About Larry Dykstra

My name is Larry Dykstra and I live in the small town of Dixon, California. I taught elementary school for 37 years in Vacaville, California, and I retired in 2010.

Larry Dykstra purchased this condo in 2013

Why Larry Dykstra chose Maui

I have been coming to Maui for over 20 years, and I have stayed in 50 to 60 different places from Lahaina to Kapalua. The Maui Kaanapali Villas Resort is by far my favorite because of the overall atmosphere, staff, restaurant and bar, and proximity to just about everything the Maui visitor should want or need.

Beautiful property - wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Larry for allowing me the opportunity to stay in your Condo. It was perfect. The view from your fourth floor terrace area was spectacular and the condo was nicely situated to the front desk, concierge, pool and laundry area.

Your condo had all the amenities that were needed, from beach towels to kitchen dodads. Thank you again. Can't wait to return!

Great location, great resort!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in Larry's room in April of 2017, and truly had a wonderful stay. The resort location is hard to beat, being right on Kaanapali Beach -walking distance from many other restaurants. The pool/hot tub area is just what you need and while we were there during non-peak season, we never had any issues finding beach chairs when we wanted them.

Couple of things to note which I just didn't think about before heading to Maui.

1. The sand at Kaanapali beach is not the white sand of the Caribbean, so it gets really hot! It's gorgeous - don't get me wrong, but be prepared for hot sand!

2. Larry's place is exactly what you need, but we were not treated as a part of the resort, with the exception of being able to use the pool/hot tub area. There is no maid service (which was only a big deal for getting clean towels - we ended up doing laundry in the coin-laundry facility they have on-site), Larry provided beach towels which we used because we were told the hotel's beach towels were only for hotel guests, and we were given strict instructions upon check-in, that if we needed anything that wasn't an emergency (plumbing issue, etc.) that it needed to go through Larry, not the hotel.

3. Larry's condo did have everything we needed when it came to cooking which was super helpful! We did breakfast and lunch almost every day in our room, and never had to search for anything.

Overall, it was truly a fantastic stay! Thank you, Larry, for everything!

The Maui Kaanapali Villas Resort is wonderful, beautifully maintained and a great location.

  • 4 of 5

The Unit is very nice, has a great view and lots to offer. The décor is nicely done and, on the whole, well maintained. The exception to this is the bedding for the king size bed, which is less than good. The bottom sheet had a hole in it, was stained and none of the pieces matched, I know that last part is a little picky. When you removed the bedding for washing it was even worse, the mattress cover and pillows (no pillow protectors) were very bad. The two very nice carpets really need to be cleaned. Other than that things were quite clean.

In the information on the site it states that the hotel fee, on arrival is $50, when in fact it is $18 PER DAY, quite a difference.

Owner's Response: I was unaware of these issues. These concerns will be addressed immediately. I sincerely apologize to Ms. Robb for any unpleasant aspects of the condo. I am visiting the unit on 4/3/17 and will upgrade the bed linens.

Great place would recommend to friends or family.

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful stay at Larry's place. Well appointed condo at a gem of a resort. This is our second stay at Aston Maui Kanapali Villas and we will be back for sure. Clean room with comfortable beds for my wife and I and our two boys ages 9 and 12. Nice newer appliances to use for cooking fresh caught Maui Tuna (courtesy of our 12 year old son) The room was also well equipped with two boogie boards, two beach chairs and a cooler that we used during our entire stay. Nice view to enjoy the morning sunrise while sipping local coffee and indulging in local farm fresh fruits. Every day was spent out at the beach either in front of the resort or close by at DT Fleming, Although we did make a day trip to Wailea for a visit to see Santa and take a wild ride on the Fish Pipe (Highly recommended) The beach in front of the resort was as beautiful and un crowded as I remembered, with soft golden sand and a nice easy surf with a sandy bottom this stretch is impossible to beat. A little secret is that this beach boasts one of the best coral reefs for snorkeling just to the south within a 5 min walk along the beach. Truly a Christmas to remember (our stay was 12/23/16 - 12/30/16) Larry was a great communicator and was a pleasure to deal with. Thank you for a great place to enjoy Christmas.

Mele Kalikimaka and Hau 'oli Makahiki Hou!

( Happy New Year) to one and all!

Fantastic property, amazing location

  • 5 of 5

The resort grounds were stunning. Great pool, amazing restaurant on property and the beach was not crowded. Felt very private. Room was just like the photos, no surprises. Great condition, awesome view and lots of space in the unit. Short drive, free trolley ride or walk to Whalers Village with shops and restaurants. Truly a great experience. Hope to get to come back someday!

Great stay with the family in a beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with our two kids and had a fantastic week. The beds were very comfortable and Larry provided plenty of extra bedding for the pullout bed which the kids shared. The kitchen had everything we needed to keep groceries on hand and cook some of our meals at the condo. We did enjoy the food at Castaway Café a few times though. The location and view could not be beat. Just steps from an amazing beach that is perfect for swimming and has a reef that was beautiful for snorkeling. A beautiful place to stay!
