My description is very long. A Maui vacation is a big expense. You should know every detail about the condo you are renting so there are no surprises or disappointments. I describe in great detail the amenities and benefits of my unit and our complex.

The main photo was taken from the master bedroom, showing how close the beach really is. No unit in our complex is closer. It truly is only 15 steps from the edge of our lanai to the sand. Lovely, 1,050 square foot, Vacation Condo. YOU CAN SWIM IN FRONT (season permitting). A condo that is Oceanfront is not the same as BEACHFRONT. A beach has sand. “Oceanfront” is on a reef or rocks...NO SANDY BEACH. That is why the Oceanfront units are less.

On over two acres with a Heated Pool, Beach Side Shower, 4 BBQ'S, Lounges, Pool Side Eating area and Lovely Tropical Grounds. I updated the condo in 2016 with a NEW Air conditioner, ALL NEW sheets, bath towels, rugs and 2nd bath's ceiling fan was replaced and bought a stroller. A 3rd twin blow-up bed was purchased for extra guests beyond 6. There are 6 Cooling ceiling fans, a Dehumidifier (removes moisture from air), 3 FLAT SCREEN TVs (2015) and 3 DVD/BluRay players (2015).

FOR CHILDREN WE HAVE: A stroller (2016), 3/4 size Crib, a High-chair, Pack & Play, a Baby Gate, Sand Toys, movie and Puzzles. There is FREE Wi-Fi and a Printer, FREE LONG DISTANCE CALLS to the US and Canada, Beach Gear, Boogie Boards, Snorkeling gear, six patio chairs, Games, Movies and a Safe for valuables. Also kitchen has a new dishwasher (2016), condiments and spices (salt, pepper, etc), coffee filters, etc. Lots of extras.

Please read the reviews on the condos you are considering. You don't want to stay in a condo that has had two or three stars, or very few reviews. Reviews are how you will find a good condo.

Compare our direct beach front views to the other units in our complex. Some are 200 feet from the water. We have an Absolutely, Direct Beach Front, Ground Floor, Corner Condo, so no neighbors on one side. Making it more private. Amazing 180-Degree View of Maui's south coast from the front corner master bedroom and Double Sized Lanai (seats 6, not just 4 like all the other condos). Compare the size of our lanai to the one right next door (you can see in the photos and in our 360-degree VIRTUAL TOUR). We also have a wheelchair accessible unit (but not completely not compliant). The previous owner was in a wheelchair. There is a small ramp at the front door, a super wide door into the master bath, and a roll in shower with a ramp and three grab bars. Also our lanai is level with the grass so you can roll right off of it onto the lawn.

We have Traditional bedrooms. No Lofts or rooms that open to the living space by a thin folding wall. Many units in our complex have open master bedrooms, including the ones above us. Our solid walls offer privacy, and a quiet retreat. $2,600 “Select Comfort” King. Each side adjusts to desired firmness or softness. 2nd Bedroom has Pillow top Mattresses on Twins. They can be converted to a 2nd King. We also have a 3rd twin bed that is a blow-up bed. Living Room has Queen Sleeper Sofa. We have Free Parking just steps from the condo. No hassle with having to go up flights and flights of stairs, or walk to the back of the building to take the elevators.

SEE OUR NEW 360-DEGREE VIRTUAL TOUR, THE LINK IS WAY DOWN the page almost to the end of the listing. I you are on HomeAway it is after the photos, calendars..keep going. If you are reading this on the VRBO site, it is just before the photos.

Most people picture in their minds their “Dream” Vacation condo, right on a sandy beach with spectacular views and magnificent sunrises and sunsets. They could swim in front, or take a walk on miles of pristine, un-crowded beach. My 1,050 sq. ft. Direct Beachfront, Ground Floor, Corner Condo could be what you're dreaming of. With so many to choose from, this is my chance to tell you what I think sets mine apart from the others.

Not many condos are this close to a sandy beach. In summer you can swim or snorkel right in front. In winter, watch the Whales from the lanai, out in Maalaea Bay. When you walk in and see the view of the ocean from the living room, you will be delighted. When you go outside, the spectacular 180-degree views of Maui's entire south coast will take your breath away. Every morning, you can watch the sun come up over Haleakala. It is truly, an indescribable experience.

The previous owner was in a wheelchair. He was allowed to enlarge the doorways and the master shower. They are wider than normal. He was given permission to enlarge the lanai to accommodate his wheelchair, plus tables and chairs. It's twice the size of the others. Being on a corner, it extends beyond the normal lanais, increasing our views even further. It has two tables and six chairs instead of the normal four. With a larger group, everyone can be together. It is the only lanai that accommodates the large comfy lounges.

You can walk right from the lanai to the sand in only 15 steps. Our condo only faces the beach, miles of ocean, Maui’s south coast, Haleakala and the island of Lanai. Surprisingly, some units don't have air conditioning. The unit directly above our condo. During the warmer months (May through October) Maui gets into the 80’s and 90’s (August & September), the humidity can be at 90%. You really need air conditioning. Our condo has air (we installed a NEW AIR CONDITIONER in 2016). There are six cooling ceiling fans and a dehumidifier to remove moister from the air.

The Kanai A Nalu has been rated the best vacation property in Maalaea. On a quiet cul-de-sac there is very little traffic. Our complex is one of three in Maalaea that is on the beach. The other seven are on a rocky reef. Many have distant parking lots and half have coin $$ operated laundry rooms. Two are next to the busy Maalaea Harbor, with its traffic, boat engine noise and fumes.

Our condo has its own in-unit washer and dryer, air conditioning, is on beautiful tropical grounds with 4 BBQ's, one of the few heated pools, and a beach side shower. It’s directly on 4 miles of beach that runs parallel to a protected wildlife refuge. On a morning walk you may not run into another person. This is the most un-crowded beach on Maui. It's like your own private paradise.

Many condos have an upstairs 'loft' bedroom, or a bedroom that is completely open to the living room and only closes with a flimsy folding wall. These offer no privacy or insulation from the noise of other guests. Our bedrooms are “traditional” rooms with solid walls and locking doors. In the master is a $2,600 “Select Comfort” King bed. Each side can be individually set to the desired firmness or softness of each guest. Two twin beds with pillow top mattresses in the second bedroom can be pushed together to create another king bed. Both bedrooms have ceiling fans and Cable TV. There is a queen sleeper sofa in the living room. The condo comfortably sleeps six adults, plus small children (we have a crib). Also added a 3rd twin, a blow-up bed (2016).

Our Corner Condo is nothing like the 'interior' units that share two common walls. They have only one window in their master, and their second bedroom window opens to the back facing either a busy walkway, allowing strangers to look in or the noisy parking lot.

Our Corner Condo has NO NEIGHBORS ON ONE SIDE. It is quieter, more private and has incredible views of the beach from the front corner, master bedroom's wall-to-wall windows. Our second bedroom has views of the ocean, the tropical grounds and the pool.

The master bath has a walk-in, over-sized, tiled shower. It has both a hand held and wall mounted shower head. The other bathroom has a full size tub, sliding doors and a shower above. Both bathrooms have cooling ceiling fans, designer accessories and wall mounted hair dryers.

You also have a view of the ocean from the updated kitchen. It has everything. Full size stove, side-by-side fridge, ice maker, dishwasher, microwave, toaster, toaster oven, blenders, coffee maker, cookware, utensils, silverware, dishes, an iron and ironing board, dishtowels and a washer and dryer.

Please compare my condo's rate to the other direct beachfront units. I am very competitive. There are many inexpensive units available. Please look at their photos carefully. Ocean Front, does not mean Beach Front. Some units are over 200 feet from the beach, at the back of the complex. Except for the direct beach front units (that face the sand), the condos in our ”U” shaped complex face each other. People are across from each other hanging out on the lanai and looking into all the other units. Not much privacy. On some of the ground floor units they have so many plants growing around their lanai and windows, there’s not much of a view. Our condo with its corner, ground floor, direct beach front location has a double lanai with fantastic views all the way from Wailea to the Harbor.

Condo's Hawaii Tax ID# GE/TA-052-562-5344-01. We rent out our own condo, but have an on island Maui Property Manager. Once you are at the condo, they will assist you with any problems or needs.

For questions, please send an email (Northern California, USA).

SEE OUR 360-DEGREE VIRTUAL TOUR. The link is below the ''NOTES', which is below the amenities section at the bottom,of the page where it says: 'Learn more about this vacation rental at the owner's website', and the LINK TO OUR VIRTUAL TOUR. You can see the interior of the condo, and the beach out front.

The Kanai A Nalu is one of only three complexes in Maalaea that is directly on the beach. The others 7 buildings are on a rocky reef (no swimming). Half use coin $$ operated laundry (sit and wait), two are next to the busy Harbor with boat engine noise and fumes, some have distant parking lots (carry the bags) and one doesn't have a pool. Kanai A Nalu is rated the best property in Maalaea. Almost at the end of a cul-de-sac, there is little traffic. Free parking is steps away. It has Tropical Grounds, Lush Lawns, A Heated Pool, Lounges and a Beachside shower. Our beach runs parallel to a Protected Wildlife Refuge. Endangered Turtles lay their eggs here. No development is allowed along this beach. It runs five miles, to Kihei. On an early morning walk you may not see another person. Explore tide pools. It's like your own private paradise and the most uncrowded beach on Maui. If you want crowds go to Lahaina, Wailea or Kihei.

Other Activities: Swim, snorkel or boogie board at our beach, just in front of the condo.

The condo is only 12 minutes from the airport.
