Property Details

Updated: May 27, 2015
Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Quiet, romantic, tropical Kana'i A Nalu, at the north end of Ma'alaea Bay in South Maui, provides a unique setting for your Hawaiian vacation. Our privately owned two bedroom two bath beachfront 'home away from home' is a corner unit on the second floor of a 4 story building at water's edge. Our private lanai, 30 feet from the ocean, looks across white sand beach and ocean to neighboring Islands and 10,000 foot Haleakala. It provides the perfect winter viewing spot to watch, up close and personal, the mother hump back whales train their young for their long trip back to the Northern Pacific

Enjoy all the benefits of a corner unit on the second floor: the added security of not being at ground level, the privacy of having bedroom windows looking out on the beautiful courtyard, pool and ocean instead of sidewalk and parking lot and the absence of foot traffic past your private lanai.

All prices are in US Dollars.

The master bedroom has a comfortable king-size bed with a private bath and wall to wall windows with full view of beach, courtyard and pool. The second bedroom, with a view of the pool, courtyard and ocean, has twin beds that can be made up as a king. A second bathroom is across a small alcove. A queen-size sleeper couch in the living room can accommodate up to 2 additional guests. The tropical furnishing throughout and the well stocked full kitchen and generous supply of beach gear will make your vacation one of easy comfort. Our private lanai gives us much pleasure - reading, eating, whale watching or just plain relaxing to the sound of the gentle surf. Our Green Sea Turtles are seen 10 to 15 feet offshore and the reef just off our beach delights the snorkelers. The beach in front of our condo continues to the north end of Kihei as part of the Kealia Nature Preserve: this translates to no development, no traffic and no problems - just 4 miles of empty white sand beach.

There is WiFi in the condo.

A five to ten minute walk from our condo presents a wide variety of activities: snorkel and sunset cruises from the marina, a world class aquarium, miniature golf park and bumper boats, a small shopping area and many different restaurants. The eating choices range from the #1 rated restaurant on the Island through several other excellent, less pricey eateries to Carl's Jr and a Deli/convenience store.

We provide the best of both worlds on Maui. If you are running away from work, snow and cold, or responsibilities in general, our laid back remnant of 'Old Maui' will have you relaxed in no time. If you want activity and want to see the Island, you are 15 minutes from the airport, 20 minutes from the North Shore, Lahaina, Kihei and Wailea, and 5 miles or less from 4 golf courses. When you are overwhelmed with all the activities available on the Island, trade the traffic and heavily populated tourist areas for the quiet serenity of Ma'alaea; dig your toes into the white sand beach in front of your own private lanai and unwind to the sound of the surf and the trade winds blowing thru palm fronds.

We Welcome You to Our Paradise Found!

Guestbook comments from the owner

This condo was awesome. My wife and her friend and I came for 10 days during March of 2014 from MN. Everything we could ask for! The beach was great. The Lanai tiles had been re-done. The only complaint I heard was the weather atop Haleakala was rainy/foggy. But no one can control that! They had just wrapped up burning the cane, but the condo was still very tidy!

This is the 2nd time we stayed at Don and Colleen's condo. This latest time was 8/5/07 through 8/21/07. They have a very nice condo, great for a family. I love the location and that is an end unit. Master looks over the beach and pool, 2nd looks over the pool. No issues with not wanting to leave a window open in the 2nd bedroom since a lot of the time the second bedrooms face a walkway. Lanai looks directly onto the beach (35 ft). No A/C, but it is not needed with the tradewinds that come through the valley and through Maalaea. Nice central location 20-25 minutes to Lahina, 10 minutes to central Kihei, 10 minutes to Kahalui. Like not being in the middle of a "city", sugarcane field behind complex. A little market within walking distance up the street for the emergency milk or small needs. I like the tile floor throughout the unit, so much easier to see that it is clean than carpet. We usually had breakfast at the condo, 75 / 25 on dinner, using the BBQ's out by the pool is very nice setting (they have gas a charcoal). Had no problems with anything, a non issue which is how it is supposed to work.

Great place for all!

My husband and I travel twice a year and are always looking for something relaxing and near the beach. Well...this was the nicest condo we have ever stayed at. Our daughter and son-in-law and two year old grandbaby joined us and we all had the time of our lives. The pool was perfect for the little one and the beach was fantastic. We woke up every morning to a beautiful sunrise and often times saw whales while sitting there. I would highly recommend this property to anyone. The condo had everything you could think of and was decorated in a comfortable unique way. We will be back!

Loved this place!

  • 5 of 5
If you want a place to unwind and relax this is it. The location of the condo, just steps from the ocean, makes it ideal for spending more time doing what you like. I came with my husband, and our 2 sons, aged 16 and 20. All of us enjoyed it and would love to return. My favorite part was bobbing in the ocean right in front of the condo. It was not uncommon to be out there with just one or two others and sometimes completely alone. So relaxing! It was a very peaceful place to lounge and read. I enjoyed the ease of coming and going without all of us needing to move together as one unit and drive to the beach.
The decor of the condo is lovely. The tiled flooring is beautiful, area rugs are of high quality as well as furnishings. Listening to the waves at night in the super comfy king bed, trade winds blowing, made for the best rest. Heck, it made for great naps, too.
We did venture out to Lahaina, Kaanapali, Wailea, Kihei. Found good eats, played in the surf, went snorkeling ... yet, being at the condo was like coming home.

How soon can we go back?

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Don & Colleen's condo from June 12 - June 24, 2014 This was our second time at Kanai A Nalu but our first time in this unit. Will jump at the chance to return to Maui and this unit for the following reasons:

1) Spacious unit and loved the tile floors
2) Amazing patio views of the bay and morning sunrise
3) Steps from Sugar Beach-walkers and joggers can stay on Sugar Beach all the way to Kihei (about 6 miles round trip to the pier across from Ululani's)
4) Communal gas and charcoal grills- fun to grill with other guests and meet other vacationers
5) Room had beach towels, chairs, coolers, umbrella, and boogie boards
6) Wonderful breeze flows thru the unit keeping things cool and comfortable day and night
7) Very quiet Bosch dishwasher
8) Climate appropriate furnishings
9) Immaculate grounds and pool with plenty of lounge chairs
10) Centrally located to Kihei, Lahaina, & Wailea
11) Sound of lapping waves and swaying palms lull you to sleep nightly
12) Quiet end unit (during our stay we had no one above or below us)

We look forward to returning to Maui and this unit very soon. Highly recommended!

We will return! Great condo.

  • 4 of 5
This was a great condo to stay at for many reasons:
1- centrally located (we could travel 20 minutes either direction and be at great beaches).
2- it is quiet and you are literally steps away from the beach.
3- great area to barbecue, walk on the beach or dip in the pool. It is a small pool, but it does the trick).
4- the condo itself was clean and had everything we needed for a 10 day trip. We even used the boogie boards!
5- the oven needs to be fixed. The temperature would not heat up passed 300 degrees making it nearly impossible to cook in.
6. every morning we saw a whale and in the evening turtles were everywhere. We would stand on the shore and watch them swim the waves. Very cool!

Awesome Views!

  • 5 of 5
We were able to spend a wonderful Christmas vacation at this spacious Maui condo! The condo was very comfortable and had everything we needed for a perfect trip. They even provided beach gear (beach chairs, cooler, boogie boards, etc.) which was much appreciated. We spent most of the time on the lanai and enjoyed the most amazing views!! We loved watching the sunrise over Haleakala each morning and we were lucky to see whales and turtles! The condo is situated steps from the beach on a very beautiful bay. We rented a stand-up paddle board and were able to learn how to use it at the beach right in front of the condo. We enjoyed staying in Maalaea and being central to all areas of the island. We took many day trips which included hiking Waihee ridge and Pipiwai trails, Snorkel trip with the Pacific Whale foundation, Road to Hana and snorkeling the many beautiful South beaches and nature reserves. It was so nice to have a great condo to come back to after a day of adventure. We also enjoyed the pool, grills and beautiful landscaping of the resort. Thank you Don and Colleen for sharing your piece of paradise. We hope to come back again!

From the Owner

It was love at first sight. We had stayed for several years up in Kaanapali back in the early '70s and found it too crowded, too congested - even then. Now it was 1998 and we were giving Maui another try, staying up the street, before the beach starts. We walked through the grounds at Kana'i A Nalu and we were hooked. Still feel the same 17 years later.

From the Owner

Relaxed Island living with a great view of the islands, beach and ocean. Love watching the whales come back every year - they are in so close we can watch the mothers teaching the babies. Enjoy the friendships developed over the years with the other owners and the many renters that return year after year.
