Named for the Mala Wharf roadstead where a string of pretty boats anchor offshore, this older condo complex offers compact, individually owned units. It’s located on the northern end of Lahaina, away from crowded downtown, but just down the street from Lahaina Cannery Mall, Old Lahaina Luau, and several terrific restaurants. One- and two-bedroom units benefit from full kitchens, oceanfront lanais, and a seaside pool. The drawbacks: Bedrooms face the road, which can make nights noisy, and some units lack air-conditioning (it can be boiling hot in Lahaina). I’ve listed one property manager, but a quick Internet search will turn up others.
