About the property

Bay Villa, Waterfront, 1 Bedroom, 2 Baths (sleeps 2)

E Komo Mai 'Welcome' to this WATERFRONT one bedroom upper level bay villa with the master bedroom overlooking the ocean!! We are a gated community. Enjoy a dream vacation with this stunning, extensively upgraded and customized oceanfront gold++++ villa; it is a rare gem among the Kapalua Bay Villas. With over 1200 square feet of luxurious living space, this two story townhouse style villa, with extended square footage, showcases expansive oceanfront views due to its amazingly close proximity to the water (you have to see it to believe it - photos just don't do justice). This is the perfect place for honeymooners, anniversaries, first timers to Maui, and everyone returning for new special moments and memories.

This villa has been designed by a well-known designer with island inspired furnishings - it boasts a fabulous custom kitchen with solid cherry cabinetry, gorgeous granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances -- all overlooking the expanded living room with floor to ceiling windows and the breathtaking ocean beyond. There is a full bathroom on each floor, an expanded and oversized master suite with private lanai and jaw-dropping views of the ocean, the white sandy beach surrounded by the staggering beauty of lush landscaping and palm trees at the famed Kapalua Resort. Wake in the morning as the sun rises over the majestic beauty of the West Maui mountains, nestled beside the glistening ocean frontage. Begin your day in the newly designed master bath with an oversized, step-down shower and granite counters -- all with fabulous views of the ocean!!

Enjoy magnificent views of the famous Honolua Bay, the Plantation Golf Course & Clubhouse; watch fishing boats go by, cruise liners, catamarans, and wind surfers too... During the annual whale migration season you'll see these magnificent creatures come up out of the water; it's a marvel and a wonder to behold - right from the comfort of your living room or bedroom. The large and beautiful sea turtles come to a cove that is just in front of the villa. They can be clearly seen using binoculars provided for our guests. Breathtaking!!

There is so much to do and enjoy… several beaches within walking distance, snorkeling, stand up paddle-boarding, many many fabulous restaurants and local fare too, luau's, zip-lining, two golf courses with a shuttle to take you to/from + 2 more courses a short drive away, scuba, fishing, sailing, parasailing, dinner sunset cruises, a pool literally steps away, and the list goes on.

Our villa, with spectacular 'makai and mauka' (ocean and mountain) views, will surpass your expectations; the sunsets you have to see to believe, windows open to the warm and gentle trade winds, the tranquility of the beaches, hearing the surf from your villa - it doesn't get any better than this!!

Why Russ chose Lahaina

The view is truly awe inspiring.

What makes this villa unique

We believe once you arrive here all else will fade away. You'll feel a great sense of serenity as you watch the whales while relaxing from your living room or bedroom. It doesn't get any better than this.

Amazing property, wonderful views and great location. Very laid back and away from it all. We went to the Tournament of Champions and conveniently there was a shuttle to take us to and from. Beaches within walking distance. Napili Market is very close for groceries. There are excellant dining options that are all within walking distance. Russ was great to work with and I highly recommend this property.

This was a beautiful condo with incredible views!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week here..the condo is lovely and in a perfect location with amazing views and easy access to local beaches. We have been to Kaplua Villas many times and this has to be one of our favorite villas that we have stayed in. There is everything you need and it's perfect for a couple! We will be back for sure!

2nd time at same property - DOESN'T GET ANY BETTER

  • 5 of 5

This is my wife and I second stay at this amazing condo on the water. After our first vacation in Kapalua - we just had to come back. Every day we'd walk to either Kapalua beach in front of the Montage or Ironwoods directly in front of the condo. Both about a 5 minute walk from the front door. Waking up and making coffee and sitting looking at the water was no doubt our favorite daily activity. The 1 bedroom is a great size and perfect for any couple. Living room and kitchen downstairs, bedroom upstairs; both with an equally amazing view. I can safely say after 2 times staying in this particular unit, it probably wont be our last...

Great property! Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great property with a great view. Central to all the great beaches and golf. Very laid back and outside of the major tourists zones. Villa is well appointed and has everything you need for an excellent vacation. We loved it!

Beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

The villa is beautiful with top rated decoration. The kitchen has everything that we needed for our stay. The view from the living room and the bed room is stunning. The patio is enclosed with the living room which is a plus for Kapalua area which is a little bit windier than Lahaina. We were able to enjoy the outdoor view regardless of wind, sun or rain. The gated community made we feel more secure. The near by restaurants are excellent. Russ, the owner is very accommodating and easy to communicate with. Thanks Russ for sharing your exquisite home with us.
