About Susan

Troy is a commercial beekeeper in CA and works with 1800 hives. Susan is a retired children's pastor. After retiring she was "sucked" into the bee business and now works with Troy. They hope to retire in the next few years so they are able to spend more time in Maui as well as with family and helping with various ministries of their church. They live on 10 acres with their dog, Josie, and miniature donkeys. When they are in Maui they enjoy scuba-diving, hiking, visiting with new friends found at MKV and relaxing on our never-crowded beach.

Susan purchased this condo in 2015

Why Susan chose Lahaina

We began going to Maui in 1990 with our 2 children and always rented a friends condo at Maui Kaanapali Villas. When we decided to buy a condo not much was available at MKV so we looked around the area but came to the conclusion that there is nothing like MKV out there. We love the old Hawaiian feel as well as the quiet, spacious feel at the resort. It is low-density which we really appreciate and you just can't beat that sandy beach and view!

What makes this condo unique

There is not another resort like Maui Kaanapali Villas on Kaanapali Beach. It is low density, only 260 units on 12 acres, and has that old Hawaiian feel you just don't find anywhere else. The pools and beach are never crowded - no need to get out there at 6 am to save a lounge chair! And we have met nothing but nice people there! The boardwalk is great for walking north to a grocery store (about a mile) or south 1 mile to Whaler's Village. There is also a free trolley that picks up at our lobby and takes you around the Kaanapali area.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The unit was spectacular! When we walked in we were greeted by a room much bigger than we anticipated. The unit in pristine condition and immaculately clean. The closet was stocked with everything you would need to go out to the beach. Had a great Tommy Bahama beach umbrella and the beach chairs were in great shape as well. The closet had masks and snorkels, but no fins, so bring your own.(Boss Frog's has very reasonable pricing on snorkel gear to rent.) The bathroom was very spacious and the water heat/pressure was great. The sink in the bathroom was a great size as well. There is a very spacious closet in the bathroom as well. The kitchen is set up for everything you will need. We ate in for most meals and the kitchen was everything we hoped for and more. You will not be disappointed. There is a grill down the flight of stairs back near the parking lot. We grilled fish every night and had every breakfast but one there. The bed was awesome. King and very comfortable. The couch in the living area was very comfortable as well. There is a dresser in the living room and it will accommodate all your clothes that you don't need to hang. There are sliding glass doors that open to the lanai, and wow, what a view you will have! You will get an ocean view because there is no home on the lot blocking your view of the ocean. We ate every meal that was in the room at the table out there. Nothing beats sitting on that lanai and drinking your coffee to start off your day. We also slept with the doors open each night. The property in my opinion is the best in Kaanapali. The units are all privately owned and it seemed as if the majority of people there were the actual owners. It's very quiet and you have a lot of privacy. I absolutely loved our stay in the unit and we will be back to stay in this unit. I think that speaks the most to the quality of the lodging if you can get someone to come back! I promise, if you are looking for a relaxing stay on Maui with very few distractions, stay here!

Great condo in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

The staff at the resort were wonderful, very helpful and friendly. The condo owners were super to work with. Highly recommend this condo! We made and ate in most of our meals — great kitchen and stocked with the kitchen supplies you need. Grocery store was just down the road a little way.

Highly recommend this place!

Absolute Perfection

  • 5 of 5

First of all, many thanks to the property owner, as she allowed us to do an early check in and a late check out, thus making a huge difference for us, and allowing us to enjoy a lot more time and peace than if we were dragging baggage and towels with us all along.

The property is an absolute pearl, a treasure in the perfect position (Kaanapali beach, one of the best in Maui), with an ocean view that made us starry eyed every morning, tropical island interior decor, sparkling clean unit, with plenty of commodities and amenities for the whole stay.

The Aston Maui Kaanapali Villas is a wonderful, peaceful resort, without the hustle and bustle of the Sheraton but with every service you need and actually in a better beach. I would recommend this specific apt as it's close to the parking, a small almost-private swimming pool, easy access to the beach and the rest of the resort and, most importantly, a fantastic ocean view.

It is at about 4 minutes from supermarkets, scuba diving shops and 10 minutes from Lahaina, and the Ocean Center. 1 minute from Black Rock and Sheraton.

I would recommend this property to every person who is looking to enjoy Maui in the best spot possible, and deal with the most helpful and friendly owners out there.

We are already considering coming back to Maui in the near future, and we will be absolutely booking this property again, if still available.

We felt like kings and queens for these past few days. While looking for the best shore diving spots, we asked recommendation to a dive shop and were very surprised when he absolutely recommended the same beach we were staying at, here at Aston Maui Kaanapali!!!

Owner's Response: We love having our guests feel like kings and queens! We feel so blessed to have our guests make such wonderful comments about our condo and property. We hope each and every guest feels this way during their stay. And we hope these guests are able to return and enjoy the "royal" treatment again and again!

Perfect relaxing vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

This condo is spacious and well-furnished, and the property was lovely and quiet.

The view from the lanai looks straight out to the ocean, with a vacant lot across the street and seemed to be one of just a few units that had this great view. We loved being on the "quiet end" of Kaanapali Beach and it was just a 30 min. walk to Whaler's Village and 10 min. walk from Whaler's Village. Castaway Cafe is a great spot for meals or happy hours and is right onsite.

We highly recommend this condo and will definitely stay here again. The owner, Susan, was great to work with, and answered my questions quickly as we were planning our trip.

Owner's Response: We appreciate all the kind comments and recommendations for our condo. Our view is awesome and we hope the empty lot stays that way for some time so our future guests can enjoy it also. Aloha!

Nice clean unit!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Kaanapali Villas many times in many different units. This is a great unit in the Coconut building. The unit is very clean and comfortable and kept in good shape. It is close to a small, quiet pool that is located between the coconut and banyan buildings - it is a nice alternative to the larger pool near the ocean. I highly recommend this unit!

Owner's Response: We enjoy the small pool also as well as this unit. We love it when our guests enjoy their stay and our condo. When we get a nice review like this it makes us long to be there. We hope it makes everyone who reads it want to enjoy MKV and Maui also!
