Maui Condo Rental Photos and Description

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

Unique newly renovated penthouse at the Maalaea Yacht Marina condo complex with private Wrap Around lanai is perfect for watching boats cruise in and out of one of Maui's most scenic and active harbors. Wake up to unobstructed panoramic views of Molokini, Kahoolawe, Maui's south shore, and Haleakala. With spectacular sunrises and sunsets, this is one penthouse you will always remember.

Newly installed central air conditioning units allows you to set the desired temperature in each area of the penthouse to your own personal comfort level. This amenity is only available in the penthouse unit.

This tastefully furnished, top floor/corner unit penthouse with 3 floor to ceiling glass walls gives the feeling of being suspended over the ocean! Completely redecorated with a new comfortable California king bed in the master suite, and two stylish twins in the second bedroom. Both have their own private newly updated and remodeled bathrooms.

Completely redsigned and updated kitchen boast granite counter tops. Recently installed Viking appliances make cooking

a pleasure while enjoying ocean views.

We designed the penthouse with warm tropical colors, granite, original artwork, rare koa wood and one of a kind hand carved furniture. As this is our second home, you will find more than the normal amenities to make your vacation extremely comfortable.

Steps away you will find one of Maui's undeveloped three-mile beaches perfect for strolling, bird watching, shell collecting, snorkeling, and all water sports.

Walk to eight restaurants, three convenience stores, Maui's new aquarium, shopping center, and multiple boating activities/seasonal whale watching.

Lounge on the plush new swivel rockers out on the lanai. From this position you can see the world famous “freight train” wave. You can either admire the world’s fastest wave, or jump in and surf it yourself!

At night enjoy the twinkling lights of the sweeping Wailea coast. The mornings are just as spectacular - enjoy your steaming cup of coffee while watching the magnificent sunrise over Haleakala.

Within walking distance to fishing, scuba diving, snorkeling,

sunset cruises, whale watching, and sailing charters -- Absolute Convenience!

You have discovered one of Maalaea’s most exclusive units. The grounds feature an ocean front swimming pool with a new stainless steel gas barbeque area. Enjoy beautifully

landscaped tropical grounds with native flowering plants. All the amenities of a larger resort, except crowd free, centrally located and reasonably priced!

Why Susan Fereira chose Maui

Purchased this property for its unique, relaxed and 'old Hawaii' feeling. Centrally located, oceanfront and on whale sanctuary with panoramic views. Love to watch the movement of the boats.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We came to celebrate our 25th anniversary and had our best ever time on Maui. The non-stop whale

watching from the lanai kept us riveted! My only complaint is that I only had time to read one book-couldn't take my eyes off the bay long enought to read.

We felt comfortable and private and the non-stop breezes meant the lanai was a perfect cool place to relax after revisiting all our favorite places.

Mahalo-hope to be back next year

  • 5 of 5

Have been renting units in Maui for the past 15 years and this is the only unit I will stay in. Just returned for the 3rd year and looking forward to coming again next year. The owners are very easy to work with and the personal attention they provide make your stay perfect! This unit is "over-the- top" in comfort and décor. You will want for nothing. The best part--the lanai. Hard to leave as the lanai swivel rockers are so comfortable and the view amazing. Please, don't ever change them. Just sitting and enjoying all the boats cruise in and out of the harbor. So interesting, fun and always something different to watch, like I said, "The best part". The little private beach in front was perfect, didn't have to drive, just walk out the door.

Loved sleeping to the soft sounds of the palm trees and waves. Very relaxing and quiet. Looking forward to my next stay.

A Wonderful Condo in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

I have been visiting Hawaii since 1981 and stayed in many condos. This was by far one of the nicest and best equipped units I have stayed in. It is very well maintained, clean, decorated and everything worked. The kitchen had every possible cooking utensil that would be needed and an abundance of dishes, cutlery, and pots and pans. The owner also provided coolers, beach chairs and umbrellas which was appreciated. The Lanai has magnificent views and the furniture very comfortable. The building and grounds are very well maintained and clean as well.

The location is very central to all of Maui and made sightseeing in any direction quite easy. The building is on a dead-end road with little traffic unlike some of the more popular tourist areas. Susan, the owner, was very pleasant to work with and responded quickly to any communications. I look forward to returning for another visit.

Outstanding!! The condo was as comfortable as our home!

  • 5 of 5

We cannot express how the condo's location is just a perfect location on the island of Maui!

The marina and the bay just outside the condo is a very interesting place.

The action was fun to watch. From the boats to the manta rays!

Overall the area is free of the hustle and crowds you find in the tourist areas of the island.Yet, your a half an hour away if you want to enjoy those areas!

Just a Great Place!! We will be back!!

The condo exceeded any expectation we had before traveling. The location is central to the rest of Maui and easy to get to from any direction. This condo provides far more than most condos and you can really tell the owners are invested in it for their own comfort, which translates into our comfort. The air conditioners were great since the temperatures were higher than usual. We love to cook at home and the kitchen is fully equipped with anything you will need and as a bonus has fabulous appliances. The bedrooms are spacious and open to allow for air flow. The views are amazing and can be viewed by almost every location in the condo - not just from the spacious and beautiful lanai.

The condo community is quiet and those living there full time are friendly. Getting in and out is easy and parking is in front. We made a great choice and recommend it to everyone! Thank you for opening up your second home.

This condo was a wonderful choice for our family! Susan was very easy to work with and we loved and appreciated the friendliness and great Maui tips from Digger, the resident manager and Tony. The view was absolutely beautiful and like many of the other reviewers we spent our mornings and many evenings on the lanai. Highlight was seeing 4 male whales chasing a female right from the lanai. What a treat! Turtles almost every morning also. Long beautiful beach just a short walk away for swimming and morning walks. Great central location, nice decor and the kitchen is stocked with everything you need (except food of course!). Master bedroom extremely comfortable and loved sleeping with the windows open listening to the ocean and plam trees. We also appreciated the beach chairs, umbrella, coolers and boogie boards. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home!

Owner's Response: We are so pleased your stay was perfect and comfortable in our penthouse. I hope you found the binoculars provided to get an up-close view of the whales and turtles. Don't really need them as the sea life is front and center. It is true, no one wants to leave the lanai. Its always interesting and fun. We look forward to your return. Aloha

Lovely Condo, but..................

  • 2 of 5

I am writing this review to fairly enlighten tourists, and because if I had read the following realistic comments before booking, I would not have booked this location. While the condo itself is as all the previous posts state, beautiful, lovely lanai, well stocked kitchen, comfortable beds, lots of room. The pictures capture the condo exactly as it is. However, after spending one night we realized how much noise there was from the tour boats in the harbor, not only getting their boats ready for the day at approx 6:00 a.m., using speakers to announce their departure, passengers boarding steps away from the lanai, but dinner cruises coming back into the harbour at night, again very noisy. Garbage trucks, again very early in the morning, and the coast guard station. Not to mention the cars driving into and out of the parking lot next door to this building, driving over a manhole that you hear constantly.

And, beware of extra charges by the owners. I was charged extra for:

Dirty stove interior-extra cleaning time, (so essentially do not use the oven), even though there was parchment paper in the bottom so I don't think the extra cleaning time was fair.

2. Extra laundry- check out

instructions to leave minimal laundry for cleaners. Multiple sheets set which needed soaking from

staining. (I'm not sure why this comment was posted by the owners, we were there for 2 weeks and did wash the sheets while we were there, who wants to sleep in sheets more than a week at a time?). I did strip the sheets that were on the beds for the last week of our stay as was instructed.

3. Screen replacement (that was an "Act of God"). it was very windy a number of days while we were there and I don't think it was our fault the wind blew out the kitchen screen. We did advise the owner that that happened, and would not have minded paying for the screen if we had not incurred all of the other "extra charges" that I feel are unfair.

4. Removal of rocks on lanai - I do admit to leaving the rocks on the lanai - I did yoga on the lanai daily and had to secure my yoga mat with the rocks because of the wind.

5. Extra cleaning of entry and lanai of sand - I am a "neat freak" and would not have left any extra cleaning. I did sweep the floor a number of times.

6. Wire transfer bank fees - the owners proudly state"Free to book with no hidden costs". Not so.

I am not trying to be malicious with these comments, I just want to warn travellers.

Kindly submitted.

Owner's Response: This is definitely a maliciously post for retaining part of the security deposit, clearly evident by the length and two stars. I was shocked as we spoke right before her departure. During that conversation she had high praise for the unit, saying it exceeded her expectations, and even referred a friend who booked the unit. Listed are some, but not all of the extensive damage done. My cleaners spent extra hours washing stained sheets and cleaning (especially the beautiful Viking stove) which I was billed for. She even admits sweeping up constantly after herself and I can guarantee you that God did not slash the window screen. Prior to arrival, this reservation was in the process of being canceled due to nonpayment, which resulted in the last minute wire transfer fees. Normal payments are made with either credit card or check. This is only the 2nd partial deposit retained in 15 years of renting. I am blessed with wonderful guests. Should there be anything needed during your stay, my on site manager is at your disposal. My goal is to have everything perfect and clean accommodations for your stay. This is a spectacular unit with amenities equal to high end luxury homes. That’s why so many of my guests return or roll their deposit over for their next stay.
