About Debi or Rod Conklin
Rod and I both grew up in San Francisco, married and moved to the Peninsula in 1972 where we built our home and raised our two children. In 2010 we moved to the Foothills east of Sacramento and are enjoying our new life there. As a family we spent our summers in Maui and the Big Island but always found ourselves gravitating back to Maui. Our first year at Ka'anapali Royal was in 1983 when our son was three and we have been enjoying the Royal ever since so that must say something. We have enjoyed bringing our kids, then with their spouses and now our five granddaughters. In June/July 2016 Maui was our destination and all 10 of us ventured across the Pacific pond to enjoy Enchanting Maui all together. Caitlyn, our oldest was 11, Riley and her cousin Hanna turned 7, Reese 5 and little Rowan turned 2 just after they left Maui. We have traveled throughout Europe several times, spent time in New Zealand twice but find relaxing in Maui just as rewarding. Rod loves to putter, both on the golf course and in the condo and I join him once and awhile. I enjoy helping out with the workload or stretching out with a book at oceans' door. In 2018 visited Florida with CA/Maui friends and in September cruised the Rhine River from Amsterdam to Basel. Then it was off to Luzern & Lake Como. 2019 will be exciting. I'll be celebrating my 70th and we'll be off to Iceland, London and South Africa. Big Game....here I come. In mid-Sept while we're in Africa, a new addition to our family will arrive. Two weeks later, it will be back Af2Maui. These trips are not all playtime you know, we have things to take care of after a busy summer of guests. We hope getting to know us just a bit will make the decision to trust us with your Maui accommodations an easier choice. Our reviews will confirm it as well. Mahalo, Debi & Rod Conklin
Debi or Rod Conklin purchased this Condo in 2001
Why Debi or Rod Conklin chose Lahaina
Most of all, the units are spacious and our location in the complex desirable. We have stayed in several complexes over the years but always found ourselves returning to the Royal. It's central location with Lahaina only a 10 minute drive and Whaler's Village directly across the golf course provides easy access to dining, shopping & of course Ka'anapali beach. A new shopping complex arrived in West Maui in 2010 across from the Lahaina Cannery Mall and improvements to the area are continuing. In 2014, both the Outlet Mall in Lahaina and a Target Store in Kahului arrived in Maui! More shopping options arrived in 2018 & soon a west-side Ross & Ace Hardware opening on the West Side - Hallellujah! Now if we could only get a mini-Lowes or mini-Home Depot on our side, life would be grand-er.

Great hosts and location with lots of amenities
This is the best vacation rental we have ever had from the owners, to the amenities, to the location and the price. We want to thank Debi and Rod for being such great hosts. From the beginning they were always very communicative with us. They go above and beyond in their service and even through personalized gifts. They obviously share their condo with pride and made sure we were ready to enjoy it as well.
Fantastic centralized location. The beach is a 10-minute walk as well as lots of shopping and restaurants within Whalers Village. We also spent time to the north in Napili Bay for snorkeling and took time to shop, eat and take in the sites along Front Street in Lahaina to the south. Highly recommend both.
Such great amenities at the condo. Lots of cookware that made it easy to prepare our own meals. The grill on the lanai was a definite plus. We made ample use of the beach towels, boogie boards, and even snorkeling fins which were a big help. They even provide a hose on the lanai making it easy to wash off all the sand once you return. Also from the lanai you are just steps from enjoying a pool as well. Washer and dryer are top notch. The bathrooms and overall decor are modern and clean.
Thanks again to the Conklins for helping to make our trip to Maui pleasurable and memorable.
"Enchanting" Christmas and New Years with family on "Maui"
We booked our vacation with Deb and Rod almost a year ago. After working with them before our trip, I felt like we knew each other and were old friends. Once we arrived at their "home" we felt like we were home. Everything had been thought of ahead of our arrival. Every kitchen utensil was provided along with any spice you would want. We have stayed at other VRBO units, but Enchanting Maui went above and beyond. Our 9 year old grandson loved the boogie boards that are provided, along with many other beach items that were there for the use. During our stay, the barbeque grills in the pool area were being replaced, but a grill was on the lanai for us to use, just another of the items provided. From the welcome call from Deb after arriving to the follow-up email after we left, everything was great. We look forward to our next trip to Maui and our next stay at "Enchanting Maui".

Most comfortable, clean and well stocked place we have ever stayed in!
This place is amazing and has everything one could possibly want in a vacation home! I was quite impressed at the owners attention to detail from the lovely decor(love the wood stair nosings), custom labels throughout, detailed instructions, kitchen stock & organization, soft close cabinets, superb washer/dryer, black out curtains in bedrooms and how clean and well maintained the place is. The unit and resort is family friendly with easy access to the pool and green space. We have been coming to Maui for the past 10 years and have stayed in the surrounding resorts and condos so this was the first time staying at this resort. I will definitely be back. Thank you Debi for making our stay one of the best yet.
Great Place - Excellent location
We loved our stay at this condo. It was perfect for our group. Ground floor made getting to the pool easy and the lanai was a wonderful place to enjoy a sunset.
It was well outfitted and comfortable. Recommend!
The greatest compliment that we can receive is a re-booking and we thank you so very much for that.
We strive to make our guests vacation a bit more special and hearing that we did a great job is rewarding.
First time in maui
Had a wonderful time. Great location, and amazing accommodations. Quick walk to beach and nearby golfing. Hoping to be able to return someday.
Perfect central location with all the comfort of home.
The apartment was very well equipped with all the items you need during a vacation here. It was clean and comfortable and Debi and Rod were very easy to communicate with. The apartment is situated very near the main shopping area and beach area. We would definitely recommend this to our friends.
We are so pleased that we met your expectations and that everything was perfect . We love having everything right at our fingertips so it's great to hear that it's appreciated.
Hope we can be your home away from home again in the future.
Whale Watching is Seasonal. The whales start arriving in late October/early November and grace our waters until the end of April. If you're planning your trip during these months, plan on arranging a Whale Watch with the Pacific Whale Foundation. They are excellent and provide a well-INFORMED whale tour. Definitely worth the money.
