Best Oceanfront Condo, LAULOA, Remodeled, WiFi, HDTV, Specials

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Jul 23, 2016
Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5)

Aloha. We searched for a second home with an unobstructed ocean view on Maui for many years. We found our piece of paradise and would like to share it with you as a vacation rental. The condo has been completely remodeled. Save by booking directly with us by Credit Card. Email us and we will send you a link to view the Virtual Tour. You can view a SLIDESHOW of the remodeled condo, just scroll down to the link above the Availability Calendar.

What makes this condo so exquisite is that it is on the ground floor, without a confining balcony railing, separating you from the view. For years we rented upper floor condos but the lanais were so cramped, there was no room to “spread out” and be comfortable. We have special security locks on the two sliding glass doors so it is safe to sleep with them open and enjoy the beautiful ocean breezes. Our lanai opens to a huge, manicured lawn and the ocean, just steps away. Relax on the comfortable lounge chairs or dine on the outdoor dining furniture. Both the master suite and the living room face the ocean with sliding glass doors to the lanai, offering a double wall of glass and, therefore, twice the ocean view. Enjoy snorkeling, fishing and swimming right outside your lanai door. We are located at the end of the building, away from the pool, where it is absolutely quiet and there is no road noise because we are on a dead-end street. Have a relaxing massage or spa treatment in the condo or, better yet, on the lanai. Info provided in the condo.

You will find beautiful wood laminate floors, a gourmet kitchen with granite slab counters, maple cabinets, all new appliances including a large capacity washer/dryer, and a granite bar with bar stools. The kitchen was remodeled in 2010 and we will again remodel in November, tearing down walls, installing new cabinets, flooring and Caribbean Green granite (pictures will be posted in December). The bathrooms have been completely remodeled and have granite counter tops, Italian marble tile floors and walls, imported Swarovski crystal faucet fixtures, an over-sized glass block shower in the master bath and a bathtub in the second bathroom. Other amenities include a Security Safe for your laptop and valuables, leather sofa with two recliners for real comfort while reading or viewing your favorite TV show, a Flat Screen HDTV, HBO and On Demand, DVD/CD, free unlimited long-distance calling throughout the U.S. and Canada, Voice Mail, high-speed wireless Internet, WiFi, very comfortable beds (new Cal King Serta, Dr. Greene cool gel mattress) in master bedroom and (Simmons Beautyrest) queen in guest bedroom, plush towels and linens, beach chairs and chaise lounges, beach towels, beach umbrellas, coolers, snorkeling equipment and water toys.

Watch the whales from your lanai while taking in the view of the Haleakala Volcano and Molokini. During the season the Humpbacks come into the Bay, where the water is calm, to have their calves. Watch them through our telescope.

No smoking indoors, please.

Why Maalaea Bay?

Location, Location, Location: Maalaea Bay is located mid-way between Lahaina and Kaanapali to the North and Wailea to the South. It is 3 miles from Kihei, a great place for moderate priced dining and shopping. The location cuts off hours of driving time to and from the best of what Maui has to offer, like a quick zip to Hana, the Volcano, and East Shore. We are only 15 minutes from the airport and the big box stores (Costco, etc.).

The Beach: Enjoy five miles of pristine, white sand beach that will never be developed because it is a Wildlife Reserve. It is the longest stretch of undeveloped beach on all of Maui. We love to walk the 5-mile (round trip) stretch of beach from Maalaea to Sugar Beach. It’s a wonderful way to exercise and we try to walk it everyday when we are there. There are many trees on the beach for shade, a rarity on Maui beaches.

The Water: The ocean is very calm in Maalaea Bay due to an offshore reef. It is safe to swim there, especially for children. If you enjoy being knocked down by the big waves, go North to Lahania/Kaanapali or South to Kihei/Wailea.

The Weather: Maalaea Bay is on the driest part of the island. It rarely rains. You can be sitting on a sunny beach while watching the rain to the North and to the South. Why have your vacation spoiled by rain?

Dining and Attractions: Maalaea Bay offers six wonderful oceanfront restaurants including the new Saltimbocca Italian Cucina, Buzz’s Warf, Beach Bums Sports Bar, Sunsets, General Store Cafe, and PORTO Artisan Pizza, walking distance away at Maalaea Village. The Maui Ocean Center Aquarium is a “must see” (voted Hawaii Top Rated Family Attraction) and a beautifully landscaped Miniature Golf Course and Amusement Center, is also within walking distance. Leaving regularly from Maalaea Harbor are boats offering fishing, diving and snorkeling, whale and dolphin watching, luncheon and sunset cruises.

About the Owner

We live in the foothills of Northern California and are often surrounded by 3 feet of snow in the winter so after vacationing in Hawaii for over 30 years, our dream was to have a 'real' home on Maui where we can enjoy the marvelous climate and beauty of the island.

Love This Condo

LOVE THIS CONDO

We’ve been going to Maui for years and have found that Maalaea is the very best place to stay. We discovered this condo 2 years ago and we’ve already been here twice and plan to book for next year, well in advance because it books up fast. This condo is by far our favorite. Aside from the beautiful location and interior, there are some very special things that set this condo apart from the others. The beds are first rate, the recliner sofa is great for relaxing while watching TV, the dining chairs are very comfortable, bathrooms and wood floors lovely, and we just love the zero gravity chaise lounges. Being on the first floor is the best because you are not stuck on a small balcony and you can spread out and enjoy the beautiful grass lawn and walk right out to the ocean to swim or snorkel, or to the pool and BBQ. Can’t wait to get back.

Quiet and peaceful. Clean

  • 5 of 5

Susan was great to deal with. She responded quickly and thoroughly. Maalaea Bay was an ideal central location . Completely away from the town noise but not isolated. We had several mornings where sea turtles were on the other side of the sea wall. Water access for snorkeling is available.

The condo was completely stocked. We didn't miss a thing. I brought spices but next time will bring my favourite kitchen knife. That was my personal preference though.

I understand renovations are planned for this year. I hope Susan lets me know when they are done so we can come back and see. The place is lovely and will be even more lovely when renovated. It is well kept up. Susan is taking excellent care of her property.

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

The central location allowed us to experience the entire island or just relax on the lanai from sunrise to sunset. The condo had everything we needed including privacy. We weren't confined by a balcony and therefore felt the entire grounds and ocean were ours. Each day we walked to the ocean's edge to watch the turtles, snorkel, and swim as the palm trees gently swayed in the tropical trade winds.

This place is just like a picture postcard. We'll be back, next time longer.

Beautiful condo with amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

This condo has all you need and more for a wonderful vacation. The view from the living room and master bedroom is amazing! We stayed here with another couple, plenty of room and privacy. The 2 full bathrooms are awesome, especially the shower in the master bath! Communication with the owners is awesome, they stay in touch and give so much information about the area. We would highly recommend this condo and will stay here again on our next visit to Maui.

Location

From the Owner

Maui offers a healthy lifestyle where we can enjoy swimming, snorkeling and especially our 5 mile walk on our quiet beach. We wanted to be close to everything yet away from the crowded beaches, hotels and tourists so Maalaea was just perfect, centrally located and truly unique to Maui.

Amenities

From the Owner

We love that we can walk to great attractions, harbor excursions and restaurants and feel we have the most beautiful beach on Maui. The water in the bay is calm which is important to us since we love to swim and snorkel. Our completely remodeled condo is on the ground floor so you can walk on the lawn and out to the ocean and are not captive on an upper-floor lanai.
