Overview

Maui Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms with King-Sized beds, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

If you like the sun and the beach this is the place for you!!! It's the perfect home away from home with everything you need! It has king-sized beds in both bedrooms, HDTVs everywhere, and a fully stocked kitchen with everything youi need including toaster/blender/etc, paper products, spices, and more. The inside is peaceful and perfect, but the outside is unbelievable. The pictures were all taken by us and hopefully they do the place justice. Those taken from above (e.g. views of the pool) were really taken from our Lanai and those on the beach were really taken from right in front of the condo!

We just installed high-speed (100mbps) internet and encrypted wifi. We can usually get our wifi signal at the pool so you can sit around the pool and work or play if you want to.

We have lots of play toys for your use including beach chairs & towels, boogie boards, sand toys, a cooler, even some snorkeling gear.

The Kanai A Nalu condo complex means 'gentle surf' in Hawaii. Enjoy the gentle surf just steps from the condo!!!

About Barb and Larry

We've been happily married since 1984 (over 30 years) and have two wonderful daughters and a super grandson and granddaughter. We both recently retired and wanted a place in the sun. Larry was an engineering manager and Barb was a rental property manager. Together we love vacations, love the sun/beach, and understand how to manage properties. This seemed like a perfect fit to buy a place on Maui and rent it out to old & new friends.

Barb and Larry purchased this condo in 2013

Why Barb and Larry chose Maui

We visited Maui when our kids were younger and loved the area. After visiting a newly transplanted friend there in the fall of 2012 we decided to see if we could find a place of our own. Luck was on our side and we were able to find this beautiful condo in 2013. We spent five very long weeks remodeling the unit to update it and then because the unit was empty when we purchased it we got to completely furnish it from the beds & couches down to the plates and silverware. Everything was bought new.

What makes this condo unique

We actually bought this condo sight-unseen because we knew the area. Location, location, location, right? The condo sits right on the most beautiful and longest beach on Maui. What makes our condo unique is that it's literately at the beginning of a 4.5 mile sandy beach and most of the beach is on a nature preserve so there are only two other condos on the beach. This provides unbelievable seclusion yet is close to everything on Maui!

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was the perfect setup for us. We stayed with our close friends and having a king bed in the second bedroom was perfect since we didn’t have to fight over bedrooms. The kitchen was perfect too with everything we ever needed. The weather was perfect and we sat on the deck in the evenings playing cards, listening to the waves, and having MaiTais.

Very Good!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Larry and Barb's very nice condo. It was perfectly located right on the beach with a pool and close to many locations on Maui. Very spacious and reasonably priced. Larry/Barb were very hospitable and accommodating with providing most everything we needed for our wonderful family vacation, including going out and personally purchasing a Pac and Play for my granddaughter to sleep in which was so appreciated. Thank you! Our vacation was wonderful and we will be sure to pass information onto friends and family. We would definitely look to stay again when we travel to Maui in the future.

Very comfortable, with all the amenities of home, fantastic central location, overall positive.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our time at your condo immensely. It was central in location making it easy to visit other parts of Maui. Plus since it was not close to a shopping strip and restaurants our adult kids stayed close to home making it a real family trip. I might add the harbour nearby had enough venues to make us satisfied. Loved the beach and pool, falling asleep to the sound of the ocean was divine. All other tenants were friendly and helpful. You provided so many extras in the condo that we were not expecting. All in all it was an enjoyable time, we would come again.

Great location, good condo.

  • 4 of 5

Our stay was great. The condo's location is excellent, making it easy to get anywhere on Maui. It can get windy at times (the harbour is the 2nd windiest in the world), so if you dislike this, this may not be the place for you. However if you want budget accommodations in a beautiful location this is the place for you.

The condo amenities were ok, we ended up purchasing a few items that were missing (need a kettle to make tea) but this was a non-issue. Bedding could use an update, and there were a few items missing in the kitchen that we could have used but we managed without. Also, there was no secure wifi which was disappointing, the wifi in the building was painfully slow.

Beach chairs and toys were great, though all the boogie boards were broken.

Depending on the surf there is a little beach out front or you can walk a bit down the beach to Haycroft Park which is also nice. There are many green sea turtles in the area which were fun to watch.

The condo looks just as it does in the pictures. Overall our family had a great stay and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

Owner's Response: Since this stay we've begun providing our own internet/wifi rather than using the connection provided by the Condo Association. Our internet is now 100mbps so it's fairly fast. We also have encrypted wifi. The wifi signal is often strong enough to reach all the way to the pool if desired. We've had many comments that mention how well stocked the kitchen and condo in general is so we're surprised to hear you didn't feel that way. We've always reimbursed guests for anything they've bought (with prior discussion of course) so it's a shame we couldn't have worked this out while you were there so you could have a nice relaxed stay.

Nice View

  • 5 of 5

Please disregard the review that I just wrote because I was mistaken that I thought I was writing a review of the property in Honolulu which I also rented from VRBO. This property in Maui is great. Great view, and very clean. Well stocked with anything that you might need, either housekeeping supplies or baking needs. We enjoyed our stay very much. It is quiet too. Will certainly come back again if I come back to Maui. Highly recommended.

Nice condo with excellent location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 6 nights during thanksgiving. The condo was well stocked and had a good view of the beach from the lanai. The location was great, not too crowded. We would not hesitate to stay here again the next time we visit Maui. Mahalo!!

A wonderful week on Maui

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time on Maui, the location was great for exploring the island. The condo was good for two couples.The grounds and the pool were well maintained by the gardeners. The view from the lanai was perfect for viewing the sunrise. We cooked a few meals and it was nice to have gas grills available by the pool. The kitchen is a little dated but more than adequate. We were never able to connect to the encrypted wifi so we had to make do with the building wifi which was painfully slow. I'm pretty tech savvy but i was never able to find the network that was alluded to in the binder. I even plugged and unplugged the so called booster. We did not use the AC so we had the windows open at night. You get a fair amount of ocean sounds which is nice, but also a fair amount of airplane noise approaching the airport. I'd recommend earplugs for light sleepers. The beach in front of the condo is not as generous as shown in the picture but a short walk brings you to nice wide beaches. The condo is a good value for the money and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

We also have encrypted wifi. The wifi signal is often strong enough to reach all the way to the pool if desired. All the pictures of our condo/grounds were taken by us so they are completely accurate. Depending on time of year and tides the size of the beach can shrink/grow, but as the reviewer mentioned there is plenty of beach available. We are literally at the start of a 4.5 mile sandy beach so no one will run out of sand...
