About Arnold Montes; Erin Pederson

Hi there,

We are Dwayne, Gisele, Amie and Justin from Alberta; also Erin and Arnold from Saskatchewan, Canada. We bought our home away from home in July 2014 because we fell in love with Hawaii immediately.

During our time in Maui we found relaxation with our little piece of paradise. We purchased this condo because it offers everything we look for in a holiday, including ease, location and relaxation.

We purchased new appliances and updated the condo because we understand that the fewer things there are to worry about, the easier it is to enjoy paradise.

Our one request is that while you are using our condo as your home away from home, please keep it clean and care for the items provided so that others can enjoy the property as well.

Arnold Montes; Erin Pederson purchased this condo in 2014

Why Arnold Montes; Erin Pederson chose Central Maui

We chose Kanai A Nalu mainly for it's location. It is on a nice quiet stretch of beach that is close to plenty of activities. It is about a 5 minute walk to the Maalaea Harbor marina where you can sight see, whale watch, scuba dive, snorkel, deep sea fish, or catch a sunset cruise.

Our recent stay at the condo has let us discover more of the area and found that turtles are a regular sight while walking on the beach or snorkelling.

The property also has several added conveniences such as the heated pool, tanning loungers, 4 BBQ's (2 charcoal, 2 gas), and elevators.

The trade winds also provide a refreshing, cooling breeze, so that only on calm days do we have to turn on the air conditioner. It will give you the full tropical feel and you'll forget the mainland right away! It also provides a good break for the waves which makes our part of the ocean a little calmer to swim in and for children to play.

The condo also has a great view of the Molokini crater, Kihei and Haleakala mountain. Centrally located, it is only a 10 minute drive to Kihei, about a 20 minute drive to Lahaina, and only a 15 minute drive to Kahului.

What makes this condo unique

Having stayed at other properties on Maui, and through our hunt for our home away from home, we noticed that some properties were getting a little dated. We made sure to update the condo with fresh new paint and decor, and new appliances; including a full size washer/dryer, as well as an ice and water in the fridge door.

Being a family of travelers, we also added some conveniences such as the USB charging stations and the hair dryers.

All we ask is that as our guest, is that the beach toys and items are cleaned prior to returning them back to the condo. There are wash stations around the condo complex and it helps with keeping the items in good condition for other guests to use. It also helps with the complex plumbing if we could minimize the amount of sand that is ran through the pipes. Thank you.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Good morning Erin,

Thank you! The honeymoon was amazing; I absolutely loved Maui. The condo was great; always nice to stay somewhere comfortable rather than a hotel. We loved that the condo was beachfront and that we had access to a beach so near by rather that driving everyday. Trevor and I made some friends around the condo and were able to hang out in the evening and enjoy and cocktail while BBQ'ing - who also gave us a lot of tips and suggestions where to go. We did a lot of touring around the Island, so we were really only at the condo in the evenings; but that view from the deck was amazing.

Thank you for all the tips/suggestions you provided to us prior; it really helped when we were navigating the Island and deciding what to see and do. We didn't go to many restaurants (cooked a lot as we were gone during the days), but we did go to Kemo's in Lahaina where we were able to watch the sunset from our table & Coconut's in Kihei. I would definitely go back to both places. We also walked to Beach Bums one evening for cocktails; our waiter and waitress were a lot of fun. We also had a cinnamon bun at Kihei Cafe; wow!

We did a lot of beach hopping. We went to Big Beach & Little Beach - which I didn't realize was a nude beach lol. We also went to almost every beach in Kihei. It was amazing that you had the beach chairs, umbrella and boogie boards - definitely extended our stay at the beaches. The weather was amazing - over 30 every day!

I would have to say Lahaina was my favourite part of the Island; we went quite a few times to walk around the shops, for supper and to watch the sunset. It was a nice drive from the condo too - great location. We unfortunately didn't get to a Luau as we dropped the ball and didn't buy tickets far enough in advance.

We drove to Hana. I was a little disappointed when we got to Hana (not much to see), but the views and sights on the way there were amazing. My favourite part - swimming at Twin Falls. Trevor also really liked the trip to the aquarium. We also did the lava tunnels - Trevor loves this kind of stuff; I would have been happy lying on a beach.

Thanks again for letting us stay at your condo. It was an amazing honeymoon!

perfect location; beautiful unit

  • 5 of 5

We had a hard time trying to decide where to stay during our first trip to Maui--it turns out that this little condo unit in Ma'alea is the PERFECT place to use as a base. It is quiet, has a great beachfront location (a wonderful, long walking beach right next door), yet is also a quick drive to both the Kihei (10 mins?) and Lahaina (20 mins) areas, and an easy drive to the upcountry and Haleakala.

The condo itself is, as others have said, very very well stocked--much appreciated for a week-long stay. We cooked at home a few times, and used the coolers and other beach equipment a couple of times as well--it was great!

We were there during peak whale-watching season, and saw several whales right from our balcony, which was a fun, unexpected treat.

Checking in was easy, but we *did* have to call 3 times to get in touch with the local management company to get the final steps on the instructions. (It was after hours, and he said he was helping others, but it took nearly 30 minutes to talk to someone. Not a deal-breaker by any means, but after 12+ hours of travel from the US East Coast, it could have been a little easier--all we needed was the keycode, which someone could have texted rather than make us wait--something to think about for the future.) The owner (Arnold) was a HUGE help and very responsive, even sending some very practical advice ahead of time about where to go shopping. (Be sure to bring your Costco and Safeway cards!) THANK YOU!!

I would DEFINITELY stay here again if my plans take me back to Maui....and I hope they do!

Great condo!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was everything we were hoping for plus more. The condo complex is quiet and well kept. We used the outdoor grills often and found that very helpful. We also loved having such a private beach front right outside the building, and our view of the ocean from our balcony was amazing. There was plenty of parking available and the condo is easily within walking distance for adventures out of Ma'alea Harbor. We rarely used the A/C as the trade winds are so amazing in the evening you can open the doors and the condo is cool in minutes. The condo is perfect for families! (although it's perfect for anyone...I would book it without the kids too!)

The condo was stocked with EVERYTHING you could possibly need for a vacation. Beach gear (towels, snorkeling sets, boogie boards, umbrella, coolers, etc.), Lots of extra bedding and towels, Kitchen has absolutely everything you need, washer/dryer in unit was awesome and even came with plenty of laundry detergent!

A huge thanks to Arnold and the other owners for sharing a little piece of paradise with us! I would absolutely recommend the condo to anyone.

Great Condo and Experience

  • 5 of 5

Inadvertently hit four instead of 5 stars. This is a five star condo without a doubt. Our family of 5 used this condo for a neighbor island staycation. It was tastefully decorated, extremely clean, and well equipped for a wide variety of activities. We checked in without a hitch and the experience was great all around. The pool was nice and we used the community gas grills to make dinner several nights. The building was quiet and was a great getaway to relax. Will will definitely stay here again next year.

Great Maui getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Loved staying in this condo. Although we did not do any cooking, the kitchen is very well supplied with pots, pans, utensils, you name it, they have it! Also has a washer & dryer and all appliances are clean & new. I travel frequently in Hawaii and the mainland and usually stay in vacation rentals since I don't like the tourist atmosphere of hotels. This condo rates high in my list because of the cleanliness, fairly quiet, nicely decorated, convenient location, and most of all the awesome oceanview. I've stayed in another condo in Ma'alaea two years ago but thought this one gave us more privacy since my friend & I did not have to share the bedroom & bathroom since it is a 2 bdrm/2 bath. Arnold responded to emails quickly and the rental company also handled requests and questions politely and efficiently. Mahalo for making our girlfriend weekend maika'i and our husbands thank you too!
