Overview

Maui Condo Rental Photos and Description

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

Summer and Fall 2016 is on SALE, so please check our calendar for your dates!!!

We have loved our condo at Kana‘i A Nalu, since our Dad purchased it in 1986!

Kana‘i A Nalu means 'gentle surf, but we call it 'Dad's Paradise.' Kana‘i A Nalu is a beautiful OCEANFRONT complex located ON the four-mile stretch of Sugar Beach on Ma‘alaea Bay. Our condo is located on the second floor with gorgeous views from the lanai of the tropical gardens, the pool, the ocean, and the sunrise over Haleakala, the 'House of the Sun,' Maui’s largest dormant volcano. During the winter months, when the humpback whales are in the bay, the lanai may become your full-time residence.

The central tropical garden area has a solar-heated pool, large grassy area, and two Weber grills for all to enjoy! In the late afternoon, the barbeque area is the place to be!

Kana‘i A Nalu appeals to those who don't want to have to walk through a congested lobby or across a busy street to get to the pool or beach. Our guests can easily go from our condo to the beach and back in a couple of minutes.

Our condo is fully equipped with kitchenware, linens, a dishwasher and a washer/dryer. We also have a nice collection of beach towels, snorkeling gear, sand toys and boogie boards for you to use on the beach.

The master bedroom has a queen-size bed with a connecting bathroom, while the second bedroom has twin beds and a full bathroom in the adjacent hall.

We have made some lovely improvements to the condo in recent years, with tile floors in the main living areas and kitchen, granite countertops in the kitchen and both bathrooms, and with HD TVs in the living/dining area and the master bedroom. We love the relaxed tropical style on island, and that style is reflected in our condo.

When the weather is blistering hot on other parts of the island, Ma‘alaea Bay’s consistent breezes keep the air comfortable at our complex. Inside the condo, each room has a ceiling fan to provide comfort, including the bathrooms.

Directly across the bay is the town of Kihei; towering above it is Haleakala, elev. 10,023. Sunrises over its summit can be seen from the lanai, and they are stunning!

Our condo is centrally located on the island and is between Wailea and Lahaina. It is approximately 9 miles from the Kahului Airport.

Each unit in the complex is unique, and you really can't go wrong anywhere on the property! You won't hear any comparisons or slights about the other units on this page, because we love Kana'i A Nalu!

Happy Searching!!!!

***If you are a returning guest to our condo, be sure to ask about our discount.

About Terri (For owner Bob)

This is the fifth year that my brother and I have helped Dad to manage his condo on Maui. Our dad is a retired veterinarian, and at one time in our lives we had 3 cats, 2 dogs, 4 tortoises, and a beehive in the backyard. We now have families of our own, which, of course, include our beloved pets!

Our families live in Sacramento, Davis and Grass Valley, California.

Terri (For owner Bob) purchased this condo in 1987

Why Terri (For owner Bob) chose Maui

One of the reasons that dad was drawn to Kana‘i a Nalu and the Ma‘alaea Village area was that it was on a dead-end street. He loved the quiet slow-paced atmosphere of the area, yet he also loved that he could walk to the harbor, to dinner or to the aquarium. The condo backs up to undeveloped sugar cane fields and faces the ocean, giving it a secluded feeling while still being close to Ma‘alaea Village amenities.

When the weather is blistering hot in Lahaina and Ka‘anapali, Ma‘alaea Bay’s consistent breezes keep the air comfortable.

Also, if you want to explore the island, Kana‘i a Nalu's central location on the isthmus makes visiting other parts of Maui ideal.

What makes this condo unique

One of our favorite things to do while at Kana‘i a Nalu is to use the grill in the garden area. The welcoming atmosphere has allowed us to meet guests from all over the country and abroad too (there are often visitors from Alaska and Canada in the winter months). Another unique feature about Kana‘i a Nalu is the undeveloped four-mile stretch of Sugar Beach, which passes only sand dunes and a nature preserve before the resorts at Kihei. It makes for a relaxing sunrise walk. Additionally, our fully equipped kitchen gives you the option to cook some of your meals at home, letting you save money for other island attractions. Maui has a Costco and numerous other grocery stores within a 15-minute drive.

A lovely family spot

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying as a family in this condo. The owner was extremely accommodating and friendly, shared good places to eat and go, etc. She let us check out later as we had a late flight, and that meant one last swim with the turtles at the adjacent beach. (Thank you Teri!) Best of all, there was everything we might want available to use, from a cooler for our picnic lunches, to toiletries, beach equipment, board games, etc. And the condo itself was pleasant, had a nice personal touch and feeling to it and was pretty and comfortable. Our son stayed at a nearby condo that was fine, but antiseptic, so we all gathered in our place. The complex itself is also very nice with a pleasant area to barbecue and sit out. It is ideally situated to explore the island. If we are lucky enough to go back to Maui, we'd want to stay right here again.

Lovely condo, excellent location, a dream vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our vacation in this condo! It's outfitted with everything you need and we made good use of the cooler, beach chairs, and beach towels. The location is perfect, right on the edge of Sugar Beach which allowed for magical long walks along the beach. There was nothing better than enjoying morning coffee on the lanai, watching the whales breach or blow. Terri is extremely organized and wonderful to deal with. Everything went smoothly and we're already looking forward to our next trip!

Very nice.

  • 5 of 5

The condominimum was very nice and well maintained. The condominum association grounds and facilites are beautifully maintained. The owner had detailed instructions on everything, was very responsive and was very accommodating on allowing us to stay past the check out time because we had a late flight out. I plan on renting this unit again when we return to Maui. Yes, I would definitely recommend this unit to my family, friends and others looking for a place to stay that is quiet, in a great location and is reasonably priced.

Amazing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved this condo! We loved the not so busy atmosphere in the Maalaea harbor area! The condo was everything we dreamed it would be! It is very clean, the grounds are kept very neat, and it has everything you need. All the people working there are super friendly! The view from the lanai of the ocean and pool & courtyard are spectacular! (Good place to have your morning coffee!) Beautiful trees & flowers to enjoy! A very central location if you want to go to all the other areas on the island. My teenage kids enjoyed the use of the snorkel gear and the beach lawn chairs & coolers got well used. The binoculars came in handy too! And the "Maui Revealed" book that was at the condo was a wealth of information that we used quite regularly! Walking down to the harbor in the evening was nice to do as well! And having the beach right there in front of you was so spectacular! We can't wait to come back to this condo in future years!

totally relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Our friends and we had a PERFECT Maui vacation.

The condo was super clean, had a beautiful view and, to go to sleep hearing the ocean waves was unbelievably wonderful.

Go here if you'd like a similar experience.

Did I mention the PERFECT weather and the ideal location? We had the best time.

Best Vacation ever.

  • 5 of 5

This property is perfectly located, just a short drive to Lahaina, Kahului, or Kehei for all the shopping, sight seeing, or the beautiful beaches that litter the west side of the island. Although the 5 mile stretch of beach that begins right out in front of the condo complex was perfect for boogie boarding, snorkeling, etc., or just relaxing. Or take a short walk to the harbour where there are many shops and restaurants. The condo was clean and came with everything that we needed to make it our home away from home, with a gorgeous view overlooking the pool area and ocean. The complex is very quiet and laid back, and the way it is designed is perfect for sheltering the pool and common area from the trade winds, which we found to be rather soothing. The owners, property manager, maintenance people, and regular or permanent residents were all very friendly, and so helpful. We would highly recommend this property.
