The Condo was well maintained and exactly like the pictures. Absolutely everything you needed was there, form big new beach towels, beach chairs, boogie boards, and lots to kitchen and household goodies to get you started. Huge TV's in both bedroom and living room, comfortable furniture, and a drop dead view. Snorkeling was excellent and the Mahana is the starting point for the boardwalk to Black Rock. All sorts of boats/watercraft are going by and looking down from the lania can see turtles, dolphin pods, and monk seals in the summer and I can only imagine how incredible the whale watching must be in the winter. There is a large Times Supermarket a couple blocks away and some pretty decent restaurants very close by.
Although I live in Calgary, I have been coming to the Maui since the late 70's and the Kaanapali area is one of my favorites. If you like the big resorts just to the south with crappy ocean views, lots of people, and double the price, then don't stay at the Mahana. If you want a quiet, civilized holiday, with the ocean waves lulling you to sleep, then maybe this is the place for you.
As a side note, dealing with the Owner (Joe F.) was great. He was very accommodating and professional with all aspects of the booking process.
