About Susan

Troy is a commercial beekeeper in CA and works with 1800 hives. Susan is a retired children's pastor. After retiring she was "sucked" into the bee business and now works with Troy. They hope to retire in the next few years so they are able to spend more time in Maui as well as with family and helping with various ministries of their church. They live on 10 acres with their dog, Josie, and miniature donkeys. When they are in Maui they enjoy scuba-diving, hiking, visiting with new friends found at MKV and relaxing on our never-crowded beach.

Susan purchased this condo in 2005

Why Susan chose Lahaina

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved our stay at the Bunch condo. We also enjoyed MKV. Our plans for next year are undecided. We may be going to the Far East at that time.

The Bunches are very nice people! We had a great time, and, of course, we love Maui the best!

Great home away from home.

  • 4 of 5

Lahaina was an amazing experience. It was our first time in Maui as a family, which was the most relaxing property we've come to see. Walking distance to the beach, friendly locals and good eats all around. Definitely worth a trip back. Great for honeymoons and family vacations!

Owner's Response: So many of our guests have remarked about how quiet and relaxing our property is. We love it when our guests feel the same as we do about Maui and MKV.

First visit to Hawaii

  • 5 of 5

But won't be our last! The owners of this property are so nice and more than accomodating. Any questions I had prior to our trip, Susan responded quickly and efficiently and I knew if I had any issues during my visit, she would be quick to respond. Was happy to meet Susan during our stay, very pleasant person! Very nice, clean, well stocked unit. Amazing location, 2 min walk to the best beach in the area, quiet, not crowded and great for snorkeling. Visited the other big resorts and beaches in the area and they were much too crowded. Had a late flight and since the unit was not booked, Susan said we could stay as long as we needed at no extra charge, great service goes a long way!! Unfortunately, a bit too small for our 2 grown teenagers but Susan even recommended another unit for next time. Would definitely stay in this unit again, if we are without the boys and highly recommend it to family and friends. Mahalo Susan!!

Owner's Response: We love to meet our guests if we are also on the property. Many of them have become friends! Many families such as this enjoy our property for the great snorkeling just north of us, the quiet sandy beach in front of our resort and the central location to West Maui. Many wonderful family memories have been made here.

Comfortable unit

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Maui. Our unit we rented was very nice and comfortable. There was an issue with the drain in the tub not draining properly. All in all we enjoyed our stay very much.

Owner's Response: So glad our guests had a comfortable stay. And we hope the drain issue is taken care of!

Walking distance to beach

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time my family and I have stayed at this studio condo - we all love how close and easily accessible the beach is from this studio. The room is equipped with kitchen basics to get you through cooked meals. We think we have one more visit in our future before the boys get to be too old to share a room with their parents .... ; ) Thanks again for a great stay!

Owner's Response: We just love having repeat guests who enjoy our condo just as we do. Maui Kaanapali Villas is a fantastic place to make wonderful family memories and we ourselves have made many. We began coming to MKV in 1990 with our children and became addicted!! We hope each and every one of our guests enjoy our condo as much.

Wonderful Wedding Trip

  • 5 of 5

This was our third stay at the Villas. We loved the room and it is VERY well stocked for beach activities as well as cooking in. I have to say Susan was WONDERFUL. In a VRBO property the most important thing is a good, responsive owner and this property definitely has that to offer. I look forward to returning for a fourth trip to the Villas!

Owner's Response: Thank you to this and every guest who makes such kind comments about me. I try to respond to any contact asap. We are beekeepers so sometimes we are in a location where I have no signal but do respond as quickly as possible. I love helping guests have an enjoyable trip to Maui. I think Maui Kaanapali Villas is one of the very best places to do that!!

Perfect Maui escape

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this fabulous escape for ten days. Property was very clean and everything as described. Additionally, you have the benefits of the greater resort property. A call to maintenance resulted in a very prompt and friendly response. Property was decorated in a manner that made it feel like home. Owners of the property was friendly and easy to work with.
