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!
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, VCR and new flat panel LCD television with premium channels, digital reception and Apple TV 4K.

In particular, we are fond of the new center-island wood table, expansive granite counters, dual dishwashers and sinks, and large Sub-Zero fridge with ice maker.
Each of the 3 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, and brand new multi-function office machine. There are two laundry centers. Use of the garage is available.

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 Ka`anapali Resort hotels as well as Whaler's Village Shopping Center and its many restaurants featuring live music on the beach, can be reached within 1-2 minutes by car or on foot if you hike some distance down the beach through the Sheraton Ka`anapali Resort, then along a paved pedestrian walking promenade that hugs the coastal beach. From the heart of Ka`anapali 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 Ka`anapali Resort are endless.

"We had a fantastic time in your beautiful home, pool, beach, hot tub, whales, snorkeling. We did it all. Your home is so comfortable to stay in. Only one problem with a place this spectacular - time flies by."
"Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful home. It looked wonderful online and is even more wonderful in person. It was paradise. A very big thank you to everyone" at Private Paradise Villas.
"From the moment we inquired about the property till the moment we left the level of service has been outstanding."
"Dear Owner, Thank you so much for providing us with such a beautiful backdrop for our family vacation. We don't want to leave. In fact the men are out on the patio 10 minutes to departure cold drinks in hand, refusing to leave. It was so wonderful to feel we could just relax here at the house rather than spend our entire vacation running around looking for excursions. Everyone found peaceful corners in the house to find solitude and yet the rooms were large enough for the whole group to gather in. We loved the kitchen and I think we will all be sad to go home to our smaller and less fancy kitchens. Thank you for sharing your home with us. It was an absolute dream."
"We are feeling very sad as we prepare to leave your little piece of paradise today. We are from Indiana where a water view consists of the Ohio River. We love your home. You thought of everything in the kitchen. We love to cook and spent a lot of time doing so with the help of your perfectly stocked facility. The pool area is gorgeous. We felt like we were swimming in a hidden lagoon. The great beach access made it easy for us to go our separate ways when in the mood. Thanks for the books, the Hawaiian bath products, the music, beach equipment, tiki torches, hammock, and on and on. Heaven on earth!!".

|Beach & Ocean Access
|Access to world-famous Ka`anapali Beach is just steps from the house and the beach-side pool. Walk out directly on Ka`anapali Beach, a beautiful golden sand swimming beach that stretches for several miles along the shore in front of Sea Shells. The beach is nearly unparralled and is perfect for lap swimming, long walks, romantic evenings laying under the full moon or glittering stars at water's edge. Situated between Maui Ka`anapali Villas and several new interval ownership resorts, this stretch of Ka`anapali Beach is less crowded than the hotel zone. There are currently 4 homes on 6 contiguous one acre beach front lots on the coast adjacent to Sea Shells.
|Sea Shells is blessed with a really fun large lagoon shaped free form swimming pool on the beach side of the property. The pool is not fenced or covered. Guests with young children who do not swim well may wish to consider bringing a pool alarm. The pool is heated to 82 degrees year-round.
|Yes! We have added a lovely large 4 to 6 person hot tub spa which is professionally serviced weekly. From the hot tub you can overlook the pool, the sunsets, tiki torches, and out towards the ocean.
Central air conditioning throughout with multiple zones and ceiling fans in all rooms.
Air Conditioning should never be set to cool below 70-72 or the equipment may freeze or experience any other damage. Most homes and villas in Hawaii are equipped with residential grade equipment which does not provide bottomless cooling. Cooling is available to a reasonable temperature, usually in the 70-72 range on the very low end. Most guests find that a setting of 72-74 is very comfortable once a unit has been allowed to cool down and with doors and windows closed. At select properties, the air conditioning may only function to a temperature in the 72-74 range with lower temperature settings mechanically excluded.
|There is a built-in stainless propane BBQ grill, beverage fridge and large counter area under the outdoor covered patio.
|All bedrooms and the living room have digital cable service with a premium channel selection. The living room has Netflix and a new flat panel LCD television, HD digital cable reception with premium channels, Apple TV 4K, iPod dock, DVD, VCR and CD with surround sound and speaker controls in various rooms of the house.
|Indoor oval-shaped wood dining table for 6 guests. Facing the kitchen there are several more casual bar stools at a large semi-circular granite counter. Outdoor patio dining is available under cover or out under the stars by the pool. You are also encouraged to take trays and snack or dine in the sand on the beach at sunset!
