Great Stay in Paradise
This is the 3rd time we have stayed at this location but the first time in this unit. This is a fabulous property and location. It is clean, quiet, right on the water, steps from the beach and close enough to any place you want to visit. The outside grills and the swimming pool are wonderful. This unit was also great. The 4th floor gives you an outstanding view of the water which means you can enjoy the humpback whale “nursery” every day. The unit comes with everything you need and we were there for 2 months. Washer and dryer inside the unit is a great plus! Owners were wonderful to work with and flexible in our scheduling process. I’ve never had a VRBO owner be as helpful. Thanks Lynnette. It was a great time - Corona virus and all!
My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Condo is centrally located making it very convenient to all areas in Maui. Especially enjoyed watching the whales from the lanai. Owner was easy to contact and very accommodating. Highly recommend!
Overall satisfied with stay with one exception.
The pictures for this unit are completely accurate. It is comfortable and well kept. Nice view from balcony. Elevator was appreciated. Would like to point out, however, that this is WATERFRONT and no longer a BEACHFRONT property as listed. There is no more beach accessible directly at this property. The beach has eroded as has the stone step structure that was there to access the beach -- now looks like a sinkhole with exposed pipes and is all taped off. To get to any sandy beach, you must drive a short distance to a public parking lot at the end of the road and access a lovely sandy beach there which extends to the south of the property. I booked this property specifically for the BEACHFRONT as several members of my family had never been to Maui before and were looking forward to this aspect of their stay. I would have booked a different property had I known this ahead of time. With that one exception, the condo was totally adequate for our stay and clean.
Unfortunately we had exceptionally strong storms in the fall of 2019 that did wash away our steps and parts of our seawall. We have finally been approved for and have scheduled repairs taking place by mid July 2020. The beach is still just beyond the pool and viewing the humpbacks whales is fantastic from the elevated grassy area.
Maalaea, Maui Experience
We went to Maui for the humpback whale migration back to Alaska, early in January, 2020. Except for one phone call early in the process, all of our communication was done over the internet with Lynette Mote, one of the two owners. The process was so smooth, and that was because she made it so easy. When we arrived, the place was very clean, well organized. The departure was well organized, with instructions of how the transition worked for our leaving the condo with sheets and towels already being laundered by us. The cleaners would follow up to remake beds and do the cleaning of the condo. We felt we were part of the process. We would definitely stay with them again!
It was perfect for our family
Maalaea is a quiet little village on the southern shore, centrally located between Kihei and Lahaina. At the beginning of our dead end street is the acclaimed Maui Ocean Center and first class cuisine at the Waterfront. Touring the island is easily accessible and escaping to tranquility is as easy as staying in!

Why Lynnette Mote chose Maalaea
After visiting Maui for almost 20 years, we finally stayed at Kanai A Nalu and loved it! Easy to get around the island, but secluded and tranquil when we just wanted to stay at the condo-exactly what we were looking for during our times in Maui! The beach is almost always ours with just a few others sharing it and the surf is gentle enough for our little ones to play in and build sandcastles!
What makes this Condo unique
Easy access to tour, quiet corner, hidden gem!
