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 52 units sitting on a little under 3 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 Honokowai
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.

Condo was just as pictured and expected. Great location. Fully stocked and equipped, and we appreciated having the portable crib and high chair for our baby.
Some things to note:
- Parking is only convenient for one vehicle, as they give you an assigned stall. Street parking in this neighborhood is tough.
- The beach directly outside the condo is pretty much non-existent, however there is a nice beach area and park just a couple minute walk down the road.
- No a/c in the bedrooms, only 1 window-unit in the living room.
No complaints and we enjoyed our stay. We checked out in a rush as our baby was sick and had to be taken to urgent care (she recovered quickly thank goodness), and I left her baby blanket in the condo. Our host was so kind to meet me at our new place we were staying in Kihei and return that precious item. First class service!
We had a wonderful stay. The condo was equipped with everything you need, from cooking to having fun at the beach. Heather managed the rental process flawlessly and was available anytime we needed her. We hope to be back very soon!
We'd love to have you again! Thank you for taking very good care of the condo!
Everything we needed and more!!
I was so impressed with everything that was available in and around the condo! Ice chests, binoculars, fully stocked kitchen etc...
We loved our stay , this will be a great memory for Mom.
Girls trip 2018!
We're so happy you enjoyed your stay! Good to know we had what you needed on hand. Please come stay with us again!
Perfect Retreat! Felt like home in paradise!
The unit was clean and well stocked with amenities. We loved the decor! Its great to have the water so close and hear the waves at night. Loved going down and having coffee each morning and sunset each night on the patio. Perfect swimming and snorkeling between the reefs. The low key complex is great and walking distance to stores. Love the Poke from Maui Fish Market and shopping at Farmers Market. Thanks for the stay! We will be back!
We are very happy you enjoyed your stay! The Farmers Market poke is a favorite of ours as well!
I hope we see you back again soon!
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.
Glad to see you enjoyed your vacation with us again!
Perfect location and views.
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.
We'd love to have you stay again, and as I have lived on Maui for over 23 years now, I would be thrilled to help you find a perfect restaurant or activity during your next stay!
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.
