The home was beautiful, charming, and a tropical paradise. The owner was extremely helpful. The home was centrally located near shopping, the beach and all of the extral carricular activities that the Maui has to offer. The vacation was one of our best ever and the home was a major part of our enjoyment.We hope to return soon.

A Great House for a Vacation My husband, two daughters, son-in-law and two grandchildren celebrated my birthday there. The house was perfect and Maui is dc incredibly beautiful. It is spacious, fully stocked and immaculate. We barbecued several evenings and ate on the patio. We all enjoyed the pool. The public beach, which was lovely, was about a five minute drive from the house and had free parking. We were able to go snorkeling there and to find areas without coral for swimming and playing in the waves. We could easily walk to Whaler's village and it was about a 10 minute drive to Lahaina and less than that to the Safeway.

Mahalo for your compliments of this home and detailed comments about the location of Pacific Paradise! A very important part of keeping a home desirable is cleaning and maintenance, thank you for commenting and noticing. Your personal opinion of the location and ease of access to beaches, Whalers Village grocery shopping and Lahaina is valuable and precisely why so many love this home! Your family and/or friends are welcome back anytime, I love sharing my home with guests that appreciate it as much as you! Angelia, Owner

Absolutely Perfect! Kaanapali Dream Home sums it up! In addition to being an absolutely beautiful home, this was the perfect place for a family to gather together to reunite! Our family (all of us now adults) just returned from the perfect week together. Being adults, we haven't been under the same roof for years, but the stay in this home allowed us the opportunity to gather, with our parents, to have a week together, enjoying each others' company. The kitchen is beautiful and allowed us all to gather and cook together. We used the BBQ every night (and a couple mornings) to cook in the beautiful Maui weather and sat each morning and evening on the Lanai, overlooking the pool, to eat and gather, while watching the kids swim until they couldn't anymore! Angelia was the perfect host, coming over to greet us and being available to assist us for whatever questions we had. Thank you, Angelia, for providing us the place for our amazing vacation! We hope to return again!

Music to my ears...Providing a wonderful, intimate setting where family/friends that may be scattered about the country and even the world can come together and reconnect feels fantastic!

Pest control needed, June 2014 Unfortunately, the house was infested with mice during my family's stay. During the week of our vacation I trapped 7 of these rodents in the family room and in the kitchen. And at the time of our departure, there was at least one more that I saw in the house. When I mentioned the problem to Angelia on our second day she was able to supply me with some pest control strips, which were quickly used up. When I called and asked for some more she was able to supply them. I suggested to her that a pest control service should be contacted, at least before her next clients arrived. She said that she had recently had a service at the house, and she didn't know what else she could do. I thought she might have called them back. Needless to say, the mouse infestation put a damper on our enjoyment of the house and our stay there. Otherwise, the listing photos and descriptions were fairly accurate. The master bedroom, the kitchen, and the family room were particularly attractive. My family of seven (5 adults and 2 children) enjoyed Kaanapali Beach and some other nearby beaches. One evening we engaged a chef suggested by an associate of Angelia's, and she was very good. We also spent an enjoyable evening at the Old Lahaina Luau. Were it not for the mice I would have given a 4 star rating. But I would not recommend the property to anyone unless they could receive valid assurance that the rodent problem had been eliminated.

Aloha Charlotte, NC, Your review and frank comments are appreciated although I hope readers will take time to Google/Facebook this subject and realize this was an island wide problem, not an issue unique only to a single home. Even Paradise has its occasional blemishes, unfortunately one was experienced during your stay, again my sincere apologies. A beautiful winter, Maui had more rain becoming lush from mountaintop to the ocean, gorgeous. Any exterminator on Maui will verify rainy years yields lots of new plants/seeds which contribute to a surge of the rodent population as well as birds, insects, geckos, deer and wild boar. Remember, Maui is a tropical island, no harsh winters! Exterminator was contacted during and after this stay to verify everything possible was done. For many years this home has been on a regular exterminator schedule inside and out including bait boxes with the most recent service approx. two weeks prior to arrival. Service now increased till this natural cycle subsides. Guest satisfaction is essential and has always been priority to me, while perfection is not always possible, responsiveness and care is! Please read some of my other 26 reviews. Mahalo and Aloha, Angelia, Owner

Wonderful House This the best Hawaiian vacation ever. The house is amazing, beautiful and very comfortable. We surprised our daughter-in-law by bringing our oldest grandson for the trip. Wonderful family moment with tears all around! The grand kids loved the pool, and as a gardener I loved the landscaping. It is also a very good location, close to the beach and shopping. It would be really hard to pick the best thing about the house, but I loved the outdoor shower. We hope to return again!

Kaanapali Dream Home We celebrated our 40th Anniversary in Maui May 2014 at Kaanapali Dream Home. We had our family of 8 with us and had the most lovely time. Angelia is so very nice. Everything was perfectly attended to. What an exquisite home. We are looking forward to staying at another one of her properties in the future. Staying at her home, really raised the standard that we look for in a property. My goodness! Angelia is an absolute gem! Thank you, Angelia, for making us feel so welcome in your beautiful home!

Thank you so much for taking the time to submit a review and for the compliments! A beautiful, memorable guest experience of their time together in paradise is my priority, whatever I can do to help achieve this is my pleasure. Angelia, Owner

Amazing Property in Paradise! The photos don't do justice to how beautiful this property is! This house and its grounds are breathtaking, and its location in Lahaina, just across from the Ka'anapali resorts, is ideal. You can easily walk 5 to 10 minutes to the Hyatt Regency or Whaler's village. Driving to downtown Lahaina only takes 5 minutes. The house is beautifully furnished, with modern decor, and spotless. Our family of 8 had such a fun, relaxing time lounging by the pool, cooking on the grill, and just hanging out--and we never felt cramped. On top of all that, the owner Angelia is so friendly and welcoming--she truly embodies the Aloha spirit. I'd highly recommend this property to anyone!

Great place ... exceeded our expectations Our family stayed here for 17 days. We had a wedding in Maui and all had a great experience. The home is very well kept with many extras not listed in the add. We would stay again and recommend to friends and family. We have very fond memories to take back to Canada. Thank you Angelia, we will remember forever and hope to return again sometime.

Holidays are so precious especially when combined with special events! Comments like "great experience, fond memories, would stay again" validates all the time and effort spent on my properties while providing a great evaluating tool.

This is a beautiful home in an ideal location! Our family (3 adult couples) celebrated our parents' 60th wedding anniversary here and enjoyed every minute of our weeklong stay! The house is even more beautiful than the photos, and every attention to detail -- luxurious linens, a well-stocked gourmet kitchen, beautiful pool and gardens -- along with the gracious welcome from the owner made certain our vacation was memorable! The home is surrounded by gardens and backs onto one of the Kaanapali golf courses so very private and peaceful. We were literally able to walk to the beach, shops and restaurants in less than10 minutes. We would enthusiastically recommend this home for any family or group of friends -- it was paradise!

Fabulous Home in a Great Location We celebrated my husband's 60th birthday in this beautifully appointed home. Our son and his family including our 17 month old granddaughter, and our daughter and her fiance joined us for our family vacation. The home is more beautiful than the online pictures show. It is beautifully furnished and has every amenity that we needed which made our stay very comfortable. . We spent a lot of time barbecuing in the yard and enjoying the pool. The patio was a great place for us to dine outdoors. The property is very well maintained with upgraded appliances. The location is about a 10 minute walk to shopping and the beach. The owner was very attentive making sure that we had everything that we needed. We all enjoyed staying in this home and it made our vacation most enjoyable. I would highly recommend this property for your next vacation.

The pictures are great and the property matches! We were invited by our daughter in law's parents to join them, their 2 daughters/partners and our mutual grandson for a week. I am pleased that all (including the 10 month old grandson) enjoyed it immensely. The home is well located within an easy 5 minute walk to the Kaanapali Beach. The home backs onto the golf course so lots of privacy and greenspace. ( our grandson loved watching the Sugar Train go by on the opposite side of the golf course. Lahaina is about a 5 minute drive away. We availed ourselves of the barbecue (nicest that I have used), the pool and the outdoor dining area. Have to be honest the wine and cocktails taste pretty good when you have digs like these. We had a little difficulty starting the barbecue the first time we used it and Angelia insisted on coming right over and getting us going. The location is very central. Hawaii is Hawaii - there is just so much to see and enjoy. Don't have any hesitation in recommending this property. 5 stars all the way.

Meeting guests is MY pleasure. Striving to insure every guest has the same experience and quality accommodations my priority! The results show and I derive a great deal of satisfaction and pride. Guests seam to appreciate that I am so quickly available. Not everything can be perfect or foreseen but responsiveness is key. "Making Your Vision Reality" is my slogan and purpose! Angelia, Owner
