Property type condo

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6, Ocean Front

Our condo is literally just a few yards from the water. There are windows in every room of this condo which face the ocean offering you incredible views of Lanai and Molokai, and the sounds of the surf will bring peace to your soul and lull you to sleep at night. From the lanai, you can look down and watch sea turtles in the tide pools, see whales breach during their season, and surfers off Kahana���s beaches. Locals often tell us we have the best view on the island.

Mahina Surf is a small, quiet, non-smoking complex with lovely gardens and grounds, a heated pool, gas BBQs ocean side where you can watch the sunset while you grill, and laundry facilities. Many of our guests snorkel right off the property and tell excited stories about the fish and sea turtles they saw while sharing pupus around the pool at sunset. We are just a short 10-15 minute drive from the Kaanapali and Kapalua golf courses and excellent dining in Kapalua, Napili, Kaanapali and Lahaina.

We welcome you to become part of our Mahina Surf ohana and share our lovely bit of paradise the next time you come to Maui.

About Tammy

We are San Francisco Bay area residents who first stayed at Mahina Surf with our family 18 years ago and we all fell in love with the property and the people immediately. We returned several more times and bought our first condo here in 2000, later selling it when we purchased #228 which is right on the water with it’s gorgeous views from every room. We have made many improvements over the years replacing furniture, appliances, countertops, remodeling bathrooms, etc. Now that we are retired, we spend 3-4 weeks here a few times a year, often sharing our lovely home with our grown children, their spouses, our grandchildren and friends.

Tammy purchased this condo in 1999

Why Tammy chose West Maui

We love the beauty and serenity of Mahina Surf, the friendliness of the people who work and come to stay here. We have many guests who rent our condo every year for several weeks and treat it as they would their own home. This western area of Maui is our favorite because it is not so built up with huge resorts that you cannot see the water as you walk, run, or ride along the coast road. It is lovely and so convenient for golf, wonderful restaurants, shopping and several beaches perfect for swimming, surfing, snorkeling, kayaking and sunbathing. The area between Lanai, Molokai and Maui is the basin where the humpback whales birth their calves and stay until they have grown enough to travel back with them to Alaska. During the months from about December to April you can watch them right from our lanai or lawn areas. Come evening, we try not to miss the sunsets from our lanai or poolside with friends. My husband loves to go down to the ocean side BBQ’s and enjoy the view and friendly conversation with other guests while they grill and share stories of where they are from and what a wonderful day they have had on Maui.

What makes this condo unique

Mahina Surf #228 is the upper end unit, has two bedrooms with one king and one queen bed, plenty of dresser and closet space, a queen size sofa sleeper, two full bathrooms with large showers, granite countertops in a fully equipped kitchen, ceiling fans, high speed Wi-Fi internet, desk space for your computer, cable TV, a flat screen HD TV with DVD player and TIVO.

girls getaway

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful place! Went over to Maui for a friends wedding and we hit the jackpot! Beautiful condo plenty of room for 4 women to relax watch the sunset, turtles, BBQ, and just relax. I would recommend this to any girls vacation, family vacation, it was a place we all said we would come back to! The staff at Mahina Surf are so nice and friendly! Thank you Tammy! Sleeping was so calming listening to the ocean. Watching the turtles at all hours of the day was amazing to 4 women from Wyoming. Mahalo

We stayed here several years ago for our 25th wedding anniversary and it was just pardaise from the first morning. The sun came up, the birds were singing and the sea turtles were lolling in the surf. We enjoyed coffee and fruit on the lanai. I have a very stressful job and usually can not unwind until days into a vacation. Here it was instantaneous relief! The condo is beautiful, extraodinarily clean with all the amenities needed and as advertised gorgeous views every where you look.The community is peaceful and we would explore the island then rush back to enjoy the condo and all it had to offer. It was just the 2 of us but we tried each bedroom and shower just to experience all the ambience. Lovely and can't wait to return. Would highly recommend to any and all to experience the peace and beauty of paradise in this lovely home away from home.

Amazing relaxation spot

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great stay at this condo. The kitchen had everything you needed and more. The unit was upgraded and made you feel at home. We took our five month old and went with another couple. Everyone was comfortable. The turtle watching was so awesome. The property was beautiful. We will be back for sure. We would love to go every year. Paradise!

Maui Condo

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this beautiful condo on Maui. What a perfect place. This is the first one on the water. The views are exceptional. We slept in the bedroom upstairs and it was light and airy with a wonderful view from there as well. It comes with the use of a beautiful pool and BBQ area. I would recommend this to anyone. You will not be sorry.
