Amazing penthouse condo!!

  • 5 of 5

We came back to Maui to celebrate our 10 year anniversary. We stayed in another Mahana unit when we got married here and fell in love with the area. So happy to have found this penthouse studio! It is hard to put in to words how wonderful this condo is....the accommodations, view, and location are the best. It is tastefully decorated and the owners provide everything but food. At Mahana, you are away from the busy/touristy resorts and this condo offers the utmost in privacy. The only thing you hear are the waves crashing. The bed is so comfortable. The only thing that will get you up in the morning is the smell of your coffee brewing and the draw to go sip it out on the lanai. There is a nice pool area which we never found too busy. There were always lounge chairs available by the pool and also on the grassy areas just outside the gate. We preferred the area outside the gate to get more of the ocean breeze. Doug and Elizabeth provide many good food/activity suggestions, but do not hesitate to speak to the locals if you are looking for something in particular. We guarantee that you are not going to want to leave at the end of your stay! We will never book another condo and would likely adjust our dates of travel slightly in order to stay in this one.

Fabulous Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We SOOO loved our stay! My husband and I came to Maui to celebrate our 30th anniversary and we're so glad we chose this condo for our 5 night stay! Coming out of the elevator was jaw dropping enough, but walking into our room, I couldn't help but clap with glee. The condo was just as beautiful as I had hoped and the was breathtaking! Our first walk out on to the lanai, we were greeted by sea turtles below us and whales out in front of us. We felt so blessed! What a treat and such a GREAT start to our wonderful stay. Sunsets from the lanai each evening were so enjoyable that we kept cancelling our dinner plans! It truly was a magical stay. We loved the location. So convenient! Doug was wonderful and so helpful. The condo had everything we needed and more. And we so appreciated the 2 sets of binoculars!! No fighting over seeing the whales!!! Thank you, so much for everything. We will remember this trip forever and we will be back!!

Amazing space, amazing location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here while visiting Maui. The condo was perfect - it has beautiful views, it was comfortable and clean, and the owners provided various conveniences for our stay. The condo itself is close to the grocery store, has a nice pool and barbecue area. I would not hesitate to recommend this to anyone, and if we are able to find our way back, we will definitely look to stay here again!

Can't ask for much better

  • 5 of 5

Checking out tomorrow morning after a fantastic 5 day stay. No need to duplicate what was said before...condo has great views and is very comfortable. I will add that I am a stickler about cleanliness and rarely feel comfortable in another place outside of home. Well, Doug's place is spotless and he spares no expense in making sure everything is thought of. How many condo owners make sure the place is stocked with detergent, cooking spices, pool toys, etc.? He even has a drawer full of books and magazine rack! Computer, TV with netflix, washer and dryer...this guy has thought of everything. My wife and I are leaving in the morning for one of the big hotels on Kaanapali beach and i wish we had rented this condo for longer instead. Will definitely stay here in the future.

Amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this fantastic condo for one week. We were so sad when we had to leave. This was a celebration trip of our 10 year anniversary, and it was our first time to Maui. We loved watching whales and boats from the lanai as well as people out enjoying the water on paddle boards, kayaks, kite board and wind boards. Almost everything we needed was provided. The bed was really comfortable, and I loved the instant hot water in the shower. The grills on the property are great, but get there early so you don't have to wait for a burner to become available. Parking is tight, so I'd recommend renting a small car. The reservation process and check-in was super easy. This was our first time renting a condo and Doug patiently answered all our questions, provided detailed information and even some recommendations. Java Jazz is across the street and we had an excellent breakfast there one day. Duke's is right next door and is also excellent. There is a Times Market across the street for groceries. An ABC store isn't very far north either and they have a small deli inside. The southern end of Ka'anapli and Lahaina were only a few minutes away, and Napili and Kapalua weren't far either. Maybe 15-20 minutes from everything on the west side. I think we mention to each other at least once a day how much we miss Maui!
