Maui. Many meanings are captured by that one word. For some, Maui is their tropical dream vacation, a once-in-a-lifetime experience. For others, Maui is a celebration of milestone events, a wedding, a graduation, an anniversary. For everyone who comes to Maui, it is a high point of their year, and their Maui vacation should be perfect.
Why Kaanapali? Kaanapali was the first resort developed on Maui, and the first destination resort in the United States. Because Kaanapali was the first resort on Maui, they had their pick of beaches, and naturally picked the best one. Kaanapali beach is ranked in the top 10 beaches in the world by many travel magazines.
They defined a destination resort as a resort that contained everything that most people would want for their vacation: hotels, restaurants, a world class golf course, tennis courts, and shops. With a free trolley that travels throughout the resort, many people find that they do not need a rental car, or perhaps rent a car just for a day or two to see some attractions outside the resort. Having so much within the resort and not having to drive to it makes for a very relaxing vacation, and can save a lot of money on a rental car that just sits in the parking lot most days. Rental cars often cost $75-100 or more per day. If you are comparing a stay in Kaanapali to other locations, Kaanapali may initially seem more expensive, but when you consider rental car costs, it becomes cheaper.
If you want to go into the quaint town of Lahaina, it is about a $15 uber ride each way.
If you want to rent a car for a day or two while you are there, they will come to Maui Kaanapali Villas to pick you up and take you back to their office at the Kapalua airport, 5 minutes away, to complete the rental. Major car rental companies include Budget, National, Enterprise, Thrifty, Dollar, Hertz, Avis, and Advantage.
Why a condo hotel? Condo hotels offer two to four times the size of the average hotel room. This suite is four times the area of an average hotel room.
In these difficult times, many people want to limit their restaurant dining. Condos offer a fully equipped kitchen that makes preparing any meals easy. In addition, we have several beautiful barbeque locations that make grilling easy and pleasant.
There are many excellent restaurants in the Kaanapali area, and we eat at them often, but eating out on Maui is expensive compared to the mainland U.S. Breakfasts often run $10-15 per person, lunches the same, and dinners can be in the $30-50 per person range and up in many restaurants. In addition, we find that the food is so rich that after a few days of eating 3 restaurant meals per day we are wanting simpler meals, so we like to eat in our condo as well as in restaurants. We particularly enjoy having coffee and breakfast in our room before we have to get ready to go out. Condo hotels make sense for everybody, but particularly for guests with children.
Why our condos? We offer two beautiful condos to make your Maui vacation delightful. While some features of these two condos are different, they both offer lots of room, luxury and tropical splendor that will make your Maui vacation memorable. Both condos are located on Kaanapali Beach, one of the world's top beaches. The sand is fine and smooth, and there are no stones and rocks. If you are looking for a beach where you can walk in the surf barefoot at sunset, this is the beach you have been looking for.
We use the large, professional management company Aston for our condos. In these difficult times, cleanliness and disinfection are a concern. Aston uses hospital grade cleaning products and upgraded protocols to enhance the safety of you and your family. For further details on Aston's cleaning policies, click here. If you rent through VRBO or another, smaller rental agency, you get whatever cleaning they provide.
Our Oceanfront condo is located steps from the beach and a beautiful pool – perfectly located for those who wish to make the water the central point of their vacation. In season, whales can be seen in the ocean just off the beach, and the lanai and glass walls on the ocean side of the condo show off the magnificent views. You are steps away from walking barefoot on the beach as the waves splash around your feet. Walking or running along the beach is particularly alluring at sunset or sunrise. Younger children delight in building sand castles while older children use boogie-boards. Parents love being able to keep an eye on older children in the pool while sitting on the lanai in the shade with a cool drink. For parents with younger children, the quick and easy access to the condo makes visits to the kiddie pool or beach fun, and when children get tired, the condo is nearby, peaceful, cool and quiet.
Our Treetop condo is located in the treetops – among the palm fronds and songbirds. At this height, there is a nearly constant trade wind which cools the apartment, because of the floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors on the ocean side and the louvered windows on the mountain side. The rustling of the breeze in the palm fronds mimics the sounds of a gentle rain and lulls you to sleep. The birds in the nearby treetops sing to greet you as you awake. You can have a cup of coffee in the morning while taking in the partial ocean view, and have a glass of wine in the evening watching the sun set over the ocean.
