We (extended family of 6 with a blind teenager) stayed here for a week in August and could not have wished for a better place. The home is spacious and well-maintained and wonderfully decorated. We ate all our meals on the lanai and spent many evenings there. There are a lot of details that usually are not in a rental house (speakers outdoors and in all the rooms, top-notch indoor and outdoor kitchens) that contributed to a very enjoyable stay. Having a small pool and deck for ourselves was much nicer than sharing at one of the big hotels. Kaanapali Beach, a beautiful sandy beach is just a 10 min walk, and Black Rock at the end of this beach had some of the best snorkeling we have ever experienced. There are also a number of less crowded beaches with nice shade trees within a 10 min drive. The location is very convenient for short trips around the island (having a car is helpful for this). The house backs onto the golf course and the Sugar Cane Train passes by on the golf course a few times each day, which delighted the train enthusiasts among us. Angelia, the owner was very helpful and welcoming. We would definitely stay here again.

Our favorite restaurants were Sansei Sushi restaurant, north in Kapalua and Hula Grill in the Whalers village shopping center at Kaanapali beach (both on the pricy side but well worth it). We also were very glad to have our Safeway card along, as it saved us at least $10 on each grocery trip.
