Overview

Maui Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Quiet, romantic, tropical Kana'i A Nalu, at the north end of Ma'alaea Bay in South Maui, provides a unique setting for your Hawaiian vacation. Our privately owned two bedroom two bath beachfront 'home away from home' is a corner unit on the second floor of a 4 story building at water's edge. Our private lanai, 30 feet from the ocean, looks across white sand beach and ocean to neighboring Islands and 10,000 foot Haleakala. It provides the perfect winter viewing spot to watch, up close and personal, the mother hump back whales train their young for their long trip back to the Northern Pacific

Enjoy all the benefits of a corner unit on the second floor: the added security of not being at ground level, the privacy of having bedroom windows looking out on the beautiful courtyard, pool and ocean instead of sidewalk and parking lot and the absence of foot traffic past your private lanai.

All prices are in US Dollars.

The master bedroom has a comfortable king-size bed with a private bath and wall to wall windows with full view of beach, courtyard and pool. The second bedroom, with a view of the pool, courtyard and ocean, has twin beds that can be made up as a king. A second bathroom is across a small alcove. A queen-size sleeper couch in the living room can accommodate up to 2 additional guests. The tropical furnishing throughout and the well stocked full kitchen and generous supply of beach gear will make your vacation one of easy comfort. Our private lanai gives us much pleasure - reading, eating, whale watching or just plain relaxing to the sound of the gentle surf. Our Green Sea Turtles are seen 10 to 15 feet offshore and the reef just off our beach delights the snorkelers. The beach in front of our condo continues to the north end of Kihei as part of the Kealia Nature Preserve: this translates to no development, no traffic and no problems - just 4 miles of empty white sand beach.

There is WiFi in the condo.

A five to ten minute walk from our condo presents a wide variety of activities: snorkel and sunset cruises from the marina, a world class aquarium, miniature golf park and bumper boats, a small shopping area and many different restaurants. The eating choices range from the #1 rated restaurant on the Island through several other excellent, less pricey eateries to Carl's Jr and a Deli/convenience store.

We provide the best of both worlds on Maui. If you are running away from work, snow and cold, or responsibilities in general, our laid back remnant of 'Old Maui' will have you relaxed in no time. If you want activity and want to see the Island, you are 15 minutes from the airport, 20 minutes from the North Shore, Lahaina, Kihei and Wailea, and 5 miles or less from 4 golf courses. When you are overwhelmed with all the activities available on the Island, trade the traffic and heavily populated tourist areas for the quiet serenity of Ma'alaea; dig your toes into the white sand beach in front of your own private lanai and unwind to the sound of the surf and the trade winds blowing thru palm fronds.

We Welcome You to Our Paradise Found!

About Don Huntress W01149170-01

We are Don, a retired airline pilot, who grew up in Chicago and Arizona: and Colleen, a retired interior designer, from Alberta and British Columbia, Canada.

Don Huntress W01149170-01 purchased this condo in 1998

Why Don Huntress W01149170-01 chose Maui

It was love at first sight. We had stayed for several years up in Kaanapali back in the early '70s and found it too crowded, too congested - even then. Now it was 1998 and we were giving Maui another try, staying up the street, before the beach starts. We walked through the grounds at Kana'i A Nalu and we were hooked. Still feel the same 17 years later.

What makes this condo unique

Relaxed Island living with a great view of the islands, beach and ocean. Love watching the whales come back every year - they are in so close we can watch the mothers teaching the babies. Enjoy the friendships developed over the years with the other owners and the many renters that return year after year.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your condo was perfect for us – so much more space than a hotel (the teens having their own bathroom was a blessing!!).

A great central location to explore the island and with such a fantastic view – we ate many meals on the balcony and made good use of the BBQ. Good surf right off the beach and even saw turtles several times. We enjoyed snorkeling at Molokini (went with the small Red Boat tours which I would highly recommend as we got to snorkel the drop as well). Did the bike ride down Haleakala, walked some of the ridge trails, hired SUPs and surfboards, drove around both volcanoes – loved some of the beaches by Hana.

The kids went paragliding which was a real treat captured on GoPro. Enjoyed a food tour of Lahaina and the more quirky fun scene of Paia. And tried the Maui Brewing Cos beers too.

So loads of photos and many fond memories.

Guestbook Comment

This is the 2nd time we stayed at Don and Colleen's condo. This latest time was 8/5/07 through 8/21/07. They have a very nice condo, great for a family. I love the location and that is an end unit. Master looks over the beach and pool, 2nd looks over the pool. No issues with not wanting to leave a window open in the 2nd bedroom since a lot of the time the second bedrooms face a walkway. Lanai looks directly onto the beach (35 ft). No A/C, but it is not needed with the tradewinds that come through the valley and through Maalaea. Nice central location 20-25 minutes to Lahina, 10 minutes to central Kihei, 10 minutes to Kahalui. Like not being in the middle of a "city", sugarcane field behind complex. A little market within walking distance up the street for the emergency milk or small needs. I like the tile floor throughout the unit, so much easier to see that it is clean than carpet. We usually had breakfast at the condo, 75 / 25 on dinner, using the BBQ's out by the pool is very nice setting (they have gas a charcoal). Had no problems with anything, a non issue which is how it is supposed to work.

Great place to stay in Maui

  • 5 of 5

Loved this condo. Great location with such a nice boogie boarding beach. Also a great walking beach. This unit has great ocean and mountain views. Second floor is awesome: privacy of not being ground floor but not too many steps. Also being an end unit added another window, and cooling breeze, to the Master suite. Lovely home away from home ! Thanks !!!

Paradise Delivered!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous stay at this beach front condo with a million dollar view! We the gentle surf, walks on the beach, seeing sea turtles while snorkeling, and being lulled to sleep the by waves at night. The condo was sparkling clean. The owner provided excellent communication throughout the transaction. We have stayed in other Kanai A Nalu properties, this condo unit is now our #1 choice!

Amazing view, comfortable accommodations, great family vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four (including 10-year-old and 8-year-old) stayed for 10 days in this condo in February 2016. The condo had everything we needed for an easy vacation of relaxation. The view from the lanai alone was worth the price of admission! The only drawback for us was the semi-privacy of the master bedroom, with sliding "Japanese style" doors right off the living room, but it was acceptable. We would definitely stay here again.

great value in a centralized location; some updating would make it perfect

  • 4 of 5

Location:

The condo is centrally located in Maui. You would still need a car as this area doesn't have shops/restaurants like in Lihaina. But you're close to the major attractions / beaches (within 20 to 30 min drive).

View:

The view from this unit is amazing. You get a great panoramic ocean view (you can't see the sunset because of the location of the complex). We took a walk along the beach everyday and it was very relaxing.

Amenities:

The condo has pretty much everything you need for a comfortable stay. The owner also has boogie boards/cooler which comes very handy for a long day at the beach. Some of the appliances/furniture definitely show its age and are pretty worn but that's acceptable at this price point. Also, there's no AC but the condo gets lots of breeze from the ocean so we didn't feel warm at all.

Cleanliness:

The condo was generally clean but it could definitely benefit from a deep cleaning as some windows/appliances/furniture had a lot of dust/dirt on them.

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed your vacation and enjoyed the island. It is a quiet location with a few restaurants nearby but you would need a car to get around. During the high season December - March we do our best to keep up with the back-to-back guests. Thank you for being a great guest : )

Great Value for the Money!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this unit. The crashing surf lulled us to sleep every night and the four miles of beach gave us lots of opportunity for our morning walks. Afternoons were spent by the immaculate pool. The unit itself was very well equipped and because it was an end unit, very quiet. Location was so quiet as tucked away on the harbor. We had spent a week up at Kaanapali before coming down to this quiet spot and would come back again. While there are no grocery stores and restaurants are few, Costco is only 15-20 minutes away and Kihei just a bit further. The owners' daughter kept in communication with us and we really appreciated the information on things to do in the area although we had a had time forcing ourselves to leave our own little piece of paradise for the week!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind review. I'm glad you liked the condo and I must agree that the location within the condo complex is great. As is the actual location on the island. I hope to hear from you again when you're planning a stay on Maui.
