This luxurious oceanfront condo complex sits on 8 landscaped acres in the center of Kaanapali Beach. Units are individually owned and decorated—some are considerably fancier than others. Both one- (1,500-sq.-ft.) and two-bedroom (1,900-sq.-ft.) units come with the comforts of home: spacious living areas, gourmet kitchens, washer/dryers, lanais, and two full bathrooms. Resort-like extras include bell service, daily housekeeping, and a complimentary kids’ club (summer only). Views from each unit vary dramatically; if watching the sun sink into the ocean is important to you, request a central unit on floor six or higher. Mountain View units shouldn’t be disregarded, though. They’re cooler throughout the day, and the West Maui Mountains are arrestingly beautiful—particularly on full-moon nights. Other amenities include a swimming pool, a kiddie pool, barbecues and picnic areas, and tennis courts. You can even take yoga classes on the lawn.
