About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3)

Charming, third floor, non-smoking apartment with panoramic view from kitchen, living room and balcony. Tasteful decor and tile floors create a pleasant and warm home.

You can watch whales during winter from the spacious balcony and enjoy the incredible view of the protected bay and neighboring islands all year round. People who have stayed here have come back over and over again.

Maalaea is central to the island's many attractions. 20 minutes from the airport, 20 minutes to Lahaina, Kahului and the North Shore with it's many windsurfing locations. Shopping is about 20 minutes by car and restaurants are in 5 minutes walking distance. 5 minutes walk in one direction brings you to Maalea's yacht harbor with a small shopping mall and the Maui Ocean Center (Aquarium). 5 minutes walk the other direction will bring you to a 2 mile long sandy beach.

Comments from previous guests:

We have enjoyed our two week stay in your lovely suite immensely. The view has provided endless hours of entertainment watching all the whale activity and the daily parade of turtles passing us by. We hope to return next year for a longer stay.

Your condo is beautiful. The lanai overlooking the ocean is just what the doctor ordered. Relaxing to the sound of the waves or watching a million stars at night. Truely this is a piece of heaven on earth. Thank you for an enjoyable stay!

C. and J. K., Michigan,

It is very peaceful here away from the crowds but close enough to shop and see some of the exquisit things on the island. We hope we can return another time. Again, thanks for making our stay a pleasure.

Aloha, H.

The soothing sounds of the ocean soon relaxed us into a comfortable, easy life-style. Ten days of rest and sun. The condo was wonderful! The view, both day and night was wonderful as well. The lights in 'Up Country', and across the bay, gave sparkle that was a close second only to the stars above.

Thank you for sharing, V. and S. A., Texas

The perfect winter respite! So much to do and see on this beautiful island but the simple things are still the best - gorgeous sunrises, sounds of the surf, long walks on the beach, whale watching from the lanai, warm golden days, star-studded nights, and even a full moon shimmering all the way across Maalea Bay. Knowing that we were missing Portland's third ice storm this winter made us appreciate our stay here even more.

I. and H., Portland, Oregon

We really enjoyed the condo. Very relaxed and we appreciated the little extras (i.e. boogie board, coolers, iron, etc.). We are planning to come back next year. Hopefully we will be able to get the same condo. Thanks for everything.

About The Owner

We are living in Maui since 1993. In 1996 we bought the condo so our family from all over the world can visit, be close to us and enjoy the beautiful location. I work in the public school system as a school based behavioral health counselor and manage the unit after work. I really enjoy having and sharing this beautiful place.

The Owner purchased this condo in 1996

Why The Owner chose Wailuku

In Maalea you can walk everywhere. It is a short walk to the yacht harbor, the ocean center with all the shops, restaurants, etc, and a short walk into the other direction leads to a long beach, stretching all the way to Kihei. Maalea is central to the Island and it is easy to reach many other different beaches, interesting locations and also shopping within a short drive.

What makes this condo unique

It is just soooooo relaxing. This unit has the most beautiful ocean view from the Lanai. You can watch whales in the winter and all year round see the majestic Haleakala across the bay. We had many family meals right there overlooking the ocean, listening to the movements in the water, looking for turtles with the binoculars that are available also for our guests during their stay.

Guestbook comments from the owner

From our Guest Book:

Thank yo so much for allowing us the opprotunity to have this gorgeous view for ten days .... it was a welcoming sight upon arrival and is a gorgeous one on departure.

Maui was great to us and our 3 children. Ma'alaea proved to be an ideal location that allowed us to travel to Lahaina and Kihei for our adventures (the Reefdancers and Maui Princess cruise, for example) and then return "home" for some R & R.

The beach down the street was a lot of fun, as was the pool ....

We had a wonderful time here on Maui and Unit 310 shares some of the credit with the island itself.

Incredible View

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here. The view from the lanai is incredible. Whales entertained us every day. Great location-right in the middle of the island. Quiet location. Can't wait to visit again. Alex & Pat

Great location.

  • 4 of 5

The condo is in great location. I love that I can hang out on the balcony and view the ocean and hear the splashing of the waves. The kitchen is complete with things you’ll need if you decide to cook. I recommend Karin’s condo.

The perfect location for a relaxing respite in Maalaea Bay, Maui

  • 4 of 5

We have stayed in Maalaea Bay many times over the past thirty or so years. It is always our go-to spot for amazing views, quick access to either Lahaina or Kihei and always knowing that a quiet condo complex (Island Sands) awaits our return. We have stayed in Karen's condo several times and she is quick to respond if any problems arise during our stay. We last stayed there October 8-17 2017 and plan to return as often as possible.

Its all about the view!!

  • 4 of 5

Yes the view is spectacular!!! A little tv in the bedroom and updated kitchen appliances would make it comparable to other equally priced locations. But again the incredible view makes the rest secondary. We very much recommend this property. Mahalo to the owners.

A little bit of paradise

  • 5 of 5

Very bright and clean unit. The view from the lanai was spectacular. Beach Bum's by the aquarium is a great place for a meal. Thank you Karin for the use of your condo. We will definitely recommend your unit to others.
