About Leslie M. Smith

Born and raised near Seattle, WA. I set out in 1981 on what was meant to be a 1 year adventure to Maui. 32 years later, I’m still here and very proud to call Maui my home. I have been a top producing, full time Realtor for 25 years with a vast knowledge of the island and the island lifestyle. I am blessed to have had such a successful career and attribute much of my success to my genuine love of the business. The most rewarding aspect of my career is helping my clients live the dream of owning real estate in one of the most spectacular places in the world. A married Mother of 4 girls, I spend my free time carting kids around, running marathons and working with non-profit organizations such as the Maui Academy of Performing Arts. Giving back to the community that has been so generous to me is an important part of my life.

I look forward to the opportunity of putting my real estate expertise and island knowledge to work for you, but more importantly I look forward to welcoming you to this beautiful island.

My unit has been on VRBO since 2004; however, just this year I have taken over the booking of the unit and therefore, now shows as as a recent member.

Leslie M. Smith purchased this condo in 1989

Why Leslie M. Smith chose Wailuku

Here are a few comments from previous guests:

July 2010

This condo is exactly as shown in the pictures. The view from the lanai was beyond amazing. This unit is very clean, spacious, & worth every dollar. We stayed here with our children 3 & 5, the pool was an excellent spot for them. The condo was quiet and peaceful (once our kids were asleep ;) , and the locals at this complex were so nice and great with our kids. Leslie was very accommodating, and provided anything that we needed. The cordless phone needed to be replaced, and before the end of the day a brand new set of phones were dropped off. If you come with kids, the Maui Ocean Centre is just down the street. There is also a great beach within a 2 min. walk away. Our family is so glad we choose this unit, it couldn't have been anymore perfect!!! Thanks Leslie.

June 2010

We stayed here for our 25th wedding anniversary to have a memorable time and that we did. This condo matches the pictures and description perfectly. It is a good location to travel throughout the island and walk the long sandy beach. There is even a reef right out front of the condo to snorkel and see the ocean fish and turtles. We had an amazing time that we will not forget.

Very nice!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed three nights in this condo and it fit our needs perfectly. As soon as I walked on the balcony, I saw turtles right in front of the condo. Every time we sat out there, we saw turtles...fantastic! We picked this condo to be close to the airport, Maalaea Harbor, where we were taking a snorkeling trip and the proximity to the Road to Hana. We walked to the harbor for dinner one night and drinks another night. Plenty of towels and beach items. Although we wished our stay in Maui was longer, we loved it! Mahalo!

Wonderful Beach Condo!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay on Maui in this condo! You are right on the beach, and wake to beautiful sunsets every morning. Each evening from the balcony we saw sea turtles close to the shore. The condo was updated and as clean as can be. There were several beach chairs, towels, and equipment for use. We were close to the aquarium and in the middle of the island for easy driving to different towns. The air conditioner is only in the living room, but it stayed cool enough when we had the windows open.. And could hear the waves at night. The kitchen is fully equipped. The owner was wonderful to work with as well. No complaints, just rave reviews from us!

Turtles and Whales, the view...oh my!!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay in Maalaea at Island Sands. We were a group of 5 with a couple, two teenagers and my Mother, we fit nicely in the property and found the location perfect for us to access the island. The condo is clean and nicely designed and we spent hours each day at dawn and dusk watching whales and turtles right outside our door. The beach nearby was quiet and perfect for the family and the pool was nice for quiet afternoons and BBQ meals. Leslie was fantastic! We had a few issues that were fixed very quickly and with exceptional service, she took care of us, even providing us another optional condo space while we waited for our flight home. We rented bikes from South Maui Cycle and toured a lot of the island from the condo, the location is perfect to access all the main arteries and we were able to walk to the marina for our trip on the water. You definitely need a car, parking was allocated and the property is taken care of.

We had heard that it was windy but we had only light winds and saw many paddle boarders in front of the condo everyday. We recommend heading toward Kihei and joining the outrigger canoe club for a morning paddle, it was one of our favourite things to do!

Book it and go!

Lovely Unit

  • 4 of 5

Unit was perfect for our party (two couples). Central location. Beautiful view and saw sea turtles from lanai every day. Reserved parking space a plus. Kitchen was well stocked. AC unit only in living room, but ceiling fans in bedrooms and trade winds kept unit comfortable. Would definitely return.
