Lahaina Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2 adults 1 small child)

Captivating views. Romantic sunsets. The Pacific reaches out to the horizon, with the islands of Lanai and Molokai to the west. Mahana 705 is your inviting and thoughtfully equipped home-away-from-home designed to help you get the most out of your trip to Maui.

From the lanai in winter, watch the humpback whales play offshore, and year 'round look for sea turtles. Activities include swimming, paddleboarding, surfing, kiteboarding, outrigger paddling and kayaking. Or just relax and let the world go by from the oceanfront lanai of this idyllic condo.

The décor is charming Hawaiian style. There are 2 Flat Screen TVs a DVD player, and a Stereo. There is free wifi in the condo. The king bed is a "westin heavenly bed" new in 2016.

The kitchen is bright and 'user-friendly.' It is equipped with most utensils and appliances you'll need for cooking, dining and drinking. It has granite counter tops, stainless steel refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave and flat top range for easy clean-up. There is a coffee maker, coffee grinder, blender, toaster, and a citrus juicer. Spices are available for your use. The Mahana has the greatest gas barbecues by the pool for everyone's use - also a fun place to meet fellow travelers.

The two full baths feature over-sized rain-style shower heads, delightful after a day at the beach. One bath is accessible from the hall, and one is privately located in the master bedroom. There are binoculars for watching the wildlife, and books describing all the activities, the history, Hawaiian drink making, the fish you'll see while snorkeling,

The Mahana consists of two twelve-story buildings connected by a classic Hawaiian style entrance and lobby, with a beautiful stretch of sand and lawn in front. You can walk along the beach for miles, then return to the Mahana for a relaxing swim or soak in the ocean view hot tub.

The in-unit washer dryer means traveling light, making 705 the perfect home away from home. Beach chairs and coolers are provided for trips away from the Mahana.

The Expedia desk in the lobby will organize any activity you wish, from a snorkel trip to a dinner cruise, zip-line to a kayak tour. There are shops and restaurants, and a farmer's market nearby. Dukes Oceanfront Restaurant, located next door to the Mahana, on the beach, is fun for breakfast, lunch, dinner and happy hour. Whaler's Village is a short distance (approximately 3 miles - you can walk to it along the beachwalk which starts at the Mahana). Lahaina and Kapalua are a few miles further - an easy drive for sightseeing and golf. The Mahana attracts a relaxed group of travelers, seeking a quality island experience in an authentic and beautiful Hawaiian setting. Call for the answers to all your questions, and returning guest discounts.

Mahana 705 ~ an ideal location to enjoy all that Maui has to offer, or... to just do nothing at all. Let the beauty of Hawaii surround you, let the ocean waves gently lull you to sleep, and the tropical scents of ginger and hibiscus awaken. Your dreams of Hawaii start here.

About Karen Bremer

Let the spirit of aloha captivate you as it did us. How can one not fall in love with this beautiful setting. We have been returning to Kaanapali since 1979, and our once a year sojourn is always a joy with something new to discover. So, abandon the schedule, and be rejuvenated! Maui does that!

Karen Bremer purchased this condo in 2005

Why Karen Bremer chose Maui

The view! The condo is near perfection. The beautiful beach walks, stunning sunsets, romantic rainbows and potent mai tais. We found it all. The weather here is about as perfect all year 'round as one could ask for. It is the BEST PLACE to watch the whales in winter. Maui never feels crowded, but due to its visitors, has great recreation and many fantastic restaurants and activities.

What makes this condo unique

On those days you want to do nothing, Mahana 705 is idyllic. Listen to the ocean as you relax on the lanai, at the pool, in the hot tub, on the beach. The ambience is always fun, but mellow. No cell phones on the beach here! Walk to the farmer's market for tropical fruit and flowers, and fresh fish for dinner. On the days when you desire a little more activity, it's a short walk to the best snorkeling park on the island, or a short drive over to Whaler's Village or Lahaina for some gifts for the folks at home or to go to a luau. It's a convenient spot from which to take a longer excursion out to Hana and the Seven Pools, or up to the top of the volcano for the sunrise and a little hike. The concierge at the Mahana will find you anthing from a dinner cruise to a kayak trip. There's always something new to discover, even after 30 years!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Karen, What a wonderful time we had at your condo in Maui. We loved every minute of our stay. Everything at the condo was lovely, so well organized and so clean! We loved going to sleep at night listening to the waves. What fund to have Duke's restaurant just a short walk away. Thank you again for your generous donation to the North Lake Tahoe Historical Society of your Maui condo.

Beautiful Condo

  • 5 of 5

I can't remember a place that my biggest complaint was too many throw pillows. I hate that they end up on the floor, then the clean bed. This property is exceptional. Karen has decorated it beautifully, you can tell she really cares. There were adequate supplies and the condo was spotless. I have rented many condos through VRBO and others and this was by far the best property ever.

-The view is great

-The property itself, very nice, good location with shopping and fishing close by.

-You do want a rental car, Maui is beautiful

-Karen was super responsive, both before I arrived and with the questions I had upon arrival.

No better Sunset View on Maui!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful, fully furnished condo with all details thought of. Beautiful lanai to sit and watch the sunset. I never slept better, listening to the waves crash below me. Beautiful property. Walking distance to Duke's, on top of the beach, spacious, fully stocked kitchen. My husband and I sure liked having two bathrooms!!! Small washer and dryer, lots of grills and close to The Fish Market, so you can go get your own fish and eat it on the beautiful lanai. Close to the best beaches on all of Maui, (Napili, Kapalua). Very happy with our choice and with Karen's helpfulness in making sure our trip was the best!

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I we enjoyed our time and our condo in Maui! Condo was fully furnished and clean. The bed in the master bedroom was very comfortable. This was my second time to Maui and both times I was staying at Mahana and I loved it! It's so many things to do and is just breathtaking. I just like to thank Karen for letting us stay in her beautiful condo. I will definitely go back! :)

Great Property!

  • 5 of 5

Clean, fully furnished condo. Great layout and space. Perfect floor. Beach is less than 50 yards from the lanai. Great sunsets. Can hear the waves splashing on the beach. Takes less than 2 minutes from your front door to go down the elevator and walk on the beach. It's quiet. Close to everything in West Maui by car. Many great things to do just by walking down the beach. We have not complaints about the condo or location. It's a perfect relaxing spot. I would highly recommend it for any couple. If we come back to Maui we will stay here again. Thank you! Jason and Lindsie (unpaid endorsers)

Stunning views.

  • 5 of 5

Firstly I would like to thank Karen for letting us stay in their beautiful condo, any questions we had were answered very quickly (we live in Australia),communication was excellent.This was our first trip to Maui and first in a condo. We could have not asked for anything better, the condo is spotlessly clean throughout.The kitchen is perfect for cooking any meal with a large fridge/freezer. The large lounge room was very comfortable as was the large bed,with the same beautiful view and sound of the ocean.Location is very good for nearby supermarket and Dukes for dinner,drinks and Hula Pie !

The only mistake we made was only a 5 night stay, next time would be at least 7 nights or maybe longer. We have found out why Maui is so special to a lot of people and why would anyone look further than to stay in #705 at the Mahana ?

Perfect setting in Feb. For living on beach, whale watching and turtles from the condo

  • 4 of 5

Great condo, walk out door to swimming pool and beach. Whale watching, turtle watching, monk seal watching. Convenient to supermarket. Convenient to almost all attractions. Only negative, it needs a really really good clean job, including rugs, drapes, etc. and a new couch.
