Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 6

Ohana means Family and Hale means Home. This is a perfect family vacation home!

Maui Sands is a lovely property that epitomizes that 'Old School' Hawaiian feel. We have beautiful grounds with mango, banana and a myriad of tropical plants and flowers blooming. The property is low density with 72 units sitting on a little under 4 acres, with a shared pool.

The real gem of the property is the Pacific Ocean View. We sit on a stretch of oceanfront facing the Island of Lana'i just to the south, and Moloka'i across the channel for one of the more spectacular sunset views on the island of Maui.

Our shore has three volcanic reefs running parallel to the shoreline, providing a mini snorkeling/swimming channel 4-7' deep, perfect for viewing our parade of turtle up close! The inside of the 1st reef is perfect for smaller kids to build sandcastles at low tide, and play in the water, as the reefs serve to protect our narrow stretch of sand from the rougher high tide surf.

A short 3 minute walk to the north brings you to Honokawai Beach Park, with a playground. To the south is the Honolua Kai Park and a fabulous beach walk going all the way to Whalers Village and Black Rock.

Ohana Paradise Hale at Maui Sands has two comfortable bedrooms, one with a queen-size bed, and the other with two twins. Both bedrooms have ceiling fans to keep the cool evening breezes moving. There is a queen size sofa sleeper, with a NEW mattress and pullout mechanism in the living area as well with an overhead fan for comfort. One of the best things about being this close to the ocean is being able to fall asleep to the sounds of the ocean waves.

The kitchen has been beautifully refurbished with cherry cabinets and granite tile. It is fully loaded to cook a holiday meal or provide snacks through the day. There is seating in the dining area and on the lanai for meals and enjoying the view.

The large lanai runs the full length of the condo for both ocean and garden views!

About Heather Buono

We are from Elk Grove, CA. We purchased our condo in 2013. Of all the Hawaiian islands we have visited, Maui has always been our favorite.

Heather Buono purchased this condo in 2013

Why Heather Buono chose West Maui

We both recently retired and have made frequent trips to Hawaii and decided it was time to have our own little paradise on Maui. We stayed at the Maui Sands and love the location and like the 'Old Hawaii Style' beachfront resort.

What makes this condo unique

The Honokowai neighborhood shops and restaurants are great and we love being just a short drive to Lahaina town and Ka'anapali Beach. We hope that you enjoy your stay at our home away from home in Maui.

We have an on-island agent to help ensure our guests stay is comfortable.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Mahalo you for letting us stay here. It's really nice here. We love it.

We love going to the beach and seeing all the fish. It's very nice. Holly loves sitting on the middle chair at the table near the cooking area.

Notes:
We keep on hand everything you need for a day at the beach of a picnic! Plenty of beach towels, beach chairs, and coolers!!! We have an observation deck, built out over the seawall for whale watching and spectacular sunset views! This unit is perfect to snorkel, paddle board and kayak right off the shoreline! There are three volcanic reefs that run parallel to the shoreline. During low tide, the inner area, between the seawall and the first reef is perfectly protected for keiki to play in the water and build sand castles. Between the first and second reef, the water is between 7' and 4' deep, perfect for swimming with the turtles and enjoying a morning swim. Outside the second reef, and inside the third, is a wonderful labyrinth of lava nooks and crannies that provide great snorkeling!

Maui Sands

Excellent place to stay if you want to be right on the water near Kaanapali

and Lahaina, but not in a large high rise hotel.

Perfect location and views.

  • 4 of 5

This was my 6th time to Maui and the first time I've stayed at Maui Sands and I would definitely come back again to stay. The condo had everything one would need for a relaxing vacation. The location is great for sightseeing, beach combing and snorkeling with the turtles. The only thing missing was a concierge for help in finding that perfect place to eat or a special sight to see. Can't wait for my 7th trip to the island.

Absolutely perfect for our family of 5

  • 5 of 5

Aloha,

This property is just as described, beautiful grounds, great 2 bedroom condo that accommodated our family of 5 wonderfully. Steps from the beach that our kids had a great time playing in at lower tide times, and a beach park just a couple minutes walk down the beach. Also a nice large grassy area outside the unit that is also great for kids. The pool area is also very clean and kid friendly.

Would definitely come back to this condo for a longer stay, one week was definitely not enough !!

Excellent stay!

  • 5 of 5

My young family and I had a wonderful, 3-week stay at this condo in April 2016.

There are many benefits to the Maui Sands complex itself, including the reef-protected beach that is mere steps from the property. Our two girls (3 and 1) had a fantastic time exploring the beach during low tide - mere steps away. It was convenient to walk along the beach to the nearby park to the north where the playground was. Or, we would spend time at the Maui Sands’ pool (which we typically had to ourselves)! It's a great pool with nice supporting facilities (bathrooms etc). In addition, the condo association would host get-togethers on Friday evening, which were open to condo guests as well. It added a community feel that was very appreciated!

The complex is quite unique in how low density it is. There is a good amount of green space - great for the kids to run around with in while we would take in the sunset at the observation deck. There is a path that meanders through the centre and is perfect to stroll along with children. The laundry facilities onsite are substantial: 6 washing units and 10 dryers (get quarters from Times Supermarket, FYI).

Regarding the condo, it was of a perfect size for kids of this age: plenty of space. It was quiet and very, very well stocked in every way: kitchen equipment, recreation equipment etc. There is a substantial amount of beach equipment including noodles, chairs, a boogie board, water shoes, etc. The kitchen has been very nicely renovated and overall, the condo is quite well appointed. The AC was definitely nice to have, as it was warm some days.

The proximity to the nearby convenience and grocery stores and restaurants was truly a lifesaver.

The support from Heather during our stay was very appreciated. The booking was professional and stress-free. We hope to stay here again.

Staying here for 3 weeks was just so easy in every respect. The only problem was how quickly the time went by.

Owner's Response: We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay at Maui Sands! This is truly a great spot for kids, and you are so right that the low density and open areas make for a very relaxed atmosphere. We'd love to have you back again!

Great Location - Maui Sands

  • 4 of 5

Our family of four very much enjoyed our stay at the Maui Sands. The condo was very clean and well appointed and offers plenty of room for a family of 4. The complex was quiet and very family friendly, and Heather was very helpful. The location was also ideal, very close to all amenities; walking distance to Boss Frogs, restaurants, grocery store and the local farmers market. Only a short drive to Lahaina Town and Kaanapali Beach (we love snorkeling and hanging out at Black Rock). This unit offers a partial ocean view from the lanai. The only reason I didn't rate it 5 stars is it doesn't have a full/direct ocean view. We are used to hanging out on our lanai watching whales and turtles, but in this unit ended up spending more time on the observation deck a short walk away.

Highly Recommend!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this condo, in fact we are STILL talking about how perfect it was for our vacation. My husband and I and our two children invited my Mom on this vacation, as Maui has been her dream vacation since she was a child. Heather was extremely helpful when suggesting the 'must see' sites as we didn't want to miss a thing. My Mom has some health issues and Heather was mindful of that when offering the many things to do. The condo and its location was absolutely perfect. The view of the ocean and watching the whales from the observation deck or our balcony was gorgeous. The swimming pool, BBQ, laundry is all within a short distance and was very clean and well maintained. The market, shops and restaurants were a short walk away. The condo was very well stocked with more than one might need, including the beach items out on the deck. Another nice touch I found was the journal of information that past guests wrote in to share their experiences. We took in some of their suggestions as well. It was truly perfect. We can't wait for our next Maui vacation, to rent this condo and say hello to Heather again.

Honokawai Beach Park north, Papakea Beach south
Car: recommended

Honokawai is located on the Northwest shore of Maui, with views of the islands of Molokai and Lanai across the channel. Maui Sands epitomizes old school Hawaii ambiance. This is a low density property, with beautiful grounds, including mango and banana and coconut trees. We are a very easy short walk from Honua Kai Beach and park to the south & Honokawai Beach park to the north.

There are many good local restaurants, a large grocery store, two farmers markets, a health food store, a coffee shop and some great spa facilities, all within a 3-5 minute walk. One of the favorite things about this location is the Farmers Market that is a short walk away across from the Honokawai Beach Park. They hold a special outdoor produce market on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings, but they offer fresh local organic produce and a vegetarian deli from 7am to 7pm, 7 days a week.

A short drive south brings you to Whalers Village for shopping. Further on to Lahaina brings you to great Front Street shopping and historic sights. The Historic town of Lahaina has something for everyone, from Warren and Annabelles Magic Show (some of the best close hand magic we've ever seen) to shopping and the Award Winning Ulalena show at the Maui Myth and Magic Theater. You will have no problem finding great entertainment.

The Wharf in Lahaina has it's share of wonderful excursions to choose from as well. We particularly like Trilogy for a day trip to the Island of Lanai. There are many sunset cruises to choose from, fishing, sailing, and whale watching trips to fit most budgets.

North towards Kapalua there are 3 more championship golf courses, as well as fabulous beach walks and mountainside hiking! Nothing like a sunset view from the side of a volcano!

We are within minutes of some terrific restaurants and a short drive from many many more. Ocean gear such as fishing equipment, snorkel gear, and kayaks can be rented within walking distance. There is a bicycle and scooter rental across the street.
