About the property

Lg 2 Bedroom/2 Bath Luxury Condo- Direct Access To The Pool Is A Definite Bonus

Our 'LUXURY IN THE HEART OF KA'ANAPALI' condominium is owned and managed by the owners, Rod and Debi Conklin. Less than a 10 minute walk to America's #1 voted best beach year after year, Ka'anapali Beach, Enchanting Maui provides our guests w/1635+ square feet of spacious elegance.

We are located in the Ka'anapali Royal Condominiums on the 16th Fairway (K-102) of the world-famous North Royal Ka'anapali Golf Course just north of Lahaina and a 45-minute coastal drive from the Kahului Airport. Our unit is on the ground floor in the K-Building, however, the complex being on a slope, the ground level is actually down a flight of stairs, 17 in all. Unit is not accessible by elevator or wheelchair. Within the unit, there are 3 stairs to the sunken living room and also in the master bedroom. The 2nd bedroom, with no stairs, is on the entry level.

Rest assured that Enchanting Maui's tasteful details provide guests with all the comforts of home. New living room furniture is arriving April 2017. The sectional is gone and 2 beautiful new sofas (not sleepers) have replaced it. New pictures will be added come October as the sofas arrived to late to take them in May. Our beloved red wall is gone but has given the living room a brighter look.

Who doesn't like a spacious Cal King mattress so we've just accommodated ourselves and you as well with one in the Master Bedroom. Sweet Dreams! The master bath includes a granite counter top w/double sinks, tile flooring and a granite and marble 6'X4' walk in shower - it's a beauty! The second bedroom had a face-lift with all new furniture that can suit your needs either as two twin beds or can be set up as a king. Out with the old and in with new mattresses as well. The guest bedroom also has a Castro Convertible Ottoman which makes into a spacious twin bed that guests have said is wonderful. The 2nd ensuite bath includes wall to wall cabinets, granite counter-top, tile shower and flooring throughout. Also added was not to long ago was a new 32' HD TV.

Who wouldn't want to whip up a fabulous meal in the well appointed kitchen with granite counter-top, new cookware, and gadgets galore. In October 2016 we purchased both a refrigerator and range which we installed during our January trip. Purchased in May of 2015 and a great addition to the unit is a new dining room set that now comfortably seats six.

If it's spending time on the water you'll find a bounty of activities to keep you entertained. Deep sea fishing, para-sailing, diving, snorkeling, strolling the beach for that perfect shell or just sitting and taking in the beauty of the ocean and it's rumbling music, there is a beach activity awaiting your arrival.

Looking for more excitement: hike the crater, ride into the East Maui Mountains on horseback, snorkel or kayak one of the many quiet inlets, or take a romantic sunset dinner cruise. There are several zip-line adventures to choose from on Maui. There is so much to see and do on the Valley Isle and it's all yours to discover.

No need to step outside the condo to find ways to start exploring the Valley Isle and all it has to offer. Our in-house binder will give you a run-down of various activities, places to eat, sites to see and places of worship around the island. If you are a golfer, please mention at the Ka'anapali Pro Shop that you are staying at the Royal. Good possibility that they will offer you a discounted rate on the home courses. A Walk-Fit club is open to the public and a great way to play plenty of golf. For a small monthly fee you can walk the South Course beginning at 4pm and get in as many holes before dark as possible. The rate is from the 1st of the month to the end, no discounted rate for starting in the middle of the month.

We prefer to do our own bookings which we have done since 2002. You save money by not paying fees and we build a rapport with our guests long before they arrive in Maui.

Also, VRBO's quoted prices DO NOT reflect special rates we occassionally offer. In order to take advantage of these special rates when advertised, you will need to book directly with me at dctaxi1@yahoo.com.

Please see note under rates for Early Check In or Late Check-Out.

Enchanting Maui is not just a rental condo, it is our home 4+ months a year so the benefits we enjoy from our time spent in beautiful Maui are yours to enjoy as well.

Cleaning is included in the posted rates. We will consider a 6 night rental (no less) however, the cleaning fee of $210.00 will be charged to you. Our minimum stay is 7 nights unless discussed and approved by the owners.

Should you request an early or late check-in/out, the first hour is free. After that, a $25.00 per 2 hour period will be charged. Please indicate this either on the signed contract or by email or text.

About Debi or Rod Conklin

Rod and I both grew up in San Francisco, married and move to the Peninsula where we built our home and raised our two children. In 2010 we moved to the Sacramento area and are enjoying our new life there. As a family we spent our summers in Maui and the Big Island but always found ourselves gravitating back to Maui. Our first year at Ka'anapali Royal was in 1983 when our son was three and we have been enjoying the Royal since then so that must say something. We have enjoyed bringing our kids, then their spouses and now our five granddaughters. In June/July 2016 Maui was our destination and all 10 of us ventured across the Pacific to enjoy Enchanting Maui together. Caitlyn, our oldest is 11, Riley and her cousin Hanna turned 7, Reese 5 and little Rowan turned 2 in late July.

We have traveled throughout Europe several times, and most recently New Zealand with another trip planned in Spring of 2017 but find relaxing in Maui just as rewarding. Rod loves to putter, both on the golf course and in the condo, so upgrading and changes are always happening, for the comfort of ourselves and our guests. I enjoy helping out with the workload or stretching out with a book at oceans' door or by the pool.

Now it's time with all the grand-girls in San Diego and lcoal and traveling to places we haven't been. Just finding time to be at home in El Dorado Hills is a task. I always have to remind myself which way I turn getting out of bed in the middle of the night to find the bathroom.

Debi or Rod Conklin purchased this condo in 2002

Why Debi or Rod Conklin chose Maui

Most of all, the units are spacious and our location in the complex desirable. We have stayed in several complexes over the years but always found ourselves returning to the Royal. It's central location with Lahaina only a 10 minute drive and Whaler's Village directly across the golf course provides easy access to dining, shopping & of course Ka'anapali beach. A new shopping complex arrived in West Maui in 2010 across from the Lahaina Cannery and improvements to the area are continuing. In 2014, both the Outlet Mall in Lahaina and a Target Store in Kahului arrived in Maui! More shopping options!

What makes this condo unique

You won't need to stake out a pool chair hours in advance of your plans to enjoy the pool. Our unit being on the lower level has direct access to the pool from the lanai. We provide non-breakable dinnerware and glasses in case you want to enjoy food or drinks at the pool. Just remember to return them to the unit.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our kids loved everything about it. M ahalo for haviang it ready for kids - what a blessing? You thought of it all - the arrival gifts for us & the kids, the stocked kitchen, extra bedding and pool toys and props. We will remember this December for a long time. We were able to visit the beach, Lahaina, the Aquarium, golf, went on a "Treasure Hunt" with the kids and laid by the pool. What a "home" away from home? The time went by too fast. We enjoyed every minute of it. Much Aloha?

Absolute Stay in Maui!

  • 5 of 5

I've always wanted to write a review of our several stays at VRBO properties over the years but really never got around to it, until now. Folks, if you are going to Maui for any period of time, you must stay at Enchanting Maui! Firstly, the location in Ka'anapali is ideal. You are within an 8 mins walk to two of the nicest beaches (Ka'anapali and Black Rock) on the island, plus the fact that you are a 30 secs. walk away from a large heated pool and even hotter spa on the condo complex. The accommodations provided by Debi & Rod exceeded our expectations with a spacious 1500+ sq. ft two bedroom condo with all the amenities of home and then some. The condo was very clean and well maintained. The Wi-Fi was super fast and you had an extensive list of networks and specialty TV channels. There was plenty of room with our 2 young adult children who travelled with us. We thoroughly enjoyed eating all our meals on the lanai especially during the evening suppers prepared on the BBQ during sunsets. The town of Lahaina is less than 10 mins away by car for your groceries, restaurants and bars. Debi & Rod's attention to detail was very impressive. They made sure we had everything we needed for our stay. We were even provided with discount grocery cards. We especially enjoyed their personalized welcome gifts for us and our kids. Wow, what more can I say. Would absolutely recommend staying at Enchanting Maui and plan to stay here again on our next vacation to Maui. Thank you again Debi & Rod for affording us the priviledge of staying in your home.

Great Condo

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Enchanting Maui. The owners were very responsive from the time we first inquired about the condo until the last day of our vacation. They checked in with us twice during our week at the condo and made sure we had everything we needed. The condo unit was perfect for our family of four (with two teenagers). There was plenty of room, the unit was in great condition, and the location was perfect. The condo is ideally located near the pool and golf course, and it is only a short walk to the beach, restaurants, and shopping. I would highly recommend this condo. Hopefully we will return to Maui again. If we do, we will definitely try to rent Enchanting Maui once again. Thanks for a great vacation!!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Enchanting Maui is the perfect vacation condo! Our family of 4 just returned home after a week-long vacation and are missing it already. The condo was clean, large and convenient. The kitchen had everything we needed for cooking and grilling. We even made waffles one morning. The kitchenware was excellent quality and looked new. My sons, 10 and 13, loved using the boogie boards. They also appreciated the fast WiFi. We walked to the beach, shops and restaurants from the condo. The owners were very organized and accommodating throughout the rental process and our stay. They clearly take excellent care of their property and guests! I highly recommend Enchanting Maui and hope to return someday.

Owner's Response: We so appreciate our guests acknowledging that we went over and above their expectations both in helpfulness during the rental process, in the cleanliness of our unit and the amenities that we provide to everyone. Knowing what makes for an enjoyable stay and one that is not is what we strive to accomplish. In offering our guests many of the amenities of home that we appreciate when we travel gives us the many 5 star ratings we have come to enjoy and are so grateful for receiving.

Awesome Condo and Great Owners!

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying at the Enchanting Maui for a week in July. The owners (Debi and Rod) were very responsive from the minute we made our first inquiry. They called us the day after we arrived to make sure everything was okay and then again on our departure day. As an added touch, the owners even left a small gifts for us and our son.

As for the condo, it was very spacious for our family of three. Each room had it's own bathroom. Included a fully stocked kitchen. Everything was in excellent condition.The location was great. It was a short 5-10 minute walk to the Ka'anapali beaches and Whalers Village shopping. It had everything we needed for our vacation including mini coolers for the day trips, beach towels and chairs and boogie boards. If you walk out the Lanai you are a few steps to the pools complex. Would highly recommend and will definitely be coming back in the future.

Perfectly Enchanting and a rare find!

  • 5 of 5

This is a rare find. Not only are Rod and Debi most gracious and accommodating, but their unit is furnished with top quality everything. No second-hand dishes, pots, pans, furniture or junky towels. Their love and care for this second home is evident in every single thing in it. It is clean, clean, and clean! The location is just across the street from Whaler's Village, and close to several very nice beaches. We prefer this condo to the big, crowded, pricey hotels on the beach as it is homey yet a quick drive to many great beaches. As an example, we swam with several very large sea turtles at the public beach near the post office and enjoyed watching whales while sitting at the public beach by the airport up the road. Good snorkeling can be found everywhere from Kaanapali to Napili. Shopping in Lahaina and whale watching tours are only a 10 minute drive away. Even internet access has been upgraded in the unit in response to guest request. The pool at the condo is very close to the unit as well and is very nice. We have been to Maui over a dozen times and at least the last five have been to Rod and Debi's Enchanting Maui in Unit K102 at the Kaanapali Royal. Thank you Debi and Rod for another great vacation stay!

Whale Watching is Seasonal. The whales start arriving in late October/early November and grace our waters until the end of April. If you're planning your trip during these months, plan on arranging a Whale Watch with the Pacific Whale Foundation. They are excellent and provide a well-INFORMED whale tour. Definitely worth the money.
