Our beautiful home is furnished with a PREMIUM Simmons pillow-top Cal-King mattress encased in a bedbug protective cover; Queen sleeper sofa with upgraded mattress (linens are provided); Butter-soft leather recliner and HD televisions with premium cable which are located in the bedroom and living room (with sound bar).

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 watching the sun rise over two Hawaiian Islands, while having coffee on the lanai. 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!

Everything was as expected. Superb.

  • 5 of 5

For a high-end rental, could not have asked for anything more. Beautiful, super clean, well-maintained, beautifully decorated, great views, well-equipped, lacking nothing. What more can anyone say? We splurged on this unit, and happy we did.

Owner's Response: It's nice to know our efforts to make our unit one of the best at The Mahana is appreciated. Our goal is to have our guests know immediately they have made the right decision when they open the door and step in. You will see how well we have prepared for your visit, from the thorough cleaning before you arrive, to having most of your day to day items already waiting. We even provide beach towels! We take pride in our beautiful home and are blessed to be able to share it with you. You will feel truly special knowing you are seeing Maui and the beautiful waters of the Pacific from a vantage point not seen by many. These reasons and more are why our guests return year after year.

Amazing place to relax and soak up Maui's beauty!

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from 7 wonderful nights at this beautiful and well appointed condo! They have left not detail undone. It is stocked with every item one needs when staying away from home. It is truly a home away from home. Fully stocked kitchen, BBQ tools, beach towels, cooler, umbrella, boogie boards, small lockable safe, etc. The furnishings are lovely as well. Best part of all is the view! Whether you take it in from the floor to ceiling glass windows in the living room or from the balcony, it's breathtaking to say the least. We had a great time and won't hesitate to come back!

The Best Maui Condo - Period!

  • 5 of 5

If you want the best - this is it. Just finished up a week's stay in Maui at this beautiful condominium just north of the Kaanapali area. The unit is sparkling clean and furnished beautifully. The photos tell it all. Penthouse condo with a lanai that overlooks both the islands of Lanai and Molokai. Spectacular evening sunsets you just have to see to believe. Very lovely living room with great views, nicely furnished and big screen TV. Bedroom has a very nice and comfortable bed and island furnishings. Oh, and yes, the bedroom has the view off the lanai. Modern tiled bath with walk in shower and two shower heads. Also, washer/dryer units in the utility closet. Kitchen was the best well stocked one I have encountered on over 20 visits to Maui. Has all you need for cooking any type of meal which we did on most of the nights there. Added touch of having two beach chairs, umbrella, cooler and two large beach towels which we used every day was very much appreciated. Also, some boogie boards for some surf fun. Loved the walks along the beach after sunset, but also for some nice daytime sun time, snorkeling and swimming. Great location with easy drives to Lahaina, Kaanapali, and Kapalua. Highly recommended!!!

Outstanding oceanfront property, spectacular views, beautifully furnished and fully stocked. I wouldn't stay anywhere else on the island.

Owner's Response: We feel The Mahana and our unit especially, is the perfect place to relax and enjoy what Maui has to offer. Located within walking distance to stores and restaurants and a short drive to Lahaina, where more shopping and food can be found. A beach right outside your door and beautiful sunsets viewed from your private lanai - what more can you asked for? Thanks for your review.

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.
