About the property

1br/1bath, sleeps 4, elegant, clean, comfortable, and newly renovated

Come rejuvenate in our oceanfront condo! On your private Lanai/porch listen to the waves, enjoy watching turtles swim, and gorgeous views of Haleakala and Kahoolawe. Native Hawaiian canoes also race In winter time you can watch the whales come in to calve and teach their young to swim and play. Island Sands has a private beach for you to enjoy snorkeling, surf, kayak, paddleboard, fishing, or swimming with the turtles. Enjoy stunning sunrises and sunsets over Mt. Haleakala, and full moon shimmering on the ocean framed by swaying palm trees. Relax by the pool, or in our lovely condo with our guest amenities, and go home refreshed with the Aloha spirit of our condo.

The condo was renovated December 2014 and has all new furnishings and kitchen equipment, granite counters, ice maker in the fridge, a large pantry, and small appliances. There is also a washer dryer combination unit in the kitchen which works like a charm. New dishes and glassware make entertaining or cozy dining fun. You also have a pillow topped queen bed with luxurious sheets, and a couch with memory foam mattress for a great sleep listening to the waves roll, if you prefer to have guests stay. Flat screen Blue Ray TV and DVD/CD in the living room, and boogie boards and snorkel equipment await you on the lanai. Dimmer switch lighting, high boy table and chairs create a great view of the ocean and romantic ambiance for outdoor dining on the lanai. Bathroom has marble vanity, and lovely walk in shower.

Island Sands has barbecue grills for outdoor cooking, and tables in the pool area for gatherings, an outdoor shower, and a car washing area. It is located within walking distance of several good restaurants, which are across from Maalaea Harbor where you can go out on dolphin and whale watching excursions, sunset cruises, or snorkeling/diving adventures. Maalaea is centrally located in Maui so it is an easy drive to great places to explore such as the Haleakala National Park, Haiku/Paia ( wind surfing and other water sports), Ulapalakua local winery, Lahaina/Kaanapali and Keihei for shopping and night life, Kahului for the Maui Cultural Arts Center and more.

About Bridget Bongaard

Jim and I love to entertain and meet people from all over the world. We have travelled to Europe, China, India, Fiji, Tanzania, while living in North Carolina but when we came to Maui, we realized the beauty and rejuvenating power of this lovely island and it's people. We would like to share the Aloha with you by 'sharing our home' at #410 Island Sands.

Bridget Bongaard purchased this condo in 2014

Why Bridget Bongaard chose Wailuku

We came to Maui and fell in love with Maalaea. The Island Sands Condo building is stunning, being literally right on the ocean with a private beach, the grounds and pool were so well maintained and the location was so convenient to most of the fun activities on Maui. When we first walked in the front door of the unit the view of the ocean and palm trees stopped us in our tracks. We couldn't believe the beauty and serentiy of the view, and bought the property though it had not been renovated in many years. We gutted the unit, put in all new furniture, appliances, kitchen and bath to restore it for maximum comfort, and serenity. We especially love the outdoor living with the private lanai, with high boy furniture that allow you to see the sweeping views while having a meal or cocktail. We added adjustable lighting at night for an intimate dinner or drinks. Pure magic.

What makes this condo unique

The sleeper sofa has a tempurpedic mattress for maximum comfort and the waves lull you to sleep in this bed. The master bed has a queen sized luxury mattress and pillows with 600 thread count sheets to give a sweet sleep. Air conditioning, cieling fans are rarely needed with the cool breezes that flow through the home. The kitchen has all new appliances, with microwave, and a terrific washer dryer unit. The granite bar seats 4 and adjacent to the kitchen, allowing great chats when meals are prepared in the kitchen, and is perfect for buffet type parties. Flat screen TV in living room, and CD/DVD player for home entertainment. Boogie boards for body surfing, beach towels, are there for instant fun at your private beach.

Beautiful. Condo

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful updated condo with gorgeous East facing view of the ocean. A gorgeous beach is just a few minutes away and it is just a couple blocks from the Pacific Whale Foundation as well as a couple restaurants and shops yet away from the crowds. A lovely stay!

Great location, amazing views and wonderful hosts!

  • 5 of 5

Bridget and Jim have thought of every detail for you to enjoy your stay on Maui!

First we were greeted with Champagne and chocolates to celebrate our honeymoon!

Second, the amenities were perfect, from Tupperware to boogie boards and everything in between.

Third, we had a hiccup with the cable and Jim came right over and made sure I was able to watch the Patriots game!!

Fourth, we saw sea turtles everyday from our balcony and even saw whales!

Lastly, there wasn't one detail overlooked. My wife and I enjoyed our stay immensely. It was our best vacation ever!

Mahalo Bridget and Jim!

We can't wait to come back

The condo was well maintained and clean. Would have liked AC in the bedroom b/c of the humidity.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the location- near just about every place we wanted to visit. The proximity to Sugar Beach was terrific & allowed us long morning walks every day.

Simply Outstanding

  • 5 of 5

We really loved this condo. It was a perfect choice for my wife and I. The views across the bay were fantastic and we enjoyed watching the turtles everyday.

The condo was exactly as pictured and was fully stocked with everything that we needed. Bridgette and Jim even had champagne and chocolate waiting for us when we checked in to help us celebrate our anniversary.

We thought the location was perfect for day trips to all of the wonderful sites around the island.

We had a question in the evening of our check-in and Bridgette responded with 2 minutes. Outstanding service!

Beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful view , comfortable condo. The condo is well stocked with little extras. Got in very late after 12 hours of traveling woke in the morning to see a bag of coffee sitting by the machine. Little details like this made us smile the whole time we were there. Definitely would recommend this place and can't wait to come back

The winery is about 45 min drive but worth exploring as part of an Up Country Tour.
