Aloha. We searched for a second home on Maui for many years. We have finally found our piece of paradise and would like to share it with you as a vacation rental. The condo we purchased has been completely remodeled. Email us and we will send you a link to view the Virtual Tour and Slideshow.
What makes this condo so exquisite is that it is on the ground floor, without a confining balcony railing, separating you from the view. For years we rented upper floor condos but the lanais were so cramped, there was no room to spread out and be comfortable. We have special security locks on the two sliding glass doors so it is safe to sleep with... them open and enjoy the beautiful ocean breezes. Our lanai opens to a huge, manicured lawn and the ocean, just steps away. Relax on the comfortable lounge chairs or dine on the outdoor dining furniture. Both the master suite and the living room face the ocean with sliding glass doors to the lanai, offering a double wall of glass and, therefore, twice the ocean view. Enjoy snorkeling, fishing and swimming right outside your lanai door. We are located at the end of the building, away from the pool, where it is absolutely quiet and there is no road noise because we are on a dead-end street. Have a relaxing massage or spa treatment in the condo or, better yet, on the lanai. Info provided in the condo.
You will find beautiful, new wood laminate floors, a new gourmet kitchen with granite counters, maple cabinets, all new appliances including a large capacity washer/dryer, and a granite bar with bar stools. The bathrooms have been completely remodeled and have granite counter tops, Italian marble tile floors and walls, imported Swarovski crystal faucet fixtures, an over-sized glass block shower in the master bath and a bathtub in the second bathroom. Other amenities include a leather sofa with two recliners for real comfort while reading or viewing your favorite TV show, a big flat screen HDTV, HBO and On Demand, DVD/CD, free unlimited long-distance calling throughout the U.S. and Canada, Voice Mail, high-speed wireless Internet, WIFI, very comfortable beds (new Cal King Serta, Dr. Greene cool gel foam mattress) in master bedroom and (Simmons Beautyrest) queen in guest bedroom, plush towels and linens, beach chairs and chaise lounges, beach towels, beach umbrellas, coolers and water toys.
Watch the whales from your lanai while taking in the view of the Haleakala Volcano and Molokini. During the season (January - March) the Humpbacks come into the Bay, where the water is calm, to have their calves. Watch them through our telescope.
No smoking indoors, please.

Why Maalaea Bay?
Location, Location, Location: Maalaea Bay is located mid-way between Lahaina and Kaanapali to the North and Wailea to the South. It is 3 miles from Kihei, a great place for moderate priced dining and shopping. The location cuts off hours of driving time to and from the best of what Maui has to offer, like a quick zip to Hana, the Volcano, and East Shore. We are only 15 minutes from the airport and the big box stores (Costco, etc.).
The Beach: Enjoy five miles of pristine, white sand beach that will never be developed because it is a Wildlife Preserve. It is the longest stretch of undeveloped beach on Maui. We love to walk the 5-mile (round trip) stretch of beach from Maalaea to Sugar Beach. It's a wonderful way to exercise and we try to walk it everyday when we are there. There are many trees on the beach for shade, a rarity on Maui beaches.
The Water: The ocean is very calm in Maalaea Bay due to an offshore reef. It is safe to swim there, especially for children. If you enjoy being knocked down by the big waves, go North to Lahania/Kaanapali or South to Kihei/Wailea.
The Weather: Maalaea Bay is on the driest part of the island. It rarely rains. You can be sitting on a sunny beach while watching the rain to the North and to the South. Why have your vacation spoiled by rain?
Dining and Attractions: Maalaea Bay offers six wonderful oceanfront restaurants including the new Saltimbocca Italian Cucina, Buzz's Warf, Beach Bums Sports Bar, PORTO Artisan Pizza, Sunsets and the General Store and Cafe, all within walking distance. The Maui Ocean Center Aquarium is a must see (voted Hawaii Top Rated Family Attraction) and a beautifully landscaped Miniature Golf Course and Amusement Center, is also within walking distance. Leaving regularly from Maalaea Harbor are boats offering fishing, diving and snorkeling, whale and dolphin watching, luncheon, dinner and sunset cruises.Read more

This condo is exactly what it purports to be. We were somewhat apprehensive renting a condo we had never seen in person or received positive feedback on from friends who had previously stayed there. We were not the least bit disappointed!!! This unit is very clean and quite nicely furnished with all the amenities you need. The photos accurately depict what staying in this condo will be like. One could easily could easily throw a rock into the ocean while sitting on the lanai. Sitting outside on the lanai in the morning and watching the whales and the sunrise is absolutely spectacular! The moon shining on the ocean at nights is a close runner up. This is a very quiet and relaxing place to stay and recharge your batteries for a bit. The complex itself felt very safe, is also nicely maintained, and just a short and pleasant walk to a number of nice restaurants and shops. We took advantage of the barbecue during most nights and enjoyed some great tropical fish that we usually do not have access to back home. There is easy access to the major highways that will readily lead to a limitless number of fun activities and destinations to explore; although I must admit, it is so nice at the condo that it is hard to motivate yourself to leave. Susan and Greg are very helpful and genuinely care about the quality of your stay when you rent their condo. Nice folks!!! I would not hesitate to recommend this condo. There are no disappointments in store for you here. We are very much looking forward to returning!!!

We had the most wonderful vacation while staying on Maui. The main reason for this fantastic vacation was the condo we rented from Susan & Greg Martin. The first impression was that it was very clean & beautifully decorated. Our first impression was correct. The condo provided all of the amenities that we needed in both the kitchen, bathrooms, etc. We especially liked renting on the first floor where we had an ocean view. There was no obstruction of a railing (like there is on the upper floors). It was soothing to be able to walk out to the water, just a few steps off the lanai. We can't wait to return.

This condo was perfect for our family as it had all of the amenities we needed to enjoy our stay on Maui. The view and location can't be beat with the ocean just steps away from the patio. It was close to all of the activities we wanted to do and it was close to the beach. It is a very clean place and the kitchen was well equipped for cooking, and it was great to have laundry facilities to dry towels or throw in a load of wash. The grounds outside were impeccable and what fun to see the sea turtles and Haleakala right from our patio!
Overall, a great time and we would highly recommend it as a relaxing place to stay while in Maui!

My son, his girlfriend and my husband wanted to come to Maui but the prices of the hotel rooms were totally unaffordable. After many *weeks* of reading the reviews and looking at the pictures of hundreds of condos on Maui, I called Susan. I have never rented a condo before and I had tons of questions and was very skeptical about giving my credit card information out. Susan was so understanding about all my concerns and reassured me about the process. I can't begin to tell you how glad I am that I found her. Everytime I would email or call there was almost an instant response. I find that amazing.
Now on to the condo review. The instructions that we were given to check in were spot-on. When we opened the door, it was fabulous. The location is awesome. It is in a very quiet area in Maalaea. No screaming kids. Very central to everything on the island and being close to the harbor for fishing and snorkeling trips was wonderful. I was very happy to find that the condo was very clean and looked just like the pictures on the internet.
We needed some privacy for both my husband and myself and my son and his girlfriend and this condo provided this. Bedrooms and bathrooms on either end of the unit. The thing I loved the most is that it is on the 1st floor and next to the last condo on the end. It is so nice to walk out your lanai door from either the living room or the bedroom and go directly to the beach with out having to climb down stairs. At night the kids would take the lawn chairs out and sit by the ocean for their own quiet time. The grass at the unit was well manicured and like being on a golf course. Everything we needed for our stay was provided, plenty of towels, snorkle equipment, boogie boards and cooking essentials. Having the washer and dryer was great. Staying in this condo was an amazing experience and as far as my family is concerned we are already saving up to come back next year. Thanks again Susan for sharing your wonderful home with us.

We had a great time in mauii. The condo we rented from susan and greg was awesome it was central for all our activities and even went and tried the redysurants near by. They were all great. I would recommend this condo to anyone looking for a quiet relaxing holiday.

We love ocean front. Whales galore, turtles popping up, and a clear unobstructed view of the ocean. This condo location is premium and cant be beat. With all the comforts of home, we will return, yet again.

I've spent two vacations in this beautiful condo that's on the first floor. It gives you the opportunity to walk down to the beach or watch the sunset from your patio. The place was spotless and I'd definitely return again.

This condo was so incredible. The view from the ground floor is breathtaking! The condo is fully stocked with everything that you will need. The bedding is so comfortable and the leather sofa and wide screen t.v. makes everything feel like home. Thanks for sharing your home with us! We will be back for sure.

Wow ! My family of 4 stayed at this beautiful condo for two weeks in September. Magnificent unimpeded view overlooking ,Maalaea Bay with everything you will need for a relaxing holiday. Maalaea Bay is the perfect location - within 20-30 minutes drive to the main tourist centres of Lahinia/Kihei/Paia - yet still very peaceful with no traffic noise at all. The trade winds kept everything cool and the sunsets and sunrise over Haleakala Volcano were stunning. Well equipt kitchen helped keep the costs down and we found the modern washer/dryer very useful.
In short, why stay in a cramped hotel room when you can stretch out and relax in a spacious condo such as this ? Highly recommended !

We had an absolutely wonderful time! The condo was beautiful and exceptionally kept and (of course) the view was awesome. We loved just sitting out on the Lanai at sunset and first thing in the morning, the view of Haleakala and the nightlights of Kihei and Wailea and the absolute quietness of the area (no traffic!!!)
We loved the location, mainly because it being our first time in Maui, we wanted to explore all parts of it, to determine what we liked and what we would like to visit again. Although as we visited the Lahaina area had all the resorts and many activities, that drive (and traffic) would have gotten tiresome to visit the rest of the island.
We definitely will be returning to Maui, will tell our friends and would love to stay at your place again. We have been to Kauai, Oahu, Big Island and now Maui, and by far, Maui is our favorite and staying in a beautiful home as yours definitely was much more our style than staying at a hotel or resort.
Exceptional tranquil location: relax and enjoy yourself

We visited in February 2011, and, spent a fabulous week in the condo, the central location is excellent, close to everything.
The area around the condo is blissfully peaceful and calm, with beautiful outlook on the bay, and steps to a swim and snorkel in the bay just meters from the patio.
The condo is immaculate and well appointed, has a well equipped modern kitchen, all modern amenities, some days we cooked at home and ate on the patio, other days we strolled down for dinner to the great restaurants (Waterfront, Beach Bums) short walk away.
We ate breakfast on the patio and enjoyed almost continuous whale shows in the bay right in front of us: the whales were breaching, fin slapping, tail slapping or just swimming with their young and blowing water. You can
even hear the whales' 'tail slapping' from the patio.
We made several sightseeing trips to other parts of Maui, the central location of Maalaea is very convenient, not too far from anything.

The condo was private and gorgeous with an open marvelous view. The location was ideally located between two fun and spectacular resort destinations.It was very romantic with all new amenities.

We spent two glorious weeks. The condo was very clean and well appointed. The view from the lanai is outstanding and the whales put on a great show during our stay. The grounds, especially the grass were very well maintained. We have stayed in other condo complexes in Maalaea Bay and Lauloa #111 is our favorite so far. It was very quiet and private . We would not hesitate to recommend this unit to others or return ourselves. Thank you Greg and Susan for the use of you beautiful condo.

The location was superb--very central to other area of the islands. We found the area very peaceful, and laid back, just what we needed, as my son and his daughter got married while we were there.
When we got into the condo we noticed that the windows and patio had not been cleaned, along with the screens on the window, which was very disheartening. We understand with the location of the condo that there is going to be dust, but one does expect a certain cleaniness upon at check-in. We also noticed that the internet access was not secure, so be careful when logging in.
Overall the vacation was great, the condo was nice, and the location is to die for.
If you decide to stay in this condo, you won't be disappointed Read more
So sorry, but our guests checked-in immediately after the biggest storm in over 30 years on Maui and windows and screens got dirty and our management company could not get to all of the condos in a timely manner due to damage in many of their units. If we had known there was a problem with dirt on windows and screens, we could have hired an independent company to clean them, but there was no request from the guests. The wireless internet is now secured with a password.

What is so special about this condo is the huge private lanai area with the lovely lawn and flower garden. I loved lying out on the chaise lounges while reading a book and sipping a cool drink. You just don't have that kind of space on the upper floor condos where you are confined to a small balcony. I felt as though I was at a private home instead of a busy condo complex like so many others. The condo itself is beautiful with all the amenities. Great location loved the walks on the quiet non crowded beach. Beautiful view. Wish I was there enjoying it now.

We just returned from a week in Susan & Greg's condo.
We greatly enjoyed using the condo as our island home-base as its location is excellent and the comfort of the condo is very good. I won't repeat all the comments shared by earlier reviews, but I will say all the positive feedback is justified and we would strongly consider staying at the condo again in the future. A big thanks to Susan for all her work to ensure our stay was great...it was.

This condo is and its location is spectacular. I have vacationed on Maui about a dozen times but my stay at your condo was the best ever. It was so, so quiet and relaxing. I look forward to staying at Lauloa #111 again and again.

Best place to stay in Maui! Beautiful, comfortable and wonderful location. The condo is beautifully appointed and has all the creature comforts anyone would desire on vacation. The location is great. the condo faces the water, which is just a few steps away from the patio off the living room and master bedroom. When I was there I saw mother whales and their babies frolicking just off shore! The complex is small, quiet and very private, yet it is easily accessible to everything Maui has to offer in entertainment, dining, and daytime jaunts.
