About the property

2 bedroom, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 4. w/fully equiped kitchen.

Our Ocean Front condo has been remodeled in an island-style with an asianl touch. Enjoy Maui sand and surf just steps from the front of our complex. The Kanai A Nalu resort is centrally located on the southwest side of Maui at the beginning of a pristine beach that runs for 3.5 miles (or more) uninterrupted to the north end of Kihei. Our 3rd floor corner unit is a prime location on the quiet side of the complex (one of only 4 such units). It offers spectacular panoramic views of Haleakala (volcano), Molokini, other islands, and the south shore of Maui (from North Kihei to Wailea and beyond). You can fall asleep to the sound of gentle surf and wake to a glorious Maui sun rising over the 10,000 foot Haleakala volcano. From our private lanai enjoy breakfast, lunch and/or dinner while watching the ocean surf, whales and surfers during the given season. We often opt to dine in on our lanai because this wonderful setting is seldom matched when dining out.

The master bedroom (furnished in island-style) and bath are private with ocean views from two sides, and includes a wall mounted flat screen TV. The 2nd bedroom (furnished in island-style) and bath can be closed for privacy with a unique sliding door. The lanai is furnished to seat four for dining. The kitchen is equipped with range, refrigerator/freezer (with ice-maker), dishwasher, washer/dryer, and microwave. The dining area offers a dining table which is set to seat 4, but can be expanded to seat 8 or 10. The living area is furnished in an island-style with an oriental touch and includes a 42' HDTV and a HD BlueRay Player plus a supply of movies for your enjoyment. Our kitchen has a plentiful supply of dinner ware and cooking utensils and appliances.

Other amenities in the complex include:

Heated Pool just steps from the ocean

Gas BBQ's next to the Pool

Plenty of Lounge Chairs for Sun Bathing

In the condo you will find:

Beach Chairs and beach towels

2 hair dryers

Small Coolers for Picnics (also take one when shopping)

Float Noodles for the Pool or Ocean

About Pam Thompson

Bruce and Pam Thompson

Pam Thompson purchased this condo in 2001

Why Pam Thompson chose Maui

We loved the setting. Our unit is on the 3rd floor, a corner unit so the guest bedroom window is not on the walkway. To fall asleep with the ocean waves is a treat. The beach borders a National Wildlife Reserve. It's like finding the 'real' Maui. Turtles swimming by are an extra plus. It's Paradise for us!

Another dream vacation

  • 5 of 5

This condo is absolutely perfect for us. The views and the sound of the waves are perfect. Every morning on the lanai, every night feeling the breeze. The accommodations are perfect for a relaxing time. Centrally located so you can get to anything on Maui easily. Just beautiful.

Wonderful location and a homey setting

  • 5 of 5

This is a clean updated and comfortable condo with an amazing view in a central location. The closeby village of Maalaea

provides several good restaurant choices

within walking distance. The long beach walks and sunrises over the volcano are

stunning. Love the quiet local and simple surroundings off the resort circuit.

Amazing! All the comforts of home plus that view!!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely incredible! Extremely comfortable accommodations, everything at your fingertips, felt like our own home away from home. Just as you would expect from "Home Away!" We loved every minute of our 12 day stay. We will definitely come back! The other people staying and living in this complex were all super friendly and we felt right at home. Nothing could have been better... it was just so perfect! Can't wait to go back... a big 10 star review for this condo! Perfect in every way!!!!

Pass on this unit.

  • 1 of 5

We would not recommend this unit. I will list what we did not like and then what we did.

When we opened the windows dirt blew into the bedrooms because they have not been cleaned in ages. I am not talking about a little, I mean all over the beds.

The window and door screens do not fit properly anymore and allow bugs to get in. If the light is on over the dining table you will have a house full of bugs. Eat in the dark or close the balcony door and feel the heat.

The overall cleanliness of the unit is poor. The cleaning people need to be replaced. Any cheap hotel would have been cleaner.

The bathroom rugs were disgusting. We tossed them aside but it is time to throw them out.

Needs lightbulbs in one of the bathrooms. Very dark and dingy. It was obvious it has been that way for a very long time.

Cockroaches in the master bath and bedroom. Would you like to bring some home? We understand that the islands have bugs but we have rented condos before and have not had this problem.

Stained sheets which looked like they were not changed when we arrived. We washed them.

There is no beach in front of or close to the unit. You need to climb down a wall and walk over rocks or walk down the street to get to the beach and most of the beach is unswimmable due to rocks.

The unit is old and is in need of at least a facelift.

There was more but you get the picture. If I could have left and got my money back I would have.

The building is located in and area that requires you to drive everywhere. This may be a positive or negative. I did not mind but my wife did.

What we liked - the view from the balcony and the grounds around the building.

Owner's Response: Since we've owned this condo for 16 years and in that time this is the first bad review, I guess that's a good record. I hope that you will read the rest of the positive reviews written by over 40 guests and not base your decision on this review. I will address each of the issues presented. On Maui the dust blows much of the time. It's part of Maui and no matter how many times you dust, there will always be dirt and dust blowing in the air. If the windows are open you are going to get some dust blowing into the condo. Bugs also live on Maui. This is the tropics. The condo building has a regular bug control preventative spraying every 3 months. Service occurred while these guests were staying in the unit, so that may account for the extra bugs, plus it was rainy during February which brings out the roaches. In talking with the manager today, he said he has not had any reports about our unit and bugs. The bathroom rugs are small, 100% cotton and beige. The cleaning people are instructed to wash them after every guest. Also, there are 5-6 replacement rugs available in the closet. When the housekeepers clean they wash down all the surfaces, wash the sheets, towels and rugs, dust, vacuum and mop and make sure everything is clean inside and on the lanai. The unit had a complete professional remodel of both baths with new showers, tile, paint and granite countertops in 2012. The kitchen also had new granite installed in 2012 and new paint throughout the unit. Please see the pictures and decide for yourself. There is a sandy beach in front of the condo that can be reached by stairs off the grounds. The ocean changes continually and since it was winter, the waves were probably larger and there may have been some exposed rocks. Normally the waves are very calm and it's easy to swim in front of the the condo and walk the sandy beach. Please see the pictures and read the reviews of other guests who have been very pleased with what is offered. Thank you, Pam Thompson

Great place on Maui

  • 5 of 5

I almost hate to share this because I want to be able to get this rental again in the future.

Even though the property was built in the early 70's, this unit is modern, clean and the view is awesome. The beach by the unit is 5 miles of great walking and is also very clean. I can't say enough good about this unit.

5 stars is not enough!

Our oceanfront condo has been remodeled in an island-style with an Asian touch. The sand and surf are just steps from the front of our building. Kanai A Nalu is located at the beginning of a pristine beach that runs for 3.5 miles uninterrupted to North Kihei. Our 3rd floor corner unit is on the quiet side of the complex and offers spectacular views of Haleakala, Molokini, other islands and the full length of the southeast shore of Maui (Kihei to Wailea and beyond). You can fall asleep to the sound of gentle surf and wake to a glorious Maui sun rising over the 10,000 foot Haleakala volcano across Maalaea Bay. From our private lanai you can enjoy breakfast, lunch and/or dinner while watching the surf and during the seasons, whales or surfers on Maalaea Bay. Our master bedroom has ocean views from two sides and our 2nd bedroom has a garden view of the private/undeveloped property next door. The kitchen is remodeled and fully equipped with range, side by side refrigerator/freezer with ice maker, washer/dryer, dishwasher, and microwave. Our living room has an oriental style with air conditioning, a 42' HDTV and a BlueRay HD Player. The 2nd bedroom and bath can be closed for privacy from the main area with a unique sliding door. Free wireless or wired high speed internet is included.

Other amenities offered in the complex include:

Heated Pool in the central grounds near the ocean

Gas BBQ's near the Pool and close to the ocean

Walking distance to the Maui Ocean Center aquarium, shops and restaurants.

Also, walking distance to Maalaea Harbor for a variety of cruises (sightseeing, whale watching, snorkeling, scuba diving, and sports fishing).

The Pacific Whale Foundation located in the Maalaea Shops area has terrific educational whale, dolphin, snorkeling and turtle watching cruises.

Swimming and body surfing directly in front of the complex is generally very good.
