We consider our Condo in Maalaea as our 'Hale' in Paradise. It sits directly in front of the blue Ocean with a small private beach and tide pools to explore.
From the Lanai you can watch the Whales put on an incredible show during the months of December through April. Maalaea Bay is a Sanctuary to the Humpback Whales.
The Sunrises coming up over Haleakala are spectacular, every morning it is a different array of dramatic colors. You have no obstructions to block the incredible view of the Ocean and the long stretch of Sugar Beach.
One of the best aspects is that it is centrally located to all that Maui has to offer.
The bedroom is nicely appointed with an appealing tropical flair with a large closet. There is a louvered glass window which allows a nice breeze that aids in a restful sleep.
The kitchen is equipped with everything you should need to make your stay feel like home. It has been recently updated with a new Stove, Microwave and Dishwasher, Granite Counter tops and new Cabinets. The refrigerator also has an ice maker. The upgraded washer is located in the kitchen and the dryer next to the refrigerator with a granite counter top for folding clothes.
The bathroom has also been updated with a tiled walk-in shower with a glass block wall, Granite Counter tops.
There is a Flat Screen TV, DVD, free WiFi, CD Player, Telephone and Broadband Access. We have attached a HDMI cable to the TV so you can hookup your laptop or other device enabling the ability to stream Movies, TV shows and view Photos taken of your Maui adventures. Both TVs are hooked up to Roku Devices for streaming movies and TV shows.
The beach towels and chairs, beach tote and cooler along with bed linens, bath towels, kitchen towels, hot mits, laundry detergent, fabric softener, misc cleaning supplies and light bulbs are all located in the cabinets in the hallway.
The cane couch has a dark floral print with end tables that have small ottomans tucked underneath you can pull out after a long day of sightseeing or a strenuous adventure. Along with the matching cane furniture the wall decorations and prints completes the tropical feeling of the Islands. There are new tile floors through out the Condo.
There is a fenced in Pool and Hot Tub along side an Outdoor Grill. Lots of lounge chairs are located on the lawn. There are also tables and chairs for dining and relaxing with a beverage. A outdoor shower is there to rinse off before entering the pool and to rinse off the sand for those who choose to hang out on the beach located right out in front of the Condo.
The Lobby too has the feel of the Islands . There is a parking lot directly out front of the Lobby with large fragrant Plumeria Trees. No Parking Fees.
Our first visit to Maui together to look at Maalaea Banyans, was my husband’s first visit to this wonderful Island. I lived and worked on Maui many years ago and fell in love with the diversity and beauty.
I was raised in Kailua, Oahu and have always carried the spirit of Aloha with me where ever I go. The Island life is like no other. We visit Oahu every other year for Christmas to visit friends and family.
We now have a Condo in Ruston, with a beautiful view of Commencement Bay. Before this we lived on the Ocean in a small Ocean Front Community called Seaview Estates for 8 years. Both locations are located in the State of Washington.
Jim and Cheryl Olson purchased this condo in 2013
We decided that we wanted to spend more time on the Islands, although Kailua will always be in our hearts, I prefer the quiet, laid back feel of Maalaea that reminds us of Kailua of old.
As soon as we walked through the door I knew I was home. It had a feeling of familiarity and Aloha. The view of the Ocean as we walked down the hallway was striking. We are use to Island sunrises in Kailua but the sunrise over Haleakala is incredible, lighting up the sky with a multitude of colors. Simply breathtaking. We like the location with just a two minute walk to Sugar Beach for our morning stroll and in the other direction just a short walk to shops, restaurants and the Maui Ocean Center. Love all the different plants and trees that surround the Condo and the fact that they are very well maintained, so beautiful. The Condo is located on a dead end street so it is very quiet and relaxing. The surrounding area is secluded with very little traffic of either vehicle or people. Very unlike the busy large Vacation Resorts and their surrounding areas, but it is just a 20 minute drive if you want to experience and enjoy the hustle and bustle. All along knowing you are going to return to peace and quiet.
We had an epic month in Maalaea, Maui, staying here in February. I can't say enough about our enjoyment of this unit, and the caring and ready availability of the owners, Cheryl & Jim.
It was clean, quiet, and ideally situated for fun activities and conveniences. The decor was island comfortable, and the scene from the lanai was unsurpassed. The condo had all comfort and conveniences, including washer/dryer, which was so helpful for our longer stay.Plenty of hooks for "stuff", all beach items, including binoculars for sighting whales, right there for use.
The kitchen was very well stocked with everything anyone could want/need, as well as on site grills. We cooked many delicious meals there, dining on the lovely lanai morning and night.
The wi fi was great More to add (computer jumping around...)
Wi fi great, very relaxing for everything. My husband enjoyed the cable access for all the college b'ball on the mainland.
the pool is nice and "right sized" as is the hot tub. We so enjoyed sighting the whales, and the honu on the beach, as well as the regular Honu who arrived on the beach regularly every day. We loved seeing him!
It was wonderful to be able to walk to town to the local restaurants and whale watching, and walk the beach every day. The beach by the park (Haycraft) was lovely and almost at times felt like our very own; not too many people; just enough to say "hi" and "good morning".
All in all, one of the best of many trips we have been on. We have been to Maalaea before, but this was the best! We wouldn't want to stay anywhere else, now!
My husband and I stayed here 10 days in March. Loved watching the whales and sea turtles right from the lanai every day! Beautiful sunrises over Haleakala! Location is perfect for exploring the island. 30 min to Lahaina, 15 min to Kihei and 30 min to the airport. Clean, safe and comfortable condo. Wouldn't hesitate to come back here for all future visits. Jim and Cheryl have a Maui gem! Questions about the hale? Cheryl was right there to help. Suggestions of things to do and where to go? They've supplied that too! Cheryl can always be reached and is even excited to help out! We loved our stay! Thank you Jim and Cheryl for an unforgettable trip! We can't wait to come back!
Tip: if you're looking for a different kind of luau experience, try Feast at Lele! Food was amazing and the show was even better! Not your typical buffet style and they even have a fire dance at the end!
Everything about this place was wonderful! The view is amazing! Sea turtles were playing all day long directly in front of us. The place is very clean, updated, and has everything you could possibly need. As most of the other reviews state, you don't need the air conditioner. The breeze is enough to keep you comfortable. This was the best place I have ever booked on VRBO. It is also central to everything. Not far from any of the other beaches and sights on the island. Thank you Cheryl for the most memorable experience ever!
My husband and I had the opportunity to find a special place in Maui. This is a place where the owners were responsive, happy, worked in a timely manner, and friendly and helpful. The last thing you need when traveling all the way from the mainland are issues...and there were none. The pictures shown are exactly what you are going to see. When being on the third floor, which is nice, you are close to elevator and in the middle of the condo. Your view....well I will say turtles, surf, waves, sun, and a beautiful small beach to enjoy. I am going to say fabulous!! The sunrise every morning.....the sun...the lovely wind....the warmth..The remodel is wonderful with the amazing turtle in the floor and the bathroom is amazing. The bedroom is in the back so be aware to open windows for trade wind to flow through the condo.Everything you need is there! The washer and dryer is awesome to have in order to keep our clothes clean. You might find yourself resting on the couch or in the back...either one is comfy. Thank you again for the amazing stay. It was are vacation, our time away, our wedding vows, and visiting the amazing island of Maui. Thank you for Alaska!!! :) John and Hanna
We had A beautiful two week stay. The new kitchen with lots of storage and counter space was a delight to work in. We cooked in and ate on the lanai enjoying the ocean view a lot
This is the second time we have stayed here; third time in Maalaea. I would not want to stay anywhere else on Maui, for us its the best. The location is perfect, quiet, cozy, and clean. It is convenient to most all sights and fun adventures, or great for just staying there and "chilling". The unit, while very nice before, has also been beautifully updated. Everything one could want or need is already there; other than groceries and personal toiletries. Cooking is a breeze, and the on site grills are very handy as well, and a fun place to socialize.
The on site manager is very helpful, if needed, and friendly.
Its so much fun to walk to Haycraft Beach, Sugar Beach, and to the village. The owners have provided nice beach chairs, umbrella, and snorkel gear.
We hope to have the great pleasure of visiting again; we had a thoroughly delightful time for 6 weeks. It truly felt like "Hale" to us!
I just returned from five nights in Maui in our home away from home, the wonderful condo of Jim and Cheryl Olson at Maui Banyans. As soon as my friend and I walked in the door, we immediately noticed the lovely décor of the condo, as well as how clean and organized it was. Watching the sunset and sunrise from the lanei and the living room was a big treat, and hearing the ocean waves at night was just wonderful. Jim and Cheryl have thought of everything to make your stay comfortable, and provide many items, such as toiletries, etc. so you don't have to worry about packing too much. The appliances are all new, the bathroom and shower are great, and I particularly loved all the prints and photos in the condo, making you feel very much at home. People at the Banyans are so friendly, and the grounds are lovely with a wonderful pool and hot tub. Jim and Cheryl also provide a book of places to visit and good restaurants in the area, which was helpful in planning our day.
If you want a relaxed, beautiful place to stay in Maui, consider renting this spot!! And the small harbor town of Maalaea where the condo is located is in a perfect location for touring both sides of Maui!! You could not receive better customer care from anyone else!!
For the soul soothing beach strolls, you just have a 2 minute walk down Hauoli St., our quiet dead end street and you are at Sugar Beach. You could walk all the way to Kihei on this beautiful, long, unspoiled stretch of beach. On one side you have the ocean and on the other side is the Kealia Wildlife Refuge and Pond.
The Maalaea Harbor is where you can find both Award Winning Restaurants and low keyed cafes, there are shops, boating activities of all kinds, the General Store and Deli and the famous Maui Ocean Center and Aquarium. Best of all it is a short walk there from the Condo.
The drive to and from the Kahului Airport is only about 12 minutes.
The Maalaea area has the feeling of Aloha, far from the busy and crowded areas but centrally located so you can visit those areas, just a 20 minute drive North to Lahaina/Kaanapali and a 20 minute drive South to Makena/Wailea.
After a busy day of sightseeing and Island adventures you will return to your quiet and peaceful home away from home. Then when you have a good nights sleep with the help of the breeze and the sound of the ocean flowing through the Condo you will wake up to the beauty of the sunrise above Haleakala.
