I loved this place. The villa was gorgeous, stylishly appointed but not overly modern - I liked the 90s feel of the place; small-ish TV (really actually regular sized TV, just not the massive LCD screens you see in high-rise hotels nowadays), flowery bedspread etc. Really helped me feel like I was in a relaxed, beach-y like holiday.
The view from our Gold Villa was phenomenal. Can't really say much about the service as we didn't really use them aside from checking in and out, but they were fine in both cases. We knew about the resort fee ($25 per day) so that was fine and housekeeping only comes once in a couple of days which was good with us since I don't like people coming in and out. You have your own kitchen and your own washing machine, it really helps make it feel like home.
Yes the villa is in Kapalua. Kapalua beach is great for snorkelling but it is about a 15-20min drive from Lahaina. Still an easy drive. It's not like Lahaina is really a buzzing place anyway, it's like a beachside town that is quite quiet after 11. The whole of Maui is a relaxed place so you may as well enjoy it at this villa.
We also drove to Hana on one of the days which was a massive drive but has breathtaking views.
Forgot to mention this place is a golf resort. While we don't play golf and enjoyed it nonetheless, if you do like golf might be a bonus.
All in all everything was great about this place. We stayed in a really modern high-rise hotel in Honolulu on returning to Oahu and I found myself missing this place and the sea-view and the whole relaxed, homey feel so much.
