Condo, 2 Bedrooms + 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)
About Property Manager
We live in the foothills of Northern California and are often surrounded by 3 feet of snow in the winter so after vacationing in Hawaii for over 30 years, our dream was to have a 'real' home on Maui where we can enjoy the marvelous climate and beauty of the island.
Property Manager purchased this Condo in 2007
Why Property Manager chose Maalaea
Maui offers a healthy lifestyle where we can enjoy swimming, snorkeling and especially our 5 mile walk on our quiet beach. We wanted to be close to everything yet away from the crowded beaches, hotels and tourists so Maalaea was just perfect, centrally located and truly unique to Maui.
What makes this Condo unique
We love that we can walk to great attractions, harbor excursions and restaurants and feel we have the most beautiful beach on Maui. The water in the bay is calm which is important to us since we love to swim and snorkel. Our completely remodeled condo is on the ground floor so you can walk on the lawn and out to the ocean and are not captive on an upper-floor lanai.
Pool / Spa
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Lovely condo, great location
This is a well cared-for condo located in a quiet area on Maalaea Harbor, only a short drive from the airport. We liked the location, which made it easy to access all of the areas we visited in Maui during our stay. The trade winds kept the unit very comfortable so we didn't need to run the A/C at all during the day, which was a very nice surprise. The condo is right in front of the water and we had dozens of sea turtles hanging out quite close to shore each day. Very cool. Communication with the owners was quite good and they did a very thorough job of documenting all of the things we needed to know to have a great stay here. No complaints and we would gladly stay here again!
Green sea turtles right outside your lanai
Greeting us on our arrival were several green sea turtles in the bay right up to the shore. Very clean unit. Comfortable beds. A/c unit was odd but effective when used. No condiments or food left by other guests, but we knew that ahead of time. We did not cook during our 5 day stay. Quiet unit and lovely grass area off the lanai. Very little laundry soap provided so we bought our own.
Sorry you were short on laundry detergent. A call or a text to us would have ensured that our management company brought some more out to you.
Perfect condo! Fantastic location, beautiful surroundings and great property!
Hawaii is not Hawaii if we couldn't hear the crashing of waves in the ocean at night when lying in bed, or feel the sea breezes throughout the house during the day. Simply perfection. The cross-winds made it so we never needed to turn on the air conditioning. Even when we locked-up and went out for the day, all we needed to do was open the windows upon returning and the cool breeze instantly cools the entire condo.
Sitting outside at night we enjoyed seeing the lights of Kihei across the bay. The grass out back is lush and looking over the edge of the wall we could see turtles swimming in the ocean during the day. Initially, we wondered if not having a beach out back of the condo would be disappointing, but it allowed us to have a more peaceful experience without beach-goers flocking.
Everything was close by, shopping, attractions, and restaurants were all in walking distance. The condo has everything you could want, from a fully equipped kitchen to a table and chairs on the lanai. They even had some snorkeling gear and beach towels available.
We loved the entire property. It is well kept and beautiful. The grass in the back stretches down along the backs of the other condos and you can literally step outside and walk along the grass (past a couple other condo buildings) and end up at a small beach. Or step out front and walk down the sidewalk to a larger beach area.
The second bedroom is very comfortable too with ample closet and drawer space. And, with the parking lot back a ways from the building, it's very quiet. If you sleep with the bedroom door open you can still hear the waves crashing out back.
Before the trip we received a lovely welcome packet with lots of information about the condo. The property and condo was just as described on the website, but even better in person!
Everything was clean and top quality. It's easy to see why this property has a 5-star rating. Susan was very helpful and nothing was too much trouble. We could feel the pride that she and her husband have in their 'piece-of-ocean-paradise', and we felt proud that we were able to stay at their beautiful condo home and we so look forward to staying there again in the future.
Maalaea Harbor (home of the Aquarium & Pacific Whale Foundation) is a great area and we highly recommend this property for both value and for the memories that we will have forever. Five stars just doesn't do it justice.
It's simply an awesome condo.
We can't wait to return!
Mahalo. We hope you can come back again. We all need a vacation.
Great place to staty!
Susan was a great host. Very communicative and the place was fantastic!
Great location and beautiful views from this condo! Condo was clean and we had great communication and instructions from the owner. Would definitely recommend for the price!
third year now!
We have stayed in this rental three years in a row now. We feel like it is our home away from home. The condo is very nice (love the main bathroom) and you will love being on the floor level so you can walk out to the beautiful soft grass to the ocean. We see turtles almost every morning and evening. There isn’t anything you wouldn’t love about this rental! It has everything you would need.
Mahalo. You are always welcome to share our home. Sometime it would be lovely to meet.
Why Maalaea Bay? Location, Location, Location: Maalaea Bay is located mid-way between Lahaina and Kaanapali to the North and Wailea to the South. It is 3 miles from Kihei, a great place for moderate priced dining and shopping. The location cuts off hours of driving time to and from the best of what Maui has to offer, like a quick zip to Hana, the Volcano, and East Shore. We are only 15 minutes from the airport and the big box stores (Costco, etc.). Watch the whales from your lanai while taking in the view of the Haleakala Volcano and Molokini. During the season (January – March) the Humpbacks come into the Bay, where the water is calm, to have their calves. Watch them through our telescope.
The Beach: Enjoy five miles of pristine, white sand beach, the longest stretch of undeveloped beach on Maui. It will never be developed because it is a Wildlife Preserve. We love to walk the 5-mile (round trip) stretch of beach from Maalaea to Sugar Beach. What a great way to exercise.
Other Activities: The Maui Ocean Center Aquarium (voted Hawaii's Top Rated Attraction), a beautifully landscaped Miniature Golf Course & Amusement Park with bumper boats, trampoline, rock climbing, are all walking distance.
Golf: Four Golf courses within 5 miles - including Sandalwood, Waikapu, Maui Lani, and Elleair (Silversword), with the world-famous Wailea and Makena courses only a few miles south. Ka'anapali is only 20 minutes north.
