Returning to Ka'anapali on Island of Maui After 12 Years

By
Real Estate Agent with Lyon Real Estate BRE #00697006

When people ask me how many times I've been to Hawaii, it seems like an odd question because I don't really know. My first trip was 1978. But I do recall the first trip I made to Maui with my husband. At least I thought I did. I seem to remember making the trip with him from Minneapolis but he assured me no, we definitely flew from Sacramento one winter.

A quick check of my computer for photos showed yes, indeed, it was 2004. The hotel we stayed at had a bar on the beach, and we drank Mai Tais while wiggling our toes in the sand, watching the sun go down in a burning ball of blaze. It was a magical 3 days.

The last time I was in Maui was in 2014, and I took a limo to The Fairmont in Waimea with my team member Barbara Dow. We enjoyed a suite on the top floor, oceanfront; we shopped, dined and sunned.

Well, this trip is nothing like either of those. You can read more about it in my personal blog today at this link: In Search of a New Experience on the island of Maui.

Michael Jacobs Well, my saving grace after changing rooms was the bellman remembered to remove the bottle of champagne from the 'frig and take it with us to the new room. I decided, WTH, I can always unpack some other day.

I haven't been back to Ka'anapali in years.  I need to fix that one of these days! That's a really nice view, Elizabeth!

No wonder I hesitated to "go back" to Kaanapali, because my incredible memories go back to the 70s.  Those were the days! My recent trips have been to Wailea and Kihei but only because its closer to Makena Beach, my absolute favorite on Maui. You should go on a sunrise tour to Haleakala. Memorable.

Hella Mitschke Rothwell Well, nothing has changed at THIS hotel since the 1970s. The service is impeccable, though, they care about their guests or at least they pretend to better than they do at Four Seasons, LOL.

Haleakala been there done that, and I'm never doing the Road to Hana again. However, if Weird Al Yankovic invited me over to the East side of Maui, I might go.
