About Linda Waite
Aloha! We are John and Linda Waite and Kathy Roberts, proud owners of this outstanding 1 bedroom, 1 bath vacation property at The Mahana in Maui, Hawaii. Linda's first visit to Hawaii at the age of 5 was the beginning of her lifelong love affair with the Hawaiian islands and her desire (shared by husband John and sister Kathy) for a piece of paradise. After numerous Maui vacations, staying at various resorts across the island, our decision to purchase at The Mahana was realized in 2000. We vacation in our home at The Mahana throughout the year to ensure it continues to meet our high expectations. We strive to make our vacation home the best of the best at this first rate property by continually upgrading and improving it with each visit. From the moment you step through the front door, we believe you will know your decision to choose our home was absolutely the right one! Mahalo!
Linda Waite purchased this Condo in 2000
Why Linda Waite chose Kaanapali
After years of visiting Maui and staying primarily at resort hotels, sisters Linda and Kathy knew after seeing the beachfront Mahana it was something very special. Seeing The Mahana's simple and easy access to the quiet beach, absolutely glorious views, immaculately maintained grounds, large pool with relaxing lounge chairs and sounds of the surf in the background, made their decision an easy one. When the opportunity presented itself soon after in the year 2000, they bought unit 1204 sight unseen. To this day, the thrill of seeing that million dollar view as you step inside never gets old. Still just as amazing now as the first time!

Comfortable in Paradise!!!!!
My husband and I chose Mahana Unit 1204 to be our home base during our week long celebration of our 25th wedding anniversary and we were not disappointed. The unit was clean and comfortable and felt like the comforts of home. The separate Kitchen, living room, bathroom were a plus and didn't make us feel like we were in a hotel. We chose this unit because of those features, its direct beachfront access and quiet resort vibe. However, we did enjoy walking a short distance to enjoy the restaurants located in the resorts along the boardwalk. If the hustle and bustle of resort life is your vibe, then go for it. Our preference was direct ocean view without looking at the resort amenities and people while feeling like at home.. It was so quiet and quite romantic. The views from the lanai were BEAUTIFUL!!! Each night presented a different show and never disappointed. During our visit we had planned excursions and therefore didn't have time to use the pool, hot tub or bbq pits, so I have nothing to report there other than they looked clean and to be in excellent shape.
Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful unit. I am hoping that we have the chance to go back to celebrate another anniversary AND we are not waiting another 25 years.
Great property with best view in Maui.
Very nice apartment with breathtaking views and excellent location. Highly recommended!
Beautiful location and amazing view!
My wife and I stayed here for our first visit to Maui and couldn't have been any more happy with our stay here. The penthouse had an absolutely amazing view and the unit was perfect!
We had a few questions prior to and during our stay, and Linda was very prompt in replying to our queries. Although we didn't come to watch TV, the BIG screen TV was great. The mirrors on the walls made it look even larger than it already is! We loved that it included beach chairs and boogie boards! My wife used the fins from the available snorkel set because they were shorter than the long ones she had.
The pool was very nice and love a jacuzzi after a day at the beach. If/when we come back, this will definitely be our first choice. Did I say it had an AMAZING view?
We are so happy to hear what a great time you had and hope to return! We look forward to hearing from you when you get ready to plan your next Maui vacation! Mahalo!
This was a wonderful condo, the views were spectacular. The location is perfect, everything you could need was a short distance away. Working with Linda and Kathy is super easy. We give this a 10+ We will be returning soon.
Thanks for letting us and others know what you liked about our condo. We really appreciate your comments and saying you'll return soon is the highest compliment!
Our family of four had an amazing stay at the Mahalo! The condo was exactly as described and the view is AMAZING!! It is furnished and anything you might need is there! I enjoyed reading several of the books in the cabinet while sitting on the lanai and gazing at the ocean. Perfect!
Aloha! Thanks for letting us and others know how much you enjoyed staying at our condo. We always do everything we can to help make the time spent at our condo and your trip to Maui very special.
Many of Maui's finest hotels, resorts and condo rentals are located along the 3-mile stretch of Kaanapali Beach. Beginning at The Mahana is a paved and lit oceanfront walkway for strolls to Whalers Village and beyond. An easy walk allowing one to explore the area, take in the views or dine at neighboring restaurants such as Duke's which is located next to The Mahana.
Two 18-hole championship courses are nearby: The Royal Kaanapali and the Kaanapali Kai. Many others are scattered throughout the island.
If a luau is on your list of things to do while in Maui, there are many to choose from: Drums of the Pacific Luau (at the Hyatt), the Marriot Luau, the Sheraton Maui Hotel's Sunset Luau and the Royal Lahaina Luau.
Whaler's Village has a nice selection of boutiques and galleries if you like to shop. There is also the quaint historic whaling town of Lahaina about 6 miles away. Here you can enjoy colorful Front Street with its many shops and restaurants. You can view the huge Courthouse Square banyan tree, visit the Baldwin Home and Museum or take an ocean excursion from their harbor.
Of course, there are also beach activities such as sunbathing and snorkelling. Equipment is available to rent across the street from The Mahana.
