About the property

This is a one bedroom, one bathroom main floor condo which we have owned for our own personal use since 2009. We have continually upgraded the condo over our ownership. The condo is about 700 square feet with the living room, dining room and kitchen and entry way are in the great room concept. There is a huge 5 foot sliding glass door surrounded by geluoci windows on either side that open onto a beautiful ground floor lanai with spectacular hawaiian plantings and a very private grassed lawn. The lanai faces west and gets sun all day long right up until sunset.
The condo has a full size frig, full size electric stove, dishwasher and microwave hood fan...there is a large island for additional food prep. The kitchen is fully stocked with all the pots and pans and utensils you will need to prepare whatever you bring home for breakfast, lunch or dinner,
The condo has a queen sized bed in the bedroom and a queen sized pull out sofa bed in the living room. The bathroom is set up where the toilet and tub/shower are in a separate room adjacent to the sink and vanity area...so one person can be taking a shower while a second uses the sink and mirror.
This fabulous condo is within walking distance of three grocery stores big, small and convenience size. The Farmers Market on MWF am is just 2 blocks away. There are numerous great restaurants and take out food places within easy walking distance....the best fish store on Maui is right across the street. In fact, you could rent this condo and not need a car at all...take the SpeediShuttle from the airport and walk or bike (yes we have bikes you can use) or take the bus if you want to tour the island or load the bikes on The Bus and really enjoy the other towns around the island.
We have snorkels, boogie boards, beach chairs, beach towels, coolers. You really need to just bring some shorts and a couple bathing suits and you're set.
We actually have a two bedroom 2 bathroom condo at this property which is also on VRBO. We have decided to rent this unit as well. So if you have a large group or gramma and gramdpa are coming consider renting both units (they are both ground floor 2 doors apart.

Affordable. Close to Kaanapali and Napili
John is extremely accommodating. Responds quickly. The condo is fully equipped with everything you need. Down side, the air conditioning (wall unit) is located in the main room. It definitely doesn’t keep the bedroom cool enough 😭�I felt extremely hot at nights. There is a ceiling fan which helps. Lots of road noise outside the unit with no privacy since it’s a corner unit close to a main road. No ocean view at this unit!!!
The condo is close to everything. Lots of restaurants, markets, and coffee shop at mentioned in the listing. Which is nice.
There’s lots of interesting crowd of people who live on the grounds some not so friendly. Although, extremely happy with the stay. The condo was everything we needed for our family.
Overall, great experience. Would visit again.
Thank you, John!
We had a great time at Maui Sands, very comfortable and clean. Close to lots of good restaurants. We would definitely go back! Great value!
Thanks Paddy and Ricardo,
Glad you had a great time. We love this one bedroom condo it has everything you need, close to everything. Wondering why it took us 9 years to rent it when we are not there.

Clean, well stocked kitchen, great location
We loved staying at their place. John is an excellent communicator, especially when we were having difficulties booking. He provided very detailed instructions relevant to our stay.
The place was very clean. The kitchen was well stocked sans a blender and a pineapple de-corer - which we happened to bring with us. We also appreciated having the beach equipment to haul around while we explored the amazing beaches. We added a beach chair and umbrella to the collection for the next guests to enjoy. :)
The only downside was, since the corner unit was backed up to the parking lot and on a main building walkway, it lacked a lot of privacy while the window shutters were open. However, the condo is centrally located - so no complaints!
Thanks John and Wendy!
Sorry about the blender. We never had a full size one but there is a smaller one for making smoothies maybe you just didn’t find it. We have tried to have everything there after all it’s more than a vacation rental it’s our home when we are on Maui.
Wendy and I look forward to having you back soon.
Great friendly atmosphere
We had a great time. The property is very laid back with an interesting mix of guests...some owners, some long term renters, some people staying for a month some just a week. The condo has everything...pots pans plates plastic glasses for the pool. This unit has a very private lawn area adjacent to the lanai just like your own back yard. Thre are three grocery stores within walking distance and lots of shops and takeout places close by. We would love to stay a month. We will be back had a fabulous time.
Thanks for the kind words. We just installed a brand new 12000btu a/c unit should be able to cool the place off but frankly we have never turned the a/c on except to see if it still works...just trying to keep everything current and up to snuff. We would love to have you back.

Great place to stay!
I would recommend this place to anyone. John was great to work with, and was very thorough about communicating all the details before we arrived. Thumbs up for sure!
Thanks for the kind words. This condo has been my wife and I home away from home for 9 years its a great place.
Clean one bedroom condo. Great location. Lahaina is a great area to stay!
The one bedroom condo was very nice, and centrally located in Lahaina. The kitchen had all the utensils for cooking, and all the pots, pans, coffee maker, and coffee grinder.
The property has some construction work being done, but we were out all day, and it had no impact on our stay.
The neighborhood has a local grocery store and fish market.
Overall - it was a great stay!
Thanks for your kind remarks. although we have owned this condo for almost 10 years we had never rented it except to friends and family. Glad you were able to enjoy the area and the neighbourhood merchants. The fish shop located right across the street is the best one on Maui...many of the local fishermen bring their catch directly there so very fresh product.
Perhaps you will come back to Maui we would love to have you.
John and Wendy
