We are extremely proud of our unit and the property we chose to purchase it in.

Kaanapali Shores is not just a place to stay; it’s a destination resort with all the amenities you would need for a perfect vacation, including: 2 heated pools, 2 hot tubs, tennis courts, BBQ area, coffee shop, Kids Club, beach restaurant & bar, shops, salon, health club with new Precor and Life Fitness equipment, spa services, sun bathing lawn, immaculate grounds, free Wi-Fi, internet café, Expedia activity desk, and more. Not to mention it’s located right on the world famous Kaanapali beach. Across the street you’ll find a 24 hour super market, video rental, Maui Dive shop, restaurants, and more. Just down the street is a farmers market and famous ABC convenience store. Needless to say, we did our research before buying at Kaanapali Shores.

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.

Property is spectacular !

  • 5 of 5

we had an amazing time! We have not stayed on the west side of Maui before, and now we will only be staying there. This property is located in a perfect location . The property is clean, comfortable and has all of the comforts of home. The view from this property is breathtaking and you are able to hear the waves of Maui at night while you sleep. Can't wait to return, and we will definitely request rental of this property again!

Thank you to Arthur and his family for allowing us to enjoy a stunning condo!

Very nice unit!!

  • 5 of 5

We are an older couple. Being on first floor was amazing. Unit was everything they said. In fact we had more room in our kitchen than my sons two bedroom unit. Access out the lani to both pools and reasturant. Could see ocean from lani. We had one small issue with cable tv. Owner took care of it immediately. Had everything you need for cooking etc. Will stay here again the next time we come to Maui. Love love love.

Fantastic Unit at Aston Kaanapali Shores for 18 Days

  • 5 of 5

This is the third time my family has stayed at Kaanapali Shores, though only the first at Arthur's condo. This is the best condo we have stayed in, and it is not even close. It is impeccably clean, well stocked, and the location cannot be beat unless you are in a two bedroom oceanfront unit paying $100's more per night. The unit has a king size bed in the separate bedroom, and a queen size murphy bed as well as a hide-a-bed in the sofa.

The condo has a couple boogie boards, beach chairs, cooler, pool floaties if you have little ones with you, tennis rackets, etc. It looks like previous guests have left useful stuff for the next guests. We bought an additional plastic tub to help organize the pool toys and floaties. The kitchen with pots, pans, glasses, plates and utensils, as well as the restroom are well stocked. You just need to hit Costco outside the airport or Times Market directly across the street from Kaanapali Shores and you are set for a great vacation.

We had all our meals and cocktails on the lanai where we could see the ocean and just enjoy the fresh air. The beach is basically gone right now due to the tides, but right next door at the pink palace is a beach, or better yet jump in the car and go up to Napili Bay or Kapalua Bay about 8 to 10 minutes away for some fantastic snorkeling or just float in the warm water.

I would stay here again in a heartbeat and just might next year if I don't buy my own unit there. Arthur is responsive and a great person to deal with. You will have a great trip if you can find an available date.

This was better then expected the view was amazing and the fact that it’s on the bottom floor was very convenient when we loaded up the car. The hospitality was also great and I can’t wait till my next visit to Maui.
