About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom , 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2 Very Comfortably

ALOHA! Welcome to our home in Maui! Our newly renovated, one bedroom, fully furnished, ground floor OCEANFRONT condominium - literally a stones throw to the water at the Maalaea Yacht Marina located in the most perfect central location on the Island of Maui. This is the IDEAL place for a couple to escape to paradise! This condo has the WOW factor from the moment that you walk through the entry door. We furnished the condo as our 'home away from home' and left nothing out for our special guests to wish for. The plantation shuttered 'all glass' front allows you easy access to your lanai where you will relax in comfort. The lanai is perfect for viewing excursion boats leaving the harbor, surfers riding the famous 'Freight Train' waves (best in the summer months) and last but not least during the winter months you will have fantastic views of the humpback WHALES without taking a charter to view them. Maalaea Bay is a whale sanctuary and you need not go no further than our private lanai to have exceptional viewings of the whales during 'whale season'.

Every piece of furniture was purchased with 'comfort' in mind from the Tommy Bahama style sleeper sofa and lounge chairs to the California King Serta Sleeper bed. The tiled bathroom is located 'en suite' in the master bedroom and not out in the hallway. This is the perfect bathroom location for a couple but may not be ideal for 4 adults. The designer kitchen is furnished with all stainless steel appliances, travertine counter tops and a rare Italian cherry wood center island from the Versace Store in Whalers Village. We have a Sony 46' and a Samsung 32' Flat Screen TV in the condo, DVD/CD Player, Free U.S. and Canada Telephone Calls, Wireless Internet (bring your own laptop), heated swimming pool and new stainless steel gas barbecues out by the pool.

We are just a 5 minute walk to Maui's famous 5 mile scenic Sugar Beach! We have a small sandy beach out front of our building that is perfect for small children or to just put your feet in the ocean. We are walking distance to Kealia Nature Preserve, several restaurants, miniature golf, many fishing, snorkeling and tour boats and the Maui Ocean Center. This quiet central location is Maui's 'best kept secret'. Maalaea Yacht Marina has 46 units and your parking spot is reserved for our unit, no aimless driving late at night hoping to find parking and NO extra charge for parking or "services" like the resorts charge. Why would you ever pay double the price for a garden view unit in another location on Maui when you can stay a 'stones throw' from the water in a luxury ground floor oceanfront unit at Maalaea Harbor? This quiet central location offers easy access to all of Maui's famous beaches, the road to Hana, Haleakala, Kihei, Lahaina, Kaanapali, Kahului and is only a 15 minute drive to the airport.

Take a peak at our calendar - we have special dates 'reserved' just for you! If you need more photos, just send us an email, we took many after the remodel, so we have plenty to share. If you are looking for an exceptionally nice oceanfront condo for your well deserved vacation to paradise, please contact us. 2016 Booked Full Very Quickly, so plan your 2017/2018 getaway early! Family or friends wanting to join you? We can help you obtain another brand new groundfloor or upper floor remodeled unit - just drop us an email. Come leave your footprints in the sand! Mahalo!

About Caroline Friesen

Allan is retired from 45 years in the field of Criminal Justice. I am still active here in Idaho as a personal property appraiser. We have 2 sons and 1 daughter and 8 grand children. We love all water activities especially boating in the San Juan Islands and fishing for steelhead in Idaho in the winter. We love Maui and are so very happy to call this our second home.

Caroline Friesen purchased this condo in 2011

Why Caroline Friesen chose Maui

Central location to all activities on Maui, boating, swimming, surfing, beaches, restaurants, shopping, very quiet condo building and just wonderful oceanfront property. The views from our property are great!

What makes this condo unique

So close to the water! Wonderful panoramic views from our oceanfront lanai - watch the tour boats, surfers, wind surfers, kayaks, whales, Molokini, Kihei and Haleakala. When we get tired of just 'watching', we grab our suits and head to the pool or ocean for a swim or our new favorite thing to do 'paddle boarding'.

Beautiful condo!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had such a great time having our birthdays and honeymoon at this condo! It's a beautiful place with gorgeous views of the ocean. The location is great too, as it's in a quiet area but a short drive from Kihei and other cities. Thank you Caroline and Allan for your wonderful hospitality and making us feel at home and welcome!

Cozy, clean, close to a beautiful beach

  • 4 of 5

This condo offered a cozy retreat after a long day of exploring the island. As first-time visitors to Maui, we spent a lot of time on-the-go. It was the perfect place to recharge and refuel, and we spent the early morning hours sipping coffee on the lanai and taking advantage of the beautiful ocean view. The condo felt quiet and exclusive, while being barely 20 minutes from Kihei, the airport, and the Iao Valley Park.

One note for future guests: The condo backs up right next to the pool, so expect the noise associated with a busy pool area.

The owner was very friendly and responsive to questions via text or email. Overall a great intro to Maui!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for being such great guests - you are welcome back any time. Normally the pool area is very quiet - almost to the point of seeming like your own private pool - July guests for the condo building included many guests with children - I do apologize if there was noise from the occupants of the swimming pool for your stay.

Best vacation in years!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Maui so we really had no idea what to expect. We were very happy with the condo location to things we wanted to do. The condo was exactly as Caroline described. Had all the necessities we needed to cook meals. It is close to shops and our favorite nearby restaurant/bar Beach Bums. We enjoyed sitting out on the small beach in the evenings watching the crabs come out of their holes and interact with each other and looking for the large turtles who are there nightly. It was nice that they have boogie boards and all the beach necessities to use which saved us from having to purchase these items. We definitely hope to stay again one day. We highly recommend Flying Hawaiian zip lining which is about 10 minute drive from condo and the Trilogy tour to Lanai recommended by Caroline. We had a great time on both. Thanks for sharing your condo in paradise.

The best Condo on Maui!

  • 5 of 5

My second stay, just as awesome and relaxing as the last visit. Great location between Lahaina and Kihea.

Salt water pool, seems as if you have the beach to yourself. This time I enjoyed the sea turtle family coming in to feed in the late afternoon.

These owners have a great Condo, do not miss out if you get the opportunity to stay.

I will return again. Thanks to such great Owner's.

Maui wowey!

  • 4 of 5

A beautiful location and comfortable condo to enjoy our vacation. An easy walk to the local beach and close to the highway for touring around the island. The unit we rented had all the amenities we needed for our stay including a great view of the ocean from the screened in lanai. Should we return to Maui again it will be the first place we contact for accommodations.
