Our spacious corner unit has one of the most outstanding views on Kaanapali Beach. Standing at the window, you feel as though you are floating above the ocean. Guests have an unobstructed view of Black Rock and Lanai to the South and Molokai to the North. Watch the whales between Maui and Lanai from December through May right from your living room. Enjoy both views in comfort and luxury in our newly refurbished two bedroom, two bath unit, which features a full kitchen, air conditioning, dishwasher, microwave, flat screen televisions in the living room and both bedrooms, wireless internet and a washer/dryer.
Enjoy the sunset each evening on the private lanai. The resort also has a heated pool, hot tub, a tennis court, and shuffleboard. There are tennis rackets and balls in the condo for our guests to use. The Mahana is directly on the beach and the reef is great for snorkeling.
There is a coffee and sandwich bar on site as well as a DVD kiosk. For a delicious lunch or dinner, Duke's Beach House Restaurant is an easy walk across the parking lot (you can see Duke's from the south-facing windows in the condo).

My husband, son and I live in the beautiful state of Washington, where we own and operate a sports medicine clinic.
Coming from an area that offers hiking, biking, water skiing, snow skiing - and jaw dropping beauty, we were a bit picky about where to spend our vacation time. After numerous trips to Maui, we were hooked and couldn't imagine spending time anywhere else.
On one of our vacations, I went for a walk 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 the 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 wonderful dining the resort areas of the strip offer, but far enough away that you have choices. Subway, locally owned fish tacos, 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 lanai 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 this two bedroom home on the 9th floor. And most recently the purchase of a 1 bedroom on the bottom floor (listing #3579847) - both the magnificent views from the 9th floor and the wonderful access a bottom floor unit grants.
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!
