Quiet Street, Little Beach where Turtles Love to Hangout & Fantastic Sunrises
We consider our Condo in Maalaea as our 'Hale' in Paradise. It sits directly in front of the blue Ocean with a small private beach and tide pools to explore.
From the Lanai you can watch the Whales put on an incredible show during the months of December through April. Maalaea Bay is a Sanctuary to the Humpback Whales.
The Sunrises coming up over Haleakala are spectacular, every morning it is a different array of dramatic colors. You have no obstructions to block the incredible view of the Ocean and the long stretch of Sugar Beach.
One of the best aspects is that it is centrally located to all that Maui has to offer.
The bedroom is nicely appointed with an appealing tropical flair with a large closet. There is a louvered glass window which allows a nice breeze that aids in a restful sleep.
The kitchen is equipped with everything you should need to make your stay feel like home. It has been recently updated with a new Stove, Microwave and Dishwasher, Granite Counter tops and new Cabinets. The refrigerator also has an ice maker. The upgraded washer is located in the kitchen and the dryer next to the refrigerator with a granite counter top for folding clothes.
The bathroom has also been updated with a tiled walk-in shower with a glass block wall, Granite Counter tops.
There is a Flat Screen TV, DVD, free WiFi, CD Player, Telephone and Broadband Access. We have attached a HDMI cable to the TV so you can hookup your laptop or other device enabling the ability to stream Movies, TV shows and view Photos taken of your Maui adventures. Both TVs are hooked up to Roku Devices for streaming movies and TV shows.
The beach towels and chairs, beach tote and cooler along with bed linens, bath towels, kitchen towels, hot mits, laundry detergent, fabric softener, misc cleaning supplies and light bulbs are all located in the cabinets in the hallway.
The cane couch has a dark floral print with end tables that have small ottomans tucked underneath you can pull out after a long day of sightseeing or a strenuous adventure. Along with the matching cane furniture the wall decorations and prints completes the tropical feeling of the Islands. There are new tile floors through out the Condo.
There is a fenced in Pool and Hot Tub along side an Outdoor Grill. Lots of lounge chairs are located on the lawn. There are also tables and chairs for dining and relaxing with a beverage. A outdoor shower is there to rinse off before entering the pool and to rinse off the sand for those who choose to hang out on the beach located right out in front of the Condo.
The Lobby too has the feel of the Islands . There is a parking lot directly out front of the Lobby with large fragrant Plumeria Trees. No Parking Fees.

About Jim and Cheryl Olson
Our first visit to Maui together to look at Maalaea Banyans, was my husband’s first visit to this wonderful Island. I lived and worked on Maui many years ago and fell in love with the diversity and beauty. I was raised in Kailua, Oahu and have always carried the spirit of Aloha with me where ever I go. The Island life is like no other. We visit Oahu every other year for Christmas to visit friends and family. We now have a Condo in Ruston, with a beautiful view of Commencement Bay. Before this we lived on the Ocean in a small Ocean Front Community called Seaview Estates for 8 years. Both locations are located in the State of Washington.
Jim and Cheryl Olson purchased this Condo in 2013
Why Jim and Cheryl Olson chose Maalaea
We decided that we wanted to spend more time on the Islands, although Kailua will always be in our hearts, I prefer the quiet, laid back feel of Maalaea that reminds us of Kailua of old.
What makes this Condo unique
As soon as we walked through the door I knew I was home. It had a feeling of familiarity and Aloha. The view of the Ocean as we walked down the hallway was striking. We are use to Island sunrises in Kailua but the sunrise over Haleakala is incredible, lighting up the sky with a multitude of colors. Simply breathtaking. We like the location with just a two minute walk to Sugar Beach for our morning stroll and in the other direction just a short walk to shops, restaurants and the Maui Ocean Center. Love all the different plants and trees that surround the Condo and the fact that they are very well maintained, so beautiful. The Condo is located on a dead end street so it is very quiet and relaxing. The surrounding area is secluded with very little traffic of either vehicle or people. Very unlike the busy large Vacation Resorts and their surrounding areas, but it is just a 20 minute drive if you want to experience and enjoy the hustle and bustle. All along knowing you are going to return to peace and quiet.

This has been a great experience. This vrbo really does have almost all you need. It was clean, comfortable, and has a great view. I loved it being a nice, quiet place away from tourist areas. The beach gear is top-notch. I would definitely stay here again. Thanks Cheryl!
Everything we needed!
We enjoyed our stay immensely! The condo was lovely and had everything we needed for our entire stay. The owners have clearly put a lot of thought and effort into making sure that you will want for nothing! (Okay, may want to consider investing in a salad spinner...but everything ELSE we needed was there!!) The location was convenient yet off the beaten path and the view of the bay was wonderful!
Happy that you enjoyed your stay. We love the quite location of Ma'alaea Harbor, especially after a day packed full of Maui activities and sightseeing. We are here now and I can feel Island Style taking over. While we are here I will pick up a salad spinner! I need this kind of feed back to make our Guests feel more at home. Mahalo!
"Our Hale is your Hale"
My wife and I recently stayed at this condo. The inside of the condo is beautiful. We enjoyed watching whales and turtles. The pool and hot tub are nice. There is literally everything imaginable in the condo that you would need. Very central location to get to Wailea and Lahaina, as well as the northside.
Mahalo....I am pleased you enjoyed your stay in our little Maui Hale. I hope you got to see some of our Ocean neighbors, Whales, breaching and playing in front of the Maalaea Banyans. We will be there on the 13th and are looking forward to the show from the Lanai !
Our Hale is you Hale......Cheryl
Centrally located, perfect slice of paradise!
My husband and I travelled to Maui from Toronto and were thrilled to find Jim & Cheryl's Maui Hale! The location is great as it's in between Wailea, Kihea and Lahaina. We loved the grounds of the condo too - the lawns, pool and beach were all very quiet and perfect for enjoying the sunset and turtle watching! The condo itself is lovely - the kitchen has been updated and the space had everything we needed to enjoy your days at the beach - chairs, boogie boards, snorkel gear, towels, umbrella, etc. We loved staying at Maui Hale and will definitely return --- hopefully soon!
Beautiful ocean view condo in central location!
My husband and I celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary with a week long stay at Maalaea Banyans 314. We had never been to Maui before and although Maalaea isn’t very big, we found it to be the perfect location for seeing everything on the island. The condo itself is beautiful with recent remodeling. The lanai overlooks the ocean and I was able to watch whales right from my seat. The place is stocked nicely with some toiletries and kitchen items for our own use which we found very helpful. We would definitely stay again and Cheryl was great to work with!
Happy you enjoyed your 10th Anniversary on Maui. Ma'alaea is a small little Harbor Town, but your right it is a great location to access any part of the Island in a shorter period of time. We love the quiet and peaceful feel of our Maui Hale especially after one of the many Island adventures. Mahalo !
What a great condo, in a gray location. Will for sure be back!
Condo is beautiful! Location is in the middle of all of Maui’s attractions. Nice place to come back after being out all day.
Mahalo.....yes travel time to all the popular busy Maui attractions are shorter with the promise of a peaceful oceanfront hale to return to. I'm happy you agree with us about the location, that was our main attraction and of course the view. First time I walked in to #314 I said to myself this is it!!!!
For the soul soothing beach strolls, you just have a 2 minute walk down Hauoli St., our quiet dead end street and you are at Sugar Beach. You could walk all the way to Kihei on this beautiful, long, unspoiled stretch of beach. On one side you have the ocean and on the other side is the Kealia Wildlife Refuge and Pond. The Maalaea Harbor is where you can find both Award Winning Restaurants and low keyed cafes, there are shops, boating activities of all kinds, the General Store and Deli and the famous Maui Ocean Center and Aquarium. Best of all it is a short walk there from the Condo. The drive to and from the Kahului Airport is only about 12 minutes. The Maalaea area has the feeling of Aloha, far from the busy and crowded areas but centrally located so you can visit those areas, just a 20 minute drive North to Lahaina/Kaanapali and a 20 minute drive South to Makena/Wailea. After a busy day of sightseeing and Island adventures you will return to your quiet and peaceful home away from home. Then when you have a good nights sleep with the help of the breeze and the sound of the ocean flowing through the Condo you will wake up to the beauty of the sunrise above Haleakala.
