Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3)
We are living in Maui since 1993. In 1996 we bought the condo so our family from all over the world can visit, be close to us and enjoy the beautiful location. I work in the public school system as a school based behavioral health counselor and manage the unit after work. I really enjoy having and sharing this beautiful place.
Owner purchased this Condo in 1996
Why Owner chose Maalaea
In Maalea you can walk everywhere. It is a short walk to the yacht harbor, the ocean center with all the shops, restaurants, etc, and a short walk into the other direction leads to a long beach, stretching all the way to Kihei. Maalea is central to the Island and it is easy to reach many other different beaches, interesting locations and also shopping within a short drive.
What makes this Condo unique
It is just soooooo relaxing. This unit has the most beautiful ocean view from the Lanai. You can watch whales in the winter and all year round see the majestic Haleakala across the bay. We had many family meals right there overlooking the ocean, listening to the movements in the water, looking for turtles with the binoculars that are available also for our guests during their stay.

Wonderful Ocean Front Location
The location is this property's main appeal. The building itself is getting a little run down and could use new outside carpets and doors, especially the screen doors. The unit was spotlessly clean and had everything one could need to be self sufficient for the mon/th I was there. Also, there is a lot to be said for waking up to the sun rise and watching it go down from the lanai every day as well as waking and sleeping to the sound of the waves. And I loved the ensuite laundry. Having said that, the unit is a little bland. It could use a coat of paint and some .upgrading, especially the kitchen. There are holes in the lanai screen and the air conditionner could use a good cleaning outside as all the vents are full of dust. Also, the beach towels had holes and frayed hems and the beach chairs were so uncomfortable, I had to rent one. I called Maalaea Rentals for information on turning off the living room ceiling fan and I never heard back from them nor did they let me know how to clean the stove top, another question I had. Having said all that, I would recommend it to someone on a budget but would not stay in that unit again myself.
Our time couldn't have bee better. Quiet, relaxing, friendly neighbors and great location
Comfortable condo with a spectacular view
We stayed for a week long vacation in Ma'alaea and it did not disappoint! The condo was clean, centrally located with free parking and the bed was very comfortable. We were on the deck as much as possible enjoying the view of the ocean, sunrise and sunset and the many turtles swimming in the bay. A short walk down the road was a fairly quiet beach which we took advantage of multiple times. We highly recommend Karin's property and hope to return again for another stay.
I am so happy you enjoyed your stay and we will be glad to welcome you as guests again.
This is an amazing condo with ocean front view! Absolutely beautiful!! I enjoy watching the sea turtles swimming everyday. Close to everything!! The bed was big and comfortable. Only thing was the pull out bed needed to be replace. I'm definitely booking again! Thank you Karin!!!
Thank you for your comments. Our condo has indeed a very beautiful view. We will look at replacing the pull out bed. We will be happy to host you again in our condo.
Aloha and Mahalo
