Looking for a spacious 2 bedroom unit with a sublime ocean view that's only 120 feet from the shoreline of a sandy beach? A king-size bed a must have? Look no further. Mort's Port (aka unit 310 Kanai A Nalu) awaits your arrival in beautiful Maalaea Harbor Village.
To see if we have dates open that would work for you, click on the Rates and Availability page. Only hit a button that says or means "Book Now" if you are ready to commit to the rental. Otherwise, "Ask Owner a Question" to get info to help you decide if Mort's Port is your best choice.
If you do book a stay in Mort's Port, this is what we can predict: You won't want to leave. Once you walk into this superb third floor unit in Kanai A Nalu, you'll understand why. The wall-to-wall glass that separates the living area from the lanai presents an astounding and expansive ocean view. The gentle trade winds, the swaying palms, and the sound of the waves will enchant you. If you have ever stayed in the more tourist-populated parts of the island, you will appreciate the relative seclusion and quiet nature of Maalaea.
Within walking distance are the shops and oceanview restaurants at Maalaea Harbor. You'll also find boats departing for snorkeling, diving, and whale watching adventures. The Maui Ocean Center, as impressive an aquarium as you'll find anywhere is also in the harbor area.
If you want to get in the water, you can go down to the sandy beach below the courtyard to swim, snorkel, or have fun with a boogie board. Of course, there is always the option to take a dip in the gated pool located in the center of the courtyard.
If you want to take a scenic walk (or run) along the shoreline, you can go for miles on Sugar Beach, which has just two oceanfront condo buildings beyond ours to the east. Then you're on a vast stretch of sand alongside the Kealia nature preserve, an area that will never be developed.
The condo complex is well constructed (concrete walls and ceilings) and well maintained. Our two bedrooms are real rooms with real doors, not lofts and not sliding screens. If you like your privacy, you will like staying in Mort's Port.
What you see when you walk in the front door (assuming the blinds have been rolled up) is breath-taking. Unlike the majority of oceanview units in our building that are on an angle and present a view of other units across the way, our straight-out view is your visual treat from almost anywhere inside, even the kitchen. While cooking you can look through the living and dining areas and see the ocean's swath of blue. You'll never forget that you are in Hawaii with this beautiful panorama.
When you can pry your eyes from the awesome views of the ocean and Mt. Haleakala (a dormant volcano), you'll notice that the grounds are so well landscaped and manicured that you might think you're in a botanical garden. Even the swimming pool is a visual delight with its tropical-flower-adorned waterfall continuously spilling fresh water down one side.
Just as impressive as what you see outside is what you will find inside the condo. The unit is tastefully decorated, featuring rattan living and dining furniture from the Kauai Collection. Throughout, you will find Hawaiian-themed artwork, mostly by local artists. Décor includes wood carvings, raku pottery, and prints of scenic paintings. (There are also several original-by-owner-Sue watercolors).
You will rejoice at your selection of this condo unit if any of the following are important to you: FAST, PASSWORD-PROTECTED FREE WIFI ; HD FLATSCREEN TVs with CABLE AND DVD PLAYERS; CD's and DVD's in unit; MINI-STEREO SYSTEM; LENDING LIBRARY (no late fees ever), PORTABLE PHONE with FREE LONG DISTANCE (U.S. and Canada); A/C; IN-UNIT SAFE; SPOTTING SCOPE and BINOC's; SNORKELING EQUIPMENT; BOOGIE BOARDS; BEACH CHAIRS and UMBRELLAS; WASHER/DRYER in unit; KINGSIZE BED in MBR; TWIN BEDS (King option) in 2nd BR.
Maybe not important to you now, but wait until you have settled into one of our two CUSHIONED RECLINER LOUNGE CHAIRS (both facing the TV, and one also facing the ocean). You may also find that our four CUSHIONED DINING CHAIRS ON WHEELS are more comfortable and fun to move around on than what you expected.
Recent upgrades: A NEW KEYLESS ENTRY system that makes arriving and leaving less challenging; BEAUTIFUL MAPLE CABINETS and PUCK LIGHTING in the kitchen; NEW WASHER/DRYER and NEW CARPETING. Also, NEW MASTER BEDROOM FURNITURE (but no new headboard--we're too fond of the hand-painted one you see in the photo).
Most likely it's not what's inside that you're going to remember for a long time after you leave. Instead, it's probably going to be the incredible views from the lanai and the strolls you took along the shoreline. Imprinted in your mind will be the panoramic scene from the 3rd floor: the lush greenery and tropical flowers in the foreground, the beautiful blue waters of the bay in the middle, and the majestic Haleakala in the background. All that framed by randomly stretching palm trees to complete the picture.
At night, it's just as impressive. The lights twinkling from Kihei across the bay vie for your attention with the stars more bright and more plentiful than you can imagine. You'll see. You really won't want to leave.
