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.

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
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.
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.
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!
While the condo itself was very spacious the location (in my opinion) left a lot to be desired. What the pictures and description of this condo do NOT tell you is that the condo (and more importantly the lanai) is located adjacent to a parking lot that is frequented by locals (I am assuming they were locals) who find it amusing to stay up until 4:00 in the morning with their music blaring and talking/laughing loudly. And while I understand it is located in a harbor what I didn't expect was the every morning 'wake up' call from the PA system from the snorkeling boat that is in port there. When I go on vacation to a tropical destination and pay to be ocean front I expect to go to sleep and wake up to the sound of the waves. If you are looking for a location that is close to snorkeling, fishing and the ocean center this place is for you, but if you are looking for a nice beach to be able to relax on and play in the ocean at OR peace and quiet this is not the condo for you... I guess it's all on how you look at it and for us this was not a good experience.
Cynthia was great however calling us (twice) to make sure we had everything we needed and I greatly appreciated the beach chairs and umbrellas.
Traveling with a family of four including two children ages 7 & 17, this was a perfect location!! We were able to walk to the aquarium, restaurants and the market. Enjoying our morning coffee on the lanai was an amazing start to our day. The kitchen was fully stocked which made it easy to feed the family before heading out on our adventures. We felt that Maalaea was a great quiet place to come home to after a busy day around the island. Cynthia has thought of everything when preparing this condo for travelers; books, brochures, items to use on the beach etc. The laundry facility is very close to the condo and the entire building is kept very tidy. The view from the pool is incredible and the little sandy beach area is perfect for watching turtles at night. We were extremely happy with our home away from home and are very thankful for Cynthia and her wonderful condo. I would LOVE to go back during whale season. Our only regret was not seeing them.
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.
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 :)
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.
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.
