Overview

Maui Condo Rental Photos and Description

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

From our ocean front condo on the 11th of 12 floors, and has floor to ceiling, wall to wall windows in the living room and in the bedroom, you can begin your Maui experience. The lanai is fully fronted on the Pacific Ocean with access from both the living area and the bedroom through large sliding-glass lanai doors.

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, 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 an hour away. But the ocean keeps calling us back! We love to travel, but a part of our winters will (for as long as we are able)be spent in this wonderful condo on this most beautiful spot of Maui!

Judith Philipps purchased this condo in 2010

Why Judith Philipps chose Maui

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.

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.

What makes this condo unique

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.

Another great trip in Maui!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Mahana was very special. We were greeted with cookies and music upon our arrival. Judith was so pleasant and helpful. We have stayed at the Mahana before, but this time it was exceptional. Judith thought of everything. She has everything you need to have a great time on the beach and the kitchen is completely stocked. The hideaway bed is suprisingly comfortable and the master bed was dreamy. One afternoon the resort was servicing the air conditioners and Judith was quick to have her manager deliver an osculating fan. She was also super accommodating to allow us a late check out. I simply can't say enough about Judith's hospitality and the view is priceless. You won't find a better view anywhere else on Kaanapali beach. My only regret is we did not stay longer so when you book this property plan a long stay. Thank you again Judith and managers. We will be back!!!

Owner's Response: Mahalo, Travelbug, for all your kind words! I do my best to accommodate my guests so they may have many good memories about staying in 1117. After a hard day of sightseeing, beach walking or just swimming in the pool or ocean, it is necessary to find comfort in a bed that can revitalize one's self for another day of being in paradise! I look forward to hearing from you when you next plan your return to Maui. Mahalo nui loa - Judith

Pictures do not do view justice.

  • 5 of 5

Very well equipped and clean unit. Would recommend and plan to stay again. Only complaint would be the air condition unit was very noisy. Had to turn the television way up to hear it over the air condition. The pictures do not do the view justices. Great location.

Total Paradise!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was the most equipped and beautiful condo we have ever stayed in. We were greeted with flowers and cookies when we arrived. It surpassed our expectations for sure!! Better than the pictures. The waves put us to sleep each night - you are just that close. The best part was the morning walks on the beach and coffee on the lanai each morning - what a way to start your day in paradise. The location is perfect - close to everything. The pool area is nice, we enjoyed it each evening and met some really nice people. The grill area was very clean as the property maintenance people actually steam clean the grills each morning. This unit has everything you could ever need or your visit, from grilling utensils to beach chairs. Check in is a breeze. Felt truly blessed to stay in Unit 1117, didn't want to leave and hope to return. Make sure you check out Mama's Fish House - incredible food, the Royal Lahania Lula and for the most relaxing ever massage - go to the Black Rock Spa. What a wonderful 39th anniversary trip!!! One we will relive over and over again. Thanks, Judith for sharing your home!

Owner's Response: Aloha Sue, I am so very happy that your Maui trip to celebrate your 39th anniversary was all you had hoped for and more! I totally agree that there really isn't a better way to start your day in paradise than with a beach walk and coffee on the lanai! The ocean is a source of relaxation, and yet, a great source of vibrancy! I'm so happy you enjoyed Mama's Fish House - it is our favorite! Thank you for all your kind words, and I do hope to hear from you the next time you plan to visit the wonderful island of Maui! Mahalo nui loa! Judith

Gorgeous!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay. The condo is beautiful and clean and the location is phenomenal. The ocean lulled us to sleep everynight. We did lose power due to an accident for a day but we survived...lol We would love to stay here on return to maui. My family will be coming and want to get a room at the mahana as well.

If you can recommend an additional condo, we would be greatful.

Owner's Response: Mahalo for your kind words, and I'm so glad that your time here was enjoyable, enjoyable enough to want to bring your whole family back. When you have decided to return, let me know and I will try to help with finding other Mahana units for your family. Aloha, Judith

Paradise Pure and Simple!

  • 5 of 5

We were blessed to stay 14 days in this beautiful, squeaky clean condo! I did not want to leave. All of the furnishing were lovely, and the king size bed was super comfortable. The condo had everything you could possibly want or need. I read three books from your collection, while sipping wine and sitting on the lanai listening to the waves roar. The view from the floor to ceiling window and the lanai were indescribable! It was flat out magnificent. We enjoyed watching the whales breech and saw some dolphins and turtles. The beach is a beautiful one that you can walk on for a long way. We enjoyed strolling the boardwalk after dark. Duke's which is next door, was a wonderful place to eat.

We were very pleased with how easy check in was. All you do is put your name in and your parking pass prints. Super easy and efficient! The staff at the hotel were very friendly, but not intrusive. The pool area and grill area were very nice and clean.

Leanna was a pleasure to work with.

We have been to Hawaii five times. This was the best accommodation we have stayed in. If were are ever able to make it back again, we will definitely stay in this condo!

Thank you for sharing your blessings with us!

Owner's Response: Aloha Jill and Gary! Thank you so much for your kind words. We are absolutely thrilled you were so pleased with your stay at our condo! We strive to maintain the highest standards for our guests, and we are delighted to know that they met yours. Of course, the beautiful surroundings help in that regard, too :) We couldn't agree more with the comments you left about Maui, and we too feel so blessed when we are able to enjoy the wonderful surroundings and wildlife. When you make plans to visit Maui again, I hope that you will remember 1117, and get in touch with me! Mahalo nui loa - Judith

You can walk along the beach for about a mile without leaving the sand! The Beach Boardwalk is minutes from the condo, and goes for about 3 miles (along the beach and through a few resorts). On the Boardwalk, you'll find restaurants (Duke's Beach House is the closest, and there are a few in Whaler's Village - Leilani's and Hula Grill, to name a couple), rental kiosks (paddle boards, kayaks, surfboards, snorkels, etc.), as well as art kiosks, clothing kiosks. There also is Whaler's Village which has many shops to peak your interest.
