About Barbara Rubin
Our family has been vacationing at Maui Ka'anapali Villas for over 25 years. Our daughters, Emily and Dori grew up on this beach swimming, snorkeling, and hunting for beach glass. Our best vacation memories are of days spent here. We feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity to buy our condo, and we look forward to sharing our joy with you.
Barbara Rubin purchased this Condo in 2012
Why Barbara Rubin chose Kaanapali
We have loved this resort property for many years. The beach is pristine and uncrowded, and the water is crystal clear and warm. We boast the best snorkeling reef on Maui which stretches 1 1/2 mile north. Our grounds feature 11 acres of tropical landscaping offering a spacious feeling of low density living.
What makes this Condo unique
Growing up in Southern California, we always loved playing in the ocean. We fell in love with our resort the first time we visited. When we arrive, we kick our shoes off, don our swimsuits, grab our snorkels, and away into the sea we go!

Great Time, Great Place To Stay
We had a great time & pots and pans were provided in condo which made life easier. Nice view from little patio. Pool and spa is great and so is the restaurant that the villas has on site. We will be returning. Everything was clean as well. The trolley was awesome, took us to whalers village and black rock beach ( our favorite spots ) so driving was not needed. Thank you for an amazing trip.
We could not have asked for a better location for our honeymoon! Steps from the beach! The resort supplies all the beach and pool towels, they have amazing poolside service and everything you’ll need. The unit itself is good. We were a bit disappointed that there wasn’t more of a lanai to sit on. It’s very narrow but still nice. From some of the photos it looks like there is a washer and dryer but there isn’t and unfortunately for us, the resort laundry facility was being remodeled while we were there. The beach chairs provided were full of sand and water not cleaned out by the last people to use them. We made sure they were clean for the next guests. Another disappointment was the small cooler that was provided. It had mold and was unusable so we had to buy our own.
Overall this is a great unit and resort with good amenities and a location that is amazing. I would recommend it and possibly stay again although traffic in Lahaina is horrible so we might stay in Kihei next time. Barbara is fantastic to work! Thank you again for an unforgettable vacation!!!
Aloha Michelle, Congratulations on your marriage! It sounds like you had an amazing honeymoon at our Resort. We agree that with the Resort being situated directly on the most pristine beach on Maui, our guests enjoy the convenience of an uncrowded, easy sandy entrance to the warm, tropical water. This is the first that I've learned that the laundry facility is under construction. I have notified management that I was not informed so that I could alert my guests. Thanks for bringing it to my attention. I have also contacted my maid service, which typically does an incredible job. I was also disappointed to learn how you found the beach equipment that we supply for our guests. They have promised to make sure these items are inspected at each cleaning. Mahalo, Barbara & Howard
Comfortable and Convenient
The condo is very convenient to shops and restaurants, also the ocean ( of course )!
We enjoyed the comfortable bed and appreciated the friendly staff. Castaway Cafe on property did not disappoint, once again the convenience is soooo nice.
Aloha Jane and David, It's wonderful that you enjoyed another Maui vacation in our condo. Your return visits are very special to us, and we try to maintain consistency so that every time you stay, you feel like you're "coming home" again! We look forward to your next trip, and hope that we will be on-Island with you one day soon. We're looking forward to a Kedema rematch on the beach. A Hui Hou Our Good Friends! Barbara and Howard
Great property and owners are wonderful
Aloha Bob! Another wonderful stay in our Maui condo for you! We look forward to your next trip back. Until then, may your hearts be warmed by Maui memories. A Hui Hou! Barbara & Howard
Aloha Kelly and Jeff! From your texts and photos, it sure looked like your family had a fun Maui Holiday vacation. We look forward to your next trip back! A Hui Hou! Barbara & Howard
Nice location with a beautiful ocean view
Mahalo Barbara for sharing your home with us. We had a great time. Just the perfect family vacation we were looking for. The view from the condo is nice. Also it is stocked with basic stuff that is very handy including kitchenware, beach chairs, umbrellas, some snorkeling gear and boogie boards etc. Though we had carried our own gear. There is WiFi and the Sony player that was handy to play some music on YouTube with a glass of wine :). Easy beach access. The condo is right on the "Beach Walk" that goes from the Westins on one end to the Whalers Village on the other. Walk to the Black Rock is quick 15 minutes. MKV provides beach towels. Nice swimming pool and Jacuzzi. We have stayed in MKV in the past and over all we love this place. We will be back for sure :)
Aloha and Happy New Year Anand! Thanks for emailing us the terrific photo you took from the condo of our ocean view. Just looking at it makes us wish that we were there right now! We agree that the Resort is conveniently located to shopping and restaurants either by walking the Beach Boardwalk or riding the Free Green Ka'anapali Trolley that makes a continuous loop from our lobby to the larger hotels south of Black Rock. We take great pride in stocking our condo for your needs, and are pleased that you were able to take advantage of all the amenities during your Holiday stay. Mahalo, Barbara and Howard
