Moana Ipo (ocean lover)
You can not get closer to the ocean on Maui!
Maalaea is quiet & private yet central to everything and it has some of the most pristine and lightly visited beaches on the island – it is absolutely the best kept secret on Maui!
Look no further for a perfect Honeymoon or Anniversary get-away, whether it’s your first or your 50th!
From our new counters, bamboo cabinets, remodeled bathroom, furniture, and new king bedroom suite and mattress to the unparalleled panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean and outer islands, you will love this cozy home. You’ll have a front row seat for viewing whales, turtles, dolphins and boating activities…get even closer with our huge professional binoculars!
You can’t get closer to the ocean than this unit that is ideally situated and centrally located for all points on Maui.
Maalaea is famous for the bay the humpback whales use each year to birth and mate, and you’ll see it all during the fall and winter months. Thinking of coming in the spring or summer? Why not sign up for a turtle patrol and watch for nesting green and hawksbill turtles as you walk the longest beach on Maui. Walk the pristine and hardly used beach to Kealia Pond or Sugar Beach one direction, or walk to the Harbor shops and restaurants the other direction.
Our beautiful 1 bedroom/1 bath unit is on the second floor so the ocean feels like an extension of the living room and lanai. It is perfect for a single user or couple that wants a quiet retreat, yet central to everything on Maui. There are two elevators and stairway nearby, a security screen door to allow wonderful cross ventilation all night long, King sized bed, large TV’s in both the bedroom and living room; ceiling fans in the living room, bedroom, and on the lanai; free secured wireless internet. Eat out on the large lanai as you gaze at the great Pacific or walk to what may become your favorite Maui restaurant.
We have thought of everything to make your home away from home comfortable and inviting; there are beach chairs, umbrella,
coolers, and beach towels for your use and enjoyment. We even have a regular hand held or giant binocular for your use.
Because we are on-island owners, we can attend carefully to the needs of our condo and our guests. In addition we employ a management company to be certain our guests can reach someone anytime of day or night.
