About the property

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 our white sand beach in warm, crystal-clear turquoise water. Lounge by two adult swimming pools, kiddie pool, or spa, with cocktail and food service. Relax in chaises under the trees on the peaceful lawn adjacent to the beach, or grab our beach umbrella and chairs and sink your toes into the sand. Spot Humpback whales directly from shore between November and March. Golf at any of four nearby championship golf courses. Ride the "Free Green Trolley" to shopping and adjacent hotels for entertainment or luaus. Enjoy breakfast, lunch, dinner, or the most important meal of the day, 'Happy Hour', at the full service Castaway Restaurant, situated beachfront. Or, simply, sip a glass of wine on our lanai as you watch the sun set over the ocean after another perfect day in paradise.

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 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!

Wonderful and affordable condo on the best snorkeling beach in Maui

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our 2nd Maui visit, and we stayed in this condo again - that should illustrate just how perfect Barbara's condo is for us. The condo provides all you need and more. The beach chairs and cooler are such a plus. But let's talk about the location...

This beach contains more exciting snorkeling than any excursion trip we've taken. We also explored many beaches on the island, and we always returned to "our" beach because it never disappointed. This past visit held a true treat for us: A huge pod of about 500 dolphins visited us every day between 9 and 10 am. We got to swim with them only about 30 yards from shore. What a gift!

Can't recommend this condo highly enough, and Barbara is so great in correspondence. I just emailed her some of our videos of swimming with the dolphins. She's great; condo's great; beach is great - book it!

Owner's Response: Aloha Andrea! Another exciting Maui vacation for you. Thank you so much for sharing the video of the dolphins swimming directly off of "our" beach. Extraordinary...and you are so right...what a gift!!! Although we can never count on them to abide by our timetables, we can count on our condo to provide a wonderful and well-stocked Maui home where we can wait for them to arrive. We look forward to your return trip. Until then...may Maui memories warm your hearts! Mahalo, Barbara and Howard

Loved it

  • 5 of 5

The unit was well appointed and beautifully decorated. It was very comfortable and affords a beautiful view. The property itself is very quiet and laid back. The best beach on Maui. We loved laying on the lounges ,on the lawn, under the shade of the keave trees, right next to the beach.

Owner's Response: Aloha Jim, Thanks for taking the time to reflect on your visit, and share your thoughts with other guests. I imagine you are back home now, safe and sound, with many Maui memories to warm your hearts. We're thrilled that you enjoyed your stay in our Maui condo. It sounds like you appreciated "the best beach on Maui"! We would definitely agree! Our pristine, white sand beach with such an easy entry is to be envied! Our gorgeous, crystal-blue warm tropical waters are amazing, and to have access to the reef which stretches 1 1/2 miles is a spectacular bonus. We spend all of our time on the shaded lawn you mention adjacent to the sand. Nature was kind to us at our little gem of a Resort. We look forward to your next trip back! A Hui Hou! Barbara & Howard

Best Location On Maui

  • 5 of 5

Barbara, thanks again for sharing your lovely condo. Everything was perfect, as usual. I think this is our tenth trip to Maui and we will be back next year and wouldn't stay anywhere else. The condo is well maintained, very clean and all our beach supplies were provided..MKV is the best place to stay in Kaanapali, perfect swimming and snorkeling beach and not too crowded. Plenty of good dining options within walking distance or short drive to Lahaina, but our favorite place is right out the condo door at the Castaway Cafe (can't beat the ocean view). Every morning we walk south along the beach walk to the Westin for coffee and a croissant and sit by the Koi pond, and in afternoon you could walk north to Dukes for cocktails. Check out Whalers village by the Westin and you will be glad you stayed at MKV, very congested by all those resorts, unlike the paradise feeling at MKV. Barbara, your condo is the best value in Kaanapali, we have stayed in other MKV condos and yours is by far our favorite ( and can't beat the price). Thank you again Barbara

Owner's Response: Aloha! We are thrilled that you had another wonderful Maui vacation in our condo. You described the convenience of the location of our Resort to the larger hotels, restaurants, and shopping south of Black Rock. These are easily accessible by strolling the beach boardwalk, or riding the free green Ka'anapali Trolley. We promise to continue to provide you with all that you have come to expect in our condo. We look forward to your 11th trip back! A Hui Hou! Barbara & Howard

Relaxed island vibe with gorgeous beach!

  • 4 of 5

We were pleasantly surprised with Kanaapili villas! The grounds we're beautiful, the view was good, the people we're friendly, the restaurant was cheap and tasty and the pool and beach area was great! We loved the vibe. The room was just what we needed. The beach was so wonderful, lovely sand and clear warm water with no rocks. We enjoyed the space there was at the beach too, unlike some of the other beaches with the busy hotels. Only downside was how dated the property was but that didn't take away from the experience at all. It exceeded our expectations.
