Studio Condo, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4

Ka'anapali's finest beachfront setting, with a prime location near shopping and activities. Our fully equipped, ocean view studio condo, A-517 is located on the 5th floor of the Aloha Tower. The Resort is set on 11 acres of exotic tropical gardens, along one of the finest stretches of Ka'anapali Beach, just 1/2 mile north of Black Rock. Swim, snorkel, paddle, or sail directly off the white sand beach in crystal clear turquoise water. Lounge by two adult swimming pools, kiddie pool, or spa. Relax under the trees on the peaceful lawn adjacent to the beach. Spot Humpback whales from shore between November and March. Golf at any of four nearby championship golf courses.

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!

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

Owner's Response: Aloha Karen, We're so pleased that you enjoyed our Maui condo. We agree that it is a perfect location with a great beach, close to shopping, restaurants, and entertainment. The free Green Ka'anapali Trolley makes life so convenient to travel to the large hotels south of Black Rock and not have to worry about parking! Mahalo, Barbara and Howard

Fantastic.

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic location, great price, well stocked, nice unit. From the friendliness of the owner to the unit itself this VRBO exceeded our expectations. It's not often I say that. The grass lounge area next to the pool is right on the beach for easy access. The resturaunt / bar by the water is a great resort service. Kaanapali is a perfect location to explore Maui.

Amazing stay in Maui!!!

  • 5 of 5

I absolutely LOVED my stay at this condo. The location is fantastic and the view from the window (& itty bitty lanai) is gorgeous! The condo is spacious, clean, well equipped with everything you need, has a super comfy bed and is in a lovely resort complex- couldn't have asked for more! The resort pool is awesome and the complex is on the quieter side of Black Rock- which is a bonus! However, it's still a quick free shuttle ride or easy walk into Whaler's Village and the other side of Black Rock. Thank you so much for my brilliant stay in your condo- the only problem was that a week wasn't nearly enough! I would highly recommend this place to anyone who wants to have an amazing and affordable stay in Maui. This condo is the BEST!!!!!!!

Owner's Response: Aloha Christie, It sure sounds like you had a fabulous vacation staying in our Maui home. The view of the ocean is also our favorite feature of the condo. We try to keep our price reasonable and affordable for this spectacular beachfront Resort, so that others can enjoy what we do. We welcome your return, hoping that you will be able to spend more time next visit. Mahalo, Barbara and Howard

Perfect 50th Anniversary

  • 5 of 5

We are so glad we chose this condo to celebrate our 50th anniversary. It was very spacious for a studio, very clean, and looks exactly like the photos. We were surprised how quiet the entire resort area was, considering how many families were there. The amenities were wonderful, also. We ate out a few times, but most of the 2 weeks we were there we ate in, because everything was so handy. We did enjoy eating at Mixed Plate and our favorite, Bubba Gumps. We haven't stopped talking about this trip since we got back home. It was just that great! Thanks Barbara for sharing!

Owner's Response: Aloha Saundra, We hope that your 50th anniversary Maui memories are helping to warm you through these winter months. You captured the best thing about our beach front Resort. It never seems crowded with so many acres of tropically landscaped grounds. We look forward to your next visit. (You don't even need an anniversary to travel to Maui.) Mahalo, Barbara and Howard

Ahhhhh...

  • 5 of 5

Best vacation ever! We were able to spend 10 days in this fabulous condo...such a treat! The condo had everything we needed and we were happy to find beach chairs, a cooler and a couple of boogie boards (which we did not use). I had breakfast on the lanai every morning looking out towards the ocean. We made good use of the grills but also visited Duke's, Castaway, Kimo's and Cool Cat for a few Happy Hour meals. The live music was fun at Duke's and Kimo's. We brought our own snorkels/masks and we snorkeled almost every day on the beach in front of the condo. We booked a snorkeling cruise, but unfortunately weather was bad so it was a bit disappointing....but hey, we were still in Hawaii!! The room was very comfortable and the bed slept great! I also felt it was cleaned really well before our arrival (big deal to me). We would definitely love to come back. Wouldn't change a thing except to bring way less clothing! Lived in our bathing suits. Did a big Costco run upon arrival, which was great. If I could make one suggestion to those of you staying here it would be to purchase a beach umbrella at Costco and then leave it for the next renters. We would have spent way more time on the beach if we had something for shade. Other than that, everything was fabulous and it was the perfect place to spend our 33rd wedding anniversary! Thanks Barbara!!

Owner's Response: Aloha Cristi and Gary! Maui is a great place to celebrate an anniversary. Congratulations on 33 years! "Best Vacation Ever!"...oooooh yeaaaah! We're happy that your expectations were exceeded by the clean, comfortable condo and all of the amenities of the the resort. We try to anticipate our guest's needs. I'm glad you found the beach chairs, boogie boards, and cooler. I'm soooo sorry that you didn't find the beach umbrella. I just had my current guest check to see if it was missing. They found it where we left it... in the closet, hanging in it's green pinstriped carry-bag. It will be there when you return to celebrate you next anniversary! Thanks for all of your comments. They will be very helpful to other guests. Mahalo, Barbara and Howard
