Maalaea Condo Rental Photos and Description
Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)
Kana‘i A Nalu means 'gentle surf,' but we call it 'Dad's Paradise.' Kana‘i A Nalu is a beautiful OCEANFRONT complex located ON the four-mile stretch of Sugar Beach on Ma‘alaea Bay. Our condo is located on the second floor with gorgeous views from the lanai of the tropical gardens, the pool, the ocean, and the sunrise over Haleakala, the 'House of the Sun,' Maui’s largest dormant volcano. During the winter months, when the humpback whales are in the bay, the lanai may become your full-time residence.
The central tropical garden area has a solar-heated pool, large grassy area, and two Weber grills for all to enjoy! In the late afternoon, the barbeque area is the place to be!
Kana‘i A Nalu appeals to those who don't want to have to walk through a congested lobby or across a busy street to get to the pool or beach. Our guests can easily go from our condo to the beach and back in a couple of minutes.
Our condo is fully equipped with kitchenware, linens, a dishwasher and a washer/dryer. We also have a nice collection of beach towels, snorkeling gear, sand toys and boogie boards for you to use on the beach.
The master bedroom has a queen-size bed with a connecting bathroom, while the second bedroom has twin beds and a full bathroom in the adjacent hall. We also have a queen-size sleeper sofa in the living room.
We have made some lovely improvements to the condo in recent years, with tile floors in the main living areas and kitchen, granite countertops in the kitchen and both bathrooms, and with HD TVs in the living/dining area and the master bedroom. We love the relaxed tropical style on island, and that style is reflected in our condo.
When the weather is blistering hot on other parts of the island, Ma‘alaea Bay’s consistent breezes keep the air comfortable at our complex. Inside the condo, each room has a ceiling fan to provide comfort.
Directly across the bay is the town of Kihei; towering above it is Haleakala, elev. 10,023. Sunrises over its summit can be seen from the lanai, and they are stunning!
Our condo is centrally located between Wailea and Lahaina, and is approximately 9 miles from the Kahului Airport.
***If you are a returning guest to our condo, be sure to ask about our discount.

About Terri (For owner Bob)
This is the fourth year that my brother and I have helped Dad to manage his condo on Maui. Our dad is a retired veterinarian, and at one time in our lives we had 3 cats, 2 dogs, 4 tortoises, and a beehive in the backyard. We now have families of our own, which, of course, include our beloved pets!
Our families live in Sacramento, Davis and Grass Valley, California.
Terri (For owner Bob) purchased this condo in 1987
Why Terri (For owner Bob) chose Maalaea
One of the reasons that dad was drawn to Kana‘i a Nalu and the Ma‘alaea Village area was that it was on a dead-end street. He loved the quiet slow-paced atmosphere of the area, yet he also loved that he could walk to the harbor, to dinner or to the aquarium. The condo backs up to undeveloped sugar cane fields and faces the ocean, giving it a secluded feeling while still being close to Ma‘alaea Village amenities.
When the weather is blistering hot in Lahaina and Ka‘anapali, Ma‘alaea Bay’s consistent breezes keep the air comfortable.
Also, if you want to explore the island, Kana‘i a Nalu's central location on the isthmus makes visiting other parts of Maui ideal.
What makes this condo unique
One of our favorite things to do while at Kana‘i a Nalu is to use the grill in the garden area. The welcoming atmosphere has allowed us to meet guests from all over the country and abroad too (there are often visitors from Alaska and Canada in the winter months). Another unique feature about Kana‘i a Nalu is the undeveloped four-mile stretch of Sugar Beach, which passes only sand dunes and a nature preserve before the resorts at Kihei. It makes for a relaxing sunrise walk in the early morning. Additionally, our fully equipped kitchen gives you the option to cook some of your meals at home, letting you save money for other island attractions. Maui has a Costco and numerous other grocery stores within a 15-minute drive.
