“Excellent Choice for Lahaina area Condo”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2013

We have stayed here now four times, each time in a different single bedroom condo unit. The grounds are nicely landscaped and maintained, and the pool area is large and attractive. It's located on a rocky shoreline, with lots of sea turtles to catch your attention; and it's only a short walk to a nice public sandy beach. We prefer this "smaller scale" condo complex to the mega hotels that characterize much of Maui. Moreover, it has interesting neighborhood shopping for groceries and most other items you'll need. Nearby is a small fish market, and a small neighborhood farmers' market that's open MWF mornings. Excellent local fruit and produce. Our most recent stay was in unit 105, which is nicely furnished and comfortable for two.

Room Tip: Prices vary by distance from the ocean -- but you'll hear the sound of the ocean at nights from...

We spent a week in condo 212 and had a wonderful time. My brother in law and wife along with my husband and I enjoyed relaxing in the condo that felt like home. The place was equipped with most of the things that we needed and there was a grocery store not far from it to pick up the things that we needed. The beds were very comfortable and view from the lanai was great. Our experience from reserving the condo to the check out was excellent and we would highly recommend this place to anyone. It is the best kept secret for sure as the tour guide had a hard time finding the place.

Unit 207 Mahina Surf is in a low rise older style real layback Hawaiian beach complex set in beautifully manicured tropical gardens right on the ocean front between Honokowai and Kahana. Our two bedroom two bathroom condo was so comfortable, meticulously maintained, and the kitchen equipped with absolutely everything one could wish for including herbs and spices. This was really appreciated as usually when one goes on vacation, one ends up having to buy all the basics even to create simple food - having oil, soya sauce and many other condiments available was great. The beds were excellent - our king size in the very roomy airy loft was so comfortable and our daughter loved her twin beds in the second large bedroom. We really enjoyed the louvred windows which give a constant cooling breeze and with the two huge ceiling fans, never felt hot. For entertainment there are lots of books, movies, music and a tv that we never even turned on as there was so much to do. Out front of the units set amongst the beautiful gardens is a swimming pool and barbecues are available right on the ocean front. Everything about the Mahina Surf is impeccable and the unit we stayed in an absolute delight - (they are all privately owned so they may vary). The staff are wonderful and Sharon on reception was very helpful. There is a self serve laundry right next to reception with a dozen or so machines and really reasonable ($1.50 a load) with change machine and soap powder. Mahina Surf is on rocky ocean front - great for watching the giant turtles as they come in on the swell and every day we saw whales frolicking out to sea (they finish their migration in May, so April was a great time to see them). There is a long golden sand public beach which is wonderful for swimming 5 minutes stroll to the left as one leaves Mahina Surf with some shade from the palm trees. All in all a wonderful experience and outstanding vacation. We will return! This unit is available through VRBO #436295.

Room Tip: All the condos have views of the ocean and garden/swimming pool area so I can only say that it reall...

This was our 3rd time to stay at Mahina Surf. They claim to be the best kept secret on Maui & I tend to agree. Great value! The views of Lanai & Molokai are beautiful. During whale season you can watch for whales on your balcony/patio. There is no beach but the pool was adequate for us. Units do not have air conditioning but have ceiling fans. Grounds are well kept and there is a laundromat on site. Beautiful place to relax without all of the hustle & bustle of a large hotel.

Spent a week here in late November 2012 - loved our pretty unit, saltwater pool was perfect, watching turtles bask on the rocks in front of our condo was a daily pleasure. Staff was responsive and friendly, location great for getting to good beaches, hiking areas, restaurants. We watched paddle boarders and surfers daily. This is excellent value. Family friendly.

Room Tip: Choose the units on the ends to be closer to the water, soothing sounds of the surf.

This was first place tropical I have every been and now we will be coming back every year. Next year i'm bringing my 8 year old son. This place is very kid friendly! Can't wait for him to experience it! Sharon and the manager were the two we talked to the most and they were so friendly that Mahina surf will be the only place we come to stay in Maui. The grounds are remarkable. If you have a set of balls the best snorkeling is right there at mahina! Its nothing but rocks and if you know how to read currents then its not so hard to get out.
