Fabulous Time at Kaanapali Shores

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our stay in this condo and we couldn't be happier. We had never used VRBO but Melanie answered all of our questions and helped made sure everything went smoothly.

The unit is in great condition with beautiful new carpets, there is plenty of room for a family with three children and there is a beautiful view of the grounds and ocean. We have stayed at Kaanapali Shores before and have always been happy with the grounds and amenities. My kids love the pools, tennis courts and big open grass areas to play in.

I would definitely stay in this condo again.

Great Condo

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from 10 days on Maui, and were really pleased with the accommodations in this condo.

The unit was spacious and spotless, and had a beautiful view. We didn't cook much, but we could have -

the kitchen has everything you would need. We spent a lot of time on the lanai, which was large and comfortable. The location was central to all the sightseeing and excursions we took.

We would highly recommend this condo.

This condo resort was in great condition and provided all of our needs! We didn't spend much time inside but it was very clean & furnished with everything from cookware, washer & dryer, Excellent AC, iron & ironing board, beach accessories such as surf boards ect.... The grounds at Kaanapoli Shores are immaculate with a great beach front! Me, my husband & daughters was on the beach, in the pool and hot tub the days we were not on an excursion. This condo is a five minute drive away from Lahaina which is a great place to go for shopping at a very reasonable price! There you will find great restaurants and souvenir shops. I advise you to rent a car except you're going to stay at the resort the whole time. Even if you don't rent a car there is a grocery store,restaurants,ice cream shops & a clinic right across the street from this resort. Melanie was GREAT!!! She was very informative and went above and beyond to meet our needs! She kept correspondence with us from the beginning of booking the trip until the very end of our trip! On our day of departure our flight was cancelled due to a gas leak. Therefore, we needed somewhere to stay because all the hotels were booked. After texting Melanie regarding the situation she actually called me back within minutes & extended to us a complimentary one day stay until our flight details were worked out! Me & my family truly appreciated her concern and generosity toward us! I will recommend this condo to all of my family and friends! We will be back! Thank you very much we had a great time!!!

Beautiful Condo

  • 5 of 5

One of my children and their family had the pleasure of staying in this condo for 10 days in February. The unit was clean and well stocked. The location is perfect for all activities, whether onsite or offsite. As there were two other siblings and mom and dad there, we had plenty of room for family dinners for 12 people. We look forward to another opportunity to rent this condo. Their two daughters when riding the elevator and pushing PH were asked what PH stood for. There reply: "pretty high" Would not hesitate recommending this condo.

wonderful accommodations

  • 5 of 5

This condo was very clean. The kitchen provided us everything we could have possibly needed for our stay. Towels were plush, and the bedding nice. Snorkel gear, booggie boards and an ice cooler were provided also. The bedrooms were a nice size as well as the bathrooms. Closets were large, plenty of room for hanging cloths. An iron and ironing board, fan, hair dryer and sunscreen were a nice surprise for a vacation rental. The towels for the pool were great and free with the curtsey card provided during check-in. Two nice pools and a larger hot tub located close by. The veranda had a great view of the ocean, allowing us to watch the whales from where we sat. There were three T.V.'s, both in the bedrooms and one in the family room. I packed a few detergent pods for the washer which I used twice. Very pleased with all of the amenities. We stopped by Costco outside of the airport which we understand most visitors do for grociers. Great Hawaiian shirts and the pineapple wine was great. Parking was wonderful, we never had difficulty finding a spot to park. We also enjoyed the Expedia presentation in the lobby. The representative provided us with a lot of information about the island and things to do, places to explore. She did not try to sell us anything, just showed the offers Expedia had and the general prices you may expect to see when booking an excursion. I would recommend this 1 hour presentation. It is not a time share thing. They don't care if you book through them or not. I think this condo was worth the price of our stay. We saved money by eating breakfast and dinner there, again the kitchen had everything we needed. A few spices were left in the cabinet. Location of the property was good. All in all I would not hesitate staying here again.

Perfect vacation for our family of four.

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Kaanapali Shores again. This is our second time on this resort but first time renting with Melanie. The condo had great views of the pool and gardens below but the most impressive was the whale watching right from our lanai while we sipped our morning coffee. We have two young sons and this property was perfect for families. The owner of our condo had everything we needed available to us. Boogie boards, sand toys and beach chairs and umbrella where part of our condo. We explored different beaches everyday and returned to the condo for dinner at our leisure. With kids it was just easier to eat in them take them out frequently. Melanie had all the cooking utensils and supplies one would need to make a meal for a family. With Times grocery literally across the street, last minute meal decisions were a breeze.

The staff at Kaanapali shores were just fabulous as well. They were so friendly and helpful. It really felt like a home away from home. It was very hard to return to our Manitoba winter.

Thank you Melanie for a most relaxing and memorable stay.
