We call this condo The Tree House. This is a very comfortable large one bedroom condo, on the second floor, with a wrap around lanai boasting both a garden and mountain view 75' from the ocean. The lanai is nestled amongst the plumeria and palms, with plenty of outdoor seating for relaxing or dining al fresco. The ocean view is peek-a-boo, but this property has an abundance of beautiful old Hawaii landscaping. plumeria, hibiscus, palms, coconut, and a magnificent big mango tree.
The kitchen is well appointed with everything you will need to prepare any meal.
Serenity was the idea when it came to decorating the bedroom. There is ample room for a roll away or crib rental as well. One of our favorite features of this condo is the jacuzzi bath. Relax in the tub and listen to your favorite Hawaiian tunes on the iPod docking station.
There is a three person maximum for this condo, but there is ample room in the bedroom for a Pack N Play, single futon, or queen size air mattress. There is an additional charge for rollaways and cribs. We do have a futon for one, or a queen size air mattress as well for no additional charge....moreless
iPod dock, jacuzzi bathtub, wrap around lanai with tons of seating.
This unit is perfect to snorkel, paddle board and kayak right off the shoreline!
There are three volcanic reefs that run parallel
to the shoreline. During low tide, the inner area, between the seawall and the first reef is perfectly protected for keiki to play in the water and build sand castles. Between the first and second reef, the water is between 7' and 4' deep, perfect for swimming with the turtles and enjoying a morning swim. Outside the second reef, and inside the third, is a wonderful labyrinth of lava nooks and crannies that provide great snorkeling!

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.
Year Purchased: 2006
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.
This condo was a second purchase at Maui Sands. We love the serenity and peaceful feeling of this condo.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: Whales, Whales, Whales! We have a unique ocean eco-system with a series of 3 reefs that house some great critters for snorkeling, and a monk seal that visits our reef often. This unit is perfect to snorkel, paddle board and kayak right off the shoreline!

This is one of West Maui's first condo resorts, and it really captures the essence of old Hawaii Aloha!
