Property Details

Updated: Dec 6, 2014
Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-7)

The Ma'alaea Kai Penthouse Suite is a two-story, non-smoking unit with two full bedrooms, living room, and lanai. It can easily accommodate two couples plus kids or a family of six or seven. Probably the best feature is a two-story, open-beam ceiling living room, and lanai. A two-story, glass wall opens to a breathtaking view of the ocean.

As you plan your ultimate Maui vacation, do not settle for a 'partial ocean view.' The Ma'alaea Kai Penthouse Suite looks out on a huge ocean view and the pool, surrounded by meticulously-kept grounds. In the distance is the ancient Haleakala Volcano.

The Ma'alaea Kai Penthouse Suite is handsomely decorated with a Japanese-Hawaiian flair so consistent with the island's culture. The upstairs bedroom enjoys an open view of the ocean through the two-story windows. The living room and lanai have a spacious feeling that literally mirrors the deep blue Pacific Ocean.

The kitchen is fully-equipped with everything you will need for a quick breakfast or a gourmet dinner served out on the lanai. All the appliances are new including microwave, toaster, coffee grinder for fresh Kona coffee, and a four-speed smoothie machine so you can enjoy all the incredible tropical fruit available here on Maui.

The Ma'alaea Kai is simply the best maintained and most beautiful condominium-hotel along the Ma'alaea Bay coast. A huge, putting green-style lawn and bright blue pool are the only things that separate you from the ocean. Palm trees sway in the tradewinds and gorgeous tropical flowers bloom everywhere. Unlike most other resort areas on Maui, Hauoli Street is a short (one-fourth mile) tropical walk to Sugar Beach. Just north, a two-minute walk takes you to Ma'alaea Bay small boat harbor and shopping at the Ma'alaea Harbor Village.

Sugar Beach is just a five-minute walk from the Ma'alaea Kai and is probably the quietest beach on Maui, and one of the longest. You can walk or run along this beach for miles and pass only a few other people. Sugar Beach is great at sunrise or sunset or for catching rays midday without another soul in sight. Because it is tucked around the bay, Sugar Beach is an ideal place for children to enjoy the ocean where waves and undertow are always safe.

The Ma'alaea small boat harbor is one of only a few such harbors on Maui. This is the island's main launching point to the crystal-clear, tropical waters of Maui. Snorkeling trips, deep-sea fishing, and sunset cruises all begin right here and you do not even have to park. Above the harbor is the Ma'alaea Harbor Village, a small but quaint shopping area with four excellent restaurants. The Maui Ocean Center is also located here and a visit is highly recommended. The General Store has reopened and has excellent food and almost anything you need for cooking meals. It has great coffee and pastries, I always enjoy shopping at the store.

The Seascape Restaurant is my choice for lunch and hosts a stunning open-air view of the harbor and ocean. A new Italian restaurant opened and the food is fabulous. Beach Bums is a great addition to the Harbor, you can have breakfast, while chatting with the local boat captains. The food is great and the price is great too. They also have a really nice Happy Hour...Mai Tai's are $3.50!

Sunrise from the Ma'alaea Kai Penthouse Suite is an experience in itself. Pre-dawn light brings the chatter of a thousand birds and iridescent blue waters. The trade winds ruffle the palm trees and caress your senses as you sit with your first cup of Kona coffee in the huge lanai. As the sun breaks over the ancient 10,000-foot Halealala Volcano, your face and your world are bathed in sunlight. Your penthouse is illuminated with a bright warmth that leaves you glowing. It is time to think about the day's activities or simply sit back and have another cup of coffee.

Ma'alaea Bay is Maui's most quiet, secluded, best-kept secret. It is truly the most centrally located vacation area on all of Maui, lying at the ocean front and between two volcanoes that formed the island. The old whaling port Lahaina is 18 miles to the north. Bustling Kihei is eight miles to the south, and it takes just ten minutes to drive from the airport to the Ma'alaea Kai Penthouse Suite.

So Relaxing

  • 5 of 5
I stayed and this beautiful ocean view condo in February 2014. I'm currently booking another trip in January 2015. This lovely place has everything you need and if you have children all the water toys you need such as boards, snorkel, fins, beach towels etc. I happened to travel by myself and it was the most relaxing place I have ever been to. 5 minute walk to sugar beach, deli and restaurants and shops just minutes away. Really no need for even a rental car - Once you are on these grounds you really don't want to leave. I didn't - Going back again in 2015 and can't wait - Todd and Stefani Clark are excellent hosts - Mahalo

Exceptional View

The accommodation was very comfortable. The kitchen is equipped with everything and we found the location to be very central to get to most places. Maalaea is windy but we like because it takes the edge off the very hot temperature we experienced on our last day in Maui.
Stefan and Todd were very quick to answer any questions we had. We could not have chosen a better place. Thank you for sharing your penthouse with us.

There aren't enough superlatives about our experiences and the cooperation of
Todd and Stefani. We were married in Maui and knew nothing about where we were going or where we were going to stay, as we had never been there before. Todd & Stefani were/are GREAT! Their help and cooperation eased any apprehension we might have had. Our stay was so fantastic that we have booked another trip so we can let everything soak in one more time. When you put a great trip together, include a fantastic condo (loft, lanai, view, ect.), an unbelievable peaceful central location, the love of your life, and heaven on earth..Do we need to say anymore? We realize that everyone's preferences are different but as far as we are concerned, it will never be where will we stay but when! Mahalo, Todd & Stefani for being such GREAT people

My husband and I had the experience of our life staying at the Ma'alea Kai Penthouse suite. We were on the Island to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary, and that we did!
Upon arrival we took notice of the lavish decor on the walls of the living room, the 2 story windows with an awsome view of landscape and water both and the inviting Lanai. We stayed in the upstairs room. The bed was not only beautifuly carved wood, but like sleeping on a cloud. One thing that is so cool about this place was there are stunning views every where you look, even from the shower..I kid you not.
Our morning's started with beautiful sunrises and great coffee on the Lanai while we watched the whales flip and flop and sometimes breech right there in front of us. Amazing! Not that you ever need to leave because everything you need is right there, green green grass, heated pool, gas and charchole grills, blenders, and ice etc.. we did leave a couple of mornings for a short walk up to Beach Bums where they serve deliciouse breakfast's. Because this Penthouse is so centrally located getting to afternoon or evening activities is quick and easy. I just can't say enough about this place. There is so much to do on this Island. We were torn each day about stayin at the condo or going out. So which ever you choose to do, do it from Ma'alea Kai Penthouse Suit.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this lovely condo. The owners have furnished it so beautifully and comfortably, and were absolutely GREAT to work with! The kitchen was better equipped than most rentals we've stayed in, and there was all kinds of beach equipment (boogie boards, beach towels & mats, snorkeling gear, etc.) that we were free to use. The big floor-to-ceiling window made for a wonderful ocean view, and we loved eating meals out on the lanai. The grounds of this complex are indeed meticulously kept, the pool temperature was just right, and the atmosphere was exceptionally peaceful. We enjoyed being in Ma'alaea because of its central, but off-the-beaten path location and its "community" feel. We enjoyed strolling down to the neighborhood market for sandwiches, drinks & snacks (even apple bananas from the store owner's own yard!), and going to Beach Bums Bar & Grill for happy hour and wonderful breakfasts. (You've gotta try the smoked spam!) It was handy to be within walking distance of the marina (Ma'alaea Harbor), since we had a Molokini snorkeling trip on our agenda, and that's where many of Maui's snorkeling & fishing trips depart from. We would not hesitate to recommend this condo to friends, or to stay here again ourselves. We had a wonderful time, and we thank you, Todd & Stefani, for making this a perfect "home away from home" for us! Best regards.

Awesome Vacation Destination

  • 5 of 5
We loved the view of the palm trees,beach,ocean and mountain all in one.Beautifully manicured grounds to relax on,quiet and friendly.Being centrally located made it a short drive to wherever you wanted to go.Just a two minute walk and you could go on one of a number of different marine excursions.We would love to comeback during whale season as we are sure it would be quite a show from anywhere in your condo.
