About Kiani

We have traveled to many tropical destinations including the Hawaiian islands and our favorite location has and always will be Maui. We fell in love with Maui ever since our first visit. We have been fortunate and blessed to have a place to call home on this beautiful island.

Kiani purchased this condo in 2015

Why Kiani chose Lahaina

Kaanapali Shores is a wonderul place because of all the amenities it offers and the outstanding location.

What makes this condo unique

The views from the main lanai are priceless. With our condo being on the 8th floor the perspective is amazing and you can see whales breach right from the lanai. Plus our condo is fully renovated with luxurious Hawaiian style in mind, so we hope that you will feel right home as we do.

Great stay in Maui

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at this condo. Owner was easy to work with and property managers were helpful when we went to borrow beach chairs. Unit was very clean and the photos on the website are accurate. The condo is situated so that the view is private and very nice. You are not overlooking a noisy pool or into the windows of other units. The property is nice with two pools and a restaurant on site. Other restaurants are across the street, as well as a full grocery store. Our friend took advantage of the discovery dive lesson offered by the resort and ended up going diving in the ocean, which she loved. There is a beachwalk that will take you to Whaler's Village. It is a scenic walk, but about 2 miles.

Condo had all the supplies we needed for the week. My daughter uses a wheelchair, and the only thing that was a bit difficult was getting her into the bathroom. Regardless, we made it work and had a wonderful time. We would definitely book this condo again.

Great vacation in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We loved the location with the very private setting. Our beach time as well as the pool time were perfect. The condo was nicely decorated, clean and comfortable for 4 adults. I appreciated that we received several calls asking if we needed anything or had any questions. Thanks for a great stay.

Wonderful stay at Kanapalii Shores

  • 5 of 5

Great resort!! Grounds very well maintained, very beautiful. Right on the ocean which made for seeing some very nice sunsets. All of the amenities you need/want, reastaurant, shops, pools and beach very close. The condo we rented was very nice with a view of the ocean from the living room and master bedroom.

As soon as we landed, I received a text with the access code to the condo. Very easy and smooth check in. Great vacation.

Great condo in a great resort

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at this condo in late February. Right from the beginning we were impressed. The condo has great views of the ocean from the living area, the lanai and both bedrooms. The condo is spacious and well appointed. Condo has all the conveniences and we were impressed with the little things like the box of chocolates and the pound of coffee with creamers and sugar left on the counter. The condo was furnished with boxes of laundry detergent, extra Kleenex, ample rolls of toilet paper, plenty of garbage bags, shampoos, conditioners and hand lotions. All of those small touches added up to a lot of satisfaction. We saw plenty of whales from the lanai. The resort itself has two great pools with plenty of chairs and lounges and a bar and grill restaurant. The staff that run the resort are super friendly and very helpful. This is a resort and condo that I would recommend to anyone who would like a place to stay on Maui. The condo owner Kiani was great to deal with and promptly answered all emails. Thanks Kiani you have a great condo in a great resort.

Great condo, in a nice resort, with a fantastic owner!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at this condo for 2 weeks in 2018 and absolutely loved it! We had stayed at the same resort about 6 years ago, and this newly renovated unit was much nicer. It was good to know exactly what unit you were getting too. This one has a great view of the ocean, and the mountains. We spent a lot of time on the lanai watching whales right outside our door!! The new garden pool at the resort is very nice as well. We spent a lot of time there when we weren’t out looking for new beaches to try. The lack of a beach would be the only downside to this resort. From everyone we talked to apparently Maui might be having a little bit of a erosion problem. A lot of resorts have lost their beaches. We went to a few other places we have stayed in the past and their beaches were gone as well. It’s a good thing Maui still has plenty of great beaches to go around, and their are several great ones close to this condo!

I can’t say enough good things about Kiani, and the rental management company she uses. There was great communication every step of the way. We typically book our trips though one of the travel sites, so this was actually our first VRBO experience. Kiani made the whole experience wonderful, and was very accommodating. We couldn’t have done this trip any other way. If we get another chance to come back to Hawaii I will definitely use VRBO again, and I will definitely try to book this same unit!

Condo is old

  • 2 of 5

Was really not impressed with the quality of things in this condo. Bad master shower, toilet that keeps running, dirty windows, washer and dryer are old and it takes forever to dry anything in that dryer and washer is very small. The only thing this condo has going for it is the view. Oh and because the condos is recessed back you never see any sun in the lani. And is is not a very clean condo. Catpets in bedrooms look dingy and probably have never been cleaned. Its fun how these pictures are always when it’s new or been remodeled but not a good reflection on how it looks presently. Would not stay here again. The Aston complex is very nice though and they keep everything well maintained and beautiful. Nice job to them. And I don’t like check out at 11 am when the complex is 12 noon. That’s not nice.

Owner's Response: We are sorry you were not impressed with the condo. Guests who have stayed with us and written reviews always say, our condo is accurately represented as in the description and pictures. The master shower in majority of condos in Hawaii that are walk-in are of similar design. If there was an issue with the toilet, our property management company are available 24-7, and able to help with any issues. But thank you for letting us know about the running toilet. Thanks for telling us about the windows, will look into it. Keep in mind with the unit being so close to the ocean, it’s not uncommon for windows that are clean in the morning to be dusty in the afternoon. The washer and dryer are definitely smaller than the typical units in a normal single family home. Because it is a condo, space is limited, so to maximize usable space and keep functionality, the smaller sizes are unavoidable. The carpets can get dirty from each guest stay, but we do have them cleaned regularly. They are actually due to be replaced in 2018, despite not being very old. The condo was remodeled few years ago, so not new, but much newer and updated than the Aston units. We have our own property management company that does strict quality control at each checkout to ensure proper functionality and cleanliness. And you are correct, our unit faces north west on the island. So, our lanai gets plenty of sunshine but never direct sunlight, because the sunsets are are more to the south. It’s ac nice because it keeps the lanai and the unit less hot. If someone wanted direct sunlight, the pool is just down the elevator or the beach is just a stroll away. Lastly, our check out time is 11:00 and that is normal for us. We do accommodate a later check out if needed and available. It just needs to be requested ahead of time, and we are usually able to accommodate. Thank you for staying with us, and letting us know your thoughts. We always strive to provide our home away from Home as best as we can.
