Fantastic Condo...Fantastic Stay!
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.
