Overview

About the property

2 Bed / 1 Bath. Direct Oceanfront. Second floor. Endless Ocean Views.

If you dream of sleeping on a tropical beach, a world apart from your everyday life, you will love staying here. Built before setbacks from the water were required, our condo is literally right on the ocean. Click on the video link to get a taste of this special place.

Our two bedroom, one bath, second floor, oceanfront unit is the ideal vacation home to share with your family or friends. As soon as you walk in the door, you'll feel as if you've stepped into another place and time. It has everything you need for a truly comfortable stay:

- Bedroom #1 - Queen bed

- Bedroom #2 - Two twin beds ( can be converted to King)

- Living Room - Daybed / twin size

- Air Conditioning

- Keypad door lock (no keys or cards to carry)

- Free WiFi, 34" Flat Screen "smart" TV and Blu-ray DVD player

- Telephone with free long distance to USA and Canada

- Fully supplied kitchen

- Beach gear ( usually left by previous guest, no guarantees!)

- Portable playpen

- Resident green sea turtles that you can watch from the lanai (we call the big guy"Ted")

- 2nd Floor, stair access only (no elevator)

From our private lanai, you have an unobstructed ocean view of neighboring islands, miles of open water, spectacular sunsets, sail boats, soft breezes, turtles, dolphins and ocean waves.

And, whales! If you visit between mid-December to mid-April, you will see lots and lots of whales!!

Experience "Old Hawaiian" charm at Maui Sands. The spacious living and dining area open onto a large lanai to provide space to stretch out, read, relax, watch the ocean or play games in the evening. The fully furnished kitchen includes a dishwasher, microwave, refrigerator/freezer and a stove. You'll have plenty of seating for meals at the dining room table, around the bar and at the table on the lanai . We have tried to keep a vintage flavor, but for the more technically inclined, the unit is completed with WiFi, a flat screen TV, Blu-ray/DVD player, and a keypad door lock (no keys to carry around).

The unit can sleep up to five (5) guests on beds. The master bedroom has a queen size bed, the guestroom has two twin beds and there is a twin size daybed in the living room. Six is the maximum number of guests allowed by the the building association.

In the bathroom, the toilet/bath area has a door to separate sink area making it functional for larger groups.

Stroll through' three acres of lovingly tended, lush tropical gardens with plenty of grassy areas, tropical fruit trees, native plants and room to play outdoors. The property has a fresh water swimming pool, barbeque areas, ice machine and a coin-operated laundromat. An observation deck over looking the ocean provides a place for guests and owners to gather each night to watch the sunset while sipping on their favorite beverage.

You are just steps away from snorkeling, surfing, scuba diving, paddle boarding, wave jumping or just simply basking in the sun right in FRONT of our home. You can watch the kids play in the water from your lanai or the grassy strip along the beach. Bring your snorkeling gear, or rent from across the street. Discover the abundant sea life in the ocean waters right in front of our condo. Maybe you'll get lucky and share the water with one of our resident green sea turtles.

For a change of pace, take a short walk and you'll find Honokowai Park with picnic tables, jungle gym, shade trees and a sandy beach. Your kids will love it. And, sometimes you'll find a turtle basking on the beach. Stop at the farmer's market on your way back for some appetizers to enjoy while you watch the sunset or browse through local shops for the perfect island-made jewelry, keepsake or gift. If you're ambitious, you can pick up the board walk a few blocks away and walk all the way to Black Rock and Kaanapali Beach.

You will have a reserved parking place for your car, included in your rental price, but can easily walk to restaurants, shops, grocery stores, a fish market and a farmers' market. Our Resort is located in West Maui on Lower Honoapiilani Road between Kaanapali and Kapalua, a short drive or bus ride for you to enjoy world-class beaches, golf courses and shopping at Whaler's Village.

Drive a few miles south and you will be in historic Lahaina, walking through the branches of the famous Banyon tree, strolling along the marina, perhaps choosing a charter boat for fishing, taking in an evening Luaus, or just wandering through art galleries, shops and restaurants. Rent a scooter and take a drive North up the coast to snorkel in Honolua Bay. Venture further to the Blow Hole or charming Kahakuloa Village for a taste of Julia's banana bread. Then, return to the quiet grounds of Maui Sands, look up to admire the stars and fall asleep listening to the gentle lapping of the ocean waves.

Aloha.

About Glenna & Derek - Maui Sands 4G

When we are staying in our Maui home, the highlight of each day in Maui is to watch the sun set on the balcony overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Ahhhhhh........

Our unit is managed by Maui Sea Breeze Vacation Rentals and Kory will help make your stay the best it can be.

Glenna & Derek - Maui Sands 4G purchased this condo in 2015

Why Glenna & Derek - Maui Sands 4G chose West Maui

Our first visit to Maui Sands was in 1998 after our sister and her husband bought a unit there. It was the perfect place to vacation with our children, who were eight and five at the time. Over the years Maui Sands has become a special retreat for us and our extended family, a place were we can truly unwind, slow down and enjoy the magic of Maui. It is a family friendly place with the same people coming back year after year. Now the "kids" are 20-somethings, but they still love gathering at Maui Sands, strolling down the beach for a drink at Duke's or hopping in the car to find waterfalls. This year we bought our own unit from one of the original owners. We hope you'll love Maui Sands as much as we do.

Perfect Hawaiian Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Right when walking through the front door, I was taken back by the dazzling ocean views. The floor to ceiling windows that accompanied the French sliding doors (also glass) out to the lanai allowed the sparkling turquoise waters to shine, as if they were part of the condo's decor. Simply hypnotizing.

The condo itself is quite large for a two bedroom. The kitchen is equipped with all the appliances that might be needed, the living room has optimal seating with a flat screen and the bathroom is stocked with beach and regular bath towels.

There are shops, restaurants, a grocery store, beaches and snorkeling within walking distance. Many turtles swim right outside, I personally swam with them and watched as they made their journey daily from the lanai!

The complex has a lot to offer too. They provide communal BBQ's, a pool, yard games, gathering areas and you'll easily befriend the super nice residents/guests. Also, the hosts provided a helpful informational guide and were very accommodating throughout the booking process and stay. I can't say enough good things, I highly recommend this Hawaiian condo! Mahalo!

Amazing Views & Location

  • 5 of 5

I had a wonderful experience at this Maui condo. The views of the crystal blue water upon entering the front door are absolutely breathtaking!

On site are great amenities with an inviting pool, BBQ stations, and easy ocean access to snorkel with many of the "resident" sea turtles.

The condo has a nice layout and is situated in a great location near tons of restaurants and activities within a quick drive to Ka'anapali, Lahaina, and Kapalua. However, it was hard to leave the tremendous balcony steps from the beautiful ocean with a morning coffee or afternoon cocktail. I look forward to future visits.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. We agree! While Maui has a lot to offer, it is hard to tear away from our lanai with that spectacular ocean view.

Beautiful view, great location, large living space

  • 4 of 5

Here is a drone video footage I took during our stay on June 2017.

For a DRONE VIDEO footage, go to youtube, type and search: Maui Sands 4G Unit DRONE FOOTAGE

4G is at the second floor. Getting up the stairs, it's the second unit. 4 units below and 4 units above.

My family had a great time during our vacation. We spent 6 days in this property when we were in Maui.

Pros:

- VIEW,VIEW, VIEW ...

- Beach right in front of the unit.

- Location. Close to stores. Times supermarket is less than a mile, you'll find anything you might need.

- 10 minutes drive to Lahaina

- Laundry, dryer is plenty enough, close to the unit, open 'till 10PM.

- Highly recommended.

- kitchen is well stocked with pans and utensils; chinaware, plastic ware; baking sheets

- there is a good size cooler if you are going on a picnic at the beach.

- boogie boards, snorkeling sets, beach balls provided

- lots of beach towels

- well maintained grounds, barbecue grills, outdoor tables, view deck

CONS:

- There is only one AC unit, located in the living room. Being at the second floor, can get a bit hot and may not be comfortable for others.

- There is only one full bathroom.

- Presence of mineral deposits (chlorine build-up) along the shower door frame. Probably needs replacement or cleaning service needs to pay attention with it. It's minor but ...

- There are two bedrooms and it can get pretty warm inside. Both rooms do have ceiling fans, it helps BUT where my wife and I slept (room closer to the bathroom), the ceiling fan was making annoying noise intermittently. The sound is like coming from an analog clock (tic-tac, tic-tac). I'm a very light sleeper. We go out every day, walking, swimming, exploring and etc. I do all the driving. Once we're back, I expect to have some great sleep, wake -up, have breakfast and go again. Instead, I had very little sleep during the first 3 nights. Been very sleep deprived the first 3 nights, so on the 4th and 5th night, I slept in the living room. I was very relaxed when I woke-up the morning, besides, it was cooler too.

Don't forget to check my YouTube video

Vrbo does not allow links.

I highly recommend 4G...

Owner's Response: Thank you for sharing the great drone footage! It looks like you and your family had a great Maui vacation. Good news on the AC. We replaced the old wooden louvers with new glass which seals properly. Now the unit keeps much more cool. Mahalo.

Well kept grounds , amazing ocean view, nice quiet complex with everything needed close by.

  • 3 of 5

Overall a beautiful location, complex is dated but ocean front location can't be beat. Beautifully kept grounds. Parking spots are too small and often was a nuisanice getting out of vehicle as people crowd the lines and ultimately someone gets shortchanged at their own spot, the coin laundry was convinient but finding quarters was a pain (ABC store sometimes has them, who uses coins for laundry anymore?)fresh water shower at ocean ripped out of ground, the common area at waterfront has beautiful view but could use some shade to sit under. The unit while dated and could use a face lift was adequate and comfortable. The lanai needs some shade screens for afternoon. There's no beach but nice beaches are a pleasant short walk or quick drive. We didn't actually spend much time at the condo except at night as there is so much to see and do in Maui! Overall was a great vacation.

Owner's Response: Alhoa, Mike! We arrived back to our Maui home the day after you departed and the first thing on our "to do" list was to put up shades over out lanai for the afternoon sun. Sadly, the condo association had to remove the palm trees in front to repair the seawall, but we have lots of other trees on the spacious Maui Sands grounds. I hope you don't mind if I share some of the comments you left in our guest book, "OMG!! What a piece of paradise you have here." And, "Fantastic first experience in Hawaii!" We are so glad you had a great time on Maui and we hope you'll be back, soon. Mahalo.

Owner's Response: As our budget allows, we are updating our unit, while also trying to retain the vintage charm. New windows and doors on the lanai coming in June! Hope you and your family had a relaxing time and enjoyed the natural beauty of Maui.

Family comfort

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing time we had at Maui Sands 4G! We loved the vintage feel of the unit. Started each day saying 'good morning' to the ocean with breakfast on the lanai and returned each day after exploring to 'Ted' the resident sea turtle!! So cool. Can hardly wait to return.

Maui Sands Resort is centrally located in West Maui between Kaanapali and Kapalua, near world-class beaches and golf courses. We are also within minutes of restaurants, shopping, grocery stores, the fish market and the farmers market. We recommend renting a car, but you can easily walk to stores and restaurants. And, the beach is just steps from your door!
