Welcome to Paradise! Memories are made here!

Come, relax, unwind, and enjoy the unforgettable breathtaking, panoramic ocean views from EVERY room in our beautiful top floor direct oceanfront, beachfront Kealia Resort Condominium nestled RIGHT ON Sugar Beach, just steps from the ocean. This is NOT a side unit! Magnificent west facing view of the neighboring Hawaiian islands of Kahoolawe and Molokini Crater, a popular snorkling/diving spot, from the lanai of #603. Equally magnificent Haleakala crater view on front walkway.

Let the waves lull you to sleep every night. Feel the warm breezes and watch the swaying palms as you sip your favorite beverage or enjoy a bite to eat from your own private top floor lanai. In the winter watch the mother whales and calves frolicking and breaching. Let the sun's diamond reflections off the gentle Pacific waves mesmerize you as your body slides into total relaxation. Stroll along miles of sugar soft sand on Maui's longest walking beach. Mirrored walls envelop you with breath-taking ocean views. Kealia is the perfect quiet, private resort condominium for honeymooners, couples, seasoned travelers...anyone!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We thoroughly enjoyed our week in Maui. The kitchen was great and allowed us to cook our way with little muss or fuss. We appreciate the spices, condiments and lightweight dishes. The beach chairs, coolers and toys were a plus! We drove to Hana and stopped as many times as we could. Loved the hike at Oheo Gulch upto the Makahiku Falls. Another highlight was a whale watch with Pacific Whale Foundation. We enjoyed the swimmable beach right out front and the nice neighbors. Thanks for sharing your spot on Maui.

If you enjoy going to sleep with the sound of the waves, this is the perfect place for you. The view from the lanai is perfect and the condo is exactly as described with a lovely welcome basket. The owners are near and answer emails promptly. Very convenient for touring the Island, so many beautiful beaches. Hope to return one day. Thank you Sandy and Frank.

Sorry I can only give you five stars

Paradise Found is perfect for a couple who wants to have a nice quiet and peaceful trip to Maui. The condo is located in Kihei but its also the last one to the north, which means the beaches to the north are empty and great for nice walks. Do not get me wrong, the beaches to the south are just a secluded and nice, but there are more people and condos there.

The Condo is perfect, you have everything you need. Frank and Sandy have gone out of their way to provide their guests with everything. The kitchen is perfect and has just about everything you need to prepare meals (you have to provide your own food, but it saves you so much money and Costco, Walmart, and Target are 15 minutes away). They also give you their Safeway cards so you can get discounts there and its less than 5 minutes away. The bed is very comfortable. Ceiling fans in the living room, bedroom and bathroom help keep the condo cool, but its also on the top floor and with the windows open, you have a constant breeze. We never had to use the AC. The lanai is great, no you can't see the Maui sunset from it, but take the elevator down to the beach (less than 2 minutes) and you have the best view of the sunset and the resort provides chairs and lounges if you want to sit back there, enjoy a drink and watch the most beautiful sunset you will ever see. Back to the lanai, you do have a great view of the ocean and beach and a comfortable table and chairs where we ate breakfast, lunch and dinners.

I probably should not say all these great things because now we will have a hard time finding reservations for our future trips there, but honestly I would rather know that I shared a great place than kept it all to myself. We will be back and already counting the days until we can. Mahalo Frank and Sandy.

PS: One last thing, if you walk down the beach (south) about 3/4 mile then cut in at the seawall, you have an awesome bakery, shave ice, and farmers market with some of the best fresh island fruit.

We have had great experiences using VRBO. Paradise Found is the fifth VRBO rental and the best experience of all. Frank and Sandy are wonderful to deal with. We had a terrible storm on departing day. Frank and Sandy communicated with us about possibly extending our stay if we were to experience a delay. Communication is prompt and easy.

We arrived to find a spotless unit with a welcome basket full of local goodies that we really enjoyed. We also received a honeymoon card and message. The unit is well appointed. We had access to snorkel gear (excellent quality), a great washer and dryer, and beach towels. The kitchen is very functional and well organized. We found it difficult to leave the unit to dine out. We cooked our own meals and enjoyed eating them in the breeze on the lanai. The view is magical.

There are a lot really nice things about the unit. Remote control fans and lights. Mood lighting everywhere. Little touches that are very special.

We really enjoyed our stay at Paradise Found. Although we plan to travel the world we expect to visit Sandy and Frank's unit again in the future. It's the best vacation spot on Maui.

Beautiful condo, perfectly appointed and great location!

  • 5 of 5

Frank and Sandy are marvelous hosts! They left nothing to be wanting in their lovely oceanfront condo. The complex is small which makes it very quiet. Being on the end of the beach next to a nature reserve also adds to the peacefulness of the location. The basement parking for the unit is great with access to the elevator just 20ish feet away making it easy to get everything to the unit. The condo itself is beyond perfect! My husband is a resort guy, so convincing him to stay in a condo was not easy. We both absolutely loved the condo. It is a perfect getaway, beautifully decorated and equipped with anything you might need. Frank and Sandy thought of everything from a well stocked kitchen to all the beach accessories you might need. Even the smallest details were accounted for including a pair of binoculars, charging stations, and books and cds to borrow. We also loved the location as far as seeing the rest of the island. This was our first time on Maui and we weren't quite sure where to stay, but this condo is situated in an area that allows quick travel to other parts of the island. Take a right in front of the condo and the next junction will take you either left into Kihei and down to Wailea or straight to the airport/Costco and eventually to the road to Hana. We cannot recommend both Maui and this condo highly enough, both made this an incredible trip that we will always treasure! Mahalo Frank and Sandy!
