Recent Hale Mahina Reviews


Hale Mahina is a wonderful complex. Low rise with a small pocket beach providing ocean access, BBQs, a good sized pool, a hot tub and nicely landscaped grounds with plenty of sun loungers to enjoy the awesome view. Casual but classy. It is well placed to easily access supermarkets, stores and all kinds of eating options from 5 star to casual restaurants, bars, excellent takeaways and food trucks, something for every mood. It is also well placed for all West Maui attractions and is an easy drive for day trips all over the island. Sandy’s unit is very nice and is very well placed within the complex to enjoy the 180 degree ocean front view from the third floor, one of the best views in the whole of Hawaii with the sun setting directly in front of the lanai. The condo is larger than most in the area, has a full sized washer/dryer and is equipped with everything you might need. Most of the attractions and facilities in West Maui are open and very welcoming of tourists. We had a wonderful time and would not hesitate to stay here again.

The view is spectacular especially from the master bedroom. However. The home is outdated and needs upgrades and deep clean. The guest bathroom shower was very wonky and we found baby cockroaches in the kitchen on a couple days. We kept the kitchen spotless and put all food, including dry food in the fridge. It can get warm in the loft and back bedroom. The view and location is why I gave this a 4; otherwise, a 3

We spent an 8 day vacation in maui at this location. There were some good things and some bad things about this property. Pro: location is central to both Napili and Kaanapali and the condos are quiet and right on the beach. The place is spacious and did provide beach towels and chairs. The kitchen was well stocked. Cons: shabby....desperately in need of a good cleaning. There was literally thick dust in one of the bedrooms and the general upkeep is low. Advertised for 8 people. There was bedding for 6 people. We called for a blanket for the pull out bed and took two days to get one. We had someone sleeping which beach towels for warmth. Beware that although the other residents of the condo complex are VERY nice, it's an older group and there are NO ball or pool sports allowed on the grass.....so don't think you are going to toss a ball around with your kids. Finally we had a check out at 11:00-noon as stated in our instructions and at 10:30 we had a man who knocked and said he needed us out and stood outside the door and waited until we we hurried and packed and left. We had a great time with our family but would not probably book again due to everything noted above.

Great property with an incredible view in a perfect location. The unit was updated and well maintained. Owners were very helpful and quick to respond. They alerted us when the property was ready allowing us to check in early. Been to Maui many times but the first time at this property. You cannot beat the view and location. So relaxing and a great way to celebrate our 25th.

Location is great - it is a mix of full time residents short & long term renters - very friendly they have a happy hour ritual at sunset - turtles roll up on the beach - host had everything we needed with laundry, dish soap some everyday items so we didn’t have to buy some of the everyday stuff - everything was perfect!

This is our third time staying at Hale Mahina and it won’t be our last. The property is beautiful! This condo had all the amenities you need. Would definitely recommend to family and friends. We love the short walk to Bad Ass Coffee and shopping plaza. The view is worth a million dollars. Don’t hesitate booking this condo.

Numerous issues, as in Door knob, locking mechanism was very sticky, and very difficult to lock the door one of the laps on off switch did not work so to turn light out would have to unplug it Silverware and eights were sticky and needed to be re-cleaned before use. Cabinets had the odor of mold, the floors were not very clean, and made the bottom of our feet black. Teapot was rusty, and so was one of the knives We just say that the price of the unit would suggest a five star product, however, none of these issues by themselves was a detriment to our trip, we just more of the condition of a three star resort. And might add, we have stayed in many units at the Hale Mahina and this unit seems to be the darkest of them all, kinda like you’re in a cave. Please note, we did not contact the property manager until after the visit, so our five star review of them is only there because this form for us to put an answer in that line. I have had previous contact with the property management company, and they do communicate and respond to issues.

I came on my own for a little rest and relaxation and a break from my family -- this condo was perfect!! Beautiful ocean front views, sunsets, sandy beaches, and turtles and whales all day every day! The unit was extremely clean, well-appointed and the kitchen had everything I could possibly need. I will definitely come back!

We were staying at a neighboring unit and had to unexpectedly extend our trip. Heidi’s unit was available and boy did it exceed our expectations. We’ve stayed at Hale Mahina numerous times over the years and Heidi’s unit is by far the best we have ever seen. Nicely remodeled, immaculate decor and clean as a whistle. Probably the nicest view too. Whales were abundant and so were the turtles. Heidi was super responsive and helpful. She got right to work making sure the unit was ready for us and she couldn’t have been more accommodating. We will absolutely be staying here again and again and again! If you’re lucky enough to find availability, book this unit! You won’t be disappointed!

If you are an entitled 70+ year old, this is a place for you! Our family stayed at this property many years ago, and really enjoyed it so we returned. This time we were met with many of the condo owners, which happened to be elderly people who do not enjoy guests at ‘their’ property. We were treated so poorly and made to feel so uncomfortable it was hard to enjoy the property. We definitely won’t be returning and I regret having recommended Hale Mahina to people previously. Save yourself thousands of dollars and go someplace you’ll feel welcome!

I enjoyed my stay. The location is perfect for doing all the activities as it is centrally located. Parking is an issue. No warning was given to essentially DO NOT PARK IN THE GARAGE. The signage for parking in the garage is inaccurate. It damaged my rental car and cost me over $1000 to repair. The property manager (Larry) said “we put signs up but people still hit it”. My trip would have been perfect aside from this.

Hale Mahina is a very special place to many of the people who continue to come back year after year. The condo was excellent beyond measure. We watched whales breach every day from the lawn and enjoyed having no other plans. We feel so lucky to have found such a wonderful community through the years of staying here. What started as a quick visit turning into an engagement :) We can't wait to come back!

Place was fantastic, we would certainly come again. Nice beach right out font with daily turtle visits. Whales were very active in the distance. As it was late January, we didn’t need AC, which was not available in this unit anyway. The louvered window design of many of these older beach front condo’s can make it a bit noisy at bedtime on the parking lot side of the building where the bedroom is located. But it was not a show stopper by any means.

The view from the lani is beautiful. We stayed during the height of whale season and were treated to views of many whales over most of the stay. There were also numerous sea turtles that swam off the shore and some that came up onto the beach to sun themselves. During the weekend the number of people swimming, paddle surfing, and snorkling was greatly increased and with that, the whale and turtle sightings dramatically decreased as would be expected with increased human activity in the waters. The only downside to the entire 10 day stay was the neighboring dog that barked off and on all day and all night. Since this occurred only the first 7 days of our stay we were unable to determine if it belonged to another guest in the complex and was not a permanent resident or neighborhood pet, but the guests prior to our stay had also mentioned the barking dog in their comments. Overall the stay was fun and enjoyable.

This property is awesome! Unit was clean, comfortable, and well stocked. The complex is only two buildings, which helps limit the number of people around. Not having AC was not an issue. Host responded promptly to questions and was very easy to work with. We watched whales and turtles from our lanai each day we were there. The view of the ocean from the lanai cannot be beat. You are very close to the ocean. The sand area of the beach is smaller but adequate. There is plenty of lawn space and beach chairs for everyone.

This unit has everything you need for a relaxing, carefree week in Maui. Fantastic private beach, snorkeling, pool and hot tub just steps away from the unit. Sunset views and whale watching from the lanai were amazing. This is our fifth visit to Maui, second time to this condo complex. The owner was accomodating and easy to reach with any questions we had. So far, our favorite place to stay.

Overall we enjoyed our time and for the price it was ok. Hawaii is hard on buildings and appliances and I appreciate it can be hard to maintain everything. There was a lot rust and the overall condition of the unit was just ok. The one thing that was really strange and unprofessional was actually the WiFi password. They choose to make people enter a specific faith-based affirmation. That's fine if it's your residence, but this is a business relationship and you should probably be more sensitive to other faiths and keep something as ubiquitous as a wifi password non-relegious. I will probably stay at the property again, but will likely choose another unit. For what it's worth the A building has better sunset views- especially from the 3rd or 4th floor. I also recommend staying farther away from the big, loud dog living next door that woke us up early every morning.

My three friends and I went for new years and to have a tropical get away. I will definitely be back! This unit is great: spacious, amazing view, private beach, pool/grill, lawn, and sea turtles. It is in such a perfect location too. The property manager was onsite and very responsive. The owners of the unit are also very communicative. Note there is no AC (as many units do not have this in Maui), but they have plenty of fans provided to keep the air moving and cool. I highly recommend staying here!

We loved our stay at the Gel'n condo. It was exactly as described but even better. Valerie has furnished the condo with everything you could need and not even realize that you needed. The oceanfront location was amazing and we saw lots of turtles, there was even one that came to visit on the beach. It is a great location and a tranquil setting. Valerie was very quick in responding with any questions and accommodating to our needs. We hope to visit again soon.

The condo was great and had all the amenities we could have wanted and then some. Loved the cooler and beach chairs, we used them every day. Lanai was great and view was amazing! We were concerned about no ac but nice breeze through the jealousy windows and the bed was awesome. Check in was easy and the hosts were great. We would come again.

Overall we had a nice time and definitely enjoyed the lawn/beach area, etc. In addition, the apartment itself was very nice, and as advertised - no complaints. However, we were rather disappointed at the fact that the neighbor's dog barked every night between 2a - 4a, waking us up. In addition, the road noise was pretty loud, especially when people on motorbikes drove by, and since there really aren't windows that close tightly, it was hard to block out the noice. Also, the refrigerator door locking for several minutes after each time you open it is kind of a nuisance - not sure if that's something you can change? Lastly, the property manager entered the apartment while we were in the bedroom getting dressed, which was a little awkward. Again, lovely waterfront area and apartment, but not sure we would rent it again, given the above. Thanks.

Beth's place is just exactly as described and pictured. The elevator and flooring had me thinking "Oh no, this is not good". so that part could really use some TLC. When we opened the door and walked in, it was awesome!! Clean, updated, the view and beach front is exactly what you want for a relaxing vacation. I would have been happy to just stay there and only do a few store runs and a little sight seeing. After all that's why we went there. Beth has everything you can imagine and need in the complete condo. Awesome place!!

This place has everything you need - an extremely comfortable bed, roomy bathroom, gorgeous kitchen and perfect lanai. The beach access was very easy to get to as well - we were able to see so many sea turtles from here! Thank you so much Hula Hideaway for the amazing stay!

Our family had everything needed right in front of us to enjoy our vacation on Maui. Waking up to the view with the sound of the ocean waves made it extra special. We snorkeled at the private beach just steps away from the condo while kids played all day in the sand and pool. It was perfect! We barbecued a couple of times in the backyard which was nice because it saved us some money to spend on other fun activities to do. Definitely worth every minute and penny. This was truly paradise! The condo was so beautiful and clean. We made some of the most amazing memories while being there. We couldn’t have been happier. Thanks again for sharing your place with us.
