Maui Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

I live on Maui and I think West Maui is the best of Maui. Lahaina is close to Kapalua and Ka'anapali for golfers and there are many activity desks for convenient scheduling of ALL the fun on Maui. Yet, Lahaina still has the small town feel.

My condo is unique at Aina Nalu. It is located in a building that is separate from the rest of the resort. It is near the back of the property, away from most foot traffic, but close to the main pool.

The photographs do not fully illustrate the quality of furnishings and interior design at Aina Nalu. You will love it!

About John Wayland

Aloha from Betty and John,

We live on Maui in Wailuku. Betty is retired from the software industry and I am a 'semi-retired' dentist. We love playing golf, stand up paddle, hiking in the rain forest, and hanging out with friends.

John Wayland purchased this condo in 2005

Why John Wayland chose Maui

Lahaina Town is the most unique town in all of Hawaii. An old whaling village, Lahaina offers easy access to endless activities while maintaining it's polynesian roots.

What makes this condo unique

Aina Nalu is the best value on Maui. It is 2 short blocks from the ocean and close to many activities. The interiors and furnishings were designed by an award winning firm - modern, yet maintaining the tropical polynesian flavor. Huge walk in showers, granite counters in kitchen and bath, berber carpets, stone floors are just a few of the upgrades you will enjoy. It is walking distance to Foodland, Starbucks, and Jamba Juice (two blocks north on Waine'e)

Great for families!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our five days at John's condo. It is very comfortable with all the helpful amenities, including great A/C, wireless interness, washer/dryer, kitchen appliances, beach towels and toys. It is a short walk from both pools, which was super for our young boys. The grounds are pristine. Parking was generally available on the street to avoid the $20/day cost. Front Street, with its historic seaside charm, fun restaurants and shops, is two blocks away. John answered our questions quickly prior to arrival and checked in with us shortly after arriving to ensure that all was well. We'd return in a heartbeat!

What a super condo to go w/our super great time we had in Maui!

  • 5 of 5

This property is in the perfect location! Where this unit sits it's quiet, just steps away from the infinity pool that has tropics written all over it, clean & has the comforts of home. You're about a block away from the ever popular "Front Street" where there are many art galleries, shopping, restaurants & our favorite shaved ice place, "Ululani's". Many things are walking distance including the famous Banyan Tree. 1.5 miles away from a couple of family beaches, 15-20min away from Kapalua Bay which has some incredible snorkeling.

The owner John always replied promptly to questions I had. He was helpful & kind. The unit was equipped w/needed items for the beach. I've been stayed @ the Aina Nalu on two other occasions but this unit by far has exceeded the others. I highly recommend anyone to stay & rent from John. You will not be disappointed.

I hosted a family dinner poolside July 4th & reserved the Pavillion from Les (employee of property) which you are able to do. He was so nice, called me back & accommodated me. If you plan on a nice outside gathering, reserve this area the fist chance you have if you know which day you want it, glad I did!

I have nothing negative to say. I've been to Maui numerous times & by far this has been the better condo's I've stayed at. Everything was so convenient, centrally located to many sights & beaches. I brought my granddaughter (8yrs) which was her first time there & she loved it, didn't want to leave. I highly recommend using this place for your visit to Maui!

Aina nalu is a beautiful condo vacation spot. The salt water pool and cabanas were great

  • 5 of 5

The condo we stayed in was great. John had starter supplies in the kitchen and had beach toys for the kids along with beach towels and chairs. The stone showers were great. We had a wedding event and family members stayed throughout these condos. It was a great stay and when we go back to Maui , we will stay here.

Best Condo and Value

  • 5 of 5

John's condo is without a doubt the best condo at Aina Nalu. The location is perfect. The back door opens directly to the parking lot. It is also very close to the salt water pool.

I was lucky to book our stay in John's condo. He responded right away, answered my question immediately and sent me a reminder email about the keyless code the day before I checked in.

The condo had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. Several other family members rented rooms at Aina Nalu and our cost was by far the best. Everyone who stopped by mentioned how perfect the location was.

If I ever decide to spend another week on Maui, I hope John's condo is available. I can't imagine spending an entire week with my family anywhere else.
