vacation rental description

This condo has what you come to Maui for. Twenty feet from the water. Must See 'VIRTUAL TOUR' - Link at bottom of site just above the Guest Reviews. We have the best Maui location in Maalaea. (peaceful, uncrowded and non 'touristy'). The best building in Maalaea - Kanai a Nalu (first and best one on the 4 mile beach). The best unit (401) in Kanai a Nalu (oceanfront corner - fantastic view from every window). Fall asleep to the gentle sound of the surf outside your bedroom window and wake to a beautiful Maui sunrise across the bay over magnificent 10,000 foot Haleakala. Eat breakfast on your lanai while you watch whales and surfers on the bay below you. Unobstructed views ( the best in Maalaea) from every window - even the kitchen looks across swaying sugar cane fields to the West Maui Mountains. Both bedrooms and the living room have fantastic views but also complete privacy (We never shut the curtains). Kitchen is totally remodeled and Brand New. New island style furniture including a new Beautyrest king size bed, new carpet, very comfortable tropic style living room set , free wireless DSL, side by side fridge with filtered water/ice in door, Air Conditioning, washer -dryer. We just added a 37' flat screen HD TV with a blue ray DVD that can wirelessly access your Netflix account .

Maalaea and Kanai a Nalu: Maalaea is a small village that is the best of both worlds. We are far enough away from the traffic and 'shoulder to shoulder' tourist areas that you can truly relax and appreciate what Maui living is really about. Yet we are the most central spot on the island for easy access to all that Maui has to offer. Our Kanai-a-Nalu condo complex is a four-story, U-shaped building with a beautiful courtyard that is open to the ocean. It shelters a wonderful tile swimming pool on the ocean's edge. Parents can sit under a tree and watch their children -- both in the swimming pool and on the beach at the same time. You may decide to walk down to Maalaea Harbor to take a whale watching, snorkeling, fishing, or sunset dinner cruise. The harbor area also boasts the newly constructed Maui Ocean Center, a world-class marine aquarium considered to be the best in the Islands. It also offers several fine ocean view restaurants, interesting shops, and places to buy fixings for a quick meal 'at home'.

Author Recommendation and Guest Book: We knew we liked the Maalaea area and our condo (Kanai-a-Nalu) in particular. This is what the authors of PARADISE FAMILY GUIDE TO MAUI have to say: 'Have you wondered where the authors of this guide stay? If we aren't moving around the island, sampling different properties, you'll find us catching our breath here (Kanai-a-Nalu), and enjoying the sunny shores and gentle breezes of Maalaea.'

Below are coments from our Gueast book in the condo. Be sure to read the Reviews others have entered directly on this website. Many gueats have returned -even all way the from Germany

We were here for our honeymoon and it couldn't have been more perfect. The location of this condo gave us the relaxation and seclusion that was very much needed after a busy summer. -- CA

We enjoyed our two-week stay -- just wish it could have been longer. Your condo is equipped with everything anyone could ever need and the location is certainly the best. Thank you for sharing with us. - Memphis, TN

More Guest Book: I think we did everything possible during our ten-day stay. This condo gave us convenient access to the whole island. -- The Murtons - Plano, TX

Thank you for letting us stay at your beautiful condo. The view was perfect for watching whales, myna birds and beachcombers. -- Pritchard - Portland, OR

We are leaving today after two lovely months in your condo. It is the best furnished one we've stayed in. Thanks for everything you've done to make this condo so homelike. -- Biesanz - Winona, MN

This trip to Maui makes it number four, and all four times we stayed at Kanai -a- Nalu. From the Lanai we watched the waves roll in and the whales jump. Thanks for making our 4th trip to Maui a fantastic one! -- Giegoldt - Deerfield, IL

The last two weeks will go into our fond memories book. This spot cannot be beat for natural beauty, comfort and convenience. -- Keron - Seattle, WA

A new king size Beautyrest mattress cushions you wonderfully as drift to sleep with the lullaby of the waves. The view at night is also spectacular with the lights of Kihei and Wailaea across the Bay. On many evenings the moon shimmers on the water like a glowing ribbon. The second bedroom has two comfortable twin beds which can be put together into a queen size bed and also an ocean view. Both bedrooms have their own bathroom so it also makes the condo ideal for two couples or a family. One thing I particularly like about my condo as compared to most others in Kanai a Nalu, and in Maalaea for that matter, is the complete privacy of the bedrooms. No one can look in but you have fantastic views and never need to cover the window

With my cell phone and DSL I can be at the 'office' while sitting on my lanai and watching the surfers or whales (in season). The new 30 inch HD television has a built in DVD player. Oh, yes, we also have a gazillion cable stations. There are beach chairs and at least two coolers to take on your picnics or island adventure. We just added a 37' flat screen in the bedroom with a blue ray DVD player that can wirelessly access your Netflix account.

traveler reviews for this maalaea condo rental


Review submitted: March 27, 2008   Date of arrival: March 1, 2008

This was the most wonderful location and we loved every minute here!!The condo was absolutely the best. Never used the AC, the breezes were enough to keep it cool. It was so clean and had everything we needed. We loved seeing all the whales and surfers right off the balcony and hearing the waves at night. Lots of great adventures close by. Owner was very easy to deal with and quick to reply to emails and questions. Our only regret is that our vacations wasn't longer!

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, sight seeing, tourists without a car, romantic getaway

Owners response: We were happy to hear that the guests enjoyed our condo so much. This is the latest comment but very similar to many we get. People never have regrets about staying at "Maalaea Magic".

Clean, Quiet, and Beautiful

Review submitted: June 18, 2014   Date of arrival: June 13, 2014

If you are reading this review and thinking about renting it, STOP! Go back and book it before someone else takes your dates. We loved this place, my wife is hypersensitive to noise and it was so quiet and peaceful. About the only thing you hear is the ocean which is about 20 feet from your bedroom window. As soon as you walk in you can tell it's taken care of with love. The location is perfect, 5 minutes from a good golf course, 10 to 25 minutes from several towns you will want to go to. The owners are very easy to deal with. It's the best unit in the complex, corner unit, on the top floor. So if your looking for a quiet relaxing (this is Maui after all) condo look no further.

Recommended for: age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, sight seeing, romantic getaway

Great Location! Great Views!

Review submitted: June 14, 2014   Date of arrival: June 3, 2014

We loved the location and the quaint atmosphere. The views were beautiful from the Lanai, living room and master bedroom. It is very windy but that helps keep the condo cooler. We loved watching the Sea Turtles from our Lanai. The beach was nice to walk down and did allow swimming. We enjoyed seating in the lounge chairs on the lawn in front of the condo reading a book and watching the waves. It was very convenient to all of the many things we did while in Maui. We loved it and would stay at this condo again.
