Wailuku Condo Rental Photos and Description

1 bed, 1 bath, oceanfront condo steps from the beach.

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 towels

~Beach chairs

~Beach umbrella (on request)


~Free parking

~Free WiFi

~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.

Sunshine & Whales

  • 5 of 5

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.

Great place to stay

  • 4 of 5

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.

Comfortable, convenient and quiet

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a wonderful two-week stay at this property in January 2016. Being on a residential street in Ma'alea, it is very quiet compared to the two-week stay we had on the oceanfront in Kehei. This site attracts a more mature crowd. The condo was comfortable - and COOL - due to the trade winds that you can have blow through the rooms. Convenience of in-condo washer/dryer. Cable entertainment system - including Netflix access - made for cozy evenings. First-floor access to the pool was great at all times, and there are plenty of lounge chairs for catching some sun (south-facing lawn). Property was clean and as-described. Owner was helpful and responsive to our needs. We plan to return.

Walking from the nearby park along the beach each evening was lovely. The sun rises over Haleakala and sets over West Maui mountains. Great view of Ma'alea Bay and WHALES breaching within 1/2 mile. Best of all was central location on Maui's west coast, between West and South beaches and (for us) snorkeling spots and golf courses - about 25 minutes to Lahaina, 25 to Wailea, and 45 to Kapalua. Local general store for essentials, several restaurants, and Maui Ocean Center are all within walking distance. Nearest full-service grocery store is Safeway in Kehei - about 15 minutes.

Great Condo for our first trip to Maui.

  • 4 of 5

It was my wife and I's first trip to Hawaii/Maui. We stayed here for 6 nights. The remodeled component was a big draw for us over a lot of the other options which are almost all very retro. It's nice to have that modern/stylish ambiance when on vacation so you actually enjoy the place you're staying at. The condo does look as it's pictured. As mentioned by someone else, it does have a tiny bit more wear from when the pictures were taken but still way nicer than a lot of alternatives. It was clean on our arrival. We also liked the location as it is central for runs to Target or Costco. Scuba at the harbor and Kihei are close. Also was a good spot for our trips to Hana, Haleakala Crater, Paia, and Lahaina. It is one of the windier locations on the island which we did notice when comparing to some of the other beaches we checked out. I really enjoyed the super soft bed. We had the fans on and left the bedroom door open at night and didn't have any issues keeping the bedroom cool enough (and we didn't have it on full blast). The beach at the condo isn't really usable but the larger Sugar beach is a super close walk. The hot tub by the pool wasn't fully heating up a few nights but someone mentioned they had done work on it so I think this was a one off / has been addressed. The sliding door is a bit tough to slide open and closed but not too bad. The door has a key pad access which is great so you don't have to worry about having your key or forgetting your key. We did see turtles right on the shore of the condo which was cool. I agree that luggage racks would be a big plus. Rental car is a must in my mind because the harbor area only has a few things but you'll want to check out some other stuff for sure. The main level is nice for easy access to the car and pool. The welcome book was great as it gives some suggestions of things to do and some additional info. The condo is stocked with everything you need (plates, pots, pans, cutlery, etc.), just don't go too heavy on the toilet paper because you only get a limited supply. Prior to going on the trip we did have some duration plans that changed and Kristine was very accommodating which was really appreciated!

Location, Location, Location!

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED this condo! It was clean, opened right up to an amazing view, and had all the amenities we needed. It was also centrally located on the island so no matter where we wanted to go, we didn't have a bad drive! Should we ever get back to Maui (and we sure hope to), we would love to come back to this condo!

The few issues we had were dealt with quickly- the sliding doors were very hard to open at times (they would come off the track)- maintenance came and took care of it. Also, Hawaii has had excessive heat this year- even into October- and the trade winds weren't blowing so we NEEDED AC- the AC unit is in the main room and didn't really reach the bedroom so after 2 near sleepless nights, I contacted Kristine and she sent over a fan that took care of the problem!

Very good

  • 4 of 5

Great little apartment for two people, nicely decorated with all natural materials and rustic feel. Centrally located for those with car in need of exploring whole island everything seems within the reach of hand. We were so pleased that Kristine accomodeted us longer due to our very late flight at little fee. We surely recommend this place for our friends and family :)
