About the property

Ocean Front Top Floor With Panoramic Ocean Views! Quiet Pristine Beach

Welcome to Kana'i A Nalu a quiet resort that sits on the ocean away from the road. This property has the BEST ocean front views of Molokini Crater and Kaho'Olawe Island. There is a swimming pool and gas BBQ grills for your use.

In my opinion this property has the Wow Factor! If you are looking for a BEAUTIFUL upgraded home that is nicely decorated with comfortable beds look no further this is the place to stay. The views will take your breath away. You may never want to leave the condo.

This two bedroom two full bath is 952 sq ft. Enjoy sunsets over the ocean and watch the turtles play in the ocean below right from your lanai. This is a great location year round particularly during the winter months; humpback whales can be seen in abundance. This unit includes window A/C in the living room, 4 ceiling fans, and FREE Wi-Fi Internet access for your laptop. This unit is spacious and bright. The kitchen is fully stocked with dishwasher, stove/oven; linens and towels; washer/dryer inside the unit; a telephone for free local calls, cable TV, CD/stereo. The master bedroom has a comfortable pillow top King size bed for your sleeping comfort. The second bedroom has two single beds with pillow tops. This home is a wonderful value for large parties and sleeps four guests. We will allow up to 6 people please ask permission.

This complex sits directly on a 3-mile stretch of white sand beach that spans almost the entire Ma'alaea Bay. This setting is wonderful for a romantic sunset stroll. For the more active person this is a great beach to run on as you can do so for miles in peace away from the crowds. The west end of the beach is Haycraft Park and Ma'alaea Harbor. If there is a big south swell, the wave off the harbor, 'Freight Trains,' can be one of the best in the world attracting expert surfers. Towards the east of Ma'alaea is a great spot for windsurfing, during both trade and Kona winds. This property is located less than a mile walking distance to Ma'alaea Harbor and it is centrally located on the island between South and North Maui.

Every MauiVision property listed is a non-smoking home, this includes the lanai (balcony) and hallways.

About Kathy McCartney

'MauiVision is a business I love because I get to share the Aloha Spirit, the beauty of the land, and talk story with people from around the world. It is nice to know that we can contribute to someone's Hawaiian vacation experience in a positive way. We love to hear back from our happy guests.'

Kathy used to live on the island of Oahu with her US Navy family when she was a young girl. Her family later moved to Southern California. She knew that one day she would return to Hawaii, the place she fell in love with long ago. Taking a leap of faith she purchased her Maui condo June 2002 this was the beginning of fulfilling her prophecy of once again returning to Hawaii soil.

Kathy is an artist who is inspired by the beauty of the islands. She captures the beauty she experiences with oil paint on canvas. 'Painting the beauty of the Hawaiian Islands is another way for me to feel close to this special place I call home. I live in Maui part of the year and painting the Hawaiian landscape and people helps me stay connected when I'm not there physically.'

Why Kathy McCartney chose Central Maui

Ocean front and panoramic unobstructed ocean view from 3rd floor unit! See sunset year round and whales during winter season. Many turtles play in the ocean below it is a great swimming and walking beach. Property is a 2 bedroom 2 bath beautifully decorated, clean, and comfortable home! This property is CENTRALLY located on the island! You are between Lahaina and Kihei/Wailea and other locations on the island.

Quiet condo on Maui

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four (including 14yo and 11yo boys) spent 4 days on Maui and stayed in this condo. Although there is AC, we only needed it for a few hours after arrival since the condo had been closed up for a couple of days and was stuffy. Otherwise the breeze was adequate to keep it comfy for us. The location at the end of Sugar Beach was very nice. The beach was not crowded and was perfect for running in the early morning or walking at any time. Our boys used the boogie boards almost every day and the waves just down the beach provided plenty of opportunity for this. We saw numerous sea turtles during our stay. It was a relaxing visit and we appreciated the ability to extend our checkout since there was not another party coming in the day we were leaving. Would stay here again. Beach Bum restaurant at the marina just down the street was good and very convenient on our last night. Mahalo and we look forward to a future Maui vacation.

Great, central, location "ON" the ocean!

  • 5 of 5

I shared the Kanai a Nalu property with my husband, sister and mother. We had a fabulous time! The condo is extremely well equipped and had everything we needed. It was right on the ocean and the sound of the waves was so nice to hear. The property has very clean. The contact, Windy, while we were there was great, too. We had one maintenance issue and she resolved it immediately. The condo has air conditioning in the living room only, but luckily we only needed it for a few hours on a couple of days and there are fans in all the rooms. The location was great, too, as it was about halfway between Lahaina and Wailea. In fact, its walking distance from the Maui Ocean Center. Beach Bums Restaurant is near there and had great food, including one of the best meals we had while in Maui. We would definitely stay there again!

Great unit...... What a view!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to the Islands, armed with the "Maui Revealed" book as our guide, we chose this location for our stay. Staying on the dry side makes it easier, no doubt. I just can't imagine a better unit to rent. It's at the end of an uncluttered stretch of beach, on the water......with sunrises over the crater.

The unit was very clean, updated and well appointed. You're going to appreciate the air conditioner, a lot of rentals don't have one. The two bathrooms were great for the both of us getting ready in the mornings, we were out the door that much faster!

We spent our mornings on the lanai, having sunrise breakfasts and our evenings with cold drinks, listening to the waves. Hearing the crashing waves in bed at night,...... priceless!

Maui is small enough that you're not far from anything......we just didn't have enough time to do it all. This unit is a great place to base your adventures from.

When we return to Maui......we will rent this place again.

Very Nice, but not 5 stars

  • 4 of 5

I noticed a number of 5 star reviews and have to disagree. While this is a very nice unit and I do recommend it, it's NOT 5 stars. I'm a little reluctant to give it 4, if I could go 3.5, I would.

It is in a great location for experiencing Maui. Very central, easy to get to and easy to get to anywhere on the island. Very quiet, nice beach (but NOT 5 star beach). We saw sea turtles from the lanai often. There are rocks at this beach and you need to go down the beach a ways to get clear of those.

The unit is attractive and well appointed, but it could use a little work. All beds have seen better days and are sagging, both front and back door (to the lanai) need work. The front door doesn't lock unless you slam it and the doorstop on it drops down on its own, blocking the door when you don't want it to do so. The sliding door to the lanai is hard to operate and jumps the track often.

Kitchen is very well appointed and worked really well for us to make breakfasts and occasional other meals. It would be great for families who don't want to eat out for all those meals (the restaurants on Maui are great, but pretty expensive). We stopped at farmers markets for fresh local fruits and made a big bowl of fruit salad to have on hand.

Master bath is great and other bath is good as well. Well appointed with towels and bath products, you don't need to bring much with you - we could have saved some room in our luggage. Nice beach towels too.

Lots of beach toys, including a number of boogie boards (we missed them the first day and added two more boards to the collection). We also added two fishing rods - medium weight spinning rods - we brought our own reels and picked up the rods at Target. Make sure you check over all the stuff in the hamper by the front door and the "kids" bedroom closet before renting or buying anything for beach or pool. Some snorkeling gear and stuff to use on the beach.

Nice size flat screen TV in the living room and large tube type TV in the master bedroom. I couldn't get the remote on the bedroom TV to work the one time I tried to use it though, not that you want to spend your time watching TV while here anyway.

Nice pool area, well maintained, as is the whole property. Two large gas grills and some tables out by the pool for picnics and the like.

We would rent here again, but it's not a luxe unit, or perfect. Good value though.

Paradise for sure!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beautiful, clean condo to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary. To begin, booking it was a breeze and when we got there, we were pleasantly impressed. The pictures don't do it justice. This condo is so clean and organized. Everything is there that you will need. We loved the location, the views, the pool. It was very convenient to the airport, and many other areas that we wanted to visit. We highly recommend this condo. Very, very nice! Thank you for sharing it with us.
