About the property

1BR, 1 BA, Beautiful Remodeled Kitchen & You can't get closer to the beach!

Enjoy spectacular views of the Pacific from this beautiful spacious 900 sq. ft. 8th floor one-bedroom condo (#818) at the Mahana on Kaanapali Beach - rated by CNN as one of the best beaches in the world.

Relax on the lanai or the luxurious leather chair overlooking the ocean. You may spot dolphins and even whales scampering below you.

In the morning, stroll along the uncrowded white sandy beach below you and enjoy a swim in the ocean or in the Mahana's private oceanside pool. And to cap the day, watch the sun as it lingers and slowly sets over the ocean right in front of you between the islands of Molokai and Lanai. Take a few minutes in the hot tub spa under the stars and fall asleep to the sound of the waves against the shore.

This tastefully furnished condo at the Mahana, rated one of the top hotels in Hawaii by Travel and Leisure , has a wonderfully comfortable king-size bed with a pillow top mattress in the master bedroom and a new queen-size sofa sleeper in the living room. The master bedroom and living room both open onto your own private lanai/balcony with a table and 4 chairs.

The kitchen, featuring a travertine floor, beautiful new cabinets and granite counters, is fully equipped with everything you need to prepare a perfect sunset dinner to enjoy at the marble-based dining table or at another table on the lanai. The unit has free high speed Wi-Fi, 2 flat screen LCD cable TVs, a CD player with i-Pod docking and stereo, DVD, a separate vanity area, a large beautifully renovated Italian stone tiled walk-in shower, and your own in-unit washer/dryer. Luxury linens, an iron and ironing board, a hairdryer and beach towels are all provided for your convenience.

You are only steps from the beach. And snorkeling, scuba diving, tennis, 5 world class golf courses, fine and casual dining and shopping are all close by the Mahana.

It's the perfect spot for a honeymoon, to celebrate a special anniversary, to house your wedding guests, or just to get away for a totally relaxing tropical holiday. And if you are having a family reunion, consider renting this unit along with our 8th floor 2-bedroom 2 bath corner unit (#819) right next door!

If this unit is booked, be sure to ask about our other 1 BR unit (#708) or upgrading to our 8th floor corner unit (#819).

You pay much less since you rent directly from the owner!

About Kathy

We both grew up by the sea, David in Ireland, Kathy in San Francisco and we always knew that however far away we moved away from the sea, we would always come back. After we met in college, we traveled much of the world together, but it was Maui and the stretch of beach in front of the Mahana that captured our hearts. Over the years, we returned to Maui and the Mahana for a month every summer. For our children, it was a second home. Now young adults, they still love coming back every chance they can. Once you have been to the Mahana, you’ll want to come back too!

Kathy purchased this condo in 1977

Why Kathy chose Maui

We fell in love with the Mahana in 1977. We were at a conference in Honolulu and came to Maui for a day. We were walking along the north end of Kaanapali beach. The sun was setting between the islands of Lanai and Molokai. It was the most amazing sight! We turned around and saw Mahana. We knew right then and there that we had to buy one of these beachfront homes. For us it was the view and the view and the view! We had our pick of condos and chose #818 on the spot because of its incredible view, not to high, not too low, just perfect! We were still very young and buying this condo meant that we couldn't buy a house for several years, but we never regretted the investment in a beach home on Maui! Later, we did get a house (!) and we also bought two other condos at the Mahana (#708 in the Molokai building and #819, the corner condo, which is right next door to #818). For us, however, #818 is still a magical place and one we ourselves love coming back to year after year!

What makes this condo unique

For us it’s a home away from home. In winter we love watching the whales, in summer it’s the dolphins and turtles. I love getting up to see the dawn coming up over the ocean. My husband is mesmerized by the stars. We all enjoy walking or jogging on the beach, swimming and snorkeling in the crystal clear blue water, exploring all the other nearby beaches, Kapalua Bay, Napili Bay, Fleming Beach, Honolua Bay and watching the long sunsets. We also love going to the Farmers Market for fresh papaya and mangos and finding local fish to grill back at the Mahana. It’s the majesty of the ocean and the mountains. It’s the trade winds and the friendly people. It’s something else, totally special that is just impossible to describe. You have to come to Maui and the Mahana and you will experience it yourself!

Guestbook comments from the owner

The condo updates are fantastic! We first stayed in 818 in 2009 and just had to come back. We love the floor-to-ceiling windows and the lanai overlooking the ocean. The new granite counters and the cabinets are first class. The sound of the surf is so soothing that I had to make a recording to take home! Head north to the Blow Hole for a beautiful drive. Our favorite beach is DT Fleming!

Amazing Experience - Beautiful Condo and nice owners

  • 5 of 5

We loved the condo, its well maintained, nicely decorated and views are mesmerizing. Perfect location, close to everything and free parking :-).

Owners were staying next door, super nice couple, shared tons of tips with us for our first vacation in Maui. They have personally decorated the place, very authentic touch. We were pleasantly surprised to see amenities, as simple as salt, sugar, ketchup, spices etc stocked up. Welcome pineapple and Hawaiian chocolates were perfect to start the vacation. Small boards for kids to swim along with snorkeling gears, chairs etc was there to use.

We will definitely going back here soon!!!

As always' stunning

  • 5 of 5

Once again a very good stay at the Mahana.

Our unit was great with views like living in a dream. Going to sleep to the melody of the ocean is truly one of the best song we have ever heard. So many things you want to do but it is hard to even leave your lani. We will be back. The only draw back is for the second time at the Mahana we have a had noise from the kids coming through the beach access from the park parking between the Mahana and The Honou Kia resort to party have kept us up.

Superb in every way!!

  • 5 of 5

818 Mahana was an excellent choice for us. Kathy and David's condominium is in a great section of the island, and I am glad we chose to stay in this location. The unit itself has everything and then some to make your stay comfortable. They don't skip a beat in providing for all your needs...everything from beach and snorkel equipment, to a washer and dryer, to a totally outfitted and stocked kitchen, not to mention welcoming gifts including a Maui Gold pineapple and chocolate covered macadamias...the place is just incredible. It just so happened that Kathy and David were next door in their condo that they also own and were so gracious about inviting us in and detailing places to go, things to do, and restaurants to visit. My only regret is that we did not get to stay longer...I would consider staying here again in a heart beat. One of the best vacations my husband and I have taken and staying in this unit helped ensure the wonderful time we both had.

Beautiful condo!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this condo. It is beautiful, clean and exactly as pictured. We enjoyed watching the sunsets from the comfort of the balcony. The washer and dryer were great to have as well as the snorkeling gear and beach chairs that were provided. We would highly recommend this condo for anyone wanting to stay on Maui!

A Fantastic Stay at the Mahana!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved Suite 818 at the Mahana and so wish we were still there!

The views were incredible from both the living room and bedroom! The owners are lovely to deal with and the unit is so well equipped...we appreciated everything provided from the laundry detergent, complimentary long distance calling to Canada, great TV even small touches like the aloe gel, tin foil, books to read, and fully equipped kitchen including a filtered water/ice-making fridge! There were even snorkel masks, flippers and great portable beach chairs. The snorkeling from the beach (just a 5 minute walk from the building) was wonderful!

The building itself is lovely and so close to everything you would need on holiday. It was a pleasure meeting the owners, Kathy and David, in person and the thoughtful welcome gifts were very much appreciated. We look forward to returning to beautiful Maui and this unit as soon as we can!
