About Phoenix and Jim

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 and Jim purchased this apartment in 2016

Why Phoenix and Jim 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.

Great condo!

  • 4 of 5

The hosts were incredibly accommodating and very kind people. The condo is beautiful and looks as it does in photos, just a little darker inside and not very much light coming in like in the photos. The place was relatively clean and in an ideal location near beaches and towns. All in all the hosts were amazing and a pleasure to deal with.

Cute little condo

  • 5 of 5

The happy turtle was wonderful. The beds were comfortable. It was nice to have a little place to come back to and cook and eat a meal. Everything you need is already there. Hawaii was absolutely stunning and the condo made it a little homey. Thanks so much for providing such a great little place. I can't wait to come back! 😁

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Happy Turtle for 7 nights. It really was very pleasant. We enjoyed the garden view because it was very quiet and filled with birds - and we were able to walk to the ocean to watch the sunsets in less than 5 minutes. Amenities were great, and we were happy to find beach chairs and boogie boards available for us to use! We really have no complaints! Beautiful property and the owners had great communication! Our family of four was very comfortable and we would gladly stay here again! Mahalo!

We had the BEST time at the Happy Turtle. Check in/out was super easy, Phoenix and Jim were very responsive to all messages. What made this a slam dunk for us was all the beach amenities from boogie boards to to-go mugs for our drinks. Truly a beach bum paradise! We will be back soon!

Incredible Property/Incredible Owner

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough great things about this property. It has been fully remodeled from the ground up. Everything is first class.

The communication from Phoenix was exemplary and she was very kind in moving our dates around after booking and even worked with us on a last minute late check out when some unexpected circumstances delayed our return trip home.

I don't have enough great things to say about this place. We would use it again in a second.

If I had too and at an absolute stretch the only constructive things I could possibly come up with are the couch's were only big enough for 3 people so someone always had to sit on a stool or the floor and the TV in the living room was mounted really high so was a little uncomfortable to watch.

Thanks so much for the hospitality.

The Happy Turtle is Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

I can’t say enough about the Happy Turtle. Four of us stayed here for one week. The hosts were fantastic! The condo was fully equipped with everything we needed for our stay and for beach days. Phoenix and Jim also provided a lot of information about the island and activities. It was also very clean and beautifully decorated. The property is lush and well maintained. We were walking distance to convenient store, coffee shops, restaurants, and sports rental store. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and can’t wait to come back. Thank you Phoenix and Jim for sharing your beautiful place. We loved it!
