Description of Condo

Our beautifully redecorated one bedroom/one bath oceanfront condominium is at Maalaea Kai in beautiful Maalaea Maui. We are always working to keep our condo updated and as nice as we can. In 2017 we installed beautiful bamboo flooring in the living room, kitchen, and hallway.

The entire condo is air conditioned! Our unit differs from most condominiums in Maui in that the building is on a cul-de-sac so there is little vehicular traffic. Also, unlike most condos, you can hear the ocean from the bedroom as well as the living room. Because we are a corner unit, our bedroom has windows on two walls and one of them faces the ocean! We are also unique in that our plush bed and bedding are of the highest quality we could buy. You will think you're staying at a 5 Star hotel!

Living Room

Being a corner unit, there is a side window, in addition to the sliding glass door, that gives you more light and airflow. The living room has new bamboo floors, a sleeper sofa, which sleeps two, and a love seat. (Knowing that sleeper sofas aren't as comfortable as a regular bed, we have a pillow top to put on top of the mattress so its nice and comfy.) There is a dining table with four chairs. Our entertainment system includes a 40' flat screen TV, a DVD player, and a CD player. You can also connect your iPhone to play your own music. We have a large selection of movies on DVD. We have free wifi and free long distance to the U.S. mainland and Canada.

Bedroom

Our bedroom has plush carpeting, new drapes, and a king-size bed (two extra-long twins connected together in a king-size frame so you won't feel your companion moving in the middle of the night). We are very particular about the bed we sleep in and our comfort is as important to us as it is to you. Our mattresses are Simmons Beautyrest Euro Plush Pillowtops. You will love them! The sheets are buttery soft and the four king pillows are 100% down. We bought the best pillows we could find! (We also have non-down pillows in case you are allergic.) The duvet is beautifully done by Calvin Klein. You will be in total comfort while falling asleep to the blissful sound of the ocean!

Kitchen

Our kitchen has a new stove/cook-top and is fully stocked with everything you could want, including beautiful Hawaiian china, wine glasses, a blender, a toaster, a microwave, an oven, a refrigerator, and all the pots and pans you would need.

Bathroom

The bathroom has a nice tub/shower combination. We put in a new mosaic tile floor and a beautiful new vanity and matching mirror.

Other Amenities include:

*Beach towels

*Picnic cooler

*Hairdryer

*Iron and ironing board

About Owner

We, Danny and Frederick, live in Snohomish WA and own a spa called The Gated Sanctuary, Centre for Healing. The spa specializes in therapeutic massage and hydrotherapy.

Danny lived on Maui in 1991 and had always wanted to return. We both share the same love and respect for Hawaii, its people and their culture. We have a special love for Maui in particular.

Living in the quiet countryside of Snohomish County in WA, we wanted to find a special place in Maui that was equally quiet and oceanfront. We looked all over South Maui and fell in love with Maalaea. Most condos in South Maui are off of busy streets and you can hear a lot of road noise from the bedrooms, which are typically off of the street. Maalaea is different in that the condominiums are all along a quiet cul-de-sac.

We also like Maalaea because, being in the 'valley' portion of Maui, it has a bit more wind than other parts. This keeps the area cooler than many other parts of the island.

The other wonderful thing about Maalaea is its location. It is literally minutes away from most anywhere you would want to go in Maui.

Owner purchased this condo in 2012

Why Owner chose Maalaea

When we walked on the property of Maalaea Kai the first time in 2012 we immediately noticed the attention to detail in how the grounds and the building are maintained. It's immaculate! Before buying this condo we looked at many, many properties all over Kihei and Maalaea. This one really stood out to us in that it's impeccably kept.

We also fell in love with the fact that the building is on a cul-de-sac so there is little vehicular traffic. Most condos are on busy streets so there is a lot of road noise. This isn't the case here.

And finally, we loved the fact that our unit has windows on two walls in the bedroom and one of them faces the ocean. It's rare to be able to hear the ocean from your bedroom. Most condos have the bedrooms facing the street so you hear a lot of road noise if you open the window. In our unit you hear the blissful sound of the ocean!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you for a wonderful stay. We felt we were visiting with friends while they were away. The condo is so homey and not sterile.



The view is breathtaking with a most enjoyable breeze. The book, "Maui Revealed" was extremely helpful. Thank you!



PS Saltimboca, near the pier, (15 minute walk) is a lovely Italian restaurant for those who do not wish to cook on arrival...

Truly, a home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this condo last September for 5 days and it was THE best! We traveled with our 4-year-old and 2-year-old and the the location is just perfect. It is just steps to the Maui Ocean Center where we bought a one-week pass. It is a perfect central location as it is also just 5 minutes drive to Kihei, and 15 minutes to Costco. It is also a HUGE plus to see the sunrise and sunset everyday. The 2nd week of our vacay, we stayed at the Ka'anapali Ocean villas but we enjoyed our stay here better. We'll definitely book here again next time. Lastly, the owner was also very easy to work with and responded to my messages instantly:)

Unit 204 Maalaea Kai

  • 5 of 5

The property was beautiful and very well maintained. We liked the fact we were on the ocean and had an ocean view. The condo had everything we needed to our stay a memorable. We liked the fact that we could run the two air conditioning units separately. We used the one in the bedroom at night and never had to use the one in the main living area. We liked the fact that the lanai was sheltered from the prevailing winds and spent a great deal of time on it. We liked the fact that the beach was deserted and we could walk for miles. It was nice to be walking distance to the harbour and the Maui Ocean Center.

location is perfect

  • 4 of 5

The condo is in a perfect location to get to all of the island. It has beautiful sunrises and turtles to be seen at the edge of the property in the bay. The layout is perfect for a couple, with the addition of AC a bonus. You can get the trades blowing through which makes it more than comfortable.

I know alot of people have said the bed is comfortable it was ok but still longed for my home at bed. We did end up buying a couple of firmer pillows. The furniture in the living area could use some updating but again perhaps personal preference. Depending on landing patterns for the airport just know you will get planes overhead throughout the day, but you're on an island so hard not to.

The location really can't be beat the complex is great, overall the condo is comfortable.

Beautiful Condo

  • 5 of 5

Great Condo on Maalaea Bay. Nice quiet area overlooking the bay. Well stocked kitchen for cooking meals. Very comfortable bed , heated pool & beautiful grounds. However I didn't like paying VRBO'S fee of 7.32% per night.

Nice well maintained condo.

  • 4 of 5

Very clean and well maintained condo. Had everything we needed. We did see whales and turtles right in front of condo. Was a little noisy during day because of wind direction we were in flight path of airport.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I stayed in this condo Jan 31 - Feb. 3. This was a beautiful condo; and convenient to airport and our activities. The write up on vrbo is accurate.The owner was very responsive to my initial request and subsequent emails regarding the rental of the property. We arrived after the office closed, but the information on how to get keys was accurate. Having coffee in the morning on the balcony was awesome as you could watch the waves calmly roll in from the bay. The sunsets were magnificent. The breeze throughout the condo was wonderful and the A/C was never turned on. The three washers and dryers used a credit card for payment which was convenient.
