"My family of 6 (2 adults and 4 teenagers) has just returned from a 10 night stay in Jim's condo. To say we had a wonderful vacation is an understatement. The condo is just as advertised, with extras that sometimes are not included, but are very much appreciated. Like everyone else has said, the closet stocked with boogie boards, lawn chairs, a cooler and tennis rackets was great, but it is the little things like laundry and dishwasher detergent, tin foil, salt and pepper, extra towels that are really appreciated!! We have stayed in other rentals that have none of those items and they nickel and dime you to death! Having some of these items was such a pleasant surprise. Thank you Jim and your management company for having them. We did not contact the management company during our stay as it was never needed.
The location of Ka'anapali Shores is great. There is lots to do in the area, with Lahaina a short drive up the highway. We always felt safe while on the entire island. There is a Times grocery store right across the street or a Safeway in Lahaina. The new pool and grounds are stunning. Just beautiful! Jim's condo overlooks the new pool area so you can watch your kids from your lanai. There is a barbeque area (which is poorly located on the property) with picnic tables near the tennis courts so the kids are not bored when you are down grilling your dinner. There is plenty of parking - the resort charges you $9 per night when you arrive. You receive towel cards for pool towels, and Jim has extras in the condo as well so do not bother packing more.
The beds are comfortable, although the mattress on the sofa bed needs replacing. There is plenty of room for 6 guests without tripping over each other and the fact that there are 2 newly renovated bathrooms is a bonus. The lanai is a nice size with a private smaller one off of the master bedroom. Overall, this condo is exactly what we were wanting and even better than we were expecting. Jim has been wonderful to deal with and I would not hesitate for one minute to recommend his place to my friends and family. We are hoping we will be back again in the future, as it has become a favorite."
