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!

Excellent location on Kaanapali Beach! This room is spacious, clean and comfortable. The Villas are a safe and beautiful place to stay. This unit has a fully equipped kitchen and the room has a great decor. Loved it!

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.

The outside property was beautiful and well maintained.

  • 3 of 5

The studio we rented was okay. It was a downstairs unit next to the street so it was noisey. The inside was fair. The floors needed a good cleaning. The walls and baseboards needed painting. The bedspread also needed to be replaced.

Overall, we have enjoyed our many stays at MKV but this one will be our last visit. The front counter staff was not very pleasant and helpful we we checked in once they realized we had booked through a third party.

Owner's Response: Obviously I am very disappointed to hear that our guest did not have the most perfect vacation in our unit. I have addressed the floor and bedspread issues with my cleaning company and will contact someone to paint immediately. I appreciate our guests honesty and always hope in the event of something like this they would contact me or my property management company immediately so we can hopefully improve their stay. A stay in Maui should never be marred by such things but be one that is carefree and totally enjoyable. Hopefully this is behind us and that will be the case for our future guests. Aloha!

Badly in need of renovation

  • 1 of 5

I shared with the owner the problems with cleaning and maintenance services, the plumbing issues and the lack of efficient pest control. beyond that, this unit is not in a good location within the resort, resulting in noisy surroundings.

Owner's Response: I am very sorry this guest did not have an enjoyable experience. Perhaps even after viewing pictures online something different was expected. Unfortunately I was unable to help as I wasn't contacted until the day before check out. My property management company did come in with supplies that were requested but I was not told about that. As far as cleanliness, I am very surprised as I never have had a complaint in this regard. We do have regular monthly spraying for pests and if I had known I could have requested spot spraying that day. I certainly hope this guest will enjoy Maui and our property at another time.

Relaxing and a great value!

  • 5 of 5

Nice peek-a-boo view of the ocean....had everything we needed in the condo. Very quiet, nice to be able to sit out on the lanai with our coffee and look at the ocean. Great place to stay...especially if you do not need the loud party atmosphere that is prevalent at some of the other resorts.

Owner's Response: Aahhh, that view! It is so calming to enjoy a cool drink and watch a sunset or just the movement of the ocean. Just reading this review makes us long to be there! We are grateful our guests are able to enjoy a relaxing vacation.
