About Judy

Joe and I were married in 1960 as teenagers. As a child I dreamed of going to Hawaii one day but never thought I would make it let alone have a place of our own there. Our first trip to Hawaii was in 1974. Over the years we spent time on all the islands but always went back to Maui. Maui no ka oi (Maui is the best)

Judy purchased this condo in 1990

Why Judy chose Lahaina

We vacation rented at Sands of Kahana when it was still under construction. We loved the views and the spaciousness of the condos. We loved the area, the quiet and the location half way between Kaanapali and Kapalua. It was a dream come true to finally own there.

What makes this condo unique

In front of the condo we can see sea turtles pop their heads up and swim along. To the left we can watch surfers from our lanai and to the right, on windy days, watch wind and kite surfers. When the whales are there you can watch them without even leaving the condo. At night the moon over the ocean is breathtaking and we can constantly hear the ocean waves. As many times as I've been there, I still get excited even seeing ads about Maui.

The large lanai with two lounge chairs plus the spectacular view both north and south was amazing.

  • 4 of 5

I chose this condo because of the location, the large lanai and the view. You can see the islands of MolokI and Lanai from the lounge chairs. If you want to eat outside, there is a four person table. On the second day, I asked my husband if he'd seen a turtle yet and he had not, so I looked down from the lanai and a turtle was swimming up the shallow part of the surf, right past people standing in the water. The kitchen is well stocked (although the only thing I cooked were hard boiled eggs---hey, I was on vacation) and the bed was comfortable. We opened the doors and listened to the surf all night. We drank our coffee and read the news on our I pads each morning.

The restaurant on site was fine and a great view of the ocean. We found Dollie's bar and grill across the street had good food and we ordered a take out pizza from here that was really good. The best dinner was at Merriman's and if you want to watch the sunset, reserve early. We went at 5:00. The Hulla Grill and many water side restaurants in Lahaina were good.

We found Snorkel Bob's a helpful place. We brought our own gear, but they gave us a paper showing places to snorkel Our favorite was Old Airport Beach at Kaanapali by the Weston.

We did three excursions: Molikini snorkeling, private tour to Hana and the Blue Hawaii helicopter ride to Molokai. All were good.

I did not give this a five rating because the bathrooms and a few pieces of furniture need updating, but in my opinion, this is minor. The condo was immaculate and we were able to meet Nani, the housekeeper. We did not have Wifi on the first day and she came and resolved the problem right away. Judith, the owner, responded right away to my emails about the problem and contacted Nani for us.

This was our first visit to Hawaii and we hope to return to this condo during whale watching season.

Couldn't ask for a better place to stay. We hope to go back. Rooms are very large and condo is right on the beach with a fantastic view from the balcony. The restaurant on premises is great too. Ate breakfast there every day. We loved the whole experience

Amazing Condo!

  • 5 of 5

We just arrived home from staying for 7 days! Where do I start... the view is breathtaking and the condo is stocked perfectly for anything you want. Had chairs, boogie boards, floats, ice chest. Etc. The beach is walking distance and the restaurant and bar downstairs is just perfect. The beds were heavenly and we will be back! If you want a central location with it all, pick this condo!

Great place to stay

  • 4 of 5

This place has the best views, period. It has 2 rooms with balconys and can hear the waves even when the doors are closed. Place is a little outdated, but all works, has plenty of towels and many beach boards, tubes, cushions and more chairs. There is places to grill downstairs and a great restaurant for this venue. Saw dolphins and many giant turtles. Can also see two other islands from here. Was beautiful and so relaxing.

Amazing stay!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is the best condo we have stayed at in Maui. From both the guest lanai and the main lanai, the ocean view is breathtaking. We could watch sea turtles swim in the water from the lanai.

The condo is so spacious- we were with another couple and had more than enough privacy. Both bedrooms feel like master suites with their own large bathrooms and lanais, so there were no hard feelings when choosing a bedroom. Both of the beds were large and very comfortable.

Having a full kitchen was great to cook some meals at the condo and eat out on the lanai. There was also a very large dining room table to eat at inside.

Lastly, the grounds of the condo and the beach &pool are great as well if you don't feel like leaving the property every day.

This condo feels like a home away from home- can't wait to come back. Communication was easy,fast,&pleasant with the host.
