Beautiful condo, but very windy
Mar, 2020
Donna W. from Fremont, CA
Pros: Central Location. The condo complex is at the center of the island, 30 minutes or less from anywhere you want to go (southern beaches, Lahaina, Hana Highway, airport). The view: The view off my balcony was amazing. I saw whales in the distance (bring binoculars). When it wasn’t windy, I could leave the windows open and listen to the surf all night. Unit 311: immaculately clean, nicely decorated, with a fully equipped kitchen and comfy beds. Near the aquarium and boat dock. I took a whale watching tour sponsored by the Pacific Whale Foundation that was fantastic.

So, So: There is no beach access from the condo complex, just a crumbling retaining wall on the edge of the property. There is a nice beach about 2 minutes walk down the road. Because the complex faces south, there is no sunset view from the condo or the beach. You have to drive south to watch a sunset. Nice pool; no hot tub.

Cons: Windy!!! This is one of the windiest places on Maui. I was there 7 days, on four of them the wind was 25 mph. Isolated: No grocery store and few restaurants near the condo. The Maui Aquarium is a mile away and there is a small market and a couple of restaurants in the adjacent shopping center.

Beautiful Location and Very Centrally Located

Rudy R. P. from Corona Del Mar, CA
The unit was very clean and comfortable. Quiet and close walking distance to the beach. The grounds were kept very clean and we enjoyed walking to the little harbor at the end of the street. It was also centrally located so getting places was very easy and didn’t take long at all. People at the managers office were very polite, kind and helpful. We definitely would stay there again and would recommend the place. There is also a wonderful breeze that comes through the unit which I really enjoyed. Thank you for a great experience.
E Z process. Very nice condo

Awesome condo with a beautiful view. Amazing sleep at night as we could listen to the ocean with windows open bcs the breeze ripping though the apartment was incredible. Clean and well appointed. Great location with access to all things providing you have a car.
Great Place - Wonderful location

Stacy W. from Cedar Knolls, NJ
The view was wonderful. The property was well maintained and in a very central location. The only issue was that there were brush fires in the area and we were evacuated. Thankfully we were able to get back late that night so that we could sleep there. The only thing the rental company offered us was the location of an evacuation shelter. We were not refunded for a half a day's rent (the time we couldn't get to the place) or an alternate place to stay. They didn't even phone us letting us know we could get back in. We had to look on our phones for the latest updates.

We sincerely apologize for the natural disaster that took place during your stay. When events like this occur, communication can be very difficult amongst the chaos and up-to-date information can be hard to find. Additionally, there was an order for all residents to evacuate North Kihei so 75% of our staff had to leave to go collect their loved ones, animals, and personal effects. We certainly would have transferred you to another one of our units in Kihei, however all of the Hwy's into Kihei were closed because of the fire. We really did the best we could to notify each of our in-house guests through "push notifications" of 1. what was happening. 2. where to go. 3. Where to find updated information on the fire. This was certainly an unfortunate thing to happen during your stay and I'm sorry that our options for you were extremely limited during the event, but I'm happy you were able to get back in safely.
Great location

The property itself was very well maintained and very clean. The unit we were in was very clean as well and would definitely recommend as this town is pretty central to everything and it is not a super busy town which is nice.

The Condo location is great, you are in the middle of the island so a quick drive to every coast. The property is well maintained and clean. Great view of the other islands. Beach access, wonderful pool, grill and plenty of parking. Recommended.

We loved the rental. The unit was wonderful and in a great location. It was as we had our own private beach. The best part is we got a lot more for our money than we expected. Would highly recommend staying here.

Great location. Ideal as a base to trip around the island. Very close to the harbor from which all the tours depart to Molokini. Convenient for early trip.

We looked at so many condos for our vacation to Maui. We decided on Kana'i A Nalu for it's location, view, and price. We were not disappointed! The view was incredible and the location was perfect. Easy to get to most places that we wanted to go. The condo was comfortable for myself, my husband and our two boys. We spent a lot of time on the balcony and the beds were comfortable.The grounds were beautiful! The pool was a bit small but never a problem getting a chair to sit at. The lightening was a bit dim inside for nighttime reading. We did use the beach chairs and the boogie boards (although the boards have been used a lot prior to our use). The sliding door was a bit tough to open but after using WD-40 it seemed much better. The dining room light and fan didn't work and unfortunately it wasn't fixed during our stay although it was noticed on the initial walk through. We ended up using a lamp from the closet when we ate at the table. The women we talked with at Rentals Maui was super nice and very apologetic that it wasn't ever fixed. We hope to come back to Maui and we would definitely stay here again!

Mahalo for your review! We are glad you enjoyed your stay at 311. We are sorry the fan and light did not work. We ended up replacing the entire fan/light fixture.

Charming Condo over the water
May, 2018
Crystal V. from Foster City, CA
What a wonderful place to stay! Clean large bathrooms, air conditioning, and the most BEAUTIFUL luxury ocean view. My favorite thing every morning to start my day was sitting on the cozy balcony and drinking coffee before walking out back to my own private beach. I would have liked a map of where to find my condo initially, but after a little help from a local temporary resident, we were able to find our way. The experience was exactly what we needed before prepping for my best friend’s Wedding during our stay. I would GLADLY stay there again. I wish I owned it!

Gretchen B. from Washington, DC
Awesome surprise! We booked a VRBO for the first time ever when we booked for our week in Maui. We felt very fortunate to have found this condo near Ma'aelea, the second windiest harbor in the world. It was like being in a home, with very few tourists nearby. It was a great place to read HAWAII by Michener!
Great condo

Martin G. from Spokane Valley, WA
This condo is unbelievable. Everything is updated from the kitchen to the bathrooms. This place was spotless and the indoor furniture was comfortable with tv's in the living room and bedrooms not that we watched much tv with that amazing view. The grounds are very nice with a first class bbq area. The pool is small but you can always find a spot to work on your tan. We can't wait to book it again. Highly recommend.

Overall a great place to stay. Nice and centrally located. Nice pool and BBQ area. Great beach with good snorkelling and turtles. Condo was nice and clean with great Internet and TV. Indoor furniture could be upgraded however. But would definitely recommend!

Thank you for taking the time to review 311. Glad you enjoyed your stay! Those trade winds help cool us down 🙂

We used the 2bdrm condo for a week in late Feb and really enjoyed the stay. The lanai provided sunny views of the water, where occasional whales and turtles could be seen. It was a very clean and well provisioned condo with new appliances. Will keep on the list for future visits. Slight issue is that it is located on a dead end road, so ensure you have great directions prior to arrival.
Exceeded our Expectations

Amazing view of the beach and the pool grounds! Very clean. Had everything we needed from towels, bedding, and kitchenware to sand toys and chairs for the beach.

We all agreed the condo rental is the way to go from now on. The condo was clean and had mostly everything we needed. The location was great because we had rented a car, which I would definitely recommend when staying here. There's lots of sights and shopping a short drive away. Saw some turtles and took a boat tour to snorkel and see the whales. Awesome!
Great Maui Locale

A guest from Milwaukie, OR
Lovely updated condo with all the amenities you need, including beach towels & boogie boards. The rental company staff were friendly & helpful; a starter package includes toilet tissue, laundry soap, bar soap etc. While the condo was neat & frequently used surfaces clean (counters & table tops) upon our arrival, it was overdue for a more thorough cleaning (thick dust on faux plants, wall art, fan, baseboards).

Beautiful view! Great central Maui location. Easy walk to Ocean Center, wharf, & couple of local restaurants. A car is needed to get to other island attractions. Condo grounds & pool are very nice; great beach for swimming or walking!


Good Location

A guest from Cambridge, ON
The condo was as described on the website, newly renovated, nice lay out, well maintained. Condo building well maintained in an established area. It was only a short drive to restaurants, attractions, etc.

Our stay would have been more enjoyable if the unit had proper a/c. The condo only had a window air conditioner. Although there were fans throughout the unit, the a/c could not keep the unit cool making it very hot.
Great stay for our honeymoon!!!

A guest from Seattle, WA
This is a fantastic unit with an amazing view, modern appliances, decorations and electronics, beach access, clean pool, and close to a lot of things. There was surfing available right on the door step along with turtle sightings in the month of September. We would recommend this to anyone looking for a relaxing stay with primarily retired seniors and families. We are two honeymooners in our 30's and this was a perfect relaxing stay.
Excellent

Dave P. from Olympia, WA
We stayed 11 days in this unit and found it comfortable and everything we needed for a great stay. The view of ocean from lanai is amazing. On day 3 the dryer broke and we emailed property manager and they had it repaired in less then 24 hours. Plenty of items for water activity in the closet to use, kitchen was well stocked. Comfy beds. I think the only small issue is that there is not more then one swifter cloth or mop to clean floors and deck. That was disappointing to have one swifter cloth and no mop to keep up with sand. There could be a few more towels; but we kept up with that every other day. But bring detergent with you, two loads is provided.

A guest from Camillus, NY
The condo was everything they said it would be and rentals maui was great about answering questions and helping us make the decision to stay there
It is near a marina and outside of Kihei a little but very convenient to the whole island. You would need to rent a car for anywhere on maui. The beds were called moor table but the master could use better mattress but the kitchen was great and well equipped
Wonderful stay!

Michelle M. from Auburn, WA
Our unit (#311) was great-very nicely updated and had everything we needed. I am pretty picky about hotels and condos we stay in but would stay here again in a heartbeat! Lots of beach toys, chairs and small coolers for us to use. Beach Bums restaurant down the road had great food and huge portions. Gorgeous views and great beach right in front of complex!
LOVE this place!

Karen N. from Novato, CA
We loved this condo. The location is really central and the beach is FANTASTIC! The condo itself is nicely remodeled. Very impressed.
The only thing we didn't like was the beds weren't comfortable and it needs new bedding. Otherwise, it's fantastic. We will definitely stay here again. Love it!

We loved the condo and the whole grounds. There small stretch of beach for swimming and we even had a turtle swim by.
The restaurants in the area had great food at reasonable prices. We particularly found Beach Bums a great spot for breakfast and lunch ( fish and chips ) and Porto's pizza the best you'll find anywhere.
