What We Love About 3933 Ma’alaea Bay Place
I feel especially honored to be representing this property for sale as it is owned by the family of one of my best friends growing up here on Maui. Patrick Holland (my friend and co-listor) and our friends have shared a lot of spectacular memories at the Bay House together. I sure feel lucky that I experienced it as a teenager/young adult and am very grateful to be helping my friends in moving on toward their next stage of their lives.
The real question for this property is – what’s not to love?
160 Ft. of Direct Ocean Frontage & Easy Access to the Water
For those of you unfamiliar with oceanfront property on Maui, this is a very large amount of frontage compared to other properties for sale and is a clear point of distinction. This home couldn’t be more well designed; stretching the length of the shoreline with many huge windows in each room welcoming the best of Maui into this distinctive residence. You feel intimately connected to the ocean in somewhat of a boat-like setting, but with an incredibly comfortable and refined interior setting.
There is a well-constructed stairwell that leads down to the shoreline for easy access to SUP, kayak, swim, or dive. Patrick and I learned how to stand up paddle here on the water fronting their home. There was one time that we were out there and all of a sudden it started lightly raining but it was still sunny out, a huge rainbow emerged, and the surf out front picked up a couple of feet out of the clear blue. It was one of the most memorable surf sessions I have ever had in the water and is just one of the many reasons that make this place so spectacular.
Stunning Haleakala, Kahoolawe Island, Ma’alaea Harbor, & Ocean Vistas From Every Room
This great room redefines the open concept for living, dining, food, and timeless memory creation – and can you imagine a better setup to celebrate Thanksgiving or Superbowl Sunday?
A 10′x5′ solid monkeypod/mango kitchen island that is only rivaled by the one which this residence lives upon is beautifully accented by mango cabinetry, exotic granite slabs, wine/drink mini fridge, GE induction cook top, and GE monogram stainless appliances. Patrick’s mom is one of the best bakers I know and she loves her double ovens. I don’t mind doing dishes at all with this view…would you?
Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner with a View
Looking for dinner guests? Shouldn’t be too hard with this setup. A 20ft. span of Fleetwood sliding glass doors disappear, the pacifying sounds of the ocean appear, and seamless transition emerges outdoors to the ipe wood lanai.
The ‘ipe wood lanai area with copper and teak railing poles serves as your own boat platform sensually connecting you to the Pacific (minus the stomach uneasiness). Turn starboard, turn port side – it couldn’t be better than this.
From this vantage point, watch Maui awaken as the sun rises, the maunalei (light cloud cover in the form of a lei) dissipates revealing Puʻu ʻUlaʻula (red hill), which is the zenith of Maui at Haleakala’s mighty summit, the verdant slopes of Upcountry Maui, and all the way south to soft sandy shores of Makena. To top it off, directly below this lanai there are a group of 10-15 Hawaiian green sea turtles that can be regularly seen grazing and smiling up at you as you do in return to them.
The Ocean Soothes You To Sleep & Invigorates You As You Awake
Three of the four bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms each with their own distinctive elegance and all with perfectly framed views. A custom mango wood staircase railing leads upstairs where French doors welcome you into the spacious upstairs master bedroom with warm natural light, open beam ceilings, and many glass windows inviting the outdoors in. On the western end of the home there are two private lanai areas off each bedroom (upstairs and down) that afford relaxation and whale watching.
The very suiting ensuite master bathroom has a floating Koa and mango vanity, a travertine shower with glass accent tile and river rock floors, a jacuzzi tub, and views to die for. There is also an energy efficient sized washer and dryer.
4 Miles of White Sandy Beach Walking
The Bay House at Ma’alaea is a 1-minute drive from Ma’alaea Harbor (boat slips and commercial fishing and touring ventures), several shops, and restaurants (Ma’alaea General Store has great sandwiches and coffee, Beachbums for BBQ, Saltimbocca for Italian). Also here is the Maui Ocean Center Aquarium, and perhaps most desirably is the white sand beach you see above, which stretches from Haycraft Beach Park in Ma’alaea all the way to Sugar Beach in North Kihei.
It’s a Wrap…
The Bay House blends Bailenese fusion with island contemporary style – ohia poles compliment the sturdy exterior, which is finished by imperial plaster on the entire exterior all of which is housed by a cedar shake looking monier tile roof with copper end caps on the rafters.

Beneath the garage is the secluded one bed/one bath 400 sq.ft. guest home equipped with a full bathroom, a slate outdoor shower, outdoor jacuzzi, and the awesome deck pictured above. Finishes include: slate flooring, imperial plaster walls, new lighting, and air conditioning. Direct ocean access is from where you see the palms down a stairwell to your ocean playground.
