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!

Perfect, wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

A great accommodation for my wife and I and our two young children. Well stocked with everything we needed, made for a great vacation. Easy close parking, great pools, beautiful landscaped property. This was our first time staying north of Black Rock on Kaanapali Beach, and we really liked it. It’s a little more peaceful and quieter, and there is some nice snorkeling just off shore a little north of the property. We kind of missed being within walking distance of Whalers Village and all the stuff in that area, but there is a free trolley, and the quieter beach is a nice trade off. We will more than likely make this our new go to property when we go to Maui. Highly recommended.

Owner's Response: Our guest has mentioned some of our favorite things about our property. Our beautifully landscaped property is a joy to walk through to observe all the tropical plants. We and so many others love this property as it is quiet and low density, thus a quieter beach. Snorkeling just north of us is great and the trolley runs from 10 am to 10 pm so makes it easy to get to Whaler's Village. We hope you make this your go to property also!

Perfect Location in Maui

  • 5 of 5

Wow - what a nice condo and an amazing location. This location has probably the best view on the MKV property due to the vacant lot across the street. I have stayed at MKV three times and this turned out to be the best unit that I have stayed in. From seeing whales from the lanai to having the unit perfectly maintained with every possibly amenity needed for a month long vacation. The neatest thing about Maui is that it is always different - from the sunsets - to the rainbows - to whale watching - to visiting Haleakala on three occasions - I can't wait to return and would definitely recommend this unit. I also had the pleasure of meeting Susan and Troy and cannot say enough good things on how nice they are and how they wish to share their love of Maui with everyone. Thank You.

Owner's Response: We appreciate such a glowing review. Unfortunately I gave this guest the wrong link for a review so this review is actually for a unit upstairs from this one. The one the guest stayed in has a full on view of the ocean whereas this one has some view of the ocean although there are 3 trees in the way. As they have grown we have more of a view under the trees so it is getting better!

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.

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.
