About the property

Non-Smoking Deluxe 2 bedrooms, 2 en-suite bathrooms, beachfront with oceanview

Non-Smoking Deluxe Unit - Sleeps 4

Located on Maalaea Bay, Kanai A Nalu is called “Maui’s best kept secret.” Quiet, romantic and tropical, it’s located at the north end of Maalaea Bay in South Maui. A spectacular setting for your Hawaiian vacation. Enjoy this luxurious, well-appointed oceanview condo that is one of only four ground floor units directly facing the ocean. Full of modern conveniences and tastefully decorated this deluxe, remodeled condo is waiting for you. Enjoy the wonderful views of beautiful landscape and the ocean breezes from the lanai. Smell the gardenias growing right outside your door! Relax at the beautiful oceanfront pool, swim or snorkel in the ocean or stroll or take a 4-mile leisurely walk to Kihei on the beach, which is just steps away. Greet each morning with spectacular views of Maalaea Bay, Molokini Crater, the island of Lanai and the 10,000-foot Haleakala volcano. Enjoy the sparkling lights of Kihei at night and the incredible moon as it turns the ocean silver with it’s soft moonlight. 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. It won’t take long to feel deeply relaxed in Paradise with not a care in the world.

Watch green sea turtles bobbing up for air and rolling in the surf, even sunning themselves on the beach. In the winter months (Nov-April) you will have a front row seat to breaching whales as they come back to the islands to give birth and nurse their young in the warm Hawaiian waters. In the summer months during a good south swell, you can watch surfers on the legendary surf break “Freight Trains”, one of the world’s fastest surfable waves.

This condo is conveniently located within walking distances to beach parks, restaurants, shopping and fabulous boating and yachting at the Maalaea Harbor.

A 5 minute walk from the condo takes you to Maalaea Harbor where you will find a small grocery store, deli, craft market, restaurants and the Maui Ocean Center (Maui’s #1 tourist attraction), the Pacific Whale Foundation, miniature golf, shopping and most of the ocean activities available on Maui (sunset dinner cruises, deep sea fishing, snorkeling tours & whale watching).

This bright and beautiful condo has 2 bedrooms both with private en-suite bathrooms. This is a non-smoking unit designed for 4 adults. The master bedroom is a King and the guest room is 2 Twins. The kitchen is well-equipped for those wishing to cook or you can use the BBQs by the pool which is there for your convenience. There is a large flat screen tv in the living room with a DVD player and flat screen tvs in both bedrooms. For those of you with laptops, you can enjoy a beautiful desk and complimentary wi-fi. In the desk cabinets you will find a great selection of books to read and DVDs to watch. When you are ready for the beach, you’ll find boogie boards, beach chairs, cooler and beach towels to use.

Ready to experience this Paradise? You won’t want to leave. As Mark Twin said “I went to Maui to stay a week and remained five. I never spent so pleasant a month before, or bade any place goodbye so regretfully. I have not once thought of business, or care or human toil or trouble or sorrow or weariness, and the memory of it will remain with me always.”

Why Stephanie Cleveland chose Wailuku

My family has been coming to Maui over 30 years. Most of that time has been spent here at Kanai a Nalu on beautiful Maalaea Bay. This is such a special place. In fact, it’s referred to as “Maui’s Best Kept Secret.” The grounds are beautiful, the people are friendly and the ocean and beach are right outside your door. We always preferred to stay in ground floor units when we visited because they were more accessible to everything and made our stay much easier. No hauling food and luggage up in elevators. We just drove up to our front door and walked in! When I discovered this unit in 2012, I was excited! Ground floor units usually didn’t become available that often and this one was special. It directly faces the ocean, is beautiful and has a wonderful view. My family loves Maui and we love this place. We wouldn’t want to be anywhere else and neither will you once you discover it. I hope this completely remodeled unit brings you as much pleasure, relaxation and happiness as it has brought me and my family.

Excellent location spot.

  • 5 of 5

Great spot for family vacation and the condo is beautiful. Love the walk down the beach everyday snorkeling and swimming. Near by restaurants and bars for happy hours to watch the sunset. Stephanie is very responsive and helpful. We love to come back here again.

Great location, great beach access, nice to be on ground floor...nice 2 bedroom unit

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time there. Really good access to the beach and well-located to get to the various activities that Maui has to offer. Maui is getting very busy though with planes coming in every few minutes all day long. We really enjoyed the property as it was peaceful and had a great BBQ and access to the beach. Kitchen well provisioned with tools, but would be nice if some of the basic staples like olive oil, spices, etc. were left from previous guests. I know it is hard to manage this, but Hawaii is very expensive. I guess it is our way of helping out the locals as I am sure the cost of Living is high for them.

That minor issue aside we had a great time and did lots. Almost every time we snorkelled we were swimming with a Sea Turtle. Even in front of the unit. Played golf, went to Hana, went to the volcano, up to and past Lahaina. Lots to do...not enough time....

Wonderful location.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in January with another couple. The condo was very nice, clean, and a perfect location for us. The condo was just like the photos showed. The owner answered all our questions promptly. We would most definitely stay here again.

Loved the location!

  • 5 of 5

The location of the condo was perfect for us. It’s fairly central in terms of accessing Kīhei and the beaches in the south, but also not too far to get to the west beaches like Ka’anapali. One thing to be aware of is that Maalaea is quite windy, in fact we learned that it is one of the windiest harbours in the world. It didn’t bother us too badly but it did make swimming a little chillier in the afternoons as the wind picked up.

We really liked the ground level unit, for convenience. We were able to park right outside our unit as well.

Having the pool right outside and then the ocean just a few steps farther was amazing! The ocean here was not the best for swimming, and the surf was very high during our stay, making the beach immediately outside the condo basically non-existent at times. But if you walked about 100 yards down the beach got huge and beautiful, and there was almost no one else around.

Stephanie was great to deal with and she was quick to reply to any questions we had before we left.

We would absolutely stay here again!

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay Rachelle! The ocean here is one of the favorite surfing spots on the island. When the surf is optimal it's not unusual to see a large number of surfers from the harbor to Kihei. They are fun to watch! I hope you will come back in the future!

Exactly what we were looking for

  • 4 of 5

My sisters and I visited in January. The location was great because it was central and made both sides of the island accessible. The Condo was a great size and was exactly what we were looking for. My favorite part was it being on the beach and being able to hear the waves while sleeping. It was also great having a washer and dryer in our unit.

Owner's Response: Glad you all enjoyed your visit. That's one of my favorite things about the condo too....hearing those waves at night that send me softly to sleep!

There is no question that this is hidden gem on Maui!

  • 4 of 5

Stephanie’s Condo was spectacular! Arrival was smooth, premises were super clean and perfectly appointed. We settled in quickly, truly home away from home. Everything we needed was provided and then some. Access to the beach was an added bonus as many locations don’t necessarily have access, as we discovered. Although we are now at the Four Seasons Resort Maui we find ourselves wishing we were back at the Condo!!! Our PRIVATE oasis. Thank you so much for allowing us to build family memories!
