About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

If you want to experience Maui at it's best, this is the place you will want to stay. This condominium, Dolphin 275, offers the privacy of the 2nd floor in an oceanfront bungalow wing of the Villas. The very low density population offers a peaceful respite from the busy tourist crowds at the big hotels. It is just steps from the pool and magnificent Kaanapali Beach. From the lanai you can view the island of Lanai while enjoying a tropical drink or sunset dinner.

Maui Kaanapali Villas is a condominium/resort situated on 11 acres of beachfront property. You will enjoy a new pool with tropical umbrellas, a Jacuzzi, and keiki (kiddie) pool. An oceanfront restaurant (Castaways) offers a wide variety of meals and extensive wine selection. Other amenities include an excursion/event desk, convenience store, Laundromat, and a beach hut offering snorkel and beach equipment. A free trolley will take you to Whaler's Village shopping center, Kaanapali Golf Courses(36 holes), and several major hotels. In the evening you will enjoy the Hawaiian tradition of tiki torch lighting, and fall asleep to the soothing sound of the trade winds and ocean breakers.

About Janelle Howatt

This condominium was purchased in 1973 by three couples on an inter-island trip to Hawaii. We live in different locations on the west coast...Pacific Palisades, Calif., Mammoth Lakes, Calif., and Portland, Oregon. We all love Maui and enjoy our times there. Clarke Howatt has been on the Homeowner's Board for 8 years as Vice President of Buildings and Grounds and has headed the up-grading of the pools and grounds.

Why Janelle Howatt chose West Maui

After visiting 4 other islands, we decided that Maui was by far the preferred island considering the good weather, the magnificent sandy beaches and in particular, the Kaanapali beach community. Located in the famous Kaanapali Resort, it is on the beach yet close to the town of Lahaina, a variety of shopping and several local golf courses.

What makes this condo unique

Maui Kaanapali Villas offers a quiet ambience with uncrowded grounds. Guests have the option of relaxing on the beach either in the sun or under shade trees on a chaise lounge on the large lawn while watching the beautiful blue ocean. Usually the ocean is calm enough for children to play in the waves. The pools offer a variety of depths, including a 'keiki' (kiddie's) pool.

Quiet and Comfortable with Great Views

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week in this great rental. We found it to be quiet and very comfortable. Castaway Café is such a close and convenient café that serves delicious food with the warm ocean breeze and beautiful view as you enjoy your meal. . Enjoyed colorful and scenic snorkeling just to the right of condo daily. The grounds are beautiful and the staff very friendly and happy to assist you in making your stay a memorable one. This condo was clean, had a well stocked kitchen and the murphy bed to my surprise was very comfortable. Parking right near our condo was never a problem. So much to do on Maui and we felt we were in the perfect spot to venture out from. Nice to have the shuttle bus which runs to Whalers Village all day long, Shopping and Restaurants. Owners were very easy to book with and returned any questions we had very promptly. Loved the condo and its location. We definitely will be back! Mahalo

Great Condo, Close to Everything

  • 5 of 5

This was our second trip to the Maui Kaanapalli Villas. We stayed on the first floor of the tower last time, and knew we wanted to be closer to the pool and beach this trip. We were glad we found this condo, as it is ideal for those who want to be close to everything within the condo commons. The lanai overlooks the main pool from the second floor, and both the pool and beach are about a 1-minute walk. Everything was a described in the listing, with the exception of how much fun you can have. The room was clean, with updated furnishings, and parking was close by. The barbecue was close enough, that if you have to let your food rest a bit, it was a short enough walk to allow that to happen without getting cold.

The owners were more than easy to work with, and made special accommodations with our booking due to a family emergency. We were very pleased, and have already talked about our return trip. Our only complaint, was that we had to leave. See you again soon!!!!

Absolutely perfect unit!

  • 5 of 5

We had stayed at Kaanapali Villas before, and knew we wanted to be in the Dolphin buliding this time, there are great views of the ocean, pool, and grounds. This unit did not disappoint. It is everything just as is described, including a great murphy bed for additional sleeping. The view was great, and everything you want to do is very near by. There's a wonderful beachwalk right off the beach as well. I would recommend Kaanapali Villas to everyone, and this unit also. We will definitely be back!!

Was a great stay

  • 4 of 5

Place was as pictured. Fit our family of 4 well. There was always a parking space. Pool was really nice. Very refreshing. It's a laid back condo complex, we felt there was an older crowd. Views and lanai were awesome. Place is right on the beach! It's beautiful. Wish we knew the next door neighbor was remodeling. Compressor and tile saw didn't go with island vibe. Only heads up I can share is to bring pool towels. Being an owner guest, you don't get them. Bummer. Price was good and our vacation was very nice. Wish we were staying longer. I would recommend this condo for sure.

A Wonderful Kannapali Accommodation

  • 5 of 5

We had a terrific stay in this nicely appointed, clean 2nd floor unit - enjoyed the private balcony overlooking the pool and having some ocean views as well. The Maui Villas complex is well maintained, quiet and a wonderful small resort size. The lovely pool and breath-taking beach were never overly busy, and we loved snorkling just to the right of the resort's sandy swimming area, viewing many fish in the corel reefs. The Villas are in a great location to walk along the boardwalk/beach to other resorts, drive in your car up or down the road to nearby quaint towns, or take the free trolley to the shops/restaurants in the busier part of the Kaanapali resort area.
