Overview

Honokowai Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Aloha and welcome to Mahina Surf #117! We are a unique, oceanfront boutique style condominium (with only 56 units!) located on Maui’s desirable West side. Our property was recently designated as non-smoking throughout.

Mahina Surf boasts stunning unobstructed ocean views where Humpback whales and their calves play during the winter and scores of green sea turtles call our beachfront their home year round!

Imagine yourself relaxing on your private lanai or poolside with a cool drink in hand. Picture the blue green ocean with the islands of Lanai and Molokai in the background. Take a dip in our beautifully tiled, heated saline pool, just steps from the ocean, and soak in the splendor of our beautifully landscaped grounds. You won’t even mind preparing the evening meal on our gourmet gas BBQ grills located at the ocean’s edge. Finally, at day’s end, there is no better place to watch the sunset; this is truly paradise!

Our condo is conveniently located within 5-10 minutes of some of Maui’s favorite tourist destinations. Just 3.5 miles to the south is the Kaanapali resort area and Whaler's Village with its famous beach, boardwalk, shopping and restaurants. Another 3 miles south of that is historic Lahaina town with its eclectic waterfront shopping district, restaurants and nightlife. Just 3 miles to the north of Mahina Surf is famed Kapalua with its championship golf courses and gorgeous beaches; perfect for body surfing, snorkeling, diving or just soaking in the sun. You are literally sandwiched in the middle of the best the Westside of Maui has to offer.

Mahina Surf #117 is a ground floor corner unit with twice as many windows as many of the other units on the property; taking full advantage of Maui's famous afternoon trade winds. You will love the smell and feel of these comforting breezes throughout your stay. As you look at our pictures, pay special attention to the windows; we are fortunate to be the beneficiaries of some of the most beautiful Hawiaiian landscaping on the island. Native hawaiian plants surround our unit, giving you a true sense of 'Aloha'.

The bedroom is appointed with a spacious King size bed, closet (with programmable safe) and a chest of drawers. Just down the hall to the right is an updated bathroom with shower enclosure, sink and 2 mirror vanity with shelving inside. (Plenty of room to store all of your toiletries.)

We have a fully equipped kitchen with refrigerator, oven, stove and microwave. It is well stocked with all of the cookware, utensils and appliances to satisfy any home chef. (Heck, we even have a juicer!) The kitchen opens up to a spacious living area with a large L-shaped queen sized sleeper sofa and chairs. We have an entertainment center with a flat screen LCD TV, Blu Ray/DVD, WiFi and iPod docking station. We also have library of Blu Ray's and DVDs for your viewing pleasure. (Although you may be distracted from your favorite TV show by the ocean views!)

We hope you enjoy our little piece of paradise as much as we do. It is truly the “best kept secret” on Maui!

About Rick and Kris Hacker

Hi, we are the owners Rick and Kris.

We are both in the beverage distribution business in Western WA. We love the outdoors and enjoy diving, swimming, kayaking and snorkeling with our two sons. We also love to cook!

Rick and Kris Hacker purchased this condo in 2011

Why Rick and Kris Hacker chose Honokowai

We have been coming back to Maui off and on for the past 25 years (since our honeymoon). Our favorite area in Maui is the West Side. We love snorkeling at Kapalua Bay and Honolua Bay, hitting the beach at Kaanapali, and playing in the surf at Napili Bay. We also really enjoy exploring the eclectic little town of Lahaina, especially when the art fair is up an running under the Banyan tree. Our condo is close to all of the places we like to go!

We are so thrilled to finally have our own little piece of paradise!

What makes this condo unique

We purchased our condo in Sept of 2011. We love the incredible views from the Lanai and the short walk right out the slider door to the pool, BBQs, and ocean. We especially enjoy walking down to the waters edge each night to see the turtles swimming and feeding right at our feet and watching the sun set. It never gets old!

Beautiful and as described

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for three nights with my husband and two year old son. The view of the ocean from the patio is amazing and the condo is equipped with everything you could possibly need, including a few beach toys for my son. Would stay here again without hesitation.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We appreciate the time we had in your condo. I chose it based on the pictures and repeat patrons. It was a good choice. The property is well kept. It was a great place to return to in the late afternoon following the day adventures. The pool is beautiful. The best Bbq spot on the island. The view here is phenomenal. The condo itself is comfortable and well taken care of. The owners are making gradual improvements. The beach chairs and snorkel gear was nice. I really liked the quality of people staying at this complex. Many people who have been staying here for years. It's a good choice.

Owner's Response: Aloha Robert, We are so glad you enjoyed your trip, the pool, BBQs, grounds and especially the people! You are so right about the continual improvements; we are always looking for ways to make our condo even better. In fact we have granite kitchen counter tops and a complete bathroom remodel coming at the end of June. You'll have to come back and stay with us again, so you can see it! Aloha Rick and Kris

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Maui and so our first time staying at this condo. Loved it!! The owners were really sweet and answered all of our questions beforehand. The place was clean and the grounds were beautiful! I still can't get over the view and how blue the water looked. The location also worked out really well for us as it was close to some of the events we needed to attend in Lahaina and easy access to the highway for all of our other side trips. We also grilled out on the grills overlooking the ocean and took plenty of walks to the nearby beach to see the sea turtles. Thank you so much for such a wonderful stay and vacation! We definitely plan to return. Also, while we didn't bring our daughter on this trip, there is a little portable high chair there and we also saw quite a few families staying there. We did make use of the chairs and took them along with the umbrella to the (public) beach in front of the Sheraton. They came in handy!

West Maui

We had an incredible time and would come back!! The Condo was perfect, stocked for cooking in! The most incredible view from the ground level lanai. There were plenty of windows to create views with privacy and fresh air, not too hot at night! The grounds were immaculate, pool views were stunning, Sunsets and turtles Galore. The whale watching was spectacular. We truly had a once in a lifetime experience, great location and a private paradise!

Very comfy!

  • 4 of 5

This is our second time in this great corner unit! Love the greenery surrounding the exterior. We appreciated the new extras that you provide. If I would suggest anything, it would be a little bathroom upgrade. Other than that, the condo resort and this particular unit make us feel right at home! We're thinking about a return in the next couple of years.

Owner's Response: Aloha DeeJay and Ray, So glad to have you as return guests and looking forward to you staying with us again when you return in two years! We're glad you enjoyed the upgrades; our goal is to make our condo the best it can be for all of our guests. We take on an upgrade project each time we visit. Last April we installed all new stainless appliances and lighting in the kitchen. We have granite counters coming in June to finish up the kitchen project. Bathroom is next!

BEACHES: Maui has so much to offer and of course it's beaches are some of the best! Great beaches near our property are Kahakeli, Napili and D.T. Fleming for soaking in the sun and playing in the waves.

SNORKELING: Kapalua Bay is a great beach for the beginning snorkeler, protected, calm water with nice coral formations & fish. Some of the Best snorkeling in Maui can be found at Honolua Bay a bit further north. Huge coral formations, fish, eels, turtles and more; but, it is not as protected.

TURTLES: If you want to swim with Turtles, try the waters right out in front of Mahina Surf, they are plentiful. There is a very secluded, very small sandy beach about 30 yards south of the property that gives easy entry into the water. (you do have to scramble over a short stretch of lava rock to get there.) If scrambling over lava, is not your idea of fun, there is an even easier entry into the water at Mahinahina Beach (also know as S-Turns Beach) about 2 blocks north of the property. Sandy beach with easy entry into the water. Jump in and swim to the left for turtles galore!

SHOPPING: Lahaina town is one of our favorites, it's an eclectic little town with great restaurants, historical sites and is a perfect place to look for a souvenir. Some of our favorite restaurants are Aloha Mixed Plate, Kimos, and Lahaina Pizza Co. For a really nice dinner, you can't beat the Lahaina Grill. We had one of our best meals ever there, and I'm not talking just on Maui, I'm talking anywhere!

Another terrific area for shopping and restaurants is Whalers Village at Kaanapali Beach. (About 5 minutes south) We enjoy grabbing 'Pu Pus' at the Hula Grill; the tables actually sit in the sand with great views of the ocean. It is an excellent place for people watching and a great place to take in the sunset.

GOLF: We are only a few minutes away from the famed Kapalua Golf Course home of the Hyundai PGA Tournament of Champions. Even if you don't golf, it's worth a trip to see the course and the surrounding area. The Plantation House Restaurant, in the club house at the Plantation Course is a great place to grab a delicious breakfast.

SIGHTS: For those wanting to tour the island, the Road to Hana is a trip that you must do at least once. The Windward side of the island is lush and green, beautiful jungle-like terrain with waterfalls around every turn. Black Sand & Red Sand Beaches and, of course, the Seven Sacred Pools.

Another popular attraction is the Haleakala Crater. A trip up to the crater to take in sunrise is definitely worthwhile. On the way back down from the crater, take a side trip and visit the Tedeschi Winery for a sampling of their Pineapple Wine or Champagne.
