Sleep Just Steps From the Ocean!

Bedrooms 2
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 1 - 4 nights


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 Wailuku

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)

OK Unit

  • 3 of 5

While centrally located to see much of the island, the unit is in need of a facelift and some TLC. Extremely dated and a bit worn. Is the best I can say. It was nice to watch whales from the lanai but overall a less than average place.

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.
