Ma'alaea is Maui's best kept secret. This is where the best whale viewing is - but only for the residents of the handful of condominiums along the shore of Ma'alaea Bay.
Beautiful, recently remodeled unit less than 50 feet from the ocean. Fabulous view of Haleakala. Watch whales, sea turtles and manta rays frolic from your lanai. Maui's best surfing wave - the Freight Train - is 100 yards away. All this, and absolute quiet - other than the sound of the surf lulling you to sleep.
Walking distance to several shops, restaurants, the Maui Ocean Center Aquarium and Ma'alaea Harbor for whale watching and Molokini snorkel/scuba tours. The property is very quiet for a restful and relaxing vacation, but close to the many activities that Maui offers. It is 5 miles to Kihei, 8 miles to Kahului, and 15 miles to Lahaina.
We have very comfortable beds in the two bedrooms and a sleeper sofa if you need more space. The Tradewinds Deli, a wonderful little convenience store with daily hot specials, is right next door for last-minute amenities, Island produce and a great variety of beverages.
A small local beach park at the end of our short road marks the beginning of the well-known Sugar Beach. You can walk unobstructed for several miles to Kihei along this lovely sandy stretch.

Meera Kohler purchased this Condo in 2009
Why Meera Kohler chose Maalaea
Living in Alaska, we like to get away to warm and sunny places in the winter and Maui is perfect. We decided to buy a condo for ourselves and our families and as an investment for vacation rentals.
What makes this Condo unique
Ma'alaea Yacht Marina, at 30 Hauoli Road, is a small property with 45 condos and an on-site resident manager. Many of the owners live in their condos, so you will feel like you are part of an extended family when you visit. The pool, barbecues and grounds are impeccably maintained. Each unit has a dedicated parking space and there are several spots for visitor parking as well. Our unit is a first floor unit, but we are elevated about six feet above the ground on the ocean side so that a spectacular view and complete privacy are assured.

Great Stay :)
Everything we needed was at the condo
The condo owners went out of there way to make everything easy.
Great place from which to tour the island.
This condo is very livable, clean, and nicely decorated. The washer and dryer are in a separate area of the building and are pay for use. There is a lot of wind in this area at least in April of this year. Every place on the island is easily accessible from this central point. The sea turtles are often seen in the harbour just outside the condo. Sugar beach stretches south of here for an amazing early morning walk or swim in the ocean. If you want to go snorkelling you need to drive to other areas or take a tour which leaves from the harbour just outside the door.
Amazing condo with view!
Clean, quiet, well stocked with beach gear, and super comfortable. Perfect for family of 2-4!
If you want to have an amazing sleep, amazing view and a great central location away from busier towns... this place is for you!!! Main floor unit is easy to access (no stairs and elevator). Pool is clean and nice option from the beach. There are turtles in the ocean right outside the condo! This place was our best decision!!!
Just perfect. We will definitely rent this condo again
Condo lovely, location perfect, wonderful beach a block away, owner is the best. First time on Maui couldn't have been better unless we could have stayed longer.
Everything we expected. The yacht club was always entertaining. Saw several whales. Would definitely come again.
Amazing condo in Maui!
Everything you need is there!
