About Linda Waite
Aloha! We are John and Linda Waite and Kathy Roberts, proud owners of this outstanding 1 bedroom, 1 bath vacation property at The Mahana in Maui, Hawaii. Linda's first visit to Hawaii at the age of 5 was the beginning of her lifelong love affair with the Hawaiian islands and her desire (shared by husband John and sister Kathy) for a piece of paradise. After numerous Maui vacations, staying at various resorts across the island, our decision to purchase at The Mahana was realized in 2000. We vacation in our home at The Mahana throughout the year to ensure it continues to meet our high expectations. We strive to make our vacation home the best of the best at this first rate property by continually upgrading and improving it with each visit. From the moment you step through the front door, we believe you will know your decision to choose our home was absolutely the right one! Mahalo!
Linda Waite purchased this Condo in 2000
Why Linda Waite chose Kaanapali
After years of visiting Maui and staying primarily at resort hotels, sisters Linda and Kathy knew after seeing the beachfront Mahana it was something very special. Seeing The Mahana's simple and easy access to the quiet beach, absolutely glorious views, immaculately maintained grounds, large pool with relaxing lounge chairs and sounds of the surf in the background, made their decision an easy one. When the opportunity presented itself soon after in the year 2000, they bought unit 1204 sight unseen. To this day, the thrill of seeing that million dollar view as you step inside never gets old. Still just as amazing now as the first time!

Vrbo Bear Stay review
Our Second Visit, and Hope for a Third!
We stayed here 5 years ago, for our 40th anniversary, and were lucky enough to spend our 45th here this year! If the good LORD allows, we will spend our 50th here! There is nothing not to love about this condo. Beautiful sunsets nightly, and the best view of the ocean and its wildlife every day. Not to mention the perfect weather! We love it, I think if you are lucky enough to spend time here you will too!
The Mahana speaks for itself. I think that it is one of the best condo locations on Maui. This condo was lovely, every thing was clean and a great spot for our trip.
Fantastic stay at Mahana 1204. Wonderful hosts, wonderful condo. Everything you need and then some. Very clean and comfortable.
Comfortable in Paradise!!!!!
My husband and I chose Mahana Unit 1204 to be our home base during our week long celebration of our 25th wedding anniversary and we were not disappointed. The unit was clean and comfortable and felt like the comforts of home. The separate Kitchen, living room, bathroom were a plus and didn't make us feel like we were in a hotel. We chose this unit because of those features, its direct beachfront access and quiet resort vibe. However, we did enjoy walking a short distance to enjoy the restaurants located in the resorts along the boardwalk. If the hustle and bustle of resort life is your vibe, then go for it. Our preference was direct ocean view without looking at the resort amenities and people while feeling like at home.. It was so quiet and quite romantic. The views from the lanai were BEAUTIFUL!!! Each night presented a different show and never disappointed. During our visit we had planned excursions and therefore didn't have time to use the pool, hot tub or bbq pits, so I have nothing to report there other than they looked clean and to be in excellent shape.
Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful unit. I am hoping that we have the chance to go back to celebrate another anniversary AND we are not waiting another 25 years.
Great property with best view in Maui.
Many of Maui's finest hotels, resorts and condo rentals are located along the 3-mile stretch of Kaanapali Beach. Beginning at The Mahana is a paved and lit oceanfront walkway for strolls to Whalers Village and beyond. An easy walk allowing one to explore the area, take in the views or dine at neighboring restaurants such as Duke's which is located next to The Mahana.
Two 18-hole championship courses are nearby: The Royal Kaanapali and the Kaanapali Kai. Many others are scattered throughout the island.
If a luau is on your list of things to do while in Maui, there are many to choose from: Drums of the Pacific Luau (at the Hyatt), the Marriot Luau, the Sheraton Maui Hotel's Sunset Luau and the Royal Lahaina Luau.
Whaler's Village has a nice selection of boutiques and galleries if you like to shop. There is also the quaint historic whaling town of Lahaina about 6 miles away. Here you can enjoy colorful Front Street with its many shops and restaurants. You can view the huge Courthouse Square banyan tree, visit the Baldwin Home and Museum or take an ocean excursion from their harbor.
Of course, there are also beach activities such as sunbathing and snorkelling. Equipment is available to rent across the street from The Mahana.
