Maui Kaanapali Villas
Maui Kaanapali Villas is about half a mile north of the Black Rock (north) end of Kaanapali Beach. It is possible to walk from here to the resorts, restaurants and shops of the main Kaanapali Beach area, but it is a long walk and you have to go out of the way to get around the Sheraton Hotel. Phone 808-667-7791.
Maui Kaanapali Villas has 266 rooms, most of which are condos with complete kitchens. Built in 1963. There are studios, one-bedroom and two-bedroom units. The building also has a few hotel rooms (without kitchens). There is one 6-story main building (the Aloha Tower) and four 2-story surrounding buildings. Only the rooms on the first and second floor have lanais big enough for chairs, while the rooms on the third floor and above have very narrow lanais with just enough room for you to stand. Most rooms do not have any view of the ocean. In the one-bedroom condos, the living room is separated from the bedroom by a folding wood door, not by a wall. Like all Maui condos, each unit is individually owned, so decor and upkeep can vary. All units are air conditioned. Most rentals are handled by Aston, so you may hear this called the Aston Maui Kaanapali Villas. Castaway is a very good and reasonably-priced restaurant on the ocean, near the pool.
