Sophie is a wonderful host and very easy to communicate with. She's very attentive and made sure we had everything we needed. She answered all questions promptly and even mailed a wonderful packet of helpful brochures of activities, food, etc in Hawaii. When we arrived, she had arranged a goodie basket of Hawaiian treats with a sweet note, which was a nice personal touch. The unit yourself was fantastic. You won't find a better view and watching the sunsets from the balcony was breathtaking. It was also kept very clean (I'm a germophobe so that's important to me) and provided everything you can need for your stay. Kitchen was stocked with all appliances, pots, pans, grilling tools, aluminum foil, etc. It was also a major plus that Sophie provides all beach going items--chairs, umbrella, cooler, boogie boards, water noodles snorkel, flippers, beach towels, beach bags--we didn't need to buy a thing! The condo is a one minute walk to the beach, which is a long sandy beach so it's great for laying out and setting up for a day at the beach. The complex as a whole is peaceful and relatively private. At night, we didn't hear anybody else on their balcony and could stargaze in peace and quiet, it's so relaxing! Also, the condo uses a keypad instead of a physical key to get in so no worrying about losing a key on the beach. Grocery store and some restaurants are within a 5 minute walk from the condo which was really convenient. We couldn't be happier with our stay and had a lovely time. The only thing i will point out is that most activities take place in Wailea, which is about 45 minutes away, so it will be a drive to get there, but it wasnt a huge deal and honestly the drive is gorgeous. Friendly tip--if you drive to Wailea on highway 30 you will pass a fresh fruit stand which has the BEST fruit and also a dessert place with the most delicious banana cream pie. We highly recommend Sophie's unit for anybody who wants great location, the best ocean views, and a relaxing and safe place to stay.

Owner's Response: Mahalo nui loa for such a fabulous review!!!! I really appreciate the time and effort to write such a fantastic review and to share your wonderful experience. It is my priority to provide a memorable vacation experience for my guests and I am so delighted to know that you had such an amazing vacation. I believe that all the extras that I provide make a difference in the overall experience. In addition, cleanliness, nicely appointed furnishings, and well maintained unit are all important factors to my guests. And of course, you just can't beat the unobstructed views of the ocean from the lanai (balcony) as well as through the floor to ceiling and wall to wall glass windows! Magical! I look forward to having you return as my guests. A hui hou, Sophie

What an AWESOME place and Sophie was a most gracious host

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed every aspect of our stay. The house has everything you could possibly need including snorkel gear, boogie boards, cooler, and beach chairs.

Mahana is centrally located and has easy access to anywhere you want to visit on Maui.

From beautiful rainbows most mornings and turtles playing in the surf right from your living room chair.

We will return and highly recommend this beautiful home.

Lovely, luxe and lounging

  • 5 of 5

What a getaway! This is the perfect place to relax, and the owners really provide everything you could possibly need. Seriously, all you need is a toothbrush and a bikini! The condo owners provide the rest from an updated and modern kitchen, wine glasses, beach gear and even shampoo and conditioner in the beautiful shower. It's very clean, which is very important to me.

The location is unique because you are only a few yards away from the ocean but up on the second floor. In most hotels or resorts, you're so far away from the water that it's hard to tell you're in Hawaii. We enjoyed the soothing sounds of the ocean from the lanai while sipping cocktails and making dinner. One of the best features, you can see the neighboring islands of Molokai and Lanai while watching spectacular sunsets. We made sure to make an appointment every day to see it. Then at night, we watched the stars come out.

For those who don't want to cook, you are far enough from Kaanapali's main drag so that it's not crowded on the beach. Yet, you can walk to places like Duke's for happy hour or dinner. It's so convenient, because the grocery store isn't far, neither are lots of excellent restaurants. Not sure where to go? The owners provide an extensive 3 ring binder on where to eat, what to do and where to go. I even scored a coupon for some free pancakes at Slappy Cakes.

If you like the water, the ocean in front is teeming with fish and has some of the best snorkeling in Maui. In short, this is really the best of all worlds. It's convenient, comfortable, clean and quiet. I have returned multiple times and hope to do so again. Aloha!

Owner's Response: Mahalo nui for such a fabulous review of your experience in my one bedroom condo at the Mahana. It is definitely the perfect getaway in Maui. You really can not get closer to the ocean! The floor to ceiling and wall to wall living room windows provide the most spectacular views of the ocean, surf, beach and neighbor islands of Moloka'i and Lana'i! You fall asleep to the sounds of the surf and wake up to rainbows! Magic! To assure that your visit is not only memorable but hassle free, I provide many extras and amenities. And prior to my guests' visit, I am in constant communication to give recommendations and suggestions for the many activities and attractions that they can expect to enjoy in Maui. Sharing my aloha is all part of our philosophy in Hawaii! E Komo Mai!

Lovely setting, beautiful condo, luxurious details

  • 5 of 5

Easy access to beach and snorkeling. Luxurious bed and bath, updated kitchen and many comfortable touches. Sophie's basket of coffee and treats was so welcoming. We had arrived late at night and were able to breakfast in the morning on the lanai with kona coffiee and lilikoi pancakes and whales offshore. Great start to a relaxing week. We snorkeled several times and were able to walk in from the beach, avoid driving, parking and crowed beaches, heaven!

Beautiful condo! Will return.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently stayed at Sophie's beautifully remodeled home at Mahana. Everything was perfect; the bed was comfortable and the amenities were wonderful. Sophie had nice quality towels, remodeled kitchen and bathroom, flooring, nice balcony overlooking the ocean. My husband and I noted how much we felt we were on a cruise ship. Sophie left us a gift basket with yummy things and a bottle of nice red wine. We loved that her kitchen as so organized and well stocked. We couldn't have wanted anything else. We needed this vacation and her Unit 216 was perfect. Thank you Sophie; we will return.

Attention to every detail! Perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at many different VRBO condos in multiple states and have never had a owner with more attention to every detail to make us feel welcome. Sophie was more than accommodating on our check out time. We even came in late on our day of arrival not many places were open for food after a long flight but we came into the condo to find a basket of local goodies put together for us. The condo has everything you need, it is a clean quiet paradise. Beautiful floor to ceiling windows and a large patio to watch the palms sway and waves roll in. A perfect place to watch the sunset from the lanai. One last piece of gratitude to share is that this is the first time I have EVER received a hand written card with my deposit check enclosed. Just goes to show the owners really do care about your full experience even after you have made it back home! It was wonderful to get a little token of Hawaii with the personal card since we were still wishing we were listening to the waves, watching the perfect Maui sunset. We certainly cannot wait to come back to this condo in the future.
