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. 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.
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
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.
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 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!
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 balcony...no 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.
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!
This condo was amazing! I was stocked with everything you needed except for food. Very clean and comfortable. Thank you Barbara and family for sharing your property with us. We will definitely be returning. Mahalo
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!
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!
