2 Bed/2 Bath Fully Remodeled, Beautiful Grounds, Pool, Oceanfront
This top floor condo has updated kitchen and baths, master bed has king bed, second bedroom has 2 twin beds (can be converted to king) . The entire unit has been recently refinished with beautiful tropical touches throughout. The Kanai a Nalu complex has immaculately maintained grounds, private pool, barbecue and picnic tables directly overlooking a very private small sandy beach.
We are former Hawaii residents who have been coming to Maui for more than 30 years. We love the convenient central location, quiet neighborhood and serene ocean views in Maalaea. It gives us great pleasure to offer the same to you!
Why Karin Higgins chose Maalaea
Kanai a Nalu offers the privacy of a romantic getaway, but also the location and amenities conducive to a truly memorable family vacation.
What makes this condo unique
The view from the top floor is unparalleled, especially when the humpbacks are in residence. But it can be equally satisfying to watch boats come and go from the harbor and observe surfers riding one of the fastest curls in the world at 'Freight Trains' off the harbor seawall.
Good central location for Maui--Near Pacific Whale Foundation, Ocean Museum, and some restaurants. The unit is comfortable, good view. No beach in front the property, but such is available via very short walk.

Just got back from a week's vacation in paradise. Maui was made that much better by choosing to stay in this condo. Let me say that I'm an avid researcher and I find most reviews lacking. So I'm going to write about the things I wish others would say in their reviews which would have made finding this place so much easier. We found this place by word of mouth. And I'm so glad I did, read on...
First, the complex is gorgeous, with FANTASTIC direct access to the beach which was exactly what I wanted. So many other rentals use "coded" words where I could not be sure I had direct, immediate access to the beach. This Unit not only has great beach VIEWS but great beach ACCESS. I mean this is why we came to Maui in the first place. The condo itself was extremely comfortable and very pleasantly decorated. I did not want to stay in a place that was dated and worn. The advertising for this unit said that it has been recently "refinished". And they are right! My wife is very picky and a "neat freak" and she was very happy with how clean the everything was. The kitchen has all the right stuff needed for cooking meals and saving money on eating out. I was even able to make my healthy smoothies in the morning! The beds are comfortable and the living space made it easy to sit back and rest after a long day of snorkeling and other adventures.
The complex has a warm pool and is extremely family friendly. There's something pretty cool about swimming in the surf, showering off and then jumping a pool just steps away. Frankly was I surprised to find how friendly the other guests were, sitting around chatting and having fun sharing stories about the island "hot spots". We used the barbecue next to the pool a couple of times and even got tips on cooking mahi-mahi from one of our neighbors that was delicious.
I did not realize at the time of booking just how convenient the complex is located on the Island. I did not know that Maui has traffic at times, so being located at Maalaea Bay in approximately the middle of the island allowed us to get to anywhere within minutes without worrying so much about traffic. And the shops at the marina nearby was great- within walking distance! Coffee at the general store is great!
There is a 10pm to 8am quiet policy which I really really appreciated. I would stay here again and again and have no reservations in recommending this place to friends, relatives & colleagues.
