Paradise With A Million Dollar View From Oceanfront Lanai!

Bedrooms 2
Space 980 sq. ft.
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 2 - 3 nights


About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

This third floor piece of Paradise has the most fantastic oceanfront view you will ever see. Lauloa means 'long wave' and when you sit on the lanai you will understand how it was named. Look across the bay to Mt. Haleakela, Makenna Point Waialea and Kihei.

Dusk from the lanai is truly an artist's palette. The sky turns shades of pink as the sun sets. During the day you'll see the deepest of blues and occasionally a puffy white cloud will appear. The view of the sunrise over Mt. Haleakela is equally awe inspiring.

In the winter during the day and into the evening whales play in the waters right off shore and year-round sea turtles are often spotted right near shore out front.

In the summer and fall when the swells come in from the south you can often catch surfers right out front riding the freight train wave...supposedly the fastest breaking wave in the world!

Your stay here will go on for ever and ever in your mind! Two bedrooms and baths, bamboo floors, fully equipped kitchen with a washer/dryer right in the condo so you can save that space in the suitcase for all the memories you'll want to bring home. Enjoy the updates and improvements made by the owners on their annual trip to furniture this year.

The bathrooms have widened doorways (36' and 32') for wheelchair accessibility. Both bathrooms have new vanities with granite counter tops and new storage cabinets. The Master Bath also includes a new all tile roll in shower that everyone will appreciate, not just wheelchair users. The walls and floors are also redone with beautiful new tile, and there is also new lighting.

The condo property is impeccable. Lush plantings, a water garden, lobby with chairs that enable you to sit, relax and read a book from the condo library. The lobby opens to a swimming pool, barbecue and many chairs to just lounge your day away.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Got in to darkness but up early for sunrise and low and behold a momma and calf where right out in front. What a fantastic welcome. Tons of turtles. Walking distance to town and beach just down street towards bird sanctuary. Early starts in morning and back for cocktails and dinner, and off to bed. Repeat!

Made it around the entire Island (90%) and snorkeled the whole way. Just one rainy day. So dis the Hana Highway with its 620 turns. Never turned on a/c as the trade winds were natures a/c. Nice quiet area and Beach Bums for happy hour. Did kayak tour with Maui Kayaks. Book early because they don't go out if too windy, ask for John (great tour guide). Turtles so close you could touch them, but don't.

Hopefully we will be back!

A Private Sunrise Every Morning

  • 5 of 5

Would definitely recommend this condo. Was perfect for two couples for a week. Very well equipped; owner uses it several months every year so it is kept up to scratch - new linens, towels, everything in good order. Kitchen was easy and well equipped. Proper full-sized washer and dryer. Made a point to get up for coffee on the lanai every morning for sunrise across the bay - amazing! No trouble with wifi. Found we didn't need the air-con after the first day as ceiling fans kept us comfortable at night. Refreshing pool with poolside barbecue. My top tip: we had some great lunches at local golf clubs, stunning views, great service, a little more relaxed than the bustling beachfront hot spots (which were also fun). Quiet location directly on the bay, nice beach, marina, whale watching and shops just a short walk. Easy to navigate around island. We had plenty to do and see over the week. We left refreshed and looking forward to another stay. We would definitely return to this condo.

Million Dollar View of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year in a row we've stayed at Jerry and Barbara's condo. We've stayed at other properties on Maui for more money and they don't come close in comparison to this unit. The view from the lanai is spectacular!! It's very private and as the pictures show right on the ocean. We watched whales and their calves, and large sea turtles swimming in the ocean while we ate our breakfast on the lanai. There are direct views of Mt. Haleakala (great sunrise pictures), the small snorkeling island of Molokini and the larger island Molokai right from the unit which is on the third floor. The location is perfect, centrally located for travel to other parts of Maui and very quiet as you will not see the tourists like in Kihei 10 minutes away. A 5 minute walk gets you to shops, restaurants, a dock for whale cruising, etc., a farmers market or the Maui Ocean Center. Be sure to have a meal at the Beach Bums overlooking the marina at Maalaea. Jerry and Barbara were very helpful in pointing out local restaurants on the island, sights and some of the events unique to Maui. The unit is well equipped if you chose to do some cooking and the appliances are up-scale and include a new washer and dryer. When we used the swimming pool which fronts the ocean, we had the pool to ourselves. We did not have to use the air-conditioner since the trade winds were produced such a natural air flow throughout the beautifully decorated unit. We were able to use our computers and the 4G service. We also used some of the beach amenities that come with the unit. We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this condo and plan on returning soon. I would highly recommend it to anyone that wants a true Hawaiian experience.

trip review

  • 4 of 5

Great location and very comfortable with a great view. Second bedroom had no privacy, especially when the window was open to allow for the trade winds.

Our contact Barbara Potopowitz was a pleasure to work with. She was very responsive, professional and had great attention to detail. I will endeavor to work with her on future trips to Mauai.

The property was clean and well maintained and I look forward to staying there again. The property is in close proximity and walking distance to good eating places. I recommend The Waterfront Restaurant for a fine dinner experience. We enjoyed eating breakfast at Beach Bums.

A beautiful paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the view and convenient location. Sitting on the lanai we enjoyed the surfers and lovely ocean breezes. We never needed a/c. The condo is beautifully decorated. The amenities were great; there's even a cooler and big beach towels to take to the beach. There's a swimming beach within walking distance as well as two small stores. We appreciated having WiFi, too. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend it. We will definitely go back!

It was a wonderful stay.

  • 5 of 5

This condo is just great with amazing ocean view, we saw turtles, searls and whales everyday, you don't really have to some where too far for those, but just right in front of you!! My husband and his son even went to snorkel directly and they saw huge turtles that bigger than them, how awesome it is!!! This condo is also at very quiet area, you won't see too many tourist, so you can really relax your vacation. There is a restaurant Beach Bums near by the harbor and they have very good food with generous portion, couple grocey stories near by, basically you can get anything you want. This condo also provide everything you need as same as you stay at your own house, kitchen well stocked, all beach activities tools.. everything. Although we can't find the internet access, but 4G signal is everywhere and you won't really need internet that much on your vacation, just enjoy the view from the balcony is wonderful enough than anything. We denfinitly recommend everyone to stay at this condo or at least this area. If we have a chance to return to Maui, this condo will be our only choice. Thanks again Barbara, for everything.

Amazing ocean views!

  • 4 of 5

Our party of six adults stayed in this condo for ten days. We liked the location and found it conveniently located within 30 min's of everything. We loved the lanai views and enjoyed our coffee here every morning. The new beds were comfortably firm and appointed with wonderful linens. The kitchen had all the kitchenware we could want and the baths were spacious with plenty of hot water & towels.

For those few hot nights we appreciated having air conditioning, but most of the time we left the lanai door open. (Yes, the mosquitoes did find a way in!) We had the pool to ourselves and often we were the only ones to use the grill. We found the residents we met were friendly and eager to share their Maui stories. One told us about snorkeling right in front of the complex and yes, we saw amazing sea turtles!

You'll find this condo a little tired but sun filled and homey. Some of the appliances and cabinets (and the uncomfortable futon) need replacing. However you can tell the owners are working hard to update everything and replace what really counts. Barbara is great about answering your reservation questions. She patiently worked with us until we were satisfied we found the right condo for our vacation. And since she was out of town while we were staying in Maui, she had Jan, the housekeeper, address any of our concerns. Jan was amazing and whenever we needed something she was quick to return our calls. Thanks again Jan for all of your help!!

Mahalo to the owners for sharing your home in paradise with us!
