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.

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
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.
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!
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.
Love you ocean front location.
This condo is fantastic! Beautiful views of the beach, ocean, and Maui sunsets. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need to prepare meals. There is a grocery store a short walk away, making everything extremely convenient. The next time we are in Maui, we would definitely look to stay here again! Thanks, Karen and Bernd Bremer for sharing with us your little piece of paradise.
We truly enjoyed our stay at Mahana Resort. Good location, nice pool area, very comfortable unit.
We would recommend staying here.
One thing we never found much information on the previous reviews was the beach at this resort. Not really a 'swimming beach', but
great beach right next door and very easy access. We snorkeled right there and saw lots of fish and even a few turtles.
First off, Karen is wonderful to work with. She is quick to respond, and has everything you could possibly need in the unit (especially the kitchen). The building itself is extremely nice and has a wonderful pool area. The location was centrally located in West Maui, just minutes from many of the areas you will probably visit.
My wife and I visited in late September, and there was not much of a beach that the ocean does not cover. While this is not necessarily a bad thing, it is something to keep in mind if want to lay out on the beach a lot.
Overall, our experience was great. We would highly recommend this location, as well as working with Karen.
My husband and I are sadly preparing to leave this beautiful vacation condo. We had the perfect vacation here and this condo will meet all your hopes and dreams and more! Words can't express how perfect this unit is for a rejuvenating, peaceful vacation. Karen, the owner, was wonderful and thoughtful in all our arrangements with her, and truly understands all the special details that are needed to create the perfect vacation environment. We are so sad to leave, but are already dreaming of scheduling a return trip as soon as possible if we are lucky enough to return!
The description of this wonderful condo in home alone doesn't do it justice. The property is 5 star and the view is a perfect 10!
This property gives you the luxury you usually only find at very expensive resorts at a price that doesn't break the bank. It's central location at ka'anapali puts you close to the greatest beaches and the activities in Lahaina, yet it isn't in a crowded noisy area.
Ziplines are nearby. The ocean is a marvelous place to try or perfect your stand-up paddle boarding, Haleakala Volcano offers hiking and mountain biking, and an amazing sunrise. Lahaina, an historic whaling town is great for getting a taste of Hawaiian dining, art and history. Upcountry offers exotic flowers, a lavender farm, parasailing, and a fascinating artist community at Makawao.
