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

Little bit of paradise with a million dollar view

  • 4 of 5

Two bedroom, one bath condo in a great Maui location. Close to Lahaina and within walking distance of local restaurants. The best feature however is the view! It doesn't get better than this. Walk down the stairs and you're at the beach. There's also a great balcony to have a cup of coffee in the morning and watch the sun rise. The grounds are beautiful and well kept and feature a nice seating area/deck to watch the sun set in the evening. There is also kitchen that is well stocked with dishes, pots and pans, and anything you need to prepare a home cooked meal. Highly recommend! Thanks Laura and Jeff!

FANTASTIC!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time in Maui and we could not have asked for a better location!! The photo on the profile for this property is exactly the view that we had every day. The sound of the waves and the refreshing breezes are what I miss the most. The two-bedroom condo was perfect for our party of 5. It is in lovely condition with a very nice kitchen open to the living and dining area. The bedrooms were spacious and had tv's in each. We were able to do our laundry. There were plenty of towels, water socks, boogie boards...pretty much whatever we needed we had. Location was great as we were very central to grocery stores, restaurants, etc. The pool was nice and clean. We really could not have asked for more!

A great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week in Maui and this condo was perfect for us! It was a great find for location and value. The complex in general is dated, but the condo itself is upgraded and very comfortable with everything we needed. But the best part was the incredible view and being right on the ocean! Literally steps to the water. The owner was very attentive and quite helpful! I would highly recommend this condo! I'm already planning for a return visit sometime soon!

Perfect vacation spot with a beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time staying here for our week long vacation in Maui! The view from the lanai was incredible, we could see turtles swimming on the reef while we drank our coffee each morning. The condo is comfortable and well stocked with anything you can think of. We bought groceries when we first got there so we could cook most of our own meals and when we were feeling lazy there were plenty of restaurants walking distance away. We will definitely stay here again the next time we take a trip to Maui!

Phenomenal location right at the ocean!

  • 5 of 5

There are few words that can describe the incredible experience of waking up and falling to sleep with the sounds of the surf just outside the lanai doors! This very comfortable condo contains all of the necessary amenities for a wonderful vacation. There are few locations that could rival this one for its ocean view and access!

Unbeatable view, old building

  • 3 of 5

The condo is in an excellent location with an amazing view! We saw whales every day & sea turtles. Great snorkelling! The pics are an accurate representation of the unit, although they are old. There is no longer the slatted overhang on the lanai & there are roll down shades which provide shade. The building is quite old; the exterior is rotting & paint is peeling off & flakes. This is not reflective of this unit, just all of Maui Sands. The grounds, pool & BBQ are all maintained & clean. Inside the unit everything was clean also. There was extra pillows, beach towels, boogie boards, water shoes, beach chairs, cooler which really is great. Some things are showing their age like the blinds, carpets, patio furniture. We had some disappointments. I couldn't get the stereo to work. The microwave also didn't work for the 2 weeks we were there. A note was on the microwave stating the problem was known but they weren't able to install the new one (as its a hood fan combo) as it was drywalled in at the edge. No further contact was made to me regarding this. We just didn't have use of it for 2 weeks. The window AC is in the living room & is on a timer (maybe 1 hr only). It isn't able to cool the entire condo. We left all the windows open & the ceiling fans going as the breeze was good most days. The bedrooms can get hot as the fans cannot be increased beyond a low to medium setting. The internet is fast enough to stream Netflix. BUT we were extremely frustrated when the password wouldn't allow us to access it on our final morning. From when we woke up at 7am to 11am check out the password kept being rejected as incorrect. This caused problems as we weren't able to check our flights or FaceTime our family (to wish them a Happy Easter). The same problem occurred the previous Sunday but wasn't a big deal as we were half way through our trip & were able to connect again later in the day. I assume they do some reset when people are leaving but this should not be done until after 11am. The other major issue I feel people need to be aware of is the pest control spraying done throughout all units. There was a notice posted to every unit that pest spraying occurs inside each unit on a bi-monthly basis. They enter each unit to spray & you need to vacate during that time. Luckily this was scheduled for the week after we left so it didn't effect us. Just be aware. I think price is reflective of building age. We are happy enough but will go to a newer property next time.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay and were able to enjoy the whales and the beautiful views from our condo. While we try to keep our condo running as smooth as we can, just like home, some things do breakdown. We didn't replace the microwave while you were there so as not to disturb your vacation. The microwave has since been replaced. The wifi passwords are not changed between guests so I am not sure why you could not access the internet. Glad you were able to use it for most of your trip. The buildings at Maui Sands are true Hawaiiana, and because they are so close to the ocean, they do receive frequent maintenance. The current schedule is for all buildings to be painted and repaired at the end of April 2016, working around guest vacation schedules as much as possible. This schedule is at the control of the Maui Sands HOA. Next visit, please feel free to call our on-island contact that is provided in your check in instructions. They can provide prompt support. Thank you for your time and feedback. It is very valuable and helps keep our condo as wonderful as possible. Aloha
