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. You might even see the resident Monk Seal (named Humpy) or the two eagle rays (named Spot and Ray).
Enjoy the famous Beach Bums, Saltimbocca and the Seascape Restaurant. Also at the village shops are the Maui Ocean Center (voted Maui's most popular attraction), Pacific Whale Foundation, Maui Dive Shop, ice cream and gourmet coffee. Carl's Junior is at the highway intersection, and there id miniature golf, rock climbing and bumper boats. You can catch the Maui Bus at the sidewalk below the Ocean Center if you'd rather not drive to Lahaina or Kihei.
We purchased the condo in December 2013. Previous owner rented out this unit through vrbo for several years with many positive reviews.
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.
We require that least 1 adult be over the age of 25.

About the Owner
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'll equally happy to occasionally use it with our own friends and family.
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.

Fantastic Condo & Location
First, the owners were delightful and went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and that there were no issues. It's so nice to have that kind of 'follow-up'. We were sent very detailed emails on how to find the condo when leaving the airport, where to park on arrival etc. Even recommendations on where to eat and the many fun things to do on Maui. Dorthi even leaves a Safeway card in the condo and on our first visit to the store in Kihei we saved $25, so Mahalo for that! You can't beat the location of this condo...close to everything. Oh, and the view! Can't be beat! You are right on the ocean and lovely to hear those waves as you go to sleep at night. So relaxing to sit on the lanai and watch the harbor boats come and go....and if you're lucky you'll see the sea turtles swimming in the bay. The condo has everything you need, especially a well stocked kitchen. The beds were comfortable and it was nice to have the lazy-boy type chairs for putting your feet up after a long day of 'touristing'. Oh, and did I mention the boogie boards and snorkeling equipment available for use in the condo? Yep, and chairs and food coolers! Like I said, everything you could possibly need. We can't wait to go back! Thanks Dorthi and Peter....you made our 49th anniversary very special!
We have just returned from our stay in this beautiful condo. I have absolutely no hesitation in saying that it is the best equipped unit I have ever rented. The owners were wonderful to deal with and sent us much info prior to our leaving home. We had all our meals on the lovely wrap around lanai and enjoyed watching all the activity that was going on in the harbour. We all would highly recommend this unit for its central location, being on the ocean with the harbour activities and the ease in dealing with the very thoughtful owners. It was a special birthday for me and they even had a card and flowers waiting on my arrival. Well done Dorthi and Peter and thank you again.
Great Location for Visiting All of Maui
We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Maalaea and Peter and Dorthi's condo. We especially enjoyed watching the harbor activity each morning, and since we toured some corner of the Island nearly every day we really appreciated the central location. The condo had everything we needed for meal prep in the way of utensils and condiments, and we made continuous use of the cooler and ice maker for our various excursions. Everything was just as pictured/advertised--thanks for a great experience.
We had an absolutely wonderful time in Peter and Dorthi's condo. Since we were staying with family members, we had the back bedroom which had a really comfy bed! And the air conditioner and fan were fantastic!! No view from that room, but who needs it when you've got that beautiful ocean view right off the lanai. We enjoyed having our meals on the lanai, watching fish fly out of the water, and turtles popping their heads up. Loved the convenient location, walked to the harbor stores, Maui Ocean Center, and had a great breakfast at the General Store. Went to different towns and beaches each day and used the towels, chairs, cooler, snorkel gear, etc -- everything we could possibly need was provided. Even the snorkeling gear was in various sizes!! What a bargain for staying in Paradise!!! We can't wait to return again and again and again.....
This condo had everything we needed and more. It is a corner unit which allowed for a wide angle view of both the harbor and the ocean. There are great places closely for shopping and eating... And the Maui Ocean Center is just 1 block away! Conveniently located on Maui between Lahaina and Kihei. The condo reasonably priced and was very comfy, clean and well stocked with snorkel gear, chairs, a cooler, all the kitchen gadgets you'll ever need... A/C in all rooms. The owners were available for any questions and info about the unit. Will definitely be back!
My husband and I prefer staying off the beaten track when we go to popular tourist locations, so this home away from home was ideal for us. The location is on the coast, yet central to the island, so we could easily choose from day to day which direction we wanted to explore.
Besides the fabulous view and well maintained property, I was particularly impressed with how thoroughly the owners anticipated the needs of renters. We have stayed at many time share trades and VRBO properties over the years, and this ranks among the best. Dorthi and Peter were easy to communicate with; friendly and helpful. Wonderful vacation!

From the Owner
“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.”
