You will love the spectacular views from this beautiful, one bedroom, level entry, oceanfront condominium located within the Aston Mahana at Kaanapali and adjacent to Maui's beautiful Kaanapali Beach.

The quiet surroundings and manicured tropical gardens at the Mahana at Kaanapali offer uncommon privacy, yet the activity of the Kaanapali Resort area is close by. The floor to ceiling windows in every room provide extraordinary vistas from every angle, 24 hours a day.

Mahana 118 has been beautifully remodeled with top of the line materials and design elements such as porcelain tile flooring throughout, a fully equipped kitchen with granite counter tops and stainless appliances, a large walk-in shower with hand-held shower head and pebble flooring. Two ceiling fans in the main living area add to comfort and reduce the need for air conditioning. Lined, woven wood draperies in the bedroom and living area provide privacy when desired and at night.

The comfortable California king size bed, with extra pillows and Hawaiian styled bedding will leave you relaxed and ready to enjoy your vacation in paradise.

The fantastic vista is an “infinity pool” like no other!

Step out of the condo and enjoy fantastic snorkeling or walk for miles along the beautiful sandy beach. A private gate from The Mahana provides easy access to the boardwalk paralleling Kaanapali's famous sugar-sand beach.

About Sandy

I have been managing rentals at the Mahana since 1991 and have spent a great deal of time in the area. Personally managing four units, allows me to providing prompt, personal service to each guest and my on-island experience is a definite plus.

I have been working with the owners since February 2014, managing Mahana 1014 for them. As the proud new owners of 118 they are dedicated to expanding their hospitality to this companion unit. I like working with them because they are committed to providing an attractive, comfortable vacation home where guests create their own special memories of their holiday on Maui. Their goal is to provide each guest with a memorable 5 star experience in a "home away from home".

I personally love the Mahana at Kaanapali and I am sure you will too.

Sandy purchased this condo in 2015

Why Sandy chose Lahaina

I love this location because it is right on the ocean, it is a very quiet property yet it is close to shopping, restaurants and activities. The five acres of tropical gardens which surround the Mahana are meticulously kept, and the building has been beautifully updated. There is a great walking trail that starts just beyond The Mahana's private access gate. It and goes for miles towards Lahaina, paralleling the beach. In between there are restaurants, shops, bars with tropical drinks and island specialty appetizers. Endless options for enjoying the tropical breezes and clear water abound: every water sport imaginable, snorkeling, sunset crises or just lazing on the beach.

What makes this condo unique

This unit is very special because it is on the ground floor, so if you are sitting by the pool, sunning yourself on the lounge chairs on the grass out front, or relaxing on the beach, it is extremely convenient to go back to the condo for a cold drink, a book, or anything else you may need. It is like having a private home, right on the beach.

I love the sunsets on the lanai and the fact that you can walk right out onto the beach at the front of the property. The BBQ areas are great, you can enjoy a sunset dinner without going out.

It is ideally located because it is near all the attractions of Kaanapali Beach and directly on the beach.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We stayed at Mahana 118 from January 27-February 12. It was our 4th return visit to 118. This is a beautiful condo just feet from the ocean. It is beautifully appointed and has everything you need. The manager and the owner are both readily available and helped within minutes when a problem arose. In my opinion, there is no more beautiful place in the world to have your morning coffee and evening dinner than the lanai of Mahana 118! Walk to the fresh fish market .5 miles and get the catch of the day for dinner. Swordfish and ono with soy, ginger marinade and caper wine butter are amazing grilled on the super clean gas grills at the Mahana. If you are into sushi, Miso Phat in Kahana is highly recommended. Duke's is a superb restaurant on the beach just a few steps on the boardwalk. Go to Paia for breakfast at Charley's and then go see the sea turtles at Ho'okipa beach. Talk to the amazing security staff at the Mahana and learn so much about the island. Walk the boardwalk to Whaler's and have a shaved ice and do some shopping. Walk the beautiful beach to black rock. The water is always warm. Mahana 118 is truly a hidden gem in the paradise of Maui. Immerse yourself in the culture and fall in love with Maui at Mahana 118!! Thank you Manager and owner for another unforgettable holiday!!

Spectacular views and all the comforts of home

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in Mahana 118!

It's so convenient being on the ground floor as we could just walk out onto the beautifully manicured grassy area that has views over the ocean into the sunset.

The lanai is perfect for morning coffee or sunset dinners. It is a very peaceful setting.

The unit is equipped with everything we needed, including beach chairs, umbrella and cooler. The beach is just steps away and the snorkeling is fantastic.

There are lots of great restaurants close by.

Absolutely the perfect week in paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Loved Mahana 118, one of our best experiences in Maui ever. It is the perfect location! It is a little off the beaten track but close enough to everything, including walking to Whaler's Village and once there, you are glad to be back. We brought lots of cloths for going out and spent most of dining on the lanai with beautiful views, sunsets and the crashing waves! The condo is beautifully decorated, all the amenities of home, steps to the beach, couldn't be more perfect. Fond memories and can't wait to return. Don't miss out on this spectacular home!

We wanted to be on the beach and we honestly couldn't have gotten any closer than Mahana 118. There really is no better sound than listening to the sound of the waves as you fall asleep! We loved being on the ground floor and having coffee on the lanai in the morning, walking right out on to the beach for a walk or an evening drink before heading out to dinner. The unit is beautifully decorated and has everything you could need including lawn chairs, beach towels and an ice chest. The beach walkway is right out the front door and we enjoyed walking down to Duke's and the Westin for drinks in the evening.

We will definitely be back!!
