About Barbara Rubin

Our family has been vacationing at Maui Ka'anapali Villas for more than 25 years. Our daughters, Emily and Dori grew up on this stretch of beach, swimming, snorkeling, and hunting for beach glass. Our best memories are of the fun we had playing in the water and relaxing at this resort. We are grateful that we had the opportunity to buy a studio condo at MKV. We're excited to share it with you and your family, so that you may also make your own memories at this glorious place in the sun.

Barbara Rubin purchased this condo in 2011

Why Barbara Rubin chose Kaanapali

Maui Ka'anapali Villas is maintained and managed by Aqua-Aston Resorts. Each condo is privately owned, and the owners take great pride in the property. Every detail is considered so that our guests will enjoy their stay at this most beautiful resort.

What makes this condo unique

There is no better beach on Maui as far as our family is concerned. The water is pristine and warm. The clean, white sand offers a gentle entry into the ocean for swimming or snorkeling at the adjacent reef, which stretches 1 1/2 miles north. Walk on the boardwalk or beach, swim, or take the Free Green Ka'anapali Beach Trolley, 1/2 mile south to snorkel at Black Rock.

Great location close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

Maui Kaanapali Villas is an affordable, yet well-maintained and pleasant resort. We liked that it is located so close to the beach. It only takes 2-3 minutes from pretty much any spot on the resort to reach the beach. We also liked that the beach has a shaded grass area under large trees with free beach chairs. The pool is also great and comes handy when the ocean is too wavy or windy. Barbara's unit had everything we needed for our stay, including even some snorkeling equipment. The kitchen had a supply of essentials (salt, sugar, cooking oil, etc.) so that was very handy too. As some others have noted, the lanai is extremely narrow (can hardly fit two chairs) so we didn't use it much, but that was ok. The view from the suite is very nice and you can see the ocean pretty well. Overall, a great stay!

PS - for first timers in Maui - don't rush straight to Costco right from the airport. We did that and found that most of their produce is sold in gigantic packaging, so that you won't even be able to consume it within a week. There is a large Times Supermarket within a 3-minute drive from the resort (or you can even walk there), and a Foodland and Safeway in nearby Lahaina. I didn't notice much price difference between them and Costco, and the selection there is even better.

Owner's Response: Aloha Vadim, For a "first-timer", it sure sounds like you settled right in to Island life on Maui! You describe taking advantage of all of the amenities our beach-front Resort has to offer. One of our favorite things is to relax under the trees on the lawns adjacent to the beach. We watch watch spectacular sunsets there every night. I agree about not stopping at Costco on the way to the Resort, but for a different reason....We are always just too anxious to return to our Hawaii home! we look forward to your next trip back. A Hui Hou! Barbara & Howard

Best place on Maui

  • 5 of 5

Thank-you again Barbara for the wonderful condo, we loved everything. The condo is always so immaculately clean and well stocked with dishes, beach chairs, umbrella etc. The resort as usual lived up to their great standards, very friendly and helpful staff, free coffee in the morning and mai tai party on Wednesdays (not to be missed.) We have stayed in other MKV properties but your condo is our favorite by far, and the best deal on Maui. We will back next year for sure. First time visitors staying here will soon realize what a great deal they have on the best spot in west Maui. Thank-you for making the rental process so easy

Great location! Well maintained. We enjoyed the Castaways Restaurant. The boardwalk was convenient.

  • 5 of 5

The condo was exactly as advertised. It was very clean and fully equipped with beach gear. We would definitely come back to this property again. Barbara made our first experience with vrbo painless.

MKV Condo review

  • 5 of 5

Nice and convenient location. Clean and comfortable studio. Loved the walk on the boardwalk and snorkeling at Black Rock beach. Would have enjoyed having a reasonably sized balcony. Had a great partial view of ocean. Would stay again.

Owner's Response: Aloha Bob, Thanks for taking the time to share thoughts about your Maui stay at our Resort and condo. Our maid service does an incredible job to make sure the condo stays sparkling clean. We agree that the Beach Boardwalk offers miles of opportunity to stroll north along the reef and south to the larger hotels, restaurants, and shopping situated ocean-side. Our beach-front Resort is truly a gem! Mahalo! Barbara and Howard

Perfect Paradise Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We want to thank you Barbara for our wonderful stay in your unit 517 at MKV. The 5th floor condo is very well appointed, and has a beautiful view! Gorgeous sunsets, and we could even watch whales from the condo! The artwork and color scheme reminds us of the sea with its blues and greens. Comfy bed too! We do a lot of our own cooking, and the unit has all the tools you need to whip up a great meal. The BBQs at MKV are also very nice, immaculately maintained. MKV sits on one of the best beaches on Maui, with great swimming, snorkeling, and beach walking. The unit comes with chairs and an umbrella which we used a lot! There's also a beautiful pool at MKV, as well as the Castaway restaurant and bar right on the beach. Each morning we walked down the Kaanapali boardwalk to get the day started. Very close by we enjoyed the Fish Market for fresh fish and fish tacos, and Okazuya Asian takeout is outstanding. Also loved going to the Seahouse at Napili Beach for breakfast! LaHaina is just minutes away with all its shops and restaurants, and of course the famous Hula pie at Kimo's. We finally did the road to Hana this year, and that was an unforgettable experience. Again, thanks for sharing your beautiful condo with us, we plan on coming back!

Owner's Response: Aloha Tony and Janelle, It sounds like you had another great stay in our Maui condo. Just reading the detailed description of your vacation made me envious that I am not there. We're home enduring the cold weather, and could really use a Mai Tai from Castaway right about now! We look forward to your next trip back! A Hui Hou! Barbara and Howard
