Quietly nestled in the heart of Ma’alaea, ocean front Ma’alaea Kai # 214 tempts you to relax and hang out at the resort, while its central location and proximity to main roads invite you to venture forth to all points Maui! The unit has a queen bed, sofa sleeper, full bathroom, and kitchen making it comfortable for four guests. The upscale remodeled kitchen is fully equipped—you should try your hand at pupu prep (appetizers) and island style cooking. If you prefer grilling, head out to the BBQ areas, where it’s a real treat to meet and “talk story” with fellow guests, before heading back to dine on your lanai. The ocean views from there are extraordinary. This unit has central AC, cable TV, high-speed internet and WIFI—all complementary (as is assigned parking). The central laundry, elevator, and carts for luggage and groceries make the mundane more convenient.
Outside is a heated pool, two BBQ/picnic areas, and lounge chairs that provide premier seating for what’s happening in the bay: harbor boats, paddlers, surfers, and the cycle of sunrises over it & sunsets into it. The reef area in front of the resort is home to Hawaiian Sea Turtles; endemic to Hawai’i, these ancient air-breathing reptiles go back 150 million years—and weigh-in at 150 to 400 pounds each—amazing! Another marvelous nature experience includes the winter return of Humpback Whales to our protected waters—they travel 3,500 miles to birth their big babies (roughly,12 feet long, weighing 2,000 pounds), then nurse and nurture them until it’s time to head back to Alaska in April. You can see them from this unit!
Along with resort features, there are two nearby attractions within walking distance: the harbor with its tour boats, restaurants and shops, and Sugar Beach with its two-miles-plus of uninterrupted sandy shoreline. Finally, one of the best features of your condo is its central location; you are within a 15 to 40-minute commute to world-class man-made venues and an astonishing assortment of natural attractions, including some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, stunning mountain hikes, tropical flora and fauna and ocean views and adventures.
