About the property

Aloha! Our condo is a 1 BR/1 BA quiet end unit with an amazing ocean view! The kitchen was remodeled in 2015 complete with new appliances, including a new washer and dryer. The bedroom has a queen bed, dresser and large closet. The living room has a queen sofa bed. Linens and towels are provided and the kitchen is equipped to make your stay as worry free as possible. The bedroom and living room have ceiling fans and there is A/C in case the trade winds don’t keep you cool enough. In the living room you will find a HD television with Direct TV, a dvd player, a stereo, a printer, as well as a collection of books and games if you’re looking to unplug. There are also boogie boards, snorkel gear, beach toys and a beach chair available for your use in the bedroom closet. You can watch amazing sunrises over Haleakala (10,023 foot dormant volcano) and sublime sunsets while gazing at Molokini and Lanai all from the comfort of your lanai.

Ma'alaea Banyans is an ocean front property that features beach access, two outdoor grills, a swimming pool and is the only property in Ma'alaea with a jacuzzi! Haycraft Park and Sugar Beach are just a 1/4 mile walk down the street. Sugar Beach is one of the longest beaches on Maui, stretching 2.5 miles to North Kihei. You can stay right in Ma’alaea to enjoy a variety of activities; swimming, snorkeling, body surfing, boogie boarding, surfing, paddle boarding, kayaking, fishing or just watch the green sea turtles all along the shore or spy whales breaching (late Nov - Apr).

Ma'alaea Harbor is less than 1/2 mile away and features yummy restaurants, shops, the Maui Ocean Center and Maui Golf & Sports Park (putt putt, rock climbing wall, x-treme trampoline and bumper boats). The harbor is also a launching point for boats going to Molokini for snorkeling, on dinner cruises, or whale watching.

Ma'alaea is nestled in between Lahaina and Kihei and is about 10 miles from the Kahului airport. This central location is ideal if you plan to venture out to experience more of what Maui has to offer. Travel the famous Road to Hana (7 Sacred Pools), ascend through upcountry to the top of Haleakala, explore Paia (and Ho'okipa Lookout), Ka'anapali (Black Rock), Lahaina (Banyan Tree), Kihei (Kamaole Beach Parks), Wailea as well as Makena State Park (Big Beach), and Ioa Valley State Park. There are a plethora of fabulous hikes and endless adventures. Have fun!

Come and see for yourself why Maui is No Ka Oi (is the best)!

About Ron Benjamin

Laura and I were married just down the street from Ma'alaea Banyans on Sugar Beach in May 2003. We currently reside in northern California and continue to relish the time we get to spend on Maui.

Ron Benjamin purchased this condo in 2001

Why Ron Benjamin chose Wailuku

I have been visiting Ma'alaea Banyans since I was young. When the opportunity arose to purchase a condo at Ma'alaea Banyans, I jumped at the chance.

What makes this condo unique

My wife and I have been blessed to revisit the location of our wedding each year. And now we get to share our love of Maui with our children! We hope you also enjoy your Maui visit. Please let us know how we can improve your experience.

Nice view with amenities included.

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyable stay. Unit is located at the end of the building so it was very quiet. Gorgeous view of the bay. Had everything we needed for a home away from home. Didn't cook any meals but the microwave was great for reheating leftovers. Loved that there's a washer and dryer; however the dryer does vent warm air into the room -- that's why the AC is a must. Note: the hairdryer is located in the long horizontal drawer under the bathroom sink -- didn't realize it was an actual drawer.

Communication with owner Ron Benjamin was superior. He was really good about replying quickly to my emails. Here's one funky occurrence. Came home one night when it was super windy out. None of the keys would unlock the door. The on-site maintenance man came up and was able to open it for us. The wind had created a vacuum in the room, which affected the lock. I think he either pulled or pushed on the door while turning the key, which made the lock open.

Purchased 6 refreezable ice blocks at Target for the cooler. Brought the cooler with us every day; was glad to have it.'s a great unit and a nice place to stay. Would definitely stay there again.

Great location and comfortable!

  • 4 of 5

We absolutely loved the setting and location of this Condo. It had a great view of the ocean, with well kept grounds, pool, and barbecue area. It’s very close to available charters for snorkeling, Whale watching and fishing. We had a Change in our trip with a surprise visit from our son in law and daughter and Ron the property owner was very accommodating to the adjustment in our vacation plans. Very enjoyable and relaxing place.

Great location for a low-key vacation

  • 4 of 5

It was just right for three of us looking for a home base while we explored Maui. The location was out-of-the-way enough to feel like we weren't in a hoard of tourists, but we were close enough to everything we wanted to visit.
