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 Kaanapali
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 condo in a great resort
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.

Thank you for taking the time to write us a positive review and for recommending us to other travelers. I am so glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us! I hope your next stay is just around the corner.
Take care Gary!
Great condo, in a nice resort, with a fantastic owner!!
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!
It was a pleasure to have you and your family Matt! Again, thank you for your kind review and we look forward to welcoming you back to your home-away-from home on your next visit to Maui.
Condo is old
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.
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.
Beautiful Condo with Great Veiws,
Thank you Kiani for providing a beautifully remodeled, well stocked condo on our favorite Island. We had 5 Adults (our children) and slept very comfortably while enjoying the sounds of the sea.
Mahalo David! Please come back we enjoyed having your family! 😊
Very Nice Place
We had a very nice time at this 2 & 2 condo on the beach. The condo is updated very nicely and is very clean. The views from the unit are awesome. The pool is great, the beach is small. This unit is also close to fairly priced supermarket, stores, and cafes/small eateries. Kiana (owner) was very nice and got back to me when I had a question. The only complaint is the gym. The building has a gym which charges $5 dollars a day to workout. I know it's not a lot but after spending a lot of money to stay here I was not happy when they told me I had to pay to workout. Maybe if that was explained in the unit description it would not have angered me. Again, had a great time in this unit would stay here again.
Perfect location and beautiful accommodation!
This was our first trip to Maui but it won't be our last and we will stay here again! The location of the resort was perfect for our family with quick and easy access to all of your vacation needs. The condo was clean and had everything we needed and the view was amazing!
