About Heather Hansen
My husband, son and I live in the beautiful state of Washington, where we own and operate a sports medicine physical therapy clinic.
Heather Hansen purchased this Condo in 2011
Why Heather Hansen chose Lahaina
Coming from an area that offers hiking, biking, water skiing, snow skiing - and jaw dropping beauty, we were a bit picky about where to spend our vacation time. After numerous trips to Maui, we were hooked and couldn't imagine spending time anywhere else. On one of our vacations, I went for a walk on the ocean shore of West Maui and happened by the Mahana. I couldn't get over how big the windows were, and how close the buildings were to the beach. The next time we returned we stayed there and never turned back. As Maui vacationers prior to our purchase, we had experienced the island the same way many of our guests would. The Kaanapali area offers a tremendous variety of beaches, proximity to Lahaina, the famous boardwalk, the most amazing sunsets and the glorious views of Lanai and Molokai. There are many reasons why we chose the Mahana. The property offered the type of relaxed feel - not one of a big resort where you have to set your alarm to get your spot by the pool! It is close enough to wonderful dining the resort areas offer, but far enough away that you have choices. Subway, locally owned fish tacos, pizza, fish market, sushi, farmers market and groceries that are frequented by locals as often as tourists. But the VIEW from the condo is the #1 reason! Imagine watching the whales from your living room or lanai while you sip your morning coffee, or evening pina coloda. I'm not kidding!! This is what sealed the deal. There are not many properties on Maui with this kind of view. No 'partial ocean views'. You will find only 100%, straight on, in your face OCEAN!! We also rent a 1 bedroom on the bottom floor (listing #3579847) - both the magnificent views from the 9th floor and the wonderful access a bottom floor unit grants.
What makes this Condo unique
Our family loves to be comfortable. And we love beautiful things. When you are spending hard earned money for a vacation, you should expect the place you are staying to be cared for and designed well. How do you FEEL when you are in a space? Are the colors soothing? Is it clean? Are the pillows and sheets luxurious? Is the bed spread 100 years old? YUCK!!! We pay attention to these things and take your trust in us very seriously. When you stay in our Maui home, you will be provided with everything you can think of to make your vacation a special one. From provided beach chairs and towels to spices in the cupboard!

Thomas Vacation in Maui
We arrived late evening on Saturday the 21st of September. We registered and settled in quickly and relaxed a bit. We took the short walk up to the grocery store and procured supplies. The views from the condo were awesome; great accommodations. The location of the complex well suited our itinerary for the week. Our daughter and son-in-law came with us. There was more than enough room for the 4 of us. The week more than met our expectations.
Perfect Property and accommodated our Wheelchair!
We were 2 senior couples with one lady in a wheelchair. The Condo perfectly suited our needs. As mentioned in earlier posts check the pantry before buying groceries as it is well stocked. Perfectly clean including the large windows. Closet is stocked with all sorts of beach gear including coolers, towels, snorkels, etc. The lady in w/c is able to walk a few steps with aid of a walker which helped to navigate a 2 inch ledge into the shower and onto the lanai. We purchased a $40 shower chair at Walmart to make the master bath suit our needs for accessibility. Parking was plentiful. We did not use the pool or other facilities (we were sightseeing:) but they looked inviting. The pool and hot tub both have a lift for accessibility. Heather was very responsive to my one call for assistance. Thank you again Heather for everything and we look forward to another stay!
Picture Perfect Views!
This corner unit condo offers amazing views that will leave you feeling like you are floating on the ocean while watching beautiful sunsets overlooking the islands of Lanai and Molokai. This location is the best on Kaanapali. The view is more than incredible, the condo is beautifully furnished and supplied with everything you need (i.e., beach chairs, beach towels, cooler, snorkel equipment, etc.), and you’re close to shopping and many activities.
Heather, the owner, is a delight to work with and she goes above and beyond to make sure you are enjoying your stay.
Sooooo in love with this place and so relaxing!!!!
This is one you do not want to miss!
Magnificent, well-appointed gem!
From the stunning views to the well-appointed, elegant living space, we were afforded an amazing home base from which to enjoy the trip of a life time. While the location is superb, looking out over the Pacific, in quiet Ka’anapali, it is the effort by the owners to create a meaningful experience that sets this unit apart. From the 11 pages of tips and and suggestions the owner provides to the snorkel and beach gear, the granite counter tops, and tasteful artwork, care and thoughtfulness is evident. She was also in contact with us when needed in an unobtrusive way.
From the lanai, we saw dolphins, turtles, and awe inspiring sunsets. Out front of the unit, the snorkelling is very good. We saw many different species, including turtles, morays, and onos. Hilights for us included ripping around on waverunners, snorkeling in Honalua Bay, the beach front Luau at Lele, the turtles in Paia, and Mai Tais on the lanai.
This review is completely unsolicited and no, we don’t know the owners, but I would not hesitate to recommend this amazing unit to anyone.
Where do I start? Heather has it all covered from beach chairs, ice chests, umbrella, beach towels, snorkels, frisbee, balls, top notch linens, beautiful view, etc. For a family of 4 with teenage boys this place nailed it. Definitely 5 star class of service.
Highly recommend. Beautiful views and great location. Heather was very accessible and wonderful to work with. We will absolutely be staying here again:)
