Aloha and mahalo for choosing the Aston Mahana at Kaanapali, as a many times repeat visitor to Hawaii we know you have many choices and we're truly honored you've picked us as the best. Our owners take great pride in providing modern and well equipped units and our friendly and helpful staff makes it a goal to show the Aloha Spirit to and exceed the expectations of all our guests. Of course, as you found out, our spectacular oceanfront views of various marine life, beautiful sunsets and rainbows and the neighboring islands of Molokai and Lanai across the way available from every unit here make it very hard for our guests to return home.
Mahalo again for your great comments and have a safe trip back to Wisconsin, my old stomping grounds, as I attended Beloit College.

Mahalo, Brian

We chose a standard studio w/ocean view this year and first time staying in Kaanapali.. The room was clean and housekeeping was provided daily. However, when we toured the other "premium" units, we decided we might prefer those. We had never stayed in Kaanapali before and although it was windy the first week, we still loved it there. The pool was a bit small but i guess it was the start of "off season" and poolside was never crowded. Good service from housekeeping and front counter staff; they were all very helpful. I think we are going back to stay next year too!

Room Tip: Choose premium rooms over standard.

Aloha and mahalo for allowing us here at the Aston Mahana at Kaanapali host you on your first trip to the Kaanapali area of Maui. It's gratifying to hear that our helpful 24 hour front desk staff and our on-site daily housekeeping and maintenance staff provided you with good service and allowed you to have your great vacation.
Every unit here at the Mahana has the same spectacular oceanfront views, fully equipped kitchens, washer/dryer, private lanai and all of our Aston units need to meet the same high standards with the premium units stepping it up even higher.
The entire staff here at the Aston Mahana at Kaanapali looks forward to showing you the Aloha Spirit again soon.

We chose to stay here during our Hawaii Trip in 2010. This is a fabulous oceanfront property. It is basically a timeshare that is managed by Aston with studios, 1 bed and 2 bed apartments. We had a studio on the 8th floor. A friend of ours who travelled with us was upgraded for free to a 2 Bed Apartment on the 1st floor.

Each room faces the beautiful sea at Maui. This is probably the building that is closest to the ocean and beach in the sense that it is probably less than 100 ft from the water.

Nice pool and barbeque grill downstairs. Great staff and service. The beach right outside the property is not really suitable for swimming or snorkeling but you can walk 50 meters to the left and find plenty of beach.

Would strongly recommend and will go stay back here just for the location and views.

Aloha and mahalo for choosing the Aston Mahana at Kaanapali for your time here on the beautiful island of Maui. We're thrilled to hear that you found our staff to have provided great service and that both our second to none oceanfront location steps from the beach and spectacular oceanfront views allow you to recommend us to your friends. One small point of clarification, every unit here at the Mahana is individually owned, we are not a timeshare, and both our owners and staff take great pride in providing both clean, comfortable and well-appointed units and exceeding the expectations of all our guests.
We very much look forward to hosting you again in the near future.

This being our first trip to Maui, we put a lot of research into our recent stay. We are so glad that we did. The Aston Mahana at Kaanapali met or exceeded all of our expectations. We had reserved a two bedroom unit for my wife, myself and our two daughters. It was beautiful. The girls had their own space with twin beds and a private bathroom while my wife and I had the Master bedroom which opened to the lanai and the beautiful Pacific Ocean. The living area was nicely furnished with floor to ceiling windows facing not only the ocean, but also the pool area which was a plus. The kitchen was outstanding with modern appliances and granite countertops. It was a treat to prepare a traditional Easter dinner while looking out at the Pacific Ocean.

Our unit was on the fifth floor and while some have said that the palm trees block the views, I disagree. I'm of the opinion that having them as a part of your field of vision actually enhances the view. What could be more quintessentially Hawaiian than viewing the sun setting over the Pacific with palm trees swaying in the foreground.

The pool area is small if you compare it to a large resort, but it is perfect for the Mahana. We never found it to be crowded and it is kept impeccably clean and neat. The hot tub is wonderful and the gas grills are well maintained, clean and very convenient. There is a wonderful family atmosphere at the Mahana as people (both staff and guests) seem to go out of their way to be friendly.

All of the staff seemed helpful and efficient and the housekeepers did an outstanding job.

When I return to Maui, I can't imagine a reason why I would ever stay anywhere other than the Aston Mahana at Kaanapali.

We booked our stay through Costco. A friend of ours had recommended we stay in Lahaina, so we chose the Aston Mahana. We had original booked a hotel, but after much thinking, decided on a condo and I'm so glad we did. We were traveling with our 23 month old (last chance to fly free) who is quite the picky eater, so it was great having a fully equipped kitchen to meet our needs. Here are the pros and cons:

Pros:
Free wifi
Free parking
Oceanfront view -- how can you beat that
Pool
Fully equipped kitchen
Beach accessories (i.e. towels, umbrella, pail/shovel for kids, boogie board)
Less than 15 minutes drive from Front street.
Free movie rentals
Housekeeping service every day

Cons:
Not many restaurants w/in walking distance
The lady at the concierge desk wasn't helpful - we asked for help finding a restaurant with peel and eat shrimp and she was lost...couldn't name a single one -- thank goodness for tripadvisor and yelp.
Resort fee -- but that's common. Only $18/day, though

The pros definitely outweigh the cons. We would definitely come back.

Aloha and mahalo for choosing the Aston Mahana at Kaanapali, we're thrilled to hear the fully equipped kitchen and washer/dryer that we feature in every unit here was convenient for your family.
We do charge an $18 per day amenity fee but believe we provide great value for this with the included unlimited DVD/games available in the lobby kiosk, daily newsapaper delivered to our units, use of the safe in the unit, and with our daily housekeeping service our guests receive replenishment of the coffee/tea, laundry soap and of course all of the other bathroom amenities. As well, here at the Mahana there is no charge for parking nor the in-room wi-fi service.
All of us here at the Aston Mahana at Kaanapali look forward to you returning for both the convenience and comfort we provide, the Aloha Spirit of our staff and of course the spectacular oceanfront views.

We booked our 1 bed/2 bath room directly with Mahana and were very happy with the 11th floor room we got. Beautiful rooms, quiet. The views are incredible! It was very windy the last week in April and it was nice being able to sit on the lanai with practically no breeze overtaking us, we were able to eat, play cards and enjoy watching the turtles down below. The pool and hot tub were nice to relax in and it was great having the lounge chairs to lay out on just far enough away from the blowing sand. We enjoyed walking along the beach and watching the gorgeous sunsets. We like quieter/less resorty type places to stay and the Mahana was perfect for this. It was hard leaving...we're looking forward to going back!

Room Tip: Open the kitchen window to get a good cross breeze moving through.

These self contained apartments are spacious and have everything needed. The view is great and the beach is at your feet. The only downfall is it is not so close to the popular shops and eateries. We did not have a car and found the bus's easy to operate with the different routes, however the one to our area finishes early and if you want to eat out you gave to get a taxi home, unless you have a car. Great place for R&R and with a supermarket across the road you can stay local and save money.
