This condo is exactly what we were looking for! There were three couples and we had the right amount of space for everyone to enjoy time doing what they wanted as well as spend time together. I was a little bit apprehensive after reading some of the other comments, but as soon as we arrived that all disappeared. The condo is well maintained and we had no complaints with anything. The beach towels that are included in the property are fine for what we needed them for. The pool towels are not included in the rental; however, what is included is the terry-cloth chaise covers. I did not know this until the last day and I wish someone would have let me know sooner. The covers make lounging at the pool more comfortable. You are given a reserved parking space which is covered. There are a couple of beach chairs, an umbrella and a boogie board. We never used them, but they are in the laundry room. The washer and dryer are stacked and you cannot expect to fill them up as much as you would at home. Afterall, this is Hawaii and a few t-shirts, shorts and swimsuits are all that you should bring with you anyway! Also, there is a safe in the room, however, we were never able to get it to lock. The knives are not very sharp, but we got along just fine; there were only two stemmed wine glasses, but we used another type of glass; no one complained that the beds were uncomfortable, in fact everyone slept really well; dish soap, etc. are included.
We did have a problem with the dishwasher but one call and someone was over to get it taken care of for us. It did take a couple of days to get the problem completely fixed, but we made do with washing by hand.
We bought food at Costco (A MUST). We bought steaks, chicken, sausages, etc. and cooked on the grills by the pool. What a fun time! You get to meet people from all over the world and share your food and experiences with each other. This was one of the best things we did! We also rented beach cabanas for a couple of days - very relaxing.
The location of this property is amazing! You will find something for everyone in this central location. Snorkeling at Black Rock (we saw a turtle); shopping/eating at Whaler's Village, beach, etc.
Maui Beachfront Rentals personnel made this vacation one of the best we have had. They were always very helpful, considerate, and easy to work with. Everyone at the Kaanapali Alii were likewise some of the best people around and we are already planning our next visit!Read More
