Honokowai condo description

Ohana means Family and Hale means Home. This is a perfect family vacation home!
Maui Sands is a lovely property that epitomizes that 'Old School' Hawaiian feel. We have beautiful grounds with mango, banana and a myriad of tropical plants and flowers blooming. The property is low density with 72 units sitting on a little under 4 acres, with a shared pool.

The real gem of the property is the Pacific Ocean View. We sit on a stretch of oceanfront facing the Island of Lana'i just to the south, and Moloka'i across the channel for one of the more spectacular sunset views on the island of Maui.

Our shore has three volcanic reefs running parallel to the shoreline, providing a mini snorkeling/swimming channel 4-7' deep, perfect for viewing our parade of turtle up close! The inside of the 1st reef is perfect for smaller kids to build sandcastles at low tide, and play in the water, as the reefs serve to protect our narrow stretch of sand from the rougher high tide surf.

A short 3 minute walk to the north brings you to Honokawai Beach Park, with a playground. To the south is the Honolua Kai Park and a fabulous beach walk going all the way to Whalers Village and Black Rock.

Ohana Paradise Hale at Maui Sands has two comfortable bedrooms, one with a queen-size bed, and the other with two twins. Both bedrooms have ceiling fans to keep the cool evening breezes moving. There is a queen size sofa sleeper in the living area as well with an overhead fan for comfort. One of the best things about being this close to the ocean is being able to fall asleep to the sounds of the ocean waves.

The kitchen has been beautifully refurbished with cherry cabinets and granite tile. It is fully loaded to cook a holiday meal or provide snacks through the day. There is seating in the dining area and on the lanai for meals and enjoying the view.

The large lanai runs the full length of the condo for both ocean and garden views!

Outside the second reef, and inside the third, is a wonderful labyrinth of lava nooks and crannies that provide great snorkeling!...moreless

                      Car: Recommended

                      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 brings you to Whalers Village for shopping. 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.

                      Year Purchased: 2013

                      About: We are from Elk Grove, CA. We purchased our condo in 2013. Of all the Hawaiian islands we have visited, Maui has always been our favorite.

                      Why Honokowai:
                      We both recently retired and have made frequent trips to Hawaii and decided it was time to have our own little paradise on Maui. We stayed at the Maui Sands and love the location and like the 'Old Hawaii Style' beachfront resort.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                      The Honokowai neighborhood shops and restaurants are great and we love being just a short drive to Lahaina town and Ka'anapali Beach. We hope that you enjoy your stay at our home away from home in Maui.
