Maalaea Condo Rental Photos and Description

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:

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!

In a word - AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we walked in the door, we were in love with this property. The view down the hall to the lanai drew me in to paradise. From there, everything just got better. We opened the door wall and the ocean breeze came pouring through. The view is great, the location is great and the accommodations were top notch. My wife and I both decided almost immediately that we had found our Maui home for future vacations.

During our stay there were no issues whatsoever. The kitchen is well appointed although we mostly used the refrigerator and the coffee maker. The main bedroom window opens up to the ocean side for a constant sound of waves and great breeze. We never even thought about needing A/C. Having 2 bathrooms was a great plus. Both are updated with great fixtures and tile showers. I'm sure the nice large screen television in the living room is fine, but we never turned it on.

The communication was clear, simple and checking in and out was a breeze. The people in the complex were all very friendly and the groundskeepers and manager were welcoming.

If you are looking for a home away from home in paradise - I would recommend this property wholeheartedly.

Perfect - exactly as advertised!

  • 5 of 5

My whole family loved this condo. The corner unit was quiet and has a spectacular view. We walked the miles of beach every morning, saw turtles, dolphins, and whales right from the lanai! The accommodations inside were excellent. Kitchen is modern and has everything you need! There were plenty of towels and beach towels and even a cooler for us to use! The location was great, easy access to the all parts of the islands as well as a harbor for excursions and nice beach restaraunts! And the tradewinds rocked! Working with the owners was a breeze! If I return to Maui this is where I will stay again! Thanks Pam!

Your own little place of Hawaiian PARADISE

  • 5 of 5

We spend an amazing 2 1/2 weeks in Pam's condo in Nov 2015. My daughter met us there from Sydney , Australia and she was thrilled with the beachfront location. Living in Australia she has access to some of the most beautiful beaches in the world but she would return to this condo & location in a heartbeat! Now that is a great recommendation to anyone looking for beachfront! We enjoyed morning walks on the beach watching the sunrise, then lazing by the pool or taking a dip or snorkel in the water. Everything was so close! It has it all! The condo was very roomy and appointed tastefully. . Best stocked kitchen ever! I loved that we had lots of beach towels! And we took the cooler with us everyday on our adventures around the Island! I must admit we did hesitate on the location as it is known for being windy but during the time we were there we had a couple of windy days but we experienced the best weather on the Island. We watched the clouds part overhead and the sun shone down on us ,not so lucky for those staying in Kihei! The location is so central to all the sights of Maui! We look forward to the day we can return to this lovely condo! For now we have wonderful memories! I would not hesitate to recommend Pam's condo!

First of let me just thank you Pam for the use of your beautiful condo! My husband and I came to Maui to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary and had the best time ever. Your home had everything we were looking for. Location was perfect. Quite and secluded. The condo had everything you could ever need. The views are spectacular! I photographed whales and turtles from the lanai! Snorkeling in the bay was great. I just can't recommend your home enough. Several friends are already interested just from the photos I posted. We will be back soon but will be staying more than just a week. Thanks again

An Amazing place to stay

  • 5 of 5

It was first time in Maui. It is a beautiful and very comfortable condo. Everything is nice and clean. The view is amazing especially the sunrise and sunset time. It is convenience location. Close to airport and Costco. Walking distance to Aquarium! The owner is very nice and kind. Her information book with pictures helps you to find things to do in Maui. We enjoyed very much staying in this oceanfront condo.

One word describes this place – WOW…

As soon as we opened the front door, we made up our mind of coming back to this place and renting the same unit. The view from the front door was already great and as soon as we started walking more into the unit, the view kept getting better and better. Finally got to the lanai, and we had the view of Haleakala to the left, all of Maalea Bay, miles and miles of deserted beach. The pictures do not do justice. You have to be there to see it. View of the sunrise over Haleakala every morning.

Loved the place as it was centrally located to everything that we wanted to do. Kahului was about 15 – 20 minute drive for major shopping, Kihei about 15 minutes for more shopping(groceries, restaurants, ABC store and Uulani(shaved ice)), Lahaina about 25 minutes away for more shopping, touring and more restaurants, short 10 minute walk to the Ocean Center and also charter boats for snorkeling at Molokini. You get my drift.

Even though it was a little windy during our stay, the winds kept the place comfortable as we left the front door and windows open.. Enjoyed the sound of the waves and the trade winds every night, very soothing. The whole place is well maintained and very clean. The pool area was also very clean and so were the bbq grills.

I don’t know what else to say about access to the beach but this is the ultimate. The beach is about a minute away from the front door. If you want more privacy, go walk east about 5 minutes or more as there is 3 miles of secluded beach to choose from. You can snorkel right off the beach as there are some reefs about 30 feet from shore or go paddleboarding.

All the amenities in this place are very good. Pots and pans were the very good brand, not some cheapo stuff. So were the plates, utensils, glasses, towels, beach towels, showers, etc…The owners did not skimp in providing quality stuff for whomever was going to stay here.

My only nit for this place is that the master bedroom did not have a regular locking door.

A couple of tips if you are staying here:

- Look for fruits(bananas, grapefruits) that are left by the pool area by Oscar(maintenance guy). They’re for everyone

- Watch the Maui Visitor Channel(channel 8) for tips about Maui in general

- Try Migrant, a restaurant located inside the Marriott in south Kihei. Great food for a good price(not too expensive)

- Do not go on the back road to Hana. Takes a lot out of you driving unless you’re a glutton for punishment.

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.

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