My mother in law’s favorite part of our trip was walking into the condo for the first time. The property was great, location convenient to a lot of West Maui attractions, and the pool/hot tub and beach were great. I highly recommend it!

Wonderful stay and Perfect Christmas vacation!
Beautiful place - View is priceless!!! My family of five stayed here for Christmas vacation and loved everything about it. The location is very close to Lahaina (We loved the shopping on Front Street and had dinners at Lahaina Grill, Mala Ocean Tavern, Sale Pepe, Thai Chef. and did shopping at Whalers Village. We also enjoyed being close to Farmers Market and The Fish Market where we where able to buy fresh produce and fresh fish (Poké). The condo was very comfortable for all, beautifully decorated and had absolutely “every”amenity you could need and then some; binoculars for whale watching, bluetooth speaker, boogie boards, umbrella, cooler and ice packs for day trips, and a well stocked freezer of ice. Unbelievable!!! My son asked if we would have a Christmas tree in our condo for Christmas. I thought that’s too much to ask but I asked and once again Beth delivered without hesitation. (thanks to Rose a Christmas tree was present upon arrival) We brought some of our own decorations and we had our very own decorated tree. Amazing!!!! The location of the condo on the ocean with the waves crashing while you sleep was amazing. The breeze that blows through condo from front to back was enough to keep it cool...and all rooms have fans as well. We enjoyed the lanai views and private beach is breath taking!! The turtle that would come to visit and sleep on the beach, views of double rainbows, whale watching and postcard sunsets. If you wanted to venture outside of this paradise, to do short sightseeing visits like Dragons Teeth, Olivine Pools, Nakalele Blowhole (Heart Shaped Rock) and the Kapalua Golf Course for a round of golf or take a ride to Honolua Bay for more snorkeling. We checked out some of the larger beaches (Big Beach, Kaanapali beach) and all three of my kids (14,19 and 21) adamantly preferred the 'private' little beach and pool at Hale Mahina-great for swimming, snorkeling, boogie boards, watching the sea turtles and sunbathing. The grounds are immaculatley kept as crews are out every morning assuring perfection...down to a fallen leaf! (Awesome work Larry!) Beth was awesome was very quick to get back to me on any questions that we had. All of booking details with Beth went smoothly and she always answered my concerns in a very timely manner. It is situated out of major tourist areas but close enough to all if you want it. Perfect place with all the charm!

Excellent! 5 STAR Condo
Just bring your clothes because you won't need to bring anything else. The owners have thought of everything I mean everything. The view, beach, pool, hot tub, sunsets and lets not forget the turtles were all you can ask for. Absolutely wonderful place to stay.

25th Anniversary Trip!
Have stayed at many VRBO’s. This unit is accurately advertised and VERY well equipped. Was perfect for us & our 3 children. Beautiful, quiet beach away from chaos of big hotels but close enough to enjoy all the Lahaina area destinations & tour companies picked us up on site for our further outings to Haleakalā & Road to Hana. We could walk to fish market & farmers market. Loved having the pool & ocean so close to the unit too. Easy to go back & forth. Beth is quick to respond & easy to work with. Thanks for sharing your piece of paradise. We hope to come back some day.

What an amazing week we had at your amazing condo! Your place is beautiful, comfortable, and the views! We even had sea turtles swim right by us in the ocean…3 times!
We had a wonderful stay on Maui – sunrise at Haleakala, zip lining, Whalers Village, Baby Beach, Big Beach, Iao Valley…so many great memories. But several days we just spent at the beach at the condo in the beautiful water, and it is where we ended each day watching the sunset!
The SC Family - June 2019
What a beautiful spot, inside and out! Thank you for all the little touches to make sure we had everything we needed. We loved the breeze and fans that kept the unit perfect. The view – to die for!
We loved the fresh local fruits from the nearby Farmers Market.
Saw turtles on our first night.
One evening we saw about 30 Geckos around the pool!

Where to begin. The condo was emaculate. I’m picky & it was spotless, as if housekeeping dumped every cupboard, every drawer & neatly restocked it for the next guest. The freezer was even full of fresh ice. As far as accommodations - they have thought of everything. Cooler for the beach? Check! Boogie board? Check! Binoculars for whale watching? Check! Bluetooth speaker? Check! The condo itself is beautifully placed- literally steps from the beach. And decorated very tastefully. The view from the lanai is like a postcard - night & day. Sea Turtles literally sleep on the beach nearly every evening. The condo is located within walking distance to excellent local food. Very inexpensive & incredibly fresh & delicious. Just a short drive into Lahaina if you want a little more action. But honestly, you won’t want to go very far - everything you need is right there! You absolutely will not be disappointed with your stay here👍👍

Great location, quiet, on secluded beach, clean, all the amenities. Beth, owner, very friendly and helpful. Looking forward to our next stay!

This condo was one of the best we have been in. Just unpack and you are ready to enjoy all the amenities. The view is spectacular 24/7. The breeze keeps the condo pleasantly cool. The sounds of the ocean lull you to sleep. It was stocked with everything you would need for the stay, boogie boards, snorkels, noodles, all the way down to the ice chests to take along for those rides out to Hana or Haleakala. There are walking paths right out the door. The binder was a great help with local places to hike, eat, or snorkel. The beds were comfortable and the bathrooms well stocked with paper products. All in all, it was very comfortable and I would totally recommend this condo to anyone going to Maui.

I can't say enough good things about Beth and the Hale Mahina. What a great property and fantastic location. The condo has everything you could possibly need and Beth is extremely quick to respond with any questions. The views and the private beach are hands down the best we have ever had in Maui. We would definitely stay here again. Thank you Beth!
Carol S. - August 2018
We had a wonderful time in this condo. The location was great with the view over the beach and a beautiful sunset every day. The condo was fully stocked for all our activities and the eating in we did while we were there. Looking forward to our next trip back.

We had an amazing time in Maui. The condo is beautiful, beds are very comfortable, stocked with all the essentials and located right on the beach with outstanding views; we felt at home, not like we were staying in a hotel. We enjoyed watching the resident sea turtle who would warm himself on the beach every other day, stay overnight and return to the water the next day. There were always sea turtles swimming just feet off the beach every day & one day had a stingray, which was very cool. The entire property is lovely, beautifully manicured and a nice sandy beach to hang out on. You get fantastic sunsets from the condos patio or sitting in lawn chairs with a cocktail on the grass overlooking the beach. The condo is located so close small shops & food; we walked nearly every day to the farmers market, fish market or ABC store & rented snorkeling equipment at Boss Frogs which is right next to the farmers market. The fish market has outstanding tacos and also fresh sea food to cook yourself. The owners Beth & John could not be more fantastic; very responsive & so helpful. We plan to visit again some day & will definitely be staying in Beth & John's condo!

Beth and John’s condo is in such a premium location. Beautiful views, all accommodations needed, swimmable beach just down some stairs (or elevator!). The condo was clean and had everything we could have wanted. Thank you so much for sharing your condo with us!
Greg and Nicole - March 2018
We loved our time at the condo. The view is priceless! Loved paddleboarding, ziplining, surfing, luau, and relaxing at the beach. Loved seeing the whales, so many sea turtles, and even a monk seal! Thank you for opening your home to our family. We will be back! Mahalo.

What a way to spend our first Christmas away from home. Beth made it very easy for us and was the perfect virtual host. She responded quickly when we had a question, and the condo advertised is exactly what you get if not better. The beachfront view is amazing. We've stayed and the Westin Villas and the Honua Kai up the road and had condos with ocean front views that don't even come close to the views you start to enjoy at A405 as soon as you walk through the door. The condo was clean, updated, comfortable, and a great layout. Perfect for my wife and I and two teens. The kitchen was well equipped and the beds were very comfortable. The beach was perfect and the so many turtles!!! There were 2-3 turtles on the beach resting every day. Amazing. And finally saw our first whale on Christmas day. And many more after that. Walking and access to amenities and restaurants was ideal. We went to the Farmers Market just about every day, walked up to the fish market for amazing fish tacos, and it was an easy walk to the Kaanapali beach boardwalk. The beach lounging area was also perfect. Never felt crowded and always had plenty of space to relax, throw the football, and enjoy the sun and views. I'm seriously a very picky traveler and high maintenance when it comes to my accommodations. We were not disappointed. We would highly recommend working with Beth. She was truly amazing and her pictures do not deceive. What you see is what you get. We can't wait for our next visit.
