Bedrooms 2
Space 980 sq. ft.
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 5 nights


About the property

2 bedroom, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 4. w/fully equiped kitchen.

Our Ocean Front condo has been remodeled in an island-style with an asianl touch. Enjoy Maui sand and surf just steps from the front of our complex. The Kanai A Nalu resort is centrally located on the southwest side of Maui at the beginning of a pristine beach that runs for 3.5 miles (or more) uninterrupted to the north end of Kihei. Our 3rd floor corner unit is a prime location on the quiet side of the complex (one of only 4 such units). It offers spectacular panoramic views of Haleakala (volcano), Molokini, other islands, and the south shore of Maui (from North Kihei to Wailea and beyond). You can fall asleep to the sound of gentle surf and wake to a glorious Maui sun rising over the 10,000 foot Haleakala volcano. From our private lanai enjoy breakfast, lunch and/or dinner while watching the ocean surf, whales and surfers during the given season. We often opt to dine in on our lanai because this wonderful setting is seldom matched when dining out.

The master bedroom (furnished in island-style) and bath are private with ocean views from two sides, and includes a wall mounted flat screen TV. The 2nd bedroom (furnished in island-style) and bath can be closed for privacy with a unique sliding door. The lanai is furnished to seat four for dining. The kitchen is equipped with range, refrigerator/freezer (with ice-maker), dishwasher, washer/dryer, and microwave. The dining area offers a dining table which is set to seat 4, but can be expanded to seat 8 or 10. The living area is furnished in an island-style with an oriental touch and includes a 42' HDTV and a HD BlueRay Player plus a supply of movies for your enjoyment. Our kitchen has a plentiful supply of dinner ware and cooking utensils and appliances.

Other amenities in the complex include:

Heated Pool just steps from the ocean

Gas BBQ's next to the Pool

Plenty of Lounge Chairs for Sun Bathing

In the condo you will find:

Beach Chairs and beach towels

2 hair dryers

Small Coolers for Picnics (also take one when shopping)

About Pam Thompson

Bruce and Pam Thompson

Pam Thompson purchased this condo in 2001

Why Pam Thompson chose Wailuku

We loved the setting. Our unit is on the 3rd floor, a corner unit so the guest bedroom window is not on the walkway. To fall asleep with the ocean waves is a treat. The beach borders a National Wildlife Reserve. It's like finding the 'real' Maui. Turtles swimming by are an extra plus. It's Paradise for us!

Loved this condo, and its location

  • 5 of 5

We arrived after dark after flying many hours to get to Maui in October, so we were happy to find extremely comfortable beds waiting for us; we could hear the waves on the beach outside and knew that in the morning there would be a wonderful sight waiting for us.....the view from this home's lanai is like a picture postcard! Having visited Maui many times, this area is our favorite place to stay since we enjoy the real scenery and quiet atmosphere found here, so centrally located for any of the places you would want to go. The condo was perfectly cleaned and immaculate when we arrived and the kitchen very well stocked for cooking; since we were there for about three weeks, we enjoyed having the full size washer and dryer to use, and the extra privacy door for the second bedroom/bathroom was great! The bedding and towels were plentiful and the new windows opened and closed easily when we wanted the breezes for our " air conditioning", which was most of the time....I loved the end, corner location of this condo, kind of a secluded feeling that we love. Sometimes we debated about going out for dinner but decided to just stay "home" and make dinner there to be enjoyed at the table on the lanai, with a seaside location and view that most restaurants could not provide, and linger over dinner and the view without being rushed....we would stay there all evening talking and relaxing! We certainly would recommend Pam's condo to anyone....and she herself was so easily accessed for any information and questions! We do hope to come here again on our next adventure to Maui . Thank you so much, Pam!

Owner's Response: We are very happy you enjoyed your 3 weeks at the condo. We hardly ever go out to dinner either, because dinner on the lanai enjoying the view and ocean is the best. It’s a great turtle viewing spot, too. We hope you can return again to enjoy the peace of Maui. Thanks, Pam and Bruce

We loved the condo. It is RIGHT on the ocean, with full views of Maalaea Bay and its whales, as well as a view of sunrise over Haleakala every morning. The condo is comfortable and the kitchen is well equipped. The snorkel gear and cooler and beach chairs were a welcome bonus. We'll be back.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking time to write a review. I really appreciate it. I’m glad you had a great visit and want to return. Being right on the ocean hearing and watching the waves, the whales in season, and the turtles is the best! Mahalo, Pam

Cozy and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

Pam was a joy to deal with from beginning to end. We had email issues in the beginning, but figured things out and everything else went smoothly! We had a bit of trouble with the door when we got there, but she answered my text immediately and we figured things out!

20 minutes from the airport! We were hot because we had done groceries, brought our stuff up, put things away, etc. The AC is a small unit in the living room so we were very concerned about the heat. However, relax, open all windows, turn the fans on and the breeze will cool things off. We had the AC going for the first few hours and never needed it again. It cools down nicely, even needing a sweater in the evening!

The condo was well equipped with everything we needed. We only had breakfasts, but there are a few bar-b-q's by the pool. We didn't take advantage of the pool (too much to do!!), but it looked nice and clean! It was just my husband and I, but two couples would not find it tight - it is cozy!

From the lanai, we saw turtles and a whale!! If you own a pair of binoculars, bring it. If not, consider buying some!! The waves crashing into shore will sooth you and lull you to sleep. I miss it... My husband did some snorkeling and spent a good hour and a half with turtles: from Caribbean-smaller-size to Crush size (Finding Nemo! - it was huge!!) When you are looking at the ocean, walk to your left for about a 1/4 mile. You can see the reef from the beach. That is the nesting place for the turtles. At times it can get murky, but that's the ocean for you!

The condo is a 15 minute, leisurely walk to the Harbor where you will find tours (Pacific Whale watching tour is recommended), restaurants and shopping! Or just a great walk! We had dinner at Beach Bum's Bar and Grill (recommend! - get the ribs!) and Seaside (not so much!) We also picked up some food at Carl's Juniors one night!!

I do recommend a car to explore the island: Paia was cool, and Lahaina of course! If you have an hour to spare (waiting in line - not kidding), rent from Advantage/EZ rent a car to save a few bucks. If it doesn't interest you, go with the better known companies.

If ever I have the chance to visit Maui again, I will definitely contact Pam again!

Mahalo nui loa

  • 5 of 5

We thank you for sharing your home with us, Pam and Bruce. Pam, you have been terrific to work with from the beginning of our reservation nearly a year ago through check-out yesterday. The unit is very comfortably furnished and has a very well-equipped kitchen. We felt right at home! This unit's views overlooking the ocean from the lanai along with great privacy being a corner unit can't be beat. We began each morning with the sunrise and we honu watched each day! I can only imagine how great whale-watching season is with this view. Listening to the waves from the lanai and bedroom window is so soothing. This, in and of itself, was worth the stay!

The grounds are well maintained with lots of trees and native plants in bloom. The pool is great and there is a lot of room to take a lawn chair and make yourself a little retreat area on the grounds. The beach is a hidden jewel with very few people around. You can take a long walk or virtually jog along the beach to Kihei. In the early evening, it's fun to barbecue and gather in the common area and meet new folks.

Thanks again for sharing your lovely place with us. We had a grand time!

Mahalo nui loa,

Super schöne Wohnung

  • 5 of 5

Das Condo liegt direkt am Meer. Der Blick vom Balkon geht direkt auf das Meer und den Strand. Unglaublich schön! Meeresrauschen beim Essen und Schlafen! Die Wohnung ist sehr gut ausgestattet, sehr sauber und mit viel Liebe eingerichtet. Von der Lage her eine der besten der kleinen Wohnanlage. Ruhig und vor Blicken geschützt. Die gesamte Anlage mit div. Wohnungen ist super gepflegt. Reichlich Parkplätze. Ein kleinerer Pool und Liegen in dem großen Garten (Liegewiese) stehen zur Verfügung. Schwimmen kann man direkt vor dem Haus oder ein Stück weiter am öffentlichen Strand sehr gut. Strandspaziergänge sind wunderbar möglich. Man kann beim Spaziergang oder direkt vom Balkon aus die Schildkröten im Meer beobachten. Alle Sehenswürdigkeiten sind einfach erreichbar. Es war definitiv die beste Wohnung unserer gesamten Reise (4 Inseln, 5 Unterkünfte), wir wären sehr gerne länger geblieben! Die Vermieterin ist äußerst nett und im e-mail Kontakt sehr hilfsbereit mit Tipps für Wohnung und Insel. Sehr empfehlenswert. Jederzeit wieder und gerne länger !!

Owner's Response: We're glad you had such a good visit to Maalaea, Maui and enjoyed the condo. Please come visit again. Pam Here is the translation of the review: The condo is directly on the sea. The view from the balcony goes directly to the sea and the beach. Incredibly beautiful! Sea noise when eating and sleeping! The apartment is very well equipped, very clean and furnished with love. From the location one of the best of the small residential complex. Quiet and protected from sight. The entire complex with several apartments is super well maintained. Ample parking. A smaller pool and sun loungers in the large garden (Liegewiese) are available. Swimming can be right in front of the house or a bit further on the public beach very good. Beach walks are wonderful. You can watch the turtles in the sea during the walk or directly from the balcony. All sights are easily accessible. It was definitely the best apartment of our entire trip (4 islands, 5 accommodations), we would have loved to stay longer! The landlady is extremely nice and in e-mail contact very helpful with tips for apartment and island. Highly recommended. Anytime again and gladly longer!
