About the property

2 bedrooms, 2 full baths - Honeymoon Oceanfront Master Suite - sleeps 6 -

I am traveling with limited internet connection from Friday 5/12 until Monday 5/29. Please be patient because it may take a few days for you to get a response. This condo has what you come to Maui for. Twenty feet from the water. 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). And maybe 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

The kitchen has everything from a blender to a coffee maker. We just added high speed DSL with a wireless router so you can even use your laptop on the beach. I actually 'work' from here.

Kanai a Nalu is the best (no ka 'oi)

  • 5 of 5

I hardly know where to begin. In every aspect, this place is perfect. The location is great – directly overlooking a magnificent beach just 20 feet from our lanai, on a quiet dead-end road, and within easy reach of all the places you want to see and explore. Walking the beach and watching all the honu (turtles) was an every morning treat. The 4th floor corner location provided quiet and privacy. Furnishings were lovely, the beds comfy, the kitchen had everything we could possibly need and there were loads of things for the beach (towels, boogie boards, etc.). Falling asleep to the sound of the waves was the best. Although there was air conditioning available, we definitely did not need it; we just kept the front door open to provide a wonderful cross-breeze. The condo grounds were very well kept, the pool was pristine and the guests and owners we met were all so friendly. Dealing with the owner of this unit was a pleasure. (Thanks, Mike, for your patience with all my before-trip questions!) What can I say? Everything was fantastic! We look forward to planning another trip to Kanai a Nalu and this lovely condo.

Well-equipped top floor corner condo right over the ocean!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful two-week stay. The lanai is so close to the water that you can see the sea turtles swimming close to shore. There is no beach right in front of the property, and the ocean crashes against a retaining wall at high tide. We loved the sound, day and night. The condo property is very well maintained. The owner is easy to work with. The condo gets a lovely cross-breeze, so it's never really too warm. (We were there in April, 2017). Located in the center of the western coast, it's easy to drive to anywhere, but many people lounge on the lanai or at the water's edge and don't seem to feel the need to go anywhere!

Lovely unit! Pleasantly surprised!

  • 5 of 5

This unit has all you will need for your vacation. Mike was excellent to work with when making our reservation, and great communication with us to make sure the unit would be ready for us upon arrival. We watched turtles every day from the lanai, and walked to the beach right next door to this condo. We had record-setting temps for March Maui weather, and the A/C was definitely needed and worked well, cooling the entire condo quickly. The weather in late March produced very little trade winds and no clouds, so we had a great view of Haleakala every morning, and watched whales in the bay and toward Molokini nearly every day. The Maalaea condos are older than other areas in Maui, but this unit is updated, clean, and much 'homier' than other even newer places where we've stayed. We will definitely check this place for availability for future visits to Maui.

Nice view

  • 3 of 5

Great view. Centrally located. Cold pool. No hot tub to warm up. Lots of art on the inside but some not appropriate for Maui (picture of Diamond Head, for instance). Too much stuff that didn't need to be there i.e. not as much room for our stuff. Guest room closet so crammed with stuff there was barely room to hang things. Didn't need them but had expected to find sand toys and boogie board(s). Lanai has two tall chairs at a tall table and a lower chair or two at a lower table. There were three of us so somebody always felt like a second-class citizen. I'd stay here again but after the glowing reviews, I guess I was disappointed. Great view of Haleakala. Saw few whales but lots of turtles.

Owner's Response: Lynn, You are the first review in we have had in 12 years with just 3 stars and I am sorry some things did not meet your expectations. Guests have actually never mentioned the things you brought up. Much of our art is original and all island related. The vintage Waikiki poster is there because the main subject of the picture is surfing and outrigger canoes. You may be right about not much room in the "guest" closet. I noticed that people put all six of our Tommy Bahama beach chairs in there along with the two futons for extra people. We replaced the futons with deluxe inflatable beds that take up just a little shelf space and moved the chairs. You also mentioned boogie boards and sand play things. There are usually two boogie boards in the closet but they do "disappear" or fall apart. We generally replace them when we are on Maui. The pool is solar heated and no one has ever mentioned the temperature or certainly not the wish for a hot tub. No condo in Maalaea has a hot tub that I am aware of and not too many have a pool 40 feet from the water's edge. As for the lanai seating many units in our condo complex have just two chairs. We added the two tall teak swivel chairs and table to take advantage of the ocean view without having to look through the railing. We are the only unit that has them and they are our favorite place to sit any time of day. There are two other chairs and a table on the lanai but, you are right, some people will have the lower chairs - not sure how we could arrange it any other way. The virtual tour shows things just as they are so, again, I am sorry that some things did not meet your expectations.

This condo was perfect! It was everything they described and more. The property was clean and well maintained. The property management staff was very friendly and helpful. Just a few steps from the beach, the view from the condo was stunning. Although it is in a large complex, it was very quiet. It had everything we needed. We were close to everything: Costco, downtown, great restaurants, and plenty of beaches (although you really don't need to go anywhere else!). You absolutely must see Warren and Annabelle show. Da Kitchen (across from Costco) has amazing food! One suggestion for the condo: If you want the 2nd bedroom to be a king size bed, make sure to ask for the beds to be moved before you get there! Lovely home. Can't wait to go back!
