About the property

Sandy Maalaea Beach! Ground floor Peakaboo Ocean view from tropical garden lana

Quiet, non-through road, on sandy Beachfront! There are many choices on Maui to stay but one of the best parts of this rental is its location… This is a serene, quiet getaway, hidden from all the hustle and bustle, yet close and convenient to sightseeing and activities. Ocean and Beachfront Condo, you are literally steps from the ocean. And of course, Free WiFi, High Speed Internet, and Smart HD TV!!

Centrally located to the airport (10-15 minutes), Lahaina/Kaanapali (15 minutes), Kihei/Wailea (10-15 minutes) and most popular activities on Maui. Costco, Walmart, Grocery Shopping are all within 10-15 minutes. This location is also a favorite spot for the whales to hang out and feed their young. It has an incredible view of neighboring Islands. Step out to snorkeling, swimming, stand up paddle boarding, beachcombing and beach strolls that go unobstructed for 5 miles, Beautiful Sugar Beach!!

Quiet & private unit (640 sq ft) just steps from the beach. The unit has fresh tropical decor, a remodeled, fully equipped kitchen with granite counters, newer appliances and cupboards (2013) and a surf board bar/island. The Bath/Shower is European style shower with inlaid river rock floor. Travertine flooring throughout the unit. 120 square ft. lanai and a landscaped yard extend the living area. The unit has two entrances. The front condo entrance and a patio sliding door that open to the lanai are bordered by palms, magnificent Red Ginger and tropical flowers. The airy cottage decor is comfortable and uncluttered with room to relax while you watch your favorite shows on the 42' flat screen TV. Enjoy your meals inside or outside. Bedroom has queen sized bed as well as a queen sized pull out sofa in the living room. Although the unit is considered garden view, you have a small ocean view from the lanai and it is literally one unit from direct ocean front, the pool and the BBQ grills. It's the best of both worlds; the quiet privacy of your private lanai or 25 steps to the oceanfront and crescent pool.

About Tracey Cannon

Having old time family ties to Maalaea, it's very special to own this property. 75 years ago, my husband's great-grandmother lived on this very land. Since she was Norwegian, it was even more unusual. We are now so pleased to be able to share this gorgeous property with others. Its a laid-back, hidden-gem that is reminiscent of the Hawaii of times past. Yet it is centrally located for those that want to explore the rest of the island and all its wonders. Yes, it is a place that you will always want to return to....

Why Tracey Cannon chose Wailuku

Hono Kai Condo in Maalaea is a laid-back, hidden-gem. The property is on a sandy beach that extends all the way to Kihei, over 4 miles of gorgeous, walkable beach. Our Condo is at the Quiet end of a dead end road, next to a small Park, and beyond that is Kealia Pond National Wildlife Refuge! Perfect for nature lovers. It's ideally, centrally located for those that want to explore the rest of the island and all its wonders. It is a place that you will want to return to again and again...

What makes this condo unique

No where else on the island will you find the loveliest of beaches in such a quiet yet convenient location! Enjoy your morning coffee next to the ocean, as you are just steps to the Beach. You will love sitting in front just watching the turtles play in the ocean waves. See whales breaching right from the property or take a whale watch boat tour to see them up close. The soothing sound of the ocean will lull you to a peaceful sleep. Maalaea Village and Maalala Harbor are within walking distance, about .4 miles down a country lane. Restaurants, Bars, General Store, and access to Whale Watch Tours, Charter Fishing, Dive, Sunset and Snorkeling Tours, all leave from the harbor near you. Don’t miss the world class and Maui Ocean Center with it's Open Reef Aquarium, and the Pacific Whale Foundation. It is easy to get around and you feel safe, a short walk from your condo. A visit to Maui should be on everyone's bucket list, you will want to return here again and again!

Amazing find!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay! The central location was perfect, the place was spotless and had everything we would need, and then some. I loved that it was shaded and stayed relatively cool within the condo. Also, being steps away from the beach was jusf fantastic. We miss it already.

Perfect place to stay!!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is so beautifully decorated! She put a lot of thought and consideration into her amenities. Everyday we were steps away from the beach and the pool and fully equipped with beach chairs(that have coolers and you can carry as a backpack!!) water shoes, and boogie boards. The kitchen is well stocked with equipment and she even had laundry soap for us to use! The fans and air conditioner were a nice plus too. There is a big sliding glass door that walks out into a tropical lanai where we ate. The other cool thing we enjoyed was this condo is centrally located so we were a short jaunt to Kihei and a quick jaunt to Lahaina, and a straight shot from the airport. The beach was fantastic! You get everything from sandy spots to swim in to rocks where we snorkeled:) there was tons of turtles everyday too!! Would definitely LOVE to come back!!! Thank you so much Tracey!!!!!!

Wonderful private beach getaway

  • 5 of 5

This place is perfect if you want to get away from the rat race. Walking distance to the harbor shops so you have supplies close by. Private Sandy Beach within 25 steps. I loved the little private patio area to sit and sip coffee or eat. Mostly we sat out by the ocean and watched the turtles play. The decor is thoughtfully done in Hawaiian theme but not overdone or touristy. Very cute. I loved everything about this place and definitely recommend it.

Fantastic stay!

  • 5 of 5

Tracy was so nice and helpful to us. We couldn't have enjoyed our stay more. The weather was great, and the view was killer. If you're on the fence about this one because you're worried that you're not close enough to the water, fear no more. It's really just right there. So cool! Would give 10 stars, but there's only five. :D

Absolutely loved our stay

Wonderful! and an excellent Value

  • 5 of 5

The unit was clean, fresh, and updated. Everything was as good or better than described! The beach is laid back, sandy and uncrowded. Excellent central location if you want to go to other parts of the island.

Thank you Tracey!
