We were the first guest to stay in this beautiful villa. I have to say everything is exceed our expectation. The villa has a very nice ocean view from the living room and bedroom. It is clean and the interior is nicely decorated. The service provided by the management company is excellent. Dave is so easy to work with and he makes sure everything is perfect for our stay. We will definitely stay again in this beautiful villa.
What an absolutely awesome vacation!!! Generally my family and I tend to go for the all inclusive type vacation when we want to relax. So renting a villa, we were a bit skeptical about cooking our own meals and cleaning. However the way the villa was set up and our location to the pool and grill, I'm not sure we would do an all inclusive any time soon. We really enjoyed grilling while our girls swam right beside us and then we were all able to eat together poolside. Not to mention having breakfast on our lanai each morning whenever we wanted and not having to get the whole family up and ready to get to a buffet in time.
Being our very first time in Hawaii we found the location to be ideal. We were so close to great beaches to snorkel at as well as go into Lahaina for some Local Boys shaved ice! Also very close to the blow holes. The closest beach was a mere 10 minute walk through the beautiful resort. The General store on the resort had pretty much everything and anything one would need.
The villa itself that we stayed in was great. No complaints! The kitchen had stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops and was equipped with everything we needed and then some. The villa was spacious, the lanai had a beautiful view of the golf course and ocean. A huge bonus was the ensuite bathroom with the double shower heads! The pictures just don't do justice.
Big shout out to Dave from Platinum Maui Vacations for making renting this villa so easy. Our flight didn't land until 9:30 pm so by the time we got to Kapalua it was 11:30pm. Dave met up with us to give us the keys and any information we required. He was great!!!
All in all we were very satisfied!
Our stay was great - we enjoyed watching the whales from the lanai - the view is truly spectacular. For a couple the place is very spacious with all your needs covered. We really enjoyed having all of the beach amenities - chairs, umbrella and a fabulous cooler with wheels! If you are creative the kitchen is stocked with most of what you need. It would be fabulous if the owners could stock with a few more pantry basics, proper wine glasses, etc.
All in all a great stay that felt like home for the week!
We’ve stayed at the Kapalua Villas several times and this will be our preferred villa next year. It's perfect for us--great layout, modern look and feel, super clean, comfortable bed, and beautiful sunset views! Dave was great throughout the entire experience. Enjoyed every minute from anticipating the trip to the last second.
We had a terrific two weeks in Maui and Dave made it right. We stayed in two Kapalua Villas during our stay. This unit and another that Dave made available for about one half of our nights. This unit is a very nice unit with a street level entry. It has a very new kitchen and much of the remainder of the unit has been upgraded. Dave contacted us prior to our trip to let us know that there was construction going on in the unit above and it might be noisy for the second week. Dave offered multiple options to us including a full refund. We chose to move to another unit that Dave had available for the second week of our stay. Dave also refunded two nights rent for the inconvenience. The second unit was on the second floor with a great view of the golf course. It was a fully upgraded delight. Thanks Dave!
Dave, the property manager, was very promoted with communications. He even provided grocery stocking service for a nominal fee prior to our arrival. This was convenient since we arrived late. We had stayed in a villa before so we knew how quiet and convenient things are. Having nice beach towels and other amenities were a plus. Great stay!
Very clean, lots of amenities that met our every need, convenient to: grocery, running/walking trails, multiple beaches, "major" highway, shopping, restaurants, etc!!
Incredible vacation!! We bought tons of food when we arrived and one of our favorite things to do was cook and eat on the balcony drinking wine, watching the birds and looking out for whales!!
Whale watching, extreme relaxing, stress relief, sun therapy, surfing, paddle boarding, ocean kayaking, swimming, seasonal jet-skiing
