About the property

*MAHINA SURF 204 * MAUI TURTLE CONDO* *DREAMS COME TRUE, MEMORIES ARE MADE* Watch sea turtles feed in their natural habitat, whales, spinner dolphins, and sunsets from Mahina Surf 204 deck. We saw 21 turtles on the beach next door :) Fall asleep to the sounds of waves softly crashing on the beach, light scent of plumeria, and feel the ocean breezes coming through our new louvered windows. Visit our website at mauiturtlecondo to see *videos of the grounds and snorkeling with lots of turtles in front of our condo. This was done by a professional photographer from LA. He even added music and sent to me to use:)

Mahina Surf 204 is a peaceful, charming 2 bedroom/2 bath recently completely remodeled ocean front condo located just minutes from Lahaina, Ka'anapali, Kapalua, and beautiful ocean sand beaches. Our special paradise is the perfect place for a couple, two couples, family, and/or friends to make those special memories. Just minutes from golf, snorkeling, sandy beaches, sailing, dining, Farmers' Market, hikes, shopping, gym, and a host of beach activities. From the ocean edge at Mahina Surf, you can watch people surf about a block from the condo, or go surfing yourself. Mahina Surf's 56 condos are on Maui's leeward shore, which is known for year round sunshine, trade winds, and pristine beaches. Relax in a solar panel heated saline pool, which feels so soft on your skin, enjoy the lush garden grounds, peacefully read a book by the turtles sunning themselves, take wonderful pictures, swim with turtles, visit with family and friends, or sit at one of the ocean front benches and watch the sun set between the islands of Lana'i and Molokai. Love our island views:)

Mahina Surf 204 is a comfortably furnished condo designed to allow you to experience the beauty of Hawaii in a tropical setting. Recently remodeled *fully equipped kitchen: cook on the glass top stove while watching beautiful ocean views, granite counter tops, new maple cabinets, wood beamed ceilings, refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, blender, and lots of dishes. Elegant travertine tile floors in a diamond pattern throughout the condo, which help keep it cool and clean. In the *living room: relax on 2 chaise lounges or the sofa, dining table, high ceilings, Sony 40' flat screen LED high def TV, wireless high speed internet, movies and Maui books. *2 Bedrooms with very comfortable beds purchased May 2012: master - king bed, loft - queen bed and twin bed, + sofa bed and twin floor futon for small child. *2 Baths - main - bathtub and shower, loft - shower. We recently purchased new towels, sheets, quilts, and kitchen supplies. There is also a safe, 2 beach umbrellas, ice chests, noodles, mats, and beach towels for your use. Prepare meals in 204 or outside at the 3 ocean front gas barbecues. Remember to watch for whales, turtles, dolphins, and sunsets. Then enjoy eating on our inside table or the new lanai table. All year round, watch the turtles feeding in their habitat from the lanai of 204, at the ocean's edge, sunning themselves on the sandy beach next door, or swim with lots of turtles. During November - April, watch the humpback whales breach, and mothers and their calves play before migrating back to Alaska.

Maui offers countless fun-filled activities year round. There simply is not a time of year that is not perfect to be on the island of Maui. Mahina Surf 204 has been in our family for many years. We have so many special memories, and look forward to many more. We hope that you will call us, and enjoy our special paradise. Since I am a retired teacher and Joe recently retired, please call us if our calendar shows rented during the dates you want. Sometimes, Joe and I can be flexible with our dates. We recommend Maui Turtle Condo for a romantic getaway for two, two couples, families, friends, adventure seekers, wildlife lovers, *where else can you sit and read a book with several sea turtles for hours...., snorkelers, photographers, perfect for the young and old.

Mahalo, and we hope you will make Maui Turtle Condo a part of your dreams and memories.

About Connie and Joe Ravenel

Thank you for your interest in our Maui turtle paradise. We hope you decide to stay and make wonderful family and friend memories. Please read our reviews. Joe and I are both retired. I am a retired elementary teacher, so the condo has lots of Hawaiian books for adults and children, Disney movies, and sea life drawing books to enjoy after a long day of snorkeling with the turtles or adventures. We have 4 adult children, 3 grandchildren, and pets.

Connie and Joe Ravenel purchased this condo in 1973

Why Connie and Joe Ravenel chose Lahaina

Fantastic location, beautiful ocean views, incredible number of turtles that you can watch come into feed from our deck, weather, away from crowds, but extremely close to some of the world's most beautiful beaches. As many times as we've been to Mahina Surf 204, we are always very eager to return.

'Maui no ka oi' means 'Maui is the best', and the west coast is the best part. We love the area, the quiet, and the location minutes from Ka'anapali, Kapalua, Napili and Lahaina.

What makes this condo unique

We are constantly remodeling, and trying to provide you with everything that you will need for a comfortable stay. In the last couple of years, we completely remodeled our special paradise: new equipped kitchen, 2 bathrooms, beautiful travertine floors, comfortable furniture and beds, deck table, lights, fans, painted the condo, water heater, LED flat screen TV, wireless internet, new dishes, and since we are now renting on our own, you get to use our towels, sheets, kitchen supplies, beach towels, and linens. We also have beach towels, sand chairs, beach umbrella, snorkel gear, ice chests, and a large bucket filled with sand toys.

Mahina Surf 204 has been a part of our family for over 40 years. We have so many fond memories, and hope to make many more. We love our time in Maui, and think you will too.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My wife and I along with my brother and sister in-law stayed here for a week. We were in condo 204. It was very nice and everything was updated, what looked like very recently (wireless internet, flat screen TV, well maintained/clean).

Great view of the water. Love the fact that you can walk down and almost always see turtles at the feeding ground right in front. Also loved the BBQ grills that overlook the ocean, nice touch. It was also nice to have a quiet and peaceful place to come back to after a day of adventures.

Simply Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! Where do I begin? Connie and Joe are very responsive to questions and sincerely care about the quality of your trip. There is so much information on Maui in the condo and all the supplies you need. We stayed for a week Jan. 30 thru Feb. 6, 2018. There were 4 of us. Our kids are 22 and 18 and the condo was a perfect fit for us. The grounds are meticulously cared for and beautiful! The location was so convenient to anywhere your adventures take you. It only took 13 minutes to get to Lahaina. The beds were really comfortable and the condo had so many nice touches. The kitchen was well stocked also. There was a refreshing cross breeze coming off the ocean and thru the condo that cooled us off and the sound of the waves lulled us to sleep. The view was off the scale beautiful! We thrived on getting up and having breakfast and coffee on the lanai and watching whales. And there were many of them! We visited the turtle beach several times a day and saw up to 12 on the beach. A bonus was looking closely in the water and finding dozens more feeding. We were mesmerized watching them. We didn't get a chance to swim in the saltwater pool but we will be back and do just that. The whole experience was relaxing, rejuvenating and simply wonderful. It is a quiet place to stay. It was fun talking to people as everyone is drawn to the turtles. We eagerly await our next visit and recommend the condo without reservation if you are looking for a relaxing Maui getaway. This was our dream vacation and it didn't dissappoint. Thank you so much Connie and Joe!

Comfortable accommodations, well stocked and clean!

Especially loved the beach toys and snorkel gear - they were a huge hit with our family and made things so convenient. Kitchen was fully stocked and loved having a plethora of beach towels at the ready.

loved the views and turtles

  • 5 of 5

This is the place to see turtles! The condo was very comfortable for our family - 2 adults and 2 teens, and the bed layout upstairs was perfect for the teens to have their own space. We loved being so close to the sleeping turtles on the beach. Wish the water was calmer so we could have snorkeled with them, but weather wasn't that great - although no fault of the condo! We were glad to have the lanai facing the ocean. So relaxing! The master bed was very comfortable, my husband is very picky so that was great. The owners were very responsive and directions for finding the condo and getting inside were very clear. We were happy to have some amenities such as snorkel gear, body boards, binoculars, books and movies to watch. It rained several times so we watched movies at night. Thank you Connie and Joe!

Everything we hoped for

  • 5 of 5

Mahina Surf #204 was the perfect location for us. Close to many great beaches, eateries and golf courses, but condo complex itself is quiet and very relaxing. Sat on deck and watched whales every morning and Green Sea Turtles sunning themselves on rocky beach next to condo on some afternoons. Connie and Joe answered all questions and provided us many good tips for places to go and things to do. We would absolutely book this condo for our next trip to Maui.

Great Ocean Front Condo

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Mahina Surf Condo #204 December 11 - 26, 2017 . It was well equipped and clean. When we arrived at the condo we found that the safe didn’t work and the light in the kitchen above the sink was not working but Connie answered our email and had these issues addressed very quickly. The views from the deck were amazing from double rainbows to watching the whales. Most of our meals were eaten out on the deck either watching the sunrise or the sunset. The upstairs loft worked great for our daughter /son in law and granddaughter. The bathroom was stocked with everything you could need for the beach, including boogie board, snorkeling supplies, goggles, coolers etc. The master bedroom had you falling asleep to the the waves crashing on shore and waking up to the waves crashing as well as the birds singing. The pool was great, and very clean. The view of the sunsets if you were at the BBQ area was spectacular. There were turtles there at low tide sometimes up to 10 of them at one time. The grounds themselves were very well maintained. There is a beach close by ( 5 minute walk) and Honokowai Beach is a 5 minute drive the other direction. We often walked down to Bad Ass coffee and grabbed a beverage of some sort, and then took it across the street and sat on the beach ( Honokowai). Our only suggestion would be to get a metal turner that could be used to flip burgers etc while bbqing. Many thanks for sharing your home.

Owner's Response: "Views from the deck were amazing", so happy you enjoyed staying for a couple weeks in our special turtle paradise. We love counting the turtles coming to feed, whales during the whale season, sunsets and sometimes even double rainbows from our deck. We also love going to sleep with the sound of the waves, and waking up to them. You can even see the ocean as you cook on our stove. The pool is now saline and solar panel heated. Fun to swim under the stars, listen to the waves, and once I even saw a whale breech right in the middle of the sun as it was half in the water. I was in the pool, so no picture except in my mind. Glad the loft worked for your daughter, son-in-law and granddaughter. Happy New Year. Hope you come back soon:) Thank you, Connie and Joe

Owner's Response: We love to hear, "I would definitely return." Happy that you had a wonderful time and loved being right on the water. Love our view and all our sea turtle neighbors. Some days I see 20 to 50 turtles! And love that they sun for around 3 hours on the lava rocks next door during low tide. Please come back soon. Thank you, Connie and Joe
