My third time at this complex; first time in this unit. Best feature is that both bathrooms have been skillfully remodeled with tasteful stone and tile, large showers, and quality cabinets. Excellent mattress & nice linens in master bedroom; good twins in 2nd bedroom. Loved the large lanai overlooking pool, beautiful landscaped grounds, and ocean. More spacious lanai with better views than side units; positioned to avoid hottest sun and strongest breeze. Easy entry/exit to ocean just a few steps from lawn.
Unit has A/C, W/D, and cable TV (living room only). The room I use LEAST on vacation is the kitchen, so did not mind lack of granite and stainless. Liked the free, reliable WiFi.

Stayed: May 2010, travelled with family

Views from the lanai and bedroom are fantastic. Real nice, quiet well maintained complex. Centrally located. #401 is beyond nice. It has everything to make your stay complete and unhurried. Quality dinnerware,flatware and cookware. Not the usual Walmart stuff found in most rentals. Furniture and bed the same quality. I have stayed all over Maui over the years and this unit is the best bar none. Planning my return already.

I usually stay on the west side of the island, but had an opportunity to stay here for 2 weeks with my brother. I love the west side of Maui, but I now love this area as well. The grounds are beautifully kept, very clean and very tropical. This area is very quiet and the beach in front continues 4 miles all the way to Kihei. The condo we stayed in was great. We especially enjoyed the lanai, we started and ended our days there. The view is fabulous day and night. We enjoyed seeing the boats leaving the harbor, Molokini and Kahoolowai, and the many whales that frequent the area during the season. We booked directly thru the owner, Mary, who is a real pleasure to work with. She responded to all my questions promptly. Check out the website on vrbo, Maui # 58258. The photos do not due it justice, but the description is accurate. Maalaea is centrally located on Maui and the harbor area is really great with the shops and restaurants. You can book site seeing trips and boat trips right there at the small shack next to the main parking area. Look for the whale carved from a dead tree. This is not a time share and Scott the owner, really knows his stuff. All in all, this is a great place to stay.

We went to Maui for our second time in May 2009. We stayed in Unit # 401 at this property. From the photos on their web site we expected a great place, and when we arrived we were NOT disappointed. The view from the lanai was incredible. It was such that one struggled to leave to go somewhere. The waves crash below the fourth floor room, the breeze, at least when we were there, makes it unecessary for AC. The unit is clean and well appointed. Our experience with the owner was very timely and pleasant. The only negative think that I can think of is that the elevator is not convenient to this unit, but it's not bad walk, and we are people who mostly take the stairs anyway. The top of the stairway ends right in front of this corner unit.

We are going back in February 2010 to watch the whales, and I'm told by more than one source that this location is among the best to do that. We looked at other places for our next trip in February, but our memory of the unit, the area and the beach made us choose this place again. The unit is located very near the Maalaea Bay Harbor if you want to do the boat trips available, and it is relatively close to Kihei, a place you will want to visit if you have never been there before. It is about a 20 minute drive from the airport depending on traffic. A Safeway market is only about 10 minutes away. If we ever go again after February, we will likely stay at this unit again.

We just returned from a fabulous vacation to Maalaea, in mid February. Our condo was 319 in the Kanai A Nalu resort, and we were very happy with it. It was very clean, and beautifully decorated and bright. It looked right onto the ocean, and every day we were treated to amazing displays by everpresent whales! It was amazing. The only complaints I could possibly have about our particular unit was it would have been nice to have a hair dryer and a DVD player, and better loungers/chairs on the lanai. Otherwise we were completely happy.
The resort of Kanai A Nalu is set at the end of a dead-end road, and the location is very quiet. In addition, the quiet rules of the resort are respected, and it was always very quiet there, with no running and screaming either on the walkways and stairs, or on the lawns in front of us. It was all very clean and well kept, and though we didn't have an assigned parking stall, we were always able to find a parking spot.
Maalaea is as windy as advertised, sometimes crazily so, but it keeps it cool, and the only problem I ever found was walking on the beach in the high wind can be painful with the flying sand! But the beach starts right outside the resort, and winds on down forever - perfect for walks. There were plenty of lounge chairs, and you could lounge on the beautiful lawns in front of the ocean, or by the small by clean and lovely pool. (Would have enjoyed a hot tub as well, but there wasn't one).
Maalaea is quite small, and we found ourselves driving almost daily to Kihei (for groceries, restaurants, etc), but it wasn't a long drive. And we liked being out of the bustle of the busier places. Maalaea was very good as a base from which to drive nearly everywhere on Maui.
We booked our condo through Hawaii Vacation Condos Inc., and they were very helpful, and even booked our rental car for us at a great rate.
