"2014 could have not ended better for our family! School was over and kids were so pumped to go to Maui. We are a family of five, joined by a family of 4 gathered up to celebrate and it could have not been better. Owners are super hospitable, thought of everything we could have imagines. Alan is the best. Proactively helping us with our schedules, left all house operating instructions on the table, introduced us to wonderful feature of shuttle travel around Kapalua, equipped kids for snorkeling and boogies boarding, set up the kitchen with goodies of all kinds, cleanest and newest sheets, arranged for gardening and maintenance services, introduced us to the subdivision management, left 3 sets of keys for all possible scenarios, supplied cleaning and laundry accessories, provided toiletries and most importantly respect to our time in paradise. We are spoiled and been everywhere around the world, not our first time traveling to Hawaii either, but man..if you think of something netter than Ritz, Four Seasons or St Regis = this is the place to go. Carlos Santana former house is next door, Kapalua golf course knocked me of my feet with its quality and views and honestly a month and a half later, we can not stop talking about our trip. This all went to the point where i texted Alan and asked him for the information on some cookware he has at the house and went online and bought it - little things in that house were still of the highest quality on the market!
4 year old - impressed and happy, 13 year old - just cant stop talking about the trip, 14 year old - loves it all around and both of their parents :) are simply grateful for this treat of nature, quality residence and just wonderful hospitality. If you are coming to Maui for a first time and really do not feel like driving far - Ritz is 10 minute walking, Gold is ten minutes, beach - shuttle to it or walk as we did, food wise - stores are all over the place and very close, Pool is shared by the Pineapple Hills residents and is amazing with the club house and tennis as well as BBQ and gazebos. Privacy is there for sure - we are a loud bunch but no one heard us..:) Master-bedroom is nothing short of a GRITI's best suite in Venice, other bedrooms are nothing short of superb comfort and style, and the house layout make you definitely own one of those asap! ..as they say, with this stay we got more than what we could ever pay for - we got a new Friend! Alan - we are coming back! THANK YOU my friend!"
