About the property

Awesome 8th floor Corner 2 BR Condo on Kaanapali Beach

Enjoy spectacular, sweeping, unobstructed views of the Pacific from this spacious 1400 sq. ft. 8th floor two-bedroom, two-bath corner unit at the Mahana on Ka'anapali Beach - rated as one of the best beaches in the world.

Relax on the lanai or the circular sofa overlooking the ocean. Watch the sun set over the Pacific and the islands of Lanai and Molokai in front of you. And, Number 819 is a corner unit, enjoy the extra side view down the white sand beach towards Black Rock from the floor-to-ceiling wraparound windows. Only 20 yards from the beach, it's the ideal spot to see humpback whales, monk seals, or dolphins! You might even spot a sea turtle!

In the morning, swim in the Mahana's private oceanside pool, snorkel in the coral reef out front or stroll along the uncrowded sandy beach below you. In the evening, enjoy a few minutes in the spa under the stars and fall asleep to the sound of the waves lapping against the shore.

This serene, elegantly furnished unit has a king-sized bed with a wonderful new Tempur-Pedic mattress in the master bedroom and a very comfortable queen-sized teak wall bed with box springs in the guest bedroom. Separate A/C controls in the master bedroom and guest bedroom allow you to adjust the temperature for ultimate comfort.

The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need and more, even a spice rack, to prepare a perfect sunset meal to enjoy at the beautiful marble dining table or on your lanai.

Three cable TVs (all high end flat screen LCD TVs), broadband high speed satellite internet and wireless access, CD stereo with iPOD docking, and DVD players add to your entertainment.

The living room and master bedroom both open onto your own private lanai/balcony with a table and 4 chairs overlooking the Pacific. The 2nd bedroom has wonderful panoramic views of the majestic West Maui mountains.

Two newly remodeled separate vanity areas, offer privacy for guests. Luxury linens, an iron and ironing board, hair dryer, beach towels and a Bosch washer/dryer are all provided for your convenience. You will also enjoy our beautiful new travertine tiled walk-in showers with their unique mosaic insets.

This condo at the Mahana, rated one of the top hotels in Hawaii by Travel and Leisure, sits on a quiet stretch of one of the world’s most spectacular beaches!

Lahaina, once a whaling town, Whaler’s Village, fine and casual dining, shopping, art galleries, five world-class championship golf courses, tennis, scuba diving and snorkeling are all just steps or minutes away.

It's the perfect spot to bring your parents or your adult children for a family celebration or reunion, to house your wedding guests, or just to get away yourselves for a holiday in paradise! Consider booking this unit for just the two of you to take advantage of the corner views. And if you need more space, ask about our 8th floor one-bedroom condo right next door!

About Kathy

We both grew up by the sea, David in Ireland, Kathy in San Francisco and we always knew that however far away we moved from it, we would always come back. After we met in college, we traveled much of the world together, but it was Maui and the stretch of beach in front of the Mahana that captured our hearts. We first bought the condo next door to this one in 1977. Over the years, we returned to Maui and the Mahana for a month every summer. For our children, it was a second home. Now young adults, they still love coming back every chance they can. Once you have been to the Mahana, you’ll want to come back too!

Kathy purchased this condo in 2004

Why Kathy chose Lahaina

We fell in love with the Mahana in 1977. We were walking along the beach. The sun was setting between the islands of Lanai and Molokai. It was the most amazing sight! We turned around and saw Mahana. We knew right then and there that we had to buy one of these beachfront homes. For us it was the view and the view and the view! We bought our first Mahana condo (#818) then. We bought another condo (#708) in 2001 and this one (#819) from long-term residents in 2004.

What makes this condo unique

For us it’s a home away from home. In winter we love watching the whales, in summer it’s the dolphins and turtles. I love getting up to see the dawn coming up over the ocean. My husband is mesmerized by the stars. We all enjoy walking or jogging on the beach, swimming and snorkeling in the crystal clear blue water, exploring all the other nearby beaches, Kapalua Bay, Napili Bay, Fleming Beach, Honolua Bay. We also love going to the Farmers market for fresh papaya and mangos and finding local fish to grill back at the Mahana. It’s the majesty of the ocean and the mountains. It’s the trade winds and the friendly people. It’s something else, totally special that is just impossible to describe. You have to come to Maui and the Mahana and you will experience it yourself!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a most amazing week in this tropical paradise. The condo has everything we could possibly need. We will miss meals on the lanai, watching whales breach offshore, schools of dolphins parade by, and relaxed humans ambling down the beach below. We enjoyed snorkeling with turtles at Black Rock and just down the beach at Airport Park. A journey up the rugged northern tip of the island was filled with spectacular views, some nice hikes (the blowhole was impressive) and what is reportedly the best banana bread. We cooked in a lot, but highlights were two delicious meals at Mala and a fun lunch at Sea House in Napili. Thank you, Kathy and David, for sharing your comfortable and so well-equipped home with us. We hope to come back some day!

What can one say?! This was my 4th stay , so clearly i am prejudiced!

The Sheehans have made this amazing condo even better over the years. Its internal layout coudn't be more conducive to either family or

romantic getaways.. the 8th floor corner setting makes it seem as if one is hovering over the water facing due east as the Mahana is built so close to the waters edge ...but then the view down the Kaanapali

beach gives a completely different expansive setting.. No picture can truly do this view justice..the master bedroom leads out to the balcony, as does the living room -right on the water...and even with the height , you can be lulled to sleep by the sound of the waves...A/C is great however...And the view out of the back lovely bedroom gives you the sunrise over the mountains..Overall , i cannot imagine a more lovely way to enjoy Maui...

One has easy access to all of the great beaches and restaurants:in, Kapalua, Honolua, Napili, etc...There is a good "regular" market across the block , with a farmers market1/4 mile down the street with all of the fresh fruit one could want..

I can only hope to be be allowed many more opportunities to come back!

Very nice and Great View

  • 4 of 5

Condo in a very nice location with fabulous view, and it was very well stocked!! Had beach chairs, boogie boards, and plenty of towels and linens. It was also very clean. My only complaint was the low bed in the master bdrm. I guess I expected something a little nicer than a mattress on a box on the floor!

Owner's Response: I am so glad that you enjoyed the condo with its amazing ocean views! I was sorry though that you did not enjoy the low Zen-like bed. This type of bed with its high-end Tempur-Pedic mattress is very popular in Europe and Asia. We chose it because of its clean, modern look and the way it opens up the room and view but also for its comfort and back support, something my husband really appreciated after he had back surgery. We do hope that beyond this you have great memories of your time on Maui! Kathy
