About the property

Aloha and welcome to the Happy Turtle! A little piece of paradise that we hope you love as much as we do. We are a newly renovated condominium located on a nine acre property in a quiet cul de sac situated on the top floor of a two storey complex. Happy Turtle is approximately a 15 minute car ride from Lahaina in Kahana on West Maui. Kahana is centrally located between the resorts of Ka'anapali and Kapalua.

Happy Turtle is nestled amongst some of the islands most beautiful flora where you can enjoy the diverse garden throughout the property. The feeling is peaceful, elegant and hawaiian comfort. The large lanai will invite you to enjoy your morning Kona coffee as you listen to the birds sing and enjoy the lush grounds. For those romantic nights, stroll to the ocean side of the Pohailani property. The seawall is about a one min walk from the Happy Turtle. Take a bottle of wine and watch the waves roll in with your sweetheart.

We just completed and extensive renovation on Happy Turtle which includes, but not limited to, new flooring, walls, Kitchen, bathroom and indoor/outdoor furnishings. Happy Turtle was designed and furnished with your vacation comfort in mind. Both bedrooms are equipped with luxurious linens and Smart TVs. The master bedroom has a queen sized bed and the second bedroom has two twin beds that can transition to a king if needed. The living area has a Smart TV, modern furnishings and sound system. The kitchen has all new appliances, new cabinets with quartz counter top. The bathroom has a walk in shower that is tiled to remind you of Hawaiian lava. Shower towels, hand towels, wash cloths and beach towels are provided for all our guests. In addition, the Happy Turtle ensures your comfort with a ceiling fan in every room as well as AC in both bedrooms.

The property is tucked away in the heart of Kahana with a unique feel of privacy. There are three BBQs with gas grills (ocean front and poolside), tennis and basket ball courts, two pools and laundry facilities. Within a short walk of the complex is the well known Maui Brewing Co. in which you can enjoy some of the Islands best craft beer that is being recognized throughout North America. In addition, Happy Turtle is close to some of our favourite beaches within 5 min driving distance and walking distance to Secret Beach.

About Phoenix Clarke

Ever since my grandparents visited Hawai'i in the 1970's, I had dreamed of coming here myself and somehow walk in their footprints. Ten years ago I was privileged to come to Maui. Ever since that trip, I knew I needed to come back as often as possible. Now I am so blessed to have this little piece of paradise to call our second home.

Phoenix Clarke purchased this apartment in 2016

Why Phoenix Clarke chose Lahaina

The property is centrally located on West Maui, close to beaches, resorts and shopping in Lahaina, maintaining a feeling of calmness and serenity.

Comfortable, clean condo with nice updates and ammenities.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at the Happy Turtle over Labor Day weekend. We started our stay with a minor issue which was no fault of the owner's and found that Phoenix was very easy to get in touch with and she worked to get the issue fixed right away. Once we were settled, we enjoyed the nicely updated kitchen, living room, bath, and lanai. Everything was in great shape and the location is quiet but close to some restaurants and nice beaches. The condo was very close to the pool and grilling area and also has a parking spot right out front. In addition, it was fully stocked with beach chairs, boogie boards, snorkel gear, and sand toys. 100% would stay again!

Property was spotless, comfortable, and well designed! Fully stocked with everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 (2 children under 6yo) stayed at The Happy Turtle for 2 weeks and loved every minute. We were greeted with a lovely note, prosecco, and a bag of Hawaiian coffee! We were also greeted with sea turtles feeding on the rocks of the seawall during our first sunset across the street! The home was spotless and comfortable. We loved sitting on the lanai for every meal and downtime we had. The smart TVs were an added bonus for movie nights! We loved all of the furniture and felt right at home. The high ceilings with fans and A/C in every room helped us stay comfortable on hot days. Phoenix has thought of everything to make this home special. We also enjoyed being right down the street from markets and great restaurants (although the kitchen was fully stocked and we ate many meals at home). Sushi at Miso Phat and shopping at “The Farmers Market” were some of our favorites. Honokawai Beach was also a favorite of ours and will always be close to our heart. So many turtles! The laundry facility was convenient and made laundry days easy. We also borrowed a few books from the common area! The pool was cool and clean, and we swam almost every afternoon. We loved our visit and hope to return again soon! Mahalo nui loa! Melinda

This condo was in a quiet location and was so accommodating for a family of four. Every detail from the decor to the accommodations were perfect for us. It was clean and updated and felt like being at home.
