Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Quiet, romantic, tropical Kana'i A Nalu, at the north end of Ma'alaea Bay in South Maui, provides a unique setting for your Hawaiian vacation. Our privately owned two bedroom two bath beachfront 'home away from home' is a corner unit on the second floor of a 4 story building at water's edge. Our private lanai, 30 feet from the ocean, looks across white sand beach and ocean to neighboring Islands and 10,000 foot Haleakala. It provides the perfect winter viewing spot to watch, up close and personal, the mother hump back whales train their young for their long trip back to the Northern Pacific

In November 2016 new granite counter tops were installed in the kitchen and both bathrooms. Also new tile in the master shower. New sinks and faucets with all that. New ceiling fans and lights. All so new that just a few new images posted!

Enjoy all the benefits of a corner unit on the second floor: the added security of not being at ground level, the privacy of having bedroom windows looking out on the beautiful courtyard, pool and ocean instead of sidewalk and parking lot and the absence of foot traffic past your private lanai.

All prices are in US Dollars.

The master bedroom has a comfortable cal king-size bed with a private bath and wall to wall windows with full view of beach, courtyard and pool. The second bedroom, with a view of the pool, courtyard and ocean, has twin beds that can be made up as a king. A second bathroom is across a small alcove. A queen-size sleeper couch in the living room can accommodate up to 2 additional guests. The tropical furnishing throughout and the well stocked full kitchen and generous supply of beach gear will make your vacation one of easy comfort. Our private lanai gives us much pleasure - reading, eating, whale watching or just plain relaxing to the sound of the gentle surf. Our Green Sea Turtles are seen 10 to 15 feet offshore and the reef just off our beach delights the snorkelers. The beach in front of our condo continues to the north end of Kihei as part of the Kealia Nature Preserve: this translates to no development, no traffic and no problems - just 4 miles of empty white sand beach.

There is WiFi in the condo.

A five to ten minute walk from our condo presents a wide variety of activities: snorkel and sunset cruises from the marina, a world class aquarium, miniature golf park and bumper boats, a small shopping area and many different restaurants. The eating choices range from the various restaurants through other excellent, less pricey eateries to Carl's Jr and a Deli/convenience store.

We provide the best of both worlds on Maui. If you are running away from work, snow and cold, or responsibilities in general, our laid back remnant of 'Old Maui' will have you relaxed in no time. If you want activity and want to see the Island, you are 15 minutes from the airport, 20 minutes from the North Shore, Lahaina, Kihei and Wailea, and 5 miles or less from 4 golf courses. When you are overwhelmed with all the activities available on the Island, trade the traffic and heavily populated tourist areas for the quiet serenity of Ma'alaea; dig your toes into the white sand beach in front of your own private lanai and unwind to the sound of the surf and the trade winds blowing thru palm fronds.

We Welcome You to Our Paradise Found!

About Lena Andersson W01149170-01

We are Don, a retired airline pilot, who grew up in Chicago and Arizona: and Colleen, a retired interior designer, from Alberta and British Columbia, Canada.

Lena Andersson W01149170-01 purchased this condo in 1998

Why Lena Andersson W01149170-01 chose Wailuku

It was love at first sight. We had stayed for several years up in Kaanapali back in the early '70s and found it too crowded, too congested - even then. Now it was 1998 and we were giving Maui another try, staying up the street, before the beach starts. We walked through the grounds at Kana'i A Nalu and we were hooked. Still feel the same 17 years later.

What makes this condo unique

Relaxed Island living with a great view of the islands, beach and ocean. Love watching the whales come back every year - they are in so close we can watch the mothers teaching the babies. Enjoy the friendships developed over the years with the other owners and the many renters that return year after year.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your condo was perfect for us – so much more space than a hotel (the teens having their own bathroom was a blessing!!).

A great central location to explore the island and with such a fantastic view – we ate many meals on the balcony and made good use of the BBQ. Good surf right off the beach and even saw turtles several times. We enjoyed snorkeling at Molokini (went with the small Red Boat tours which I would highly recommend as we got to snorkel the drop as well). Did the bike ride down Haleakala, walked some of the ridge trails, hired SUPs and surfboards, drove around both volcanoes – loved some of the beaches by Hana.

The kids went paragliding which was a real treat captured on GoPro. Enjoyed a food tour of Lahaina and the more quirky fun scene of Paia. And tried the Maui Brewing Cos beers too.

So loads of photos and many fond memories.

Beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5

My family totally enjoyed this condo with a beautiful view. The beach and/or pool area was never overly populated. There is a great patio area with state of the art grills and the place comes equipped with things you won't need to pack (i.e. beach towels, cooler, pool toys, etc). The owners were wonderful to work with. We can't wait to go back! Pam

Guestbook Comment

  • 5 of 5

This is the 2nd time we stayed at Don and Colleen's condo. This latest time was 8/5/07 through 8/21/07. They have a very nice condo, great for a family. I love the location and that is an end unit. Master looks over the beach and pool, 2nd looks over the pool. No issues with not wanting to leave a window open in the 2nd bedroom since a lot of the time the second bedrooms face a walkway. Lanai looks directly onto the beach (35 ft). No A/C, but it is not needed with the tradewinds that come through the valley and through Maalaea. Nice central location 20-25 minutes to Lahina, 10 minutes to central Kihei, 10 minutes to Kahalui. Like not being in the middle of a "city", sugarcane field behind complex. A little market within walking distance up the street for the emergency milk or small needs. I like the tile floor throughout the unit, so much easier to see that it is clean than carpet. We usually had breakfast at the condo, 75 / 25 on dinner, using the BBQ's out by the pool is very nice setting (they have gas a charcoal). Had no problems with anything, a non issue which is how it is supposed to work.

Wonderful view

  • 5 of 5

The condo was clean and well-appointed, but the most outstanding thing is the view. It's right on Maalaea Bay. You get to see every whale and turtle out there right from the lanai. It's also close to the beach and easy to park nearby.

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you saw all those wonderful animals and right from the lanai. You just can't beat that. And I know you liked the condo and area so much you already booked for next year. Thank you so much.

Gorgeous Views!

  • 5 of 5

Great location, this condo has all the amenities we needed to have a great vacation. The kitchen is well stocked with utensils and cookware, the owners have thoughtfully provided a cooler and beach chairs, and the beds are super comfortable. We're dreaming of the day we can go back to this condo and enjoy the incredible ocean and mountain views from the lanai.

Great Condo and Location

Beautiful beach front. Enjoyed the lanai and sunrise every morning. The condo is well stocked from the kitchen to the closet full of beach toys, umbrellas and chairs.
