Overview

Kahana Condo Rental Photos and Description

*MAHINA SURF 204 * MAUI TURTLE CONDO* *DREAMS COME TRUE, MEMORIES ARE MADE* Watch sea turtles feed in their natural habitat, whales, spinner dolphins, and sunsets from Mahina Surf 204 lanai. Fall asleep to the sounds of waves softly crashing on the beach, light scent of plumeria, and feel the ocean breezes coming through our louvered windows. Save time and effort, visit our website at mauiturtlecondo to see *videos of the grounds and snorkeling with lots of turtles in front of our condo.

Mahina Surf 204 is a peaceful, charming 2 bedroom/2 bath recently completely remodeled ocean front condo located just minutes from Lahaina, Ka'anapali, and Kapalua. Our special paradise is the perfect place for a couple, two couples, family, and/or friends to make those special memories. Just minutes from golf, snorkeling, sandy beaches, sailing, dining, Farmers' Market, hikes, shopping, gym, and a host of beach activities. From the ocean edge at Mahina Surf, you can watch people surf about a block from the condo, or go surfing yourself. Mahina Surf's 56 condos are on Maui's leeward shore, which is known for year round sunshine, trade winds, and pristine beaches. Relax in the heated saline pool, which feels so soft on your skin, enjoy the lush garden grounds, peacefully read a book by the turtles sunning themselves, take wonderful pictures, swim with the turtles, visit with family and friends, or sit at one of the ocean front benches and watch the sun set between the islands of Lana'i and Molokai.

Mahina Surf 204 is a comfortably furnished condo designed to allow you to experience the beauty of Hawaii in a tropical setting. Recently remodeled *fully equipped kitchen: cook on the glass top stove while watching beautiful ocean views, granite counter tops, new maple cabinets, wood beamed ceilings, refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, blender, and lots of dishes. Elegant travertine tile floors in a diamond pattern throughout the condo, which help keep it cool and clean. In the *living room: relax on 2 chaise lounges or the sofa, dining table, high ceilings, Sony 40' flat screen LED high def TV, wireless high speed internet, movies and Maui books. *2 Bedrooms with very comfortable beds purchased May 2012: master - king bed, loft - queen bed and twin bed, + sofa bed and twin floor futon for small child. *2 Baths - main - bathtub and shower, loft - shower. We recently purchased new towels, sheets, quilts, and kitchen supplies. There is also a safe, 2 beach umbrellas, ice chests, noodles, mats, and beach towels for your use. Prepare meals in 204 or outside at the 3 ocean front gas barbecues. Remember to watch for whales, turtles, dolphins, and sunsets. Then enjoy eating on our inside table or the new lanai table. All year round, watch the turtles feeding in their habitat from the lanai of 204, at the ocean's edge, sunning themselves on the sandy beach next door, or swim with lots of turtles. During November - April, watch the humpback whales breach, and mothers and their calves play before migrating back to Alaska.

Maui offers countless fun-filled activities year round. There simply is not a time of year that is not perfect to be on the island of Maui. Mahina Surf 204 has been in our family for many years. We have so many special memories, and look forward to many more. We hope that you will call us, and enjoy our special paradise. Since I am a retired teacher and Joe recently retired, please call us if our calendar shows rented during the dates you want. Sometimes, Joe and I can be flexible with our dates. We recommend MauiTurtle Condo for a romantic getaway for two, two couples, families, friends, adventure seekers, wildlife lovers, *where else can you sit and read a book with several sea turtles for hours...., snorkelers, photographers, perfect for the young and old. Fall of 2012, we started renting on our own. We showed the condo to several people: one couple rented for 78 nights, another couple the month of Feb., another couple and their friend are continuing to rent 204 since 2010 for a month each year, and have already reserved 2013 and 2014, a family rented 2 weeks in April, and then we came. We just listed on VRBO July 2012.

About Connie and Joe Ravenel

Ours names are Joe and Connie. We live in Washington, and have been married for 37 years. We have 4 adult children, 2 daughter-in-laws, and two granddaughters. Joe and I are both retired. I am a retired elementary school teacher.

Connie and Joe Ravenel purchased this condo in 1973

Why Connie and Joe Ravenel chose Kahana

Fantastic location, beautiful ocean views, incredible number of turtles, weather, away from crowds, but extremely close to some of the world's most beautiful beaches.

As many times as we've been to Mahina Surf 204, we are always very eager to return.

'Maui no ka oi' means 'Maui is the best', and the west coast is the best part. We love the area, the quiet, and the location minutes from Ka'anapali, Kapalua, Napili and Lahaina.

What makes this condo unique

Mahina Surf 204 has been a part of our family for 40 years. We have so many fond memories, and hope to make many more. We love it.

We are constantly remodeling, and trying to provide you with everything that you will need for a comfortable stay. In the last couple of years, we completely remodeled our special paradise: new kitchen, 2 bathrooms, beautiful travertine floors, new furniture, May 2012 new comfortable beds, deck table, lights, fans, painted the condo, water heater, LED flat screen TV, wireless internet, new dishes, and since we are now renting on our own, you get to use our towels, sheets, kitchen supplies, beach towels, and linens.

Mahalo,

Joe and Connie

Guestbook comments from the owner

My wife and I along with my brother and sister in-law stayed here for a week. We were in condo 204. It was very nice and everything was updated, what looked like very recently (wireless internet, flat screen TV, well maintained/clean).

Great view of the water. Love the fact that you can walk down and almost always see turtles at the feeding ground right in front. Also loved the BBQ grills that overlook the ocean, nice touch. It was also nice to have a quiet and peaceful place to come back to after a day of adventures.

Maui Turtle Condo at Mahina Surf stay was excellent

  • 5 of 5

The condo at Mahina Surf was spacious, clean, and well equipped. We are a family of four and the condo and complex were relaxed and convenient. You can enjoy your meals on the porch with an expansive ocean view. Mahina Surf enjoys a central location in West Maui, with easy access to both Lahaina and the excellent beaches near Napili Bay and northward. Maui Brewing co. and other restaurants are walkable from the condo. We stayed in January and the Green Sea turtles were thick about the condo--kids loved that. An excellent experience at this rental.

A Hidden paradise

  • 5 of 5

We, a family of four (parents plus teenagers 13 and 18) spent 6 days on Maui staying in a second floor condo at Mahina surf. The condo was perfect! Well functioning kitchen, two big bathrooms, nice masterbedroom and a topfloor where the teens could get some privacy. The view from the lanai (as well as from kitchen/living room) is absolutely stunning; we saw turtles and whales splash/blow every day, and the sunsets are wonderful! Perfect place to stay if you have a car and like to drive around to different beaches in the area. Lahaina is a nice little town for shopping, dinner and strolling. Also a lot of rentals (surf/snorkel) and excursions. The owners of the condo are very generous; offering books, dvd:s and beachtoys for free use, as well as wi-fi! There are also nice big barbecue-grills for free use in the garden. Big grocerystore and fish-store 3 min drive from the condo.

We definately plan to go back to Maui and Mahina surf is for sure our first choice! Having contact with Connie ahead of the trip made the feeling of being welcomed as long wanted guests very strong!

An Awesome Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

This property is exactly as described in the listing, if not better. The pictures are accurate, the view stunning, all with a very comfortable feel. It is fully stocked with everything you will need. As others have mentioned the turtles were so cute and fun to watch. The pool was spotless and all always the perfect temperature. It is away from all the hustle and bustle of Lahaina but very close and easy to get to. In my opinion the best of both worlds. Beaches are within walking distance. We will also never forget the sound of the ocean coming through the louvered windows all day. So relaxing. I can't wait to go back with the whole family and enjoy it again. Would absolutely recommend this place. You will not be disappointed. Connie was great to deal with very easy to talk to and reach when necessary. Thank you Connie for restoring my faith in VRBO!

Family vacation for sweet sixteen birthday girl

  • 5 of 5

Well we are still dreaming of the best vacation my family has ever experienced thanks to the beautiful condo we rented from Connie and Joe for 11 days. The pictures and description of this condo were correct in every detail and made our stay in Maui more enjoyable. The view of the ocean from the deck complete with rainbows and lots of swimming turtles convinced me and my family to have most of our meals prepared in the kitchen and to cook on the barbecues at the waters edge. Everything about this condo including the pool, laundry room, barbecues and landscaping is well maintained and has a very private feel. The location is a short distance to the beautiful town of Lahina and shopping in Whalers Village and of course a number of beautiful beaches which is the main reason we chose this condo as our base for adventure. I will never forget the sound of the waves and the cool tradewinds blowing through the louvered windows that create a quiet peacefull sleeping experience. If I plan a return trip to Maui in the not to distant future I would rent this property again.
