About the property

Oceanfront 1 bedroom+, 1 bathroom with stunning ocean and mountain views.

Welcome to the condo I refer to as my little piece of paradise! If you're looking for a convenient, comfortable quiet place to spend your time on Maui, this is the condo for you. The unit is a short 15-20 minute ride from the Kahalui airport and is centrally located and easily accessible from Kahalui, Wailuku, Kihei and Lahaina. The Maalaea resort area is adjacent to Maalaea Harbor, a small harbor and shopping area from which depart some of the best sailing and whale watching cruises in the world. Watch the boats come and go, the surfers riding the 'Freight Train', one of the world's fastest rideable waves, the sea turtles feeding and, during whale season (November - April), watch the playful antics of the majestic humpback whales, all from the privacy of your lanai. Combine all of this with the beautifully manicured tropical grounds, oceanfront pool and shared gas grills with outdoor dining areas and you will look forward to coming 'home' after a day of seeing all that Maui has to offer.

From the moment you enter the unit, you will be drawn to the spectacular view of the ocean and harbor from the living area and lanai. You're so close to the ocean that you can hear the surf all day and night, even back in the bedroom. Once you're done taking in the views, take a moment to peruse the place you'll call home for the next few days: the California king bed and custom closet in the master bedroom, the newly outfitted bathroom, the fully-equipped kitchen with views of the ocean and breakfast bar dining, the living area with a queen sofa sleeper and dining table and the lanai where, if you're anything like me, you will spend most of your time! When that Maui heat just gets to be too much, come in from the lanai and turn on the air-conditioner in the living room; the view is almost as good inside!

Within walking distance of the condo are some fine restaurants: Beach Bums bar and Grill and Seascape Restaurant. There are also two darling little grocery stores/delis when you just need something quick and don't want to get in the car to run to the store. The Maui Ocean Center, a top-rated attraction in Hawaii (Zagat Survey's U.S. Family Travel Guide) is within walking distance too, as well as Maui Golf & Sports Park, with miniature golfing, rock climbing, bumper boats and extreme trampoline jumping. Additionally, a short walk down the road is Haycraft Park and the head of Sugar Beach, the longest continuous beach on the island, stretching from Maalaea to Kihei and a nice, quiet area with calm water. There's great snorkeling in this area due to the coral reefs located close to shore. And turtles everywhere, all year long.

Amenities of note:

* Washer and dryer in unit

* Hi-def TV's in living area and bedroom, with cable

* Hi-speed wifi internet

* ceiling fans in living area and bedroom

* iron & ironing board

* hair dryer

* beach towels and two beach chairs

So you can choose to go out to see some of Maui's fabulous attractions or stay 'home' and enjoy a day poolside or visit some of the amenities nearby. But no matter what you do, I hope you come to feel that this unit is a comfortable home away from home and that Maui no ka oi (Maui is the best)!

About Teri Ram

I live in St. Louis and try to get to Maui as often as possible. I hate to say it, but I've been coming to Maui for almost 40 years and it really is my second home. With one child in college and another not far behind, I look forward to the time when I can become a Maui snowbird and enjoy the wonderful island life for as long as possible.

Teri Ram purchased this condo in 2014

Why Teri Ram chose Central Maui

When I was in high school (a long, long time ago), my parents purchased a house in Kihei, so I spent a number of vacations on this beautiful island. My parents retired to that house in the '90s and began investing in real estate shortly thereafter. This is one of the investment properties I inherited and it's come to be my secret 'favorite'. I can virtually guarantee that you won't find any property closer to the ocean than this one. Property is not even allowed to be built this close to the water anymore! The unobstructed view of the water is unparalleled.

2 Weeks of pure pleasure

  • 4 of 5

We spent two weeks at this property and cannot say enough to recommend it. Small but quiet, clean pool. Steps away from small private beach. Beautiful ocean and marina view from balcony. You can actually see Sea Turtles from the balcony! They come in every day at low tide to feed on sea weed and algae.

The condo itself is clean and well appointed, everything you need is supplied and well maintained. We'll definitely be back again.

Relax & enjoy the harbor activity

  • 5 of 5

First morning here and the whales & turtles were playing right out side the patio door! The apartment is well-equipped; we especially appreciated air-conditioning and the underground parking.

A month of pure bliss!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently stayed at the Milowai condominium in Maalaea Harbor (Oct 2016). We love this area of the island because it's a quiet little strip of land fronting the ocean, yet a short walk to 2 good restaurants- Beach Bums and Seascapes. This unit is nicely appointed and was perfect for two people. The proximity to the pool which we had to ourselves most of the time is superb. The front door of the unit has a security code lock so you never have to carry keys with you which was really nice. It even had underground parking for our rental car. Though the bedroom is not on the view side, it provided plenty of storage and the bed was really comfortable. We open the window at night along with the sliding glass door in the living room for a wonderful Breeze. There is AC in the unit however we never used it as the Tradewinds kept the unit cool and comfortable. There is a little tiny Beach out front that you can use for picking up shells or playing with young grandchildren but if you want a long walk on the beach you can drive that half mile to the end of the road and the beach park or you can walk the Perimeter Road to the beach which my husband and I did every day in our swimsuits and sandals. If you're looking for a quieter area to stay, yet close proximity to shopping, restaurants, and other amenities, is the place to stay!

A great, quiet island get away.

  • 5 of 5

We just spent eight great days at this terrific condo. Everything I was hoping to find from reading the reviews were there, including the sea turtle greeting committee. This was the low key picturesque get away we were hoping to find.

It's located in small community with a marina (we went on a fishing charter from there...great time), and has a great hangout called the Beach Bum within a five minute walk.

Several larger communities with shopping and things to see are within a ten to 20 minute drive.

The condo itself couldn't be better. There were beach towels, cookware, and a hundred small things inside that made the stay comfortable. It gave us more of a feeling of house sitting for a friend than a staying in a vacation rental.

The view from the lanai was awesome. The trade winds were fantastic. We never needed the AC.

My recommendation is that if you are looking for the slow and relaxed this fits the bill. We had never been to Maui before, and I can't imagine anywhere else that would have been better for us.


A future repeat guest.

Perfect location as a home base for day trips. Well outfitted unit.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in Teri's unit for a week in September. Despite a bit of inclimate weather, we had a great time. The unit was outfitted fully with everything we needed for everything from gourmet dinners to a day on the beach. The location of the unit was ideal for us as we planned to do a number of day trips and it beat the extra 15-25 minutes needed to get to Lahaina or Wailea accommodations. It was wonderful to sit on the lanai and watch the turtles feed right at the beach, and the activity at the marina close by. I would highly recommend the unit. Teri provided us with all the information we would need to prepare for our stay. The unit was clean and quiet and the property well maintained.

Clean, practical and well located

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in this lovely apartment. We found it very well located, well divided and well equipped. The balcony (lanai) is spacious and overlooks the ocean front and a small marina. Parking is convenient and the building is not too big. There is an elevator to carry your luggage. We would not hesitate to rent this place again. The only improvements we could recommend is the addition of a dish rack. It sounds funny but we like to do the dishes every day and let them dry by the sink. There is a dishwasher but it consumes electricity and takes a while to fill up. We were also surprised to see no recycling facilities. There is a bin for bottles in the garage but it is not adequate for other recyclables.

Don't hesitate to stay here, you will be happy you did!

Thank You!
