Property description

'Last minute' Booking Special: $159 for any open nights in July 2015, 4 night minimum. See rates for details.

Lovely, 1,050 square foot, Vacation Condo You can't get much closer to the sand than this. DIRECTLY ON THE BEACH. YOU CAN SWIM IN FRONT (season permitting). Oceanfront is not the same as BEACHFRONT. A beach has sand. “Oceanfront” is on a reef or rocks...NO SANDY BEACH. That is why the Oceanfront units are less.

Also, the units on the upper floors may say "only 25 feet to the Beach". To get to the beach you exit out the back door, go down the walkway to three or four levels of stairs, or walk to the elevator which is at the back of the property, exit the elevator, and cross almost the entire property, out to the front. Not really 25 feet to the beach. My condo is truly "15 Steps" from the edge of our lanai (I counted them) to the sand.

Please read the review on the condos you are considering. You don't want to stay in a condo that has had two or three stars, or very few reviews. Reviews are how you will find a good condo.

Compare our views to the other units in our complex. Some are 200 feet from the beach. We have a Beach Front, Ground Floor, Corner Condo, so no neighbors on one side. Making it more private. Amazing 180-Degree View of Maui's south coast from the front corner master bedroom and Double Sized Lanai (seats 6, not just 4 like all the other condos). Compare the size of our lanai to the one right next door (you can see in the photos and in our VIRTUAL TOUR). We also have a wheelchair accessible unit. The previous owner was in a wheelchair. There is a small ramp at the front door, a super wide door into the master bath, and a roll in shower with a ramp and three grab bars. Also our lanai is level with the grass so you can roll right off of it onto the lawn.

On over two acres with a Heated Pool, Beach Side Shower, 4 BBQ'S, Lounges, Pool Side Eating area and Lovely Tropical Grounds. Condo has newer carpeting (2014), new bedding in master (2015), newer blinds in the master (2014), new blinds in back bedroom (2015), 6 new patio chairs (2015), newer stereo/CD player (2014), Air conditioning, 6 Cooling ceiling fans, Dehumidifier (removes moisture from air), 3 FLAT SCREEN TVs ( two new in 2015), 3 DVD/BluRay players (2015), a Crib, a High-chair (2015), a Pack & Play (2015) a Baby Gate, Sand Toys, Puzzles (VERY CHILD FRIENDLY), FREE Wi-Fi and a Printer, FREE LONG DISTANCE CALLS to the US and Canada, Beach Gear, Boogie Boards, Snorkeling gear, Games, Movies and a Safe for valuables. Also kitchen has loads of condiments and spices (salt, pepper, etc), coffee filters, etc. Loads of extras.

We have Traditional bedrooms. No Lofts or rooms that open to the living space by a thin folding wall. Many units in our complex have open master bedrooms, including the ones above us. Our solid walls offer privacy, and a quiet retreat. $2,600 “Select Comfort” King. Each side adjusts to desired firmness or softness. 2nd Bedroom has Pillow top Mattresses on Twins. They can be converted to a 2nd King. Living Room has Queen Sleeper Sofa. Unit is Wheelchair Accessible, but not ADA compliant. We have Free Parking just steps from the condo. No hassle with having to go up flights and flights of stairs, or walk to the back of the building to take the elevators.

Most people picture in their minds their “Dream” Vacation condo, right on a sandy beach with spectacular views and magnificent sunrises and sunsets. They could swim in front, or take a walk on miles of pristine, un-crowded beach. My 1,050 sq. ft. Direct Beachfront, Ground Floor, Corner Condo could be what you're dreaming of. With so many to choose from, this is my chance to tell you what I think sets mine apart from the others.

Not many condos are this close to a sandy beach. In summer you can swim or snorkel right in front. In winter, watch the Whales from the lanai, out in Maalaea Bay. When you walk in and see the view of the ocean from the living room, you will be delighted. When you go outside, the spectacular 180-degree views of Maui's entire south coast will take your breath away. Every morning, you can watch the sun come up over Haleakala. It is truly, an indescribable experience.

The previous owner was in a wheelchair. He was allowed to enlarge the doorways and the master shower. They are wider than normal. He was given permission to enlarge the lanai to accommodate his wheelchair, plus tables and chairs. It's twice the size of the others. Being on a corner, it extends beyond the normal lanais, increasing our views even further. It has two tables and six chairs instead of the normal four. With a larger group, everyone can be together. It is the only lanai that accommodates the large comfy lounges.

You can walk right from the lanai to the sand in only 15 steps. Our condo only faces the beach, miles of ocean, Maui’s south coast, Haleakala and the island of Lanai. Surprisingly, some units don't have air conditioning. The unit directly above our condo. During the warmer months (May through October) Maui gets into the 80’s and 90’s (August & September), the humidity can be at 90%. You really need air conditioning. Our condo has air, six cooling ceiling fans and a dehumidifier to remove moister from the air.

The Kanai A Nalu has been rated the best vacation property in Maalaea. On a quiet cul-de-sac there is very little traffic. Our complex is one of three in Maalaea that is on the beach. The other seven are on a rocky reef. Many have distant parking lots and half have coin $$ operated laundry rooms. Two are next to the busy Maalaea Harbor, with its traffic, boat engine noise and fumes.

Our condo has its own in-unit washer and dryer, air conditioning, is on beautiful tropical grounds with 4 BBQ's, one of the few heated pools, and a beach side shower. It’s directly on 4 miles of beach that runs parallel to a protected wildlife refuge. On a morning walk you may not run into another person. This is the most un-crowded beach on Maui. It's like your own private paradise.

Many condos have an upstairs 'loft' bedroom, or a bedroom that is completely open to the living room and only closes with a flimsy folding wall. These offer no privacy or insulation from the noise of other guests. Our bedrooms are “traditional” rooms with solid walls and locking doors. In the master is a $2,600 “Select Comfort” King bed. Each side can be individually set to the desired firmness or softness of each guest. Two twin beds with pillow top mattresses in the second bedroom can be pushed together to create another king bed. Both bedrooms have ceiling fans and Cable TV. There is a queen sleeper sofa in the living room. The condo comfortably sleeps six adults, plus small children (we have a crib).

Our Corner Condo is nothing like the 'interior' units that share two common walls. They have only one window in their master, and their second bedroom window opens to the back facing either a busy walkway, allowing strangers to look in or the noisy parking lot.

Our Corner Condo has NO NEIGHBORS ON ONE SIDE. It is quieter, more private and has incredible views of the beach from the front corner, master bedroom's wall-to-wall windows. Our second bedroom has views of the ocean, the tropical grounds and the pool.

The master bath has a walk-in, over-sized, tiled shower. It has both a hand held and wall mounted shower head. The other bathroom has a full size tub, sliding doors and a shower above. Both bathrooms have cooling ceiling fans, designer accessories and wall mounted hair dryers.

You also have a view of the ocean from the updated kitchen. It has everything. Full size stove, side-by-side fridge, ice maker, dishwasher, microwave, toaster, toaster oven, blenders, coffee maker, cookware, utensils, silverware, dishes, an iron and ironing board, dishtowels and a washer and dryer.

Please compare my condo's rate to the other direct beachfront units. I am very competitive. There are many inexpensive units available. Please look at their photos carefully. Ocean Front, does not mean Beach Front. Some units are over 200 feet from the beach, at the back of the complex. Except for the direct beach front units (that face the sand), the condos in our ”U” shaped complex face each other. People are across from each other hanging out on the lanai and looking into all the other units. Not much privacy. On some of the ground floor units they have so many plants growing around their lanai and windows, there’s not much of a view. Our condo with its corner, ground floor, direct beach front location has a double lanai with fantastic views all the way from Wailea to the Harbor.

Condo's Hawaii Tax ID# W00167621-01. We rent out our own condo, but have an on island Maui Property Manager. Once you are at the condo, they will assist you with any problems or needs.

For questions, please send an email or call 916-988-1678 (Northern California, USA).

You can roll off the lanai which is level with the grass and roll right out, overlooking the beach. Some units say they are wheelchair accessible. Ask for photos of the entrance to the bathroom and shower to make sure a chair will make it. Also is their lanai level with the lawn for easy access to the lawn and overlooking the beach? Some are 5" off the grown. Shame on the units who claim to be accessible and are not. ...moreless

You can see the interior of the condo, and the beach out front.

The Kanai A Nalu is one of only three complexes in Maalaea that is directly on the beach. The others 7 buildings are on a rocky reef (no swimming). Half use coin $$ operated laundry (sit and wait), two are next to the busy Harbor with boat engine noise and fumes, some have distant parking lots (carry the bags) and one doesn't have a pool. Kanai A Nalu is rated the best property in Maalaea. Almost at the end of a cul-de-sac, there is little traffic. Free parking is steps away. It has Tropical Grounds, Lush Lawns, A Heated Pool, Lounges and a Beachside shower. Our beach runs parallel to a Protected Wildlife Refuge. Endangered Turtles lay their eggs here. No development is allowed along this beach. It runs five miles, to Kihei. On an early morning walk you may not see another person. Explore tide pools. It's like your own private paradise and the most uncrowded beach on Maui. If you want crowds go to Lahaina, Wailea or Kihei.

Other Activities: Swim, snorkel or boogie board at our beach, just in front of the condo.

The condo is only 12 minutes from the airport.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: I grew up in Southern California. From the time I was a small child, we camped on the beach (in tents) and later in trailers. I loved the beach. As an adult, I visited the Hawaiian Islands. I decided I had to one day own a beach front condo. I searched for years for just the right property. This is my piece of Paradise.

Why the Owner Chose Maalaea:
When this condo came on the market I begged, borrowed and talked my grown children into buying it with me. It didn’t take much to convince them. All they had to do was watch a Virtual Tour and they were hooked. After the purchase, we spent more money remodeling and decorating. I keep the relaxed but elegant tropical feel of the condo because that was what we fell in love with. This is a wonderful, relaxing, and inspiring place!! A place where I can walk out , taking approximately 15 steps, and be on a beautiful, Maui beach. Feeling the warm soft sand squeeze between my toes. I can sit on the lanai and have views of the Maui coastline that goes on for miles, or I can watch the waves dance along the sand while my grandchild plays just a few feet away. It’s the Hawaii experience I say in the movies. The experience I dreamed about. This is our little piece of Paradise. And we would like to share it with you.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Why we love this place so much. It is quiet, elegantly comfortable, romantic (even with kids along) and you will never forget the magnificent views of the beach from the direct-ocean-front location. This condo is closer to a sandy beach then any other condo in the building. Actually, it's closer to a sandy beach then any condo in any of the other buildings on Ma’alaea Bay. There may be condos that are closer to the water (with a rocky no-beach shoreline) but none are closer to a beautiful white sands beach that you can walk on or swim in. Why do I know this? I have been coming to Maalaea Bay for over 19 years and have stayed at five of the ten different properties located here. I consider myself to be a very “hard to please” person. I have always looked for a beautiful condo, right on the beach. Most of the ads said their condo was on the 'beach'. The photos all showed a beach in the background but from the angle of the shot I could never tell how close it really was. Unfortunately, I found out after I arrived that usually, there was no beach, only a rugged rocky shoreline. I would actually have to walk a long ways to get to a sandy beach. It made me really scrutinize the ads very carefully.
