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 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.

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!

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.

Owner's Response: We think these guests have described a trip to Maui perfectly - a fabulous escape! And we appreciate these guests describing our condo as such also. Our condo has a new dining set and living area set and we're grateful these guests felt at home. We hope every one of our guests enjoy their stay this much!

Owner's Response: We always want to have our guests enjoy our property. We are very glad these guests enjoyed their stay. We recently bought new living and dining furniture and bedspreads for this condo. Painting was also done in the bathroom. Hopefully we will have some new pictures of the unit soon to show our new updated look. Aloha!

We had similar issues as a prior review. I'm not sure the maintenance company and/or cleaning people are doing a good job. last thing I want to do when I go on vacation is have to deal with having to deal with maintenance to fix items. The toilet paper bar kept falling off, the light in the bathroom had a ring of deadbugs around it and there was a lot of sand/debris that we had to immediately sweep up ourselves upon check-in.

Pros: the resort is great, owners were very responsive/helpful during the renting process, plenty of kitchen items, great peek a boo ocean view during the day. If you are the type of person (like us) that spends most of the time out of the room then this might be a decent budget option for you as the beach and on-site facilities are good.

Cons: lack of privacy on the lanai from the other units. Don't really want to sit out there, road noise is also a factor as it is next to a road, we ended up having to buy dishwashing detergent and some other household items that typically are part of a week long stay, bathroom feels dark/dingy.

Owner's Response: As an owner I am very disappointed that my guests had such an experience. We expect our condo to be perfectly clean and ready for them to have a wonderful time. No guest should come in and have to clean, buy soap or fix anything. I have spoken with my property management company and they will be keeping an eye on these issues as well as the general cleanliness of our unit. I must say the issues found in our condo are not the norm for them. Anytime these issues come up I hope our guests will call me or our property management company to take care of it immediately. As I never want this kind of review or experience for my guest I have been in contact with them and hopefully resolved the issues.
