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 Wailuku

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.

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

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.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Mary for a comfortable relaxing home for two weeks as we enjoyed all that Maui has to offer. As we sipped our morning coffee on this second floor unit lanai, we watched the multitude of boats leaving the harbor as well as the spectacle of whales breaching the surface. Morning always included a stroll on the beach starting directly in front of the building. Our one and three year old grandkids loved the shaded sandy beach here and followed up with the outdoor shower and a swim in the pool. Further down the beach is an area where sea turtles came into a protected natural breakwall area and our kids could wade in without the worry of waves. Beach Bums was our favourite restaurant offering great food, and entertainment all within walking distance of the condo. It was only a short drive to Kehei for groceries or Kahalui to Costco. This location is the perfect mid island location making travel everywhere so convenient. Hopefully we will be back soon.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review Sue. So happy you and your family had a wonderful vacation and I agree…the coffee tastes great being sipped on the lanai while watching the whales performing their morning exercises. Our beach provides a great setting for walks as well as easy access for ocean swimming and snorkeling. Because of our condo’s close proximity to neighboring towns, vacationers have an opportunity to experience the many beautiful things Maui has to offer without driving a great distance. Thanks again for staying with us and we look forward to your return visit. Mary

Great experience!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I came to Maui for a destination wedding and were looking for a centrally located condo with all the amenities of home. We found it here and were really impressed with the tastefully done decor and overall clean condition of the unit and property. The super close and easy to traverse beach access was definitely a plus. The entire experience was excellent and would absolutely recommend this condo!

Absolutely gorgeous accommodations in paradise. Mary is a pleasure to deal with and always provided prompt, courteous and professional communication. The condo is amazing! Clean, beautiful decor and stocked with everything you need for your vacation on Maui. The location is centrally located to Lahaina, Kapalua on one side as well as Kihei, Wailea/Makena on the other side and about 20-30 minutes from the Kahului airport depending on traffic and any road detours. You will have a huge smile on your face as soon as you arrive and walk into the second floor unit. Mary has really done some great work updating the condo and keeping these fresh for her guests. The condo provides updated bathrooms with large showers, updated bedrooms each with their own wall mounted TV, a comfortable living and dining area and a beautiful kitchen with a spacious counter and new appliances along with everything you need to cook a meal in or at the poolside grilling area and then watch the beautiful sunset from the pool/Pacific Ocean view lanai. Not all condos are created equal, I can assure you of that. We have been traveling to Maui 2 times per year since 1996 and Mary has made sure of that with her hard work, investments in the condo and dedication to provide her guests with great accommodations! If it needs an update or needs to be replaced Mary takes care of it promptly regardless if its the coffee maker or the kitchen stove. I would recommend Mary and her condo to anyone planning a visit to Maui. You will appreciate her care for her guests and every bit of this condos amenities during your stay and make sure that you show Mary your appreciation by following the house rules and taking care of the condo and the nice things she has available for your use that Mary has worked so hard to provide during your stay in Paradise. Mahalo Mary! We look forward to seeing you in the future and staying with you again! Hau 'oli Makahiki Hou!
