About Stacey Kaplan
Hi! I’m Stacey. My husband Asher and I grew up in Washington State and met at The University of Washington. We live near Seattle with our son and dog, but Maui is our tropical escape. We have traveled throughout the Hawaiian Islands, but Maui is special. We couldn’t resist sharing the experience with others. Each year, we donate a Maui Beachside stay at the Seattle Humane Tuxes & Tails Fundraising Gala. Seattle Humane is an independent, nonprofit organization that saves 7K animals a year.

Stacey Kaplan purchased this Condo in 2016
Why Stacey Kaplan chose Kihei
We have traveled throughout the Hawaiian islands, but this section of Maui was always our favorite. TripAdvisor has even named Maui the #1 island in the world! We love the sun, powder sand beaches, warm swimmable ocean water, turtles, whales, magical sunsets, kiteboarding, SUP (stand up paddleboarding), scuba diving, yoga, golf, hiking, and all the delicious food! We decided to purchase a condo in Kihei so that we could spend more time in Maui and to share our love of the island with our family, friends, and guests.
What makes this Condo unique
When we walked outside onto Royal Mauian 509's lanai (Hawaiian for veranda, patio or porch) for the first time and saw multiple green sea turtles floating around, we knew this was the one. It’s the perfect location for R&R or to be adventurous and explore the Valley Isle.

We didn’t want to leave.
We love Maui. We booked 5 days, then cancelled our reservation at the Hyatt to do 5 more days, we didn’t want to leave. Our host was always available to assist with questions about the property. Internet worked great so I could work from the lanai, then go for a swim. Followed by a world famous mocha bean milkshake across the street. Dinner at Coconuts, get fresh fish & chowder. We hope to return ASAP. Mahalo Stacey
Aloha Robert, thank you for taking the time to share your experience while staying at Maui Beachside! There’s truly so much to love about the island that it definitely makes it difficult to wave goodbye to. Happy to hear that you enjoyed the very best of paradise - from the lanai views to Coconuts (aka the perfect casual surf-themed spot)! Looking forward to saying “Aloha” to you again when you’re ready to return. Until then - Mahalo, Stacey
Gorgeous, relaxing views and sounds, and convenient.
This IS the best one bedroom at the Royal Mauian and Stacey is the consummate host. She thought of everything in designing this condo-- no designer feature left out and yet it is all very tasteful and comfortable. We have been to Kihei and the Royal Mauian before, and have a close friend who recently bought a 2 bedroom, so we know this property well and were discerning in choosing Stacey's Unit. While the pictures are terrific, they don't quite match up to the AWWW you feel when you walk in. Beautiful color scheme and beach wood, as well as extras like a towel warmer, recessed lighting, huge tv with sound bar, and rich dark wood doors. Stacey made sure any questions we had were answered easily in her binder and was responsive on this site when we had a couple of more. Would not hesitate to recommend this property to anyone looking for Four Seasons level of luxury with the superiority of Kihei beaches and all the conveniences across the street-- Health Food Store, coffee/breakfast/shaved ice, Maui Massage, various shops and restaurants. You don't even need a car.
Aloha Susan, thank you so much for taking the time to share such thoughtful words on your experience! It was an honor to host you for a return trip to Maui. Love to hear that our oceanfront oasis could offer everything you needed to truly relax and enjoy all that the island has to offer its guests. When you’re ready to come back for more sunshine and Kihei beach time, know that you always have a place to stay here! Mahalo & ‘til next time, Stacey
AGAIN, perfect stay at #509!
This was our third perfect stay at #509! You can believe the pictures and the 5 star rating on this condo.
Pros: The owner (Stacey) is a great communicator! Making sure you have your entry codes before you arrive. Upon arrival, she wants to make sure everything in the Condo is as you expected. And she insists that she be notified if any problems arise.
The condo is, as the pictures show! It is clean. The kitchen has any appliance or dish you would need to prepare a gourmet meal.
Location, Location, Location! Ocean Front Lanai! The property is located between Kam 1 & Kam 2 beaches, across the street neighborhood shopping, restaurants, and beach equipment rentals. All within walking distance (2 blocks).
It's been our experience that the Royal Mauian condo owners care about the maintenance of the property. From the manicured lawn and flowers that circle the base of the palm trees to the upkeep of the building itself.
Thank you again for sharing your home with us. See you in 2021.
Aloha Julie, it was so lovely to have you back at our slice of paradise! Thank you so much for taking the time to leave such kind words about your stay. Always a pleasure to help you get the R&R you come to the island for each and every time. Looking forward to saying “aloha” to you again next year for more Maui memories! ‘Til then - Mahalo, Stacey
Maui beachside is an amazing perfect place!! We don’t want to leave. I can’t think of any thing that would need attention.
Stacey was so good to deal with in every aspect! We couldn’t have asked for a better location! The sunsets the whale watching. The sound of the ocean waves. All right from the Lanai! Would highly recommend.
Aloha Darren & Kelly, Thank you for taking the time to leave such a thoughtful review! It puts a smile on my face to hear just how much you enjoyed staying at our slice of paradise. Those dreamy views sure make it difficult to wave goodbye! When you’re ready to return to the island, know that you always have a place here at #MauiBeachside. Mahalo & ‘til next time, Stacey
This is a great property as well as a great location. Everything one would need for a long term stay seems to be here. The lanai gives a great view of the beach and is nicely protected from the trade winds. Nice view of the sunset. Full moon sets straight off the lanai framed by the Palm trees. Too many good things to say. Highly recommend!
Aloha Dale, appreciate you taking the time to share what your stay was like at our piece of paradise! It was a pleasure to have you as our guests, and love reading your appreciation for those daytime and evening views from the lanai. It really is an oceanfront oasis! Hope to say “Aloha” to you again here at #MauiBeachside. Mahalo & ‘til next time, Stacey

The walk to the pool is approximately 1-minute. Snorkel with turtles, tropical fish, eels, octopus and rays right out front in the ancient lava reef. Go for a swim at Charley Young Beach (North part of Kamaole Beach I), boogie board, or paddleboard up to Cove Park for the best beginner wave surfing on the island. Countless other activities are close by including the road to Hana, Mt. Haleakala, kite surfing, zip lining, scuba diving, golf and yoga (oceanfront right next door).
Right across the street you will find excellent shopping, sports rentals and some of the best restaurants in all of Maui, including local favorite, Café O’Lei, Coconuts, Da Kitchen, Maui Tacos, Koiso Sushi, Shave Ice, Cinnamon Roll Fair/Place, and Hawaiian Moons Natural Foods (Grocery Store).
