Honokowai condo description

Hawaii Tax I.D.'s W48514342-01
(I do not advertise on Craigslist)

Aloha!
Relax on the lanai and listen the ocean while sipping on your morning coffee or Mai Tai at sunset! This ground floor, corner condo unit is only about 60 feet away from the water's edge. Screened, Louvre windows allow you to enjoy the tropical breezes, especially nice being a corner unit. For the past months guests have enjoyed the ambiance of the thoughtfully appointed unit and the reviews and guest book speaks for themselves! We enjoy many compliments on the decor and how wonderful it is to have everything one needs to feel at home. Part ocean and garden views, sounds of the surf, mature tropical plants all add to the wonderful ambiance of Maui Sands, a less commercial and more like a local place to hang your sun hat.
PLEASE CHECK OUT THE VIDEO!
We are a professional contractor/developer and interior design couple.
The condo has just undergone a full remodel: cool ceramics, granite and sea glass mosaics. Attractive dark tropical rattan, island florals and designer touches make this a place with one mission in mind...relaxation!

Watch the wales from the observation decks along the ocean, swim in the clear water or walk 200 feet up the tidal beach to the wider sandy beach with it's cool green lawn & shade trees, also, family friendly with a little playground park for younger children. Great tide pooling, snorkeling and fishing. Low tides leave lagoons behind and expose the two flat reefs which are home to turtles and marine life. Or, relax around the large pool situated amongst the lush gardens.

The condo comes equipped with: beach chairs, beach towels, umbrella, snorkels, boogie boards, picnic cooler bag & ice chest & some picnic supplies.

Close to Historic Lahaina(5 minute drive) and it's restaurants, bars, shopping, art galleries and historic sights. The Pacific Whale Foundation's whale watching tours set sail from Lahaina(well worth joining & getting the discounts on bookings). Whalers Village is another hot spot for good food and high end shopping. Within walking distance of the condo you have a super market, Farmers Market and deli, snorkeling, bike & board rentals, casual dining, sandwich chain, coffee, ice cream, gift shops and convenience stores.

Beaches to the north and the south! An eight minute walk away:a wonderful path takes you past preserved, low dunes and large resort grounds along the famous, picture perfect Ka'anapali Beach. Ka'anapali Beach Park has plenty of parking, lawn & BBQ's. Dukes Beach House for happy hour awaits for you there and for the sports fans... what better place could you be...surf, cocktails & touch downs!

The interior has been put together with you (and ourselves in mind) we want you to enjoy your home away from home! A fully stocked kitchen, all brand new stainless appliances, granite island and a table setting for up to four.

The master has a brand new queen and the room offers a cool peaceful place to rest your head while listening to the ocean.

The compartmentalized bathroom has undergone a full make over with ceramics and mosaic stone detailing and brushed steel fixtures. The tub/shower/toilet is separate from the granite vanity area.

In the closet you will find two fold away beds and linens, beach chairs, umbrella, boogie boards, snorkels, ice chest, a cooler picnic bag and beach towels.

We hope that you will consider our little piece of paradise and also think of it as yours too!

Many mahalos!

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2011

                  About the owner: I am an interior designer and work along side my husband who is an amazing, gifted contractor. We upgraded & did a full remodel on a great corner unit with ocean & garden views. We love Maui and call it home.

                  Why the Owner Chose Honokowai:
                  Location! I love the ocean and to be on a piece of property so close is wonderful! There are very few places that are built so close, complete access to the water & no crowds. You can be the only person in the surf!

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  Whale watching, turtle watching, sometimes dolphins, swimming between the reefs, enjoying being at home on the lanai and hearing the ocean and feeling the breezes. Close to amenities but feel away from it all... best of all no crowds!
