New stove as of June 1st 2018! - 2 Bed - 2 full Baths - Highly Upgraded - Central AC - Sleeps up to 6.
Swim, snorkel, surf, kayak right in front of our property! This is a Direct Ocean Front property which faces the islands of Lanai and Molokai. Plus you can walk from our property On the beach or on beach paths for 3 miles all the way down to Kaanapali.
Maui Sands 1J is a oversized (1000+ sq ft), highly upgraded (granite, travertine floors), 2 bedroom, 2 full bath unit with CENTRAL AC located on a direct ocean front property in north Kaanapali (Honokowai). We are the ONLY unit in this entire complex with central AC! All other Maui Sands units only have 1 window AC unit located in the living rooms only. No AC units allowed in back bedrooms! Not us though! Central, entire unit! Our unit is located on the 2nd floor (top floor) and overlooks the pool and garden area of the property. Maui Sands has 7, two story buildings with no elevators so you'll have to walk up about 10 stairs to the 2nd floor.
Family Friendly Unit:
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!
Maui Sands Location:
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.
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.
Long Beach Walks starting next door:
Walk for miles ON THE BEACH all the way down to black rock in Kaanapli starting from the next door property Papakea.
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.

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.
