Guests rave about their stay at our condo. Pictures cannot fully convey the peaceful, positive energy of this special unit. Please check out youtube Maalaea Kai Maui Condo For Rent - Oceanfront View From Lanai for more information.
We are dedicated to ensuring our guests have a wonderful time.
We do not charge a damage deposit. In addition to the nightly rental fee you pay us ONLY the 13.42% Hawaiian Occupancy Tax. Cleaning costs are $130 and apply to all bookings.
VRBO software will not allow us to specify the number of guests as two adults and two children—so we are forced to put down that we host 4 people. But that is NOT FOUR ADULTS—we made a deal with our gorgeous condo: we would not overburden it with too many adults at once, and it would maintain its fresh, good looks and sweet disposition. And we—both parties to that agreement—have honored our promises, and our beautiful condo thanks us every time we return!
We NEVER require any damage deposit—we never charge for broken things or swim gear that does not make it back from the beach. Accidents happen, and you should be able to use our condo and our swim gear with full enjoyment—not always fearful of a damage charge. All we ask is to simply let us know so we can replace the item for our next guests.
Yes, our Condo UNIT ITSELF is actual OCEANFRONT (unlike 80% of the other so-called 'oceanfront' listings wherein they count the condo building as oceanfront, but their unit is located on the side of the building, affording ONLY A VIEW of the ocean). Make sure any other condos you are considering are IN FACT RIGHT ON THE OCEAN. Consumer group research showed OVER 80% of condos advertised as 'oceanfront' or the like, were NOT. The building was on the ocean, but the units advertised as “oceanfront” either faced the back side, or offered just a view of the ocean. Our unit IS RIGHT THERE, literally fronting the ocean—just 60 feet away.
Ocean WAVES crash just BELOW LANAI—60 Ft.—Located RIGHT ON Maalaea Bay, Maui, Hawaii, USA. Convenient Central Maui, 20 minutes from Kahului Airport, Kihei, or Lahaina.
Accommodation is a second-floor condominium that sleeps 4. One bedroom with a queen-size bed, and the beautiful living room couch is a convertible, queen-sized sofa bed. One full, modern bath.

Detailed Background Information:
You will have the peaceful sound of the ocean crashing ashore just 60 feet from your fully-equipped, lighted lanai; a restful sound that resonates throughout the spacious living and dining areas. You will breathe in the gorgeous unobstructed daytime view of all of Maalaea Bay, Molokini crater crescent, Kihei, and Mount Haleakala. Stunning sunrises over Mount Haleakala (for those few willing to get up at that hour, it is worth it).
The evenings are just as special; enjoy the soft romance of warm breezes, the tiki-torch-lit shoreline, the sight of a CLEAR MOON-RISE over majestic Mount Haleakala, the light shimmering across the bay.
You will appreciate this one-of-a-kind location. Our Maalaea Bay Home is on the one and only residential street in Maalaea Harbor. Enjoy strolling down this quiet tree-lined sidewalk, listening to the birds, and inhaling the delicate fragrance of plumeria blossoms.
At the end of the road is Heycraft Park, just a short walk from our home. This is where you will either enjoy swimming in sparkling clear waters or start your walk along four miles of beautiful, uncrowded, sandy beach bordering the Kealia National Wildlife Refuge. The walk from our condo to the park is 1/4 mile walk; or you can drive since there is a small lot at the park.
The wildlife refuge was established in 1992 and is home to endangered native water birds, and hosts migratory ducks and shorebirds in fall, winter, and spring. This refuge provides 700 acres of some of the last remaining natural wetland habitat in the State of Hawaii. Kealia Pond is nearly 250 acres when full. The refuge is adjacent to Kealia Beach, which is a nesting ground for the endangered hawksbill turtle.
More than 31 species of birds, such as the endangered Hawaiian stilt and coot, and migrant waterfowl and shorebirds such as the Pacific golden plover use this refuge. You can approach the refuge from your walk along the ocean, or use the roadway to access an interpretive kiosk and boardwalk along the beach and refuge mudflats.
In summer months, the Refuge Pond shrinks, and many more shorebirds congregate here to take advantage of food exposed as the pond recedes. As the pond shrinks, fish are crowded into the remaining water, making them easy prey for black-crowned, night herons.
Another advantage of the CENTRAL LOCATION OF MAALAEA BAY is the proximity of so many attractions, all within easy walking distance. You can stroll to the nearby FIVE-STAR restaurants, the Maui Ocean Center and Aquarium, the Yacht Marina with tour boats for deep-sea fishing and whale watching tours, The Pacific Whale Foundation, and the Maalaea Harbor Village shops and restaurants.
Within the Maalaea Bay community of ten condominiums, Maalaea Kai, the building of Our Maalaea Home, stands out as an outstanding facility with well-groomed grounds. Barbecue is a delightful experience, with three grills and dining area just on the shoreline. Relax in the large heated pool, while enjoying the view of the crashing waves.
Back at our home, you will find everything spotlessly clean and completely furnished for all of your needs. Our quote letter to you will include a list of pantry items we provide—in addition to beach/swim gear you may need.
The AIR CONDITIONING is ducted from outside to BOTH the front and rear of our condominium, with INDIVIDUAL REMOTE CONTROLS for each room, affording desired, quiet comfort. FREE BROADBAND Internet plug-in cable hookup is provided. Compare to all other one bedroom units: most have a single 'window shaker' machine air conditioning only.
We have maintained our home as a SMOKE-FREE, pet-free environment for the enjoyment of our guests. Please do not smoke on the lanai inasmuch as the smoke travels to other units. There is no smoking on any of the grounds.
