Maalaea condo description

Beachfront paradise! Enjoy whale watching and beautiful sunsets from your lanai and Sugar Beach in front of Kanai A Nalu (gentle surf). Your completely remodeled 'home away from home' has all of the comforts you need to make your island vacation unforgettable! Centrally located, this condo is perfect for couples or families. It's a great place for people who like to snorkel, dive, fish and sail, or for those who like to keep their feet on land while enjoying a fabulous ocean view! Enjoy watching the boats sail into Maalaea Harbor and visit Maui's #1 tourist attraction, the Maui Ocean Center, as well as shops and restaurants at the end of the street! If you need to stay in touch with the outside world, hi speed internet is available at no additional charge. New maple cabinets, Corian countertops, porcelain tile and wood floors enhance your vacation experience inside the condo. Island life is complete with ceiling fans in both bedrooms, the living room and dining room.


Being on top in our fourth floor, 2-bedroom, 2-bath condo only makes the view better! The condo has easy elevator access and air conditioning on days when the trade winds aren't enough to keep your comfort level perfect. Everything has been made available to you for your stay from kitchen utensils to luxurious oversized beach towels, hair dryer to coffee maker; bring only a need for relaxation and yourselves. The whales come back every year from December to April to put on their incredible show which can be seen while having breakfast on the lanai or down on beautiful Sugar Beach, directly in front of Kanai A Nalu. If you're up for more adventure, the Maalaea Harbor just down the street, has daily boat tours to Molokini reef for snorkeling and scuba diving, or whale watching and sunset tours. World class golfing can be found all over Maui, some of the closest courses- Sandalwood, Waikapu, Lani and Elleair (Silversword) are within just a few minutes drive.



Centrally located on the island, only 10 minutes from the airport in Kahului and 15-20 minutes away from the tourist areas of Wailea and Lahaina, Kanai A Nalu is world's apart in it's solitude. The condo complex is on a quiet dead end street that ends at a park and 700 acre Kealia Nature Preserve. The other end of the street boasts the Maui Ocean Center (Aquarium), shops and restaurants, all within easy walking distance. Unlike some other Maalaea properties that are only on a reef, Sugar Beach starts at Kanai A Nalu. This pristine beach stretches for miles to the east, in front of the nature preserve and its gentle surf is great for boogie boarding, snorkeling and beginning surfers. Due to the preserve, there is no development for the first several miles along this picturesque beach.


Whether you're looking for adventure or just want to get away from all the hustle and bustle, Maalaea is a great place to start! You can lounge by our heated pool or snorkel with the giant sea turtles. If you'd like to cook your own meals, you can do so in our full size kitchen, or use the gas or charcoal BBQ by the pool-but if you'd rather let someone else do the work, one of the best restaurants on the island is just at the end of our street-The Waterfront.


Whatever your interests, make sure you save time for merely enjoying the sound of the surf and watching the waves, from the lanai or down on the beach and your time on Maui will have been well spent!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: Mike and Lynnette Mote-currently living in northern Virginia

Why the Owner Chose Maalaea:
After visiting Maui for almost 20 years, we finally stayed at Kanai A Nalu and loved it! Easy to get around the island, but secluded and tranquil when we just wanted to stay at the condo-exactly what we were looking for during our times in Maui! The beach is almost always ours with just a few others sharing it and the surf is gentle enough for our little ones to play in and build sandcastles!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Easy access to tour, quiet corner, hidden gem!
