Our stay was terrific. Aside from the beauty and charm and all that Maui offers our Mahana rental was great. Clean and comfortable and well appointed. A couple of minor issues that would have been nice to knows going in would have been good though. Once we had communicated the issues, they were acknowledged and already going to be dealt with. Wouldn't hesitate to book there again! Thanks for the wonderful home for our vacation!

this property is amazing. This is the best condo we have stayed at in Hawaii. Very clean, unbelievably stocked with everything you need to prepare meals etc. Top of the line washer and dryer. The view is unbelievable and the location at the far right side is very quiet with little foot traffic in front of the condo. We will definitely be back!

This condo was perfect for our needs. The furniture was comfortable, including the bed. The bedding was so soft....we slept great. The water pressure in the shower was refreshing. We spent much time on the lanai watching the whales and sea turtles, enjoying the sounds of waves crashing and a perfect sunset view. The floor to ceiling windows in the living room and bedroom give a great unobstructed view of the Pacific. We've been on this property before and really like the privacy and low key vibe. The property has everything you could want. You aren't going to want to leave. We enjoyed walking every day on the beach or beach walk and to local restaurants (Duke's is a fave) most of which are open air or have outdoor seating. Parking is readily avaliable. The area feels very safe We initially had concerns about the location because of the fire, but it wasn't an issue. We were thanked for coming to Maui and supporting tourism.

As listed and so much more! We enjoyed coffee and cocktails on the lanai. The views of humpback whales and turtles never gets old. Holly has thought of everything to make your stay a wonderful one. We look forward to staying here again when we return to Maui.

Rating Details: The property manager was more than helpful. The vacation rental was very clean. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Beautiful condo, great views from balcony. Resort security very pushy and rude. We’re enjoying a glass of wine in the Jacuzzi around 8:00 PM, we were the only ones in the pool area. We were very quiet and just enjoying a nice relaxing night when the security man walked outside, walked around the Jacuzzi a couple of times looking at us, and then told us that we could not have glass at the Jacuzzi. I told him that it didn’t say anything on the spa rules about not having glass and he said you cannot have glass at the pool. I said OK he walked away for a few minutes and then came back and said it again you cannot have glass at the pool . I got out of the Jacuzzi and took the glasses inside the lobby. I walked up to the counter and asked if they had any plastic cups and they said no, then I overheard on the radio, the security guard calling the front desk telling him to watch us at the Jacuzzi. The security man came back out about an hour later and just hung around the pool area lingering and watching us. Very weird and uncomfortable. When you are staying at a resort where you are paying a lot of money, you should be able to enjoy yourself. If you are not causing a problem, this guy had a complete attitude.!!!!!

Enjoyed our place with front-row seats for whale watching. Both bedrooms were en suite, which was great for 2 couples. When a huge rainstorm flooded our unit, KBM found us a new place to stay (an upgrade) within hours.

My best friend and I enjoyed this condo.we had a very relaxing week just sitting and watching the whales from the condo. The condo was very clean and very well equipped with everything we needed, even a small sewing kit! I already booked my vacation for next year.

This unit exceeded my expectations. It was clean, had incredible views, was within walking distance to groceries, restaurants, shopping. The unit had EVERYTHING we needed, from dish soap and sponges to binoculars and beach chairs/umbrellas. The whales watching from the lanais was incredible, saw hundreds of whales during our stay, even watched them from bed! Saw sea turtles everyday, parking was easy, and it was quiet all the time. Just a short drive to Whalers Village which had excellent shopping and dining and the excursions offered exceeded my expectations. Will 100% be staying again.

Rating Details: The property manager was more than helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Mahana 718 is a beautiful condo that is oceanfront and high enough to view whales, turtles and in our case a Hawaiian monk seal. We had 2 small problems. The check in process was confusing. We were not familiar with the property. There are multiple towers on the property and no one attends any of the desks in the lobby of the property. The a/c in the condo is loud and runs most of the time. Other than these 2 problems, the condo was wonderful and we would stay again.

We had an amazing stay! Wonderful view (it's a wow!), beautiful decor, and clean. The condo is well stocked in the kitchen and the chairs/cooler/toys were great for our daily visits to the various beaches on Maui. Heather provided very helpful information in advance to prepare for our trip. This was our first vacation to Maui and it was a dream trip for our family - with two adult children. We would definitely recommend this condo and can't wait to return!

Just a perfect place. Everything clean and in great shape. Views galore. Communications with the property manager flawless. I kind of hate to review properties this good because I want to keep them a secret :) Stayed with myself, my wife and 2-15 year old daughters. Aloha, Walt

This property exceeded our expectations (which were already high based on the pictures and description). Sarah was responsive to any communication and great to work with. The condo was clean and comfortable, with every amenity that we wanted. Good beaches were an easy walk away and whale watching from the living room or lanai was phenomenal. We would definitely stay here again.

This was our first time staying in a condo on Maui. The condo is beautiful, with floor-to-ceiling windows as well as a spacious lanai. It is nicely decorated and very clean. We were very happy to spend our vacation there and hope to return. The host is very responsive and went out of her way to accommodate us when our flight was cancelled and rebooked at the last minute.

This was the best vacation I’ve ever been on! This condo was amazing! Seeing the whales from the deck was the highlight. Not to mention the sea turtles and the sea lion that came for daily visits in the beach. We can’t wait to come back to this gorgeous property! The walking path along the beach is right there. You really do not need to get back in the car for anything. Special thanks to Dayna for making our stay so enjoyable and stress free!

This unit is great! Floor to ceiling glass, clean, and modern. The area it’s in is also great. We saw Many whales every day from the unit. That being said it’s not cheap but you get what you pay for…. I recommend highly

We absolutely loved our stay at this oceanfront condo! The condo was well-equipped with everything we needed for a comfortable stay. It was spotlessly clean, and the decor was beautiful and modern. The oceanfront view was breathtaking, and we loved falling asleep to the sound of the waves. We watched whales and turtles from the lanai. What really stood out was how exceptionally stocked the condo was – from the kitchen to the bathroom, beach chairs, snorkeling gear, everything was provided, which made our stay so convenient. The location was perfect for exploring the island, and we enjoyed the nearby amenities. Holly made great recommendations for places to eat and was an excellent communicator! Overall, we highly recommend this condo for anyone looking for a relaxing and luxurious stay in Maui.

This is a great condo in a perfect location. You can walk right out and you are on a great beach to snorkel, swim, SUP, etc. The view off the balcony is gorgeous and it's the perfect place to have morning coffee or an evening cocktail. The condo was clean and well appointed with everything you need to cook, plus beach chairs, a beach umbrella, snorkeling equipment, and a washer and dryer. It's close to Whaler's Village and the beach path starts just to the left of the unit with several miles of path to walk or run. It's also walking distance to Duke's and the food trucks, and there are gas grills if you want to grill out. Three of us stayed there comfortably. We will definitely be coming back!

After spending 3 nights at the Four Seasons on Lana’i, we arrived here and absolutely squealed with delight when we walked through the door! This property is more beautiful than the pictures even portray it. It is perfect from A-Z. The VIEW, you’re right on the ocean. The decor, elegant and relaxed at once. Super clean. Well appointed, we cooked both nights and had everything we possibly needed and so much more. The vibe is indescribable-light, joyous, happy. There is a grocery store across the street. Gorgeous beach/pool/hot tub. This home is Perfect 🌸 Thank you so much to the owners for sharing it!

This property is exactly as described. We had an incredible stay in Alicia's condo! The condo has anything and everything you need, for a home away from home feel. The kitchen is well stocked for cooking meals in. Everything from towels, to extra blankets, to pillows, you name it, nothing was forgotten about. As an added plus, the beach toys and supplies are endless. Our kids enjoyed the paddle boards and skim board, as well as the snorkel gear, all while we enjoyed the coolers and beach chairs. The views from the condo are breathtaking. We enjoyed sitting on the lanai daily. We saw whales and turtles almost every day. We also enjoyed watching the surfers, right out front. The location is easy to central to Kaanapali and a quick drive to whatever you want to do. If we return to Hawaii, we would definitely stay here again. Thank you Alicia for your accommodations!

We absolutely loved our stay in this condo. It was very clean, well-equipted and extremely comfortable & spacious for 2 adults. The view from this 2nd floor unit is fantastic and we were able to see whales and sea turtles daily. The Mahana was exactly what we were looking for…a “resort” feel, yet somewhat low-key and serene. The pool and hot tub were nice..nothing fancy, but we did enjoy the simplicity and ease of access directly to the beach. Perhaps not the best place to stay if you have active kids, but ideal for couples. We would definitely recommend this unit and hope to stay here again soon!

Whether you are having coffee in the living room or cocktails on the lanai the soothing sound of the waves allows you to instantly relax and truly take in the beauty of this amazing Island. We can't wait to come back!

Thank you Crystal and Jim for such a wonderful and memorable birthday vacation! Crystal and Jim were wonderful hosts. They were easy to communicate with and provided a lot of great information about the condo and things to do in the area. When we arrived the self check-in system was easy and seamless. The complex is in a great location and the condo exceeded our expectations. It was clean, spacious, and had everything we needed. The view is absolutely amazing from any where in the condo (living room, kitchen, bedroom, and the balcony). My husband and I sat on the balcony every morning and whale watched while enjoying our morning coffee. What a bonus! Looking forward to staying here again on our next trip to Maui!

Clean, well-renovated, and nicely stocked condo with magnificent views of the Pacific Ocean dotted by Molokai, Lanai and Oahu, in the distance. Great location with access to Ka’ anapali beach walk and restaurants (Duke’s). Building is solid and quiet. Highly recommend.

This is where you want to stay! The condo is perfect for a Maui getaway! Views from this condo had us watching whales, dolphins, sea turtles and surfers. In a great location close to restaurants (dinners at the food trucks was great! We recommend the Thai truck!), grocery store across the street and the sandy beach was right outside. This place is a gem! We will definitely be back if in Maui again!!

This was our 3rd time to Maui and this property was, by far, the best of any we've stayed in. The view of the water is amazing and we caught ourselves many times just looking out searching for signs of whales (of which we saw many). The beach is super close as well as the beginning of the boardwalk that will take you all the way south through almost all of Kaanapali. We will absolutely try and stay here again on future Maui trips.
