You might enjoy taking a daily stroll along the shoreline of Maalaea Bay. The sandy beach begins at Haycraft Park (about 200 yards from our building) and extends east all the way to Kihei (approx. 4 miles). The shoreline is all natural, no buildings until you reach Kihei. Most of the time Maalaea Bay is calm enough for swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, and boogie- or paddle--boarding.
About Sue and Mort Mortenson
Aloha. We are Mort and Sue, retired teachers who live near Chicago. Although we aren't able to come to Maui as often as we would like, every trip is filled with as much excitement as the cruise that introduced us to this marvelous island. Whenever we come to Mort's Port, we spend at least 50% of our time working to improve our home-away-from-home. We strive to make our unit feel as comfortable and look as appealing (in an island kind of way) as we possibly can.
Sue and Mort Mortenson purchased this condo in 1994
Why Sue and Mort Mortenson chose Maalaea
Kanai A Nalu is a beautiful, centrally located condominium on Maalaea Bay. The street is relatively quiet, unlike many vacation rentals in nearby towns that have constant traffic whizzing by. We like the building being all-concrete construction and well situated near the ocean. It's also nice to be so close to the harbor, restaurants, and shops. [Note: Some may be closed due to health and safetly concerns.] In the winter months, the condo is a great vantage point for seeing whales frolicking in the bay. Turtles are present year-round., occasionally sunning themselves in the sand below the condo courtyard.
What makes this condo unique
Ours is one of the 16 oceanview units that face straight out to the water, 12 of us above ground level. That means that we have a fantastic view of the ocean, both from inside the unit and out on the lanai. Since the straight-out facing units have more lanai space than those on an angle, we are able to provide a spacious table that can accommodate every guest with nobody having their back to the ocean. Sitting on the lanai and gazing across the courtyard to the beautiful bay is close to being addictive.
