The location was great. The unit was well cared for and well stocked. Even though the unit faces the road, it was very quiet and peaceful. There were chairs in the closet to take to the beach and lots of tupperware to store any leftovers. We were able to use our music from our phone with the speaker. We loved sitting outside to enjoy the weather. The unit was slightly dated but very clean and comfortable.
This is the first time that we stayed in the Maui Kaanpauli Villas and the resort itself was very relaxing and low key. The pools weren't crowded and the property was well-maintained. We would walk to the Whaler's Village (about 30 minutes) and take the trolley back. The boardwalk was a perfect place to walk. We ate breakfast at the restaurant on the property, Castaway, and it was delicious. Also the happy hour was very friendly and convenient.
Minus one star for the following: 1) The bed was not comfortable for us, so I am not sure I would stay in this unit again. The mattress would flop around easily. 2) It's a 4 minute walk to the beach, I thought from the description it was steps from the beach.
So having stayed at a number of places in Maui, this was one of the best places we've stayed. this particular room was located best due to the angle of the building for the sunrise and sunsets. because this room is one back from the edge of the building we never had to deal with the afternoon sun and making the room to hot. The view was spectacular because you could see the entire beach strip all the way to the Sheraton and Black Rock. The location at Whalers had the best of both worlds, all the shopping all the golf and all the restaurants were within short walks and the beach was so much nicer than other areas. I would highly recommend this room and location.
