We both grew up by the sea, David
in Ireland, Kathy
in San Francisco and we always knew that however far away we moved from it, we would always come back. After we met in college, we traveled much of the world together, but it was Maui
and the stretch of beach in front of the Mahana that captured our hearts. We bought our first condo at Mahana in 1977. Over the years, we returned to Maui and the Mahana for a month every summer. For our children, it was a second home. Now young adults, they still love coming back every chance they can. Once you have been to the Mahana
, you'll want to come back too!
Why the Owner Chose Mahana
We fell in love with the Mahana in 1977. We were walking along the beach. The sun was setting between the islands of Lanai
. It was the most amazing sight! We turned around and saw Mahana
. We knew right then and there that we had to buy one of these beachfront homes. For us it was the view and the view and the view!
The Unique Benefits at this Condo
For us it's a home away from home. In winter we love watching the whales, in summer it's the dolphins and turtles. I love getting up to see the dawn coming up over the ocean. My husband is mesmerized by the stars. We all enjoy walking or jogging on the beach, swimming and snorkeling in the crystal clear blue water, exploring all the other nearby beaches, Kapalua Bay
, Napili Bay
, Fleming Beach
, Honolua Bay
. We also love going to the Farmers market for fresh papaya and mangos and finding local fish to grill back at the Mahana
. It's the majesty of the ocean and the mountains. It's the trade winds and the friendly people. It's something else, totally special that is just impossible to describe. You have to come to Maui
and the Mahana
and you will experience it yourself!
