Owner Supplied Testimonials

Truly first class stay overlooking the beach
My wife and I stayed for a week in August and truly loved it. This unit has much more space than we needed for only two of us, but we chose it for the awesome location and first class touches. And it lived up to our expectations 100%. The views are spectacular. You are in the upper unit (2nd & 3rd floors) perched on a rise above a large sandy beach framed by lava cliffs on both ends. The floor to ceiling panoramic windows really take advantage of this. We also found the beds, towels, linens, etc. to all be really nice quality. Not the "so what if it gets beat up" stuff some people put in rental units.

The owner was great to work with and the local management company was there if you needed them but unobtrusive otherwise. We found the glass carafe on the coffee pot was missing when we arrived and within an hour it was replaced. Amazing!

The whole Kapalua area is well done, and this unit fits that and then some. We chose this over staying at the Ritz Carlton and I'd make the same choice again. Much more serene!

Couldn't Be More Perfect - Inside and Out
This was our second time to Kapalua Bay Villas and our first time staying in the penthouse. It will certainly not be our last. We spent a full week there over Christmas - two grandparents, two parents, and one teenager. There was plenty of space for all of us and we never felt crowded.

From the initial planning stages seven months in advance to the grocery requests the week prior to our arrival, the owners were a pleasure to work with: responsive, helpful, gracious, and detailed. By the end of our experience, I felt like we had made new friends.

The Villa itself is everything the pictures depict and more. The location is right on the beach, steps away from the Kapalua trail and Oneola beach. The villa was spotlessly clean, warm, welcoming, and comfortably outfitted with high-end furnishings and accessories. It immediately felt like home. The views from the entire villa, both upstairs and downstairs, were breathtaking. We heard the ocean surf from the upstairs bedroom every night as we fell asleep and watched the beautiful sunrises every morning. The beds were better than many I've slept on in high-end hotels around the world and all three bathrooms were beautifully appointed. The chef's kitchen was roomy enough for four of us at any one time and had every possible appliance, kitchen utensil, and gadget you could want. Even the pull-out sleeper sofa was comfortable - now that's unusual!

The owners have thought of everything. From complementary wifi, to insulated tote bags to pack drinks and snacks for the beach, to four Tommy Bahama beach chairs for lounging in the sand, to activity and restaurant recommendations, to top notch toiletries in every bathroom to plenty of cleaners in the kitchen and the laundry room - you will want for nothing during your stay. The owner even called us on the morning after our arrival to ensure everything was perfect. What customer service! They clearly want their guests to have an amazing experience. And we DID!

I highly recommend Kapalua as a vacation destination and the Penthouse at Bay Villas as your home away from home. Your entire experience - from planning to arrival to departure - will be flawless. Our family will definitely be returning.

Beyond Expectations! The Complete Vacation Package!
This unit has breathtaking panoramic views of the coastline, Pacific Ocean, and Moloka'i Island, with whale watching and beautiful rainbows. There was even a double rainbow that appeared right before our eyes that was picture perfect -- something you only see in fairy tale books.
Kapalua Bay Villas is off the beaten track, so it provides tranquil relaxation and that total get away from it all feeling. But yet, it is very close to the many activities that Maui has to offer.

Oneloa Bay is an uncrowded beach right outside the doorstep and was a hot spot for surfing during our stay in late December/early January.

Kapalua Bay is a short walk (5-10 minutes) from the Villa, and the snorkeling is amazing. Our 18-year old son went snorkeling and ended up swimming with three sea turtles, plus he saw some amazing coral and fish.

Lahaina is about a 15-minute drive where you can find many adventurous activities -- Old Luhaina Luau, shopping in the Cannery Mall and along the Lahaina wharf, and fabulous fishing charters (Start Me Up, Slip #12 -- we recommend Captain Steve Carroll). Our 15-year old son caught a 57 inch, 31 pound Mahi Mahi, and we also caught 12 tuna that they filleted for us and we were able to cook it for dinner in the well appointed kitchen with modern appliances. We did our grocery shopping at the Safeway in the Lahaina Cannery Mall, but as Patty recommended, make sure you get yourself the Safeway card. We saved a couple hundred dollars in groceries by using it!

Kaanapali Beach is only about a 10 minute drive. This beach seemed to attract more teenagers and was great for people watching. If you like to shop, right next to Kaanapali Beach is Whalers Village, which contains many fun and unique boutiques.

If you just aren't sure what to explore, Kapalua Bay Villas also has a visitor center where there are people more than happy to help you find activities and provide recommendations based upon your interests. We found all of the staff at Kapalua Bay to resourceful and friendly.

The owners, Patty and Rick, were extremely responsive! Their photos don't even begin to capture the beauty of this unit! Everything couldn't have been more perfect upon our arrival -- and all the small extra details like flower-shaped tissues and seashell folded towels just added that extra special touch. The owners also provided more than enough beach towels and four beach chairs and a beach bag -- so you are ready to hit the beach!

This is a beautiful, well-maintained condo right on the ocean. There's a gorgeous private beach, which offers wonderful snorkeling opportunities. The nearby cliff has a trail right along the ocean and it was great to have access to this unbelievable landscape right outside our door. Patty and Rick are so easy to work with and they went out of their way to make sure our stay was comfortable. I would highly recommend staying here!

Fantastic ocean condo! 
We stayed at this ocean-front condo in April 2015. Upon arrival, the first thing you recognize is the most amazing views of the ocean. The unit is very well designed to maximize that attribute and provide for comfortable, first-rate accomodations including dual master suites, family room, dining room and kitchen. I agree with the other reviewer in that the actual condition of the condo is consistent with the pictures. Other valuable amenities include three pools with covered areas, BBQ grills ready for your use and responsive property management if you need anything (we needed more garbage bags and they were delivered quickly).

Great place - five stars.

Gorgeous ocean front condo. Incomparable views!!!
We have stayed on Maui many times before this trip, always on the other side of the island. We saw the pics of this condo and decided to try it. The views are uncomparable, the condo is top-notch, and we had an incredible experience from start to finish. Patty was wonderful to work with. The upstairs master has the most beautiful panoramic view of the ocean. To wake up and see that was just incredible. Thank you Patty!! Do not hesitate to rent this condo, you will not be disappointed. It is all it looks like from the pictures and more.

Absolute paradise!!! 
We cannot recommend this villa more highly. Gorgeous location with breathtaking views from every window. The location is super convenient- great restaurants accessible via free shuttle service- golf nearby and an incredible spa at the Ritz Carlton - 5 minutes away. The villa is in excellent condition with two full master suites with spacious double sink bathrooms. Washer and dryer, big screen TV and all the comforts of home. There is a private beach right below the villa or the beautiful Kapalua beach for snorkeling a few minutes away.( we enjoyed a twenty minutes swim with the friendliest sea turtle) perfect for two couple or a family. Love, love, loved it!!! Can't wait to visit again:)
