DIRECT OCEANFRONT! QUIET, PRIVATE, ROMANTIC & CENTRAL TO EVERYTHING MAUI!

Maalaea Condo Rental Photos and Description

Direct oceanfront sleeps 4 with unobstructed forever views!

On The Beach Living!

(If we are booked for the dates you want, be sure to check out our other direct oceanfront at same price VRBO # 574508 )

This unique ground level condominium with a private lanai is only steps to the water's edge and is perfect for watching whales, surfers, windsurfers or the world famous surf rolling across Maalaea Bay. Wake up to panoramic views of Maui’s south shore, Mt. Haleakala, as well as Molokini and Kahoolawe islands. The spectacular sunrises over Mt. Haleakala and brilliant skies at sunset are only two of the special moments that will make your vacation a wonderful and lasting memory.

I grew up in Hawaii and have lived on Maui for over twenty years. We could have bought anywhere on Maui but wanted only this building. We waited years for one of the perfect direct oceanfront units where we could easily step out to the beach any time of day or night. This was one of only six homes in the building that had all the elements we hoped for. Located in one of the smaller complexes on the island, it's location at Maalaea, mean it's far less busy, quieter and more private than other like properties anywhere else on Maui. The bonus is that Maalaea is central to everything - it is absolutely the best kept secret on Maui!

Within walking distance from your front door:

- Maalaea Harbor where you can book any of the many ocean activities available on Maui including whale watching, snorkeling adventure and sunset dinner cruises

- A number of fine restaurants including Buzz's Wharf, Beach Bums Bar and Grill and The Waterfront.

- Haycraft Park and Sugar Beach, one of the most pristine, white sandy beaches on Maui, it stretches five miles all the way to Kihei

Why Jim and Victoria chose Maalaea

I grew up in Hawaii and have lived on Maui for over twenty years. We could have bought anywhere on Maui but wanted only this building. We waited for a direct oceanfront ground floor unit where we could easily step out to the beach any time of day or night. This was one of only three homes in the building that had all the elements we hoped for. located in one of the smaller complexes in the island, and it's location at Maalaea, mean it's far less busy, quieter and more private than other like properties anywhere else on Maui. The bonus is that Maalaea is central to everything - it is absolutely the best kept secret on Maui!

What makes this condo unique

We take pride in keeping the property clean and up-to-date. And unlike absentee owners, because we live on island, we have a unique opportunity to tune it up regularly! It's very important to us that our guests have a positive and memorable experience so they return and share our property with their friends. Warmest Aloha, Jim & Victoria

Guestbook comments from the owner

Can't get any closer to the ocean and not get wet! Loved waking up to the sound of the surf. Great central location. Not far to Lahaina, the farmer's market in Kahului, I'ao Valley (a "must see"--spectacular!). Saw so many turtles in the water and on the beach, and the mama and baby whales in early March were really a treat to see. Be sure to have a meal or two at Coconuts in Kihei--looks like just a fast food place, but SO DELICIOUS!!!. The condo is within walking distance from the Maui Ocean Center, not to mention Beach Bums for Sunday brunch, or Country Market for lunch. If you are into birds, try Kealia Pond NWR--added a few to my Life List.

Excellent value and location

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for 4 nights over Labor Day, 2014. We booked it based on the view from the lanai, which was actually much nicer than the picture could capture. You can see towards Wailea and Makena, Molokina, etc. Loved watching the boats leave the harbor in the morning about 7 am and returning about 4 pm. And the surfers going out to enjoy the waves right off shore. The grounds are very well maintained. Good location for exploring the island in all directions. Fabulous beach walk at the end of the block. Drove down to the beach park and left our towels, etc. in the car. Beach stretches for miles with no buildings around - bird sanctuary behind. Each morning, we'd walk out a mile or so and back, get our stuff from the car and then swim and relax on the beach. Wonderful. Guess it is a high wind area, but we were fortunate and only had mild breezes. Apartment itself is very basic, but has what you need. Nice to have an assigned parking spot and first floor access - no messing with elevators or stairs. Very quiet so we slept well. We really enjoyed our stay. THANKS!

Very Nice, Central Location in Mau!

  • 4 of 5
My husband and I stayed here the first half of our honeymoon and were very comfortable. We enjoyed the central/south Maui location and going into Kihei and Wailea for nice dinners and cooking at "home." Highlights of the condo were the lanai and the semi-private beach (with visiting turtles!). Very affordable for the island. Parking was easy.

Great location, nice condo

  • 5 of 5
This condo is very comfortable. It is very well equipped with everything you need and is in a very convenient location. The view out front is awesome. We even saw several turtles popping their heads up right in front of the condo! We definitely recommend this place and would return in a heartbeat.

Incredible view and value

  • 5 of 5
We loved the view! Just steps to edge of lawn and the ocean was right there! The turtles often feed on the rocks later in the afternoon. The area was quiet. We mostly met people who live there, so we were very glad there were not big noisy parties, no smoking, just totally relaxing. We purchased fresh fish and grilled that with veggies. Along with macadamia nuts, those were the best dinners! The bed is super-comfortable, high quality mattress. Opening the windows in bedroom plus by the slider door allowed the breeze to come through, keeping us comfortable. If we needed more breeze, we could open the door as well. We loved hearing the ocean 24/7. Furnishings were comfortable, everything that's needed was there, including some beach chairs and towels to take for excursions.

Recommendations:
We went on the 6:30am 2-hour snorkel trip with Kai Kanani, that was FABULOUS! Certainly a highlight. A shorter trip, less expensive, leaves from Makena beach so you are the first boat to the Molokini crater and you have it all to yourselves before hundreds of snorkelers show up. They also took us to Turtle Town, where finding turtles to swim with is no problems. Fabulous staff, so helpful to first-time snorkelers as well as experienced folks.
We had breakfast up north at the Gazebo, also recommended but get there either early (7:00am before they open) or later (10:30am) or you'll be in line for an hour. Then, go snorkel at Napili beach right next door. Worth the drive - completely protected, easy to snorkel in, saw plenty of little fish, and there is a good section of shade right on the beach for people who need that.
Recommended in Kihei for dinner: 808 Cafe, call for a reservation, less expensive but you feel like you're in a more expensive restaurant.
Best place to buy fresh fish for the grill: It's worth the drive to Kahului's Foodland. Much bigger selection that the Kihei's Foodland, and in quantities that work for 2 people. Especially try ono - it's a white fish that flakes and grills like salmon - fabulous! I wish there was a 10-star rating available. This wonderful condo, within easy drive of the entire west coast of Maui, is a gem.
