Everything was absolutely perfect! Highly recommend!!
We stayed at the most amazing spot with the nicest host. The place was clean with an amazing view. When people say this a hidden gem no one is lying. We saw sea turtles EVERYDAY. Even swam right next to them on the beach. Not to mention the amount of whales we saw. The host has binoculars as well so you could see them from the balcony with no problems. The kitchen was fully equipped with everything you’d need. Not the mention ear plugs for the light sleepers. We did not use them since the sound of the ocean was relaxing and peaceful. Run dont walk to book this place 💙
The Hale Mahina is our favorite place to stay on the island with its beautiful views, well maintained property, golden sand beach with daily turtle visits and friendly people. Ken and Heidi's unit is lovely.
It’s the perfect condo unit at a perfect “off the beaten path” location on Maui.
The condo was great and exactly as advertised - that view!!! WOW! Honestly everything about this place was amazing - we couldn’t have asked for anything better. The one tiny negative was the noise from the parking lot and street that could be heard in the bedroom at night, but with the fans going was not terrible. The owner and property manager were easy to get ahold of and very responsive. We would definitely stay here again! Book it!! - you won’t be disappointed!
Ok, you're probably looking at dozens of possible places to stay on Maui and reading endless reviews, right? Well, you can stop right now, go see if your dates are available for this condo and book it immediately before it gets booked up. We'll wait while you go do that. :)
You may be thinking, "Why did I just book this because some random people said I should?". It's because you don't want to miss out on the perfect vacation rental for your trip.
Heidi and Ken are fantastic hosts. From the moment we booked (and we got VERY lucky as they had a cancellation that just happened to land when we could travel! Otherwise, they were booked solid) they couldn't have been more accommodating. We received a great welcome packet in the mail outlining all we needed to know. We literally had no questions because they answered everything! But if you DO have questions, I'm sure they can provide anything you might need.
So, the condo. The photos you see? Exactly, and I mean EXACTLY what you get. That view. Absolutely unreal. You could spend a whole week on that lanai and have the perfect vacation. The kitchen was so well equipped. Had everything we needed and more. The fridge with filtered water and ice maker was a nice touch! Water pressure in the shower was great. Bed was VERY comfy with a selection of pillows depending on what you like best.
Did I mention the view? :)
Parking was always very easy. Never had an issue finding a spot. The grass area at the beach is an exceptional place to watch the waves or see the stars at night (you can see SO many stars in this part of town, less lights from the big resorts).
We saw so many turtles from the lanai (both making their way to and from the beach for a rest and just swimming right by in the shallow water) that we lost count. Nice beach area to swim in as you can wade pretty far out and still stand up. Also some pretty decent snorkeling if the water is clear that day. We did most of our snorkeling in Kapalua Bay as the conditions were best up there during our stay.
And this place is super close to everything because of the central location. About 10 min by car to Kapaula. About 15 min to Lahaina Town. You can be just about anywhere on the West side in no time.
But, that lanai is so epic, you may not want to leave at all.
Thanks, Heidi and Ken! We very much look forward to coming back again soon!
Cannot say enough about what a great location and how nice and well kept the condo was. Hope to return.
Condo is well located, just a few minutes from grocery stores, amazing beaches and Lahaina. Unit is very clean and provides all the required amenities for a family of 4. Grounds are well kept and beach is great for swimming and snorkeling. We had turtles almost every day! Heidi replied very quickly to our questions during our stay. Do not hesitate to book!
Not only the condo is situated in the most convenient location of Lahaina ( 10 minute drive ), but the view from the balcony is just beyond stunning and it’s everything you dream about Hawaii ! The condo itself is lovely decorated and well equipped. The owner is super friendly and prompt to respond to any questions I had prior to booking and check in. Will definitely recommended for others. We may return in the very near future 😊
We really enjoyed our stay in this condo. The place is a beauty. The view from lanai is exactly what it looks like in the picture. When it is cloudy and very sunny it doesn’t look like it but at certain hours of the day around mid morning it looks exactly like it with different colors of blue. So beautiful!!! We spent most of our time in the lanai.
The condo is very clean and beautifully decorated. The details provided were so complete such as night lights, a binocular, games, beach towels, beach chairs, snorkeling gears, instructions to go to places and things about the condo. An instructions packet was sent to us before we flew.
The beach is frequented by turtles like others said. I called it Sunset Turtles as 1 or 3 come in at sunset. The sunset view is stunning. One night I watched a marriage proposal during a beautiful sunset from our balcony. A magical moment.
The beach is swimmable during low tide so get your tide timetable app or just see the waves. The access to the beach is easy for young people. There is a stairs to go down to it but on the bottom we had to go climb up and down a 2-ft rock. It is doable but legs are short so be careful.
The swimming pool and hot tub are also nice and there is a bbq and 3 picnic tables. We eat our meals in our lanai mostly or going out to nearby restaurants. There is a walkable place, a casual Venezuelan restaurant, called Miss Arepa that we really like.
Don’t hesitate. Don’t look at any other listings. Book this place now!
The property is beautiful with a private beach and tropical flowers blooming everywhere. Almost every day 1-3 turtles napped on the beach. We could see whales all over the place from the lanai. There was a little mellow surf breaking for some long boarding right in front of the condo.
We had planned all sorts of outings all over the island, but this spot had everything and we stayed at the property almost the entire time! We really didn’t need to leave. It’s close in proximity to Lahaina and Napili. There is a grocery store right up the road. The Fish Market restaurant was so good we are their twice in a row.
The condo itself is well stocked with nearly everything you need.
It’s a fabulous location, and the owners were responsive and helpful all throughout the trip. I will definitely stay here again! Thanks Heidi and Ken!
The views from this condo are Beautiful ! The condo is spacious and very comfortable and the Grounds are beautiful with flowers everywhere…. We also loved watching the breaching Whales from our balcony.
The condo was exactly as described which is so refreshing since so many are exaggerated.
The unit was updated and very clean. The view is spectacular, only a few feet from the water.
A real bonus was the comfortable king size bed in this unit. Most that we have stayed in before at Hale Mahina were queen beds.
The weather was spectacular and loved seeing the turtles come on the beach daily and sleep.
We shall return 🥰
It does not get better than this! The view and location are amazing. Private beach with sea turtles everyday. The condo is very nice with everything you need for a perfect stay. The Ocean views are spectacular. You will never want to leave. The hosts are super responsive and accommodating. Can't wait to go back.
Beautiful condo and oceanfront view could not have been better. Very comfortable and relaxing.
We loved the place. Everything we needed here and amazing view. We saw a turtle on the beach just resting the day we arrived. Loved it all! Our bed was so comfortable too.
We’ve stayed at the Hale Mahina 3 times, but this was our favourite unit by far, in terms of the modern decor and the view from the lanai.. Heidi and Ken are fabulous hosts. Heidi responds to any questions immediately and they made sure to pay attention to the smallest details to make our stay perfect. We enjoyed using the binoculars provided to watch the whales go by. We particularly liked that the fridge had ice and purified water and the bistro table outside was perfect for watching the turtles resting on the beach below. The two extra chairs on the lanai were perfect for when we wanted to be out of the direct sun. Thank you again to Heidi and Ken for renting their beautiful vacation home to us. They truly are super hosts! We can’t wait to return again next year!
Perfection plus! Everything about this property is A+++. From the minute you walk into the condo and hear the ocean - then you see the view - the view - the view!!! Its amazing! You are directly ocean front! The picture posted is exact! The property itself is kept immaculate. One of the few properties that is ocean front with your own private beach. Every afternoon one or two turtles would swim up and stay there until morning. What a treat - they were amazing! The condo itself is great! Perfectly furnished, great kitchen with everything you need to cook if you so desire, comfortable bed and just an overall great one bedroom condo! And then there's Ken and Heidi. They are truly 5 Star owners. The Welcome Package they sent out was spot on. I've never seen such a complete welcome package including great restaurants, great places to visit, and overall wonderful information regarding Maui.
I have already recommended this condo to all our friends and our kids and hopefully they will get to have the same wonderful vacation as we were privileged to have.
Thank you Ken and Heidi!
Heidi and Ken's condo is so nice! It was a perfect place for us. It is centrally located to many local coffee shops, great restaurants, and amazing beaches. It was wonderful to wake up to their amazing view. They had everything we needed. We would definitely recommend Heidi and Ken's place!
We loved our stay at Heidi and Ken’s! They were more than accommodating, responsive, friendly, and overall just great hosts. Their condo was perfect. The view doesn’t get much better, it was clean, centrally located ( in between all of the touristy areas but not touristy itself). We will be back!
We can not think of a single negative. Loved every minute of our stay. Very peaceful and quite.
Clean and so nice and comfortable.
Beautiful place! Having a washer and dryer was a life saver. Everything was great. The whole experience from the interactions with the owners to the on site management. Made our trip that much more special.
This was our second time staying in this condo and we will always come back and stay here whenever we are in Maui! Perfect location. Very clean condo that had everything we needed. The small private beach is amazing. Thank you Heidi and Ken! Our stay was well worth the wait!
We had an amazing week and Heidi couldn’t have been more helpful. The photos don’t do justice to the amazing views from the patio. We also really enjoyed the private beach and small community of guests who gather for the sunsets and barbecues. Can’t say enough good things about this place.
Lovely view and accomodations, much needed break from reality!
My daughter and I stayed here and had a wonderful time. Heidi was always quick to respond with answers to our questions. Everything and then some was in that condo. The beach chairs was a big help as we wanted to check out other beaches. We will be back for sure!
Beautiful views and property. Beach right in front of the unit with clear water, turtles, and snorkeling. Short trip to other areas but walkable to some restaurants as well. Loved our stay here and would definitely recommend.
