About Barbara Rubin

Our family has been vacationing at Maui Ka'anapali Villas for over 21 years. Our daughters, Emily and Dori grew up on this beach snorkeling and hunting for beach glass. Our best vacation memories are of days spent here. We feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity to buy our condo, and we look forward to sharing our joy with you.

Barbara Rubin purchased this condo in 2012

Why Barbara Rubin chose Maui

We have loved this resort property for many years. The beach is pristine and uncrowded, and the water is crystal clear and warm. We boast the best snorkeling reef on Maui which stretches 1 1/2 mile north. Our grounds feature 11 acres of tropical landscaping offering a spacious feeling of low density living.

What makes this condo unique

Growing up in Southern California, we always loved playing in the ocean. We fell in love with our resort the first time we visited. When we arrive, we kick our shoes off, don our swimsuits, grab our snorkels, and away into the sea we go!

MKV Happiness

  • 5 of 5

Hello Barbara and Howard, Our stay in your MKV studio was wonderful! The unit has a great view and was really comfortable for the two of us. MKV is such a relaxing and peaceful complex with an excellent location on Maui. It was awesome to be able to walk right out of the complex on to one of Maui's best snorkeling areas! The pool and hot tub were heavenly to come back to after some great snorkeling. We will be back!

Calming Spacious Studio: Our Maui Month of Marvelous!

  • 5 of 5

Dear Barbara and Howard,

We enjoyed our month of October 2016 visit so much in your lovely decorated and comfortable MKV studio!

As you know, we were also in your space for the month of August 2016 and were looking forward to returning. We appreciate your attention to details in stocking the kitchen with spices and the new pans you brought over, as well as the thoughtful shampoo and conditioner in the large containers when we ran out of ours. The blue wallpaper seemed much like a water cave and was very calming. Even the bathroom was pleasing with the large dressing area with double sinks. We loved eating in the dining area to the gorgeous day and sunset ocean views. Your studio is one of the only ones, and we have stayed in many there, that had enough room for a living room area, couch, table and chair. This made it possible for my son and his family to comfortably visit in August and gave me precious space to read and work on my laptop writing books when the Maui Muse stormed my brain late into the early morning when my husband was asleep. I was even able to complete and publish one during our stay!

Truly, for an entire month, we felt as if we were home. We love the Maui Kai Villas for so many reasons, among them the tropical grounds, Mai Tai parties, free coffee and tea downstairs every morning, the Castaways with live music several evenings a week , close to the Royal Lahaina Tennis Ranch, but for me it was especially blissful enjoying the most spectacular beach in Maui. I felt free ensconced in this beautiful crescent beach with golden sands so flat it made walking on the beach a joyful leisure activity of its own merit. I couldn't get enough of soaking up sun, watching turtles, snorkeling, frolicking and exercising in the warm, gentle ocean that I communed with every morning and then again at sunset.

We are so at home in Maui that we no longer run around the island sightseeing with the multitudes of others doing all the many activities offered. That wasn't the purpose of this trip. This trip was to just be one with the beach, sun, and ocean (and 6 days a week of tennis for my husband) to the point we were certain, as we passed the time in your idyllic spot of paradise, that we would prefer to never return to our actual home.

It was great to meet you when you were there in October. Mahalo again for creating the perfect Maui ambiance for our trip!

Owner's Response: Aloha Robin and David, We also loved meeting you and spending time either at dinner, floating aimlessly in our warm, still ocean water, and on the tennis courts next door. You truly enjoyed all of the simple, relaxing pleasures our resort has to offer. We're so glad you felt "at home", as this is our aim. We look forward to visiting you in your newly acquired Maui home. Until then...Warmest Aloha! Barbara & Howard

Quaint!

  • 4 of 5

This is in a great location, we enjoyed daily walks down to Whalers Village and watching the most amazing sunsets! The sunsets are probably the best i've ever seen in any hemisphere! We enjoyed the amenities - beach chairs and parasol which is very generous of the owner to leave behind. We shopped at Safeway and enjoyed a lunch or dinner at home every day to avoid the temptation of hula pie! Thanks for having us Barbara!

Owner's Response: Aloha Roz, Thanks for sharing your thoughts about the Resort and our Maui home. The spectacular sunsets are one of our very favorite features about our location. We can either enjoy them sitting beach-side, or watch the amazing colors set over the ocean while sitting on our lanai, sipping a glass of wine. A truly amazing gift of nature! We're glad to know that you appreciated our effort of stocking the condo with every detail that you might desire...including the beach chairs and beach umbrella, ("parasol"), ice chest, and boogie boards. We want our guests to feel "at home", and not need to purchase extra items. We hope that you will fill your days with warm Maui memories! Mahalo, Barbara and Howard

We cannot thank Barbara enough for opening her home up to us yet again. Ka'anapali really is a little piece of heaven. We look forward to returning again soon.

Maui Kaanapali Villas Quiet

  • 3 of 5

If your looking for a quiet place this is one to stay at. They have a great beach and cafe near the pool and free wifi all around the resort. If you are younger be warned everything is quiet between 10pm-7am and no one is around.

Be warned we did pay $180 for the week of the cleaning fee and was only cleaned once at the end of our stay for a resort. I guess the trick you can do is rebook every day and have the cleaning person come by if need be. The deck is very small only a small person can use it.

Owner's Response: Aloha Brad, A quiet atmosphere is exactly what my guests are looking for to enjoy their relaxing Maui vacations. I agree that our beach is the best Maui has to offer, and that having the on-site, full-service Castaway Cafe is a huge benefit. The "Free Green Ka'anapali Trolley" transports guests looking for the experience of the entertainment, restaurants, and shopping at the larger hotels south of Black Rock. Or, a short 7-minute drive to Lahaina fills the bill for an active night life. Apparently, I need to explain the fees for cleaning. First of all, you did not pay $180. You paid $165 for the condo to be cleaned before your arrival and after your departure. As your signed contract stated, daily maid service and linen changes could be arranged at an additional charge. I choose to keep my nightly rate at "rock-bottom". If I were to double or triple that rate, I would be able to include these additional services. As it is, my maid company sets the cleaning fees, and I pass the those charges on to my guests. Effective June 1, 2016, my maid service has increased their fees, and in the future, I will be charging the price you thought that you had paid. I appreciate your comments. Mahalo, Barbara
