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 Maui

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.

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.

Perfect vacation condo! Central location, great beach, pool, and bbq grills.

  • 5 of 5

Loved this LauLoa Condo! Eva and Dorothy were very accommodating. The condo is in great shape. The rooms and bathrooms were great, beds and pillows were new, clean, and comfortable. The kitchen and condo were stocked with the necessities. Neighbors were pleasant and quiet. Pool is big, clean, and they have great bbq grills. You can snorkel right out back if tide is low, or surf if you're an expert swimmer. You can walk to Haycraft Beach Park for a great long beach walk down Sugar Beach, or just enjoy the beach right when you reach the park. New showers were put in and there are portable bathrooms that are cleaned frequently. The Maui Ocean center, Maui Golf, and Sports Park, Maalea Harbor, along with shops and restaurants are right down the road. Great central location for you to enjoy all the surrounding towns. We will rent again!

Great Oceanfront View

  • 3 of 5

We had a great time at Lauloa. The condo has a perfect oceanfront view so you can walk out and enjoy your morning coffee to a beautiful sunrise. The lawn is great for tanning or watching the turtles that come by everyday to feed amongst the lava rocks below. We also enjoyed morning walks along the sandy beach which is a short walk down the street. The beach goes on for miles, great for beach walks and finding shells with the kids. Lauloa is an older complex however has a great central location and has all the comforts of home. We had fun time exploring the island. Hope to come back to Maui soon!

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

My kids and I stayed at this condo. It had plenty of room for us to spread out and everything we needed. I loved the fact this it isn't in a busy town but close to everything! We saw whales and sea turtles right from this condo! It's a peaceful place to relax on vacation, with beautiful views! The only thing I wished it had was a beach to walk on right in front of condo..but, you can walk to beaches from rental. If and when we come back to Maui, we will defiantly stay here again!! Thanks!

Great Location and Accommodations

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Lauloa. The location was fantastic - right on the ocean, the grounds were impeccably kept and the condo was very clean and well equipped. A place that we would definitely stay again.

Ok location on island, no hairdryer, overall average

  • 3 of 5

We stayed at this property for 5 nights in December 2016. I'd give it 4 stars since location on island is ok - there is not much around except for the small harbor and a small grocery/deli. A decent beach is about half a mile further down the street. Condo itself is dated but is oceanfront in a well-maintained condo sub-division.

From a customer service perspective, Condo did not have a working hairdryer and when we asked for one, we were refused. We were told that the contract did not indicate there would be a hairdryer - I'd think most travelers would expect it same as us. In any case, it was provided once we complained to HomeAway and they intervened. It was disappointing (and frankly should have been unnecessary) to have to complain to HomeAway which is why I'd take off one more star for hospitality. On the other hand, there were a few nightly pests in the kitchen and a sticky lock which the owner promptly addressed.

Overall, now that we've toured the island, I'd say the condo is oceanfront but average in a not-much-happening part of the island. If all you want is a quiet oceanfront (not _beachfront_) stay for a decent price and don't mind the dated feel (or the lack of a hairdryer), you might still like this place - we will be staying someplace else next time.
