About Barbara Rubin
Our family has been vacationing at Maui Ka'anapali Villas for over 25 years. Our daughters, Emily and Dori grew up on this beach swimming, 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 Kaanapali
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!

We had a wonderful stay! Barbara's condo is great, and she was very helpful and responsive while setting up the reservation. The condo is not large, but big enough (there were four of us so we had the couch pulled out to a bed the whole time). Very nice to have a full kitchen with cooking supplies and dining plates and utensils. The resort is very welcoming and accommodating. Walk right to the beach, which is amazing. Pool, shuffle board, bbqs...I even had a fabulous massage. We would absolutely stay here again <3
Howard and I are so happy that you enjoyed our Maui condo at the beautiful beachfront Maui Ka'anapali Villas Resort. I take great pride in helping my guests navigate through the VRB0 reservation process, so that their experience will be seamless. We try to anticipate our guests' needs when we stock the condo, so they can just kick back and enjoy their vacation. Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts. We look forward to your next trip back.
A Hui Hou! Barbara & Howard
A wonderful place to stay. Thank you.
Beautiful property with excellent amenities.
The property is well kept and clean. Access to the perfect beach is just beyond the swimming pool and the Castaway Cafe. The property has tiki torches throughout that give you a real Maui experience. We watched the sun set each night from the beach or Castaway Cafe. The property is located within a few miles of Lahaina and the Whalers Village. We had a wonderful experience.
Beach and resort were great!
The beach and resort were great and the location was convenient to Lahania. The unit could use some updating. Shower worked but you could not use the bathtub, and we thought the mattress needed to be replaced. We also were told at check in that the laundry facilities were not working even though we had checked with the owner a few days before our stay to confirm there was one on site. It was nice to have the chairs and umbrella that were provided.
Hello Angie, I'm truly sorry that you and Mark were disappointed with your stay in our Maui condo. We try our very best to fully stock our condo and anticipate our guests' needs. Our condo was remodeled in 2012, with new cabinets, granite kitchen counters, carpet, paint, artwork, and floor-length window shutters. The mattress is only 3 years old, and in 55+ VRBO reviews, I have not had one complaint. I have contacted my on-Island management company, maid service, and head housekeeper about the full-size bathtub. They all report no issues with it, so I am not able to understand your comment. If you had notified me that it was not functioning, I would have scheduled a repair immediately. I apologize about the coin-operated laundry facility being out of commission. This was news to me. I phoned the Resort and learned that the building which houses the laundry is being remodeled. The Resort had not sent me any notification whatsoever. If they had, I would have forwarded you the information, along with a list of nearby laundromats. I trust that you focused on our glorious beach and Resort amenities, and not doing too much laundry. Thank you for your thoughts, Barbara
Beautiful views and easy beach access!!
We loved everything about this resort! The room was plenty of room and had a beautiful view. It was comforting and nice having a concierge and an overview of the island/excursions on our first morning. The easy beach access and boardwalk was so nice! We loved walking in the morning. :) the only complaint we have is that the maid knocked on our door multiple times before our check our time of 11:00am. The first time she knocked we answered and told her to come back in about an hour. 20 minutes later, she walked right in! That's the only complaint I have! Everything else was perfect!
Aloha Ashley, We're so thrilled that you enjoyed your vacation in our Maui condo at Maui Ka'anapali Villas, (MKV). From your description, it sounds like you took advantage of the beach-front setting of the Resort, and the beach boardwalk for strolling. I have spoken to our maid service about what you encountered, and have been guaranteed by management that they have met with the maids to instruct them on proper protocol. Thanks for bringing this to our attention. I trust it will not happen to another guest in the future. We wish you many Maui memories to warm your hearts for years to come! Mahalo, Barbara & Howard
We could not have asked for a better location for our honeymoon! Steps from the beach! The resort supplies all the beach and pool towels, they have amazing poolside service and everything you’ll need. The unit itself is good. We were a bit disappointed that there wasn’t more of a lanai to sit on. It’s very narrow but still nice. From some of the photos it looks like there is a washer and dryer but there isn’t and unfortunately for us, the resort laundry facility was being remodeled while we were there. The beach chairs provided were full of sand and water not cleaned out by the last people to use them. We made sure they were clean for the next guests. Another disappointment was the small cooler that was provided. It had mold and was unusable so we had to buy our own.
Overall this is a great unit and resort with good amenities and a location that is amazing. I would recommend it and possibly stay again although traffic in Lahaina is horrible so we might stay in Kihei next time. Barbara is fantastic to work! Thank you again for an unforgettable vacation!!!
Aloha Michelle, Congratulations on your marriage! It sounds like you had an amazing honeymoon at our Resort. We agree that with the Resort being situated directly on the most pristine beach on Maui, our guests enjoy the convenience of an uncrowded, easy sandy entrance to the warm, tropical water. This is the first that I've learned that the laundry facility is under construction. I have notified management that I was not informed so that I could alert my guests. Thanks for bringing it to my attention. I have also contacted my maid service, which typically does an incredible job. I was also disappointed to learn how you found the beach equipment that we supply for our guests. They have promised to make sure these items are inspected at each cleaning. Mahalo, Barbara & Howard
Our oceanfront resort is located on the best stretch of Ka'anaplai Beach, just 1/2 mile north of Black Rock. We are close to many water-related activities, golf, shopping, luaus, and restaurants, all within 5-10 minutes. The town of Lahaina is a 5 minute drive south.
