About the property

0 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps 4

We are excited to provide a luxury experience for our guests. Banyan 132 is surrounded by an attractive planter and plumeria tree and overlooks an expansive park-like grassy area. Twenty steps from the back door is one of two pools and a jaccuzzi. The ocean and a second larger pool are 200 steps away.. You can sit on our lanai for a sunset Mai Tai or walk along the beach any time. There is an Outdoor Grilling area within steps of your lanai.

The kitchen is state-of-the-art with all the utensils to prepare gourmet meals and the on-property Castaway's Restaurant is a minutes walk over to ocean view breakfasts and beach dinners.

The shower with inlaid tile and hand held nozzle is the perfect ending to a swim and relaxation. The king size bed is appointed with quality linens for your comfort. There are stainless steel outdoor grills close by.

Often, time on your own lanai is the order of the day with dinner and wine in the quiet of the evening.

About Judith Kent (owner)

We are two retired psychoanalysts from Newport Beach California and while already owning a two bedroom condo in the resort we have longed for a smaller place to provide an elegant cosy retreat for ourselves and our guests.

Judith Kent (owner) purchased this condo in 2014

Why Judith Kent (owner) chose Lahaina

We have been coming to Maui Kaanapali Villas for 15 years and consider it the gem of the Kaanapali Coast. It is quiet, classy, intimate and friendly. The swimming beach is pure sandy joy and snorkeling is 400 yards up the beach. I love to start each day with a power walk on the oceanfront board walk where young and old, alike and sauntering or jogging. When you are through you can just drop into the ocean and cool off. Our condo has a corner location allowing a light bright interior, while the lanai has a lovely hedge and shade for all day sitting.

What makes this condo unique

I think Maui Kaanapali Villas is unique among the rental opportunities along Kaanapali Beach. The beach varies up the coast and while some resorts offer high rise ocean views, the beach in front of their resort is often not swimmable. Currents, coral, rock and windy areas make the beach experience less enjoyable. MKV has a pure sandy clear beach up and down inviting a hands on experience of the warm inviting waters of Maui. Where ever you are on the property you are never far from the views and sand of the ocean. You can dine next to the water at Castaways, or relax with a drink at the double pool or poolside bar. The Resort creates an atmosphere of friendly welcome, while allowing one to find quiet and solitude when desired.

Fantastic location, perfect amenities

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this unit. Literally a 30 second walk to an awesome pool/hot-tub and a 1 minute walk to a perfect beach. The unit is outfitted with great amenities (central air, quiet fan, smart TV, top-notch kitchen appliances). We had a wonderful stay and would come back in a heartbeat.

Owner's Response: I have attempted as the owner of this property to contact this person, by phone and by e-mail and he does not respond. I have absolutely no idea what his problem was with our studio and i am sorry that he has given such a review without communicating with me as an owner to understand his issue so that I could take it into consideration. Please do not let this reflect more than something personal to him of which I have no knowledge.

Beautiful studio apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here from 12/25/2016 to 12/29/2016. Its a very nice apartment. Well maintained. I like the decor and the upgraded kitchen. We are family of four and used the sofa bed which was quite comfortable. This is a studio - has enough space for two adults and two kids (probably it would be too crowded for 4 adults). There were enough sheets blankets, pillows for everyone. The kitchen had everything we needed - tea, coffee, soap, utensils, paper towel. There were beach chairs, beach towels, even snorkeling gear in the closet. outdoor patio and seating is nice. The resort has many trees, flowering bushes, coconut trees.

The resort is by the beach - this condo is Not beachfront - but the beach is only 1-2 min walk. We walked to the beach near sunrise time- it was very beautiful that time.

There is a store in the reception building where you can by stuff like cereals, medicine, wine, liquor, souvenirs. There is a restaurant by the beach in this resort, we had dinner here one night and it was great!

The location is in the northwest corner of the island, so slightly far from Hana, Haleakala, but a day trip is easily done. 10-12 min drive from Lahaina. You can take "Beach walk" pathway to Whalers village - thats a nice walk.

Overall a very good property definitely recommended!
