This is one of 4 corner units at Maalaea Yacht Marina, located on the second floor. Big windows wrap the corner so the view is stunning even from the kitchen. You can easily host dinner for six at the large lanai table and enjoy the spectacular changing of the colors as the sun sets. Recently upgraded with stylish furniture in living area, including a pocket door from bedroom for privacy and sound separation. New flat screen tv, blu-ray dvd and free wifi. Custom kitchen with beautiful granite countertops and custom cabinets is well equipped with all necessities. Large master bedroom with sliding glass door leading into the lanai offers a full view of the water. The comfy king-sized bed has upgraded linens and lots of closet space. Separate vanity with large, tiled walk-in shower gives the feeling you're in a home and not a cramped hotel room. Many upgrades throughout, including broadband and cable TV. A new queen size sofa sleeper sleeps an additional 2 persons.Maalaea is a great, central 'jumping-off' point to most points of interest on Maui. The airport is 15 minutes away, and you can reach Lahaina and the North Shore in a half hour. Kihei and Wailea are 20 minutes to the south, with 4 great golf courses located 5 miles or less.Yes, there is wind in Maalaea, but you are sheltered on the lanai and can enjoy the views all day. We will gladly trade the traffic and congestion in the larger towns for the quiet residential feel in Maalaea. There are four excellent restaurants within a short walk. The Maalaea General Store offers many wonderful convenience/grocery items and the Tradewinds deli is a great place to pick up sandwiches and chat with the friendly owners.There is a small beach inside the breakwater, but you can walk to the end of Hau'oli Road to the four mile beach (it's about 1/2 mile and there is parking should you choose to drive). The beach is great for walking, swimming, and snorkeling (be sure to bring the snorkel gear, beach towels and boogie boards that are located in the bedroom closet!) But if you prefer, you can watch surfers challenging the Freight Train, a shore break known for it's speed and intensity, from your comfortable lanai seat. You might even see the resident Monk Seal (named Humpy) or the two eagle rays (named Spot and Ray).Enjoy the famous Waterfront Restaurant, Beach Bums, Buzz's Wharf, and Seascape Restaurant, there is also the Maui Ocean Center, Maui Dive Shop, ice cream and gourmet coffee. Carl's Junior is at the highway intersection, and there are miniature golf and bumper boats. You can catch the Maui Bus at the sidewalk below the Ocean Center if you'd rather not drive to Lahaina, Kaahumanu Mall, Wailea, Paia, etc. The routes can change, I try to keep updates in the condo, but there are up to date schedules posted in the Village and on-line.We purchased the condo in December 2013. Previous owner rented out this unit for several years with many positive reviews. Owning an oceanfront condo has been a dream come true for us and we are thrilled with the idea of using it primarily as a vacation rental while visiting occasionally with our own family and friends. We treat the condo with love and make it a priority to always have it in the best possible condition. We consider our guests as friends and truly want them to have a wonderful experience while on Maui. We have wonderful managers on the island who are available whenever you need them. Extra person charge (over 4 persons): $10.00/day. Please, at least 1 person must be over 25 years of age.Please ask about our monthly or weekly discounts.TripAdvisor property ID 2287077...Read more

Loved our stay at the condo, wish we could have stayed longer but will definitely return. The corner unit was so spacious and with the tree and ocean so close by, you felt like you were in a private world all to yourself. The condo was clean, comfortable and everything worked well. The owners were very helpful and offered advice and directions to everything. We walked to the start of the 5 miles of secluded beach. Maalaea is a quiet, safe residential area. People are friendly and it doesn't take long to feel right at home with the harbor shops close by and the laid back vibe of the people on the property. So glad we came!

As soon as you walk in, you're taken by the views from both sides of the lanai. We spent so much time just sitting on the lanai, watching the harbor activities (fishing, canoeing, etc) while looking out for turtles that swim into the harbor. The interior was bright, fresh & clean and well organized. Also, loved the comfy bed and well stocked kitchen -- I found everything I needed and then some. Drove to the end of the road and took long walks on Sugar Beach which was mostly empty. At first wasn't so sure about location but realized its an easy drive to Kihei and Kaanapali and Kahalui. We enjoyed the great pastrami sandwiches at Tradewinds too.
I would definitely come back again and stay longer next time!
