About Debi or Rod Conklin
Rod and I both grew up in San Francisco, married and moved to the Peninsula in 1972 where we built our home and raised our two children. In 2010 we moved to the Foothills east of Sacramento and are enjoying our new life there. As a family we spent our summers in Maui and the Big Island but always found ourselves gravitating back to Maui. Our first year at Ka'anapali Royal was in 1983 when our son was three and we have been enjoying the Royal ever since so that must say something. We have enjoyed bringing our kids, then with their spouses and now our five granddaughters. In June/July 2016 Maui was our destination and all 10 of us ventured across the Pacific pond to enjoy Enchanting Maui all together. Caitlyn, our oldest was 11, Riley and her cousin Hanna turned 7, Reese 5 and little Rowan turned 2 just after they left Maui. We have traveled throughout Europe several times, spent time in New Zealand twice but find relaxing in Maui just as rewarding. Rod loves to putter, both on the golf course and in the condo and I join him once and awhile. I enjoy helping out with the workload or stretching out with a book at oceans' door. In 2018 visited Florida with CA/Maui friends and in September cruised the Rhine River from Amsterdam to Basel. Then it was off to Luzern & Lake Como. 2019 will be exciting. I'll be celebrating my 70th and we'll be off to Iceland, London and South Africa. Big Game....here I come. In mid-Sept while we're in Africa, a new addition to our family will arrive. Two weeks later, it will be back to Maui. These trips are not all playtime you know, we have things to take care of after a busy summer of guests. We hope getting to know us just a bit will make the decision to trust us with your Maui accommodations an easier choice. Our reviews will confirm it as well. Mahalo, Debi & Rod Conklin
Debi or Rod Conklin purchased this Condo in 2001
Why Debi or Rod Conklin chose Lahaina
Most of all, the units are spacious and our location in the complex desirable. We have stayed in several complexes over the years but always found ourselves returning to the Royal. It's central location with Lahaina only a 10 minute drive and Whaler's Village directly across the golf course provides easy access to dining, shopping & of course Ka'anapali beach. A new shopping complex arrived in West Maui in 2010 across from the Lahaina Cannery Mall and improvements to the area are continuing. In 2014, both the Outlet Mall in Lahaina and a Target Store in Kahului arrived in Maui! More shopping options arrived in 2018 & soon a west-side Ross & Ace Hardware opening on the West Side - Hallellujah! Now if we could only get a mini-Lowes or mini-Home Depot on our side, life would be grand-er.

Excellent location, condo, and owners. No need to look further!
We really enjoyed our week at the enchanting Maui. The super clean condo had everything we needed and the furnishings and appliances were top notch. We all slept soundly on the very comfortable beds. We used the provided BBQ grill, cookware, washer and dryer, fast wifi, boogie boards, and beach towels. We also enjoyed the use of tennis and pickleball racquets free to check out from the office. The A/C unit along with the ceiling fans kept the condo very comfortable.
A 10 min walk gets you to the beach, restaurants and shopping or a short drive gets you to Lahaina with more restaurants, shops, and grocery stores..
Debi was an amazing host, very responsive, organized, and her attention to detail made us feel at home and welcomed, like a family guest. Thank you Debi! We hope to return someday!
Beautiful condo, highly recommend
My boys and I thoroughly enjoyed all of the comforts of home on our vacation! The condo has everything we needed, and more. It is a short walk or drive to the beach, I took a morning walk on the beach every morning while my boys slept comfortably. We were able to cook breakfast everyday before we headed out for our day of fun. Debi was amazing and thoughtful as a host. We look forward to coming back to Maui!!!
Our family of four (two teens) loved our first trip to Maui. We stayed a week and loved this condo. The location is within walking distance to the beach, restaurants, shopping and fun!
The property was perfect. Well stocked and clean, steps from the pool. Debi was great to check on us and make sure we had everything we needed.
It has great beds, well stocked kitchen, outdoor grill and an awesome A/C!
I would highly recommend this condo!
It is our responsibility to make sure our guests receive the best possible service. We have, and our next door neighbor also mentioned to us, the best guests ever.
Our guests obey the complex rules as well as ours, they respect the hours of quiet time, and most importantly, take care of our condo. It speaks volumes to us that they appreciate the effort we have put into EM to making it a top-notch condo.
We take pride in knowing that Enchanting Maui is respected and thank you for being part of our Enchanting Maui family.

Great hosts and beautiful yet accessible place to live
This is a beautiful home to stay with family where the home is neatly organised and the home is equipped with everything you need. It is a home away from home. Debi is such a great host and easy to communicate with. The location is about an approx 10 min walk from whalers village and the beach. It is located on the golf courses of Kaanapali. We would recommend anyone to stay here and it is very family friendly! We would hire this property again.
Thank you for the wonderful remarks regarding both your time at Enchanting Maui and kind words about the owners. We try our best to make your time stress free which gives you more time to explore all that Maui has to offer.
As advertised, we're your "Home Away From Home" and that's the way we like it. We provide what you'd have in your own home so that you want for nothing but food and drink. Every minute you spend running around to buy "stuff" you forgot, it's most likely inside Enchanting Maui.
Hoping we see your name in the down the road!
Great hosts and location with lots of amenities
This is the best vacation rental we have ever had from the owners, to the amenities, to the location and the price. We want to thank Debi and Rod for being such great hosts. From the beginning they were always very communicative with us. They go above and beyond in their service and even through personalized gifts. They obviously share their condo with pride and made sure we were ready to enjoy it as well.
Fantastic centralized location. The beach is a 10-minute walk as well as lots of shopping and restaurants within Whalers Village. We also spent time to the north in Napili Bay for snorkeling and took time to shop, eat and take in the sites along Front Street in Lahaina to the south. Highly recommend both.
Such great amenities at the condo. Lots of cookware that made it easy to prepare our own meals. The grill on the lanai was a definite plus. We made ample use of the beach towels, boogie boards, and even snorkeling fins which were a big help. They even provide a hose on the lanai making it easy to wash off all the sand once you return. Also from the lanai you are just steps from enjoying a pool as well. Washer and dryer are top notch. The bathrooms and overall decor are modern and clean.
Thanks again to the Conklins for helping to make our trip to Maui pleasurable and memorable.
Thank you so much for taking the time to review Enchanting Maui. It's gratifying to know that our efforts pay off and that they don't go unnoticed and are appreciated. Knowing we met our goals in providing a well-appointed and comfortable unit makes having appreciative guests, like yourselves, enjoy a carefree vacation. Mahalo, Debi & Rod
"Enchanting" Christmas and New Years with family on "Maui"
We booked our vacation with Deb and Rod almost a year ago. After working with them before our trip, I felt like we knew each other and were old friends. Once we arrived at their "home" we felt like we were home. Everything had been thought of ahead of our arrival. Every kitchen utensil was provided along with any spice you would want. We have stayed at other VRBO units, but Enchanting Maui went above and beyond. Our 9 year old grandson loved the boogie boards that are provided, along with many other beach items that were there for the use. During our stay, the barbeque grills in the pool area were being replaced, but a grill was on the lanai for us to use, just another of the items provided. From the welcome call from Deb after arriving to the follow-up email after we left, everything was great. We look forward to our next trip to Maui and our next stay at "Enchanting Maui".

Whale Watching is Seasonal. The whales start arriving in late October/early November and grace our waters until the end of April. If you're planning your trip during these months, plan on arranging a Whale Watch with the Pacific Whale Foundation. They are excellent and provide a well-INFORMED whale tour. Definitely worth the money.
