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 years, guests have enjoyed the ambiance of this beautiful unit, while past reviews speak for themselves. The owners 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 leather recliner with a great sofa bed, 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 linens, 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 (55) on this property when you consider it is built on 2.5 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!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time here at your condo. It really felt like our home away from home! It was our first time in Maui and it couldn't have been more perfect! Mahalo!

Home again!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second trip to Unit 3A and it felt like we were coming home. Lovely updated and quiet condo location. All the descriptors provided by the owners are accurate. Great location and even better for return trip because we knew what we were looking forward to. We'll be back again and probably again and again.

Apartment was perfect for us

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was conveniently located, well appointed, clean and as described. We found it comfortable and easily settled in. The location was also great-- near Ka'anapali and Napali beaches (need to drive to both, but drive is short), as well as Lahaina Town.

We enjoyed having amenities of home while away such as a stove, a full refrigerator and microwave. The apartment has quality appliances, and all the utensils and dishes you will need. Would definitely rent this place again. Only drawback was that we visited in August and it was quite muggy. No AC in bedroom (though the main room is air conditioned and there was a ceiling fan in bedroom). We had two nights (of 11) where we had to sleep in living room because of heat (there is a pull-out coach there). Most nights in Maui AC is not needed but that was the only negative. We also appreciated the beach equipment available--chairs and umbrella as well as snorkel equipment. Overall, our stay was very enjoyable and this apartment is a great value.

Quiet and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Maui Sands is a quiet condo location. We stayed in room 3A (bottom floor) with quick access to the beach and pool and walking distance to grocery stores and restaurants. My husband and I fell in love with the views that we decided to renew our vows at the beach on the deck. We had 3 other families book a condo at Maui Sands. Each condo looks real nice. Our room had a lot of beach toys (boogie boards, folding chairs, swim noodles, cooler.. etc). My family enjoyed snorkeling and seeing fishes and sea turtles hanging out. Can't wait to come back again to vacation with the family!

It was great! Felt like home (almost)!

  • 5 of 5

Nice, clean, close to the water and shops. Would go again! Everything you need is there, even recommendations for sightseeing and places to eat. The deck was wonderful for early morning and early evening viewing of the ocean. Very relaxing and a reasonable price.

A warm, enticing, homy condo and atmoshere.

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I were in Maui March 9-16th and stayed in Maui Sands Condo 3A. I am 87 and my friend is 85. I use a walker for mobility and the complex grounds were easy to navigate. This Condo is very well equipped and clean with all you need to make your stay pleasant and relaxing. We loved visiting with the neighbours and the friendly community of guests and owners. There is a lovely Queen size bed - as well as a pull out queen bed in the living room. The living room furniture is so comfortable with extra foot stools to rest our feet and legs in the evening. The bathroom has two closed off areas for very convenient double occupancy. One can use the sink in the morning while the other showers. The kitchen was lacking nothing we wanted to use. There is a wonderful deck that is a merely 50 steps away from this Condo where one can sit and watch the surfers - the whales when they breach - and the sunsets every evening. Some of them quite spectacular! And one can also watch the waves lap up against the shore - and see the tide go in and out! The Maui Sands also has a pool - and a Barbecue for public use - as well as providing some games if you have children along. The beach area is only about a block away where you might see turtles that have come to sun for the day - and there is a playground as well. There are grocery stores and restaurants within walking distance. The arrangement of these Condos is done so that there is a lot of grassed area for a very pleasant feeling of not being crowded and the flowering shrubs and trees are beautiful and well groomed. I highly recommend this Condo for a very pleasant stay in Maui where you can plan the day as you wish - cook or eat out - sun on the patio and read a book - or dig into the many brochures and explore the many many sites to see within a radius of 50 miles - some of them breathtaking! The vegetation is so varied and the smells are delightful! We would definitely return to this very clean, well maintained condo!! Thank you!!

Perfect Getaway

  • 4 of 5

I was here with my husband and 15 year old daughter. We absolutely loved the condo and all the amenities. We loved sitting on the lanai with our beverages or hanging out at the viewing deck and gazing at the ocean. We stayed 4 nights here and 4 nights in another condo in Kihei. This condo was by far, our favorite. I hope to come back again.
