Maalaea condo description

DIRECT BEACHFRONT/OCEANFRONT 1 BEDROOM, ONE BATH MODERN RETREAT. Makani A Kai unit A-4 is a completely renovated, ground floor unit. Just open the screen door and there's the beach! You can't get any closer to staying 'on the ocean' if you tried!

Located in the village of quiet Ma'alaea, this one bedroom, one bath, ground floor getaway has modern tropical furnishings and updated appliances. Your private access to the beach is literally 10 steps from the condo! This unit resides in a quaint, 24 bungalow complex, at the end of a dead end road. No highrises, crowds, tourist traffic or noise...just imagine!

Ma'alaea has an old town Maui vibe, completely removed from the crowds of the bigger resorts. People say 'this is what OLD Maui used to look like'. The property starts at the beginning of 5 miles of white sand beach (Sugar Beach), where you have complete access 24/7, for long walks, shell collecting or jogging. Next door is a calm beach for snorkeling and swimming, protected from currents. For the wave rider, the unit sits on three surf breaks (south swells, summer months). Boogie boarding, surfing and stand up paddle boarding...right outside your door!
Watch the sunrise from your lanai over the grand volcano and jewel of Maui, Haleakala Crater. Enjoy the sparkling lights of Kihei across the bay at night. Complimentary access given to our guests to: BBQ gas grills and fenced freshwater swimming pool.

This property is located on Ma'alaea Bay, a designated National Marine Sanctuary Area! You will see significant calving and breeding whale behaviors, November through April. Whale activity can be witnessed directly from the Lanai, while having morning coffee, reading, grilling or swimming in the private pool. We provide complimentary binoculars for your exclusive use during your stay, so you can watch these amazing creatures! Simply awesome!

There's a quaint local grocery store within walking distance (Tradewinds) for local sustainable produce and meats, liquor,cold drinks, and Island treats!. Local daily farmers market (within walking distance and another is just a 10 minute drive) with modern grocery stores also a 10 minute drive, along with a shoppers paradise for everything you will need to enjoy your stay.The unit is in a central location for Maui!

Ma'alaea is also home to its own harbor, with 24 hour coast guard protection. Easily within walking distance, you can enjoy booking and taking off for a whale watching adventure, sunset and snorkeling/dive cruises or sightseeing tour directly from this harbor. The Pacific Whale Foundation Research Center and retail/tour booking offices are a 10 minute walk from the property. The Maui Aquarium is located next door. Great for the kids!

Since the Japanese Tsunami in 2011, the harbor has undergone huge renovations.The economy resurgence is bustling now at the harbor which now boasts a newly restored Ma'alaea General Store (try the bread pudding and other homemade treats) and most recently, both a new modern, modestly priced Italian restaurant (Saltimbocca) AND a casual pizza and sandwich shop (Porto). Beachbums restaurant rounds out the choices as a local watering hole with live music and the best breakfast in town: Loco Moco!

How nice to be able to walk to these services, and support the local growth and economy of tiny Ma'alaea! The owners FELL IN LOVE with this area...off the radar!

Relax and enjoy the very best we have to offer...

The condo is completely tiled, with a well stocked modern kitchen and updated energy efficient appliances, tiled walk in shower with glass block, king size bed, air conditioning, KEYED SAFE FOR VALUABLES, free wireless Internet, DVD, cable, comfy island decor, upgraded towels and sheets, private lanai, fenced pool, gas bbq, beach side chaise lounges, shared laundry house, beach chairs, beach towels, beach umbrella and cooler for your excursions.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2008

About: This Ma'alaea beachfront condominium is a dream come true for high mountain Colorado sport enthusiasts and part-time Maui residents Kurt and Andrea Zeiner. The Zeiners have a longstanding connection to Maui, and wish to share this incredible property with others who seek peace, privacy and a true 'old Maui town' vibe for their vacation. 'We love the fact that there are no crowds seeking the glitzy resort vacation feel at this property'. We love to surf, boogie board and stand up paddle board right from our unit. The turtle and whalewatching locale is amazing! Best of all, it is quiet, peaceful and off the beaten path! We hope for a peaceful and magical visit for each and every guest who stay at our special place. How lucky are we ALL!

Why Maalaea:
This property is at the end of a quiet street, with direct and private access to the beach. It has an 'old Mauitown vibe', and basically is 'off the radar' for most visitors to Maui. The property is also the finest place to view whale activity on the Island! That is why the Pacific Whale Foundation and the Maui Ocean Center (Aquarium) chose Ma'alaea for their location. The trade winds provide natural 'air conditioning' so you can feel 'green' about your stay here (along with access to local sustainable produce/meats grown just a few miles away)!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Ma'alaea is peaceful...The complex is very quiet. This is the most common feedback we get from our guests....Sugar Beach is never crowded! The Pacific Whale foundation is a 10 minute walk from the property so you can walk to your whale watch tour, or take educational classes without a car! Boogie board and stand up paddle board rentals are available just down the street. This central location is perfect as a jumping off point for a excursion to Lahaina Town, Haleakala Crater, the road to Hana (rain forest), and upcountry. Finally, the entire unit is remodeled to a very clean and modern standard, making your stay first class in comfort, first class in beach access, first class in quiet privacy.
