The location is to die for, about 100 feet to the water's edge. A panoramic view that you dream of with the beach and ocean right before you. Bill and Chris have thought of everything, all the amenities you look for and more. They also accommodated us for our special needs. Thank you for a wonderful vacation!!

“Gorgeous beachfront condo”
Reviewed 11 February 2018 for a stay in February 2018

Awesome beachfront condo...just 20 feet from beach. Beautiful views of the bay, with frequent whale sightings. Furnishings were gorgeous with well stocked kitchen. Sitting out on lanai every morning seeing sun come up was the best. Quiet area and central to all areas of the island. Owners were great. I highly recommend this condo and would rent it again in a heartbeat!!

“Exceeded expectations”
Reviewed 10 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

people found this review helpful

This is a two bedroom and two full bath condo directly on the beach in Maalea. It was fully appointed including kitchen and was immaculate. We enjoyed the full length two story windows with spectacular views of the bay and saw sea turtles just outside the lanai. There was shared access to two Weber Genesis-style grills and a pool. Parking was very easy. Would definitely recommend to a friend.

“Great oceanfront condo experience”
Reviewed 5 September 2017 for a stay in August 2017

person found this review helpful

This is a nicely maintained and well-stocked condo, and it's right on the water. The bedroom is on a second level and looks down via large windows onto the beach and ocean. Maalaea is about twenty minutes from the airport by car, and it's a pretty straightforward trip. Less than half a mile away are a few restaurants, a convenience store and the aquarium, and the marina as well.

You don't walk straight out of the condo to the beach, as going straight out takes you onto the balcony. To get to the beach you go around the building to get to the break in the low hedges that provides access to the beach. On the beach there are usually small numbers of people strolling along or in the water snorkeling, but sometimes it's empty. There was a spot in the water quite near the beach where we often saw animals lingering, perhaps small sea turtles or fish, couldn't quite tell, but it seemed like turtles.

There's a parking lot with plenty of room -- all you need do is put in a form with your car's information so that you can park in the lot. The doors don't have keys, using electronic locks instead, so you'll have to remember the key code (simple to remember). There's also a small pool that also has access via a code. A laundry room with plenty of machines is near the parking lot, and it uses quarters but the owner left more than enough for one load to be both washed and dried.

It took us a while to get used to navigating along the paths to our unit, as they aren't really marked. Lots of little lizards scooting across the path as you walk along but they have a skill for not getting stepped on so no need to worry!

Highly recommended -- a clean and comfortable condo in a very pretty spot, with amenities conveniently located.

“Highly recommend for old and young alike”
Reviewed 30 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

After having spent a week in Kahana, we requested an early check-in to Makani A Kai. Bill graciously accommodated us making our two grandchildren (ages 10 and 9) happy to have an earlier day at the beach, located directly in front of the balcony.
The kids were never bored with the beach, pool, watching the sea turtles feed and chilling in the loft at their disposal. They were especially enthralled with the behind-the-scene tour of the nearby Maui Ocean Center.

We were pleasantly surprised at the number of amenities provided - more so than any other place we have stayed - and we are definitely looking forward to returning.

Beach front Maalaea was all that it was promised to be and more! Waking up with a view of the ocean was incredible, the breakfast goodies waiting the first morning, snorkling gear and boogie boards, the swimming pool, etc.
We would love to come back again!

Thanks for the nice review Warren. Sorry again about the check out mix up. That was totally my fault and I apologize. I had it written down right in front of that you weren't checking out until 5 PM. I'm not sure what I was thinking. Anyway I'm glad you enjoyed your stay in our condo. Please come back and see us again. Aloha, Bill

“Amazing Condo”
Reviewed 3 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017
2
people found this review helpful

The condos are at the end of the road and therefore mostly quiet. It feels like home when you come in. The two bathrooms are a big plus as is the distance (or no-distance) to the ocean. We enjoyed our stay a lot and would definitely come again.
+ full equipped kitchen
+ fast Wifi
+ Netflix
+ close to beach
+ clean
+ loooots of towels
+ hasslefree check-in and check-out
- stores in walking distance close early
- airconditioning only in the living room (can get a bit warm in bedrooms but not too bad, since there are ventilators in every room)

in all, an amazing place to stay!
