Although our Maui condo rentals are luxurious and complete with a full kitchen and all you need to prepare your own meals, we know one of the most anticipated aspects of going on vacation is eating out and trying new dishes. It’s a taste adventure! Because we’re located on Ka’anapali Beach we thought we’d clue you in to some of the best dining opportunities when vacationing in West Maui.

Leilani’s On the Beach is located at Whalers Village on Ka’anapali Beach and offers the freshest food you could ask for. Locally sourced produce and fresh fish caught daily make eating at Leilani’s a real treat. From fresh fish tacos to Korean fried chicken, burgers, salads, fisherman’s chowder, coconut shrimp, calamari strips and more, you can taste the passion for quality.

Roy’s Ka’anapali is where you’ll find an upscale atmosphere and Asian inspired menu options too numerous to mention them all. With a view overlooking the 18th hole of the Ka’anapali Golf Course, you can enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner. From appetizers including Crispy Hawaii Kai Style Crab Cakes, hot and sour soup, Crispy Ginger Chicken Potstickers and more to sea or land based dinner entrees such as Hibachi Grilled Ora King Salmon, Seafood Collection, Filet Mignon, Huli Huli Half Chicken and Hawaiian Sea Salt Ribeye to name a few, the hardest decision you’ll make is which one of the delectable choices you want! Pricey, but definitely worth it.

Teppanyaki 2 Go by 808 Afternoons is where you will find some of the best food you’ve ever eaten according to Yelp reviews, along with fairly low prices. From fish and shrimp to steak, chicken, vegetable plates and scallops, you won’t be disappointed in this restaurant – and it’s just five or 10 minutes away from your vacation rental. Well worth traveling a few miles!

You’ll certainly want to try one (or maybe even all 3) of these spectacular restaurants while you’re vacationing – after all, a break from cooking is sometimes a vacation in itself. The great thing about our Maui condo rentals is that in addition to luxurious, comfortable surroundings and amazing views, you’ll also have a well appointed kitchen should you decide to dine in. Book yours today, they go fast!

Tying The Knot On Maui, The Dream Of Many Couples

The island of Maui isn’t only a hot vacation destination, it’s also a popular destination for couples who are ready to begin their lives together. If you’re planning on tying the knot on Maui, be sure to book a Maui condo rental well ahead of time. It’s important to organize all of the details in advance so that once you arrive, all you have to focus on is your wedding and all of the fun/pleasure that you, your spouse, and family and friends enjoy afterward.

Most couples who come to Maui to tie the knot enjoy beach weddings; after all, what’s more romantic than a gorgeous morning, afternoon or sunset on the beach surrounded by beautiful scenery, the sounds of the waves, and the wind blowing through your hair? While you can have a “formal” wedding you certainly don’t have to. Nothing’s more relaxing than joining together as one with the sand between your toes while the mist from the ocean cools and refreshes. However you have it pictured, you can enjoy your ideal wedding on the beach – and it’s a lot more fun for guests than a traditional church wedding on the mainland!

The great thing about Maui weddings is that many couples invite their guests to stay for a day or two so everyone can enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime experience. From the beaches and local cuisine to hiking, exploring nature and learning about the culture there’s simply no other place that’s so relaxing and laid back. Drive the road to Hana, surf, snorkel, take a helicopter tour or enjoy a sunset cruise, go horseback riding, or shop and take in all of the local events and entertainment. What you do is totally up to you and your party, however you’ll never experience a dull moment.

What could possibly be more romantic than starting your new life together on a beautiful island? Be sure your down time is just as wonderful as all of the other experiences you’ll enjoy by securing one of our luxurious Maui condo rentals.

Maui Condo Rentals – Enjoy The Beaches Of Maui With These Tips

The beautiful beaches are one of the reasons so many people choose to vacation in Maui. Our Maui condo rentals are located right on the beach, so that’s one way to start your vacation off on the right foot! Other than that, we have a little information to help you stay safe, abide by the laws and enjoy the beach scene even more.

Be sure to look for signs that say “public beach access,” as there are no private beaches on the island. If you see a spanse of water and no sign, it’s other people’s private property you have to cross to get there – that means it’s not accessible to you! Abide by the rules.

If you smoke, don’t do it on the beach! It could cost you $500, and all beaches/beach parks are smoke-free areas today. We want to keep our beaches pristine so everyone can enjoy!

Be cautious of the ocean. Conditions can change in an instant, and if locals are staying away from the water or warning signs are posted, you should stay away from the water as well. The ocean conditions in West and South Maui tend to be calmer, but always be careful. You’ll also want to keep your eyes toward the ocean, as you could get knocked down (and even worse) should you be struck by an unexpected and powerful wave.

All of this said, you may want to consider one of the many beaches on Maui that have lifeguards on duty from about 8 a.m. to 4:30 in the evenings. If you’re staying in West Maui this includes the Hanaka’o’o or “Canoe” Beach in Kaanapali and the D.T. Fleming Beach in Kapalua.

When you go into the ocean to snorkel, swim or partake in any water activity, always have someone with you so you can look out for each other. Safety in numbers!

Take these things with you, but leave nothing. Our beaches are for everyone to enjoy, so no leaving behind trash, cups, food wrappers, cans, bottles, etc. What should you take along? A good sunscreen, hat and sunglasses, beach chairs or mats, beach shoes, towels, water to drink and a trash bag so you can take any trash that accumulates with you.

We want you to enjoy the gorgeous surf and sand of our many beaches, but we also want you to be safe. Have a great time creating memories, and be sure to secure one of our beautiful Maui condo rentals well ahead of time so you won’t be disappointed.
