Maui Vacation Rental on the Beach at Ma'alaea

Condo/Apartment -
2 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 6
Maalaea, Maui, Hawaii
Our 24-unit condo complex, called Makani a Kai, is located on the sand at the end of a dead end street behind sugar cane fields in the small quiet community of Ma'alaea Bay Village, on Maui's south side. It's away from the crowds, but centrally located near the Maui Ocean Center between the towns of Kihei, Lahaina, and Kahului. Our 2 bedroom/2 bath unit is on the ground floor for easy access with a beautiful ocean view from the living room, kitchen and one bedroom. The condo has three mini-split ductless AC units located in the living room/kitchen area and each of the bedrooms for quiet cool comfort throughout. The master and guest bedrooms have king size and queen size beds, respectively. The living room sofa folds out to a queen size bed. All beds are very comfortable and have fully encased allergy covers on the mattress... Read more

Interaction with guests
We use a lockbox to provide easy 24/7 access to the condo on guests' arrival day. We provide a welcome package consisting of coffee, creamer, muffins, juice and a fresh pineapple, so guests don't need to worry about breakfast their first morning; this is especially convenient if guests arrive on a late flight. We live nearby and are available via text, email or mobile phone should there be any questions or issues before or during a stay. Our condo has several travel guides about Maui and we're also happy to suggest our favorite restaurants and activities.

About the neighbourhood
Away from the crowds, but centrally located on Maui’s south shore 7 miles from the main airport in Kahului, 6 miles from Kihei, 12 miles from Lahaina. Our 24-units condo complex, Makani A Kai, in Ma’alaea Village, is located on the sand at the end of a dead-end street. One parking space is provided for each of the 24 condos, including two disabled spaces. There are no booking fees, resort fees, WiFi fees, parking fees or other hidden costs that you may find at other accommodations. Adjacent to 5 miles of continuous sand along Sugar Beach and Kealia Pond National Wildlife Refuge, perfect for walking and observing wildlife.
Getting around
The most convenient and flexible way to see the sights is to have a rental car. There are tours, such as the road to Hana for example, where you may wish to sit back, relax, and leave the driving to others.
