We have stayed at many different VRBO condos in multiple states and have never had a owner with more attention to every detail to make us feel welcome. Sophie was more than accommodating on our check out time. We even came in late on our day of arrival not many places were open for food after a long flight but we came into the condo to find a basket of local goodies put together for us. The condo has everything you need, it is a clean quiet paradise. Beautiful floor to ceiling windows and a large patio to watch the palms sway and waves roll in. A perfect place to watch the sunset from the lanai. One last piece of gratitude to share is that this is the first time I have EVER received a hand written card with my deposit check enclosed. Just goes to show the owners really do care about your full experience even after you have made it back home! It was wonderful to get a little token of Hawaii with the personal card since we were still wishing we were listening to the waves, watching the perfect Maui sunset. We certainly cannot wait to come back to this condo in the future.
We come to the islands every year and have stayed at several different resorts and I have to say this a great condo and location. Being oceanfront is what Hawaii is all about. Having breakfast on the lanai, watching dolphins and whales (whale season) in the morning, enjoying the turtles in the surf in the evening...well it just doesn't get better than this. The condo has everything you need...if it's not here you probably don't need it. Sophie is so accommodating, and she wants to make sure your stay in her lovely home is perfect. She makes the booking process so easy and she provides you with more than enough information to ensure your vacation will be everything you hope it will be. The view form here is just amazing, enjoying sunsets, and listing to the surf at night is the perfect way to end the day. I agree with the many glowing reviews that are listed so I won't duplicate many of the amenities listed, but if you are looking for a place to stay...I recommend this condo. Mahalo Sophie, your kindness and thoughtfulness is truly appreciated!
I have had the pleasure of staying at multiple Hawaiian beach front condos, but this one by far was the best of the best. From it's beachfront location with the perfect view of the whales (came during whale season) to the wonderful decor and cleanliness of the condo, I couldn't have asked for better. The condo is located in a prime location to get to everything you desire on the island, but private enough that you are able to relax.
I needed a last minute booking and Sophie was generous enough to open up her vacation rental to me with no hesitation. She made the booking process so simple and provided more than enough helpful information for my trip. Sophie went above and beyond to ensure I had the best vacation one could ask for.
With a great condo like this one and Sophie's kindness I wish I could go back there week after week!
This was our 2nd time staying in one Sophie's units at the Mahana (last year we stayed in her studio suite #803), and it was another fantastic experience. This unit is very comfortably furnished and extremely well equipped with everything you could need including beach chairs, boogie boards, binoculars for watching the whales, dolphins and turtles from the lanai, and fully equipped kitchen with barbecue utensils and condiments.
The most amazing feature of this unit, and all of the units at the Mahana, is the view. The pictures give a glimpse of what you're in for, but do not nearly do it justice. The Mahana is very close to the beach giving a truly ocean front view with unobstructed views of the neighbouring Islands of Molokai and Lanai. It is the perfect way to end each day sitting on the lanai watching the sun set over Lanai in the distance.
Sophie is an excellent host who wants you to experience all that Maui has offer. This is evident from the package of magazines, maps and brochures that she sent prior to our trip, and her impressive "Aloha" book that is in the unit that includes tips on places to shop, eat and things do. The book also includes menus for a lot of restaurants and brochures for every activity imaginable.
We love the location of the Mahana and the proximity to a number of great beaches and (a 5 minute walk) to the Times Market Grocery store. The Mahana is also very close to Duke's Beach House which is a great place for beach-side happy hour, and a short drive to the Maui Brewing Company, one of our favourite places to go for lunch. They have a great menu and selection of local craft beer.
Our experience in this unit was fantastic, and our experience booking with Sophie was a pleasure. Sophie really does make the experience memorable, and is the reason we are repeat renters from her. We look forward to staying in one Sophie's units again!
Thanks for another great experience Sophie!
We have been to Maui many times and always stayed in condos using vrbo, this is by far our favorite condo and location!
I can't think of one thing that the condo doesn't have that we would require, it's so well stocked with everything you could possibly need.
The location is wonderful, no hanging over the lanai to see the ocean it's right there in front of you. The sunsets are wonderful, lots of whales to see and a resident turtle right in front of the condo.
Sophie is wonderful, sent lots of brochures before hand, and has a wonderful book of suggestions of things to see and do in the condo including a voucher for free pancake mix at slappy cakes (yummy).
Unfortunately I was sick during most of our vacation, and was unable to get out exploring, but sitting on the loungers looking out at sea was wonderful, we thoroughly enjoyed our beach walks every morning.
We have booked for our next two visits and we are only home 2 days that's how much we would recommend Sophie's condo!

I'm a little late in writing this but we are looking to visit Maui again and this Condo will be first on our list!!! Our honeymoon was my 3rd trip to Maui and this Condo was hands down the BEST!
We spent 2 weeks at this Condo for our Honeymoon last year and it was just perfect! The Condo was extremely clean and well taken care of.
Sophie was an absolute pleasure to deal with and she was very accommodating. Not to mention the amazing welcome/honeymoon basked that was waiting for us upon our arrival!!! She even sent us brochures prior to our arrival so that we could work on booking our excursions! She highly recommended the Trilogy Excursion to Lanai and boy were we glad that she did. It was definitely one of the highlights of our trip!
Sophie, thank you so much for helping make our Honeymoon amazing and we hope to visit again soon!
