About the property

Private oceanfront lanai, free WIFI, beach chairs/towels, umbrella, toys, beach!

View from the condo:

Our oceanfront condo features breathtaking panoramic views of Maalaea Bay, Haleakala and the enchanting twinkling lights across the bay from Kihei and Wailea at night. Feast your eyes on the turquoise waters, enjoy the balmy breezes, the gorgeous sunrises and moonrises from the comfort of this lanai. Enjoy the amazing views of the Molokini, Kahoolawe and Puu Kukui, the West Maui mountains. From December to April, the Maalaea Bay is alive with humpback whales breaching and is one of the few places in the world you can hear them serenading potential mates. Whale sightings typically take place from late September until mid May. During the summer months, you may see the incredible wave called Maalaea, also known as the “freight train”, one of the fastest and longest rideable wave in the world. All these incredible wonders of nature from your private oceanfront lanai.

Condo amenities:

This charming ground floor condo has all the comforts of home. It is air conditioned and has cooling ceiling fans throughout (with the tropical trade winds the air conditioner is rarely used). It offers a 48" flat screen TV, a DVD player, a stereo system, complimentary high speed internet and WIFI and an assigned parking stall for our guests, linens and towels, including beach towels, beach chairs, beach umbrellas, picnic coolers, snorkelling gear, noodles, boogie boards and more. The kitchen is fully equipped with cookware and cooking utensils to prepare your meals. The spacious master bedroom has a super comfortable king-sized bed, a private ensuite with a large walk-in shower, a spectacular ocean view and private access onto the lanai. The second bedroom has a queen-sized bed with a full bathroom outside its doors in a private hallway. The sofa turns into a queen-sized bed to accommodate family members. Swaying palms, lush tropical gardens, BBQ grills and a pool compliment the grounds.


Watch the sea turtles being playful and riding the waves just 20 steps from the condo and if you enjoy walking the beach, within walking distance, there are miles of pristine, undeveloped beach. The condo is a 15-minute drive from the airport. It is centrally located between the towns of Lahaina and Wailea, and is 20-30 minutes away from Makena, Kapalua, and Kaanapali. This affords you the endless recreation Hawaii is legendary for, but with the quiet serenity only the small village of Maalaea can bring you.

Nearby attractions:

Maalaea is a peaceful little village situated on a scenic boat harbor, central to just about everything on the island of Maui. The village offers excellent restaurants, cafes, ice cream parlour, wonderful shops, snorkeling tours, sunset or dinner cruise. The General Store is an excellent place to head for an early morning stroll for coffee and pastries. Maalaea is also home to the Maui Ocean Centre Aquarium, Maui’s #1 tourist attraction, and the world-renowned Pacific Whale Foundation for their whale-watch tours. Beach Bums along with the other restaurants overlook the harbor with an ocean view. At the entrance to Maalaea, there is a water sports park and two miniature golf courses that the entire family can enjoy. For the golf enthusiasts, there are multiple golf courses within 20 minutes of Maalaea.


June, July and August are popular months for the whole family to visit Maui. Family-friendly acitivities within a few minutes walk or short drive - relax on the white sandy beach while watching the little ones (and grown-ups) build sandcastles, visit the largest tropical aquarium, snorkelling, stand up paddling, boat trips, whale watching excursions, submarine rides, surfing, parasailing, family-friendly zipline (5+yrs), lots of little towns with lots of shops and eateries. You and your family will enjoy staying at this oceanfront condo while exploring some of the island’s most gorgeous spots.

Enjoy the island and all its wonderful moments! You and your family will return home with memories that will last a lifetime.

What makes this condo unique

We chose this location because it is quiet, elegantly comfortable for all ages, romantic and you will never forget the magnificent views of the beach, jumping whales, and the calmness of the sea turtles riding the waves to shore for their morning breakfast.

Our condo faces a quiet sandy beach that is well enjoyed by children and adults. At this beach, you can set your lawn chairs on the grass or the sandy beach and enjoy the calm bay and spectacular ocean views. We have been visiting Maui for 30 years and chose Ma’alaea Yacht Marina for everyone’s consideration and enjoyment. The serenity is paramount for all ages and the oceanfront beauty is unmatched by any other locations we stayed at. This location has numerous attractions and is centrally located for travelling to other parts of this island paradise.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful view. Great location. Well appointed condo. Friendly people. Clear instructions. Easy check-in/check-out. Everything you could ask for. (It probably didn't hurt that we had perfect weather while we were there.)

If you have a party of 4 or less, looking for a centrally located place that's near, but not overwhelmed by the Maui attractions, this is the place to be.

Overall, excellent central location, well appointed, if somewhat dated, apartment in good shape

  • 3 of 5

First off the great stuff. Fully stocked, everything down to the salt and pepper shaker is here. No running out for anything. Loved the view too.

Loved and hated the location. Being on the marina was great in the sense that you are central to everything but it is worth noting that the marina is a working marina and gets going at 430am in anticipation of the snorkelling and fishing trips that start at 730. The local fisherman coming down to fish off the breakwater at 4am takes some getting used to as well, they are quiet, but wear headlamps and walk right out front your bedroom window. The real drawback, and it's a bit unfair because there is nothing the owner can really do about it, is the airplanes. The unit sit's right under final approach and when the trade winds are blowing north to south, which is most of the time, it sets up a wide turn over the bay that finishes with the nose of the plane pointing right at you, by the time they are overhead I could count tires on landing gear (maybe 200 hundred feet at the most). Hawaii air is in at a very consistent 430 am and delta finishes off the night around 12am or so. If your not a noise person this is great unit with excellent location and set up, however if your a light sleeper like me, might be better to look at a quieter spot.

Owner's Response: You are definitely more than a light sleeper as we have been there every year and never have we felt we were living through what you described. We love the location, it feels like paradise, but I am sure paradise has its drawbacks. Airplanes are a part of reaching paradise.

Million dollar view!!!!

  • 4 of 5

The unit is very comfortable. Location is ideal. However, needs some upgrades. Suggestions would be new linens, toaster and change locks on patio. Could lock yourself out very easily. The view is spectacular. Best ribs we have ever had at Beach Bums. Great vacation.!!!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review on our "Million Dollar View"! We absolutely love the spectacular view of the ocean, especially when enjoying our morning coffee or favorite evening drink. As for your comment, we do replace the linens, towels, appliances, pots and pans on a regular basis. We also appreciate you letting us know that the lock may need attention. Glad you enjoyed Maui and all it has to offer!

Lovely condo with great views of the ocean. Location is very central to all of the island.

  • 4 of 5

We loved it! The only issue was terminex had sprayed and there were roaches on the floor. It would have been nice to know so we could air out the condo first.

Nice place, peaceful. Just as pictured.

  • 5 of 5

This condo worked well for our family of four. One teenager slept in the spare bedroom while the other slept on the hide-a-way bed. A window air conditioner worked efficiently to cool the space to a comfortable level. We enjoyed meals on the patio overlooking the ocean.
