Book now for your vacation in May or June. $160 a night (six night minimum) with no additional fees! That's a 17% discount. Offer expires June 30, 2014.

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.

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.

Meera Kohler purchased this condo in 2009

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.

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.

Beautiful and Quiet - The Perfect Getaway

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.

Owner's Response: It was just delightful to get to know you as you planned your vacation! There are no such things as strangers - just friends you haven't met yet. Hope to see you back soon! Meera and Marilyn

AWESOME CONDO

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.

We absolutely loved this condo! We'd sit on the lanai and watch the whales breach in the distance and you could see the turtles in the bay. Listening to the waves crash and the trade winds blow through the palm trees at night was very peaceful. The condo was beautifully decorated and there was plenty of room for my husband, myself and our 14 year old daughter. We'd walk over to the shops and to the general store for our morning coffee. I would definitely recommend this condo and look forward to returning in the near future!

Owner's Response: Ma'alaea is definitely Maui's best kept secret. Peace and seclusion coupled with the fun bustle of the harbor and wonderful amenities nearby. It makes our souls happy! - Meera and Marilyn

Awesome, Relaxing, Centrally located in Maui

Staying at this location was great, with the proximity to all the main attractions like Lahaina, Kaanapali, Haleakela, Kahului, etc. It seems much easier for us to relax and worry less about planning travel and to-from time for the different place

We had a wonderful experience with the owners. The entire process was very easy and the owners can be trusted and are were very helpful. The condo is just as the pictures depict it. The master bed was extremely comfortable, and we had everything we needed in the condo. The condo is centrally located, this is the reason we chose Maalaea Harbor. This was our 4th visit to the island, and our second to Maalaea Harbor. We enjoy the wonderful trade winds. The condo complex was quiet with nice neighbors. We enjoyed our daily walks on the beach from the condo down to Kihei. We enjoyed snorkeling, zip line, surfing, and eating shaved ice. We visited Haleakala twice and took the road to Hana trip once. We enjoyed the town of Paia very much. We took our two teenage kids with us on this family trip and had a lot of great memories. I would definitely recommend this condo, having worked for the Ritz Carlton for 13 years, knowing a good experience when I see it. The staff at the local General store were first class, which is a short walk from the condo, and the sticky buns, and chicken salad sandwiches were awesome. The Waterfront restaurant also a short walk from the condo was one of our better dinners there. Other dining establishments we enjoyed were Ruth Chris' Steakhouse in Lahaina, The Hula Grill, The Pineapple Grill, Star Noodles, lunch at the Ritz Carlton Kapalua, Da Kitchen in Kihei (local food), Pita Paradise, and Kimo's. We also enjoyed the town of Makawao. Our favorite beaches were Napili, Big Beach, Black Rock, and Flemings. Our favorite spot for snorkeling and seeing Green Sea Turtles were Black Rock, and Honolua Preserve past Kapalua. Maui is a beautiful place and the relaxation and comfort felt with the well maintained condo was quite nice. Mahalo and Aloha
