About the property

Studio, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)


Because we rent directly to you, your cost is significantly lower. A room in the Hyatt with this level of luxury and view does not exist but if it did would much more.

During the whale season you can spend all day watching the humpback whales cruise by, slap their tales and breach on the lanai with an unobstructed eighth tenth and twelfth floor views looking directly to the West between Moloka'i and Lana'i.

The Mahana offers WIFI internet access in the unit on the lanai, at the pool and lobby areas. Studio 1213 has High Definition Digital Cable and a High Definition LCD flat screen TV. Also has Central Air Conditioning.

Studio 1213 is our Twelfth Floor, in a 12 Floor building, Studio Condominium in North Kaanapali Beach in Maui.

We also rent a 10th Floor 2 bedroom suite at the Mahana. (VRBO# 205883) It was totally renovated to the highest standards a few years ago and has a magnificent view to the South as well as the West.

About Ken Green

Claire and I live in Holmes Beach, Florida area and Moorestown, NJ. We stayed in The Mahana in the early 1990's and fell in love with the complex. We returned in 2003 and I started looking for a place on a rainy day. I happened upon The Mahana and visited an open house. We started with a 10th floor studio and then added the 12th floor studio. We then sold the 10th floor studio and upgraded to the one bedroom suite which had just been gutted and redone. We love The Mahana and have many friends there. We have been there in all seasons but recently we have gone every Winter.

Ken Green purchased this studio in 2004

Why Ken Green chose Lahaina

The care taken to keep The Mahana in perfect condition and, of course, view.

What makes this studio unique

VIEW, VIEW, VIEW!!!! Direct Ocean Front! It is quiet but near all conveniences.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a fantastic stay at the Mahana 1213 condo - the views from the balcony were absolutely stunning and the condo itself was better than any hotel room I have ever stayed at.

The condo is also in a great location - it is a short drive to Lahaina in one direction or to Napili in the other direction. The beach directly in front of the condo building is also really nice and there is a board walk along the front which provides a nice walk first thing in the morning or last thing at night. Finally, the Dukes restaurant is about a 2 minute walk from the condo which is excellent!

Customer service from Ken is first class - for example, on our last day he let us extend our check out time by a few hours as our flight wasn't until the evening which was really helpful.

Would thoroughly recommend this condo to anyone.

Best spot we've stayed

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 5 days at Mahana 1213 and what a place! We have visited Maui several times and have always tried to seek out new places to find that gem. We found it. We absolutely loved this spot. The place was clean and completely updated. The kitchen has all equipment you need. Ken and Claire have thought of everything you possibly need in a studio. It's perfect for 2 people and we had planned on going out for dinner every night but the view and the privacy were hard to beat so we ended up having a light supper and drinks every night on our lanai. We were concerned that it would be too small for an extended stay but it is just perfect for a couple. Ken was absolutely perfect to deal with when inquiring and booking. We are planning to return often.

Owner's Response: Thanks Janet and Mark. I am glad you enjoyed our condo. I can't wait to get there next May. Believe it or not we have not stayed in our renovated condo yet. I was in the Mahana while it was being renovated but we left the day we had the first checkin and they arrived 1 hour before the final details were completed.

Ken was responsive and professional from the moment I reached out to him for a reservation request.

The condo is beautiful. The views and the sound of the ocean mesmerizing. The remodel is top notch. It is thoughtfully stocked with everything you could possibly need.

In short, the whole experience was luxurious and well appointed.

Thank you Ken for a wonderful experience .

A few quick tips:

*The Mahana will provide you with an access code for the gate in the parking lot that leads to a winding oceanfront boardwalk that passes by the Westin Villas, Dukes Beach House and countless pretty hotels.

*In the opposite direction, just a short walk away is the Lahaina Shores Beach Resort which has a small Fitness Center. You can access a day pass for just $5.00.

*Though the Mahana never felt crowded and the area very well maintained, you are only a few blocks from a large grocery store.

Perfect studio in paradise

  • 5 of 5

The studio was recently renovated and looks great. The view is unbelievable! Sitting on the lanai is pure heaven. The condo is surprisingly quiet- rarely heard neighbors. Shopping and restaurants are within walking distance. Will recommend this location and this unit to family and friends. Thanks Ken!

Best studio unit on Ka'anapali!

  • 5 of 5

This is the 3rd time we have stayed in this beautiful penthouse unit & were the initial guests since the renovation! Wow!!! The view as always is unbeatable. Unless you look down from the lanai, all you see is the islands of Lanai, Molokai & the ocean. We always sit on the lanai after our long morning walk on the beach. We have easily spotted turtles, rays & colorful fish with the naked eye & zoom in with the binoculars provided for a better look. Sunsets are absolutely amazing!! The renovations to this penthouse unit are absolutely wonderful. The plank vinyl flooring gives the appearance of real wood. The stainless steel appliances & granite counter tops give the room a luxurious feel The new walk in shower is roomy & along with the new sink, granite top & wood vanity, really complete the elegant look of the unit. The new king bed is wonderful & combined with the rolling surf makes it impossible not to get a restful night sleep. The finishing touch is the new wood ceiling fan which my wife told me a dozen times that we have to get one like it for back home. We have traveled to Maui 14 times in the last 26 years & have stayed in other resorts north of black rock on Kaanapali. We actually had a time share for a while at the Marriott. It was just getting too crowded & busy. We tried the Mahana 10 years ago & now would not stay anywhere else! Walk to Dukes, Castaways or the KBC for ocean front dinners. Short walk to the Tymes market for supplies or for the Maui bus. Great stretch of beach for walking, swimming or snorkling. Just a great location. Thanks to Ken & Claire for their wonderful hospitality. We hope to make our next trip during whale season & would love to stay in this unit again.

Best Sleep Ever!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time in this suite. It's not fancy but is very clean and well equipped. We really appreciated the beach chairs, binoculars, and snorkeling equipment. The mattress is very high quality and even though my husband and I normally sleep on a king sized bed, the queen in this suite was extremely comfortable! And the VIEWS! INCREDIBLE! We always try to stay at this resort because of its ocean front views and super clean pool and hottub, but being on the 12th floor was outstanding! Thanks Ken for making this suite available!

Honeymoon Stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful stay here. The view was incredible, great location and very clean. It has everything you need to stay for long periods of time, including the washer, dryer, and full kitchen, which were definite things that would bring us back. We loved being on the 12th floor as well!

Owner's Response: Hi Samantha, Thank you very much for your review. We love our condo and look forward to staying there in the Winter months. Both of our children honeymooned in our Penthouse condo 1213 and 9 months after our Daughter returned home we had our first grandchild! I hope that you can return. Ken
