DIRECT OCEANFRONT! QUIET, PRIVATE, ROMANTIC & CENTRAL TO EVERYTHING MAUI!

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday condo in Maalaea - Maui Beachfront Home

Direct oceanfront sleeps 4 with unobstructed forever views!

On The Beach Living!

(If we are booked for the dates you want, be sure to check out our other direct oceanfront at same price VRBO # 574508 )

This unique ground level condominium with a private lanai is only steps to the water's edge and is perfect for watching whales, surfers, windsurfers or the world famous surf rolling across Maalaea Bay. Wake up to panoramic views of Maui’s south shore, Mt. Haleakala, as well as Molokini and Kahoolawe islands. The spectacular sunrises over Mt. Haleakala and brilliant skies at sunset are only two of the special moments that will make your vacation a wonderful and lasting memory.

I grew up in Hawaii and have lived on Maui for over twenty years. We could have bought anywhere on Maui but wanted only this building. We waited years for a direct oceanfront ground floor unit where we could easily step out to the beach any time of day or night. This was one of only three homes in the building that had all the elements we hoped for. Located in one of the smaller complexes on the island, it's location at Maalaea, mean it's far less busy, quieter and more private than other like properties anywhere else on Maui. The bonus is that Maalaea is central to everything - it is absolutely the best kept secret on Maui!

Within walking distance from your front door:

- Maalaea Harbor where you can book any of the many ocean activities available on Maui including whale watching, snorkeling adventure and sunset dinner cruises

- A number of fine restaurants including Buzz's Wharf, Beach Bums Bar and Grill and The Waterfront.

- There are also a couple of stores with most grocery needs as well as delis and fast food options.

- Maui Ocean Center aquarium (voted best attraction on Maui)

- Maui Golf & Sports Park is perfect for family fun

- Haycraft Park and Sugar Beach, one of the most pristine, white sandy beaches on Maui, it stretches five miles all the way to Kihei

- The Shops at Maalaea offers a variety of shopping and snacking options

- Great snorkeling and surfing is right off your lanai!

Public Transportation: Most parts of the island can be reached from Maalaea via Maui bus services for only $2 per route.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Can't get any closer to the ocean and not get wet! Loved waking up to the sound of the surf. Great central location. Not far to Lahaina, the farmer's market in Kahului, I'ao Valley (a "must see"--spectacular!). Saw so many turtles in the water and on the beach, and the mama and baby whales in early March were really a treat to see. Be sure to have a meal or two at Coconuts in Kihei--looks like just a fast food place, but SO DELICIOUS!!!. The condo is within walking distance from the Maui Ocean Center, not to mention Beach Bums for Sunday brunch, or Country Market for lunch. If you are into birds, try Kealia Pond NWR--added a few to my Life List.

We take pride in keeping the property clean and up-to-date. And unlike absentee owners, because we live on island, we have a unique opportunity to tune it up regularly! It's very important to us that our guests have a positive and memorable experience so they return and share our property with their friends. Warmest Aloha, Jim & Victoria

Very Nice, Central Location in Mau!

  • 4 out of 5
My husband and I stayed here the first half of our honeymoon and were very comfortable. We enjoyed the central/south Maui location and going into Kihei and Wailea for nice dinners and cooking at "home." Highlights of the condo were the lanai and the semi-private beach (with visiting turtles!). Very affordable for the island. Parking was easy.

Great location, nice condo

  • 5 out of 5
This condo is very comfortable. It is very well equipped with everything you need and is in a very convenient location. The view out front is awesome. We even saw several turtles popping their heads up right in front of the condo! We definitely recommend this place and would return in a heartbeat.

Incredible view and value

  • 5 out of 5
We loved the view! Just steps to edge of lawn and the ocean was right there! The turtles often feed on the rocks later in the afternoon. The area was quiet. We mostly met people who live there, so we were very glad there were not big noisy parties, no smoking, just totally relaxing. We purchased fresh fish and grilled that with veggies. Along with macadamia nuts, those were the best dinners! The bed is super-comfortable, high quality mattress. Opening the windows in bedroom plus by the slider door allowed the breeze to come through, keeping us comfortable. If we needed more breeze, we could open the door as well. We loved hearing the ocean 24/7. Furnishings were comfortable, everything that's needed was there, including some beach chairs and towels to take for excursions.

Recommendations:
We went on the 6:30am 2-hour snorkel trip with Kai Kanani, that was FABULOUS! Certainly a highlight. A shorter trip, less expensive, leaves from Makena beach so you are the first boat to the Molokini crater and you have it all to yourselves before hundreds of snorkelers show up. They also took us to Turtle Town, where finding turtles to swim with is no problems. Fabulous staff, so helpful to first-time snorkelers as well as experienced folks.
We had breakfast up north at the Gazebo, also recommended but get there either early (7:00am before they open) or later (10:30am) or you'll be in line for an hour. Then, go snorkel at Napili beach right next door. Worth the drive - completely protected, easy to snorkel in, saw plenty of little fish, and there is a good section of shade right on the beach for people who need that.
Recommended in Kihei for dinner: 808 Cafe, call for a reservation, less expensive but you feel like you're in a more expensive restaurant.
Best place to buy fresh fish for the grill: It's worth the drive to Kahului's Foodland. Much bigger selection that the Kihei's Foodland, and in quantities that work for 2 people. Especially try ono - it's a white fish that flakes and grills like salmon - fabulous! I wish there was a 10-star rating available. This wonderful condo, within easy drive of the entire west coast of Maui, is a gem.

Maui Getaway

This is a wonderful place to stay. Found everything as advertised. Close to everything but peaceful and quiet with 3.5 miles of uncrowded beach. I will definitely recommend this property to all of my friends in Phoenix Arizona.

Just like the pictures

  • 5 out of 5
Highly recommended! My husband and I had a wonderful time on our honeymoon. The very first morning while we were having breakfast on the back porch we watched a pod of whales swim around the cove! Each morning we also had a beautiful view of the sunrise over Mt Haleakala. Great central location, short drive to the Kahului airport (10 minutes through the beautiful countryside), Lahaina (25 minutes-depending on how many times you stop!), Kihei (nearest Safeway), etc... There are plentiful shops, restaurants, a gas station/convenient store, and an aquarium within walking distance (about 1/4 mile). There's also a park with beach access less than 1/4 mile down the same road in the opposite direction where we went snorkeling (gear for rent at shop near aquarium, $9 per day per person). We didn't consider alternative transportation or taxis, but it worked out great with a rental car, and there is a parking space provided at no additional charge. The staff person in the office was friendly in getting the parking pass, and the property management company was helpful and easy to get ahold of at the telephone provided. They gave us our door code exactly at check-in time, and even allowed us late checkout. It was very convenient having the washer/dryer in the condo, and the sofa bed was a good back up when my husband misbehaved. Just kidding!

Mahalo!
