Overview

About the property

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

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

About Mike Watson

Retired and travelling.

Mike Watson purchased this condo in 1989

Why Mike Watson chose Maalaea

We looked all over the island and chose Maalaea because of its central location, quiet untouristy neighborhood, miles long beach, beautiful views, surfable waves right out front, whale views from our lanai, etc., etc.

What makes this condo unique

Not only are we ocean front (about wo feet from the water) but because we are on the fourth floor and a CORNER unit we have beautiful views and privacy from both bedrooms. The corner placement means that the master bedroom has two walls of windows.

The second bedroom has two comfortable twin beds which can be put together into a queen size bed and also an ocean view. Both bedrooms have their own bathroom so it also makes the condo ideal for two couples or a family. One thing I particularly like about my condo as compared to most others in Kanai a Nalu, and in Maalaea for that matter, is the complete privacy of the bedrooms. No one can look in but you have fantastic views and never need to cover the window

Notes:
The entire condo has been recently remodeled with special care taken in the kitchen. Our kitchen has been updated with Corian countertops, beautiful dark wood cabinets, recessed lighting, and stainless steel appliances including a side by side refrigerator with filtered water and ice in the door. 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. With my cell phone and DSL I can be at the 'office' while sitting on my lanai and watching the surfers or whales (in season). The new 30 inch HD television has a built in DVD player. Oh, yes, we also have a gazillion cable stations. There are beach chairs and at least two coolers to take on your picnics or island adventure. We just added a 37' flat screen in the bedroom with a blue ray DVD player that can wirelessly access your Netflix account.

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.

Great condo. Great location. Sleeping with the windows open to the sound of the surf was awesome!

  • 5 of 5

Enjoying the sea breeze. Listening to the surf. Watching sea turtles from the balcony. All contributed to an amazing vacation. The use of the beach towels, beach chairs, umbrella, boogie board and cooler were appreciated.

Great central location with great view and beach

  • 5 of 5

Traveling to anywhere on the island from this location was great. Looking out over the ocean, watching turtles come in at high tide and sleeping to the sound of the waves are our favorite parts of this condo.

This condo is in a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We Loved staying here. The view from lanai was amazing, watching turtles everyday in the surf. The beach is so convenient and perfect for morning sunrise walks! To my surprise, the snorkeling was probably the best I've experienced in Maui right off the beach next too the seawall! The condo itself was very comfortable for 4 of us and just as pictured. I will totally stay here again. Mahalo for your condo Mike! I'll be back!

Amazing condo

We loved every minute of our stay here in March. The owner was very easy to deal with and the condo had all the amenities we were looking for. My only regret is that it is not available next February! Thanks Mike!

You know Maui but do you know Maalaea? Maalaea is a small non touristy ocean front village - the most central location on Maui for very easy access to all that our island has to offer. It is the best 'home base' to explore Maui from then come back to relax in our heated pool, on the uncrowded beach or in the shade under our oceanfront trees while your dinner grills on the barbecue. We are on a four mile beach - the longest in the islands. Maalaea Harbor down the street is home to the Maui Ocean Center - a world class aquarium, great restaurants and shops, ocean activities such as whale watching, snorkel cruises, deep sea fishing, or sunset dinner cruises. You can surf right out in front of condo (very rare in Hawaii). There is a world class wave known as the Maalaea Freight Train just down the beach and two very easy and fun waves exactly in front of Kanai a Nalu. People also enjoy snorkeling, beachcombing, surf fishing, or birdwatching. It is a safe beach for children. There is often

surfing right out front of the condo.
