We finally got our own piece of paradise! We have been vacationing in Maui, and specifically Maalaea Bay area, for over 20 years.
Hank & Waneta Erb purchased this condo in 2005
Maalaea Bay is on the beautiful south side with majestic views of Haleakala and the best place to view whales during whaling season.
Excellent views. Clean. Central location. Would stay here again.
We enjoyed our stay at this condo. The location is convenient to local restaurants, the aquarium, shopping, boat trips, etc. It is also a great location to base your trip to other areas of the island - very central. The condo was just as the pictures indicated and the scenery of the bay from the lanai was outstanding! We saw the whales and their young every day of our visit! Wireless internet would be nice as we only had our iPad. Also beach towels and beach chairs would be a welcome addition. Minor things as the condo itself was wonderful! Thank you for a very enjoyable stay at your condo!
We enjoyed our stay in your condo. The central location was great. We enjoyed the quiet, private atmosphere. It was the perfect place to come relax after a day of playing anywhere on the island. The condo was exactly as described, the reservations were easy to make, and the property management team helpfull. We found the condo manager to be friendly, and welcoming. The view was fantastic. The overall atmosphere seamed friendly and quiet, we woke up each morning to the birds singing, and fell asleep each evening to the sound of the waves. We would stay here again.
The only thing we could think of to make the stay eisier would be beach towels, and wireless internet (tho the broadband was fast enough and adequate).
This well-located condo has everything one could need for an excellent vacation stay: well-equipped kitchen, very comfortable queen bed, balcony overlooking the bay where at the right time of year one can watch cavorting humpback whales. It is a short walk to a 3-mile-long beach in one direction and a beautiful aquarium in the other. Fifteen miles to super-busy Lahaina; you'll be glad to come home to quiet Ma'alaea.
We had a great stay in this condo. Very comfortable and great view. The only suggestions I would make is to have some sharper knives (tried to cut pineapple!) and scissors (we couldn't find any). This was my third visit to Maui and I liked the location very much. If you plan on excursions then Maalae is a great place to stay as the boats leave from that harbor. Very easy to find from the airport and central to all locations on the island. Thanks so much for a wonderful stay!
Arrived early evening and by the time we went out and got supplies, had something to eat we went straight to bed having had a long trip over from the UK.
The next morning my partner woke me up about 6am to see the wonderful sunrise!! We sat on the balcony for around and hour transfixed by the view - what a fantastic location and view. We were in love!!! (ps - dont dare move the chairs on the balcony as we had a visit from downstairs within minutes!!!)
It took us about two days before we walked up the road to the beach (turn right outside the apartment) and I wish we had done it sooner as it was just amazingly unspoilt and beautiful.
We went down to the harbour and had a fantastic meal that the local fish restaurant - there is only one so you cant miss it but I would advise that you book.
We also took a boat trip from the Harbour out to coral reefs and swam with the Green Turtles - had the most fantastic day out!
We drove up the coast one day to have a look at the main tourist resort of Lahaina - bloody awful! I am sorry but it was - I am so so glad we were staying in our lovely apartmet in Maalaea Bay.
I would love to go back again sometime and stay in this great apartment.
This remodeled condo offers a spectacular view of the beautiful bay (75 feet away), the majestic 10,000 foot volcano Haleakala, and the evening lights of Kihei. Relax on the lanai to the soothing sound of the waves. During whale watching season (December-April) the great humpbacks use the bay for birthing and breeding and can be easily viewed from the lanai.
Sugar Beach (a 5 minute walk from condo) is a 4 mile uninhabited stretch of beach that offers beach combing, swimming, snorkeling, fishing and surfing.
The condo has a queen size bed in the master bedroom and a queen size sofa bed in the living room. The kitchen is equipped with Sub-Zero refrigerator with ice-maker, microwave, cooking utensils, and washer/dryer. There is free high speed internet, free Wi-Fi and free local telephone service.
