Condo, 2 Bedrooms + 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)
Aloha and welcome to paradise! We are thrilled to share our condo with you so, you too, can experience the aloha of Maui.
Our 2 bedroom, 2 bath oceanfront condo is located in the village of Ma’alaea on a quiet, low traffic, dead-end street on Ma’alaea Bay, one of Maui’s best kept secrets. At one end is a 5-mile sandy beach, the longest walking beach on Maui. At the other end, a small harbor where you can take whale watching and snorkeling trips, sunset cruises and more. Enjoy the security and privacy of a deluxe 4th floor unit (top floor). Just 65 feet from the ocean, we have unsurpassed views of the ocean, Haleakala volcano, Molokini Crater, and the lights of Kihei and Makena at night. You can also watch the turtles, dolphins and monk seals frolic in the bay from the comfort of our private lanai. During whale season, watch the humpbacks that come to Ma’alaea Bay to have their calves. Enjoy great snorkeling, swimming and fishing right out front.
The living room and master suite face the ocean and each have sliding doors that open to the lanai. From the master suite, the sounds of the ocean waves will lull you to sleep. We have recently updated our unit with all new tile floors, new Silestone counters, bamboo cabinets in kitchen and both bathrooms, new appliances and a totally remodeled guest bath. Both bathrooms have lovely tiled, walk-in showers.
Amenities include central air conditioning in the living room and both bedrooms, washer/dryer, flat screen TVs in the living room and both bedrooms, high speed internet, Wi-Fi, fully stocked kitchen, queen size beds, towels and linens, hair dryers, beach towels, beach chairs, beach mats, shade shack, coolers, snorkel gear and water toys.
The village of Ma’alaea is centrally located and provides easy access to the most popular areas on the island. It is also the driest part of the island and rarely rains. Light trade winds help keep it comfortable year round. Sugar Beach, the longest, undeveloped beach on Maui is uncrowded with beautiful white sand. You can easily walk the beach to the Kealia Wildlife Refuge and boardwalk. This beach has many off-shore reefs which protect the beach and provide safe swimming, even for children, and wonderful tide pools to explore.
At night, walk to the Ma’alaea shops and some of Maui’s best restaurants. Attractions within walking distance include a farmers market, small shops, Maui Ocean Center and Gift Shop, Ma’alaea Bay Harbor for snorkel and dive trips, putt putt golfing, rock climbing, and motorized squirt boats.

I have been diving in Hawaii since 1977. If you dive, you'll love it. If you don't, you need to try it! If diving isn't your thing, try snorkeling in front of our condo or go on a snorkel trip to Molokini and Coral Gardens.
Why Owner chose Maalaea
We have vacationed on Maui for many years. We purchased our condo on Maui because it allows us to relax in a quiet location. If we want to visit some of its famous tourist areas, we are able to do so within a short time from our central location in Maalaea.
What makes this Condo unique
Besides the great weather, we enjoy watching the whales, turtles and seals from our lanai. Nearby, we can see the boats as they leave Maalaea Bay Harbor. We love our morning coffee as we watch the spectacular sun rise over Haleakala. We believe that this location provides us with a most relaxing and fulfilling island experience - no matter what month we visit.

Look no further!
What a beautiful home! Comfortable beds, great kitchen, and the view is unbeatable. We p thoroughly enjoyed the turtle visits each day and watched them from the comfort of the lanai. I've stayed all over this island and I don't need to look any further. Short drive drive to all my favorite places, great rate, and turtles galore right off the lanai! What a special unit.
Best View of Ocean in Maui
This is definitely the best location on Maui to stay. You can go either way to all parts of the island from here. The ocean view is phenomenal and it is great to listen to the ocean at night from the main bedroom. Bed was very comfortable and it had all accessories you would need in the kitchen.
Thanks again for such a wonderful stay!!!!!
Mahalo, we are so happy that you enjoyed your stay!

Absolutely top notch!! We have been to Maui several times and this is the best condo we have stayed in and, certainly, we will be back. For beauty, sounds of surf, whale watching, total relaxation, this is the condo. Much as I hate to entice more people who might take our preferred time slot, the Smith's deserve all of the accolades. Mahalo.
Mahalo for your very kind words it was our pleasure to share our Maui home with you.

Fantastic in all aspects
The pictures and reviews don't do this place justice, because you can't hear the waves breaking just feet from your open doors or smell the overall freshness of this part of Maui. It's centrally located so it's easy to get to all the sightseeing things. Whale watch boats leave the harbor and then sit so they can pick which whales they want to go look at. They may end up out front of this place because it's a wonderful place to view whales. I was on the lanai Skyping with my daughter when I noticed some splashing very close by. I turned on the back camera and she said she could actually hear the pectoral fins slapping the water, not to mention see it on Skype.
This was our 9th visit to Maui, usually spending at least 2 weeks and we have never had as nice a condo, location or owner to work with. Hopefully this small piece of paradise will not become as "busy" as everywhere else.
Immediately before we came here, we spent a week at a Wyndham on the Big Island and it paled in comparison. Since we have been to most other islands numerous times, the next time we come it will be here for a extended stay so we can just relax and enjoy paradise.
Another couple stayed with us the first week and there was plenty of room for everyone. The four of us ate every meal on the lanai and had plenty of room. They also loved it here and, I'm sure would concur with this evaluation.
Having a washer and dryer in the condo was a big plus. Next time we will cut back on the amount of clothes we bring.
We appreciate your wonderful review of our unit
Oh What A Place
I visit Maui one to two times per year and have rented through VRBO several times. On this trip I brought my daughter & granddaughters and needed to rent a unit that was centrally located due to only having 8 days to show them Maui. I love the Ocean center, Pacific Whale Foundation and sugar beach so this location was perfect. Working with Rick was great due to short notice on my part & quick response on his. This unit had more than enough room for the four of us, very clean and comfortable (great beds & big shower) and nicely decorated. The unit is furnished with everything you need to ensure a great vacation. Will definately book this condo again and we all recommend this unit to all who read this review. Large lanai was perfect for meals and watching the whales right out in front of the unit all the time. Walking on the beach will take you as far as you want to go with lots of shells star fish and treasures to be found. Lovely unit with great owners who take pride in their rental unit and in making your vacation great. Thanks again to Rick & Debbie for sharing your vacation rental with my family.
Absolute paradise found
This location and this unit is now our favorite and we plan to return again and again. The view from the Lanai was incredible. We were just feet off the ocean. The whales were all over and right in front of the unit, what a show! The unit is very clean and well maintained it was actually better than we expected. The owner was very helpful during the reservation phase and was great with additional information. We had a great time and will be back next year!
