About the property

1 bedroom, 1 bath condo with beach access and ocean views

Welcome to Hale Mahina A-302! With a direct oceanfront view and located on a secluded and gated white-sand beach, our condo is perfect for those looking for a quiet and relaxing West Maui getaway.

Our favorite thing about this condo is the VIEW! Unobstructed views of the islands of Molokai and Lanai, with spectacular sunsets year-round.

We spend countless hours relaxing on our private lanai, and we're certain you'll do the same!

We are on the third floor of a boutique, low-rise complex that is just minutes from Kaanapali, Kapalua and downtown Lahaina. Our complex features free parking, an elevator, a gated oceanfront pool and spa with a large grass area overlooking a white sand beach. The grounds are spectacular and well maintained with plenty of lounge chairs, picnic tables, and bbq grills. The on-site manager Larry is always working diligently to make sure the grounds are in pristine condition. He is knowledgeable and friendly, and always happy to answer any questions you may have. We also employ a property management company with a 24-hour a day dispatch service, should any issues arise during your stay.

About Heidi and Ken Winslow

We are busy real estate agents in Northern California who have vacationed in Maui several times a year for many years. It seems to be the only place where we truly unwind and enjoy a slower pace in life. We were engaged in Maui in 2012 and married there a year later. Owning this property means we get to share our love of Maui with our family, friends, clients and you! We have rented condos directly with owners on all the Hawaiian islands for years, so we know what amenities are important in achieving the perfect home away from home. Feel free to call, text or email us with any questions at any time. Aloha!

Heidi and Ken Winslow purchased this condo in 2016

Why Heidi and Ken Winslow chose Lahaina

When the opportunity arose to purchase a condo there, we jumped at the chance. Hale Mahina quickly became our first choice from the minute we set foot on the property. The beautiful grounds, the private beach with expansive lawn area, the functional layout and the spectacular views had us hooked! Larry, the on-site manager is meticulous at making sure the property is in tip-top shape. He is friendly and always willing to answer any questions you may have. It's no wonder people who vacation here come back time and time again!

What makes this condo unique

The views of Molokai and Lanai from our balcony are unbelievable! We sit and watch the sunset every night and are in awe of the beauty that surrounds us. The private white-sand beach directly in front of our unit is rare for this location and we treasure the ability to walk downstairs and immediately jump in the ocean! The grass area is huge and there are plenty of lounge chairs available to sit and watch the surf. The pool and spa area are direct ocean front and access is gated and locked to ensure privacy. We love it here and we trust you will too!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had an amazing stay at Heidi's condo. She was extremely communicative prior to the trip, even mailing me address tags for our luggage. She was helpful with anything we needed during our stay. The view is more incredible than the pictures and we saw at least 10 sea turtles swim past during our stay! The location is great - very close to downtown Lahaina and so many beaches. Kapalua, great for snorkeling, is just 10 minutes up the road. There are chairs, an umbrella, and a cooler for use. It's a quiet, relaxing place with a small beach for condo use. Everyone was very friendly. The grounds are well maintained. I also love that there is a guestbook in the condo so you can read the notes of people who have stayed before and leave a note for those to come. We would absolutely stay here if ever in Maui again!!

Amazing Views and Wonderful Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this beautiful condo and we enjoyed every minute of it. There are condos out there and then there are "Special" condos out there. “Special” condos are hard to find. They are the condos that have everything possible you can think of to make your vacation stay special. Hale Mahina A-302 is one of those rare, "Special" condos. It had a stocked kitchen, Hawaiian ambiance, comfortable furnishings, private beach, and amazing ocean and islands (Lanai and Molokai) view. It has all the comforts of home with an amazing, panoramic view. The view cannot be beat, nor can you get any closer to the beachfront. We certainly found paradise here. It is the perfect condo!

Whale watching from the private lanai did not disappoint. Everywhere you looked, there was whale activity to view. To see whales "breaching" right from your lanai is a sight to see, not to mention seeing whales with their young swimming. The location of the condo is where whale watching boats bring their passengers to view whales. We also saw dolphins almost daily and Sea Turtles came up on the beach frequently. The small private beach was very inviting. If you love to snorkel (equipment provided in the condo), swim with the sea turtles, boogie board (provided in the condo) surf or paddle-board, you will not be disappointed; you can do it all from this lovely, private, beautiful beach. The condo location is also very convenient to fine dining, casual restaurants, shopping and sightseeing.

This condo is great for celebrating any special occasion or just for the need of relaxation and vacation. Location is very important, and this condo has it! Heidi and Ken are great owners and take much pride in their property. They are very detailed-oriented with providing all information you can possibly think of when renting their property from sightseeing recommendations, dining recommendations to information about the condo. They forward a packet of information to you before your stay along with a parking pass. They are very responsive to any inquiries or concerns you may have. The property manager on site (Larry) takes impeccable care of the grounds and landscaping. It is truly a pleasure staying at this property. It will not disappoint! We would highly recommend this property to all our friends and family. We have experienced many memories staying in this special condo along with our Maui journeys. We are so looking forward to our next stay here.

Everything we wanted in a vacation rental!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay Hale Mahina, this was a perfect condo and location! The owners, Heidi and Ken, were super accommodating, they sent out a welcome package ahead of time with a detailed description, directions, and recommendations, including a parking pass for free parking(There was never any difficulty finding a parking spot either.)There is also an onsite property manager who is really nice and helpful! The condo itself is super cute, and felt like home. Not only is it well maintained, but has everything you need, from in house laundry, to a full kitchen with all of the pots, pans, plates, utensils, etc, you need. We made a Costco and grocery store run, and ended up eating most of our meals here. They also provided everything you need for a perfect beach day.....beach towels, boogie boards, ice chest, beach bag, chairs, and snorkeling equipment. The kitchen and living room are an open floor plan and you can enjoy the ocean air and view from the living room. The furniture was nice and comfortable, as was the bed. Everything worked great, good water pressure, bathroom and kitchen look like they have been updated. The lanai is also well maintained, and clean. The view is a dream! We could see whales off in the distance, turtles in the water, and were lucky enough to see a bunch of dolphins pass through each night while watching the sunset. We loved that it is a smaller property. The beach is totally private and the property is really quiet. There's really a sense of community, and getting to know your neighbors when your hanging on the beach, grass, barbecuing, or hanging at the pool/hot tub. Just outside of the parking lot, is a bike/walking path. We went for long walks every morning and watched the sunrise. This place is right around the corner from an ABC store, Farmers Market and local stores. We also rented mopeds within walking distance and kept them overnight which was one of the highlights of our trip to venture out and sight see. We hung out in the water frequently on the private beach here. It was amazing because you can walk a long way out into the water, on soft sand, and still be able to touch. A big bonus is that it is like the turtle Super Highway:). We would be standing in the water and they just come swimming right underneath you! I would definitely stay here again and recommend it a hundred times over!

Fantastic Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Heidi & Ken have a great place right between Napili and Lahaina. Fantastic unit. Great view, right on the beach. Heidi and Ken gave us lots of suggestions of places to go and most were right on. The unit was well stocked with necessities like kleenex, toilet paper and dishwasher soap. I don't think they could have improved our stay in any way - it was fantastic. Would definitely stay there again. Loved it.

Great place on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this condo and will definitely be back! Beachfront view is amazing and the private little beach was great, our kids loved it also. The only downside is that the pool was way too cold to swim in, so the kids were disappointed. However, the condo has everything you need, I really like the layout and we spent lots of time on the Lanai. We saw a huge turtle on the beach one day!

Attention to detail, well stocked and updated.

  • 5 of 5

Preparation from the owners started as soon as we booked our trip at Hale Mahina A-302. The communication from them prior to, during and even after was excellent and very much appreciated. I received a packet about a week before our flight with everything we needed including a long sheet of highly detailed tips that really set us up for success. I now understand and appreciate why it is called "absolute beachfront" you are literally right on the beach!! The owners did a wonderful job putting some modern cosmetic updates on what I'm assuming was previously dated. It felt like a brand new remodel and was decorated with an appropriate island theme. I was so impressed with how well stocked the condo was! The kitchen had everything I needed just like home, which saved us money allowing us to use that money towards other fun things :) They had fins, snorkels, beach chairs, boogie boards, laundry, games and more. The view from inside the condo and the lanai was indescribable. I found myself getting lost by the scenery and sound of the waves crashing. We saw sea turtles come on the beach almost daily! The location of the condo seemed like a really great spot. We loved walking to the farmer's market in the mornings and getting fresh coconuts and acai bowls! A short drive to shopping, restaurants and areas of interest made it nice because we liked to pack a lot into our days. Some days we didn't even want to leave the condo and adventure so it was great to be able to take a 20 second walk down to the beach and jump in. I will definitely be returning to this condo in the future and have no reason to look for anywhere else to stay. Thank you for allowing us to stay at your second home in Maui and for providing us with such a well prepared and unforgettable experience!!

Best vacation ever!!!

  • 5 of 5

Maui has been on our family’s bucket list for a long time and we were fortunate enough to be able to get away from reality for almost a full week. Ken and Heidi’s condo and private beach was a dream come true. Everything about this place was perfect, well organized, well equipped and has such good energy. Our family was able to enjoy and embrace the beauty of the island and the beautiful town of Lahaina. We will definitely be coming back here again soon! Thank you so much Ken and Heidi! ❤️
