Gorgeous views, very comfortable

  • 4 of 5
We stayed in this Kapalua Ridge Villa as a couple for a week over Christmas on our first visit to Maui and were very pleasantly surprised. Terri and Diane from Ridge Realty were very helpful and well organised from the start, and one or both apparently live in the resort so were available to help with late check-in arrangements. On our first morning, we woke to spectacular, panoramic (180 degree) ocean and Moloka'i views from the upstairs bedroom, complete with rainbows and whales frolicking in the bay! The unit itself was very comfortable, although the furniture is a bit dated; however, this is in line with what we've come to hear about most accommodations on Maui. The kitchen was fairly decent and we were able to cook a Christmas feast. It was lovely to find a few basics (spices, olive oil, tinfoil etc) in the cupboards upon arrival (and the beers and frosted glasses were a nice touch too...). The elevated views from the front windows and lanais make for dramatic sunset views but the downside is that the unit is a fair distance from the nearest beach. We chose to drive because it's too far to lug beach bags, towels, snorkelling gear, chairs etc, but a reasonable alternative would be to use the resort shuttle. Parking spaces for cars in the lots (and butts on the sand) can be challenging to find in the busy season, so we went to the beach early in the mornings. The hall cupboard held the following treasures: a set of snorkelling flippers and goggles, beach chairs, a beach mat, a beach umbrella and a cooler box, in addition to some beach toys. There are 3 great beaches within the resort area: Kapalua Bay (which is great for snorkelling and gentle on kids), Oneloa Bay (a bit wilder and good for surfing) and DT Fleming (good for snorkelling, with lifeguards on duty because the current can apparently be a bit strong). Kapalua Resort was in pristine condition -- not a leaf was out of place in the beautiful gardens and we wondered whether the immaculate state had to do with the Hyundai PGA Tournament which was due to start the following week, or whether this truly was just paradise....:)
