Shut Up And Take My Money!
The first, and only, time we had been to Maui prior to this trip was in September of 2001, right after 9 / 11. The island was almost empty of tourists and it seemed that we had Maui almost all to ourselves. During that first visit, we stayed at Lee and Barbara's wonderful condo and it was fantastic. When we returned for this trip, we decided to stay in this same condo unit again.
I must say that during this trip the island was quite busy when compared to our previous visit. However, the condo and its surrounding area was just as quiet as it was during our 2001 stay. What a great and relaxing location this is. It can be windy in the Malaga Bay area but, unlike most beachfront locations, the wind doesn't come off of the ocean, it generally comes from the land side. This allowed us to keep the condo cool without having to use the air conditioning and also enjoy the grounds, pool and the beach which were nicely protected from the wind. Although it was windy during our stay, the wind was never an issue for us. It is great having a swimmable beach right out your front door as well as having a long, beautiful white sandy beach for walking. Most days we did not even leave the area because all of the outdoor beach / water activities we wanted were readily available to us. In addition, the view from the lanai is spectacular.
We planned this trip with some dear friends from Southern California and they also stayed in the same condo facility. We were both in top floor, beachfront, outside corner units which are probably, as far as location goes, the best two condos in the complex. Both were outfitted nicely and provide great privacy. The main difference is the cost. This unit was a far better value than the Unit our friends stayed in. This condo is a great bargain - Not just when comparing it with other units in the complex, but even to other comparable condos on the island. The owners are terrific to work with and very responsive to questions and inquiries.
We are now planning a return visit to this condo and this time it will hopefully be within 14 months rather than 14 years.
We were a family of 5 with 3 -20 something kids. This condo was in a great location, far enough off the beaten track so it is quiet and still within walking distance to a few shops/eats. Really nice layout for a family and the view is fantastic! Endless walks on the beach right in front of the condo and really liked that the area was private. Would recommend it to anyone! The owners are great to work with as well!
Best Location in the Entire Building!
We've stayed at Kana'i A Nalu several times (we visit Maui every April) and have enjoyed staying in different units. However, this one has THE VERY BEST VIEW, PRIVACY, and NOISE LEVEL out of ALL of them! It's a top floor, ocean front (absolutely nothing but a beachfront view out of the window) and at the corner of the building AWAY from the pool- which means totally quiet except for the crashing waves! It has ever amenity that you could want- beach chairs, boogie boards, sand toys, etc. Also- I really appreciated that the owners leave leftover (shelf stable) food items from previous tenants (olive oil, vinegar, condiments, rice, flour, sugar, etc.) Every other condo that we've stayed at in this building DOES NOT do this. It was a huge help to have these food items handy. We traveled with our baby and rented all baby items from http://www.akamaimothers.com/ . They deliver & pick-up the baby items! Our pack-n-play, booster seat and beach cabana were waiting at the front door upon our arrival!
A Wonderful Stay!
Our family of four just returned from a fabulous trip to Hawaii which culminated in Maui. We stayed in this lovely beach front condo. This was our first time using VRBO, so we didn't know what to expect. However, as we walked through the front door, we realized that we had made an excellent choice. The entire condo was beautifully decorated, spacious and very clean. Many of the appliances were new. It’s centrally located which made our drive to see the sunrise on Haleakala that much quicker. The views from the lanai are stunning. One morning we watched a family of whales frolicking in the bay. You are right on the beach with no traffic noise; just the sound of waves. This corner unit provided everything we were looking for in a condo. Barbara was great to deal with and responded promptly to all of our emails. Thanks for sharing your condo with us!
This is THE place to stay on Maui!
My husband and I agree that this is surely one of the best designed condos we've seen. Add to that the absolutely stunning view which reaches from Makena Beach all the way around to the lighthouse, on the other side of the vast Maalaea Bay. Since it's an end unit on the top floor, the master has side windows which expand the view (and cross breezes) significantly. The decor is beautifully tropical in feeling, without being Hawaiian Kitche. There are a number of lovely sculpted pieces...metal, wood, pottery, ceramic and glass, as well as strategically placed mirrors that definitely bring the "outside in". But WHAT an outside!!! The ocean RIGHT THERE! I've never seen a condo built so close to the Ocean. I marvel at the amount of Oceanographic and Geographic research the architects must have done prior to building. And perhaps the most exceptional part is that even with the openness, the amount of total privacy is astonishing. With a top floor unit in only a 4 story condo...you can see the palm trees swaying (take THAT you Kaanapali multi-stories!), and the few units to the other side sit further back from the beach and have almost no windows facing this direction. The condo, which was built, I believe, in the 80's has been totally updated with brand new stove/oven, microwave, french door refrigerator with icemaker, and a high-efficiency washer & dryer. Cable TV n both the LR & MBR. Everything you need is here, including a complete revolving spice rack. You can walk the beach almost to Makena,..or at least to Kihei (depending upon your level of fitness)! There is an elevator that you can use to bring up luggage & groceries..so even for us mid-'70's folks, the unit is easily accessible. There are boogie boards & fins in the closet, easy access to several restaurants in the area...and even the drive into Kahului or Kihei is only 10 minutes or so. My husband and I lived on Oahu for almost 20 years, and have been to Maui many times, but this is our first stay in this area. For us, this is the PLACE!
From the Owner
“We looked at several locations throughout Maui, and chose Maalaea because it is centrally located, has spectacular views, and has miles of sandy beach for walking, snorkeling, surfing, boogie boarding, and swimming.”
Activity and Interests
Condo sits on one street of condos with restaurants, shops, Aquarium, just a walk down the street from the complex. We are about 6 miles from the Kahului airport and between 17-19 miles from Kaanapali Beach. Our condo is directly facing the Ocean with an awesome view! Sit on the lanai and you could throw a rock and hit the ocean!
