About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom , 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2 Very Comfortably

ALOHA! Welcome to our home in Maui! Prior to sending us a request, please take a look at our calendar shown on this page and see if your desired dates are available - then either click on Request to Book or drop us an email with your telephone contact number (just in case I am away from my computer and need to call/text you with a reply). Our prices quoted are for two people - additional guests are $10.00 per night per person. If you are interested in booking a vacation to paradise - we would love to hear from you! Our newly renovated one bedroom fully furnished ground floor OCEANFRONT condominium - literally a stones throw to the water at the Maalaea Yacht Marina located in the most perfect central location on the Island of Maui. This is the IDEAL place for a couple to escape to paradise! This condo has the WOW factor from the moment that you walk through the entry door. We furnished the condo as our 'home away from home' and left nothing out for our special guests to wish for. The plantation shuttered 'all glass' front allows you easy access to your lanai where you will relax in comfort. The lanai is perfect for viewing excursion boats leaving the harbor, surfers riding the famous 'Freight Train' waves (best in the summer months) and last but not least during the winter months you will have fantastic views of the humpback WHALES without taking a charter to view them. Maalaea Bay is a whale sanctuary and you need not go no further than our private lanai to have exceptional viewings of the whales during 'whale season'.

Every piece of furniture was purchased with 'comfort' in mind from the Tommy Bahama style sleeper sofa and lounge chairs to the California King Serta Sleeper bed. The tiled bathroom is located 'en suite' in the master bedroom and not out in the hallway. This is the perfect bathroom location for a couple but may not be ideal for 4 adults. The designer kitchen is furnished with all stainless steel appliances, travertine counter tops and a rare Italian cherry wood center island from the Versace Store in Whalers Village. We have a Sony 46' and a Samsung 32' Flat Screen TV in the condo, DVD/CD Player, Free U.S. and Canada Telephone Calls, Wireless Internet (bring your own laptop), heated brand new salt water swimming pool and new stainless steel gas barbecues out by the pool.

We are just a 5 minute walk to Maui's famous 5 mile scenic Sugar Beach! We have a small sandy beach out front of our building that is perfect for small children or to just put your feet in the ocean. We are walking distance to Kealia Nature Preserve, several restaurants, miniature golf, many fishing, snorkeling and tour boats and the Maui Ocean Center. This quiet central location is Maui's 'best kept secret'. Maalaea Yacht Marina has 46 units and your parking spot is reserved for our unit, no aimless driving late at night hoping to find parking and NO extra charge for parking like the resorts charge. Why would you ever pay double the price for a garden view unit in another location on Maui when you can stay a 'stones throw' from the water in a luxury ground floor oceanfront unit at Maalaea Harbor? This quiet central location offers easy access to all of Maui's famous beaches, the road to Hana, Haleakala, Kihei, Lahaina, Kaanapali, Kahului and is only a 15 minute drive to the airport.

Take a peak at our calendar - we have special dates 'reserved' just for you! If you need more photos, just send us an email, we took many after the remodel, so we have plenty to share. If you are looking for an exceptionally nice oceanfront condo for your well deserved vacation to paradise, please contact us. 2016 Booked Full Very Quickly, so plan your 2017/2018 getaway early! Family or friends wanting to join you? We can help you obtain another brand new groundfloor or upper floor remodeled unit - just drop us an email. Come leave your footprints in the sand! Mahalo!

About Caroline Friesen

Allan is retired from 45 years in the field of Criminal Justice. I am still active here in Idaho as a personal property appraiser. We have 2 sons and 1 daughter and 8 grand children. We love all water activities especially boating in the San Juan Islands and fishing for steelhead in Idaho in the winter. We love Maui and are so very happy to call this our second home.

Caroline Friesen purchased this condo in 2011

Why Caroline Friesen chose Maui

Central location to all activities on Maui, boating, swimming, surfing, beaches, restaurants, shopping, very quiet condo building and just wonderful oceanfront property. The views from our property are great!

What makes this condo unique

So close to the water! Wonderful panoramic views from our oceanfront lanai - watch the tour boats, surfers, wind surfers, kayaks, whales, Molokini, Kihei and Haleakala. When we get tired of just 'watching', we grab our suits and head to the pool or ocean for a swim or our new favorite thing to do 'paddle boarding'.

Maui wowey!

  • 4 of 5

A beautiful location and comfortable condo to enjoy our vacation. An easy walk to the local beach and close to the highway for touring around the island. The unit we rented had all the amenities we needed for our stay including a great view of the ocean from the screened in lanai. Should we return to Maui again it will be the first place we contact for accommodations.

First time Maui visitors

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with our stay at Maalaea Yacht marina. The pictures shown are representative of what you will rent. The view from the lanai is amazing. The condo was well appointed with everything we required. Carolyn sent us an impressive amount of information regarding things to do on the island , thank you. Maalaea is removed from the busy resorts but is a perfect location to access anywhere you may want to visit. The building itself is very quiet. We had rented a vehicle for our entire stay and it was nice not having to pay for parking. We did not use the AC at all. The trade winds kept the unit remarkably cool. Sugar Beach is a short walk down the road, I'm sorry we didn't spend more time there.

Overall we really enjoyed our stay.

Perfect location for our Maui escape!

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the condo. The quiet, central location allowed us to get away from the crowds with only a short drive to most of our activities. The Morning coffee on the Lanai, with the view of the ocean, was the perfect way to start each day. We particularly appreciated the full kitchen facilities and the BBQ beside the pool. It was also very handy to have the use of the beach chairs and coolers for our day trips. We did find that having the pool right off the lanai could be a little noisy, and not very private, but this was mostly in the late afternoon when the pool had the most activity. Caroline provided an abundance of Maui information prior to our arrival was very accommodating to our special request on the last day of our stay. Thanks for having us.

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This unit is perfect! Exactly as described. Caroline and Allen are extremely gracious hosts. They even had a wonderful little welcome basket waiting for us! The unit is clean and very comfortable. Very close to the pool and ocean. There is also a small market in the building next door that turned out to be very convenient. Nice beach chairs to use, body boards, beach towels...nothing was left to chance, and you could tell that they wanted us to feel at home! Would most definitely rent this unit again. We loved the fact that it was a bit removed from all the touristy hubbub, but was no more than 20 minutes from anywhere you would want to be! The restaurants and shops within walking distance were also great!
