About the property

Villa, 2 Bedroom + Living Room (Bed)/Kitchen, 2 Bath, (Sleeps 8)

An UNBELIEVABLE WAY to END 2018 and START 2019!! Our OCEANFRONT and OCEANVIEW villas have a SPECTACULAR view of the ocean. The two bedroom with living room/kitchen OCEANFRONT villa is guaranteed for Friday, 12/21/18 - 12/28/18 ($7,500 for the week). This villa is located in the North resort. The two bedroom with living room/kitchen OCEANVIEW villa is guaranteed for Saturday, 12/29/18 - 01/05/19 ($7.500 for the week). This villa is located in the South resort. Rates represent a 40%+ discount from renting directly from Starwoods/Vistana for a similar villa. Each villa can also be partitioned to rent as either a one bedroom (with an additional kitchen/living room) or a one bedroom studio (single room with a kitchenette). If you are interested in another calendar week, we are happy to check with the resort to see if it has capacity to move the reservation to the week you are requesting.

These beautiful, luxurious, stylishly appointed, spacious villas, right on Ka'anapali Beach, are located in the five-star Westin Vacation Resort. The resort is located on one of Maui's most spectacular oceanfront vistas. The ocean side property is very private with awesome views and sounds of the ocean. The ocean next to the resort provides outstanding snorkeling with frequent whale sightings in December and January.

Each two bedroom villa is three large rooms and totals approximately 1,800 square feet not including the balconies. There is one bedroom (king size bed), one bedroom studio (king size bed, pull out couch, separate kitchen), one large family room/kitchen (with a pull out couch), and two large full bathrooms. There are two washer/dryers within the villa. The villa sleeps eight people. In addition, rollaway single beds can be provided at no additional cost.

Every comfort and convenience is provided to make you feel completely relaxed while you experience all the fun and exotic beauty of this tropical paradise. Offering plenty of room for family gatherings as well as entertaining, this gracious villa is truly a home-away-from-home.

The grounds of the resort include two large pools with a waterslide and a separate Kid's pool, four outdoor whirlpools/hot tubs, outside gas barbecue grills, a game room with a pool table and video games, a full fitness center with steam/sauna and over 10,000 sqft of tranquility in the luxurious Heavenly Spa. There is a board walk along the beach that allows you to walk to nearby restaurants, such as Dukes.

There are three restaurants on site at the resort that serve great food (all three meals) in case you do not feel like cooking in your kitchen. There are also two stores on-site that sell food that is ready to put right on the grill.

Our villa is five minutes from Lahaina, and two minutes from Whalers Village. A free private shuttle takes you to Whalers Village, other Starwood hotels (the Sheraton and the Westin), and Lahaina. The resort is about 30 minutes from the airport.

About Mike

My wife and I are blessed with 3 great kids, two who are married, and we are expecting our first grandchild in 2018. We love to spend time together as a family and have found heading to Maui is an incredible way to end the year and begin the new year. We have vacationed in Maui during Christmas and New Year's week for nine of the past twelve years.

Mike purchased this villa in 2006

Why Mike chose Lahaina

Simply said, we have found the Kaanapali beaches and the Westin villas to be high end and luxurious, as well as very welcoming to families. The resort is safe and very well-run and maintained. The ongoing service and support when onsite is excellent. We own one villa during Christmas week and two villas for New Year's week.

What makes this villa unique

Our family has many activities we seem to gravitate to every year - snorkeling, swimming, going on a catamaran, zip lining, riding bikes down Haleakala (Maui's volcano), enjoying all of Maui's varied climates, toggling between eating out and using the resort's gas barbeque grills, and generally just relaxing beside both the pool and beach. Many of us also enjoy the Sunday NFL and NCAA bowl games by the swimming pool bar & grill!

Celebrate New Years in Maui!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing oceanfront view where we could hear the waves and watch the whales passing by. The amenities, service and staff at the Westin were top notch. New Years on the beach setting off fireworks and watching the excitement of other families heading out to do the same was a highlight for our boys. We loved walking the beach, heading out for an ocean swim and exploring the other beaches in the area. Our favourite beach was a short drive away at Fleming beach park. We had great wave days and enjoyed the amazing views.

Always wonderful!

This is our 3rd trip to the Westin Villas. Great location, service second to none, and a wonderful property. Ocean front on the 6 floor was spectacular. We will be back... hopefully soon.

Excellent Xmas stay

  • 5 of 5

Spent Xmas week at this unit located in the Westin Villas North complex. Location on Kaanapali Beach was spectacular. Nice swimming directly in front of the hotel along with okay snorkeling from the same beach. Spectacular snorkeling was a very short 10 minute drive just past Kapalua. Unit was exceptionally clean and comfortable. The view was unbelievable Ocean Front view on the 5th floor. If you wanted to hand pick a location within the unit to spend a week, this was the spot. Took our two adult children and their significant others. The six of us were comfortable in the unit. With the exception of breakfast, we ate all of our meals outside of the unit, although we did see that there were nice barbeques available if you wanted them. Nice amenities at the hotel, which included lots of lounge chairs and umbrellas around the pools (of which there were too many to count). You could also get lounge chairs and umbrellas set up for you on the beach for a charge to your unit. We enjoyed meals and drinks poolside, all of which were easily charged to the room. Nice little pool side restaurant/bar which was conveniently located. Watched Santa arrive by Outrigger Canoe from one of the two lanais in the room on Xmas morning which was a nice end to our week. Would not hesitate to rent this unit again. Very enjoyable and comfortable week in Maui.

We will be back!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time in this suite and at the Westin property. We loved the ocean front views especially since New Year is the beginning of the whale season; we saw several whales from our lanai. The whole property is impeccably kept as were the suites. The owner of this property was a pleasure to work with and there were NO glitches in the reservation process in advance or upon our arrival. The Westin shuttle bus is a unique bonus; we didn't rent a car and never felt we needed one. Our daughter loved the kids club; a bonus for moms and dads to kickback for some adult time by the pool. My only caution would be the location of the suite in proximity to the Westin's annual New Year's Party, especially if you have little ones who are in bed early. The music was beyond LOUD, which woke our daughter and we didn't get to sleep until it ended at 1:15 a.m. HOWEVER... I must say that the Westin handled the situation to their usual standard. They received many complaints that night, and it seems that this particular year was an unusual circumstance. They compensated us WELL BEYOND our expectations and I expect that the same problem won't happen again. We will back without hesitation!

Owner's Response: We appreciate the feedback. As not only an owner but also someone who uses VRBO to visit other destinations, we try to anticipate some of the key concerns a renter might have (am I getting what is advertised, making the coordination of booking and checkin simple, giving guidance and tips on getting the most out of the stay, etc) and alleviate those concerns. Also, there are lots of options for renting in Maui (and even the Westin) - we feel like we are offering the best villas at the best time of year (Christmas and New Years) and are pleased that everyone who has rented from us has experienced the same special family vacation that we have have always had at the Kaanapali Westin villas. The criticism about the New Year's eve party noise is probably fair. Overall, the resort is very peaceful and quiet. Our experience is that the noise level for that particular night varies widely by year but we have always found the Westin responsive to any issues we bring up!
