Overview

About the property

Walk from your unit direcly into the ocean and start snorkeling!

Same unit as vrbo # 981130

Maui Sands 1J: Large, highly upgraded, 2 bed 2 bath, central a/c overlooking the pool and garden area of an ocean front property.

If you have kids, this is is a wonderful family friendly unit as it has bunk beds in the 2nd bedroom and the master bedroom has it's own private full bath for complete privacy. Kids and other guests can use the 2nd full bathroom in the hallway!

Unit 1J is a family friendly, large two bedroom two bath unit with central air conditioning on an ocean front property in Honokowai. We are just a short 5 minutes from Kaanapali Resort area and 10 minutes from Lahaina. Maui Sands (between Papakea and Paki Maui) has 78 condos in 7 different buildings with lots of grass areas for kids to play. This particular unit is on the 2nd floor (top) and overlooks the pool and tropical garden of the property. Although the property is on the ocean, this unit does not have a nice ocean view. More like a "peek - a - boo" small ocean view between the palm trees. However, you can still hear the ocean waves during a swell and It's only a one minute walk past the pool to our ocean area.

Unit 1J:

This unit is a highly upgraded, spacious (1000 sq ft), 2 bed, 2 FULL bathroom, family friendly unit that sleeps 6 comfortably! And it's the ONLY unit at Maui Sands with central AIR CONDITIONING! Our oven issues were resolved and we now have the same oven / microwave combo unit which are found at all new time share resort properties on Maui.

VIEW:

This unit has a very very tiny tiny view of the ocean between the palm trees. Seriously, it's very small! Please see the video! The ocean view can increase or decrease depending on the gardeners and when they trim the trees. Honestly, if you must have an ocean view, this isn't going to satisfy you! We rent 6 other units on this property and if you have to have a clear ocean view, we have others but, in all honesty, our other units are not a upgraded as this one; They won't have 2 full bathrooms (just 1) and they don't have central air conditioning. From this unit, it's only about a 1 minute walk down the middle of the property to the ocean.

BEST PROPERTY FEATURES:

- No need to pack up and drive to go snorkel!

- Walk down to Kaanapali....ON THE BEACH for 3 miles.

Is going for long walks down the beach a dream you've had? Well, keep in mind, no property north of us, Kahana, Napili or Kapalua areas can say that you can actually walk on the beach for 3 miles! Those properties may say they have a beach but watch out...most likely it's small cove beach that you CAN'T walk on for more than 5 minutes! You'll see all those guests walking on the street down to our property or Papakea's then walking on the beach. Depending on the tide, you may have to step in the ocean and walk to the next property, Papakea to start you beach walk. But, if you don't want to get wet, just use the walking beach path which starts at Kaanapali Shores. Two properties down.

UNIT FEATURES

Internet wifi, travertine floors, granite countertops, beach towels, cooler, a few beach chairs and random snorkel gear left behind by guests)

TV's in every room, dvd Player, kitchen appliances, radio/CD Player, travertine floors & two highly upgraded FULL bathrooms with showers.

HALLWAY 2ND BATHROOM

2nd bathroom with a shower and sink

FRONT ROOM

A pull out sofa sleeper, large tv and love seat.

KITCHEN

The unit's kitchen is fully stocked with all cooking utensils, refrigerator (ice machine not connected, but industrial ice machine below you at the pool), oven/microwave and a 4 burner stove.

LANAI (PORCH) AREA:

The lanai is where you'll spend most of your time! With seating for 6, it's very comfortable and you'll be able to watch your other guests or your kids play at the pool below. Enjoy bbq'ing right at the pool and bring your food up to your unit for a romantic steak or sea food dinner!

MAUI SANDS PROPERTY:

- Direct Ocean Front Property facing the islands of Lanai and Molokai.

- Just 5 minutes from Kaanapali and 10 ot Lahaina town

- Very end of North Kaanapali Beach in between Papakea resort and Paki Maui.

- Walk to Kaanapali, black rock or Dukes Restaurant ON THE BEACH.

- Very quiet and peaceful.

- Large grass areas, large pool (non heated, but no need!) and 2 bbq areas

DIRECT OCEAN FRONT PROPERTY:

Swimming, swimming and swimming! Baby beach area during low tide! Its great for kids to walk around and catch fish in nets because the water warms up (reefs block the waves during low tide) and it's only about a foot deep. If you want to snorkel, just swim over or around the reef! The reefs are where the fish are anyway! You can snorkel, surf, stand up paddle board, kite surf, kayak or just collect shells right from this our property! See the video I put together of guests enjoying the ocean. No need to get ready, jump in a car and drive to a beac to snorkel. Simply, walk from your unit with just your snorkel and mask and jump in the ocean. Right in front of you are two giant reefs and I guarantee you'll see a fish within 5 seconds! I lived on this property for 5 years and I've seen turtles, octopus, monk seals, lobster, puffer fish and all kinds of marine animals.

MAUI SAND BEACH AREA

Since we are at the very very end of a super long beach, the sand moves up and down the beach a lot. It comes and goes depending on storms, tides and the currents but tpically during the summer months we have more sand out front. However, if you have to lay out, the ocean front park just on the other side of Paki Maui has a large beach area with sand all year around. And no, we cannot predict when we will have a large sand area in from of Maui Sands. The sand moves up and down the coast a lot!

WALK ON THE BEACH:

20-30 minute WALK DOWN THE BEACH and your at the the world famous Dukes Restaurant, North Kaanapali Beach & Black Rock. If you can't walk from our property on the beach during during high tide or if there is low sand, start from next door, Papakea and walk the ocean front pathway. We used to do this every sunset. We'd walk for hours passing and checking out all the other large resorts like Honua Kai, The Westin Resort and Villas and Kaanapali Beach Club.

MAUI SANDS POOL

Large pool area with bbq grill, ice machine, picnic tables, card tables, soda machine, book library area and two bathrooms.

About Kory Skolnick

Joe and Jackie Johnson. We are a family of 6 and bought this condo for our family vacations. We installed bunk beds for our kids in our 2nd bedroom and have an extra mattress under the beds for additional sleeping arrangements. We remodeled this unit 5 years ago and added central air conditioning and a 2nd bathroom! We are the only unit in all of Maui Sands that has two bathrooms! Please enjoy our condo and fall in love with Maui and this property! Our condo is managed by Kory Skolnick at Maui Sea Breeze Vacation Rentals.

Kory Skolnick purchased this condo in 2005

Why Kory Skolnick chose Lahaina

We stayed here on vacation 10 years ago and fell in love with the neighbors and how quiet the property was directly on the ocean. Every night we go down to the ocean deck and meet other owner and renters and sip on our cocktail. It's old school Hawaii where the plants on the property are now trees! You'll love the interior of this property! Very spread out and spacious units. Like how it used to be in Hawaii

What makes this condo unique

Snorkeling right in front of our property! Many days we don't even leave the property. My husbands snorkels for a few hours and ill read and watch. Then I'll lounge at the pool while he chit chats with everyone around the pool area. We also love the central location. If we want to go to dinner in Lahaina and walk around, it's only 5-10 minutes away. If we want to enjoy the best beach in the entire world...we drive 2 minutes to Kaanapali Beach. If we want to swim with dolphins we head up 5 minutes north to Kapalua Bay.

Very clean, and nicely decorated. Lanai gets a great breeze while overlooking the pool.

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Maui, or any Hawaiian island, and it will definently not be our last. Only wish there was more beach during our stay, but speaking with the locals it just depends on the tide. We still enjoyed the shallow water when the tide was low, and got some great pictures of sea anemone's and sea cucumbers, saw some crabs crawling on the rocks, and a whole filled with hermit crabs! But the best thing was our visit from a monk seal. He decided to invade the beach for a day - but it was fun to sea so close! Then a few sea turtles floated by as well.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for a few days to be near a family wedding. We were a family of 5 and there was plenty of room. The unit is located within walking distance of everything you would need (grocery, restaurants, shops, ABC store, bus stop for the local bus which runs on the hour). The property is well taken care of and was very clean. The property is quiet with gardens, a pool, and laundry. The unit is near the main street but this did not seem to bother us too much. We loved the big balcony facing the pool and gardens. The breeze in the evening was lovely. The manager was very responsive to any questions- reply to texts was nearly instant- thank you!

Great location and served our needs well

  • 4 of 5

This unit is in a great location, between Kaanapali Beach and Kapalua. There are restaurants and stores within walking distance. The unit itself is spacious with updated bathrooms and kitchens. One drawback is that there is not really much usable beach facing the property. We ended p driving to Kaanapali and using the awesome beach there. The unit does need some attention, as the carpet is very stained and we found at least 3 light bulbs burned out upon arrival. I read several complaints about the street noise, as the unit does face Lower Road, but we never really had any issues with this.

Really nice and low key, just what we were looking for.

  • 5 of 5

We needed two bedrooms and two bathrooms, at a reasonable price, and that's what we got. Plus you could see a little glimpse of the ocean through the beautiful landscape by the pool. It was just a short walk through the property to the beach, and then as advertised you could walk a long way along the beach. Super convenient walking to an abc store, a great fish taco place, and organic grocery store. We'd definitely stay there again! Owners were super nice and helpful.

Owner's Response: Mahalo Matt! But, to make sure were not going to confuse anyone, Matt meant, ocean front property, NOT condo. This condo's view is of the pool and garden area of an ocean front property. If you have to have direct ocean front, we have units 4G, 5C and 5C on 10 feet from the ocean. Aloha Matt and thank you for staying with us. Kory
