A fantastic unit!
This was our 4th trip to Maui and our 2nd time staying at the Mahana, and this was the best unit we have stayed in. The unit is very comfortable and extremely well equiped. The owner, Sophie, also adds a lot of personal touches that make the experience even better - when we arrived there was a welcome package for us that included treats from Hawaii, such as coffe, macadamia nuts and chips. Sophie has also compiled a very impressive and extensive "Aloha" book that includes tips on places to shop, eat and things do. The book also includes menus for a lot of restaurants and brochures for every activity imaginable. The unit also has a number of guide books, including a snorkel guide that we used to discover some great snorkel spots we hadn't been too. The view from the 8th floor is amazing, while we were there we saw whales, dolphins and two turtles that seemed to hangout just infront of the Mahana, all from the lanai!
The location of the Mahana is fantastic, there is a grocery store a 5 minute walk away (Times Market) that we found to be cheaper than Safeway and much more convenient. We also discovered that old airport beach, located just down the beachwalk is fantastic for snorkelling, even for beginners and recomend checking out. We would also recommend checking out the Maui Brewing Company located a short 5 minute drive up the highway - they have a great selection of locally brewed beer and a good food menu.
Overall, this was our best trip to Maui in large part because of this unit and all of the special personal touches that the owner puts into making sure her guests have a great time.
I highly recomend this unit and we intend to book it again.
Owner's Response: Aloha Drew!
Mahalo for taking the time to review your stay in our lovey condo at the Mahana! I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay in Maui. As you noted, the panoramic views from the 8th floor are fantastic and seeing dolphins, whales and turtles from the lanai (balcony) is a unique experience. It's also one of my favorite spots to watch the sunset. Thank you for the wonderful feedback regarding my personal touches I add for each guest. It's important that each of my guests feel at home and also enjoy some flavors of Hawaii. I look forward to welcoming you back very soon. Thank you again for your glowing review.
A hui hou!
