Property description

On The Beach Living!

Look no further for a perfect Honeymoon or Anniversary get-away, whether it's your first or your 50th!

Please scroll through all of the information and photos below. Call or email us any time if you still have questions.

For whale watching there is not a better location. You are just a stones through from the edge of Ma'alaea Bay where the whales, dolphins and sea turtles all visit.

This unique ground level condominium with a private lanai is only steps to the water's edge and is perfect for watching whales, surfers, windsurfers or the world famous surf rolling across Ma'alaea Bay. Wake up to panoramic views of Maui’s south shore, Mt. Haleakala, as well as Molokini and Kahoolawe islands. The spectacular sunrises over Mt. Haleakala and brilliant skies at sunset are only two of the special moments that will make your vacation a wonderful and lasting memory.

I grew up in Hawaii and have lived on Maui for over twenty years. We could have bought anywhere on Maui but wanted only this building. We waited years for one of the perfect direct oceanfront units where we could easily step out to the beach any time of day or night. This was one of only six homes in the building that had all the elements we hoped for. Located in one of the smaller complexes on the island, it's location at Ma'alaea, mean it's far less busy, quieter and more private than other like properties anywhere else on Maui. The bonus is that Ma'alaea is central to everything - it is absolutely the best kept secret on Maui!

Within walking distance from your front door:

- Ma'alaea Harbor where you can book any of the many ocean activities available on Maui including whale watching, snorkeling adventure and sunset dinner cruises
- A number of fine restaurants including Buzz's Wharf, Beach Bums Bar and Grill and The Waterfront.
- There are also a couple of stores with most grocery needs as well as delis and fast food options.
- Maui Ocean Center aquarium (voted best attraction on Maui)
- Maui Golf & Sports Park is perfect for family fun
- Haycraft Park and Sugar Beach, one of the most pristine, white sandy beaches on Maui, it stretches five miles all the way to Kihei
- The Shops at Ma'alaea offers a variety of shopping and snacking options
- Great snorkeling and surfing is right off your lanai!

Public Transportation: Most parts of the island can be reached from Ma'alaea via Maui bus services for only $2 per route.

Owner info

About the owner: I (Jim) grew up on the Big Island (Hawaii) and has lived on Maui for about 25 years. Victoria grew up in Santa Cruz, California and has also lived on Maui for about 25 years. We have owned and operated rental properties here in Hawaii for about 35 years so we know how to do it right. We take pride in the quality of our properties and the personal service we give. We feel blessed and lucky to be a small part of some very memorable experiences for our visitors. Besides always upgrading the property we have hired a full time management company to assure our guests can always reach someone if they have a need.

Why the Owner Chose Maalaea:
Ma'alaea is central to everything and has some of the most pristine and barely used beaches - it is absolutely the best kept secret on Maui! Having lived on Maui for roughly 25 years we could have bought anywhere on the island. But after looking at every direct oceanfront building, we had interest in only a couple and chose this one for it's location. We waited years for one of the perfect direct oceanfront units to become available, where we could enjoy the expansive ocean and outer island views throughout our home and step out to the beach any time of day or night. This was one of only six homes in the building that had all the elements we hoped for. Located in one of the smaller complexes on the island. it's location at Ma'alaea mean it's far less busy, quieter and more private than other like properties anywhere else on Maui. Our guests love it as much as we do and return year after year.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
This property is one of the most quiet, private and romantic locations on the island. We take pride in keeping the property clean and up-to-date. And unlike absentee owners, because we live on island, we have a unique opportunity to tune it up regularly! It's very important to us that our guests have a positive and memorable experience so they return and share our property with their friends. In addition we employ a management company to assure our guests that someone will be available at all times should there be a need. Warmest Aloha, Jim & Victoria
