Overview

Wailuku Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 2 full baths - Honeymoon Oceanfront Master Suite - sleeps 6 -

This condo has what you come to Maui for. Twenty feet from the water. Must See 'VIRTUAL TOUR' - Link at bottom of site just above the Guest Reviews. We have the best Maui location in Maalaea. (peaceful, uncrowded and non 'touristy'). The best building in Maalaea - Kanai a Nalu (first and best one on the 4 mile beach). The best unit (401) in Kanai a Nalu (oceanfront corner - fantastic view from every window). Fall asleep to the gentle sound of the surf outside your bedroom window and wake to a beautiful Maui sunrise across the bay over magnificent 10,000 foot Haleakala. Eat breakfast on your lanai while you watch whales and surfers on the bay below you. Unobstructed views ( the best in Maalaea) from every window - even the kitchen looks across swaying sugar cane fields to the West Maui Mountains. Both bedrooms and the living room have fantastic views but also complete privacy (We never shut the curtains). Kitchen is totally remodeled and Brand New. New island style furniture including a new Beautyrest king size bed, new carpet, very comfortable tropic style living room set , free wireless DSL, side by side fridge with filtered water/ice in door, Air Conditioning, washer -dryer. We just added a 37' flat screen HD TV with a blue ray DVD that can wirelessly access your Netflix account .

Maalaea and Kanai a Nalu: Maalaea is a small village that is the best of both worlds. We are far enough away from the traffic and 'shoulder to shoulder' tourist areas that you can truly relax and appreciate what Maui living is really about. Yet we are the most central spot on the island for easy access to all that Maui has to offer. Our Kanai-a-Nalu condo complex is a four-story, U-shaped building with a beautiful courtyard that is open to the ocean. It shelters a wonderful tile swimming pool on the ocean's edge. Parents can sit under a tree and watch their children -- both in the swimming pool and on the beach at the same time. You may decide to walk down to Maalaea Harbor to take a whale watching, snorkeling, fishing, or sunset dinner cruise. The harbor area also boasts the newly constructed Maui Ocean Center, a world-class marine aquarium considered to be the best in the Islands. It also offers several fine ocean view restaurants, interesting shops, and places to buy fixings for a quick meal 'at home'.

Author Recommendation and Guest Book: We knew we liked the Maalaea area and our condo (Kanai-a-Nalu) in particular. This is what the authors of PARADISE FAMILY GUIDE TO MAUI have to say: 'Have you wondered where the authors of this guide stay? If we aren't moving around the island, sampling different properties, you'll find us catching our breath here (Kanai-a-Nalu), and enjoying the sunny shores and gentle breezes of Maalaea.'

Below are coments from our Gueast book in the condo. Be sure to read the Reviews others have entered directly on this website. Many gueats have returned -even all way the from Germany

We were here for our honeymoon and it couldn't have been more perfect. The location of this condo gave us the relaxation and seclusion that was very much needed after a busy summer. -- CA

We enjoyed our two-week stay -- just wish it could have been longer. Your condo is equipped with everything anyone could ever need and the location is certainly the best. Thank you for sharing with us. - Memphis, TN

More Guest Book: I think we did everything possible during our ten-day stay. This condo gave us convenient access to the whole island. -- The Murtons - Plano, TX

Thank you for letting us stay at your beautiful condo. The view was perfect for watching whales, myna birds and beachcombers. -- Pritchard - Portland, OR

We are leaving today after two lovely months in your condo. It is the best furnished one we've stayed in. Thanks for everything you've done to make this condo so homelike. -- Biesanz - Winona, MN

This trip to Maui makes it number four, and all four times we stayed at Kanai -a- Nalu. From the Lanai we watched the waves roll in and the whales jump. Thanks for making our 4th trip to Maui a fantastic one! -- Giegoldt - Deerfield, IL

The last two weeks will go into our fond memories book. This spot cannot be beat for natural beauty, comfort and convenience. -- Keron - Seattle, WA

PERFECT!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was the most wonderful location and we loved every minute here!!The condo was absolutely the best. Never used the AC, the breezes were enough to keep it cool. It was so clean and had everything we needed. We loved seeing all the whales and surfers right off the balcony and hearing the waves at night. Lots of great adventures close by. Owner was very easy to deal with and quick to reply to emails and questions. Our only regret is that our vacations wasn't longer!

Owner's Response: We were happy to hear that the guests enjoyed our condo so much. This is the latest comment but very similar to many we get. People never have regrets about staying at "Maalaea Magic".

Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in your property! The property was centrally located on the island which gave us easy access to all the sights. We spent a lot of time enjoying the outstanding beach view and ocean breezes from the lanai. The view included watching sea turtles. The condo was quiet, very well maintained and stocked with needed items to make our trip a wonderful experience. Thank you for sharing. We would definitely love to return!

Excellant Location great property

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. The property was wonderful. We were able to walk out the door and swim in the ocean and then come back and get in the even warmer fresh water pool. Each evening on the lanai we would enjoy looking out at the ocean as the sun was setting. Great location for doing the zip lines and dive to Molikini one was 10 minutes from our condo the second was just down the street at the harbor.

Wow, what a view!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was fantastic! Love just sitting on the lanai drinking coffee in the morning. We saw a giant turtle swimming from our lanai. There was a great ocean breeze when you open the front door. It had a security screen door with the bold which made me feel comfortable. We went at a time where they were working on the flooring at the office so the closest elevator to us was closed but such a minor inconvenience. The property was neat and clean. The location was great. Would definitely come back and would recommend this location to anyone interested in vacationing in Maui.

Kanai a Nalu is the best (no ka 'oi)

  • 5 of 5

I hardly know where to begin. In every aspect, this place is perfect. The location is great – directly overlooking a magnificent beach just 20 feet from our lanai, on a quiet dead-end road, and within easy reach of all the places you want to see and explore. Walking the beach and watching all the honu (turtles) was an every morning treat. The 4th floor corner location provided quiet and privacy. Furnishings were lovely, the beds comfy, the kitchen had everything we could possibly need and there were loads of things for the beach (towels, boogie boards, etc.). Falling asleep to the sound of the waves was the best. Although there was air conditioning available, we definitely did not need it; we just kept the front door open to provide a wonderful cross-breeze. The condo grounds were very well kept, the pool was pristine and the guests and owners we met were all so friendly. Dealing with the owner of this unit was a pleasure. (Thanks, Mike, for your patience with all my before-trip questions!) What can I say? Everything was fantastic! We look forward to planning another trip to Kanai a Nalu and this lovely condo.

Awesome condo with great views!

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this condo. Dealing with the owner and check-in once we arrived was a breeze. The views of the ocean and beach were spectacular from this top floor unit and being on the corner of the complex provided a little extra privacy. The kitchen was nicely upgraded and provided everything we needed. Great pool for our kids to swim in and the direct beach access was awesome! We were able to swim and surf right in front of the condo and snorkel with the turtles just a short walk down the beach. The boogie boards, beach chairs, beach umbrella and cooler were much appreciated and came in handy for those day trips to other parts of the island. My only negative comment is I think saying the condo sleeps 6 is somewhat misleading. We were 3 adults and 2 children and the wicker futon/couch doesn’t really work that well as a bed, especially for an adult. Other than that I would highly recommend this condo if you are visiting Maui.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay. Sorry about the misunderstanding on the sleeping arrangements for the fifth person. The living room couch was not meant for sleeping. We actually have two futons in the bedroom closet. These each make into a twin bed. When there is just one "extra" person the guests will sometimes stack the futons to make an even thicker mattress. I do wish you had contacted me or our management company during your stay so we could have helped make the 5th person comfortable. Mike and Priscilla

You know Maui but do you know Maalaea? Maalaea is a small non touristy ocean front village - the most central location on Maui for very easy access to all that our island has to offer. It is the best 'home base' to explore Maui from then come back to relax in our heated pool, on the uncrowded beach or in the shade under our oceanfront trees while your dinner grills on the barbecue. We are on a four mile beach - the longest in the islands. Maalaea Harbor down the street is home to the Maui Ocean Center - a world class aquarium, great restaurants and shops, ocean activities such as whale watching, snorkel cruises, deep sea fishing, or sunset dinner cruises. You can surf right out in front of condo (very rare in Hawaii). There is a world class wave known as the Maalaea Freight Train just down the beach and two very easy and fun waves exactly in front of Kanai a Nalu. People also enjoy snorkeling, beachcombing, surf fishing, or birdwatching. It is a safe beach for children. There is often

surfing right out front of the condo.

Both bedrooms have their own bathroom so it also makes the condo ideal for two couples or a family. One thing I particularly like about my condo as compared to most others in Kanai a Nalu, and in Maalaea for that matter, is the complete privacy of the bedrooms. No one can look in but you have fantastic views and never need to cover the window

Notes:

Our kitchen has been updated with Corian countertops, beautiful dark wood cabinets, recessed lighting, and stainless steel appliances including a side by side refrigerator with filtered water and ice in the door. The kitchen has everything from a blender to a coffee maker. We just added high speed DSL with a wireless router so you can even use your laptop on the beach. I actually 'work' from here. With my cell phone and DSL I can be at the 'office' while sitting on my lanai and watching the surfers or whales (in season). The new 30 inch HD television has a built in DVD player. Oh, yes, we also have a gazillion cable stations. There are beach chairs and at least two coolers to take on your picnics or island adventure. We just added a 37' flat screen in the bedroom with a blue ray DVD player that can wirelessly access your Netflix account.
