About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

You will begin your Mahana tropical experience when you open the front door! From our ocean front condo on the 11th of 12 floors, you will see windows that go from the floor to the ceiling, & wall to wall in the living room. The Pacific Ocean is right there! On closer inspection, you will see the islands of Lanai'i to the south, Molokai'i to the north, beach going north towards Honokowai or south towards Black Rock. The lanai is fully fronted on the Pacific Ocean with access from both the living area and the bedroom through large wall to wall, ceiling to floor sliding-glass lanai doors. In the bedroom, this allows for a total view of the ocean when you wake up! This gives you the guaranteed view! Now the second part of the Mahana experience is the sound! Open the lanai door (either one of them!), and hear the Pacific Ocean kiss the beach that is literally a stone's throw away! A true delight for your senses!

Although a complete remodel was finished in January of 2011, we make various upgrades each year to keep it at its Premium Level.

There is porcelain flooring throughout the entire unit with custom built-in cherry wood and granite cabinetry in the kitchen, the bathroom, and the living room, as well as custom soffit light features in kitchen and living area.

This is one of the few resorts that is on a sandy, swimming beach with DIRECT ocean front views and central A/C. The views are to die for, whether you are sitting in your living room, getting a snack in the kitchen, on your private lanai, swimming in the ocean, at the ocean-front pool, or relaxing in the hot tub!

At the Mahana you will experience an upscale boutique resort atmosphere on Ka'anapali's scenic North Beach, yet the quiet surroundings provide uncommon privacy. Breathtaking Pacific Ocean views, including the beautiful islands of Lanai'i to the south and Molokai'i to the north, seem to meet you at your living room floor to ceiling window. Each morning will start with this wondrous view as you gaze out your bedroom ceiling to floor window. From the lanai, you can enjoy many tropical sights and sounds as you enjoy your morning coffee or your sunset-watching libation. These glorious views are also your backdrop while enjoying the pool, and the pool area BBQ grills. Miles of open beach beckon you to snorkel among the pristine coral reefs, take a walk (or run!), or just lay back and soak up the sun – be sure to have the sunscreen handy! Shopping and dining are nearby, and the famous Whalers Village, with its eclectic blend of boutiques and memorabilia shops - there's even a whaler's museum - is just a short drive or walk away. With the Mahana's central location, golfers will enjoy the closeness to Kapalua and Ka'anapali's golf courses.

The restaurant 'Duke's Beach Grill' is just next door - a few minutes walking distance - serving breakfast, lunch and dinner with ocean front views! Or, you can take a short drive into historic Lahaina town for sightseeing - on land or sea - for restaurants that will satisfy a great number of tastes, and a selection of shops that will help you find that great reminder of your wonderful Maui vacation.

A boardwalk starts just outside the Mahana, and ends at the Hyatt Regency – about 3 miles away. It goes through Whalers Village in the heart of Ka'anapali. On this walkway, there are parks, water activity rental kiosks, and restaurants, so driving isn't a necessity for a myriad of activities.

About Judith Philipps

We came for a one-time Hawaiian vacation, fell in love with Maui and The Mahana, and decided to make it a permanent part of our lives! We call Cody, WY home, with all its beautiful mountain scenery and Yellowstone Park just an hour away, but the view of the Pacific from the comforts of our own chairs keeps calling us back! We love to travel, but a part of our winters will be spent in this wonderful condo on this most beautiful spot of Maui! We hope that you will love the experience, and deem it a delight to return to again and again!

Judith Philipps purchased this condo in 2010

Why Judith Philipps chose West Maui

Maui has been voted “Best Island” by readers of Conde Nast Traveler for more than a dozen years. Maui has endless activities for vacationers, from fabulous beaches to fantastic dining and nightlife. Come see all that Maui has to offer!

Helicopter tours are an excellent way to take in the views of the whole island, including incredible waterfalls, sea cliffs and forests you would be hard pressed to view on foot. For those looking for closer views, you can take an ATV tour, or check out the Zip Lines at Kapalua or the West Maui mountains. Of course, there is the 'Road to Hana', but Hana is not the real objective. The road curves, the waterfalls, the incredible views of the ocean, the many bays (Nuaailua Bay at Keanae and Aunty Sandy's banana bread), or Waianapanapa State Park with its beautiful black sand beach are the main attractions. If you’re curious about what goes on above and/or under the waves, snorkeling or scuba tours are a great way to view the incredible variety of life that lives under the surface of the ocean. If you don’t want to get wet, there’s even a submarine that can take you into the deep while you view its mysteries from the comfort of a dry cabin. Of course, there is always a sunset cruise around the island for a very memorable evening! But the perfect ending to any day on Maui can be found right on your own private lanai - your 'Home-Away-From-Home", where you can kick off your shoes, and still see and hear the ocean! A Tropical Delight!

What makes this condo unique

The Mahana is unique in the fact that it is within feet of a beach, and has private lanais looking directly at the beach and the Pacific Ocean. Located on the northwest side of the island, it is at the north end of the wonderful Ka'anapali Beach. That means that all of the benefits of Ka'anapali Beach are within walking distance - great snorkeling, the Boardwalk, restaurants, and Whaler's Village - to name a few - but you are in a quieter, more relaxed setting. The Mahana is not far from Lahaina. Once the capital of the Hawaiian Kingdom in the early nineteenth century, Lahaina was also a historic whaling village during the whaling boom of the mid-1800’s. Today, the city blends its rich history with today's many modern activities creating a wonderful tropical paradise.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Aloha Judith,

Thank you so much for sharing your lovely condo with us. From the moment that we walked in I knew that we had picked the perfect place to celebrate our 25 year wedding anniversary. The view from your lanai is absolutely stunning. Your condo provided everything that we needed to be comfortable and we felt at home away from home. The Mahana grounds are very nicely maintained and it is very very quiet. We enjoyed listening to the ocean at night with the breeze. We prepared some great dinners on the BBQ grills by the pool. Our favorite spot was Kahekili Beach Park just down the path. The coral reef there is perfect for snorkeling and your beach chairs were very comfortable! Thank you for a relaxing vacation. When we return to Maui we will for sure return to Mahana 1117.

Truly Amazing & Stunning Condo

  • 5 of 5

We arrived on the afternoon of June 14th to be met by the stunning view from the floor to ceiling windows. Took our breath away & brought tears to my eyes. The Condo was immaculately clean & beautifully furnished. I can't think of anything that wasn't included or needed. Just wonderful to fall asleep at night hearing the sound of the waves crashing against the shore-we couldn't have been any closer. Loved taking early morning walks along the beach-access immediately in front of pool area-returning to our Lanai for breakfast & taking in that stunning view. Whenever we returned to our place in paradise, we never got over the view, as soon as you opened the door...WOW. We enjoyed using the BBQ area by the pool, well equipped & very clean-so nice to kick back after a day out with our dinner, on the Lanai of course. Yes the sunsets were spectacular & unforgettable. Maui is a truly beautiful island as is Mahana 1117 a stunning place to stay. We spent 7 wonderful days & nights here & were very sad to leave. We will definitely be returning sometime in the future. Thank you for sharing your place in paradise. Tracey & David

Owner's Response: Mahalo nui loa, Tracey and David! It was a pleasure having you as Mahana 1117 guests! The views are spectacular from the lanai - it is hard to leave in the morning, and wonderful to return after a day at the beach or island exploring! I am very glad that your vacation was wonderful - wonderful enough to think about coming back! Mahalo; and, I hope to hear from you in the not too distant future :)!​ Judith

Owner's Response: Mahalo, Terry, for your kind words, and I'm very happy to hear that you had a wonderful time. Although we do upgrade, when needed, various items in the unit, the basics of the photos tell the story of Mahana 1117. We want you to have a wonderful home-away-from-home, tropical experience! I look forward to hearing from you again! Judith

Our first visit to Maui was better than we Could've possibly imagined. The Phillips condo was incredible. When we first looked at the pictures for Mahana 1117 we thought those pictures of the water and the mountains HAVE to be enhanced. Boy were we wrong. That is truly your view. Breath taking. The condo was well stocked with anything you could possibly need for you stay. It's convieient location to shopping, zip lining, whale watching makes getting placed quick and easy. With the beach directly below you and a boardwalk right beside you, you have several options for a long walk. Oh, and the there are the sunsets. Wow! It was so quiet there (except for the surf pounding and that was amazing) you would be thought we had the whole building to our selves.

Thank you Phillips. Our first trip to Maui was beyond expectations.

Owner's Response: Mahalo nui loa, Sean! I am so glad that all went well on your 1st trip to Maui, and thank you for your kind words. I truly agree that pictures don't do justice to the actual scene. The views from the lanai, the floor-to-ceiling windows, and the front door are incredible! Being at the north end of Ka'anapali Beach has the advantage of this scenery AND quiet solitude - which is enhanced by the private lanai. Again, I am very happy that your celebration trip to Maui and Mahana 1117 were incredible. Judith

Lovely condo with uninterrupted ocean views

  • 5 of 5

Very well equipped condo where the hosts thought of everything to make it your home away from home. You will find anything you may need: from a garlic press to a cooler to take your lunch to the beach, from children's toys to warm blankets to take with you on the sunrise trip. We also enjoyed our interactions with the host prior to the trip. Judith was proactive with information and answered all our questions almost instantaneously. Highly recommended.

Owner's Response: Mahalo nui loa! The 1117 condo is meant to be your tropical home-away-from-home, so I'm happy that you found that to be the case. I do try to keep things on hand that a guest would be needing while 'at home' and going around Maui. If there is something dramatically missing, I will try to remedy it as quickly as possible. Again, mahalo! Judith

You can walk along the beach for about a mile without leaving the sand! The Beach Boardwalk is minutes from the condo and goes for about 3 miles (along the beach and through a few resorts). On the Boardwalk, you'll find restaurants (Duke's Beach House is the closest, and there are a few in Whaler's Village - Leilani's and Hula Grill, to name a couple), rental kiosks (paddle boards, kayaks, surfboards, snorkels, etc.), as well as art kiosks, and clothing kiosks. There also is Whaler's Village which has many shops to peak your interest.
