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 7 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. The first half of 2018 has booked very quickly, so plan your 2018/2019 Fall and Winter getaway early! Family or friends wanting to join you? We can help you obtain another groundfloor or upper floor newly remodeled unit - just drop us an email. Come leave your footprints in the sand! Mahalo! Allan & Caroline Friesen

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 Wailuku

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'.

Amazing, Beautiful, Conveniently Located Condo!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was everything we hoped for and more. Conveniently located right next to Maalaea Harbor for a snorkeling trip (Trilogy was awesome!), and a short drive to the Maui hotspots (Laihana, Wailea, Kahului, etc.). The condo was spotless when we arrived and had everything we needed to relax in paradise. The patio was great for watching sunrises and sunsets and the walk behind the property along the water was great for turtle spotting. Not sure how you can beat the quality and price of this condo… Will definitely come back in the future, for sure.

Also, the owner is thoughtful enough to include very detailed vacation recommendations and instructions for the condo such that there is hardly a question left unanswered. Makes you feel that their priority is you enjoying your stay. Great job!

oustanding little place & spot on Maui

  • 5 of 5

This is just an awesome little condo -- immaculately clean and so well appointed, clearly with care and love. The location is really great too. The loooong beach walk east of the harbour is the best on the island, and Ma'alaea Harbour is quiet and has lots to do -- the aquarium, the shops, breakfast at the general store, and Beach Bums happy hour can't be beat! All the Molokini snorkel adventures leave right from here too, as well as many dinner cruises. Quick zip here from the airport, and the public buses into Kihei and to Lahiana ($2) make it well positioned without a car even (we didn't have one). But again the condo itself is great - beautiful pool, excellent bbqs, and the inside is clearly a home first rather than a rental - makes for a great vibe for the stay. One thing -- be prepared for a bit of gusty wind, as Ma'aleae is a quite windy bay/harbour. Didn't bother us but worth noting.

Best location on Maui

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying in this area for years now and really think it is the best of all worlds for Maui. Centrally located, right on the ocean, and a quiet retreat from busier parts of the island. Great location for watching the whales right from your lanai. This year I saw a whale give birth while I watched from the condo using binoculars! This place has everything you need for seeing Maui at its best. Great owners who are easy to work with and a wonderful warm pool. Its our "happy place."
