Heaven on Earth
My family of four (2 adults, 2 young kids) stayed at this luxury villa for 9 days and we loved it! It's right in front of the pool which is super handy when your kids would rather be at the pool than the ocean. It's about a 1-2 minute walk on a trail right out front to the ocean and a sandy beach (there is nothing beachfront in this complex because it's on a bit of a bluff - beach access is simple and easy - and you get sweeping ocean views because you are a bit higher up). Anyone concerned about the weather shouldn't be. It's a bit cooler but it's a relief because it's still warm and beautiful just not as stifling hot and humid as we found when we drove around the island - we were always happy to come back to what we felt was absolutely perfect weather. The villa itself is outrageous! It's so beautifully appointed and has every amenity you could think of. You could host a dinner party for 20+ guests there are so many place settings! Super plush bath towels and beach towels, robes, etc., every detail was there. The complex is lovely and it's quiet and relaxing! The location is really great too, championship golf courses, superb dining, beach is in a bay, there is a public beach just up the road where there is great surfing, there are 2 great bays/beaches just south of you and snorkelling is awesome pretty much off of any beach in Maui. I highly recommend the Sea House, just down the road, for breakfast - great prices, awesome location and views and the food is super - try the house made cinnamon roll. So, in a nutshell, this rental is amazing - it's spacious, well appointed, tastefully decorated and still cozy and truly, it just felt like home. We dealt with Dave at Platinum Maui Vacations and he was so nice. He went out of his way to make our vacation a dream and I can't speak highly enough about him.

Owner's Response: One of the things i love the most about my job is meeting such awesome people from all walks of life. The time you spent and the details that you mentioned Tracy, really bring this to light for me! What a well thought out review, clear down to the cinnamon roll at the Seahouse! This has to be so helpful to other travelers who have so many choices of accommodations!
I couldn't agree with you more for all the same reasons; the location on the shoreline in Kapalua, the convenience to more than one beach, the pool right in front of you, the weather that is usually perfect compared to so many parts of the island that can be very warm and humid, AND the amenities of the villa itself! The pictures look good but as most folks will attest, seeing it in person is awesome! Hopefully travelers take the time to watch the video which helps to share the perspective that you have experienced so they see how special this gem of a property is!
Many Mahalos for such a great review on behalf of the proud owners and myself!
