Maui Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 2-6)

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

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 :)

Best Views in all of the Bay Villas!!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely love Kapalua, and the Bay Villas is the prefect property to stay at. The location really can’t be beat. Walking-distance access to 3 terrific beaches, as well as great sidewalks throughout the resort to enjoy morning walks amongst gorgeous landscaping and scenery. For us, there is never really a need to leave the resort.

We’ve stayed in several units over time, but this was our first stay in this unit. Our experience from start to finish was top notch. The owner, Ron, was incredibly helpful and very responsive to all our inquiries along the way. While we did not have any cause to contact local property management during our stay, I have dealt with Quam Properties on other occasions and can speak highly for them based on my experiences there as well. The next time we travel with more than the two of us, this will absolutely be the unit we stay in!

It is very apparent the owner takes great pride in this unit and maintains it to impeccable standards. It was exceptionally clean and well stocked in every way. There was nothing we lacked in the kitchen and there were lots of little extras provided that a lot of units simply don’t supply - such as ample dish and laundry detergent, hand/body soaps, travel sized shampoos/conditioners, replacement garbage bag liners, extra paper towel and TP. Additionally, the supply of linens was great from kitchen towels to beach and bath towels. There were even beach chairs, an umbrella and cooler.

While we ended up with just 4 of us staying in this unit, we had a total of 10 on the trip with 6 others staying in another unit. When we all wanted to be together to visit, this unit had an amazing amount of seating and easily accommodated the entire group to sit and visit together in comfort.

The views from this unit simply can’t be beat anywhere on the property. Absolutely breathtaking. While the balcony is not deep enough for an outdoor dining set, there are several chairs and side tables and it provides a comfortable place to sit outside if desired. As for “outdoor dining”, you can simply open up the numerous sliding glass doors (I think there were 4 of them) to create a more open air setting while you dine at the dining table inside.

This unit is simply amazing. You will absolutely not be disappointed with your stay here!
