About the property

Studio Condo with Full Kitchen and Private Lanai


The Mahana is an Oceanfront condo resort on the northern end of Kaanapali Beach, with an authentic Old Hawaiian feel and mature landscaping. The tree canopy along the entrance to The Mahana gives it a romantic and relaxing ambiance. It is 50 feet from the Ocean and all condos have private glass balconies, allowing for amazing views of Lanai and Molokai. The location on Kaanapali Beach is perfect for sunbathing, snorkeling, or just relaxing at the pool. There is a scenic beach walk that takes you to Black Rock and Whaler's Village. We don't have a restaurant at The Mahana, but Duke's is next door at Honua Kai and there is a great selection of restaurants a short walk away, as well as Times Market and Farmer's Market.

Be the first guests to enjoy this beautifully updated condo! Being on the TENTH FLOOR, it is high above the palm trees, allowing for the BEST VIEWS ON MAUI!!! Floor to ceiling windows for unobstructed views the moment you walk through the front door! It is perfect for whale-watching from December through April, and the Ocean is so clear that you can see turtles swimming below.

Just imagine waking up to the gentle Ocean breeze and listening to the waves from the most comfortable King sized bed. We have a full kitchen to fix breakfast and enjoy it on the lanai. The bathroom has a tile shower and separate dressing area to get ready and enjoy the day. There is also a full sized LG washer and dryer for your convenience.

About Louis Trinh

Hi, thank you for taking the time to read our webpage. My wife and I, along with our four kids, live in the suburbs of Atlanta, Georgia. I work at a hospital near us, and my wife, Kristine, takes care of the household. Kristine is Hawaiian, and when we go back to visit family, we usually stay at a hotel. We normally visit Maui twice a year, and since we have outgrown hotel rooms, it just made sense to buy a condo with great amenities so that we feel like we ARE on vacation. We take a lot of pride in keeping The Mahana condo perfect and our guests happy. Our condo is filled with amenities to make sure that you are comfortable, and will happily do everything we can to accomodate your needs.

Louis Trinh purchased this condo in 2014

Why Louis Trinh chose West Maui

The VIEWS!!! Its second to none. The Mahana has a great history and is a very well-maintained resort. This side of Kaanapali Beach is quiet, has great views of Lanai and Molokai, and you can snorkel right on our beach. Relax poolside and take in the sunset, its very peaceful. From December to April, you can catch whales playing in the Ocean.

What makes this condo unique

Recently renovated in July 2015 with all new furniture and a beach flair, stainless steel GE appliances, artwork by local Maui artist, fresh paint, and new electronics. With comfortable linens, HDTV programming, and the utmost privacy, there is no reason to leave the condo. The Mahana has a pool and spa, tennis court, shuffle board, free wifi, and an Activities Desk in the Lobby to help plan your activities.

Really is the Best View on Maui!!

  • 5 of 5

From the instant I made the reservation, Louis was in contact with all of the information I needed (and then some). He is SUPER responsive, which I love because it means less stress during planning!

Arrival and entry were painless, and the Mahana itself is lovely. When you step into the condo, instinctively the first thing you do is walk straight to the sliding glass door of the lanai and open it so see your view. That view, along with the sounds of the waves crashing, started our vacation off right. The condo is well stocked, and I appreciated the little touches that made it feel like home. The location is great (just a short drive to Lahaina, where the action is) and there were enough stores and restaurants within walking distance to get us by when we didn't feel like driving.

My husband and I have stayed at some nice places before, but none match the quality and view of this condo! When we would explain to other visitors on our excursions about our view, they said they regretted choosing the hotels that they did. Many places can offer you a view, but no other place can offer you THIS view! Stay here!

Perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

This unit was exactly as advertised. Probably one of the best views around, and everything in the unit was in tip top shape. Also, Louis was a pleasure to deal with, extremely prompt in every response. Doug & Ann

Beautiful views

  • 4 of 5

Awesome place to stay. The views will not disappoint! The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed. Louis was great to work with from the minute we booked the room. The dryer did not work after we arrived. Louis responded immediately but unfortunately a part had to be ordered so we were unable to use it during our stay. Would highly recommend staying in this unit. Wish we could go back next week!

Owner's Response: Aloha Martin, we're so glad that you and Connie loved Maui and The Mahana! Thanks for extending your vacation for two more've traveled a long way and deserve those extra days to relax and explore the island with your friends. I apologize for the dryer not working during your stay. I'm glad that we have a reliable repairman who quickly diagnosed that the problem was a malfunctioning motherboard. Who would have thought a one year old dryer would need a new brain? I appreciate your patience with it all, as everything ordered from the mainland takes a week (even rush ordered) to arrive on Maui. Our dryer is now up and running again, and hope that the other appliances will be more reliable :) We're glad that you were comfortable at The Mahana. It's a nice, quiet and well maintained resort with a great oceanfront pool/hot tub area. We want our guests to be happy, so we've stocked the condo with all the necessities for a great vacation, including comfortable linens, full kitchen and housewares, beach chairs, cooler and even guidebooks :) I appreciate you writing this review and hope we keep in touch for your next trip back to Maui. Tomorrow works too!

Best location on Maui

  • 5 of 5

First a word about the owner. We have rented a few times with VRBO and have always had a good experience so far but Louis is by far the most attentive owner we have had. It seemed like it didn't matter what time we contacted him, he was very prompt at getting back to us. From the very beginning it was apparent that our satisfaction was of utmost importance to him. Thank you Louis.

This was our second time at the Mahana and absolutely love the location on the island. The building is close to the water that water is all you see from your room. Absolutely great to listen to the waves and sleep so soundly all night long. Speaking of sleep, the bed is very comfortable. The room it's self is beautifully decorated and stocked with all items you could want. There are body boards, beach chairs and umbrella, cooler and towels. Dukes restaurant is just a short walk and if you prefer to cook your own meals there is a full service grocery store just across the street. There are also several BBQ's on property that are cleaned on a daily basis.

The next time we return to Maui we will certainly be contacting Louis again and staying at the Mahana. Aloha!
