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. 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! The entire property, including the units and grounds, is designated as non-smoking throughout.
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 West side 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 Hawaiian 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 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!

About Rick and Kris Hacker
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!
Rick and Kris Hacker purchased this Condo in 2011
Why Rick and Kris Hacker chose Honokowai
We have been coming back to Maui off and on for the past 29 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!
What makes this Condo unique
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!

We loved everything about the Condo and our stay.... we will be back :-)
One of the best home away from homes!!
Seriously one of the best trips I’ve been on and what a beautiful location to call your home away from home! Rainbows every morning to whales jumping right off the beach, we WILL definitely be back for sure! Thank you so much for everything!!
Perfect family time
This was our second time at the condo. We loved all of the updates and even got to reunite with some of the other guests from last year. This condo allowed our family a place to relax, visit with the turtles daily, swim, read, snorkel, and create memories. I am so grateful for the ability to vacation here.
We are so glad to have you as a return guest and glad you liked the updates. We do try to do a bit of upgrading every year. Hope to have you back again next year, so you can see the next round of upgrades! Aloha, Rick and Kris
Great place in great location!
We had a really great time at Mahini. It was very cozy and enjoyed the lani. There were whales all the time just in our view and watched the sunset with the other people staying there.
Pool was really nice and warm. The location was very ideal to eating and sight seeing.
Would recommend it to anyone and will be looking to stay again. Cheers Kari and Simon
So glad that you enjoyed your stay and were lucky enough to be here during whale season!
Hope to have you back again soon!
The view from our place was beautiful. The condo was very nice and the location was
great. Loved the pool and walking the path to see the turtles each day. We did think that
the furniture showed some wear but the setup of the condo was good.
Glad you enjoyed your stay and our beautiful views! We continue to remodel the condo room by room. In fact, we just purchased new living room and kitchen furniture last September. It's an ongoing labor of love!
We loved it!
Great little rental with excellent views of the ocean and close to shopping and incredible beaches. The unit has everything you need and office staff were very helpful. Can’t wait to go back!!!
So glad you enjoyed your stay. Hope to have you back again soon!
BEACHES: Maui has so much to offer and of course it's beaches are some of the best! Great beaches near our property are Kahakeli, 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.
