About Kathy Rain
Hi. We are Michael and Kathy Rain,owners of #1216 Penthouse at the Mahana. We are Realtors in the San Francisco Bay Area with Coldwell Banker Real Estate and are very particular about properties. Michael is also a professional musician playing guitar for over 55 years with 2 CD's including one Hawaiian CD called Island Rain. We are passionate about each other after 39 years together and our love of Maui. We are avid hikers and have had the most incredible hikes around the Island. The Mahana is our second home and our goal is to rent to couples that would like to feel like it is their second home too. Aloha Nui Loa.
Kathy Rain purchased this Condo in 2004
Why Kathy Rain chose Lahaina
As long time Realtors in the San Francisco Coastal communities, we wanted to find a view vacation home that was as good or better than what we have at home. When we decided to purchase a vacation home in Hawaii, we visted the 4 main Islands as well as Lanai. We looked for an Island that would have enough to do without the big city feel and population and where we wouldn't have to be concerned with major bad weather. Maui was the perfect choice. We went to every part of the Island and settled on North Kaanapali Beach. We looked at every condo complex and found that the Mahana was the only all oceanfront condo. We also loved the fact that the bedroom faced the water instead of the mountain. We only wanted the top floor, 12th-Penthouse, and we wanted the Lanai building. We found the perfect place.
What makes this Condo unique
We love the fact that there is a reef in front of the Mahana which means that to access the water, you would have to go 100 yards in either direction. This keeps the beach activity and noise in front of our condo down to a minimum. There is boardwalk that starts just south of our building that goes all the way to the Hyatt Hotel which about 2.5 miles. What a wonderful walk to get coffee or 'earn' your lunch at the many great places in Kaanapali. BTW, we also continue walking south to Lahaina. The Maui bus system is great and we can take a return bus ride that drops us off 1 block away.

Great property, great views, everything AAA!
Incredible lanai views!
Everything was just like the photos and descriptions. It feels like "home " as soon as you enter. Clean, modern, thoughtful details, easy to be on vacation here.
You won't want to leave!
Everything about the property is exactly as you expect from the listing and pictures. And the views are magnificent. We stayed in February and loved that we could see whales from the lanai every time we sat out there. There were two sets of binoculars available in the unit and they made it even easier to watch the "show." The kitchen came with ever possible utensil, and it was easy to pick up fresh fish nearby for a romantic dinner on the lanai or even indoors in front of the floor to ceiling windows. We did, as advised, close the blinds in the afternoon to keep the sun from shining in and heating up the unit, so we didn't have any problem. The best thing for us, however, was the comfort of the bed! If you are used to having a memory foam mattress, you will love this one.
Location made it easy to walk to a great beach just a few steps away and there was a great little grocery store just across the street along with other shops as well. We also strolled over to Dukes for Happy Hour and except for a bad knee we would have walked even further. Went down to the pool just one day and it was heated to a perfect temperature and never busy when we walked by. We certainly wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
“Felt like home”
Our condo was everything it was advertised to be and more with lots of little touches that I would include in my own home. In addition, the entire resort property is well maintained.
Absolutely gorgeous condo. Beautiful views!
