Mahana at Kaanapali


Upon entering this west Maui condo, you are stopped in your tracks. You can hardly believe what you are seeing.

First, there is the view. Eight-foot-high and stretching along the entire ocean-facing front of the unit, the floor-to-ceiling windows are filled with a sweeping panorama of sea, sky, and islands. No Maui land in sight from your eighth-floor elevation. The azure Pacific Ocean is crystal clear and punctuated by gentle waves. Fluffy cumulus clouds cluster around the peaks of the neighbor islands of Lanai and Molokai, providing an inspiring backdrop for your sunrise and sunset watching. If your stay is between the months of October and May, you see tall, column-shaped blows from humpback whales in the Auau Channel between the islands. The entire scene is breathtaking.

When you have managed to pry your eyes from the view, more beauty awaits. The open floor plan of this home offers a spacious environment with large, light-filled rooms. From the waterfall edge of the quartz countertops, to the recycled sea glass of the light fixture, to the light gray porcelain tile underfoot—everything is sleek, contemporary, and tasteful. Against the walls’ white background, the blues and greens of the accent colors echo the vibrant hues visible through your windows. The furnishings are superior in every detail: a luxury sectional sleeper sofa, Italian leather swivel chair, shagreen & wood tables, aerial photographic art reflecting an image of Hawai`i, and a classic surfboard are just a few highlights.

Walking into the bedroom, you find a serene, beautiful space ideal for sheer relaxation. An upholstered king size bed features a puffy yet supportive mattress and decadent hotel collection bedding. The window treatment slides either from right-to-left or left-to-right, giving you the ability to adjust it to enjoy a full ocean view while relaxing in bed. A 65” smart television, ample closet and plenty of dresser storage add to your comfort.

The bathroom contains a large custom shower; a modern, free-form vessel sink; and glamorous beveled, backlit mirrors. Tranquil and lovely. Important from a practical viewpoint, the bathroom also holds your high-end washer/dryer laundry.

Enabling indoor-outdoor living in Maui’s unspoiled island Paradise, the ocean front private lanai is perfect. A dining table seating four guests and a comfortable sectional sofa allow for a variety of pursuits while enjoying the warm, sunny days and soft, cooler evenings. Observing the colorful schooling fish in the reef below is an endlessly fascinating activity, and enjoying a cocktail at sunset while watching the sun gradually sink below the horizon is an experience not to be missed.

The Mahana at Kaanapali Resort, perched on the water’s edge, is situated at the far north end of renowned Kaanapali Beach (once a royal sanctuary for the rulers of Maui). This magnificent white sand beach in front of the resort stretches three full miles to the south, with most of that span including a scenic boardwalk. Conveniently located near the shopping and restaurants of the community of Honokowai, the resort is immaculately clean and serviced by an industrious, helpful staff. The ocean-front swimming pool is surrounded by plenty of seating as well as BBQ grills and dining tables. The vintage Hawai`iana design scheme of the lobby—complete with plenty of koa wood, tikis, vintage art, and tropical colors—offers a refreshing contrast to the modern, Coastal décor of your condominium. Making the choice to stay here ensures you will be foregoing none of what has historically made Hawai`i Paradise, while at the same time enjoying every modern comfort and amenity.

In the Hawai`ian language the word, Mahana, means “warm.” How apt for this gorgeous condominium in its extraordinary setting. It provides the warmth of superior physical comfort, privacy, and beauty. Further, it offers the warmth of the Owners’ personal attention to every detail of the home in their quest to provide you with the vacation experience of a lifetime.

Do not miss the opportunity to indulge in this unique Hawai`ian retreat!
