We NEVER require any damage deposit—we never charge for broken things or swim gear that does not make it back from the beach. Accidents happen, and you should be able to use our condo and our swim gear with full enjoyment—not always fearful of a damage charge. All we ask is to simply let us know so we can replace the item for the following guests.
Yes, our Condo UNIT ITSELF is Actual OCEANFRONT (unlike 80% of the other so-called 'oceanfront' listings wherein they count the condo building as oceanfront, but their unit is located on the side of the building, affording only a view of the ocean). Make sure any other condos you are considering are IN FACT RIGHT ON THE OCEAN. Consumer group research showed OVER 80% of condos advertised as 'oceanfront' or the like, were NOT. The building was on the ocean, but the units advertised as oceanfront either faced the back side, or offered just a view of the ocean. Our unit IS RIGHT THERE, literally fronting the ocean--just 50 feet away.
Ocean WAVES crash just BELOW LANAI--50 Ft.--Located RIGHT ON Maalaea Bay, Maui, Hawaii, USA. Convenient Central Maui, 20 minutes from Kahului Airport, Kihei, or Lahaina.
Accommodation is a second-floor condominium that sleeps two adults and two children/teens (not for 4 adults). One bedroom with a queen-size bed, and convertible, queen-sized sofa bed. One full, modern bath.
Quick Summary of Attributes: You have come to the right spot to enjoy the VERY BEST OF MAUI. Our Maalaea Bay Home is very desirable due to the following features. * Oceanfront--unlike many others advertised--WE ARE RIGHT ON THE OCEAN--with the waves beneath the lanai. * On a quiet, low-traffic, peaceful street (aptly named 'Hauoli,' meaning happy or delightful) * Adjoins a 700-acre wetland that is a preserved National Wildlife Refuge; supports a diverse variety of migratory birds, featuring four miles of undeveloped, sandy, uncrowded beach * DUCTED AIR conditioning to BOTH living room and bedroom with remote control for separate temperatures in each room--unlike most others advertised, which are merely 'window shaker' units * Largest pool in Maalaea * Free WIRELESS BROADBAND INTERNET--work inside or outside * Two telescopes and Bushnell binoculars for whale watching or stargazing
Detailed Background Information: You will have the peaceful sound of the ocean crashing ashore just 50 feet from your fully-equipped, lighted lanai; a restful sound that resonates throughout the spacious living and dining areas. You will breathe in the gorgeous unobstructed daytime view of all of Maalaea Bay, Molokini crater crescent, Kihei, and Mount Haleakala. Stunning sunrises over Mount Haleakala (for those few willing to get up at that hour, it is worth it).
The evenings are just as special; enjoy the soft romance of warm breezes, the tiki-torch-lit shoreline, the sight of a CLEAR MOON-RISE over majestic Mount Haleakala, the light shimmering across the bay.
You will appreciate this one-of-a-kind location. Our Maalaea Bay Home is on the one and only residential street in Maalaea Harbor; it is called Hauoli (Hawaiian for happy or delightful) Street. Enjoy strolling down this quiet tree-lined street, listening to the birds, and inhaling the delicate fragrance of plumeria blossoms.
At the end of the road is Heycraft Park, just a short walk from our home. This is where you will either enjoy swimming in sparkling clear waters or start your walk along four miles of beautiful, uncrowded, sandy beach bordering the Kealia National Wildlife Refuge. (1/4 mile walk, or drive since there is parking)
It was established in 1992 and is home to endangered native water birds, and hosts migratory ducks and shorebirds in fall, winter, and spring. This refuge provides 700 acres of some of the last remaining natural wetland habitat in the State of Hawaii. Kealia Pond is nearly 250 acres when full. The refuge is adjacent to Kealia Beach, which is a nesting ground for the endangered hawksbill turtle.
More than 31 species of birds, such as the endangered Hawaiian stilt and coot, and migrant waterfowl and shorebirds such as the Pacific golden plover use this refuge. You can approach the refuge from your walk along the ocean, or use the roadway to access an interpretive kiosk and boardwalk along the beach and refuge mudflats.
In summer months, the Refuge Pond shrinks, and many more shorebirds congregate here to take advantage of food exposed as the pond recedes. As the pond shrinks, fish are crowded into the remaining water, making them easy prey for black-crowned, night herons.
Another advantage of the CENTRAL LOCATION OF MAALAEA BAY is the proximity of so many attractions, all within easy walking distance. You can stroll to the nearby FIVE-STAR restaurants, the Maui Ocean Center and Aquarium, the Yacht Marina with tour boats for deep-sea fishing and whale watching tours, The Pacific Whale Foundation, and the Maalaea Harbor Village shops and restaurants.
Within the Maalaea Bay community of eight condominiums, the building of Our Maalaea Home stands out as an outstanding facility with well-groomed grounds. Barbecue is a delightful experience, with three grills just on the shoreline. Relax in the large pool, while enjoying the view of the crashing waves.
Back at our home, you will find everything spotlessly clean and completely furnished for all of your needs.
The AIR CONDITIONING is brand new, and ducted from outside to BOTH the front and rear of our condominium, with INDIVIDUAL REMOTE CONTROLS for each room, affording desired, quiet comfort. FREE BROADBAND Internet plug-in cable hook up is provided for your convenience. Compare to all other units: mostly 'window shaker' air conditioning only.
We have maintained our home as a SMOKE-FREE, pet-free environment for the enjoyment of our guests. Please do not smoke on the lanai inasmuch as the smoke travels to other units.
Queen size Beds (1) Bedroom Mountain View. Really refreshing breeze available through bedroom window. Even when Kihei is sweltering with no air movement, the angle of the valley and the mountain can generate a lovely breeze. YES, this bedroom does have its own ducted air conditioning unit, with individual controls for the bedroom itself. BUT most guests love the mountain air breeze. Maui air is soft and sweet, and the lovely fresh breeze is favored by most. Try it!, Sleep Sofa or Futons (1) Newly Refurbished -- Queen Size, But Best for just one adult or two Children/Teens -- like ALL of those couch convertible beds, this queen size unit is not as good for TWO adults when compared to a standard bed. BUT some love it because of the relaxing sound of the ocean waves heard crashing from this bed. You have the ocean breaking on rocks just 50 feet off your lanai--VERY seductive--it will attract you for a nap or to try a night's sleep!...moreless
