OCEANFRONT/ DIRECT OCEAN VIEW IN S. MAUI! BEAUTIFUL REMODEL!

Maalaea Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Some December dates still available! Spend the holidays on Maui!

Look no further for a perfect Honeymoon get-away, whether it's your first or your 50th! New granite counters, bamboo cabinets, newly remodeled bathroom, fresh paint & decor. And, in our cozy unit you'll have a front row seat for viewing of whales, turtles, and boating activities! Prime whale watching is from January through April.

You can't get closer to the ocean than this unit ideally situated in the very best location in Central Maui. Our condo is set up for a maximum of two non-smokers, please.

Our cozy 1 bedroom/1 bath unit on the second floor is perfect for the couple that wants a quiet retreat, yet central to everything on Maui. There are two elevators and stairway nearby, a security screen door to allow wonderful cross ventilation all night long, King sized bed, flatscreen TV's in both bedroom and living room; ceiling fans in the living room, bedroom, and on the lanai; free secured wireless internet. Eat out on the large lanai as you gaze at the great Pacific or walk to what will easily become your favorite Maui restaurant.

We have thought of everything to make your home away from home comfortable and inviting; there are beach chairs, coolers, and beach towels for your use and enjoyment. We even have a regular hand held as well as a giant binocular for your use. Because we are on-island owners, we can attend carefully to the needs of our condo and our guests.

Maalaea is famous for the bay the humpback whales use each year to birth and mate, and you'll see it all during the winter and spring months. Thinking of coming in the spring or summer? It's beautiful here! The temperature hovers around 85 degrees with Trade Winds blowing. Why not sign up for a turtle patrol and watch for nesting Green and Hawksbill turtles as you walk the longest beach walk on Maui. Walk to Sugar Beach or Kealia National Wildlife Pond one direction, or walk to the Harbor (with its many shops and restaurants) or the Ocean Aquarium the other way. Are you a golfer? There are world class courses nearby, with the closest being within a 5 minute drive.

Please let me know how I can help you with your reservation! Reservations for prime months are usually booked a year or more in advance for this very popular condo!

We are pleased to be your island hosts and hope we will meet or exceed your expectations for a pleasant place to call home while on vacation. Maui is an exceptional place on earth and when we moved here from Portland Oregon in 2001, it took little time to feel truly blessed. We also intuitively knew that we needed to 'give back' to the community in any way possible. We helped build a coastal pedestrian trail, work with and help protect native seabirds, restore local dune structure, remove rubbish from immediate coastal areas, work with a local park Action Team and helped develop a Park Watch program. In addition, we became active members of the Kihei Community Association and The Rotary Club of Kihei Wailea.

As we worked on our outside projects, passers by would ask to join us so we started a loose grass-roots organization of individuals who want to help make a difference; Hoaloha 'Aina (Friends of the Land). Please feel free to join us any Monday morning from 7:30am-9:30am as we remove invasive species, cut in or maintain beach access trails, plant native species, pick up rubbish, install sand fencing, mulch trails, weed, or any number of other projects along our Kamaole Beaches or Coastal Heritage Trail right across the street from Kamaole Sands Resort. Also known as South Maui Volunteers. look for our bright green vests with that name. If you decide to join us, we have gloves and tools for you to use. We have also teamed up with the Pacific Whale Foundation for their 'Volunteers on Vacation' program, and you may collect a special gift at their location in Maalaea as a thank you gift for your volunteer effort during your holiday!

We hope to see you along the trail! (...og jeg taler os dansk!)

The Owner purchased this condo in 2010

There is no better view of whales and turtles anywhere on the island than in Maalaea, and to find a direct ocean front/ocean view condo seemed like a perfect complement to our other vacation rental in Kihei. Now, guests who want a quieter, low key environment can choose Island Sands and fall asleep to the sound of waves lapping at the shore just a few feet away from the building.

The most unique benefit is the proximity to the ocean...and to the rest of the island! Whether you want to go to Lahaina or Kihei, Kahului or Haleakala, you are central to it all in Maalaea. There is a miles-long beach within a block for leisurely walks or powerful exercise opportunities!

AWESOME RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
This was such a delightful retreat! Gorgeous views welcome you from a private lanai. Lis made us feel very welcome with all the little touches. She didn't cut any corners and made sure we had all the little day to day supplies we could need. We felt as if we were in someone's home...not a rental. Everything was clean and in good repair. The unit is in a great central location making the drive to Lahaina or Wailea easy. We would definitely stay here again.

FANTASTIC CONDO AND VIEW

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I enjoyed our week in this beautifully appointed condo. Lis and Bob have it decorated like a home and not a vacation rental. Situated as close to the ocean as you can be, the views are spectacular. The kitchen is fully equipped beyond what you would expect to find in a rental. We made use of the beach towels and one of the coolers(thanks for having that). The location makes traveling around the island very convenient and easy. We loved the higher table and chairs on the lanai and ate our breakfasts and dinner out there daily. We would stay here again if we get back to the islands.

Owner's Response: Aloha and Mahalo for taking the time to write such a nice review! Having been to Maui several times in the past, you didn't feel pressured into having to 'see and do it all' so it sounds like you had the opportunity to do a lot of relaxing even though you were only here for the week. We understand that, like you, many people prefer to cook in and have leisurely meals on the lanai.... you simply can't find a restaurant with a better view! So, we set up the condo to include those things that we personally would enjoy having available. All the kitchen supplies and utensils, excellent large and small appliances, and of course the wonderful raised table and comfortable swivel chairs so you can spend as much time as you like.
You were wonderful guests and we look forward to your future return!
Thanks again! ~Lis

Owner's Response: Aloha and Mele Kalikimaka! It was great to hear that our condo suited you both, particularly because one of you has some mobility challenges. You mentioned to me in a separate note that you loved spending lots of time on the lanai, just gazing at the ocean. I'm so happy you had a wonderful time and hope you will return soon! Mahalo! .....

A PERFECT PLACE FOR AN ESCAPE ON MAUI

  • 5 of 5
Perched on the shore of Maalaea Bay with a spectacular view of Mount Haleakala and Molokine in the distance, this second floor condo is a perfect location for a vacation on Maui. It is spotlessly clean and immaculately maintained. With its high quality materials, finishes, and beautiful décor, this condo quickly became our ‘home on Maui’. Located near Maalaea Harbour, away from the more populated tourist areas of Kihei and Kaanpali, it offers a peaceful and quiet location for a restful, relaxing and private vacation in Maui. Centrally located, it is also a convenient location from which to explore the rest of the island. We enjoyed day trips to many places including Lahaina, Paia, Makena Beach, Fleming Beach, the Lavender Garden, the Aquarium and of course, the Beach Bums Bar & Grill at the harbor. The owners have truly thought of everything that is needed to make this condo a home away from home. Lis is a wonderful, helpful and engaging person who was readily available to respond to every question, helping us to enjoy our stay in the area, contributing to a spectacular vacation in Hawaii. We will always have fond memories of our visit to Maui and dreaming of the day that we can return. We appreciate everything she did to make this such a comfortable place to visit. We highly recommend this condo to any couple who is visiting Maui.

Owner's Response: Mahalo for such a lovely review! You were delightful guests ... although you left altogether too soon! :>). We are constantly upgrading and improving. In fact, since you have been here we've replaced the living room TV with a larger, improved Smart TV version and of course that meant a new console to place it on as well. We realize your focus is not on TV when in paradise, but when you do want to simply relax after a busy day we want you to have attractive options whether that includes cable TV while watching the ocean in the living room or bedroom, watching a movie with the DVD player, or listening to the stereo. We also have an iPhone/iPad port on both the stereo in the living room and in the bedroom clock radio to listen to your own tunes, if desired. We have been so fortunate to attract the most wonderful guests and it is always so gratifying to hear that our efforts to provide the best in accommodations is appreciated. Hurry back! Nothing would please me more than to help you with another reservation! Aloha! ~Lis

A TRUE OASIS

  • 5 of 5
This condo is so beautiful, full of amenities beyond what you would expect, and peaceful. The views from the lanai are extraordinary. We saw whales everyday, sea turtles just off the lanai, dolphins and seals. I would recommend, and already have, a stay here and plan to return as often as we can. The condo owners made themselves available if we had any issues, which was very nice to know. All in all an excellent two weeks.

Owner's Response: Mahalo for taking the time to write such a wonderful review. You were wonderful guests and I would love nothing better than to help you with a future reservation! Since we are on island owners, we can do our own cleaning/maintenance and we strive to keep our condo in top condition. Since you've been here, we have re-tiled the lanai, replaced the living room chair with a new wonderfully comfortable one, replaced the TV with a new 47" Smart TV, replaced the TV console to accommodate the larger TV, replaced the king mattress, and tiled the kitchen! We love making the condo better and better for our treasured guests.... hurry back, we miss you! ~Lis

A PERFECT PLACE

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay in this condo. Maalaea is central for all activities on the island, so a perfect spot if you want to explore Maui. The stores and restaurants are only a 5 min walk from the condo. It was a bit windy but we didn't minded that at all.

The condo itself has everything you need. Very clean and comfortable. The lanai has an amazing view and on our last day we were able to see quite a number of whales while having breakfast outside. The beach equipment is great as well.

We definitely will come back and can highly recommend this place!!!

Owner's Response: Mahalo! I'm so happy that you had a wonderful time and that you chose our condo for your holiday stay! The location is definitely perfect since it is central to everything on Maui. Then, the fact that there are many choices of restaurants from casual to fine dining within walking distance is a special bonus to our guests who enjoy an 'adult beverage or two' with their meal... no driving issues afterward! Thank you for writing and I hope to hear from you again soon! ~Lis
