About This Listing
Come relax in our Zen Retreat "Maui Style", we are located on the 2nd floor of a bungalow type condo, 200 steps to the ocean~ Our newly remodeled unit sleeps 5 and feels like you are in a treehouse, this is an amazing space you won't forget..........
Thank you for considering Hale Mala Hina - The House of Garden Mist. The recent remodel was inspired by our love for Japanese design and accented with Hawaiian spirit. In a word, it’s TRANQUIL and we hope the photos give a worthy sense for its true comfort. It's an ideal place for a small family or 1-2 couples.
We know you’re searching high and low to find the perfect place for your Hawaiian vacation. We think the West side of Maui is definitely the right place to look.
There are many beach parks to snorkel, picnic, or barbecue and it’s refreshingly cooler at night than other parts of the island. Restaurants of varying cuisine dot the West side, with many on the Northern end tucked away in tropical foliage, to offer the slower pace that people look for in Hawaii. Honolua and Napili Bays are absolutely stunning and are a hop, skip and a jump from our place. No need to pay for a snorkeling trip - just jump right in.
If you’re like us, we believe EATING, SLEEPING, and RELAXING are very, very important and that a great condo makes the vacation all the more memorable.
EATING – For us, one of life’s simple pleasures is to sip wine and eat our meal on the lanai – which is why we furnished it with a couch on one side and a dining table on the other. The warm, inviting lighting allows for enjoyment well past the famous sunsets, which can be viewed while enjoying your dinner on the lanai.
From the stemware to the cookware, our kitchen provides all the implements a cook would need to prepare a complete family meal. The open design, beautiful granite, and bamboo cabinetry help create a soothing and pleasurable place to entertain and prepare a gourmet dinner.
SLEEPING – Brand new pillow top mattresses with designer linens aim for the ultimate sleeping luxury. The master bedroom, with its king size bed, is smartly partitioned with beautiful Japanese shoji screens, which open up the room by day and seclude it by night.
The second bedroom, which is affectionately called the persimmon room, has a queen bed and a corner desk, which offers a convenient nook for working on a laptop. There’s also a sleeping loft with a plush twin mattress – a cozy place for nighttime reading before falling asleep.
RELAXING – After a day of enjoying the island’s activities, relax in front of the 46' High Definition Flatscreen TV with Blu Ray and Surround Sound. There is also an iPod docking station as well as high-speed wireless Internet connection. All you’ll need is a bowl of popcorn before sinking into the couch for the night.
While a full list of amenities is provided below, there are a few we’d like to highlight:
• Free Parking
• Air Conditioning
• Community Pool, Tennis Courts, and BBQ Grill
• Dishwasher, Washer and Dryer (In Unit)
• Beach Chairs, Mats, and Towels
• Picnic Coolers and Ice Packs
• High Definition Flat Screen TV (46”), Surround Sound, WiFi
• Blu Ray Player; Access to Library of Discs (40-50 Titles)
• Local Art
• World Renowned Photography
We think this luxurious condo is a great, tranquil place to stay at an incredibly affordable price. We spent a year remodeling it to a style that we think reflects our personality and taste. We hope to live here one day and so we wanted a place that would feel like our very own Hawaiian home. We hope you will think so too. There are several restaurants s in walking distance including Maui Brewing company.

Interaction with Guests
I can interact or not, I allow you to have total privacy but if you have questions or need something I am close by...
The weather is superb as well as the lofty "treehouse" feeling in our zen retreat... Island style...
There is the Maui Bus, or you could rent a moped, but I highly recommend renting a car for seeing all that Maui has to offer. Plus to take the shuttle from OGG airport it;s the same price to get a car. We offer a free parking space as well!
Other Things to Note
Ac in Master, Soji Screen doors, tree house feeling, peak a boo view of Molokai and ocean from living area and lanai, outdoor dinning. Privacy.
NON smoking even on lanai.
If you can't be ocean front, you can't beat this place in West Maui. For the price, one of the most modern, well appointed and tastefully decorated condos I have ever seen in West Maui. We have family on Maui and they were in awe of the place. Close to everything west Maui has to offer. The Farmer's Market in one direction, Napili Market in the other offer close groceries. China Boat and the Maui Brewery are within short walking distance. We walked across the street and saw many wonderful sunsets.
What an incredible gem of a place! We absolutely LOVED The House of Garden Mist, and will be back to visit as much as possible. Our hosts were very easy to contact, and the the on-island contact, Jill, was kind, welcoming, detail-oriented, and just all around fabulous.
The whole apartment is picturesque, tranquil, extremely well-stocked, and an easy place to feel at home.
The kitchen amenities are everything you need and more, making it easy to cook and enjoy. The porch invites you to nap and take in the view of a peaceful courtyard of green grass and Hawaiian plants, with a slice of ocean.
Modern, clean, and stocked bathroom with washer and dryer!
After traveling to several beaches in the area, we kept coming back to the one only 500 feet from this sweet apartment in paradise, appreciating its beauty, fantastic swimming, and the fact that it was always uncrowded.
Oh, and the boogie boards and coolers were so nice to have.
Thanks to our hosts for sharing such a magical place!
This is a beautiful condo near the beach in Maui. We had the most fantastic time here at the start of our holiday.
Everything we could have possibly needed was there. The kitchen was fully stocked, the bathroom was amazing, there are heaps of towels (including great big beach towels), swimming/snorkeling gear and it is in a great location.
We had a little bit of wet weather during our trip - but it was only ever a short drive to find a sunny beach nearby.
It is also close to a shopping village with bank, gas station, cafe, bar, restaurants, shops, etc which does make everything nice and easy.
I would stay here again and hope you have as good a time as we did.
Ideal for a couple, two couples or a small family.
We just returned from a super-fun and relaxing stay at the "Zen Retreat". My wife Amy and daughter Izzy and I were looking for a comfortable pad in a nice part of Maui to spend spring break. This even better than expected! From the pics you can tell it's cozy and chic and it does not disappoint. The pool is a nice perk and was not crowded at all. We even got in some tennis on the court. Jill was very responsive to any questions we had and felt very well taken care of. This spot is a real find. Many thanks!
This is a wonderful condo in west Maui, far enough north of Lahaina to escape some of the traffic, but close enough to Lahaina to enjoy the town in the evening. It is just a couple minutes by car from Napili Beach. The condo was very clean and well-stocked with towels, beach gear, etc. The kitchen also had all the untensils you could ever need. I highly recommend this place for a stay in west Maui.
What a wonderful place to stay. Rachel and Tony's "Zen Retreat" truly lived up to the name and we thoroughly enjoyed our trip and look forward to returning on our next visit to Maui.
Their condo is conveniently located to the best of Maui and even comes with a wonderful spot to watch the sunset. We were minutes from Honolua and DT Fleming beaches, Maui brewing right around the corner, and Kaanapali and Lahaina a short drive away.
My only complaint was that we had to leave... You will definitely enjoy your stay here.
