Premier Maui Oceanfront Resort

Bedrooms 2
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 2 - 4 nights


About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 9)

Regular price is 3600 plus tax per week (350-550 per night) and can be any length. (Check calendar for availability)

This two bedroom luxury vacation villa features large lanais, stone flooring, granite counter tops, roomy bathrooms, fully equipped kitchens, washer/dryer, and the Westin Heavenly King Beds with layer upon layer of cozy down bedding and some of the world's finest linens. Sleeps eight with king Heavenly Beds in both bedrooms and two queen sized sleeper sofas.

Westin Ka'anapali is the premier oceanfront resort on Maui.


This entire resort is run by Westin and managed like a hotel. All the units at this resort are managed as part of a common pool. Unit assignments are made at check in. No one has the right to any specific unit.

This has some advantages and disadvantages for you, the guest.


1) There's no risk that you'll get a unit with tacky left over furniture from the 70s, or that hasn't been cleaned well, or with ancient non-working appliances. All the units are furnished by Westin and are identical on the inside.

2) Procedures for check in, etc are simple. No matter who you rent from, you get your electronic card keys at the same front desk, etc.


1) Because all the units are part of a common rental pool, no owner can tell you which specific unit you will be assigned.

2) Most owner reservations are 'run of the house' meaning you are not guaranteed any particular view. The only way an owner can guarantee their guest will have a particular view is to meet all three of these requirements:

a) book the reservation at the resort more than 8 months in advance;

b) book for exactly 7 nights starting on a friday, saturday, or sunday;

c) have originally purchased one of the units which has view reservation rights.

I don't have special view reservation rights. However, I own a lot of units. That makes me a '5 Star' elite owner in the Starwood/Westin program. As a result, my guests get some priority for unit assignments. So far everyone has been happy with their view and unit assignment.

However, if your vacation will be ruined if you don't get an oceanfront unit you probably want to find someone else who can guarantee your view. Remember, if it's less than 8 months before check in, you need to find an owner who happened to reserve your exact dates before the 8 month deadline.


Why should you rent from me then instead of the many others listing identical units on VRBO®?

Here are some things to consider:

1) Price.

My price for the 2 bedroom unit is one of the lowest prices out there. For the dates listed above, I have even lower special prices.

2) Accurate availability calendar

VRBO® now lets you search for properties which are available during your desired dates. Unfortunately, many owners at this property don't keep their calendar up to date. That's a good way to let you waste your time contacting owners who don't have your dates available. I have a lot of dates to rent and I keep my calendar up to date.

3) Flexibility in length of stay.

If you don't want to book exactly 7 days and check in on a Saturday, I can help. I own a lot of time at this resort so I can be flexible on length of stay and check in date. I take bookings of 3 or more days starting any day of the week.

4) Flexibility to change dates or cancel.

If your plans change after booking, you have some flexibility depending on how far in advance you notify me. (Specials can not be canceled.)

For cancellations 70 days or more prior to check in you can choose from these options:

a) 95% credit toward booking different dates the same year

b) 75% credit toward booking different dates in a future year; or

c) 50% cash refund.

For cancellations between 14 and 70 days prior to check in, you can choose a 90% credit toward another booking the same year for check in no more than 60 days in advance. (Sorry, for cancellations less than 14 days in advance, there is full forfeiture.)

More about the Resort:

You will enjoy the conveniences of the resort's many amenities including a general store and a business center with computers and Internet access. The resort also offers a variety of recreational activities including lavish swimming pools featuring waterfalls and a 90-foot slide, a pool bar, lighted tennis courts, lounge and game room, and outdoor gas grills. Just for the kids, the resort features a kiddie pool and The Westin Kids Club children's program, which offers cultural activities and excursions to nearby attractions. For relaxation and rejuvenation, guests can enjoy the resort's hot tubs, or work up a sweat in The Westin Workout Fitness Center, which features a sauna and steam room.

Set along a pristine expanse of Kaanapali’s North Beach, the Westin Kaanapali Ocean Resort Villas is an uncommonly luxurious vacation opportunity. Each residence embraces both Westin’s standard of quality and Maui’s most spectacular ocean front vistas. These Villas have extraordinary comfort, masterfully designed, richly furnished, and impeccably finished. Add to this an extensive list of amenities, high speed internet access, the Westin Heavenly Bed, hairdryer, concierge services, business center, a magnificent recreation lagoon, and an unlimited array of activity options. It’s easy to see why The Westin Kaanapali Ocean Resort Villas Resort is one of Maui’s premier vacation properties.

Beautiful place

  • 4 of 5

The rooms were really nice; we had two adjoining rooms-plenty of room for a family of 5. Pools were nice and fun for the kids.

Perfect Vacation Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

From booking through VRBO, to communication with Robert, to the accommodations themselves, we could not have asked for a better all-around vacation experience. The resort is fantastic and the room was spacious and pristine. Robert is crystal clear in his property description of how the owner-owned rooms work (we did not have the greatest view, but when you are in Maui, who needs a view from your room? You should not spend much time there anyway). Great communication with the owner and easy booking.

I would recommend this booking to anyone and will definitely use again if and when we return to Maui!

This was perfect. The location and a entities can't be beat.

  • 5 of 5

The unit was exactly what we needed. I went with my husband, 1 yo, in laws and sister in law. There was plenty of space. We were lucky enough to be oceanfront which was amazing. Working with Robert was great. He was responsive to any questions in a timely manner. I would book again here through Robert in a heartbeat.

Great Property, Beautiful Views With 2 Exceptions

  • 4 of 5

I would have rated the property a 5 except for 2 issues (see below). The owner gave us a great price for 10 days (compared to if we booked directly with the Westin Villas) for a 2 bedroom suite and explained we would have to move to a new unit after 3 days. Spending the remaining 7 days in another unit. For the 1st 3 days we were in a first floor 2 bedroom suite. The rooms were beautiful and we had a partial ocean view. The pool area was terrific with plenty of lounge chairs. The prime spots with shade go quick. After 3 days we were told we had to move to a new unit which we expected. What I did not expect was having to check out at 10am, have the bellboy hold our luggage and food, and wait until 4pm before checking in to our new unit. What I did not like was paying for 10 days and not having access to our new room for 6 hours. They do have an owner's lounge we could have used during the day but it's not the same as having your own unit. Once our new 2 room suite was available, they put us in a 3rd floor handicapped 2 room suite (none of us are handicapped) which was very nice with an ocean view and a view of the pool area. However the bathrooms lacked privacy compared to our first unit. And the room my wife and I stayed only had a hand held shower that was part of the tub and the hand held only extended about 3 1/2 feet above the tub. Not good enough for a 6 ft guy like me when taking a shower. So each day I used the shower facility in the gym. The Westin Villas is a great place if you are willing to put up with moving every 7 days when staying longer than 7 days. We heard about a lady who stayed for 8 weeks and moved 8 times. Also met an owner who learned to put up with having to move. Bottom line is I would stay there again if we were staying only 7 days but I don't like the idea of having to move luggage and food when staying longer and not having access to my room during the day.

Owner's Response: I'm glad this guest was happy with the views from his units, but sorry he was disappointed with the process of switching units. It may not be clear from the review that I told him BEFORE he made a reservation that I couldn't book his desired dates in single stay. He booked knowing that. I don't know why he assumed that check-in and checkout times wouldn't apply on the switch day. I'll be sure to emphasize that in the future. It is not correct that all reservations longer than 7 nights would require a unit switch. I can and have booked reservations in a single unit as long as 21 nights. If, however, there are only a handful of nights left at an almost sold-out resort, you might not be able to book all of your desired dates unless you're willing to change units.

Beautiful property and wonderful rooms

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here last week with our two daughters (12 and 10). After a hectic and crowded few days in Honolulu the Westin Villas were a paradise! Booking was easy and I got a confirmation right away. Robert provided all of the needed details. Hotel called us about 2 weeks prior to our stay and offered to help with booking activities, etc. Rooms were ready when we arrived. The villas are like two separate hotel rooms, joined by a foyer. Each side has it's own lockable door. The "master" side has a large kitchen, living room (with queen pull out) and walk out balcony that connects to the bedroom, which has a comfy king bed. Master bath has a jacuzzi tub, shower and closable toilet area. Washer/dryer units in both sides (soap for one load included for each unit). Other side has a king bed, pull-out, small kitchen and smaller bathroom. Ample space for the four of us! Resort is beautiful. Big and busy, but did not feel crowded. Lots of amenities, three restaurants and great pools. The beach isn't great, but you can see whales right off the boardwalk. I highly recommend this property!
