Overview

Kaanapali Condo Rental Photos and Description

MAHANA 1 BEDROOM - OCEANFRONT - 20 Steps To The Ocean Sand!

This beautiful, fresh condo has amazing unique ocean front views right from the living space and bedroom. The large patio area is a wonderful extension of the footage for meals or just to be in shade and read! The lawn is right out your door.....And did I mention the ocean is only 20 feet away! The sound of the waves will lull you to sleep and the whales will entertain from December through April.

We have done everything we can think of to make this a luxurious, relaxing and fun vacation spot for 1 to 4 people. From the padded upholstered headboard, and California king bed with hotel luxury linens to the Keurig coffee maker. The brand new sleeper sofa has a nice thick mattress and the tasteful decor is world class.

We have provided beach chairs towels and even a cooler to make traveling less hectic and easier to pack for!

The kitchen is fully stocked with everything imaginable. Cooking ware and Tupperware. You will probably even discover the all spices you need to make your favorite recipe in the cupboard!

Not only will you find wonderful snorkeling walking distance from the condo - and nice sandy beach entrances in either direction but the tennis court and shuffle board are right at your fingertips as well. The pool and hot tub are a nice addition to swimming and floating in the warm ocean waters.

The shopping complex across the street has a wonderful grocery store, subway, pizza, coffee.....Even a place for manicures! Only a few blocks north and you will find the farmers market, snorkel bobs and bad ass coffee ( actually what its called ).

This property is very unique on Maui - although there are many beautiful places to stay, ocean front properties like this are hard to find!

About Heather Hansen

My husband, son and I live in the beautiful state of Washington, where we own and operate a sports medicine clinic.

Heather Hansen purchased this condo in 2013

Why Heather Hansen chose Kaanapali

After many years of travel and discovery on Maui - we got hooked on the Mahana. Living in the Northwest we are very spoiled with the beautiful landscape of mountains, lakes and rivers.....so needless to say, we don't like to settle for a 'partial ocean view'!

I went for a walk one day on the ocean shore of West Maui and happened by the Mahana. I couldn't get over how big the windows were, and how close the buildings were to the beach. The next time we returned we stayed there and never turned back.

As Maui vacationers prior to our purchase, we had experienced the island the same way many of our guests would. The Kaanapali area offers a tremendous variety of beaches, proximity to Lahaina, the famous boardwalk, the most amazing sunsets and glorious views of Lanai and Molokai. There are many reasons why we chose the Mahana. The property offered the type of relaxed feel - not one of a big resort where you have to set your alarm to get your spot by the pool! It is close enough to the world class dining the resort areas offer, but far enough away that you have choices. Subway, pizza, fish market, sushi, farmers market and groceries that are frequented by locals as often as tourists. But the VIEW from the condo is the #1 reason! Imagine watching the whales from your living room or patio while you sip your morning coffee, or evening pina coloda. I'm not kidding!! This is what sealed the deal. There are not many properties on Maui with this kind of view. No 'partial ocean views'. You will find only 100%, straight on, in your face OCEAN!!

We now own two units. Our first purchase was in 2011 of a two bedroom home on the 9th floor (HomeAway listing 905764). And most recently the purchase of this unit on the bottom floor - both the magnificent views from the 9th floor and the wonderful access a bottom floor unit grants.

What makes this condo unique

Our family loves to be comfortable. And we love beautiful things. When you are spending hard earned money for a vacation, you should expect the place you are staying to be cared for and designed well. How do you FEEL when you are in a space? Are the colors soothing? Is it clean? Are the pillows and sheets luxurious? Is the bed spread 100 years old? YUCK!!! We pay attention to these things and take your trust in us very seriously.

When you stay in our Maui home, you will be provided with everything you can think of to make your vacation a special one. From provided beach chairs and towels to spices in the cupboard!

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at the Mahana for a few years in another unit. When that one wasn't available we were panicked, as we have come love what this ocean front property has to offer. Fortunately we ran across this unit and discovered it was only two units down from the previous. We love the ground floor as it gives us immediate access to the beach. Heather has done an amazing job stocking her unit with everything you will need to make sure your stay is comfortable. There are also a lot of extras! Heather was great in her communications and was generous enough to let us check out late on the day we were departing. We will definitely check with her for our next trip to Maui!

Beautiful condo right on the beach

  • 5 of 5

Do not hesitate to book this condo! You will enjoy a perfect location on Maui. The condo itself is beautifully decorated, has a wonderful shower, and all the supplies you will need for a comfortable stay.

Heather is a joy to work with. She truly wants your stay on Maui to be the best it can possibly be. Thank-you Heather!

We'll be back next year.

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My stay was for relaxing and healing and what better place than the Mahana. This condo is beautiful, comfortable, and has everything you need to make your stay the best. There is nothing they have overlooked and are so helpful if you need anything. Sunsets and the ocean puts you to sleep at night. Best ever!

Look no further. Best condo ever!

  • 5 of 5

This place exceeded my expectations in every way. Not only is it directly on the beach, beautifully decorated with a great ocean view, you get to work with the best home owner I've ever had the pleasure of renting from.

The pictures of the condo absolutely display the property as it is. New, clean, comfortable, beautiful, with the best view. You can see two islands, turtles, surfers, and sunsets right out of your windows. The layout of the lanai made the place feel very private and we rarely saw any neighbors. We made breakfast/dinner several days and found that the kitchen was well stocked with cooking essentials (oil, salt & pepper, salad dressing, even wasabi) and we used the grill a few times as well. Each night we sat on the lanai and just relaxed. The furniture is comfy and I loved that there were soft blankets for lounging around inside (not that we did that much). The bathroom was recently remodeled and the water was plenty hot. There were boogie boards, beach chairs, some snorkel equipment and the very important beach cooler that we took everywhere. Parking for the first floor unit was awesome, so close to the front door and always available. Which is nice when you have beach towels, chairs, a cooler, and backpack to bring in.

Now about the owner, Heather. Honestly, she was equally as amazing as the condo. I've been using VRBO for years...Heather was the most helpful, responsive, and caring person that I've had the pleasure of renting from. She had well thought out suggestions and sent the complete packet of information about the property and things to do nearby. Her "rules" for the use of the condo were minimal and it's clear that she wants everyone to be comfortable and love her home as much as she does. She accepts credit card payments (which I will say is a rare find for me on VRBO) and literally returned my deposit within 2 hours of checking out. Normally I have to wait 30 days to receive my refund and I have had to remind other owners that the payment was due! Not with Heather, easy breezy. She alone made my stay that much better because I didn't worry, I just planned the fun stuff!!

Things not to miss: The Fish Market Maui. THANK YOU HEATHER! The best place ever! Seriously. Bamboo forest hike in Haleakala National Park. Ka'anaapli Beach (but drive around the island and check out as many beaches as you can). The Ka'anapali boardwalk (do the whole thing and get a nice walk in after dinner).

THE best area to stay in Maui

  • 5 of 5

The unit was well decorated and had a very nice layout. It was very well equipped with everything you would normally have to bring or buy to enjoy the beach, make a meal, or of course serve drinks. The ground floor has its pro's and cons. Easy access to the beach, no elevator wait, and a few steps to the car make the ground level very convenient. A slight lack of privacy only because the grassy area just off the unit's patio does get some of the building's tenants strolling through occasionally. The shrubs that border the beach also make it difficult to see the waves crashing on the beach but you still see PLENTY of ocean. If you want to lay in bed and watch the ocean you risk passer-bye's looking into the bedroom. Close the shades for privacy but then no view. The sound of the waves right outside the door always reminded you of where you are. The owner is excellent to deal with and really went out of her way to make our stay enjoyable. I highly recommend this property. If you're on the fence of hotel vs Vrbo then opt for this property and you won't regret it. Use the money you save on a helicopter tour of the island. Not cheap but well worth it.

Fantastic property right on the beach

  • 5 of 5

We were first time visitors to Maui and not sure what to expect. We were pleasantly surprised with our choice of accommodations. The condo is exactly as described and we were not disappointed with anything.

We had worries about privacy on the ground floor, but it turned out to be quite private. I am sure that people were strolling along the beach just in front of us, but you could not see any of them. The lanai provided excellent shelter and we had many hours of relaxation there. The kitchen was outfitted with enough equipment and condiments that we were able to make all our meals on site. The BBQs were kept very well and always available.

The Kaanapali boardwalk starts outside the gate of the Mahana and provided pleasurable early morning and late evening outings. The reception of Wifi on the beach was an added bonus.

We did tour some of the other areas of the island, and decided if we come back that we would again stay in Heather’s ground floor suite – we could not have asked for anything better or an easier host to work with.
