Property description

You can't get closer to the Pacific ocean than you can in this bright spacious top floor condo. The sand is steps away from the lanai. You have breathtaking views of the Maalaea Bay, the grand Haleakala volcano and the sparkling lights of Kihei at night. Enjoy whales jumping 100 yards off shore during whale season and beautiful waves breaking on the shallow reef beyond the beach. This condo is conveniently located within walking distances to beach parks, restaurants, shopping and fabulous boating and yachting at the Maalaea Harbor.

Our bright and comfortable 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo is just over 1,000 square feet of thoughtful furnishings (renovated Dec 2014) above a beach that provides a stunning view from your private lanai. Enjoy the oceanfront pool for the ultimate in relaxation. The kitchen of our condo is well equipped for those wishing to cook, washer and dryer in unit allows you to pack less clothing and do laundry (while you are out at the beach of course…)

We have flat screen tvs in the living room and both bedrooms, and a large collection of DVDs for your viewing. We also have a great collection of books, board games/kid games/cards and binoculars for your use in the condo. We recently purchased 3 snorkel sets and a 2 high-quality boogie boards to add to our collection of beach towels, coolers, beach umbrella and other beach toys! .

While the ocean is steps away from the property line, the best swimming beaches are a mere 300 yards away, just take a left when you hit the beach and head towards the sandy area where the condo complexes end....(look for the palm tree with no fronds for the gentlest surf with a sandy bottom)!

The Kanai A Nalu has a BBQ area close to the pool. Hawaii’s natural trade winds keep the temperature just right – although we do have an air conditioner, just in case. The complex has an elevator and offers ample free parking.

The Kanai A Nalu (“Gentle Breeze”) is located in Maalaea; a place often called 'Maui's Best Kept Secret”. From our top floor lanai, you look directly onto the ocean, a mere 30 feet in front of you – this isn’t ocean view or even beach view – it’s BEACHFRONT, OCEANFRONT!! Your Maui accommodations can’t get much closer to the water than at the Kanai A Nalu. You can listen to the ocean waves as you sip your morning coffee or evening beverage out on the lanai or let the rhythmic sounds of the ocean lull you to sleep at night…

Enjoy quiet and yet undiscovered Maalaea Bay with views of Molokini Crater, the Island of Lanai, Kihei and Wailea.

Car: Necessary

Right out front of the Kanai A Nalu is the start of one of the longest sandy walking beaches on Maui (4.5 miles from Maalaea to Sugar Beach Resort). A five minute walk away in the other direction takes you into Maalaea Harbor where you will find a small grocery store, deli, farmers’ market, fine dining restaurants, the Maui Ocean Center (rated Maui's #1 tourist attraction), the Pacific Whale Foundation, miniature golf, shopping - and probably best of all - most of the ocean activities available on Maui (sunset dinner cruises, deep sea fishing, snorkeling tours, and whale watching from November to April).

Year Purchased: 2014

About: We love the islands of Hawaii. We're still working on visiting them all! I love being on the ocean. I enjoy the snorkel/scuba day trips on the catamarans the best, although I think I enjoy the ride to/from almost as much as the snorkeling! We live in the SF Bay area and enjoy the convenience of traveling to Hawaii whenever we can get away.

Why Maalaea, HI, USA:
We traveled to Maui in August of 2014 and stayed at Kanai a Nalu. We fell in love with the 'off the beaten path' vibe of Maalaea Bay! The complex is so well cared for, such lovely, well maintained grounds. We liked that there are only 4 floors, not a high rise that can seem too much like a hotel. The layout of the units makes both bedrooms very private. The oceanfront pool gives you a choice...ocean or pool...or both? :-) We love the central location of Maalaea Bay...so easy to get to/from the airport. Busy Kihei and its beaches is only a 10 min drive, if that. Lahaina is a short 20 min drive. A trip on the Road to Hana begins a short drive away. As does Haleakala crater. Being right in the center of the island makes everything so easy! We just knew we wanted a home here.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
There's no beating the views from the oceanfront lanai (or from the master bedroom window, for that matter!)...the ocean is literally just below and we love leaving the lanai doors and windows open, especially at night, when we can fall asleep with the sound of the waves. Pure bliss. While the ocean is steps away from the property line, the best swimming beaches are a mere 300 yards away, just take a left when you hit the beach and head towards the sandy area where the condo complexes end....(look for the palm tree with no fronds for the gentlest surf with a sandy bottom)! Our unit is light and bright and sunny. Happy colors on the walls. Soft, cozy new area rugs make walking barefoot so comfy. The in unit washer/dryer makes packing for a trip so easy...why overpack when you can take a few things and wash them as often as you need? And we love love love being on the top floor....not only is the view of the ocean even better, but no one stomping around overhead. So quiet!
