About Barbara Rubin

Our family has been vacationing at Maui Ka'anapali Villas for more than 21 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. Recently, we had the opportunity to buy a studio condo at MKV. We are 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 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!

We found Paradise in Maui

  • 5 of 5

First and foremost I'd like to thank Barbara for her awesome one on one we got. She is so enjoyable to talk and text too. Answering all of our questions promptly, and emailed us immediately. This is an awesome resort, right on a perfect beach. About the condo, it was fantastic, fully stocked with everything we needed. I can't say enough about it. This is one of our favorite places to stay. Joey and all staff at reception desk was incredible. Thank you for making our vacation the best I can remember.

What a wonderful 6 days in paradise! The property has beautiful grounds, super easy access to the gorgeous beach, the awesome Castaway bar/restaurant right on property, and friendly people. The free, green trolley that runs between the resorts is also so great!

Once people have visited our little secret paradise, they opt to return again and again. We look forward to your next trip to Maui. Mahalo, Barbara and Howard

We had the pleasure of staying at this condo for two weeks. It was a joy to wake up and see the beautiful MKV gardens and ocean. We spent a lot of time relaxing by the pool and grassy area overlooking the beach. The sunsets are amazing!

The description of the condo was accurate, truly reflected the Hawaaian spirit. Barbara was a pleasure to work with, she was very responsive to our questions and provided some good suggestions for things to do. MKV staff is friendly and helpful. Castaways Cafe is a bonus, food was always delicious.

We plan on returning.

Owner's Response: Aloha Denise and Steve, Reading your description of the Resort, pool, and sunsets is making me really excited to return. Howard and I will be there next week celebrating our 39th wedding anniversary. We will be restocking the condo, and making any necessary repairs and updates. Hopefully, the whales will be beginning their visit while we are on Maui. They are always such an added wonderment to experience! Mahalo for Your Thoughts! Barbara and Howard

This is the perfect resort, on the perfect beach. The condo was fantastic and was fully stocked with everything we needed. I can't say enough about it. This is my favourite place to stay.

Barbara was amazing in accommodating us, answering all of our questions promptly, and emailed us immediately regarding an approaching hurricane. She was incredible.

Thank you for making our vacation so perfect!

Owner's Response: Aloha Janine, Life in Paradise got exciting with the hurricane approaching. I hadn't received any notifications from Maui Kaanapali Villas Resort regarding preparations, so I thought it best to contact you to make sure you knew what protective measures to take. Thankfully, the storm passed by without too much harm on Maui's West side. I suppose you took those stories home in addition to the wonderful memories made after things calmed. We look forward to your next trip back. I'll see what I can do about the weather next time. A Hui Hou! Barbara and Howard

What a wonderful week in paradise! The clean and cute condo was spacious and had everything I needed, plus more. I enjoyed the large bathroom, the big comfy bed and the tiny outside patio/lanai--just enough room to sit and look out at the beauty. The property is lovely with beautiful grounds, super easy access to the gorgeous beach, the awesome Castaway bar/restaurant right on property, and friendly people. The orientation the first morning was a good intro to the island if you're looking for things to do during your stay, and the people at MKV are fun and easy to work with. The free, green trolley that runs between the resorts is so great! It will drop you off at Whaler's Village for an easy transfer to the city bus to get to Front Street in Lahaina if you don't have a car or don't feel like driving/parking.

Thank you, Barbara, for working with me on a last minute deal! I'm looking forward to a return trip to Maui, and would love to stay in your studio again!

Well-equipped condo in paradise

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have stayed in the Maui Kaanapali Villas a number of times and this was the best experience we've had for the price! Check in was easy and when we got into the condo it was clear that the owners had thought of everything we would need (beach chairs, boogie boards, etc). We already knew that we loved MKV with its awesome pools and beachfront, but now we've found a go-to condo. We can wait to come back and re-book this condo. In fact, we wish we never left!

Owner's Response: Aloha Acadia, Wow! You said it all! We're so glad you and your husband had such a great time! In keeping our price low, we feel that guests can stretch their budgets to enjoy activities and excursions that they might never have the opportunity to try. We've vacationed at this Resort for over 20 years, and owners did this for us, and we're "paying it forward". A friend once told me that the first thing he does when he returns from a vacation, is to book the next one. Things happen very quickly on VRBO. Let me know when you are ready to return! A Hui Hou! Barbara and Howard
