Perfect property for two couples
"The Mahana: This is our fourth time at the Mahana; first time in this unit. All units face the ocean. The Mahana also has a pool, hot tub, and communal BBQ's. Free parking for your rental car.
This unit: We stayed at this newly renovated property for a week with another couple. It has two master bedrooms with en suite bathrooms so the only argument is who gets the ocean side vs the mountain view. The kitchen is very well-supplied with cookware, utensils, and small appliances (all new) so in-home cooking was easy. The mgmt company, KBM, is very responsive. We really appreciated that our rental fee included a rental car (through Enterprise).
Dining: If you want fresh fish to prepare at the unit, there's a fish market a 12-minute walk away on Lower Honoapiilani Rd, and a produce store just another couple of minutes further. There is also a grocery store called The Times just a five minute walk away from the Mahana. Our favorite restaurants (all in Lahaina) are Mala Ocean Tavern, Star Noodle, Kimo's, and Aloha Mixed Plate.
Recreation: You cannot swim directly in front of the Mahana but can just a couple of minutes walk down the beach although surf was a little rougher than I'm comfortable in. The best beach area is at Black Rock with great snorkling and swimming, but you'll need to drive/park to get there. The unit has a couple of boogie boards, beach chairs, and an umbrella among other things. If Willie K is performing at Kimo's (check the calendar) he's a must-see amazing musician.
We would not hesitate to stay here again. If you book, you will not be disappointed."
