Overview

About the property

Amazing Ocean and Harbor Views - close to everything

This is one of 4 corner units at Maalaea Yacht Marina, located on the second floor. Big windows wrap the corner so the view is stunning even from the kitchen. You can easily host dinner for six at the large lanai table and enjoy the spectacular sunset skies. Custom kitchen with beautiful cabinets is well equipped with all necessities. Large master bedroom with sliding glass door leading into the lanai offers a full view of the water. The comfy king-sized bed has upgraded linens and lots of closet space. Separate vanity with large, tiled walk-in shower gives the feeling you're in a home and not a cramped hotel room. Many upgrades throughout, including broadband and cable TV.

New queen size sofa sleeper in living room sleeps an additional person.

Maalaea is a great, central 'jumping-off' point to most points of interest on Maui. The airport is 15 minutes away, and you can reach Lahaina and the North Shore in a half hour. Kihei and Wailea are 20 minutes to the south, with 4 great golf courses located 5 miles or less.

Yes, there is wind in Maalaea, but you are sheltered on the lanai and can enjoy the views all day. We will gladly trade the traffic and congestion in the larger towns for the quiet residential feel in Maalaea.

There are four excellent restaurants within a short walk. The Maalaea General Store offers many wonderful convenience/grocery items and the Tradewinds deli is a great place to pick up sandwiches and chat with the friendly owners.

There is a small beach inside the breakwater, but you can walk to the end of Hau'oli Road to the four mile beach (it's about 1/2 mile and there is parking should you choose to drive). The beach is great for walking, swimming, and snorkeling (be sure to bring the snorkel gear, beach towels and boogie boards that are located in the closet!) But if you prefer, you can watch surfers challenging the Freight Train, a shore break wave known for it's speed and intensity, from your comfortable lanai seat.

Enjoy the many eating options at the Harbor Shops, including the famous Beach Bums, and the Seascape Restaurant. Also at that location are the Maui Ocean Center (consistently voted one of Maui's most popular attractions), Pacific Whale Foundation, Maui Dive Shop, ice cream and gourmet coffee. Carl's Junior is at the highway intersection, and there is miniature golf, rock climbing and bumper boats. If you want to go to Lahaina or Kihei, you can catch the Maui Bus at the sidewalk below the Ocean Center.

Owning an oceanfront condo has been a dream come true for us and we are thrilled with the idea of using it primarily as a vacation rental while visiting occasionally with our own family and friends. We treat the condo with love and make it a priority to always have it in the best possible condition.

We consider our guests as friends and truly want them to have a wonderful experience while on Maui. We have wonderful managers on the island who are available whenever you need them.

House Rules: Please turn off all air conditioning units when not in the unit. Maui strives to conserve energy and it will help us keep our rates competitive. Maalaea Yacht Marina is home to many full-time residents. Please respect quiet hours between 9pm and 8am on community property.

We require that least 1 adult be over the age of 25.

About Peter and Dorthi

We are recently retired and now have the time to enjoy the things we love -- traveling, photography and visiting friends and family. After visiting our kids on Maui for over 9 years, we had an opportunity to buy this condo, fulfilling a life-long dream. We are thrilled to be able to offer it to others to enjoy, but we're equally happy to occasionally use it with our friends and family.

Peter and Dorthi purchased this condo in 2013

Why Peter and Dorthi chose Maui

We fell in love with the condo as soon as we first saw it. The ocean views are amazing throughout the living area, kitchen and even from the master bedroom. The overall feeling we got was cozy, comfortable and relaxing.

What makes this condo unique

This is a rare corner unit with a wrap-around lanai that allows for interesting views of the ocean as well as the harbor and all its activities. It has the perfect balance of relaxation and excitement and you can have a wonderful time just lounging on the lanai. Beautiful sunrises and sunset skies are really breathtaking. The condo is walking distance to beaches, the harbor, restaurants, shops and all kinds of interesting places to explore.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The first thing you notice when you enter through the front door is the incredible view directly out toward Molokini (which is where you want to go for spectacular snorkeling). The unit is clean and well maintained, and air-conditioned throughout, although if you leave the front door and the lanai doors open, the trade winds will keep the unit comfortable and you might not have to use the A/C. (we only used the A/C at night in the bedrooms). There was more than enough space for my wife and I and my wife's parents (90 and 89 respectively). One bedroom has a king sized bed and another has two beds, so the unit is perfect for a group of four friends or a small family. The unit is just steps from the pier where several snorkeling or dive boats go out every day. There is a nice Deli next door with friendly owners, but if you want to do some serious grocery shopping, you can go to either Kihei and Lahaina (Kihei is closer). A drive to either comes with a lot of scenery. There is a small beach (very user friendly for small kekei- look it up) just a few steps away. There is also a pool, but who goes to Hawaii to use a pool? There is an elevator which makes it convenient to haul groceries or luggage, or for anyone with mobility problems. One final note: the owner Dorthi, is very helpful, and will respond quickly by e-mail should you have any questions. She also provided, in the unit, a lot of information about Maui activities. We definitely plan on going back as soon as possible.

Extremely beautiful

  • 5 of 5

This is a great location, right on the bay, you can see the mountains and the bay, wake up early sit on the lani, have a beverage of your choice & see turtles pop up out of the water, take a dinner cruise right there on the harbor, no driving involved.

The condo is beautiful and has everything you need. I would highly recommend this unit to anyone. Hopefully someday I will return.

Maui Condo in Maalaea

  • 5 of 5

From the start, the condo was amazing! It resides in Maalaea Harbor, which is conveniently located between the Kahului airport and the Kaánapali, Lahaina, and Kihei area. It is located on a secluded corner and very quiet. It overlooks the harbor with an unobstructed view of the Maui ocean. Slight breezes filled the condo nightly. The condo has been renovated with granite, tile, and carpet throughout. It has a very cozy feel and was spacious enough for two adults and two teenagers. New furniture and the blue/brown decor is inviting. The condo has everything you absolutely need, which is extremely helpful. The kitchen is well furnished with all major appliances, mixing bowls, coffee pot, blender, toaster, plates/bowls/glasses, and pots, pans, and utensils. They have a spice rack with oils and salts. There are two full bathrooms that offer tolietries. I was surprised to see other items such as sunscreen, lotion, and first aid kits. Bath and beach towels as well as snorkle gear was plentiful. I really did not need to bring anything other than my clothes and food. The lanai was the best part since it is much bigger than the standard balcony. Because it is located on a corner, the lanai wrapped around one side. I loved every inch of this condo and would definitely stay here when I come back to Maui.

A Diamond

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at many over the years and this Maalaea corner unit is a WINNER! In the past we've even been fooled by photo shopped pictures of the residence and misleading descriptions. None of that here. Can't say enough about the comforts, location, beauty and quiet of this place. Everything possible for anyone's enjoyment the owners have very thoughtfully provided.

Great Place to Stay on Maui

  • 5 of 5

I've been coming to Maui frequently for over twenty years. This is a wonderful condo, well stocked for ANYTHING you may possibly need on your vacation. The view is wonderful, the condo is meticulously cared for. The owner is very responsive, even emailing during our stay to make sure we were happy. I would whole-heartedly recommend this condo for your stay on island. You can't go wrong, hopefully someday I will be lucky enough to stay there again.

BEST Equiped Condo Ever!

  • 5 of 5

The owners have thought of everything! I honestly can't think of anything they didn't have! (And I'm pretty picky)! The condo was better supplied than our own home! Excellent convenient location!

Maalaea Dream Rental

  • 5 of 5

Morning coffee and watching the sunrise over Haleakala never fails to entertain and is one of the many reasons we look forward to our next trip to Maalaea Yacht Harbor Unit 210. The corner- unit lanai easily accommodates six or more people comfortably and is unusually large.

This two bedroom, two bathroom unit is comfy and cosy and is only a few steps from the water's edge. This ocean- front condo provides the guest with an action-packed harbor view with Coast Guard boats, tour boats, pleasure and fishing boats. The harbor sealife includes sea turtles, mantas and dozens of jumping fish.

The condo is spotlessly clean and fully stocked with cooking utensils, stain-free linens, books, DVDs, boogie boards and snorkel sets. The bbq is spotless and near the swimming pool. Assigned parking is convenient to the elevator.

The condo is great. To make it even better, the owners, Dorthi and Peter, are delightful.

We look forward to returning on our next visit to Maui.
