Why Sandy Szymanski chose Maalaea

Maalaea is Centrally located. You will want to see all of the island and this location is absolutely, hands down, THE BEST spot to make your home while exploring Maui.

What makes this condo unique

Not only are you centrally located for driving and sight seeing the entire island, you are within a 10 min (or less) WALK to sandy beachs, Haycraft Park, the Maui Ocean Center, Maui Sports Park, Maalaea Harbor (to catch all the boats for all kine excursions), multiple restaurants, shops for enjoyment, a fueling station, and even a convenience store. And you are NOT in the busy hububb of south Maui.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Aloha Sandy,

Thank you very much for renting your apartment to us for our stay in Maui. We enjoyed the location especially being able to see the whales and turtles from the lanai.

The little touches in the kitchen was also a pleasant surprise-- the spices, condiments etc. It may meal preparation a little easier and more enjoyable. The bed was comfortable and the unit was quiet and peaceful.

Overall, our stay in your unit was one of the most pleasant we have had on Maui.

Thank you again,

V. & D.

Relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was a great property for my husband and I. The location was 30 minutes or less from almost everywhere. The view was amazing and we spent every morning and evening on the lanai. The sound of the waves was so relaxing. Sandy was great to work with and very responsive. Much appreciated! We would absolutely stay here again.

Great location for visiting surrounding beaches, very clean!

  • 5 of 5

We wish there was more of a beach area but the condo was the perfect distance for driving to the surrounding beaches. Clean facility and very accommodating for our stay.

Owner's Response: I'm glad to hear you enjoyed your retreat and your accommodations! It is true that our property's location is ideal because you can get anywhere on the island easily due to its central location. I also would agree that the beach directly next door is small and maybe not much of a beach to hang out at for the day. But let's not forget about Haycraft Beach Park which is just at the end of our street (5 minute walk or 30 second car ride). This beach is not only a great beach to play and hang out at, it is one of the longest beaches on the island. It spans from Maaleaea to Sugar Beach and offers a sandy beach walk of over 1.5 miles. I am sorry if you may have missed this gem located right in our backyard. I will do a better job of sharing this info with guests in the future. Thank you! With Aloha, Sandy

best place on Maui!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place: the view is stunning, there is good snorkelling right out back, there is a lovely breeze blowing through the condo, the balcony is private, the BBQ's work, and the pool was lovely. We will definitely stay there again.

Million Dollar View and Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

Right from the start Sandy the owner was a pleasure to deal with. She was quick to reply and always helpful with any questions. Booking was simple and painless with clear instructions leading up to our trip.

Getting to the condo is a short 20 minute drive from the airport with a reserved parking spot waiting on you. An elevator makes getting to your room a breeze.

From the moment you walk out onto the second floor balcony at this location you know you have found paradise. Beautiful ocean views, palm trees, and sunrises over Maui's highest point Haleakala. We spent every morning and evening sitting there enjoying the sights and sounds.

The condo itself is well furnished. You have a separate bedroom from the living area, updated bathroom with lots of space in the medicine cabinet, and well equipped kitchen. There is a microwave, toaster, stove with oven, and refrigerator with top freezer. There are many utensils, silverware, plates and glasses to fill most anyone's needs. And best of all...your own personal washer and dryer right inside. We only used it a couple times, but it was so nice not to have to lug laundry out somewhere.

The property and condo were all well maintained and clean. The outside grounds were neat and there are several places to wash off after a day at the beach. Inside, the condo was clean with no complaints from us. Tile floors are tile throughout except the bedroom which is carpeted. Bathroom was a comfortable size with no dirt.

Location is a big plus if you are like us and want to travel the island! Being centrally located allowed us to enjoy more. We stayed in western Maui on a previous stay, and though beautiful, it takes a lot longer to travel to the amazing south beaches, get to Hana, and visit the 10,000 ft summit of Haleakala. Despite this location of the island being known as super windy we found the wind to be refreshing and actually not bad at all.

A five minute walk or one minute drive down the road leads to a few shops, a couple restaurants, the Maui Ocean Center (aquarium), and the beautiful harbor. Many excursions (snorkeling trips, cruises, etc) all leave from the harbor. We walked down there and enjoyed the looking at the boats and yachts. The aquarium is great for all ages and a great way to spend a couple hours. Beach Bums and Seascape restaurants were so good! Seascape is more a romantic place and Beach Bums is a casual kick back type.

We highly recommend this condo!

From the first step inside this condo I was filled with happiness. The beautiful view of the ocean and the comfortable cool breeze. We relaxed immediately!

Clean and fully stocked kitchen, spacious bedroom and bath. Couldn't have asked for more!
