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.

                                                                      Bob A.

Would have enjoyed having a reasonably sized balcony. Had a great partial view of ocean. Would stay again.

                                                                      Perfect Paradise Getaway

                                                                      Tony & Janelle M.La Conner WA USA

                                                                      We want to thank you Barbara for our wonderful stay in your unit 517 at MKV. The 5th floor condo is very well appointed, and has a beautiful view! Gorgeous sunsets, and we could even watch whales from the condo! The artwork and color scheme reminds us of the sea with its blues and greens. Comfy bed too! We do a lot of our own cooking, and the unit has all the tools you need to whip up a great meal. The BBQs at MKV are also very nice, immaculately maintained. MKV sits on one of the best beaches on Maui, with great swimming, snorkeling, and beach walking. The unit comes with chairs and an umbrella which we used a lot! There's also a beautiful pool at MKV, as well as the Castaway restaurant and bar right on the beach. Each morning we walked down the Kaanapali boardwalk to get the day started. Very close by we enjoyed the Fish Market for fresh fish and fish tacos, and Okazuya Asian takeout is outstanding. Also loved going to the Seahouse at Napili Beach for breakfast! LaHaina is just minutes away with all its shops and restaurants, and of course the famous Hula pie at Kimo's. We finally did the road to Hana this year, and that was an unforgettable experience. Again, thanks for sharing your beautiful condo with us, we plan on coming back!

                                                                      Owner's Response:

                                                                      Aloha Tony and Janelle, It sounds like you had another great stay in our Maui condo. Just reading the detailed description of your vacation made me envious that I am not there. We're home enduring the cold weather, and could really use a Mai Tai from Castaway right about now! We look forward to your next trip back! A Hui Hou! Barbara and Howard

                                                                      We love this place!

                                                                      Nancy E.

                                                                      Owner's Response:

We love having you return year after year...probably as much as you enjoy returning! We look forward to your next trip back! A Hui Hou! Barbara & Howard

                                                                      Perfect getaway

                                                                      Jeff H.

Great location with terrific restaurants close by and activities to do. The beach and Castaways right on property make for a wonderful day too. Will definitely be back... soon!

                                                                      Owner's Response:

What a great way to celebrate the Holidays! It's true that the Resort is so convenient to entertainment and shopping, and having the full-service restaurant, Castaway on property makes MKV a true gem. Mahalo, Barbara and Howard


                                                                      colleen r.

                                                                      We have stayed at this property each of the last 4 years and have enjoyed each stay. The condo is clean and restful. Each year we try to do something different including zip-lining, snorkel trips (there are many to choose from), dinner cruises, luaus and more. We have even jumped off the cliff at Black Rock. We enjoy watching the surf competitions on the North Shore and visiting Paia. Mama's Fish House is a must (save some money by skipping a few expensive dinners elsewhere) in order to splurge at Mama's. Try the rubber raft trip to snorkel on Lanai, 6 1/2 hour trip. Fast trip, more snorkeling time! After a full day, it's always awesome to come home to a small, quiet resort. It's not fancy but comfortable. The on-property restaurant, Castaway, is on the beach and has great food and service. So glad that this type of resort is available to those of us who can't afford $600 per night.

                                                                      Owner's Response:

                                                                      Aloha Colleen! How great that you and Mike had another wonderful Maui vacation staying in our condo. The activities and excursions you participate in always raise the bar. (...And, speaking of bars...let's remember that our on-site restaurant, Castaway always serves the most important meal of the day...Happy Hour!!!) We are looking forward to your next adventure-trip back. Until then...A Hui Hou! Barbara & and Howard.

                                                                      This Place is Simply the Best!!!

                                                                      JohnDenver, CO

                                                                      I somewhat hesitate to write this review because I hate to let out what I would like to believe is a well-kept secret. Simply put, Maui Kaanapali Villas (MKV) in general and this unit in particular are THE best bet on all Maui. Lets start with MKV in general. MKV fronts the northern part of Kaanapali Beach--one of the best beaches in the world. The beach offers a dreamy expanse of sand with no rocks, and just about 200 yards or so to the right (or north) begins a very long reef. This reef literally affords some of the best snorkeling my wife and I have ever experienced anywhere on all of Maui! Truly. Best of all, there's hardly anybody on this portion of Kaanapali beach! If you like crowds, then go left (south) around Black Rock and you'll find them! But, if you don't want to share the beach with a vast multitude of your other best friends, you simply can't beat MKV. Even better, the beach is literally a 5 minute stroll from your condo unit. Couple this with a very nice pool and hot tub, and a spacious grassy area fronting the beach that offers shade if you want it (and sun if you don't!), and you have a superb setting for your dream vacation. BTW, if you just want to drop in or visit the southern portion of Kaanapali beach (say to do some shopping or get something to eat at Whalers Village), you can easily stroll there on the ocean beach walk that goes there from MKV, or it is simple and FREE to take the green trolley shuttle that regularly leaves from the front of MKV. Now for the condo unit. First of all, the owner (Barbara) is the most easy and best person on the planet to work with. She has proven over and over to be very helpful and accommodating (for example, she provides a list of suggestions regarding her favorite things to do on the island; and, on this last trip we wanted to include our 13-year grand son as an after thought on our rental--no problem and even better no charge!) The condo has a nice picturesque ocean view and has been recently renovated so it is new and fresh. Best of all is the price! When you look at the price Barbara offers together with the fantastic beach MKV offers, you simply cannot find anything better! My wife and I have been coming to Maui for many years, and our only regret is that we did not discover MKV and this unit sooner! So, mahalo Barbara for another great stay! We hope to see you again next year and many years thereafter! John and Jo.

                                                                      Owner's Response:

I am truly speechless...and that doesn't happen to me very often!...(Just ask Howard!). We look forward to your next trip back! A Hui Hou! Barbara and Howard
