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.
What a beautiful stay we had in your condo! It was nicely decorated and stocked with all essentials. My kids enjoyed using the body boards and exploring the long beach for crabs and turtles. They even found sea urchins in the rocky tide pools a short walk down the beach. This condo is located in an area that makes it easy to drive to all the sightseeing locations. One little tip for all of you that do laundry on vacation as I do....the manager's office will make change for you so that you will have quarters for the washer/dryer. :) Thanks for a great place to stay!
Great area !! Didn't take long to get to any place on the island ! Care taker of the property did a great job of keeping the condo nice! Everything you could need right in the condo!' Beach was wonderful !! A+++
The condo is very nice, very nicely furnished, very clean, very well stocked with a beautiful view! The beach is wonderful, turtles are always popping up and the snorkeling is great as well. We will most certainly be back!!
Everything is just so organized easy and comfortable stay and right on the ocean !! Barbeque grill was amazing and thoroughly enjoyed the stay.
Thank you so much.
This was my fourth trip to Maui. I have previously stayed at the Grand Wailea and Four Seasons in Wailea and the Westin in Kaanapali. This was a completely different experience from those resort complexes, in very good way.
The property is right on the beach, as seen in the pictures. The unit is clean, updated, appointed with helpful amenities (bogey boards and beach gear) and well maintained. The only concern for some may be a limited number of bar and restaurant options within walking distance. However, the location is a short 10 minute drive from great options in Kihei and the serenity provided at this location is a more than adequate trade off.
I found it to be far more relaxing than the large resort complexes mentioned above and it is substantially more reasonable on your pocket book. I would definitely visit this property again and would not hesitate to recommend it to others. This is a great find. You will not be disappointed.
Overall the property provided comfortable accommodations for myself and my five other family members (husband and four grown children). It's location on Maui provided a great launch to just about anywhere we wanted to visit. Enjoyed zip lining, hiking, snorkeling, whale watching, swimming with turtles, and sightseeing and eating at a variety of locations around the island.
I can make two suggestions/comments:
1. While the condo sleeps six, the main living area only seats four/five especially for watching tv or just sitting around to talk about the day. This could be corrected with different furniture; and,
2. The community smoking area is behind the building and residents and visitors often congregated late into the night to talk or smoke. Since the back of the condo is all windows, even though it is on the second floor, we often listened to conversations and smelled smoke well into the evenings.
This would not prevent me from visiting again and staying in the condo. Overall, it was a beautiful location and the owners and owner's representatives on the island were helpful and responsive to questions throughout.
