Property description

Maui Sands unit 1D is a family friendly, air conditioned, ground floor, modern, 2 bedroom 1 bath unit located on an direct ocean front property in west Maui. Snorkel, catching small fish, swimming, surfing, kayaking is just a 30 second walk from your unit.

The unit has been recently remodeled and features granite counter tops, crown molding, a newly tiled shower and customized stereo speakers built right into the ceiling. Wonderful for families because it's loaded with books, toys for toddlers, board games and random snorkel gear.

Enjoy eating on our large dining table on the lanai surrounded by the lush tropical gardens and palm trees. The unit overlooks the pool and garden area of our ocean front property and your large lanai doors open right up to the tropical garden and pool area of the property. The pool, gas BBQ, ice machines, soda machine, picnic tables and the property 'library' are all within 100 feet of this unit!

Imagine relaxing on our shady lanai, sipping a cocktail and listening to your kids laughing while playing in the pool or trying to catch small gecko’s in the tropical plants just off you lanai. All while your significant other BBQ's dinner at the pool and socializes with other friendly guests.

This unit comes with high-speed wireless Internet, cable TV and a full kitchen to cook all your favorite meals. Washers and dryers are located on the property.

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!
