Honokowai condo description

This newly renovated, end condo, on the 2nd floor, pleases and relaxes in every way. Using classic sailing vessels as inspiration, the owner renovated with custom crafted teak and beveled glass. The kitchen provides everything needed to prepare a gourmet meal for friends and family.

This is an end unit with an extra window for providing maximum benefit of the cool ocean breezes.

With extra living space on the large lanai, you can enjoy delicious meals or a superb Maui evening with wine or cocktails. We have a wonderful garden view, surprisingly private.

A low density property, Maui Sands glows with the ambiance and charm of Old Hawaii. We have 72 units in seven traditional 2-story buildings on four park-like acres. We are in the heart of Honokawai, close to delicious take-in and dine-out restaurants, as well as shopping, grocery stores, and the award-winning Farmer's Market.

              • Maui boasts a whale season from the latter part of November to mid April every year when the whales return to breed and give birth. 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! Maui is a magical place at all times of year!...moreless

                      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. One of the favorite things about this location is the Farmers Market that is a short walk away across from the Honokawai Beach Park. They hold a special outdoor produce market on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings, but they offer fresh organic produce and a deli from 7am to 7pm, 7 days a week.

                      A short drive south to Whalers Village, and further on to Lahaina brings you to great Front Street shopping and historic sights. The Historic town of Lahaina has something for everyone, from Warren and Annabelles Magic Show (some of the best close hand magic we've ever seen) to shopping and the Award Winning Ulalena show at the Maui Myth and Magic Theater. You will have no problem finding great entertainment.

                      The Wharf in Lahaina has it's share of wonderful excursions to choose from as well. We particularly like Trilogy for a day trip to the Island of Lanai. There are many sunset cruises to choose from, fishing, sailing, and whale watching trips to fit most budgets.

                      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!

                      We are within minutes of some terrific restaurants and a short drive from many many more. Ocean gear such as fishing equipment, snorkel gear, and kayaks can be rented within walking distance. There is a bicycle and scooter rental across the street.

                      Some of our favorite Island Highlights would be: traveling the Road to Hana, with waterfalls and sight-seeing around every bend: sunrise or sunset viewing from the top of our volcano, Haleakala; picnicking at historic I'ao Valley, with a short walk up to I'ao Needle and back by way of the I'ao Stream Trail, and many more!

                      Year Purchased: 1991

                      About: With a PhD in English, Diana Lopez has both a novel and a poetry book to her credit. Also a college instructor for many years at Moorpark Community College in southern California. Diana excelled at making writing not only a skill but a joy for her many students. She is one of the foremost Hispanic poets in the nation, she also delights in remodeling, design and architecture. Well traveled, she long ago chose Maui as her home away from home, and has actually lived in this, her second home for extended periods of time.

                      Why Honokowai:
                      Diana puchased this condo because it epitomizes Old Hawaiiana. Its inspirational location has proven invaluable in her poetry where it serves as a muse in the creation of her poignant poems. When on Maui she spends as much time enjoying the lovingly decorated condo, as she does the pleasures outside.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                      Too many to enumerate! At the top of her list, she places the following: The Song of the Ocean Waves and Tradewinds; The Forest of Swaying Palms; the Exquisiteness of the Hawaiian Flowers and Lush Lawn; the Proximity to Church, Favorite Restaurants, and Live Music Venues; the Beauty of the Early Morning Sunrises and the Moon Shining on the Pacific Ocean.
