The Knowles

Aloha from the Knowles – Luke, Maisie, Isabelle and Joelle! We own the Tropical Paradise and Ocean Dream villas at Ma’alaea Surf Resort on Sugar Beach in Kihei, Hawaii.

We live in Colorado when we’re not spending time at our vacation home in Kihei. Some of our favorite things to do as a family include snorkeling, swimming, tennis, soccer, watching movies and playing board games.

We fell in love with Maui on a two-week Christmas vacation. While walking along Sugar Beach every day we were amazed at how majestic Ma’alaea Surf Resort was. This low-density property was built in 1973 on over 5 acres of beautifully landscaped oceanfront grounds.

There are only 59 units in the whole property. As a family that plays tennis we also liked that the property has two beautiful tennis courts. We were lucky to find that there was an amazing townhouse condominium that had recently been completely renovated for sale. By the time we left the island we were under contract to purchase the unit, and later purchased another.

We welcome you as guests into our vacation homes and hope that you will love them as much as we do.

What we love about Ma’alaea Surf Resort
Luke: “I love that Ma’alaea Surf Resort has a Polynesian feel to it. It looks like the Hawaii I see in my mind. It’s not a cramped six-story hotel.”

Maisie: “I love that we are just a few steps from the beach.”

Isabelle: “I love that we can walk to Ululani’s Shave Ice every afternoon for a snack.”

Joelle: “I love the beautiful sunsets.”
