Overview

Maui Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Maui Kaanapali Villas is a low density resort located just north of Lahaina on the world famous Kaanapali Beach, which is rated one of the top ten beaches in the United States. The resort is set on 11 acres of beautifully groomed tropical gardens. The beach is a two-minute stroll from the unit.

The three pools were just totally redone with new hot tubs added. Also located on the grounds is the beachside Castaway Restaurant. Whale watching is at a premium right from the beach from December to April. Enjoy the clean, beautiful gas grills in 3 different locations on the property, 2 of which are close by.

This condominium (Banyan 242) was recently remodeled and redecorated. There is no other like it on property. Custom cabinets, new appliances, stone floors and counter tops were installed in the kitchen. The bathroom was also redone. The same stone was used on the bathroom vanity as well as the large, walk-in shower.

The living area is equipped with a queen-size wall bed, comfortable futon couch which could sleep two small children, and a table and chairs.

The wrap around lanai is perfect for relaxing and creating a cross breeze through the condo. Free wireless internet is also available in the room. One time cleaning provided on check out.

Free trolley to all of Kaanapali area which is also in walking distance. This condominium cannot be beat for price and location!

About The Owner

Troy is a commercial beekeeper in CA and works with 1400 hives. Susan is a retired children's pastor. In all her 'spare time' she loves to help her family in any way; visit or stay with her 100 year old grandma who lives with her mom, help out her mother-in-law, host lots of family get-togethers, baby-sit, play with and enjoy their 5 grandchildren and also do a little beekeeping with Troy whenever he needs help. We live on 10 acres and enjoy our dog and miniature donkeys. When we are in Maui we enjoy scuba-diving, hiking, visiting with new friends found at MKV and relaxing on our never-crowded beach.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2004

Why The Owner chose Maui

We began going to Maui in 1990 with our 2 children and always rented a friends condo at Maui Kaanapali Villas. When we decided to buy a condo not much was available at MKV so we looked around the area but came to the conclusion that there is nothing like MKV out there. We love the old Hawaiian feel as well as the quiet, spacious feel at the resort. It is low-density which we really appreciate and you just can't beat that sandy beach and view!

What makes this condo unique

There is not another resort like Maui Kaanapali Villas on Kaanapali Beach. It is low density, only 260 units on 12 acres, and has that old Hawaiian feel you just don't find anywhere else. The pools and beach are never crowded - no need to get out there at 6 am to save a lounge chair! And we have met nothing but nice people there! The boardwalk is great for walking north to a grocery store (about a mile) or south 1 mile to Whaler's Village. There is also a free trolley that picks up at our lobby and takes you around the Kaanapali area.

Highly impressed with the customer serviced received by Susan

  • 5 of 5

The unti was just as described, somewhat close to a noisy street, but overall a great value!

This owner is super responsive and accomodating, I can't say enough about the customer service we have received from Susan. From allowing me to change the arrival date, to finding alternate accomodations when her unit was supposely "under renos", to answering any questions and allowing us to have a late check out - THANK YOU! Bonus: 2 sets of snorkling gear as well as portable folding chairs we were able to use.

I would highly recommend this unit to any singles or couples looking for a central location on Kanaapali Beach.

Owner's Response: We always appreciate such kind words and great reviews of our condo! Maui is such a beautiful place and we love sharing this little piece of paradise with others. Please note: the snorkels sets were left by a previous guest which we do appreciate but those may not always be there for our guests to use. We do keep folding chairs and a cooler available for use.

We love Maui Kaanpali Villas!

  • 5 of 5

We had stayed at MKV before, but the unit we had rented was full when we went to make reservations. As luck would have it, we found this gem! This studio condo is very well stocked! Everything was very clean, and having stayed at a supposed 4 star resort the night before, where there was a thick layer of dust on the bedside table lamps, coming to Susan's super clean condo was a welcome relief! I even pointed out to my husband that the plantation style shutter slats were dust free!

The condo had everything we needed to cook & the bathroom had a huge walk in shower. I did read some review that complained about the lanai and how they felt it was noisy due to highway traffic, however, we sat on the front side of the lanai facing out to the grassy areas, and we had no traffic noise issues. We didn't however sleep with windows open, as we are from WA State and air conditioning was a must for us!

While Kaanpali Villas has a large beautiful swimming pool beachfront, we were very pleased with the proximity to the smaller pool/hot tub, and made a trip there every night.

We enjoyed working with Susan so much, we plan to rent another of her MKV on our next trip to Maui!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for one week. Everything was perfect from start to finish. Susan was quick to respond to every email. Booking and payment went smoothly. Check-in was easy. The room was exactly as pictured & described, except the TV was new (which we never turned on anyway!). Room seems small when you walk in but the space is used so well you never feel like you're in a small space. Full kitchen perfect for our needs. Unit is on the end on its own, so there are windows on both sides making the room nice and bright. Property has well maintained gardens, and a very nice main pool, particularly when compared with neighboring properties. I highly recommend this property! Thanks for everything!

Fantastic stay for small family

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for two weeks at this condo; Susan was wonderful to communicate with. The condo is small but has everything we need, including everything for the beach. The wrap-around lanai was quite unique and you can hear the highway noise if the lanai doors are open, but thanks to central air-conditioning, we just kept them close and enjoyed quiet and pleasant AC. We loved staying there and are very grateful to have the full kitchen, beautiful shower, and everything came as described. Loved the property as well, with the pool and proximity to excellent snorkeling. Thank you, Susan!!

Kaanapali Studio

  • 3 of 5

Was reasonably okay, clean, location at the back was a bit noisy. No electric BBQ on deck as stated, which was a bit of a let down. Management Co. was good. Would recommend for a couple.

Great condo and location

  • 5 of 5

My fiancée and I stayed at Susan's condo for a week and loved every minute of it!

Some highlights:

-The condo is sized well for two people. The Murphy bed is quite large, and the full kitchen is great. There is a Safeway just a few miles down the street in Lahaina, which makes saving money by eating in easy.

-The MKV property is great. I love the location north of Black Rock - it feels much more relaxed than some of resorts a mile south. No compitition for chairs by the pool!

-Lots of great food and shopping is a short car ride away.

We loved our stay and will be back for sure!

Owner's Response: We are grateful for guests who not only enjoy our condo and resort, but also want to return! Maybe for a honeymoon. : ) The wall bed is an actual queen size box springs and mattress and is comfortable. And they are so right, there is no fighting for a lounge either by the pool or looking out over our beautiful beach. Due to our location just north of Black Rock, we are not crowded and have a wide, sandy beach which has so much room for our guests. Aloha!
