About the Property
Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)
Our unit is a 2 bedroom, 2 bath condominium with a beautiful ocean view. Each bedroom has a queen bed. We have furnished our unit so we feel at home during our stays on Maui, and we are sure you will feel comfortable as well. Many of our guests return every year for their vacation. The condo comes fully furnished, including linen, bathroom towels, and beach towels. The fully-equipped, granite countertop kitchen contains a dishwasher, microwave, and washer/dryer. We have cooling ceiling fans throughout, and an air-conditioner, which we rarely use since the Hawaiian trade winds that come through Maalaea keep the temperature just right. Cable TV and DSL High-Speed Internet Access is available.
Our unit is on the ground floor. I mention this because some visitors think they get better views from higher floors. We love our view, and much prefer being able to enter the unit through the garden versus having to take elevators or stairs and a hallway every time we go to the pool or poolside barbeque, or every time we leave and return home.
Maalaea is considered by some to be one of Hawaii’s “Best Kept Secrets”. It’s central location between Lahaina and Wailea allows easy excursions to all parts of the island. The popular destination spots in Makena, Wailea, Kaanapali and Kapalua are all within a half hour drive of this small ocean front community. Walk 5 minutes one way from Island Sands to a 4-mile long beach and an extensive natural wetlands; the morning walks on this secluded beach are memorable. Walk 5 minutes the other way from Island Sands to Maalaea Village and Harbor. Maalaea Village has the wonderful Maui Ocean Center aquarium, shops, and restaurants. The Village is also a bus transportation hub for getting to many parts of the island. Maalaea Harbor is the center for boat trips that offer snorkeling, fishing, sunset cruises, dinner cruises, and whale watching. Or stay ‘home’ and, while having a cocktail on your lanai or barbequing oceanside next to the pool, watch the breaching humpback whales (November-April) or Hawaii’s talented surfers take on the challenging “Freight Train”. The sun rise over Haleakala is magical.
Two notes for visitors to Maui.
- Maalaea is a windy part of the island. While some visitors are bothered at times by the wind, the locals view this as a plus because we never have to use our air conditioning.
- Bugs are sometimes visitors to the condo. This is part of life being on a tropical island.
Maui has something to offer for everyone, and we are sure you will have a wonderful stay with us.

About the owner: Maui has been our part-time home for 20 years. Randy is retired from the computer business, and Maria has been in fashion sales and teaching. Randy is a gringo who speaks only English, while Maria is Chilean and completely bilingual in English and Spanish. We own homes in beach communties of Santa Barbara, Maui, and Zapallar, Chile; we obviously like to follow the sun. We live to snorkel, bodysurf, and golf. Since 2003, we have traveled even more than usual, including SE Asia (Thailand, Vietnam, Myanmar, Malaysia, and Indonesia), extensively around South America (Machu Picchu, Argentina, but mostly Chile), Europe (most recently Italy, Greece, Spain, England, Croatia, Prague), and around the US including Alaska, the Northwest, and the Northeast.
Why the Owner Chose Maalaea, HI, USA:
Randy's mother has a condo in Maalaea at Island Sands, and we bought the next door unit. No better place to visit Mom than Maui.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Barbequing by the ocean, and, in season, watching the whales breach or the surfer's riding the 'freight train' wave while we do it. We love having a ground level condo, being able to go thru the garden to the pool or poolside barbeque rather than using stairs, elevator, or hallway. A central location on Maui, making travel to all other parts of the island easier, while being able to return to a quiet location on the island. We love Maalaea's natural cooling with the tradewinds rather than having to often use the air-conditioner if we were in Lahaina or Kihei
