Three miles of quiet sandy beach will entice you to walk, run, or build sand castles. The tropical water is perfect for swimming, snorkeling, surfing, or windsurfing.
The lanai is the perfect place to enjoy morning coffee or tea as you watch the whales playing (December-March) or boats going in and out of the harbor. The heated pool in the tropical landscaped courtyard is a great way to relax, or if you’re not into swimming there are plenty of lounge chairs for reading, relaxing, and sunning. There are also charcoal barbecues and a gas grill for you to use.
A short walk down the quiet, tree-lined road will lead you to Ma’alaea Harbor with its great restaurants and shops, including the Five Star rated waterfront. Just steps away are the new Maui Ocean Center Aquarium, and a putt-putt golf course with bumper boats in the center.
Our condo has two bedrooms with their own baths, all newly remodeled and finished in tropical décor. The master bedroom has a king bed, the other bedroom has two twin beds that can be pushed together to make a king bed (bedding for both options is furnished). A large sectional couch can be used for extra sleeping. There is a fully equipped kitchen that includes a washer and dryer.
We are proud of our condo and would love to have you share our piece of paradise.

I would recommend this condo to anyone who wants to be close to the ocean, have plenty of room by the pool and who likes to hear the sound of the ocean at night. The pictures on VRBO do not do this condo unit justice. The 2nd bathroom has an up-graded shower and the main living room area furniture has a nice reclining chair in addition to the large L shaped couch. We are a family of 4 with 2 teenage children and there was plenty of room for us. During our stay several other family friends stayed at Kania A Nala and it was a prefect set-up. The Kania A Nala is smaller than some of the larger condos and we liked that. It is a quick drive to Kihei (10 minutes to the Safeway) and only a 20 minutes to Lahaina. The restaurant "Beach Bums" is in the Maalaea harbor and we liked their live music and their pork tacos. The only "con" is that the beach space directly in front of the condo unit is relatively small. But if you walk a short distance down toward Kihei there is more beach space and easy boogie boarding area. We hope to get back to Maui and will definitely look into staying at this unit again.
There are not enough stars to use to rate our stay at this Condo.
Everything was Top Notch from the initial contact with the owners to the final day.
The owners responded immediately to every inquiry. When we arrived, the place was spotless. Not only was the Condo exactly as pictured, the pictures don't do it justice. It is very beautifully and tastefully decorated. With the use of mirrors and the way the Condo is laid out, it gives a feeling of "space". Very comfortable, and not cramped at all.
I would have to say, the best part is laying in bed at night, looking out the window at the stars and palm tree swaying in the wind, and listening to the ocean. I miss that!
The location is perfect, close enough to everything, but not in the middle of the busy tourist area.
There are miles of uncrowded beach to walk and set up for the day. Everything you need is provided in the Condo; chairs, beach towels, etc. The kitchen was so well stocked. We cooked all of our meals there, which saves quite a bit of money.
It was definitely the best Condo I have stayed at through VRBO, and hope to go back again. If you stay here, you will not be disappointed.
What a great spot! This is the second unit we have stayed in at the building and it was awesome. The unit was very clean with some nice updates and some beach toys like boogie boards and a couple of beach chairs. The unit had everything needed like newer appliances, washer and dryer right in the unit and fridge with ice maker. All the beds where very comfortable which is important to me if staying for two weeks, nothing worse than an uncomfortable bed on vacation. The third floor location gave us an excellent view from the lanai of the ocean and the beautiful grounds. The trade winds and the quiet high quality fans kept the unit very comfortable air conditioning was available and worked great but was not really needed. The grounds keepers keep the place very tidy and well looked after, the grounds and flowers are awesome. The pool is cleaned every morning like clockwork before it opens at 9am and is solar heated so it was 86-88 degrees every day during our stay. The beach the building is on is one of the best walking beaches in Maui and is about 5 miles long. There are only two other buildings then the beach borders Haycraft Park and Ke?lia Pond National Wildlife Refuge so there are no further buildings along the beach. Watch for the Maalaea freight train waves when they happen it attracts a large number of surfers along the harbour edge and lots of boogie boarders at Haycraft Park. The central location made day trips easy no matter what direction we went for the day as we started in the middle of the island. The owners Daniel and Barbara were very easy to communicate with and very accommodating. No regrets here excellent vacation spot and unit, we will defiantly be back!
This was our first time to rent a condo on vacation and I must say we were thrilled! This condo was all that was described and more. The convenient location was a short drive to ANYWHERE we wanted to go on the island and provided us with all the comforts of home. This beautiful property is laid out so that there are no obstructed views from any condo...much better than other properties we saw when driving around. There is always a nice breeze flowing through the condo should you choose to open the windows. The view from the lanai is just incredible. Our first morning there we walked out on the lanai to see a whale breaching in the waters...what a beautiful welcome to Maui!! The property is nice and quiet as well...such a relaxing environment! There is a beautiful pool and BBQ amenities with views of the beach. The condo is equipped with everything you need in a kitchen, w/d, linens and even some beach gear. We converted the second bedroom from two twins to a king bed easily and it was like we had two private suites with attached baths. It was perfect us and the couple we shared it with. The owners, Dan and Barbara Pickett, were easy to deal with and made our first time renting a condo a pleasant experience. This condo is nicely furnished and very clean. I would highly recommend staying here and should our travels take us to Maui again, we will certainly check to see if it is available.
