About The Owner

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.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2004

Why The Owner chose West Maui

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

Lovely, clean condo in the Maui Ka'anapali Villas resort

  • 5 of 5

Our family had stayed at the Maui Ka'anapali Villas in 2010, so we already knew about and appreciated the professional but warm interactions with the staff and the beautifully maintained gardens, pools and beach front. However, working with Susan on our reservation for our Hawaiian escape this year was a delight!

We found everything about the condo just as described on the website and then some---neat, tidy, and clean--with a well-equipped kitchen, comfortable bed with reading lights (with a Maui guide book to peruse), and a nicely updated bathroom with a walk-in shower---everything my husband and I needed for our terrific six-day stay! Thank you, Susan. Your condo really is situated in a little piece of paradise!

Owner's Response: Just what we like to hear! We whole-heartedly agree with the last statement that our condo really is situated in a little piece of paradise. We love helping our guests have a memorable vacation. Our condo is equipped with many of the items we think our guests will need or enjoy. Come enjoy our little piece of paradise!

Beautiful beach and sunsets!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Bunch's wonderful Kaanapali condo. The studio was tastefully decorated and well equipped. It seemed larger due to the ingenious murphy bed, separate kitchen, and wrap around balcony. We enjoyed using the nearby grills to barbeque. The spacious grounds opened to the pools and beautiful beach. I enjoyed daily walks on the beach walk. We appreciated the 24 hour check in service due to an unexpected late arrival. The Kaanapali sunsets were the best of our vacation! We would love to return!

Owner's Response: And we certainly hope these guests are able to return someday also. The bed in our condo is an actual box springs and mattress that are in a frame which allows it to be stored upright during the day. Just reading this review makes us long to return to our little spot in paradise. We are so pleased that so many of our guests love this little spot as we do.

Highly impressed with the customer serviced received by Susan

  • 5 of 5

The unti was just as described, somewhat close to a noisy street, but overall a great value!

This owner is super responsive and accomodating, I can't say enough about the customer service we have received from Susan. From allowing me to change the arrival date, to finding alternate accomodations when her unit was supposely "under renos", to answering any questions and allowing us to have a late check out - THANK YOU! Bonus: 2 sets of snorkling gear as well as portable folding chairs we were able to use.

I would highly recommend this unit to any singles or couples looking for a central location on Kanaapali Beach.

Owner's Response: We always appreciate such kind words and great reviews of our condo! Maui is such a beautiful place and we love sharing this little piece of paradise with others. Please note: the snorkels sets were left by a previous guest which we do appreciate but those may not always be there for our guests to use. We do keep folding chairs and a cooler available for use.

We love Maui Kaanpali Villas!

  • 5 of 5

We had stayed at MKV before, but the unit we had rented was full when we went to make reservations. As luck would have it, we found this gem! This studio condo is very well stocked! Everything was very clean, and having stayed at a supposed 4 star resort the night before, where there was a thick layer of dust on the bedside table lamps, coming to Susan's super clean condo was a welcome relief! I even pointed out to my husband that the plantation style shutter slats were dust free!

The condo had everything we needed to cook & the bathroom had a huge walk in shower. I did read some review that complained about the lanai and how they felt it was noisy due to highway traffic, however, we sat on the front side of the lanai facing out to the grassy areas, and we had no traffic noise issues. We didn't however sleep with windows open, as we are from WA State and air conditioning was a must for us!

While Kaanpali Villas has a large beautiful swimming pool beachfront, we were very pleased with the proximity to the smaller pool/hot tub, and made a trip there every night.

We enjoyed working with Susan so much, we plan to rent another of her MKV on our next trip to Maui!

My husband and I stayed here for one week. Everything was perfect from start to finish. Susan was quick to respond to every email. Booking and payment went smoothly. Check-in was easy. The room was exactly as pictured & described, except the TV was new (which we never turned on anyway!). Room seems small when you walk in but the space is used so well you never feel like you're in a small space. Full kitchen perfect for our needs. Unit is on the end on its own, so there are windows on both sides making the room nice and bright. Property has well maintained gardens, and a very nice main pool, particularly when compared with neighboring properties. I highly recommend this property! Thanks for everything!
