About Janelle Howatt
This condominium was purchased in 1973 by three couples on an inter-island trip to Hawaii. We live in different locations on the west coast...Pacific Palisades, Calif., Mammoth Lakes, Calif., and Portland, Oregon. We all love Maui and enjoy our times there. Clarke Howatt has been on the Homeowner's Board for 8 years as Vice President of Buildings and Grounds and has headed the up-grading of the pools and grounds.

Why Janelle Howatt chose Lahaina
After visiting 4 other islands, we decided that Maui was by far the preferred island considering the good weather, the magnificent sandy beaches and in particular, the Kaanapali beach community. Located in the famous Kaanapali Resort, it is on the beach yet close to the town of Lahaina, a variety of shopping and several local golf courses.
What makes this Condo unique
Maui Kaanapali Villas offers a quiet ambience with uncrowded grounds. Guests have the option of relaxing on the beach either in the sun or under shade trees on a chaise lounge on the large lawn while watching the beautiful blue ocean. Usually the ocean is calm enough for children to play in the waves. The pools offer a variety of depths, including a 'keiki' (kiddie's) pool.

We really enjoy the Maui Kaanapali Villas.
Condo was nice but needed a good cleaning. Floors were dirty when we arrived.
We are sorry that the condo did not appear to be clean upon your arrival. This is very unusual. If you had contacted us or our rental manager, we would have immediately taken care of getting it cleaned to your liking. We have never had this kind of a complaint before as our cleaning agent has been exceptionally good and reliable.
Great location, spacious unit
We had a great time here. The property as a whole is a bit dated compared to some of the neighboring resorts, but it is clean, the room is spacious, and the location is perfect so you really can’t beat it!
Perfect for our family of four
We stayed in this condo for 9 nights in June 2019. We loved the location overlooking the pool and the ocean. We spent a lot of time out on the balcony enjoying the view, and some home made dinners. We spent a good amount of time at the beach everyday too so it was lovely to be in a unit so close to the ocean. Our daughter’s ages 22 and 18 shared the Murphy bed downstairs and we loved having our own space upstairs. The only way it could be better would be if the upstairs closet was turned into a half bath as it is a little hard getting down the stairs in the small hours of the night to use the restroom. Otherwise everything was perfect. We would definitely stay again.
Great condo, beautiful property!
We visit MKV every year and have stayed in many units. This was a very nice unit and would definitely stay here again! The location can't be beat, right next to the pool and a gorgeous view of the ocean. Quick walk to Castaways or if you're at the pool and need to grab something really quick in the unit. We appreciated the little extras tucked away in the upstairs closet, boogie boards, umbrellas, chairs and more! We had a few very hot days while we were there and it was extremely comfortable to sleep in the upstairs loft where you would think it would be warm being upstairs. The unit is very clean and has the basics that you need in the kitchen. Our only complaint was that the downstairs tv didn't get many channels at all and was very confusing, but when you're in Hawaii, you don't really need to be watching tv, right? Overall this was a great unit and would recommend it!
Maui Kaanapali Villas
We recently stayed at Maui Kaanapali Villas and had a wonderful time. The complex is kept up very nicely and the Castaway Restaurant is a very nice additive. The beach is outstanding although the weather was a little cooler than expected this year.
