Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

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 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.

About Meera Kohler

The property is named Aurora Sands - signifying the union of Alaska (Aurora Borealis) and Maui (endless sand beaches and azure waters.) The property is owned by two women friends in Alaska. Hawaii Tax ID: W10780602-01 (Marilyn Leland 907-441-1866) and W63599587-01 (Meera Kohler 907-952-6161)

Meera Kohler purchased this condo in 2009

Why Meera Kohler chose Wailuku

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 little home, close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

We love Maui! Our home we stayed at was cute and comfortable. Close to everything. We zipped lines, surfed and enjoyed the road to Hana. Plus the Luau was amazing in Lahaina ! Thank you letting us discover this magical island of Maui.

Awesome central location on Maui. the owners are fabulous to work with !

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at Aurora Sands. We came back because our first experience was so good - we knew our second stay would be great as well.

And it was... everything about the condo is perfect. Waterfront, great view, trade winds to keep the condo cool. Quiet in the evenings for enjoying dinners on the lanai.

The central location is wonderful. 20 minutes to Lahaina, 10-15 minutes to Kihei, 15 minutes to the airport.

We'll return to Aurora Sands on future visits to Maui, the owners are great to work with and are very accommodating. We highly recommend this condo - you'll be delighted if you stay here !

Well appointed, very clean, beautiful views, convenient to everything.

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary here with our sister-in-law and husband who were celebrating their 52nd. We enjoyed time on the lanai watching the activity in the harbor. The condo was convenient for trips to Kihei , the upcountry, and Lahaina. We found Beach Bums at the Maalea Harbor and loved their prime rib special and the smoked ribs.
