PLEASE CHECK OUT THE VIDEO! (the Link is above)


Relax on the lanai and listen to the ocean while sipping your morning coffee or Mai Tai at sunset! This ground floor, corner condo unit is only 60 feet away from the water's edge. For months, guests have enjoyed the ambiance of this beautiful unit, while past reviews speak for themselves. The new owners will continue to care for the many repeat guests of one of the best properties.

Screened, Louvre windows allow you to enjoy the tropical breezes, especially nice being a corner unit. This condo has enjoyed many compliments on the decor and how wonderful it is to have everything one needs to feel at home. Part ocean and garden views, sound of the surf, mature tropical plants all add to the wonderful ambiance of Maui Sands, a less commercial and more like a local place to hang your sun hat.

We are a professional Real Estate and Property Management couple. This condo has undergone a full remodel: cool ceramics, granite and sea glass mosaics.

Attractive dark tropical rattan, island florals and designer touches make this a place with one mission in mind....relaxation!

Watch the whales from the observation decks along the ocean, swim in the clear water or walk 200 feet up the tidal beach to the wider sandy beach with it's cool green lawn and shade trees, also, family friendly with a little playground park for younger children. Great tide pooling, snorkeling and fishing. Low tides leave lagoons behind and expose the two flat reefs which are home to turtles and marine life. Or, relax around the large pool situated amongst the lush gardens.

The condo comes equipped with: beach chairs, beach towels, umbrella, snorkels, boogie boards, picnic cooler bag & ice chest & some picnic supplies.

Close to Historic Lahaina (5minute drive) and it's restaurants, bars, shopping, art galleries and historic sights. The Pacific Whale Foundation's whale watching tours set sail from Lahaina (well worth joining & getting the discounts on bookings) Whalers Village is another hot spot for good food and high end shopping. Within walking distance of the condo you have a super market, Farmers Market and deli, snorkeling, bike & board rentals, casual dining, sandwich chain, coffee, ice cream, gift shops and convenience stores.

Beaches to the North and South! An eight minute walk away: a wonderful path takes you past preserved, low dunes and large resort grounds along the famous, picture perfect Ka'anapali Beach. Ka'anapali Beach Park has plenty of parking lawn & BBQ's. Dukes Beach House for happy hour awaits for you there and for the sports fans...what better place could you, cocktails & touch downs!

The interior has been put together with you (and ourselves) in mind, we want you to enjoy your home away from home! A fully stocked kitchen, all new stainless appliances, granite island and a table setting for up to 4 people.

The master bedroom has a new high end, hotel quality, pillow top queen bed and the room offers a cool peaceful place to rest your head while listening to the lull of the ocean.

The compartmentalized bathroom has undergone a full makeover with ceramics and mosaic stone detailing and brushed steel fixtures. The tub/shower/toilet is separate from the granite vanity area.

In the closet you will find two fold away beds and linens, beach chairs, umbrella, boogie boards, snorkels, ice chest, a cooler picnic bag and beach towels.

We hope that you will consider our little piece of paradise and also think of it as yours too!!

Please check the calendar for availability.

Many Mahalos!

About Karen and Nathan Schoepp

I am a Canadian Real Estate Broker and with my husband, own a Property Management company. After staying in the Maui Sands we couldn't resist purchasing in what we feel is the best area and Island of Hawaii! We loved how clean the property is and how well maintained the grounds were. The building is older but this is the charm as you visit with the locals that live here. This location allows you to wind down, relax and get away from the hustle and bustle and yet be soooo close to all the amenities and ocean. We purchased on our 5th trip to the Hawaiian Islands after exploring many other areas. Maui Sands is home to us! It has the best of everything for a great vacation!!

Karen and Nathan Schoepp purchased this condo in 2015

Why Karen and Nathan Schoepp chose West Maui

Location! Location! Location! We love the ocean and to be on a piece of property so close to the water is wonderful! There are very few places that are built this close to the ocean and having complete access to the water, without the crowds. You can be the only person in the surf! It's a little piece of Heaven in Hawaii! Plus.....there are very few condos on this property when you consider it is built on 4 acres of land! Lots of lush gardens, flowers and foliage. It is the old Hawaiian feel in an upgraded condo. The best of both worlds!! Leave your worries behind and come relax on this beautiful property.

What makes this condo unique

Whale watching, turtle watching, sometimes dolphins, swimming between the reefs, enjoying being on the lanai and hearing the ocean and feeling the breezes. Close to amenities but feel away from it of all.....No Crowds!

Beach side respite

  • 5 of 5

We loved our recent stay. The unit is nicely furnished, especially the kitchen. Every thing you could want in a holiday rental was provided. There are restaurants and stores close by, if you don't wish to drive. The owners seem to really care about their guests. Please pay attention to the parking spot, smaller is better. If we come back to Maui, we would stay again.

More than Memories

  • 5 of 5

We found a perfect paradise at Maui Sands. The condo and all its amenities served us well. Cozy & comfortable inside, with a close up ocean view only steps away. Drive around Maui and you will see some of the most beautiful scenery ever. Owners, Karen & Nathan, provide equipment for guest use (snorkeling, lawn chairs, cooler bag, etc for a comfortable daytrip at any beach. We watched sunrises, sunsets, and turtles just steps away from our door. We were even treated whale sightings. Shopping and restaurants in the Lahaina area were excellent, and the beach boardwalk is a great place for a morning stroll or jog. Everything we needed for a relaxing and memorable vacation we found here.

What a great place to relax and experience local live

  • 4 of 5

We were looking for a place to relax and were we could prepare our own meals with local ingredients and that's what we found with this little gem. Steps from the water and minutes from beautiful non crowded beaches was what we were yearning for to help us unwind from busyness of day-to-day life. Certainly, the Fish Market and snorkel rental across the street where excellent. We prepared different and delicious local fish that normally aren't found back in mainland. The snorkeling rental store were very helpful to direct us to the best locations for beginner snorkeling beaches in the area. The condo was well stocked and clean. Although we spend most of the time out and about during our stay in Maui, when we were in the condo, we would spend most of the time in the kitchen preparing delicious dinners. We never felt we couldn't prepared a meal because we didn't have the necessary equipment/utensils/knifes/etc. Everything in the kitchen was cleaned and in great condition. Thanks for making this a great getaway vacation.

Love this unit...

  • 5 of 5

Karen was amazing throughout our stay. It was seamless to book and coordinate with her. The day before our arrival, the fridge broke and when we arrived all was well. Her husband even said if he had to, he'd fly to Maui himself to take care of it. The condo itself was everything we needed. Ground floor, literally steps to the ocean. The incredible sunrise and sunsets! Turtles everyday! They had water equipment to use in the pool and the ocean. They provided everything you need and then some. We truly enjoyed our stay! I'd come back here anytime. Thank you Karen for making our stay memorable. We won't forget you!

Owner's Response: Aloha Dora; Thank you for your kindness during a potential issue. When we realized that we had to replace our 3 year old fridge, we were unable to find the proper size in such short notice! We managed to find one but after delivery the door was an issue as it was a wee bit too large so we were scrambling to ensure you were not inconvenienced. We did locate one that fit just perfect. Living on an island can present challenges for owners when you need something specific and you need it immediately!! Our maintenance staff and appliance supplier both worked hard to meet our needs in a timely manner. It was so nice as you just rolled with the situation while I kept you updated prior to your arrival and we thank you for that. We try to make your vacation flawless, but life does happen and you were our priority. (I think my husband was hoping he had to fly to Maui to assist as it was raining here, but that wasn't necessary). We've had so many wonderful guests since we've purchased this condo and look forward to your return visit! We've installed an ice maker into that fridge as we couldn't find a model that had one and was in stock at that time and with back to back guests coming, we wanted to ensure it was one more thing they didn't have to worry about. Take care and thank you for your review!! Maui awaits your return! Mahalo! Karen and Nathan
