About the property

Spacious One Bedroom, Two Bath Condo Close To The Beach

Originally built in the 1960's as the Maui Hilton, Maui Kaanapali Villas is a unique oceanfront condominium resort set in 11 acres of lush, beautifully manicured tropical gardens on one of the world's best beaches. This spacious setting allows for an uncrowded, relaxing atmosphere where you won't have to worry about finding a chaise at one of the two pools or on the beachfront lawns.

Unlike many of the other VRBO listings at Maui Kaanapali Villas, this condo is operated as a part of the Aston Maui Kaanapali Villas resort. This means that the condo meets Aston's high standards as a premium condo, and you have all the resort amenities, including daily housekeeping, and access to front desk services 24/7. And you don't have to pay check-in or cleaning fees, or a security deposit.

Your accommodations include a king bed in the loft-style bedroom, and two full bathrooms with showers. There is a fully equipped kitchen, spacious living and dining areas, and a large, private lanai, sheltered by West Maui's most majestic breadfruit tree, for those times when you want to just sit and relax in the balmy climate, and enjoy the garden view and glimpse of the ocean. For the times when you do need to be connected, free high-speed Internet service is available in the unit (both wired and wireless), and wirelessly throughout the property. There are flat-screen televisions in the living area and bedroom.

There are two lovely swimming pools on the property, the larger situated near the beach, and a smaller pool in the Banyan-Coconut Courtyard area. Two barbecue grills are situated near the unit, and there are shuffleboard courts near both pools.

Kaanapali Beach is usually listed among the top ten beaches in the world, and this property sits right on the best part of Kaanapali Beach. If you walk directly toward the surf from our lawn, you will experience smooth, pristine white sand extending well out into the ocean, ideal for swimming, body surfing, paddle boarding or kayaking. Walk South for a few hundred yards to the Black Rock, or North a few hundred Yards to the Kahekili Beach Park, and you'll find extensive coral formations that are great for snorkeling and admiring the tropical fish (but a bit hard on bare feet in the surf). The oceanfront Beach Shack offers rentals of everything you might need for ocean activities.

For those occasions when you don't feel like cooking or going off the property to dine, the Castaway Cafe is a great casual option on property for breakfast, lunch or dinner, right on the ocean, ideal for a sunset cocktail and whale watching in season.

We have been coming to Maui Kaanapali Villas since 1975, and first bought a condo here in 1983. We purchased this unit in 1989 and have remodeled it extensively. We love the low-key atmosphere, the beautiful setting, and the many friends we have made here.

average rating of 5.0 based on 5 reviews

Beautiful property! Exquisite decor very inviting. Perfect for our vacation.

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed in this unit at the MKV. It's beautiful and so inviting. The condo is beautifully decorated. It's just perfect and set up so nicely. We love the loft bedroom and having two bathrooms in the unit is such a plus. The location is perfect close to everything. We enjoyed being so close to the ocean and the pools on the property are wonderful as well. It's a hidden gem for sure. We love the MKV it's quiet and feels like home. We wouldn't stay any where else when we visit Maui. The snorkeling is great right on the beach in front of the condo. We loved taking evening walks on the boardwalk so relaxing. There is a free trolley that will take you to whalers village to shop and picks you up at the resort lobby we loved not having to drive and worry about parking while we shopped. Looking forward to our next trip to Maui and staying in this unit again. We would highly recommend booking this unit.

Very nice condo. New main bath downstairs and great kitchen...everything we needed right there. The loft with king size bed upstairs was great. People with first floor units have to sleep in the living loft. Not a problem here. And second bath upstairs was great. Super location for privacy, quiet and convenience. Large breadfruit tree shades lanai so we could sit out there and not be blasted by too much sun in later afternoon. And super service from house keeping and Aston in general. Highly recommended.

Perfect Studio Condo on Maui's Best Beach

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I stayed in this studio for 2 weeks Feb/Mar 2015. It is a perfect studio condo for 2 people. The unit is well equipped and furnished. It felt like home. It has everything including an ice maker for making perfect martinis. The upstairs loft which has the bedroom and an ensuite makes the unit extra spacious and frees up the living area for enjoying the views and tropical breezes on the lanai, watching TV, reading or dining. The main bathroom is tastefully decorated. And having 2 bathrooms is so convenient. The resort is immaculate, beautiful and well cared for. The resort restaurant/bar is excellent and handy for having a drink at the pool or for picking something up for dinner to take back to the unit. The owner is very helpful and easy to reach. We look forward to returning next year. Highly recommend this unit. Cannot wait to stay there next year.

Relax in comfort

  • 5 of 5

Having stayed several times at Kaanapali Villas in various units, this is, by far, our favorite. The attention to detail in the beautiful furnishings was outstanding. The two bathrooms were especially convenient. Having morning coffee on the lanai was very peaceful. I would recommend this second level unit and intend to request it for our next visit.

First Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The owner, Paul, was very helpful in securing the dates for our trip and made the whole process very simple. This was our first trip to Maui with our six month old daughter. The accommodations suited our needs perfectly with the loft area providing the extra room we needed when our daughter was napping. The unit was fully stocked with everything you needed and more. We would highly recommended this unit to other travellers, and would consider staying here again when we return to Maui.

Owner's Response: We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay. Maui Kaanapali Villas is a great place for kids, and we hope you will enjoy it with your daughter on another visit.
