About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

You will begin your Mahana tropical experience when you open the front door! From our ocean front condo on the 11th of 12 floors, you will see windows that go from the floor to the ceiling, & wall to wall in the living room. The Pacific Ocean is right there! On closer inspection, you will see the islands of Lanai'i to the south, Molokai'i to the north, beach going north towards Honokowai or south towards Black Rock. The lanai is fully fronted on the Pacific Ocean with access from both the living area and the bedroom through large wall to wall, ceiling to floor sliding-glass lanai doors. In the bedroom, this allows for a total view of the ocean when you wake up! This gives you the guaranteed view! Now the second part of the Mahana experience is the sound! Open the lanai door (either one of them!), and hear the Pacific Ocean kiss the beach that is literally a stone's throw away! A true delight for your senses!

Although a complete remodel was finished in January of 2011, we make various upgrades each year to keep it at its Premium Level.

There is porcelain flooring throughout the entire unit with custom built-in cherry wood and granite cabinetry in the kitchen, the bathroom, and the living room, as well as custom soffit light features in kitchen and living area.

This is one of the few resorts that is on a sandy, swimming beach with DIRECT ocean front views and central A/C. The views are to die for, whether you are sitting in your living room, getting a snack in the kitchen, on your private lanai, swimming in the ocean, at the ocean-front pool, or relaxing in the hot tub!

At the Mahana you will experience an upscale boutique resort atmosphere on Ka'anapali's scenic North Beach, yet the quiet surroundings provide uncommon privacy. Breathtaking Pacific Ocean views, including the beautiful islands of Lanai'i to the south and Molokai'i to the north, seem to meet you at your living room floor to ceiling window. Each morning will start with this wondrous view as you gaze out your bedroom ceiling to floor window. From the lanai, you can enjoy many tropical sights and sounds as you enjoy your morning coffee or your sunset-watching libation. These glorious views are also your backdrop while enjoying the pool, and the pool area BBQ grills. Miles of open beach beckon you to snorkel among the pristine coral reefs, take a walk (or run!), or just lay back and soak up the sun – be sure to have the sunscreen handy! Shopping and dining are nearby, and the famous Whalers Village, with its eclectic blend of boutiques and memorabilia shops - there's even a whaler's museum - is just a short drive or walk away. With the Mahana's central location, golfers will enjoy the closeness to Kapalua and Ka'anapali's golf courses.

The restaurant 'Duke's Beach Grill' is just next door - a few minutes walking distance - serving breakfast, lunch and dinner with ocean front views! Or, you can take a short drive into historic Lahaina town for sightseeing - on land or sea - for restaurants that will satisfy a great number of tastes, and a selection of shops that will help you find that great reminder of your wonderful Maui vacation.

A boardwalk starts just outside the Mahana, and ends at the Hyatt Regency – about 3 miles away. It goes through Whalers Village in the heart of Ka'anapali. On this walkway, there are parks, water activity rental kiosks, and restaurants, so driving isn't a necessity for a myriad of activities.

About Judith Philipps

We came for a one-time Hawaiian vacation, fell in love with Maui and The Mahana, and decided to make it a permanent part of our lives! We call Cody, WY home, with all its beautiful mountain scenery and Yellowstone Park just an hour away, but the view of the Pacific from the comforts of our own chairs keeps calling us back! We love to travel, but a part of our winters will be spent in this wonderful condo on this most beautiful spot of Maui! We hope that you will love the experience, and deem it a delight to return to again and again!

Judith Philipps purchased this condo in 2010

Why Judith Philipps chose Lahaina

Maui has been voted “Best Island” by readers of Conde Nast Traveler for more than a dozen years. Maui has endless activities for vacationers, from fabulous beaches to fantastic dining and nightlife. Come see all that Maui has to offer!

Helicopter tours are an excellent way to take in the views of the whole island, including incredible waterfalls, sea cliffs and forests you would be hard pressed to view on foot. For those looking for closer views, you can take an ATV tour, or check out the Zip Lines at Kapalua or the West Maui mountains. Of course, there is the 'Road to Hana', but Hana is not the real objective. The road curves, the waterfalls, the incredible views of the ocean, the many bays (Nuaailua Bay at Keanae and Aunty Sandy's banana bread), or Waianapanapa State Park with its beautiful black sand beach are the main attractions. If you’re curious about what goes on above and/or under the waves, snorkeling or scuba tours are a great way to view the incredible variety of life that lives under the surface of the ocean. If you don’t want to get wet, there’s even a submarine that can take you into the deep while you view its mysteries from the comfort of a dry cabin. Of course, there is always a sunset cruise around the island for a very memorable evening! But the perfect ending to any day on Maui can be found right on your own private lanai - your 'Home-Away-From-Home", where you can kick off your shoes, and still see and hear the ocean! A Tropical Delight!

What makes this condo unique

The Mahana is unique in the fact that it is within feet of a beach, and has private lanais looking directly at the beach and the Pacific Ocean. Located on the northwest side of the island, it is at the north end of the wonderful Ka'anapali Beach. That means that all of the benefits of Ka'anapali Beach are within walking distance - great snorkeling, the Boardwalk, restaurants, and Whaler's Village - to name a few - but you are in a quieter, more relaxed setting. The Mahana is not far from Lahaina. Once the capital of the Hawaiian Kingdom in the early nineteenth century, Lahaina was also a historic whaling village during the whaling boom of the mid-1800’s. Today, the city blends its rich history with today's many modern activities creating a wonderful tropical paradise.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Aloha Judith,

Thank you so much for sharing your lovely condo with us. From the moment that we walked in I knew that we had picked the perfect place to celebrate our 25 year wedding anniversary. The view from your lanai is absolutely stunning. Your condo provided everything that we needed to be comfortable and we felt at home away from home. The Mahana grounds are very nicely maintained and it is very very quiet. We enjoyed listening to the ocean at night with the breeze. We prepared some great dinners on the BBQ grills by the pool. Our favorite spot was Kahekili Beach Park just down the path. The coral reef there is perfect for snorkeling and your beach chairs were very comfortable! Thank you for a relaxing vacation. When we return to Maui we will for sure return to Mahana 1117.

Had a great time here. Location was perfect and the interior was welcoming. It had everything we needed to enjoy our time here and more. Fully stocked kitchen, sandy beaches, pool, easy access, whale viewing and close to other attractions just to name a few. Would definitely stay here again!

Better than the pictures!!

  • 5 of 5

I had a great experience at the this condo. It was very clean and a great size. Having a full kitchen and laundry machines in the unit were a huge benefit on my trip. The best part of the condo was the balcony; it had beautiful views of the surrounding islands, the sunset, and the whales (I went in January)!

Owner's Response: Thanks, Adam, for your kind words about Mahana 1117! I absolutely agree with you about the balcony (lanai). My husband and I have some wonderful times out there watching whales, turtles and life in general. There are many mornings it is hard to put down the coffee and head out in other directions! Having a kitchen for some meal preparations, and not having to head to an out-of-unit-laundry is another super plus. Mahalo nui loa, Judith

Perfect views, this is as close to a cruise ship view as I will ever experience .

  • 5 of 5

We work from home, I didn’t TOTALLY get away from numbers and work , but I came close. It is so nice to get back in touch with nature. I have never seen whales, so we booked this trip for ou celebration of our 7th wedding anniversary, and so we could celebrate one more time with just us and our daughter, she will be a sophomore next year at Texas A&M, to watch all of us joke and giggle and act like kids again, meant so much to me. I have had a fascination for whales since I was 16, so you could say I squeaked like a school girl when I seen my first ones from the balcony. It just got better from there, we took a pacific whale foundation cocktail cruise on New Year’s Day , and seen them from a distance. On January 3rd we took trilogy’s whale tour at 1:30, and all I can say is WOW. We had 2 huge breeches i almost fell out of my seat they were so close. We could not have picked a better place to stay , this condo is so homey and comfortable I could stay longer. The owner and Leanna are such kind accommodating people I can only hope to return for another wedding anniversary .We are going to Hana tomorrow and for a whale rafting tour on Sunday, there’s so many things to do here I could find something new on every return. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home away from home TC Fuller

Owner's Response: Mahalo nui loa for all your kind words! I am glad that you felt at home in our condo. We want it to be a tropical paradise that you are happy to spend the day in or come home to after a day of exploring the rest of Maui. We also are happy that Leanna, our manager, helped in any way she could. She, her team, and I want you to have a memorable time at Mahana 1117, as well as on Maui. The whales truly are magnificent creatures, and the fact that you saw 2 breaches on one trip is absolutely amazing. Whale season can be as early as mid-November, and as late as mid-April. Sitting on the lanai also is a great place to see the whales, and it sounds like you did. It is also a great place to see much of the ocean's wildlife, like turtles, dolphins and at times monk seals. Again, mahalo, and I hope to hear from you again. - Judith

Stunning views - Gorgeous Condo

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Mahana 1117 in DEC 2017.

The views are stunning and hit you as soon as you walk in the front door.

The condo is beautiful and has everything we required to make our stay extremely pleasant.

We left the sliding doors open most of the time so that we could hear the sounds of the crashing ocean waves - Living in AB Canada we do not get to hear the ocean very often and just love it when we do!

The property manager was in touch the day we left and we gave him some feedback regarding a couple of housekeeping issues that need to be looked at.

We would love to stay in Mahana 1117 on our next trip to Maui Hawaii as we do hope to return one day!!

Thank you

Owner's Response: Mahalo! The sound of the ocean at any time is amazing, invigorating, and at times, powerful; but at night, can be the most soothing of sounds as it lulls you to sleep. Because the condo is on the 11th floor, the 2 large lanai doors can be safely left open - while you are there - all night, and you can enjoy those sounds. Of course, during a storm, it would be wise to keep them shut! Hopefully, you will be able to come and hear those sounds again. Mahalo nui loa! Judith
