Sea Shells Beach House is one of the very few legal hotel-zoned vacation rental homes on the island of Maui. Maui island was voted the top island in the world by TripAdvisor's 2016 Travelers' Choice Awards! Maui island was also voted the top island in the United States by Conde Nast Traveler's Readers' Choice Awards published in October 2016.
Sea Shells is a beautiful spacious family-friendly beach front vacation home with a heated lagoon pool, strong air conditioning, three bedrooms and five bathrooms, all set directly on gorgeous award-winning sandy Kaanapali Beach. This west-facing home serves up glorious scarlet sunsets and dazzling moon sets, along with some of the island's best whale watching during the winter season. Kaanapali Beach is perfect for long romantic walks, swimming, kayaking, snorkeling, sailing and scuba diving.
Just a few of the inclusive no-charge complimentary benefits provided are high definition service on three of the televisions, free Netflix in the living room, parking for multiple cars, high speed wireless and wired internet access, local phone calls, mid-week housekeeping service (if renting at advertised rate or staying at least seven nights, in-villa safe, tropical bath treats, and personalized in-villa greeting orientation. Unlike at many nearby hotels there are no extra resort fees charged!
At Sea Shells, discerning guests will luxuriate in a contemporary styled and privacy gated home set on one acre of landscaped grounds with central air conditioning, a lagoon shaped free form heated swimming pool, outdoor hot tub spa, high speed wireless internet service, HDTV service in several rooms with Netflix service in the living room, iPod docks in each bedroom and the living room, a hotel type of safe for valuables, office nook with a fax/printer/scanner, and an exceptionally well equipped kitchen with abundant good-quality cooking, dining, and serving supplies.
The exceptional swimming pool reflects graceful palm trees which frame the garden. Swim under the stars at night by the light of tiki torches. We love this pool and consider it one of the most attractive and inviting of any vacation home in the islands! During cooler months the pool is heated on a complimentary basis.
The great room of Sea Shells Beach House opens to the outdoor patio and pool and has cathedral ceilings with two lounging areas in addition to an entertainment center with iPod dock, CD surround sound, DVD player, VCR and new flat panel LCD TV with premium channels and digital reception. The kitchen has just been re-stocked with all new supplies and small appliances commensurate with luxury standards, including an espresso machine, coffee grinder, abundant service ware, red and white wine glasses, champagne flutes, martini glasses, Henckel knives, top quality cookware, and so much more to use and enjoy! In particular, we are fond of the new center-island wood table, expansive granite counters, dual dishwashers and sinks, and large SubZero fridge with ice maker.
Each of the three bedrooms has its own private en-suite bathroom and entertainment system. A convenient office nook provides a large desk, ethernet cable to hook into the high speed cable modem, office supply, fax machine, and brand new multi-function office machine. There are two laundry centers. Use of the garage is available.
The single level design of Sea Shells Beach House provides very comfortable living for guests with limited physical movement. This property can be enjoyed by guests using a wheelchair although it is not specifically out-fitted for special needs.
A hop and skip from Sea Shells is a beach front kiosk which rents ocean sports equipment including surf boards, boogie boards, skim boards, Hobie cats and snorkel sets. During summer months jet skis may be rented in front of the Hyatt Hotel. A convenient beach front restaurant, Castaway, is adjacent to the kiosk serving breakfast, lunch and dinner in a casual beach front setting. The primary Kaanapali Resort hotels as well as Whaler's Village Shopping Center and its many restaurants featuring live music on the beach, can be reached within one to two minutes by car or on foot if you hike some distance down the beach through the Sheraton Kaanapali Resort, then along a paved pedestrian walking promenade that hugs the coastal beach. From the heart of Kaanapali Beach hop on a sailing catamaran for a snorkel sail, scuba diving, or romantic sunset cocktail cruise. West Maui airport is minutes away for easy access from other islands. The recreational activities available within Kaanapali Resort are endless.
