About the property

One bedroom, one bath, sleeps 2, ocean view

Aloha.

Superlatives don’t really exist that can describe the essence of Mahina Surf on West Maui. It is in a class of its own that you will soon realize when you look out across manicured gardens, bursting with color, to an ocean panorama framed by swaying palms. If you come during winter months and early spring you will see humpback whales right out front in Molokai Channel while you are preparing your seared Ahi on the waterfront grill. If you can’t make it then, the resident sea turtles will give you plenty of joy most any time as they gather their dinner in front of you along the shoreline.

If it’s human activity you want to see, catamarans from Lahaina glide by, often with colourful spinnakers flying or perhaps it will be one of the monster canoes from the local clubs out practicing for the next big race. And a new addition to the waterfront scenery is the paddle board. You’ll probably want to try paddle boarding yourself, but, in any case, you will see them plying the near-shore waters with an ease I could only wish for…

And then there is the sunset. It’s great from any place on Maui that you can catch it, but I’ve used up more gigabytes on my camera right from Mahina Surf than I care to mention and I am not done yet! Your friends back home will probably think you photo-shopped your images. You’ll just have to convince them to check it out for themselves.

I have been coming to West Maui for the last 21 years as my Hawaii destination of choice and pounced on the opportunity to buy unit #115 when it finally came available. I had noted its prime position in the complex which offers both privacy, ease of access and ‘to die for’ views. I also came to appreciate the great staff that looks after the guests and the grounds.

Unit # 115 at Mahina Surf enjoys a spectacular unobstructed outlook to the ocean with palms and flower decked grounds in the foreground. Sitting in the private, elevated garden lanai or inside preparing a tropical taste treat in the kitchen, you are always aware of the captivating setting. Furnished in a modern Hawaiiana style, the unit features travertine stone floors in the living, dining, kitchen and bath areas with solid bamboo in the bedroom. The shower is a walk-in with travertine surrounds. Granite counter tops and modern appliances and fixtures complete the luxury feel of this special unit.

Being on the ground floor, you have easy and direct access to the heated salt water pool, the giant sea turtles’ shoreline habitat, the fabulous BBQ’s and parking. And speaking of the pool, for those times when you just want to relax, the salt water pool is, in my humble estimation, one of the finest on West Maui. Views out to the ocean from in the pool or from your deck chair are mesmerizing. A drink in hand often helps expand the experience. When done poolside, retreat to your lanai, still enjoying the ever changing outlook, and give some thought to dinner. The range of choice is almost overwhelming and it will take several trips to Maui before you have even scratched the surface.

Should you choose to stay at ‘home’ for dinner, perhaps something from the local fish market will suit and allow you to test your skills on the waterfront grills. Guarantee – you will not starve on Maui, and this is good, as you do have to keep your energy level up to partake in all that is available on the Island. Welcome to an unforgettable experience. Hope you can make it.

Mahalo.

Couldn't be better

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent Christmas 2016 at Mahina Surf, all of us in two condos. It was spectacular! The kids loved the pool, we loved the lanias, the turtles were fun and the location was wonderful. The condo was well-equipped and well laid-out, so that I could cook for and feed 7 most nights. The condo and the grounds are very well cared for, and it is easy to do laundry. There was plenty of parking. All in all, it couldn't have been better! Carolyn in Montana

Like in paradise

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Mahina Surf. In the accommodation (one-bedroom) we had a lot of space. It was really nice and clean. The ocean view was beautiful.

For traveling around the island you should definitely rent a car. Lāhainā is a pretty city with a lot of good restaurants.

We would recommend this accommodation to everyone :)

Awesome experience

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time at Mahina Surf. The condo had everything we needed and more. Plenty of space, nice kitchen, and a beautiful view from the living room. Not to mention the pool area, with a view of the ocean and neighboring islands, and the grilling area, where you can regularly watch turtles swim around. We will definitely be back!

Great condo, great complex

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The location was great, and the view from our place was fantastic. The pool was nice, as well. One issue with the complex was that only one of the 3 gas grills was actually working. Also, as a heads up, the condo isn't super baby friendly. Not a criticism, just a heads up. Although our 10 month old survived with no issues (we set up stools to block her from getting at the router and stuff).
