Recent Maalaea reviews

  • Great introduction to Maui!

    "We (two late 60's couples) visited Maui for the first time and chose this property for our stay because of the stellar reviews. We were certainly not disappointed. From time of booking last year throughout our stay, Jade was in frequent contact and was exceptionally communicative. A new lock was installed on the door just before our arrival, and Jade's detailed instructions made our entry easy. Everything from the sweet gift bag to the updated décor was a pleasant welcome. This 2 bedroom/2 bath unit is about 1000 square feet and is very well maintained, furnished, and decorated. Its location in the complex offers a wonderful view (complete with sound) of the ocean and the start of a long sandy beach. October, 2014 has been hot in the Hawaiian Islands, so we were very grateful for the air conditioning unit in the living room - it cooled the entire space enough that we all slept comfortably. We heard our neighbors only once in the 6 nights we stayed, and only briefly as apparently a piece of furniture was dragged across the floor of the unit above us. Maalaea Bay is quiet, as is this complex, but that's what we wanted. Friendly folks in town, good access to the rest of the island, well-stocked condo all combined to make our holiday memorable. We highly recommend this property."

  • Awesome view and sounds

    "We arrived to paradise to a warm condo, ocean sounds and a beautiful enviroment. right from the start of the booking process to the last day of our stay the owners Corinne and Keith were awesome to deal with. My husband and I went with our 2 sons ages 13 and 10 and they really enjoyed having the pool just steps away. My husband enjoyed the short distance to the beach and I really enjoyed going to sleep and waking up to the soothing sounds of the ocean crashing into the shoreline. We were a short walk to the Beach Bums restaurant which was nice for either lunch or dinner. We got to see the tour boats sail out in the morning and return at night with the sunset. The view of the volcano across the way is breathtaking as well and what a sight. Thank you for sharing your little peice of paradise with us and we would definately stay there again. How can you go wrong with great owners, hot weather and beautiful scenery. Mahalo Sheri"

  • Pure Delight

    "My stay at this beautiful condo was four weeks and I must admit that it was better than my expectations. I have had several stays in condos and hotels in Hawaii of a month's duration, and none have been better than this one at Maalaea Kai. The view from the lanai is absolutely breathtaking with a wide panoramic section (180 deg.) of the ocean in the foreground and the backdrop for the view is the splendor of the slopes of Haleakala Volcanic Crater, home of Haleakala National Park. The grounds are lovely and in immaculate condition with a wonderful lawn (as though walking on a plush carpet).The condo is fully equipped with all the furnishings of a nice home. I especially enjoyed my sleep time on the very comfortable bed. The Bedroom has lots of closet space and enough hangers to accomodate more than three pieces of large luggage. Space is indeed plentiful. Two AC units (Fujitsu units), one for BR and one for LR, both with an individual remote. One can keep the condo comfortable at your desired temperature. If one opens the windows; there is always a breeze that will flow through the unit. On a few days the AC was not even used. The kitchen counters were tiled just before I moved in and are beautiful. The LR is spacious with a nice comfy sofa and a new Flat-screen TV, accompanied by more channels than I have ever had in eithr a condo or hotel. The locality of the condo is a preferred location, especially if one is planning to travel the island to places like Kihei, Haleakala, Hana, Kaanapali, Kahului, and the Airport. The condo is in a prime location for travel. No traffic to worry about around the condo; easy in and easy out. One of my favorite things to do each morning shortly after sunrise, was to walk outside on the front lawn and admire the ocean and mountains, then I would stroll about five minutes and then I would be at Maalaea Harbor. This is where many of the fishing boats and cruise boats have their home. This is a great opportunity for photographers to shoot some great shots; photography is my hobby. Lastly, but probably the most important, Richard, the owner. From my first contact with him to the last, he has been a joy to with whom to work. I find him to be a person of integrity, and who is honest and straightforward in all that he says. I am already excitingly looking forward to a return visit to this condo."

Maalaea Travel Tips

Enjoy Maalaea Vacation Rentals in Central Maui

Maalaea is a district located in Central Maui, which is six miles from Wailuku. You'll find Ma'alaea where Honoapi'ilani Highway, also known as Highway 30, meets the south coast. This prime location makes it a favorite hot spot for tourists. Tourists looking to emerge themselves in the culture and society of Maui often choose one of the Maalaea vacation rentals available on the island--allowing them the comforts of home surrounded by the locals.

The Comfort of Maalaea Vacation Rentals

Maalaea vacation rentals range from Central Maui beach rentals to Maalaea condos, so there is an accommodation to fit almost any need and taste in the area. Central Maui beach rentals offer guests direct access to the beach, sun, water activities and more. Most of the Central Maui beach rentals are Maalaea condos, with some running along Maalaea Bay. Other rental options include single-family homes, which offer you the chance to mingle with the locals and still find private respite in your home when the mingling is over.

Ma'alaea Beach Fun

One of the primary attractions for visitors is Ma'alaea Beach. Ma'alaea Beach is three miles long, stretching from Ma'alaea Harbor to Sugar Beach on the east. Visitors to the beach do not tend to flock Ma'alaea Beach for relaxing in the sand and sun. On the contrary, Ma'alaea Beach is known for high winds, which makes it a prime location for surfing the big waves and windsurfing. When you come in out of the sun (and the wind), you can enjoy a meal you've made in your full-equipped Maalaea vacation rental or take a nap in one of the private bedrooms. For nights when cooking isn't on the agenda, restaurants, cafes and shops are readily available. Buzz's Wharf Restaurant is a local favorite along with The Blue Marlin and Bamboo Bistro.
