Our large, 1100 square foot, ground-floor, ocean view condominium is spacious for 2 adults, and comfortable with 2 young children. It is in walking distance to three white sand beaches, including 'Best Beach' at Kapalua Bay. The lanai opens up to landscaped lawn giving more 'outdoor living space.' Watch the sunset next to Molokai from the spacious lanai. The wall of windows in the living area brings the outdoors in! You can eat every meal on the protected lanai--no wind! This is a unique feature to our villa. Other condos and buildings can be too windy to eat on the lanai, but ours is great for al fresco dining! The tile in the living and dining rooms keeps the indoors cool, as well as the passive cooling from the trade winds when the louver windows are open.
The Bedroom has a small garden/ocean view lanai. The carpeting in the bedroom matches the decor and is very cushy on the feet. There is a Cal-King bed with 3' memory foam on top of the adjustable mattress...pick the firmness to your comfort level. The original artwork in the bedroom has island themes that is both soothing and interesting to look at.
The fully-equipped, updated kitchen has all appliances needed, from waffle iron to juice extractor, with a large pantry for groceries. The huge bathroom has a sunken tub, wall safe, large closet, iron and ironing board, as well as a small size hair blow-dryer. Beach towels are provided for easy packing.
Our collection of guide books are there to help make your trip easier to plan once you are there. There are also beautiful 'coffee table' books highlighting Maui and the other Hawaiian Islands, as well as the Tahitian Islands and other islands around the world!
Two Championship Golf Courses are located in the Kapalua Resort Community. There are two tennis courts outside our door that are free to play on. The great shops and restaurants within the Kapalua Resort Community make it so you never have to leave the area. There are three newly-refurbished pools to choose from on the property, with BBQ kitchens, restrooms and showers. Watch the Hyundai Tournament of Champions (formally the Mercedes Benz Championship) and all sporting events on the new Sony 46' tv! Walking and hiking trails are throughout Kapalua. The Kapalua Activity Center has a Concierge who can arrange activities, make dinner reservations, etc. Walk the trails at the old Village Golf Course and find more golf balls than you can imagine (check in at the Kapalua Logo Shop). Hike the new trails at the Maunalei Arboretum and see what grows in the rainforest (pick up the shuttle at the Adventure Center--check schedules).
The historic Honolua Store underwent complete remodeling to offer more dining choices from the new kitchen and deli, serving breakfast, lunch and light dinner fare.
The owner, Lisa Gannon, is certified by the Hawaii Visitor and Convention Bureau as an Expert Level Hawaii Destination Specialist. 'If my condo is not available for your dates, I will try to find alternate accommodations for you!'
'We visit our villa as often as possible throughout the year, maintaining it and giving it the love and attention you would expect to find in a luxury destination like Kapalua. The grounds of the Kapalua Bay Villas are fabulous, with picture-taking opportunities throughout the property. Read the reviews and visit our 'Kapalua Sunset' villa yourself. This will be your home-away-from-home!!'

About the owner: We came to Maui over 25 years ago on our honeymoon and knew this would be the place to call home. We've been on all of the islands and love Maui best, especially Kapalua. Lisa is a Certified Hawaii Destination Specialist and has been in the tourism industry for 20 years. If our condo isn't available, Lisa will find you another one. Peter loves to golf, especially in Kapalua!! Snorkeling and SCUBA diving are hobbies we both enjoy.
Why the Owner Chose Kapalua Bay Villas: Kapalua is a World Class vacation Destination Resort Community. Known primarily for the Championship golf courses, it also offers an ambiance not found anywhere else on the island. Being able to walk to various beaches is a huge attraction. The Kapalua Bay Villas are an ocean front property with fantastic views in all directions!
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: 'Kapalua Sunset' is located in a building that makes the lanai protected from the wind. You can eat every meal on the lanai...this is VERY unique to our condo. With the view of Molokai across the channel and large, green lawn...this is paradise!
The Coastal Trail along Kapalua Bay and boardwalk along Oneloa Bay (aka 'Ironwoods Beach') are new and wonderful. Each day there's something else to see while walking the trails...whale watching is wonderful! The trail system makes it easy to get from one beach to another. The walking trails on what used to be the Village Golf Course are great, too, for exercise as well as seeing beautiful vistas in the area. The complimentary Kapalua Shuttle makes it very easy to get around the Resort. It picks up at the condo and transports anywhere within Kapalua...this is great for eating out, golfing and getting to the beaches.
'Kapalua Sunset' is unique in itself in that we collected the books, artwork, etc. over 25+ years. Our personalities and love for the area is shown in the decor...unlike a hotel-style condo that looks the same as the next one. Spending time at our villa and maintaining it throughout the year provides our guests with the comfort of knowing 'real' people care about their vacation experience.
