Our spacious corner unit has one of the most outstanding views at the Mahana and on the island - now newly remodeled it is also one of the nicest places to stay as well! This condo is on the south west corner of the building which means you will not only have the gorgeous west ocean views but the unobstructed south facing ocean shore views as well. Standing at the window, you feel as though you are floating above the ocean with views of Black Rock and Lanai to the South and Molokai to the North. Watch the whales from December through April right from the living room chairs or the lanai.
Enjoy the views in complete comfort and luxury in this newly remodeled two bedroom, two bath unit, which features a brand new full kitchen, air conditioning, dishwasher, microwave, flat screen televisions in the living room and both bedrooms, free WiFi and a washer/dryer. The remodel has been years in the planning and was worth every minute and dollar spent! The backsplash tile is a hand drawn and carved Hawaiian landscape - sun, waves and flowers. The counter tops are black honed absolute granite and the cabinets have a luxurious, tasteful tropical feel. All appliances are top of the line, including the SubZero refrigerator. The whole unit has a sand colored Italian floor tile and new designer area carpets that feel like heaven on your feet in the living room and both bedrooms. The living room furniture has also been updated with ultra comfy Tommy Bahama swivel window chairs and sofa - you wont be able to resist taking a nap on this luxurious couch while you listen to the waves crash on the beach below!
Enjoy the sunset each evening on the private lanai - no annoying metal bars to peek through.....The resort also has a heated pool, hot tub, a tennis court, and shuffleboard. There are tennis racquets and balls in the condo for our guests to use, along with beach chairs, beach towels and coolers. Amazing soft sand for walks and beautiful coral reef for incredible snorkeling are right outside the door.
Duke's Beach House Restaurant is an easy walk (you can see Duke's from the south-facing windows in the condo), as well as many other resort and local restaurants.
Amenities include free WiFi, tennis courts, swimming pool, hot tub, shuffleboard and a barbecue area.
The shopping complex across the street has a wonderful grocery store, subway, pizza, coffee.....Even a place for manicures! Only a few blocks north and you will find the Farmers Market, Snorkel Bobs, the Fish Market and many apparel and souvenir shops.
This property is very unique on Maui - although there are many beautiful places to stay, ocean front properties like this are hard to find!

About Heather Hansen
My husband, son and I live in the beautiful state of Washington, where we own and operate a sports medicine clinic.
Heather Hansen purchased this Condo in 2011
Why Heather Hansen chose Kaanapali
Coming from an area that offers hiking, biking, water skiing, snow skiing - and jaw dropping beauty, we were a bit picky about where to spend our vacation time. After numerous trips to Maui, we were hooked and couldn't imagine spending time anywhere else. On one of our vacations, I went for a walk on the ocean shore of West Maui and happened by the Mahana. I couldn't get over how big the windows were, and how close the buildings were to the beach. The next time we returned we stayed there and never turned back. As Maui vacationers prior to our purchase, we had experienced the island the same way many of our guests would. The Kaanapali area offers a tremendous variety of beaches, proximity to Lahaina, the famous boardwalk, the most amazing sunsets and the glorious views of Lanai and Molokai. There are many reasons why we chose the Mahana. The property offered the type of relaxed feel - not one of a big resort where you have to set your alarm to get your spot by the pool! It is close enough to wonderful dining the resort areas offer, but far enough away that you have choices. Subway, locally owned fish tacos, pizza, fish market, sushi, farmers market and groceries that are frequented by locals as often as tourists. But the VIEW from the condo is the #1 reason! Imagine watching the whales from your living room or lanai while you sip your morning coffee, or evening pina coloda. I'm not kidding!! This is what sealed the deal. There are not many properties on Maui with this kind of view. No 'partial ocean views'. You will find only 100%, straight on, in your face OCEAN!! We now own two units. Our first purchase was in 2011 of this two bedroom home on the 9th floor. And most recently the purchase of a 1 bedroom on the bottom floor (listing #3579847) - both the magnificent views from the 9th floor and the wonderful access a bottom floor unit grants.
What makes this Condo unique
Our family loves to be comfortable. And we love beautiful things. When you are spending hard earned money for a vacation, you should expect the place you are staying to be cared for and designed well. How do you FEEL when you are in a space? Are the colors soothing? Is it clean? Are the pillows and sheets luxurious? Is the bed spread 100 years old? YUCK!!! We pay attention to these things and take your trust in us very seriously. When you stay in our Maui home, you will be provided with everything you can think of to make your vacation a special one. From provided beach chairs and towels to spices in the cupboard!

Immaculate, excellent location, beautiful view, responsive and helpful owner!!
Wow, what can I say about the condo. and Maui in general. We have visited a lot of islands including Grand Cayman, Turks & Caicos, St. Croix and others and Maui has to be at the top of our list. The different terrain, luxury, food, sites and sounds are unrivaled!!!
First the condo. Heather was excellent to deal with and takes great pride in providing a top notch accommodation/condo. The furniture, bedding, cabinetry, counters, etc... were all top notch and what you would find in a 5-Star resort. In addition, had all the other details you would hope to find from bottle openers, to small and large coolers to use at the beach, to beach chairs, to beach toys and ball, etc.... The only thing we ended up buying were a few groceries for the week. The location along the boardwalk was great for morning strolls as well as being on the beach was awesome.
Location of the condo. We had never visited Maui, but loved that part of the island and were literally in Lahaina (about 15 minutes away) every day to go the Marina, awesome restaurants, etc.... In addition, you are just 15 minutes the other way to a deserted part of the island which we loved to explore.
Favorite restaurants: Duke's, Fleetwood in Lahina, Paia Fish Market in Lahina for lunch, Longhi's in Lahina for breakfast, Monkeypod, Pacific'O Lahina for dinner, Bad Ass Coffee for coffee and many others.
Favorite activities: Road to Hana, Helicopter over Maui with Hawaii Helicopter, many beaches to snorkel and see sea turtles, small boat to Whale Watch, walking along the boardwalk, exploring with Jeep Wrangler (recommend) on the roads.
We had an absolute blast and would recommend the condo. and Maui big time!
The Condo was amazing. Everything you would want for a wonderful vacation. Heather was so helpful and responsive every time we had a question.
We loved our stay.
Absolutely perfect Hawaiian Condo on Maui
Often web photographs, even beautiful ones taken at just the right moment, do not fully describe the condo itself, whether that be good or bad. However, in this case, not only were the web photos beautiful but the condo itself was even more spectacular. We found the location, the layout, the comfort and the surrounding environment to be perfect. Shopping is nearby, the waves flowing on the sandy beach just below the open balcony is breathtaking, and the condo is fully stocked with needed items. As with most of you, my wife and I have stayed in many condos over the years; some have been good, some not so good. This specific condo was as good or better than the best we previously experienced. As an added plus, the owner was friendly and personable, and treated us as true guests in her home. She is unquestionably the easiest person we have worked with on any condo rental. The photos are great but, believe me, the actual experience is even more amazing. As you can tell, I highly recommend this oceanfront condo on Maui.
This condo has been beautifully renovated. It is well appointed, comfortable, quiet, and has spectacular views. A great place to relax and unwind. We love staying at the Mahana and I have to say this property has it all. Furniture is comfortable. I liked the fact that the owners had installed shades in the living room that blocked the afternoon sun but didn't obstruct the entire view out the windows. I know the Mahana gets the afternoon sun and you need to shut the window coverings or it can get very warm. We spent a lot of time watching the whales, turtles and even saw an endangered Monk Seal on this trip from the condo. There are hair dryers and flat irons in the bathroom. The walk-in showers are nice. Kitchen is well equipped. Easy access to the boardwalk for strolling along the beachfront. I would definitely stay here again!
This is my fourth stay at this beautiful condo and as usual, I can't begin to express in words how wonderful it is to stay here! The view when you walk in the living room is superb - words just can't tell you how beautiful the panorama is in front of you! I come to see the whales every year and there were so many of them this year!! You are able to enjoy them sitting right here!
The condo has everything you will need and more. They have a closet filled with beach chairs, tennis equipment, coolers, etc. Oh, beach towels - pretty much everything you might need for your adventures.
Heather is so nice and very kind to work with! She does everything she can possibly do to make your vacation an ideal one.
The location is perfect! You are close to Lahaina, Napili, Whaler's Village, pretty much everything is near by.
I can't wait until next year! Thank you, Heather, for sharing this special place!
Beautiful, Serene, Great views!!
The property was spotless, well appointed, had everything you needed. The whale watching and turtles right under our balcony were fantastic! We would come back and not change a thing!!
We loved having the resorts, boardwalk activity, and Dukes right next door but no noise! What a great way to relax and unwind! Proximity to other areas of the island and driving to excursions was also easy and not complicated.
Thank you for a great vacation!
