“Fantastic, heavenly time at Valley Isle Resort 1105”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2013

We stayed at the Valley Isle Resort on Kahana Beach from Jan.22-Feb. 1, 2013. We booked unit 1105 thru VRBO. It is a one bedroom condo which had great amount of room for 2 of us, as oppose to staying in a small hotel room at resort. Owners are Jeff and Trisha. The condo is gorgeous as pictured on VRBO.
The condo is beachfront with breathtaking views with its floor to ceiling windows and lanai off living room area of islands Molokai and Lanai! We were there during humpback whale season. We saw from the balcony humpback whales daily, along with sea turtles below, people on kayaks, surfing or paddle boards. We ate breakfast daily on the lanai soaking in the gorgeous views! Almost every night we were there for sunset and sometimes ordered take-out dining on the lanai (balcony) watching the spectacular views. It was very romantic. We were lulled to sleep by the sounds of the waves crashing on the beach.
The condo is in a great location. It’s in Kahana which is right above Ka’anapali and Lahaina and right below Napilii and Kapulua, great beach and tourist areas. The beach right in front of condo has reef, water pretty calm to snorkel, paddle board and kayak. Little bit out is great surfing.
The people at the condo complex are very friendly and nice. The complex has a pool and gas bbq grills. Free on site parking.
The unit is extremely well kept, with lovely remodeled kitchen with stainless steel appliances and lovely tiled shower. It is decorated with tasteful Hawaiian décor. They gave great attention to detail to make our stay absolutely wonderful. The kitchen had good array of cookware. There were beach chairs, umbrella, and other beach items for use during our stay. Free hi speed internet. The owners had binoculars in entertainment center in living room which we used for whale and spinner dolphin watching. They have 2 TVs. 1 in living room and 1 in bedroom. Both have DVD players and living room also has video player and CD player. They have an assortment of videos, DVDs, CDs and books to enjoy while staying there. Why, the owners even provided CDs of Hawaiian music to enjoy!!!
Jeff was very accommodating to us before and during our stay. He gave great advice and service. We highly recommend this great value condo if staying in Maui.

We plan on going back again, and will certainly rent from these owners again.

Recommended restaurants:
China Boat which is right down the road, you can walk to it.
Seahouse in Napilii, lovely beach views, great service, ambience, live entertainment and food.
Tiki Terrace Restaurant, outdoor dining with great service, Hawaiian ambience, live entertainment of bands and hula dancers, plus dancing for guest, older crowd

Room Tip: Unit 1105 is beautiful with breathtaking views!

While Valley Isle is not a 5 star resort, it is RIGHT ON THE OCEAN. It is clean and you can't beat the prices for a stay in Maui. We've stayed in several of the units when adding to our scheduled timeshare time in Maui. The Maui bus stops right in front and for $1 per person you can go anywhere. We never rent a car. These units have complete kitchens if you want to help the budget. Look on their website. Prices differ with each unit. Some give discounts for a full week or more. Have fun.

Room Tip: Look at the website.

Another wonderful stay at Valley Isle #804. Yes, there was a fire that destroyed the health club next door, but the condo's themselves are unaffected. There are repairs in the works for the lobby area, but other than that, everything is wonderful! The turtles visit every day, and the sunsets from the lanai are spectacular. The condo is super clean, and has everything you need for your stay including coolers and beach chairs. The kitchen is stocked with more than expected. Very peaceful, no street noise. We enjoyed take-out from the China Boat just down the road, and the Sands of Kahana next door has breakfast and dinner specials. Went to Roy's for a special anniversary dinner, was wonderful! The craft show in Lahaina on Sunday was the best, lots of local vendors. New poolside furniture was delivered during our visit, very comfortable! We already have our reservations for next year, thanks Janet!

Unit 109 is an ocean front, ground level condo only steps from the beach. My husband and I love that we can walk directly out to the beach from our lanai so much that this was our 5th consecutive year of staying in Unit 109. The views of the ocean, Molokai, & Lanai are spectacular from both inside the unit and the lanai. The snorkeling was great right outside the unit and we saw turtles every day the in the shallow surf while sitting on the beach. The condo came equipped with a washer/dryer which allowed us to pack lightly (which we love!). There is convenient shopping and several great restaurants in walking distance. We highly recommend staying in this unit!!

We stayed for 13 days in #1209 of Valley Isle Resort in Kahana and had an amazing time. Henry and Jenny have thought of every thing for their guests! We loved the location, the amenities and especially the private beach! We watched whales and turtles every day from the lanai and really appreciated the constant breeze that blows right through the place!!! All in all we would highly recommend this place!! We will return for sure!!!!!

Poor old Valley Isle Resort - adjacent property had a terrible fire last summer which affected the property and lobby of the Resort, but not the condos. We have stayed here many times, and have always found beautifully furnished condos, very reasonable rates, and friendly staff. And all this is on a beautiful sandy beach that is never crowded! We just returned today from a week in Unit 1004 and this very comfortable, one-bedroom unit afforded us great views of whales, turtles, and so many rainbows I lost count! And every unit at the Valley Isle is ocean-front. So, don't write off the old girl because of the inconvenience of construction and restoration- the condos were not damaged in the fire, and the beautiful lanais and sweet beach are the best!

Room Tip: You rent from the condo owner, sobe sure to go to the web site and look for the one that suits you b...

This unit is spotless and in the very best location at Valley Isle ... out on the corner, closest to the ocean, with panoramic ocean views from everywhere in the condo ..... extremely clean and completed updated with super comfy bed,where you wake up looking at the ocean! Condo is so well equipped, with snorkle gear, games, beach towels .... perfect!! This was our 14th trip to Hawaii (12 to Maui) and this condo was one of our very favorites .... Bathrooms are a little on the small side, but everything else in the condo makes up for this small negative. Best of all, the owners, Dennis and Karen Garlock, are fantastic people to deal with. We couldn't recommend this condo more ... The have two others at Valley Isle, but this is the only one on the corner with this bedroom view ..... Try for this one if you can!!

Room Tip: Pick a room ending in "10" for the fantastic corner/ocean location.
