Honokowai condo description

Maui Sands unit 5C. The photos represent the latest furniture and amenities in the unit. Folks, you can’t get any closer to the ocean than this 2 bed 1 bath unit. 10 feet to the ocean. Plus, since it a ground floor unit, it’s like you have a extended 10 foot long semi private grass area extending from your lanai to the ocean. Feel free to drag our lanai furniture directly on the grass. You'll be amazing at the 180 degree views of the shoreline, the sunsets every night and a double island view of Lanai and Molokai. The owners used to actually fish right off their lanai and catch reef fish. You can actually watch the whales jumping and the mothers nursing their calves as well as turtles eating off the reef from inside your unit or on the lanai!

This 2 bedroom, 1 bath modern unit has a large dining room table and a very open floor plan to accommodate up to 6 guests comfortably. Our pull out sofa sleeper sleeps two and in our bedrooms we have a king size bed and a couple twins in our second bedroom. Our kitchen is very spacious with granite counter tops and the unit has all the small appliances you’ll find at your home.

One of the best features of our condo is that our parking spot is right in front of our unit (50 feet). This makes it super convenient when hauling beach gear from your unit to the car and back.

Maui Sands Resort Location:
On the ocean in west Maui, Lahaina side of the island
Very end of North Kaanapali Beach (Honokowai area)
Between the Papakea and Paki Maui Resorts
3559 Lower Honoapiilani Road
2 minutes drive to Kaanapali, 7 minutes to Lahaina
Next door to the Honokowai beach park

Best property feature...
Walking on the beach from our property down to Kaanapali.
Maui Sands Resort is actually the very last unit that you can walk on the beach for miles all the way down to Black Rock in Kaanapali. “Walk on the beach” being the key words! Other properties might boast they have a private beach or a little cove or something but you won’t be able to take a long sunset or morning strolls more than 100 yards in either direction on the beach. It would just be too dangerous to walk on the lava rocks and cliffs from one cove to the next.

Kaanapali Beach was voted nicest beach in the US and Black Rock is one of the top three “must snorkel” places to on Maui! I personally have seen eagle rays, turtles, Hawaiian monk seals and dolphins right in front of our property. Other properties north of Maui Sands you have to actually walk on the road onto our property then walk on the beach to Kaanapali. Were talking about a 2–3 mile stretch of beach and your at one end.


Maui Sands Property Highlights:
Direct on the ocean facing the islands of Lanai and Molokai
1 assigned parking spot. NO resort or parking FEES
Four acres of impeccably maintained grounds
Large grass areas with tropical foliage and lush tropical gardens
Unheated freshwater pool (90% of pools in Hawaii are unheated)
2 BBQs and large laundry facility
Sunset views directly over the ocean. (See the green flash!)
Quiet and peaceful old Hawaiian property
Lots of open space and older tropical trees
No need to drive anywhere to snorkel swim!
2 tropical reefs right out front of property
Surf, kayak, snorkel and swim right at Maui Sands
The reefs provide a great baby beach for small kids at low tide
Walk from our property on the beach for miles towards Kaanapali
Walking distance to world class restaurants (Dukes, Roy’s, Hula Grill)
2 BBQ grills, large pool, soda machines, restrooms
Turtles eat every morning right off our reefs!

Our Beach: It moves!
Since were at the very end of a 3 mile long stretch of beach, our shoreline changes drastically depending on currents and storm systems far away. If you're staying right in the middle of middle of the 3 mile stretch of sandy beach, you're probably NOT going to notice the movement and you'll have a sandy beach all year around. But at the very end of any beach, you’ll notice the changes. By the way, right in the middle of Kaanapali Beach is Kaanapali Resort, which is a very expensive area of the island and that’s where you’ll find the Hyatt, Sheraton and Westin Resorts.

Typically during the summer months the ocean currents move the sand north towards our property and our beach grows. This is due to the increased tropical activity south of the islands. During the winter months the Alaskan storm systems push the current and the sand south towards Kaanapali and our beach comes and goes. But, a sandy beach to plant your towel down on is never more than say the property next door. Don’t’ bother asking if it’s sandy when you plan on coming because it can change drastically just overnight! It all depends on the currents and storm systems around the islands and sometimes we get effects from storm systems or hurricanes as far away as Australia and Fiji!

              No need to go anywhere! From your unit you can watch turtles every morning, see whales sitting on your couch or watch your guest snorkeling, surfing, kayaking, fishing paddle boarding right in front of your unit. Plus, the bushes are gone on the seawall now and your view is 100% better! Sand comes and goes with the surf and season. Summer times we have a sandy beach in front of your unit, during the winter the waves come from Alaska which moves the sand south of our complex. But, if you want sand in the winter, just walk 100 feet down the beach! The sand moves and we cannot predict if their will be a sandy beach during your stay!

              Year Purchased: 2006

              About: please enjoy our vacation rental. We tried to make it like home!

              Why Honokowai:
              We recently decided to rent out our 'home' to vacation renters so that we could spend more time with our grand children on the mainland. We lived in it for 2 years before recently deciding to rent it out in the vacation rental market. The difference between our condo and other vacation rentals is that ours was our 'home' and it will feel like home to you! We only rent it out on a limited basis so please check the online calendar for rental opportunities!

              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
              You can walk all the way to Kaanapali Beach and Black Rock ON THE BEACH! Take romantic hour long strolls during sunset and at keep your eye out for the florescent animals in the sand! Every condo's north of our property you have to walk on the street first then walk thru our complex to go to the beach and walk to Kaanapali. Directly across the street you'll find a scuba and snorkel shop for all your beach rentals but, don’t forget, this unit has boogie boards, towels, beach bags and umbrellas! Also located across the street you’ll find the 'Fish Market', Okazua Deli and Pizza Hut. 100 yards south you’ll find an 'ABC' (Convenient) store for any last minute necessities. Just past the ABC store you’ll find a outdoor shopping mall which has a grocery store, a Maui Dive Shop, a local(s) bar and a Mexican and Italian restaurant. You’ll also find a Jazz bar called Java Jazz. It’s a combo Jazz/Wine Bar, Coffee Shop, Fine Dining Restaurant which features wonderful live jazz music nightly.
