For a two week stay in Maui, the Kaanapali Royal #J303 was perfect for our family of four. This unit had everything we were looking for: 1) a large well-stocked kitchen to have meals in instead of eating out all of the time, 2) two very comfortable bedrooms both with king beds, 3) higher level unit to get the best views, 4) an outdoor lanai that served as our primary spot for eating meals and playing games, 5) a short walk or trolley ride to Kaanapali beach and Whaler's Village, 6) a washer and dryer so we could do our laundry there and thus bring fewer clothes. What exceeded our expectations was how comfortable the living space is for a large gathering because a couple of times during our stay we had guests join us for dinner and games. Also unexpected was how much we enjoyed using the swimming pool, tennis courts and basketball court. The parking lot is gated and well shaded. The grounds are beautifully landscaped and maintained. We appreciated that we had for our use beach gear including snorkeling equipment, beach towels and beach chairs, and binoculars for our many excursions around the island. I don't think we could have chosen a better home away from home for our stay in Maui. Mahalo!

We had a wonderful stay at J303. I celebrated my 72nd Birthday with my Daughter, Son-in-law and my Grandkids. This is truly a home, with everything we needed there for us, including beach supplies. It’s exactly how it’s listed, but the view is so much better in person! I couldn’t get over how welcoming the ocean views are every time you walked in the front door. We were so close to everything, the location is ideal for every age. Personally I loved to just stay in and spend my time on the Lanai. I also enjoy cooking, the kitchen was very well equipped and the BBQ on the lanai was a plus. We were able to not have to go out to the crowded restaurants all the time. The living room TV is quite large, for someone my age that is a plus! The bedrooms where enjoyable with the sitting areas and TVs. Plus the beds are very comfortable. We had plenty of room for everyone to be happy with their stay. I’m already reserving my dates for next year. I will be bringing my family back; being we live far apart, I can’t wait to catch up on all the kids’ busy lives.

We have been to Maui 20 straight years and have stayed all over the west portion of the island. This was our favorite condo yet. We have two 6 year old kids and it was perfect for them. The unit is renovated, clean and it had everything you would need for a stay in Maui. The location is perfect and quiet yet close enough to the major resorts. We were there during spring break and the pool was never crowded. I highly recommend this unit.

We totally enjoyed our stay at the Kaanapali Royal J303. The condo is very clean and nicely decorated ,the bed's are very comfortable. It is well equipped with everything you will need for your stay .it is located in a good area just a 5 min walk from the beach and shopping and restaurants and a 10 min drive from even more shopping and restaurants in Lahaina.the condo complex was quiet and had a great pool and hot tub ,the grounds were very well kept .we would definitely stay there again .
