About Jenelle and Reno Morella

Why Jenelle and Reno Morella chose Kaanapali
One of our long term goals was to own a vacation property. When the time was right, our connection to Hawaii made that the place to search. We looked on the big island of Hawaii, then on Maui. We started with Kihei (south Maui) but then refocused or search on West Maui. We were getting close! We looked at several properties and just happened to find Papakea. As soon as we walked on the property, we felt it was the place for us. The ocean front location, lush landscaping and tidy buildings provided the feel we were looking for without the hustle and bustle of huge resort. Our search was over!

Amazing ocean front view
Overall we really loved the condo! One thing that would be a great improvement would be a bistro height table and chairs on the. Lanai... so you don’t have to look through the railing while sitting our there.
My husband and I and our son spent 4 days here and the only problem is it wasn't long enough. The whales were amazing and the owners were so nice to have their binoculars available to use. We watched the turtles with our coffee every morning. This location is within walking distance to Times grocery and a great bathing suit shop :) We really enjoyed the grounds and the BBQ's were awesome! Very clean location and the AC worked great but unfortunately didn't really get to the back bedroom but we decided to leave it off and enjoy the breeze :) Thank you to our host. Janelle was super responsive! Thanks again Janelle we had a great time!
Just got back from a week in paradise! The Morella's condo was wonderful and very comfortable. The view from the lanai is amazing! A place to sit each night with a cocktail, watch the whales and the breathtaking sunsets. Love the Papakea location...sightseeing, restaurants and shopping are all so accessible...not to mention my children able to walk each morning for the best coffee on the planet at Bad Ass coffee! The grounds are lovely...wonderful pool, hot tub, gas grills and plenty of chaise lounge chairs to get some sun. Have already recommended this condo to my son's girlfriends family! Thanks for sharing your delightful home!
We are always happy to hear our guests enjoyed their time on Maui and especially the time in our Maui home! Thank you so much for taking the time to write your lovely review. And thank you for the coffee tip!

Perfect Hawaiian Holiday
When I read that you could watch the whales from this oceanfront property, I didn't realise it meant hundreds of whales swim past, everyday! I could spend an entire morning, with a cup of tea, just watching those magnificent creatures splash, spout and play. The apartment is beautifully maintained, comfortable and clean. Jenelle was a pleasure to deal with and the resort staff were friendly and helpful. The location is fantastic - just a short drive to restaurants, shops and turtles. I hope to return and will be recommending this holiday home to friends and family. Mahalo, Jenelle, for an effortless, refreshing vacation.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write this lovely review! It is always so nice to hear our guests enjoyed their stay and enjoyed their time on Maui.
Great view, very nice condo. The lot's steps were narrow and steep, difficult for elderly to get up and down.
Stunning views from the lanai of this ocean front condo.
Enjoyed our time at this condo with another couple. The views are fantastic from the lanai. The condo is well maintained and met the needs for the four of us. Definitely recommend this condo for comfort and views. Able to watch whales, surfers and the sunset from the lanai.
We are so happy you enjoyed your stay! Mahalo!
