Overview

About the property

Villa, 2 Bedrooms Fully remodeled + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, Sleeps 4-6)

This family owned home features hand carved furniture & fantastic, 180 degree ocean views to Molokai. The remodel, completed in 2012, includes granite counter tops, tile floors, new appliances, & air conditioning.

The two separated bedrooms each have a king-sized bed & adjoining expansive bathrooms. The master bedroom boasts a a small wall safe for your valuables & a separate lanai overlooking the ocean. The views from every window are private & landscaped. The couch makes into a queen-sized bed. The 3rd bathroom, complete with a shower, is accessible to your guests or for those sleeping in the living room. A Graco Pack & Play is available. Three HD TV's, Wifi, Ipod dock, 4 telephones with free long-distance to U.S. and Canada, cable TV, & high speed Roadrunner Turbo internet connection keep you in touch with the world while the plush lanai furniture beckons the visitor to sit back & enjoy the ocean views.

The villa is located next to world class golf courses (The Kapalua, The Bay Course & the world-famous Plantation). All have many breath-taking vistas. As a guest of our villa we can give you a discount on two courses - just ask.

Fine beaches, judged by many as the best in Maui, are minutes away either by the free, door-to-door Kapalua Resort Shuttle; your car; or by walking - Kapalua Beach; D. T. Fleming Beach; Napili Bay; Oneloa Beach, Honolua Bay & the adjoining Mokule'ia (or Slaughterhouse) Beach.

At the end of a short cul-de-sac this front row villa has panoramic views of the ocean & the island of Molokai. In season whale watching from the lanai is a MUST (with an owner provided telescope and binoculars). Although located just minutes from Lahaina the villa is situated in a lavishly landscaped & peaceful setting. This end of the island benefits from the Trade Winds which you will find are very welcome!

It's a short walk to the nearest Association pool with well maintained BBQ's & a covered, outdoor kitchen area (includes oven, stove, refrigerator, microwave, tables & chairs). Around the corner is the Ritz Carlton with its fine restaurants & amenities. Groceries stores are also convenient - the closest (walking distance for some) boasts an espresso bar, fresh vegetables & fine meats. Next door to that is 'The Sansei', advertised as Maui's best sushi restaurant. There are two excellent spas nearby (the Ritz Carlton and the Montage Spa).

This spacious one-level home has been in our family for more than 25 years. In 2011 Richard & Joan (& families) purchased it from our Father's estate & began the update/remodel of the entire unit. We hope that you will enjoy your memories of vacations in Maui. We welcome you to our home.

About Dennis & Joan

Richard Lowry & Joan Hartsough were siblings. They both were married and retired. Richard & Jeri have three children & one grandson. Richard's family lives in Vancouver in Washington State. He was an avid collector of antique furniture which he refinished in his garage (The Midbro Workshop).

Joan & Dennis live in Anderson in northern California on about 2 acres. They have 5 children & 7 grandchildren in addition to two dogs, 4 chickens, a cat, a vegetable garden & assorted fruit trees.

Maui is a labor of love for both families - a living tribute to our parents/grandparents who loved Hawaii since being stationed there in the early 1950's. Our folks purchased this villa in the early 1990's. Richard passed away in February 2012. The last year of his life he was excited about remodeling the villa & bringing his family back to Maui for vacations.

Dennis & Joan purchased this villa in 2011

Why Dennis & Joan chose Lahaina

Joan & Richard's father was career Navy - we moved about every 4 years. In the early 1950's our dad was stationed in Pearl Harbor & thus was born the family's love of the Hawaii Islands. At that time shots were required to visit to the Islands & we made the trip by military transport ships. To this day Richard & Joan still prefer flip-flops to shoes!.

After their retirement our folks wintered in Maui & eventually purchased this condo. All of their friends, children, in-laws, & grandchildren visited whenever possible. When our parents died we were determined to keep the villa to continue the tradition of family vacations & to share the experience with you.

After extensive remodeling we hope you will enjoy your visit with us. We have used the villa as a base to visit the other islands; taken every kind of whale watching boat; seen the sun rise over Haleakala Volcano; snorkeled; bicycled; eaten fresh pineapple in the fields; sampled many great restaurants; seen amazing shows; visited all of the tourist spots & spent money in most of the stores. Each experience was enjoyable, But our favorite thing to do in Maui is nothing. We sit on the lanai with a good book & a cold drink hoping to stay here forever.

What makes this villa unique

The view to Molokai is spectacular. The Ridge is beautifully landscaped and our 4-plex villa is secluded from the other buildings. We enjoy our unique privacy from every window; the wind in the palm trees & sound of the waves on Oneloa Bay. There's a fine walking trail along the shoreline connecting 5 of the Kapalua beaches just below the villa. Stores & restaurants, golf & swimming are convenient. This location, outside of Lahaina, is quiet, cooler, & restful.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you. Our family - which included my husband, three children (ages 9 7 and 4 yrs), and myself - had a fantastic vacation in Maui! Your villa surpassed our expectations. It had everything we needed and plenty of space - it was very comfortable. We enjoyed the condo pool - several times - this was a huge hit with the children. We also spent time exploring the local beaches. Oneloa Bay was great for boogie boarding (and the boggie boards in the condo were terrific!). We also spent a few days at Kapalua Beach - this was hands down our favorite beach - great for snorkeling, plenty of rocks to climb. We rented a paddleboard from Boss Frogs (paddle boards on the beach were $40/hour. Boss Frogs in Napili Stripmall rented paddleboards for $50/day!). The kids loved this beach - waves were perfect, not too windy - absolutely the best. We also went to J. T. Fleming Beach and Honolua Bay - and saw turtles in both places. Overall we had a great beach, snorkeling, swimming and paddle/boogie board vacation. The kids cannot wait to return to Maui.

A wonderful and memorable stay!

  • 5 of 5

We made last minute plans to visit a friend in Maui who lives near Kapalua. When we visit Maui, we usually stay in Wailea or Lahaina but decided to look for a place closer to my friend. Well we just discovered the most perfect place to stay on Maui!! The condo is located on a ridge with breathtaking views of the ocean and Molokai in a beautiful community between The Ritz and The Montage resorts. It is steps away from the Kapalua Coastal Trail where I walked every morning and enjoyed watching the incredible surf and saw lots of sea turtles. The condo is also located next to two of the most beautiful beaches in Maui, Oneloa Bay and DT Fleming’s. Oneloa Bay is a short 3-4 minute walk from the condo and Fleming’s is about 5-7 minutes further by the Ritz. Not only are these beaches spectacular, they are less crowed than the beaches in Wailea or Ka’anapali. If you are looking for a more peaceful and relaxing Maui vacation, Kapalua is the place to go.

In addition to the restaurants at both the Ritz and the Montage, there are several other great restaurants within walking distance, including Sansei and Merriman’s. There is also a Honolua store nearby where you can buy anything you might need such as prepared foods, groceries, wine/beer, etc. There are golf courses and hiking trails nearby too. Everything you need is within walking distance from this condo!! It is truly the perfect location and we are so glad we found it!

If the location alone with the stunning views isn't enough to convince you this is the best place to stay on Maui, you’ll definitely be convinced once you enter the condo. It is so beautifully and tastefully decorated, and has every amenity you need. The bedrooms and bathrooms are spacious and well-appointed, and there’s plenty of closet space. The kitchen has everything you need to prepare your meals and the lanai overlooking the ocean is huge enough to dine or just lounge and enjoy the magnificent view!

But to us, the very best thing about renting this amazing condo are the owners. They could not have been easier or more pleasant to work with. They were so incredibly helpful in making sure we had everything we needed. Joan and Dennis, a heartfelt THANK YOU for everything, and for making our trip a truly memorable one, for so many reasons as you know. We can’t wait to come back!!

Absolutely Perfect!!!

  • 5 of 5

Dennis and Joan, your place was absolutely amazing!!

My husband was skeptical about us staying somewhere other than a resort and after he saw the place, he was sold and he told me over and over again how much he enjoyed it more than previous resorts we've stayed at! You put a lot of thought and care into your villa and we couldn't be more grateful! We loved having a washing machine and dryer available in the unit. We loved the beach supplies, ice chests, the spices for cooking, the dishes, extra towels, BBQ supplies, etc...The pool area was also great and we enjoyed celebrating my son's 8th birthday there. The community of Kapalua was absolutely beautiful and if we head back to Maui in the near future, we hope that your place is available, because there is no where else we would rather stay! Thank you again for being so welcoming and for opening your villa to us!

Owner's Response: When you have just one short term vacation rental each guest/person is important to you and you hope that everyone has the same experience that your family had! Everyone has different expectations of what they want their Hawaii vacation to be. When our home can meet (or hopefully exceed) those expectations for you, it makes the time, effort and $$$$ we put into trying to keep the villa in the family a joy. Of course a lot of the success of any vacation is inside our guests. You were perfect - enjoying all that Hawaii can offer. We're so glad to have met you and welcomed you to our home. We look forward to your next visit.

Absolutely beautiful location and condo!

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend this villa! It has two master bedrooms both with large on suites. That was perfect for two couples. The large balcony was so nice. Several people can sit out there with beautiful ocean views and mountains in the distance. The owners are very helpful with things to do on the island. They also made sure we had everything we needed to make our stay the best. I hope I go back to Maui soon and this is where I will stay if it is available.

WONDERFUL visit! Beautiful villa!

  • 5 of 5

After having stayed at Kapalua Ridge numerous times before, We could not have been more pleased with this beautiful villa. From the personalized communication with the owners (Joan is my new BFF !) to all the amenities...there isn't anything that I would change! We surprised our son-in-law with the accommodations and our family created memories that will last a lifetime. There was even a pack 'n play, baby spoons and bowls for our 9-month old grandson!! We were spoiled from the get go. Whomever decides to rent this villa will be very pleased. We can't wait to return someday! ~~The Beall Family

Owner's Response: Your grandson is just as beautiful as you said he was. We loved the photographs of all of you enjoying Maui - it was almost as good as being there ourselves. We're glad that having the baby supplies made the trip easier for mom and grandma. Having you as our guests was as easy as welcoming a good friend to our home. Thank you for taking such good care of the villa and for all of your kind words.

Owner's Response: You were wonderful guests and we appreciate all that you did for us. We love the location also. We always start relaxing the moment we turn on to Office Road and drive through the Bay Golf Course. With the ocean in front of us and the landscaping on both sides, stress seem to fade away. We look forward to your return. Aloha

This beautiful Condo was not only amazing it was sparkling clean upon arrival. There was not a stress in the world that this paradise could not help sooth! I have stayed in may condos at the Ridge as well as visited many while vacationing with multiple families also staying in them, this is my FAVORITE! The communication and the contact with the owners was complete and full of information. Thank you Joan and Dennis, for letting us stay in your home!
