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.

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.

So sad to leave!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your condo, and hopefully we will be back! Not only was it a clean, comfortable place to stay, but you really anticipated any need we might have - from snorkel gear to beach towels and beach chairs. Our mornings began with coffee and breakfast on the lanai as we watched the sun slowly light up the palm trees and change the colors of the ocean. After a day of sightseeing activities, it was heaven to come back to the quiet condo for a swim in the ocean and the pool. The sound of the waves crashing lulled us to sleep each night. Maui was fabulous and a good part of it was due to these accommodations. Thanks - Judy & Ron

Maui vacation

  • 4 of 5

Very clean, bug free, and cozy. If you are a large person this condo will not work for you. I was glad the garage door was broken because it was hard enough to get in and out of without having to wait for the garage door to go up and down. Blind entrance and exit with big dip. Beach was private as well as the pool, but the birds and outrigger groups had you up before daylight every morning. The location was central to all areas for sightseeing and it felt like a safe area. Awesome sunrise from front door but the sun sets behind the mountain on the beach if you want to see the gorgeous Maui sunset, drive to Lahaina and you can catch it from anywhere along Front Street. Frank and Sandy have provided all the necessities you will need as well as the wonderful welcome basket full of goodies.

Perfect romantic Maui getaway

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for a nice place to stay on Maui that's close to everything but far from the crowds, look no further. We stayed here for a week to celebrate our 10-year anniversary and it was perfect. The condo was clean, comfy, nicely decorated, and well stocked with just about everything we needed. The view from the lanai was gorgeous; we enjoyed sitting out there for our morning coffee or for an evening meal after a long day of sightseeing and activities. The condo was just steps away from the beach; the scenery from the beach is breathtaking and there were very few people, so it felt nice and private. The condo is centrally located to everything; Kihei is just minutes away with lots of restaurants (we loved Kihei Caffe, Eskimo Candy, and Ono Gelato), shops, and supermarkets. There is an ABC Store right around the corner with a farmer's market, Ululani's Shaved Ice, and a bakery right next door which was very convenient. Kahului Airport and Iao Valley are about 15-20 minutes away and Lahaina is about 30 minutes away. It was also not far from Haleakala Crater and the Road to Hana, both of which we enjoyed and highly recommend. Booking the condo was easy; Frank and Sandy were easy to work with and very responsive to our e-mails. We never had to call them while we were there as everything was perfect, but it's obvious they take good care of the place. The welcome basket of goodies (Hawaiian coffee, wine, cookies, chocolates, etc) was a nice touch. We would definitely stay here again and recommend this place to others. MAHALO, Frank and Stacy, for your hospitality!

Great place to stay in Maui

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time ever to use VRBO and I was a little nervous about what I would find. Frank and Sandy were very easy to work with and eased my worries. It was an added surprise to have the nice welcome basket waiting on us after our long flight. The condo was perfect for us and our 5 night stay on Maui. It was in a great location (no other condos to the north made for great beach walks and sunsets). It was very clean and nicely decorated. And we had everything we needed (beach towels and tote, cooler, etc.). The ocean views were great and the grounds were very well kept too. NormaGene was very helpful. We enjoyed snorkeling on several beaches to the south, the Road to Hana, a luau in Lahaina, and sunrise at "the crater"- all within easy driving distance of the condo. We found several dining options near by, especially at the harbor at Maalea. If we return, we would love to stay in this condo again and will definitely recommend it to others. It was difficult to leave this little slice of paradise. Thanks so much for a great stay and amazing memories!
