MAHANA 1 BEDROOM - OCEANFRONT - 30 STEPS TO OCEAN SAND!
About Heather Hansen
My husband, son and I live on the east side of the Cascades in the beautiful state of Washington, where we own and operate a sports medicine clinic.
Heather Hansen purchased this Condo in 2013
Why Heather Hansen chose Lahaina
After many years of travel and discovery on Maui - we got hooked on the Mahana. Living in the Northwest we are very spoiled with the beautiful landscape of mountains, lakes and rivers.....so needless to say, we don't like to settle for a 'partial ocean view'! I went for a walk one day on the ocean shore of West Maui and happened by the Mahana. I couldn't get over how big the windows were, and how close the buildings were to the beach. The next time we returned to the island we stayed at the Mahana and never turned back. As Maui vacationers prior to our purchase, we had experienced the island the same way many of our guests would. The Kaanapali area offers a tremendous variety of beaches, proximity to Lahaina, the famous boardwalk, the most amazing sunsets and glorious views of Lanai and Molokai. There are many reasons why we chose the Mahana. The property offered the type of relaxed feel - not one of a big resort where you have to set your alarm to get your spot by the pool! It is close enough to the world class dining the resort areas offer, but far enough away that you have choices. Subway, pizza, fish market, sushi, farmers market and groceries that are frequented by locals as often as tourists. But the VIEW from the condo is the #1 reason! Imagine watching the whales from your living room or patio while you sip your morning coffee, or evening pina coloda. I'm not kidding!! This is what sealed the deal. There are not many properties on Maui with this kind of view. No 'partial ocean views'. You will find only 100%, straight on, in your face OCEAN!! We now own two units (or I should say the bank owns two units). Our first purchase was in 2011 of a two bedroom unit on the 9th floor (VRBO # 376315). Followed by the purchase of this unit on the bottom floor - both the magnificent views from the 9th floor corner and the wonderful access a bottom floor unit grants.
What makes this Condo unique
Our family loves to be comfortable. And we love beautiful things. When you are spending hard earned money for a vacation, you should expect the place you are staying to be cared for and designed well. How do you FEEL when you are in a space? Is the decoration tasteful? Are the colors soothing? Is it clean? Are the pillows and sheets luxurious? Is the bed spread 100 years old? YUCK!!! We pay attention to these things and take your trust in us very seriously. When you stay in our Maui home, you will be provided with everything you can think of to make your vacation a special one. From provided beach chairs and towels to spices in the cupboard!

Fabulous time in Paradise
Great time in Maui and stay at Heathers ground floor condo. Pretty private... Felt like we were alone. Perfect location. Walking distance to grocery and other services. Ocean symphony outside our door. Surfers during several days. Jazz club music and restaurants nearby.
Coming back next year!
Stunning views and great location!
This was our first vacation to Maui and my husband and I loved our stay at Heather's first floor condo at Mahana. The location was perfect - stunning views of the ocean from every window, walk right out to the beach and pool, and walking distance to Duke's for a bite to eat. Very comfortable, very clean condo! Heather thought of everything you need for a relaxing vacation. We will definitely book with Heather on our next trip. Wouldn't want to stay anywhere else!

We had a wonderful stay at this property. View was beautiful, condo was clean. We enjoyed the little extra touches that were there to make our stay more special. Heather was responsive and very helpful. Definitely recommend this condo!
Best 6 days in paradise!
Heather's condo in Maui is exactly as her pictures show. We spent 6 nights here and it was the most relaxing and beautiful vacation we have gone on as of late. The location of the condo is perfect, steps from the beach, beautiful sunsets, and loads of free parking.
The access to the boardwalk in Kaanapali was perfect for morning jogs, and the proximity to amazing restaurants was perfect - Duke's in particular ;).
I highly recommend Heather's condo to anyone looking for a vacation in Maui. We especially loved going into Lahaina and eating to our hearts content all the great fish at Down the Hatch and Paia Fish Market.
Not only was the condo perfect, but Heather provided us with great tips and was extremely responsive if we had any additional questions.
Thank you thank you thank you Heather! We look forward to visiting your condo during our next Maui stay.
Awesome Place on the Ground Floor!
We have stayed at the Mahana before, because we love the location, and the condos are always nice and well taken care of. This place was everything we wanted! Heather was very kind, communicative and helpful. We used the washer and dryer, the kitchen was well stocked with appliances and cookware, the shower is lovely, and the bed is VERY comfortable. We have an almost-2-year-old, so we wanted a ground level unit where she could have a little more room to roam outside on the grass. We were able to come in and out easily, and sit outside on the lawn chairs while watching the ocean, which is RIGHT outside. It's a quick walk to Duke's and the beach-walk. If you're looking for a quieter beach with calmer waves, go the other direction, just past Kaanapali Beach Club. We loved our stay, and would stay here again in a heartbeat!
