About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Our little piece of paradise has recently been remodeled, giving you the comfort of a brand new kitchen and bathroom with a beautiful open look.

Our condo is at a beautiful beachfront location within walking distance of shops, a farmers market, a natural market, the BEST coffee shop, and restaurants. In the Winter and early-Spring you can see the whales from the comfort of the lanai, and the monk seals and turtles are always a treat when they pay a visit throughout the year. Just 12 steps from the edge of the semi-private beach, you can float on the ocean water, see the delights of snorkeling, bodyboard, or simply catch some rays. When we first came across this condo, we were awestruck by the view.... and we know you will be, too!

This condo has one separate bedroom with a king bed along with a sofa bed in the living room that can sleep 2 extra people. There are ceiling fans, but with the blinds open on both ends, the wonderful Hawaiian breezes flow through to keep it very comfortable inside.

We are just a few short minutes to world-class golf at Kapalua and Kaanapali, and Lahaina Town is only 5 miles away. This is the perfect condo for families and honeymooners alike. We know you'll be in heaven at our condo in paradise!

About Matt Miller

We both grew up in Washington and absolutely share a love of the beach. Watching sunsets over the water, floating in the water, soaking up the sun.... that's what we love in Hawaii. Our teenage kids are no different. We are so happy to share our paradise home... from our family to yours!

Matt Miller purchased this condo in 2010

Why Matt Miller chose Lahaina

We knew we wanted a place where we would want to retire to eventually. The northwest coast of Maui is simply the most beautiful spot in the world for us. We then wanted something that was right on the ocean that was quiet with a true Hawaiian feel. When we came upon this condo we absolutely fell in love with it and the location... right on a beach, literally 12 steps off of the lanai. We have found paradise!

What makes this condo unique

We love the fact that we have a beach directly in front of us that gives us all of the unique opportunities to snorkel and bodyboard right there. There is nothing like sitting on our lanai in the early morning, sipping on our coffee or tea, watching the sun rise behind us and cast a sunny glow on both Molokai and Lanai and lighting up the ocean directly in front of us. It's simply amazing!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Your condo., # 108, was a wonderful place for us to stay while my husband went to medical meetings at the Ritz Hotel. Unit had everything we needed for the wk. (kleenex, T.P, shampoo, body lotion, soap for bathroom & kitchen, trash bags, paper towels, laundry soap, coffee filters & the refrig. had an ice maker! Being on the ground floor was SO convenient for just walking out the slider to the lounge chairs at the ocean. The gas light torches at nt. was pretty & festive. Kitchen was well stocked for cooking--I didn't do ANY--just heated up Lobster Bisque from the fish store.

Your location was perfect. Best condo. I've ever stayed in.

Thanks for sharing your wonderful home with us.

We have loved staying here in Makani Sands #108 for the last week. The incredible views are the first thing we noticed coming into the condo. Stunning! We've enjoyed being able to walk right out of the condo, across the grassy area, and right into our beach lounge chairs. The beach in front of Makani Sands is perfect. We loved walking out into the gorgeous turquoise and blue waters! Without a doubt, the most favorite part of our stay was watching the almost constant parade of sea turtles swimming in front of us. Amazing! In the condo itself, having a kitchen and washer and dryer have been great. The condo complex is older but we were looking for low key relaxation, and that's just what we got. The only improvement would be A/C in the bedroom for sleeping. We did use the box fan to cool it off a little more. Mahalo, Matt and Family, for sharing your special home with us. We hope to return soon!

Owner's Response: We are so happy to have shared our home in paradise with you! We love the beach and turtles so much as well. Unfortunately due to building regulations we aren't able to have A/C in the bedroom, but between the ceiling fan and box fan we're glad that it cools it down enough to be comfortable at night. We would love to host you again in the future!!!

Owner's Response: It is that quaint, "Hawaiian home" feel of our complex that added to the spectacular waterfront/beachfront beauty of our property that made us fall in love with it! We are so glad to have shared it with you and hope to share it with you again should you return to beautiful Maui! Mahalo!!

Beautiful views!!!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The view was breathtaking and watching the turtles swim at the beach right below us was incredible! We hope we can return to Maui again soon and would love to stay at this lovely place. Perhaps an extra fan in the living room to keep the trade winds moving throughout would be nice . It was a little warm inside when we first arrived. Thanks for sharing your slice of heaven in paradise!

Owner's Response: It was the view that brought us to call this our Maui home, too! All of the added benefits of the beautiful sea life that come through are a huge bonus! We should've had an extra fan in the bedroom closet because we always want to accommodate people during times that the trade winds aren't blowing as much. Thank you so much for staying in our paradise home and we'd be more than happy to host you again in the future!

We already booked our second stay

  • 5 of 5

I really enjoyed staying here. So much that I booked next year. I like the fact it is a smaller compound. It is near amenities but far away enough that you are also left alone. The room was clean and comfortable. I miss breakfast on the lanai and the sunsets in the evening. I have already recommended it to others.

Owner's Response: We're so glad you enjoyed your stay in our Maui home! We treasure the breakfasts on the lanai, listening to the waves hit the beach, and the beautiful sunsets every night as well... truly amazing!

Best Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 stayed in this condo during our first trip to Maui! My parents and sister were able to stay in a different condo next door. The condo was perfect! It was clean and well stocked with all the things you might need, including a snorkel set, laundry, coolers and reusable shopping bags! We had all the amenities of home but the with the BEST ocean view! The condo was comfortable with the screens and breeze and no AC. We were able to see the sea turtles right off our beach and often had the beach to ourselves. The location was easy to find and close to all the main attractions. The condo complex had a nice clean pool and bbq's to use. If you are looking for an affordable family holiday, I would recommend this place. The owners were easy to deal with and all of the paperwork, payments, getting of keys was flawless!

We are situated on a semi-private beach centrally located within walking distance of a farmers market, natural foods market, coffee shop, restaurants, and a dive shop. A short 10 minute drive gets you to historic Lahaina town to shop, dine, and catch ocean tours (whale/dolphin watching), the Lanai ferry, and fishing charters. World-class resort golf is 5 minutes away in either direction. Beautiful Napili Beach is just 5 minutes to the north and another 10 minutes past that is a blowhole of epic proportions. The airport is a 40 minute drive away in Kahului.
