About Jim Walters

As four Washingtonians, three Cougars and one lone Husky!, we don't always agree on who should win...but two things we do agree on are - escaping to Maui and Kanai 'A Nalu for peace, quiet, beautiful views from our lanai and Paradise For All.

Jim Walters purchased this condo in 2012

Why Jim Walters chose Central Maui

After having stayed at Kanai A Nalu every February with many of our friends and our family over the course of 12 years we realized this was OUR paradise - our home away from home. In 2012, we decided we were not going to stay anywhere else for vacation and we opted to buy one of only eight top floor oceanfront units. 402 has exceeded all of our expectations!

What makes this condo unique

Location, location, location - spectacular views, comfortable living, easy access to everything, the beach, the surf, beautiful grounds, peaceful setting. It is simply paradise!

Guestbook comments from the owner

This condo worked out very well for myself and my 2 kids. Being a single parent, I found this to be a wonderful option. The kids loved the pool and being able to go down to the beach without having to get in the car and drive. The location is fantastic for if we wanted to walk up to the aquarium for an afternoon or dinner at Beach Bums. We also may have walked up for some ice cream also. :) The condo worked well with both the kids having their own beds and I having my own room also. The bathrooms are nicely done and I enjoyed having 2 walk in showers. With the kids....needing a shower to wash away the sand was needed on a daily basis. Having laundry was also very convenient vs. hotels. I would do a load in the evening if needed and was able to keep our towels and swimsuits dry.. Both kids favorite thing was enjoying their meals on the porch and watching all of the sea turtles. This was a very nice home away from home. We felt very comfortable here and safe. We all were able to relax and it was hard for all of us to leave. We will be back again!

Excellent ocean front property, nicely appointed. Good location, quiet and tranquil. Easy access.

  • 5 of 5

This property was a lovely place to vacation. It was clean and well maintained. It had a nice view from the lanai and easy access to the beachfront; you're literally 30 feet from the ocean shore. You have access to the private beach (that is shared with the other units in the building, but never felt crowded). There is a community pool that could be enjoyed if there is preference to swim in fresh water. There is access to two community BBQ grills where one could easily whip up a meal for the family. This unit had air conditioning which made it even more pleasant in the evening if the humidity was a little high. This unit was nicely appointed and had two updated bathrooms. Two bedrooms; one room had a very comfortable king bed, the second had two twins. There was a sofa sleeper in the living room if needed. There were ceiling fans and televisions in every room (no tv in dining room or kitchen). We were able to cook meals in the unit's full kitchen that had the usual appliances one could find in their own residence (microwave, toaster, etc. We were able to store our food from Costco in the fridge and prepare our own meals during our stay--which in my opinion was better (and healthier) than going out to eat all the time. There was a washer/dryer combo (smaller) in the unit which made it so that we didn't have to bring so many clothes. A dishwasher made kitchen clean up easy. All-in-all, it was a lovely place to stay and I would recommend it to my family and friends. Just one thing to consider...the location had easy access to Kihei and Lahaina (about 10 minutes either way). It is a little bit of a drive from the airport and Costco, but manageable (about a half hour...not bad really). For this location, you will need to rent a car if you want to do any sight seeing. Uber does not pick up from the airport. Taxi will cost you about $50 from the airport to the unit. Mahalo!!

Our condo was wonderful. We had everything we needed.

  • 5 of 5

Kanai A Nalu is a hidden gem. Great location - centrally located and very convenient to all areas of the island. The ocean breeze, the crashing sound of the waves and the secluded feel of the location was the prefect vacation for total relaxation.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in this two bedroom condo in July of 2015 and it was truly beyond our expectations. We were with 3 other couples and actually rented 2 two bedroom condos from these owners. The view has to be one of the most beautiful in Maui with the ocean just 20 feet from the condo, stunning views of Mt Haleakala and Molokini crater. We could not wait to wake up in the morning to have coffee on the deck and watch turtles pop their heads up right in front of us.

We have been to Maui many times and it is our favorite place in the world. This is the first time we stayed in the Maalaea section and we loved staying on Sugar beach along with the convenience of being in the middle of the island. Being close to the marina was also lots of fun with casual dining.

The actual unit was beautifully decorated and had everything you could possibly need. The kitchen was completely equipped and had everything we needed and more. The owner was a pleasure to work with, we found him accommodating and friendly. We will definitely rent the same unit again the next time we go to Maui and would recommend it to anyone!

Welcome to Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We searched for a very long time to find a condo in Maui where we would be willing to stay for 3 weeks to celebrate our 30th anniversary and we were not disappointed. This was our trip of a lifetime and our biggest worry was it would not be equal to what we saw on the internet. Well this condo was everything we had hoped for and more. Jim and Linda obviously take a lot of pride in their condo and it shows! Mahalo for sharing you paradise with us!!

The photos accurately reflect the condos appearance and amenities and it was very clean and well maintained on the inside.The property was very pretty and well maintained, look for the bananas in the trees, pool and BBQ area always clean, plenty of beach chairs and a great beach at your footsteps.The lanai offered a gorgeous view from sunrise to sunset. A lot of the time it was calm and when there was a breeze it was just lovely, absolutely nothing to complain about.

If you like a quiet location and long walks on an uncrowded beach this is a wonderful location. We went to many other beaches and although they were beautiful some were very crowded so we were always happy to relax and enjoy the peacefulness of our beach. Even our young adult kids found plenty to do on our beach. We did travel the whole island so we were really happy with the location- it gave us quick and easy access to all the coasts.

Wave Riders in Kihei for paddle board and surf lessons. Kids were surfing within the first 1/2 hour of lesson ask for Boobieshack-kids thought he was great. Air Maui for a helicopter ride you will never forget (go online to get 20% off coupon)So informative and they do a video of your ride which is really worth getting.

We did get up at 3:30 am to drive up to the summit for the sunrise-so worth it to be above the clouds.

Old Lahaina Luau was great entertainment and had a wonderful buffet

This was our paradise for 3 weeks and it comes highly recommended!!

Within 15 minutes of picking up your luggage you can be settling into your vacation at 402 Kanai A Nalu. Conveniently located yet peaceful and quiet there is much to do within walking distance - the aquarium, Buzz's Wharf for all ocean excurions, shopping and great restaurants. Other great experiences are also a close drive away - 3-golf courses within 10 minutes; 15 minutes to Kahului; 10 minutes to Kihei and another 5 to Wailea; 20 minutes to Lahaina and 30 minutes to Ka'anapali. Bus service is a 5 minute walk to Malaaea Bay Harbor and costs as low as $2 all day.

Driving Directions to Kanai A Nalu 402:1. Head directly out from the airport. You'll be on Dairy Road.

2. Dairy Road becomes Hwy 380. Continue west about 8 miles until it ends.

3. Turn left on Hwy 30, called Honopiilani Hwy.

4. About a mile later, bear left at the green highway sign for Ma’alaea Village. You'll be on Ma’alaea Rd.

◦ Alternate route: if you miss the turn (or prefer to turn at a traffic signal), continue on Hwy 30 about 1/2 mile further. At the traffic light, turn left (Kapoli St). Then right onto Ma’alaea Road.

5. Turn left onto Hauoli Street (it says 'Rd' on the attached map).

6. Continue 1/2 a mile to 250 Hauoli St. It's just after the 3rd speed bump.

7. When you see the 'Kanai A Nalu' sign (white letters on a blue background), turn into the driveway and take an immediate left then a right to follow the parking lot to the other side of the complex.

8. Unit #402 is in the building straight ahead – closest to the ocean, with steps on the right. Elevator (northwest) is next to the manager office around the corner from unit 108! Newspaper machine is right there too along with luggage cart.
