About the Property

Amazing Beachfront Condo 30 Feet From Water

Welcome to 'The Bungalow' aka 'Home of the Honu' (The Hawaiian green sea turtle) and Gateway to the Whales (during season).

Our breathtaking vacation home is located directly on the beach in Honokowai about 30 feet from the water. The beach itself is so private that Hawaiian sea turtles come up to sleep on the sand!

Enjoy direct ocean front views not only from the large spacious lanai but also from the living room, kitchen, and dining area.

This fully re-modeled 2nd floor, 1 bedroom (King Size Bed), 1 full bath (with Full Tub), vacation home is truly a 5 star gem. The complete upgrade and remodel includes granite counter tops (bathroom included), mosaic tiles (and murals) in the tub and shower, a full kitchen (with new appliances including dishwasher), plus a washer and dryer for laundry.

In addition, the walls are adorned with local designer art stylishly placed throughout the entire home. The fully separated bedroom has Shoji Japanese doors and is situated at the end of a long extended hallway.

At the end of that hallway is a step down living room which has a separate queen size sofa sleeper, matching recliner, and full dining area; all facing the water and the spacious direct ocean front lanai (perfect for meals for up to 4 people). Because of the amazing lay out of the Condo, up to 2 couples can actually share this spacious beachfront retreat without ever getting in each other's way.

The Hale Mahina Beach Resort itself is also consistently rated as one of the top 10 resort destination complexes in the Lahaina area by numerous travel directories. The Hale Mahina Resort is also complete with an Ocean Front Pool and Jacuzzi, BBQ , and Picnic Area. Besides having an exclusive beach, the Hale Mahina also has a separate perfectly manicured grassy area where you can relax and lounge (chairs provided) to picnic and take in the amazing flora that is present all around (just in case you don't want to get your feet 'sandy').

Should you choose to leave your private beach retreat and venture out from the Hale Mahina Resort, you will find just how centrally located the Hale Mahina is to almost everything you would want or need while on Maui. Everything from high end shopping, to a local farmer's market, plus some of the best 'local' food and 5 star restaurants on the island of Maui are all just minutes away. Not to mention some of West Maui's finest other beaches and golf resorts as well.

The condo itself is truly perfect in every way, upgraded in every way with each detail meticulously fashioned to fit your every need with high speed Wi-FI and Cable too. HI Reg #W67247074-01

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: We have been traveling to Hawaii since 1976. Having explored all the startlingly impressive and truly amazing splendors of all the Hawaiian Islands, we somehow always seem to have found ourselves going back to Maui more than any of other beautiful islands. Perhaps it was all the beaches, the different micro-climates, the ability to go from the top of a volcano10,000 feet above sea level back to the warm ocean water in one day, or just the simple laid back and warm aloha spirit...

Why the Owner Chose Lahaina, HI, USA:
Each island is unique and each part of each island has it's own unique charm. Honokowai is especially phenomenal as you can see both the islands of Lanai and Molokai at the same time and whales and turtles seem to agree! Those islands also create a sheltered channel in the waters that run along the shoreline in Honokowai where the Hale Mahina is located. The grounds of the Hale Mahina are beautifully maintained and manicured daily with hibiscus blooming everywhere. When you then combine that with the fact that your beach is essentially so private that even the Hawaiian Honu call it their home and choose to lounge on the grounds; all one can say is that it is a magical place!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Sitting on the lanai, feeling the gentle breeze of the trade winds, and watching turtles and whales (during season) frolic right in front of you is something that words really cannot describe, except perhaps paradise?
