Overview

About the property

Oceanfront Condo, Updated 1 Bedroom, 2 Baths with Views from Every Room

Captivating views. Romantic sunsets. Ocean waves lapping the shore. The Pacific reaches out to the horizon, with the islands of Lanai and Molokai to the west. Mahana 705 is your inviting and thoughtfully equipped home-away-from-home designed to help you get the most out of your trip to Maui.

What's to do here?

Watch the humpback whales in winter and look for sea turtles year around. Ocean swimming, paddleboarding, surfing, kiteboarding, outrigger paddling and kayaking (equipment rentals available nearby). Or just relax on the oceanfront lanai of this idyllic condo.

What's included in the condo?

Charming Hawaiian style décor throughout the large bedroom and spacious living-dining area. Full kitchen and two full baths. A "Westin Heavenly King-Sized bed" new in 2016. Washer dryer in the condo, so you can travel light. Two Flat Screen TVs, a DVD player, and a stereo system. Free wifi.

What about cooking?

The kitchen is bright and 'user-friendly.' Equipped with everything (well, no turkey pan) you'll need for cooking, dining and drinking. Granite counter tops, stainless steel refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave and flat top range for easy clean-up. Also a drip coffee maker, coffee grinder, blender, toaster, and citrus juicer. A few spices are available for your use. The Mahana has the greatest gas barbecues by the pool for everyone's use - also a fun place to meet fellow travelers.

Are you both getting ready at the same time?

You will love the convenience of two full baths with over-sized rain-style shower heads, even hairdryers in both. The master has a curling and flat irons, too.

Other stuff...

Tommy Bahamas Beach Chairs, several sized coolers, for when you visit other beaches, umbrellas, and boogie boards. Good binoculars for watching the wildlife, and books describing all the activities, the history, Hawaiian drink making, the fish you'll see while snorkeling.

What's at the Mahana?

It consists of two twelve-story buildings connected by a classic, lovely Hawaiian style entrance and lobby, with a beautiful stretch of sand and lawn in front. You can walk along the beach for miles, then return to the Mahana for a relaxing swim or soak in the ocean view hot tub. Parking is always free. A tennis court and an Oceanside shuffleboard court are there to enjoy.

Ambience...

The Mahana attracts a relaxed group of travelers from all over the world, seeking a quality island experience in an authentic and beautifully Hawaiian setting.

What else should I know?

The Expedia desk in the lobby will organize any activity you wish, from a snorkel trip to a dinner cruise, zip-line to a kayak tour. There are shops, restaurants even a farmer's market in walking distance. Dukes Oceanfront Restaurant, located next door to the Mahana, on the beach, is ideal for breakfast, lunch, dinner and happy hour. Whaler's Village is a short distance (approximately 3 miles - you can walk to it along the beach boardwalk which starts at the Mahana). Lahaina and Kapalua are a few miles further - an easy drive for sightseeing and golf.

Mahana 705 ~ an ideal location to enjoy all that Maui has to offer, or... to just do nothing at all. Let the beauty of Hawaii surround you, let the ocean waves gently lull you to sleep, and the tropical scents of ginger and hibiscus awaken. Your dreams of Hawaii start here.

About Karen Bremer

Let the spirit of aloha captivate you as it did us. How can one not fall in love with this beautiful setting. We have been returning to Kaanapali since 1979, and our once a year sojourn is always a joy with something new to discover. Get ready to relax and be rejuvenated! Maui does that!

Karen Bremer purchased this condo in 2005

Why Karen Bremer chose West Maui

The view! The condo is near perfection. The beautiful beach walks, stunning sunsets, romantic rainbows and potent mai tais. We found it all here. The weather is about as perfect all year 'round as one could ask for. It is the BEST PLACE to watch the whales in winter. Maui never feels crowded, but due to its visitors, has great recreation and many fantastic restaurants and activities.

What makes this condo unique

On those days you want to do nothing, Mahana 705 is idyllic. Listen to the ocean as you relax on the lanai, at the pool, in the hot tub, on the beach. The ambience is always fun, but mellow. No cell phones on the beach here! Walk to the farmer's market for tropical fruit and flowers, and fresh fish for dinner. On the days when you desire a little more activity, it's a short walk to the best snorkeling park on the island, or a short drive over to Whaler's Village or Lahaina for some gifts for the folks at home or to go to a luau. It's a convenient spot from which to take a longer excursion out to Hana and the Seven Pools, or up to the top of the volcano for the sunrise and a little hike. The concierge at the Mahana will find you anthing from a dinner cruise to a kayak trip. There's always something new to discover, even after 30 years!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Karen, What a wonderful time we had at your condo in Maui. We loved every minute of our stay. Everything at the condo was lovely, so well organized and so clean! We loved going to sleep at night listening to the waves. What fund to have Duke's restaurant just a short walk away. Thank you again for your generous donation to the North Lake Tahoe Historical Society of your Maui condo.

We hope that you love Maui as much as we do!

Beautiful condo with gorgeous sunsets!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful place to stay while visiting Maui! We couldn't be happier with our choice. Nothing else is this close to the ocean. Everything you need for a fabulous vacation is here and you will feel right at home the minute you walk through the door. I am very particular and couldn't find fault with anything. The bed is very comfortable and we slept great~ Not that difficult with the waves lulling you to sleep! It is really convenient having the second bathroom and the washer/dryer. Beach towels, chairs, coolers etc are there for you to use. We even left Bret's fishing pole for the next guest. Great catch and release right off the beach! We quickly found our way around town and settled right in. Fabulous market directly across the street and Duke's just a short walk down the boardwalk. We will definitely be back. Thank you Karen!

Mahana Unit 705

  • 5 of 5

This was the second time that we have stayed in Mahana 705 and the experience was as good or better than the first. Virtually everything we needed was provided and we added a few extras like pool noodles, etc for future guests. It is very convenient having the second bathroom for guest couples who may want to have "his and her" spaces. Views from the lanai are spectacular including turtles in the surf below. It was a great time once again and we have already booked dates for next year.

Better than the picture!

  • 5 of 5

Our Maui oceanfront luxury condo was breathtaking! We couldn't have asked for a better view, location, amenities. The 2 bathrooms made it nice when trying to get ready at the same time. Watching the beautiful Maui sunsets from the balcony & entire condo living area & bedroom was worth the trip to Hawaii! We will return 😀�

Beautiful View! Perfect condo in a great location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the Bremer's condo in July 2017 for part of our honeymoon and cannot say enough nice things about the unit, location, complex and owners. As soon as we booked the condo, we received an extensive email from Karen with a lot of helpful information about travel, local restaurants and amenities. Thank you so much for the tip about baggage/rental cars! Definitely saved us some time.

As far as the condo itself, it was perfect. We stayed in a resort about 5 minutes down the road for the first few nights of our honeymoon and, honestly, may prefer the Bremer's place to the resort. With floor-to-ceiling windows out the back and a spacious porch, it was the perfect place to watch the sunset with a glass of wine and some appetizers before heading out to dinner. The washer/dryer and kitchen appliances were all well-kept and made our stay that much more enjoyable. The complex was not very busy when we were there, so we enjoyed relaxing in the lawn chairs by the beach and pool after a day full of activities or travel. I would certainly recommend both the Bremer's place and the Mahana to couples or small families and would love to return!

Thank you, Karen, for sharing your place to us. We loved it!

Better than we could have imagined

  • 5 of 5

We booked this condo for our 25th wedding anniversary and could not have picked a better room or condo location. It exceeded our expectations in all aspects and we would recommend it to anyone looking for that special celebration. The units are perfectly located near excellent dining options but far enough away so you are not on top of others. This units view is stunning and the sunsets are both breathtaking and secluded. Karen was wonderful throughout the entire booking process and made it easy and relaxed for novices like us. If you would like to be lulled to sleep by the sounds of the ocean and gently woken by those same sounds the next morning, look no further. We are already planning a return trip!

Ziplines are nearby. The ocean is a marvelous place to try or perfect your stand-up paddle boarding, Haleakala Volcano offers hiking and mountain biking, and an amazing sunrise. Lahaina, an historic whaling town is great for getting a taste of Hawaiian dining, art and history. Upcountry offers exotic flowers, a lavender farm, parasailing, and a fascinating artist community at Makawao.
