A true hidden gem in Ma'alaea! Oceanfront unit with unobstructed ocean views from your living room couch. Incredible ground floor location with a small sandy beach that's a favorite turtle stopover literally steps from your lanai. Directly outside of your unit is a grassy green lawn leading to the ocean access pathway. The complex layout makes it quite secure and due to the location of rocks fronting Ma'alaea Banyans, accessing the beach section is limited. Ma'alaea Banyans boasts a swimming pool, hot tub, BBQ area and surfboard/kayak storage. Walking distance to nearby restaurants and entertainment options day or night, including Ma'alaea Harbor, Maui Harbor Shops and the Maui Ocean Center. This unit has been upgraded with fresh paint, a new dishwasher, new water heater and new bathroom vanity, sink & fixtures. A room a/c in living room and a free-standing a/c unit in the bedroom are included. As the primary residence for the owners, there are low property taxes with the home exemption. That could continue for another owner occupant who qualifies for the home exemption, or it could be used as a second home or investment as long-term or short-term rental. There are only 78 total units in the complex.
