A magical transformation was just completed at Opal Seas. Please see the stunning view photos taken from the upper master suite at Opal Seas of Baby Beach, the Pacific Ocean, and Lana`i Island. All of the photos of Baby Beach and other nearby beaches are also current and realistic.
In all of Maui island, there are very few homes that are set directly on a sandy beach, and Opal Seas is one of the very few homes with that rare pedigree. Step out of your comfortable ocean front home right on to a soft sandy beach which is encircled by an ancient reef. The area was formerly known as the Queen`s fishing pond. The waters of Baby “Pu`unoa” Beach are forever calm and clear, thus the nickname “Baby Beach” where babies, toddlers, children and adults can all swim and soak in shallow warm waters.
Opal Seas faces west, and throughout the year crimson and scarlet sunsets are viewable from this vacation home. After the sun sets, the moon rises and blankets the offshore waters in a stunning silvery glow. During whale season, this is the place to be! Sit up on the covered veranda outside of the master suite, and gaze out over a vast expanse of beautiful azure blue ocean. Whales may very well pop up every few minutes, putting on one of the best shows on earth.

Upstairs we feature a European import double hammock on a cypress wood stand that accommodates 2 guests for afternoon naps. Between the upstairs and downstairs levels, there are 6 reclining chaise lounge chairs, a dining table for 6, a game table for 4 upstairs, and three separate outdoor sofas.

The lazy and quiet residential neighborhood near Opal Seas is reminiscent of Hawai’i of a bygone era. Relax on the covered veranda and whale watch all day long, or gaze at one of West Maui`s scarlet sunsets or silvery moonsets. Grab the beach chairs, coolers, towels, and umbrellas provided for your day on the beach – right in front of your own home! Hungry for lunch or a drink? Your home is just steps from the water`s edge. There is a gas BBQ grill, along with a convenient ice maker and beverage fridge by the pool outdoors.
At Opal Seas there is an ocean front heated swimming pool and poolside hot tub, central air conditioning, home office with high speed wireless internet service, a fully equipped kitchen with espresso machine, wine fridge, and a gas range. There is a second kitchenette in the upstairs master parlor, and a large built-in BBQ by the pool.
Each room in Opal Seas has a television, many of which are new flat panel televisions with Dish Network and an unlimited NETFLIX account. Other state-of art electronics include DVD players, iPod docks, and more. Of course there is also a state-of-art wired and wireless high-speed internet service at Opal Seas.
The kitchen is very well equipped, with a full array of supplies and equipment, including an espresso machine, coffee maker, coffee grinder, and many other luxury grade amenities. Grill up fresh island fish at the large built-in gas grill.
Opal Seas At Baby Beach was crafted with superb attention to detail, and trimmed and furnished with the extensive use of marble, polished limestone and plush carpets. High ceilings and the abundant use of floor-to-ceiling glass walls accentuate the aura of spaciousness and enhance the beautiful ocean views. Need to do business while on Maui? Work in the private office room with a printer/scanner/copier/fax and office supply, television, CD/DVD, iPod dock, sofa, and a desk that faces the swimming pool area.
The master suite takes up the entire second level of Opal Seas. It has a King bed and an additional queen sleeper sofa along with a large private bath with 2 WC, deep soaking tub, separate double marble shower, dual vanities, and walk-in closet. You enter the master suite through a separate private parlor room that is equipped with a rocking arm chair, a new sofa, TV, DVD, and a kitchenette. It is closed off from the sleeping suite, so if a guest wants to stay up later or wake up earlier than another, there is a private area in which to relax. We equipped the kitchenette with everything you may need to make coffee, tea, or to warm up a snack or toast pastries. There is a fridge for beverages and a warmer/toaster oven too!
