1. Alaska Family ( Fairbanks, Alaska)
We found this condo with not much lead time ..in fact many condo�s we looked at on VRBO were taken by the time we decided to go to maui... about a month prior to going. we were happy to find this one open for the week we wanted. Not knowing what the accomodations would be like, we went on faith that it would be a good unit and good location. we hadn�t been to Maui in many years. we were not disappointed. the condo is on the top floor and overlooks a spectacular piece of beach with great opportunities for snorkeling, walking, and enjoying the ocean.the view is INCREDIBLE, morning noon and night. we missed the whale season ,but spotted giant sea turtles from the condo balcony, on a daily basis. there is plenty of room to spread out.we had 4 teenage boys with us...two slept in the spare room and two on the pull out couch. there is also a roll-away bed.the condo is close to everything in kannapali and we did EVERYTHING. snorkeling, sunset cruise para-sailing, shopping,a lual, boogie boarding, walking, swimming.. everything. the people at the mahana were very friendly and helpful with planning our activities we love being able to cook, in, and we cooked in cooked in about every night and most other meals. the kitchen is very well equipped. there are places to eat close by, but be sure to make reservations ahead if you can. there were some minor repair issues in the bathrooms of hte condo, but we made the owner of them, and i�m sure they were taken care of. thankyou so much peter for the use if your beautiful condo.we have many great memories there, and we warmed up after a long winter.your friends in Alaska !

My familystayed in this condo in november 2010. I searched for many weeks for a place to stay that would comfortably accommodate 4 adults and 2 children. I chose this place after reading many reviews on various sites. the kannapali penthouse condo was roomy, clean and comfortable; it had private separate bedrooms and baths plus gorgeous views. I could�t have said it better than what has already been posted by other guests. we can�t wait to return to maui... and this condo will be at the top of our list.

Our family celebrated new year 2010 in this oceanfront maui condo. the unit is spacious, decorated nicely with hawaiian decor and has a well equipped kitchen. Both bedrooms have new mattresses that were very comfortable. A convenient washer/ dryer combination is just off the master bedroom.the living room and lanai provided plenty of room and comfortable furniture for our family of five. there is very large tV in the living room. we were very happy with how quiet and peaceful it was.

I have stayed in peter�s condo four times in the past five years. the last visit was from mid january to mid march of 2010. the first time i visited maui was for a week and knew i had to go back after searching the internet for countless hours for the right place i decided on the �Mahana� and found the availability for the month i wanted in this unit. whenever i book something with out seeing it. i am very nervous and i have had plenty of disappointments.when I opened the door and saw the view i was lanai. The building is so close to the ocean that you have to walk right up to the floor to wall window to see the beach. Being in a corner unit gives you the bonus of looking out ot the mile of beautiful beach that leads to Black Rock and Kaanapalli Beach. Wow - I was in heaven. the master bedroom has sliding doors out to the lanai so you can let the sound of the waves put you to sleep. if you get stuck in the second bedroom you will have to settle for the majestic view of the mountains. this is what I love about peter�s condo: Spectacular views and sunset�s daily, the best whale watching in maui( i have taken literally thousands of photos from the lanai of whales beaching and dolphins frolicking right out in front) great reef with awesome snorkeling,paddle boarding and swimming , the sound of the ocean waves breaking onto shore 24/7. The condo is very soundproof and i cannot ever recall hearing any noise trough the walls. the furniture and bedding is very comfortable , the kitchen is well equipped and a washer and dryer hidden in the bedroom closet so you can pack light! the mahana is not a �mega hotel style complex� with lots of noise, slides in the swimming pool and where you need to fight for a lounge chair at the beach or pool. if that is what you want - look elsewhere. If you want peace, Privacy , awesome views, the sound of the ocean in a location that is close to lahina, shopping, restaurants� and all the beauty of maui this is the place to go. my stays have all been for at least a month and as long as two months and I have no desire to stay anywhere else. The 12th floor is the place to be for the best views and don�t be concerned about getting to the beach quickly. the elevators are fast and you are walking in the sand with in seconds of leaving the condo. Thanks Peter for sharing your slice of heaven!
5. Peter, Thankyou for the opportunity to spend our vacation in your mahana condo. The location is centrally located for anything we wanted to do and the value is excellent. close to highways, supermarket and easy to get around! The views were incredible.

7. I would like to first thank peter for allowing us to stay in his condo. this was our first time to maui.i really had some reservation on where to stay,because you really never know what you are getting into. YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED WITH THIS PROPERTY. We had six people staying with us. this location and view is the best of maui(in my opinion). There is plenty to keep you busy. you can snorkel directly in front of the mahana. peter�s place has the best view that you can ask for. this might sound too good to be true, but it�s the real deal.I Enjoyed every pary of our vacation. I wish that we had someone put confidence in our selection and you won�t go wrong with property . peter we will be back, Thanks for the GREAT place to stay..Sincerely,Derrick Odle
8 . I would like to make a few comments about Peter�s condo.First, the mahana is an excellent complex and it couldn�t be located more perfectly in all the world. the views from this condo are truly spectacular.There are several exceptional features in addition to the view that are not at all typical: there is a large sony TV, and excellent quality appliances an the Kitchen-not the standard fare. the decor and accessories are electric which make the unit homey and comfortable.
