Summary: To start with the good: this condo is in a great beachfront location with easy access to a wonderful beach. The place appeared to be clean and well maintained. But starting on the first night, a rat or rats started eating our food. Once we discovered the problem, a worker came and discovered a huge rat’s nest behind the dishwasher. He seemed to think the problem was solved after sealing some holes, but we heard the rat prowling the kitchen for the entire trip and had to deal with a trap sitting on the kitchen counter. When we mistakenly left a piece of fruit out, we came back to find it gnawed to pieces. The owner was responsive and tried to help, but also noted this is a common issue in ground floor units. In the end, we couldn’t use the unit while the worker took apart the kitchen looking for the rat one day, had to spend more time shopping to replace the eaten food (not cheap in Hawaii!), and had a hairy companion staying with us. Despite the beautiful location, I can’t recommend this unit. If you do stay there, make sure you put away all food in a closed upper cabinet. If they can solve this issue, this is a great place for a couple to stay.

Summary: Here is the list of problems:We found 2 cockroaches, one in toilet and the other in the bathroomNo Wi- fi in the unit. When we complained the management hooked us up with next unit. The service was spotty.No cupboard space either in the bedroom or the living room . There was a small closet in the bathroom which was shared with beach parafarnalia. All the closets were locked and for owners useThere was not a single chair to sit ( to change clothes or shoes) either in the bedroom or bath area or living room.The furniture was old fashioned And heavy and almost too large for the tiny bedroom leaving hardly any space to go around.We stayed there for 5 days and enjoyed ourselves because the view was absolutely outstanding and so were the pool and jacuzzi . The kitchen had been updated but had only 1 wine glass. Overall I would go to the property but look for another unit.

Summary: Beautiful property right on the beach. The home had everything we needed to have the best 10 days in paradise Jill was very easy to communicate with and quick to respond to any questions you might have. We will definitely be renting this property again when we return to the beautiful island of Maui!

Summary: My wife and I had a very memorable stay here. The place was clean and spacious. It’s nice to be on the bottom floor where you can just walk right out to the beach or watch sunset from the patio. The Castaway Cafe is also just seconds away for breakfast, lunch, dinner, drinks. The resort fee is $25/day. We were always able to find a parking space right outside. There’s also a loading zone spot just feet away from the door. We’ll be back for sure!

Summary: Exceeded our expectations! We had the most relaxing stay. This property is beautiful and so well kept. The location was spectacular and we enjoyed the sunset on the beach every evening. Thanks for sharing your little slice if paradise with us!

Summary: Great location.. Restaurant was not the friendliest! Overall the villa was great would stay here again!

Dec 27, 2021 05:11:35 AM

Summary: I’ve been staying at the Maui Kaanapali Villas since the early 90s. Still the best kept secret in Maui. We’ve stated in Banyan, Coconut, Dolphin and Emerald buildings and enjoyed them all but this into tops them all for location and comfort. And the owners are always prompt with any assistance needed. Thank you for sharing your home with us!

Summary: This was our first trip to Maui, and we researched a lot to find a condo right on the beach. Jill was very helpful with answering any questions we had. The place was gorgeous! Well stocked with everything we needed, and so comfortable, We loved being able to walk right out to the beach. The sand, water, and natural setting at Kaanapali was out of this world. We paddle boarded and snorkeled the coral reef in front of the hotel next door. I would definitely stay here again on my next trip.

Summary: We absolutely love the Maui Kaanapali Villas resort, and particularly this unit. The resort sits north of black rock, away from all the crowds on the main part of Kaanapali Beach, while still being an easy walk on the beach path to Whaler’s Village and other resort restaurants. The beach here is outstanding – calm waters, nice sand, and great snorkeling just a short walk up the beach. The resort provides lounge chairs (for free!) on the lawn in front of the beach, has a nice pool and hot tub, a great bar, okay restaurant, and activity rentals all right there on site. This condo unit is right on the lawn facing the ocean, and it’s wonderful to be able to walk right out of your condo to the lounge chairs and beach, or lounge on the lanai looking out at the water and sunsets. The bed is very comfortable, the linens and towels are especially soft, the décor throughout the condo is lovely, the LR has a huge TV that you can watch from the lanai as well, the bathroom and kitchen are modern and spacious, and the condo has every thoughtful amenity you might need. The owners even provide beach chairs, umbrellas and other beach items you might need which we really appreicated. They are also very responsive to communicate with and very accommodating. This was our second stay in this unit and we will definitely be returning. The only down-side – it’s extremely hard to leave!

Summary: Can't say enough about this property. It is in the perfect location, best spot on the property, beautiful sunset views every night, steps to the pool and the restaurant. It has all the comforts of home that are so helpful to have! From the portable beach chairs, the cooler, all the dishes. The hosts Bob & Jill are excellent communicators and were on top of an issue we had within an hour. I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a wonderful Hawaiian vacation.

Nov 01, 2021 06:54:07 PM

Summary: We have stayed in many MKV condos over the years. This is by far the best. Steps from the beach with a beautiful view and so beautifully decorated. We can't wait to return!

Summary: We recently stayed here on our trip to Maui for 5 days. We could not have asked for a better rental. We loved the location - close to/within walking distance of the beach and restaurants, but far enough away from the major resorts to feel less crowded. The unit itself is perfectly situated near the beach on the first level. Each morning, I threw on some clothes and went straight from the lanai to the beach, or hung out on some of the chairs in the grassy area in front of the unit. The unit was tastefully updated, and the mattress was so perfect. All the appliances were fairly new, and the unit had everything we needed (e.g., pots & pans, beach chairs & umbrella, boogie boards, coffee pot, umbrellas, etc.). We will definitely be staying here again in the future, and we cannot wait to be back in Maui!

Sep 13, 2021 07:14:26 AM

Summary: We loved everything about Jill’s condo! The location was stunning- beachfront, just steps across the grass to the beach and ocean. The view from the condo was gorgeous! Everything inside the condo was wonderful- clean, spacious, and comfortable. We had everything we needed and were so pleased with our whole stay! We love this location on Kaanapali Beach- the ocean just in front of the resort is sandy and great for swimming, but if you walk north down the beach just a few minutes, there is great snorkeling in front of the Westin Kaanapali Ocean Resort Villas- best of both worlds! We would snorkel just down the beach and come back in front of the MKV condos to just relax in the water. The condo had beach chairs and beach towels available for us to use (we brought our own snorkeling gear but you can also rent on site). We ate lunches at the Castaway Cafe on site as well- great little spot with beautiful ocean views and friendly staff. We will definitely return to Jill’s condo and the MKV:).

Summary: It felt like home!

Aug 28, 2021 08:57:25 PM

Summary: Located on a great beach, good for walking and swimming. Easy access to restaurants and shopping via the free trolley. The condo is large and comfortable.

Aug 09, 2021 04:48:03 AM

Summary: Beautiful condo & perfect location! Literally paradise. Comfortable bed, spacious bathroom, huge tv, well supplied kitchen and the view from the lanai is amazing! Jill responded quickly when i had questions. Would love to rent this lovely condo again.

Aug 04, 2021 02:10:15 PM

Summary: We’ve stayed at MKV for 7 consecutive years (yes, we love it here) and this is by far the best unit we’ve stayed in. Beautifully appointed and the best location at MKV. If I could’ve stuffed the comfy leather couch in my carry-on, I would’ve. :)

Jun 26, 2021 11:03:50 AM

Summary: This condo truly is the perfect spot on beautiful Kaanapali beach. It’s on the quiet end of the resort with gorgeous sunset views. It’s well equipped and ideal for a couple’s getaway. We hope to come back!

Summary: We will be back, loved it that much!!

Jun 19, 2021 03:43:49 AM

Summary: Open your living room sliding glass doors and take about 12 steps across the lawn onto the sands of one of the most beautiful beaches on Maui. You can’t get any closer than this.

Jun 18, 2021 05:00:25 AM

Summary: We loved everything about the condo. Steps to the beach or pool. Updated and very clean. We already have our next stay planned and can’t wait to return.

Jun 18, 2021 04:00:15 AM

Summary: We've been staying at MKV for over 20-years. We've stayed in nearly every building. Dolphin is the BEST and this unit rivals all units that we've stayed. Location, location, location! And unit is clean and comfortable. Can't go wrong with this one. My only reservation to posting this review is that we want this unit available for all of our future visits!

Mar 19, 2021 04:31:02 AM

Summary: We were looking for rest much needed R and R and this lovely condo exceeded our expectations. The location is spectacular literally on the beach...the place is beautifully equipped with everything you would need, and the whale viewing was perfect. It’s a very private location in a wonderfully quiet part of the complex, yet the pool and beach, plus Castaway Cafe are also right at your fingertips. We could not have asked for more!

Jan 23, 2021 06:00:05 AM

Summary: The property was very comfortable and everything worked for us. We enjoyed the beach access as well as the large well equipped kitchen. The bathroom was a nice size as well an everything looked very well put together. A nice place to stay!

Summary: Our stay was perfect for what we were looking for - close to the water, on the beach path, convenient to everything we needed. The condo was VERY clean which gave us peace of mind during these crazy times. Additionally communication with the host was excellent. Nothing negative that we can think of regarding the condo itself. The property amenities are a little dated if you are looking for luxury in that area but as far as maintenance and cleanliness, everything was well taken care of!Overall, a GREAT getaway spot!
