About the property

One-bedroom oceanfont condo with floor-to-ceiling windows and lanai on 5th floor

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 55” 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'.


100% refund for cancellations 90 days prior to rental. I do understand that sometimes things happen within 90 days of the rental. For for these times, I will try to re-rent the unit and will endeavor to return as much of your rent as I am able to obtain with the replacement rental.

Pride of ownership!

  • 5 of 5

Pros: greeted with gift basket of coffee and a pineapple, incredible view, ocean front, quiet, super clean, beach chairs, umbrella, snorkel, boogie boards, comfortable bed, functional kitchen with enough utinels a family thanksgiving dinner could be prepared. Perfect location. Close to everything. Bottom line, everything about this condo kicks ass. It’s well taken care of and has everything you would need during your Maui stay.

Cons: wine opener is broken.

An excellent rental

  • 5 of 5

There is much to love about this rental. First of all the Mahana is QUIET! It felt like we were the only ones staying there. The pool is never crowded. Parking isn't a problem. The Mahana is a lovely property (we've stayed there before in a larger unit). As far as #517, the pictures are a true representation. It's bright, cheerful and ROOMY! The view is SPECTACULAR although Molokai is obscured by the palm trees. There isn't the clutter I've seen in other condos. And it's not a "museum" with what seem to be priceless possessions of the owners. I mention that because we have a toddler and this unit is definitely toddler friendly. I only had to put away a few things in the closet in the master bedroom. One important amenity that isn't listed is a Pack 'n Play. Although our little one has grown out of those, it's a very important addition for those with younger ones. The Mahana has issues with the evening sun baking the units. The solar blinds and the air conditioning always kept this unit, unlike others, very comfortable. The kitchen, although a little dated, is well stocked for cooking. I would suggest the purchase of one additional frying pan (could have used it for our family). Thankfully the kitchen had some condiments left from previous guests. And I appreciated that. (Make sure to check all the cabinets for other supplies...there were a number of sunscreens left there...thanks) The washer and dryer are adequate. The hall closet is well stocked with cleaning supplies and beach equipment. The styrofoam cooler is a little large to take to the beach. Perhaps one of the soft side coolers would be a nice addition. The bed in the master is exceptionally comfortable!! I slept like a baby on it. Also the memory foam mattress is good. I took a nap on it to see how it was. Great for kids/teens, but perhaps not great for adults. My only "complaint" is that the bathroom really needs a remodel. The shower has sliding doors which made giving our daughter a bath cumbersome. As to the beach, if you can make it beyond the rocky part, there is excellent snorkeling and beautiful coral. (There are easier water entrances slightly to the south of the Mahana.) We would definitely stay in this unit again. Thanks for everything Lars!

Picturesque view and comfort

  • 5 of 5

The view alone was worth the rental of this unit- so close to the water, and it seemed like the sunset was in perfect alignment with our balcony...a beautiful view every night. Within walking distance from Duke’s and the ocean- made getting around very easy, not to mention the unit having a lot of the beach items (chairs, towels, etc.) accessible during the stay. Overall, a great experience!
