Maalaea Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

This beautiful, upgraded, two-bedroom, two-bath condominium corner unit is 15 yards from the waters of Ma'alaea Bay with a spectacular view of Mount Haleakala, Molikini, and Kaho'lawe Island from the second floor lanai with southeast to southwest views. Excise Tax # W 00551040-02

The Maalaea Kai condominium is located between the Ma'alaea small boat harbor and the Ma'alaea Beach. The four-mile, crescent-shaped beach is great for jogging, strolling, and whale watching during the winter. It parallels a US national park service bird sanctuary, which tends to reduce popular beach access. The beach, despite its beauty and panoramic views, is virtually crowd free.

It is a three-minute walk to the Ma'alaea Harbor, Maui Aquarium, shops, and restaurants. Maalaea is known for its seclusion, but is only 15 minutes from activities in Lahaina and South Maui. Nineteen golf courses are located within five to 20 minutes from the condominium. Listen to the sounds of the ocean as you sleep.

Why Dawn Theodore chose Maui

We fell in love with unit which was in the building where my mother owned a condo for the past 24 years. The corner unit with the views of Haleakala in the morning. You could not be closer to the ocean unless you were on it in a boat. I love hearing the waves crash all night long from the Master Bedroom. Centrally located to the entire island. Great ocean breezes!

What makes this condo unique

Great views of the the whales during the winter and great views of Molikini. I love the BBQ on the ocean. The beach that you can walk on all the way to Kihei. The aquarium is a short walk as is the harbor for a boat trip to Lanai or Molikini. This is a great place to relax and unwind from the stresses of life.

We high;y recommend the following car rental service so you can receive a discount.

key word to receive discount is Maalaea. Please ask for Sandee Crossland

Amazing Views and very comfortable condo

  • 5 of 5

Although our stay was short, I will definitely return to rent this condo again! The views are the best on the island. I loved the sound of the ocean from the bedroom and the living room. I had breakfast on the lanai. The condo had everything to make my stay very comfortable and to feel at home. I am so happy I found this place for our last few days in paradise. The owner was very responsive when we needed a place to stay last minute. We enjoyed the BBQ by the ocean and loved the pool and grounds. I would definitely recommend this condo to anyone who is traveling to Maui.

Loved it! And the view is incredible

  • 5 of 5

A great location. Central to everything on the island. Windy but just need to keep the door closed. Loved sitting on the Lanai and watching the surfers and the turtles. Thank you for sharing your place!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you David! So glad you enjoyed the condo and the beautiful views from the lanai. I don't think there is a better place on the island to enjoy the views. Come back and visit us again!

Great View, slight bug problem

  • 3 of 5

The view from this condo is awesome and the location of the parking spot and unit is great as well, giving you the most privacy.

The issue we had is that there were possibly fleas or bed bugs in the master bedroom. I slept in the bed with my wife and toddler and we had multiple clusters of bites around our feet and legs, which can only be from bed bugs or fleas. I don't know if the renters before us brought their pets with them or what, but waking up every morning with new bites made it uncomfortable for our family.

The unit could also use some updating as the bathroom fan didn't work in the master bathroom, screens have holes in them (we were bitten by mosquitos too), carpet was run down, fridge has rust on the outside, to name a few things. Overall we had a good time, the location is great, the view was great, the bugs just really put a damper on the trip. I wouldn't stay in that unit again.

Owner's Response: Aloha Dan, I am glad you liked the view and the parking spot. I am very sorry to hear about your bug problem. We have all our beds in contained air tight covers to avoid any type of bed bugs. There are definitely mosquitos because it is an island. Our screens were just replaced in March, but if you would have contacted me during your stay, I would have had them fixed as well as the fan in the bathroom.. We have a handyman on call at all times. We update our unit every year and this is really the first complaint we have ever received about this unit in the past 12 years we have owned it. I wish you would have called me during your time there so we could have resolved any problems that you had on the spot. Mahalo for staying with us! Dawn and Dean Theodore

Homie and relaxing

  • 4 of 5

Our stay at Maalaea Kai was awesome! We felt very at home! The view, the sound of the ocean, and the soft pillows help us to settle in and relax upon arrival. The condo is in a convenient location and filled with everything one could hope for for a fun stay on Maui.ill come back and rent this place again.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Loved this place. Great Location. Very clean. Two good size bedrooms with private baths and plenty of towels. One bath had Blow Dryer and a Curling Iron.. Lots of counter space in the fully equipped kitchen. Dining and Family room combo with a table that sits four and a Couch and TV. Up close Ocean Views with miles of a great sandy beach just a short walk. On site Pool and Bar B Ques with friendly neighbors.. Harbor with Restaurants and Bar and Deli and shops just a short walk. Close to everything. On the down side ..Mosquitoes galore.. but after searching I found plenty of mosquito repellant there and I purchased lots of Citronella candles that I left there.. After that we were fine. Dawn was very accommodating with our spur of the moment trip. Thanks Dawn we had a blast and we will be back :)

Nicest Property in Maalaea

  • 4 of 5

It is always difficult to start a many good things to say. This property, by far, is the nicest, cleanest and most well kept of any on the Maalaea condo strip. The property is older, probably from the early 70s, but the exterior has a reasonably new coat of paint, the pool is perfect (and bath water warm), and has an elevator making each floor accessible. The parking space for the unit is...well, right there in front of the unit. It couldn't be any closer or more convenient. The interior has lots of mirrors (very '70s) making it look a little larger. The kitchen was nice and well equiped. The bedrooms are spacious, with more mirrors. Master has a king size; 2nd Bedroom was set up with a king that is convertable to two twins. The furniture on the lanai is functional, and the ocean couldn't be closer (30 feet from the window) unless you were in it. The sounds lull you to sleep every night. Bathrooms were both clean and functional, with lots of hot water and good pressure. The WiFi was great and easily supported our 4 users. The outdoor, communal grills were AWESOME...professional grade, very new and clean, and ready to use!

To improve your stay (or set your expectations), the following items should be noted: The unit does NOT have air conditioning, but the constant breeze (15-20 kts ALL THE TIME) is perfect to cool the unit, both day and night. Leaving the windows open does create a thin layer of dust inside the unit, but it is what it is. Also, the unit does NOT have a washer dryer. There is one shown in the pictures, but we didn't read the unit details closely, and it clearly says washer dryer is on the floor, but not in the unit. Finally, there is not a beach in front of or near the property. It is a retaining wall with rocks at the ocean level. There is a point of ocean access, but only for the adventurous that wish to climb over the rocks. There is a beach at the end of the road, at least two hundred yards east of the property. This wasn't convenient for our teenagers who like to play in the waves and snorkel.

We had a wonderful stay, and the location of the condo (in relationship to other areas of Maui) was extremely convenient. Easy to Lahaina, easy to Kihei, easy to the Airport and north shore. We hope to visit Maui again, and if we make it back, we'll call Dawn and Dean. Thanks.

Owner's Response: Thank you Rich and Terri for your kind words. We love the ocean breeze and have never felt the need for an air conditioner in Maalaea. We look forward to having your return on your next visit to Maui! Mahalo, Dawn and Dean
