Overview

About the property

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 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 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 Maui

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 should I say the bank owns two units). Our first purchase was in 2011 of a two bedroom home 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 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!

Fabulous condo

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 5 nights in this condo, our first time at Maui. The condo is better than it looks on the photos. It is right on the beach, very quiet, you can sleep to the sound of the waves, something I got used to. It is also conveniently located (5 minute walk) from grocery stores, Subway and snorkel gear rentals. My son, 10 years, could not get away from the beach, he absolutely loved it. There is also a pool right by the condo.

Heather (owner) is absolutely meticulous in making the visitors feel at home. She had instructions (20 page file) from where to rent the car to right down to what to wear for the different places she had recommended to see. We ended going to Hana, watching sunset at Halekala, Snorkeling at Molokini Island, hiking down to the Nakalele blowhole, and the amazing feast at lele. It was an amazing vacation, definitely will be back in future to stay in the same condo.

Whale of a view!

  • 5 of 5

This is my second time here and it was even better than the first. The view of the ocean is wonderful and I stopped counting the number of whales we saw from our lanai after the second day. This unit is fully equipped from the kitchen to the bathroom with high quality furniture, bed linens and bath towels. The owners have been thoughtful enough to leave beach towels, chairs, boogie boards and a cooler. The location is central to many of the best beaches, restaurants and shopping areas. There is also a grocery store and several restaurants within walking distance. The concierge service was excellent, setting up whale watching tours, snorkeling, shows, and a sunset dinner cruise. We will continue to return every chance we get.

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year staying in Heather's condo and we have enjoyed it immensely. The unit has been great condition when we arrived and is comfortable in every way. We enjoy being on the ground floor with easy access to the beach and the 40 minute walk along the beach to Black Rock. We have booked our stay for next year, with Heather, and we are already looking forward to our return.

Breathtaking!

  • 5 of 5

The location is incredible. We spent every morning watching humpback whales from the patio. We played some spectacular golf courses. Kaanapali Royal is only 5 minutes away, and Kapalua is just 10 minutes. Lots of people talk about the "Drive to Hana". Personally, we prefer the views and the drive around the northwest side of Maui, and Mahana is a perfect starting point. All the shops and restaurants of Lahaina are only 10 minutes away (we highly recommend the Paia Fish Market for quick, inexpensive, very tasty meal).

The very clean condo is well equipped for both everyday living and fun outings. From the boogie boards to use on the beach, which is literally 40-50 ft from the patio, to the cooler you can fill with drinks and lunch for a beachfront picnic. The bed is extremely comfortable. Eating out in Maui is a bit on the expensive side, so having the fully equipped kitchen is a huge plus. The washer/dryer in the unit was super helpful since you always seem to go through more clothes than you planned on with all the beach play and hikes nearby. Free parking right outside the door made it easy to get golf clubs and luggage to/from the car.

Heather was so accommodating and helpful. She seemed to sincerely care about ensuring we had a great time on our trip and wanted to be sure the condo was perfect for us. She was a joy to work with.

Great location, very clean, well stocked kitchen!

  • 5 of 5

Very happy with our stay overall. We've tried many different VRBO's and this is a top one. Love Maui and this vicinity in particular. Felt safe and comfortable on the ground floor and loved the easy outdoor access. Only suggestion would be a light on the lanai.
