Spoiled for Life

  • 5 of 5

This condo has the best view on the island! When you are on the lanai you can look out to the islands of Lanai and Molokai, and splashing whales during season. When I opened my eyes in the morning I could see whales from my pillow! The condo is on the 8th floor and it is so close to the ocean you feel like you are on a ship. Except there are swaying palms....

Great central location on Maui. Grocery shopping (nice Times market) and plenty of restaurants within walking distance. Cannery mall in Lahaina about a 10 minute drive away.

Sophie provides everything needed. Plenty of cleaning supplies, paper products, bath products and all the extras; snorkeling equipment, boogie boards, cooler, even binoculars! Washer and dryer in the unit is such a nice feature.

Local goodies from Sophie are a sweet touch. She is so wonderful to deal with and provides great recommendations in the book she leaves for guests.

Treat yourself and stay in this lovely condo. I am forever spoiled!

Fantastic view, great owner extras.

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at the Mahana, but first in this condo. The Mahana location cannot be beaten, as long as you don't mind seeing whales all day long during the winter season. It's incredible to be able to take in the ocean views from first thing in the morning until sunset. Regardless of what time we returned from our daily activities, we could lounge on the lanai and enjoy the weather and the scenery.

What makes this condo stand out from the Mahana rooms managed by the hotel service are the extras Sophie provides - beach chairs and umbrella, beach towels, snorkel gear, body board, binoculars, soap, shampoo, dishwasher detergent, laundry soap, cooler, and her detailed notebook about Maui activites and restaurants. Extra nice - Sophie made sure we knew about all of this before we arrived, so we didn't have to pack or plan to purchase any of those items.

As far as the attractions go, the Mahana is at the north end of the Kaanapali Beach area, and the beach is literally just down the steps from the lawn. There are a number of eating places within walking distance, and a full grocery store at the driveway entrance to the property. The big resorts begin just to the south, and there is convenient access to their restaurants and shops via the ocean front boardwalk. Lahaina is only 3-4 miles away, with all of its shopping and dining, as well as the boat dock where many ocean excursions originate.

As the photos show, the unit is clean and comfortable, and nicely decorated. The kitchen is well equipped, There are several chairs in the room, and a table and chairs on the lanai. No need to make the bed double as seating. Wi-Fi works well, too.

We certainly hope we can come back again.

Owner's Response: Mahalo nui loa Jeff! I really appreciate that you took the time and effort to provide such a glowing review of my studio unit at the Mahana. As you pointed out in your feedback, I do provide many extras and amenities for my guests so that their stay is not only memorable but hassle free. My guests can spend their time enjoying the beaches and attractions in Maui instead of in stores shopping for necessities! The Mahana is the perfect base for a vacation since it is located minutes from popular attractions, restaurants and dining. And what better place to relax than the private lanai overlooking the ocean and neighbor islands of Lana'i and Moloka'i! Magic! I look forward to your return to our paradise home! A hui hou, Sophie

Fantastic Experience at Mahana 803

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic holiday at Mahana 803. The difference between just a nice stay and a wonderful experience was thanks to all the extras provided by Sophie ...the wonderful communication, the well equipped condo, the beach chair, umbrella and snorkels, the delicious basket of local treats, the list goes on.

Of course the spectacular view and the comfort of the condo all played a part.

We would definitely return and heartily recommend number 803. Sue and Frank, Australia

From the time of reservations till my guests depart, I am always available to provide recommendations and to assist my guests. We live in Hawaii so it is important for us to share our aloha!

Excellent condo and great owners

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at the Mahana every one of our8 trips to Maui over the past dozen years or so, each time in different units. We've tried to stay at this particular unit the past 2-3 times but it's always been booked. We lucked out this time. Big time. We just returned from our 10 night stay; we're already trying to figure out when we can return for a longer stay. The unit is on the 8th floor just above the main palm trees. Great views. It's clearly well maintained and clean. And, most importantly, Sophie is one of the most attentive and responsive owners we've experienced...and we've stayed at rental condos in Hawaii, on the mainland and in Europe. We're looking forward to our next visit. Mahalo, Sophie.

Over the Top

  • 5 of 5

We recently returned from a 3 week stay in this amazing condo and once again had the vacation of a lifetime. Sophie and Bob could not be more thoughtful people to rent from. This is our second time renting from them and the thoughtfulness they put into making your vacation so relaxing is amazing. This condo had all the amenities you need for your stay. The location and view is one of the best you can have on Maui. Watching the whales and dolphins from the condo lanai to the private evening sunsets is priceless. The beach walk path begins right next door which gives you access to numerous restaurant choices and swimming/snorkeling beaches. Get in a car and you there is so much to do within a short distance. Sophie has taken the time to make a beautiful book of all the major attractions in Maui and has many of the local restaurant menu's included. The gift basket you receive upon arrival is such a nice touch and shows how thoughtful Sophie and Bob are. We are already planning our Maui 2017 vacation and only hope that we will once again be able to rent this beautiful condo. You need to look no further if you want to rent from someone who truly cares that you have a great vacation and have a view that will make any vacation A++. Thank you again Sophie and Bob for everything. Aloha til 2017

Owner's Response: Mahalo nui loa for the awesome review! We take great pride in providing our guests with the very best experience during their stay. And I would have to agree with my guests' opinion that this location and view is the best in Maui! Our property is located directly oceanfront only steps from the building! Enjoy rainbows, sunsets, and whales in the winter from the private lanai. Magic! Sophie and Bob (Owners)

Map

Kahului Airport (OGG): Approximate driving time is 45 minutes and distance is 31 miles.

Driving directions from Kahului Airport: Exit the airport on Keolani Pl and proceed one mile. Stay in the middle lane and continue onto Dairy Rd / Hwy 380, which becomes Kuihelani Hwy / Hwy 380 at the intersection with Puunene Ave. Continue straight on Hwy 380 for five miles until it ends. Turn left onto Honoapiilani Hwy / Hwy 30 and proceed 22 miles. After passing Lahaina and Kaanapali, turn left onto Lower Honoapiilani Hwy and proceed one-quarter mile. Turn left onto Kaanapali Shores Pl and proceed one-third of a mile to hotel.

Tip: Hwy 30 turns into a two lane highway, (gorgeous drive), once you reach Lahaina the road widens again into a four lane highway, about 5 miles after it widens, you will need to turn left on L’Honoapiliiani, there is a light at this intersection. You will need to turn left into the first driveway, (lined with palm trees!) There is no street sign for Kaanapali Shores Place but you will see “Aloha” greenery for Kaanapali Shores Condominium property just beyond our entry, continue down the road bearing left, past Sunterra (Kaanapali Beach Resort) and Maui Kai Condo, and to the end of the road is the Mahana.
