Property type condo



About the property

2 bedroom, 2 bathroom + Bonus room, Oceanfront in Ma'alaea

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.

The kitchen has stainless steel appliances 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. We do not provide wash cloths

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

Fabulous. Quiet, out of the way stay. Yet a quick drive to lots of action. We

  • 4 of 5

Six of us stayed at the condo for 10 days and had a ball!

The oceanfront location w pool and hot tub overlooking Haliaukela was perfect. We used the grill outside for most our meals and met some interesting folk as a result.

The location is central but very low key...a little hidden piece of paradise.

But the real prize was the 2.5 mile beach right outside your door. Great snorkeling but best for early am walks!

We would definitely stay again should we return to the magical island of Maui

Good spot

  • 4 of 5

This place was quiet. Condo was very cute inside. We liked proximity to Kehei & activities we wanted to do. Ideal if you plan to do any day snorkelling trips as many start right from here. Beds were comfy. I'd go back

Nice view but don't believe the photos

  • 2 of 5

The view is as gorgeous as the pictures show but...the carpet in the living room was filthy. We considered rolling it up for the time that we were there. It is a whole different color and texture underneath the coffee table where my son found a previous guests toothbrush. We bought a blanket to cover the couch with as no one wanted to sit on it, it was that dirty.

Note that the upstairs bedroom is a loft which is open to the living room. The second bedroom has a slanted ceiling so one can only stand up in the first 1/3 of the room. I am only 5ft8 and whacked my head numerous times during our stay. No pictures are shown of the upstairs bathroom for a reason. It is small and old with mould growing in the shower corners.

I wish that I had better things to say but it was a disappointing stay.

We liked the location, 20 minutes to Lahaina, 20 minutes to Wailea.

The owner needs to look into how the place is bring maintained. From long black hair in the dryer to renovations which are more like a slap of uneven paint on an old place, it just felt unclean and not well kept.

Owner's Response: Wow! Thanks for opening my eyes to that bathroom, you are right it was in bad shape. We have scheduled for it to be redone in 2 weeks. You are also right about the cleaners. We have let them go and brought on a new team. We had been struggling with them for a while trying to make it work. We are sorry for the inconvenience. The walls are actually plaster and are supposed to look like that, there is beeswax on them to seal them. (sorry you dont like the look). Again we appreciate the review and thank you to opening our eyes to the problems.

Beautiful views!

  • 3 of 5

The condo served our needs adequately. Wish that t.p. garbage bags, etc. were provided? Seems odd to have to provide those. Also wish there had been a cooler available so our trips to other beaches were "chilled." Very disappointed in the tiny beach there with its rocks that made access difficult. Experienced many moray eels in those shallow waters......Ended up doing our beach time at other beaches that were more "user-friendly." Condo itself is attractive and kitchen is well-stocked and furniture attractive. Having the marina closeby is definitely a bonus and the restaurant there very good. Owner was responsive to all inquiries when making arrangements.

Condo was perfect for our family of 5 adults. Kitchen was well-appointed, and furnishings were very nice. Third bedroom upstairs is windowless, but portable air conditioner in the room made for comfortable sleeping. Pool, hot tub, and small beach are superb. Snorkeling boat is within walking distance, or you can snorkel right by the condo. We really enjoyed the sea turtles. I'd return here in a heartbeat.
