Direct Ocean Front Condo on Famed Ka’anapali Beach!

Many units at Ka’anapali Shores Resort claim to be ocean front. None are as close to the ocean as ground-floor unit 161! The only things separating you from Ka’anapali Beach are floor to ceiling windows and your own private lawn furnished with lounge chairs and outdoor dining table on a covered lanai! Imagine enjoying beautiful unobstructed views of Molokai, Lanai and Hawaiian sunsets all vacation long!

Unit 161 is a 2 bed/ 2 bath, air conditioned unit. It comfortably sleeps 6. The master bedroom has an on-suite bathroom, TV and king bed. The second bedroom is furnished with 2 twin beds. The large sectional in the living room pulls out to accommodate 2 more, when not being used for TV viewing.

The kitchen has new stainless steel appliances and is separated to the living/dining area by an eat-in bar. This non-smoking unit has a new extra large front loading washer/dryer and tile throughout, with carpeting in both bedrooms. Both bathrooms have recently been remodeled. The condo is tastefully decorated in traditional Hawaiian décor.

Ka’anapali Shores Resort really is full service with numerous amenities located on the lush tropically landscaped grounds. With 2 heated pools, 2 hot tubs, tennis courts, bbq area, restaurants, shopping, year-round children’s program, gym and salon you may never need to leave the resort or rent a car! Many other shops and restaurants including a grocery store are located just across the street. Parking is available for $9/day.

Great Condo Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

My family has had the privilege of spending the past 3 years at this location. We fell in love with it the moment we entered the Condo. This beautiful Condo not only has a beach view but has 2 swimming pools within walking distance. As for the Condo this became our home away from home. The Condo is kept immaculate and has all the amenities you could want from the spacious bedrooms to the kitchen and living area. The owners obviously take such pride in the way this property is maintained. They truly want you to experience Maui with everything that makes you feel comfortable and at home. We were able to relax and enjoy every part of our vacation without having to leave and eat out all the time. When you open the curtains for the first time the view of the ocean and beach take your breath away. To know that once you walk out that door you step into paradise. The beach is steps away. You can walk out your lanai, steps away from the sandy white beach to snorkle with turtles within inches of you. When you sit on the Lanai you can honestly sit back and know you have the best seat in Maui! People comment everyday when we are sitting there drinking our coffee in the morning to having our sunset cocktails that we have the best spot! The Condo is centrally located. Minutes up the road takes you to Whalers Village and Lahaina for shopping and restaurants. Being said that this Condo is centrally located there is an abundance of restaurants to choose from close by. I would recommend this Condo to everyone, friends and family. It is the perfect stay. Every year we book more days then the previous. Very difficult to leave and wait another year to come back.

Great Stay, Perfect Location

  • 4 of 5

Real estate is all about location, location, location and this is perfect. Steps away from the beach. Upon first arriving, we actually had concerns the ocean would be too loud to sleep, that's how close you are, but we got used to the ocean sounds. The beds were comfortable and there is air conditioning, which we rarely used. The only thing that may turn you off is the ground floor location and the people walking by. I loved being on the ground floor, and able to just step to the beach with a boogie board, but since this was the prime sunset location, there was always a crowd on the lawn for sunset every evening. We we also missing a patio chair one morning, and I went hunting and found it on the beach. That's how close you are. I'd go back in a heartbeat. There is a strip mall right across the resort with a great pizza place and grocery store. Safeway in Lahaina is cheaper, but this is more convenient. The condo has been mostly updated, with the exception of the bathrooms, but they're clean and functional. Enjoy your stay!

Excellent vacation

  • 5 of 5

Unfortunately we only had a few days stay at this incredible location. Wow! The unit itself was well equipped including the use of boogie boards and a (2 would have been better) beach chair. It was a perfect set up for our two teenagers - their own tv and easy in and out to the pool or beach. I found the unit very quiet - we had moved from a unit that over looked the pool area and although still amazing was noisier. I especially enjoyed my morning coffee on the lanai and watching the whales passing through the channel. Also it is the absolute best location for the sunset - and was also out of the wind which for our particular trip, where it was incredibly windy, made it perfect.

We had no trouble with our booking and appreciated being accommodated for an early access. I found all our correspondence handled quickly and all our questions answered. Thank you Lena!

There is lots to do at the complex from pool time to surfing, diving, boogie boarding, or just beach time. We also managed some exploring around the island and had a great time (Honoloua Bay, Napili, Olivine Pools,Paia)

I also found the grocery store across the street great for everything you need ( or Safeway about 5 mins down the road) and there are some amazing restaurants close by. We did go to the restaurant on the premise a few times (breakfast and dinner) and had no complaints. Food was good and reasonable.

My only negative would be the location of the bbq's - they are about as far away as you can get - back behind the tennis courts. I don't know why they couldn't put in a few more closer to the beach area! Other than that I would definitely recommend this to friends and family.

Great Family Get Away...

  • 5 of 5

Great location, you couldn’t get closer to the beach...walk to grocery store, snorkel rental, and takeout restaurants. Unlike the previous review we found the unit very clean, free of any mildew or mold and the furniture unstained and in good shape. Prior to rental all emails and questions were answered promptly. We had a small issue with the unit on arrival and it was taken care of quickly, the Management team courteous and extremely helpful. As posted previously the kitchen is remodeled the rest of the unit is slightly dated. If you are looking upscale accommodations with a lot of services, pay twice the nightly rate and stay somewhere else. If you are looking for a comfortable unit for a family of four in a great location, a nice beach and a great value for the price….this is it. We would love to stay here again.

Anniversary Trip

  • 3 of 5

Location was good steps from beach and pool. Condo property in general however is in serious need of remodel. Pool tiles missing, pool deck and chairs dirty and pool itself needs to be cleaned much better and each day. We practiced scuba diving in the pool before going into the ocean and there was trash etc floating at the bottom of the pool... Yuck! Actual unit had a remodeled kitchen however the rest of the unit needed work especially the bathrooms. The overall cleanliness was questionable. Master bath had moldy shower curtain and under the bath mat black slime... eww! Having a second bedroom and bath with laundry was nice, don't believe that off set the cleanliness issues however. Couch in main living area very dirty could use a professional cleaning for sure. Overall location was great near shopping and lots of great restaurants and activities. Picutres in listing showed better than the property in real life. Definately will come back to Maui however won't return to this property. Regardless I think with a little elbow grease and some minor cosmetic fixes this unit can be comfortable for a family on a budget. We'll be looking for something more upscale on our next visit. The Westin Villas looked more in keeping with what we're comfortable with. We may also a single family home on the ocean if we can find something with a pool. Love Kaanapali!!

Fantastic Location!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 stayed here March 12-19, 2011. The unit is spacious and well equipped. The location absolutely can't be beat: it is steps to the pool and basically right on the beach. The view is spectacular, and we were lucky enough to have "whale shows" everyday. As people passed by on the boardwalk in front of the unit, we were constantly told "wow, you've got the best place in the resort", and we couldn't agree more. Stay here, you won't be disappointed.

We will defintely be back!
