We stayed at this condo for 6 weeks, Mid-January to February 28, 2018, and we have stayed here previously. It has everything you could want. The view is spectacular. You can see one or two turtles on the beach in front of the condo almost every day. The location of Hale Mahina is very good for us- midway between Kaanapali and Kapalua. For me, the fact that the lanai is shaded in the afternoons is great (and necessary). The owners are very accommodating and quick to respond.
Our only complaints are with the whole property, not this unit. There are not enough parking spaces when all of the units are occupied. This is exacerbated by the fact that the resident manager has 3-4 vehicles parked there every day & night- he should only be allowed one space. And, because of the shortage of parking, the two places where smoking is allowed frequently have cars parked in the way. And the facilities/amenities for smokers are minimal and not so nice. If you are going to force smokers to use only these two areas, they should be nicer and not where cars are likely to park. Lastly, whatever spray is used in the elevators is pretty nasty smelling. I'm sure something with a pleasant scent or better yet, no scent could be found.

We had a great stay at The Fish Condo. The unit has amazing views of whales and sea turtles, Molokai, and Lanai. The condo faces the west and we had some amazing sunsets. None of the condos at Hale Mahina have AC, but being a top floor unit, A406 had breezes that cooled it down each night. We stayed for a week and wished we’d stayed longer.

Reviewing options for our first trip to Maui, and for a "milestone" birthday, I wanted somewhere we could use as a homebase for our activities but would also give us the option of being able to really feel relaxed and comfortable when we were there.

Hale Mahina is definitely it, and specifically, this condo! Walking in, it looked *exactly* like the pictures -- everything was immaculate and there are no better views than out on the lanai! All the other reviews basically say the same thing -- this place is even better in person than what you see in the photos!

We were even pleasantly surprised -- we had stopped at the supermarket on the way there to get some basics, and found many of them already there as thoughtful touches when we arrived. The kitchen is great for when you want to eat in, and the lanai looking over the grounds/pool/ocean were magnificent. It really looks like a postcard! Everyone we interacted with there, from the resident manager, to a few full time residents to other guests -- were very nice and all were friendly and laid back.

There's an elevator which is awesome, and will help those with limited mobility. However, be aware that I think all units in this complex have three steps down to the main living area (but they are very wide and our unit had a railing as well, which was very considerate). I'm not a senior (yet!) but having a dad who's starting to slow down with walking, I notice these things wherever we travel,, and this unit would have been fine for him to navigate with the wide hallways, the step in shower and open flow throughout the condo.

The location can NOT be beat. Less than a mile away is the Farmer's Market where we quickly got addicted to fresh coconuts and acai bowls. There's a handy folder with all sorts of menus and the owners' recommendations that was fun to look through as well. Lahaina is less than a 10 minute drive away, and we were usually there once a day to just grab one of our meals or wander, or hit up Island Cream Company for some fantastic dessert.

Typically, we scheduled one activity a day, then would come back to the condo to just sit and stare at the water and listen to waves, or go into the hot tub and pool. Even at this time of year, the ocean wasn't too bad, and you get used to the pool being a tiny bit chilly when you first go in. ;) Being from the East Coast both were still warmer than what we'd get in the Northeast in the summer!

From the lanai we even saw whales on the few mornings we thought to look for them and there were turtles 8 of the 10 days hanging out on the beach at some point during the day. We were there for 10 glorious days, and hope to go back!

Working with the owners was easy and fuss free and they have been fantastic in all our communication with them. I can see why the condo and this property get great reviews. Thank you SO MUCH for having such a gorgeous well maintained property! Mahalo!!!!

Our first experience in Maui and what a nice surprise. We took this trip
as a delayed honeymoon and stayed in May which was a perfect time
to go. Our stay at Hale Mahina condos was perfect. This is a older complex
with some updated units and well maintained and secure grounds. Every unit faces
the water. Folks this place is right on the beach! Our unit was A-201 with Beautiful views from the patio and ocean breezes all day long. The updating consisted of the bathroom,
kitchen and workout room. Most, if not all the condos do-not-have-AC. Access to parking a piece of cake, shopping is 5 - 10 min away and drive to the airport +- 45 min.
In our view this was a 8 out of 10. For the price point its midrange so you don't have to break the bank. It allows one to enjoy what the rest of the island has to offer.
Pleasant travels!

We found this to be just the perfect beachfront condo in an ideal neighborhood location! The view from the balcony is fantastic.
During the day we swam and snorkeled right off of the property’s private beach (we used the snorkel equipment provided in the condo). When we weren’t in the surf, we enjoyed the pool and the lawn area. We did it all.
You’re within walking distance to moped rentals, surf shop, farmers market and day spa. But several mornings and evenings, we just relaxed with breakfast or happy hour on the balcony, gazing at the ocean with the calming sound of the surf.
Upscale restaurants are a short drive away in Lahaina and Kaanapali, or the condo’s new kitchen makes it easy and enjoyable to cook any meals you want – like dinner while watching the sunset from the balcony.
We’ve stayed in the big Maui hotels in years past, but it’s a really nice change of pace to stay in a nice condo in this peaceful setting. Would highly recommend for my friends and family. The owners have thought of most everything you need for a really great vacation.
