While this past year has been a roller coaster ride (insurance, construction, relocating guests, etc.), the GREAT news is that we have a gorgeous NEW kitchen that is updated, upgraded, and ready for your family adventure! As we update our VRBO content, we thought we'd give you the Top 10 Reasons to rent our unit. Here it goes:
#1 - Location, location, location!
#2 - Ocean View and whale sightings in the winter while sitting on the lanai
#3 - Kaanapali Beach Voted #1 in 2003 and 2013 (Yes...it's THAT great.)
#4 - The only beach cabana on any of the islands with full amenities
#5 - Walking distance to just about everything including restaurants, shopping, spas, snorkeling, golf, ocean activities, and more.
#6 - Spacious unit 1400 sq. ft.
#7 - Ground floor with immediate access to 3 swimming pools
#8 - On-site Activity planners to help you plan your Maui excursions
#9 - A condo that feels like you're on vacation in Maui, with all the comforts of home.
#10 - Not ONLY a new kitchen, but new carpeting, a huge TV (that one's for the guys), and new furnishings (that one's for the gals).
Located in the heart of Kaanapali, the Maui Eldorado is a quiet resort just minutes away from one of the best sandy beaches in the world. One of the greatest things about this location is that you can walk to RESTAURANTS, HOTELS, SHOPPING, SPAS, LUAUS, GOLF, and much more. The historic town of Lahaina is only a 10 minute drive and Whaler’s Village Shopping Center is a leisurely 10 minute walk. Choose from one of 3 swimming pools at the Maui Eldorado. One is located just out the front entrance to the condo, while the other is just steps away from the ocean view lanai. The pools are gated and it is never a problem finding available lounge chairs on the pool deck.
Enjoy views of Molokai and the ocean from your very own lanai. In under 10 minutes, you can walk through the Royal Kaanapali North Golf Course to a PRIVATE BEACH CABANA reserved exclusively for Maui Eldorado guests. The cabana is equipped with towel service, a kitchen, shaded lounge area, beach chairs, and restrooms. This unit is an excellent value for the space and quality it offers. It is ideal for large families and/or multiple families who still desire privacy and space. We cordially invite you to this little bit of Heaven on the Island of Maui.
We had enjoyed many trips to Maui when we were a young married couple. Eventually we had children and realized that hotels were not the most economical way to vacation with a young family. We had the opportunity to purchase F104 in 2003 and decided that the timing was right. Since then, we have done extensive upgrades to the property and have experienced the wonderful benefits of property ownership on the island. We are grateful for all of our guests past and present. We hope that you will enjoy our home and all the gorgeous sights and sounds of Maui!
Shanna purchased this condo in 2003
The Kaanapali Resort area ranks #1 in beaches all over the world! We also found this area to have the perfect mix of activities and 'quietude' that we wanted. You can relax for many days by the pool, then jump on boat for fishing or snorkeling the next day.
There are so many things that are within walking distance from our condo. Here are just a few of them: world's best beaches (with cabana), several amazing swimming pools right outside the door, whales spouting on the horizon during migratory season (Nov. - May), restaurants, shopping, boating activities and tours, sugar cane train, convenience store, gas grilles, an amazing corner location, lots of interior space, and more!
I can't express how great this place is. Maui is wonderful but staying at the Eldorado in this unit was amazing. A quick walk to Whaler's Village, an awesome cabana to relax in, and the unit itself is huge and having it open right onto a grassy area for the kids to play made life so easy. Not only that but it was right across from the heated pool so we didn't have to pack up our kid's wordly possessions to have a day in the sun. Kids need snacks?...walk 20 steps to fulfill their needs. Kids melting down and need a nap? Whip home, tuck them in and then lounge in the sun while they dream away. A true vacation! We've stayed in other units at the Eldorado but for a family this one ROCKS!Also, a huge thanks to the owners who were fantastic with checking to see that we were settled and having fun. This is our second year and we are booking for the future. Thanks again for the great vacation. Mahalo! Mahalo! Mahalo!
Great location, great size, tons of beach toys, nice outdoor patio, great TV for those late night movies with the kids, early check in, not far from beach, close to shopping and restaurants, small market within walking distance, great new kitchen with everything you need, large bathrooms, and the owners were great to communicate with. Pools are close - one is closed for construction but other is just out the front door and great for the kids.
The not so good:
Toilet in smaller bathroom would sometimes take a few flushes to flush, the dryer stopped working on the last day, plan on buying your own toilet paper and paper towels if you have a large family as they don't supply extra. I wish you would consider changing this and just go to Kmart or Costco and have a supply for your guest.
Bring the febreze or candles because it is very musty smelling. I am not sure if it was the carpet or the curtains or what but the smell almost knocks you over when you enter the unit.
To me I would furnish paper towels and toilet paper for my guest. You can go to Kmart or Costco and buy and big package and keep
We loved everything about this condo. The pictures provided in the listing certainly don't do it justice, as considerable renovation has been done to the kitchen and living room areas. Brand new kitchen cabinetry and appliances. New flat screen TV in the living room, along with TV's in the two bedrooms. Both bathrooms have huge walk-in showers; one also has a deep, deep bathtub. That bathroom also has a washer/dryer combo. The bedrooms themselves are as large or larger than a hotel room. The condo is just steps away from the main pool, which also has a couple of gas grills and a shuffleboard court along with lots of chairs, lounges, tables with umbrellas. There is also a lanai with lounge chairs and a dining area if you don't want to leave the condo. My wife and I would lay on the lounges at night and just star gaze. The stars seem to be closer and clearer on Maui! The grounds at the Maui Eldorado are quite pretty. The staff maintains the area daily. It is an easy 10 minute stroll from the condo to Ka'anapali Beach. My 81 year old mother walked it every time she went to the beach. Another option is calling the desk for a golf cart ride down to the beach. The cabana attendant can arrange for a ride back to the condo, if needed. What impressed me the most was all of the "little things" that Shanna and Gary provide. Lots of dishes, glasses, pots and pans, and silverware. Beach toys for little kids. Snorkel gear for big kids. Plenty of towels. They also provide Tupperware for leftovers, coolers to take your lunch and drinks down to the cabana. Multiple coffee pots and ironing boards/irons. I know I'm forgetting some things; hopefully this gives a decent overview of the property. I don't know when my next trip to Maui will be, but when I do come back, I will definitely stay here.
We stayed in this unit 3 years ago and where booked to stay again in March. The owners informed us shortly before to let us know there was water damage and we would need to be relocated. The owners helped in finding a new unit at the Maui Eldorado and transferred the booking. They were very apologetic and concerned about our well being. I understand the previous negative comments as I am sure that was the condition of the unit at the time. However, an accident that was no fault of their own does not reflect the true nature of this owner. I found them to be good honest people who were concerned about their guests. I can not comment on the unit post renovations as it was still under repairs but I can say the location is excellent and the Maui Eldorado is fantastic value for your money. We would stay at no other location on Maui.
Our family had booked a stay for next week for this condo, but due to water damage, the condo had to have urgent repairs that would prevent us from staying there. The owners were fantastic in dealing with the situation. Shanna(the owner) let us know right away, and found us another place in the same resort for the same price. She kept us updated with daily emails on the status of obtaining another condo, and responded to all of our emails and questions within a day. Unfortunately, when the replacement condo did not work out due to the owner being out of the country, Shanna stuck with us and made sure we got our funds back. Although we never saw her place, she is the perfect owner to deal with, very positive, very responsive, and a woman of her word. We highly recommend she and her husband!
We arrived on Dec 22, early evening, to find our condo not acceptable. The musty mold/mildew odor was quite apparent and overpowering upon opening the front door to see that there was water on the kitchen floor. Not sure if it was coming from the frig or sink, we called the listed maintenance number with no answer or answering service. This was just the beginning...
The kitchen had a panel missing on the front of the sink looking very much in disrepair, the coffee pot was an electrical hazard, broken dishwasher, stove burners worked minimally or were broken, cockroaches, and no wifi! UGH! No vacation for us!
I was in constant contact with the owner who was making efforts to take care of our complaints although that doesn't make up for the inconvenience of maintenance people, appliance replacement, internet tech, and numerous emails and phone calls during my ‘so called’ vacation. I wouldn't have been so hard on this review if I had thought these were 'new' problems but they obvious were ongoing issues that hadn't been dealt with and now we are inconvenienced on our family vacation at 'our' expense. After 5 days, REALLY!, 6 people and no dishwasher wasn't cool! We ‘paid’ dearly…if you know what I mean! Cockroaches!!! How clean does that feel?
I would not recommend this condo to others.
This condo smells awful. We were literally worried about breathing the air because of visible black mold on the ceiling near the AC unit and in the cupboards near all the sinks. The location was great and this is the only reason I'm giving it 2 stars and not 1. There are stains on the carpets. The owner was good about communication. I would not recommend anyone stay in this unit until it is thoroughly cleaned and the mold is removed.
Kaanapali is a resort area that appeals to a wide range of interests. For those who love outdoor activities, there is snorkeling, hiking, tennis, golf, zip-lines, etc. For people who love spa treatments and shopping, there are also many options within walking distance. This is a highly desirable location for returning travelers as well as first time visitors to the island. You will not be disappointed with what Kaanapali has to offer!
