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.

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 Lahaina

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.

Spectacular condo

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to beautiful Maui and it was enhanced with our stay at this wonderful condo. Very clean and well appointed. Had everything we needed for a perfect stay. The view was magnificent and it felt like we were sitting right on the water. Wouldn't change a thing!!

Breath taking views & comfortable condo

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay here. The condo is beautiful and we especially enjoy sitting on the lanai watching the whales & turtles. The Mahana facility is well kept and the location is good.

First time in Maui--not disappointed! Never tired of the view.

  • 5 of 5

It was our first trip to Maui (me and my husband); we stayed two weeks and didn't really want to leave. The view from our condo, so close to the water, was amazing and never got old. We opened the sliding glass doors and went to sleep with the waves and woke up to the waves. We lost track of the number of whales we saw swimming, playing, breaching right outside our lanai. The binoculars at the condo were very much appreciated! Right out front of the condo was something that looked like rock, but was actually (according to a sign out front) coral and you were not supposed to walk on it. To snorkel or get into the water for swimming, it's just a short walk down the beach to get in safely. We went for the last two weeks in February and the weather was upper 70s, lower 80s, some clouds, and only 1-2 days when the rain thwarted our plans. The pool and hot tub and grill at the condo were nice and easy to use (we grilled out twice). Lots of privacy in this condo. The floor-to-ceiling windows allowed you to see all parts of the water, no matter where you are; it really brings it all inside for your viewing pleasure. The condo was well-stocked and comfortable with lots of helpful information about the appliances and local restaurants and things to do. Grocery store within walking distance. Very pleased with our stay, and condo, and all of the people of Maui. Will definitely be back! Thank you!!

Owner's Response: Aloha Kelly, February is such a great time to see whales from our penthouse. So glad you enjoyed the privacy, views and lulling sounds. We love it too! Come back again and be sure to book early like you did for whale season. Aloha-Kathy and Michael

Beautiful Setting

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I came here to celebrate our 45th wedding anniversary. On previous trips to Maui we have always stayed in the resort hotels or timeshare units. We thought we would give vrbo a try this time. We were not disappointed. Kathy was very responsive during the reservation process and throughout our stay. We didn’t realize this unit was on the top floor until we got into the elevator and saw our floor was the top button. We walked into the unit and were awestruck by the fantastic view of Lanai and Molokai, and even Oahu off in the distance. The condo is elegant with top of the line appliances and furnishings. The lanai was a great spot to take coffee in the morning and to star gaze at night.

The pool faces west and is shaded most of the day by the building and access to the ocean is difficult due to the coral and rock reef directly off the beach. There is a great boardwalk, that goes all the way to Black Rock and south Kaanapali, for early morning walks. There are good places to eat and a grocery store across the street. The Fish Market Maui is a great place to pick up dinner and there is a Duke’s Restaurant at the resort next door.

For daytime trips to Lahaina we took the bus which stops on the street by the Mahana. It’s only $4.00 for a day pass and you can take it to Kihei and Kahului. Beats finding a place and paying to park.

Paradise as Promised

  • 5 of 5

Everything mentioned about this condo is an understatement, it's absolutely amazing. Looking out at the view makes you feel like your in the ocean. Lisa and I enjoyed having the option of having home cooked meals with a well stocked kitchen or eating out. The whole Mahana complex is immaculate and well groomed. The sunsets from the condo are the best on the island. Sea turtles hanging out with you everyday. This is paradise and is our home away from home every trip to Maui from here on out!!! Thank you Kathy and Michael from John in Delaware

Perfect & beautiful condo

  • 5 of 5

Perfect condo for a couple on vacation. Very clean, well equipped, beautiful view (beautiful is an understatement), and an elevator ride away from the beach. It doesn't get much better than this.
