Lahaina 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 deck. We saw 21 turtles on the beach next door 4/16:) Fall asleep to the sounds of waves softly crashing on the beach, light scent of plumeria, and feel the ocean breezes coming through our new louvered windows. Visit our website at mauiturtlecondo to see *videos of the grounds and snorkeling with lots of turtles in front of our condo. This was done by a professional photographer from LA. He even added music and sent to me to use:)

Mahina Surf 204 is a peaceful, charming 2 bedroom/2 bath recently completely remodeled ocean front condo located just minutes from Lahaina, Ka'anapali, Kapalua, and beautiful ocean sand beaches. 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 a solar panel 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 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. Love our island views:)

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.

Mahalo, and we hope you will make Maui Turtle Condo a part of your dreams and memories.

About Connie and Joe Ravenel

Thank you for your interest in our Maui turtle paradise. We hope you decide to stay and make wonderful family and friend memories. Please read our reviews. Joe and I are both retired. I am a retired elementary teacher, so the condo has lots of Hawaiian books for adults and children, Disney movies, and sea life drawing books to enjoy after a long day of snorkeling with the turtles or adventures. We have 4 adult children, 3 grandchildren, and pets.

Connie and Joe Ravenel purchased this condo in 1973

Why Connie and Joe Ravenel chose Maui

Fantastic location, beautiful ocean views, incredible number of turtles that you can watch come into feed from our deck, 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

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 equipped kitchen, 2 bathrooms, beautiful travertine floors, comfortable furniture and 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. We also have beach towels, sand chairs, beach umbrella, snorkel gear, ice chests, and a large bucket filled with sand toys.

Mahina Surf 204 has been a part of our family for over 40 years. We have so many fond memories, and hope to make many more. We love our time in Maui, and think you will too.

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.

Stunning location, a peaceful paradise and perfect family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! Not sure where to start! Our family just took our first Maui vacation and had the pleasure of staying in the turtle condo for 10 days. We were thrilled to see many large sea turtles each day sunning on the rocks below the condo. The condo was perfect for our family of five, we really enjoyed the loft area for the kids. We loved sleeping with the windows open at night and listening to the waves. We also loved that the tv never came on during our entire trip, so nice to unplug, relax, and connect with the family. Connie and Joe have defiantly gone the extra mile providing ice chests, chairs, towels and everything needed for a great day at the beach. Our kids also really enjoyed the clean, heated pool out front. We loved the convenient location, so close to restaurants, shopping, Lahaina, Napili Beach, etc. We'd definitely recommend the Mahina Surf condo to anyone looking for an alternative to the big Maui hotels. So great to be able to do laundry just a few steps from the condo, everyone that we encountered, especially the staff was very welcoming and nice. Thanks so much Connie and Joe for sharing your special paradise! We look forward to returning in whale season :)

Owner's Response: "WOW!" Thank you for your kind words about our Maui turtle paradise, and for "definitely recommending" our condo to others:) Glad you enjoyed our location; close to beaches, restaurants, shopping, golf, and also found the condo and grounds a perfect place to relax. The pool is now a solar panel saline heated pool. We love to swim at night under the stars, listening to the ocean, and watching the palm trees sway. We look forward to your return. The turtles will be waiting. Thanks, Connie and Joe

It was like staying at a friend's home

  • 5 of 5

Our 2 nights were too few! Connie and Joe's second floor (of only 2 floors) condo is really a home- it has comfortable clean furniture and beds, a well equipped kitchen with any cooking items one might need and a beach closet with snorkels, boards, beach towels, cooler bags etc for a day at the beach. It has the feel of a home which has been loved and, as evidence, is exquisitely remodeled and updated. We enjoyed Connie and Joe's travel books and novels, movies and games and thoroughly relaxed in the home. At night, the sound of the ocean and breeze is a near constant and provided for wonderful sleep for 2 adults and 3 children in the private master bedriom and upstairs loft. The grounds are stunning and evoke a place of calm and visual beauty: there are no mega hotels or tall buildings visible from the home, just the ocean, greenery and the pool. Steps away are many sea turtles along the black rocks. We didn't swim or snorkel there but headed out a short way to Whalers Village and Kaanapali Beach and though we had fun, we were delighted to return to the serenity of the Turtle Condo grounds. It was a fabulous start to our travels. We enjoyed it more than any other place in east or west Maui. While it's true that Maui offers so much outdoors, having a true home for relaxation indoors and sleep is an important part of a vacation, especially with children.

Beautiful view but missed the AC!

  • 3 of 5

This condo has a wonderful view of the ocean and the turtles were great. However, I found the lack of AC uncomfortable at times and loud. We could hear the waves crash but also the loud sprinkler system (that goes off at 2:00 and 4:00 am) and anyone coming in late. It was very clean but found it a bit tight for the five of us. The owners were very easy to work with and responded quickly.

Owner's Response: "Wonderful ocean view and turtles great:) Glad you enjoyed our beautiful ocean view. Mahina Surf hired new gardeners in June, who are busy making the property lush, so using the sprinklers more. Two years ago we spent over $8,000 on new louvered windows and deck doors, plus $2,000 on 3 new ceiling fans, + 2 floor fans. We enjoy our location and the usual trade winds. Our condo is 850+ square feet with a king, queen, twin, queen sofa bed and floor futon, and a wonderful ocean view. Where else can you see so many sea turtles? Thank you, Connie and Joe

Amazing Condo

  • 5 of 5

This was the second time we have stayed at the Turtle Condo and for good reason. The location is great first of all but the condo itself is so nice, clean and well decorated. It's very comfortable and very peaceful. The view is amazing and being able to listen to the ocean during the night is calming. The snorkeling can't be beat and the pool is very nice and clean. We love watching the many turtles the peak their heads up from the water and that like to sun themselves right there on the beach each afternoon. We have stayed at this complex six times now and we prefer the Turtle Condo. You just can't go wrong staying there. Connie has thought of everything, she has a book with lists of things to do, restaurants, etc. Plus she has beach chairs, snorkel gear, coolers, etc. as well. Thank you Connie and Joe! We will be renting from you again.

Great place for a quiet getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were looking for a tranquil, quiet slice of paradise, and we found it here. A ridiculously beautiful oceanfront view from the lanai, sunning turtles on the rocks, scurrying geckos down the path, a sandy beach just a quick walk away, quick access to all of Maui's west side, it was just perfect. The condo itself was fresh, clean and comfortable, with loads of personality. Connie and Joe had stocked everything we needed to cook most of our meals, a swimming pool that was steps away, oceanfront grills, and best of all, a calm environment that allowed us to relax and just enjoy the surroundings.

Connie was always helpful and responsive, sent along everything we needed for our trip, and getting to the condo was a breeze.

Great trip. Next time we're in Maui we'll come back!

Our vacation at the Maui Turtle Condo was the best, It was the most relaxing vacation we have had. We saw so many turtles during our 8 days that I couldn't even begin to count them. We would set out every morning having coffee and on a couple of occasions we would see wales breeching. The view from the condo was just absolutely beautiful. Connie, The list of places to eat were wonderful, We had the lobster at Betty's and it was awesome. Thank you so very much and we plan to get in touch with you in the fall to rent again (two weeks this time).
