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.

Lovely place to stay

  • 5 of 5

There were four adults in our group and we found the condo comfortable. We had our morning coffe and breakfast every morning on the lanai as we watched the whales in the bay

Great location

  • 5 of 5

The location was great! We had a wonderful time exploring Maui. Whale and turtle watching everyday from the lanai. The condo was clean and well equipped. Short walk to the park and then a very relaxing walk along the beach to Kehei. The management at the condo units were helpful and very welcoming.

Yes, it does matter where you stay!

  • 5 of 5

We've heard fellow travelers say "it doesn't matter where we stay because we are hardly there". We beg to differ...every minute of our vacation is hard earned and we want to enjoy even the down-time. We appreciated the easy maintenance, comfy beds, well-equipped kitchen/linens and convenience of this lower floor unit. The waterfront lanai put us in the front row for awesome sunrise splendors, whale shows, turtle viewing, rainbow watching and marina waterfront action. We were celebrating a special family event and our host was so kind in our dealings with us. Thank you for the perfect place, we hope you will have us back again!

Whale watching amazing from lanai!!!

  • 4 of 5

Spent a week in this main floor condo which is in a quiet area! Watched the whales every morning and afternoon from the lanai!!! LOVED THAT!! It is neat to be in harbour and watch boats going in and out. So many extras to make your stay a pleasure such as several toiletries, a few pantry items, coffee, beach chairs (some under spare bedroom bed) a kitchen well stocked with appliances and also the condo is oceanfront. A 2 minute walk to beach bums for a meal when you don’t feel like cooking and a mini grocery store 1 minute away. Great location! The communal pool was a great temperature and we also enjoyed communal barbecue. The only minor problem we incurred was the trade winds didn’t cool the condo off much. There is only one large fan and a window air conditioner in main area as well as ceiling fans. However we are from Sask so like it cold lol. Still we feel likely the best place to stay on Maui!!

It was great!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying here, perfect for 2 couples. We each had our own bathroom and comfortable beds. The view is great for drinking morning coffee and you can definitely see some whales and their blow holes! The location was ideal because it was in the middle of the island so we could get to the sunrise and Hana more easily. Miss it already!

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.
