Why TOM AND LUCINDA COFFEY chose Kaanapali
This is the closest building to the ocean in all of Hawaii. This building boasts the best views in all of Maui. It is less than 2 miles from Lahaina the famous Whaling village.

I'd give it a 4.5 if we could. Even a 4.75. It is absolutely great. Upon arrival the access to the main road and highway is great. There is plenty of open parking, not once did we feel stressed about parking close. Upon arriving the front desk staff were great and very chill. The check in system was a breeze and access to the suite no problem. The owners system of checking in and cleaning was almost TOO simple, I actually texted to make sure there wasn't something we were supposed to be doing. The views and sounds from the ocean are amazing. The kitchen well stocked with all of the kitchen utensils you would need. Unfortunately the closer of the two beaches is eroding in front of the Beach Club hotel to the north but for now you can still access it. They have sand-bagged it and they are trying to save it but you can definitely tell some days they're not winning the battle. However there is a great beach south as well. When our daughter went to sleep a good smart TV with Netflix and Youtube was a welcome addition. We used the pool, BBQ, and lounge area a lot. The other guests and owners were very nice and the maintenance guy was super with us and our kid. The beach gear was a welcome addition to the unit and was awesome for the short walk to either of the beaches. On top of all this there is a unit right beside you (that I also believe the same owners have) and it is amazing how well built the building is. We never heard anyone our whole 10 days.
There were really only a couple things that we noticed that didn't make it 5*. First, the HVAC system in the unit and the AC units (which are directly below the lanai, granted 10 floors down) for the building were quite loud. So much so that when the AC would kick on it would wake up our daughter sometimes. The corner unit is great except you face a huge hotel. While the hotel was good about not having late luau's and weddings you definitely notice the lights constantly (making it harder to sleep on the couch) and sounds coming from them next door. Lastly we had our toddler with us and some of the furniture (namely the tabels) and tiling in the bathroom had very sharp edges.
Overall with how amazing our place was, the access to grocery and the highway, and how comfortable we were after a few days in the unit these are minor complaints. Therefore don't take them as reasons not to stay here, just things to know if you're sensitive to this. We loved the complex and will stay here again.
The View...it is amazing. Off of the balcony or while eating a meal. We were always searching for whales or enjoying sunsets. There is a little wear and tear on the place, but it is pretty much in the condition that you see in the pictures. The unit has most of the comforts of home. There are birds visiting regularly on the balcony. We enjoyed them, but they do leave a bit of a mess on the balcony. The pool is heated and even though the weather was a little cool during our stay, we were able to enjoy the pool. Beside the pool is a Cabana with a kitchen and bathrooms and puzzles and books - all very nice and useful for our young family. Because the unit is not a mega resort, going to the pool or your car was just a few steps away. There really isn't much of a beach at this time, but there is a beautiful boardwalk just minutes away that will take you to the beautiful Kaanapali beach area. We really enjoyed our stay and hope to be back again some day.
Property Outstanding, Service Disappointing
Bottom Line: Property: 5 stars, Service, 3 stars
** There isn't a better location on Maui for whale watching. The views cannot be beat anywhere.
** The condo was very, very nice. Clean, well equipped (mostly. Get a cookie sheet or roasting pan).
** Only one roll of toilet paper was provided, no paper towels, and no napkins. When I inquired about getting more, I was very politely told that guests were expected to provide their own and that I could purchase them from the nearby supermarket. My wife and I have been renting properties in Hawaii and other locations for 30 years and have never encountered this attitude. I consider this a high end property and was disappointed by this lack of consideration for persons traveling thousands of miles to enjoy the beauty that is Hawaii.
Note to management: Please remove 'paper towels' from your list of amenities and change 'toilet paper' to 'toilet paper (one roll only)'.
We are very sorry to learn that the guest could not find the two extra rolls of toilet paper that we provide to all of our guests. Each accommodation is provided a total of three rolls of toilet paper with one on the roller and the other two placed underneath the bathroom sink. There is one roll of paper towels provided under the kitchen sink. We misunderstood that the guest was having a hard time locating the initial paper goods that were provided and were under the impression that they were looking for extra paper goods.
We won’t stay here again.
This place is seriously aging and dirty. Window in the bathroom has a big gap on the metal frame. The sliding glass doors to the patio have no lock at all. The patio table had a cardboard box under one of the table legs to balance the table.
The whole place hasn’t been really cleaned for quite some time. We were afraid to take our shoes off.
The only good part is the view. Would not stay here again.
This Maui Kai top corner unit is possibly the best condo location on Maui. It is just a few feef from the ocean with dramatic views out the front and from the side window We always promptly respond to any guest concerns. A cleaning issue would be immediately rectified by our cleaning service. We just ask to be contacted while still in the condo instead of waiting until after departure. In the many years we have owned this unit there has never been an instance of anyone scaling 10 floors and gaining access to the lanai. A simple phone call or email would have solved this issue. There is absolutely no cardboard box under any table leg, none. These end units have side windows and bathroom windows providing additional views. These end units are exposed to the winds which have been extreme this winter causing some damage to the bathroom window. This does not make the bathroom unusable A replacement is on order. The review was from a repeat guest. They must have been pleased with their previous rental.
The leather sleeper sofa and 4K smart TV are a couple months old. The kitchen and bathroom cabinets are Asian Mahogany with rare Capalavaro granite tops. There is a King Tempurpedic bed with protective encasements. The windows have pull down coverings allowing for the full window dramatic views out the front and side windows. The bathroom and kitchen have upgraded Grohe fixtures.The appliances are practically new.
Great property! Awesome sunsets from the Lanai!
My wife and I stayed in the unit from August 29, 2017 to September 13, 2017. It was perfect for our needs. The view from the Lanai, of the islands of Lanai and Molokai, is wonderful. The sunset viewing from the Lanai is amazing. The kitchen was well stocked with all the dishes and cookware you could ever need. The telescope in the unit was fun to use, and really came in handy many times for star viewing (incredible night sky), and for scoping out distant watercraft. The fold up Cabana, and the body board, in the hall closet, were great for beach time. Cody, our contact, was easy and fast to communicate with. The only significant issue with the unit was a technological one. The WIFI was very inconsistent, so that needs an upgrade. The clothes iron in the unit is leaking, so that needs replacing (not much of an issue, I suppose, if you are not ironing clothes after using the on floor laundry facilities). All in all though, the complex and the unit are darn good, and we would stay in the unit again.
Thank you for staying in my condo and for letting me know about the iron. Will replace it asap. The Wifi is supplied by the management so upgrades will need to come from them but I'll let them knw there are issues. I put a telescope in the unit last year and it has been a success--guests seem to like it better than the binoculars. Thank you for mentioning the ocean views--whenever I get a chance to stay at my Maui condos, that view of the ocean and islands never fails to amaze me--never seen a view that compares to that one.Glad to hear you enjoyed your stay and hope you will contact me for future reservations.
Very nice apartment with an extraordinay view.
This deluxe oceanfront corner condo boasts fantastic ocean views from every angle; the living room and kitchen have a large side picture window and huge glass sliding doors opening up to the expansive ocean horizon and gorgeous islands of Molokai and Lana'i. To add to the ocean beauty, we have installed floor to ceiling mirrors on the living room walls for reflected ocean views everywhere you look! luscious mountains behind you at the same time, West Maui mountain views to be had from the bedroom and bathroom.
Watch whales jump and teach their young during season (Dec-April) from your private balcony. Enjoy a sparkling coral reef year round from the mango wood outside furniture set. And all year long, be thrilled with the frequent visits of the Hawaiian Green sea turtles, considered sacred by the Native Hawaiians. If you are really lucky, you may spot the many pods of local spinner dolphins and the occasional monk sea frolicking in these protected waters of West Maui.
Other Activities: Mini Golf
