About Quyen Pham
Aloha, We live in Southern California with our two school-age sons. We own a few long-term rental properties in California but this is our first vacation rental property. We firmly believe in the "pride of ownership". So all our properties were remodeled as if we were going to live in them. We feel that if we make our properties look nice; they will attract tenants who care about how their homes look. They are the people who will take care of the place during their stay. Therefore, we don't see this unit as a vacation rental. We see it as our home away from home, and we would like to share it with people who will enjoy (and take good care of) this place as much as we do. Check out our website QuyentessentialVacationRentals (dot com) for more information about our units -Quyen & Michael
Quyen Pham purchased this Condo in 2017
Why Quyen Pham chose Lahaina
At the time of our purchase, this unit has been neglected for many years and needs major upgrading. My wife loves to remodel and redecorate houses, so she sees the potential of this place. We decided that we will make a major investment to turn this place into a home, even though it will not make financial sense for a vacation rental business. We have spent countless hours researching on the internet (agonizing over every little design decision). We also stayed in the condo for a week before finalizing on the remodeling and the furnishing. We are looking forward to seeing the final results of our dream home. We hope that you are going to be excited about staying here and will be extremely satisfied when you leave. We look forward to building memories as we return to visit this place year after year. We hope that you will build your own memories as you enjoy our place.
What makes this Condo unique
Upon entering our premium one-bedroom condo, you will be greeted by our tranquil beachfront view. Palm trees from the beach will provide protection from the afternoon sun. You will enjoy your morning coffee or a glass of wine while watching the spectacular sunset from our lanai furnished with Janus' Viola outdoor dining set. Columbia cabinetry (environmentally friendly) and beautiful white quartz countertops, our kitchen provides everything you need to cook for and serve four people (plus a couple of dinner guests). Our brand new FULL-SIZE washer and dryer will keep your clothes looking great after a day at the beach. You will be rewarded with a blissful night's sleep in our beautiful and comfortable king-size bed with luxurious linen and the gentle crashing of the waves on the beach. Our condo can accommodate an additional two guests with the queen-size sleeper in the living room. You will enjoy starting your day with a tastefully remodeled bathroom with dual-sink vanity (a rarity for a one-bath unit in our building).

It was exactly as we expected. We ended up staying indoors more than we wanted due to the pandemic and it was nice to have a comfortable place with a nice view and good wifi to pass the time. We enjoyed many whale shows from the balcony.
We had the most amazing stay here, Quyen has really gone above and beyond to provide everything you would ever need and such a beautifully decorated space. Great communication too, she made us feel very welcome.
The views from the condo are incredible! Expect to see many a rainbow. Sitting out on the lanai and watching the whales was my favorite. Falling asleep to the sound of the ocean is also a nice bonus!
The location is also close to everything, with a lot of stuff within walking distance. If you have a rental car the parking is really easy, plenty of spots and none are too far from the entrance.
Thank you Quyen, we can't wait to come back!
Perfect location for the perfect vacation!
We have stayed at 10+ condos in the Kaanapali area of Maui and none can compare to Mahana 317. Quyen and Michael have gone above and beyond to outfit their "home away from home" with everything you could ask for on a vacation paradise. From the moment you walk in, your breath is taken away by the amazing ocean front views. From sunrise to sunset - you could sit on the lanai all day and watch as the beauty of Hawaii soaks deep into your soul. There was not a day during our recent (January) visit that we didn't see honu (turtles) playing in the shore break, dolphins in the nearby waves or whales passing in the distance. Down on the beach below the condo - there is golden sand -- which is not always a given in Kaanapali: many have rocks, but not here! You can walk all the way to Black Rock on the beach or on the boardwalk from this condo as we did many times. The grocery store (Times Market) and food trucks are also within walking distance, as is Duke's restaurant.
The amenities inside the condo are also something to rival. From the awesome coffee maker with carafe and stocked spice cabinet, to the double-sinked bathroom and plush furniture, you can tell there has been a lot of attention to detail in this unit. And the beds... heaven. Super comfy and large -- if we didn't want to get out for the day to enjoy the island, we could have stayed in bed all day.
An added bonus were the beach toys (snorkel gear, beach towels, and beach cooler) that were available for our use during our stay. Not having to tote all of that gear from home left us a lot of room in our suitcases for Kauai coffee and Honolulu Cookies.
Mahalo Quyen and Michael! We LOVED your Mahana condo and can't wait to plan another trip there soon. Your condo will always be our #1 choice.
Jennifer, thank you for this thoughtful and kind review! We outfitted the condo as though we are able to be there everyday. I am so glad that how we set it up helped you enjoy your vacation and free up your suitcase for Honolulu cookies! Those made a great gifts! We often come home with a suitcase of cookies ourselves for gifts for family and friends especially around Christmas!

Better than home
The perfect experience from start to finish. The owners really care about their property and their guests. Every possible amenity was available. They have already anticipated all of your needs. Fantastic.
As working professionals, vacation time is so precious to us. When setting up our unit, we wanted guest to have best experience possible because they entrusted their precious vacation time with us. We wanted to be "better than home". I am so happy to hear that you enjoy your stay and felt that its "better than home".
This is our home away from home. We put much of our heart into this dream home. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
