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!

Lovely condo, beautiful views

Can't beat MKV. We come every year and Barbara's condo 517 was the perfect place to launch our relaxing stay. Would choose this room again in a heartbeat. Thanks so much!

Great apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We were so lucky to find your apartment! Thank you. We had a fabulous time. The apartment was comfortable. We had everything available (shampoo, bogy board, cooler, beach chairs.....) You can see the ocean from the room. The location probably the best. Nice beach, nearby snorkeling reef. I hope we can come back one day!

A hidden gem in Kaanapali

  • 5 of 5

This was our home for 15 nights (December 23, 2016 - January 7, 2017) and it was hard to leave. Nice view of the ocean from the balcony although we didn't spend a lot of time on the reason to since the ocean is just a short walk. Property was very well maintained, well lit and clean.

The condo was well stocked (shampoo, paper towels, spices, teas, towels, dish soap, 2 beach chairs, umbrella, cooler, etc.) We didn't use the kitchen much as we ate out just about every day. The 2 beach chairs and cooler really came in handy. Great that we didn't have to rent the beach chairs. Lots of restaurants and shops were close by. Times Supermarket was a few minutes away and Lahaina was less than 10 minutes away. The Kaanapali Trolley also stops here.

Parking at the condo wasn't a problem, free coffee and tea in the lobby every morning from 6 am - 9 am. There's also a little library just off the lobby with books to take out during your stay. There's a restaurant on site but didn't eat here during our stay. The building that we were in had 2 bbq grills for those who wants to do some bbq-ing during your stay. The bbq grill is cleaned daily by the resort staff.

Owner was also friendly and pleasant to deal with. Emails were answered promptly.

The next time we go back to Maui, we would definitely stay here again.

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!
