Hidden Gem: Oceanfront Secluded Two Suite No Smoking Condo In Maalaea

Bedrooms 2
Space 890 sq ft
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 5 nights


About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 5)

Ma'alaea is Maui's hidden gem. Less than 75 feet from the ocean, this is the perfect condo for people who want a quiet, sedate location. Only steps to a small rarely busy beach or less than a half mile to famous Sugar Beach, a seven mile beach. This complex is somewhat removed from the intense tourist areas, but within easy driving distance of everything. This unit is perfect for two couples as both bedrooms are suites. One bedroom has a king size bed with the other bedroom having a queen size Murphy bed. Should you need more sleeping accommodations the sofa sleeper is also queen size. Listen to the surf as it beckons you to enjoy your day or lull you to sleep.

Breathtaking panoramic views of Maalaea Bay, Haleakala, the twinkling lights from Kihei at night and spectacular sunrises make this an ideal location. Views of Kahoolawe and Molokini in the the background gives the impression that this property is situated on a giant lake not in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. Enjoy these spectacular views including watching Humpback whales during the season December - March, right from the comfort of the lanai.

This clean, well maintained unit is stocked with things you may have forgotten to pack. This was the owners home for eight years and shows pride of ownership. The granite kitchen counters are incomparable. Jacuzzi tub in front suite bath with shower, higher toilets, glass vessel sinks and walk in shower in ocean side suite are a few of the amazing features. Floors are slate, porcelain and travertine. Tropical style ceiling fans and furnishings are throughout the unit with gentle breezes from tradewinds making air conditioning unnecessary, though available.

The complex features lush tropical grounds with a solar heated swimming pool - 82 degrees year round. In addition there are two large BBQ's and ample poolside/oceanside tables, chairs and lounges.

Free assigned parking, free wi-fi plus basic cable on a 55" Smart TV in the living room and a 40” Smart TV in the Oceanside bedroom. A fully equipped kitchen with new stainless steel top of the line appliances featuring a warming drawer in the range, French door refrigerator with generous ice maker, dishwasher and microwave. Additional appliances include toaster, coffee maker, electric grill, Galloping Gourmet air cooker and electric hot water pot. The oven is kept in the “locked” position as it is very easy to turn the warming drawer on. To unlock touch for 3-5 seconds where it indicates on the glass selection plate. Hair dryers are in each bathroom. The lanai is screened in but can easily be opened. Laundry facilities are located within the complex on each of the four floors with detergent, fabric softener and change machine on the first floor located just steps away from this unit; each load is $1.50 for wash or dry.

Only a few steps to Maalaea Harbor for fishing, snorkeling or SCUBA adventures plus Maui Ocean Center (aquarium). Restaurants and various shops just steps to the harbor. Right next door is Tradewinds Deli and Mini Mart. This property is very quiet for a relaxing and restful vacation or as your getaway stop as you explore the beautiful island of Maui. If you are enjoying a whale watching or snorkeling boat excursion while on Maui, we highly recommend the Pride of Maui (808) 242-0955, located just steps away.

An email will be sent 15 days prior to arrival with every detail you will need for access to the condo along with many details of parking, WiFi codes etc.

About Diana and Paul Reynolds

We are retired veterans. Paul served five years in the Air Force and Diana retired after 32 years service with the Coast Guard. We have been married 28 years and live on Maui full time. We have four kids, 13 grand kids and 2 great grandsons. Paul is a diver, paddles with Maui Canoe Club and handyman. Diana is a quilter. We lived in the condo until recently when we purchased a house living only six miles from the condo. We are available for tips on excursions, beaches, restaurants and in general things to do on island. Feel for to contact us for anything. We hope you enjoy our condo especially that awesome view, as much as we enjoyed living there.

Diana and Paul Reynolds purchased this condo in 2005

Why Diana and Paul Reynolds chose Wailuku

I lived on Maui n the 1960's and fell in love with it so we always vacationed here. In 2004 we bought a condo in Kihei but I wanted one right on the ocean. This unit became available the following year therefore, we could not pass it up. We were full time RVers and not quite ready to stop that so we bought it and leased it for four years. We moved into then condo in September 2009. All remodeling except the tile work was done by my husband, who is a true artisan. I love what he accomplished and so has everyone who has seen the condo. I love that it is off the beaten path away from most touristy things but centerally located to almost everything Maui has to offer. Maalaea is truly a hidden gem.

What makes this condo unique

The views from 75% of the unit is absolutel stunning from sunrise to sunset. During whale watching season you can watch from the comfort of the lanai but should you want to take a whale watching cruise it is only steps away. The Maui Ocean Center is less than a block away as are four restaurants, ice cream shop, souvenir shop, tee shirts shop, jewelry store and a new state of the art gym. One block further (all walking distance) is Maui Golf and Sports Park for great fun. The beginning of Sugar Beach is at the end of Hauoli Street (where condo is located) and runs seven miles. Maui Canoe Club offers a paddling experience nearby on North Kihei Road. Be there at 6:45 am. M-F. First paddle is $20, second and third are $10 and the fourth paddle is free. Lessons included. This is a friendly area with a pool and great BBQ/eating area. I particularly loved that Hauoli is not a through street and only a half mile long. It is a great even walk from one end to the other and is rather quiet. A short distance to Honoapiilani Highway and you are off to Lahaina, Kaanapali or the other direction to Paia, Haiku, Haleakala, Hana, Ulupalakua or any of numerous beaches. Contact us for those memorable locations not necessarily mentioned in guide books.

Nice condo at a great location

  • 5 of 5

This condo has been nicely updated with some higher end items. The location on the lower level is perfect-no need for elevator and right next to the pool area. (But not too close) We've stayed in the complex next door and was not near as pleased. Walking distance to a few restaurants, stores and the aquarium. Perfect for 2 to 4 people. I wouldn't want to put 6 adults here.

Owner's Response: We certainly are pleased that you enjoyed your vacation with us. We agree that it would be tight quarters for six adults. We primarily designed this unit with two couples in mind with a sofa sleeper for children sharing their parents bathroom. Thank you for selecting HappyStreetCondo and we sincerely hope you stay with us again on a future Maui vacation.

This unit is lovely; well located, and the owners are a dream to deal with. There was coffee available for us; the location is in a relatively quiet area where we were able to watch whales, dolphins, and turtles in the bay just outside our lanai. The unit is comfortably furnished. We stayed in the 2nd bedroom, and the only problem we had was that there is no door separating bath from bedroom. We've been married 47 years but still want privacy sometimes. Diana and Paul are wonderful hosts and we couldn't have asked for better accommodations on Maui.

Owner's Response: Thank you for a lovely review. You were great guest and are welcome to come back any time. A curtain was available in lieu of an actual door between the bedroom and bathroom and it is not possible to install a door due to the walls configuration. We hope that didn’t make you to uncomfortable. We are very pleased that you enjoyed our wonderful location and view. Mahalo and aloha, Paul and Diana Reynolds

Wonderful location, beautiful view!!! Absolutely loved our stay

  • 5 of 5

My new bride and I stayed here for our honeymoon, and we absolutely loved it. The complex is quiet, it's in a great location in the middle of the island, and of course, the weather was great every day. And we loved the view out to the harbor and bay, especially since we could see the whales. Everything was well kept and well supplied. We're recommending our friends and families to come to Maui, and will recommend this condo as a great option.

Gem indeed! Memories treasured forever!

  • 5 of 5

One beautiful discovery after another! This place has been completely renovated. Nothing has been overlooked, from bathrooms to floors. We had our own beautiful suite. The kitchen with new counters and appliances, is open to the living room and lanai. The ocean is inviting you to enjoy life! The owners were welcoming and, more than accommodating! Having dinner on the lanai was relaxing and rejuvenating at the same time. A treasured memory! We walked to the Maui Ocean center, and of course, walked down the coastline onto the endless beach. Saw turtles feeding just feet away in the ocean. And whales breaching in the ocean, purely lucky, as it was past their season. Just a few stragglers before heading north for the summer. The location here is great! Out of the way, but still central to most destinations on Maui. Bit of a drive to our other favorite area, Upcountry! Love staying on the ocean and driving to Makawao for a day visit! Also enjoyed the submarine ride in Lahaina! Piiholo Ranch is great for zip lining or horseback riding.
