Maalaea Condo Rental Photos and Description
This is one of 4 corner units at Maalaea Yacht Marina, located on the second floor. Big windows wrap the corner so the view is stunning even from the kitchen. You can easily host dinner for six at the large lanai table and enjoy the spectacular sunset skies. Custom kitchen with beautiful cabinets is well equipped with all necessities. Large master bedroom with sliding glass door leading into the lanai offers a full view of the water. The comfy king-sized bed has upgraded linens and lots of closet space. Separate vanity with large, tiled walk-in shower gives the feeling you're in a home and not a cramped hotel room. Many upgrades throughout, including broadband and cable TV.
New queen size sofa sleeper in living room sleeps an additional 2 people.
Maalaea is a great, central 'jumping-off' point to most points of interest on Maui. The airport is 15 minutes away, and you can reach Lahaina and the North Shore in a half hour. Kihei and Wailea are 20 minutes to the south, with 4 great golf courses located 5 miles or less.
Yes, there is wind in Maalaea, but you are sheltered on the lanai and can enjoy the views all day. We will gladly trade the traffic and congestion in the larger towns for the quiet residential feel in Maalaea.
There are four excellent restaurants within a short walk. The Maalaea General Store offers many wonderful convenience/grocery items and the Tradewinds deli is a great place to pick up sandwiches and chat with the friendly owners.
There is a small beach inside the breakwater, but you can walk to the end of Hau'oli Road to the four mile beach (it's about 1/2 mile and there is parking should you choose to drive). The beach is great for walking, swimming, and snorkeling (be sure to bring the snorkel gear, beach towels and boogie boards that are located in the closet!) But if you prefer, you can watch surfers challenging the Freight Train, a shore break wave known for it's speed and intensity, from your comfortable lanai seat. You might even see the resident Monk Seal (named Humpy) or the two eagle rays (named Spot and Ray).
Enjoy the famous Beach Bums, Porto's Pizza and Seascape Restaurant. Also at the village shops are the Maui Ocean Center (voted Maui's most popular attraction), Pacific Whale Foundation, Maui Dive Shop, ice cream and gourmet coffee. Carl's Junior is at the highway intersection, and there are miniature golf and bumper boats. You can catch the Maui Bus at the sidewalk below the Ocean Center if you'd rather not drive to Lahaina, Kaahumanu Mall, Wailea, Paia, etc. The routes can change, I try to keep updates in the condo, but there are up to date schedules posted in the Village and on-line.
We purchased the condo in December 2013. Previous owner rented out this unit through vrbo for several years with many positive reviews.
Owning an oceanfront condo has been a dream come true for us and we are thrilled with the idea of using it primarily as a vacation rental while visiting occasionally with our own family and friends. We treat the condo with love and make it a priority to always have it in the best possible condition.
We consider our guests as friends and truly want them to have a wonderful experience while on Maui. We have wonderful managers on the island who are available whenever you need them.
We ask that at least 1 adult be over the age of 25.
Please ask about our monthly or weekly discounts.

About Peter and Dorthi
We are recently retired and now have the time to enjoy the things we love -- traveling, photography and visiting friends and family. After visiting our kids on Maui for over 9 years, we had an opportunity to buy this condo, fulfilling a life-long dream. We are thrilled to be able to offer it to others to enjoy, but we'll equally happy to occasionally use it with our own friends and family.

Why Peter and Dorthi chose Maalaea
We fell in love with the condo as soon as we first saw it. The ocean views are amazing throughout the living area, kitchen and even from the master bedroom. The overall feeling we got was cozy, comfortable and relaxing.
What makes this condo unique
This is a rare corner unit with a wrap-around lanai that allows for interesting views of the ocean as well as the harbor and all its activities. It has the perfect balance of relaxation and excitement and you can have a wonderful time just lounging on the lanai. Beautiful sunrises and sunset skies are really breathtaking. The condo is walking distance to beaches, the harbor, restaurants, shops and all kinds of interesting places to explore.
