Kaanapali Vacation Rentals

Kaanapali Travel Guide
Since 1994 Owner Direct Vacation Rentals has been helping people plan their lodging accommodation needs. With ample vacation rental accommodations to choose from we are here to find your perfect fit.

Hang loose in Ka’anapali, situated on the north western shore of the island of Maui, Hawaii. Located just a scenic 10 minute drive north along Highway 30W from the old whaling town of Lahaina, the resort of Ka’anapali is a near perfect paradise. Perched on the ocean side amongst a vegetation of deep, dense, lush greenery overlooking the miles of golden sands this is a place you will never want to leave.

Seductive seascapes catch twinkling sun rays from the ocean spray as sugar cane waves in the breeze. Previously volcanic mountains flank the town while plumeria and hibiscus flowers fill the air with their sweet fragrance and eye-catching vibrancy. Ka’anapali is a world renowned beach area with four miles of tropical sands, warm waters and a calming aloha vibe.

While on holiday on the island of Maui there are plenty of sights to explore; there is world class snorkelling just minutes off the beach where you will find an array of brightly coloured schools of fish, coral and sea shells or bring a body board and catch a wave as you enjoy the beautiful Hawaiian sun. There are scuba dive tours available as well as windsurfing lessons all available by booking at the various visitor information kiosks. There are also parasail rides to view Ka’anapali from a little higher up and kayaks available for rent.

During the winter and early spring months there are fantastic whale watching tours that will often bring you only several yards away from pods of stunning whales. Enjoy a romantic sunset dinner cruise and capture the views while you taste the excellence that traditional Hawaiian dishes have to offer. Authentic Polynesian Luau’s are held several nights of the week at various resorts and are an absolute must-see, where you will hear the history of Maui, eat the incredibly delicious foods, see a hula dancing show and after the sun has set be dazzled by the fire show. Ka’anapali also offers a 36 hole championship golf course to enjoy your holiday while working on your swing. With so many sights to see and activities to explore you can do as much or as little as you like. Fresh salt water air, high humidity, radiant aqua waters, dancing palm trees, magnificent sands and frequent rainbows make Ka’anapali a true paradise.

When planning your accommodation in Maui be sure to search for your vacation rental in the last minute deals, condo rentals.

If you own a vacation rental, there is no upfront cost when you list your vacation rental accommodations (condo rentals, home rentals or chalet rentals) with Owner Direct Vacation Rentals.

    Our large, luxury one bedroom, condominium is on the ground floor and directly on the beach. It was completely remodeled and looks spectacular. Nothing beats the convenience of being on the ground floor. If you are sitting by the pool, sunning yourself on the lounge chairs, or relaxing on the beach, it is extremely convenient to go back to the condo for a cold drink, a book, or anything else you may need. You do not have to wait for elevators or climb stairs. The views are spectacular. From your lanai (patio), living room, or bedroom (all directly face the beach), you can watch humpback whales and incredibly beautiful Hawaiian sunsets. With the islands of Molokai and Lanai in the distance. The condo is a spacious 900 square feet and attractively decorated. There is beautiful granite and tile throughout. The bathroom has a spacious shower with two shower heads as well as two sinks with granite countertops.. The kitchen has granite counter tops, stainless appliances, a breakfast counter and beautiful cabinets. The kitchen is fully equipped and comes with anything you can reasonably expect to need or desire. For your convenience the condo is supplied with everything from a washer & dryer to beach towels, to a hair dryer, to picnic coolers. It is equipped with TV’s, DVD, and a stereo. The bedroom has a king sized bed and a queen size pull-out sofa in the living room. The luxury and convenience this condo offers will help make your Maui vacation truly memorable. The Mahana at Kaanapali has a quiet and relaxed environment. Many of the Maui condo accommodations are owner occupied or managed 'by owner.' Since The Mahana at Kaanapali does not cater to tour-groups and conventions, nor does it have a bar, it is quieter than the nearby Maui resort hotels. If you are seeking a livelier environment or other types of night life entertainment, you can find it by taking a short walk along the beach or a short car ride. The Mahana at Kaanapali was rated as one of the top hotels in Hawaii by Travel and Leisure Magazine while Kaanapali Beach topped CNN's list of 'America's Best Beaches.. Although we rent this ground floor condo vacation rental unit ourselves, other owners have chosen to have Aston rent their condo units for them at approximately twice our rates. You can save because we cut out the middleman. Our Mahana Rates are substantially less than Aston's 'discount' prices. Hawaii Tax ID No.: W40850992 - 01

    Please note <strong>UNIT SPECIFICS AND VIEWS</strong>: This entire resort is run by one company and managed like a hotel. All the units at this resort are managed as part of a common pool. Unit assignments are made at check in. This has some advantages and disadvantages for the guest. <br /><strong>Advantages</strong>: All the units are furnished by the managing company and are identical on the inside. 2) You get your electronic card keys, etc at the front desk. <br /><strong>Disadvantages</strong>: 1) Because all the units are part of a rental pool, most owners cannot guarantee the unit you will be assigned. 2) The only way an owner can guarantee a particular view is to meet all three of these requirements: <br />a) book the reservation at the resort more than 8 months in advance; <br />b) book for exactly 7 nights starting on a Friday, Saturday, or Sunday; <br />c) have originally purchased one of the units which has view reservation rights. <br />Although I don't posses special view reservation rights, <strong>I own a large number of units, making me a '5 Star' elite owner in the program. As a result, my guests get some priority for unit assignments.</strong> To date, everyone has been happy with their view and unit assignment. However, if your vacation hinges on a confirmed oceanfront unit, you probably want to find someone who can guarantee your view. Remember, if it's less than 8 months before check in, you will need to find an owner who reserved your exact dates before the 8 month deadline.

    Aloha. Our 3rd floor (top) unit has great ocean views and is located in the world famous Kaanapali Resort of the 17th fairway of the Kaanapali Golf Course. Our condo is stocked and decorated as a second home, cozy, warm and inviting, not a cold corporate space.

The unit has central air-conditioning and a wonderful huge lanai, full size clothes washer and dryer, we provide all linens including beach towels. You will find many beach toys such as boogie boards, floats, chairs, and misc. Snorkel equipment for your use. The kitchen is fully stocked with cookware to make just about anything. We have probably 3x the amount of dishes than a typical unit. Other important notes: Ka'anapali Royal charges a $75 parking fee per car, no matter the length of the stay...Compare that to "resort" fees at most other condos. We include cleaning with minimum 5 night stays. Shorter stays are prorated.

Kaanapali News and Events

Kaanapali Travel Guide - Owner Direct Vacation Rentals: Ka'anapali beach is located about 2 miles north of Lahaina along West Maui. Ka'anapali beach was Maui's first resort area. It includes a 3 mile stretch of golden beach with a volcanic lava outcropping in the middle called Puu Kekaa (Black Rock).

This 500 acre resort features 2 golf courses, an elegant shopping center, and an superb whaling museum. Relax on the beach, swim in the indigo ocean, admire the majestic mountains, visit historic Lahaina Town or just sit back and take in the views of the neighboring islands, Molokai and Lanai and soak up the sun. 

The biggest highlight of Ka'anapali beach is the beach itself. It begins at Hanaka'o'o (Canoe beach) and ends 3 miles up the coast at the Honokowai beach park. As of late, the northern portion of Ka'anapali beach, the undeveloped stretch of shoreline north of Black Rock (Pu'u Keka'a), has become known as Airport Beach.

Due to the climate, there is always something to do, no matter what your preferences are for activities, sports or cultural events. Check this website for the latest information on all community events on Maui ...
