The Villas provide more space for you to spread out. In Sept. it should be quieter i.e. kids back in school! The beach is wonderful for snorkeling.

We own there and love it so if you have any other questions let me know.

If the lanai is important get a 1 bedroom....studios in the south units only offer a "step-out" lanai.

Thank you. So is it the North building that I want?

If those are your only choices, I definitely would go with the VILLAS.

They are not my only chioics- I've tried to narrow my choices. I typically stay at the Whaler; however, it is under construction at teh moment. Do you have other favorites on Kaanapali?

As a renter you may "request" but there are no guarantees. Also keep in mind that if you are SPG your membership has no weight in regards to upgrades. It's a time-share property and owners get first draw.

Having said all that, in Sept., you have a very good chance of securing a lovely Villa because it's a slower time.

We have stayed at the Sheraton Maui several times and think it's great. The Hyatt would be my second choice on that strip of Ka'anapali.

North of Black Rock, near the Villas you should also check out Honua Kai and Maui Kaanapali Villas and maybe even the Mahana.

If I was booking this I would stay clear of both the Sheraton and Weston properties. They are costly when you add the many fees they will add to the bill (parking, assorted taxes, pool fees, etc). Look for a condo unit that you can find on VBRO.com.
