About the property
- Half Baths0
- Minimum StayNone
Studio, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2
When you first open the door to your fourth floor unit, you are facing a wall of windows in your studio showcasing the panorama of the endless waves. To the left as you enter is a lovely bathroom with a floating glass sink on a granite counter. The other highlight of your bathroom is the walk-in river rock shower with a palm tree etched on the glass shield. Outside the door there is ample storage for your suitcases and belongings.
The granite island services the well-supplied and beautiful kitchen that includes a micro-convection oven and all the modern conveniences plus a washer and dryer.
The studio is spacious and fully equipped with a 42 inch plasma TV, a gorgeous burl wood desk and chair from Bali, and a brand new and exceptionally comfortable couch. The king Murphy bed provides the comfort of a regular bed while offering the living space normally found only in one bedroom units.
This property is extremely close to the water (about 40 feet!) and you can literally sit in the 4th floor unit or lie on your bed, out of sight of anyone on the ground, with the door and curtains fully open, enjoying the crashing waves on the beach, right below your unit. During humpback whale season you can sit on your large lanai and feast on the natural show right in front of you.
At the end of a quiet road, the Mahana offers serenity not found in the frenetic hotels at the other end of Ka'anapali Beach and yet it is still convenient to extraordinary dining, shopping, and activities.

This is a very well kept, well stocked room in a great location with a view that is tough to beat.
Watching whales and beautiful sunsets from the room contributes to it making it a a great stay!
Everything was perfect in this studio apt. at Mahana. Breakfast on the Lanai with the gorgeous ocean views, lovely walks on the Kaanapali Beachwalk directly next door, and great restaurants within walking distance. The apt. is fully stocked with everything you could possibly need and is very comfortable for 2 people. I miss falling asleep to the sounds of the ocean and waking up to that view!! We hope to go back to Mahana 412!!!
We really enjoyed our stay at Mahana! This was our first trip to Maui to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. The stay at this condo was one of highlights of our trip. The amenities were perfect for the two of us and we looked forward each day to sit on the lanai and watch the activities going on in the water and especially the whales! The communication with Sue was great. We hope to return to Maui in the future and will definitely stay at this condo again!!!
A wonderful vacation spot!
Although I’m writing this review on behalf of my daughter, I’m expressing her feelings by saying that this was a vacation of a lifetime for her! We were very fortunate to have found this beautiful condo to rent as a Christmas gift for my daughter and her husband! They had a delightful 3 week’s holiday and I received daily reports as to how perfect, well equiped and gorgeous this place was!
With its fabulous location, Mahana offers young or old people alike an amazing experience! Thank you Sue for your hospitality and superb service!
the view, the view, the view!
This studio was the perfect location for a comfortable and memorable Maui vacation. My husband and I went to Hawaii for a belated honeymoon, and we stayed in Sue's Mahana condo for 4 nights. We could have stayed for months. Although it is a studio, we had plenty of room. We loved the kitchen and the condo had all the creature comforts you could want. It also has beach chairs, beach towels, a cooler, and umbrella--literally everything you need! We had no idea how much we would use the washer and dryer. It was great to wash our dirty clothes after hiking instead of packing them dirty. The location is great too. Close to restaurant in Kaanapali and Lahaina. Walking distance to other resorts and restaurants, including Dukes. The hotel next door had a Luau you could attend. We booked a Molokini snorkeling trip with the local Expedia agent in the lobby of our building on a smaller boat which s. We spent most of our time soaking in the view on the porch! Sue was pleasant and easy to work with. We will definitely return and recommend the property to friends.
Perfect Location ~ ~ A Home Away From Home
If you are looking for a place to stay while on Maui, look no further! This beautiful studio apartment cannot be beat! Located on the beach in the Kaanapali area, this gem is fully furnished, thorougly appointed, and beautifully decorated! A fully equipped kitchen, washer/drier, and a balcony that overlooks the ocean. Doesn't get better than walking the beach in the morning. and raising a glass to the beautiful sunsets at the end of the day. A gift!
The Mahana is direct oceanfront, offering breathtaking views up and down uncrowded North Ka'anapali Beach in West Maui and across the gorgeous Pacific to the islands of Lanai and Molokai. The weather systems over the two islands create amazing sunsets you can enjoy from your lanai each evening. You will revel in the quiet luxury of the Mahana and yet still appreciate its proximity to restaurants, shops, and activities. You are just two miles from Whalers Village and four miles from Lahaina where you can shop, enjoy meals at first-class restaurants, or just go out for a night on the town.
For those who love to walk along the beach, the Mahana is perfect. You have the choice of walking about two miles to the Sheraton at Black Rock either along the beach or on the boardwalk. You can then continue your walk to Whaler's Village and then on to the Hyatt at the far end of the boardwalk. Along the way, you will pass wonderful oceanfront restaurants including world-famous Duke's and also Castaway's. Walking from the Mahana in the other direction, north, you have two oceanfront cafes within five minutes, one at the Ka'anapali Beach Club and also at Ka'anapali Shores.
There is great snorkeling right in front of the resort, plus an oceanfront pool, hot tub, shuffleboard court, and bbq grills that are cleaned daily.
The Mahana has four championship golf courses nearby and easy access to the Challenge at Manele on the island of Lanai from the Lahaina Pier via the Expeditions ferry.
Your Mahana unit blends seclusion with the convenience of being right across the street from the best grocery store in the area, Times Market, a snorkel shop, delicatessen, Mexican Restaurant, real estate office, coffee shop, "make-your-own-pancakes" restaurant, therapeutic massage, fish market, sub shop, Italian restaurant, fishing and tackle shop, and many more.
Rates & Availability
Additional information about rental rates
Before you make a reservation, please recognize that I book our units back-to-back where guests arrive in the afternoon of the morning other guests depart. If a guest chooses dates that are not back-to-back, then the goal is to leave a seven night space between bookings since that is what most people request. For example, please do not book 4 nights in the middle of 7 open nights. PLEASE EMAIL ME WITH ANY QUESTIONS BEFORE BOOKING. There are certainly times where I will take a reservation with a small gap, but I would like to discuss this with you before you book. When you make your reservation and pay your deposit, please include your cell number when asked for your phone. Although I take credit cards for the initial deposit, I would appreciate you sending a check for the final payment as this helps me keep the rates as low as possible. Your initial deposit made online will include a booking fee that goes straight to VRBO/HomeAway for making your reservation. If you are reserving 12 or more days, my faithful and wonderful housekeeper, Luretta, has asked that I add a mid-term cleaning of $45 to clean the unit and change the sheets and towels. I will add another mid-term cleaning for each additional week you rent, though these fees will be added after you make your reservation. I am excited about helping you make this the most wonderful vacation ever! Sue
