Welcome to Paradise at Mahana 517, the most direct oceanfront property on Kaanapali Beach! Located mid-level on the 5th floor, you can truly live the beach while still enjoying complete privacy and stunning panoramic views from the floor-to-ceiling windows and lanai. Literally steps from the sand, you will enjoy spectacular views and warm ocean breezes from both the living room and master bedroom. The spacious and comfortable master bedroom is oceanfront with amazing views and opens completely to the lanai, a rarity on Maui, where most bedrooms are located in the back of the condo. The open panoramic views from every corner allow you to fully enjoy the scenic beauty of the coral reefs known for great snorkeling, and to view whales, sea turtles, and other marine wildlife right from your living room and lanai.

Beautiful Italian travertine tile throughout this spacious and airy one-bedroom makes this property light and bright. Modern tropical decor also further distinguishes this property. New dual-pane sliding glass doors from the living room and master bedroom to the lanai provide for quiet sleeping at night. There are new rattan ceiling fans in both the living room and bedroom and custom sunscreen window treatments in the living room that maximize your view while still blocking out afternoon sun. The unit comfortably sleeps four people, with a king size bed in the master and 8” of memory foam in the queen sleeper sofa. The living room features a 60” HD flat screen TV and the bedroom includes a 43” HD flat screen TV. Both feature a TiVo DVR with smart TV functions, with Netflix included. The condo has air conditioning and includes a private washer and dryer. Beach towels, beach chairs and umbrella, cooler, binoculars for whale watching and tennis racquets are also provided for your vacation pleasure.

The Mahana offers all the amenities of a luxurious condominium resort: a heated oceanfront pool and jacuzzi, shuffle board, a large private grassy area with lounge chairs overlooking the Pacific, a private tennis court, BBQ area, ATM, computer terminals and coffee/snack bar on-site. Wi-Fi is available in the condo and throughout the complex. Secure complimentary parking in the convenient lot below and no resort fees are added to your stay. Discounted on-site concierge service is available in the lobby for great island activities including snorkeling, surfing, sunset cruises, luaus, theater shows, helicopter tours, and sailing trips. The Mahana offers a quiet and relaxing tropical oasis getaway, centrally located between Lahaina and Kapalua with golf just minutes away, and nearby restaurants, bars, grocery store, and farmers market all within walking distance. The Mahana at Kaanapali is rated as one of the top condominium resorts in Hawaii by Travel and Leisure Magazine and Kaanapali Beach has repeatedly topped CNN's list of 'America's Best Beaches'.

Awesome beach location: saw sea turtles cleaning the reef right below our balcony, fabulous sunsets! Older unit but well maintained. Nicely appointed rooms with all the comforts of home and an excellent bed. Stocked kitchen with spices, cooking oil, and coffee/filters. Check out the Fish Market less than a 1/2 mile from the unit. Great cooked and fresh fish. Best poke! Excellent, quick response from the owner and management company. Definitely recommend.

Lars was great, we added a few days to the front of the trip, which created some confusion at the front desk, but we were able to work it out with help from Lars. Work being done as of Oct. 2022, should be done soon.

This property was very relaxing, comfortable & private! Listening to the waves made it feel like you were on a boat! This property had all a person would need & we even used the grills downstairs which were cleaned then mine at home!! The concierge's both Susan & Morgan were beyond fantastic & helpful!!! All this made for a very memorable trip & we will definitely be back!!! Aloha

You've probably read other people's reviews about how unreal the views are, and they're correct. The views are breathtaking, and you fall asleep and wake up to the sound of the waves on the beach. This is the resort to go to if you want something a little more secluded and less crowded. There aren't a lot of amenities, but we knew that going in. The beach is quite accessible and much less congested than other places of the island. Owner is very friendly and accessible. Thank you for allowing us to stay at your place!

This is a great condo. Lars is very attentive host. His check-in directions were very precise. Gorgeous views from the balcony and living room. Air conditioner worked great. Every appliance in the kitchen was present and functional. Bed was perfect: not too soft and not too hard. Everything was super clean. Lars had beach chairs, snorkeling equipment, a traveling cooler for us to use. Pool was heated, almost always empty. Jacuzzi was great. Many places to eat near the property. You need to walk a a few hundred yards to get to the swimmable beach, but we enjoyed the beach walk. Overall, we had a fantastic time and strongly recommend this place!

The property is very nicely appointed without much clutter, and we were very comfortable with accommodations with plenty of room for the two of us. Wonderful view from the lanai of the surfers, whales in the channel (even this late, in April!), and even the sunset at this time of year. We would certainly return on our next visit to Maui.

This condo was located in a great area to stay in Maui. Not too far/ too close to Lahaina. The fish market is to die for, the fish burrito & poke were amazing. the farmers market and deli were fabulous. Try the Haleakala smoothie. Lars, the owner was a great communicator and a huge help. As reviews state, He sends you a pdf of suggestions, however many are sadly out of date because of the effect covid has had on the islands.We read through the reviews about a pineapple upon entering but sadly I’m not sure they do this anymore. Upon entering, as photos show, the view is breathtaking. This alone sells this place. We saw multiple whales & it was mesmerizing over the week. However, 30 mins after entering, we began to see remnants of others. We found hairs In the fridge, on the toilet, all over the floor. We found various sand piles & the floor was sticky in spots. Many knobs were sticky, the walls had drips & handprints, & the remotes had crusted food on them. And dust, a lot of dust on the baseboards and generally all over the place. We struggled with whether to say anything. But then we saw the bugs. Smaller than ants but like a tan/ white mini ant, everywhere in the kitchen. I started spraying the disinfectant (thankfully left for us) everywhere. And the bathroom, Its old as stated in another review. But the lights were flickering. Then both screen doors to the beautiful view fell off and we couldn’t take it anymore so we wrote to Lars. Lars really stepped up and helped us immensely, he didn’t skip a beat. Although he did reference that no one had said anything about these things previously in reviews, so I thought it necessary to put them here. But also, There is only so much one can do as an offsite owner but Lars really did push everyone to help us immensely. He got maintenance & cleaners to come back to sweep, mop & clean drips & dust off of floor & baseboards. But We had to do a few loads of laundry & wash an initial load of dishes because previous guests stowed many Dirty pots & dishes. The condo definitely still needs/needed a deeper clean. Also updated/comfy seAting as we found the couch and chairs stained and uncomfortable. We covered them witha sheet to sit. Just our two cents, but we thought it necessary to let people know this place is gorgeous, a great location, a wonderful owner but has some ongoing issues. The pool/sauna were great & parking a breeze. Lars is a great & helpful person & we wouldn’t hesitate to book with him again.
