Just a few miles from the huge resorts and crowded beaches in Kaanapali, Hale Mahina is situated on a spectacular private beach with beautiful views of Molokai and Lanai and magnificent sunsets. The grounds are also private and beautifully landscaped with a variety of blooming plants and a green lawn area to relax on in comfortable lawn chairs provided for your use.

The Turtle Condo Maui (Building B, third floor) is a beautifully decorated, one bedroom, ocean front, ocean view unit with modern tropical decor (featuring sea turtles!) and custom Hawaiian rugs in the living room. The kitchen is recently remodeled with custom cabinets, granite counter tops, and stainless steel appliances, and a breakfast bar.

About Jim and Linda Cullen


We had been vacationing on Maui for several years and each time stayed on a different part of the island. We are drawn to the beach and found Hale Mahina to be a very special spot. We love the area of Honokawai, which is a mix of residential and small vacation properties. There are several very tasty and not expensive take-out eateries nearby, and it is not a far drive from the many popular restaurants in Lahaina town. We are excited to be living on Maui full time now. Our goal is to make your visit comfortable and relaxing.

Mahalo for visiting this listing.

Why Jim and Linda Cullen chose Lahaina

Hale Mahina has a sandy beachfront, plus a great reef for snorkeling. We are located a short distances to many shops and restaurants. Our condo comes with snorkeling gear, boogie boards, picnic gear, beach chairs, beach toys, coolers and outdoor serving ware. There is local bus service right outside the condo (but we do recommend a rental car for ultimate convenience). Our resident manager, Larry, keeps a very careful eye on the property and makes the complex a joy to use.

What makes this condo unique

Private sandy beachfront; snorkeling gear, boogie boards, complete picnic gear including beach chairs, beach toys, cooler, and outdoor serving utensils are provided for your convenience..Local bus service right outside the condo (but we do recommend a rental car for ultimate convenience). The view of Molokai and Lanai is mesmerizing, and the sunsets are spectacular. Enjoy the sunrise over the west Maui mountains just outside the front door. Watch the green sea turtles swimming between the reefs all day. They will often come up on he beach for a little R&R. In season, you can watch whales breach from the lanai.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Had a tremendous time. Really enjoyed the condo, especially the lanai. Wonderful whale watching. Everything was well equipped and were in need of nothing.

A Little Slice of Heaven!

  • 5 of 5

Maui feels like coming home for us. Our happy place! We have been to Maui and stayed in the Turtle Condo several times now and we are never disappointed. We enjoy the smaller, sense of community feel at Hale Mahina. The condo is very clean and well kept. We loved playing music on the Marshall speaker and I particularly enjoyed the Swingsan chair on the lanai. We enjoy cooking and find the kitchen has everything we need. (If I could suggest anything, adding a serrated knife would be handy to slice bread.) Having the barbecues available and having dinner on the lanai is so relaxing!

The location of the condo is perfect for us. We prefer the West Maui area over the South side but don't mind driving and exploring. We were able to find adventures that we have not experienced yet. We watched the sunrise over Haleakala, hiked the Pipiwai Trail, and also Ziplined! So much fun! We love the Turtle Condo and love all the memories we have made. We will be back again soon!

This property was a delight to stay in!!

  • 5 of 5

The unit was immaculate, modern with a fabulous kitchen. We loved the turtle decor and being able to see the sea turtles on the beach in front of the unit was fabulous. Our favorite place was the lanai!! Sitting out there and listening to the waves crashing and watch the beautiful sunsets was very peaceful. The location was perfect for all of our planned adventures. Jim & Linda were a pleasure to work with and we look forward to our next visit to paradise:) The only sad part was leaving!!!!

Thank you Jim & Linda for your hospitality.

The Turtle Beach condo is in a great location on a beautiful private beach with excellent snorkling

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Turtle Beach Condo for five days and enjoyed it very much. It is well supplied with most everything one would need and the view is amazing. We had no problem with the bedroom being too hot and humid, and it wasn't noisy like some have stated. It's a short walk to the Times grocery store, which we found was probably the best one in the area, and Fish Market Maui(poke and ceviche)

The Green Sea turtles can be seen swimming in the water and come up on the beach to rest in the afternoon.

All in all, a great property in an excellent location.

A wonderful month in Turtle Condo!

  • 5 of 5

Dave & Dori S. Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada

We chose Turtle Condo based on having previously stayed in a neighbouring condo. The views from the lanai of the grounds, the beach and the island of Lanai were dramatic and beautiful and we could see whales blowing and breeching. Sitting on the lanai in the late afternoon was wonderful. We nearly always had a cool breeze keeping us comfortable. We knew the location was ideal with shopping and additional beach access points within easy walking distance from the condo. We knew the driving distances to Lahaina and other destinations would be short and easy to navigate. All these things were true of Turtle Condo.

What we didn’t know was how helpful and accommodating our hosts, Jim and Linda Cullen would be. They responded quickly to all requests we made of them (admittedly, there were not many as Turtle Condo is well-supplied with just about anything a person would desire while in Maui). Boogie boards, snorkeling equipment, beach mats, beach chairs and more were in the condo.

We stayed in Turtle Condo from March 1 to March 30, 2018. We ate out only a few times, preferring to cook in the well-equipped kitchen. We almost always timed our evening meals to be around sundown, eating on the lanai. This was so we could enjoy the celebration of sundown by a condo resident who would blow a conch shell on the condo grounds near the beach as the sun disappeared. This was a favourite activity for many Hale Mahina residents and guests who would always show their appreciation with applause.

Some who have reviewed Turtle Condo commented upon the later evening street noise. There is some noise to be sure, but we did not find the noise to be a significant problem. We would keep the window slightly ajar at night, and nearly always experienced a cooling breeze from the window which made sleeping very comfortable. The numerous fans in the bedroom and the living area were very helpful in keeping the condo comfortable no matter what the temperature was outside.

If we return to Maui, we would absolutely time our trip to be able to stay once again in Turtle Condo!

The condo is located just north of the historic whaling town of Lahaina and the world renowned Kaanapali resort area.

The entire area is an outdoor paradise with every imaginable activity available within minutes, even a zip line. Our private beach features the regular arrival of our resident sea turtles who come up on our beach and bask in the afternoon sun! Wonderful pool and sauna in beautiful gardens. Easy walk to small restaurants, grocery, farmers market, and shops.

A small commuter airport is less than 5 minutes a way for those who wish to island hop!
