We stayed here as 2 couples on our first trip to Maui. The unit is spectacular in decor, comfort, and amenities. The kitchen is well supplied with the necessities for cooking and the creature comforts are those of a high end home. The building including the check-in process is flawless. It is well situated for Maui exploration. Views are beautiful day and night. Being so sun exposed in the afternoon means sitting on the lanai is difficult for long periods (not a bad thing). The one and only surprise for such a high end unit is the abscence of the avaiability to play music- there are lots of available CD's for use but no where to play them- the supplied blue ray player hooked through the TV is non-functional. The unit manager is aware of this and was readliy responsive to enquiry about the same- this by no means is a deal breaker and we would most definitely stay here again. We used the free wifi to stream through our own device.
Overall a wonderful rental and its beauty and comfort was appreciated by all.

We were initially hesitant to rent the Mahana 1019 condo as it is done offline without the use of a hand signed contract or insurance. Ken, however, was very pleasant to book through and answered all of our questions and concerns diligently and appropriately. The online pictures of the condo don't do it justice! The grounds of the Mahana and surrounding neighbors are a picture in themselves. You couldn't ask for closer beach access. The view from inside is breathtaking, especially with the hundreds of humpback whales breeching the surface at every glance out. The snorkeling right outside the building is incredible on a clear, calm day. I really can't say enough good things about the place. Awesome vacation!
My husband and I went with our parents to Maui this year and we have stayed at 5 star resorts previously. This condo rivaled those resorts with it's interior and surpassed them with views. We had the most amazing views and the building stands 30 feet (approx.) from the ocean. It had plenty of room for 4 adults and the only suggestions I would make are to the owner: Black out blinds for heat control and light in addition to the blinds that are in the condo currently, the other suggestion would be that there be a separate air conditioner for the Master bedroom in addition to the guest bedroom and the main living areas.
My husband and I have already talked about going back and renting the same condo because of location (it's on the end and provides more panoramic views) and quality. The agent was so pleasant and wonderful to work with and if you're looking for prime location, quality, close proximity to the beach but a full service and amenity driven resort aren't a top priority, this is your place. We love to go to Maui and LIVE for our vacation. Go to Costco, eat locally, visit fruit stands, snorkel, hang out on the beach; this resort provides the resources to do all that. They also have chairs, boogie boards, sand mats, beach towels, and more...no need to buy things you won't bring back to the mainland.
