We began coming to Maui 30 years ago! And when we found the Kaanapali Alii it felt like home...WHY???
It didn't take long before we realized the "reasons" it felt so good here at the Alii. Our first discovery was that Kaanapali Beach was ONE of the best beaches in all of Hawaii!! Not only was it a beautiful place, but it provided great surfing, boogie boarding, and, in fact, any water activity one could imagine right out our front door! Our quest to find THE BEST vacation spot was realized.
Our 2 bedroom, 2 bath, 1750 sq. ft. island home is in the closest building to the ocean, a mere 87 ft. from the sand, (one unit back from the oceanfront), with an unobstructed view down the shoreline to Black Rock. Our spacious lanai view is "active" versus "passive", meaning you feel as though you are interacting with the ocean, beach and walkway. Yet you have seclusion and privacy, especially from hotels and restaurants and their unwanted noise. You can watch the white water waves breaking on the sand, while viewing the tikis on our property as well as Black Rock at sunset! On occasion, one can hear the beautiful Hawaiian music from a distant luau.
We recently finished a total remodel, (rated by Classic Resorts as a PREMIERE), so we now have a queen Murphy bed along with the King Master and 2 Doubles in the second bedroom, which means no sleeper sofa!!! We are in the inner courtyard, so the newly remodeled pools and landscaping ALONG with the ocean view is spectacular in every room. We have a 52" Sony in the living room, with upgraded "High Definition" (also in the Master). The second bedroom sports a 27" flat screen, and all TVs have DVR capabilities. Also, added, was 9' wet bar, complete with a temperature controlled wine cooler, so you are ready to catch that gorgeous sunset!
The Alii is conveniently located in the middle of a "boardwalk" linking you either way, north or south, to major hotels with restaurants and shopping. Whaler's Village with boutique stores, await your shopping needs. The 1 1/2 mile beach parallels the resorts, and the uninterrupted distance makes for a soothing stroll in the sand and surf! And what better way to end the day after that stroll? How about a 6 jet-headed water massage in our Master shower?
If you are looking for a place to watch gorgeous sunsets, observe the whales breeching (late Nov.-mid April) right from your own lanai, and/or viewing a rainbow through a "blessing" (how Hawaiians regard those short rain showers!), then our condo is just the right fit, and, you too, will be "hooked" on the true ALOHA!!!

We have vacationed in Hawaii with our family for 30 years and believe we have found the perfect spot for us. We would love to have you share our home and perhaps you will agree!!!

Maui has been voted the best island in the world! Kaanapali Beach is one of the top beaches on Maui. The Kaanapali Alii Resort and Spa, is one of the premier destination resorts on Maui. We are in the closest building to the ocean with unrestricted views of the beach and black rock. Our "active" view is down the beach to black rock, which makes you feel almost like you are interacting with the ocean, beach and walkway right from the lanai! You can watch the waves from every room. The recent pool remodel and new tiki torches sure add to the luscious landscaping. Even the showers are beautiful, when a rainbow erupts from the mist...During the whale season, usually from late November through April, you will spot the whales and their incredible displays from any window! It is spectacular and something you will never forget! The sunsets from our "home" are truly magnificent...Hawaiian style!
Being right on the beach was one of the first requirements for a vacation spot for our family. We are literally steps away from great surfing, boogie boarding, paddle boarding, or even making sand castles! Now we have a great workout room, spa, and even more beautiful grounds to enjoy. We love being able to barbecue and dine outside in the eating area, where there are 2 big screens available for viewing your favorite sport. The "team" at the Alii makes your stay so enjoyable, and adds the perfect Hawaiian "Aloha"!
