About Kathy Roberts


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!


Kathy Roberts purchased this condo in 2000

Guestbook comments from the owner

We got back last night and it was a sad departure. I wasn't ready to leave... none of us were. I have to first say that your unit was absolutely wonderful. When we opened the front door and walked in... my husband's first words were "You've got to be kidding me!" That pretty much summed it all up... your home far exceeded our expectations. We had everything we could possibly need to enjoy this trip. Thank you so much for sharing your home with us. We are already thinking about going back next year... and staying at your condo! That's the only one we will rent from now on.

Maui never looked better than it does from this penthouse view!

VRBO Bear stayed here

Nov 5, 2017

This review could start and end with the amazing view from this penthouse condo in Maui…but it won’t because the rest of the rental was just as good! The condo is freshly updated with beautiful tile and granite features, appliances, and the furniture is comfy and great for lounging after a “tough” day at the beach, which by the way is steps away from the pool and hot tub. You can start your day having coffee on the lanai with views of two Hawaiian islands or end the day watching a colorful sunset. Next, the concierge can help you arrange snorkeling gear or activities before you head out for some beach time - lounging under the palm trees and rainbows. Get out and enjoy some of the great excursions on Maui, then be sure to grab a drink and retreat to the hot tub at the end of the day to take advantage of the island breeze while you watch the sun dip behind the islands. Head upstairs and enjoy a FULLY stocked kitchen with everything you need to whip up a gourmet meal. At the end of your day you can cool off with a rainfall shower in the renovated bathroom, then slip in to the very comfortable bed for a great night’s sleep while you listen to the waves crashing on the beach. The best part is waking up to do it all over again the next day!¬ This condo had it all, including the million dollar view. We had such an amazing vacation at the Mahana 1204 and can’t wait to go back. It books up far in advance so plan ahead for your Maui vacation!

Beautiful condo right on the beach, stunning views and sunsets every night.

  • 5 of 5

We could not have asked for a more beautiful and fully equipped condo, this one had everything! We stayed during whale season and saw whales all day long not to mention looking down at the surf to see turtles and fish! My husband loves to golf and it’s a short drive to Kapalua where he played many days. I love to sit by the ocean to read, relax and enjoy the view. The condo has everything needed if you choose to stay in to cook but if you want to go out there are many great restaurants that are close by. My personal favorites are “Honu” in Lahaina and “Sansei” in Kapalua. I highly recommend staying at this beautuful condo, you will not be disappointed.

Owner's Response: We're glad you had such wonderful time at our condo! Whale season is extra special when viewed from our top floor unit and especially fun to see the turtles so close to the beach. Thanks for staying with us!

Very nice!!

  • 5 of 5

Top floor. Superior unobstructed views. Whale watching right from your own lanai. The condo unit is exactly as shown. Very, very nice. Seriously, you see whales breaching all day, everyday. You are literally right next to the water. The kitchen is outfitted with everything you may need. I looked down to the beach from the lanai and saw three large turtles. Awesome. This condo made our trip. Relaxing and very quiet. Loved being on the top floor. Sliding glass doors open all day and enjoying the wonderful breeze. Just what we needed. Also, very easy walk to Duke's for tasty meals and drinks. We try to go to Maui once a year and I certainly will be staying here again in the future. We made a great choice. Mahalo.

Owner's Response: Whale season is a great time to stay at our condo. From our top-floor unit, it's amazing to see how many whales appear each year and to watch the baby whales learn how to breach and flop their fins - too cute!

Lovely place with views to die for

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a wonderful 10 day visit in December. The condo, while not huge, was really outstanding with upscale amenities/appliances/furniture and views that would be hard to beat anywhere in Maui. The location was great: just outside of Lahaina. The internet was surprisingly fast and while we didn’t watch much TV, it was great having HD available when we did. Everything felt well cared for and we really appreciated the full-sized washer and dryer in the unit. Perfect for 2 people and highly recommended!

The Mahana-Your Destination!
Car: recommended

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 down to Whalers Village. An easy walk allowing one to explore the area, take in the views or dine at neighboring resort restaurants.

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: the 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 it's 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 the obvious beach activities such as sunbathing and snorkeling. Equipment is available to rent nearby.
