About the property

Luxurious, 2 bdrm duplex (1390 sqft), walkout lanai to Kamaole II Beach.

Anchor Cove D2 is a single story property perched at the beachfront on the beautifully landscaped grounds of Hale Pau Hana Resort. Originally the resort restaurant, the building was reconstructed as a side by side duplex. Its prime location, large size, and proximity to the ocean makes this one of the most unique and sought after properties on Maui. Watch video of Anchor Cove D2 on YouTube (Hale Pau Hana D2)! Check us out at and Like Us on Facebook!

Luxurious ground floor accommodation, just steps from the beach, that includes 1390 sq.ft. of living space, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, well equipped gourmet kitchen, comfortable living/dining room, private laundry, 4 zone AC, flat screen cable TV, free WiFi, free long distance telephone calls to USA & Canada, private lanai & outdoor furniture, common heated ocean side pool, common gas BBQ's, free parking.

Set apart to the front northside of the resort, it's peaceful and private. The large, west facing lanai offers unobstructed views of Molokini Crater, the islands of Lanai and Kahoolawe, the west Maui mountains, Kamaole II Beach and of course the ever engaging Pacific Ocean - whales and turtles, paddle boarders and outrigger canoeists. Early risers wake to the pastel hues of dawn on the oceanscape, and, as 'pupu' time arrives Maui's incredible sunsets are on full display.

Walk out the patio door and you're steps away from beautiful Kamaole Beach II. The hard sand near the waters edge is great for walking, running, playing games, or just frolicking in the water. Go boarding or snorkel with the turtles in the reefs. And, because there's limited nearby public parking & access, its not crowded! For some fitness, stroll or run the wonderful beach/trail system which extends all the way to Makena.

It's so peaceful, and with nothing but beach and ocean in front of you, its easy to forget about the many shops, stores, restaurants and pubs which are conveniently located just a short walk away - past the office, across the parking area and onto South Kihei road. Try sticky buns and coffee at the Cinnamon Roll Place across the street!!

About Karen Olson

Our family resides in Alberta, Canada. We’ve stayed at many places on the island. Best of them all, a duplex unit at Hale Pau Hana was but a dream until summer 2013. When it came on the market we jumped at the chance to make our dreams come true! We look forward to sharing this place with our grown children, grandsons and large extended family and friends. We hate to see it sit empty and so are happy to rent it to people like you, who love Maui as much as we do!!

Karen Olson purchased this condo in 2013

LOCATION - consistently sunny weather, great beach, gentle ocean, good beach trails, short drive from airport, close to the best shops-stores-restaurants-golf courses.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so very much for allowing us to stay in your home away from home. It was awesome. Definitely, the best place on the island, in my opinion. The area (Kihei) was perfect and had everything we needed within walking distance or a short ride. The home had all the essentials that were needed.....beach chairs and towels, boogie boards, a well stocked kitchen and so many other things. It was just like home except we were in Maui. You can't even beat the view. Absolutely amazing. Words or pictures can't even describe it. Only being there in person can. I can't believe it is over. It went so fast. If we ever make the trip back to Maui, we are definitely staying back at your home. There is no other place. I will definitely be recommending your home to anyone I know interested in visiting Maui. They would be a fool if they stayed else where.

Maui's finest

I have stayed in Anchor Cove D2 in the past and remain amazed at the beauty of this spot. Watching the sunsets from your private lanai is a fabulous experience. Karen and Lloyd keep their piece of paradise immaculate and keep you wanting to go back! Thank you

Vacation of a Lifetime

  • 5 of 5

We can't say enough about the beautiful Anchor Cove condo. There is no place we would rather stay...on any of the islands. Not only could we see the ocean from out the back window, but the mirror on the living room wall allowed us a view of the entire beach. And not only any beach...this beach is absolutely stunning and uncrowded. The kitchen is well appointed and made cooking at "home" a breeze. The location alone is worth every cent...add to that comfortable furniture, every beach toy you could want, and the most beautiful lanai and lawn to relax to relax and enjoy the sunset. Thank you Karen and Lloyd for your excellent customer service which made everything so easy and uncomplicated. Hope to be back next year.

Great Location & Condo!

  • 5 of 5

There couldn't have been a more perfect condo and setting for our vacation! The condo faces West for beautiful sunsets every evening and is at water's edge, yet elevated enough to be above the direct activity on the beach, with a nice grassy lawn directly in front of the lanai. The beach, however, is perfect for walking as it has beautiful soft white sand and the ocean waves are relatively calm and enjoyable. The condo is clean, very nicely decorated and updated, including a fabulous gourmet kitchen with everything you need to enjoy every meal "right at home"! The complex is nice and quiet, yet the other guests are friendly and come out to celebrate every beautiful sunset! Our favorite day off the property was when we went sport fishing with Captain David Hudson, owner of Finest Kind Sport Fishing in Lahaina - what a great day - we caught a "Rainbow Runner" and cooked it for dinner the next night in the condo - what a treat! If you don't go fishing - the local Safeway has great fresh Mahi and Ahi to also cook "at home" - honestly, we rarely left the property - this was such a great, relaxing vacation in paradise! The rental process of this beautiful condo was very easy, thanks to Karen's very timely response to all communication. We are already planning our next trip and would love to rent it again!

Perfect vacation villa

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a wonderful stay at this condo. It was perfect in every respect. The location was great, close to the water (beach was soft sand, and calm waters), and a bit removed from the main lawns on the resort complex, so was quiet and peaceful. It was the perfect place to enjoy the beautiful Maui sunset each evening. The condo was clean, well furnished and equipped with all you would need to cook, bbq, and enjoy the beach. Karen was great to work with and extremely accommodating and helpful. We hope to plan a return trip to this unit very soon.

Perfection in Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Everything you could possibly need with incredible ocean views and beach access just steps away.

Walk in, grab the Tommy Bahama beach chairs and begin to relax. From sun up to sun down beauty surrounds you and after dark the sound of the ocean is super soothing. Not a care in the world. Watch the dolphins and turtles from your lanai. We are so spoiled after staying at Anchor Cove D2 that we don't want to stay anywhere else and have already booked our next stay. Don't miss out on this gem.

Couple local things we loved. Trilogy snorkel trip to Molokini leaving from Maalaea Harbor. Zip line at Maui Zipline Company. So fun with great detail to safety. Kids are welcome so our whole family could enjoy an adventure together.

Thanks again to Karen and Lloyd for sharing their piece of paradise with us.
