The activities desk in the lobby will organize any activity you wish, from a snorkel trip to a dinner cruise, a zip-line to a kayak tour. There are shops and restaurants, even a farmer's market nearby. The new Dukes oceanfront restaurant, for breakfast, lunch, dinner and happy hour is a few hundred yards from the Mahana.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Dear Karen, What a wonderful time we had at your condo in Maui. We loved every minute of our stay. Everything at the condo was lovely, so well organized and so clean! We loved going to sleep at night listening to the waves. What fund to have Duke's restaurant just a short walk away. Thank you again for your generous donation to the North Lake Tahoe Historical Society of your Maui condo.
Let the spirit of aloha captivate you as it did us. We count our blessings each day we're lucky enough to be on Maui, one of the world's most beautiful places. We first came to Kaanapali in 1979, and it was love at first sight. And returning to Maui on our once a year sojourn is always a joy with something new to discover. So, abandon the schedule, shed the necktie or the pantyhose, and be rejuvenated! Maui does that!
The view! The condo is near to perfection. The beautiful beach walks, stunning sunsets, romantic rainbows and potent pina coladas. We found it all. The weather here is about as perfect all year 'round as one could ask for. It is the BEST PLACE to watch the whales in winter. Maui never feels crowded, but due to its visitors, has great recreation and many fantastic restaurants and activities.
On those days you want to do nothing, Mahana 705 is idyllic. Listen to the ocean as you relax on the lanai, at the pool, in the hot tub, on the beach. The ambience is always fun, but mellow. No cell phones on the beach here! We walk to the farmer's market for tropical fruit and flowers, and fresh fish for dinner. On the days when you desire a little more activity, it's a short walk to the best snorkeling park on the island, or a short drive over to Whaler's Village or Lahaina for some gifts for the folks at home or to go to a luau. It's a convenient spot from which to take a longer excursion out to Hana and the Seven Pools, or up to the top of the volcano for the sunrise and a little hike. The concierge at the Mahana will find you anthing from a dinner cruise to a kayak trip. There's always something new to discover, even after 30 years!
