About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom with King size bed + 2 wall beds, 1 Bath, (Sleeps up to 4)

The resort is located on North Ka'anapali Beach. The resort fronts directly onto the ocean. Our ocean view unit is located on the top floor, right in the center of the resort's “horseshoe” configuration.

Our unit sleeps up to a family of 4.

The pictures you see are the unit you would be renting. We only have one unit to rent. The booking calendar and the rental rates are kept up to date. If a date shows as available, then it is available.

We can hold dates for short periods while you arrange air travel. Most flights leave Maui late in the evening. Late checkout arrangements at no additional cost are often available, depending on the next check-in.

We require a 50% deposit to book with the remaining 50% due 30 days prior to arrival. Our cancellation policy is to return 90% of any amount that we are able to generate from re-renting your cancelled dates. We do not re-rent the unit on a "reduced rent" basis. There will be an additional 2% fee if you pay via the VRBO payment system using a non-US credit card. The VRBO system does not show you this fee in the quote it generates. We also accept payment via PayPal or, if you are Canadian, via Interac e-transfer. Just ask before you press "Book Now".

From the balcony you have a sweeping view of the ocean, the nearby islands of Lanai and Molokai, and the tropical sunsets. Below our balcony, the resort's lush tropical garden is filled with tropical birds , a waterfall feature and koi ponds. Two pools provide ample swimming for both adults and children.

A NOTE ABOUT OUR BEACH: For many decades there was always a sand beach in front of our resort. That is no longer the case. Beach erosion has hit the whole west side of Maui and our area is no exception. Winter storms strip the sand away and summer storms bring it back. The beach in front of the resort changes significantly throughout the year.

The unit was completely remodeled and refurnished in 2011. Upgrades included a Murphy Bed unit with two twin size pillow top mattresses in the living room (no more sofa bed), a larger bathroom with a doorless glass and tile shower (no tub), granite counters throughout, new cabinets (lots of storage space), new living room and bedroom furniture (including a King-sized bed), travertine tile floor, two Sony flat screens with DVD players, HD TV cable boxes, computer station, and an X-Box 360. In 2015 we replaced the patio doors, windows, screens, and window coverings. The unit is maintained extensively and looks just as it did right after the renovation.

The kitchen is fully equipped, so eating out is an option rather than a necessity. Beach towels and bath supplies are included.

Ka’anapali Shores is a ten acre resort with a spacious open-air lobby, two swimming pools, two hot tubs, mini-market, beauty salon, activities/tours desk, ATM, DVD rental, beachside restaurant and bar, flower shop, gym, sports-wear shop, tiki torch ceremonies, and beautiful tropical plants and flowers throughout the grounds. There is a large coral reef right off the beach. Consider an introductory scuba lesson, offered daily at the main pool.

From the resort, you are five minutes by car to the shops of Whaler’s Village, the golf resort of Kapalua, and the restaurants and shopping of Lahaina Town. Right across the street you will find a shopping mall with a large grocery store open from 5 am to 2 am, coffee shop, pizza and pasta restaurant, clothing/gift stores, nail and hair salon, and eateries. The local farmers’ market is a 5 minute walk to the north.

We have on-island support for any issues that may arise during your stay. We can also arrange for daily or weekly cleaning at an additional cost.

About Patrick Mahoney

Our family lives near Calgary, Canada where Teresa and Pat have both practiced law for over 30 years now (time flies). We have travelled all over the world since our first child was 6 months old. They are now both adults. We keep travelling to new places, but always make one or two trips a year to Maui.

Patrick Mahoney purchased this condo in 2010

Why Patrick Mahoney chose Lahaina

We have been coming to Maui for decades now. We tried a few different places, but Ka'anapali Shores has always been our favorite resort.

What makes this condo unique

The view from the unit is one of the best at the resort. The Murphy bed units, instead of a sofa bed, is something we always wished we had for our two children when travelling. Nobody ever wanted the sofa bed. The remodelled bathroom is more spacious than the resort's original design. Canadians can pay the Canadian dollar equivalent via Interac e-transfer and save exchange fees. Ask before you press "Book Now".

A beautiful and serene place to spend the first part of our honeymoon.

Absolutely wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is everything it is advertised to be. It was wonderful to enjoy morning coffee and listen to the ocean, the birds and see the whales breaching. The condo was very clean and had all the necessary things like towels etc. We appreciated the shopping centre across the street as we landed in Maui very late and did not have the opportunity to shop Costco for groceries when we first arrived. It was very convenient to just walk across the street and grab coffee and groceries before we left on our first foray of the island.

The owner was wonderful to deal with from the time I first inquired about renting the condo and he exhibited patience when I asked questions of him. He always answered my emails in a timely manner and was very helpful with tips etc. Thanks Patrick, your assistance made the trip much more enjoyable as we knew what to expect when we arrived.

I would definitely rent this condo again if it was available.

Amazing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing vacation! The owners were always prompt with a reply to an email - often times answering within an hour. The condo was exceptional.

The kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed to make meals in. The bed and the bedding were so comfortable - I had an awesome nights sleep every day. The views were spectacular! Sitting in the balcony, watching the sunsets, watching the waves roll in, watching the beautiful gardens - it was unreal. The two Murphy beds were an outstanding alternative to the normal sofa beds and were very comfortable. When folded up they made the condo very spacious.

The condo was convenient with many things within walking distance. The grocery store. A liquor store. The farmers market. We even walked to Black Rock to snorkel - since parking there was a challenge. The condo is a short drive to two of my now favorite beaches: DT Fleming beach and Honolua Bay - some of the best snorkeling you can drive to.

The concierge in the lobby was a great added touch. She helped us book a Luau and a snorkeling trip. If you are going to go on a snorkeling excursion I highly recommend the Maui Magic. The crew was phenomenal and the trip to Molokini Crater shouldn’t be missed. I have never been snorkeling in such a clear area. The sight is out of this world.

The on sight bar / restaurant- the Beach Club Restaurant was great for that relaxing pool day. Pool side service always an awesome touch. Happy hour from 2-5 and the meals throughout the day were very good.

While the beach in front of the condo has eroded away - a short walk and you can be in the beach. Please don’t let that dissuade you from this excellent condo.

While the road to Hana and Haleakalā crater are a little more of a drive to get to, the ride is scenic and beautiful. For all the amenities and things that the Lahaina area has to offer - I wouldn’t stay anywhere else.

This is our first trip to Maui and God willing it won’t be our last. The experience of renting this condo was exceptional. Patrick was so easy to work with and prompt on responses. He even took the time to provide a list of must see things to do for us so we wouldn’t miss out on the beauty that is Maui.

Patrick - thank you for the hospitality of allowing us to stay at your wonderful condo. I hope we will be back soon.

Amazing room with a equally amazing view

  • 5 of 5

This property is all it’s advertised and more nestled in the great kanapalli area of Maui you pull up and meet some great people at the resort as soon as you arrive . Get in the elevator at feel like royalty when going up to the ph level . Short walk from elevator to room but not too close that you here people at the elevator walk in to a great room and open the patio and say wow . The first morning looked out and saw whales jumping right in front of resort. The resort is great phenomenal people right from the gate who make you feel like their happy you finally arrived to the amazing people throughout the resort. So many things to do so little time but that’s the great thing about Maui you can keep yourself busy all day long or just enjoy your down time. Rated 5 Star room was great owner provides a binder with all the details of the room as well as a lot of useful tips for the area Stay here and you will not be disappointed. Aloha !!

Best view in Maui

  • 5 of 5

Everything advertised was in the room. Wall beds are the best, better in my opinion than a sofa bed. Will defiantly recommend to our friends.

Thanks for sharing your condo with us.

As advertised

  • 5 of 5

The location and Condo was everything it was advertised to be. Walking distance to shops and grocery stores. The beach was perfect for our kids and we even saw some turtles. The condo was perfect for our family of 4. Kids used the Murphy beds and actually enjoyed making their beds every day because they tucked away. Thank you Mahoney's for sharing your condo.

Car: recommended

Our resort – Ka'anapali Shores is right in the heart of Ka’anapali and all the activities that it’s known for around the world.

A nearby oceanside boardwalk takes you south to Whalers Village, a world class shopping village which has 70+ shops, cafes, and elegant restaurants – you can walk it in 45 minutes along the ocean.

Ka’anapali has the right mixture of sun, rain, and mist to support two golf courses. Kaanapali Golf Resort's Royal Kaanapali Course and the Kaanapali Kai Course. The Kapalua Resort courses are a 10 minute drive north.

Right across the street from the Resort's entrance is a full service grocery/liquor store along with other shops and restaurants.

Ka'anapali Shore is very child friendly.
