About the Property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps 4 with partial ocean view

Ocean front- Maui Sands is Ocean Front property, with a spectacular view of the islands of Molokai and Lanai. The seawall and the observation deck perched above it are literally 30 steps from your front door! You will enjoy the fresh clean air and stunning views while listening to the constant crash of the waves against the seawall.

Ocean View- There is both a garden and partial ocean view from the condo, framed by swaying palms and fragrant plumeria trees.

Additional Location Information- 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 trees.

We are a very easy short walk from some lovely beaches and Honokawai park. 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 with free samples on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings, but they offer fresh organic produce and a deli from 7am to 7pm, 7 days a week.

A short drive south to Whalers Village, and further on to Lahaina brings you to great Front Street shopping and historic sights. The Historic town of Lahaina (once the capital of Hawaii) 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 along with snorkeling, 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.

Some of our favorite Island Highlights would be: traveling the Road to Hana, with waterfalls and sight-seeing around every bend: sunrise or sunset viewing from the top of our volcano, Haleakala; picnicking at historic I'ao Valley, with a short walk up to I'ao Needle and back by way of the I'ao Stream Trail, and many more!

Property description
Description- This newly renovated, end unit condo, on the 2nd floor, pleases and relaxes in every way. Using classic sailing vessels as inspiration, the owner renovated with custom crafted teak and beveled glass. Art work in the unit reflects old Hawaiiana style. The kitchen provides everything needed to prepare a gourmet meal for friends and family.

This end unit provides an extra window for maximizing the benefits of the cool ocean trade winds.

With extra living space on the large lanai, you can enjoy delicious meals or a superb Maui evening. We have a wonderful garden view, surprisingly private with a peekabo view of the ocean.

A low density property, Maui Sands glows with the ambiance and charm of Old Hawaii. We have 72 units in seven traditional 2-story buildings on four park-like acres. We are in the heart of Honokawai, close to delicious take-in and dine-out restaurants, as well as shopping, grocery stores, and the award-winning Farmer's Market.

Bedroom Details- Garden view picture window, with a new super comfortable queen size bed! There is a television and a Blue-Ray/DVD player with Netflix also.
Bathroom Details- Separate vanity area for privacy. Well lit, This bathroom boasts custom teak and tile. Roomy step-in shower!
Kitchen- Beautifully appointed with upgraded stainless steel appliances and solid teak cabinets, fronted with beveled glass. Features a large island for preparation and dining.
Parking- This unit comes with one free off-street parking space.
Living Area- Large, beautifully-appointed, comfortable living area with ample seating and a queen sleeper sofa/chaise for additional guests. A large 48" TV with Netflix on it is also here.
Communal Pool- Large, newly renovated sparkling pool!
Has cabana and BBQ with ample seating for a poolside picnic!
Deck/Patio- The property has a very large observation deck over the sea wall with gorgeous views of Lanai and Molokai. We love watching the whales from here during the season!
Lawn/Garden- Maui Sands has some of the best and most mature gardens in the area!
Additional Info- Maui boasts a whale season from the latter part of November to mid April every year when the whales return to breed and give birth.
This unit is perfect to snorkel, paddle board and kayak right off the shoreline! The property resides within the Kahekili Marine Reserve which is one of 3 conservation zones on the island of Maui.

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 is a magical place at all times of year!
