I'm writing this from right outside of The Shack. This place is everything the website said it is and more. It is perfect -- just what we were looking for. The condo is decorated so nicely -- and the bed rivals our one at home. We have been here two nights and have slept so well. The sound of the waves is very soothing. This location is ideal. The water is right outside the door. There is a little beach in front as well. Really, everything you need is right here. We walked down to the farmer's market yesterday morning -- a very short walk -- and got the best papayas and mangos, along with a lot of other things (don't miss the guacamole!). This really is the choice unit of this complex, being on the end. We can sit on our lanai and not see anyone or any buildings -- just the ocean and the beautiful views. The sun sets directly out front of the unit -- right between the islands of Molokai and Lanai. If this unit is available for when you want to come, you'd better book it -- you will be really glad you did. It's heavenly here!

Clean and comfortable. Mainlanders should know that there is no air conditioning, but great ocean breezes. Neighbors were friendly and helpful. Loved seeing the sea turtles come up on the beach out front!

Greetings We have been using VRBO for well over 10 years and Lindsay's Surf Shack was one of our better experiences. I would highly recommend the Surf Shack to others. The condo exceeded our expectations and we pleasantly were pleased by the small things...cooking spices, olive oil, plush towels and soft bed sheets, the BBQ grill within feet of the condo, the quietness of the corner unit, etc. We especially appreciated Lindsay scheduling the sea turtle to come and lay on the beach right where we were staying :-)

Absolutely everything as described. My wife and I have been using VRBO for a decade now, and this proved to be our favorite place to date. Lindsay was particularly gracious to us both: Sorry we did not have a chance to meet her. Farmers market is a safe and easy 5 minute walk...add another 100 yards for $7.99 fresh fish tacos, 50 more feet to fresh fish for the grill. Having a TIMES store right at the turnoff from Hwy 30 meant everything you could want was a quick stop on the way home. I cannot imagine any reason not to recommend a stay at the shack.

When is my next vacation and where will I go?
When is my next vacation and where will I go?
Probably Maui and not soon enough. We loved this rental property and hope to return soon. It is even better than the pictures describe. The views are fantastic as this "shack' is oceanfront and faces Molokai and Lanai. Both the sunrise and sunset are incredible from the lanai! The nearly private beach just steps away kept us busy snorkeling and swimming with the turtles and fish and playing in the waves. Everything you need is within walking distance so you could go days without getting in your car. This space has great energy and for a great price. The only negative feeling you may experience is envy of the owners who get to call this home!

Owner response: Thanks Tracey for the great reveiw. Most of my guests are returning surf shack fans so it nice to hear from new guests like you, and since you were the first ones to stay in the "new" shack, it's even better

We had a wonderful stay at the Surf Shack! It was clean, well maintained and as advertised. If we find ourselves in Maui again we will choose the Surf Shack as our "home" while on the island. I would suggest if you are arriving at night to bring a small flashlight, otherwise you will not be able to see the combination lock that gives you access to the keys to the condo. We have already recommended this to our friends as a great place to stay.

Owner response: Thanks guys for the kind words. I know the surf shack is special but it is nice to hear other people think so too.
The surf shack totally ROCKS! The location for our two week anniversary trip was absolutely perfect! The view from the lanai is breathtaking and the shack is hardly that at all. Everything was provided and in excellent shape. Very clean, updated, and well presented. The residents of the condo were very nice to recommend places of interest. The fish market down the street was fabulous. We used the grill nearly everyday and would absolutely recommend the surf shack. The owners are more than accomodating! We cannot wait to come back for another visit. Please contact me for questions. Definitely worth every penny and then some!

Alwes Family - Chico,California Searching the internet for the perfect vacation spot can potentially be disappointing but not this time! Wow! What a wonderful condo! We absolutely loved the surf shack and hope to return each year. Thank you so much to Dan & Lindsay for sharing their island getaway paradise with us. We enjoyed Thanksgiving 2006 & my son Camerons 10th birthday at the surf shack and had a fabulous time. It was very clean & comfortable with all of the ammenities we could want. We used the beach towels, boogie board & chairs that were provided. We packed the little cooler with a picnic each day and set out for the beach. It was great to come back at sunset & enjoy the gorgeous view while we cooked our fresh fish on the bar-b-que, enjoyed a mai tai & best of all, ran a load of laundry. The king size bed was awesome and so comfortable! Our ten year old did great on the futon and loved to play the hawaiian music cd's provided. He turned the dining table in to puzzle central & completed the 700 piece ocean scene puzzle. We love how you have the condo decorated. It was fun, colorful, comfy & cozy with an island feel. The bath towels were thick and plush, everything was very clean and I would return for that reason alone but there was so many other great things too! Like, how about opening up both sliding doors, feeling the tradewinds, hearing the waves crashing while taking in the awesome views of Lanai & Molakai right there. Can't wait to come back! It doesn't get any better than this!

What a wonderful two weeks we spent at the "surf shack"! After swimming, hiking, snorkeling our way around the island, there was nothing quite like returning home to a comfortable place that had everything that we needed. There was even a day or two that we didn't leave and just soaked up the beauty right outside our door. We loved it, hated to leave, and would return soon, but alas....no more vacation!

Year Purchased: 2000
About the owner: I have lived in California my whole life but Maui was always a special place for me and my husband. We traveled to Maui for vacation almost every year of our marriage (32 years) and in 2000 we finally decided to buy a condo of our own. That is how we ended up with our beloved surf shack. For the first 6 years we kept it for ourselves ( let friends and family use it). It was my husband Daniel's favorite place in the world. Sadly, he passed away in January 2008. One of his surfboards decorates a wall in the shack. If you see a rainbow while you are there, it is Daniel wishing you a fond aloha.
Why the Owner Chose Honokowai:
When I was 19 I spent a year in Lahaina. Ever since, west Maui has been special in my heart. My husband was a surfer and we spent our honeymmon on Maui. In 2000 when we bought the shack there were very few oceanfront 1 bedroom condos in West Maui. The surf shack was 1 of 5 for sale in the area. We were lucky to get it and the rest is history
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The surf shack is located in a small, quiet complex. It is at the very end so it is very private. I love to sit on the lanai in the early morning, drinking coffee and watch the resident turtles out in front. There is a great farmers market down the street. There are many regular guests that visit the Lokelani year after year. It makes for nice pupu parties
