106 Kaanapali Shores Pl, Honokowai
Though this condo building is old (1969) and the exterior relatively unimpressive, this one’s a winner and the best priced in this area. The place is impossibly close to the ocean—around 25 feet!—so rooms look almost straight down into the water. Their sandy beach is narrow but gets wider next door. The pool obviously wouldn’t fit on the ocean side, so it’s tucked away on the mountain side and has no view, but there’s a computer for you to use, free Wi-Fi and a kitchen at the pool to cook your meals. There’s also a grocery store across the street.
Units vary a lot, but we didn’t see any we wouldn’t want to stay in. They have DVD players and free DVDs (newer releases) for loan in the office. Some of the studio units have pull-down wall beds—get out of bed, pop it up, and you have the whole room. Corner units offer particularly tasty views. If you’re staying on the Ka‘anapali Beach Club side of the building, you may hear their Friday poolside events.
All in all, it’s an excellent deal. Studios, which they call Jr. Suites (500–550 sq. ft.), are $249–$319, 1/1s (750–800 sq. ft.) are $309–$419, 2/2s (1,200 sq. ft.) are $499–$599. 2- or 5-night minimum.
