From our private lanai, you have an unobstructed ocean view of neighboring islands, miles of open water, spectacular sunsets, sail boats, soft breezes, turtles, dolphins and ocean waves. And, whales! If you visit between mid-December to mid-April, you will see lots and lots of whales!! You will find yourself constantly watching the ocean, so you’ll see a lot more marine activity than most other visitors to Maui.
Experience "Old Hawaiian" charm at Maui Sands. Very private. Only the boats and the whales have a view into our living room.
The spacious living and dining area open onto a large lanai to provide space to stretch out, read, relax, watch the ocean or play games in the evening. The fully furnished kitchen includes a dishwasher, microwave, refrigerator/freezer and a stove. You'll have plenty of seating for meals at the dining room table, around the bar and at the table on the lanai . We have tried to keep a vintage flavor, but for the more technically inclined, the unit is completed with WiFi, a flat screen TV, Blu-ray/DVD player, and a keypad door lock (no keys to carry around).
The unit can sleep up to five (5) guests. The master bedroom has a queen size bed, the guestroom has two twin beds and in our front room you'll find a additional twin daybed. The toilet/bath area has a door to separate sink area making it functional for larger groups.
Stroll through Maui Sands' three acres of lovingly tended, lush tropical gardens with plenty of grassy areas, tropical fruit trees, native plants and room to play outdoors. The property has a fresh water swimming pool, barbecue areas, ice machine and a coin-operated laundromat. An observation deck over looking the ocean provides a place for guests and owners to gather each night to watch the sunset while sipping on their favorite beverage.
You are just steps away from snorkeling, surfing, scuba diving, paddle boarding, wave jumping or just simply basking in the sun right in FRONT of our home. You can watch the kids play in the water from your lanai or the grassy strip along the beach. Bring your snorkeling gear, or rent from across the street. Discover the abundant sea life in the ocean waters right in front of Maui Sands. Maybe you'll get lucky and share the water with one of our resident green sea turtles.
For a change of pace, take a short walk and you'll find Honokowai Park with picnic tables, jungle gym, shade trees and a sandy beach. Your kids will love it. And, sometimes you'll find a turtle basking on the beach. Stop at the market on your way back for some appetizers to enjoy while you watch the sunset or browse through Binky's Fine Art for the perfect island-made jewelry, keepsake or gift.
You will have a reserved parking place for your car, but can easily walk to restaurants, shops, grocery stores, a fish market and a farmers' market. Maui Sands Resort is located in West Maui on Lower Honoapiilani Road between Kaanapali and Kapalua, a short drive or bus ride for you to enjoy world-class beaches, golf courses and shopping at Whaler's Village.
A few miles down further and you will be in historic Lahaina, walking through the branches of the famous Banyon tree, strolling along the marina with charter boats, taking in an evening Luaus, or just wandering through art galleries, shops and restaurants. Rent a scooter and take a drive up the coast to snorkel in Honolua Bay. Venture further to the Blow Hole or charming Kahakuloa Village for a taste of Julia's banana bread. Then, return to the quiet grounds of Maui Sands, look up to admire the stars and fall asleep listening to the gentle lapping of the ocean waves.
