Our condo is DIRECT OCEANFRONT, BEACHFRONT! You can't get any closer to the ocean than our condo! Maalaea village is a gem with its central location and its fantastic trade winds. They provide a cooling breeze that keeps the temperatures just right, we also have a timer controlled A/C just in case the cross breeze in the unit isn't enough for you. There are ceiling fans in every room also
From the lanai, gaze out and watch the sun rise over Haleakala (House of the Sun), the long dormant 10,000 foot volcano. Watch green sea turtles bobbing up for air and rolling in the surf, even sunning themselves on the beach. In the winter months (Nov-April) you will have a front row seat to breaching whales as they come back to the islands to give birth and nurse their young in the warm Hawaiian waters. In the summer months during a good south swell, you can watch surfers on the legendary surf break “Freight Trains”, the world’s fastest surfable wave.
We welcome families and children we provide a pack and play, high chair and beach toys upon request to make your trip over easier and lighter! We can also provide a queen size air mattress or a twin army cot if you need any extra sleeping arrangements. Just ask.
Beautifully landscaped grounds with a heated pool will make any stress you have brought with you melt away. Slip into to the pool and enjoy the ocean view while you relax in the Maui sun.
Our condo has beautifully plastered walls, used for its natural insulation as well its beautiful look, keeps the cool air in and the hot air out. During our remodel we added some great features.....
The kitchen has stainless steel appliances, Sub-Zero refrigerator and is fully equipped with cooking utensils, pots, pans, blender and all of the other basic supplies to comfortably enjoy cooking and eating in. There is also a great BBQ area oceanfront so you can enjoy the view while you cook up some delicious food!
Our Master Suite is styled to resemble a luxury hotel. We use 100% white cotton 550 thread count sheets, king size pillow top mattress king size down pillows (hyper allergenic upon request). You will be climbing into heaven after a day of exploring our stunning island.
Our bathrooms are beautifully tiled with a clean updated and stylish look. 100% cotton white bath towels and hand towels are of course provided.
Enjoy a meal on the private lanai or just sit out and enjoy the view with some Maui grown coffee.
At the end of our cul-de-sac is Sugar Beach, 3-4 minute walk from the unit, the longest stretch of sandy beach on Maui. 5 miles of secluded sand to walk, run and beachcomb. You won’t find any crowds here because access to the beach is protected from the road by the bird-filled-ponds of Kealia Wildlife Refuge. It is so amazing to walk this beach and literally feel like you have it all to yourself!
A 5 minute walk in the opposite direction takes you to Maalaea Harbor where you will find a small grocery store, deli, craft market, restaurants and the Maui Ocean Center (Maui’s #1 tourist attraction), the Pacific Whale Foundation, miniature golf, shopping and most of the ocean activities available on Maui (sunset dinner cruises, deep sea fishing, snorkeling tours & whale watching).
Centrally located Maalaea, makes getting anywhere on the island easy. 15 minutes from the airport, a 5 minute drive south and you are in the long village of Kihei and a bit further, the resorts of Wailea. Twenty minutes to the west is the old whaling village of Lahaina, with it’s magnificent Banyan Tree and shopping galleries. You couldn’t be in a better location to explore all Maui has to offer.
Other perks include:
~Beach umbrella (on request)
~50 DVD movie titles to choose from.
~Washer and Dryer inside the unit
~50" Flatscreen tv
~Blue Ray Player
~2 Kayaks to launch off of the back yard
Plan on packing personal toiletry items. Since we supply the initial supply of paper towels, toilet paper, and other dispensable items to get you started on your vacation, you should plan a trip to the grocery store to replenish these items, as you need them.
Ma’alaea Banyans is an oceanfront complex located in the Ma’alaea Harbor with breathtaking views of Lana’i, just 20 steps away from the waters edge. The property has a heated pool, jacuzzi and BBQ area that overlooks the ocean. Brand new remodel furnished with island chic home décor.
You can watch the whales play from your living room or on your lanai while enjoying the beautiful view of dormant Haleakala volcano.
This condo is located on the center of the west shore and is no more than 30 minutes from just about anywhere you want to go north, south, or east (except Hana or the top of Haleakala, of course). Better for adults since there is no real beach access off the property - we like the quiet. Walk to Ma'alaea harbor (boat excursions) and the general store. Reliable internet. Ground floor location makes everything easy. Trade winds blow through and cool condo nicely - didn't need to run A/C a single time.
One issue - the clothes washer/dryer does not dry clothes completely - they come out still somewhat damp. We just hang them up and then head for our snorkeling spot. This is a small minus compared to the many pluses of this location.
Overall a very nice condo. Clean, very quite and nice grounds.
The listing description was accurate. Good location. A beautiful beach a short walk away.
I would recommend this property . I only have one comment ... the refrigerator runs constantly. I think it might need to be repaired.

Overall my husband and I enjoyed our stay at the Banyans. The view from our condo couldn't be beat and the regular condominium tenants we interacted with were very pleasant and friendly. The location was fantastic at only 15 minutes from the airport and around 20 minutes from Lahaina and Kihei for shopping and dining! The local Beach Bums restaurant in Maalaea was tasty and convenient too. The small, rocky beach front was nice for beachcombing and we saw some sea turtles at the nearby sandy beach. We also really enjoyed the use of the pool and hot tub and took advantage of them regularly. The biggest bummer there was that the pool and hot tub were not lit up with fun, colored lights as pictured.
The condo itself was a bit more worn in than we had expected- a little Mr. Clean eraser could go a long way with all the scuff marks on the walls! The dryer never quite dried our clothing no matter what setting we tried and we ended up hang drying most everything. A second set of beach towels would have been helpful during our stay. And, a Swiffer Wet Jet mop would have been nice to clean up the floors during our stay- a broom can only do so much.
To those looking to stay in a condo in Maui I would recommend it. We loved the location and really enjoyed the use of the pool and hot tub. My biggest recommendation to prospective guests would be in regards to the checkout. If you, like us, have an evening flight out of Maui then the 11am checkout leaves you with several hours to kill before your flight and nowhere to store your luggage but your car. The condo does not offer luggage storage and, as such, I would recommend paying for a late checkout time if you have the extra cash for it. We did not and ended up leaving our bags in the car while spending the afternoon at the nearby Maui Brewing Company.
What an amazing week we had in this lovely condo. We woke up each morning to beautiful Hawaiian sun and humpback whales playing in the ocean right outside our door. The condo had everything we needed and more. We absolutely loved the pillow top mattress in the bedroom and the decor throughout gave it a beachy feel. We are so in love with this place we have already started talking about our next trip to Ma'alaea.
We stayed in January for one week to celebrate my husband's 50th birthday. The condo is very nicely decorated, comfortable and very close to the water. We found the area to be very convenient and close to many things. My only problem with the place was that the toilet ran the entire time of our visit. I notified the manager within 24 hours of our arrival and was told that it would be fixed that day. No one ever came, to my knowledge to fix, so we had to listen to the toilet for the entirety of the visit. Yes, I could've contacted her again, but this was my vacation, the last thing I wanted to do was hound someone to get this done. The appliances are very nice, but a little complicated to use. I never quite figured out how to use the washer and dryer, even after looking up the owner's manual online, if the manuals are in the condo we couldn't find them. The place could have used a bath mat, it was a constant battle keeping the floor dry after showers, and either a vacuum (I found attachments, no vacuum) or a dust pan so that we could sweep up sand easily (which unfortunately comes home with you when you spend a day at the beach).
Ok gripes over, it's a beautiful condo. The bed was heavenly and like I said very comfortable overall. I would stay again.
Ma'alaea Banyans is located on the longest stretch of white beach in Maui and directly behind a turtle refuge.
