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 at the Mahana and on the island - now newly remodeled it is also one of the nicest places to stay as well! This condo 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 Italian floor tile and new designer area carpets that feel like heaven on your feet in the living room and both bedrooms. The living room furniture has also been updated with ultra comfy Tommy Bahama swivel window chairs and sofa - you wont be able to resist taking a nap on this luxurious couch while you listen to the waves crash on the beach below!

Enjoy the sunset each evening on the private lanai - no annoying metal bars to peek through.....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 Lahaina

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!

Excellent VRBO, Stunning View

  • 5 of 5

Well documented in other reviews but the views from this condo are simply stunning – I’d note that they are also unique to other locations. The Mahana benefits from literally being on top of the ocean (vs. set back like nearly all others) and this condo is nine floors up. Result is gorgeous views of the islands across the channel, sunsets, beautiful and endless ocean and if you are there right time of year the whales literally dancing in front of you. Almost daily they’d be doing flips etc. its pretty amazing to see. I’d add that the corner unit also provides what I think is a really cool view down the entire beach with trees etc. The boardwalk effectively starts in front of you so you get to see down the whole beach.

Condo is very well appointed, furnished etc. Everything you could ever need or ask for. In particular an exceptionally well stocked beach closet (snorkel gear, all types of chairs, etc.) makes beach trips a joy. Beautiful kitchen, incredibly comfortable beds, nice shower. Everything well stocked and ready to roll. There was thought put in to have everything here you might need – was impressive. Kudos and mahalo.

Location of the Mahana I would suggest is ideal if you are coming to Kaanapali. It is walking distance to several keys – Times Grocery (best in area), Dukes Restaurant, boardwalk, and the fish market (best Ahi sandwich I have ever had). But importantly (for us anyway) it’s a chill place so not the noise, waits for grill etc. that you may get at other places in this area that have too many rooms compared to resources they offer. I loved that you can get a pool chair easily, never feel like there is mess all around in common areas etc. and just relax in a sweet local. Note the pool is normal sized and not a water park – go next door for that.

Net is our experience met and even exceeded the high expectations set from all the reviews. Worth the splurge and hard to imagine that it disappoints.

WOW! Our HIGH expectations, EXCEEDED!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently experienced a spectacular twelve night stay at #919 at the Mahana. Having stayed at the Mahana about three years ago for a week, we were familiar with the area and knew we loved the location due to it's oceanfront units, easy walking distance to shopping, restaurants, bars, urgent care, (unfortunately had to try that out too), and fun! Not knowing when we would return, I "shopped" for units to rent for another visit and ran across this corner unit and put it on my "wish list". We felt so lucky that it was available when our grandson announced he was going to be married on Maui in December.

The photos online are exactly as the unit appears, though I would have to say that they probably don't quite due it justice. The views are absolutely amazing, not to mention all the comforts and conveniences provided. One of my favorites was the full size, awesome, makeup mirror. I had purchased a new travel one to bring along.....not necessary! Though there was just the two of us, it was great to have the two full bathrooms.

My favorite spot was by the breakfast bar each morning, drinking my coffee and watching all the people on the Boardwalk as well as the scenic ocean shores.

From start to finish, and everywhere in between, Heather was awesome! The booking was so simple and easy as was the payment process and the refund of the damage deposit. We had a small issue due to a power outage and she was immediately available to help us resolve the problem and again went above and beyond our expectations.

If you are thinking about this unit, don' t think too long. The downside to this unit is that you will be forever "spoiled" once you have experienced the magic of #919!

Aloha........Jay and Deb

Outstanding Unit

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed in this unit, and the first time since the beautiful kitchen remodel. The unit is absolutely gorgeous and fully stocked with whatever you might need. The views from the unit are breathtaking, and the location is perfect. On top of all that, Heather is great to work with. Would definitely stay there again.

Tremendous 9th floor condo views of the ocean

  • 5 of 5

In addition to the views, this is a modern well equipped Maui condo. Complete with beach chairs , towels, masks and snorkels ect

Grocery store is a short walk away and so are restaurants

The on site Expedia rep can really help with activities and in most cases obtain a discount

11 run Zip line is very good and close by.

I highly recommend this condo and will plan on returning soon.

Heather is quite responsive on any questions
