Ma'alaea is Maui's best kept secret. This is where the best whale viewing is - but only for the residents of the handful of condominiums along the shore of Ma'alaea Bay.

Beautiful, recently remodeled unit less than 50 feet from the ocean. Fabulous view of Haleakala. Watch whales and manta rays frolic from your lanai. Maui's best surfing wave - the Freight Train - is 100 yards away. All this, and absolute quiet - other than the sound of the surf lulling you to sleep.

Walking distance to several shops, restaurants, the Maui Ocean Center Aquarium and Ma'alaea Harbor for whale watching and Molokini snorkel/scuba tours. The property is very quiet for a restful and relaxing vacation, but close to the many activities that Maui offers. It is 5 miles to Kihei, 8 miles to Kahului, and 15 miles to Lahaina.

We have very comfortable beds in the two bedrooms and a sleeper sofa if you need more space. The Tradewinds Deli, a wonderful little convenience store with daily hot specials, is right next door for last-minute amenities, Island produce and a great variety of beverages.

A small local beach park at the end of our short road marks the beginning of the well-known Sugar Beach. You can walk unobstructed for several miles to Kihei along this lovely sandy stretch.

About Meera Kohler

The property is named Aurora Sands - signifying the union of Alaska (Aurora Borealis) and Maui (endless sand beaches and azure waters.) The property is owned by two women friends in Alaska. Hawaii Tax ID: W10780602-01 (Marilyn Leland) and W63599587-01 (Meera Kohler)

Meera Kohler purchased this condo in 2009

Why Meera Kohler chose Maalaea

Living in Alaska, we like to get away to warm and sunny places in the winter and Maui is perfect. We decided to buy a condo for ourselves and our families and as an investment for vacation rentals.

What makes this condo unique

Ma'alaea Yacht Marina, at 30 Hauoli Road, is a small property with 45 condos and an on-site resident manager. Many of the owners live in their condos, so you will feel like you are part of an extended family when you visit. The pool, barbecues and grounds are impeccably maintained. Each unit has a dedicated parking space and there are several spots for visitor parking as well. Our unit is a first floor unit, but we are elevated about six feet above the ground on the ocean side so that a spectacular view and complete privacy are assured.

Fabulous Place

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful condo, watching whales from the lanai, turtles swimming out front, a short walk to snorkel. Everything we needed from beach chairs, towels, snorkel gear, book on the drive to Hana with secret places to see great waterfalls. The beds were very comfortable and the kitchen very well stocked for any items to cook with. Can't wait to go back. I would recommend this to everyone.

Maui Stay

  • 4 of 5

We loved the condo. The bedrooms and bathrooms were very comfortable. We appreciated the beach chairs, the snorkel equipment, and the boogie board. They is everything one could need in the kitchen. As with other reviews, the harbor noises start early for the master bedroom and the elevator binging for the other. Ear plugs solve both problems!

Paradise on Maui

  • 5 of 5

Great location , nice condo with close proximity to beach with many many large turtles. Master bedroom bath very nice. Owners allowed us a late checkout . Living area a little small . Clean with a great view of harbor and enjoying morning coffee. Only issue is back bedroom gets a little hot as ac struggles to cool back there. I would highly recomend this unit for a small group. Maalaea is a great area to stay halfway between west side and south shore.

Perfect place for the family vacation! Perfect, Perfect, Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Sorry this is long but there are not enough words to describe how amazing this place is! There was NOTHING we didn't have staying at Aurora Sands and you will NEVER find a hotel with as many amenities or as much room. This place saved us tons of money in rentals alone. When we arrived we found that the condo had beach umbrellas, beach chairs, snorkel gear, boogie boards and coolers. Notice how I use plurals? There was enough of everything for my family of four. The kitchen was fantastic! They had EVERYTHING you could need and then some. Pizza pan (which we used), professional bottle opener and many wine glasses (which we also used-often), 2 George Foreman grills, lots of Tupperware for our daily leftovers and some things I had no idea what to do with – but they had them. One night we used the grills at the pool to bbq some steak and ate on the lanai watching the sunset and drinking wine we purchased from the winery earlier that day. Seriously? How does it get better? My kids had their own bathroom, thankfully, and they were both nice and big. Maalaea is also quite breezy so when it got to 90 degrees when we were there, we didn't have to use the AC once. The ceiling fans in every room kept us nice and cool.

One of the things I loved the most was that they had trays and little bowls ALL OVER the condo. It sounds silly, but it was GREAT to have a place to put your keys, change, jewelry, sunglasses and shells found each day. It’s the little things that make a place feel like home.

It was so great working with these 2 ladies on everything. They were SO quick to respond to all our questions and needs. We accidentally locked the keys in the condo before a snorkeling trip one day. When emailing to request the code – at 6:00 am mind you, I got a reply before we reached the boat.

The only thing that disappointed during this trip was that we couldn't stay longer. We are already thinking about coming back during whale season.

Love Love Love Aurora Sands. XoXO

Beautiful and Quiet - The Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We visited Maui for the first time in March, 2014. The condo was everything we expected, and more. It was updated, clean, comfortable, and well-equipped. We found everything we needed for our Maui vacation (except winter parkas for the trip to the top of Heleakela at 3:30 a.m. - lol), right down to beach chairs and coolers. The location was perfect for us, two 50 'ish' couples with no kids, but might be a little quiet for younger people looking for some nightlife. There are 4 pretty good restaurants right there at the marina (a 3 to 4 minute walk), and 2 little corner stores to pick up odds and ends. Although the complex was quiet, there was always something going on at the marina. We watched boats going out and coming in all day. We were also lucky enough to be there during whale season, so we spent hours on the lanai watching humpbacks in the bay. Bring your binoculars! The condo has a small telescope, which we put to good use, but it's hard to share one telescope when everyone wants to see.

After exploring the island, we all agreed that we would probably choose to book the same condo for a return visit. It is situated between the two busiest tourist areas on the island, Kehei and Lahaina, so you have the option to head in either direction for shopping, dining, or beach activities. You can also leave the car parked and walk to the marina to board boats for tours, snorkeling, fishing, whale watching, etc.

As a final note, the ladies who rent this condo are awesome to deal with. They answered all of our questions and were very helpful. All in all, our first experience using VRBO was extremely positive.

AWESOME CONDO

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay in this condo. Such a beautiful condo with beautiful views. The owners are wonderful people to work with. Located in a great area yet close to any place you would want to visit on the island, located in a relaxing location but away from the hustle and bustle. I would highly recommend it.
