Lahaina Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 2-8)

Far nicer than Gold this Platinum street level condo (no stairs to front door and only 50 steps) in Kapalua's only guest friendly ocean front development offers Spectacular Ocean Views without the brine of the salt. Nearly 180 degrees of unobstructed white-water coastal panorama including views of Molokai and ships passing in the night (or day), the colorful sails of boats and personal yachts and the breeching of whales in season are yours from this strategically perched Kapalua Bay Villa.

Architecturally and luxuriously updated, this abode boasts of unmatched quality and uniqueness in design. Dramatic 2-story living room with 4 sets of lanai doors on the ocean front invites you to enjoy total inside-outside living. State of the art media equipment and kitchen appliances such as Bose, Fisher Paykel and Bosch are included for your pleasure. Two master bedroom suites (one up and one on the main) nicely & ideally accommodate a party of four. The pictures tell the story best. Interestingly, when Bay Villas were originally marketed this unit along with the unit next door were the very first sold, obviously for their superior locations and masterful unobstructed views.

Resort facilities available to you include two championship golf courses, three world class beaches (Kapalua Beach rated # 1 in the world by Conde-nest), two tennis gardens, zip line and a variety of shops. Treat yourself: The new 30000 square foot Kapalua Spa fronts the entrance to Kapalua Villas. To the north and nearby the incomparable Ritz-Carlton hotel offers an additional spa, dining and entertainment. And just to the south lies the recently renovated world famous ocean front Merriaman's Bay Club Restaurant. The resort is within minutes of most of West Maui’s sightseeing as well as the old whaling village of Lahaina.

About Ron Butler

We “discovered” Hawaii 25 years ago and haven’t been able to resist the urge to return and return and return ever since. After visiting all the islands, Maui won our hearts thumbs down. Though we have always been intrigued by West Maui, specifically Kapalua, friends who already owned convinced us that Wailea was where we belonged. Well meaning friends have never been so wrong! Now these friends have moved to mundane places like Palm Springs and this time we didn’t follow suit. Instead, we chose to follow our original inclinations and pursue ownership in a Kapalua condo. First handedly we can now attest: THERE IS NO COMPARISION! The lush greenery and natural beauty of Kapalua is not to be had in South Maui, nor is the sound of breaking waves from the active ocean or the sight of majestic Captain Cook and Norfolk Island pine trees; or, cruise ships fully lighted as they set sail and colorful sailing regattas as they enter Historic Lahaina harbor. But most of all, the opportunity to sit by the hour and watch the whales in season is unsurpassed. Yes, South Maui is a great place but we'll take Kapalua in West Maui any day.

Ron Butler purchased this condo in 2004

Why Ron Butler chose Maui

Maui's claim to be among the most sought after vacation destinations on the planet is unchallenged. But South Maui and West Maui are quite different. If, whether you're playing a round of golf, basking in the sun, or splashing in the blue waters of the Pacific, the sounds of the ocean and the feel of a gentle breeze appeal to you along with Natural Tropical Splendor, West Maui is where you belong.

What makes this condo unique

UNSURPASSED ocean view AND an ocean view from every room. Call me: cell # 402-968-5600 or email me at

Exquisite !!! Vacation in paradise !

  • 5 of 5

Look no further ! You have just found your dream vacation. From the moment you open the front door, you know you have chosen the right spot for your Hawaiian paradise vacation. The ocean views are incredible ! You are literally blinded by the blue Pacific ocean staring straight at you as you enter the Villa. In fact , there are views from every angle and window in the entire villa , from the upstairs master suite to the beautiful living room , kitchen and of course the beautiful decks . The pictures on the website are indeed beautiful, but nothing will compare to what you will see once you step inside the beautiful villa . The decor of the home is beautiful ,very comfortable and laid out perfectly for families or even two couples. Having two master suites and two washer and dryer's in each room is a huge plus with families. The bathrooms and fixtures are beautiful . We especially loved the two showers and the luxurious linens & towels. Attention to detail is an understatement, everything from extra towels, linens,extra kitchen condiments , beach chairs , snorkeling equipment & beach toys were all provided in the villa . You couldn't ask for a better well-stocked and super clean home. The beds were extra comfy & waking up to those views were incredible! The beautiful sitting room off the upstairs master bedroom was ideal for afternoon naps or morning coffee while reading and enjoying the views.

Our family has been coming to Maui for more than 20 years now and we usually stay in the Ridge villas which are also nice but nothing compares to this beautiful Bay Villa. We definitely recommend it and we will be returning here each time we visit the island . Working with the owner Ron was also a major plus. He is so accommodating and provided useful information on restaurants & tips of things to do around the island . Thank you Ron for the use of your beautiful villa. It exceeded our expectations & we will be back!

Another happy family vacation in Paradise !

Perfect Villa in Paradise!!

  • 5 of 5

WOW! says it all! From the moment we walked through the door with nothing but windows separating us from an unobstructed panoramic view of the ocean, the entire experience was totally positive. The accommodations are truly first rate and maintained in a manner which makes it difficult to believe that it’s been rented to others. Two master suites, two laundry areas, a first rate kitchen and the close proximity to one of the world’s greatest beaches as rated by Trip Advisor all contributed to our stay. Must add that Ron was wonderful to work with and gave us very helpful tips on eateries and “things to do.” We will definitely return and we will definitely schedule only when this villa is available.

"Perfect example of a vacation accommodation "

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from our visit to the Kapalua Bay Villa 🌟 with our daughter and granddaughter , the villa is ideal for those wishing to be near the coast and the beach, it is literally minutes away from a glorious snorkaling beach, rock pools and cliff walks. The villa is very well appointed and all the fixtures and fittings are of a high quality and include everything you need for a self catering vacation . The views from the 1st floor dining kitchen with adjacent balcony are breath-taking especially at sunset. The surround sound was marvelous for movie nights.

Exceeded every expectation

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I consider ourselves very particular when it comes to accommodations. The Bay Villas at Kapalua and particularly Ron's villa are beautiful. Ron's villa is decorated with beautiful art, tasteful furnishings and absolutely everything you need to enjoy your time in Maui. The view and ability to open the doors to the Lani and enjoy the sounds and smells of the island make this truly the perfect home. Every finish is high end and every detail well thought out.

Working with Ron from the very beginning was an exceptional experience.

The Kapalua area is so friendly and there are endless activities to accommodate any traveler. The Kapalua Bay Villas offer several pools, a great beach and many restaurants within a short walk. We have stayed in many properties around the world and there are very few I would give 5 stars. This is a 5 star property and will leave you as it has us .... Looking forward to returning next year.

Amazing Bay Villa Condo

  • 5 of 5

This condo is top notch and Ron has thought of everything to make this place a home away from home. From the huge comfy couch in the living room with gorgeous 180 degree views over the water, to the well equipped, modern kitchen, as well as the amazing sound system and the updated TV, this place is 5-star luxury. The condo is an easy walk to one of the world's best beaches and is close to great restaurants like Merriman's and Sensei. Why stay at a hotel when you can get three times the space and the same comfort? This was our second time staying here and we loved it. Working with Ron was a pleasure - he's quick to reply, honest, and helpful.

Another Fabulous stay at Ron's Gorgeous Bay Villas

  • 5 of 5

I was so excited to stay at this condo again. We were unable to book it for our entire trip for Christmas because of late planning on our part. Needless to say I am so thankful that we were in Ron's unit for the last week of our stay. He always has everything set up so nicely. The minute I walked through the front doors I felt like I was home again. You have everything you could ever want in the kitchen to cook with. He always has all of the amenities too. I even managed to use the brown sugar in the pantry to make my boys some yummy home made syrup for their banana french toast. :)

The Whales started to show up a couple of days before we left and they supplied us with many AMAZING breaches and tail slaps to fill our days. You just cannot beat the view and vantage point from this condo. Not to close to the beach and yet not too far away.

I love that you are on the second floor so that even if someone is walking on the path below the condo they do not disturb your view. Of course the views from the 3rd floor are pretty Spectacular. I found my husband sitting at Ron's little desk in the upstairs bedroom several times just staring out the window at the whales. He brought his binoculars this time so he could really see the action.

This condo will not disappoint you! Ron has thought of everything you could ever want or need. He is truly a joy to talk to on the phone and as always very knowledgeable about what he feels you should do while on the island.

My friends said I should write a lousy review so that the condo does not get overbooked.....I just smiled and said "no way".....Ron said I was part of the family. Thanks again Ron for such a Beautiful place to stay in Maui. Mahalo :)
