About Randy Hull
We both work in some aspect of the television industry. Randy is a director of photography/camera operator and Susan is a producer for a HGTV television show. We lived on Maui for 11 years, but moved to the mainland for work and to be closer to family. We have traveled the world extensively, but always cherish our days on Maui! We love to play golf and tennis and when we are on Maui, we snorkel, kayak, surf, hike and enjoy our friends. We have one daughter and one granddaughter. (Who are already fighting over the condo, when we die!) We have been so blessed throughout the years, so we would like to open our home to others, so they may enjoy Maui, as much as we do!
Randy Hull purchased this Condo in 1999
Why Randy Hull chose Lahaina
We came to Maui in 1999 to look for an investment property. We weren't that serious about buying, but it was a good excuse to go to Maui. After several days of looking at condo's, we decided to check out golf course properties. We met a realtor, who was showing an open house and told her what we did and what we were looking for. She agreed with us, that a house on a golf course wouldn't work for us. She, however, told us about a condo, that may be coming on the market. It all depended on the current owners search for a larger house. Not five minutes after saying this, the owners of the condo walked in the open house and told the realtor they found a house and wanted to put their condo on the market. Since we were still there, the owners invited us over to their condo. The moment, we walked into the condo, I knew I was in trouble. It was an amazing condo,with amazing views. We toured the house and I could see in Susan's eyes she wanted it. We went on the lanai to discuss the condo. First of all, it was bigger than we wanted and a lot more money than we could afford for a second home. Susan didn't care, so I told her, if we see a whale breach completely out of the ocean, (as we had a drink on the lanai) we would put an offer in. Well, long story short, a whale breached. My next back up plan was to make an offer so low, that the owners would turn us down. We left the condo, Susan was thrilled we put an offer in. I was thrilled, knowing they would counter and WE could get out of it. NOPE!! That didn't happen, they accepted and now we were going to be Maui Condo Owners. That night, we were down at our hotels beach, discussing what we had done. At some point during our discussion, we noticed a rainbow starting/ending at Hale Mahina. With so many signs, we decided to uproot from the mainland and move to Hawaii. ONE OFTHE BEST DECISIONS, WE HAVE MADE IN OUR LIVES, SECOND TO US GETTING MARRIED!

We had a great stay in this condo. Exactly as billed. Right on a cool little beach. Had turtles on the beach 2 of 7 days. The rooms were all very nice with a very functional kitchen. All in a great location. Really fun stuff.
25th Wedding Anniversary Family Trip
We had a fabulous time at this resort in such a beautiful location. Owner was so great to work with and I would definitely recommend this place to a family. Plenty of room for everyone. And, seeing all the sea turtles was a real bonus. Thank you, so much!
Views, location, more views
I cannot even begin to describe the location of this place. From the master, you can see both Moloka’i and Lanai. The ocean is steps away. We went snorkeling every day, so many shallow water areas teaming with all sorts of tropical fish. Honestly, you don’t end up spending much time inside. Pool was warm, hot tub was hot. Close to pretty much anything:
10 minutes to Whaler’s Village
15 minutes to Lahaina
Less than 40 minutes to the airport
This was a lovely place to stay. I can not recommend it enough.
Everything was as listed
We arrived in the afternoon to the most beautiful sunset that continued for a couple of hours. The only thing missing was turtles on the beach. They showed up through out the week, and we were amazed every time we saw them.
The condo was as advertised. I have no idea how they got the floors so clean and free of sand. The kitchen was stocked with all the cooking items(pots, pans, plates, etc) we needed to prepare meals for 8 adults. We brought all our own food, and cooking supplies. We had 3 adults in their 20's that slept on the couch, sofa bed, and blow-up mattress. I was worried that it wouldn't feel like enough space for all 8 of us, but everyone moved comfortably around the condo. There was space to draw, read, listen to music or visit. I think the TV was only on once during our stay. There are quite a few TV's around the condo.
It did get hot in the afternoons, and we had been advised about that ahead of time. We were there in August, so we had to expect it would be hotter. There were ceiling fans and table fans in every room, and a couple of fans in the living room. We pulled the curtains in the heat of the sunset, and walked down to the beach with our plastic tumblers in hand. We enjoyed visiting with the other guests and building manager. This is a place you could spend every minute of your vacation. We used it as a home base and explored the beaches and areas around Maui. We ate most of our meals at the condo and had bought our groceries at Costco as soon as we got off the plane.
Thank-you Randy for your prompt answers to all our questions, and sharing your condo with us. It was a family trip we will all remember. It was my 82 year old Mom's 50th state to visit. She was able to come and go to the beach with her walker whenever she wanted. There is an elevator in the building and close to the condo.
This place was amazing! Waking up and having coffee every morning and sitting on the balcony with the most amazing view was very enjoyable. Everything was perfect! Plenty of room for all 8 of us. Had a great time!!
Loved it. Great location. Beautiful view. Right on top of the water. Sea turtle on the beach when we arrived. Snorkeling equipment provided. Plenty of room for family of five. Can’t wait to come back.
