About The Owner

Our first vacation to Maui was all it took, we were hooked. Knowing that we wanted to return Maui as much as possible, we decided to take the proceeds from the condo we had just sold in California and use it to purchase a condo in Maui. Now that we're both retired we visit our home here in Maui at least 3 to 4 months out of the year.

The Owner purchased this condo in 1997

Why The Owner chose Wailuku

We Flew back to Maui several times to check out different areas in Maui. We started in Kiehi then travelled all the way up to Napili. We ended up choosing our property for several reasons. We loved that it was not over crowded with tourists and traffic, like many areas have become. Maahalaea is quiet and laid back. We enjoy sitting on the Lanai so much as you feel the warm tropical breeze flow through your hair your eyes direct you down the tropical garden path to the cool waters edge of our private swimming pool. If that were'nt captivating enough if you continue a few more feet you'll feel the warm sand between your toes because you've now arrived at the edge of our beautiful white sandy beach. At certin times of the year you can actually see the whales swimming by. The blue tranquil waters sparkle from the sun dancing on top of the waves like little crystals,its breath taking!And This my friend is why we choose our condo in our little corner of Paradise and we hope you will share it too.

Maui sandwatch the twinkle of the sun dancing on top of the water like little crystalssparkles. Thats when you take a deep breath and know your in Hawaii!

Nice Property, Fair Location

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the condo. We had four adults and stayed for five days. The property is spacious, clean and well kept. The views from the lanai were outstanding. The condo has one 'window type' air conditioner and it is not enough to keep the living area and bedrooms cool during hot humid days (Temps were in the high 80s and low 90s with dew points around 75). The AC is also on a timer and can only be run for four hours before resetting. The condo is located in Maalaea which has a couple restaurants, a gas station and a little general store. It is about 18 miles from Lahaina (30 to 45 minute drive) and about 12 miles from Kihei (about a 15 to 20 minute drive). We liked the condo but would prefer to be closer to Lahaina.

Location of condo was great. Met our needs in every way. Furniture very dated, and no TV in BR as advertised. Owners were very accommodating. Would stay here again!

Perfect location, Comfortable accommodations, Exceeded my expectations.

  • 5 of 5

Everything you want in a beach front rental. We had a fantastic experience in Condo #209. The view from the Lanai is amazing. We spent every morning and every evening watching the waves crash into the shore. The pool area is beautiful with a gorgeous blue tile bottom. The condo provides a home-like atmosphere in paradise. This condo is quite spacious, perfect for a family of four. The beds are comfortable, it was very quiet during our stay. I fell asleep to the sound of the ocean every night. The kitchen is well stocked. The closet has everything you need for a perfect day at the beach (boogie boards, beach towels, sand toys, pool floats). The parking is very convenient and the location of Kanai A Nalu on Maui is centrally located. Only about 30 minutes to West Maui, South Maui, Up Country and the airport. We stopped by Costco and Safeway Grocery Store near the airport before arriving at Kanai A Nalu.

We were traveling with our family of 10 people. We rented 3 condos at this location. Kanai A Nalu provides a great atmosphere for a family vacation.

This is our third visit to "our" condo at Kanai A Nalu. Enes and Joanne are peaches to work with, and we have so enjoyed sharing the condo and Maui with family and friends. We hope to return many more years. Mahalo.

Loved it

  • 5 of 5

Maalaea Bay is a hidden treasure in comparison to the tourist areas of Lahaina and Kihei. We use to stay on the west side of the island but found Maalaea Bay and loved it.

The grounds are beautifully kept, very clean and tropical. This area is quiet and there is a beautiful sandy beach in front, which we walked daily, continues for miles.

Kanai A Nalu is centrally located and a quick drive to anywhere on the island.

The unit was comfortable and the view from the lanai is breathtaking, we started and ended our days there. We watched the whales from the lanai and when walking the beach we saw some turtles. We were able to snorkel right in from of the condo and saw many different fish and sea life. The kitchen has everything you need to prepare meals. We ate most of our meals at the condo.

We booked directly with the owners. Can’t say enough good things about Enes and Joanne. They are the best to deal with.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This was our third straight holiday season to stay in this unit. It has always been clean and organized upon arrival. Lynn, the on island contact, was prompt in returning our call and extremely pleasant and helpful. Enes and Joanne have always been terrific to work with through email and over the phone. We love the location in which we can walk to the harbor and take long walks on sugar sand beach. The grills are wonderful to prepare evening meals. Typically we stay two weeks, but next year we have already booked for three!
