My husband John and I just love the sun and long walks on beach so when we started thinking about investing in real estate and where we wanted to retire we couldn't find a better place than Maui. We were married on Maui in 1996 on Big Beach and have returned every year since to visit the island and the beach we were married on. Our whole family loves to snorkle, dive, fish and any other water sport we can find. We hope to someday retire in Maui in our condo on the beach.
Laury Miller purchased this condo in 2009
We chose Maalaea because it is central to the entire South side of the island with Lahaina only 20 minutes away and Kihei and Wailea only 10 minutes away. It is also only about 15 minutes from the airport. We also love to watch the whales when they come to have their young in the winter and Maalaea is the perfect location to view the whales. The beach in front of our unit wraps around toward Kihei where the Turtles go to lay their eggs.
The Lanai is only 40 feet from the start of a 5 mile long beach that goes all the way to Kihei. Hono Kai is one of the few complexes in Maalaea that is directly on the beach. Every room in the Condo has a view of the Beach and the Ocean. The Condo has been completely remodeled and boasts all new appliances etc... There is snorkeling directly in front of the complex with a pool also overlooking the beach. Whales are known to frequent the Maalaea Harbor area during the winter months and have their calves. The beach also leads to the area the Turtles go to lay their eggs and nest so great viewing of the Turtles. Most water activities to Molokini, snorkeling, diving, fishing etc...leave from the Maalaea Marina which is walking distance. Not to mention the close access to shopping and resturants in the Marina Village. Maalaea also is the home to one of the largest Aquariums in Hawaii. The Condo grounds are clean and well kept and offer a BBQ area as well as Pool and lounging areas.
We've been here multiple times and keep coming back. We prefer smaller unpretentious places like this...but it is a very nice vacation condo at the end of the road right on a long walkable sand beach. Maalaea is a very convenient location as well. The unit is very comfortable for four people and would be ok for six.
Condo was adequate for quick meals, sleeping and enjoying the beach. Needs lots of
updates called TLC with new paint job. Some screens have holes (above air conditioner
and main floor bedroom - lets bugs in). Only 4 coffee cups in kitchen - need twice that
many. Kitchen faucet needs work as it is impossible to turn. How about a decent pizza
cutter? Blow dryer in main floor bathroom is nonfunctional (broken when we arrived).
Carpet on stairs and main floor bedroom is filthy. Replace with tile or hard wood. Loved
the balcony and surf board table. Spent hours watching turtles and after dark.
We really enjoyed our short stay at your condo. It was more that we had hoped for. It was centrally located, well equipped, and the oceanfront view from the balcony are amazing. The only I regret is that I wished we had stayed longer. Otherwise everything was perfect. I would definitely come back.
Thank You John and Laury
This condo is absolutely amazing. It is centrally located and within 20-30 minutes you can pretty much get everywhere on the island.
The beach in front of the condo is really nice. Great sand and really nice coral reef for snorkelling (even for beginners). As I had previously read that the area is really windy, I was worried that the waves would be too big for snorkelling, but we had an amazing month with quiet water most of the time. So we were able to do a lot of snorkelling and the variety of fish is pretty impressive. We even saw two small octopus and LOTS of turtles (which was the highlight of my trip). We did a lot of snorkel on others beaches (at least 5 other popular snorkeling spots/beaches) but we found that the best spot for this activity was right in front of our condo, even compared to Black rock.
As for the windy area, it was perfect for us who wanted to take advantage of the nice breeze instead of using the AC. As the condo offers windows on 3 sides, the nice breeze pass through it and offer just the perfect temperature, day and night.
The condo is super well equipped with pretty much everything you need. Just name it and it's there!
And for the parking, we had two cars and never had trouble finding a spot.
If I absolutely have to say something 'less positive' about it, I would say that we would have liked more Rubbermaid/Tupperware type containers. And that's only because we stayed for a month and we were making our own lunch for the beach. But honestly, that's the only negative comment I can come up with, so you can imagine that the rest is pretty much close to perfection. For us anyway it was : )
Oh, and seeing whales from the lanai was another highlight for us. And on calm days, when you swim, just put your head underwater and you can hear them sing. It's so worth it!
Also, everybody we talked to (visitors, residents, staff, maintenance...) at the condo were great. Always a smile and great discussions.
I could go on and on, but I'm out of space... : ) So overall, we were very impressed and could not have found a better place for our stay. Laury is super fast in responding to email and she has a great team managing the property for her. It makes everything simple and enjoyable.
Honestly, we totally loved every single minute of it.
Thank you Laury and John for the amazing stay!
Hope to come back one day.

This relaxing well equipped condo was the perfect spot for our family to enjoy our first visit to Maui. The beach outside is easily accessible and stretches on for a great walk by the waterfront. Views from the balcony are superb. The condo is located separate from town so a car is important to getting around, however this provided more privacy and space from the busyness. Would definitely recommend!
We had the opportunity to stay at this property for 2 weeks and loved every minute of it! The view and direct access to the beach are worth every penny: we were even lucky enough to see whales from the balcony. The location is wonderful and it's just a short drive to many different restaurants, shopping areas, or tourist locations. It's even walking distance from a market, aquarium, and several restaurants. The kitchen is stocked with all appliances and tools that you might need.
We had our 18-month-old and this property has baby gates and a pack-n-play, so that very helpful. It is located on the 2nd story of the complex: just 2 short flights of stairs. That is the only detail that might be a good "head's up" if you have very young children or babies to carry up or down.
I highly recommend this spot and look forward to staying here again in the future!
