"We had a fantastic time in your beautiful home, pool, beach, hot tub, whales, snorkeling. We did it all. Your home is so comfortable to stay in. Only one problem with a place this spectacular - time flies by."
"Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful home. It looked wonderful online and is even more wonderful in person. It was paradise. A very big thank you to everyone" at Tropical Villa Vacations.
"From the moment we inquired about the property till the moment we left the level of service has been outstanding."
"Dear Owner, Thank you so much for providing us with such a beautiful backdrop for our family vacation. We don't want to leave. In fact the men are out on the patio 10 minutes to departure cold drinks in hand, refusing to leave. It was so wonderful to feel we could just relax here at the house rather than spend our entire vacation running around looking for excursions. Everyone found peaceful corners in the house to find solitude and yet the rooms were large enough for the whole group to gather in. We loved the kitchen and I think we will all be sad to go home to our smaller and less fancy kitchens. Thank you for sharing your home with us. It was an absolute dream."
"We are feeling very sad as we prepare to leave your little piece of paradise today. We are from Indiana where a water view consists of the Ohio River. We love your home. You thought of everything in the kitchen. We love to cook and spent a lot of time doing so with the help of your perfectly stocked facility. The pool area is gorgeous. We felt like we were swimming in a hidden lagoon. The great beach access made it easy for us to go our separate ways when in the mood. Thanks for the books, the Hawaiian bath products, the music, beach equipment, tiki torches, hammock, and on and on. Heaven on earth!!".

The exceptional swimming pool reflects graceful palm trees which frame the garden. Swim under the stars at night by the light of tiki torches. We love this pool and consider it one of the most attractive and inviting of any vacation home in the islands! During cooler months the pool is heated on a complimentary basis.
The great room of Sea Shells Beach House opens to the outdoor patio and pool and has cathedral ceilings with two lounging areas in addition to an entertainment center with iPod dock, CD surround sound, DVD, VCR and new flat panel LCD television with premium channels and digital reception. The kitchen has just been re-stocked with all new supplies and small appliances commensurate with luxury standards, including an espresso machine, coffee grinder, abundant service ware, red and white wine glasses, champagne flutes, martini glasses, Henckel knives, top quality cookware, and so much more to use and enjoy! In particular, we are fond of the new center-island wood table, expansive granite counters, dual dishwashers and sinks, and large Sub-Zero fridge with ice maker.
Each of the 3 bedrooms has its own private en-suite bathroom and entertainment system. A convenient office nook provides a large desk, ethernet cable to hook into the high speed cable modem, office supply, fax, and brand new multi-function office machine. There are two laundry centers. Use of the garage is available.
The single level design of Seashells Beach House provides very comfortable living for guests with limited physical movement. This property can be enjoyed by guests using a wheelchair although it is not specifically out-fitted for special needs.

A convenient beach front restaurant, Castaway, is adjacent to the kiosk serving breakfast, lunch and dinner in a casual beach front setting. The primary Ka`anapali Resort hotels as well as Whaler's Village Shopping Center and its many restaurants featuring live music on the beach, can be reached within 1-2 minutes by car or on foot if you hike some distance down the beach through the Sheraton Ka`anapali Resort, then along a paved pedestrian walking promenade that hugs the coastal beach. From the heart of Ka`anapali Beach hop on a sailing catamaran for a snorkel sail, scuba diving, or romantic sunset cocktail cruise.

What makes this house unique
Private Beachfront Home in Kaanapali
Guestbook comments from the manager
We LOVED this house! Location was incredible, but the level of service was beyond that. The house was incredibly clean and well-supplied. The layout was utilitarian (in a good way) and the house was infinitely comfortable. We were so very happy there, almost unbelieving that we could be somewhere so.. Wow. We would recommend the house and the rental company (Tropical Villa Vacations) to anyone without reserve. An incredible week that we can only hope to replicate closely sometime in the future.
