Everything was Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at John & Sherry’s place was absolutely perfect! There were 4 of us in our group … me, my husband & our 2 girls (13 & 14 yrs old). There’s so much to say, but here are a few highlights:

- The condo was meticulously clean!! The floors & counters inside the house were literally sparkling when we entered. Even the floor of the lanai was spotless! This was absolutely the cleanest place we have ever stayed … we’ve stayed in 5-star hotels, other vrbo properties, other professionally managed condos, but this was by far the cleanest!

- The view was amazing! The pictures don’t adequately reflect how gorgeous the view is from the condo. It was so easy to wake up to see the Maui sunrise, the golf course & palm trees in the foreground, and the blue ocean & mountains in the background. The ocean view was truly an ocean view; no need to twist or turn your body in a certain way … it was right there in front of you!

- The condo was very nicely furnished w/ high-end furnishings & appliances. The decor was professional, warm & tropical. Everything was modern & updated. All high-quality.

- The beds/mattresses were very comfortable. Not worn, not sagging, not too hard, not too soft. It felt new. The bedding, linens & towels were of high quality, too. Even all the beach towels were of very high quality.

- We had control of the ceiling fans, a/c, and refrigerator temperature. Nice to be able to adjust everything to our comfort level. Perfect!

- Location cannot be beat. Parking was right outside your door. Kahekili Beach was right across the street, Whalers Village just a couple of minutes away, and Lahaina, Honokowai, Napili & Kapalua a very short drive away. Kaanapali Plantation condos are very centrally located to all of Maui’s attractions. It’s very close to the “action” when you want it, but then you can easily go back to your condo for a little peace & quiet. Very easy drive to anywhere on Maui.

- Kaanapali Plantation was beautiful & grounds were very well-kept. There was a pool, tennis courts and a BBQ area that were very nice & clean.

- Condo stocked with everything you need including coffee & wine!

- Owners are wonderful! Sherry was very responsive & gracious. Great communication. Easy to deal with & pleasant in every way.

I’m sure I’m forgetting to mention many other things, but suffice it to say everything was absolutely perfect. We loved staying here & we wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again. Thanks so much, Sherry & John. Aloha and Mahalo! =)

John and Sherry clearly put a lot of thought into making sure that their guests are comfortable in this newly renovated and carefully cleaned and maintained townhome. It's well-stocked with kitchen and dining equipment as well as bath and laundry needs. Parking is just outside the front door and the views are fantastic. The location is great - it's quiet but just minutes from anywhere in Ka'anapali.

We ended up spending more time than expected "at home" here while in Maui, but not a minute of it was regretted!

Amazing Rental- A True Home Away From Home!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful, warm, relaxing place to stay in Maui! John and Sherry have a beautifully decorated vacation home in a great location. It's just minutes from the wonderful Kaanapali beach, and a short drive to downtown Lahaina which was filled with great shops and restaurants. The view from the house was beautiful. The peaceful mornings and evenings were really a highlight for us. We have young twins, but even they enjoy the beauty and tranquility of being in Hawaii. This was a true plus for our family.

Communication with Sherry was fantastic! She was amazing to deal with and was so gracious about everything. Even her cleaning lady left a note of welcome for my family! The house is well stocked with beach gear, kitchen needs such as pots & pans, spices, laundry detergent, etc. We felt so at home & comfortable here.

This was our first visit to Maui and we feel like we hit the jackpot by staying in John & Sherry's home. We had an excellent trip. We are so glad we found this rental & we hope to be able to visit again soon!

Perfect Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

Spacious, welcoming, quiet getaway. Outstanding views from the comfortable deck area!

The interior is warm and welcoming, yet easy to live in-lots of room and spaces to sit!

Well-provisioned with quality cooking items, condiments and paper goods.

The owner was very helpful with rental details and questions. This condo is just minutes

from a great beach (Just down the hill!) and the main road to Lahaina, shopping, and other parts

of the island.

This is, without a doubt, the best place to stay in Maui!

BEST home away from home EVER.

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed in many different places on Maui - and Kauai - but John and Sherry's lovely home tops them all for us. We loved everything from the view to the beautifully appointed interior, to the easy walk down the road to the beach. We LOVED the quiet, peaceful mornings and evenings. We're easily close enough to the "action" and the ocean activities to have all the fun we can handle, then come home to this beautiful serenity. I, personally, was in my element: one of my favorite locations on Earth surrounded by the intoxicating aroma of my beloved Plumeria.

We had everything here we could have needed to have a fantastic vacation! I just can't say enough about this place! We've already reserved our time for next year!! Can't wait!

Best Family Vacation We've Ever Had!!

  • 5 of 5

We really hated leaving this beautiful home away from home. It was an ideal location for our family of 5. The condo itself is absolutely beautiful. Sherry and John have done a fantastic job of renovating and decorating the space to make you feel as though you are staying in a 5 star resort. Even before going there Sherry was so helpful and friendly answering any questions that we had and letting us know all about the property. Having a fully equipped kitchen made our stay very comfortable and economical. We were able to prepare our own meals at our convenience and pack lunches to take along on excursions. Having a lot of staples provided for us (spices, oil, condiments, etc.) made it simple to use familiar recipes without having to purchase every single ingredient. Having a washer and dryer right in the unit was a huge convenience, as was having laundry detergent provided for us.

In the evenings we had our dinners on the lanai listening to the cicadas and watching the geckos who came to visit most nights. The sleeping arrangements were very comfortable with plenty of room for us and our 3 teenage children.

At first I was a little worried about the location since it was not right on the beach but after being there a couple days we realized we really liked being off the beaten track as it was so peaceful and quiet in the community. We were very close to Kaanapali beach and found it very easy to pack up things and drive down to it. There is lots to see and do in the area but also everything is close on the island. When I arrived I found that Sherry and John had a copy of the same guide book that I had purchased before coming called "Maui Revealed". It is a fantastic book that gives lots of tips about things you can see and do and gives directions to a lot of sites that are not commonly known to every tourist but are definitely worth seeing.

We are definitely hoping to come back someday to stay at this beautiful property and experience all the things we didn't have time for on our first visit!
