Kapalua is unique in being away from the tourist crowd, embedded in beutiful views and gardens. At the same time it is close to food and other shops in Napili and Lahaina.
The condominium is well maintained with attentive in location staff.
The design of the condo = townhouse type, provides privacy in and out of the villa. The proximity of four beaches and two pools and the mountain view provides a special vacation experience.
Our townhouse condo with exceptional views of the ocean. Listen to the waves, see the whales in season and walk to three exceptional beaches. Two pools within steps. See sunrise and sunset from our bedroom. Fully equipped kitchen. Tennis, golf, spa, restaurants nearby.
Twelve years of renting ( until recently we used another rental agency) with super reviews (available on demand)
Having a Townhouse arrangement where the LOWER level (living room with a sleep couch, full bathroom, kitchen, Lanai and a TV) and an UPPER level ( bedroom, full bathroom, lanai, and a TV) has the advantage where guests can, if they want to, have a full privacy from each other :-)
I would often want to watch a game on TV while my wife would choose to quietly read a book...
Our guests have access to three beaches, two pools, tennis, golf, spa, restaurants, food and a general store( all within walking distance)
There is also a free shuttle service to all those places.
A full service supermarket, pharmacy and more restaurants are in Napili, a five minute drive.
A nature trail on the rocky border of the pacific with amazing dramatic views is within minutes walk from our unit.
We talk to our guests before they commit to rent, during the time they are in our condo and after they leave as we seek their feedback. We send them a detailed welcome letter that makes their stay very easy and comfortable
NOTE: we have two pools nearby...Both pools have grills.
The lower pool has also an exchange library
Kapalua is the most western resort in Maui, it's pristine homes and vegetation is maintained by a seasoned management team that responds quickly to the needs of the owners and renters. It is truly away from the crowds and gives you the feeling of being " away from all" yet within five minutes drive one can access a shopping center, and within 20 minutes drive you are in Lahaina

My husband and I stayed at Pat & Gil's condo for two weeks. This is a roomy condo with fantastic views and a great location. Pat and Gil are very conscientious owners that sincerely care about the quality of their guest's visits. We had a few questions while we were there and they were very responsive. We also had a little trouble with the lock on the door when we first got there (our fault) and called their local contact Don. Don came right over and helped us out. Although we were there before whale season, we did see a whale from the lanai on the first day of our stay. The views from both lanais are just fantastic! We had stayed at the ridge before, but in a two bedroom unit when we traveled with another couple. We knew from that visit that we loved the location. Quiet, fantastic views, roomy condos, nice walks right in the immediate area
Most guests rent cars when they arrive in Maui. However a resort free shuttle service is available to transfer guests to beaches, restaurants, the general store and sports facilities. A taxi service is available as well.

Fine time, lovely experience. well-appointed and comfortable condo, gracious hosts, great location in quiet kapalua, walk to beach. Terrific price. Great views. My favorite single thing was the exquisite breeze (sometimes more of a gale) in the unit--previous week, stayed in wailea and had to use AC a lot, not at all in kapalua. Could hear ocean waves all the time in the condo--loved that sound. Overall, 1st rate experience, recommend without hesitation-- i plan to repeat my visit.

We loved it
We stayed at Pat and Gil's condo for our total of eight days in Maui. Kapalua is the most pristine place you could stay in the area. Grounds are manicured if anything were to fall there is someone there to pick it up. The condo is within easy walking distance of several beaches, excellent restaurants, the Ritz Carlton and it's golf course and also very close to the grocery store just in case you forgot to get something at Costco. In the condo we found everything we needed to make our stay more than home away from home. Laying in bed and listening to the ocean was the best sound we could wake up to. And there were also birds singing out the window. Such a nice atmosphere. The views from the lanai and the balcony were to die for. Most of our free time was spent walking. We took Pat and Gil's advice in the written instructions to go for happy hour when prices were somewhat more reasonable than going for a full dinner later. We tried most of the restaurants that were suggested in the written instructions left for us. We loved the flowers and the candy. That was a surprise. The only thing that we could think to suggest would be to put the code for access to Internet closer to the TV. We found it at the modem but the modem is not in plain sight. The views from the lanai and the balcony were to die for. We are already talking about returning sometime next year.

Kapalua is a special place! Pat & Gil's apartment has been a highlight and has made our annual trip even that more special!
The nearby pools and beaches are obviously free for guests. The Golf and Tennis activities have additional fees with some discount for guests. Theere is a free shuttle that takes you to beaches and shops.
We keep open phone and internet communications with our guests....we are off the island (in New York) so they have full privacy, yet our in property Manager and the Ridge Staff are there for guests.

Just upgraded our TV= 200 channels and doubled the internet speed!
Also note: Hawaii requires an an added "hotel tax" of 13.4% on any reservation!
In order to limit the cost we suggest that you send us the tax by check so to avoid ADDITIONAL service fee by airbnb. Once you agreed to rent we can review this directly.
There is a strict no smoking rule anywhere in the resort.
Maintaining civility and quiet behavior is expected of all.
I am retired banker and currently teaching economics at NYU, I have bought lived and had guests in this property for over 12 years through another rental company with excellent occupancy and superb guest reviews that I can share with any interested future guest.
My association with Kapalua started over 25 years ago ( as a renter) and my family came to this paradise every summer.
The beauty, superb maintenance, the feeling of "away from the crazy world" and amenities of this community are so good that I believe that the experience and value of vacationing at Kapalua is an excellent choice!
