About Barbara Rubin

Our family has been vacationing at Maui Ka'anapali Villas for more than 25 years. Our daughters, Emily and Dori grew up on this stretch of beach, swimming, snorkeling, and hunting for beach glass. Our best memories are of the fun we had playing in the water and relaxing at this resort. We are grateful that we had the opportunity to buy a studio condo at MKV. We're excited to share it with you and your family, so that you may also make your own memories at this glorious place in the sun.

Barbara Rubin purchased this condo in 2011

Why Barbara Rubin chose Kaanapali

Maui Ka'anapali Villas is maintained and managed by Aqua-Aston Resorts. Each condo is privately owned, and the owners take great pride in the property. Every detail is considered so that our guests will enjoy their stay at this most beautiful resort.

What makes this condo unique

There is no better beach on Maui as far as our family is concerned. The water is pristine and warm. The clean, white sand offers a gentle entry into the ocean for swimming or snorkeling at the adjacent reef, which stretches 1 1/2 miles north. Walk on the boardwalk or beach, swim, or take the Free Green Ka'anapali Beach Trolley, 1/2 mile south to snorkel at Black Rock.

Best place on Maui

  • 5 of 5

Thank-you again Barbara for the wonderful condo, we loved everything. The condo is always so immaculately clean and well stocked with dishes, beach chairs, umbrella etc. The resort as usual lived up to their great standards, very friendly and helpful staff, free coffee in the morning and mai tai party on Wednesdays (not to be missed.) We have stayed in other MKV properties but your condo is our favorite by far, and the best deal on Maui. We will back next year for sure. First time visitors staying here will soon realize what a great deal they have on the best spot in west Maui. Thank-you for making the rental process so easy

Ideal place in paradise

  • 5 of 5

This was our third time at MKV, and second time in this unit. We absolutely love MKV and #317.

First of all, MKV. The grounds are beautiful. The beach, while public like all beaches are, is only used by MKV guests, so it is not crowded at all. It is all sand, no rocks or coral to worry about (the coral is about 100 yards north for snorkeling). And the sunsets from the beach are second to none! It is an easy free trolly ride to Whaler’s village, or a 1 mile walk on the beach walk, for dinners and shopping. The entire place is very nice, but not the over the top elegance that makes you uncomfortable. The staff is all super friendly and will remember your name (be sure to send our aloha to Joe and Francis). MKV is quiet and relaxed, yet so close to everything.

The unit itself (#317) is a studio. The lanai is narrow, but you open up the wide sliding glass doors, and it is fine. You do have some ocean view. There is a wall of mirrors, which both makes the unit feel bigger, and also provides you with ocean views no matter which way you face. It has black out drapes and a king bed, which being a light sleeper I appreciated. There is a nice dressing room adjacent to the bathroom, which is a nice bonus as the mirror doesn’t get fogged up. The unit comes with everything you need, including snorkel and fins, boogi boards, beach chairs, and a small cooler.

Like the MKV, the unit is not fancy, but it is very comfortable. It is great for a couple, or even a family with a small child. It is a studio, so no separate bedroom. It comes fully stocked with coffee maker (and one day of coffee), tea pot, toaster, blender, pitchers, hair dryer, and all of the kitchen stuff. There was nothing we needed there other than groceries.

To top it off, Barb (the owner of this property) is really fun and easy to work with.

I absolutely recommend this place with no hesitation. I can’t wait to go back. Do yourself a favor and book now. Aloha!

Perfect location, resort was great

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Barbara for sharing your beautiful place with us. It was perfect for my wife, daughter and I. Everything we needed the condo already had in it waiting for us. One place to add to your list of place to go in Lahina, Down the Hatch. Great food.
