Overview

About the property

Condo, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Welcome to another great MAUI FOOTPRINTS property (Maui Eldorado K109).

The Maui Eldorado Resort is in an area known for pristine, white-sand beaches and crystal-clear, blue waters. Voted one of the top ten US Budget Resorts, this property is only a ten-minute drive from historic Lahaina Town and is renowned for its special rooms, three pools and its own private beach cabana. With condo prices that are lower than hotel rates, but with many hotel-style services, this resort sits just off of beautiful Black Rock Beach in Ka'anapali.

Why pay those crazy hotel prices when you can stay in the luxury and privacy of your own condominium with all of the hotel amenities at your service? This gorgeous studio is huge at 570 square feet (larger than most other resorts' one- bedroom units), plus a large lanai for dining or simply relaxing. It has central air-conditioning in addition to ceiling fans, whereas most condos on Maui only have ceiling fans. Pets and smoking are NOT permitted.

This suite has been appointed with Hawaiian-themed furniture, appliances, towels (bath and beach/pool), linens, TV, DVD/VCR - all waiting for you. Wifi Internet connectivity is complimentary in this suite. Have fun in the heart of Kaanapali at the Maui Eldorado, only steps away from one of the best, wide, sandy beaches on the island.

Check in and the on-site staff will take you and your luggage to your unit. Forgot something or need a snack? Pick it up at the Eldorado Market, located in the lobby. Getting tired of just lying around in the sun or at the resort's private cabana? Utilize the on-site activity desk to book a snorkel trip, sunset sail, whale watch, luau or other entertainment.

This over-sized studio has a king-sized bed and a convertible, queen-sized sleeper-sofa bed, full kitchen, bathroom with separate dressing room/vanity, a washer/dryer and floor-to-ceiling glass sliding doors leading onto your private lanai.

Step off your lanai and walk five-to-eight minutes along the Royal Kaanapali North Golf Course to the only private beach cabana in west Maui right on the wide, sandy beach and reserved for Maui Eldorado guests only - with an attendant on duty and equipped with beach loungers, chairs, towel service, a full kitchen, washrooms and showers - fabulous for families. Complimentary golf cart shuttles to and from the beach and the cabana are available, if you decide you would prefer to ride, not walk.

Even closer than the beach are the three pools on the property with poolside gas grills. Take an easy ten-minute walk to Whaler's Village, a popular dining, shopping and art gallery district, or visit the many resort hotels (Westin, Marriott, Hyatt, Sheraton, etc.) that surround Whaler's Village to enjoy additional fine dining, spa facilities, etc.

Whether you're looking for a quiet get-away, a busy beach vacation, golf, scuba diving, snorkeling, biking, tennis (next door at the 11-court, night-lit Royal Lahaina Tennis Ranch)...it's all here...waiting just for you. We can't wait for you to discover our 'home away from home' - we think that you will return year after year.

Some recent guest comments:

'We love that you can walk to all the little restaurants, Whalers Village, down the boardwalk to The Hyatt Regency and up the other way past Dukes. Fabulous location.'

'When we decide to come back, we would love to rent your place again.'

About Becky Fuller

We moved to Maui in 2003 after enjoying over thirty five years of 'Corporate life' with several different companies. We were fortunate to live in a variety of locations, not only on the 'Mainland' but also in Geneva, Shanghai and Hong Kong. Living in 'Paradise' (Maui) has been and continues to be a most pleasant experience!

Becky Fuller purchased this condo in 2005

Why Becky Fuller chose Lahaina

It was hard not to fall in love with the Maui Eldorado complex, given the location in Kaanapali, the spaciousness of the units, the proximity to the wonderful/world famous sandy beaches and the beach cabana... a totally unique amenity in this area. We are hopeful that you will find the Maui Eldorado equally enjoyable.

What makes this condo unique

The cabana is a delightful location for celebrations of life (birthday parties for our children, graduation parties, sporting event successes, etc.). Please take advantage of this facility... it is coveted by owners and guests.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Aloha Becky,



Thank you for sharing your wonderful Maui vacation home! We had a wonderful week here on Maui and we look forward to hopefully staying here in the future. Mahalo!

Everything I'd hoped for!

  • 5 of 5

I recently had the pleasure of staying in this beautiful condo while on a trip with my mom to celebrate her retirement. It was truly everything I could have hoped for! The condo itself was clean, comfortable, and spacious and the surrounding grounds, paths, and other areas of the complex were all clean and quiet and felt very safe. The Eldorado staff are friendly and helpful. The lovely and private lanai was perfect for our morning coffee while we watched the birds and enjoyed that fragrant island air. The beautiful and private beach and cabana are just a short walk from the unit. I enjoyed many hours walking on the beach, reading at the cabana, and gazing out at the ocean. Saw several humpback whales and dolphins! It is another short walk to Whaler's Village with its many shops and scenic pathways, as well as a handy place to catch the local hotel shuttle and the transit bus for sightseeing or a quick trip to Lahaina. This is a perfect location for those who do not want to rent a car. We spent hours up on the spacious pool deck, which was always quiet. There were many days when I had the pool practically all to myself. Another short walk away is the Kaanapali Beach Hotel with its Tiki Bar, a great little place to get tasty drinks and food while soaking up the atmosphere. I must also mention that it was truly a pleasure organizing our vacation stay with the owner, Becky. Always quick to respond to any questions, she is unfailingly pleasant and professional and will make sure her guests' needs are not only met, but exceeded! I'm already planning my next visit and hope to book this condo again next year, this time with my husband and kids. Thank you, Becky, for helping make this vacation such a special time for my mom and me. I can't wait to go back!

Best location unit needs major msintanrnce

  • 2 of 5

Can’t beat the prime location! Property was great too , easy access to Ocean etc. the only down side was this unit. Other reviews said dates which I can deal with , this more than that. There is visible mold! My allergies flayed up the second We walked in. The place needs a deep clean, it was surface cleaned decent, but side of refrigerator was filthy, and when we opened the pull out couch someone’s ear plug was in there . Then we noticed the smoke stained lamp shades, dirty ceiling fan, and black mold on ceiling and walls and around the vent. I have a feeling the actual owner hasn’t been here in years or doesn’t know how bad it is. I’m. Landlord myself and would want to know. Need to take down the old wallpaper which is causing the problem and Cole Ying moisture. What did I expect for such a cheap rate I guess. I knew it was a gamble, I figured for 3 nights it can’t be that bad. I would not stay in this unit again unless it was updated / deep cleaned

Owner's Response: While this review says that it was submitted on January 27, I just received it this week. I mention this to explain why it might look as if I delayed in responding. It is unfortunate that these guests did not reach out to us while they were here, so that we could try to address their issues immediately. We live and work very close to this resort and respond immediately to our guests whenever possible. Our guests’ satisfaction is extremely important to us! As I had month-long guests still in the unit when this review came in (and I didn’t want to disturb them), I did not have the chance to go in and take a look at the items mentioned in this review until today. Today, I did a complete inspection. I always inspect my units between guests’ visits, but I did an even deeper inspection this time due to this review. There was no sign of any mold whatsoever; the refrigerator has small little rust dots on the side of it which is caused by our moist tropical sea air; our ceiling fan has a brown edge which perhaps this guest mistook for dirt, but when we wiped it down, it was clean. The lamp shades show little-no wear and tear and are certainly not smoke stained. Please note that this is a no smoking unit. The ceiling is textured and the walls are a cloth texture and both are clean and acceptable. I do not know what Cole Ying moisture is. Our cleaning service is excellent and does regular deep cleans. In addition to their service, we also have routine professional drapery, carpet and floor tile cleaning. I deeply regret that this guest was not completely satisfied. As previously stated, we would have been more than happy to step in if they had contacted us while they were here. Their stay was over one month ago, and this is the first I am hearing any of their feedback. I encourage visitors to this site to take a look at the other reviews. For the past ten years, we have received almost all 5-star reviews.

Beautiful Grounds and Awesome Proximity!

  • 5 of 5

We've never stayed at the Maui Eldorado before however when we were searching on VRBO we recognised the property from our morning Walks and you can't help but to admire the Fairway Views and Open Space with background and distant Ocean and Mega Resorts below. Once we got settled in we found it to be relaxing and quiet. The Front Desk Staff were helpful and friendly. One of our only issues (our fault) was with the 5 different Remotes for the TV. As often as we were hardly in our room it was tempting to watch some TV on the 30 inch Screen (too small)after a long day in the Sun and we couldn't find the one Master remote among the 4 others. Becky was accommodating and within 2 minutes she contacted the Front Desk and Joe came down to get us set up and once he left we found the Master remote, that solved everything. The unit itself had good AC and the Beds were very Comfortable. The Shower went from Warm to Ice Cold abruptly for all of us, kind of alarming but gave us a jolt of enthusiasm to wash up quickly and move on. When speaking to others familiar with Maui Eldorado the first thing they say, Beautiful Resort, rooms are dated however the Location and Costs make it all worth while! We would stay here again and it was Fun trying out a New Resort, thank you Becky! Scott , Jody and Carly (Seattle).

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind response! I am so happy that you enjoyed the resort, the staff and the unit. The hot water heater is a central unit that services the entire resort. I have reported your experience to the Homeowners' Association, and they are taking appropriate action. Our guests satisfaction is extremely important to us, and it is through feedback such as yours that we are able to continue to strive to make improvements which further enhance the Maui Eldorado K 109 experience for all future guests. Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts with us! We would love the opportunity to accommodate you in the future when you return to Maui. With warm aloha, Becky

What a fantastic location, best yet on Kaanapali.

  • 5 of 5

I've been going to Maui since I was 14 and I'm not 56, I typically stayed at a resort/condo just up the way but they raised their rates to a ridiculous price and I just couldn't do it. We booked with Becky and this is by far the best location on Kaanapali. The condo was perfect for the two of us and one of the few places that I could find that still has a bath tub. Also, the staff at Eldorado is super. Walking down to the cabana is great exercise and if you aren't in the mood, they will give you a lift. Or, if you break two toes on a volcanic rock as I did, you can still get a lift.

Since I don't care to sleep with the AC on, Becky had thought of everything and there is a fan in the closet. Perfect for sleeping or you can sleep with the screen doors shut, windows open. Pure bliss during a tropical storm.

I'm pretty picky about what we eat and not a huge fan of eating out every night and the kitchen has everything you need to make your own meals should you need them. total Gem!!

Thank you Becky.

Maui Wonder

  • 5 of 5

My wife & I found this studio condo at Maui Eldorado to be perfect for our one week stay while visiting our daughter. The location was ideal for access to just about all the locations and sites we wanted to visit. The staff at the Eldorado had to Aloha spirit and were always pleasant & friendly. We enjoyed the cabana on the beach north of Black Rock and it wasn't at all difficult to arrange a ride down from our condo unit. I would be very remiss if I failed to express our appreciation to the owners for the friendly, prompt and accommodating responses to our questions and concerns. They were, actually, a pleasure to meet and do business with. All in all, an extremely pleasant experience for us and I do-not hesitate to recommend this unit to anyone visiting the Valley Isle.

Upon our arrival at midnight after a LONG flight, we instantly noticed the damp, mildew odor similiar to a damp cellar...it only got worse after that! Looking at the cream colored bedspread (not one pictured) we noticed several long dark hairs. Pulling it back, also found dark hairs on the sheets. The ceiling fan made a loud annoying "cricket" sound at every speed, unable to use. The popcorn ceiling was totally filthy especially noticed from the angle of the patio door. Also had 1" - 2" dust strands hanging from the ceiling. Noticed paint chipped off in living room & kitchen areas. Tiled floor was filthy and feet would stick in spots. Red stains on the bottom of the curtain panel's lining, looked soiled. Dead bugs found behind the bathroom door along with a lot of dust! AC vent on the wall by the bed looked filthy and this blew in the unit's sleeping & living areas. We purchased air fresheners to try & eliminate the damp odor but too strong. We stayed (miraculously) 6 nights out of a planned 2 weeks. Couldn't take it anymore after discovering several live bugs in bathroom & the TV armoire infested with termites! We would never again rent any units from these owners!

Owner's Response: As owners of this unit for almost ten years, our number one objective is our guests' satisfaction (many of whom are return visitors annually). If a guest experiences any type of problem or has a concern, we immediately respond to those guests to assure that they have a most enjoyable experience on Maui. Unfortunately, these guests did not contact us with regard to any issues until almost halfway through their stay on Maui. Upon being contacted, we met with them several times to determine how best to proceed with their concerns, but these guests were not willing to continue to stay in the unit, regardless of any corrective actions. We did ask two other independent parties to enter the unit to confirm any damp, mildew odor, but they were not able to detect any odor. Prior guests and subsequent guests also have not reported any odors. We also scheduled the housekeeping company to return and re-clean the unit, although in various cases they were also not able to identify the particular items identified in these guests' comments. In the spirit of "aloha", we cheerfully refunded the full amount for the remainder of these guests' stay. We encourage potential guests to review all of our previous guest comments to gain other guests' perspectives of our unit. We strive to provide the best possible accommodations to our guests, and we are saddened that these particular guests were not satisfied.
