We rented a unit through VRBO and couldn't have been more pleased with our first stay at this new resort on Kaanapali Beach. We had stayed at the Sheraton in prior years but this was so much nicer. The resort was opened in 2009 so the facilities are modern and in great condition. Having your own kitchen and living room makes for a much more comfortable experience than a hotel room. Also with VRBO you can see actual pictures of the room and the view from the lanai. The resort has 10 viking grills spread on the grounds and most people grilled and then went back on their lanai's to eat. The rooms all have NanaWall type sliding glass walls so you can open up your room to your balcony.
There is a Duke's on site, you can walk about 35 minutes to Whalers Village for other restaurant choices. If you drive to Whalers Village they validate parking for 3 hours. There is a Lucky market across the street so we grilled steak and salmon purchased at the supermarket.
There are several pool areas with one reserved for quiet enjoyment. Obviously more families that you would see at a traditional hotel.
There are two towers, Hokulani and Konea. Konea is a little newer and we rented a one bedroom, Konea 206 (VRBO 303785) which had a den converted into a second bedroom. Very clean and economical if one bathroom works for you. While at the resort we viewed Konea 703 which has just come onto VRBO under number 578037. It is a spectacular two bedroom with a panoramic ocean view. We will be returning and staying in 703 for sure.
