2 bedroom gold golf villa - great for family
The room was a 2-bedroom fairway view gold villa. We had an amazing view albeit it was not an oceanfront property. Our room had a back porch with a gorgeous view however. The villa contained 2 bedrooms, 2 baths (both with a bathtub), a private entrance, a king bed, a queen sofa bed, and 2 twin beds. There was plenty of closet space, the main closet contained a vacuum, games, and books for our use. Each room had a tv with directv and free Wi-Fi. We had our own parking space and custom keypad entry so you don’t have to worry about finding a card key. The kitchen had a dishwasher, oven, full fridge, microwave, and any amenities you would need to cook. There is a full dining table with 4 chairs and 2 barstools at the counter. Also there was a table and 4 chairs plus 2 lounge chairs on the back porch. We were relatively close to one of the 5 pools on the kapalua bay property that had 2 bbqs for use though we did not use these during our stay. They offered a shuttle service to kapalua area restaurants and beaches but we did not use this service either. We were located right on kapalua golf course which is a 10 min walk to kapalua bay beach, a local beach with good snorkeling but only basic services like a public restroom and no lifeguard on duty. Nearby is also a great shopping center in Napili which includes a snorkel rental place and a grocery store with gluten free food options (for you celiacs). Lahaina is only 15 min drive away and we felt this was a decent distance to the activities we attended such as the royal Lahaina luau and visiting black rock beach. Keep in mind this location is also 45 min drive from Kahului airport, but it’s a beautiful drive along the outside of the island overlooking the ocean and you don’t notice the length. By the way, I read multiple reviews about the cockroaches so I was on the look out. I made sure to keep all food closed using ziplocks or within the fridge and took the trash out every night. I only saw 2 centipedes that were near door entrances and they were dead when we found them. Remember this is a tropical environment so there is bound to be some bugs but honestly this was never an issue for us. All in all, this was the perfect location for our family of 5.
Beware of Mold
The gold water front condos have a million dollar view, but our condo was covered in mold. Before we booked through AAA, I was really hesitant because of the inconsistent reviews. Our agent promised us that if we booked a gold ocean front villa, it would be fine. Well, it wasn’t and it caused us two days of chaos in Maui. We arrived on Sunday night, dropped our bags off, and we immediately left for supper. When we returned, my husband went to grab groceries for the week, and I stayed behind to take care of the children. As I inspected the condo, there was mold and mildew everywhere.....not good for a family with an asthmatic and mold allergies. It was 6:30 PM, and we called the front desk and asked for a change in condos. They told us there were none available and they would have to call a manager. The response was they would have someone clean it in the morning. This was not acceptable as it needed all new blinds because they were covered in mold. AAA told us we could move to a new place at our expense (paid for in advance), but they couldn’t guarantee any refund. At 4 PM on Monday, they had a Gold Ocean Ridge View condo available. We moved into it but it smelled heavily like bleach to clean mold. The second unit was better. However, when in a tropical climate, you need more than wall A/C units and none of the bathrooms had exhaust fans. The first condo did have central air, but it did not work well and you couldn’t turn it below 70. Hence, all the mold because it was so humid in it and the main cross breeze patio door was broken, so you couldn’t even open it. We received the difference in the condo prices back and they waived the resort fee. After two days, they told us they would refund the balance if we wanted to move to a new resort, but just try and find ocean front condos in July in Maui! Ha, it is impossible!
Hidden costs, beware. Good location
We stayed for a week. The villas are located on beautiful coast. The gardens are well kept. Beaches are excellent but tend to be crowded. Service is lacking, not polite, not very helpful. Our bed was terrible, mattress was broken with no support. This is expensive place to rent with all the extra tagged on. There is an expensive daily resort fee, and there is a hefty mandatory cleaning charge. This is considering there is no room service at all unless you pay extra( again a lot)
Great location, beautiful biews
We were really happy w our one bedroom, ocean view condo. Traveled w our two teenage sons who slept on the pullout couch. It was great to have room to spread out. We were in an ocean view on Ridge and were steps from several beaches, including Kapalua Beach where we swam w dozens of sea turtles over a one week stay. The free shuttle and washer/dryer in the condo were welcome amenities. Staff and service were great. We will be back!
Vacation in paradise
This was our 2nd stay at The Kapalua Villas over the last 2 years.The manager Ramill is top notch. He is very assertive and knowledgable about the area and he is very hands on. Our check in was very quick and we felt very welcomed after our long day of traveling. We booked through Costco travel and our room was in the P building it was a 2 bed gold golf view villa. It was beautiful it had everything we needed to cook some meals during our stay. The concierge is in the check in area with a wall that has a selection of activities. While we were there it was Jen and Shannon and both ladies were so helpful with all our needs.The property is beautiful!! views are endless its just so relaxing and you feel like you are some where very special. Thank you Ramill for a wonderful stay!!
