About Sheela Havas

We've enjoyed our little piece of paradise for almost 25 years... We live in California (La Quinta) when not here and love to share our home with visitors from all over the U.S., Canada, and the world!

Sheela Havas purchased this condo in 1989

Why Sheela Havas chose Maui

Maui is 'No Ka Oi' (the best!)... voted #1 island in the world each year... Great dining, snorkeling, fishing, golf, tennis, with weather that is just amazing... We are always sad to leave... Can't think of anywhere else I would rather be!!!

What makes this condo unique

Views are nothing less than spectacular... The ocean (only 20 steps away) is very calming and promotes a great nights sleep... Centrally located between Kapalua and Lahaina... A short walk to restaurants and a great Farmer's Market...

Amazing stay at Mahana

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Sheela for sharing your place with us, it was amazing!

I visited Maui for the first time with my parents, and I can speak for all of us that we were awed by the view from the moment we walked in. My mom and dad could not stop raving about the view, even after we got home:) For many years my mom dreamed of visiting Hawaii, so I gifted her this trip and she was not disappointed by my selection of the place.

The place was huge for our party of 3, everything was clean, the kitchen and unit well equipped, and the beds very comfortable (so much so that my mom is trying to persuade my dad to replace their mattress with a Tempurpedic).

Sheela was an excelling host from beginning to end. She answered all our questions within hours, if not minutes. The check-in process was also very simple.

I will miss having breakfast and lunch staring at the ocean and the beach, and the sound of the waves on the balcony.

If I ever come back to Maui, I will definitely try to book Sheela's condo again, and I'd recommend it to anyone.

From your Canadian neighbors,

Silver and family

Mahana Perfection

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have stayed in several different Mahana at Kaanapali units over the years. #511 is by far our favorite. It is simultaneously gorgeous and comfortable -- a combination not always easy to find. The island decor is cheerful, harmonious, and adorned with lovely sea and animal art. Clearly, utility is every bit as important to the owners as is appearance. The kitchen is well stocked with dishes and tools of all sorts. Every convenience is close at hand!

The view from this corner unit's picture windows is unparalleled. Sunsets over Lanai, Molokai, and the wide ocean are so gorgeous as to seem surreal. I am an artist, so I particularly appreciated the spectacular views and constantly changing light, shadow, and color. New paintings are sure to be born!

For wildlife lovers, whale activity is easily viewed without ever having to leave the comfort of the condo. We saw dozens of mother and baby whales breaching, fin slapping, and tail slapping. What a thrilling glimpse into the lives of these magical animals! Mynahs, finches, and other birds sing and hop about at eye level in the palms just outside the condo windows. They are a delight to watch and hear, as well!

We have always felt that the Mahana is the prime vacation spot on Maui, and now we have enjoyed the perfect home away from home in #511. I have no doubt we will be back!!

Best stay on Maui

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at the Mahana, suite 511 during this past December. This wasn’t our first stay at the Mahana, having previously stayed in other units. The amenities that this building offers (swimming pool, hot tub, spotless barbeques) are first class and the breathtaking view from this building is unbeatable. We feel the Kaanapali area is one of the best on Maui.

Unit 511 is very quiet and has an inviting and relaxing feel to it with fantastic amenities such as Internet, TV with movie channels, stereo and a fully-equipped kitchen with modern appliances and everything we could possibly need. We stayed as two couples so each couple had their own bedroom and bathroom, which were well stocked with linens and plenty of bath and beach towels.

I have booked many other stays through VRBO (and similar sites) but this was different. Right from the onset we dealt directly with the unit owner (Sheela) rather than a property manager or corporation. Sheela was wonderful to deal with and ensured we were provided with the name of a local contact person with direct phone number if we encountered any issues (which of course, we didn’t any). She thoughtfully provided us with a welcome basket filled with local goodies and a delicious pineapple.

Reflecting back on our stay we could have used a few less rainbows the first week but would have changed little else. I will without a doubt stay in this area again and list this condo as our first choice in accommodation.

Thank you Sheela for making this a memorable trip. We can’t wait to get back to Maui!

Terrific Condo!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay in this fabulous condo. Unit 511 has everything you need for a wonderful, relaxing vacation. The condo is spacious, up-to-date, comfortable, and tastefully decorated. A thoughtful, delicious gift basket awaits you the moment you arrive. The king size beds are very comfortable. There is so much room in the condo, our son and his family joined us every evening for dinner. The barbeques are by the pool and exceptionally clean every day. We travelled with a twenty- month old who couldn't get enough of the beach, the ocean, the pool, and even a little bit of the hot tub in the evening. He was covered with sand and a big smile from head to toe every day. The boardwalk behind the condo is great for the stroller and a daily early morning walk. You can walk for several miles. The ocean is literally a few steps from the pool and I enjoyed a beach walk every midday on the world famous Ka'anappali Beach. The ocean is warm and inviting for swimming and snorkling. There is a grocery store across the street, many other shops and restaurants within walking distance, and Lahaina is a few minutes drive down the road. Sheela Havas, the owner, is extremely responsive, professional, flexible, and accommodating. She is a very gracious and kind host. In other words, you cannot find a better place, a better location with a gorgeous sunset every night, or better value. We will definitely be back!

Awesome! We had the vacation of a lifetime!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived late at night after a 29 hour trip from our home in the Netherlands and spent hours looking over the moonlit ocean in wonder. And that was before waking up to a magnificent spectacle the next morning. The view from the condo has to be seen to be believed. The everchanging colors, the frolicking whales, the islands in the distance. Pictures do not do it justice.

The condo is a few miles North of the busier part of Ka'anapali around Whaler's village. There is a good grocery store closeby, and plenty of fine restaurants within 15 minutes. The building itself is pleasantly low-key in a much quieter part of Ka'anapali. The apartment has everything you could ever have wanted, roomy and bright with windows on 3 sides, and included a nice gift basket with local produce. If we ever to decide to make the trek again we'll definitely stay there again. We had the vacation of a lifetime.

Amazing !!

  • 5 of 5

We were stunned at how truly amazing this condo and location are, even better than we expected. We wanted for nothing as, everything you need is already provided ! Every day we were able to watch whales put on a show. We had a turtle that just hung out about 5 yards out on morning. We enjoyed playing shuffleboard just about everyday. Can't say enough, we walked the beach boardwalk to Dukes to eat, and snorkeled at Kaanapali beach, better than our snorkel tour ! Sheela, is very thoughtful of her guest comfort...looking forward to planning another stay ...Mahalo
