About the property

Bay Villa, Waterfront, 1 Bedroom, 2 Baths (sleeps 2)

E Komo Mai 'Welcome' to this WATERFRONT one bedroom upper level bay villa with the master bedroom overlooking the ocean!! We are a gated community. Enjoy a dream vacation with this stunning, extensively upgraded and customized oceanfront gold++++ villa; it is a rare gem among the Kapalua Bay Villas. With over 1200 square feet of luxurious living space, this two story townhouse style villa, with extended square footage, showcases expansive oceanfront views due to its amazingly close proximity to the water (you have to see it to believe it - photos just don't do justice). This is the perfect place for honeymooners, anniversaries, first timers to Maui, and everyone returning for special moments and memories.

This villa has been designed by a well-known designer with island inspired furnishings - it boasts a fabulous custom kitchen with solid cherry cabinetry, gorgeous granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances -- all overlooking the expanded living room with floor to ceiling windows and the breathtaking ocean beyond. There is a full bathroom on each floor, an expanded and oversized master suite with private lanai and jaw-dropping views of the ocean, the white sandy beach surrounded by the staggering beauty of lush landscaping and palm trees at the famed Kapalua Resort. Wake in the morning as the sun rises over the majestic beauty of the West Maui mountains, nestled beside the glistening ocean frontage. Begin your day in the newly designed master bath with an oversized, step-down shower and granite counters -- all with fabulous views of the ocean!!

Enjoy magnificent views of the famous Honolua Bay, the Plantation Golf Course & Clubhouse; watch fishing boats go by, cruise liners, catamarans, and wind surfers too... During the annual whale migration season you'll see these magnificent creatures come up out of the water; it's a marvel and a wonder to behold - right from the comfort of your living room or bedroom. The large and beautiful sea turtles come to a cove that is just in front of the villa. They can be clearly seen using Nikon Prostaff binoculars provided for our guests. Breathtaking!!

There is so much to do and enjoy… several beaches within walking distance, snorkeling, stand up paddle-boarding, many many fabulous restaurants and local fare too, luau's, zip-lining, two golf courses with a shuttle to take you to/from + 2 more courses a short drive away, scuba, fishing, sailing, parasailing, dinner sunset cruises, a pool literally steps away, and the list goes on.

Our villa, with spectacular 'makai and mauka' (ocean and mountain) views, will surpass your expectations; the sunsets you have to see to believe, windows open to the warm and gentle trade winds, the tranquility of the beaches, hearing the surf from your villa - it doesn't get any better than this!!

Why Russ chose Maui

We'd seen many properties before this one - once we saw this it was love at first sight. Wait till you see it, you'll see why. The view is overwhelming and truly awe inspiring.

What makes this villa unique

We believe once you arrive here all else will fade away. You'll feel a great sense of serenity as you watch the whales while relaxing from your living room or bedroom. It doesn't get any better than this.


Exceptional! 5/5 -

Amazing property

  • 5 of 5

This is my husbands and I second stay at this Beautiful villa. Everything about this place is absolutely perfect. The ocean front location is one of the best on the property. The villa is spotless and loaded with everything that you will need. There was one small issue with a broken lounge chair, and Russ was there promptly to the rescue. He is easy to deal with and very courteous. God willing, we will return again next year. Thank you Dollie for providing this heavenly get-away.

i have rented condos at Kapalua for many years, this is one of the better condos to stay in. beautiful ocean front view out the window, just as you see it in the advertised picture, only better when there. All the commendations are modern, up to date and very nice. The condo manager ( Russ) was especially nice and helpful with questions and issues we had. Would highly recommend this condo for a stay. bryan

Beautiful property but windy part of Maui

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay but would not return to Kapalua due to the extremely windy conditions. When we are in Hawaii we like to live outside, eating our meals on a deck. This unit had only a very small deck with no table & chairs. And it wouldn't be possible to use an outside deck due to the tremendous winds that occur on this, admittedly gorgeous, waterfront location. The view was stunning but we had to view it from inside most of the time due to the wind.

Owner's Response: I am sorry to hear you would not return to the Kapalua area; it is truly beautiful, the villa is truly beautiful, and with an unbeatable view. Traditionally, there are trade winds blowing throughout all the Hawaiian Islands. Generally they are gentle and feel great, but occasionally they are stronger because of storms or other inclement weather. We work hard to ensure your stay at our villa is all it could possibly be. As expressed in response to other reviews, we have expansive windows so that the gorgeous view can be enjoyed while dining indoors; outdoor dining is available poolside just a few feet away. I believe we should have had a 5 star rating for that which we provide to you and not for the inclement weather experienced. I do hope you will give Kapalua, Maui, and all the Hawaiian Islands another opportunity for a wonderful vacation. Aloha and Mahalo!!

5 Star Paradise with every amenity

  • 5 of 5

Hawai'i was always the planned destination for our 10 year anniversary. We started planning in early 2016 and when we saw the pictures posted on the listing for the villa we were hooked. The living room picture with the 2 chairs facing the ocean sealed the deal. Who wouldn't want this view! Trust me when I say that every description and every picture lived up to our expectation. What you see is what you get! The location of the villa has great ocean views and easy beach access. It was great to hop out the front door and be on the trail down to the beach or just for a nice ocean front walk. I really loved the number of windows throughout the entire unit. The kitchen, living room, upstairs bath room, bedroom (2 walls of windows) and even the stairwell has tremendous views. What a treat to see sunrise or the ocean from your bedroom window.....without getting up.

In addition to the fabulous views the villa came equipped with access for all of our needs: beach towels, beach chairs, umbrella, cooler, boogie boards. The kitchen was very functional and we appreciated the Starbucks elite coffee maker and simple kitchen tools like a frying pan, toaster, microwave, wine glasses and champagne flutes - just to name a few. It was so nice to have a washer and dryer in the villa - definitely handy to wash swimsuits and towels as needed. A few of our days were lazier days and it was nice to have a comfortable wrap around sofa just to kick back.

In addition to the all amenities the villa offers we really liked a few other details such as the books on Maui and Lahaina. We routed our map for the Road to Hana because these resources were right in the villa. We also appreciated the large resource book in the living room detailing shopping, restaurants, activities, emergency references, maps and other references. The level of service we received was equivalent to any high level chain hotel service. The level of hospitality we received via email or texts really enhanced our experience in terms of comfort. We really appreciated the "special delivery" gift we received from Dollie commemorating our 10th anniversary. This special touch meant a lot. This property delivers on every level and will make your vacation extra special and extremely memorable. We will definitely be back some day!

Beautiful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Stunning oceanfront views and comfortable villa. Russ was very responsive to our texts and calls - questions large and small. Dinner at Merrimans was wonderful at sunset and walking the trails of the resort in the morning was so nice. We hope to be back!!
