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!

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

Amazing Tropical Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We truly loved our 8 night stay at this wonderful condo! We ate many of our meals in the condo, so really appreciated the well stocked kitchen. Beach chairs were a bonus too, and provided comfortable relaxing on many beaches we went to (the beach right out front of the villas was among the best). We really enjoyed having access to the boardwalk that stretched from north to south Kaanapali. It provided great opportunities for walking and running directly from the condo. One morning we walked 1.5 miles along the boardwalk to Starbucks. It was the best Starbucks experience ever, sipping coffee on their patio overlooking the ocean! We also enjoyed hiking the awesome Waihee Ridge Trail on the other side of West Maui, real muddy but the expansive views were totally worth getting a bit dirty. Another highlight of our trip was hiking a ways into the Haleakala crater along the amazing Sliding Sands Trail, although we had to take it slow coming back up as the high altitude made it harder to breathe. We enjoyed snorkeling at Kapalua Beach, Black Rock and Kahekili Beach. After our excursions around the island, it was always so fun to come back to the was perfect in every way! Thank you so much! We hope to come back again someday!

Owner's Response: Aloha Karen! We are actually at the condo now, restocking supplies for our guests. It sounds like you had an active vacation. Howard and I also trend toward physical sports. We've been on the trails you mention, play tennis next door and golf right down the road, and most of all we love snorkeling right outside our door with such easy access from the beach. We look forward to your next vacation. We'll have the beautiful sunrises over the mountains, and sunsets over the ocean ready for your arrival! Mahalo, Barbara and Howard

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!
