A friend and I recently stayed in unit # 202 Ma'alaea Yacht Marina. You open the front door into an airy and spacious condo with a mesmerizing and expansive view of the Ma'alaea Bay.
The furnishings are "top of the line" with all the amenities you can possibly need. The pictures of the condo were exactly as depicted on the VRBO site we rented from.
I've been island hopping since '69 and wanted to try a new area. I must say that this is one of the nicest condos I've stayed in. We were here for a wedding in Lahaina and it was always a pleasure to return to the quiet of Ma'alaea. This location is central to everything.
Some "cons" during our visit that may or may not affect other visitors who stay here :
It was extremely windy our visit (July) but we still spent alot of time on the lanai sipping "tall cool ones" ..but had to hold down anything that could fly away !
There was alot of drilling going on next door that started early. For a late sleeper it might be annoying...but to be fair...full-time occupants do live here that may need to do property repairs.
The condo was wonderful...but Ma'alaea is really not for me. I usually stay near Napili Bay or Wailea where the landscape is more lush with lifesize ferns..palms..vibrant flowers and birds.
Ma'alaea harbor was fun with plenty of beaches nearby. The surrounding area was miles of swaying cane fields..minimal foliage...dry hillside. For some..perfect...but I missed that jungle feel surrounding me..and especially missed the scent of plumeria wafting through the breeze.
