Lahaina 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. 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! The entire property, including the units and grounds, is designated as non-smoking throughout.

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 West side 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 Hawaiian 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 Maui

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!

Loved it!!!

  • 4 of 5

This was our first time staying in a condo on the island and we loved it!! The location was great and the condo was perfect for the two of us! We were very pleased with the accommodations and all of the things we were able to use in the condo. The only thing we had a hard time with were the ghost ants! They seemed to be everywhere! We learned the first day not to leave any sort of food out on the counter or even in the microwave. We asked the front desk about it and she explained that they were very hard to keep out of the condo and offered to come have it sprayed. We didn't want to have to worry about it so we declined and just dealt with it for a few days. Other than that, we truly loved the property! Morning walks out to watch the turtles and afternoon swims in the very well kept pool were amazing! The book of suggestions was another great perk! We had breakfast at The Gazebo and enjoyed the beaches! Thank you for sharing your home with us! We will definitely stay here again if the opportunity arises!

Love this condo! Always superb!

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure to stay in this unit several times and must say the owners are doing a wonderful job keeping this condo beautiful and immaculate. Just recently the entire kitchen and bathroom were remodeled and updated! Looks amazing!! The condo has everything, a great equipped kitchen, snorkel gear, lounge chairs and umbrellas for the beach. Even a movie collection that entertains later at night. It is a corner unit and the trade winds keep this place cool, even throughout the hot summer months. If you love to BBQ, you are in for a treat. So fun to BBQ right at the ocean, while watching a breathtaking sunset. Plenty of turtles and so much more to explore. We love the location, which is close to beautiful beaches, shopping and restaurants. Thank you for sharing your beautiful place ..... A "home away from home". Mahalo and we will be back again!

Beautiful property but wrong time of year too hot

  • 4 of 5

The owners were fantastic. Property was great. I did not read well enough to find that there was no AC. We arrived late, Way north of 85 degrees in the condo. Bearable. Then the heat wave came and two days with dim to no trade winds. Due to a storm in the pacific. 84 degrees at 4am with no wind. Which they rely on. It would have been a perfect trip in January. Should have gone down and purchased a box fan to move air through the unit. Not just around the apt.

This was an unusual weather event. Serious hot and very little to no wind at night. I would return at the right time of the year.

Truly a gem! Lives up to it's expectation.

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time here! Everything was great. The owners were easy to reach and incredibly helpful when we had a question. Also the people on site were very helpful and friendly. The condo was clean and really had everything we could possibly need. The kids (9 and 10) slept on the pullout and were comfortable. They had a blast in the pool, which we could perfectly supervise from the lanai and with all the turtles while playing on the rocks. Location on the island was perfect for us.

Best Location In Maui and SO many beautiful Turtles

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4 nights here at Kris & Ricks Condo number 117 and absolutely loved it. The condo is located in Mahina Surf which is a small complex of about 60 condos each and everyone has a beautiful ocean and pool view.This is definately the best location in Maui, the location of the condo is fabulous, right on the water and best of all sooooo many sea turtles its crazt. My husband & I went out each morning while the seas were calmest and snorkelled with these little fells right out the front.There are hundreds of condos and units for rent in this area but most of them are in huge complexes but Mahina Surf is small and personal and quiet, the grounds are immaculate, the pool crystal clear with BBQs overlooking the ocean & it has laundry facilities

Our unit was really nice with everything you could need. its 1 bedroom and there is a queen sofa bed in the lounge room, its ground floor ( there are only 2 levels at Mahina Surf) has a patio with table and chairs.where we sat each night enjoying the sunset. We are a family of 4 and had plent of room.Its about a 5 minute drive to the nearest grocery store and 10 minute drive into Lahaina Harbour and all the cute shops on Front street and in the opposite direction heading north are great snorkelling locations like Honalua Bay. Not the best time of the year for surfing as we went in July but my son found waves at the Harbour in Lahaina at Break wall and a little beach near Baby Beach.and great snorkelling at a beach nicknamed Airport, not sure of its really name but it comes up if you google airport beach Lahaina.

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.
