This was a great place to stay. Make sure to walk down to the waterfront and follow the path to the right of the property to the little beach if you want to see sea turtles basking in the sun. This rental was perfect for our family. It was comfortable and fit us well. Its slightly dated, but honestly with the kids I was more comfortable than I would have been with everything fancy. It was simple and beachy and had a nice feel. It was clean and comfortable. I would stay here again.

Our family of 5 spent a week in this unit. It was very clean upon arrival. The view from the lanai is INCREDIBLE. The whales were very active and we all had a great time pointing them out. Seating was ample on both the sectional and the dining table. We were even able to pull a 5th chair out on the lanai to eat dinner together overlooking the ocean. On 4 of the days, we had double-digit number of turtles come up on the beach next door. So cool! Only reasons for not giving the 5th star are that the beds are uncomfortably firm. My wife woke up sore most mornings. Also the drain in the main bathroom sink and the shower in the upstairs bath was really slow to drain. Needs some draino or something. Outstanding overall and we would definitely pick this one again in the future.

We loved our stay at Mahina Surf. The location was nice and quiet, and an easy drive to most places. We loved coming home at the end of the day to the views, the chill vibe and the great community that gathers here. We will come again for sure! Thanks for having us.

We loved the location, the views were amazing and we were close to a lot of things. The condo was well equipped and super clean. Only downside was the pots and pans should be replaced, but if you’re not doing much cooking this won’t matter. I highly recommend this condo!

To start the location was perfect right in the middle of everything. No late parties or noise was great. The sea turtles and locals there were great and friendly. The property keep all of us comfortable from 67 yrs old to 13. Absolutely life changing

The property is in a nice location. Excellent view of the ocean and spend the day just watching whale activity. The pool is also heated (for real) which I have stayed in other resorts with "heated" pools but they're not as heated as this. Great interaction with staff - they're all very friendly and accommodating.

the check in was a little stressful after a full day of air travel because the key was not left in the correct place but after getting in touch with Darren all was taken care of in just a matter of minutes The condo was even better than expected with a beautiful view of the ocean from the bslcony we highly recommend this condo to anyone

The property is always well manicured and exactly what we have come to love and expect from the Mahina Surf. This unit is adorable and everything the two of us needed. The bedroom door was slightly difficult to close but that’s the least of our concerns. Great experience all the way around.

Lovely spot north of Lahaina & Ka’anapali. Near West Maui beaches and all sights this side of Maui. Condo was perfect for our party of 3. All the little personal touches made it super comfortable to stay here. Lovely grounds, quiet family-friendly resort, heated pool is nice on a windy day. We Would come back!

We had a great stay! The community is quiet, and oceanfront with a spectacular view. The condo is close to zip lining, many beaches, and Whalers Village where you can take cruises. Unit comes with beach gear including chairs, umbrella, cooler, and snorkeling gear. There is even an Alexa to play music as you hang out on the lanai. Laundry is not in the unit, but rather a community laundromat. We saw so many sea turtles and whales! I recommend this place 100%.

The property was beautiful with amazing views and condo was clean. Loved it! However, I did have 2 days when I had no hot water. It was related to a breaker issue and property manager responded and corrected the problem quickly both times. This was also the case when there was a problem with the fridges ice maker.

It was absolutely gorgeous! The property, the views and condo all top notch! Only issue bedroom windows face parking lot and street which made it loud with car traffic. Would consider staying again. Pool was nice and warm too. Able to see plenty of whales too!

We came out here to celebrate my daughter’s birthday. It was the perfect spot for us! The heated pool was so nice after a day at the beach, incredible view of the water, easy access to restaurants near by and beaches, and friendly staff as well as other people staying here. I would definitely recommend this place.

This property is amazing. It is an end unit 10’ from the ocean with ocean view from every and crashing wave you can fall asleep to. The condo is clean and spacious with an upstairs bedroom and bath. Very comfortable with a nice kitchen with ocean views also. The pool is great for kids. And the property is beautiful. The ocean is accessible from the other side of the property for surfing, paddle boarding, snorkeling, ect. Lots of turtles and whales viewed from the deck. Very satisfying.

This vrbo is very private and laid back. We enjoyed the sound of the ocean at night and we were able to watch sea turtles and whales from our lanai. It was a perfect place to relax. There were barbecues available for use and everything we needed was there. Thank you!

We used the condo as a base to explore Napili and Fleming beaches, saw turtles just around the corner from the condo, and had a couple amazing dinners in Kanapaali. It’s a short drive there and to Napili, but there is not too much in the way of restaurants or shops in walking distance. We did hit Miso Phat for yummy sushi, and the Whaler’s general store - both walkable. The warm, ocean front pool and stunning views were icing on the cake for our stay. And the condo comfortably slept 5 adults.

Wonderful property. Right on the water. It was great to listen to the surf from the condo. We saw whales breaching from the condo and enjoyed daily visits to the shore to watch the sea turtles. The pool is warm and great for the kids. Excellent hosts. We'll definitely return to this property if we come back to Maui.

I enjoy this resort. It is quiet and relaxing. I was happy with the condo. The bed was comfortable. I liked the view. I was able to watch the whales right from the lanai. Love the turtles. The only thing I could suggest is adding a can opener and some pot holders to the kitchen.

The view from the room and property was amazing. Sitting right on the waters edge and short walk down to a beach. Had access to ocean straight from property where you could stand on rocks and watch the sea turtles. We even caught a glimpse of some whales passing by while grilling in the well maintained gas grills. Kids enjoyed the pool in the evenings while we cooked at grill and watched beautiful sunsets. Our room had enough beds for all 3 children to have their own 2 in the loft and a softer sleeper. No a/c but was not needed as the fans supplied kept us comfortable in early December. We felt comfortable and at home during our wonderful stay. Would gladly stay here again in the future!

We loved our stay! The home was clean and well-stocked with towels, blankets, soaps/paper towels/coffee. There was a full kitchen with everything we needed and the beach gear was a great plus. We used the two sets of snorkel gear and it was great not to have to rent the gear elsewhere. You can see and hear the ocean from the lanai, and the location is easy to get around all of West Maui. One parking pass with spots always available in the lot. Thanks!

Stayed here in January 2023 with 6 adults. A bit small for 6 adults but we made it work and the views made it all worthwhile. Able to see whales from the patio all day long. Beautiful grounds, turtles right on the beach every day, pool always clean. Management group offered us late check out towards the end of our stay. Fantastic location & would definitely stay again. (forgot to make this review after our visit, leaving it now after the heartbreaking Lahaina fire). This was our first visit to Maui - our thoughts & love to all.

My family lives on another part of the island and we stayed at the Turtle Condo for a long weekend to celebrate my nephew’s birthday. The location was beautiful and the condo was comfortable and well appointed. The kids loved the pool and the beaches were great. Saw so many turtles. The grill area was well set up and beautiful for sunset. Enjoyed the beautiful views from the lanai. Thank you for a lovely stay.

The condo was as deceived and very clean. The view is incredible with the most amazing ocean views from every window. Good, clean pool; grills; decent parking; and great snorkeling just steps from the condo. We saw dozens of sea turtles, lots of fish, and a couple of eels. I will definitely stay here again if I come back to Maui!
