Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-7)

The Ma'alaea Kai Penthouse Suite is a two-story, non-smoking unit with two full bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, living room, and lanai. It can easily accommodate two couples plus kids or a family of six or seven. Probably the best feature is a two-story, open-beam ceiling living room, and lanai. A two-story, glass wall opens to a breathtaking view of the ocean.

As you plan your ultimate Maui vacation, don't settle for a 'partial ocean view.' The Ma'alaea Kai Penthouse Suite looks out on a huge ocean view and the pool, surrounded by meticulously-kept grounds. In the distance is the ancient Haleakala Volcano.

The Ma'alaea Kai Penthouse Suite is handsomely decorated with a Japanese-Hawaiian flair so consistent with the island's culture. The upstairs bedroom enjoys an open view of the ocean through the two-story windows. You can even see the ocean from the upstairs shower! The living room and lanai have a spacious feeling that literally mirrors the deep blue Pacific Ocean.

The kitchen is fully-equipped with everything you will need for a quick breakfast or a gourmet dinner served out on the lanai. All the appliances are new including microwave, toaster, coffee grinder for fresh Kona coffee, and a four-speed smoothie machine so you can enjoy all the incredible tropical fruit available here on Maui.

The Ma'alaea Kai is simply the best maintained and most beautiful condominium-hotel along the Ma'alaea Bay coast. A huge, putting green-style lawn and bright blue pool are the only things that separate you from the ocean. Palm trees sway in the tradewinds and gorgeous tropical flowers bloom everywhere. Maui Sea turtles have made their home here, you can see them from our lanai. At times we count up to 50 of them feeding off the rocks right in front of the condo. You can walk right in and snorkel with them along with many other tropical fish varieties. Explore the ancient underwater caverns that are just past the surf. Unlike most other resort areas on Maui, Hauoli Street is a short (one-fourth mile) tropical walk to Sugar Beach. Just north, a two-minute walk takes you to Ma'alaea Bay boat harbor for all your boat trips and shopping at the Ma'alaea Harbor Village. Trilogy is our favorite boat, we just took a trip to Lanai and saw schools of spinner dolphins on our way there and back! Amazing, more than we could count, heaven on earth!

Sugar Beach is just a five-minute walk from the Ma'alaea Kai and is probably the quietest beach on Maui, and one of the longest. You can walk or run along this beach for miles and pass only a few other people. Sugar Beach is great at sunrise or sunset or for catching rays midday without another soul in sight. Because it is tucked around the bay, Sugar Beach is an ideal place for children to enjoy the ocean where waves and undertow are always safe.

The Ma'alaea small boat harbor is one of only a few such harbors on Maui. This is the island's main launching point to the crystal-clear, tropical waters of Maui. Snorkeling trips, deep-sea fishing, and sunset cruises all begin right here and you do not even have to park. Above the harbor is the Ma'alaea Harbor Village, a small but quaint shopping area with four excellent restaurants. The Maui Ocean Center is also located here and a visit is highly recommended. The General Store has reopened and has excellent food and almost anything you need for cooking meals. It has great coffee and pastries, I always enjoy shopping at the store.

The Seascape Restaurant is my choice for lunch (now open for dinner too) and hosts a stunning open-air view of the harbor and ocean. Beach Bums is a great addition to the Harbor, you can have breakfast, while chatting with the local boat captains. The food is great and the price is great too. They also have a really nice Happy Hour...Mai Tai's are $3.50!

Sunrise from the Ma'alaea Kai Penthouse Suite is an experience in itself. Pre-dawn light brings the chatter of a thousand birds and iridescent blue waters. The trade winds ruffle the palm trees and caress your senses as you sit with your first cup of Kona coffee in the huge lanai. As the sun breaks over the ancient 10,000-foot Halealala Volcano, your face and your world are bathed in sunlight. Your penthouse is illuminated with a bright warmth that leaves you glowing. It is time to think about the day's activities or simply sit back and have another cup of coffee.

Ma'alaea Bay is Maui's most quiet, secluded, best-kept secret. It is truly the most centrally located vacation area on all of Maui, lying at the ocean front and between two volcanoes that formed the island. The old whaling port Lahaina is 18 miles to the north. Bustling Kihei is eight miles to the south, and it takes just ten minutes to drive from the airport to the Ma'alaea Kai Penthouse Suite.

Wonderful christmas trip!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 adults spent Christmas of 2016 at this lovely condo. Condo is well stocked with all the amenities and more. We found the area to be nice and central to many things. Loved beach bums and the general store. Owners very responsive to questions. Loved everything about the location and accommodations. It was so nice to be close to that long beach. Only one suggestion that I would have would be to provide maybe a list/directions to some important locations ( ie. grocery stores close by) One of the other places we had stayed had a journal where you could write recommendations of where to go, places to eat etc, for future tenants. Just a thought--but all in all no complaints from us! Thank you for sharing your paradise !

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We greatly enjoyed our stay at Maalaea Kai. The views from the top floor condo were breathtaking, both during the day & nite. The unit itself was comfortable & cozy, beatifully done and everything for cooking at home.The owners have truly spent a great deal of time decorating using both Japanese culural and beach themes. We loved watching the turtles just outside our building and the tucked away beach 5 min from the condo. Great stay. Thanks Todd & Stefani

Beautiful view

  • 4 of 5

This was a nice condo. The view was fabulous (especially from the loft bedroom in the morning). The only issue we had was ants in the kitchen and up in the loft by the sink. Other than that, the property was very nice.

Owner's Response: Sorry about the little bugs. Hawaii is a ripe environment for all kinds of pesky little intruders. Our building has a monthly spraying program and we can request addiononal service if we are notified. The unit is kept very clean and this is rarely a problem. We always want the best for our guests!
