About the property

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

I am traveling with limited internet connection from Friday 5/12 until Monday 5/29. Please be patient because it may take a few days for you to get a response. This condo has what you come to Maui for. Twenty feet from the water. 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). And maybe 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

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.

Excellent Accommodations and Location

  • 5 of 5

This property is set in a quaint little area of about a dozen other condo's and miles of beach (Sugar Beach) that is lightly used allowing much privacy and at times, all to yourself. The centralized location of Maalaea allows easy access and quick driving times to other attractions on the island in the central and south end, as opposed to the always jammed highway to Lahaina, which may add 1/2 hour to an hour to the trip. Just a 15 minute drive will get you groceries and other essentials you may need (Kahului-WalMart/Target/Costco and Kehei-smaller chain grocery).

We were very happy with the cleanliness of the room and most importantly, the view. Being in the corner and on the top floor allows privacy and a spectacular view in each direction. Having direct access to the beach and an ocean view was what we were looking for a got it! Although the snorkeling was murky and sparse with fish, we did see turtles on a daily basis close to the shore. About 500 yards south it is much clearer with about a dozen turtles and more sea-life.

When looking for accommodations we wanted a unit that had A/C as an option. This is certainly a lifesaver in July but luckily the trade winds provided some cooler air most of the time and the unit was used only a few times.

Also very helpful was the availability of many chairs, umbrella's, boogie boards, binoculars, premium air-mattresses and pretty much everything you need for your trip to avoid renting those items.

The pool was clean and not very crowded. There are 2 gas grills available but I recommend you get a spot around 4'ish or earlier since there is a constant flow of users until around 7:30, as I found out one evening. The chairs and table on the deck allows comfort for your daily morning coffee or afternoon drink listening to the ocean. There was a constant breeze day and night due to the Trade Winds, along with crashing waves so it can be a little noisy when you are trying to sleep, but that is the sacrifice for the accommodations.

Thank You Again for this awesome experience and we will recommend this unit to others!!!

Beautiful peaceful location

  • 4 of 5

We were very happy with the condo during our stay in Hawaii. It was a perfect size for 4 adults to live comfortably. The condo was fully stocked and even had extras we weren't expecting. They had boogie boards, chairs and a cooler for use on the beach which was a huge plus. The location was centrally located for visiting all parts of the island. The view and sunrises were amazing and right outside the condo. We highly recommend this condo for rent.

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.
