About the property

Studio Condo with Full Kitchen and Private Lanai


The Mahana is an Oceanfront condo resort on the northern end of Kaanapali Beach, with an authentic Old Hawaiian feel and mature landscaping. The tree canopy along the entrance to The Mahana gives it a romantic and relaxing ambiance. It is 50 feet from the Ocean and all condos have private glass balconies, allowing for amazing views of Lanai and Molokai. The location on Kaanapali Beach is perfect for sunbathing, snorkeling, or just relaxing at the pool. There is a scenic beach walk that takes you to Black Rock and Whaler's Village. We don't have a restaurant at The Mahana, but Duke's is next door at Honua Kai and there is a great selection of restaurants a short walk away, as well as Times Market and Farmer's Market.

Be the first guests to enjoy this beautifully updated condo! Being on the TENTH FLOOR, it is high above the palm trees, allowing for the BEST VIEWS ON MAUI!!! Floor to ceiling windows for unobstructed views the moment you walk through the front door! It is perfect for whale-watching from December through April, and the Ocean is so clear that you can see turtles swimming below.

Just imagine waking up to the gentle Ocean breeze and listening to the waves from the most comfortable King sized bed. We have a full kitchen to fix breakfast and enjoy it on the lanai. The bathroom has a tile shower and separate dressing area to get ready and enjoy the day. There is also a full sized LG washer and dryer for your convenience.

About Louis Trinh

Hi, thank you for taking the time to read our webpage. My wife and I, along with our four kids, live in the suburbs of Atlanta, Georgia. I work at a hospital near us, and my wife, Kristine, takes care of the household. Kristine is Hawaiian, and when we go back to visit family, we usually stay at a hotel. We normally visit Maui twice a year, and since we have outgrown hotel rooms, it just made sense to buy a condo with great amenities so that we feel like we ARE on vacation. We take a lot of pride in keeping The Mahana condo perfect and our guests happy. Our condo is filled with amenities to make sure that you are comfortable, and will happily do everything we can to accomodate your needs.

Louis Trinh purchased this condo in 2014

Why Louis Trinh chose Lahaina

The VIEWS!!! Its second to none. The Mahana has a great history and is a very well-maintained resort. This side of Kaanapali Beach is quiet, has great views of Lanai and Molokai, and you can snorkel right on our beach. Relax poolside and take in the sunset, its very peaceful. From December to April, you can catch whales playing in the Ocean.

What makes this condo unique

Recently renovated in July 2015 with all new furniture and a beach flair, stainless steel GE appliances, artwork by local Maui artist, fresh paint, and new electronics. With comfortable linens, HDTV programming, and the utmost privacy, there is no reason to leave the condo. The Mahana has a pool and spa, tennis court, shuffle board, free wifi, and an Activities Desk in the Lobby to help plan your activities.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Louis,

Thank you for helping make our Maui trip such a wonderful experience. This was our first time at a VRBO. Your place in Maui worked perfectly. We had the feeling of lifestyles of the rich and famous at all times. At some point in the future we would love to be repeat guests. Everything worked perfectly in your unit including the AC, the washer and dryer, the dishwasher, etc... The bed was comfortable and the bathroom / shower / counter tops / lighting etc were all first class. The lanai was the just amazing! The location was perfect with a nice grocery store across the street. The building was quiet, clean, and organized and the parking was convenient and easy. Part of our desire to go back to Maui is because of our positive experience at your place. We have already recommended this location to our friends and family.

Thanks again !

Just returned from a 1 week stay at the Mahana #1013. The suite has an incredible unobstructed view of the ocean with frequent whale and turtle sightings. The suite itself is beautiful and well maintained. The owners were attentive and very helpful with any and all enquiries and had great suggestions on things to do and restaurants. Fantastic restaurants nearby and a beautiful walkway that leads to other resorts and whalers village along the ocean.

There is a market for groceries very close by and ample cooking area on site (BBQ). The pool was not overcrowded and lots of loungers. The on site concierge is a nice touch (did not use but other guests remarks were very positive).

Overall this is an excellent suite and location for a stay in Maui and we will be re-booking in the near future. ***Best sunsets in Maui were enjoyed from our lanai***

Thank you

C & M

Best View In Maui

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I celebrated her 50th in Maui and it would be impossible to find a more perfect spot. The 10th floor view from the Mahana during the peak of whale season was like a dream come true. I don't think a minute went by when we diden' t see whales. The only thing better than the view was getting to know the owner Louis. A real gentleman and a great resource for all things Maui. It was our first trip to Maui and I was able to book all our activities with confidence well ahead of time based on his suggestions. Some of the condo perks included: no check in - go straight to the room after long trip, binoculars, beach chairs, beach towels, cooler, quality toiletries and the best lanai furniture. Barstools, breakfast table, and a chaise lounge for the ultimate relaxation in a seclued paradise. During peak season the island is busy. Traffic on the roads and foot traffic in the town's and tourist spots. This made the quiet of the Mahana a great place to return to after a busy day. We went to luau at one of the popular resorts and although the grounds at the resort where breath taking it was way to busy and noisy for us. I am very grateful we chose the Mahana and found Louis through VRBO.

Beautiful views from the lanai!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our time at the Mahana. The condo was well stocked with most of what we needed for the week. The views were unbelievable, and we enjoyed breakfast on the lanai every morning, as well as the sunsets every night.

As for the facility in general, it was nice, although there were nicer pools at other resorts nearby (this one does not get much sun!). We used the BBQs often, which were so nice to have access to!

We would 100% return to Maui and book this property again.

Unbelievable Views

  • 4 of 5

The best thing about this condo is the view and the comfortable lanai furniture on which to enjoy it. Spent almost all the time we were at the condo on the lanai. Every night we turned off the A/C and opened the screen door to hear the ocean. Bed was extremely comfortable. Kitchen was updated. Could have used a few more basic items. Our only complaint was it could have been a little cleaner. Floor was dirty. The first night there I was in white socks and they were filthy by the time we were done unpacking. All the towels, bath and beach were very damp and we had to put them in the dryer. And the bathroom has some mold issues in the shower and on the ceiling.

Owner's Response: Aloha Marianne, thank you for the nice review! We're glad that you loved the ocean views from the 10th floor. It really feels as if you're on a cruise ship! The loveseat on our lanai is so comfortable for cuddling or just relaxing with a nice book. I'm so sorry that the condo wasn't perfectly cleaned and wished you would have told me when we talked that first night, so that I could have our housekeeper come back and make things right. You did pay for a cleaning fee and we want everything to be perfect. We take a lot of pride in keeping the condo cleaned and stocked, so your feedback is very important to us. We appreciate you taking such great care of the condo and hope you will be back in the future!
