When remodeling our unit, we invested in our unit with the understanding that for us this is a second home, we will have many friends and family staying in our unit, and that if it’s clean, comfortable, and feels like home, you’ll tell others and come back year after year. We’re confident the unique features we’ve invested in will pay for themselves and you’ll notice the difference.

About The Owner

Arthur is in the airline and destination-event-planning industries. Arthur is a single dad to the most amazing little boy named Aiden. We call Calgary, Canada home, but are avid travellers and love exploring the world. However, we love the perfect climate and beaches of Hawaii and always find time to visit the islands once if not several times per year. In our opinion Hawaii is one of the most beautiful and relaxing places in the world.

Arthur has always dreamed of owning a place in Maui for his family to enjoy for years to come. In the summer of 2008, that dream of owning property in Maui became a reality.

After many months of detailed research, we settled on the Kaanapali Shores property as being the best property, in the greatest location, as well as the best value we could get for our money. It was a place we definitely wanted to return to year after year, and with the extensive renovations we completed on our unit, we made it into an extraordinary “home away from home”. The way Aiden’s face lights up every moment we are there make it worth every penny and we look forward to many, many more trips to Maui together.

Thanks for considering our property, we know you'll enjoy it as much as we do.

Great Condo and Location

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in Maui with 4 couples and we rented 2 units at Kaanapali Shores. This was by far the better unit. Just steps from the pool and the ocean. Furnishings look new and modern. Owners are friendly and helpful as well. Highly recommend.

We come to this resort every year. This is our first time using this condo. Truly amazing. I cannot say enough good things. We really appreciated all of the extra touches. We had everything that we needed to feel at home. The bed and Murphy bed were both so comfortable. So close to the beach. We were able to see many turtles in the water just steps from the door.

The AC was not working when we arrived and called Julie and she had maintenance there within 10 minutes. Thank you Julie.

We are sad to be leaving Maui but as soon as we get home I plan on booking our next trip and staying at this condo.

All That We Hoped For

  • 5 of 5

Bucket List Achieved

This condo was all that we hoped for. The proximity to pool, ocean, resteraunt and other family was perfect. The condo was clean, and the many extras, from soaps to any item required for fun in the sun. The patio was perfect for having that morning coffee.

Working with Arthur while planning this trip was worry free, directing us every step of the way and supplying a wonderful list of things to do, etc. prior to our arrival. You will not be disappointed with this condo or the owner, great destination!

Fantastic condo in a great location

  • 5 of 5

My husband, myself and our 2 year old daughter stayed here for 8 nights in November. This was our 5th time to Maui in 5 years and this was by far our favourite place. This was our first time staying in Kaanapali Shores.

From the very first email I sent inquiring about availability, the entire process of booking, paying and receiving our information for arrival was seamless. Arthur was easy to work with. On our arrival we were very happy with the condition of the condo. It is fully renovated and beautiful inside. You can easily tell this condo is well cared with a lot of thought and care put into maintaining it. I loved the modern feel to it, but still with a nice Hawaiian touch in terms of decor. We had requested a crib, but on arrival found there was not one. However, upon phoning the Island contact person (Julie) we had a crib set up within 20 minutes happily at 9 pm.

The location of the condo is fabulous. Literally 65 steps from the beach as advertised. 20 steps away from the pool and directly across from a restaurant, which is very convenient for those mornings when you want a nice breakfast. The beach out front was beautiful. It is also a quick drive too Whaler's village (or a 45 minute walk along a nice beach path) and also close to other stores, restaurants and Times Market are literally right across the street.

The nicest touch of all though was how well stocked the condo was. Beach toys, chairs, snorkelling equipment, laundry (with soap too!), spices etc were all in the condo when we arrived. Having stayed in other condo's where this wasn't available, I knew how much money we saved not having to buy salt, pepper, steak spice etc. Having beach toys for our daughter was great too. The DVD library was a nice touch as well.

You will not be disappointed in this condo. We intend on using this condo as long as availability allows for all future trips to Maui.

Thanks for making our trip amazing!

Wonderful condo in an excellent location with a great host!

  • 5 of 5

We got married at the Kaanapali Shores in April 2013 so decided to bring the family back to this wonderful resort during whale season. We are a family of 6 and we found plenty of room for all of us in this condo. We knew that at times it would be a chore sharing a bathroom for all six of us but the restaurant bathrooms are right next to the unit across a walking path so that helped.

We found the unit spotlessly clean and exactly as it was described to us but I don't think the pictures quite do it justice. The updating is extremely well done and the furnishings very tasteful. The owner/manager Arthur does a great job. I am also a VRBO owner (367619) so I appreciate good management. Arthur hits all the major items (value, quality, cleanliness, location convenience) and throws in a lot of perks too! He provides boogie boards and snorkeling gear, coffee, soap and shampoo, a selection of DVD movies, the list goes on. He also provides helpful recommendations for local dining and activities and was responsive in answering all our questions.

The condo's location is excellent, on the ground floor right next to the pool and restaurant and a few steps from the ocean. The convenience of a ground floor unit is hard to overstate. You walk right out of your lanai sliding glass doors to the grass, pool, and beach. It's great to be able to easily pop in and out for a fresh drink, snack, etc. when hanging out at the pool or beach.

We spent our first few days in Hana so we went straight to Costco after picking up our rental car and then dropped by there again on our way to Kaanapali Shores. We mostly ate breakfast and lunch in the condo, but we went out for dinner at Leilani's at Whaler's Village (always great). We walked to Duke's at nearby Honua Kai for dinner another night, had a get a second crack at Hula Pie. For breakfast one morning we enjoyed cooking our own pancakes at Slappy Cakes right across the street from Kaanapali Shores. We also drove into Lahaina one evening for amazing shave ice.

I highly recommend this property for an amazing overall experience, for its many amenities, and its helpful and personable host Arthur. I don't know of a better value to be had on Maui.

Best Thanksgiving Ever

  • 5 of 5

We loved our vacation stay in this room. We had a party of 5 and there was plenty of room for everybody. We loved how close we were to the pool, the beach and the restaurant. We also loved the extras such as the body board, snorkeling equipment, appliances, and coolers for beach days. We had a small problem with the safe in the room and within 10 minutes Julie was there to help. If you are considering this resort for your stay I'd reccommend this room and the owner. The room is fabulous and the owner is so easy to deal with along with his on island staff.
