Kaanapali Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Enjoy spectacular views of the Pacific from this beautiful spacious 900 sq. ft. 8th floor one-bedroom condo (#818) at the Mahana on Kaanapali Beach - rated as one of the best beaches in the world.

Relax on the lanai or the luxurious leather chair overlooking the ocean. You may spot dolphins and even whales scampering below you.

In the morning, stroll along the uncrowded white sandy beach below you and enjoy a swim in the ocean or in the Mahana's private oceanside pool. And to cap the day, watch the sun as it lingers and slowly sets over the ocean right in front of you between the islands of Molokai and Lanai. Take a few minutes in the spa under the stars and fall asleep to the sound of the waves against the shore.

This tastefully furnished condo at the Mahana, rated #1 of 31 hotels and condo resorts , has a wonderfully comfortable king-size bed with a pillow top mattress in the master bedroom and a new queen-size sofa sleeper in the living room. The master bedroom and living room both open onto your own private lanai/balcony with a table and 4 chairs.

The kitchen, featuring new cabinets and granite counters, is fully equipped with everything you need to prepare a perfect sunset dinner to enjoy at the marble-based dining table or at another table on the lanai. The unit has 2 flat screen LCD cable TVs, a CD player with i-Pod docking and stereo, DVD, broadband high speed satellite Internet connection, a separate vanity area, a large beautifully renovated Italian stone tiled walk-in shower, and your own in-unit washer/dryer. Luxury linens, an iron and ironing board, and beach towels are all provided for your convenience.

You are only steps from the beach. And snorkeling, scuba diving, tennis, 5 world class golf courses, fine and casual dining and shopping are all close by the Mahana.

It's the perfect spot for a honeymoon, to celebrate a special anniversary, to house your wedding guests, or just to get away for a totally relaxing tropical holiday. And if you are having a family reunion, consider renting this unit along with our 8th floor 2-bedroom 2 bath corner unit (#819) right next door!

If this unit is booked, be sure to ask about our other 1 BR unit (#708) or upgrading to our 8th floor corner unit (#819).

You pay much less since you rent directly from the owner!

About Kathy

We both grew up by the sea, David in Ireland, Kathy in San Francisco and we always knew that however far away we moved away from the sea, we would always come back. After we met in college, we traveled much of the world together, but it was Maui and the stretch of beach in front of the Mahana that captured our hearts. Over the years, we returned to Maui and the Mahana for a month every summer. For our children, it was a second home. Now young adults, they still love coming back every chance they can. Once you have been to the Mahana, you’ll want to come back too!

Kathy purchased this condo in 1977

Why Kathy chose Kaanapali

We fell in love with the Mahana in 1977. We were at a conference in Honolulu and came to Maui for a day. We were walking along the north end of Kaanapali beach. The sun was setting between the islands of Lanai and Molokai. It was the most amazing sight! We turned around and saw Mahana. We knew right then and there that we had to buy one of these beachfront homes. For us it was the view and the view and the view! We had our pick of condos and chose #818 on the spot because of its incredible view, not to high, not too low, just perfect! We were still very young and buying this condo meant that we couldn't buy a house for several years, but we never regretted the investment in a beach home on Maui! Later, we did get a house (!) and we also bought two other condos at the Mahana (#708 in the Molokai building and #819, the corner condo, which is right next door to #818). For us, however, #818 is still a magical place and one we ourselves love coming back to year after year!

What makes this condo unique

For us it’s a home away from home. In winter we love watching the whales, in summer it’s the dolphins and turtles. I love getting up to see the dawn coming up over the ocean. My husband is mesmerized by the stars. We all enjoy walking or jogging on the beach, swimming and snorkeling in the crystal clear blue water, exploring all the other nearby beaches, Kapalua Bay, Napili Bay, Fleming Beach, Honolua Bay and watching the long sunsets. We also love going to the Farmers Market for fresh papaya and mangos and finding local fish to grill back at the Mahana. It’s the majesty of the ocean and the mountains. It’s the trade winds and the friendly people. It’s something else, totally special that is just impossible to describe. You have to come to Maui and the Mahana and you will experience it yourself!

Guestbook comments from the owner

The condo updates are fantastic! We first stayed in 818 in 2009 and just had to come back. We love the floor-to-ceiling windows and the lanai overlooking the ocean. The new granite counters and the cabinets are first class. The sound of the surf is so soothing that I had to make a recording to take home! Head north to the Blow Hole for a beautiful drive. Our favorite beach is DT Fleming!

Wonderful condo, superb amenities, fantastic view

  • 5 of 5

This was our third stay in Kathy and David's condo at the Mahana. We've enjoyed them all and hope to continue to come back. The condo is very comfortable, especially the bed. The view is outstanding. The kitchen is well supplied, we cook most of our meals in. The facilities at the Mahana--pool, hot tub, grounds, etc. are terrific. and the owners are extremely pleasant to deal with as well as being responsive if something is needed during the stay.

I stayed here for 10 days it is Amazing. The communication from the owners was always there this Condo is spotless, the views from the Lanai are out of this world especially in the evening to watch the sunset. The glass all around makes it feel like you could step into the water from your living room. There is no fault with this condo it is 100%, your local shops are close by. The pool area and hot tub is right there and the beach just steps away. It is like a dream holiday when someone tells you it is Paradise you will see why. I can not wait to go back as everything was right there.

10 days in paradise

  • 5 of 5

We found this condo through VBRO and had a great experience with the owner as well as our amazing honeymoon. Some highlights of 818: comfy bed, lots of beach toys, lots of bathroom and kitchen necessities, helpful owner with lots of recommendations, stunning views and great location. We can't recommend this unit and owner enough! Can't wait to visit Maui again!

Favorite Maui property!

  • 5 of 5

We rent often with VRBO and I don't usually review the property. This one,however, is an exception. We were delighted from the moment we entered. ....fresh flowers and a spectacular view. Everything was in perfect order and the kitchen was spotless and well equipped ( no ugly pots and pans here ). Coming in at night for the first time is a little tricky and we were told that a lot of people wind up at Kaanapali Shores. Supermarket and a couple of casual eateries are right across the street. We are feeling sad that we have to spend our last 3 nights at one of the big well known resorts in Kaanapali ....would rather be here.

A Charming Home Away From Home!!

  • 5 of 5

This was truly a "home away from home" place with all of the amenities and comforts anyone could desire. Mahana was the second stop on our honeymoon in Maui, and we could not have been more happy. Kathy met us when we arrived and gave us a tour of the condo, as well as greeting us with beautiful flowers to congratulate us on our wedding in Maui. Kathy was fantastic to chat with before arriving and answered any questions we had along the way. The condo is comfortable, high end decor touches throughout and the bed is simply divine! Plus the kitchen has everything you need to cook a delicious meal inside. We enjoyed many mornings on the beautiful lanai taking in the views. We will be excited to return to this condo for future Anniversary trips and vacations!

Simply an amazing stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for our 25th anniversary. The Mahana is an extremely well kept facilty, the staff very friendly and the location perfect. The condo... well simply stunning. The appliances, furniture, kitchen cupboards and counters all higher end quality and the bed the most comfortable we've experienced. Being from Canada, finding this condo on the web and sending our $$ to a complete stranger in the US... we weren't sure what to expect; but our highest expectations were exceeded. The snorkeling right in front of the condo was the best we experienced, with large sea turtles right off shore... the beach walk was perfect for an early morning run and to stroll and watch the sun set. Dukes Restaurant right beside the condo was a perfect atmostphere to close out the day... but we're still wearing off the calories from the hula pie! Since we've been back, we've recommended this place to several friends and co-workers and we will definitely be back very soon.
