Where do I start? I have to admit I was somewhat hesitant to expose this gem, but in the spirit of Ohana, here we go.
The online listing is 100¬curate and Heather is a super, super host. Very easy and prompt communication made the entire process a breeze.
The unit was the cleanest of any unit we’ve ever stayed in. The attention to cleaning detail was present upon entering. The primary room was amazing with views to the islands and the black out shades were a great touch the days we slept in. The secondary room has great views of the mountains and the coastline. We used the kitchen for breakfast and snacks as we ordered dinner in or went out. However, it was well stocked.
This was our first stay on this side of the island as we’ve previously stayed in Wailea. We very much enjoyed the breezes which made sitting on the beach or by the pool very enjoyable. I also cycled the west Maui loop and the proximity to bike rental was great. We also had the pleasure of meeting a part time resident in the building who had a great recommendation for a spot to eat in Naili Bay.
Honestly, I could go on and on. The location and Heather make this a must book spot. It is truly an amazing value.
Our family of 4 had a wonderful stay in this beautiful condo. The views from this condo are breathtaking. Loved waking up each morning seeing the beautiful ocean and loved watching the beautiful sunset each night.
The place is spacious and had everything we needed, just needed to pick up some groceries and we were set. My family and I were very comfortable. Even my teenagers (13 & 15) loved staying here, they both gave 2 thumbs up and not their usual “meh” response to everything.
Loved that we were so close to the beach and we were able to see sea turtles. It was also great that we can walk to Duke’s and have lunch or dinner when we didn’t want to cook.
Heather, the owner, was great. Responds quickly to any questions I had. And thanks to her detailed info on things to do and restaurant recommendations.
This was one of the best relaxing vacations we’ve had in a long time.
This was amazing amazing stay at Maui. The location was perfect near to their best sea shore and Duke's beach house restaurant. Place was pristine and communication from Heather was great. I would give her 5.000000000000 stars. Every single details, every single needs, are available in-house to use without spending money for it. We loved local fruits and it was right across the street!!! Sea is at your door steps and 9th floor makes it perfect to see 360 degrees for mountains, sea, trees and pools!! We can't wait to visit Maui and stay here again....
Everything about this place is great. Booking the place was easy, Heather made sure we had all information leading up to our trip. The condo itself is the most beautiful condo I have ever stayed in. The views are so awesome, they seem fake. The location is perfect, the check in and check out procedures are super easy. It is by far our families favorite vacation ever and it is because of the condo. If you can book this place, trust me you will be happy.
This condo was beautiful! This impeccably clean condo was very roomy and comfortable for our family of 4. The floor to ceiling windows provided a wonderful backdrop as we enjoyed spotting tons of sea turtles! We truly enjoyed every minute and will definitely be back!
This condo is so beautiful. Lots of windows which gave you great views of the water. Saw turtles from the condo. Walked to Duke's for breakfast almost every day. Best place to stay on Maui!!
Everything was perfect - the location, the views, the furnishings & amenities in the unit.
The Mahana was a wonderful vacation haven, the unit was beautifully decorated and very clean. The views from the unit were breathtaking - I could never tire of looking at the beautiful blue ocean or the spectacular sunsets each evening. I appreciated the recommendations Heather provided - we managed to experience most of them…my favorite was Makena beach, I felt like I could reach out and touch Lanai. It was a fabulous vacation and staying at the Mahana provided us a great central location with plenty of comfortable space for my family.
This is a beautiful property with the best views. Would stay here again without a doubt.
This property is beautiful, looking out the windows miles of amazing views from every room . perfect place to relax and near everything.
People watching, turtles sunsets Duke's Restaurant near by.
Thanks Heather for being so responsive through the whole process.
We loved staying in your condo what away to spend my 70th birthday the perfect celebration.
This is a beautiful condo with amazing views. We saw lots of sea life while looking out the windows. It was just an elevator ride to walk out on to the beach. Everything was clean and Heather was easy to get in touch with. It's well situated being close to Lahaina and lots of great restaurants.
The only complaint I might have is that the countertops in the kitchen and bathroom were high quality that can be damaged if water stays long on the surface. You are asked to wipe it continually. And although I appreciate the attention to using high-quality materials, I don't want to think of those kinds of things while on vacation. It definitely wouldn't stop me from staying there again though. Loved it overall!
The condo is beautiful, the views breathtaking. It was very quiet. We will certainly stay again.
The pictures do not do this property justice. This was our 5th trip to Maui, all perfectly timed during whale season. We’ve stayed all over the island but this condo cannot be beat. I can’t imagine we’ll ever want to stay anywhere else. From our balcony, we saw hundreds of whales breaching and flapping, so many turtles and fish, and even an eel!
Heather was a total gem and didn’t even mind my texting her questions that she’d already answered in the check-in paperwork we received.
I can’t say enough wonderful things about this property and I can’t wait for us to come back. Pure magic is right.
We immensely enjoyed our time in Kaanapali at Heather's beautiful condo. Even with so much to do in Maui, we enjoyed just as much whale watching from the floor-to-ceiling windows in the living area; the binoculars provided are an amazing touch.
Heather is communicative, friendly and accommodating. We cannot recommend her or her place enough.
Outstanding unit. Totally enjoyed the stay with only one issue. The extreme noise from the unexpected repair work on the building caused us to leave the unit for several hours in each of three days. Heather was extremely cooperative and helpful. We will keep this unit at the top of our list for future visits to Maui.
This was the perfect place for our stay on Maui! We came to Maui this time of year specifically to see whales and we sure did!! From the huge window and balcony on the 9th floor you have a perfect spot to watch non-stop action!! Words can not describe how happy we were. The condo had everything and more for us! Really love having the coolers for packing picnics on the road to Hana. The food truck park nearby was convenient as well. The owners were easy to deal with and offered a ton of great ideas for things to do!!
Heather was wonderful and the property was better than described. Best vacation rental we have ever stayed at.
This was my family's 3rd time at the Mahana. First time renting a 2 bed/2 bathroom as we have 2 children. Heather had wonderful communication before our trip as the construction at the Mahana was delayed and would continue during our stay. When we arrived we saw the construction equipment and it was visible on the hallway/walkway to the front door. But it was not disruptive during our stay and we don't look much at the walkway near the front door.
The condo was beautiful, nicely decorated and furnished. The kitchen was well equipped and had plenty of cooking utensils, pots, pans and glasses/cups to use. Plenty of space in the living room and dining area. The main bedroom bed was very comfortable and laid out well. Very nice furniture. The main bathroom had a great, custom large shower. The 2nd bedroom was good size for both of my sons with very nice full bathroom. That room had great windows with mountain views. Having the end unit with the extra windows was wonderful. Full ocean and beach views almost everywhere you looked. The large window near the kitchen was so nice too, lots of natural light. Nice TVs in all rooms with full cable line up.
Natural stone countertops in kitchen and bathroom. Custom cabinets too. Very nice upgraded unit, you won't be disappointed! We enjoyed many family activities as it was my 8 year old son's first trip to Maui. We enjoyed a Luau, parasailed at Kaanapali beach, drove to the blowhole past Kapalua, went on the Atlantis submarine in Lahaina, we enjoyed the food trucks very near the condo, we used the BBQ's one night also. Thank you!
Amazing view especially with the end unit looking south all along the beach. Beautiful sunset views from almost anywhere in the unit. Very clean and great host
I cannot explain the awe I felt literally every morning when I walked out into the living area and got to see the view from this place. I would just stand there in front of the giant windows looking over the water and drink my coffee.
If you are planning on experiencing Maui and actually going to different beaches, attractions, restaurants, etc, you should ABSOLUTELY stay in this condo. It does have a nice pool and hot tub, but the pools at the resorts are on a totally different level. We aren't that kind of family and we would rather spend our time in and around Maui rather than at the pool... no judgement to anyone here
That said, I cannot say enough good about this place. It is exceptionally decorated, amazing amazing amazing views, great furniture, owners were delightful, basically literally on top of the beach, comfortable beds and linens, and a closet full of beach stuff that you will absolutely need but most likely not be able to bring. BTW, if you want the sandals in there, that was my donation, they're all yours!!! =) Seriously, this closet was SUPER helpful.
If I could go back to Maui regularly I'd gladly stay here again and again. Well worth it!
The views! The turtles below! This unit was spotless, quiet, beautifully decorated, well appointed and overall heavenly! Photos do not do justice. Heather was more than helpful as a host. My husband and I and 2 11 year old boys just could not have been more pleased with our stay. Would recommend this unit to even the most discerning of friends.
This property has amazing views. When sitting by the windows you feel like you are on a cruise ship, all you see is water. It has great views of the beach and beach walk.
Accommodations are exactly as pictured and very comfortable. Unit has everything you need. I highly recommend this property and owner is so nice.
We enjoyed our stay. Nice location, beautiful views. Kitchen was top notch. Close to everything we wanted to do. Thank you.
The best place we ever stayed at
Beautiful unit with fantastic view and location.
Our stay was truly magical. As our kids are getting to the age where they are beginning their own lives, we wanted a trip that we all could enjoy as a family. This place did the trick! We enjoyed the entire experience and the home was the icing on the cake. It was clean and modern, styled to the max with every amenity we could ever ask for in one place. It was centrally located with lots of closely restaurants and food trucks. It was right on the beach. Parking was easy. Heather has every item you could ever need for beach days. The kitchen is amazing. The beds were so comfortable. But above all else....the view is breathtaking. I found myself looking out the windows most of the time we were in the unit. We truly enjoyed ourselves.
The only drawback was the construction going on during our stay and the lanai view was somewhat affected. We were gone most of the daytimes, so it wasn't too big of a problem.
Heather was a dream to work with and really professional. I will be recommending her place to all my friends. You will not be disappointed if you decide to stay here, too.
Great property. The views were insane. We watched sea turtles and manta rays from the windows. Heather was great. There was construction while we were there, but she was extremely communicative in advance and responsive during our stay. Would highly recommend!
Our stay at Heather's VRBO was more than perfect. Condo has the best views - trust me, pictures given here do not do justice to this beauty. We are really thankful to the host for making this one of our most memorable stay. Condo has views from every window around, it's right on the lovely Kaanapali beach. Once we entered this place everyone in family just wanted to stay indoors.. Heather has furnished it so well and each room looks like it has been showcased in some magazine. Awesome choice of colors and simply put I wish I had such condo of my own :) I did not want to leave the place ever LOL.
Alright, so facilities at building were A grade - check-in was simple, Heather was in touch over VRBO chat, Buildings are located in famous Kaanapali area and super accessible from shops, restaurants etc. Giant Monkey pod trees covered whole parking lot with shade and palm trees as tall as 9th floor - made this place a canopy top experience. There was a concierge downstairs for any information required ... There is a lovely swimming pool and jacuzzi facing sea downstairs which we enjoyed every evening after watching sunset. Apartment has everything one can need - kitchen is well equipped.. We brought fresh fruits from road fruit-stands and ate after morning coffee sitting in Balcony. There is 180 degree view of turquois beach and 2 gorgeous islands of Lanai and Molokai with cloud forming over top every evening. We also saw a large rainbow between 2 islands making it picture perfect on last day. We went to sleep listening to ocean waves every night and woke up with view of calm ocean. We saw sunset from the lanai or went downstairs on the beach to celebrate evening view.. we saw turtles and 2 small reef sharks (not a threat to human) around reef at late evening. There is wonderful resort next door so crowd was decent and many children and young couples were seen on the beach. Snorkeling opportunities were right at the doorstep and we made the best of our time.
Black Rock beach is 5 minute drive away, one can even walk to it using beach since it is visible from even home. We booked paddle board lesson, surfing lesson at Kaanapali beach hotel - for really good price and they provided fun coach for activities. Snorkeling at Black Rock beach was an experience - we saw large turtles swimming around us and colorful fishes and cliff jumpers.
We loved our stay and would definitely go again and stay here.
Thanks Heather for sharing your home with us.
The condo is all that is pictured and more. Beautiful, clean, comfortable…and the views are spectacular. Location of the condo was perfect…quick walk and Dukes was right there. Turtles everyday could be seen from our patio. Heather was beyond accommodating. Not one negative, I highly recommend staying here.
The views were spectacular, the Property was super clean and very comfortable! It definitely exceeded our expectations in our family loved our experience here!
Great host, beautiful place! Had everything we needed and more!!! Beautiful sunset! Hoping we get to come back to stay here!!
LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!!!!!
Absolutely beautiful, well-kept property with stunning ocean, beach and boardwalk views!!! Heather was also a gracious host! The condo was spacious, clean and well supplied with just about everything needed to enjoy a fun-filled day at the beach! My family and I enjoyed an amazing vacation on the breathtaking island of Maui!!!! Would without hesitation book this property again!
The first thing you will notice is the views - they are truly extraordinary and the photos online don't even do them justice! The corner unit really maximizes the vistas from many angles and the unit was full of light all day. Turtles were often seen swimming in the shallows just below us. I can only imagine this place during whale season!
The condo itself is in excellent condition and is provisioned with everything you can think of to be comfortable and efficient. Heather was quick to respond to any questions prior to our visit and was an excellent host. We would definitely return to this property.
A piece of paradise. Such a beautiful, comfortable place to stay. Clean, elegant, and relaxing. We spent hours in front of the window watching turtles swim and enjoyed our quick walk to calm, excellent snorkeling. You thought of everything we needed and more. Thank you!
Amazing place with fantastic views. Beach right downstairs. Close to everything. The host was very helpful.
The entire experience from placing the order to check out was seemless, easy and far beyond better than any other vacation rental we’ve enjoyed. The condo is a slice of heaven, exactly as advertised, and so beautiful it almost made it hard to want to leave for our excursions! It’s well equipped, clean, comfortable and beautifully and thoughtfully designed and decorated. Although the bathroom is a little small and there is no tub, it didn’t matter. The condo has a very nice hottub and it is all steps away from the ocean. Heather was so nice and attentive to our questions and even had batteries delivered to us to operate the remote control fans despite my offer to replace them. We look forward to becoming regulars although it’s clear this is a very popular place so we may have to wait a while for another vacancy! Mahalo!!!
This condo was amazing. We have been to Maui 3 other times and the view from this condo can’t be beat. The condo is fully equipped with everything you need!!!
Beautiful condo, furnishings and location. Corner unit and the view was amazing! Very comfortable, quiet. We stayed here for 5 nights and then went to the Four Seasons for 3 nights. We were busy and adventurous, so much to explore and see! Such a fun vacation. We will definitely rent this condo again.
This property was a dream vacation. Steps from the beach and beautiful condo.
Located on a wonderful part of the island. Property is slightly tired but with nice amenities--tennis, swimming pool, and more. Most rewarding from the apartment was the sunset, views of the ocean, the island of Lanai and Molokai and the sound of the ocean. Easy access to the beach and boardwalk!
