Maui Kaanapali Villas on the Beach
Built in the late 60s and meticulously maintained and managed by the professional staff of Aston hotels, Maui Kaanapali Villas offers the perfect respite from the busy world we live in. MKV used to be the hotel at the Kaanapali Airport:
One-bedrooms have a private bedroom and sofa sleeper (900 sq
(1200 sq ft)
ViewsWhile most of the rooms in the Aloha tower have "garden views", (i.e., gardens on the property), there are several rooms that have a direct view of the pool and ocean. If you come January-March, bring your binoculars and watch the whale show from your room.
Dophin and Emerald have "ocean side-views", meaning that when you step onto your lanai you can look out past the main pool to the ocean.
Note: the pool can get noisy until it closes at 10pm and the drums of the luau from the neighboring hotel can be loud.
Coconut and Banyan have garden views and a smaller, private pool. Hint: It's quieter back here.
PoolsThere are two pools: the main pool between the Dolphin and Emerald buildings by the Casaway Cafe. It was completely remodeled in 2007 with added hot tub:
and a smaller pool between the Banyan and Coconut buildings. This pool will be expanded and remodeledby July 2008.
Getting AroundTry the Kaanapali Trolley. It's free and runs all day long from MKV to Whaler's Village.
Or purchase a ticket on the Sugar Cane Train. It runs from the train station just outside MKV property, all the way to Lahaina and back.
DiningTry the Castaway Cafe. Good food, right on the beach.
ViewsFrom the beach you can see Lanai and Molokai. In the distance between the two you can see Oahu.
Molokai with Rainbow
And there's a wealth of sunsets to savour.
