Waterfront condo - perfect for family getaway w/ nearby beach, hot tub, & pool

This upscale one-bedroom vacation condo at the Maui Kaanapali Villas is the perfect place for a romantic getaway or a small family adventure. With room for up to six guests, a sandy beach just steps away, and access to the resort's pools and hot tubs, you're sure to have the vacation of a lifetime here.

From your private home away from home, you can take a short walk to the sandy beach for a day making castles or surfing. The resort itself offers amenities like a shared hot tub, sundry shop, and a pool that you can see from your condo (additional resort fees apply*). For a pre-beach breakfast, treat yourself to a meal at the Castaway Cafe within walking distance.

Located on the second level, you'll have views of the ocean and the pool from the spacious deck. Enjoy a glass of wine and some privacy on your furnished lanai.

Inside the 900-square-foot condo are accommodations for up to six, as well as sophisticated decor and high-quality furnishings and materials. The great room welcomes you with cushy couches, a four-seat table (with extra seats at the counter), and a well-equipped kitchen with new stainless steel appliances where you can fix simple snacks or easy meals to save a little bit of money on dining out. Stream music on your phone with the use of the provided WiFi.

The spacious bedroom has a second TV and two queen-size beds so one family or a few close friends will have lots of space to spread out. When you wake up, you can pad across the plush carpet and open the lanai doors to let in the ocean breeze. If you have more guests, there is a new queen-size pullout sofa with a plush eight-inch mattress in the living room as well, so a total of six travelers can stay here at once. The updated bathroom features two separate sinks and stand-alone shower. If you run out of clean clothes, there are shared laundry facilities available (please note that they are coin-operated).

In addition to the resort pool and hot tub, this condo puts you close to Lahaina's attractions. Just a few miles away is Whalers Village, where you can dine, shop, and stroll. All over the island are spots to snorkel and surf, making this place a paradise!

Your family and friends will love staying at Kaanapali Villa on your next Hawaiian getaway. Book today through Vacasa Vacation Rentals of Hawaii, LLC!

Exactly as represented in description and pictures. Couldn't have asked for a nicer location and condo.

My husband and I, very recently stayed here the week of our wedding (10/7-10/13). This corner unit is absolutely beautiful. It's completely updated, quiet, spacious, and offers the most peaceful and relaxing views. Perfect for that early morning quiet cup of coffee or a relaxing evening enjoying a cocktail & unwinding - on occasion, listening to the music from the Castaway Restaurant. We have stayed in this unit before and have met the owner. He, as well as Vacasa Property Management are super nice and pleasant to work with.

This is our one and only vacation spot.
Daniel & Courtney D. Sep 2018
This was a fantastic condo in a great area. Doesn't have that big resort feel. Literally steps from the beach as we spent every morning and every night on it. Nice restaurant/bar right outside your front door as well. We will be looking to book again and will bring the kids next time.
David F. Aug 2018
This was a fantastic stay. Excellent beach walk area and unit had everything needed to live comfortably. We spent quite a bit of time off the resort but the coming home feeling made the evenings worth coming home.

Wonderful vacation, friendly staff, great location and view..Aloha! 🤙🏼

very nice condo, exzellent (in front of the pool and a couple of meters from the beach), we loved it, we come again :-).

The two beds in the bedroom were nice and comfy. One was a double and other was a queen. We rented a crib and it was still spacious. No bathtub which could be a problem for young ones, luckily we rented a baby bathtub which fit in the kitchen sink. The kitchen was well stocked and the living room was, well, very livable! A cable TV guide would be nice, the guide button on the tv didn’t work. The unit is on the second floor so with grandma, Mom, and a baby, we had to go back and forth to get everything up. The beach walk is great for exercise in the morning. Vacasa called to make sure we were settled in and also called us the day before check out. The unit was very clean. Beach toys were on the patio, beach towels in the closet. Great family condo.

Our stay was wonderful! Very close to the Castaways restaurant , swimming pool and beach!

This is the third condo we've stayed in at Maui Kaanapali Villas and definitely our favorite! We enjoyed the ocean view and proximity to the beach and pool, and the condo itself is so spacious and nicely decorated.
Nilda D. Dec 2017
The condo had everything we needed for a family vacation, I only wished it had the use of the washer and dryer in the condo. This was our 20th visit to Kaanapali, my family LOVE this unit, sitting on the lanai we could see the occasional whale breach.!!!.. the Kitchen was in need of a new faucet and the rental company was very helpful and took care of this issue promptly. We will be back!☺

Love this place, hope to get back soon.
Loren B. Oct 2017
Vacasa is a great company to work with. Maui kaanapali villa is a great to stay. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Hope to be back next year.

We stayed here the second week of June and have to say it is a great place to stay with one of the top beaches on Maui.
Dallas C. May 2017
My husband and I planned this trip in 2016, for our 26 yr anniversary, we were married in Maui .Our son and his girlfriend were coming also.On April 1st 2017 my husband passed unexpectedly. I thought about not going, but then again life is for the living and our son had never been to Maui. So with a heavy heart, I decided to go.I know he would have wanted me to go, that was who my husband was,he treated me like the most important person in his life. He was the most amazing man I've ever known . I made some amazing new memories, my son also proposed to his girlfriend.She did say yes. Thank you MKV for helping me with my grief, no place like Maui❤️❤️❤️❤️
Mandy M. Apr 2017
Great location-steps away from both beach and pool.
Mitch T. Dec 2016
This property is a hidden gem.. the beach is on the quiet side of kaanapali and the accommodations and amenities were perfect for our family of 4.... proximity to whalers village, lahaina and down the road from Napili and Kapalua is perfect. If we return to Maui, this will be our 1st option for a place to stay..

We have stayed at MKV several times in the past and enjoy the beautifully landscaped grounds and relaxed atmosphere here. The oceanfront location of this resort on the northern end of Kaanapali beach make it a great starting point for walks along the boardwalk, and free shuttle to Whalers Village allow for easy access to shops and restaurants without the hassle of driving. Unit 293 was nicely outfitted with two queen beds in the master bedroom and a pull out sofa bed in the living room. The large lanai has a nice view of the resort grounds and ocean. The condo had everything we needed for a family vacation and we would be happy to return again.

This was my family's first trip to Maui and we chose this location and particular condo based on a friend's recent stay at the same complex but different condo. This one met our needs plus some and after being there for 10 nights - it is just what it promised. It was clean, well furnished and supplied and very comfortable. We traveled with our 16 and 11 year old daughters. My youngest ended up sleeping on the pull-out sofa. Not the most comfortable sofa bed but I think there is an unwritten rule that they are supposed to be uncomfortable. They also had a blow-up bed available if we wanted. The large chaise lounge was perfect for a quick nap too (at least that is what my husband said). My husband and I loved going out onto the very large lanai and enjoying coffee each morning. Loved the pool noodles and boogie boards that were there for our use as well. The grounds are lovely and well manicured. The pool is VERY clean and they are so thorough on cleaning it every morning. We didn't have the best weather but it didn't stop us from getting out and enjoying it. I loved that Castaways (the restaurant located on-site (unaffiliated however)) came in and took drink and food orders in the pool, something they began doing in January. The pool was never crowded (like the big resorts nearby). During our entire stay, there was one time that we had maybe 15 in the pool at once. If I had one thing I would change, it would be wishing I had use of the washer and dryer in the condo - when you stay for as long as we did - that would of been really helpful. Especially since you only had 4 towels supplied by the condo for the pool/beach. They got pretty dirty/sandy after just a few days. The laundry facilities is back by the front road where the deliveries are made and it was a hike to get there with a big heavy bag of laundry - which I spent 3 hours doing one day. But the owner of the condo did supply laundry detergent boxes and a basket so that was nice. Overall, we had a great time and we loved this condo!
Rodney . May 2016
It is a beautiful unit with a wonderful location. The unit has views of the ocean and the pool. Just steps away from the Castaway and the beach walk goes right by the unit.
Rachelle . Apr 2016
We have stayed at the Maui Kaanapali Villas several times and this was by far the best condo. It was well furnished, very clean and the location was wonderful for lounging on the lanai. The rental company was easy to work with. We would definitely love to stay here again.

This unit (#293) is very spacious with a large single bedroom and is on the top (2nd) floor of the Emerald building; it has everything you will need to have a great vacation. You will love the easy access to the pool area and to the Castaway Restaurant/Bar, where you can have great food (b-fast, lunch, dinner) at very reasonable prices. You will also love watching the evening sunsets from the lanai or strolling the beach. Walk down to the Black Rock for the cliff dive torch lighting ceremony or a morning walk up the beach to Duke's for breakfast. The MKV condo is also the northern most stop on the free trolley-bus route; you can take this bus to visit the other major resort hotels and shopping areas on Kanaapali.

This was the best stay, ever. Relaxing location, nice amenities, nicely decorated...we were in a dream. We loved the pool, the restaurant, the free coffee every morning and we were close to everything that we wanted to do. We rented SUPs and watched sea turtles swim underneath us. We want to go back, and can we buy this property, please?
S. L. Jul 2015
This condo was perfect for our family! We have two boys who were constantly going to and from the pool so we could easily keep an eye on them from the balcony. The ocean was also right there so we could choose on going to the beach or pool everyday. The unit was nicely decorated and clean and had a full kitchen. Castaway's was right there if we needed to order food or drinks. The parking was easy. We loved everything and hopefully plan to stay here on our next vacation to Maui!
Amy . Jun 2015
My family and I have stayed in numerous condos on the property, but not this particular one. I liked it because you have the mountain and water views. If the pool is crowded, especially with small, loud children, it can be a little annoying. The unit was well stocked, very clean and very comfortable. I would stay in this unit #293 again.

Loved, loved, loved this condo and property! Going back next year and want to bring our kids. This is the best spot for everything, walk to beach, cocktails, food and pool is quiet. Loved sitting on lanai for coffee or cocktails! Can't wait to go back next May.

Great Location - Two Queen Beds - One Bedroom Sleeps 6. Our favorite condo! We've stayed in many condos on Maui, and this is bar far our favorite. It's set up well. Perfect location. Close to the beach and pool, but still quiet in the evening and mornings. I love the view from the 2nd floor lanai. Beds were comfortable and the A/C was a plus since it was so hot this trip. The kitchen was set up nicely and well equipped. Loved having the beach chairs and boogey boards. The rental company was very helpful and took care of any issues promptly. We look forward to renting this condo again in the near future.

We loved our stay and never wanted to leave. Everything you need is here and it is clean and well looked after. We loved the view over the pool and ocean. We loved the peacefulness of the property. We loved being able to walk to neighboring properties. We loved walking along the board walk in the mornings. We loved hopping on the trolley and going to the Whaler's Village. We loved snorkeling with fish and turtles. The only disappointment was that the cafe on the property, Castaways, was closed for renovations for the week we were there.
