Kaanapali Condo Rental Photos and Description
Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

EMAIL us your rental request (much better for us than telephoning as we do our booking online) for this spectacular Ocean Front Luxury condominium 118 (MA118) on the ground floor is less than 75 feet away from the ocean; with dramatic western views of the sunset year round through massive floor to ceiling windows, and offers a beautiful view of the golden sandy beaches of Kaanapali; the panoramic views of the beautiful Pacific Ocean and islands of Lanai on the left and Molokai on the right. NO RESORT FEE CHARGED!

Tucked away at the end of Kaanapali Shores Place, it attracts owners and visitors alike, who enjoy quiet ocean front living, long walks on the sandy beach in both directions; is close to a variety of restaurants, souvenir shops, a great market with anything you could think of (Times Market, formerly known as Star Market), diving and snorkeling gear shops and a short shuttle ride away from the historic town of Lahaina and golfing.

Beautifully remodeled in July 2007, with brand new Drexel Heritage furnishings, Travertine flooring, extended Private Lanai, Granite Countertops, Cherry cabinetry with ebony finish, Flat screen LCD TV's, Pebblestone custom shower and many more amenities! Our prices are indicative of the quality of the condo; it is one of the more luxurious units at the Mahana, is directly accessible to the beach and by renting from owners, you get exactly what you see here - no surprises on what your unit will look like - so don't play luck of the draw on a getting a wonderful condo for your Maui vacation and we've added many personal touches, including binoculars for our guest to use! We’ve also included a new printer in case you need to print your boarding passes, grocery list, etc.

And since you are booking through our Vrbo website, you are now Our personal Vrbo guest (not our property managers guest) and so therefore, when you return to book again thru our vrbo website, you get our discount at time of check in (only one discount per booking - at time of booking). And one more thing - NO WAITING - Our Vrbo guests BYPASS the FRONT DESK in the lobby and go straight to the Kiosk to the right, to sign in to get your parking permit to put in your vehicle. That's it!! Everything else will be in the condo. You never deal with the Front Desk - (except to get a code to gate access to Duke's across parking lot). Otherwise Mahana front desk has nothing to do with owner-managed condos; that's when you contact us or our property managers.

The beachfront pool and lobby have been remodeled and in the pool area, there are brand new BBQ's where you can grill up that fresh mahi mahi from the market, or where you can sit and relax in the super-sized hot tub and sip your fresh beverage that you can purchase from the beverage cart just a few feet away or bring with you.

From Sept to May, 1500 - 2,000 humpback whales come to the Maui waters to mate, give birth and care for their young. They are very easy to spot! Toothed whales and dolphins are year-round regulars as are sea turtles; even look for the occasional eel, stingray or octopus! You can walk out and snorkel right in front of your condo or walk to the left between the Mahana and Black Rock and you will find the absolute best snorkeling with the many amazing fish of Maui!

Whaler's Village is fun for shopping and lunch, only a 5 minute drive away (we liked Leilani's and the Hula Grill) and Lahaina is about 10 minutes drive away with many spectacular eating and shopping establishments. Definitely go see the Old Lahaina Luau, it's highly recommended. You'll never want to stay anywhere else on Maui; truly a dream for newlyweds, families, couples for anniversaries or first trips to Maui. Just plain wonderful for those who wish to maximize their time together! Many couples get married on the island and you can find a lot of information for your ceremony at the Maui Weddings website, and many island florists to choose from, such as the Kaanapali Romance Florist. Make your wedding a memory to cherish!

So come be our guests and be pampered in luxury! We have SPECIAL RATES for those who want to stay monthly - please inquire! And for those who want to stay on higher floors, we also own MA1104 and MA1008, all at the Mahana, and you can see them at vrbo as well, AND remember to always email your rental inquiry as we might be traveling without a phone but always check our emails. When leaving vrbo guest comments online- DO NOT INCLUDE CONDO # as vrbo will usually delete the whole comment.

Mahalo and Aloha!

The Owner purchased this condo in 2008

The best condo location we've seen! Within walking distance to groceries, take-out, beach restaurants, dvd rentals and dive shop. Within driving distance to Lahaina, shopping, championship golf, sightseeing and the boardwalk is perfect for jogging or walking as it starts at the Mahana and continues past Black Rock, Whaler's Village and on.

The panaramic views are out of this world; standing on your private lanai, you will be looking into the west where you'll see the setting sun each evening and looking to the left is the island of Lanai and to the right is the island of Molokai with the wide channel in between where you will see resident sea turtles every day; the occasional sting ray, schools of spinner dolphins and of course our favorite - the humpback whales from Sept to May. Our condos are all remodeled and equipped with everything you could want. We arrive twice a year, take inventory and restock items that we think our guests would enjoy, including toiletries & medicinal items, spices and various non perishable shelf items, cleaning supplies, batteries, paper, writing utensils, scissors, tape, lighters for candles, beach items and bar spirits (when we see the stock is low), including soft drinks. We make sure the kitchen is adequately stocked; that there are containers for leftovers, food wrappers, baggies, cooking utensils in decent shape and all kinds of extras that we think could be used in the condo, including hair dryers, makeup mirrors, candles, calendars, games, guide books, etc. We would like to thank all of our guest who do 'pay it forward' as we requested for the in between times that we are not there; our other guests really appreciate it!

As seasoned travelers and visitors to Maui, let me say that the Mahana, specifically this unit, has no equals (unless you're renting other condos from the same owners). Carrie and Russ have cornered the market on luxury condos at the Mahana. Not all of the condos there are created equal as they are individually owned and thus reflect the elegance (or lack thereof) of their owners. By the time you have begun researching the Mahana you will have already determined that it is the closest condo complex to the water (30 ft) the closest to a supermarket, drug store, fresh fish outlet, restaurants, etc. Let's set aside geographics and move to topics such as the luxury, convenience, exquisite decoration and impeccable customer service that sets their condos apart from all of the rest. I write this review only after carefully reserving my favorite weeks in advance through 2016. Upon arrival you will find this condo is "picture perfect." As you research your perfect accommodation let's talk briefly about the geographic location of condos within the Mahana. First, know that there are no bad condos as they all face the ocean. You have the choice of two towers each with 12 floors.
There is no restaurant or bar on the premises. You will soon appreciate that! Duke's Restaurant is a very short walk. Breakfast, fast food, Times Supermarket, drugstore, pizza, Subway, etc., are all a short walk.
The furnishings in this condo are top grade luxury simply unequaled in any other condos (not owned by these owners) we have viewed at the Mahana. This condo and all of the condos owned by Russ and Carrie have fully loaded kitchens with granite counters, refrigerator/freezers, dishwashers, washer/dryers, mirrored walls and virtually every kitchen appliance, gadget, whisk, bowl, cutlery, coffee maker, pots and pans, etc that you can imagine. There is an unbelievable collection of spices, oils, etc; if you are a cook, you will need virtually nothing else. Flat screen tvs, luxurious Cal. King beds, large walk in showers, etc. Perhaps most important is the customer service attitude of the owners, Russ and Carrie. They do an unbelievable job of caring about their guests and responding to their needs as if they were at the front desk of a hotel when in fact they are far away but always available by email, even if they are traveling. We have ceased looking at any other condos at the Mahana. Their condos are booked out years in advance for a reason!

Your condo is absolutely beautifully decorated in a subtle and very well thought out Old Hawaiian style. There is nothing I would change and I felt very comfortable at at home. I am so glad I decided to pick your 1st floor condo over a penthouse one because we walked right out onto the fully furnished lanai and out to the ocean all day everyday. No need to take an elevator or stairs to get out to the lawn and beach. It was absolutely perfect in every possible way. I wish I had something negative to say so other people would look past your condo and book somewhere else and it will be available for us next year but I simply cannot come up w/anything bad to say. Your taste in furnishings and finishings is impeccable & we appreciated how it was clearly a nod to Old Hawaii w/o using pastels or bright colors to surround you in stereotypical Hawaiian vacationer style. I cannot even begin to convey to you how wonderful our stay in your condo was. We are very sad to leave this paradise and wish we could do as you have done and buy a unit in the Mahana, completely remodel it and have a little piece of heaven to have and to share w/others. Thank you so very much for sharing your home with us. We will definitely be back and will highly recommend your condo to anyone we know who will be vacationing in Maui. Thank you so very much for your hospitality, your attention to each and every detail to make our stay just perfect and for being gracious enough to share this amazing condo w/us. You have no idea how wonderful our stay has been for us and we owe much of that to you both.

This is my very first time here in Maui (honeymoon)! I couldn't believe that upon our arrival to your condo & seeing the inside for the first time, I was blown away by the exact details following the reviews site and photo sharing from previous visitors/guests and owner's (you)!! House keeping definitely does a great job! Everything in the beautiful kitchen was so clean and well stocked. We love your condo and plan to come back!! We left a lot of extras behind too & love the idea as well to pay it forward. Newlyweds...

We have been to maui several times in the past few years and have stayed at several different condos. This is the best we have ever stayed in. We love the furnishings and the bathroom and floors with stones and marble. We like your "pay it forward" approach. One comment - the cupboard above the refrigerator stays very warm from the refrigerator. It is not good for wine storage in any heat. You might look to store any wines in a different cupboard. We thank you for having such a nice place, and we have had a wonderful vacation here!
*NOTE FROM OWNERS: We will go back down when we return this guest book we are typing from and see if we can move the bar to another cupboard - thanks for the info!! 12/22/13

for our honeymoon this week. We had both previously been to Maui a few times but this trip by far has been our favorite. A lot of that had to do with our stay here in your condo. I often found myself saying, "let's go back home!!" instead of the "condo" - simply because it felt like home. We were so impressed with all of the amenities you left for us (the bar! the cooler! the portable fan!), not to mention the quality and style of your furnishings. Let's not forget that your condo is on one of the best beaches in Maui. My new husband bought himself a spearfishing gun and was out on your beach every morning trying to catch a fish… on our last full day here today Derek caught himself a fish and we BBQ'd & ate it for lunch on your lanai. What a special memory! We had such an amazing couples massage at Maui Zen Day Spa, eating out @ Kimo's & Aloha Mixed Plate and watching the breath-taking sunsets from your lanai every night. We can't wait to come back and stay here again. It was truly a perfect honeymoon. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Mahalo!

at this same condo. We knew the 1st time we came here that we definitely were coming back. I wanted to see things that we didn't get to see the 1st time we were here. Like the red sand beach and the 7 pools. Although we didn't get to see the red sand beach, the 7 pools were awesome, some amazing views if you take the hike up along the coast. Molokini was the high light of this trip. I would def recommend the Trilogy venue if you decide to visit Molokini. The crew was great, they cater to your every need and the food was yummy. We got to eat at Mama's Fish House again which is ALWAYS delicious! We will miss our time in Maui as we always have a great vacation. We're sorry we're leaving but until next time - Aloha!

12 day HI honeymoon. What an incredible time so far! This condo has been perfect. We've enjoyed dinners on the lanai a few times. The local Expedia expert has been very helpful - we ended up booking all of our excursions for Maui, Kauai & Oahu through her. We enjoyed meet skiing on day 1 and had a fabulous surfing lesson on day 2. We went to the Royal Hawaiian Surf academy and both enjoyed it (myself more than Steve) {:>D That night we went to Ulalena - what a fantastic show! We highly recommend this one. Day 3 we did the Road to Hana through Valley Isle Excursions. Our tour guide was fantastic! We both really enjoyed this trip. This company includes a visit to Pools of Ohe'o. Our guide's name was "Tim" if you would like a good one. Today is our last full day on Maui. We had booked the Haleakala van tour and bike ride, but due to weather, we chose not to go. Looks like Steve & I will be making the 10 hour journey from Windsor Ontario Canada, back to Maui so we can enjoy this tour some other time! The "pay it forward" was a great idea! We left a bottle of wine in the cabinet & some downy sheets in the laundry cupboard. Also some bottled water. Thank you very much for opening you beautiful condo to us. What a fabulous start to our honeymoon! Love,

I'm going to miss it! I don't know how a condo could get any more perfect - just beautiful decor! My husband and I celebrated our 10 yr anniversary w/o our kids. Your condo was close to everything but far enough away to feel peaceful. Loved walking to Duke's and we liked Kimo's in downtown Lahaina (same food as Duke's - nice view both places). Shaved ice at Local Boys West across from Banyon Tee Park is Delicious (get the scoop of ice cream on bottom). We highly recommend Royal Lahaina Luau for couples only - very romantic. Mama's Fish House - Excellent food (super pricey!) (long drive) but, worth it. Napili Bay best beach for the kids to swim at. Thank you so much for sharing your paradise with us.
