Hale Mahina (Ha-lay-Ma-hee-na)
OCEAN FRONT & OCEAN VIEW!
The Hale Mahina means 'house of the moon'. Truly a paradise, nestled halfway between Kaanapali and Kapalua Resort areas. This oceanfront condominium is part of a low-rise property, set among lush tropical gardens and a small sandy beach.
Relax in the oceanfront pool or Jacuzzi. Snorkel or swim from the beach just steps from your Maui condominium. Our large one-bedroom condominium is fully equipped and tastefully decorated. Just minutes from the best golf courses, shopping, dining and the famous historic town of Lahaina.
From the oversized lanai, the views of the semi-private, golden sand beach and lush gardens are spectacular, as are the nearby islands of Lanai and Molokai. The condo interior is spacious and well equiped. The professionallly designed interior lighting system is the best we have experienced right down to the airliner style floor lights down each side of the hall floor and steps. The owners are responsive and full of Aloha. Honokowai is a pleasant and convenient area of Maui with shops, restaurants, and a supermarket nearby. We will be coming back to the Hale Mahina next winter.
My husband and I just spent 2 weeks in this wonderful condo. We have stayed at Hale Mahina before but this is the first time in this unit. I sometimes hesitate to write reviews because I don't like to give away secrets about amazing places because then everyone tries to stay here and then it's always booked up when I want to go. Having said that, the unit is everything as described. It is is very clean and well maintained. The condo has a great layout, well appointed kitchen, comfy bed and of course amazing views!!! We like the fact that this is a smaller complex and it is very quiet and relaxing. The grounds are beautiful as well. We enjoyed sitting on the lanai and watching the whales, turtles, turquoise water, sunsets and rainbows. We will definitely be back!
This is an amazing place to stay. My husband and I stayed here for the beginning part of our honeymoon and we couldn't have been happier. The lanai faces your own private beach, its quiet, very clean and anything you need is in the condo. The beach in front is perfect for swimming and relaxing if you don't want to venture out to the rest of the island or it's close to some other great beaches as well. The place looked exactly like the photos say, except that you are more on the beach than I expected - a bonus! We loved every minute of it and would recommend to anyone wanting to stay there. We will definitely stay there again. You would definitely need a car (although I think you need a car anywhere you stay in Maui). Linda was very helpful with any questions we had.
We stayed in this condo for a week and it was great. We constantly had turtles right in front of the condo and also had great whale watching. The beach area was one of the best on Honokowai and very private. Groceries and great restaurants just a short drive from the condo. This was our 4th trip to Hawaii and this was by far the nicest place we have stayed. Will definitely be back again!
My husband and I enjoyed our 10 night stay here. Very clean and nicely remodeled condo with ample lighting. Enjoyable kitchen to cook in, nice ocean views with lots of whales and turtles to be seen from the lanai. Close enough to hear the ocean from the living room/kitchen, felt like we were always at the beach! Good air flow thru the condo with the bedroom and lanai windows open. The bedroom is on the street side and has some traffic noise that we weren't used to, so we slept comfortably in the living room on the hidebed mattress instead. Convenient location. Excellent Value.
We had never been to Hawaii before and we were keeping our fingers crossed that we picked a good place to stay. It was perfect for us! We stayed 4 days and would loved to have stayed longer. It was just right for 2 people. The lawn and the beach were the best in the area. A very safe, convenient and quiet unit. Everyone that we met were so nice and all wished they were staying longer too. Photos reflect the condo well. Owners were great! We would definitely recommend this rental to anyone going to Maui. Also, recommend Mama's Fish House Restaurant,Sunrise at Haleakala, Parasailing and going thru galleries in Lahaina and snorkeling with the beautiful fish and turtles.
