  • Thank you

    "I brought my wife to stay at your condo at the end of the summer, and boy were we impressed. Everything in the condo, from the furniture to the bed was in excellent shape. We go on vacation often to condos often that are gross, miss sold, and almost in a state of decay. Not here. A super clean rental that had everything we needed. You can't beat having the ocean so close, and I think we BBQ'd almost every night. I just wish we could have stayed another week."

  • Perfect Location!

    "This condo is perfectly located and is very clean and well maintained and has everything you could possibly need. It was very easy to get to from the airport. Barbara left us Banana Bread, coffee, pineapple, jelly and creamer whichh was perfect for that first breakfast on the lanai. We had fun watching the turles right out front of the condo and there is a quiet beach very close by. There is lots of brochures in the condo and lobby which made planning our sight seeing so much easier. Barbara also gave us information ahead of time which was very much appreciated. We definitely hope to go back. Mahalo!"

  • Nice, comfortable and centrally located

    "This unit is in Island Sands condos in Maalaea, which is a tiny harbor near Kihei. The location is perfect. 4 miles from Kihei, 20 min. from Kahalui (airport, Costco, WalMart, etc.). It is the windiest part of the the whole island so if winds are already high island-wide, they are super high in Maalaea. The Maui Ocean Center is there and great for kids. My grandkids (8 and 11) were talking about things they learned for days after. The pool is small but doable. The complex is next to Sugar Beach, a 7 mi. stretch that's great for walking. The park at the end of the street holds the best beach swimming area. The unit was very comfortable. One negative is there seems to be too much furniture in places, making it crowded (entry way). But the hardwood floors are so much better than carpet for beach people. You do need a car when staying here."

  • Fully outfitted condo!

    "We have stayed at the condo for 2 weeks with 2 kids, ages 4 and 9. We made it our base and explored the island from there. It is a fantastic place, centrally located, not overrun by tourist and steps from the ocean. I could not believe how well it was outfitted - from a cooler to wine glasses, to dish soap, and plastic containers, BBQ tools, snorkelling gear, boogie boards, high quality towels and many, many, many more. It is a lovely place, but be worn - gets very windy and at times loud. First couple of nights there was a storm approaching so the wind was very loud. After that past, all got much better. We loved walking down to the water and watching turtles ( seen over 20 at one time!). There is a larger beach just 5 min walk down the street ( west). Harbour right there - we took snorkelling trips from there, it was very helpful, since departure time is 7 am and we only had to drive 2 min. Could have easily walked, but with small kids that was easier. Over all, we already looking at our budget and hoping to go back to beautiful Maui and would stay at this condo again. Thank you Larry and Mary! Mahalo!"

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.
