Maui Vacation- Aston Kaanapali Shores Resort

Maui Vacation- Aston Kaanapali Shores Resort


The island of Maui isn’t much of a secret – tens of thousands of happy visitors already know what this Hawaiian paradise is all about. The Aston Kaanapali Shores Resort located along the beautiful western Maui coastline, just north of Lahaina, is paradise found. The Aston Kaanapali Shores sits right in front of a beautiful white sand beach with the islands of Lanai and Molokai visible as a backdrop. Suitable for families, couples, and singles, this lavish property boasts beachfront rooms, streams, multiple pools, fully stocked stores, and a restaurant/bar. The white (and black) sand beaches of Maui attract a variety of tourists from the mainland and all over the world, but there are a multitude of other activities on the island and the Aston Kaanapali Shores can arrange those as well.  I also have to  mention that the staff at this Maui resort were so friendly and accommodating.

The rooms at the Aston Kaanapali Resort are ideal for a couple or for a family. The room I recently stayed in was well appointed with 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a spacious den, a very nice kitchen, washer & dryer, cable TV (my husband was stoked that he could watch the Dodgers), and a spectacular wrap around lanai (balcony) directly in front of the beautiful Pacific Ocean. This is where we spent most of our time when we were not on the beach. We had a spectacular view of the ocean while enjoying amazing sunrises and sunsets.  They were truly memorable! Staying at this resort felt like we were at home and we certainly didn’t want to leave. I was able to make breakfast everyday with the awesome kitchen we had. The Aston Kaanapali Shores resort is walking distance from a grocery store and many mom and pop restaurants.

Our family had a dream Maui vacation and staying here was a huge part of it. Our family will be returning to Aston Kaanapali soon!

  1. How beautiful!! Your family is just lovely and your pictures are gorgeous! XOXO

  2. What a beautiful destination and I adore RAINBOWS!! I think vacations are awesome when you can have a space to prepare meals. Makes it feel like home away from home.

    • I woke up the first morning to that beautiful rainbow. It was so nice to be able to cook for the family there and really enjoy the view! Thanks for stopping by! Ophelia

  3. Would love to have a chance to see the Islands some day. It looks like you all had a beautiful vacation. Great Pics! Thank you for linking up at the MTMmixer this week. Happy to have you!

    • Thank you Chirstine! It was fun to see how much my boys really loved it! Definitely will be joining the MTMixer again. Ophelia

  4. Nice! I wish there was an emoticon for the shaka brah sign! LOL! I’m not from the island of Maui but Oahu. Either way, the State of Hawaii is just beautiful all over! I left the islands in 2010 to live out here in TX. I just wished the beaches of Corpus Christi would be just as pretty! Oh well… a girl can always dream!

    • We love Hawaii! It is so beautiful and the water is so blue. I have to say the the CA beaches do not compare to HI. Yes, we can dream!

  5. This is so beautiful! I have wanted to go to Hawaii for a while now. This is a reminder of that for sure! One day! 🙂
