About The Owner

Ever since our first visit to Hawaii in 1979 we were hooked. We knew finding a place on one of Hawaii's incredible islands would be our top priority. So we set out to discover each Island. We wanted an Island with fabulous uncrowded beaches, gourmet restaurants, fantastic hiking, great snorkeling and diving opportunities and high on our list...night life venues that offer romantic dancing or places we could sit relaxing in a cozy spot overlooking the ocean while listening to great music.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2003

Why The Owner chose Lahaina

After several years of visiting and exploring six of Hawaii's incredible islands our decision was clear. Without a doubt, MAUI is the place!! All of our requirements... and more are right here. Kapalua and Kaanapali have miles of beautiful golden sand uncrowded beaches... great for swimming and body surfing, fantastic snorkeling at Kapalua Bay, body surfing at Oneola and DT Fleming Beach, an 80 mile long hiking trail here in Kapalua encircles the entire Resort thru the mountains, pineapple fields down to the beach, gourmet restaurants and night life spots all over the Island... but especially here in Kapalua.

What makes this villa unique

Once the decision was made, our biggest requirement was that wherever we chose had to be Ocean Front and have an Ocean View from both the Living Room AND Master Bedroom. Our Penthouse Villa offers this and more. Even the guest room, kitchen and master bath shower have an ocean view. We adjoin 3 of the world's most beautiful beaches (Oneola, Kapalua Bay and DT FLeming Beach) as rated by Conde Nast and The Travel Channel. You have your choice of 3 heated Ocean View pools, barbecue areas with side by side grills at each pool, complimentary Resort-wide shuttle service, access to the best golf courses on the Island, complimentary tennis and night time lighted courts, access to Kapalua's Zip Line Adventure Center, on Resort grocery store and several of Maui's top rated gourmet restaurants are all within walking distance. Finally our on-site concierge service can help you make reservations with all the exciting whale watching/snorkel trips, Haleakala Volcano, Hana tours and more.

Amazing views, stunning property!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot express how much we loved this rental. From the reservation process to the checkout. Patty was sooooo helpful and had so many suggestions for us. She even helped me figure out the best way to handle tight connecting flights and was so accommodating when I made a last minute request. She’s a miracle worker!

The unit itself couldn’t be in a better location. It was a bit chilly and windy (typical in early March) but that made for even more spectular views of the waves on the lava cliffs below. The sandy beach is just steps away, and although it was too windy to swim in, my boogie boarding hubby enjoyed it. We loved watching the whales and seeing rainbows from the breakfast table and enjoyed walking along the path below each morning.

The unit was spotless and had everything we needed down to snorkeling equipment. The beds were comfortable and towels were plush. We truly had a one of a kind experience here and can’t wait to return!

We also loved they keyless entry. We we so happy to not have to check in anywhere or wait for an agent to come let us in since our arrival came in so late!

Absolutely perfect place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We have vacationed in Maui many times, but this villa by far, has been our favorite place to stay. This is our second time staying here, and it has been just as good the second time around. The pictures of this villa do not do it justice. The views are breathtaking from every window. The villa is fully stocked with everything you could possibly need including boogie boards, beach chairs, beach towels and binoculars. It was also very convenient to have a washer and dryer in the unit as well. My kids had a great time down on the beach with the boogie boards, as well as hiking on the trails and going tide pooling. During this trip, we were able to see many sea turtles, from our villa, swimming close to shore. And, on our last trip, two years ago, we were able to watch the whales everyday from the villa. Best whale watching ever! The unit itself is immaculately clean with every attention to detail. It is always a pleasure working with Patty to book our reservations. We were welcomed back to the villa our second time around with a beautiful gift basket. Thank you Patty for such an awesome place to stay and for making us feel so welcome. We will definitely be back!

A first class cut above the rest - perfection!

  • 5 of 5

Kapalua Bay Villas is a wonderful place to stay - the location is great with proximity to the gorgeous coastal trail, community amenities, etc. This unit is PERFECTION! We spoke with a few individuals staying in the area at other units, and the accommodations in these villas can vary greatly. We were VERY happy with everything in this condo. You have everything you need to enjoy your time in Maui (insulated beach bag, beach chairs, boogie boards, beach umbrella). Thanks to Patty's recommendation of stopping at Costco on the way in (we also got a great deal on our rental car through Costco) we were able to cook or heat up many meals right in the villa, avoiding most of the high priced Maui dining experiences. We have rented villas on other islands, such as St. John in the USVI, and I will say that this Villa is first class all the way. Our best excursions were to Kapalua Beach for snorkeling (drive or walk) and to the Old Lahaina Luau. We also took a whale watching tour, but we found the best whale watching is right from the villa (I'm not kidding!) We also loved watching the turtles at the west end of Oneola right in front of the condo. They swim in very shallow waters there and even come up on the beach sometimes. The views are truly outstanding from literally EVERY room - the pictures just do not do it justice. It is breathtaking. I cannot express how difficult it is to leave - this place truly felt like home in every sense of the word and I know we will be back. Thanks Patty!

Holiday Family Vacay

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Kapalua Bay Villas was spectacular! This villa is beautiful and has the best location and view. It was plenty spacious for our family of 4. My only suggestion is to figure t a way to make the upstairs master cooler. I understand that with doors and windows open the unit will freeze but we couldn't seem to get upstairs cooled down to our liking in the evening. Other than that this experience was outstanding and Patty Cassidy was wonderful to work with. We will certainly be back and would highly recommend to anyone.

Owner's Response: We are so glad to hear you had a wonderful stay...and a bit saddened to hear you had difficulties cooling the upstairs Master. We always like to address any issues that might help make our guest's stay a little bit better. This is a brand new AC System and wish you had contacted us to let us know. I am certain we could have helped. We sure look forward to assisting you upon your return! Mahalo nui loa, Patty & Rick
