Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms with King-Sized beds, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

If you like the sun and the beach this is the place for you!!! It's the perfect home away from home with everything you need! It has king-sized beds in both bedrooms, HDTVs everywhere, and a fully stocked kitchen with everything youi need including toaster/blender/etc, paper products, spices, and more. The inside is peaceful and perfect, but the outside is unbelievable. The pictures were all taken by us and hopefully they do the place justice. Those taken from above (e.g. views of the pool) were really taken from our Lanai and those on the beach were really taken from right in front of the condo!

We just installed high-speed (100mbps) internet and encrypted wifi. We can usually get our wifi signal at the pool so you can sit around the pool and work or play if you want to.

We have lots of play toys for your use including beach chairs & towels, boogie boards, sand toys, a cooler, even some snorkeling gear.

The Kanai A Nalu condo complex means 'gentle surf' in Hawaii. Enjoy the gentle surf just steps from the condo!!!

About Barb and Larry

We've been happily married since 1984 (over 30 years) and have two wonderful daughters and a super grandson and granddaughter. We both recently retired and wanted a place in the sun. Larry was an engineering manager and Barb was a rental property manager. Together we love vacations, love the sun/beach, and understand how to manage properties. This seemed like a perfect fit to buy a place on Maui and rent it out to old & new friends.

Barb and Larry purchased this condo in 2013

Why Barb and Larry chose Wailuku

We visited Maui when our kids were younger and loved the area. After visiting a newly transplanted friend there in the fall of 2012 we decided to see if we could find a place of our own. Luck was on our side and we were able to find this beautiful condo in 2013. We spent five very long weeks remodeling the unit to update it and then because the unit was empty when we purchased it we got to completely furnish it from the beds & couches down to the plates and silverware. Everything was bought new.

What makes this condo unique

We actually bought this condo sight-unseen because we knew the area. Location, location, location, right? The condo sits right on the most beautiful and longest beach on Maui. What makes our condo unique is that it's literately at the beginning of a 4.5 mile sandy beach and most of the beach is on a nature preserve so there are only two other condos on the beach. This provides unbelievable seclusion yet is close to everything on Maui!

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was the perfect setup for us. We stayed with our close friends and having a king bed in the second bedroom was perfect since we didn’t have to fight over bedrooms. The kitchen was perfect too with everything we ever needed. The weather was perfect and we sat on the deck in the evenings playing cards, listening to the waves, and having MaiTais.

Great location!

  • 3 of 5

This condo has a good location, is quiet, and has beautiful landscaping. The pool is nice, we used the grill 2 nights, and beach is very close too. There were beach chairs, beach towels, toys, and some snorkeling equipment-which was great.

The condo itself wasn't the cleanest, we found wet dishes in the cupboard upon arrival, and questioned if the sheets had been washed in the master bedroom. Also the sofa bed is not comfortable, can feel every spring. There is only 1 window air conditioner in the living room, so when the temperature is 90 it is warm in the bedrooms, ceiling and box fans did make it bearable.

The beds in the 2 bedrooms were comfortable. All in all the condo was well stocked, kitchen had everything we could have needed and then some. We did run out of laundry soap, but Larry responded to my email quickly to attempt to have some delivered.

The price was very reasonable for Maui. We very much enjoyed our vacation.

Owner's Response: We're sorry you didn't find our condo amazing. Unfortunately sleeper sofas are never very comfortable, but we tried to address your concern while you were still there. There are limited options on Maui and we couldn't get a new mattress during your stay even though we tried, but we did offer to purchase an air mattress to help. You never mentioned your concern about the cleanliness so we didn't get a chance to address that concern during your stay. Our condo is definitely cleaned between guests and we have two sets of bedding that we replace with new every year. I suspect the wet dishes were because they just came out of the dishwasher. Had you mentioned a concern we would have had our cleaner stop by though. We pride ourselves in how comfortable, clean, and well-stocked our condo is so we appreciate your concerns and have tried to address them. We're sorry we weren't able to make your stay as perfect as it should have been. Barb & Larry

Convenient and cozy condo

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our one week stay. The location was very convenient to many things we wanted to do and the condo itself and was very comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed and we enjoyed using the grill outside for some of our meals. There is so much to do on Maui and if we have a chance to go back, we definitely will!

Owner's Response: We're glad you had a great time Lisa! One of the reasons we bought this condo was because the location is central to everything on Maui so we're always happy to hear that guests agree. We always find something new to do every time we visit and our "to-do" list seems to never run short.

Great quiet location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed this condo. It was well stocked and modern. The breeze blew constantly thru the condo and kept it tolerable without using the AC, even for us Alaskans. The kids loved swimming in the well maintained pool and we loved the easy access to the beach for walks and swimming. The kitchen appliances were really nice and the beds and couches were comfy. The location is central to the west end and Lahaina, it's a short drive from the airport, and is close to Kihei for restaurants and shopping. All in all it was a great and comfortable place for our family to enjoy relaxing on Maui. Mahalo Larry and Barb!

Nice & Clean

  • 4 of 5

The condo was nice and clean, had not a lot of "display" items which was perfect for us as we bought a 15 month - and the unit also had a pack-n-play for her to sleep in. The microwave was broken and when I contacted owner they had a new one delivered - even if we really did not need it - just wanted to let them know for the next renters. We were also able to stay past the check out time as our flight out was late at night.

Larry and Barbs Condo

  • 5 of 5

I was more that please with the condo rented from Larry and Barb They were very thorough with all information to make our family stay excellent The location could not have been better. The condo was convenient to explore the entire Island. Most of all it was relaxing and offered the Island culture we were looking for. The beach was excellent for walks or swimming. Finally, the accommodations and grounds were very nice and when we return to Maui this is where we will want to stay.
