First let me say that as a travel writer I stay in a lot of properties. I am even an owner at the nearby luxury Westin Ocean Resort Villas. This time I needed a 2BD, 2BA accommodation for 12 nights, so I searched high and low in the Ka'anapali area. Maui Eldorado B206 was the perfect choice. Why?
1. Location. The Maui Eldorado condos are within an easy walk of the north beach, Black Rock, Whalers Village, all the south beach resorts and restaurants, with even a strip mall across the street. The private cabana on the beach is a great amenity. Two of our guests were stuck there when it started to rain one day, and a quick call brought a golf cart to take them back to the condo.
2. Upgraded property. If you read negative reviews about Maui Eldorado it could be because it is more than 45 years old, and some units show it. This one, managed by Maui Westside, is highly upgraded, with tasteful island furnishings. At 1400 square feet it is also spacious.
3. Location of unit. This is a bright corner unit, with wrap-around windows and lanai that make the total square footage about 1700. We lived on lanai, with its quiet garden view. It was almost like a private home versus a condo complex.
4. Amenities. Kitchen was well-equipped. Washer and dryer were handy. Lots of privacy, as the two bedrooms and baths were quite separated from each other. 3 TVs. We had some issues with the cable service on the main TV a couple of times, but always resolved with a phone call to the cable company (they promptly answer, even minutes before the Super Bowl!).
The whole complex is managed by Outrigger, which makes check-in/out easy, parking, etc. All-in-all, I would highly recommend this condo.
My Mom and I rented this condo out for a Mom/Daughter vacation. It was perfect! The Condo is immaculate and tastefully decorated. Loved the open floor plan and the ability to open both sets of the living room lanai sliding doors for a wonderful cross breeze. This unit is the size of my own home back on the Mainland, so it was wonderful to have so much space. The kitchen has all updated appliances which made cooking fun and easy! Loved being able to look out over the whole living area while making meals! The lanai is very large and loved that it wrapped around. The Master and Second bedroom were very spacious and it was nice for each having an ensuite bath to ourselves. Loved that the unit had indoor laundry as well. The condo is situated were you don't really have anyone looking back at you so it felt very private plus the fact that we sat up higher than the other units. Loved being on the second floor as well. The lanai was large and had outdoor dining for up to 6 plus enough room for lounge chairs. Loved that it had it's own private Cabana for Eldorado guests and that it was just a short walk to Kaanapali Beach (Black Rock), Whaler's Village, Shopping and restaurants. They also had a golf cart shuttle that made it easy for Mom to transport back and forth easily. It was great being that close to all the fun things in Kaanapali yet far enough away to enjoy the peacefulness! We fell in love with this Condo and will definitely be back with the whole family next time! Thank you for a wonderful time!!
