This is one of the finest and largest oceanfront units in the beautiful Kaanapali Shores complex. If you're searching for something extra special, you've just found it. Photos are recent. Highlights include:

* Stunning oceanfront location with a wall-to-wall ocean view

* Steps from the ocean, hot tub & oceanfront pool

* Second pool and hot tub when you tire of the first two

* Gleaming new kitchen with GE Profile stainless steel appliances

* (2) new baths, including an oceanview shower with body jets

* Huge great room with 47" LED HiDef TV

* Italian porcelain tile floors throughout; 2 carpeted bedrooms

* Expansive 15 foot lanai with al fresco dining and lounger

* Shops, restaurant, tennis, health club, salon on site

* Comfortable for two to six people. Ideal for families or couples.

* Last-minute (within 30 days of arrival) specials.

This luxury condo has been completely redone and is the perfect vacation choice for a romantic escape - or for the family trip of a lifetime. We love coming for the relaxation, ocean sounds, and superb snorkeling at four nearby sites (Honolua Bay, Black Rock, Napili Bay, and Kapalua Bay), not to mention the warm people and beautiful views.

Your condominium is attractively furnished, has a new kitchen, a large great room with a sofa/bed, dining for six, and a private lanai featuring new patio furniture. Amenities include central air conditioning and three TVs (a 27" tube in the master bedroom with DVD player, a 42" flat LCD TV in bedroom #2 and a 47" LED TV wall-mounted in the living room, all with lots of great cable TV channels.

The Master bedroom suite also features a floor-to-ceiling wall of windows with a direct oceanfront AND pool view, like the great room. Its bathroom features a walk-in shower with body jets facing the same ocean view!!

Kaanapali Shores is a beachfront hotel resort with dining, shops, activities desk and beautiful grounds spanning two swimming pools, waterfalls, exotic flower gardens and rolling greens. Your accommodations exceed the typical KS suites, most of which have not been completely redone like this one. Your Maui home away from home is bright and expansive (almost 1,100 square feet plus lanai).

It's an opulent, luxurious, oceanfront suite, but with a good measure of practicality (e.g., cook's kitchen, washer/dryer and enough sleeping capacity). Local phone calls are 95 cents; parking is $9 daily; this is a NON-smoking unit.

The Kaanapali Shores (KS) resort is located at the northern end of golden Kaanapali Beach, considered one of the world's best, warmed by the Maui sun and overlooking the islands of Lanai and Molokai. KS is sited between the pink Kaanapali Beach Club pink pyramid and the low-rise Papakea Resort.

Your unit has the coveted, Oceanfront view that also overlooks the main swimming pool and KS's Beach Club Restaurant (yummy food and very reasonable prices by Maui standards). The complex has a beautiful lobby and walking paths for your pleasure.

Across the street is a shopping center including Times Supermarket, the "Best Coffee in Maui" cafe, Pizza Paradiso, Subway, a video/DVD rental store, and Soup Nutz's superb fresh soups. John and Justin Brunold, our father and son on-island managers, will check you in and cater to your needs while on island.

The view from your Lanai includes a spectacular show of humpback whales from December through April. The sites are everchanging - with sailboats, cruise ships, snorkelers, sea turtles, and sunbathers. Across the ocean lies the island of Molokai, where sunrise is glorious to behold from the comfort of bed, or over a fresh cup of Kona coffee on your private lanai.

Maui No Ka Oi means "Maui is the best" - quite fitting for the beautiful vacation you will have in your Kaanapali home away from home.

Fantastic Week

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a fabulous week vacation, this is the place. I would stay here again. The owners keep in contact with you. Our party was 4 adults and this was very comfortable for all of us. Nice location, and right no the beach. I would stay here again.

Fantastic Week

  • 5 of 5

We had a super time the week we spent in Mauii. The condo was very comfortable, clean and the view is spectacular. We enjoyed being able to make breakfasts, lunches and snacks. Everything we needed to cook was available. The beds were comfortable as is the sofa. We all enjoyed the TV's when inside. I would be happy to stay in this condo again. We (4 adults) enjoyed the pool and the restaurant. All in all it was a wonderful week. No complaints, here.

KS 359 - A Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Hi Ely,

On behalf of Chuck, Harriet, Nora and myself, I want to thank you for making our lodging arrangements at Ka'anapali Shores (359) so easy and comfortable. As I had read in the other reviews so many months ago, you are a master at maintaining open and regular communication. In addition, the condo not only met, but exceeded our expectations. It was clean, well equipped and exactly what we had wanted. Monty was great - he responded quickly with the one small maintenance issue that occurred during our stay.

We will look forward to our next opportunity to arrange for a stay on Maui.

Sons wedding

  • 5 of 5

My son chose Maui for his wedding and I had the good fortune to happen upon this property. From the beginning I could not have been more pleased with the courtesy and professionalism. Upon arrival we were greeted by a representative for the property who was helpful in every way possible. The property was in excellent condition, the location in the complex could not have been more perfect. My son's wedding on the beach was exquisite to say the least. My wife and I have reflect on this vacation with the fondest of memories and will return.

Happy Nebraskan

  • 5 of 5

The condo was perfect! My family couldn't believe their eyes when we opened the door. Everyone at Kaanapali Shores was very accommodating. We utilized all the amenities that were available. Ely is very easy to deal with and the condo was all it was represented to be and more. I could not give a higher recommendation for Ely or his condo. Wish I was there right now.
