About the property

Maui Kaanapali Villas is a low density resort located just north of Lahaina on the world famous Kaanapali Beach, which is rated one of the top ten beaches in the United States. The resort is set on 11 acres of beautifully groomed tropical gardens. The beach is a two-minute stroll from the unit.

The two pools were totally redone with new hot tubs added. Also located on the grounds is the beachside Castaway Restaurant. Whale watching is at a premium right from the beach from December to April. Enjoy the clean, beautiful gas grills in 3 different locations on the property, 2 of which are close by.

There is no other condo like Banyan 242 on property. Custom cabinets, new appliances, stone floors and counter tops were installed in the kitchen. The bathroom was also redone. The same stone was used on the bathroom vanity as well as the large, walk-in shower.

The living area is equipped with a queen-size wall bed, comfortable couch and a table with 2 chairs.

The wrap around lanai is perfect for relaxing and creating a cross breeze through the condo. Free wireless internet is also available in the room. One time cleaning provided on check out.

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 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

Great value and a nice, cozy unit

  • 4 of 5

Great place for the value, especially on such a short-notice trip. Property is as advertised; it's a smaller unit towards the back of the property. No beach view but it's a short walk (about 3 min). The property was very well maintained and very comfortable. The unit also has AC (we live on Oahu and don't have AC, so this was HUGE). Owners were very prompt and responded to my emails almost immediately. There is a halfway decent cafe with a full bar located on a property, although I found their lunch and dinner prices to be quite high (breakfast was good). All in allI would definitely recommend this property.

Exactly as described!! Love MKV & this unit was perfect for the 2 of us...

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy staying here. Condo just as described. Love this location & the beaches with snorkeling in walking distance. Plus free trolley to Ka'anapali. Only drawback is the Banyan building is in back of the complex (which we knew, but did not realize it was close to highway & although you do not see can hear it). But we still would definitely recommend staying here if the price is right. And some Tommy Bahama beach chairs would be nice to have too.

Favorite Maui get-away, just right for single or couple

  • 5 of 5

I will definitely stay here again. Best Maui vacation spot in North Kaanapali. Low rise, low key relaxation and best beach location in the area. The owner's Susan and Troy happen to arrive on the property just as I was texting an inquiry about the safe in the unit (which I didn't end up using anyway). Their timing was perfect for resupplying the unit with a new cooler, new beach chairs, new pillows and a few days later a beautiful new couch was delivered. The unit is cleverly designed for comfort and has plenty of room for two people with the Murphy bed up or down. There is a wrap-around porch and two sliders on opposite sides of the room (provides a nice cross-breeze) in addition to the entry door. The kitchen is very well furnished with all the cooking utinsels, pots, pans, coffee maker, toaster, blender, crockpot and dishes needed for cooking in. If you don't feel like cooking in, the beachfront Castaway Cafe on-site serves breakfast, lunch, dinner and cocktails (with gluten free options) and the food is quite good. There is a grocery store in walking distance (I would suggest driving if you are doing major provisioning), and several restaurants that are walkable (we walked to dinner and took an Uber back). Maui Kaanapali Villas is the perfect spot for a relaxing vacation, poolside and beachside. Whale watching from the beach and bar and the owners are the best. Mahalo!

Excellent stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Kaanapali was wonderful. The condo had everything we needed and we felt at home. We were provided everything we needed from linens to towels to kitchenware to cutlery! A parking spot was available and the location was perfect. The grounds were clean, safe and accessible. An awesome restaurant Right on the beach that had awesome breakfast. Note: you'll need a car to enjoy all of Kaanapali if staying at this place. Also, this place might be too small for more than two adults but for a couple, it's perfect!
