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.

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
It is a hidden paradise
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.
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.
This property is absolutely gorgeous. We loved staying in Ma'alea. It's very central, yet quiet and off the beaten track. The unit itself is gorgeous, clean, and well equipped. The patio opens up to the softest green grass leading to the bbq's overlooking the sea. There is no beach in front of the condo, but we really didn't miss it. We were still able to take in the beauty of the ocean, along with the sea turtles that are everywhere you look right off your back porch. I highly recommend this beautiful property and unit 112. You will not be disappointed. It's magical.
We came to Maui to celebrate our 20th anniversary. The weather was somewhat uncooperative, but even on rainy nights, it was such a wonderful place to stay! It's quiet and the bed is so comfortable that you fall asleep instantly. The property has everything you could want and more. Walk right out to the pool which is a perfect temperature, walk out to the ocean and watch the huge sea turtles come in for their evening meal, enjoy coffee or drinks on the lanai (even in the rain), and enjoy the wonderful condo. It's exceptionally clean, with Hawaiian décor. The location is perfect, you can go anywhere easily. Thank you SO much Barbara, for sharing your beautiful property with us! We'd love to come back soon.
Just like every other review, what an amazing place. She had everything you could think of. Amazing view every morning.
Our stay at the condo made this trip to Maui our favorite yet. The location allowed for the perfect mix of peace & quiet as well as quick access to all of the fun activities & restaurants that Maui is known for. The condo was very clean & fully stocked with all the comforts of home as well as everything you could need while on Maui. In fact, I recommend that you really look around before renting snorkel equipment, beach needs, or the grocery store. The pictures show exactly what you get ... with the water just steps away. We couldn't have asked for anything more.
This condo is absolutely perfect in every single way! It's as if the owner prepared the condo for herself to stay in, and then left it for us to enjoy! Everything we needed for a fabulous day at the beach was made handy at the condo (we loved the beach chairs with the hidden cooler compartments on the back), the view is absolutely stunning (you can't beat that Maui sunrise), and she had all the staples available to make our own meals. The A/C works perfectly and cools the condo quickly, and the location of the condo is nice and quiet. This condo is well stocked, and has everything needed for a comfortable, relaxing stay. When we return to Maui, there is absolutely no where else we would stay. The resorts can't compare to this condo!
Other Activities: The Ocean center aquarium and the Ma'alaea Marina where you can charter fishing boats, take a whale watch, dinner cruise, sunset cruise or go snorkeling over to Molokini is walking distance from the condo. There are also shops and restaurants there.
