Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

Beautiful 2 bedroom, 1 bath, Direct Oceanfront Condominium. This unit is as close to the spectacular Maui ocean as you can get!

From December through April, enjoy a perfect vantage point from the Lanai for viewing the arrival of the humpback whales making their way between Maui and Molokai in the Pailolo Channel. Other times, watch the spinner dolphins dance by and the tropical fish dart about in the reef or even green sea turtles pop their heads up in the early morning.

With the expansive sliding glass door open, the extra wide living room/dining is an extension of the 24 foot wide Lanai where you can enjoy the enticing views and the beautiful sounds of the ocean waves that are music to the ears. View the most spectacular sunsets Maui hast to offer right from the Lanai. With the doors closed a hush descends and air conditioning cools the room to your selected temperature. Lanai is furnished with a lounge chair, 4 chairs and table.

Decorated in Hawaiian-style with lots of rattan, the colors of the room reflect the surroundings of sea and sand. A queen sleeper sofa, matching chair with ottoman, along with accompanying tables and lamps provide comfort and convenience. In addition, cable TV, DVD player, CD player, and VCR are available to enjoy after spending a day exploring the nearby attractions or more of the island of Maui.

At the Maui Sands condo, you can dine inside at the kitchen counter, at the dining table for four inside or on the Lanai - each with views of the ocean and sunsets. Dining oceanfront on the Lanai is a treat where you can enjoy a dinner with a spectacular sunset directly in front of you. After dinner you can enjoy a walk on the beach your friends or family.

The kitchen of this condo at the Maui Sands has been recently remodeled with beautiful oak cabinetry. The granite countertops provide an elegant backdrop while you relax at the bar stools and enjoy pupus and perhaps a Mai Tai. The kitchen is fully-stocked with the appliances, utensils, and cookware needed to prepare a meal for six and includes new appliances, a range, refrigerator, microwave, toaster, coffee maker and blender.

Create you own meals with beautiful dishes and glassware. Bright, natural lighting provides ideal illumination for meal preparation and, of course, since the kitchen is open to the living room and dining room, there are the ever present sounds and beauty of the Pacific Ocean.

We also provide free Wifi for our guests.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is an unbelievably perfect place. The combination of the suite itself, the beach below the lanai, the shops in the neighborhood and the general lazy ambience - it's perfect.



We moved in easily-quick trips to the ABC down the road, or a teany bit farther walk to the farmer's market accross from the park - even the full size Times market is a short walk.



Some advice to future guests

1- buy 4 liters of POG at the ABC and save your receipts so you can cash them in on mugs and suuvenirs when you leave.

2-Better to rent a snokel kit from Boss frogs accross the street. Only $9.

3-We took the Four Winds II from Maalaea to Molokini and it was exactly fabulous and pretty reasonable prices.

4-Buy corn Tamales from the Latin deli next to the farmers market.

5-Beware of overpriced beans at BassAssCoffee

6-Aloha Mixed Plate in Lahaina is awesome

7-And last - probably the best days you'll spend here will be spent right here on this beach-snorkel the second reef-it's great

A little slice of heaven.

  • 5 of 5

This condo was just perfect for our family of four. Having both A/C and a washer/dryer was so convenient and the kitchen had everything we needed to prepare our meals during the week. It also came stocked with beach chairs, a cooler, boogie boards, snorkel gear, and binoculars for whale watching. This place had it all. Thank you so much for opening your home to us.

This is the place if you want a turn key OCEAN FRONT condo! So close it's like your on a ship!

  • 5 of 5

Maui Sands is a super laid back ocean front condo complex! Beautiful grounds full of palms, hibiscus, and plumeria with a pool and decks that overlook the ocean. The condo itself is ridiculously close to the water with the best sunsets anywhere. No matter what fun activity you do each day make sure to make it back to the condo for sunset! The owner is friendly and easy to communicate with. The unit had all of the amenities you need for however long you plan to spend in paradise. Lots of conveniences and fun beaches and activities are super close by. We would definitely return again!

Breathtaking views.....

  • 5 of 5

Our first time in Maui and this cozy condo is where you want to be. The views from the lanai are spectacular....My husband and I sat out on the lanai every morning and evening to watch the sunset. The condo is perfect and contains everything you need (plus a few extras-cooler, chairs, board games, and lots of towels). Laura is amazing and a pleasure to deal with. We plan on returning in 2-years with our 3 kids, so they too, can experience this amazing place. Laura and Jeff, thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us. We loved and enjoyed everything about it.

Perfect for our family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Maui Sands 4E between June 6 and June 12, 2017. There were two adults and two 12-year-olds in our group and the condo fit our needs perfectly. At the end of our trip we decided when we return to Maui we'll definitely stay there again. The condo is exactly as depicted in the photos. The complex is well maintained and the condo itself has nice upgrades. The views from the lanai and windows were perfect. We used the lanai shades daily because the sun gets quite warm in the afternoon. We preferred to leave the windows and screen doors open, but there is an air conditioner if you would prefer to have it cooler. We stopped at Costco after we arrived and purchased food for the week. The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare our meals, including dishes, tupperware, and a variety of spices, dressings, and other items that past renters left behind. There are also several great restaurants across the street, including the taco place and the deli. There is a grocery store and several restaurants just down the road. Our kids loved Slappy Cakes for breakfast, but be forewarned it has a wait if you arrive after 9. The condo also has coolers, chairs, a sun shade, games, and water socks available. Overall, this was perfect for our family. The owner, Laura, was great to work with as well. She was very responsive to our questions. The onsite manager was helpful as well, answering questions and assisting us when someone parked in our parking spot one evening. We cannot recommend this condo enough. We only wish we were still there!

Slice of Heaven, AWESOME owners

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 10 days with our children and their grandmother. It was so beautiful and comfortable. Laura was AMAZINGLY responsive, helpful, and patient with all my questions. We all loved the view, particularly the evening turtle sightings, sunsets, group sitting area outside, grass/grounds where kids played, and of course the pool. We would definitely come back! Thanks for some great family memories!
