Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5)

Beautiful decorated condo, in the perfect setting. It is a tree house feel, private yet close to everything, you won't be sorry!

Thank you for considering Hale Mala Hina - The House of Garden Mist. The recent remodel was inspired by our love for Japanese design and accented with Hawaiian spirit. In a word, it’s TRANQUIL and we hope the photos give a worthy sense for its true comfort. It's an ideal place for a small family or 1-2 couples.

We know you’re searching high and low to find the perfect place for your Hawaiian vacation. We think the West side of Maui is definitely the right place to look.

There are many beach parks to snorkel, picnic, or barbecue and it’s refreshingly cooler at night than other parts of the island. Restaurants of varying cuisine dot the West side, with many on the Northern end tucked away in tropical foliage, to offer the slower pace that people look for in Hawaii. Honolua and Napili Bays are absolutely stunning and are a hop, skip and a jump from our place. No need to pay for a snorkeling trip - just jump right in.

If you’re like us, we believe EATING, SLEEPING, and RELAXING are very, very important and that a great condo makes the vacation all the more memorable.

EATING – For us, one of life’s simple pleasures is to sip wine and eat our meal on the lanai – which is why we furnished it with a couch on one side and a dining table on the other. The warm, inviting lighting allows for enjoyment well past the famous sunsets, which can be viewed while enjoying your dinner on the lanai.

From the stemware to the cookware, our kitchen provides all the implements a cook would need to prepare a complete family meal. The open design, beautiful granite, and bamboo cabinetry help create a soothing and pleasurable place to entertain and prepare a gourmet dinner.

SLEEPING – Brand new pillow top mattresses with designer linens aim for the ultimate sleeping luxury. The master bedroom, with its king size bed, is smartly partitioned with beautiful Japanese shoji screens, which open up the room by day and seclude it by night.

The second bedroom, which is affectionately called the persimmon room, has a queen bed and a corner desk, which offers a convenient nook for working on a laptop. There’s also a sleeping loft with a plush twin mattress – a cozy place for nighttime reading before falling asleep.

RELAXING – After a day of enjoying the island’s activities, relax in front of the 46' High Definition Flatscreen TV with Blu Ray and Surround Sound. There is also an iPod docking station as well as high-speed wireless Internet connection. All you’ll need is a bowl of popcorn before sinking into the couch for the night.

While a full list of amenities is provided below, there are a few we’d like to highlight:

• Free Parking

• Air Conditioning - (2) Air Conditioners

• Community Pool, Tennis Courts, and BBQ Grill

• Dishwasher, Washer and Dryer (In Unit)

• Beach Chairs, Mats, and Towels

• Picnic Coolers and Ice Packs

• High Definition Flat Screen TV (46”), Surround Sound, WiFi

• Blu Ray Player; Access to Library of Discs (40-50 Titles)

• Local Art

• World Renowned Photography

We think this luxurious condo is a great, tranquil place to stay at an incredibly affordable price. We spent a year remodeling it to a style that we think reflects our personality and taste. We hope to live here one day and so we wanted a place that would feel like our very own Hawaiian home. We hope you will think so too.

About Jill M /Marzo-Clark

Aloha! We’ve been coming to Maui for a number of years now - usually to surf - and got married (or as they say “Maui-ed”) here in 2009. It really is a special place. If you're a regular - welcome back! If you're new to Hawaii, we hope you have the kind of magical stay that will keep you coming back for years to come. Rachel & Tony

Why Jill M /Marzo-Clark chose Honokowai

We picked our community (Pohailani) because it is largely residential, right by the water, and has lush gardens with several mango trees. It is a community comprised of oceanfront studios and a number of two-unit, two-bedroom, garden style buildings set beneath shady tropical trees.

                                                                I would rate it a letter grade C. The rental fee is priced right for the unit.

                                                                It was clean!/Well stocked!

                                                                The TV system was something that needs to be addressed hard to figure out. Fan control remotes didn t work! Really needs an air conditioner in the kitchen living room area. Location is out of the way of beaches and attractions. Owner was responsive to our needs. Overall probably would not rent again!

                                                                Owner's Response:

                                                                Aloha Charles,

                                                                Thanks for your review, I am happy you enjoyed your stay. I am also sorry you had trouble with the high-tech TV remote we have gotten so many folks asking where to get one, it is really state of the Art. I also understand if your not used to something it can be hard. As for the AC, most people find 2 air conditioners MORE than enough, when we stay it is extremely cool, we also had a cool front while you were visiting? For the fan controls they may have needed batteries which are in the unit and I can't help if I don't know, I would have been more than happy to come over again if you needed any assistance.

                                                                All in all I am glad you had a great time~

                                                                It means so much that my guests enjoy there stay....

                                                                Great service and beautiful place.

                                                                Lots of room for 4 of us to spread out and not far from great beaches and downtown Lahaina,

                                                                The unit was truly beautiful. Our entire stay was fantastic everything was exactly as described.

                                                                Bernadette C.

                                                                Your search is over for the perfect condo in Maui! When they say you won’t be sorry, you won’t! When they say it’s tranquil, it is! We hated to leave “our home” in Kahana. First and foremost, their attention to detail and personal touch was top notch. From the communication with them, beginning with inquiries on booking, to the welcome email the morning of our check in date, to a nice cold Brita filled water jug in fridge and box of chocolates (which was sooooo appreciated after a long day of travel, arriving hot, dehydrated and hungry), to fixing immediately a minor glitch with the TV remote, to the final aloha and mahalo email on our departure day.....what an awesome experience!!! I’d like to personally thank Jill, Melanie (asst to Jill) and Tony. Because we booked so far in advance, I think I also communicated with Rachel. So a thank you to you also. Now, onto my rating of the condo. We were 3 adults and had more than enough room. Our favourite place to hang out was the lanai. We only ate out at restaurants twice, so the kitchen got used a lot. The appliances are high end. The kitchen is well equipped. The dishwasher was so quiet I kept checking to make sure it was on. The washer and dryer did an excellent job. The three most important items on our priority list are, is it clean? It was super clean! A shout out to the cleaners! Is it quiet? Super quiet. Is the location good? We felt the location was super. I read an earlier review that stated the bed was too soft. If you’re used to an exceptionally super hard, firm mattress, then yes, it would be considered soft. It’s hard to make everyone happy. I think the owners made a great choice, considering they sleep on it as well, in addition, trying to make a choice the majority of guests would be happy with. Is it a deal breaker? Not at all. So, in closing, VRBO let’s you rate based on 5 stars. We feel the Tree House delivered double what it promised, hence our 10 Star rating. Aloha and Mahalo. For those of you who book and stay here, have a fantastic time!

                                                                Owner's Response:

                                                                Wow what a wonderful review! You guys were the best! I do hope you come back again. We can't thank you enough for your KIND words. WE love that you enjoyed your time here in Maui at our condo. It means Oh so much to us that your vacation rental is all that it can be and more.

                                                                Please hurry back you are now a big part of our OHANA...FAMILY



                                                                Love this place!!!

                                                                Nicole H.

                                                                This the second time we have stayed in this condo and it looks as good now as it did 5yrs ago!! It has been well taken care of which is so nice to see. Our family of 5, my husband, myself,our 8yr old and my in laws, find that this place suits all our needs. The lanai is large and where we spend most of our time when we are home. Nothing like drinking that morning coffee on the outdoor sofa listening to the birds!! So nice!! The kitchen has everything you would need to eat in if you desire and the bbq is close by. We loved the beds, the sheets and the built in dressers/closets so you can unpack and live like a local :) At night we would chose from one of many movies provided to wind down before bed. The grounds are well kept & the area quiet. There is a local beach a couple of blocks away where you can watch turtles playing in the waves. The condo is close to some great restaurants( Miso Phat for sushi) that are actually listed in a binder at the condo. They have really made an effort to think of everything you might need! We are already planning our next trip back!

                                                                HI Nicole and Ohana,

                                                                Thanks so much for your amazing review! WE are so happy you came back and that you enjoyed the condo so much!

                                                                It means oh so much to us..... We have recently gotten new appliances and new bamboo flooring. It is so nice you noticed.

                                                                Hurry back we love having you!


                                                                A great little getaway condo that feels cozy and has a wonderful island feel to it.

                                                                John A.

                                                                The layout and and amenities are great! The only negatives were that the beds are a bit soft and the a/c unit next to the bed is rather loud. All in all, it was a very nice stay!

                                                                Owner's Response:

                                                                Aloha John,

                                                                Thanks for your review we are so happy you liked the condo, It is really hard to pick the right mattress, so many people LOVE the mattress and ask where we bought it, I apologize if you felt it was soft. It is a med/firm new mattress. AS for the AC I wish you would have let me know I would get this taken care of right away. I will be at the unit today to make sure it is running efficient an quiet.

                                                                Again we truly appreciate your review we strive to make the unit as comfortable an amazing as possible for your vacation.

                                                                Hurry back

                                                                Pohailani (the name of the complex) is in walking distance to some nice restaurants and small shopping centers. Among the list, are Hawaiian Village Coffee, Dollies Pub and Grill, Maui Brewing Company, The Beach House and a Whaler's General Store. Pohailani is less than a two mile walk to a farmer's market, which carries all sorts of local produce and goods. There is also a larger grocery store within 3 miles, called Times market for all your in-house dinner needs. Almost everything you need is within walking distance of this beautiful area in Kahana, and what is not, is easily accessible by bus. The nearest bus stop is just outside the complex! We recommend renting a car to best explore Maui. This unit is newly remodeled and truly "one of a kind" please read the reviews! it is as if you are in a tree house, very private and VERY well taken care of. If you have any more questions, please don't hesitate to call or email. I pride myself on the comfort of my guests!
