Recent Central Maui reviews

  • Ideal location for beauty and convenience

    "We stayed at this unit in Kanai a Nalu for 5 days and loved it - this was our first time in Maui. The place had everything we needed in the kitchen and in terms of linens and towels, and arrangements for arrival through leaving were smooth. There is plenty of room too. It gets a nice breeze, especially using the front and back screen doors, and sitting on the lanai was nice. The pool was just perfect too, with a great view as you relaxed. The beach it's on is lovely - one you can go for long walks on. You see endless ocean, the sun, south Maui, and islands in the distance. There was a small reef which suprised us with a turtle feeding there one evening. The water had few waves and was perfect for swimming. The beach gets wind in the evening, which was refreshing. We were so close to the harbor and able to get a get a few things there as well as have a fun, reasonable dinner with great fish tacos and ribs. We were also in a great location for trips to Kihei for groceries, to Lahania for entertainment, and to many spots to enjoy the natural beauty - Iao Needle, Road to Hana, and snorkeling and beaches on the northwest and southwest coasts. There were no concerns, nothing to change - just perfect."

  • AWESOME Vacation!

    "Our stay at the Maalaea Kai condo was fabulous! The décor and amenities of the condo were exactly as listed. It is nicer in person than in pictures. We were also very happy with the location. It was centrally located to everything. I will definitely recommend the condo to friends and family and we definitely be back in the future."

  • Location, Grounds, Pool, Paradise!

    "Our family of four (mom, dad, girl 13, boy 11) spent 15 wonderful nights at this condo, and everything was just fantastic. So easy to get there from the airport, down a quiet dead-end street, with very little traffic. Lots of parking, and beautifully kept grounds greeted our arrival. A quick elevator ride and in the door, and we all stood at the lanai doors, taking in the postcard view. Stunning!! This condo has all the amenities desired for a short or long stay. It has a fully equipped kitchen, fridge with ice maker (a must!), wifi, and a huge TV. Twin beds for the kids, and their own bathroom. There is a supply of boogie boards, sand mats, beach toys, umbrellas, and tons of towels. The pool and barbecue area were always pristine, and a few steps farther and you are at the ocean. Ma'alaea Bay is a very calm, shallow beach, with hardly any undertow, and smaller waves, great for young children. As many reviewers have pointed out, the location of this condo is perfect, as it's a short drive to Lahaina, Kihei, Wailuku, or Kahului. We would pack up the cooler and head off to explore new beaches or take a road trip one day, then stay back at the condo and have the place to ourselves the next. The nearby marina hosts a variety of shops and restaurants, from fast food to a full meal deal (we recommend Buzz's Wharf, Beach Bums', and Porto Pizza), as well as the Pacific Whale Foundation and others for whale watching tours, snorkelling, and sunset cruises. The Maui Ocean Centre is also located here, and is well worth a tour. We took in the mini golf and bumper boats one lazy afternoon; the kids loved it!! We never needed any help from the condo manager, but he was always around the building through the week. Oscar the groundskeeper was always on the job, too, and you can tell he takes pride in his work. We had a storm one night with heavy rain and strong winds, which knocked down a lot of palm leaves, and by noon the next day, you would never have known it. Enes was a pleasure to deal with, and could always be reached via email or on the phone. I would not hesitate to stay here again if (who am I kidding - WHEN) we come back to Maui. Mahalo, eh!!"

  • Great Place!

    "I would recommend this condo to anyone who wants to be close to the ocean, have plenty of room by the pool and who likes to hear the sound of the ocean at night. The pictures on VRBO do not do this condo unit justice. The 2nd bathroom has an up-graded shower and the main living room area furniture has a nice reclining chair in addition to the large L shaped couch. We are a family of 4 with 2 teenage children and there was plenty of room for us. During our stay several other family friends stayed at Kania A Nala and it was a prefect set-up. The Kania A Nala is smaller than some of the larger condos and we liked that. It is a quick drive to Kihei (10 minutes to the Safeway) and only a 20 minutes to Lahaina. The restaurant "Beach Bums" is in the Maalaea harbor and we liked their live music and their pork tacos. The only "con" is that the beach space directly in front of the condo unit is relatively small. But if you walk a short distance down toward Kihei there is more beach space and easy boogie boarding area. We hope to get back to Maui and will definitely look into staying at this unit again."
