Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Our spacious corner unit has one of the most outstanding views on the island - and now newly remodeled is one of the nicest places to stay as well! The unit is on the south west corner of the building which means you will not only have the gorgeous west ocean views but the unobstructed south facing ocean shore views as well. Standing at the window, you feel as though you are floating above the ocean with views of Black Rock and Lanai to the South and Molokai to the North. Watch the whales from December through April right from the living room chairs or the lanai.

Enjoy the views in complete comfort and luxury in this newly remodeled two bedroom, two bath unit, which features a brand new full kitchen, air conditioning, dishwasher, microwave, flat screen televisions in the living room and both bedrooms, wireless internet and a washer/dryer. The remodel has been years in the planning and was worth every minute and dollar spent! The backsplash tile is a hand drawn and carved Hawaiian landscape - sun, waves and flowers. The counter tops are black honed absolute granite and the cabinets have a luxurious, tasteful tropical feel. All appliances are top of the line, including the SubZero refrigerator. The whole unit has a sand colored floor tile and new designer area carpets that feel like heaven on your feet in the living room and both bedrooms.

Enjoy the sunset each evening on the private lanai. The resort also has a heated pool, hot tub, a tennis court, and shuffleboard. There are tennis racquets and balls in the condo for our guests to use, along with beach chairs, beach towels and coolers. Amazing soft sand for walks and beautiful coral reef for incredible snorkeling are right outside the door.

Duke's Beach House Restaurant is an easy walk (you can see Duke's from the south-facing windows in the condo), as well as many other resort and local restaurants.

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 2011

Why Heather Hansen chose Maui

Coming from an area that offers hiking, biking, water skiing, snow skiing - and jaw dropping beauty, we were a bit picky about where to spend our vacation time. After numerous trips to Maui, we were hooked and couldn't imagine spending time anywhere else.

On one of our vacations, I went for a walk 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 we stayed there 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 the 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 wonderful dining the resort areas offer, but far enough away that you have choices. Subway, locally owned fish tacos, 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 lanai 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. Our first purchase was in 2011 of this two bedroom home on the 9th floor. And most recently the purchase of a 1 bedroom on the bottom floor (listing #3579847) - 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? 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!

Magical View!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely love this view - the direct, close up view of the ocean.....made whale watching so much fun! Right from the comfortable chairs that swivel right up to the window. But also the view of the beach coastline out the south windows.

The unit itself is decorated simply, comfortably and with Hawaiian touches that made our stay extra special. The bed is probably the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in!

The parking area is very quick to get in and out - so trips to the grocery, fish market, and jaunts to the fabulous shopping at Whalers Village and Lahaina's Front street were easy.

The boardwalk begins right at the property line and makes for a great alternate to the beach when tired feet need a break from walking on the sand.

We especially love the private quiet feel of the property. We will definitely be back!

an absolutely stunning place to escape to!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is my third time staying in this unit which is just perfect for a get away! The views are so stunning that I find it quite hard to tear myself away from sitting by the ocean front window all day long. (This year has been a fabulous year for whale watching and you have a front row seat here.) The unit is spotless and the owners have recently finished an extensive kitchen renovation which is quite nice!! The owner, Heather, is a delight to work with and if you do have any issues, deals with them immediately! I am already scheduled for next year! You truly can't go wrong with staying here,

Beautiful

  • 4 of 5

We have been coming to the Mahana for many years.

This unit is the most beautiful unit we have seen. The remodel is truly supurb.

Upon arrival we were informed that the washer was not functioning. A repairman visited on the third day of our stay and declared the washer was repaired. The next day, we tried the washer and it malfunctioned. We were informed that because of the holiday, no repairman was available. So we went the entire week without a washer. The owner volunteered to pay for a laundramat but the thought of packing up and driving to a laundramat was not acceptable.

The headboard of the blinds collapsed when we tried to pull the blinds. They were quickly repaired.

I would stay in this unit again if we were sure there would be no interuptions to repair malfunctioning items.

Owner's Response: We believe also that our unit is the most beautiful! The most desirable South and West facing location, a thoughtful remodel and gorgeous furnishings assure no disappointment. The blind valance was an easy fix that took place within the hour. Im glad it did not inconvenience our guests or interfere with the amazing ocean front views! As with any fully equipped home, appliances can sometimes act up. Although every effort was made to request a follow up service, the New Years Day holiday created delay. The cleaning staff had no trouble with the washing machine upon check out, and a second technician service verified it was operational and needed no additional repair. A 5 minute drive to the dry cleaners on the way to Lahaina would have provided clean, and folded clothing. A great service I think most would gladly take advantage of. We take pride in our customer service and do everything we can to take care of our guests. :)

Excellent condo with amazing views.

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at The Mahana many times. This condo is by far my favorite to stay in. It is a corner unit so it has views on three sides. The front view is the ocean only feet away. The side view looks south toward Lahina. The back view is of the mountains. It is on the 9th floor, so you are above the palm trees. Saw whales, dolphins, and sea turtles from the lanai. Just got back and wish I could live there. Will go again.
