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 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 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.

- There are also a couple of stores with most grocery needs as well as delis and fast food options.

- Maui Ocean Center aquarium (voted best attraction on Maui)

- Maui Golf & Sports Park is perfect for family fun

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

- The Shops at Maalaea offers a variety of shopping and snacking options

- Great snorkeling and surfing is right off your lanai!

Public Transportation: Most parts of the island can be reached from Maalaea via Maui bus services for only $2 per route.

Can't Get Closer To The Ocean Than This!

Can't Get Closer To The Ocean Than This!
  • Submitted: Mar 28, 2014

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.

Highly recommended! My husband and I had a wonderful time on our honeymoon. The very first morning while we were having breakfast on the back porch we watched a pod of whales swim around the cove! Each morning we also had a beautiful view of the sunrise over Mt Haleakala. Great central location, short drive to the Kahului airport (10 minutes through the beautiful countryside), Lahaina (25 minutes-depending on how many times you stop!), Kihei (nearest Safeway), etc... There are plentiful shops, restaurants, a gas station/convenient store, and an aquarium within walking distance (about 1/4 mile). There's also a park with beach access less than 1/4 mile down the same road in the opposite direction where we went snorkeling (gear for rent at shop near aquarium, $9 per day per person). We didn't consider alternative transportation or taxis, but it worked out great with a rental car, and there is a parking space provided at no additional charge. The staff person in the office was friendly in getting the parking pass, and the property management company was helpful and easy to get ahold of at the telephone provided. They gave us our door code exactly at check-in time, and even allowed us late checkout. It was very convenient having the washer/dryer in the condo, and the sofa bed was a good back up when my husband misbehaved. Just kidding!

Mahalo!

Wonderful Maui get away!!!

  • Submitted: Mar 19, 2014
  • Stayed: Dec 2010
This was a great condo vacation for us! The untouched beach, the turtles just steps away and occasionally a humpback whale in the bay!! Just wonderful. We are very laid back people therefore, we were looking for a central location to all the different tourist attractions and hot spot and this fit the bill! It was clean, and I thought it was a lot of room for the two of us. The other part we liked was that it wasn't very busy in comparison to Kihei or Lahaina. We didn't always have neighbors and when we did, you really only heard them if they were right in front of the condo. We highly recommend this rental and we would book there again!! Thank you so much for our wonderful Maui get away!!!

Great Condo and Even Greater View!

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Feb 26, 2014

We love to come to Maui every February for whale watching season and we get whale watch passes with the Pacific Whale Foundation. Even though we still took boats out several times during our stay we didn't really need to. We could keep an eye on the whales from both the lanai as well as from the sofa. We also used the pool and the grill several times, which were easily accessible from this ground floor location. We could also see sea turtles directly in front of the condo and with easy access to the beach we could be down there quickly if needed. The trade winds were not too prevalent during our stay, so we occasionally used the a/c which made it comfortable. In addition, the bed was also comfortable and since we cook in we also found the condo to be well equipped for cooking. Our only recommendation is to bring some ant spray as with most ground floor condos those tiny Maui ants will find there way in and the office did not have any spray. We bought our own spray cans at Longs and kept them under control during our stay. We would definitely recommend this condo and are already considering staying here again.

Nice Vacation Condo!

  • Submitted: Feb 18, 2014
  • Stayed: Jan 2014
My new husband and I stayed in this unit for part of our honeymoon on Maui and were not disappointed! The area is perfect. Away from the hustle and bustle of Kihei, but only a ten minute drive when you wanted to go down that way. Also only about 30 minutes from Lahaina as well. We enjoyed beautiful sunsets of Haleakala as well as whales spouting, breaching and playing in the Bay. The unit itself is well maintained and stocked. The washer and dryer was a great bonus! Always nice to be able to wash your salty swimsuit. The building was quiet and the property very beautiful. Thanks for making our stay memorable!
