What an absolutely awesome vacation!!! Generally my family and I tend to go for the all inclusive type vacation when we want to relax. So renting a villa, we were a bit skeptical about cooking our own meals and cleaning. However the way the villa was set up and our location to the pool and grill, I’m not sure we would do an all inclusive any time soon. We really enjoyed grilling while our girls swam right beside us and then we were all able to eat together poolside. Not to mention having breakfast on our lanai each morning whenever we wanted and not having to get the whole family up and ready to get to a buffet in time.
Being our very first time in Hawaii we found the location to be ideal. We were so close to great beaches to snorkel at as well as go into Lahaina for some Local Boys shaved ice! Also very close to the blow holes. The closest beach was a mere 10 minute walk through the beautiful resort. The General store on the resort had pretty much everything and anything one would need.
The villa itself that we stayed in was great. No complaints! The kitchen had stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops and was equipped with everything we needed and then some. The villa was spacious, the lanai had a beautiful view of the golf course and ocean. A huge bonus was the ensuite bathroom with the double shower heads! The pictures just don’t do justice.
Big shout out to Dave from Platinum Maui Vacations for making renting this villa so easy. Our flight didn’t land until 9:30 pm so by the time we got to Kapalua it was 11:30pm. Dave met up with us to give us the keys and any information we required. He was great!!!
All in all we were very satisfied!
