Maui Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Premier Penthouse Condo - Oceanfront Mahana -

Only unit with own hi-speed secured internet. Can stream HD. Romantic and Luxurious. Spectacular 12th floor, one-of-a-kind penthouse with 180 degree views. Step into this totally remodeled Tommy Bahama dream vacation.

When we look to stay away from home, it is so important to us that we feel comfortable when we walk in the door. We have created a wonderful space where you will want to spend time together. We know the difference! You won't be disappointed and will find our Penthouse to be everything you hoped for.

As you enter #1216, you will see floor to ceiling windows with views of the ocean, whales, sunsets, canoes, sailboats, and the Islands of Molokai and Lanai. Being on the Penthouse floor offers total privacy and the Mahana only has a handful of 12th floor units. When you're on the 12th floor nothing obstructs this spectacular scenery or the feeling of seclusion in Paradise.

From the 'Tommy Bahama' style Living Room and Dining Area the wall of mirrors enhances the views everywhere you look.

Whether you are dining on the lanai with the ceiling fan and light for romantic evening dinners or watching surfers while enjoying lunch, the views are unparalleled. The lanai features travertine flooring, table with four chairs and custom copper artwork. Our lanai furniture is stackable and easily movable so you can be assured of sitting in the shade on hot days or moving in the sun to get a tan.

Sleeping well is so important to us and we think it is important to you. Our luxurious California King is the top of the line Tempur-Pedic Grand plus down pillows providing you with the most restful sleep you will ever experience. You can lie in bed and watch the moon on the ocean or step through the sliding doors to your lanai. The bedroom decor is tropical and lovely.

The custom gourmet Kitchen features cherry cabinets, granite counters with arched ends, all GE Profile stainless steel appliances, side-by-side refrigerator with filtered ice/water dispenser, microwave, oven with convection and all appliances necessary for your comfort.

The extra large walk-in shower stall with bench is done in travertine. There is travertine tile flooring throughout. The washer/dryer stack is behind mirrored closet doors for your convenience. Flat panel TV's include HD and Showtime/HBO, CD, DVD and VCR are in both the Living Room (55' Samsung HD with Blue-Ray player) and Bedroom as well as ipod docking stations and are just a few of the exceptional appointments. Plush, new Bassett sofa. Koa appointments. No expense was spared on this luxury Penthouse unit!

About Kathy Rain

Hi. We are Michael and Kathy Rain,owners of #1216 Penthouse at the Mahana. We are Realtors in the San Francisco Bay Area with Coldwell Banker Real Estate and are very particular about properties. Michael is also a professional musician playing guitar for over 55 years with 2 CD's including one Hawaiian CD called Island Rain. We are passionate about each other after 36 years together and our love of Maui. We are avid hikers and have had the most incredible hikes around the Island. The Mahana is our second home and our goal is to rent to couples that would like to feel like it is their second home too. Aloha Nui Loa.

Kathy Rain purchased this condo in 2004

Why Kathy Rain chose Maui

As long time Realtors in the San Francisco Coastal communities, we wanted to find a view vacation home that was as good or better than what we have at home. When we decided to purchase a vacation home in Hawaii, we visted the 4 main Islands as well as Lanai. We looked for an Island that would have enough to do without the big city feel and population and where we wouldn't have to be concerned with major bad weather. Maui was the perfect choice. We went to every part of the Island and settled on North Kaanapali Beach. We looked at every condo complex and found that the Mahana was the only all oceanfront condo. We also loved the fact that the bedroom faced the water instead of the mountain. We only wanted the top floor, 12th-Penthouse, and we wanted the Lanai building. We found the perfect place.

What makes this condo unique

We love the fact that there is a reef in front of the Mahana which means that to access the water, you would have to go 100 yards in either direction. This keeps the beach activity and noise in front of our condo down to a minimum. There is boardwalk that starts just south of our building that goes all the way to the Hyatt Hotel which about 2.5 miles. What a wonderful walk to get coffee or 'earn' your lunch at the many great places in Kaanapali. BTW, we also continue walking south to Lahaina. The Maui bus system is great and we can take a return bus ride that drops us off 1 block away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for letting us stay at your wonderful condo again. Our visits here are always priceless and we charish every moment we are here.

Awesome View

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED your condo! What an awesome view! We stayed so busy seeing Maui, we weren't there much during the day, but it was such a nice place to come home to in the evenings. We especially loved our mornings on the lanai. Everything was perfect when we arrived. The place was spotless and everything was in order. It was so very nice, quiet and peaceful. We got many beautiful pictures from the lanai - a beautiful sunset, a rainbow, the beautiful blue ocean. We sat on the lanai at night, and had an amazing view of the stars. I would definitely recommend your place. Thank you for an awesome anniversary trip.

Owner's Response: This makes us so happy to hear! We love our place and to hear that you loved being there makes us smile and glad to share it. We work really hard to always keep everything as perfect as we can. I'm glad you used the fans like we do and enjoyed Lahaina Grill and Mama's. Such awesome restaurants. Please take a moment and copy your wonderful email comments and put them at our site on for other people to read when they are trying decide where to stay. We would really appreciate it. We hope you can come back during whale season. We usually are booked close to a year in advance for the prime periods which are mid January through the first week in March. Warmest Aloha Kathy

Absolutely Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

I just returned from spending 3 weeks on Maui and the last week was spent in this beautiful unit! The view is everything you could ask for - from whale watching which I did off and on all day to just the perfect peace from being in such a gorgeous place. Everything you needed was in the unit and the unit was spotless. I had already done many outings during the previous 2 weeks, so i pretty much spent most of each day either in the unit or out by the water.This was just perfect. Thank you for sharing your unit!

Mahana Penthouse

  • 5 of 5

It's a wonderful condo on the 12th floor of the Mahana. Beautifully decorated! We enjoyed our stay very much!! Michael was a BIG help when we had trouble getting the TV to work on Super Bowl Sunday. We love the Mahana and if you are looking for the best view, it's done from the top floor!!

Loved - loved - loved the condo and the vacation.

  • 5 of 5

The condo was beautifully decorated, well equipped and extremely clean - most appreciated. The whale watching, sunsets and sunrises were spectacular. Location was perfect - loved being close to Duke's - and all other amenities at the property were fabulous. Hope to stay again in the future. You would not be disappointed.

Erased all worries!

  • 5 of 5

I had always stayed in hotels during previous visits to Maui, so I was concerned about whether or not I would like a condo stay. My concerns, however, were quickly forgotten once I saw this place, which is every bit as beautiful as the online photos. Very few properties are right on the water, as this one is, and I loved listening to the waves break on the beach from our lanai. I also learned that I enjoy having laundry facilities; I appreciate not having to schedule my time around hotel maid service, which is often unnecessary; and having a full-size refrigerator and a microwave were godsends. I liked that the complex seemed more quiet than others (I never heard a peep from neighbors), and the pool was small but serene. Loved the spacious shower and comfortable bed! Duke's is our favorite restaurant in the area, so it was great being able to walk there in about four minutes. The access to the beach walk is wonderful, too; it's about 2-1/2 miles to Whaler's Village, and we did that walk more than once. Made us feel that we were working off our calories! (By the way, some reviews said that the flat-screen TV in the living room could not be angled, but it definitely can be.) Oh, and if we had questions, Kathy was immediate with her responses. I can't think of anything more that we could have asked for, so I would say that this condo is pure Paradise.

very nice

  • 4 of 5

the property was very, very nice. it felt like you were in the ocean because the condo was so close to the water. lots of rainbows, also. you don't get a sunset in November because the sun is setting in back of one the small islands to the left, think it is Lanai, if that's important to you. you have to go further south down the coast to see it set into the ocean.

thought the decor could've used a little improvement with colors, patterns and accent pieces and a few more pictures where there were some spaces for them. tv was on a strange angle due to the layout of the condo. a bracket that allows the tv to slide out and turn would've given better viewing of the screen although we didn't watch a lot of tv but to some it may be important! would've been very helpful having instructions for the use of the remotes by the remotes. when you arrive, you're tired and probably don't know where the paperwork is or least where the info. about the remote is in the instructions. seeing all those remotes after 9 hrs. of flying and airports can be quite overwhelming! also would've been help to have some instructions about the use of the shades, some were quite hard to work initially and we didn't want to damage them or force the operation of them if we weren't doing correctly, just little stresses when you're exhausted.

restaurants on the ocean are very close by, Duke's, which you can walk to thru the parking lot and the major hotel luxury resorts all have outdoor cafe on the ocean just a few miles south. great little local restaurant right across the street you come in on. in the s/c across the street and it's called Java Lava, I think. very eclectic and so, so interesting to take in all the decor. there's entertainment almost every nite and good food!

Owners are very NICE and accommodating and are very accessible. would recommend especially if these minor issues were addressed.

Otherwise, the amenities, the kitchen supplies, appliances were great. very nice condo with no noise problem from other units!
