We were the first guest to stay in this beautiful villa. I have to say everything is exceed our expectation. The villa has a very nice ocean view from the living room and bedroom. It is clean and the interior is nicely decorated. The service provided by the management company is excellent. Dave is so easy to work with and he makes sure everything is perfect for our stay. We will definitely stay again in this beautiful villa.
We had a terrific two weeks in Maui and Dave made it right. We stayed in two Kapalua Villas during our stay. This unit and another that Dave made available for about one half of our nights. This unit is a very nice unit with a street level entry. It has a very new kitchen and much of the remainder of the unit has been upgraded. Dave contacted us prior to our trip to let us know that there was construction going on in the unit above and it might be noisy for the second week. Dave offered multiple options to us including a full refund. We chose to move to another unit that Dave had available for the second week of our stay. Dave also refunded two nights rent for the inconvenience. The second unit was on the second floor with a great view of the golf course. It was a fully upgraded delight. Thanks Dave!
Dave, the property manager, was very promoted with communications. He even provided grocery stocking service for a nominal fee prior to our arrival. This was convenient since we arrived late. We had stayed in a villa before so we knew how quiet and convenient things are. Having nice beach towels and other amenities were a plus. Great stay!
Very clean, lots of amenities that met our every need, convenient to: grocery, running/walking trails, multiple beaches, "major" highway, shopping, restaurants, etc!!
Incredible vacation!! We bought tons of food when we arrived and one of our favorite things to do was cook and eat on the balcony drinking wine, watching the birds and looking out for whales!!
We spent the entire month of July in the condo and felt home from day one. The brand new kitchen is very well appointed and has everything you could expect at home. The master bedroom was spacious and the king bed was very comfortable. We always ate on the lanai to enjoy the views, which are more spectacular than the photos let imagine. The ocean is a few hundred yards away and every ripple and whitecap is visible. The blue ocean is framed by Cook pines and distant Moloka'i. The colors at sunrise and sunset are spectacular. The condo is a few steps and at the same level as the carport, which is way more comfortable than the upstairs and downstairs units, requiring stairs climbing.
The location of the condo is great as it gives access within a few minutes to half a dozen of the most gorgeous beaches of Maui.
The low density resort was for us a much better option than most of the crowded beach-side resorts, which can be found all the way down to Lahaina.
Dave was very helpful and accommodating.
All in all, this extended stay was a great experience and we can't wait to get back to Maui
Our stay was great! Although we never saw Dave, he made sure to make himself available would there be anything needed from us. He was friendly, polite, and professional. The villa was superb! Fully stocked and Dave even offered to go get groceries for us prior our arrival. Great views, and very comfortable. There was a construction going on, but in all honestly, it did not bother us and the guys doing the remodeling were very considerate and polite. Still, Dave gave us a discount to make up for any inconvenience the construction would place, which was very graceful of him. Overall, we will look into this location next time we come to Maui.
Headed over to Maui for a weekend getaway and this was the perfect base. Property manager met us on arrival and was very nice to show us around and offer advice for places to eat and things to do. Furnishings were perfect, very comfortable for our stay and plenty of kitchen supplies.
Quiet area with some great beaches nearby and a nice running trail, plus plenty of restaurants within walking distance. A shuttle was available but we never needed it. When we did drive, busier areas of Kaanapali and Lahaina were an easy trip.
