For whale watching there is not a better location. You are just a stones through from the edge of Ma'alaea Bay where the whales, dolphins and sea turtles all visit.

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 Ma'alaea 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.

* Our calendar is always up-to-date. So if it shows your dates available then you can proceed to book with confidence. If for some reason our place is booked then VRBO will not allow the booking to go through.

*If the dates you want are booked check out one of our other direct oceanfront properties - see VRBO #623055 (located in this complex) or VRBO # 574508 & VRBO # 631819.

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 one of the perfect direct oceanfront units where we could easily step out to the beach any time of day or night. This was one of only six 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 Ma'alaea, means it's far less busy, quieter and more private than other like properties anywhere else on Maui. The bonus is that Ma'alaea is central to everything - it is absolutely the best kept secret on Maui!

Within walking distance from your front door:

- Ma'alaea 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 Ma'alaea 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 Ma'alaea via Maui bus services for only $2 per route.

About Jim and Victoria

I (Jim) grew up on the Big Island (Hawaii) and has lived on Maui for about 25 years. Victoria grew up in Santa Cruz, California and has also lived on Maui for about 25 years. We have owned and operated rental properties here in Hawaii for about 35 years so we know how to do it right. We take pride in the quality of our properties and the personal service we give. We feel blessed and lucky to be a small part of some very memorable experiences for our visitors. Besides always upgrading the property we have hired a full time management company to assure our guests can always reach someone if they have a need.

Why Jim and Victoria chose Maui

Ma'alaea is central to everything and has some of the most pristine and barely used beaches - it is absolutely the best kept secret on Maui!

Having lived on Maui for roughly 25 years we could have bought anywhere on the island. But after looking at every direct oceanfront building, we had interest in only a couple and chose this one for it's location. We waited years for one of the perfect direct oceanfront units to become available, where we could enjoy the expansive ocean and outer island views throughout our home and step out to the beach any time of day or night. This was one of only six 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 Ma'alaea mean it's far less busy, quieter and more private than other like properties anywhere else on Maui. Our guests love it as much as we do and return year after year.

What makes this condo unique

This property is one of the most quiet, private and romantic locations on the island. 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. In addition we employ a management company to assure our guests that someone will be available at all times should there be a need. Warmest Aloha, Jim & Victoria

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.

Property is in an ideal location

  • 5 of 5

The condo is well maintained and faces the ocean. The view is like a postcard of Hawaii. The grounds are immaculate and you are only a few minutes walking distance from a beautiful 5 mile long secluded beach. There are some shops and restaurants within walking distance at the harbor. A must see aquarium is also within walking distance. Safeway in Kihei is a 10 minute drive. Maalaea was a perfect starting point for our trips to Hana, Lahaina and Haleakala. All in all we had a great and relaxing time.

Owner's Response: Aloha Jim and Maria. We always love when guests choose to stay our one of our places from a neighbor island and more importantly love it. Very happy you chose to walk to the Maui Ocean Center Aquarium and local restaurants. Well worth the visit. The "beautiful 5 mile long secluded beach" and the central location to all of Maui, as you discovered, are two of the reasons we chose this place. We're delighted you had such a wonderful and relaxing time. Ewa Beach, Oahu is just a short flight away so we hope to see you back soon! Warmest Aloha, Jim and Victoria

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time at this condo. The owners were in constant contact with us, always checking in and willing to help via email. You cannot beat the view! You are ocean front on the first floor. All appliances were up to date. They even had a water filter in the fridge which we really appreciated.

Be sure to rent a car when you book your stay. This place is central to everything but you need to drive to about 90% of the stuff you want to do.

We hope you enjoy!

Owner's Response: Thank you Liz and Darren. It's gratifying to know that coming all the way from Patchogue, New York you chose our oceanfront place to celebrate your all important 1st Wedding Anniversary. Most importantly you seemed to love it as much as we do. It's nice to know you were glad that we checked in with you to be sure all was perfect for you. Like you, many come here from quite fare away so it's important to us to know our guests have a great time free of any issues. We're so happy you found everything you needed to make your special celebration a perfect and memorable one. When you make it back to Maui we will still be here ready to welcome you with open arms and the aloha spirit! Maybe for your 2nd Wedding Anniversary? Warmest Aloha, Jim and Victoria

Nice, quiet spot with amazing views of the mountains, ocean, and neighboring islands.

  • 4 of 5

This property was exactly what we were looking for in terms of an Hawaiian experience. Warm ocean breezes, a private beach and turtles to boot! Although we didn't use the pool much, it is well maintained and a nice area to hang out at. It has a couple of gas grills that are available for use. The grounds are well maintained, and there is little to no disturbance from any of the adjoining condos. I would highly recommend this for a couple looking for a peaceful vacation.

Owner's Response: Thank you Steve and Viki for the wonderful review and for choosing our place to celebrate your 20th Wedding Anniversary! We also want to thank you for taking the time to send us such a lovely note following your stay - "Although we loved exploring the island, I can’t think of a better compliment than to tell you the best part of our trip was hanging at the condo. Whether it was coffee in the morning, a drink in the evening, cooking a simple meal, or ‘take out’; just hanging with the view, breeze and turtles were the highlights. It didn’t hurt that the tiny harbor of Maalaea has some great restaurants. I loved the fact that you had boogie boards, snorkel gear and beach chairs for our use." We can't tell you how much it means to us to know our guests have an excellent and memorable experience. Now that you're back in Roseburg, Oregon, we hope you're already planning your next trip back to Maui. We look forward to hosting you again very soon. Warmest Aloha, Jim and Victoria

Wonderful and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Our time in Maui was wonderful. Jim and Victorial were tremendous hosts ensuring that we were fully informed before we arrived and so accommodating to our needs. Their condo was ideally situated on the island. We loved our time on the lanai and beach enjoying the sound of the waves and watching the sea turtles. Sugar Beach is also a short walk away but goes on forever which provides miles of beach access.

The condo property is well groomed, clean and quiet. It is ideally situated for excursions, too. We drove on the road to Hana, enjoyed a whale watch in Lahaina, and went to the Botanical gardens in Kulu, as well as other local venues like the Aquarium.

If you are looking for a time of refreshing and fun, we would highly recommend Jim and Victoria's!

Owner's Response: Aloha Tim and Debbie. Thank you for being our first guests from East Longmeadow, Massachusetts. And thank you for saying such kind things about our service and our property. It means a lot because we work hard and take pride in our service. It's really important to us that our guests have the best experience possible while on Maui. We're delighted you made a point of walking to the end of the street to explore Sugar Beach. Many guests never leave the private little beach that's only a few steps from their lanai. Sugar beach is the longest beach on Maui and at our end of the beach it's nearly virgin - very lightly used. So glad you walked down the street to the Maui Ocean Aquarium - we visit there periodically. You will always be welcome back with the same spirit of aloha as you experienced on this trip. Warmest Aloha, Jim and Victoria

Maui vacation

  • 4 of 5

Our stay was enjoyable and our location was as advertised.Enjoyed the turtles ,listened to the waves as they lulled us to sleep at night.Walks along the beach first thing in the morning and last thing at night was wonderful. We enjoyed the quick responses from the staff over any concerns that we had and appreciated their help in making our stay in Maui a wonderful experience and hope to return in the future.

Owner's Response: We know Homewood, Manitoba, Canada is a long way from Maui so we very much appreciate you choosing to stay at our property on the water. In answer to your private message, "We had a great stay thanks very much for everything", we want to say, you are very welcome! We're delighted you found our place "as advertised" and had time for the turtle show that takes place daily off the lanai. It sounds like your walks along Sugar Beach (longest beach on Maui) were a highlight of your vacation. Yes, we do take some pride in our speedy response to our guests questions so thank you for noticing. In addition we pay a management company to be available to our guests 24 hours a day 7 days a week to assure they will always have someone available should the need arise. We look forward to you returning in the not too distant future. Warmest Aloha, Jim and Victoria

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were fortunate enough to spend 2 wonderful weeks in Maui at the Island Sands and this was our 3rd trip to Maui. We have rented through VRBO 5 other times prior to staying in this unit, but this is the first time I've chosen to leave a review. This unit was just as advertised: very clean, well appointed, and close to everything. My husband actually mentioned how well-rested he felt after our vacation because the bed was so comfortable! Maalaea Bay is an extremely laid back area - very quiet, which we prefer. It is central to all activities north & south on the island that we enjoy. We appreciated that the unit was ground level, because we rented a kayak for the week and property management was kind enough to allow us to store it on site. We were able to put the kayak in on the tiny beach in front of the property. Best part of the trip - whales galore in Feb! Jim & Victoria were very responsive to all of our questions, and check in/out was a breeze. We also liked that there was a designated parking space for the unit, so no driving around just to find parking! The only amenity we would have liked was a hot tub for those long days hiking or kayaking, but this is a rather difficult amenity to find among the properties located on this street, and is a personal preference so I would not hold it against this property! I would highly recommend this unit, if not for the million dollar view & kind neighbors, but for the great service provided to us by the owners before & after our stay. We look forward to staying here again very soon!

Mahalo, Jim & Victoria!

Owner's Response: Aloha Thuy and Sean. Thank you for the wonderful review! We wanted to share your private note to us because it was so lovely too: "We had a great time during our stay, and the unit was just as described and better! Everything went as planned and everyone was so nice & accommodating. We really appreciated that they let us keep our kayak on site! We were thinking about renting again next Feb., but my quick look at the calendar shows that it is already booked for the month. Please confirm. If so, you mentioned other units/properties that might be available. Could you please let me know what those are and I will take a look? Thank you again for your hospitality and great service! It made all the difference in creating wonderful memories in Maui!" I'm so sorry that we are already booked for February 2017, but we're hopeful one of our other front-row direct oceanfront places will work for you. It's quite a compliment that even though you've rented through VRBO 5 times before, we were the first place you felt compelled to leave a review for - we are very appreciative! It's very important to us that you felt our place was "as advertised: very clean, well appointed, and close to everything." and that your husband mentioned "how well-rested he felt after our vacation because the bed was so comfortable!" Should you choose to stay at one of our other oceanfront places you will find they too are peaceful yet convenient to all parts of Maui and also have "the million dollar view & kind neighbors". And of course you would get the same "great service" from us on any of our properties. Thank you for visiting Maui from Indianapolis, Indiana and we are excited to have an opportunity to host you many more times through the years. Warmest Aloha, Jim and Victoria
