Oceanfront Maalaea condo with lanai, lovely views & shared pool - steps to beach

Savor the tropical beauty of this one-bedroom Maalaea condo, a relaxing, oceanfront escape with a private lanai, community access to an outdoor pool, and a wondrous location just a few steps from Maui's beaches.

You'll find this ground-floor condo in Makani A Kai, a low-rise condominium community on the breezy shores of Maalaea Bay. Take a few seconds to walk over to Haycraft Park and Beach right next door, head three-quarters of a mile southwest to book a diving or whale-watching excursion in Maalaea Harbor, and travel with ease to and from Kahului Airport only 10 miles northeast. Walk to Maui Golf & Sports Park for miniature golf, rock climbing, bumper boats, and extreme trampolining, or head to Maui Ocean Center Aquarium for a look at Maui's underwater world. Shops, restaurants, and convenience stores are also within walking distance. If scuba, snorkeling, whale watching, deep sea fishing or a dinner cruise is on your agenda, Aqua Adventures and Maalaea Activities have you covered.

Whether you're seeking a romantic getaway or a sun-splashed solo retreat, you'll find a living space full of uniquely Hawaiian ambiance. Begin each morning with a tropical fruit smoothie in the newly updated kitchen (which includes a refrigerator, a dishwasher, a coffee maker and grinder, and a blender and a full sized oven). Then check the ocean tides on the free WiFi and grab the provided snorkel gear and beach chair for an unforgettable day on the sand.
Come home in the afternoon to take a dip in the community swimming pool and use one of the shared gas grills to prepare an island feast with friends. Back at the condo, you can sip cocktails outside on the furnished lanai, find something fun to watch on the cable TV and Blu-ray player, or take an indulgent afternoon nap as the wall-unit air conditioner and ceiling fans circulate the ocean breeze.

Experience oceanfront relaxation on Maui's gorgeous shores - book your trip to the beach today!

Well equipped one-BR apartment at ground level. Living room and patio have a distant sea-view. Good bathroom and kitchen (in living room). Location at end of beach road, directly on the ocean. Smallish pleasant pool, loungers on the grass close to the sea. Long sandy beach (can be quite rough) and protected area begin close by. Some noise from parking lot and visitors to the beach (during WE there were several tents with big families/groups of friends next to the compound). And the flight path for landing at OGG airport from the West passes right above the buildings, with older jets being rather noisy. Nevertheless overall a great place to stay and discover Maui. Not many shopping opportunities nearby, but some good restaurants. A car is highly recommended.

Very clean upon arrival with a little welcome gift from Vacasa. It's our 2nd time renting this unit and 4th time at Makana A Kai. The condo is well equipped for cooking and preparing meals. We like the location because its not crowded and its the last building before Haycraft Park and a long sandy beach with very little people. But be aware that the lanai gives on the park. The park can be noisy especially during the weekends when people come camping and celebrating in the park. The noise usually stops around 9PM and starts at 7AM. Aside that the AC in the condo is also a bit noisy, so we managed most of the time with the fan and opening the bedroom window to get a breeze. The washer/dryer are in the common building and they now have an app to pay and start the machines.
We liked our time spent there.

Place was very very clean and had such a nice view. Would recommend completely!

Loved the location, close to the beach.

Unfortunately the upstairs tenant was quite loud. Moving furniture and stomping feet late in the evening and very early morning.

Both BBQ were old and dirty. One night I gave up trying and cooked chicken in oven. Manager was told one was not working correctly but 2 days later it was still not fixed.

Ceiling fan wobbled badly.

Everything else was great.

It was a quiet neighborhood and perfectly located next to the beach!

We Love this area! This unit and complex is at the end of the dead end of Haouli St. It is next to the park and is right on the 7 miles of Sugar Beach leading to Kihei. From this location, you easily access all parts of Maui since it is in the middle south of the island. The condo itself was fully equipped, clean and close to the view of ocean. The layout of the rooms works very well. We would recommend Makain A Kai!

We were practically standing on the beach. The condo was a complete two week residence for our escape from the winter. Everything was just as described, and when we needed help we got got it quickly from a competent support team. Our flight into HI was forced to land at SF because of a faulty landing gear. We had to de-plane and re-board. As a result we arrived at Makani A Kai A8 around midnight, not in the afternoon, as we planned. We could not even find the building in the pitch-dark. But the 24 hour support agent, Diane, navigated us competently to the parking lot, and to our apartment. Just an example of our experience. We hope to go back.

We loved our recent stay and would recommend this condo to anyone wanting a quiet beachfront getaway, that’s still close to Kihei. The complex is at the end of a dead end street, adjacent to a park, so there’s little traffic. The beach was never crowded and you can walk for miles heading East. Everything in the condo was relatively new; nice furniture, appliances, etc. Coffee maker was a little old, so if you’re a coffee snob, I would recommend bringing a press or pour over, but there is a grinder available. Overall, very nice property and condo, would definitely stay here again.

We always try to rent in this condo complex because it’s well located and well managed.
Because of the adjacent public park, it gets lively with local folks and music during opening hours.
The condo was in great shape, just a couple of things to address: the sofa bed is too uncomfortable for adults and the ceiling fan in the living room is not well balanced and swings hard at full speed, so you need to bring it to minimum speed to avoid swaying.
Aside that it was very clean and equipped will all needed kitchenware to cook meals.

Almost everything, the only thing I didn't like was the couch bed, maybe the mattress is too old.
Donat G. Dec 2018
We really enjoyed staying at this place. The apartment was tidy and clean as well as located meters away from a nice beach.
Jenna P. Nov 2018
Condo was beautiful and very clean. Adorable gift left on counter when we arrived. Perfect location to everything we wanted as it was very centrally located. Beautiful grounds, plenty of parking, and a gorgeous view. It was extremely easy to find and use key pad to enter and exit.
Debra K. Oct 2018
Lovely complex with beautiful landscaping. First floor unit just steps away from the beach. Condo complex is down a quiet road. Easy walk to the harbor to check out boats. Couple restaurants also within easy walking distance.
