in case you need one and if you need any supplies, Snorkel Bob's is very close by in Napili. The resort shuttles that you are able to use for free are great--we never had to wait more than 5 minutes for them to arrive at the villa and they take you anywhere in the resort. The Honolua store is close by and we frequently visited this place for lunch. If you run out of supplies (sunscreen, medications, food items etc), this place likely has what you need. When we return to Maui, we will be looking to stay again at this villa. The owners Rod and Stephen are great to deal with.
When looking for a condo to rent for a family of 6, especially in maui, things can get expensive to rent. So when I found Stephan and Rods condo I quickly called and made arrangements for Jan 11 - 22 /11. When I booked, Stephan immediately sent us an information sheet, telling us the who, what, where and why of maui. This infomation helped prepare us for our first time in maui. As well, they included there own personal cell numbers in case we had additional questions. All future emails or phone calls we answered quickly and perfessional. As stated, the condo is well stocked with towels, condiments, bedding, and of course 3 great TV's. The view from the lanai, is as stated, THE ABSOLUTE BEST VIEW IN KAPALUA. 300 degrees of pure beauty. The condo is in a quiet location, with its own private pool, or access to the Ritz Carlton, which is a nice option to have . Kapalua Beach is great for snorking, and DK Fleming for swimming and boogie boarding, all within 5 min of the condo. So if your looking for a fabulous family condo, with great views, all ammedities, and close to world class beaches inquire about VRBO 96784 I promise you won't be disappointed.
Coming to Maui, we were hoping to find a special place to create memories, and boy did we find it. The quick and professional responses to all my inquiries made the process quite easy. Rod and Steven did a fantastic job in responding promptly and courteously. Location was everything, from the renowed beaches to the amazing snorkling.... we swam with the TURTLES! We never needed to book any commercial trips it was right in our backyard! The atmosphere was calm, relaxing and comfortable; it was a great get away! There was never a day that I wasn't excited to experience the great adventures surrrounding our wonderful accomadations! Even with the wonderful adventures it was really great to come back to such a beautiful tranquil place away from the rat race. It really felt like a home away from home! It had the personal touches but was also very professional, making it a great place to stay. When your looking for a 5 star accomodation look no futher you found your place in paradise! THe owners were so helpful in every part of the process and were very accomadating to satisfy our needs. Cant wait to come back!
