About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Lauloa Oceanfront Condo is located on the north end of beautiful Maalaea Bay in South Maui, fifteen minutes from the Kahului Airport (Maui's main airport), and twenty minutes from the popular resort areas of Lahaina, Kaanapali, Kihei and Wailea. Our condo is only 20 feet from the oceans edge with spectacular, unobstructed views.

Lauloa is located off a small street a good distance from the Highway and is very quiet. Typically the only sounds you hear are from the surf or tradewinds blowing through the palms. Maalaea Village is located with in walking distance from Lauloa, where you can find a deli, a general store, four restaurants, shopping center, and a miniature golf park, all situated around the small boat harbor where you can hop on a boat for fishing, snorkeling and whale watching tours.

The latest addition to the village is the Maui Ocean Center which is Hawaii's newest and largest ocean aquarium and marine educational center with displays.

During spring and summer one can often find good waves for bogey-boarding and surfing right out the door. Shore fishing is also possible. During the winter months you can view the humpback whales right from our oceanfront condo, it truely is amazing!

About Eva

Our beautiful condo on Maalaea Bay was our first home on Maui. We loved living there, however after having two babies and running a home business we felt we needed some extra space. We moved to a home in Wailuku, only 10 minutes away.

Eva purchased this condo in 1986

Why Eva chose Wailuku

We choose to buy our first home in Maalaea, because we loved living right on the waters edge. During Whale season we can see them everyday and hear them from our bed at night. In the summer Maalaea gets some of the best surfing waves in the world. The tradewinds blow most of the time keeping it much cooler and comfortable than say Kihei or Lahaina. And being centrally located on the island, you're not far away from anything.

What makes this condo unique

Direct oceanfront, only 20 feet from the ocean edge

Guestbook comments from the owner

The condo was just perfect. It had all the essentials needed for a home away from home. The location is what we to the ocean and very quiet with a breeze to keep us cool. The neighbours were friendly and very helpful. We had a wonderful holiday and would go back in a minute. thankyou Maui for the excellant emergency preparedness during the Tsunami warning.

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

This place was the BEST place for ANY family!!!! My daughter and I spent the best week of our life in this lovely condo. We aren't interested in glitz and glamor....we just wanted to have a fantastic and relaxing week in paradise. THIS WAS IT!!!!!! It was beautiful, easy living. A majestic view with comfortable ease. The location is centrally located and offers a welcome feeling when coming back from a day on Maui. Easy access to Maalea harbor and all of its activities....and only minutes away from the tourist spots of Kihei and Lahaina (without being in the middle of the hustle and bustle). Making coffee and watching the sun rise over Haleakala each morning was the highlight of the day. If you are looking for a no stress alternative to hotel living on your vacation.....I HIGHLY recommend this wonderful property.

Rented in Maui during the Spring Break/ RAINY SEASON????

  • 5 of 5

Place is a little Dated, but good Quality!!!! No Kuerig Coffee maker, no coasters for glass top tables!!!! but a great KING bed mattress. We had a good time, good BBQ RIBS at Beach Bums for the 1st time!!!! Could be coming back???? Rainy Season is not the time to go with Spring Break School Crowd!!!! Divided Highways across the island are a GREAT Improvement too !!!!

Unhappy renters

  • 3 of 5

The location of the condo was great. The view from the patio was fabulous and stunning. The condo inside was dated and old. Specially the kitchen needs a total redo. It really needs a total gut job. Everything from the cupboards, appliances, coffee maker, toaster. I mean everything. Not up to our usual standards we’ve come to expect from VRBO.

Beautiful ocean front private view!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay! We woke up to seeing whales and sea turtles, and a beautiful sunrise everyday, and you cant beat that! Plenty of room for all 4 of us. Bed were comfy. It would have been nice to have at least 2 lounge chairs. The only bad thing that I can say is the ants and roaches. The ants are really tiny and just liked the counter tops no matter how clean we kept it. It was really pretty bad. We didn't really get a good response on what to do about the roaches, so we just started calling them by name and tried to ignore them for our time there. But overall it was a great place with lots to do close by.

Nice place with Beautiful Oceanfront View!

  • 4 of 5

I enjoyed getting up in the mornings and walking right out the door on the lawn for the beautiful sunrises! Loved watching the whales right from our condo too! Condo was nice, nothing fancy but nice. A little more of a walk to the beach then what a thought but was ok. Maalea is a nice area and centrally located (as far as driving to places around the island). Overall, I feel like the condo is a good price for a nice place. Maalea is definitely more windy then the Lahaina area (where we have previously stayed) but a couple of days we were happy to have a breeze or it would've been hot.

Great location and condo.

The only down fall was there are hundreds of tiny ants all over the kitchen and some on the couch. Owner said to use a spray she had in the condo but I found it annoying to have to keep spraying at all times. We kept all food in the fridge and the ants still seemed to be everywhere. Other than that the condo was great.
