About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom/1 Bath best for 2 adults; comfy with 2 young children under 12.

Our large, 1100 square foot, ground-floor single level, ocean view condominium is spacious for 2 adults, and comfortable with 2 young children. It is in walking distance to three white sand beaches, including 'Best Beach' at Kapalua Bay. The lanai opens up to the landscaped lawn giving more 'outdoor living space.' Watch the sunset next to Molokai from the spacious lanai. The wall of windows in the living area brings the outdoors in! You can eat every meal on the protected lanai--no wind! This is a unique feature to our villa. Other condos and buildings can be too windy to eat on the lanai, but ours is great for al fresco dining! The tile in the living and dining rooms keeps the indoors cool, as well as the passive cooling from the trade winds when the louver windows are open.

The Bedroom has a small garden/ocean view lanai. The carpeting in the bedroom matches the decor and is very cushy on the feet. There is a King size Sleep Number bed...pick the firmness to your comfort level. The original artwork in the bedroom has island themes that is both soothing and interesting to look at.

The fully-equipped, updated kitchen has all appliances needed, from waffle iron to juice extractor, with a large pantry for groceries. The huge bathroom has a sunken shower, wall safe in the large closet, iron and ironing board, as well as a small size hair blow-dryer. Beach towels are provided for easy packing.

Our collection of guide books are there to help make your trip easier to plan once you are there. There are also beautiful 'coffee table' books highlighting Maui and the other Hawaiian Islands, as well as the Tahitian Islands and other islands around the world!

Two Championship Golf Courses are located in the Kapalua Resort Community. There are two tennis courts outside our door that are free to play on (racquets are available in the office). The great shops and restaurants within the Kapalua Resort Community make it so you never have to leave the area. There are three pools to choose from on the property, with BBQ kitchens, restrooms and showers. Watch the Tournament of Champions (formally the Mercedes Benz Championship) and all sporting events on the Sony 46" television! Walking and hiking trails are throughout Kapalua. The Kapalua Activity Center has a Concierge who can arrange activities, make dinner reservations, etc. Walk the trails at the old Village Golf Course (check in at the Kapalua Logo Shop). For a super hike, take the Mahana Ridge Trail to the Maunalei Arboretum and see what grows in the rain forest (17 miles round trip). The Kapalua Zipline is always an adventure in the rain forest!

The historic Honolua Store underwent complete remodeling to offer more dining choices from the new kitchen and deli, serving breakfast, lunch and light dinner fare. Eat on the patio and watch the world go by!

The owner of "Kapalua Sunset", Lisa Gannon, is certified by the Hawaii Visitor and Convention Bureau as an Expert Level Hawaii Destination Specialist. 'If my condo is not available for your dates, I will try to find alternate accommodations for you!'

'We visit our villa as often as possible throughout the year, maintaining it and giving it the love and attention you would expect to find in a luxury destination like Kapalua. The grounds of the Kapalua Bay Villas are fabulous, with picture-taking opportunities throughout the property. Read the reviews and visit our 'Kapalua Sunset' villa yourself. This will be your home-away-from-home!!'

About Lisa and Peter Gannon

We came to Maui over 30 years ago on our honeymoon and knew this would be the place to call home. We've been on all of the islands and love Maui best, especially in Kapalua. Lisa is a Certified Hawaii Destination Specialist and has been in the tourism industry for 20+ years. If our condo isn't available, Lisa will find you another one. Peter loves to golf, especially in Kapalua!! Snorkeling and SCUBA diving are hobbies we both enjoy.

Lisa and Peter Gannon purchased this condo in 2002

Why Lisa and Peter Gannon chose Kapalua

Kapalua is a World Class vacation Destination Resort Community. Known primarily for the Championship golf courses, it also offers an ambiance not found anywhere else on the island. Being able to walk to various beaches is a huge attraction. The Kapalua Bay Villas are an ocean front property with fantastic views in all directions! It is closest to Kapalua Bay, but doesn't have the congestion some beach areas on the island have.

What makes this condo unique

'Kapalua Sunset' is located in a building that makes the lanai protected from the wind. You can eat every meal on the lanai...this is VERY unique to our condo. With the view of Molokai across the channel and large, green lawn...this is paradise!

The Coastal Trail along Kapalua Bay and boardwalk along Oneloa Bay (aka 'Ironwoods Beach') are wonderful. Each day there's something else to see while walking the trails...whale watching is wonderful! The trail system makes it easy to get from one beach to another. The walking trails on what used to be the Village Golf Course are great, too, for exercise as well as seeing beautiful vistas in the area. The complimentary Kapalua Shuttle makes it very easy to get around the Resort. It picks up at the condo and transports anywhere within Kapalua...this is great for eating out, golfing and getting to the beaches.

'Kapalua Sunset' is unique in itself in that we collected the books, artwork, etc. over 30+ years. Our personalities and love for the area is shown in the decor...unlike a hotel-style condo that looks the same as the next one. Spending time at our villa and maintaining it throughout the year provides our guests with the comfort of knowing 'real' people care about their vacation experience. We have pride in ownership, and believe it shows.

Mahalo for choosing "Kapalua Sunset" as your vacation home. We hope you enjoy it and and join the "ohana" who return to their vacation home at "Kapalua Sunset".

Best regards and Cheers to Great Vacations!

Lisa & Peter Gannon

Guestbook comments from the owner

David & I arrived at the condo about 6:00 this evening. Needless to say ... we are happier than our wildest dreams. The unit is beautiful, perfect, clean and very comfortable.

Please let the owners know how satisfied we are and that we will treat & respect their "home away from home" as if it is our own. The new kitchen counter tops are beautiful. I just might copy them for my Vermont condo.

Thank you for taking the time to assuage the fears of a "crazy lady from New York City". If we are fortunate enough to come back to Maui; we will, with pleasure use your expert services again. We will certainly recommend you to all our friends.

Thanks so much.

Great to be Back to Kapalua

  • 5 of 5

We were only here for a short, 4 day, visit, but totally enjoyed our time. The unit was in excellent condition and as described. We had a couple of questions when we first got there and Lisa was extremely responsive in getting back to us right away. Would definitely stay again.

Comfortable and well-appointed condo in an ideal location

  • 5 of 5

We've been visiting Kapalua for years, and have been curious about the Bay Villas. We decided to give them a shot, and we're delighted we did. The complex is lovely, and the 'Kapalua Sunset' condo easily lived up to its long list of great reviews. If you're looking for a relaxing, private place to call 'home' on Maui (at a reasonable price) you should look no further. Highly recommended.

feels like home!

  • 5 of 5

We have traveled to Maui every 5 years since 2007. We discovered our favorite beach was Kapalua Bay & searched for a place to stay in the area for the 2nd visit. We found Kapalua Sunset in 2012. We just returned home from our 3rd visit to Maui & our 2nd time staying at the Kapalua Sunset condo. Since the last time we were there, the owners have done some upgrades in the bathroom & kitchen which was nice. We like this particular condo for the proximity to the gate, the ease of walking to the trail for beach access, the location for watching sunsets & it's homey feel. We have plenty of room to spread out & we prefer being in a condo because it's nice to have a kitchen & private lanai. We wish we could go every year & stay in this condo!

Owner's Response: Aloha! Thank you for the nice review! It has always been our goal to cultivate an "ohana" of repeat guests, and The Stirland's have become part of the family! The upgrades to the kitchen and bathroom include beautiful green granite and appliances, as well as a new sectional sofa and artwork from French Polynesia. The sunsets are fabulous from our lanai, which lends to the name "Kapalua Sunset" that we bestowed upon our villa. We want our villa to feel like home for our guests, and not like staying in a hotel or corporate environment. Our home is your home, and we welcome everyone an opportunity to stay at our "Kapalua Sunset" villa at the Kapalua Bay Villas. Cheers to Great Vacations! Lisa and Peter Gannon

Wonderful ...

  • 5 of 5

Earlier this year we spent a month in this beautiful villa and we enjoyed it so much that we changed our plans and we returned to spend another 10 days at the Kapalua Sunset. This is everything you could possibly want in a vacation rental. It was spotless, well furnished, good linens and towels, well equipped kitchen, comfortable bed, beautiful view, well located and easy to use. If we return to Maui (and I hope we do), my wife and I would stay at the Kapalua Sunset again.
