About the property

Amazing Beachfront Condo 30 Feet From Water

Welcome to 'The Bungalow' aka 'Home of the Honu' (The Hawaiian green sea turtle) and Gateway to the Whales (during season).

Our breathtaking vacation home is located directly on the beach in Honokowai about 30 feet from the water. The beach itself is so private that Hawaiian sea turtles come up to sleep on the sand!

Enjoy direct ocean front views not only from the large spacious lanai but also from the living room, kitchen, and dining area.

This fully re-modeled 2nd floor, 1 bedroom (King Size Bed), 1 full bath (with Full Tub), vacation home is truly a 5 star gem. The complete upgrade and remodel includes granite counter tops (bathroom included), mosaic tiles (and murals) in the tub and shower, a full kitchen (with new appliances including dishwasher), plus a washer and dryer for laundry.

In addition, the walls are adorned with local designer art stylishly placed throughout the entire home. The fully separated bedroom has Shoji Japanese doors and is situated at the end of a long extended hallway.

At the end of that hallway is a step down living room which has a separate queen size sofa sleeper, matching recliner, and full dining area; all facing the water and the spacious direct ocean front lanai (perfect for meals for up to 4 people). Because of the amazing lay out of the Condo, up to 2 couples can actually share this spacious beachfront retreat without ever getting in each other's way.

The Hale Mahina Beach Resort itself is also consistently rated as one of the top 10 resort destination complexes in the Lahaina area by numerous travel directories. The Hale Mahina Resort is also complete with an Ocean Front Pool and Jacuzzi, BBQ , and Picnic Area. Besides having an exclusive beach, the Hale Mahina also has a separate perfectly manicured grassy area where you can relax and lounge (chairs provided) to picnic and take in the amazing flora that is present all around (just in case you don't want to get your feet 'sandy').

Should you choose to leave your private beach retreat and venture out from the Hale Mahina Resort, you will find just how centrally located the Hale Mahina is to almost everything you would want or need while on Maui. Everything from high end shopping, to a local farmer's market, plus some of the best 'local' food and 5 star restaurants on the island of Maui are all just minutes away. Not to mention some of West Maui's finest other beaches and golf resorts as well.

The condo itself is truly perfect in every way, upgraded in every way with each detail meticulously fashioned to fit your every need with high speed Wi-FI and Cable too. HI Reg #W67247074-01

About Marco Ahtirski AND Eugene Ahtirski AND Linda Russell

We have been traveling to Hawaii since 1976. Having explored all the startlingly impressive and truly amazing splendors of all the Hawaiian Islands, we somehow always seem to have found ourselves going back to Maui more than any of other beautiful islands. Perhaps it was all the beaches, the different micro-climates, the ability to go from the top of a volcano10,000 feet above sea level back to the warm ocean water in one day, or just the simple laid back and warm aloha spirit...

Marco Ahtirski AND Eugene Ahtirski AND Linda Russell purchased this condo in 2014

Why Marco Ahtirski AND Eugene Ahtirski AND Linda Russell chose Maui

Each island is unique and each part of each island has it's own unique charm. Honokowai is especially phenomenal as you can see both the islands of Lanai and Molokai at the same time and whales and turtles seem to agree! Those islands also create a sheltered channel in the waters that run along the shoreline in Honokowai where the Hale Mahina is located. The grounds of the Hale Mahina are beautifully maintained and manicured daily with hibiscus blooming everywhere. When you then combine that with the fact that your beach is essentially so private that even the Hawaiian Honu call it their home and choose to lounge on the grounds; all one can say is that it is a magical place!

What makes this condo unique

Sitting on the lanai, feeling the gentle breeze of the trade winds, and watching turtles and whales (during season) frolic right in front of you is something that words really cannot describe, except perhaps paradise?

Lovely condo on the beach

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 3-day stay in this condo. The view from the lanai was lovely and the pool and beach area was peaceful and easily accessible. We would definitely recommend it.

Would return again in a heartbeat

  • 4 of 5

We are a family of three and loved our week at Hale Mahina. The condo had a great view of the pool, beach, and ocean but was not noisy despite this location. Being location on "L" Road, the morning traffic was louder than expected, but was nothing to dissuade us from wanting to return to this site in Maui. Lots of families of varying age the week we were there (April 7-14), a more sociable bunch by day, and a great time in the pool and on the beach. The proximity to grocery stores was excellent and there were plenty of restaurant options if you prefer that to cooking. Great BBQ options on site, other guests always willing to share food staples and charcoal (almost everyone buys too much of everything), and the building manager runs a tight ship keeping the place in good standing with owners and guests. Would highly recommend this location for the price, the views, the comfort, the people, and the proximity to shops, restaurants and grocery stores (a lot of walking is possible and should be done when coming from a winter!). Enjoy!!

THE MOMENT WE ARRIVED AT THE CONDO WE WERE IN LOVE WITH IT. THE OUTSIDE GROUNDS OF THE CONDO WERE SO PLEASING TO THE EYE AND LOOKED VERY RELAXING AND SERENE. THE CONDO HAD AN ELEVATOR FOR EASY ACCESS TO THE TOP FLOOR CONDOS. AS SOON AS WE ENTERED WE WERE IN HEAVEN. THE INSIDE OF THE CONDO WAS PERFECT AND WAS EXACTLY WHAT THE PICTURES SHOWED. PARADISE!!! EVERYTHING ABOUT THE CONDO WAS PERFECT. IT WAS SUPER CLEAN. IT WAS WELL STOCKED WITH ANYTHING YOU SHOULD NEED. EVERYTHING INSIDE THE CONDO WAS IN GREAT SHAPE AND NICE. THE FURNITURE WAS VERY COMFORTABLE. THE BED WAS SUPER COMFORTABLE AND WE SLEPT WELL. THE CONDO WAS VERY QUIET DURING THE DAY AND NIGHT. IT WAS SO NICE TO BE ABLE TO LEAVE THE WINDOWS AND SLIDER OPEN ALL DAY AND ALL NIGHT AND BE ABLE TO HEAR THE WAVES OF THE OCEAN AND SMELL IT ALSO. WE ARE EARLY RISERS AND WE WERE ALWAYS ON THE LANAI DRINKING COFFEE WAITING FOR THE SUN TO COME UP. THE LOCATION OF THE CONDO IS GREAT. WE COULD EASILY ACCESS ANYTHING WE WANTED TO DO OR SEE. IT WAS AWESOME TO SEE THE TURTLES ON THE BEACH EVERYDAY AND SEE THE WHALES IN THE WATER. THE BEACH IS VERY NICE AND PRIVATE. WE REALLY LIKED THE IDEA THAT YOU HAD TO HAVE A KEY TO ACCESS THE GROUNDS . ALL IN ALL THIS IS THE PERFECT CONDO. WE WILL ALWAYS RENT THIS CONDO WHEN WE VISIT MAUI. THANK YOU EUGENE FOR MAKING IT SIMPLE AND HASSLE FREE TO RENT YOUR CONDO. WE WERE VERY VERY PLEASED. WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS CONDO.

Turtles and Whales

  • 5 of 5

The moment we walked in we saw turtles and whales, it was amazing! Everything lived up to our expectations and beyond! The kitchen is top notch, we loved all the choices of furniture on the lanai, the sofa bed was perfect for listening to waves all night! We truly can't wait to come back!

Beautiful!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Oh my word!! What a beautiful place! The condo was clean and beautifully decorated. You can not beat the location! A beautiful white sand beach only feet from the lanai(patio). Linda and Eugene were awesome! They helped us with any questions we had. The perfect hostess. The neighbors are friendly and helpful with tips around the area. The only downside is the traffic noise. In the morning you will hear the traffic go by but the evening isn't as bad.

Thank you again Linda and Eugene! When we come back, we will look you up again.

Perfect View & Location!!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures somehow do not do justice to how unbelievable the view is from the lanai. The ocean is so close that the sound of the ocean is all you hear. The sunsets were spectacular and since it was whale season we could easily watch them breaching. Turtles were often out on the sand in the mornings. The apartment is clean and comfortable, though we spent most time out on the lanai when we were home. Location is great- we really liked that end of the island too. The owners have an on-island person to help with any questions and was very helpful. Our trip couldn't have worked out better. highly recommended!
