Overview

Maui Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Hale Mahina Beach Resort (Ha-lay Ma-hee-na) is located on the world famous West Coast of Maui adjacent to the West Maui Mountains, between Kaanapali and Kapalua in the beautiful oceanfront town of Honokowai. The Hale Mahina Beach Resort is one of the most sought-after resorts on Maui's west side.

This serene beachfront condominium property is set among beautiful tropical gardens and is directly on the ocean with a stunning private sandy beach. It's a haven in paradise.

Read a book on a comfortable lounge chair and enjoy the warm breeze off the ocean while sitting under a palm tree just a few feet away from the beach. Watch the magnificent whales swim by November through May.

This unit is on the 4Th/top floor where you have an unobstructed view and can see the palm trees waving in the wind, and the ocean waves from inside the condo while grabbing a cold beverage and snack in the kitchen, sitting on the couch watching TV or lying in the California king sized bed in the lofted master bedroom!

This comfortable remodeled condo is a breath of fresh air, brightly decorated with a Hawaiian touch for a fun and whimsical feel. They don't refer to this unit as the 'Fish' condo for nothing!

The lofted unit includes two bedrooms, two baths, a fully

equipped kitchen, laundry, and entertainment.

Your own private lanai offers a comfortable lounge chair for relaxing, bar height dining table and chairs to ensure your view of the beautiful ocean vistas, the islands of Lanai and Molokai, and breath taking sunsets! It is truly spectacular!

Hale Mahina is 40 minutes from the main airport at Kahului, 2 minutes from the West Maui Kapaula airport, 5 minutes from Kaanapali, and 35 minutes to Kihei & Wailea.

The Hale Mahina Resort is adult and kid friendly - no pets or smoking please!

You will truly be amazed by the beauty you will experience and the

memories you will make here! It's what life in paradise is all about!

We guarantee you won't be disappointed!

The sleeping accommodations in this unit are excellent - we are super picky about comfortable mattresses so we made sure to buy comfy ones! (Isn't it the worst when you're on vacation and the beds are uncomfortable?) The master lofted bedroom has a huge California king size bed. The second bedroom has a comfy queen size bed, and there is a handy queen size pull-out bed in the new living room sofa. This condo sleeps 1-6 people.

Both bathrooms include a tub and shower combination with full vanities and storage space.

The full kitchen includes a refrigerator with water & ice in the door, dishwasher, flat-top range, microwave, blender, rice maker, tea kettle and coffee maker. (Plus all the other things you need in a kitchen!)

There is a full size washer and dryer for your convenience right in the condo! Laundry detergent is provided. You will find an iron and ironing board in the first floor bedroom closet. Fresh new beach and bath towels are provided for your use. The linens are new fresh and of high quality purchased from The Pottery Barn.

This condo also includes cable; High Definition TV with VCR & DVD (lots of VHS and

DVD movies available), 3 ihome stations for your ipods, CD player (Hawaiian music CD's on location) and a cordless land line telephone with free long distance in the US and Canada.

This unit has ceiling fans in each room, but is not air-

conditioned. The ocean breezes and 2 operable skylights keep the condo cool!

You basically have all the amenities of home but you're in Paradise!

Relax in the Oceanside pool and Jacuzzi. Snorkel, swim, boogie

board and surf from the beach just steps from your condominium.

Comfortable lounge chairs are provided. Grill your own fresh fish on the charcoal BBQ provided and enjoy a picnic on the tables next to the ocean.

Nearby you can discover Kahana Beach, Kapalua Beach and tennis

gardens, Snorkeling, Championship Golf courses, Windsurfing,

Parasailing, Surfing, Hiking Trails, Horseback Riding, Diving,

Jet Ski rentals, shopping at Whalers Village open air shopping

center, Lahina's Front Street, Restaurants, Luau's and much more!

We have vacationed in Maui for several years and have discovered most of the fun adventures and activities on the Island. We would be glad to share our secrets with you upon request!

Here are some testimonials:

'This is without a doubt the best location on this Island, we know - we looked! The view, the whale action, the condo. It is just gorgeous! After nightly conversations and pool side chats, all 4 of us have just one question...are you aopting...um...because we are like so available!'

'Thank you for letting us have the opportunity to stay in your

condo. I knew that a condo in Hawaii directly on the ocean would be beautiful, but never could I have imagined the sunsets and sealife that we would see right from the lanai - whales, dolphins and sea turtles! We felt so comfortable there. After touring Maui for 10 days, we feel that we could never find a better location to stay. The décor of the home, and the pool right next to the beach were just an extra bonus! We will recommend your place to anyone that is planning a trip to Maui!!'

'We just got back from Maui yesterday and had a wonderful trip! We

can see why you like to be there - the condo is lovely and very

comfortable, the beach is sandy and private, the ocean breezes are

warm and the waves lapping the shore are so restful. We accomplished our mission of rest and recuperation - we hated to leave.

About Linda Dehkes

Why Linda Dehkes chose Maui

Larry & Jo were the first to discover the Hale Mahina Beach Resort on an anniversary vacation several years ago. They immediately fell in love with the resort and location. They told Ken & Linda about the resort and it was decided that both families would vacation there for spring break 1997. What a vacation they had!

After a couple more trips to the resort one thing led to the next and they decided to pool their funds and purchase A-406 Hale Mahina Beach Resort in January 2000.

Really cute

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the fish condo, it was clean and cute and was fully stocked with all the necessities we needed (toiletries, kitchen, water toys, and even first aid). I don't think we could of asked for a better stretch of private beach either. I loved the grassy area and the sand and water just beyond. The pool was in perfect condition and extremely clean and well kept. We also got to see sea turtles almost daily, either snorkeling or sunning on the sand. The only negatives were no air conditioning, it got really hot in the condo (especially upstairs) we would keep the front door open to get a good breeze going thru and there were fans provided thruout the condo that did help but still really hot. The other issue was for the guest room downstairs the traffic noise it horrible. Luckily we stayed upstairs and didn't hear a thing with all the fans running but it was extremely loud in the downstairs room. I wouldn't of been able to sleep in that room at all because of the noise. i would suggest if you have a bunch a rowdy kids or looking to do a lot of partying you look somewhere else, I saw quite a few people and kids be scolded for the noise, having a toy in the pool, getting to close to the turtles, and someone made a snide comment to my husband about putting some umbrellas in the grass. Didn't bother us to much because we like the quiet and calmness but just know they are watching and will say something to you.

A not to be missed gem!!!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about our stay was amazing! The fish condo is well equipped and in a perfect location. We had an extremely relaxing family vacation and spent a lot of time in the condo, the pool and "private" beach. You will not want for a thing! It definitely felt like a home away from home. We enjoyed the games, books, fully stocked kitchen and outdoor grills. The view is to die for! Paradise and a private oasis all in one. The local flora is exotic, not to mention the fauna. We were highly entertained by the sea turtles and geckos right outside the front door. Linda was amazing to deal with. Very personable, pleasant and efficient. We can't wait to return!!

Views, Views, and Views

What a nice experience! First, Linda is a tremendously nice and pleasant person to deal with, I felt like I had known her for years. I had a few glitches getting the trip started, but Linda worked with me to make a few loose ends meet and bring home the final details.

For the condo, if you are looking for a fun resort to frisk, frolic, and get loud, this is not for you. Go to the Westin, Honua Kai, etc. if that's your flavor. If you are looking for amazing views (and I mean amazing), serenity, and that old Hawaii get away feel, pack your bags and get on your way. The unit was right on the beach. Linda's description and pictures describe it very well, though I found it even a little more likable when we arrived.

The minute I looked out the lanai onto the beach, a sea turtle was coming in for a rest. Turns out this is normal. The waves crashing outside, the palms blowing in the breeze, the rainbows so vibrant a postcard could never do it justice; greeted us more often than not in the morning. The sun shone, the rain came, the winds blew, all in perfect Hawaiian harmony. Speechless.

The bedroom in the front (away from the beach) with a 2nd open loft bedroom upstairs was able to accommodate our family of five, utilizing the sofa bed in the living room. It was nice to have a fully outfitted kitchen so we could cook and enjoy our family time instead of always finding places to eat. There were grills by the ocean that made cooking a pleasure. The grills were not gas, so bring charcoal. The pool was not some huge resort type swimming hole, but the kids had fun and the hot tub was nice. Again, if you are looking for a way to relax and forget reality, this was spot on.

To ensure that this is a complete review, there are a few areas to point out in balancing our experience. The unit is not air conditioned, so there was a little balancing act of letting the air flow through the unit to try and cool it down at night. Also, because it is Hawaii, the humidity was constantly very high. The first few nights did not cool down much as the days were hottish (85 degrees) and the nights only dropped into the mid 70's. The rains came in on the final few nights, really making it extra comfortable. The front bedroom's wall consisted of floor to ceiling louvered windows, which did not shelter the sound from the road out front, but it wasn't a deal breaker.

Overall, this was a GREAT experience that I would, and probably will, repeat. Mahalo!

Best Condo Ever

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect. The condo as other reviewers have stated is not only well stocked with kitchen supplies etc, but the whole condo as is really methodically well organized from all the beach items you may ever dream of needing to the towel closet, to the multiple storage for anything you may want to unpack such as jewelry, toiletries, kids stuff, gifts you may buy. Linda gives you a four page handout before arriving of items you should pack to items they have, which is very appreciated and helpful. Linda is responsive to any questions you may have and allowed my family both early check-in and late check-out.

We miss the fish condo dearly already.

Thank you we will be back,

Rachel, Greg, and Camille

The Fish Condo A-406 Hale Mahina Maui

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved the Fish condo. Clean and incredibly well decorated. It had all we needed for our stay. Full stocked kitchen supplies. boogie boards, binoculars. We have never been to Hawaii and to have a place as nice as this wants us coming back again. The view off the balcony was like a picture from a postcard. The detail in making our the accommodations were made so simple. Linda was incredibly easy to get a hold of and very flexible with all our needs. I'd recommend the Fish Condo to anyone without reservation.

Loved our stay!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the fish condo. It exceeded all our expectations from the moment we walked through the door. It was very clean, decorated beautifully, and had everything we could ever need. Rose does an amazing job keeping the condo looking so fresh. The view was even better than we hoped for and we used the lanai constantly. There is no air conditioning but the downstairs was cool through our entire stay, using only the ceiling fans. The upstairs was warm in the afternoon, but using the floor fans cooled the loft for sleeping.

We loved the beach and swimming area right at the property. The water has a nice sandy bottom. Turtles were swimming by all the time and we got to see many of them snorkeling near the rocks on the right. I was surprised at the nice variety of fish to the right also. The grounds and pool/hot tub are well kept and are tended to every morning. We really enjoyed the nice grassy area with a foot wash station and steps leading to and from the beach.

I cannot think of one negative thing to say about the fish condo or Hale Mahina. We plan to return the next time our travels take us to Maui. Linda was very prompt responding to emails and made the booking process very easy. Thank you Linda and co owners for offering such a wonderful property.
