About the property

1 bed, 1 bath, oceanfront condo in the heart of Ma'alaea!

Our condo is DIRECT OCEANFRONT, BEACHFRONT! You can't get any closer to the ocean than our condo! Maalaea village is a gem with its central location and its fantastic trade winds. They provide a cooling breeze that keeps the temperatures just right, A/C just in case the cross breeze in the unit isn't enough for you. Ceiling fan in the living room too.

From the lanai, gaze out and watch the sun rise over Haleakala (House of the Sun), the long dormant 10,000 foot volcano. Watch green sea turtles bobbing up for air and rolling in the surf, even sunning themselves on the beach. In the winter months (Nov-April) you will have a front row seat to breaching whales as they come back to the islands to give birth and nurse their young in the warm Hawaiian waters. In the summer months during a good south swell, you can watch surfers on the legendary surf break “Freight Trains”, the world’s fastest surfable wave.

Beautifully landscaped grounds with the solar heated pool and Jacuzzi, it will make any stress you have brought with you melt away. Slip into to the pool and enjoy the ocean view while you relax in the Maui sun.

The kitchen has a Sub-Zero refrigerator, Dacor oven and is fully equipped with cooking utensils, pots, pans, blender and all of the other basic supplies to comfortably enjoy cooking and eating in. There is also a great BBQ area oceanfront so you can enjoy the view while you cook up some delicious food!

Our Master Suite is styled to resemble a luxury hotel. We use 100% white cotton 550 thread count sheets, king size pillow top mattress king size down pillows (hyper allergenic upon request). You will be climbing into heaven after a day of exploring our stunning island.

Our bathrooms are beautifully tiled with a clean updated and stylish look. 100% cotton white bath towels and hand towels are of course provided.

Enjoy a meal on the private lanai or just sit out and enjoy the view with some Maui grown coffee.

At the end of our cul-de-sac is Sugar Beach, 3-4 minute walk from the unit, the longest stretch of sandy beach on Maui. 5 miles of secluded sand to walk, run and beachcomb. You won’t find any crowds here because access to the beach is protected from the road by the bird-filled-ponds of Kealia Wildlife Refuge. It is so amazing to walk this beach and literally feel like you have it all to yourself!

A 5 minute walk in the opposite direction takes you to Maalaea Harbor where you will find a small grocery store, deli, craft market, restaurants and the Maui Ocean Center (Maui’s #1 tourist attraction), the Pacific Whale Foundation, miniature golf, shopping and most of the ocean activities available on Maui (sunset dinner cruises, deep sea fishing, snorkeling tours & whale watching).

Centrally located Maalaea, makes getting anywhere on the island easy. 15 minutes from the airport, a 5 minute drive south and you are in the long village of Kihei and a bit further, the resorts of Wailea. Twenty minutes to the west is the old whaling village of Lahaina, with it’s magnificent Banyan Tree and shopping galleries. You couldn’t be in a better location to explore all Maui has to offer.

Other perks include:

~Beach towels

~Beach chairs

~Beach umbrella


~Free parking

~Free WiFi

~Washer and Dryer inside the unit

~50" Flatscreen tv

Plan on packing personal toiletry items. Since we supply the initial supply of paper towels, toilet paper, and other dispensable items to get you started on your vacation, you should plan a trip to the grocery store to replenish these items, as you need them.

Beachfront condo in Ma'alaea!

Disappointed, would not stay again.

  • 1 of 5

We've stayed in the Ma'alaea area many times before and highly recommend it. The location of the condos in this area is very convenient.

The pictures of the condo posted on VRBO drastically embellish the condo.

Inside the condo - we found the housekeeping to be deplorable, floors were filthy, upholstered furniture was dirty and filled with stains (we put a sheet on the couch so we didn't have to directly sit on it), garbage disposal had a foul odor and wasn't working, multiple light bulbs out, one window a/c unit located in the living room did not cool the bedroom (fan provided but it didn't cool the room enough to be comfortable), shower curtain had mold on the bottom and smelled.

Location of the condo - is directly near the building elevator, trash chute creating unwanted extra noise if you have the bedroom window open. This second floor unit sits directly above the building common area lobby and vestibule to the pool, so sitting on the lanai you hear and see all the traffic coming and going.

Pool area and adjacent lawn - the exterior areas were well maintained and lush. Although, there's a hedge that runs parallel to the ocean that is thick and tall, creating a visual barrier to any ocean view while your at the pool or sunbathing. (unless you're very tall!)

Unwanted vendor and contractors - after we arrive and without any notification to us we were visited by the cable company and a repairman to address the ice maker. We notified the owner about the non-functioning garbage disposal and had a third contractor arrived to make the repair. We told the owner we had purchased a mop to clean the floors ourselves and sent her a photo of the filth, her response - she would have sent a cleaning crew, there was no need for us to have bought a mop. But by then, we didn't want more contractors, vendor intruding.

Walls & ceiling - the interior of the unit is in desperate need of patching and painting.

Closing Comment -

Repairs and a proper cleaning should be completed BEFORE guest arrive.

We would not recommend staying at this condo,

Location was great. Grounds beautiful. Comfy bed

  • 4 of 5

This location was perfect for what we needed. Our itinerary for Maui was quite busy so we basically chose a place centrally located and wanted something on the ocean with a view and a pool and this covered all the check marks. The place is exactly like the pictures, however there are a few things that need fixing but nothing that was crucial to us. Some fresh paint, new drapery, and perhaps some board games and cards would help pass the time.

We really enjoyed watching the turtles and sitting by the pool in the morning.

One negative thing was they close the access to the grounds at 9:00pm which we found a little early. You couldn't get access to beach side or even sit by the waters edge after that time. It was a little annoying.

The wifi was great, so if you do need it know that you won't be disappointed.

For those first timers to Maui, there is traffic here, so give yourself time. We were stuck for almost an hour in traffic.

This is walking distance to the harbour and the ocean centre and to the big beach.

Overall we loved Maui and with some updates we would definitely stay here again.

We will most definitely stay again!

  • 5 of 5

Location could be be beat! Minimal commute to everything! Condo was clean, quiet and equipped with everything you could possibly need - from cooking utensils to beach gear. No need to pack anything but your clothes! The view was amazing - LOTS of whales to see from the lani & turtles at the private beach on the grounds. Pool and grill area were great for nights in. We will certainly be back to the Ma'alaea Banyans!

Yes, We really could see whales from the couch!

  • 5 of 5

The picture sums it up perfectly. It's small (okay for two people) but the location is perfect. I have a dozen pictures of the sun coming over Haleakala. Since it was February, humpback whales were often seen from our balcony. The location in Ma'alaea is so convenient to everything - right in the middle of the island so you can go anywhere you choose. The long sand beach down the road has sea turtles every day. The TV being the bedroom is a little inconvenient, because my husband wanted to watch at night (after I went to bed). Otherwise excellent! Would definitely tell others about it.

Nice place

  • 4 of 5

Place is nice, needs a bit of TLC. Condo is pretty warm without A/C in the bedroom. The A/C just does the living room and kitchen. There was a good size fan that kind of helped. Coffee pot leaks a bit. View is lovely. A local that lives in the complex told us not to swim or use the beach as there was sharks close by. That was a helpful tip. A piece of the baseboard fell off by the door, tiles are a but ruined in certain spots, big gash in the stove top, portion of ceiling in the bedroom looks a bit ratty. Assuming A/C unit used to be there.

Although some downfalls the place is nice and very central. 10 min to Kihei 25 min to Lahaina. Few restuarants are within walking distance. Be aware it's very windy. If you use the beach at the end of the block bring chairs unless you'd like to eat sand while laying on on your towel tanning. Owner replies very quickly and is helpful.
