About The Owner

Ever since our first visit to Hawaii in 1979 we were hooked. We knew finding a place on one of Hawaii's incredible islands would be our top priority. So we set out to discover each Island. We wanted an Island with fabulous uncrowded beaches, gourmet restaurants, fantastic hiking, great snorkeling and diving opportunities and high on our list...night life venues that offer romantic dancing or places we could sit relaxing in a cozy spot overlooking the ocean while listening to great music.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2003

Why The Owner chose Maui

After several years of visiting and exploring six of Hawaii's incredible islands our decision was clear. Without a doubt, MAUI is the place!! All of our requirements... and more are right here. Kapalua and Kaanapali have miles of beautiful golden sand uncrowded beaches... great for swimming and body surfing, fantastic snorkeling at Kapalua Bay, body surfing at Oneola and DT Fleming Beach, an 80 mile long hiking trail here in Kapalua encircles the entire Resort thru the mountains, pineapple fields down to the beach, gourmet restaurants and night life spots all over the Island... but especially here in Kapalua.

What makes this villa unique

Once the decision was made, our biggest requirement was that wherever we chose had to be Ocean Front and have an Ocean View from both the Living Room AND Master Bedroom. Our Penthouse Villa offers this and more. Even the guest room, kitchen and master bath shower have an ocean view. We adjoin 3 of the world's most beautiful beaches (Oneola, Kapalua Bay and DT FLeming Beach) as rated by Conde Nast and The Travel Channel. You have your choice of 3 heated Ocean View pools, barbecue areas with side by side grills at each pool, complimentary Resort-wide shuttle service, access to the best golf courses on the Island, complimentary tennis and night time lighted courts, access to Kapalua's Zip Line Adventure Center, on Resort grocery store and several of Maui's top rated gourmet restaurants are all within walking distance. Finally our on-site concierge service can help you make reservations with all the exciting whale watching/snorkel trips, Haleakala Volcano, Hana tours and more.

Guestbook comments from the owner

definitely be returning . Thank you for the beautiful accommodations and

A first class cut above the rest - perfection!

  • 5 of 5

Kapalua Bay Villas is a wonderful place to stay - the location is great with proximity to the gorgeous coastal trail, community amenities, etc. This unit is PERFECTION! We spoke with a few individuals staying in the area at other units, and the accommodations in these villas can vary greatly. We were VERY happy with everything in this condo. You have everything you need to enjoy your time in Maui (insulated beach bag, beach chairs, boogie boards, beach umbrella). Thanks to Patty's recommendation of stopping at Costco on the way in (we also got a great deal on our rental car through Costco) we were able to cook or heat up many meals right in the villa, avoiding most of the high priced Maui dining experiences. We have rented villas on other islands, such as St. John in the USVI, and I will say that this Villa is first class all the way. Our best excursions were to Kapalua Beach for snorkeling (drive or walk) and to the Old Lahaina Luau. We also took a whale watching tour, but we found the best whale watching is right from the villa (I'm not kidding!) We also loved watching the turtles at the west end of Oneola right in front of the condo. They swim in very shallow waters there and even come up on the beach sometimes. The views are truly outstanding from literally EVERY room - the pictures just do not do it justice. It is breathtaking. I cannot express how difficult it is to leave - this place truly felt like home in every sense of the word and I know we will be back. Thanks Patty!

Everything was absolutely perfect!! We saw whales every day and they are visible from every room in the Villa. IT is immaculately clean, spacious and beautifully furnished. The owners were perfect ... easy and professional to work with. We will definitely be back!

Holiday Family Vacay

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Kapalua Bay Villas was spectacular! This villa is beautiful and has the best location and view. It was plenty spacious for our family of 4. My only suggestion is to figure t a way to make the upstairs master cooler. I understand that with doors and windows open the unit will freeze but we couldn't seem to get upstairs cooled down to our liking in the evening. Other than that this experience was outstanding and Patty Cassidy was wonderful to work with. We will certainly be back and would highly recommend to anyone.

Owner's Response: We are so glad to hear you had a wonderful stay...and a bit saddened to hear you had difficulties cooling the upstairs Master. We always like to address any issues that might help make our guest's stay a little bit better. This is a brand new AC System and wish you had contacted us to let us know. I am certain we could have helped. We sure look forward to assisting you upon your return! Mahalo nui loa, Patty & Rick

Absolute paradise

  • 5 of 5

We cannot recommend this villa more highly. Gorgeous location with breathtaking views from every window. The location is super convenient- great restaurants accessible via free shuttle service- golf nearby and an incredible spa at the ritz Carlton - 5 minutes away. The villa is in excellent condition with two full master suites with spacious double sinked bathrooms. Washer and dryer, big screen TV and all the comforts of home. There is a private beach right below the villa or the beautiful Kapalua beach for snorkelling a few minutes away.( we enjoyed a twenty minutes swim with the friendliest sea turtle) perfect for two couple or a family. Love, love, loved it!!! Can't wait to visit again:)

Worth it!

  • 5 of 5

We have been to Maui many times. We have stayed in villas, hotels, and private residences. Everything about our stay was perfect. The website made booking easy. Patty gave simple instructions and helpful advice prior to arrival. Groceries in the fridge for our late arrival made our first breakfast easy. The place is beautiful and wonderfully located. Walk to the grocery store, the golf course, or the beach of your choice (snorkel at one, body surf/surf at another, swim at the third). Had we thought it out better, we would have packed less clothing since we could wash clothes as frequently as needed. I have never reviewed or rated any other location on this site. I do this only because we enjoyed ourselves so much and Patty was a joy to deal with.

Amazing location and Penthhouse! Location..Location..Location

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in many high end villas and hotels in Europe, the Caribbean etc..and this unit is gorgeous and luxurious and far from the crowds. The pictures on the website can not capture the beauty of the unit and the location. The master suite is stunning. The bathrooms are beautiful. The kitchen is perfection. The floor to ceiling windows are a work of art. We stopped for groceries at Costco near the airport and used the kitchen for breakfast and lunches. The Honolua Store is nearby for yummy breakfast and groceries. The kitchen had every possible amenity and we enjoyed meals with beautiful views every day and cocktails on the lanai. The unit was stocked with beach chairs, boogie boards, insulated picnic bag, beach had everything! The location is perfect with 3 beaches within walking distance on the beautiful path just steps below the condo. There are several pools to choose from. We were a party of 6 with 4 kids ages 13, 14, 17, 18). They loved Oneola Beach for boogie boarding which is directly below the condo. Kapalua Bay is a great snorkeling beach just a 7 min walk away. DT. Fleming is a short ride near the Ritz Carlton. The Cliff House is an 8 min walk and is great for cliff jumping (not for the faint hearted)! Kapalua zip lines was fun with amazing views. Merriman's is an amazing restaurant within a 10 min. walk away near the Montage! Sea House had a great tapas spread for Happy Hour on the beach. Lahaina is a 15 min car ride and is great little beach town. Patty had a great list of restaurant recommendations (all good!) and tried Mala Tavern which is oceanfront - go during sunset. , Duke's Beach House, Kimo's. For an inexpensive meal go a few doors down on Front St in Lahaina to Aloha Mixed Plate and order the local Loco Moco and a large glass of Bikini Blonde beer (a local brew). You can't leave Lahaina without trying Ululani's Shaved Ice. I would recommend the Pacific Whale Foundation's Molikini Wild Side Eco-Adventure if you want to snorkel Molikini. And you can't visit Maui without doing the bike down Haleakala and the road to Hana. Patti provides you with a concierge for activities and is a wealth of information! There is a beautiful church nearby we went for Sunday Services (Sacred Heart Missions Church). Our flight home was canceled and Patty graciously allowed us to stay until well past check out to await our new flight. I can't say enough about this ocean front condo...simply amazing and perfect!
