About the property

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

Rent this BEAUTIFUL, OCEAN FRONT condo for a great stay on Maui. Solar panels on our roof are continually producing energy for Maui's electric company, making us the only green building in the area.

Centrally located between Kihei and Lahaina, our condo is only a 20 minute drive from the airport. Maalaea is a tranquil area close to the marina, aquarium and great dining. Our condo has a very private lanai 20 feet from the water where you can sit and watch the whales and turtles while enjoying your morning coffee or favorite tropical drink.

Within walking distance you will find beaches for swimming and snorkeling in the warm Pacific Ocean! The aquarium and a bird sanctuary are practically next door. When conditions are right, surfers flock to our area to try their luck on the Maalaea Pipeline and can be watched from the Lanai.

Every week Island Sands has ALOHA FRIDAY with FREE COFFEE AND DOUGHNUTS down by the pool. Everyone is welcome to come, enjoy, and meet other guests and residents.

Tourist activities can be booked at the front desk of the condo.

About The Owner

We love our condo, especially our wonderfully private lanai where we seem to have the ocean all to ourselves! It is centrally located, close to the airport, shopping, and tourist activities. Our little bit of Heaven in which to relax!

The Owner purchased this condo in 1989

Why The Owner chose Central Maui

We bought this condo because of it's central location in a beautiful, quiet area.

What makes this condo unique

One of the best things about our condo is you don't have to go anywhere to see whales, birds, surfers, turtles, geckos and mountains. They all are waiting for you right off the Lanai

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have kept busy every second! We enjoyed watching the island celebrating the arrival of the New Year from the lanai. The view is beautiful and entertaining!! (whales, seals, boats and surfers)

Great ocean views!

  • 4 of 5

It is a nice ocean front property with beautiful views of water! Enjoyed our short stay. The owner is very nice & caring. She was very responsive to our questions and followed up very well. The unit was well equipped & clean. The property manager was very informative & a nice person. We managed to see all the Island & the attractions in two & half days. There were nice restaurants near by. We had great lunch at the Sea World Restaurant; with great ocean breeze and views. Definatly will recommend to friends & family.

Great place - great vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. The condo is very nice with a lovely view. Good space for our adult daughter, my wife, and me. It came with all the little things- trash bags, TP, soap, etc. The management people are helpful. Its a short walk to a couple of restaurants, a couple of small stores, the harbor with all kinds of excursion boats, and a fishing pier. And the aquarium.

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this condo. It was everything stated in the description and more. It was clean and the owner was very helpful if we had questions. Although there was a set of binoculars at the condo, we were happy we brought another set as the whale watching off the balcony was amazing! We were within a short driving distance of many nice restaurants and beaches. We would highly recommend this condo.

Whale of a Time

  • 5 of 5

Loved the location - central to all of Maui.

We watched whales by day and stars by night.

It was nice to walk to the Ocean Center for whale watches with the Pacific Whale Foundation, food and shopping.

I would go back here and recommend it to friends.

An Escape from Seattle Rain

  • 5 of 5

'Twas a wonderful escape from reality! Beautiful sunsets from our very private lanai, sleeping with the

lanai door open so we could listen to the sound of the ocean, fun restaurants within walking distance, or fixing dinner in the very well-appointed kitchen,all made for a delightful vacation. The fantastic sunny

days, the short walk to access the long, sandy beaches and the central location to explore the many

attractions of Maui (a car is necessary to really appreciate the many sights, especially the drive up to

Haleakala.) We hope to return !
