Overview

About the property

1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, sleeps 2

Dream your most desired vacation. Then come to magical Maui, one of the world’s most elite vacation destinations. How better to experience our island than by renting from an owner who has combined her own personal getaway with the conveniences of home and the leisurely delights of a vacation in the sun. Renting from the owner allows you to enjoy private home amenities while avoiding the congestion of resorts and hotels.

My home is located on lovely Ma’alaea Bay, wintertime sanctuary to many humpback whales and their calves. A favorite pastime of residents is reclining on a lounger watching the antics of our oceanic friends.

Just to the west of us is Ma’alaea Marina, home to many yachts and touring boats and the Ma’alaea Village shops. Off to the east is the long sandy span of Sugar Beach, perfect for early morning beach walking. Several good eateries are located within walking distance including one of Maui’s top award winning seafood restaurants, The Waterfront.

The Waterfront is one of Maui’s top award-winning seafood restaurants. The renowned Maui Ocean Center aquarium is only steps away. All in all, this central location is within easy reach of the sights and attractions of Maui.

My condo at the Ma’alaea Kai is an oceanfront walkout. Newly renovated, it embraces the ambiance of the islands with the luxury and comfort of a perfect vacation getaway. Both pool and grilling area are only steps from the lanai against the backdrop of the ocean views and the sounds of the waves and the breezes in the palm trees.

I would love to share my getaway with you. It gives me great pleasure to have others experience the exquisite gem that is Maui. Its setting, its rain forests, mountains, beaches, upcountry adventures, and the underwater world to explore, make Maui truly magical.

You dream it, Maui has it!!

About Barbara Olson

Aloha, I started my career as a flight attendant for Northwest Airlines in 1972 and

after 37 years I am retired. Maui was my favorite destination and it still is. I was fortunate to have had the ability to fly there numerous times a year to escape the Minneasota winters. Sharing my home away from home on wonderful Maui is a joy to me.

I hope I hear from you soon.

Barbara Olson purchased this condo in 2001

Why Barbara Olson chose Maalaea

It is a hidden paradise

What makes this condo unique

My condo is fabulous and the view is the best on the island. You will not find a more central location for your journeys around the island.

Notes:
My unit has an incredible view. It is oceanfront and being a walkout makes it handy to go to the grill or pool. In the evening they light the tiki torches and it is so beautiful. You will love having your morning coffee on the lanai with the ocean directly in front of you. If you are looking to relax, this is the place.

Just Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

This condo is prefect. The view is breathtaking, the condo and grounds are spotless and very well kept. The owner Barbara has thought about every last detail. From a very well equipped kitchen right down to beach chairs. It has a beautiful patio which we were able to enjoy on a daily basis. This is a 5 star condo for sure. We don't want to leave. Thank you for everything Barbara you certainly do have a beautiful condo in paradise. We hope to back sometime soon!

Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

We loved Barbara's place. It had everything we needed. From beach things to Kitchen appliances! We could not have asked for a better view from the place. It was perfect. We had sea turtles right in front of the condo! Pool right next to house. Gas grills to use.

Loved the bed...super comfortable.

Very private. I will be renting this place again :)

A Perfect Honeymoon Condo

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in this condo for our honeymoon and absolutely loved it. The view out the main window looks directly out to the ocean. While on the ground floor, each patio is separated from neighboring condos so you still feel the privacy many people might want. The furniture and condo design had a super beachy feel that we really liked, and is definitely fully stocked with dishes, appliances, and beach going accessories (cooler, chairs, beach towels). No snorkeling gear anymore but it’s extraordinarily cheap to rent some, which we did for just a few bucks. The condo is also oceanfront but no beach right outside, which isn’t an issue at all because there is a beach maybe a 10-minute walk from the condo. Couldn’t have been easier. Air conditioning, cable and internet (wifi), on-site coin-op laundry, off-street parking, and gorgeous property. A great decision we couldn’t be happier with.

A perfect stay in Maui

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Barbara's condo. The location was perfect for us with easy access to the places we wanted to go (at the northern end of Maalea Bay near the Maui Ocean Center). Loved the ground floor location where we could just walk out the door onto the lawn or to look at the sea. The condo was very clean and well stocked with everything we needed. Thanks for the beach gear, including an ice chest, chairs, snorkel gear and boogie boards. (snorkel gear needs some repairing, we fixed one). Barbara was easily available for questions and helped us figure out the safe for valuables. The only thing keeping it from perfection was being able to walk out the door right to a beach. I highly recommend this condo.
