About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Ocean front beautiful condo

Welcome to our luxurious Maalaea, Ocean & Beachfront newly remodeled 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom Condo. Kanai A Nalu is one of 8 some complexes on our quite street. This lovely unit is situated on famous “Sugar Beach”, a beautiful and quiet white sands beach that stretches for miles—all the way to Kihei. From the lanai, enjoy the sound of the surf, as well as 180-degree spectacular, breathtaking views of Maui’s south coast. You can also enjoy views from the kitchen and second bedroom of the mountains and sugarcane fields. In the morning, watch the sunrise dancing off the peak on Haleakala, one of Hawaii's oldest volcanoes. Each winter you can witness the seasonal migration patterns of the humpback whales from the lanai.

This relaxing newly remodeled, air-conditioned unit also has cooling ceiling fans throughout. There is Wireless Internet, Cable TV’s, with netflex, a DVD player, a stereo system, and a phone with free local calls. The condo is fully stocked with linens and towels, including Beach towels. Free parking is provided, just steps away.

You will like the spacious, fully furnished bedrooms, one with a comfy King Size bed and the other with a Queen Size bed and their own bathrooms. Enjoy an absolutely stunning view of the endless sparkling ocean from the master bedroom. Both bathrooms have beautiful décor. Both bathrooms have tiled step in showers.

Enjoy the updated, full size kitchen. It is complete with all appliances, including a microwave, dishwasher, washer and dryer, all cookware and all the utensils needed to cook a wonderful meal. It is only a ten-minute drive to a large grocery store in nearby Kihei. If you want to dine out, there are several excellent restaurants with both ocean and harbor views that are located within a few minutes walk, just down the street.

Our building is located on a tranquil and peaceful dead end street. Swaying palms, lush tropical gardens, BBQ’s and a pool complement the grounds. When it’s time to cool off, enjoy your favorite drink by the pool or take a snorkeling adventure with sea turtles in the warm waters in front of this lovely vacation property.

The condo is only a 12-minute drive from the airport. Best of all, Maalaea is centrally located between the towns of Lahaina and Wailea, and is only 20-30 minutes away from Makena, Kapalua, and Kaanapali. This affords you the endless recreation Hawaii is legendary for, but with the quiet serenity only the small village of Maalaea can bring you. It is no wonder why many consider Maalaea, Hawaii's 'Best Kept Secret.'

Nearby Attractions:

Right up the street from the condo is Maalaea village. The village includes the popular Maalaea Harbor. At the harbor you can take a snorkeling, sunset or dinner cruse. Next to the Harbor is the renowned Maui Ocean Center, Maui's #1 tourist attraction. It is a top rated aquarium that everyone will enjoy. Next to the aquarium are the charming Harbor Shops, shopping center. It features some wonderful stores, a very good ice cream parlor, and several 5 star restaurants. Beach Bums is right there at the harbor with ocean views along with other restaurants . At the entrance to Maalaea are a water sports park and two miniature golf courses that the entire family will enjoy.

About Mary

I bought our unit about 20yrs ago. I had been visiting Maui for about 10 years when I found this well kept secret place.

I am retired Police Officer with 30yrs of service. I found this my break from the hectic work I did. I am now working part time at the PD doing community services. I come here to relax and forget. I can relax here or or partake many of the near by activities.

Mary purchased this condo in 1995

Why Mary chose Central Maui

I love it because it is close to everything but it is no way over crowded. Our grounds are manicured beautifully, the complex Kanai A Nalu is peaceful, the owners and guests alike are friendly. I can walk on the beach and not step over hundreds of people. Sometimes I can even have it all to myself. You are only 10 - 15 minutes from most places and things. ( airport, Kihei, Wailea, Lahina, Kanaapali, surfing, boating, fishing, golfing, hiking, snorkeling, scuba diving, zip lining, ATV's, horseback riding.) You name it its close!

During whale season you can whale watch from the lanai or the beautiful grounds.

What makes this condo unique

You can walk to the harbor for boat trip ( sunset cruises, fishing trips, scuba diving, snorkeling and whale watching ) Miniature golfing, bumper boats and rock climbing are right next to the Ocean Aquarium which is fantastic. Thre are also several nice restaurants and shopping right there along with a small grocery store.

Reviews

Living it up in this Maui Ocean Front Condo!

VRBO Bear stayed here

Jul 29, 2010

I love Maui and enjoyed staying at this condo in Maalaea! It is beautifully decorated with lots of island knickknacks and pictures. The condo had plenty of room for family or friends with two bedrooms to spread out in. You'll find the view from the balcony is simply breathtaking, particularly when the sun is going down. Maalea is a little town situated around the harbor of Maalaea where you can catch any number of sea excursions – snorkeling, fishing, whale watching, dinner cruises or pretty much anything to do with the sea. There’s also an aquarium to visit and several restaurants and bars, all within walking distance. Even better, the condo is located at the end of Sugar Beach, which stretches for miles between Maalaea and Kekei. If you can’t find solitude on that beach you didn’t look very hard because much of it is unvisited. I took a long walk along the beach and once I got past a couple of hotels and condo complexes I had the beach almost completely to myself. The area is quiet and peaceful, a great place to get away and unwind. But it’s also centrally located so it’s very close to all of the attractions you’d want to see on Maui. We drove up the volcano and along the Road to Hana and also to a walk to the harbor for a snorkeling trip to Molokini - a small crater and marine reserve just off the coast. One night we walked just a few doors down and ate at the highly rated Waterfront Restaurant. It was all so close! The owner was gracious and helpful, providing links and phone numbers for local restaurants and tours after asking me what I might like to do and even suggested a couple I hadn’t thought of. I had a fabulous time in Maui, especially in this wonderful ocean front condo! The VRBO Bear

This is a beautiful place to stay anytime!!!

  • 5 of 5

I luv coming to Maui and Ma'alaea! Ma'alaea is basically located in the middle of everything. The biggest advantage is having the opportunity to stay in the Kana'i A Nula condo's especially the one I stay at. This is so beautiful and is up graded to make your stay so enjoyable. You don't have to worry about anything staying here. The layout-perfect for me, clean, I luv the amenities, the condo's location, everything is perfect. It's so relaxing here! Just listening to the surf and waves...watching the whales in the distance and seeing the sea turtles, it's so refreshing. I will continue to come to this fabulous place and condo always- a trip is planned already for next year!! Mahalo and Aloha

Beautiful and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

I have been to both of your units over the past 5 years. They are very nice. It makes you feel your are in paradise. The units are decorated in tropical decor. The views are breathtaking. During whale season you can whale watch off you own private lanai! You are centrally located yet very private while you are there. You dont have to compete for beach, lawn or pool space. It is very relaxing. A home away from home with out the work. Everything thing except your clothing is there for you. I cant wait unitl I go back. I love it.

Beautiful Beach Front Condo

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this beautiful condo. The decor is warm, modern and comfortable. The owners thought of every detail in booking and in the directions needed to navigate the condo. Everything we needed was at our fingertips.

The grounds are also beautiful! Just steps to the ocean and to the barbecue and pool. Simply lovely.

We hope to come back again.

Thanks again for staying with us.

Lovely Condo thoughtfully stocked!

  • 5 of 5

Mary's condo is lovely, the rooms are spacious and comfortable. The attention to the little details that really added up. The kitchen was fully stocked with every kind of gadget and pan and sharp knife we needed! The appliances were all new and worked well. There were plenty of supplies such as laundry detergent, dish soap, toilet paper, etc. The pool was delightful. The location was wonderful, central to everything!!! The bedding was comfortable. My 18 year old slept on the double blow up mattress and thought it was extremely comfortable. There is only a single window air conditioner in the living room and I was so afraid it would not get cool enough to sleep. However, we opened all the windows and the cool breezes made sleeping very comfortable. The pool was very nice. The unit is centrally located and convenient to everything.Mary was a delight to deal with from beginning to end. We thoroughly loved our stay here and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a lovely place to stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you. So glad you enjoyed your stay. I make every effort to keep the amenties stocked so my guests feel like its their home away from home. Opening the windows provides great cross ventilation which makes a comfortable setting to sleep. I love the fact the pool is just a few feet away from the beautiful ocean. Thanks again for staying with us.

Great condo in central location!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this lovely condo for 9 nights and enjoyed every minute! Very spacious and comfortable 2 bedroom. There was only 2 of us so we only slept in the king bed which was beyond comfortable. Slept like babies! Very quiet condo complex as well. The only slight downfall was the A/C was on an hour timer so if you kept the windows closed at night it could get a little stuffy. But that was a very minimal problem and we will be back!

Owner's Response: I am so glad you enjoyed your stay. Im sorry about the timer. The old timer that had a longer time period broke and thats all I could find at the time. I will look for a longer one. Without a timer I found that guests would turn it on and leave for the day. Electric if VERY pricey there. My bills were over 1k a month for it. I would have to raise the rates a lot to cover that. I want to keep them down for my guests so they can afford to come and enjoy paradise. Again thanks for your input and reminding to look for one. Looking for to your next stay.

Amazing Beachside Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Mary's condo for 7 nights, and we are so glad we were able to book it for our stay in Maui! She made sure that we were comfortable and it was always easy to contact her before, during and after our stay. The place is so clean and the location lets you walk right to the beach easily. I liked how it wasn't right on the sandy part of the beach so we were away from the crowds. Would definitely recommend!
