MAHANA 1 BEDROOM - OCEANFRONT - 20 STEPS TO OCEAN SAND!
This beautiful, fresh condo has stunning ocean front views from the living space and bedroom. The large patio area is a wonderful extension of space for meals or just to be in the shade and read! With the lawn right out your door, trips to the pool, hot tub and beach are a cinch.....And did I mention the ocean water is just 30 feet away! The sound of the waves will lull you to sleep and the whales will entertain from December through April.
The Mahana is an unusual property featuring all direct ocean view units which attracts owners and visitors who enjoy quiet oceanfront living close to the activity in Kaanapali and historic Lahaina.
We have done everything we can think of to make this a luxurious, relaxing and fun vacation spot for 1 to 4 people. From the padded upholstered headboard, and California king Tempur- Pedic bed with hotel luxury linens to the boogie boards and tennis racquets. The new sleeper sofa has a nice thick mattress and the tasteful decor is world class.
We have provided beach chairs, beach towels and even a cooler to make traveling less hectic and much easier to pack!
The kitchen is fully stocked with everything imaginable - cooking ware and Tupperware. You may even discover the all spices you need to make your favorite recipe in the cupboard!
Amenities include free WiFi, tennis courts, swimming pool, hot tub, shuffleboard and a barbecue area.
The shopping complex across the street has a wonderful grocery store, subway, pizza, coffee.....Even a place for manicures! Only a few blocks north and you will find the Farmers Market, Snorkel Bobs, the Fish Market and many apparel and souvenir shops.
This property is very unique on Maui - although there are many beautiful places to stay, ocean front properties like this are hard to find!

About Heather Hansen
My husband, son and I live on the east side of the Cascades in the beautiful state of Washington, where we own and operate a sports medicine clinic.
Heather Hansen purchased this Condo in 2013
Why Heather Hansen chose Kaanapali
After many years of travel and discovery on Maui - we got hooked on the Mahana. Living in the Northwest we are very spoiled with the beautiful landscape of mountains, lakes and rivers.....so needless to say, we don't like to settle for a 'partial ocean view'! I went for a walk one day on the ocean shore of West Maui and happened by the Mahana. I couldn't get over how big the windows were, and how close the buildings were to the beach. The next time we returned to the island we stayed at the Mahana and never turned back. As Maui vacationers prior to our purchase, we had experienced the island the same way many of our guests would. The Kaanapali area offers a tremendous variety of beaches, proximity to Lahaina, the famous boardwalk, the most amazing sunsets and glorious views of Lanai and Molokai. There are many reasons why we chose the Mahana. The property offered the type of relaxed feel - not one of a big resort where you have to set your alarm to get your spot by the pool! It is close enough to the world class dining the resort areas offer, but far enough away that you have choices. Subway, pizza, fish market, sushi, farmers market and groceries that are frequented by locals as often as tourists. But the VIEW from the condo is the #1 reason! Imagine watching the whales from your living room or patio while you sip your morning coffee, or evening pina coloda. I'm not kidding!! This is what sealed the deal. There are not many properties on Maui with this kind of view. No 'partial ocean views'. You will find only 100%, straight on, in your face OCEAN!! We now own two units (or I should say the bank owns two units). Our first purchase was in 2011 of a two bedroom unit on the 9th floor (VRBO # 376315). Followed by the purchase of this unit on the bottom floor - both the magnificent views from the 9th floor corner and the wonderful access a bottom floor unit grants.
What makes this Condo unique
Our family loves to be comfortable. And we love beautiful things. When you are spending hard earned money for a vacation, you should expect the place you are staying to be cared for and designed well. How do you FEEL when you are in a space? Is the decoration tasteful? Are the colors soothing? Is it clean? Are the pillows and sheets luxurious? Is the bed spread 100 years old? YUCK!!! We pay attention to these things and take your trust in us very seriously. When you stay in our Maui home, you will be provided with everything you can think of to make your vacation a special one. From provided beach chairs and towels to spices in the cupboard!

Beautiful Place and Great Location
Wonderful vacation property and great location. Snorkeling right in front of property even saw sea turtles. Short walk to a great market. Heather was a great host.
Exceptional location in beautiful oceanfront condo
I loved this beautiful condo with unbelievable location. Very quiet and private yet right on the ocean where you hear each wave, stocked with almost everything you would need. Walking distance to lovely beach and restaurants. I didn’t use my car. Can’t wait to return.
The perfect condo in every way - the location, the view, the accommodations! We woke up to a view of the ocean and the sound of waves every morning! Heather (owner) was so gracious! We will definitely be back to this beautiful resort and this perfect condo!
Nice 1st floor condo. We love the Mahana location.
Beautiful view, steps to the ocean
Highly recommend this condo and complex. The condo had all the amenities we needed for a week of relaxation and we loved being on the first floor as you could sit out on the lanai or move to the chairs in the grass a few feet away. The view from the condo is amazing! The pool was great, never crowded and the location of the complex is just a few minutes drive from Front Street.
What a beautiful condo! The secluded lanai has an incredible view of the ocean, Molokai, and Lanai. The beds were comfortable (including the pull-out bed in the sofa!) and the condo was nicely decorated and well-stocked. Heather was incredibly easy to work with and was quite attentive to any questions or requests. A great experience! Would definitely rent again!
