Maui Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

PANARAMIC VIEW... CORNER UNIT WITH LARGE LANAI ON 2 SIDES. DISCOUNTS FOR MORE THAN 2 WEEKS. Please inquire.

Live the tropical island dream! -- the ocean spreading before you like a sailors fantasy, tranquil palm trees framing your view, a peaceful home for relaxing and getting ready for your adventures. This 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom condo in the Maalaea Yacht Marina condo building is so pleasant you may not want to leave! Check our Calendar for Availability.

Recently beautifully refurbished including AC installed, you have a very private vacation condo in an aloha Maui paradise with the ocean and exotic foliage right by you. Three walls of glass and a wrap-around lanai (balcony) create a seamless interface between the stunning view and the master bedroom and living area. Also free secure wireless internet! An assigned parking space and a security elevator add to your peace of mind of being in a quiet part of Maui away from traffic and crowds.

Look at sparkling sunrises over Haleakala, at over 10,000 feet. Feel the privacy of watching the quiet boat traffic going on excursions, fishing trips and whale watching while you are unobserved at breakfast on you third floor lanai. Watch the sun play off the islands of Molokini and Kahoolave and the West Maui Mountain through the day till the moon sparkles off the waters in front of you in the evening and the south shoreline of Kehei, Wailea and Makena twinkles with lights.

This is a magical place that we call a second home is on the 3rd floor of a quiet 4 floor condo building. You will find it furnished with kitchen amenities, books (including many Maui guides), beach gear - all the things you'd want for staying weeks at a time in this enchanting location. We visit several times a year to care for our place and an on-island agent is available to you. You will get her contact information when you make your final reservation payment. For a lot MORE PHOTOS click the link below just above the calendar for our personal website.

As it is centrally located on the island, you are 15 minutes from the airport and the large grocery stores of Kahului and Kehei. (There is a well stocked convenience grocery in the next building.) You are well situated for daily excursions to the South Shore, Lahaina, the road to Hana or Upcountry. Learn more about these adventures from our personal guest binder in the condo and our personal condo website referenced in the link below.

We enjoy the convenience of a mini-market downstairs in the adjacent condo building and a General Store a very short walk away. Both of these have a deli, a selection of groceries and drug-store items, plus island souvenirs. A five minute walk further along to Harbor Village brings more restaurants and snack food venues. We get delicious meals at the Harbor Village. Enjoy the harbor scene during a meal at the harbor side Beach Bums Bar and Grill - or several other choices for food! The ice cream and cookie shop also makes shaved ice. Yum!

Besides the shops with a variety of clothing, souvenirs and sundries (including a branch of Maui Dive Shop where you can rent snorkel equipment or arrange dive trips), the Harbor Village is home to The Ocean Center, a world class aquarium. Nearby you also have a miniature golf course and the convenience of a gas station. At the end of the short street on which the condo is located, you'll find a beach park that is the beginning of three miles of beach reserve, where we enjoy sunrise strolls, beach combing and bird watching.

We think you'll find our home-away-from-home relaxing and inviting and you'll enjoy the quality we added. You'll want to spend days there on the lanai, enjoying the birds in the monkey pod tree or palm trees just off the lanai and the boats sailing in and out of the small harbor. Or the solar heated salt water pool will entice you with its view right off to the spectacular tropical ocean. When you want to call home and connect with your family or friends, long distance is free to all USA States and Canada. And when you are ready to venture out, you'll see that this is a great choice for a home base on your vacation in Paradise.

Credit Card payments available through PayPal.

About The Owner

We are Jim and Cynthia, from Reno, Nevada. Jim is a retired University Professor and Cynthia a retired first grade teacher. This picture shows us doing a favorite hike on Maui where we love all the opportunity for diverse outdoor activities. We get to be in our condo several times a year which allows us to make improvements on a regular basis (and, of course, have a Great Vacation!). We have a good property manager whose office is near the condo to take care of cleaning and upkeep on a regular basis. Maui is our favorite of the islands for its beaches, snorkeling, arts community and fabulous scenery. We love to travel and hope you enjoy one of our favorite places for a vacation.

The Owner purchased this condo in 1999

Why The Owner chose Maui

We love the sense of paradise we get when we are at our condo. Maalaea is away from the hustle and bustle of very touristy areas, yet just steps away from the romantic peacefulness of our palm trees and ocean splendor there are a variety of restaurants, shops and even a small grocery store. When we were looking to buy a condo we had stayed both in the south and the west on other trips to Maui. When we saw the island feel of this little corner of Maui and a whale breached right before our eyes a few minutes after entering this condo, we were more than charmed. We were convinced this was perfect for a tropical island dream.

What makes this condo unique

One of the things we enjoy so much is the fact of our corner condo having an extra large lanai that wraps around and gives us such a sense of openness. It feels very private being on the third floor with trees near us and the water of the Bay so close we could throw a coconut into it! The walls of window in the condo have floor to ceiling curtains that give a spacious feeling, not the narrow-box closeness of some condos. Besides these pleasures of the condo itself, we enjoy walking over to Harbor Village for the restaurants, some shopping, or to book a cruise or a whale watch. The Maui Ocean Center there is a world class aquarium, so we get at least a week membership. Having a gas station less than a minute drive away and miles of beach (a Nature Reserve that won't be built up) stretching the other direction are part of the benefits of our location.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A few weeks ago a family asking about our condo for a summer stay wanted some references, since I hadn't put in a Guest Book online. Of course, I provided references but also decided to add the Guest Book. So I asked various guests from the last several years to make comments. Right now I am at the condo myself. One of my very favorite things to do right away is read the guest book in the condo. We started our second guest book when we were here in December and what a fun time I just had reading the comments since then! I had to get some paper and make notes of some new places to go. The guests have left such good ideas of favorite places to eat and activities to do. You will get good ideas from "regular people" as well as from the many books we have for you on Maui. My goal is to help our guests have a wonderful vacation... and my guests help me have one, too!

No words to express

  • 5 of 5

Actually there are no words that can express how much we loved this wonderful place. It´s more than worth going there and experiencing it on your own. We came as a family from Germany and appreciated Cynthia´s and her agent´s friendly and helpful manner. The condo has an breathtaking view and is fully equipped with everything you need to enjoy your stay. There are so many books and flyers to help you explore Maui that your time won't allow you to discover everything and make you want to come back again. We highly recommend this condo and would always come back to Cynthia's again.

Repeat visit!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit and stay in this amazing condo! Can't get enough of beautiful Maui, and staying at Cynthia's condo is one of the best parts! The condo is fully equipped, exceptionally clean, and has the best location for exploring the beautiful Island of Maui! As it was our second visit, we spent much more time in the Maalae'a area, walking sugar beach, watching the whales, eating at some of the local restaurants. Our favourite place is the General store where you can get fantastic coffee and pastries and a very good sandwich at lunch! It is a relatively easy drive to get anywhere to explore, our favourite places are Pai'a, Makawao, must try the bakery :), and Lahaina (15 minutes drive unless you hit traffic)! Our new guilty pleasure was walking the beach walk in Kaanapali! It was another wonderful Maui holiday and staying at this condo and working with Cynthia makes our Maui dreaming so much easier. Mahalo Cynthia! We will be back :)

Owner's Response: I am so happy that you spent a lot of your Second Stay in the Maalaea area! It has a lot to offer, yet often is overlooked for the more touristy areas of large properties and hustle and bustle. And when you come again, it will really feel like you are Coming Home! -Cynthia

Who could ask for more

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time in Maui and enjoyed coming home each evening to this comfortable condo. It's located in a great central area and has a lovely view from the balcony. The beach, just downstairs, was loaded with turtles!! This was an unexpected surprise. I would highly recommend this condo.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review! We like the turtles, too. It is fun to watch them ride the surf when we go for a beach walk at the miles-long beach just down from the condo. Many opportunities to see turtles are one of the things we love about Maui. Another is having our lovely condo to come back to every day! I'm glad you enjoyed it, too. -Cynthia

Lovely Time in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Some vacations are so busy we need to rest from our vacation upon returning home. Not so with our wonderful stay in Maui. The owners were accomodating and friendly. The condo fit our every need, especially the beautiful morning sunrises from the large veranda. We walked, shopped, and ate locally. The location was convenient. I highly recommend this condominium vacation to others.

Owner's Response: That is one thing I love about our condo in our lovely location. You can be out of the hustle and bustle and really absorb the feeling of tropical beauty. Conveniences (food, shopping) are nearby but the tranquility of the area - the comfort of the large lanai, the pleasure of quietly watching harbor activity, and long, peaceful beach walks when the mood strikes -- all this makes for a vacation you don't have to have a vacation from! I'm so glad you found that zen at our condo. - Cynthia

Amazing!!!!

  • 5 of 5

The location of the condo is the best!!! Easy access to anything; that is if you want to leave-

We loved the condo and the "little beach" so much we spent many relaxing hours there-

the day before we left two manta rays come into the harbor and frolicked right in front of the lanai - it was a treat to see these beautiful creatures. Also enjoyed the bobbing heads of the sea turtles every day. Must see is Sugar Beach right near the condo - so wonderful. We were the only ones there! My sister's first time to Hawaii and she fell in love and truly enjoyed the well equipped and tastefully decorated condo. Thanks Cynthia

Owner's Response: Thanks for writing! I am so happy that you enjoyed our lovely condo so much. We can't wait to get back there. Knowing that it was your sister's first time to Maui, I was very eager to anticipate that she would love every part of her experiences. How fun that the turtles and rays checked in with you to delight your days :-) I was glad I was able to make various suggestions to you that added to your vacation. I hope you return soon to your amazing island home. Aloha! Cynthia
