Welcome to our luxurious Maalaea, Ocean & Beachfront newly remodeled 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom Condo. This lovely unit is situated on famous “Sugar Beach”, a beautiful and quiet white sands beach that stretches for miles—all the way to Kihei. From the lanai, enjoy the sound of the surf, as well as 180-degree spectacular, breathtaking views of Maui’s south coast. You can also enjoy views from the kitchen and second bedroom of the mountains and sugarcane fields. In the morning, watch the sunrise dancing off the peak on Haleakala, one of Hawaii's oldest volcanoes. Each winter you can witness the seasonal migration patterns of the humpback whales from the lanai. This relaxing, air-conditioned unit also has cooling ceiling fans throughout. There is Wireless Internet, Cable TV’s, a DVD/VCR player, a stereo system, and a phone with free local calls. The condo is fully stocked with linens and towels, including Beach towels. There is a convenient hide-a-bed in the living room. Free parking is provided, just steps away. You will like the spacious, fully furnished bedrooms, each with a comfy Queen Size bed and their own bathrooms. Enjoy an absolutely stunning view of the endless sparkling ocean from the master bedroom. Both bathrooms have beautiful décor. The master bath has a tiled shower/tub and the second bathroom has a tiled step in shower. Enjoy the updated, full size kitchen. It is complete with all appliances, including a microwave, dishwasher, washer and dryer, all cookware and all the utensils needed to cook a wonderful meal. It is only a ten-minute drive to a large grocery store in nearby Kihei. If you want to dine out, there are several excellent restaurants with both ocean and harbor views that are located within a few minutes walk, just down the street. Our building is located on a tranquil and peaceful dead end street. Swaying palms, lush tropical gardens, BBQ’s and a pool complement the grounds. When it’s time to cool off, enjoy your favorite drink by the pool or take a snorkeling adventure with sea turtles in the warm waters in front of this lovely vacation property.
The condo is only a 12-minute drive from the airport. Best of all, Maalaea is centrally located between the towns of Lahaina and Wailea, and is only 20-30 minutes away from Makena, Kapalua, and Kaanapali. This affords you the endless recreation Hawaii is legendary for, but with the quiet serenity only the small village of Maalaea can bring you. It is no wonder why many consider Maalaea, Hawaii's 'Best Kept Secret.'
Right up the street from the condo is Maalaea village. The village includes the popular Maalaea Harbor. At the harbor you can take a snorkeling, sunset or dinner cruse. Next to the Harbor is the renowned Maui Ocean Center, Maui's #1 tourist attraction. It is a top rated aquarium that everyone will enjoy. Next to the aquarium are the charming Harbor Shops, shopping center. It features some wonderful stores, a very good ice cream parlor, and several 5 star restaurants. The highly rated Waterfront Restaurant is located on the water, on the bottom level of the Milowai. Beach Bums and Buzz's Wharf are right there at the harbor with ocean views. At the entrance to Maalaea are a water sports park and two miniature golf courses that the entire family will enjoy.

I love Maui and enjoyed staying at this condo in Maalaea! It is beautifully decorated with lots of island knickknacks and pictures. The condo had plenty of room for family or friends with two bedrooms to spread out in. You'll find the view from the balcony is simply breathtaking, particularly when the sun is going down.
Maalea is a little town situated around the harbor of Maalaea where you can catch any number of sea excursions – snorkeling, fishing, whale watching, dinner cruises or pretty much anything to do with the sea. There’s also an aquarium to visit and several restaurants and bars, all within walking distance. Even better, the condo is located at the end of Sugar Beach, which stretches for miles between Maalaea and Kekei. If you can’t find solitude on that beach you didn’t look very hard because much of it is unvisited. I took a long walk along the beach and once I got past a couple of hotels and condo complexes I had the beach almost completely to myself. The area is quiet and peaceful, a great place to get away and unwind. But it’s also centrally located so it’s very close to all of the attractions you’d want to see on Maui. We drove up the volcano and along the Road to Hana and also to a walk to the harbor for a snorkeling trip to Molokini - a small crater and marine reserve just off the coast. One night we walked just a few doors down and ate at the highly rated Waterfront Restaurant. It was all so close!
The owner was gracious and helpful, providing links and phone numbers for local restaurants and tours after asking me what I might like to do and even suggested a couple I hadn’t thought of. I had a fabulous time in Maui, especially in this wonderful ocean front condo!

Year Purchased: 1995
About the owner: I bought our unit about 20yrs ago. I had been visiting Maui for about 10 years when I found this well kept secret place.
I am retired Police Officer with 30yrs of service. I found this my break from the hectic work I did. I am now working part time at the PD doing community services. I come here to relax and forget. I can relax here or or partake many of the near by activities.
Why the Owner Chose Maalaea: I love it because it is close to everything but it is no way over crowded. I can walk on the beach and not step over hundreds of people. Sometimes I can even have it all to myself. You are only 10 - 15 minutes from most places and things. ( airport, Kihei, Wailea, Lahina, Kanaapali, surfing, boating, fishing, golfing, hiking, snorkeling, scuba diving, zip lining, ATV's, horseback riding.) You name it its close!
During whale season you can whale watch from the lanai or the beautiful grounds.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: You can walk to the harbor for boat trip ( sunset cruises, fishing trips, scuba diving, snorkeling and whale watching ) Miniature golfing, bumper boats and rock climbing are right next to the Ocean Aquarium which is fantastic. Thre are also several nice restaurants and shopping right there along with a small grocery store.
