Location Location Location! Perfect Maui Ocean Front location. Walk for miles on Maui's longest beach. Enjoy an easy stroll to nearby Maalaea Harbor and Maui Ocean Center. Shops and restaurants are also highly walkable especially Seascape Restaurant and Beach Bums Bar and Grill. Centrally located to major island tourist attractions in Lahaina, Wailea. Wailuku, Kahului and Upcountry.
