Kahana condo description

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. Our property was recently designated as non-smoking throughout.

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!

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 Westside 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 Hawiaiian 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 full tub and 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!

              Location

              Car: Recommended

              BEACHES: Maui has so much to offer and of course it's beaches are some of the best! Great beaches near our property are 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.

              Year Purchased: 2011

              About: 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!

              Why Kahana:
              We have been coming back to Maui off and on for the past 24 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!

              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
              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!
