Please check our availability calendar before inquiring, since we do our best to keep it up to date with bookings. We welcome inquiries at any time, but only commit to a reservation one year or less prior to intended arrival date. Minimum rental is 7 nights (the only exception would be filling in a 5 or 6 night gap in the bookings.)
If you decide to stay in Mort's Port, this is what we can predict: You won't want to leave. Treat yourself to a stay in this superb third floor unit in Kanai A Nalu, and you'll understand. The wall-to-wall glass between the living area and the lanai presents an astounding and expansive ocean view. The gentle trade winds, the swaying palms, and the sound of the waves will enchant you. If you have ever stayed in the more tourist-populated parts of the island, you will appreciate the relative seclusion and quiet nature of Maalaea.
Within walking distance are the shops and oceanview restaurants at Maalaea Harbor. You'll also find boats departing for snorkeling, diving, and whale watching adventures. Also nearby is the Maui Ocean Center, as impressive an aquarium as you'll find anywhere. All this--plus a great ice cream parlor--is less than a mile away.
For exercise, you can head to the sandy beach to swim or surf. You'll be entering the water just 120 feet from the unit you are now calling home. Another option is to take a dip in the gated pool located in the center of the condo courtyard. If you want to take a scenic walk (or run) along the shoreline, you can go for miles on Sugar Beach, which has just two oceanfront condo buildings beyond ours to the east. Then you're on a vast stretch of sand alongside the Kealia nature preserve (a good place to spot shore birds such as Hawaiian stilts.)
You cannot do better than to select a condo unit in Kana'i A Nalu for your vacation. Its location on a sandy beach makes it a desirable destination, and all units are either oceanfront or oceanview. The building itself is well constructed (concrete walls and ceilings) and well maintained. Our two bedrooms are real rooms with real doors, not lofts and not sliding screens. If you like your privacy, you will like staying in our unit.
The views from this condo are breath-taking. When you can pry your eyes from the awesome views of the ocean and Mt. Haleakala (a dormant volcano), you'll notice that the grounds are so well landscaped and manicured that you might think you're in a botanical garden. Even the swimming pool is a visual delight with its tropical-flower-adorned waterfall continuously spilling fresh water down one side.
Just as impressive as what you see outside is what you will find inside the condo. The unit is tastefully decorated, featuring rattan living and dining furniture from the Kauai Collection. Throughout, you will find Hawaiian-themed artwork, mostly by local artists. You will see wood carvings, raku pottery, prints of scenic paintings, and decorative use of shells and corals. (There are also several original-by-owner-Sue watercolors).
You will rejoice at your selection of this condo unit if any of the following are important to you: A/C, FREE WIRELESS INTERNET ACCESS, FLATSCREEN TVs with CABLE AND DVD PLAYERS, MINI-STEREO SYSTEM with iPOD and iPHONE DOCKS, LENDING LIBRARY (no late fees ever), PORTABLE PHONE with FREE LONG DISTANCE, IN-UNIT SAFE, SNORKELING EQUIPMENT, WASHER/DRYER in unit, KINGSIZE BED in MBR, and TWIN BEDS (KING option) in 2nd BR.
Maybe not important to you now, but wait until you have settled into one: CUSHIONED RECLINER LOUNGE CHAIRS (two, inside) and SWIVEL BAR-HEIGHT CHAIRS WITH CUSHIONED SEATS (two, on the lanai). Also, many guests tell us that our four CUSHIONED DINING CHAIRS ON WHEELS are the most comfortable they have sat in.
Completed in May 2012: Bathroom remodeling including two NEW CUSTOM-BUILT STONE TILE SHOWERS (one a walk-in), new vanity tops (one granite and one composite), new mirrors and lighting, and comfort-designed Kohler toilets.
Ultimately, though, it's not what's inside that you're going to remember. It's more likely going to be the incredible views from the lanai and the strolls you'll take along the shoreline. Imprinted in your mind will be the postcard scene from the 3rd floor: the lush greenery and tropical flowers in the foreground, the beautiful blue waters of the bay in the middle, and the majestic Haleakala in the background. All that framed by randomly stretching palm trees to complete the picture.
At night, it's just as impressive. The lights twinkling from Kihei across the bay vie for your attention with the stars more bright and more plentiful than you can imagine. You'll see. You really won't want to leave.

Aloha. We are Mort and Sue, retired teachers who live near Chicago. Although we aren't able to come to Maui as often as we would like, every trip is filled with as much excitement as the cruise that introduced us to this marvelous island. We strive to make our unit feel as comfortable and look as appealing (in an island kind of way) as we possibly can.
This centrally located condominium on Maalaea Bay is relatively quiet, unlike many rental resorts in nearby towns that have constant traffic whizzing by. We like the building being all-concrete construction and the sandy beach being walkable for 5 miles to the east. It's also nice to be so close to the harbor, restaurants, and shops.
The view is astounding--straight out across Maalaea Bay with Mt. Haleakala in the background. We have seen whales and turtles from our lanai, which is why we provide binoculars for guests to use. At night, we love falling asleep to the rhythmic sound of the waves lapping up on the shore. We always return from Maui refreshed in body, mind, and spirit.
Many people enjoy taking a daily stroll along the shoreline of Maalaea Bay. The sandy beach begins at our condo complex and extends all the way to Kihei (approx. 5 miles).
