An excellent choice for people who seek a quiet beach vacation, this property has an unbeatable view and is located on a beach that is empty for five miles. Monk seals, whales and rays can be seen in season. Five good restaurants and two convenience stores are located within walking distance. A large aquarium and miniature golf can also be accessed without a car. More extensive shopping is six miles away.
We live in Juneau, Alaska. Jim was born and raised in Alaska. Jean Ann came from Ohio in 1969. We have three grown children. Both of us are retired educators.
Jean Ann Alter purchased this condo in 1984
Maalaea is quiet and beautiful. Everything on the island is convenient to this area. Also, a person cannot beat the seculded beach for long walks.
This was exactly what I wanted for our vacation. My family has stayed at many large resorts and we were ready for some thing small that felt like home. One of the biggest reasons I booked this exact condo was other reviews that commented about the sound of the waves! WOW it was amazing so close to the water, a perfect breeze coming thru the condo. The morning sunrise while enjoying coffee was simply amazing.
Jim and Jean were so awesome to work with!
The condo was supplied perfectly it had everything we needed, this was a great space. I loved the screen door on the entrance door!
The beds were so comfortable and the bedding was nice. The bathrooms were newer and that was a bonus.
We stayed here for a week with our 3 kids and prior to arriving we were on Waikiki beach for 6 days, I wish we would have spent more time in Maui and less in Waikiki! Maui has so much to offer.
The only suggestions I would have is a med. size beach cooler to use. I brought a travel one but things got warm fast. A hard side cooler for picnics would have been great.
Thank you for sharing your condo with others, We hope to return one day!
We have only been back a few days and already miss it.
Dealing with Jim and Jean Ann to arrange this holiday was so easy and they were so wonderful with everything. The directions they provided were perfect, they gave driving directions right from the airport :) We checked in after the office had closed and the keys and more information were right where they were supposed to be. Everything went so smoothly.
The condo was perfect for what we needed or wanted. The sound of the waves putting us to sleep and waking us up was magical. The morning walks on the beach were beautiful. There were turtles everyday in front on the condo.
The residents and guests of the complex were all wonderful and very friendly and helpful. The maintenance man was very helpful when we had an issue with the washer not starting and made sure it turned out alright in the end.
We will definitely stay at this same condo again if we are ever able to return to Maui for another holiday. Thank you so much Jim and Jean Ann for sharing your piece of paradise with us, it was perfect in every way!!
We enjoyed our trip to Maui, by far the best holiday we have taken. Owners very easy to deal with and extremely helpful in making arrangements to rent the condo. The condo was a perfect place to return after our day out touring the island, boogie boarding,or going snorkeling. We really loved the quiet here, and I think thats what made us love the holiday. Honestly everything you need as far as the kitchen goes is there and then some! We went to Costco the next day after arrival and picked up all the meats and main things for our whole holiday, then we shopped every few days at Foodland in Kihei for the little things for meals. Take a couple of minutes and get the "card" at Foodland, saves quite a bit of money (and there free, just ask).
The best was laying in bed at night and just to the waves, still miss that. Our kids were constantly in the ocean or the pool. Can't wait to go back!
Thanks Jim and Jean Ann for sharing your place with us.
We had an incredible time over on Maui and staying in this condo. It has everything you need. We were there with our two teenage sons so it was nice to have the twin beds in the downstairs bedroom. The condo must be no more than about 50' from the beach!! Can't beat that and certainly not for the price.
I will never forget listening to the ocean at night while falling asleep. We saw whales from the beach and did tons of snorkeling as well. Great location as Kihei is just down the road a couple of miles while Lahaina is about 30 minutes north. I prefer Maalea over Kihei myself - less crowded, more quiet and so forth. All of the boats that go out to Molokini take off from the harbour just down the beach too.
Jim and Jean - thanks a bunch for the great time we had!! We'll be back - just don't know when yet! Mahalo.
Our family of four stayed at this condo for a week in March. The view was spectacular, with easy access to the beach. Condo was clean, well kept, with everything we needed for a comfortable stay. Great central location on Maui, with easy driving to Kihei and Lahaina. Our kids loved the pool and beach, as well as the aquarium which is in short walking distance.
This place is a real gem. It is centrally located making it easy to explore the entire island. It is set away from the super-tourist-y resort areas of the island but is still within walking distance to grab an ice cream cone, buy a six-pack or batteries, visit the aquarium, or take a chartered boat to Molokini crater for snorkeling. One entire side of the condo is windows and is so close to the beach that it sounds like the waves are breaking in the living room. It was so utterly peaceful to fall asleep to the sound of crashing waves every night. It feels like being at the beach even while cooking dinner. Also the downstairs bathroom is dreamy with an open-air feel in new stone tile. It is super easy to walk outside for a quiet moonlight walk on the beach or a quick jaunt into the ocean. The free parking and wifi make vacation easy. I'm so grateful we stayed here!
Hono Kai sits on a sandy beach and your door is 50 steps from the water. Turtles and whales (in season) entertain you while you sip your coffee and watch the waves. The very walkable beach is empty for three miles to the edge of Kihei. A deli, aquarium, marina and several restaurants are any easy walk up the lane to the Maalaea village. Bus service is available at the aquarium.
Other Activities: Shopping, mini golf
Golf: Numerous golf resorts are available in a ten mile radius.
