Owner Supplied Testimonials
I took my extended family and the holiday was wonderful. the accomodation was pricey but very nice. The staff were most helpful.
Katrina was the person who checked us in and was our helper and adviser throughout our stay. She was always helpful and friendly. Also the people who arranged our reservations and the billing staff were very kind and helpful at every step. The rental was top-notch.
We took a chance and left the Kaanapali location to head north to Kapalua. Boy - we should have made the move many years before. This villa is absolutely beautiful and the management company leaves nothing for the vacationer to worry about. As a family with children, it is always difficult to meet everyone's needs. This villa and location did just that ... We look forward to our future vacations at the Ritz Villas :-)
Very nice home. Everything as advertised. No surprises. Great experience.
