About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)

The exclusive Bay Villas are located on the shoreline above Oneloa Bay, with spectacular views of the ocean and the island of Molokai. Our front-row ocean view retreat is a two story, private end unit. The entrance welcomes you with flowering hibiscus and the sound of tropical birds in the plumeria trees. This 1000 sq.ft. beautifully furnished get-away has floor to ceiling windows that overlook the ocean, gardens, and heated pool below.

Relax as you listen to the waves. Watch sailboats glide by, along with the whales when in season. The upstairs bedroom loft has a romantic 4-poster with a deluxe queen pillow-top mattress, and a wonderful view of the ocean from the bed, or the adjacent lanai. You will feel as if you are in your own special sanctuary. Downstairs, there is a large lanai off the living area (both areas have ocean views). The lanai is furnished with a dining table for 4, plus 2 loungers. Inside, in the living area, relax with the DVDs, CDs, and novels provided for your enjoyment. (There are TVs in both the living area and master bedroom.) The kitchen is fully equipped, and includes elegant table settings for tropical dining. Conveniently located below the townhome is one of the 3 heated pools on the property. The pool area has an outdoor shower, restrooms, gas grills, loungers, sun umbrellas and tables for dining.

Kapalua Resort (home of January's Hyundai PGA Tournament of Champions) includes: 2 golf courses, tennis gardens, the Ritz Carlton Hotel, 2 spas, restaurants, and shops- all within minutes by car of your location. .....For a bit of pampering, stroll over to Spa Montage at Kapalua Bay, located 2-3 minute walk from the townhome. It offers: outdoor massage hales, yoga, fitness facility, private stone soaking tubs, beauty salon, boutique, juice bar, and more......And for activity info and trail maps, go to the Village Center building on Office Road. Kapalua's logo/gift shop (in same location) has a great selection of resort clothing and accessories.

If sand between your toes sounds refreshing, Oneloa Beach is a 3 minute stroll from the condo, along the Coastal trail/boardwalk. Also within walking distance are: Kapalua Bay (10 min), Napili Bay (13 min), and Fleming Beach (20 min). These are beautiful beaches for swimming, snorkeling, and sunsets. The resort also provides a free shuttle- call for pick up. Kapalua is a great place for walking, whether by the ocean or under towering Cook pines. With soft breezes, abundant rainbows, and gorgeous views at every turn, you will soon feel your cares slip away.

Historic Lahaina is just 10 miles away (17 minutes by car). Enjoy shopping and fine dining all along the West Maui shoreline; in addition to water sports, luaus, farmers markets, and many art galleries.

You will find that Kapalua, which means 'Arms Embracing The Sea', will embrace you time and time again.

Mahalo Sharon & Barry

  • 5 of 5

Sharon and Barry's townhouse was exactly as expected...great views, perfect location, comfortable and relaxing. Morning walks/runs to the Ritz Carlton and down to D.T. Fleming Beach and back along the Coastal Trail right to the unit; "sundowners" at Oneloa Beach; walking the paved trail to Kapalua and Napili Beaches for outstanding snorkeling - go everywhere on foot, or take your car out to explore the many sights of Maui. Mahalo for a fantastic holiday!

Great location and perfect place to relax with amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

Upon arriving we were impressed with how well this area is kept up and how quiet it is. Away from the crowds in Lahaina and Kaanapali, this was perfect for us as a couple. Sharon was amazing to work with, delivered exactly what she advertised and we felt very comfortable with their condo - it had everything we needed for the week. We didn't mind not having A/C, with the ceiling fans and windows open we were always comfortable and loved hearing the sounds from the ocean. Decorated very nicely and set in a nice tucked back spot, we felt like the location within the Bay Villas was great. Super close to the pool, which closed at 8 and noise was never an issue, nor were crowds. Comfortable bed, great patio for coffee mornings or wine in the evening........and just a great retreat spot for a couple! Walking to the beach was either direction. We miss it already.........we'll be back!

Everything was wonderful--the home itself and the neighborhood. Beautiful view out onto the ocean from the bedroom. Highly recommend for anyone wanting a quieter feel to their Maui trip. Be sure to rent a car.

My husband and I stayed in this villa for 11 nights, and it ticked all the boxes... well furnished, with everything you need in the kitchen, and with respect to linens, beach chairs, eskis, music, etc... we loved having the extra half bathroom as well. The ensuite is large w ample cupboard space... a real plus! The view is lovely and proximity to pool/BBQ a plus as well.

The resort itself is amazing... great restaurants within walking distance, an incredible spa, and of course a short walk to Kapalua Bay for lovely snorkelling, swimming, paddle boarding. (BYO gear or rent from kiosk at beach).

We also had my 73 year old mum join us for part of stay. She took the sofa bed and said very comfortable.

We will absolutely return!!

A little piece of heaven

  • 5 of 5

So amazing! Their is no better place to stay in Maui. The whole Kapalua area is stunning and manicured. I don't even know where to begin! There was something for everyone.

From our morning run along the stunning coastline and through the beautiful area to body surfing out the front door and the hours spent snorkelling with sea turtles. This trip truly blew our minds.

We loved staying in this villa. There was everything we needed and definitely enough space for our family of four. It certainly shows like the pictures.

The owners were fabulous and answered any questions we had and were so helpful in planning our trip.

It's nice to have local property managers (Sullivan) as well that can help if needed. They were really good to deal with as well.

I wouldn't hesitate to highly recommend this property to anyone. We can't wait to go back!!
