Please see VRBO/355818 if you are interested in staying on the Big Island of Hawaii.

Kaanapali Beach Club has undergone many extensive renovations and improvements in recent years including: Complete floor to ceiling renovations of all suites, new furniture, washers and dryers on each floor, new fitness center, better Wifi services, new air conditioning, doubled bbq areas, resurfaced pool, new pool heater, and completely renovated the driveway entrance and courtyard and new improvements like a new roof structure are ongoing and planned. All of this adds up to a first class resort!

Kaanapali Beach Club is a fabulous Ocean Front Resort located on the north end of the famous Kaanapali Beach. It is a 3 tower, 12 story high-rise building that is a very unique structure as the center of each tower is open to the atrium/courtyard below. If you are familiar with Embassy Suites, then you have an idea of what to expect as the resort was known at the Embassy Resort at Kaanapali Beach.

The one bedroom suite is over 820 square feet and both the living room and the bedroom take advantage of the fabulous views. The bath is very large and has a private entrance from both the bedroom and the living area so as to make the unit very comfortable for sharing. You can have either a king bed in the bedroom or 2 doubles - your choice. The suite has a sleeper sofa and a very nice rollaway can also be brought up at no extra charge. There is a full kitchen minus the range. (A large electric skillet and/or a crock pot can be bought to your room at no charge) There is a microwave, dishwasher and full size refrigerator and barbeque grills on site. There are beautiful Hawaiian furnishings. The unit is air conditioned. There is a stereo and DVD player in the living room and TVs in both the living room and bedroom. There is now wireless internet throughout the resort.

ONE ACRE POOL with waterfall and waterslide. Separate kiddies pool. Hot Tub.

Kaanapali Beach is located on the west, dry side of Maui and one of the most requested destinations in the world. There are many golf courses nearby as well as restaurants on site and nearby. Plenty of shopping nearby and one shopping center and grocery store is just across the street within easy walking distance. There is great swimming, snorkeling and diving right in front of the resort as well as many other great locations within a short drive. For those of you that want the services of a concierge, their desk is located downstairs in the lobby. ***There is no obligation to attend a timeshare presentation, but if you so choose, there are some free goodies offered to you for attending.

Maid service is provide midweek during your stay at no charge and there are plenty of towels in the room for your needs. If there is anything else you need, the friendly staff is very quick to attend to your needs.


I would like to take just a moment to talk about the fabulous snorkeling in Maui. This doesn't require you to pay for and take a snorkel cruise. There is great snorkeling right out in front of the resort. (Be careful though to heed the flags and read the signs!) The divers take groups out directly in front of the resort most days, but you can snorkel there on your own and there are resident sea turtles that you can see even from the shore if you pay attention. Whether it be out front or within a short walk, or a short drive, there are many locations where you can see a vast variety of sea life besides the sea turtles, including, moray eels, puffer fish, trigger fish, parrot fish, surgeon fish, unicorn fish and on and on and on. Please feel free to ask more if you are interested.

About Gary Bodine

My name is Gary Bodine. I am happy to offer this rental property to you for your enjoyment. We fell in love with Maui the first time we vacationed there and always have stayed in the Kaanapali area. We come back as often as we can usually twice a year. We live in Washington State, so for us, the sun and warm water is what it is all about. We love to take advantage of the great snorkeling in the area!

Gary Bodine purchased this condo in 2006

Why Gary Bodine chose Lahaina

When we first stayed at the Kaanapali Beach Club, we were hooked. Huge suites (formally Embassy Suites Vacation Resort) with the bedroom and living room capitalizing on the views with large lanais.

What makes this condo unique

Great snorkeling nearby, even right in front of the resort. Lots of options for golf and shopping nearby. One acre swimming pool with a water slide and separate pool for the smaller kids. Exercise room onsite and roof top putt-putt golf. Nice bar and grill on site with happy hour 3-5pm daily.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks so much for working with us on the stay...we hope to possible make the trip again next year around the same time period so if your working on filling some time we may be interested.

Thanks again

Excellent hotel

  • 5 of 5

Gary was great to deal with, talked to him on the phone and he always had the right answers. The staff at the hotel were great. Easy check-in at midnight. Room was clean and had a great view. I would recommend this location to anyone and dealing with Gary was easy. Would stay here again on our next trip to Maui. One recommendation is to rent a car, as we seemed to drive some where everyday, to downtown or to a different beach.

Best Stay Ever!!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at KBC on a Friday. When we got in the elevator my husband said "the woman at the desk said you have a great room, are you owners?" My response was "they probably say that to everyone." I was absolutely stunned when I saw our suite, top floor, right in the middle. Best view ever!!! Gary was great. I spoke with him (and emailed a few times) prior to our arrival. He always got right back to me and was really helpful. What a fabulous view, really the best. It really exceeded my expectations! We will definitely be contacting Gary again for another visit. Really the best!!!!!

10 Stars for the owner!

  • 5 of 5

I would rate the Kaanapali Beach Club (KBC) condos five stars and will explain why in a minute. But first I would rate Gary 10 stars! We picked the KBC late in planning, after other family members had their rooms. The short story is, Gary did not have a vacant condo at that time, but after a few days of checking, he found us a place to stay for seven days. When we asked to add three days, he was able to secure the additional days in the same location – and the check-in staff kept us in the same room, without having to pack up and move, the entire 10 days. We did not know Gary prior to this rental, so were happy with the consistency of communication by email and the friendliness of someone who did not know us. He made an extra effort to make our vacation great. We always felt informed and received confirmation emails and paperwork right away. We checked in easily at KBC when we arrived.

The things we liked best about KBC and Gary’s vrbo were: the fantastic view of the ocean and surrounding island(s) from the balcony. We were on the 11th floor. We ate breakfast on the balcony and had afternoon drinks there, too, listening to the birds, watching the trees blow in the wind and photographing the multiple blues of the ocean, colorful rainbows and beautiful sunsets. The 1 bedroom condo was recently redecorated with new tile, carpeting, furniture & appliances. We had free internet daily, free parking (one of the people in our party of eight needed handicapped parking and it was available 90% of the time, right near the door,) maid service twice was quick and friendly. The washer and dryer on the same floor were close by and available all the time.

Elsewhere in the KBC, we ate breakfast in the large downstairs sunroom located right on the grassy beach area. We had dinner at the outdoor dining area by the pool with local musicians. The food and atmosphere at both were great. If we didn’t want to drive, we stayed at the KBC for food and entertainment. We used the outside BBQ grills for dinner one evening and noticed a lot of people used them as a family & friends gathering area.

We walked to local art galleries, the Farmer’s Market, a Natural Foods Store and coffee shop in a residential area nearby. We also walked in the opposite direction along the beach walk beside the ocean, past golf courses and through other timeshares and condos to the Whalers Village for lunch & dinner. We could walk or drive everywhere from the KBC location. The service staff at the desk

The best!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time I've booked through Gary and stayed at KBC, the rooms are large, immaculate and the view is wonderful. The pool is by far the best on the Island, the booking was pleasant, the owner contacted me within one day and sent a confirmation within the hour. I will not stay anywhere but KBC and not book with anyone but Gary. Can't wait to go back!

Terrifically predictable

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at the KBCR for over 20 years ( back when it was Embassy ). Many of the perks, free breakfast and cocktails, we loved have gone away but the resort as a whole remains wonderful.

I would still not recommend staying in the rooms not renovated. They are working from the 12th floor down and are currently on the 7th and 8th. They are tearing up the main drive about mid-April 2013 for much needed repairs.

Great trip. Great destination.
