About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Lauloa Oceanfront Condo is located on the north end of beautiful Maalaea Bay in South Maui, fifteen minutes from the Kahului Airport (Maui's main airport), and twenty minutes from the popular resort areas of Lahaina, Kaanapali, Kihei and Wailea. Our condo is only 20 feet from the oceans edge with spectacular, unobstructed views.

Lauloa is located off a small street a good distance from the Highway and is very quiet. Typically the only sounds you hear are from the surf or tradewinds blowing through the palms. Maalaea Village is located with in walking distance from Lauloa, where you can find a deli, a general store, four restaurants, shopping center, and a miniature golf park, all situated around the small boat harbor where you can hop on a boat for fishing, snorkeling and whale watching tours.

The latest addition to the village is the Maui Ocean Center which is Hawaii's newest and largest ocean aquarium and marine educational center with displays.

During spring and summer one can often find good waves for bogey-boarding and surfing right out the door. Shore fishing is also possible. During the winter months you can view the humpback whales right from our oceanfront condo, it truely is amazing!

About Eva

Our beautiful condo on Maalaea Bay was our first home on Maui. We loved living there, however after having two babies and running a home business we felt we needed some extra space. We moved to a home in Wailuku, only 10 minutes away.

Eva purchased this condo in 1986

Why Eva chose Wailuku

We choose to buy our first home in Maalaea, because we loved living right on the waters edge. During Whale season we can see them everyday and hear them from our bed at night. In the summer Maalaea gets some of the best surfing waves in the world. The tradewinds blow most of the time keeping it much cooler and comfortable than say Kihei or Lahaina. And being centrally located on the island, you're not far away from anything.

What makes this condo unique

Direct oceanfront, only 20 feet from the ocean edge

Guestbook comments from the owner

The condo was just perfect. It had all the essentials needed for a home away from home. The location is what we prefer..next to the ocean and very quiet with a breeze to keep us cool. The neighbours were friendly and very helpful. We had a wonderful holiday and would go back in a minute. thankyou Maui for the excellant emergency preparedness during the Tsunami warning.

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

This place was the BEST place for ANY family!!!! My daughter and I spent the best week of our life in this lovely condo. We aren't interested in glitz and glamor....we just wanted to have a fantastic and relaxing week in paradise. THIS WAS IT!!!!!! It was beautiful, easy living. A majestic view with comfortable ease. The location is centrally located and offers a welcome feeling when coming back from a day on Maui. Easy access to Maalea harbor and all of its activities....and only minutes away from the tourist spots of Kihei and Lahaina (without being in the middle of the hustle and bustle). Making coffee and watching the sun rise over Haleakala each morning was the highlight of the day. If you are looking for a no stress alternative to hotel living on your vacation.....I HIGHLY recommend this wonderful property.

Amazing Rental A+++++

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for cozy, comfortable and quiet, THIS is the place. We rented this unit for 4 adults hoping It would fit our needs and we were blown away by all it had to offer. The location was fantastic, close to everything but away from the crowds. To wake up to a beautiful sunrise was heavenly. The ocean front offered snorkeling daily and we had sea turtles hanging out at the sea wall everyday. We had booked a couple of boat tours and it was so nice to walk to the harbor, which only took about 5 minutes. The off street parking was a real plus and we had no problems finding a spot in the lot. The condo had every thing we needed for our stay, although we could have used a pizza cutter, but that is pretty minor compared to the fully stocked kitchen we enjoyed. There were plenty of towels and even beach towels were provided. It was nice to have the washer and dryer available so we could pack lighter. There were chairs, beach mats and umbrellas available for our use, which was great on our beach days. I can not say enough about the owner, Eva. She went above and beyond with suggestions, communication, and all around response. She was kind and generous with her help and advise. She was the type of owner we all hope to rent from. We hope to visit Maui in the future and hope that this unit will be available again. We HIGHLY recommend this unit for future visits. Thank you for making our first visit to Maui one that we will forever cherish.

Great location, beautiful view!

Condo was very much as described. It was also nice to have some supplies to start off with the first day. Within walking distance to the beach, great restaurants, Maui Ocean Center, and shopping. Great neighbors in the complex. Will definitely stay here again.

Can't beat this place! View, location... perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This unit was everything described, exactly (maybe even better) than pictured. Comfortable, clean and fully stocked (including a hair dryer). Beds were very comfortable, I'm picky about pillows and I loved them. Towels provided for both bath & beach. There were basic spices, as well as some coffee, coffee filters, and other foods possibly left by previous guests. The parking was easy, and very close to the unit.

Our family of 5, with kids aged 16, 14 and 12, had a fabulous stay here.

I might hesitate to stay here with very small children if I had kids who tend to wander, as there is no fence on the sea wall, and they could literally run out of the unit and fall off the wall onto the rocks below.

We loved the central location, as we enjoyed exploring the entire island, and this unit is basically 30-45 minutes or LESS away from almost anywhere you'll want to go on the island (of course the road to Hana is longer).

Other than receiving pertinent information before our arrival, I did not have contact with Eva, as there really was no need. A nice perk would have been maybe a little note of recommended local grocery stores, restaurants, etc., but it was easy enough to figure things out on our own, so no big deal there. Something we didn't know, but discovered on our last day there when we happened to explore the lobby, was that we were supposed to register our car for the parking lot. We didn't have any problems, so maybe the posted note is old and/or it is not regulated.

In summary, a FABULOUS place and would definitely stay here again. We certainly hope to!!
