For whale watching there is not a better location. You are just a stones through from the edge of Ma'alaea Bay where the whales, dolphins and sea turtles all visit.

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 Ma'alaea, mean it's far less busy, quieter and more private than other like properties anywhere else on Maui. The bonus is that Ma'alaea is central to everything - it is absolutely the best kept secret on Maui!

Within walking distance from your front door:

- Ma'alaea 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 Ma'alaea offers a variety of shopping and snacking options

- Great snorkeling and surfing is right off your lanai!

About Jim and Victoria

I (Jim) grew up on the Big Island (Hawaii) and has lived on Maui for about 25 years. Victoria grew up in Santa Cruz, California and has also lived on Maui for about 25 years. We have owned operated rental properties here in Hawaii for years. We take pride in the quality of our properties and the personal service we give. We feel blessed and lucky to be a small part of some very memorable experiences for our visitors. Besides always upgrading the property we have hired a full time management company to assure our guests can always reach someone if they have a need.

Why Jim and Victoria chose Maalaea

Ma'alaea is central to everything and has some of the most pristine and barely used beaches - it is absolutely the best kept secret on Maui!

Having lived on Maui for roughly 25 years we could have bought anywhere on the island. But after looking at every direct oceanfront building, we had interest in only a couple and chose this one for it's location. We waited years for one of the perfect direct oceanfront units to become available, where we could enjoy the expansive ocean and outer island views throughout our home and 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 Ma'alaea mean it's far less busy, quieter and more private than other like properties anywhere else on Maui. Our guests love it as much as we do and return year after year.

What makes this condo unique

This property is one of the most quiet, private and romantic locations on the island. 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. In addition we employ a management company to assure our guests that someone will be available at all times should there be a need. 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.

Owner's Response: Aloha Bill. We are honored and grateful that you have chosen to stay with us for your last three visits to Maui and for already booking your 2016 visit! It's nice to know you like our place so much and that you take advantage of our facilities, amenities and central location. We've heard that some turtles have been sleeping right on the beach that's only 20 steps from the lanai - great bonus! Very glad you were able to have time to watch the whales in the bay in front. That's one of the reasons we were attracted to this location. We heard from your friend Rick - he walked about 3 miles along the beach to Kihei each day after exploring the island, all the way to the canoe hale - that's one looong walk! Maybe next visit you should visit the Maui Ocean Center and / or book a cruise. Both are within walking distance just down the road and well worth it. We look forward to hosting you again next year! Warmest Aloha, Jim and Victoria

Cozy, Beautiful Condo

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at your place. Very cozy and felt like home. The view is amazing. I loved the fact we could snorkel right out front and the building is very quiet. Quite refreshing after our stay in Waikiki the week before. I love the free parking. Thank you for having so many DVDs and games available, that was great! We hope to be back soon :)

Mahalo for a Dream vacation

  • 5 of 5

WOW! Where to start. Mahalo to Jim and Victoria for the use of their Condo for a 2 week vacation in Maui. Booking was simple and the communication with Jim was excellent, he answered any questions I had immediately. The Condo was situated in the perfect location for exploring the whole Island. 15 mins to Kahului, 10 mins to Kihei, 25 mins to Lahaina and beyond. Absolutely perfect. Totally safe and no problems with parking thanks to a reserved spot with the condo. It took us 36 hours, traveling from our Scottish home to get to the condo, so because of the jet lag we managed to get the sunrise every morning over Haleakala while enjoying breakfast on the porch listening to the Pacific and watching the turtles! Yes it sounds unreal, but I kid you not, we did this EVERY morning. This condo has everything required for a vacation and has a really comfortable bed. Small things like a safe, washing machine/dryer, beach chairs, snorkelling gear etc were a god-send. The condo was spotlessly clean and easy to maintain during your stay. The residents and maintenance guy (Hi Ben!) are all very friendly to visitors.

As for the area, Maalaea is a nice quiet town with a great bar that serves the islands only smoked BBQ (Beach Bums). The harbour (correct spelling...LOL) is great for boat trips. We took the Pride of Maui dinner sunset cruise which was excellent. Try and do all you can, like the Road to Hana and go fully clockwise, the road after Hana isn't too bad and brings you out at scenery like the Serengeti! Do Haleakala at sunset if sunrise isn't your thing and stay to watch the Milky Way above you in TOTAL darkness. Old Lahaina Luau is also fantastic. These are just a couple of things to do, we were there 13 days and did something different every day. Now we'll have to arrange to come back and do another load of different things. This is definitely our favourite (correct spelling LOL) US vacation destination. Once again, Mahalo Jim and Victoria.

This was our third time staying here. This is paradise and much nicer then the photos show! It's a really peaceful and you're only about 15-20 steps from the water. Its always clean and tidy and has everything we need to feel at home. Jim and Victoria have always been great host, quick respond to any questions or needs we may have. We'll be back this spring.

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!
