Sophisticated, Waterfront Living with Resort Pool, Hot Tub, & Beach Access

Aloha! Get ready to host your next family gathering or holiday celebration at this luxurious oceanfront resort condo with updated amenities and a private lanai. The resort boasts two pools, hot tubs, and beach access within walking distance.

This three-bedroom rental is at one of Maui’s most popular beachfront resorts, Kaanapali Shores, located right on North Kaanapali Beach. Spend your days in paradise snorkeling and surfing in the crystal clear waters (parking is available at the resort for a daily fee).

Luxurious, spacious, and oh so sophisticated, this fourth-floor oceanfront condo is a magical Maui destination featuring plenty of essential conveniences. With panoramic ocean views that are thoroughly jaw-dropping, you'll have a front-row seat to stunning sunsets and seasonal whale watching.

Step through the front door and into a sunlit and airy great room with 20-foot cathedral ceilings, plush rattan-framed furniture, and sliding door access out to the private lanai. The living area has a sofa and two matching armchairs, and the adjacent dining area has a large, elegant glass-topped table and seating for six where you can gather to plan out your days, play a few family board games, or enjoy delicious, home-cooked meals prepared in the fully equipped kitchen.

The kitchen has plenty of prep space, cabinets, and drawers stocked with accessories, plus a variety of updated, stainless steel appliances including a refrigerator, stove, microwave oven, toaster, coffee maker, and even a blender to make it easy to whip up a few refreshing adult beverages.

The main floor includes a master suite with king-size bed and en suite bathroom, plus a second bedroom with a king-size bed and another full bathroom. Up the spiral staircase, there's a third bedroom with two twin beds (that can be converted into a king bed with advance notice). With a total of three private bedrooms and a queen sofabed in the living room, this rental sleeps up to eight lucky guests.

Watch the sunset from your furnished lanai overlooking the beach. Hop online thanks to the complimentary WiFi and post photos and videos for everyone at home. Catch the local news and keep up with your favorite shows and movies on one of the large, flatscreen cable TVs. And with the private washer/dryer, you can keep your wardrobe fresh and clean for the duration of your stay.

On-site, have fun in the sparkling swimming pools or soak away your cares in the hot tubs. Take a short stroll to a nearby sandy beach where you can catch some rays. Visiting golfers won't want to miss the oceanfront Kapalua Golf Course, recognized as the best course in Hawaii for 10 consecutive years by Golfweek, located just five miles north.

If you're up for a little shopping, head south three miles to Whalers Village, a beachside mall featuring a variety of high-end boutiques and eateries including Leilani’s on the Beach. And for fine dining, we highly recommend Sansei Seafood Restaurant & Sushi Bar just five miles north, as well as Merriman's on Kapalua Bay. And don't forget to take the whole family for a world-famous frozen treat at Ululani's Hawaiian Shave Ice near the shore in Lahaina, five-and-a-half miles from your rental.

Reserve this extravagant, oceanfront home today and get ready to escape to paradise with the whole family or a group of friends! Thanks for choosing Vacasa Vacation Rentals of Hawaii, LLC!

Where do I begin? I loved the extra beach chairs, endless towels, view, location and so much more. Snorkeling right outside our balcony was amazing! It was a a great place to stay and I would stay here each time!
Marya C. Jul 2022
The views were spectacular! A few things in condo needed fixing and the Vacasa team was on it! The pull out mattress was terrible. Need to replace it!
Michael C. Jul 2022
Nothing more I could ask for on this stay
The view, the place ,the location. Everything was fantastic.
Kevin D. Mar 2022
This condo is right on the beach. It worked perfectly for the 2 families (2 adults and 2 kiddos in each family). Since the patio overlooked the beach, we could keep an eye on the kids while relaxing. The kitchen was well stocked with pots, utensils, plates, etc.
Jennifer W. Mar 2022
Loved this room. It was clean and comfortable. The stairs going upstairs would be challenging, so don’t assign anyone that would have trouble climbing those stairs, especially because there isn’t a bathroom up there. Full size kitchen was great! The view was unbelievable from the living room and the master, we saw whales everyday. Super close to the little private beach and pools. Walking distance to the grocery store, some restaurants, and the food truck park. Away from the big touristy spots, so it was pretty low key and quiet. The little beach bar attached our the place was just, ok. We walked down to Dukes a few times which was a better beach bar.
Would definitely stay here again.
Tony G. Mar 2022
Great access to the beach, plenty of parking close by, also close to elevator. Very soothing place to stay with the sounds of waves crashing right outside.
Flavia M. Feb 2022
This unit has an incredible view from balcony and master suite/ we saw whales splashing at the distance every day. The furniture could use some upgrade / specially the couch and living room. This resort also looks older but we preferred this unit due to having a fully stacked kitchen and three bedrooms. This is perfect for families. I would NOT stay here with small
Kids because the stairs could be dangerous for little ones.
Andrew W. Dec 2021
The room is absolutely fantastic. The large open doors that lead to the unobstructed views of the ocean are indescribable. Room was better than advertised: Bed and furniture were so comfortable could nap anywhere in the room after a day in the sun. Kitchen had everything to make your own meals and save a couple buck from eating out. Location is perfect. Beaches were never crowded, few steps to resort pools which were a blast. Bar/restaurant at resort had a great happy hour. This room/location had everything to where you didn't need to leave or go far to experience everything. Will def stay again, 5 out 5 stars!!
David B. Oct 2021
Great room and ocean view. Clean, modern and well maintained. Had every thing we needed. Outstanding grounds and restaurant. Close to shops and Whalers Village.
John Z. Oct 2021
Wonderful location, best views from the balcony and close to a lot of things. Restaurant and all pools open. Clean place on arrival but very warm. There was little to no airflow from A/C. Looked at air handler and noted the air cleaner was being sucked into the return. The filter was filthy with thick dirt and dust and hair. It hadn’t been changed since January. VACASA was contacted 3 times in 9 days about the issue. Each time promises that it would get taken care of. Customer service always answered and apologized but it was never fixed. Only way I would stay here again is if VACASA wasn’t managing it.
Manager response:
Thank you for staying with us, John. It is our privilege to hear from our guests and improve from their feedback, so thank you for providing your review, as well. We do not manage the air conditioners in this complex and are not allowed to work on them; however, the problem was resolved by the appropriate party. We hope you'll consider returning in the future!
Margaret M. Sep 2021
Beautiful and spacious condo with over equipped kitchen and very comfy beds. Great location with wonderful ocean views and walking distance to shopping plaza with large grocery store. The only issue we have found with this condo was no light on a balcony which made a difficult to enjoy this space after sundown. We would still recommend this place to everyone and hope to come back here in a near future. Aloha
Erike Y. Aug 2021
Pictures on website don't do the place justice. Perfect sunset views and could hear the waves crashing as you fall asleep. The home has everything you need in the kitchen...even a panini press. Plenty of space for our family of eight. The AC works great, but master bedroom can get a lot of sun, so can warm up if curtains are open all day. Would definitely stay again!!
Jessica W. Jun 2021
This unit is a wonderful vacation rental if you’re looking for a condo with resort amenities. Fun pools, pool bar and restaurant, and beachside for a dip in the ocean too. Clean beach towels whenever you want between 8am-5pm, means no laundry unless you want! A restaurant on the premise and many just across the street, also means you don’t have to cook unless you want. True vacation for this tired mama! The only negative was that there weren’t sheets for the pull out when we got there; but once Vacasa was made aware of the issue, the sheets were delivered. Thank you for a great stay!
Scott N. Jun 2021
I stayed here with my wife and 3 kids and it was awesome. Everyone had a bed, no one had to sleep on an uncomfortable sleeper sofa for the week (even though there is a sleeper sofa). The views are absolutely incredible and we loved the resort - a couple of pools, really good bar/restaurant and essentially a private beach next door. Bathrooms have been updated, beds were real comfy, new fridge, TVs in every room, kitchen was stacked, beach towels for everyone, and AC worked great. The kids loved the upstairs bedroom. A few minor cons - living room furniture wasn’t the most comfortable, carpet could probably use updated and even though the beds were great, the pillows could’ve been better. Once again, none were dealing breakers though, just some improvement ideas. We’d stay here again in a heartbeat!
Gena K. May 2021
The views can’t be beat, great little restaurant and bar on property. Also a great local restaurant and bar right across the street.
Condo was clean, bathrooms newly redone, just need to replace carpet. We will be back!
Joseph V. May 2021
We LOVED this balcony just above the beach and ocean. You’re just steps downstairs to the beach, and very close to the pool. The ice maker, starter bag of coffee, and chocolate macadamias are very nice amenities! This place is tired and could really use functioning locks on the patio doors, new carpeting that isn’t fraying, and a cooler and beach chairs would be greatly helpful to guests. Also, Vacasa isn’t easy to reach or get helpful answers from. My questions were met with unsure answers. If we had had any serious issues while there, I’m doubtful they would’ve been resolved. Even without needed updates, I think we would choose this condo again because of the location and VIEWS. I had considered renting #460 instead, but am so happy we picked #461 because the views are BETTER! We had a great time here. Thank you!
Manager response:
Hello, Joseph! Thank you for your feedback. We're overjoyed to learn that the balcony was a highlight of your stay! We have notified the local staff of your concerns regarding the door and carpet, and they are in the process of addressing these. We apologize for the poor correspondence and regret to hear this was your experience. We strive to have excellent, guest-focused service and appreciate this feedback as an opportunity to improve our interactions moving forward. We look forward to the opportunity to host you again in the future!
Leslee S. May 2021
We loved our stay. We only gave four stars because the air conditioner broke and it took two days for the repair.
Joy H. Mar 2020
The view was great. Very clean.
We had a problem getting in and took 2 hours because the keyless entry did not work.
yvette h. Feb 2020
The view from our 4th floor simply could not be beat. Directly over the ocean. Majestic!
Melissa H. Jan 2020
Wonderful view! Nice condo. Would have given 5 stars if they had beach chairs and boogie boards. I have stayed in multiple condos at Aston Kaanapali Shores and they have all had a closet with at least beach chairs. Overall great stay!
Jillian A. Dec 2019
The condo is in a great location and the views are awesome. Perfect for 6 people. Parking is convenient but expect to pay $9/day. The property is great with a little beach, pools, tennis and pickleball courts, outdoor grills. We were able to surf out front and that was awesome. They have surfboard and boogie board rentals as well. There's a great walking/running trail from the property down to Black Rock. The condo is a little dated, but you're in Hawaii, so who really cares. I would've given the condo 5 stars, however, it wasn't super clean when we arrived. The master bed had a soiled pillowcase with something questionable on it we'd rather not think about. The kitchen is adequate but could use a few things to improve your stay like Tupperware and sharp knives. We would've loved a bistro table on the deck, the table is so low you are looking out through the railing bars. Such a shame when you have such a nice view to take in while having your meals. Overall, I would definitely recommend this place.
Manager response:
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay! We have replaced the pillowcases and sharpened the knives. We appreciate you staying with us and hope to see you again!
Tamara T. Sep 2019
Spectacular view and spacious enough to fit the whole family comfortably! The gourmet kitchen had everything we could possibly need!
Cindy F. Jul 2019
Beautiful condo right on the water
Charlotte H. Jul 2019
You are right on the beach with great sunsets and islands on each side of you.
Kari M. Jun 2019
Clean condo, great location, beautiful view, nice amenities, comfortable unit.
Lawrence B. Apr 2019
This property was awesome. We watched whales every morning and saw beautiful sunsets every night. Perfect location in Maui! We did a 1/2 day snorkeling trip through seamaui that was amazing. But also was amazing was snorkeling right near the beach. Would definitely return. My only regret is that we didn’t stay long enough.
Brenda G. Mar 2019
It was perfect. Right on the beach. Good proximity to most everything.
Mary O. Feb 2019
The reviews didn’t exaggerate. The whale activity could be seen from the balcony all day long and we couldn’t have found a room closer to the water. We we’re delighted to find the kitchen filled with plenty of tools to make our meals. The location was perfect for touring all parts of the island.
Shannon D. Dec 2018
Awesome unit and location. Pool area and beach were great.
Doreen W. Nov 2018
We saw whales from the lanai! Beautifully furnished. Anything you could possibly need : laundry detergent, beach towels, plenty of bath towels, coffee, tea, sugar & delicious box of Hawaii chocolates!
Our lanai felt like it hung over the water!
Watched our own private sunset! Gorgeous! Would go back in a heatbeat! 5 stars☆☆☆☆☆
Kevin S. Oct 2018
Location was great
Jason F. Aug 2018
We loved our trip to Maui! The home was beautiful and fit our family of 6 perfectly. The home was easily the best located unit in the whole property overlooking the ocean and away from the noise of the pool area.
Nicole F. Jul 2018
The Condo was very comfortable and the Vacasa team was thoughtful and attentive to our needs. Much appreciated the coffee that was provided for our use. We arrived pretty late at night and were able to have a fresh brewed cup of coffee first thing in the morning while enjoying the view from our balcony - priceless.
Karen C. Jun 2018
This condo has the BEST view! It feels like it is just you and the ocean. The condo was very clean and well stocked for 6 adults. The beds were very comfortable. We would highly recommend this property!
ana j. May 2018
Is the perfect location ,everything so close restaurants, shopping center, beach and is perfect to relax.
Kevin C. May 2018
If you ever wanted a place where you could sit on the balcony and spit a macadamia nut into the ocean, this is it. Not that you would want to do that, mind you, but if you did.....well, this is most definitely the place. We enjoyed the room, the views, the balcony and the beach down below. The view was post card quality and we didn't miss a single sunset. The size of the condo was perfect for six people and we enjoyed not only the offerings of the resort itself but the close proximity to other resorts and their food offerings. I'd rent this room again in a heartbeat.
Cammy & Robert C. Apr 2018
Loved hearing the waves and being ocean front with unobstructed water views. Some issues with the unit (maintenance wise) which caused some problems for the first few days of our trip, including one sleepless night for the entire family. Although the view was magnificent, we would not rent this unit again.
Trudyann W E. Mar 2018
Great view of the whales swimming buy, right on the ocean. Nice resort, good restaurant. Unit was well equipped and maintained.
Sandra H. Mar 2018
Unit 461 at Ka'anapali Shores is a home away from home to die for. This 2 bedroom and loft comfortably slept our family of 7. My grandsons ages 10 and 7 thought their loft bedroom was cool and loved the circular staircase to their room. The view from the lanai, right on the ocean, was spectacular and great for whale watching. The only downside to this unit, rented from Vicasa, was the excessive fees for booking and cleaning, equal to an additional night.
Teresa R. Feb 2018
Whole process went smoothly. Good location. Clean.
Gerald M. Feb 2018
Awesome view and great unit. Entire family enjoyed the property. Restaurant on site is good and has great service and food
Thomas H. Sep 2017
Ultimate location. 50 yards from the water. Easy in/out parking. Hear the ocean waves crashing on the sand. Wait until they replace the the fan motor for the A/C. Very loud. Ruined the soothing sounds of the ocean.
Jose U. Jul 2017
Perfect location. Plenty of room for a family of 6. Amazing location for a family and activities. Very very close to shopping, dining and golfing. Can't ask for a better beach for snorkeling. AMAZING . Kids love it.
Seo K. Jul 2017
This resort is perfect for family, friends, and couples. Reasonably priced, awesome activities, and friendly services. The room #461 is the on top of everything. Literally you can see the ocean right in front of you. From this unit to the beach takes 1min. My family and I enjoyed the stay very much. Thank you!
Kirk F. Jun 2017
Great place right on the water. A little older than some but we consider it a hidden gem... Hard to beat. Thank you.
Carolyn L. May 2017
This a beautiful condo, couldn't ask for a better view. If your thing is sunsets, well sit back and enjoy the spectacular show each evening! The unit is well stocked and the artwork the owner has chosen is unique and well appointed. You won't be sorry you rented this condo!
Kevin B. Mar 2017
Great location, particularly during whales season. Also, you can snorkel along the shore in front of the condo. This is the third time we stayed at Kaanapali Shores and wouldn't go anywhere else.
Elizabeth . Mar 2016
I HIGHLY recommend this condo. It was perfect for our family. It was a great location in Kaanapali. The lanai was the absolute best part as it faced the ocean and each evening we enjoyed beautiful sunsets. We visited during the whale season so we could sit on our lanai and watch the whales breaching. It was spectacular. The Aston property was lovely with a great pool, beach, and bar/restaurant. We had a wonderful family vacation! The property manager was very attentive checking on us to ensure we arrived safely and everything was in order. All in all this condo was perfect and we plan to come back to stay again. Thank you!
Steffen . Mar 2016
We stayed in 461A and you cannot get any closer to the water! It was an awesome unit for my family of 6. Beds were totally comfortable and the unit was very clean and very well laid out. We LOVED the new pool!
Karen . Jul 2015
I highly recommend #461. It is only a few steps to the water with beautiful views. Very well stocked with table wear, cookware and appliances. Much island art and decoration with comfortable, well maintained furnishings. There were even beach towels and two beach chairs. Everything was as advertised. Steps and elevator are very close to unit. Our family of four adults and two teens really enjoyed our week in this condo.
Anonymous . Nov 2014
First time to Hawaii, awesome. The room with ocean view and quick access to the beach is over the top.
Brenda . Nov 2012
Staying here was comfortable and peaceful and the view was beautiful. We stayed here for two weeks celebrating our 45th wedding anniversary. Our daughter and her husband traveled with us and both couples were delighted with the beautiful ocean view and comfortable accommodations. From the glorious sunrises in the morning to the brilliant sunsets over the ocean, this was the perfect setting for our getaway. This property sits directly on the ocean front and offers a panoramic view of beautiful west shore of Maui. It is close to groceries, shops, attractions, and amazing beaches. We felt at home there and will choose it again next time we go to Maui.
