Maalaea condo description

We strongly encourage you to view our 360-degree 'High Definition' VIRTUAL VIDEO TOUR of our condo, showing the interior, the beach out front, the pool, and the oceanfront view from our lanai… The video provides a breathtaking tour of the oceanfront vacation experience that our condo in the Kanai A Nalu offers. The Link to the video is just above the 'owners profile' further down this page...

The Kanai A Nalu (“Gentle Breeze”) is located in Maalaea; a place often called 'Maui's Best Kept Secret”. From our third floor lanai, you look directly onto the ocean, a mere 30 feet in front of you – this isn’t ocean view or even beach view – it’s BEACHFRONT, OCEANFRONT!! Your Maui accommodations can’t get much closer to the water than at the Kanai A Nalu. You can listen to the ocean waves as you sip your morning coffee or evening beverage out on the lanai or let the rhythmic sounds of the ocean lull you to sleep at night…

Our 2 bedroom and 2 bathroom condo is just over 1,000 square feet of well furnished up-scale living (fully renovated in 2008) above a beach that provides a stunning view from your private lanai encompassing Maalaea Bay, Molokini Crater, the Island of Lanai, Kihei and Wailea. The condo is located on the third floor right on the beach within a short walk to the 56 square mile (nearly 700 acre) Kealia Pond National Wildlife Refuge; one of the few natural wetlands remaining in the Hawaiian Islands where you may be able to spot one of Hawaii's endangered wetland birds.

Right out front of the Kanai A Nalu is the start of one of the longest sandy walking beaches on Maui (4.5 miles from Maalaea to Sugar Beach Resort). A five minute walk away in the other direction takes you into Maalaea Harbor where you will find a small grocery store, deli, farmers’ market, fine dining restaurants, the Maui Ocean Center (rated Maui's #1 tourist attraction), the Pacific Whale Foundation, miniature golf, shopping - and probably best of all - most of the ocean activities available on Maui (sunset dinner cruises, deep sea fishing, snorkeling tours, and whale watching from November to April). Or you can hop on the local bus (for only $1) in front of The Beach Bum Restaurant and head up to Lahaina (non-stop); Kihei or Kahului (Downtown Maui).

The kitchen of our condo is well equipped for those wishing to cook and the in suite Bosch washer and dryer allows you to pack less clothing and do laundry (while you are out at the beach of course…) The Kanai A Nalu has a barbeque area close to the pool which is located in the centre of the complex. Our unit offers guests FREE long distance calls within the U.S. and Canada, the use of a 42” plasma TV, free High-Speed internet access and an in suite security deposit box. Hawaii’s natural trade winds keep the temperature just right – although we do have an air conditioner, just in case. The complex has an elevator and offers ample free parking. Although we are the owners, there is a local manager on site who will assist you while staying in our condo.

This is a very special place. Your vacation possibilities are limitless; you can relax on the lanai after a stimulating beach walk and swimming in the warm ocean below, or in the solar-heated fresh water pool. Enjoy magnificent views of Haleakala (“House of the Sun”), the long dormant, 10,000 foot volcano that rises majestically above Kihei. In the evening, dine on your lanai with the twinkling lights of Kihei in the distance and the brilliant stars above. Then fall asleep - in your oceanfront master bedroom - to the sound of waves lapping the sandy beach below.

                Excellent vacaion. Property was just as listed. Everything you could want. Comfy beds, spacious condo, excellent location central to everything. Loved seeing the sea turtles and whales right off the lanii. Only minor issue was the lg dishwasher doesn't work the best.

                My family and I stayed in this condo at the end of September, and this was by far the highlight of our trip. When you walk through the front door upon arrival, you can't help but drop your jaw and gasp as you stare into the ocean view that greets you. The view is stunning. I spent every second that I could on the lanai watching the waves crash against the shore, and staring into the blue ocean. I saw incredible sunsets at night, and just around dawn we could watch turtles swimming in the ocean in front of the condo unit. This unit is so convenient, with Lahaina only a 15 minute drive and Kihei in the other direction, it's handy if you need to go into town. There's also restaurant (Beach Bums) and a little grocery store in Maalaea Bay that we went to. The beach in front of the condo is great, there's a few rocks but we managed to avoid them as we were walking into the water. The condo unit has a boogie board that we used out front in the ocean. We also tried out the pool which is very nice. The kitchen in the unit is fully stocked with pans, cutlery, cups, plates, you name it. It has it all. The unit is decorated so nicely, and is very clean and comfortable. I could've stayed there forever. September was extremely hot, above 30 degrees celcius every day, so we needed to use the A/C at night. It is on a 4 hour timer so we would wake up around 1:00am sweating, and would have to turn it back on. During the day though you can open the slatted windows and leave your front door open (there's a screen door) and there was a great breeze blowing through the unit to cool it down. I would absolutely recommend this unit to anyone travelling to Maui, and hope to one day return to this condo again. Thank you for an unforgettable stay!!!

                We stayed at two islands and two condos in Hawaii, let me tell you why this was my favorite condo. #1. Aug and Sept are the hottest times in Hawaii. Most times you don't need AC. But our week it was 87-90 outside. This unit had AC and fans. It helped so much to get our apt cooled down at the end of the day. I would say... Never rent a condo in Hawaii without AC! #2 Awesome unbusy beach that really is at your doorstep. #3 Condo decor was new and tasteful, and beds were soft. #4 There are elevators and carts for your luggage. #5 Great central location to drive anywhere in Maui quickly #6 Very clean, no sand on the floor, no bugs. Which is hard since it is so close to the beach. Unit is small though. I wouldn't try to get more than 4 grown people in the unit. Kitchen was fully stocked and the washer and dryer were nice. Great unit with an exotic view and atmosphere, easy to get keys even if you arrive late like we did. Thanks for the work the owners put in the condo!

                The condo, the location, both outstanding. The owners were very kind to answer all our questions ahead of time. We found Ma'alaea to be very centrally located. We could get to any of the tourist areas, Lahaina, Kihei, Iao Valley, in less than a half hour drive. The condo was just as described, very clean with everything you might need, except food. The lanai was perfect. We woke every morning, fixed our tea or coffee and sat to watch the sun come up and the whales breach. It was all so relaxing and just what we wanted. There are miles of beach, lovely to walk on, with no development. We had several good meals in Ma'alaea at Beach Bums bar and grill and also a great dinner at Buzz's Restaurant. The Feast at Lele was the best luau I've been to. (2 others were very commercial.) Check out Big Beach, just south of Makena, lots of sand, a beautiful spot. We also enjoyed shopping in Pai'a. All in all, a trip of a lifetime.Thank you. And if we were ever to return to Maui, this is where we would stay.

                This ocean front condo has a stunning view and an awesome cross breeze since it is the end unit. We enjoyed the grounds and access to the pool area and resort-like beachfront. Since we travelled with two children we appreciated being able to cook our meals and do our own laundry. This unit has received some nice updates, my one suggestion would be to add some finishing touches. The entry doors both front and back as well as the kitchen window all seem old and worn out and needed some help to do their job every so often. All that said, we would stay here again and found the experience over all to be far more enjoyable than a hotel stay. Mahalo!

                We loved our stay in this unit. It is decorated beautifully with awesome baths. One thing we loved was the self closing drawers in the kitchen and baths. It makes for such a nice quiet stay. We had a big flat screen TV which was awesome and the view from the balcony was so beautiful and listening to the waves every night was like sleep medicine. Anyone would live this unit and we would certainly stay there again. You can't beat the beautiful oceanfront view just steps away from the water.

                Had a great time on Maui. This condo was great - clean, well maintained and centrally located on Maui. The location provided us with easy access to west and south Maui beaches and site, as well as, reduced travel times to Hana and Haleakala. We had no problems with it being too windy or smoke issues from the sugar fields. The ocean front location also provided us with the sound of the surf and a great view. Pros: modern appliances, washer/drier in the unit, and nicely decorated. Only con (small one) – old linen. I would definitely recommend this place and unit.

                Manager response: Aloha Joseph - Thanks for taking the time to let us know how we could improve our guest experience. We will ask our property manager to replace the linen as soon as possible - we had just replaced it in February. Mahalo, Peter and Iris

                We found the unit to be immaculate, roomy, well-appointed, and perhaps most importantly -- well-situated. Ma'alaea Bay isn't the most touristy area, but it's a short walk to some of the best restaurants on Maui, the aquarium, and miles of beautiful, nearly-deserted beach. It's also very central, and it's easy to get to all those other places when you want to. We had a fantastic time and are very much looking forward to returning!

                We chose this condo because of the location and what it had to offer, as well as affordability. I had a good idea of what to expect as the description and virtual tour of the condo was excellent. However, upon arrival, it exceeded my expectations! As soon as you walk in the door, you simply say "wow" as you see the fabulous view and hear the ocean - the ocean is literally steps away. This unit has everything you need - just bring your bring your incidentals. The condo itself is gorgeous and very comfortable. I was on vacation with my adult daughter, so having our own rooms and bathrooms was a real bonus as ladies can well appreciate. If you win the coin toss and get the master bedroom, you will enjoy a beautiful king size bed where you will fall asleep and wake up to the sounds of the ocean. The second bedroom is suitable for 2 singles, although my daughter enjoyed it on her own. It was so nice to have the use of a gourmet kitchen that is equipped with top of the line appliances including washer and dryer. We did some entertaining, so having plenty of glassware, a blender and other little things made all the difference for us. I chose to do very little internet surfing or telephone calls, however having the free wifi and free long distance calling was very much appreciated when we did use it. We also enjoyed the big screen TV and the sound system. For me, a daily morning walk on Sugar Beach was just what the doctor ordered. It is a great walking beach that takes you right into Kihei, and if really adventurous, as far as Wailea. I really enjoyed watching the paddle boarders, thinking I would like to try that sometime - or just watch! There were a few families with small children - just the right mix, not too many on either end of the age category. We didn't use the barbecue area, but several people did - the pool is very nice, clean and just the right temperature. I wasn't sure about beach towels, so now the unit has two more. The owners are very responsive and I felt that they truly wanted us to enjoy our time there. I would not hesitate to recommend this unit to anyone else, and I definitely want to be a regular visitor. When I travel, I like to stay somewhere at least as nice as what I have at home - this unit surpassed all of my expectations. Thank you very much for helping to make our vacation perfect - I look forward to another stay.

                Manager response: Aloha for taking the time to provide an overview of your vacation experience! We have tried hard to make our condo an upscale and comfortable place to experience a Maui vacation - right on the beach, listening to the ocean from our 3rd floor lanai. We look forward to having you back in future. Mahalo, Peter and Iris

                We stayed in this unit for 10 days and found it to be very nice and on par with other executive class accommodation that can be found on Maui. The unit is well located within walking distance to shops and restaurants and Malaya harbor. The unit has one of the better locations within the complex and is directly above the lawn and within 30 - 40 feet of the waters edge. The pool and barbecue area are within easy reach and both well maintained. The kitchen is well equipped, recent upgrades include: new kitchen cupboards and granite counter top. The in-suite laundry facilities are a big plus, especially for families. The unit has two bedrooms and bathrooms, both well appointed. The second bedroom is suitable for adults but, the master with California king-size bed is a big upgrade. Both bathrooms have been upgraded - the master quite stunning. Although the unit has AC, we did not use it and found the trade winds and ceiling fans perfectly adequate for maintaining perfect temperature within the unit Free wifi and long distance calling is unusual and both used by us - we Face-timed with family and even called the kennel to check on the dog. A nice touch to take some of the stress of leaving loved ones at home. All-in-all a great place and given the proximity to the ocean and other features - a great deal. No hesitation to return to this unit.

              Why Maalaea:
              This location is on a dead end street - quiet and serene - right on the beach - listen to the soothing sound of the waves lapping the shoreline... This provides as much or as little relaxation as you desire...

              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
              Very few Maui properties are ocenfront and beachfront - the property is located at the start of a 4.5 mile beach stretching to Sugar Beach resort...
