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.

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

Stunning lanai view complementing a cozy apartment unit

  • 5 of 5

The apartment (and the lanai view!) looks exactly like the pictures displayed online. Stunning!

The owners were very thoughtful in their accommodations; everything that we need are stocked from paper towels to slippers. The decorations in the bedroom and the living room provided a cozy setting that made us feel at ease and comfy.

Not to mention this is definitely the ideal central location if you are planning to visit different parts of the island for your stay.

Definitely made a great impression for my first trip to Maui! Mahalo, Bridget and Jim!

Excellent Condo

  • 5 of 5

Your property was even better than our expectations. The view was fantastic and we always looked forward to our morning coffee on the balcony enjoying the sea turtles and then again in the late afternoon Jim and Bridget immediately got back to us whenever we had a question. It was a memorable trip due in no small way to our lodging.

Amazing stay, views, and service!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I booked our first trip to Hawaii and were so excited to begin the adventure on Maui. Unfortunately, the first place we booked to stay fell through about a week before we left, and that property owner worked with Bridget, who in turn worked with us, to help book this amazing property.

All I can say is WOW to the view! It is truly amazing - you get a great view of sunrise and sunset and the water is directly below. There is a small private beach, but we preferred the views from our balcony. Every day we saw several sea turtles swimming, feeding and coming on to the beach, which was breathtaking. There was also a great view of the Molokini Crater on a clear day.

The property was clean and the right amount of space for two people. The appliances and furniture are all up to date. In the kitchen, there was a bottle of pineapple champagne waiting for us. The washer and dryer unit worked perfectly and was easy to use for us, since we wanted to only bring a carry on for our nearly 10 day trip. The bed was SUPER comfortable, and Bridget left us some island favorite Macadamia nut chocolates to go with our champagne. There were also a plethora of maps and guide books, and the unit guide binder was incredibly helpful for us to find places to eat. The unit and building are quiet enough for you to go to bed and wake up to the sounds of the ocean, and you couldn't ask for a better, more peaceful retreat! We will definitely stay here again on our next visit!

Your condo is in a very central location and about 15-20 minutes from most amenities, and other adventures can be found on Maui within a 30 minute drive. The winery is about 45 min drive but worth exploring as part of an Up Country Tour. Famous windsurfing town of Paia, is delightful, and most water sports can be done in Maalaea, as well as Kihei nearby. The famous Mamma's Fish House is a sure treat for old Hawaiian dining, and you are right at the Maalaea harbor where you can go on dinner or snorkeling cruises. There is all kinds of adventure and fun on this island, and your condo is perfectly located to make these an easy 1/2 day or day trip.
