Honokawai is located on the Northwest shore of Maui, with views of the islands of Molokai and Lanai across the channel. Maui Sands epitomizes old school Hawaii ambiance. This is a low density property, with beautiful grounds, including mango and banana trees. We are a very easy short walk from some lovely beaches and a Honokawai park. There are many good local restaurants, a large grocery store, two farmers markets, a health food store, a coffee shop and some great spa facilities, all within a 3-5 minute walk.
A short drive south to Whalers Village, and further on to Lahaina brings you to great Front Street shopping and historic sights.
North towards Kapalua there are 3 more championship golf courses, as well as fabulous beach walks and mountainside hiking! Nothing like a sunset view from the side of a volcano!
From roughly November to April we have migrating whales who come to Maui to mate and give birth to their calves. Binoculars are provided for watching whales from the dining table, the lanai, or the observation deck.

About: A visit to my Maui Home is a Slice of Paradise. I am a retired airline attendant of 33 years. I want you to love my home as much as I do, and make it your home while you are here.
Why Honokowai: We loved the access to the ocean front. We are close to a grocery and health food store that does a farmers market several days a week.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: Whales, Whales, Whales! We have a unique ocean eco-system with a series of 3 protected reefs running parallel to the shore, that house some great critters for snorkeling, and a monk seal that visits our reef often.
