About the property

Condo, Studio + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Ka’anapali's finest beachfront setting with a prime location near shopping and activities. Our studio condo, A-317, is located on the third floor of the Aloha Tower and offers a lovely partial ocean view. It is accessible by elevator and has a comfortable King Size Bed and Queen Sofa Sleeper. The fully equipped kitchen has been upgraded with new cabinets, granite counters, new fixtures and lighting, and is well-stocked. Our ocean front resort is set on 11 acres of exotic tropical gardens, along one of the finest stretches of Ka’anapali Beach, just north of Black Rock.

Swim, snorkel, paddle, or sail directly off the white sand beach in warm, crystal-clear turquoise water. Lounge by two adult swimming pools, kiddie pool, or spa, with cocktail and food service. Spot Humpback whales directly from shore between November and March. Golf at any of four nearby championship golf courses. Ride the free trolley to shopping, adjacent hotels for entertainment, restaurants, or luaus.

Enjoy breakfast, lunch, dinner, or Happy Hour at the full service Castaway Restaurant situated beach front. Or simply, sip a glass of wine on our lanai as you watch the sun set after another perfect day in paradise.

About Barbara Rubin

Our family has been vacationing at Maui Ka'anapali Villas for more than 25 years. Our daughters, Emily and Dori grew up on this stretch of beach, swimming, snorkeling, and hunting for beach glass. Our best memories are of the fun we had playing in the water and relaxing at this resort. We are grateful that we had the opportunity to buy a studio condo at MKV. We're excited to share it with you and your family, so that you may also make your own memories at this glorious place in the sun.

Barbara Rubin purchased this condo in 2011

Why Barbara Rubin chose Maui

Maui Ka'anapali Villas is maintained and managed by Aqua-Aston Resorts. Each condo is privately owned, and the owners take great pride in the property. Every detail is considered so that our guests will enjoy their stay at this most beautiful resort.

What makes this condo unique

There is no better beach on Maui as far as our family is concerned. The water is pristine and warm. The clean, white sand offers a gentle entry into the ocean for swimming or snorkeling at the adjacent reef, which stretches 1 1/2 miles north. Walk on the boardwalk or beach, swim, or take the Free Green Ka'anapali Beach Trolley, 1/2 mile south to snorkel at Black Rock.

I’m not sure how to start this other than to say THANK YOU! Thank you for sharing your family’s wonderful condo. Thank you for allowing me to experience a once in a lifetime, joy filled vacation. This place is amazing. The condo is located in a true paradise, filled with broad warm sand beaches, bountiful sunshine and breathtakingly colorful underwater life. The resort is located very close to everything and the free shuttle provides easy access to other local “hot spots.” The resort staff is friendly and the resort grounds are designed for relaxation and enjoyment. Outdoor BBQ’s, fully equipped shuffleboard court, rows of comfortable chaise lounges and the full service Castaway Café beachfront restaurant make this resort a place you won’t want to leave. The condo’s broad sliding doors provide fantastic views of the beautiful surroundings, incredible blue ocean and amazing sunsets. Barbara’s gracious and caring approach to her guest’s comfort truly make you feel you are sharing the family home. She makes every possible effort to insure your visit is both comfortable and memorable. Her feelings show in everything about this condo. From the warm, welcoming interior décor to the many provided amenities, this condo expresses the love she has for this place and invites you to share. I will forever be able to close my eyes and allow my memories to fill me with the sights, sounds, smells and feel of this wondrous place. I too have fallen in love with it. THANK YOU!

GREAT Condo, GREAT Resort, GREAT Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The MKV, and in particular, A-317, are perfect for those who want a comfortable and relaxed vacation. The condo is well-stocked, clean and has a great view of the ocean. Barbara is a joy to work with and is constantly updating her condo for the ultimate experience. MKV is a laid-back, beautifully landscaped resort with two pools/spas and the ocean at your doorstep. Whales abound, so be sure to take binoculars! The Castaway Cafe is good when you just don't want to cook in the condo's full kitchen or leave the property, and there are plenty of restaurants--all the way from take-out to fancy--within a short driving distance. Take advantage of the Aloha Concierge orientation--you're sure to win a discount on an excursion. We've done the Pacific Whale Foundation Lanai snorkel trip two years in a row and it is wonderful. North Ka'anapali is the perfect location, with LaHaina, Kihei & Wailea in one direction and Napili, Kapalua and Ft. Deming State Park in the other. Always plenty to do, but our favorite activity is lounging on the beach or at the pool. Mahalo, Barbara, for another great vacation experience. Until next year...

Beautiful and quiet resort with gorgeous beach

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying in this condo at MKV. The room itself has a kitchen with all the necessary cookware to make your own meals (handy when you're on a budget!) or you can have a great meal at the Castaway Cafe - the restaurant on the property. There is a beautiful pool (1 of 2) that is never crowded. The beach out front is amazing! Our trip was in January - and we saw many humpback whales jumping and splashing in the water not too far offshore. We saw the occasional sea turtle swim past too. There is a free trolley that can you to Whaler's Village for shopping and dining. We took it to the Hyatt to check out the flamingos and penguins - then walked back (about a 40 min walk with kids in tow). On Sat and Sun - drive to Lahaina and check out the artists set up under the Banyan Tree by the old courthouse. We found some beautiful jewelry and art prints that were quite reasonable. There's so much to do in Maui - I would recommend checking out the book "Maui Revealed". The great thing about the Ruben's condo is that there's so much to do on and near the property. We spent the majority of the time snorkeling around Black Rock. Just amazing. We love this place - already have it booked for next year!

Great condo in Maui

  • 5 of 5

Very nice place in Kaanapali! On the second floor with a view of the landscaped area in front of MKV condos and a limited view of the ocean. Very well stocked unit; bathroom supplies, kitchen utensils, bedding supplies, etc. Located in a great laid back section of Kaanapali but close to Black Rock, Whalers Village and the bustling mega hotels. All within walking distance via 'The Beach Walk' or the free Trolley shuttle.

Owner's Response: Aloha Joe, You seem to have maximized all that our Resort and condo has to offer. We try very hard to provide our guests with all that they need, so they don't have to worry about details. Our favorite thing about the condo is our ocean view from the 3rd floor. We're glad that you took advantage of the "Free Green Ka'anapali Trolley" as well as the beautiful Beach Boardwalk to travel both directions to explore. We trust you took home many Maui memories to warm your heart! A Hui Hou! Barbara and Howard
