Who would have guessed sleepy little Ma'alaea Village would become Maui's hottest condo market in 2023? Ma'alaea Mermaid #201 is the only FS unit currently available in Ma'alaea & the price has just been reduced again by the motivated Seller! At 700 SF with a 52 SF lanai, it's the lowest $/SF FS 1B/1b in South Maui, the largest 1B/1b unit available in Kihei & Ma'alaea under $1.5M, the 2nd lowest-priced ocean-view 1-bedroom FS condo listed in South Maui and in the 3rd youngest building! Mermaid end-stack floor plans are unique: 3 to 8% larger than the other 1B/1b units, no walkway outside the bedroom window but with both a bathroom & kitchen window meaning more room, privacy, ventilation & light. Renovated with durable modern stone-look tile throughout (+ lanai), brand new range, granite kitchen & bath counters, maple-style kitchen cabinetry, smooth ceilings (no popcorn), bedroom ceiling fan & a large window to the lanai replacing the original dark wood louvers. The bathroom door is a masterpiece: framed in hardwood, a single translucent glass pane forms a silent poem with a delicate bamboo painting inspired by ancient Chinese brushwork. The bamboo & tropical foliage etched-glass tub surround carry the theme, transporting you to another place and time. Ma'alaea Village, quiet, convenient & centrally located, is Maui's best-kept secret..."The Mermaid" is across the street from Maui Ocean Center (our world-class aquarium), Ma'alaea General Store and the restaurants & shops of the Ma'alaea Harbor Shops. UPDATE: New Starbucks Now Under Construction! Sited directly on a working harbor, there is always something interesting going on, with whale-watching topping the list (in season.) "Freight Trains" surf break commences just outside the harbor; Maui-born pro surfer Kai Lenny said of the already legendary 7/22 swell "It was a dream come true to surf this wave that has to be one of the best in the world." A rare opportunity to own a premier unit in the only fee simple residential (no vacation rentals) condo complex in Ma'alaea...You will love it here!
