About the property

*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 :) 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 Maui Turtle 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 Lahaina

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.

Great views!

  • 5 of 5

The condo has everything you need for a holiday stay. The location is great, close to all the nice beaches in Lahaina. In the afternoon you can see turtles swimming from the lanai and if you take a walk through the rocks just outside the condo, you can see the turtles resting on the rocks.

Owner's Response: "Great views!" Glad you enjoyed your time at our Maui turtle paradise, saw turtles, (watch them swim in to feed all day from our lanai, and at low tide on the lava rocks= I have seen 1 to 21 relaxing on the rocks for hours), say our location is "great", and rated our paradise 5 stars. Please share our information with family, friends, at work, and come back soon! Thank you, Connie and Joe

This Turtle Condo was amazing! It had everything we needed and wanted! The condo was immaculately clean. The grounds are beautiful! You can't beat this view anywhere! We did not want to leave this place. Connie was awesome and communicated with us throughout the whole process starting months ahead of our trip. It is close to everything. And yes, we saw turtles on the rocks just steps away from the condo! Look no further! I highly recommend this place. We had 4 adults and 2 children and it was perfect! We do not have even one complaint! We will definitely be back!

Maui Turtle Condo is beautiful, right on the ocean!

  • 4 of 5

Maui Turtle condo is conveniently located just north of Lahaina & Kanaapali. You can see the ocean & neighboring island from the balcony.

We grilled fresh fish on the outdoor grill.

There were lots of sea turtles at the property's beach!

Highly recommended!
