About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3)

Hale Mahina 'A305' Beachfront

'House of the Pale Moon'


Located 10 minutes from Lahaina, between Kaanapali and Kapalua Golf Resorts & Beaches. This well appointed 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath condominium is the perfect getaway for the two of you! The bathroom has been entirely remodeled as of November 2012!

Hale Mahina is a small low rise beachfront paradise only 25 feet from the beach. We have our own sandy beach with a view west with Molokai to the right and Lanai to the left. Relax on the deck and enjoy the stunning sunsets or watch for whales.

Whether you want to enjoy sitting on the grass, swimming in the pool, relaxing in the hot tub or swimming in the ocean -- it's all right outside your doorway!

A grocery store and restaurants are located within a one mile radius -- an easy and enjoyable stroll. Kaanapali & Whalers Village are 6 minutes South by car. Lahaina is 10 minutes south. Kapalua is 6 minutes north.

For golfers, the world class courses at Kapalua, including the Plantation course, home of the Hyundai championship Kapalua Golf Course is 6 miles north.

Hale Mahina is our second home. The bed is a California king size with down filled pillows. As of December 2011 the exterior of Hale Mahina has been repainted. The interior living room of A305 has been updated as well as of December 2011 with new paint, and flat screen TV, and new bed linens for the bedroom. This is truly a vacation spot where you can feel relaxed and at ease. The giant green sea turtles are out front every morning or afternoon. Every once in awhile we get a monk seal on the beach & of course grey whales out front during the whale season.

Why The Owner chose West Maui

Our family has been vacationing at Hale Mahina for the past eight years. This is truly a special complex in which every unit is oceanfront! To hear the sounds of the surf from the lanai and livingroom makes this place truly relaxing. The pool situated in such a location to be able to see the ocean makes for great views whether taking a dip or relaxing in the hot tub. We had stayed in several complexes in Maui prior to our discovery of Hale Mahina, yet once we found this unique place, there was no where else we'd rather stay when in Maui!

What makes this condo unique

Oceanfront, medium size complex, peaceful and relaxing. Great for turtle and whale watching!

  • 5 of 5

We love Hale Mahina and were lucky to find the Shell Condo! The hosts are honest, accommodating, and are doing a beautiful job keeping their condo up to date and lovely. Can't ask for a better view or a better home away from home. The other guests are friendly and fun too. We feel so lucky to be returning in a few weeks - we can't wait! Aloha

Every time we go to Maui this is the place! Best locale, best beach, super snorkeling. Easy access, great facilities. Best sunsets you could ever find. The owners are super helpful and the place is well maintained and appointed. All you need is a swimsuit and a smile................

Our stay was all we could have asked for. We are very Thankful for such great owners who were helpful and quick with responses to our inquiries, emails and phone calls. We had a wonderful and relaxing time! The condo is clean and the private location on the beach is great. You can cook, use a food processor, blender, do anything in the kitchen with exception of spin lettuce and clean the glass mirrored back splash. (No glass cleaner and a salad spinner for lettuce:))The bedroom is close to a main road and to resolve this, the owners have a jar of earplugs! But...You can hear the ocean waves hitting the beach! Our ears were very pleased! The King sized bed was superbly comfortable. As promised by the owners no air conditioning was necessary. The onsite manager is always working and keeping the grounds very clean and fresh. He is very friendly. We loved the views, ocean, beach, turtles, grounds, location, cleanliness, pool, helpful binder put together by owners about Maui. We were on a working vacation and could not have asked for more. Thank you to the owners again and again!

Owner's Response: We are happy you had a good experience and do hope you return. Yes you are correct about the salad spinner but had a difficult time locating one on island the last time I was there... Finding some items on Maui can be challenging . Will try to add to the kitchen soon. As for your other inquiry regarding glass cleaner, we have to be cautious about leaving Windex in the unit as it is easy to use not only on the glass tops but the outdoor table as well. That top is made of plexi glass and anything with ammonia over time is not good for the table on the lanai. We do appreciate feedback in order to do our best to improve our rental. Thank you for choosing to hook with us and glad it met your expectations. Mahalo!

GREAT CONDO! SUPERB VIEW! BEAUTIFUL BEACH! We were here to attend a beautiful wedding on the lawn and beach. Couldn't ask for a more beautiful spot. Watched sunrises and sunsets from the lanai. Gorgeous sunset for the wedding and wedding dinner. The sea turtles were amazing to watch. Maybe next time we'll go when the whales are passing thru. We couldn't be more pleased with the condo. Very nice furnishings and comfortable bed. Slept very well. The owners put together a very helpful binder full of information and we used it. We would rent this unit again without hesitation.

Excellent Stay! First Timers To Hawaii!

  • 5 of 5

Let me start by thanking the owner, Ann, for making the booking process a breeze! Ann was quick at responding to email inquiries, and extremely helpful throughout the booking process and during our stay. Could not have asked for a better experience. The pictures accurately depict the condo, which is absolutely gorgeous. The view from the balcony is spectacular. The boogie boards and beach chairs were a plus! Everything you need in terms of cooking utensils are present. tip for using the charcoal bbq - add a lot of charcoal ;) we made theven mistake of not adding enough and it took a long time to cook our chicken. The only downside to the condo is the roadside noise at night. Earplugs are a great idea if you have any. Don't worry about not having air conditioning, the winds are constant through the day and night, keeping the place very cool. The location of the condo in relation to other beaches is perfect! we were less than ten minutes away from Kàanapali beaches and a five minute drive from Napli Bay beach (both of which we highly recommend). Ann also accommodated a late checkout request which was awesome, as our flight home was just after 9pm. Thank you Ann for opening your vacation home to us. It was an excellent introduction to Hawaii!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely comments. We are so glad you had a good experience from start to finish and enjoyed your first time in Maui. There is a bit of noise at times from the lower road which can't be helped in order to be as close to the oceanfront as possible but we do provide earplugs for those guest who are light sleepers (like myself.) there should have been a small glass jar on the nightstand filled with them. I have contacted my housekeeper to make sure they are available to our guests. We certainly try to accommodate late check-outs whenever possible due to late night flights but during the high season it is often difficult to grant. We hope you have wonderful memories of your first time to Maui and hope you will come back in the near future!

Amazing honeymoon!

  • 5 of 5

This was a fantastic condo for my wife and I on our honeymoon. The view cannot be overstated! We stopped at the Costco in Kahului when we got our rental car, and stocked up on food for the week. The drive from the airport is beautiful and not too long. The unit is very clean and well appointed. The large slider stayed open most of the time we were there, and the sound of the ocean was worth the trip! We are an adventurous couple, so we spent our days traveling all over the island, and our nights cooking and relaxing at the condo. The location is convenient, with Ka'anapali and Lahina very close by. We stayed in a hotel on Kauai after staying here, and we preferred this condo! If we are lucky enough to make it back to Hawaii, we will definitely come back to this unit!
